Serena and Lily’s Calistoga Bath Collection

There’s nothing I love more than soft sheets and plush towels! Remember I’m the gal who buys them straight from hotels, comparing every kind of “soft” out there to make sure that’s what’s happening in our house – for us on a daily basis, and our loved guests.

Serena and Lily sent me a set of their towels from their newest line, the Calistoga Bath Collection. These towels are made from the world’s finest Turkish Aegean cotton – which means – fluffy! Soft! Absorbent! And valid for one week only, Serena and Lily is offering 15% percent off! Just use discount code: TOWELCRUSH15.

Oh and the sand pink color, I mean of course. It’s nice that the Mr. and I have our own bathrooms. It makes for a happy marriage and that I can have pink towels! *wink*

They are so soft to the touch it’s like you’re wrapping your body up in the best bath towels out there. They have long cotton loops so they will absorb the water which means quicker drying time – like towel drying your hair in the summer time.

Towel dried hair is one of my favorite things about summer! It’s so great to not have to use any more heat than what’s outside and your hair is healthier.

Getting new towels might seem like an afterthought but I insist they are the overlooked luxuries in life. Soft sheets, comfy pillows, soft lofty towels, they make everyday living so extravagant – you deserve to indulge in the simple pleasures around your home.

Serena and Lily’s Calistoga Bath Collection comes in a variety of colors to suit any decor preference or just to give you a little cheer when you step out of the bath. Don’t forget to claim your 15% off – TOWELCRUSH15.

Saving space with CleverMade Collapsible Crates + a Giveaway!

Let me tell you the story about how I discovered these collapsible crates and totes by CleverMade. I was on Amazon searching for a collapsible cloth tote because my best friend had one at the maternity ward when I went to visit and she had it filled with her take home baby stuff (I’m so good at making up names for things). I was like – that’s genius for space and so my search began. I stumbled from item to item and then came across these collapsible crates!

SOLD! I started to fill up my online cart with every single item in every color, ones with handles, crates and totes, and then I stopped and thought of you, yes you my reader! If I went this nutso over it, then you would too – because we all want efficiency in life. We all want solutions that are quick, compact and affordable and so I reached out and said, Listen, CleverMade, the two of us are like efficiency besties and we gotta work together. Lucky for me, they agreed and they also want to gift one of you a 3-pack of crates, your choice – see end of post to enter.

45 liter in fuchsia – 2 pack / 45 liter in sapphire – 2 pack

I love that these crates collapse and also come in fun colors. I can keep one or two in my car, one along side my washer, put some in my photostudio and when not in use – they collapse and I can store them on top of each other. Because we do not have room to spare around our home for bulky storage tubs. If you want handles for grocery shopping, they have that option too.

So when I headed to shoot these at my friend Amber’s newly remodeled vacation home, I brought all of my blogging goodies with me in these utility crates! See, I knew I needed every size, variety and color for my needs.

64 liter crate in kiwi – 3 pack

And for those who need heavy duty organizing –

^^ For durable transporting here’s a more heavy load rugged crate that can hold up to 132 lbs.! That’s more than I can even carry, so I’m not even sure I’ll ever fill mine that heavy but hey, it exists for industrial cargo, contractors, restaurant caterers, bulky stuff!  Pro-grade 15.8 – 3 pack

Now back to the collapsible totes, this darling pop up laundry hamper is great for not only laundry but sports gear, the beach too.

It comes in different patterns and holds 2 loads of laundry, up to 55 lbs. >> Snapbasket Laundrycaddy in Lola.

And now – the fun part after I showed you these efficient goodies, a giveaway!


One winner will receive a 3-pack of CleverCrates, winner’s choice of color and size, courtesy of CleverMade! Leave a comment below and that’s it. Must be a US resident. Winner will be selected at random on July 28, comments will close on this post and winner notified by email.
