Handblown Glass Water Decanter
One-of-a-Kind Piece of Art
I love having my own unique piece of handblown glass art. I am so thankful that Bib & Sola offered to send me this decanter to use and review, if I would pay the shipping. I am enjoying using it and it is a beautiful addition to my glassware.
It’s always nice to do a little something special when you have a friend come visit. Using this decanter was not only a great conversation starter but it made the moment feel special. It was nice to sit out on the porch and serve cool water out of my one-of-a-kind piece of art decanter. I just used two small clear water glasses that I already own, because I don’t have the matching tumblers
It is the perfect size for a bedside water decanter. I always wake up thirsty in the middle of the night, and I don’t want to get up and go to the kitchen. I always have a glass of water by my bed. The decanter is much prettier than a plain water-glass. The perfect item to add to a guest room to pamper your guest.
Holds 1.2 L
The decanter has a nice long neck, to hold while pouring, with a little pouring lip built into the top rim. It holds 1.2 L of liquid, and has a nice weight to it. The glass has a good thickness to it, and does not appear to be thin or fragile. I like the pop of color that was hand blown into the bottom of the decanter making each one distinct.
I like using natural products in my home as much as possible, especially around my food. I was excited to try out Sagano’s Natural Activated Charcoal Odor Remover and Air Purifier. People have been using charcoal as a natural, renewable odor remover for many years.
KEEPS FOOD FRESH
Because activated charcoal is very porous it absorbs odors, mold spores and other contaminants from your refrigerator. This helps your food to stay fresh longer and your fridge smelling better.
This odor absorber can be reactivated naturally when needed by removing it from the package and sitting the bag outside in the sun. The activated charcoal will recharge in a few hours of sunlight. This bag should last up to 2 years by using this method.
I have been using my deodorizer/purifier in my fridge for over a week now and it seems to be doing a great job. I thought I would put it to the real test and see how it does with fresh-cut onion!
I put my freshly cut onion uncovered in the fridge. I went back later to check to see how it smells now in the refrigerator. When I opened the door I was surprised that I didn’t smell onion. I then opened the door to the freezer and could smell a slight onion aroma.
I removed the onion from the fridge and shut the door. I went back and checked the freezer later and no more onion smell at all on either the freezer or refrigerator side.
You can see in the picture above that there are air vents all over the container to let the air flow through the charcoal with ease.

This was my first time making homemade foaming hand soap. I had no idea how easy and fun it would be to make own. It really felt like I performed a magic trick when I pumped that soap pump and this beautiful billowy white puff of soap filled my hand!
Cove Unscented Pure & Vegan Castile Soap
Made From Certified Organic Plant Oils
You need to start with a good organic soap base. I am using an unscented Castile soap by Cove. This Castile soap is vegan, organic and free of detergents, foaming agents, chemicals, fragrances, and animal products.
Unlike other castile soaps, we don’t use palm kernel oil because its cultivation leads to the destruction of our rainforests. Ours is a simpler soap with a smaller ecological footprint. –Cove
Cove has also added Certified Organic Argan Oil, Jojoba Oil, Hemp Oil, Olive Oil, and Vegetable Glycerin to their Castile soap to make it more moisturizing. I still add a little more V-6 oil because I really want my foaming soap to be extra moisturizing.
Organic Foaming Hand Soap DIY Recipe
Add all your ingredients to your foaming soap dispenser and give a little swish to combine the ingredients. I usually give my dispenser a swish everyday to make sure the ingredients stay combined, because water and oil tends to separate.

I have used Konjac sponges to wash my face for a few months now and I really love the results. Lately I have used the Ashieda Konjac Sponge that they sent me to review. I have oily skin but get dry patches on my face and I have tried so many ways to exfoliate my face. I am not using commercial facial cleansers to cleanse and exfoliate my face anymore because of all the harsh chemicals and toxins. Ashieda Konjac sponges are made from natural Konjac vegetable fiber with collagen and they do not add preservatives, coloring or additives. It is completely biodegradable, naturally sustainable and environmentally safe.
The sponge exfoliates dead skin cells while leaving behind a soft film that will nourish and protect your skin with additional collagen. It can tighten and plump your skin, fight wrinkles by softening the keratin structure and repairing the elastin fiber needed to keep skin from sagging. It is safe for all skin types, even sensitive skin.
I love the way it makes my skin feel after using it, and I have very sensitive skin. I use the sponge alone without adding a cleanser. It never leaves my face irritated or red, just soft and clean feeling, never dry. I can really tell a difference with the added collagen that this sponge has that the others didn’t. The sponges really plumps up and gets very soft after it has absorbed enough water.
