Glass Storage ~ Pyrex

I relish getting out of the office and dropping in at one the many sustainable, organic lunch spots in the City, but even more so I savor a healthy lunch from home, put together just the way I like it.  Because of the frightening news and links on the danger of BPA in plastics and in the lining food cans, the sole way I am going to store my delicious meals is in glass.  After searching and deliberating on different products in the marketplace, cost, and quality we purchased Pyrex® glass storage containers for the home and the office kitchen.

The 10 piece Pyrex® set we have has an array of functional shapes and sizes, each individual piece can be used for baking, cooking, microwaving, serving, and storage.  You can heat, cool, or freeze the containers as well as clean them in the dishwasher.   The plastic lids are BPA free and the  nonporous glass won’t absorb any funky smells.  Another reason we chose this  product is that it is made in the USA and comes with a 2 year limited warranty.  The website lists the price at $35, but we picked our’s up at a Macy’s One Day sale for $17 + tax.

Grow Baby Grow .. then BLOOM

My fabulous sister and sister-in-law will be adding to the population with their own little beautiful creations in the very near future. This sent me on a mission to find the absolute best (obvious first time Aunt) for my little bundles of joy.  On a recent weekend jaunt to San Fran we stumbled into a baby boutique called Giggle and discovered the Bloom Baby Alma crib.  I, at first, fell in love with the sleek modern design and its vibrant orange color but lo and behold it is SUPER ecofriendly!  Bloom baby was developed by “four overprotective men” and they didn’t miss a beat with the organic crib mattress and sheets to fit.

We love cozy, beautiful spaces that are utilized to the fullest and the mini crib fits that lifestyle perfectly.  If you believe in occupying quarters the size of Versailles, with a modern flair, the full size will fit you perfectly (P.S. cozy is the “in” thing).
