We all know the benefits of olive oil, which is not only healthy to eat but makes a great base for bar soap. A new soap I’ve discovered is just as awesome, if not more so… avocado oil soap! It’s that same green tint and is wonderful for skin. I’m digging the Lavender scent from Bella Vado, available at http://www.bellavado.com. This company is actually offering 20-percent off their products for glo readers through the end of February with coupon code: NWYR15.
I’ve been lucky enough to see the Reverend Payton’s Big Damn Band live quite a few times, and I’m always on the lookout for when they’ll be playing nearby again. I’ve even been able to interview their drummer, who is originally from Warsaw. This country-blues group’s music is fun, loud and energetic. This month, I’m looking forward to their brand new album, “So Delicious,” which releases on Feb. 17.
During a 12-hour drive to New Jersey during the holidays, I was happy to have a huge bag of trail mix from Gourmet Nut. My personal favorite is simple Mega Omega mix of walnuts, dried mango, almonds, cranberries and pumpkin seeds. You can find out more about this company’s yummy offerings at http://www.gourmetnut.com.
