Ridge Merino - 2020 Summer Fun Summer Travel Gift Ideas and Buying Guides


From Ridge Merino

Ridge Merino® uses Merino wool and other natural fabrics to develop clothing that performs as well in daily life as it does in the wildest outdoor conditions. Every purchase gives back through our partnership with 1% for the Planet.

Located in Mammoth Lakes, Calif., Ridge Merino develops premium Merino wool base layers, mid layers and accessories that perform as well in daily life as they do in the wildest outdoor conditions. Ridge is a proud member of the organization 1% For the Planet, a global movement of companies donating at least 1% of annual sales to environmental nonprofits.

Merino wool is the gold standard in terms of athletic performance apparel – noted for its breathability, warmth and comfort. The complicated structure of Merino wool regulates body temperature by absorbing and wicking moisture away from the skin and the fibers trap air to insulate more efficiently. This natural “climate control” means Ridge baselayers insulate when it’s cold and let heat escape when temperatures rise. Also, its antimicrobial qualities resist the growth of bacteria that cause body odor, allowing the wearer to feel fresher longer. All this occurs naturally, without the use of chemicals. Wool is an entirely natural, renewable and biodegradable fiber.

Unlike the coarse, scratchy feel of traditional wool, Merino sheep produce much smoother and finer fiber. The finer the wool, the softer it feels against your skin, like a very soft cotton. Ridge Merino premium wool comes from Merino sheep raised on the natural grasslands of Australia and New Zealand and is sourced from certified-humane Merino farms.

Society Socks

Super fun, super soft, super great SOCKS that not only feel good, but do good!

Society Socks - 2020 Summer Fun Summer Travel Gift Ideas and Buying Guides


From Society Socks

Bold Socks with a Social Cause!

Socks are the least donated, but most needed clothing item. Since homeless shelters only accept new socks, it’s much more difficult to donate them compared to other used clothing. Society Socks will change this.

Society Socks is all about fostering a community of people that care about each other’s well-being. A gesture as small as donating one pair of socks leads the way to a better society. A pair of socks is a small stepping stone towards greater change. All we need to do, is set the gears in motion.

As young and aspiring entrepreneurs, we realized that one of the most effective ways to drive change is through social entrepreneurship. From this, the Society Socks pair for pair model was born. With every pair of socks that is purchased, we will donate a pair to the Covenant House Toronto, an organization helping the city’s homeless youth. Let’s change the world together.

Pevonia Botanica World of Wellness - 2020 Summer Fun Summer Travel Gift Ideas and Buying GuidesFrom Pevonia

The leader in delivering natural skincare solutions to the finest spas and professional aestheticians worldwide, Pevonia® introduces a new addition to the Power Repair® Age Correction Line, the Rapid-Restore Neck & Chest Serum and Cream.
Scientifically formulated to deliver rapid, visible results, the Rapid-Restore Neck & Chest Serum and Cream was created as a solution to one of the primary aging concerns. As we start losing Collagen production in our early 20s, the area between the chin and lower part of the chest is quick to reveal the signs of aging and sun damage. It is one of the most neglected, yet most delicate, areas of the body. The neck, décolleté, and chest areas are easily affected by our nutritional choices, weight fluctuations, exercise habits, lack of sunscreen use, and even our sleeping patterns and positions.
Harnessing the power of a breakthrough blend of double peptides and key active ingredients, Pevonia’s Power Repair Rapid-Restore Neck & Chest Serum and Cream delivers astonishingly visible results that improve with continued application. The 2-in-1, double pump system synergizes the action of a powerhouse serum and an ultra-repairing cream in a convenient, easy to use bottle, which is recommended for use by all skin types. Formulated for quick and easy absorbency, this revolutionary duo delivers maximum results for sculpting, tightening, and smoothing of the neck and chest.
The new Rapid-Restore Neck & Chest Serum and Cream joins the family of products in the Power Repair Age Correction Line. The collection includes such best sellers as the Hydrating Cleanser, Hydrating Toner, Age-Defying Marine Collagen Cream, and Eye Contour. To view the complete Power Repair Age Correction Line, visit www.pevonia.com/power-repair.

Pink MahogHany

“If you’re having a hard time finding a quality hand sanitizer due to a growing shortage, we’ve got you covered (literally.)  Each hand sanitizer is created with two main goals in mind – to add an extra layer of protection and to replenish moisture loss. As a bonus, a microbial-fighting *essential oil is added to the custom formula. With each use, you can have confidence in knowing an essential oil is working in the background.” You just cannot know how thrilled I am with these hand sanitizers…and I think that I may have fallen in love with Pas Encore Nommé.  The scent is luscious!

Pink MahogHany Fragrances - 2020 Summer Fun Summer Travel Gift Ideas and Buying Guides

From Pink MahogHany

Meticulously crafted olfactory expression hand-blended by fragrance enthusiast and musician, Chavalia and formulated in small batches for exclusive, optimal enjoyment. A good fragrance calls; an exceptional fragrance whispers.

Chavalia was born a country girl, where time seemed to have no end. The air was pure, and berry bushes and pine trees were the outdoors’ fragrance of choice. Although raised in a rural part of town, she always envisioned international travel and wondered what different parts of the world smelled like, until she had the oppprtunity to visit many of them.

Chavalia also enjoyed challenging herself on recognizing peoples’ scent often undetectable to most of the household. She had the ability to correctly guess who’d been over to visit, simply by the scent left after they’d gone home.

Needless to say, her sense of smell is one characteristic that is definitely self-taught and sharpened over the years, so it’s not completely surprising to most that as a musician, she not only create songs but ‘scent music’ as well – using notes that play harmoniously together; no matter how different.
Welcome to PM® Fragrances – where scent intrigue meets an unrestrained, uninhibited and unduplicated product.

Michelle Moran is an established entrepreneur with more than 15 years of apparel industry experience and a recognized leader in promoting social causes through fashion.

Michelle’s vision arrived from the experienced she had while wearing post surgery compression garments recommended by her doctor.
