Product Review:

All of that being said now let’s get down to business! Not only was Magnolia nice enough to seek me out I was able to try a set of their organic cotton sheets which were marvelous! It is the summer and with the heat wave that New York has been having Magnolia’s organic cotton sheets worked wonders for keeping me cool and comfy. I compared the Magnolia sheets to some of my regular cotton sheets and you can feel the difference in softness. I did some pulling and stretching of  both sheets (attempting to be mildly scientific), I noticed the obvious difference in strength (the regular cotton sheet isn’t brand new like the organic cotton sheet to I did take that into consideration) but I really couldn’t get over how fabulous the sheets felt and made me feel! I almost feel like I have been sleeping better not so much because the sheets are obviously better but because I feel now I have a delightfully pleasant relationship with Magnolia.  Maybe that sounds silly but I can sleep more peacefully knowing my sheets, myself and Magnolia have all done one more thing to help protect our environment and our resources. Don’t forget to check out Magnolia Organic’s blog either!!!

Coyuchi Terry Towels

Coyuchi Terry Towels

I have always wanted organic cotton towels but let’s be honest they are super expensive most of the time and as green as I want to be I will stick to my reusing until they fall apart and use them as rags towels instead. The problem is most of my towles are rag ready with the exception of a few that I keep around for people to see/use. I am in desperate need of new towels.
I like to bargain hunt because I am no millionaire but everytime I get rid of something “un-green” in my home I like to replace it with a greener more efficent item. Sheets and towels usually ellude me because of their expensive prices. Not anymore! Coyuchi has a terry towel line that is most definitley affordable. I won’t say inexpensive but if you purchase wisely you can build your organic bath set quickly. The colors are perfect and will definitely match my bath room plus they look crazy comfy! I am overly excited about my Coyuchi Towels.
