Green’s Your Colour Inc.

Triple Insulated Bottle

Designed and Tested in Canada
Product Review Joan Matsui Travel Writer
Green’s Your Colour Inc.

With countless water bottles on the market that promise to keep cold drinks cold and hot drinks hot, how do you narrow down the selections?

Green’s Your Colour Inc. is “tastefully” number one on my list. Whatever beverage you choose to fill this outstanding vessel comes out at the perfect temperature with absolutely no aftertaste.

I have two bottles I carry along with me while fly fishing. One dedicated to hot liquids and the alternate is filled with chilled water or tea. The 17-oz./500 ML “Jammin’ Jade” insulated bottle is my all-time favorite. In fact, after I purchase a second bottle, I’ll ditch my old orange one and drink exclusively from a “Green’s Your Colour Inc.” bottles.

Jammin’ Jade keeps cold for 36 hours and hot for eight hours, although I’ve had mine beside me indoors and outdoors and my coffee was hot for at least 10 to 12 hours. The bottle is 18/8 stainless steel, BPA and Phthalate free, leak and sweat proof, with no plastic inner liner and non-leaching.

But best of all (in my opinion), the tea and ice strainers that are included with each bottle, are IDEAL for transporting your favorite herbal drink or ice cold water. One strainer is designed to keep the drinking spout free of ice or fruit and the second is used as a tea infuser to strain your tea leaves, herbal blends, and tea bags.

Green’s Your Colour Inc. can be used for coffee, tea, water, juice, pop, soup, and yes, alcohol. (Maybe a Margarita or Egg Nog, depending on your preference.)

Looking for herbal beverage suggestions? Try Tazo Herbal Tea  or Bigelow Herbal Teas.

Say “Hello” to Babytime Mighty Shield Bug Repellent

Say “Goodbye” to bugs

 

Protect your family from annoying pests

Joan Mead-Matsui Travel Product Review

 

Babytime Mighty Shield by Episencial is a natural, mostly organic and plant-based bug repellent that’s enriched with Brazilian Propolis and Flax and Aloe. The pleasant smell of the active ingredients Castor, Linseed, Cedar, Lemongrass, and Rosemary oils make this product a welcome addition to my summertime arsenal.

Nothing takes the fun out of the outdoors like a pinch or sting and itch of an insect bite and the inflammation that can linger for days. On several of this summer’s hottest, most humid days and nights, I applied the lotion to my arms and legs before heading out to fly fish or walk with my family. Mighty Shield kept the bugs away, even after several hours of activities.

Babytime Mighty Shield Bug Repellent Review
Protect your delicate skin with Babytime Mighty Shield Bug Repellent, a product I’ve recently sampled.

While some of the widely used over-the-counter repellents can irritate sensitive skin, Babytime is perfect for anyone who, like me, has delicate skin. Mighty Shield has a pleasant scent and is formulated to keep skin bug free. The plant-based ingredients did NOT leave an oily residue and they deliver all-natural anti-antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties to soothe irritated skin from previous bug bites.

Buy Babytime Mighty Shield Bug Repellent.

AhhSoles: the traditional flip-flop has evolved

AhhSoles flip flops evolved

“AhhSoles” 

Treat your feet to an exhilarating massage

My pair of “Pink Ripple” AhhSoles

When my feet ache, I am cranky.

 

“Woo hoo” was my initial reaction when I slipped on a pair of AhhSoles. I’m not sure if the samples arrived on a day when I had been on my feet all day, but the textures on the beds of the flip-flops were a welcome relief for my traumatized feet.

When your feet need soothing…

 

Women, in particular, probably have at least one pair of heels in their closets that qualify as a foot enemy. You probably know the styles I’m referring to that wage war on our toes, soles, and heels. If you’re looking to comfort and rejuvenate your feet, AhhSoles live up to the company’s slogan, “Offensively Comfortable.” They’re also therapeutic.

Better yet, they’re available in colors and styles that should be worn in public. AhhSoles are a redesign of the traditional flip-flop and available in “The Blue Coral,” “The Green Coral,” “The Green Ripple,” “Pink Ripple” and “The Sea Grass.” Each of the rubber wild foot-bed textures offers a distinctive feel and I love the comfort and style so much, I wear AhhSoles as an accessory with shorts and breezy summer dresses. The Blue Coral reminds me of walking barefoot on a cool turf field and the texture in Pink Ripple’s bed is invigorating and rejuvenating.

Arthur Grymes is the man behind AhhSoles. After playing a round of 36-holes of golf, Grymes returned home with weary feet. A “phenomenal tingling sensation of brand new funky textured bath mat underfoot” was the model for AhhSoles, according to Grymes.

The fabric strap is also a welcome departure from the material used in other flip-flops that can leave painful blisters between your toes.

AhhSoles are $30 and available in men’s and women’s sizes. They also come with a 100% money-back guarantee.

You can buy a pair (or two) at https://ahhsoles.com.
