    Challenge Yourselves to A Workout Look and Feel Sexy, Swanky and Comfortable with Zizzy Fit

    New Year Resolution doesn’t need to be waited until the next year when it comes to be healthy and fit. I believe a lot of you guys want to be more active for a long time, but always feel lazy or something there to delay your workout plan. No worries if you are just like that, because so am I. I feel a big reason that I don’t like to make the workout to be a daily routine is I feel so lazy to change. Yes, I need to change to a very tight and uncomfortable workout outfit first and then I need to change back to the normal outfits after, that is too many works.

    What if the active outwear is comfortable and attractive enough? And even you don’t need to change back because you still look good in that? I believe your New Year Resolution will come true with the help of Izzy Fit Activewear.

    Founded by Latina entrepreneur, Sonya Samour, she hopes Zizzy Fit will encourage you to live healthier lifestyles.

    Sonya’s fitness journey has not been an easy one. She had to balance her career, being a wife, and a mother. It wasn’t until her health started affecting her mentally and physically that she knew she had to make a change. She wanted comfort and style to make her feel confident enough to want to start her fitness journey. In 2020, she started creating custom pieces that offered everything she needed to want to live a healthy and happy lifestyle. That’s when Zizzy Fit was born. Her pieces are designed and custom made to make you look and more importantly, feel your best.


    Samour designed her first collection by having real guards-down conversations with women who love the idea of wearing athleisure on a daily basis but struggled to find practical pieces that suited their daily routines. Some of the pain points Samour found she needed to address were the need to eliminate purses and fabrics that were comfortable for all-day wear and could work for any setting.

    “I wanted to create a line that makes women feel confident and secure in their athletic apparel,” shares Samour. “Zizzy Fit’s vision is for all women of all body sizes and all colors and all ages to own their fitness journey. We all have different walks of life, different starting points, but our motivation to get healthier is what bonds us as a community.”

    Zizzy Fit’s mission of empowering women has forced us to rethink women’s activewear and what today’s women really want and need from the pieces they purchase. Launched on March 28, Zizzy Fit has been offering the ideal balance of comfort, practicality, and fashion with every piece of clothing.

    Zizzy Fit is known for their unique designs that accentuate parts of the body that can make you feel confident in your clothes, whether you’re working out at the gym or cooking in your own kitchens.

    For example, the racerback sports bra emphasizes the collarbones and shoulder blades. Sports bras are elongated so they can be worn as tank tops while on the go. Removable pads offer privacy while also staying in place, a feat that many athleticwear manufacturers have yet to master.

    The sports bras aren’t the only product that has received Samour’s design prowess. Zizzy Fit’s leggings are quickly carving a name in the competitive leggings sector, thanks to inner and outer seams for a slimmer silhouette. The 4 ½-inch double-layered waistband measures longer than most high-waisted leggings, making it ideal for tummy compression. The leggings also have deep side pockets that will fit a smartphone or a set of keys without compromise.

    Fitness clothing has become more than just a fashion choice for women. For them, it’s more like a lifestyle — one that aims to transform fitness from being something you do to something you live.

    Life’s Greatest Moments Saved with The Floral Preservation Co.

    Flowers bring love, friendship and happiness. Can we save the memories, and keep the moments longer, or forever? The Floral Preservation Co. makes this impossible dream come true. The most beautiful flowers for your deepest memory can last forever.

    Ladies, are your holiday centerpieces looking a little droopy? Don’t toss them! Preserve your petals with David Tutera-endorsed The Floral Preservation Co., a proprietary method of preserving flowers and the memories attached to them. The DIY Flower Drying Kit includes microwave directions, quick dry papers, reusable drying boards, holding clips, wrapping cord, a special finishing spray, and shaping tweezers. Also available is a line of floral keepsake albums with airtight sleeves to store the dried flowers, an additional 4 X 6 sleeve for a photo of the event/memory and a note card to journal about the special moment.

    Flowers can evoke powerful memories and emotions. Carnations and senior prom. Red roses from your first love. White gardenias when you married your soulmate. Tulips on Mother’s Day. Lilies at the passing of a loved one. It was the loss of her great-grandmother that prompted Teresa Rinne to establish The Floral Preservation Co., a method, keepsake album, and new tradition for preserving floral memories.

    During her childhood, the company founder and CEO had discovered dozens of dried flowers tucked away in the family Bible, while visiting her great-grandmother in Kentucky. As the older woman helped return the flowers to their home, she explained that each dried flower had a special memory attached to it. When she passed, she took those memories with her. Through trial and error, Teresa developed an at-home process for preserving fresh flowers—and their memories. The quick and easy process, which involves microwaving the flowers, then sealing them with a spray, preserves the flowers and retains far more of their vibrant colors than pressing them in a book.

    The Floral Preservation Kit includes microwave directions, quick dry papers, reusable drying boards, holding clips, wrapping cord, a special finishing spray, and shaping tweezers. Also available is a floral keepsake album consisting of air tight sleeves to store the dried flowers, an additional 4 X 6 sleeve for a photo of the event/memory and a notecard to journal about the special moment.

    • The quick and easy process, which involves microwaving the flowers between special drying boards, then sealing them with a special finishing spray, preserves flowers and memories forever.

    Floral Preservation Combo Kit 

    “One of my great-grandmother’s flowers was from my mom, who had spent a summer with her and picked her a fresh flower before the journey home. The memory was vivid to her and took her back to that moment and filled her with joy,” recalled Rinne. “I want to help people commemorate these milestone occasions. I’ve often wished I could have the flowers that my mom had given her grandmother.”

    The quick and easy process, which involves microwaving the flowers, then sealing them with a spray, preserves the flowers and retains far more of their vibrant colors than pressing them in a book.

     Let’s take a look of the preserved galleries of what we can make.

    In partnering with The Floral Preservation Co., David Tutera is returning to his roots. The popular celebrity event planner’s career was born in the shop of his grandfather, a successful florist, who noticed an artistic gift in his young grandson- an eye for design – and encouraged him to develop it.

    Together, Tutera and The Floral Preservation Co. founder, Teresa Rinne, are offering flower recipients a way to commemorate milestone occasions, such as weddings, proms, first dates, holidays and even funerals, preserving not only the blooms from these special occasions, but also the memories attached to them.

    The very own do-it-yourself Floral Preservation Kit is a fast, fun and simple way to create treasured floral keepsakes using just your microwave! Who knew it would be so simple? Unlike traditional flower drying processes, The Floral Preservation Co. gives you the ability to preserve the form, beauty and color of all of your floral memories!

Dry flat. Do not machine wash. Linen Sleeve may be machine washed and dried.
    Sonoma Wool Company uses in their products comes from family-owned and operated ranches throughout the United States, like Pozzi Ranch, in Valley Ford, California.

    Sonoma Wool Company does not use wool that is carbonized. Carbonization is a harsh chemical process many industrial wool processors use to clean vegetation from the wool. Using hydrochloric acid, sulfuric acid and other chemicals, carbonization strips away all of the vegetation matter in the wool.

    Time To Plan For A Healthy Holiday Season

    Holiday season is full of happiness, love and laugh. But at the same time, it is also fully packed with tons of snacks and foods! Snacking for a happy reason is not in the guilty field, especially if you snack on healthy foods. Now it’s the time to shop for a healthy holiday season. Let me introduce Paleonola to you and your family.

    Founded upon the belief that choosing the right foods could have a major impact on your health and well-being, Paleonola was born out of the need for change in our lives. They pride themselves on being as real as the food they make. This prompted the burning desire for transparency in all of the ingredients they use. Everything they make is listed on the label and there’s no mystery ingredients or natural flavors to hide. Paleonola uses the best of what Mother Nature has to offer. Paleonola’s belief in real food has allowed them to develop some of the best tasting granola available today.

    Pick a bag of Paleonola and put into Santa’s stockings, they are the perfect size as stocking stuffers and of course, they are so healthy and yummy to make your family happy. You can check out Paleonola’s website to see a lot of recipes that you can make this snack to holiday desserts.

    What? You want something smaller as stocking stuffers? No worries, Paleonola’s snack bars will totally fit into a smaller stocking, and they are awesome to snack on when you and your family are opening the Christmas presents or watching a holiday movie. Let’s see what we have here.

    Dark Chocolate Sea Salt Bar

    It’s like a brownie collided with the perfect amount of sea salt. This Dark Chocolate Sea Salt protein bar packs 9 grams of protein into every bar and has a rich, dark chocolate taste. Perfect notes of sea salt hit the buds at just the right time. Not overpowering just plain delicious. Made with cage-free egg whites and real food ingredients, Paleonola pushed the limits of what was possible when it comes to what a protein bar should taste like.

    Chocolate Chip Bar

    There’s something so special about the way a cookie melts in your mouth during that first bite and before you know it, it’s all gone. Paleonola’s Chocolate Chip protein bar comes with all the flavor and none of the guilt. Made from real food ingredients like almonds and unsweetened chocolate it will be there when you need it most to curb that cookie craving and with 9 grams of protein in every bar you can spend less time thinking about what’s inside the bar and more time focusing on the things you love.
    Almond Butter & Jelly Bar
    Paleonola admits, this one took the team FOR-EV-ER to get just right, but it was well worth the wait. Our childhood addiction wouldn’t let give up and led the Paleonola team to create a bar that was both convenient and delicious. Since it’s kind of difficult to stick a sandwich in your pocket we thought it might be a good idea to take the creamy taste of almond butter and mix it with REAL raspberries. Not too sweet, it satisfies that tart craving while providing a nice crunch too. With 9 grams of protein it’s more than just a sweet treat it’s a balanced powerhouse.
    If you want to wrap them all as a gift, here is something you can find at Paleonola’s website – A Bar Sampler Pack!

    Almond Butter and Jelly: a take on a childhood favorite. Creamy almond butter matched with raspberry sweetness and a gentle hint of tart, make this a surefire sandwich swap.

    Chocolate Chip: old faithful. Cookies beware it’s coming for your title as “the classic favorite.” Clean chocolate chips tossed with crunchy nibs and smooth almond butter make us the top-shelf winner.

    Dark Chocolate Sea Salt: a little bit of this and a little bit of that. It can be hard to choose and sometimes you just want someone to do it for you. So here ya go. This salty and sweet combo hits all the right taste buds. Melts in your mouth, not in your pocket.

    Sample pack Contains 2 of each bar.
