Product:

Collar Perfect Compact Travel and Touch-up Iron

Research:

I tend to do a lot of long weekend getaways throughout the year. But firstly before I go any further let me just state that I HATE ironing and tend to mostly pack clothes that don’t require any ironing. However, since I have not yet mastered the art of packing by rolling my clothes up some things still end up getting wrinkled while en route to my destination.

Additionally – I am a bit of a germaphobe, so the idea of using random irons in hotels and/or rented homes/condos for the weekend does not appeal to me AT ALL! I’ve been the victim a number of times to burnt blouses and the ever-so-hated stained clothes as a result of the rusty water coming out of the provided irons.

After watching the video on our product page for this compact iron I was eager to try it out since it can be used for much more than just the collar. The bonus here for me was that it doesn’t require the use of water. It was also like nothing I’ve personally seen before, so I was even more excited to get my hands on it.

Hypothesis:

I predict that the Collar Perfect-Compact Travel and Touch-up Iron will be added to my list of traveling must-haves!

Gift Lab: Celebration!

May 4, 2012

Background: The Himalayan Salt Tequila glasses, $30, are a finely veined, translucent appearance of rose quartz, but they are actually carved from the highest quality, food grade, Himalayan pink salt. They are long lasting and won’t be easily dissolved. They are also 100% antibacterial!

Hypothesis: I have a hard time replicating that perfectly salted glass look that all of my favorite restaurants and bars have effortlessly achieved each time I stop in.

Every time I have tried to do it at home when hosting a girls night in or on my way out with some of me fave gal pals I find myself either:

1-mistakenly forgetting I handled salt and rubbing my eye (ouch)
2-making a mess of my counter/floors
3-having some of the salt crystals make a run for it before I even hand it off to my friend/guest

I predict this will no longer be a problem for me now with these beautifully hued Himalayan Salt Tequila glasses

Experiment:

To ensure that this truly works I will need the following ingredients

-A bottle of yummy tequila
-Lime
-Four Himalayan Salt Tequila glasses
-A few friends 21 and over


Next step is the use of the shot glasses followed by fun times!



Conclusion:

Everyone really loved the Himalayan Salt Tequila glasses, so much so we had quite a number of rounds of shots. (I mean we wanted to make sure they really worked well). What I loved about them was how much of a conversation starter they were. I also liked the fact that I didn’t have to try so hard to perfect the salted rim effect, it was just pour and go.

As weird as this may sound the only thing I didn’t like was how salty they were. After a few rounds if you let the tequila sit for like a minute or so in the shot glass the salt dissolves a little more causing the shot to be all types of salty. This was not the case for all of the shot glasses strangely enough, just one of them did this. This one glass was sort of reshaping before our eyes.

Side note: Be sure that you let them drain out so that the bottom doesn’t dissolve sooner. The liquid pooled just a little on the bottom. Rest assured though these glasses aren’t dissolving anytime soon but when it does start to you get a shot glass that holds more tequila along the way!

My friends and I can’t wait to use these again.
