Mermaid Pillows – Cuddly Sensory Pillows With A Positive Message

May 22, 2017

I found a cute gift that’ll give my kids a little something fun to do while their trying to drift off the sleep – which usually takes forever. Not only is it sweet and cute, soft and cuddly, fun to play with, but they have positive messages on one side. LOVE.

The Mermaid Uplifting Pillow Collection . Each pillow features a different inspirational message on the cover, plus colorful sequins on the back that you can “draw” on with the simple swipe of a finger or hand.

As May is Mental Health Awareness Month, it’s the perfect time to draw attention to the incredible mental health benefits of these adorable pillows.

For example!

“My 85-year-old mother is living with dementia in a nursing home. While she has shown little interest in anything the past couple years, your BELIEVE pillow is something she can sit and play with for literally hours.” -Lisa B.

“My son has sensory issues and I thought this would be perfect for physical therapy and it has been! We are also using it to draw shapes, letters and numbers to begin teaching that as well!”

I just shared one with a parent who has two sons with sensory issues and he freaked – as in MY KIDS WOULD LOVE THIS!

They are totally affordable ($34 and up) and make excellent gifts!

BIB&SOLA: Glassware As Art And Activism

October 19, 2016

“A stylish way of drinking, an elegant way of giving” 

Available at BURKELMAN. Visit shopburkelman.com

Kira Heuer is doing cool shit. She’s one of those people you ASAP fall in love with upon meeting. She warm, open, funny and downright delightful. Kira is one of those kinds of very special women you feel like you’ve known your whole life. And the fact that she is doing wonderful things for the world fills you with all sorts of warm fuzzies. And then you’ll want to be her BFF. But wait, that’s not all.

Kira is the mastermind behind Bib&Sola, a line of exquisite glassware that offers a conscious alternative to plastic. Bib&Sola (Latin for “drink and comfort”) evolved from Kira’s devotion to saving the world from so much waste, an intense passion about how we drink water and an uncanny eye for art, beauty and aesthetics.

Bib&Sola endeavors to replace plastic bottled water with glass in a manner that is both chic and functional and aspires to create a global community where each and every person takes responsibility and action from an inspired position.”

The handblown drinking vessels and carafes come in a glorious array of colors that look like they’ve been freshly dipped in both rich and muted hues of the color wheel. You’ll hold a glass in your hand and just start spinning it around, marveling at its simple beauty. But it’s not just a sculptural piece to swoon over. It’s much, much more. Besides the fact that holding one in my hand immediately took my experience of drinking water to a whole new level of connection, Bib&Sola is also on a mission to think and live green.

For your holiday gifting, a Bib&Sola set takes the cake. There is not a person on earth who would not drool over it. This is one of those objects of art, environment and wellness that I am most proud to have featured here on Groomed LA as it really is a coming together of so much of what I am about.

Bib&Sola has received a well deserved amount of glorious press and it seems that anyone who comes into contact with it perks up and takes note.

Bib&Sola also is on a mission to curb the exorbitant amount of plastic pollution created by corporations with its #ONEVERYDESK campaign.

“By purchasing our glassware carafe and drinking sets, one would go on each desk creating a beautiful work atmosphere. The corporation would take responsibility for a water filtration system (we have our own suggested water filtration companies and they are incredibly easy to install.) What happens next? …. the great grand Press story along with a work atmosphere that is both health conscious and positively productive.”

They invite corporations from fashion houses to tech giants to curb their waste and “create an atmosphere for innovative and powerful action. ”
