Desperately Seeking ______________ on Sale...

What are you desperately seeking on sale?

Food Therapy

Good food is as satisfying as a good sale. So from time to time (probably more than that because I'm a foodie and I love to eat), I'll be providing some food therapy. Be forewarned, I'm an adventurous eater with a HUGE sweet tooth. If you're in NYC, I hope you try some of these spots. If you do, LMK what you think. Bon appetit!

Video Reviews

While picture reveals of bags are nice. Video reviews of bags are better! As such, I will endeavor to post as many video reviews of bags as possible. However, I will only be reviewing bags that I like. Life is too short to review bags that I dislike. Plus, at the end of the day, it really is just a matter of personal opinion/taste.


Binchotan/Bamboo Charcoal: Freshen Up You Living Spaces Scent-Free!!

I've noticed that a good number of the bathrooms of the Japanese establishments that I go to (restaurants and a hair salon, NOT piano bars), have the cool-looking pieces of black bamboo.  What are they?  They're bamboo charcoal and they're there for a reason.  Bamboo charcoal does the following:
  • absorb/regulate moisture
  • absorb odor
  • purify the air
Since I'm scent-sensitive, I'm not a fan of air freshners like Glade and Febreze.  They just mask bad odors with stronger scents...kinda like people who don't shower and wear lots of perfume/cologne.  Bamboo charcoal (and a higher-end wood charcoal called binchotan charcoal) create a scent free environment.  Bamboo charcoal and binchotan charcoal products are a little hard to find (and can be rather expensive) but I found this great website based out of Philly that carries both:  Check-out (1) Chikuno Cube (made from compressed bamboo charcoal powder) which is great for refrigerators, closets and small bathrooms and (2) Sumi Charcoal (pieces of binchotan charcoal) which is great for rooms.  As an added bonus, both items can be used as zen-ish room decorations.
