Mosaic Three Legged Down Dog

While visiting the Philadelphia’s Magic Garden filled with Isaiah Zager’s mosaics, murals, sculptures, art statues, bicycle tires, colorful bottles, hand-made tiles, sparkling mirrors, and hand-made tiles the cheerful environment inspired me to practice a short heart opening sequence. I found a beautiful area on the lower level of the sculpture garden and as I was leaving just had to break into three legged-dog pose right here on the entrance steps.

Libre Tea Mug Review and FREE Giveaway!

**the winner of the super awesome Libre tea mug is Jennifer I. Jennifer, congratulations. Please email yogapeachblog at gmail.com with shipping instructions by Wednesday November 7.

I’ve become a huge tea drinker over the past few years, especially in the fall and winter seasons.  It’s so soothing and makes me so happy in the evenings.  It can be such a treat too experimenting with new flavors.  Loose leaf tea is by far my favorite way to make a cup of tea.   Libre Tea has made it possible to enjoy loose leaf teas on the go with their Libre Tea Mug.  If you love drinking tea and have always wanted an easier way to have your tea on the go, you will love the Libre Tea Mug.  And for those of you that still like to use a tea bag you can still use them with Libre Tea.

I LOVE my new mug.  The mug is very high quality and generous in size.  Libre Tea thermal glasses and mugs have a glass interior, a durable poly exterior and removable stainless steel tea filter surrounded by BPA free polypropylene making it health and eco-conscious friendly.  I have never found any mug that compares to Libre Tea.

The mug sells for $32.50 and is currently ON SALE for $26.00.  They also offer an original and large version without the handle.  This is definitely going on our 2012 Holiday Gift Giving guide!  I highly suggest grabbing a few while they are still on sale as they make perfect holiday gifts.

FREE Giveaway PB2 Powdered Peanut Butter by Bell Plantation Review

FREE Giveaway includes one Bell Plantation PB2 Powdered Peanut Butter, one Chocolate PB2 Powdered Peanut Butter, and one bag of P2B Thins Peanut Butter Crackers!

*WINNER of the PB2 giveaway is Michelle D!  Michelle, please email yogapeachblog at gmail.com by Monday with shipping instructions.  Congrats!*

Mmmmmm peanut butter.  I am so excited to discover PB2 Powdered Peanut Butter by Bell Plantation!  Nutty, creamy, natural roasted peanut flavor and 85% of the fat calories removed without the chemicals and preservatives typically used in producing reduced fat foods!  It is all natural with no artificial flavorings or sweeteners.  I really love it. Bell Plantation offers PB2  in a roasted peanut flavor and rich chocolate variety. I especially love the chocolate one when I have a little sweet craving.  I sprinkle it on tons of things, even cottage cheese and popcorn!

PB2 slow roasts then presses the peanuts to remove the fat and oil. It produces a natural roasted peanut butter flavor that’s deliciously rich in taste, easy to enjoy and wonderfully healthy. The directions are simply:  Mix 2 tbsp. ofPB2 with 1 tbsp. of water and stir until smooth. Prepare as needed.

PB2 Powdered Peanut Butter by Bell Plantation works really well in place of traditional peanut butter as well as in smoothies, cooking and baking too!  Try adding a few scoops to cookies (especially chocolate chip cookies!) and it works lovely in stirfrys too.  Check out some of their delicious PB2 Recipes!

PB Thins Peanut Butter Crackers rock!  Crispy peanut buttery delicious treats remind me of the Girl Scout Cookies with peanut butter in them.  Yum!  I dunk a handful of these in my milk or eat them with tea.  Warning:  they are addictive!  Try putting handfuls of them in containers or ziplock bags if you’re the type that could sit down and eat an entire bag!  Check out more of their products at Bell Plantation.

Hunki Dori Cotton & Jute Yoga Mat Bags and more

 

I absolutely adore my new eco friendly Hunki Dori Yoga Mat!  All of their mat bags are stylish, sturdy, and naturally beautiful. Their collection of bags are made from 100% cotton or jute.  Hand screen print designs or solids available.  My mat bag is from their rucksack collection made from a paring of cotton and jute with elegant black and cream butterflies. It has a super big pocket which fits all of my yoga essentials too! The bag has two thick sturdy and adjustable straps and a drawstring opening. It is very high quality and makes it very easy to carry around even my most heavy high performance yoga mat.  Hunki Dori is a member of the Fair Trade Federation and partner with Freeset “With the simple choice of making bags at Freeset, women trapped by prostitution can begin to find freedom from the sex trade.   This business in Kolkata, (India) provides the opportunity for them to earn an income with dignity.”

SUNflower Mat Cleanser is another favorite of mine.  Pure sunflower essential oil with an organic cleaning base provides a clean and refreshing scent.  I love my first practice after spraying my mat with SUNflower Mat Cleanser.

Hunki Dori offers a variety of yoga mats, apparel, zen for men and make sure to check out their Zen for $10!  They also offer wonderful mat cleansers, eye pillows, body oil, soap and one of their most popular items, hairoms!  Check them out for your yoga gear, supplies and yoga gifts!  Thanks Hunki Dori for such quality yoga essentials!
