CoolCanucks Review of TOM BIHN Bags!!

Tuesday, July 31st, 2012

 

 

 

I absolutely love bags that hold a lot of items! It seems these days I’ve got more to carry when I leave the house. My com­puter comes with me of course! I can’t leave my house with­out my water, either! I gotta have my makeup bag! My cell phone! Snacks! My life is in my bag. That’s why I was so happy to find TOM BIHN Bags!!

With air­line lug­gage restric­tions and costs sky­rock­et­ing, many peo­ple are opt­ing for tak­ing only a carry-on bag when they can get away with it. Trav­el­ing only with a carry-on greatly increases ease of travel, as you don’t have to worry about bag­gage claim at the other end, or the has­sles of lost lug­gage. The high­est qual­ity carry-on bags com­bine max­i­mized space, ease of trans­port, and sturdy construction.

 

 

 

Ready for a bet­ter trav­el­ing com­pan­ion? TOM BIHN bags—ranging from carry-ons to phe­nom­e­nal backpacks—will make you won­der how you ever left home with­out them.

We do an awful lot of trav­el­ing as many of you already know, and I don’t want to pay the extra charges to check-in a sec­ond piece of lug­gage on my flight. I bring one good sized suit­case for my clothes and per­sonal items, and then I stuff what­ever I can into my carry on bag. I mean those prices for extra checked bag­gage is absurd nowa­days! I pay enough for my flights and hotels to begin with, so am cau­tious when pack­ing to ensure that I do not exceed my lug­gage weight.

 

 

 

 

I was absolutely ecsta­tic to have been able to review an awe­some TOM BIHN Bag called “West­ern Flyer”. Take the jour­ney to go with the West­ern Flyer.  This has more com­part­ments, func­tion­al­ity and access into one bag than ever before. It has tons of stor­age options, includ­ing a large main com­part­ment! It’s holds every­thing that I need, and does not acquire that over-stuffed bulky look. This bag exceeded my expec­ta­tions!! It was just the per­fect heigh and width for me!

If you are ready for a bet­ter trav­el­ing com­pan­ion, these bags—ranging from carry-ons to even backpacks—will make you won­der how you ever left home with­out them!!

 

 

 

TOM BIHN has a ton of other great bags too! And all at rel­a­tively inex­pen­sive prices! You’re sure to find a great gift for your­self, or any­one on your list this year!

TOM BIHN bags cer­tainly gets a huge thumbs up from Cool­Canucks, and I rec­om­mend this great com­pany to every­one out there!

Cool­Canucks and The Body Shop are offer­ing you the chance to win an amaz­ing gift bas­ket val­ued at more than $100, filled with the new, lim­ited edi­tion make-up range: Cru­elty Free Make-Up, launched in col­lab­o­ra­tion with Lily Cole.

 

Cel­e­brat­ing The Body Shop Against Ani­mal Test­ing ethos, Cru­elty Free Make-Up con­tains no ani­mal prod­ucts and hasn’t ever been tested on ani­mals.

Cruelty-free is a gen­eral term that describes an activ­ity that doesn’t require death or harm to humans or ani­mals for the activ­ity to occur.

I am a huge believer in cruelty-free prod­ucts, no mat­ter what it is. I refuse to know­ingly use a prod­uct that tests on ani­mals. When it comes to cos­met­ics, test­ing on ani­mals is absolutely unac­cept­able to me. No ani­mal should have to suf­fer for the van­ity of humans.

 

 

 

 

 

Find­ing makeup brands that don’t test on ani­mals can be a bit dif­fi­cult, but I am now ecsta­tic to announce The Body Shop is a com­pany who really cares and is 100% against ani­mal cru­elty! The Body Shop prod­ucts are veg­e­tar­ian and 100% cruelty-free. Lily Cole’s Cruelty-Free Make-up col­lec­tion is cel­e­brat­ing The Body Shop against ani­mal test­ing ethos, and The Body Shop has been ded­i­cated to this issue for many years!

CoolCanucks Blog Contest ~ Wexy Bags Review & Giveaway!!

Friday, July 27th, 2012

 

 

For some, it can be hard to imag­ine a world with­out plas­tic – espe­cially plas­tic bags.
The cons of using plas­tic bags are so over­whelm­ing I don’t think I can think of any pros. They are a huge pol­lu­tion prob­lem, their light­weight design allows them to blow away eas­ily. The fact that they are free gives them no value so peo­ple don’t think about how they dis­pose of them. They are made from petro­leum, which could be used for fuel or energy. They don’t biode­grade, instead they break­down and are mis­taken for food and are often eaten by both land and marine ani­mals which is fatal. They are found every­where and many ani­mals become fatally entan­gled.
They are not biodegrad­able, so they will per­sist pretty much for­ever, wher­ever they end up. Land­fills if we are lucky, but because of their wide­spread use and their abil­ity to fly away in the wind, they can be a big part of the trash along roads and fields. If they get into the water, they look like food and end up clog­ging the stom­achs of a vari­ety of ani­mals, most famously sea tur­tles look­ing for jellyfish.

 

The recy­cling of plas­tic bags, while prefer­able to other dis­posal meth­ods, is not cost-effective. Plas­tic bags have only existed for 25 years yet the bil­lions that have been pro­duced since then have caused immea­sur­able dam­age to the envi­ron­ment and to wildlife.

 

 

 

 

 

Thank heav­ens for Wexy Bags!! Wexy Bags are kids eco-friendly snack bags. They were made for chil­dren by mom­mies and can be dis­posed of or reused. They are recy­clable, bio-degradable, and BPA free!! Pic­tures of funny lit­tle mon­sters adorn these awe­some new bags for kid­dies to have fun with!

I was sent some Wexy Reusable Bags for Snacks to review, and they are phe­nom­e­nal! The ben­e­fits of using these Reusable Sand­wich and Snack Bags are fan­tas­tic! Wexy bags are a re-usable alter­na­tive to sandwich/snack bags, and each one has the poten­tial to elim­i­nate hun­dreds of plas­tic bags!!

 

 

 

 

The four lit­tle mon­sters on these bags are so cute!!

 

♥Sammy the Surfer eats foods that are gluten and dairy free!

♥Scout the Soc­cer Player loves mak­ing healthy snacks!

♥Bai­ley the Bub­ble Maker loves to eat organic foods!

♥Dusty the Diver loves to eat raw foods!

 

 

 

 

 

“Inspired by kids and cre­ated by moms, WEXY snack bags are the per­fect way to change the very image of “healthy” food for your kids. Moti­vated by their desire to restore nat­ural child­hood fun to snack time, Carie and Tracey cre­ated WEXY mon­sters with their own chil­dren dri­ving their vision. They want to help our earth, too. That’s why WEXY snack bags are as good to the globe (eco-friendly) as they are to your child’s body. With their com­mit­ment to organic foods and prac­tices, Tracey and Carie believe that sus­tain­ing our health means sus­tain­ing the earth as well. WEXY bags are biodegrad­able, BPA Free, dis­pos­able, recy­clable, and reusable.

 

 

Wexy Bags gets a huge thumbs up from Cool­Canucks, and I rec­om­mend Wexy Bags to every­one out there!!

The Summer Dilemma for Men – To Shave or Not to Shave?

Thursday, July 26th, 2012

 

 

 

There is no ques­tion accord­ing to new Cana­dian Sum­mer Sur­vey by BIC® Flex 4™

 

It’s the age-old ques­tion… is a man’s scruff or unshaven appear­ance more accept­able in the sum­mer?  Despite the roman­tic notion that sum­mers in Canada are foot­loose and care­free, a new sur­vey com­mis­sioned by BIC® Flex 4™ dis­pos­able razors has uncov­ered a sea­sonal secret:  men’s groom­ing habits actu­ally strengthen in the sum­mer months.

 

A sur­pris­ing 93 per­cent of men shave either the same or more often in the sum­mer – and for good rea­son.  Whether at work or at play, the BIC® sur­vey shows the major­ity of Cana­di­ans want a smooth-faced, well-groomed guy.  Cana­di­ans believe that keep­ing up appear­ances at work is key with an over­whelm­ing 88 per­cent of those sur­veyed say­ing it is impor­tant to keep facial hair well-groomed at work.  And at play?  When it comes to kiss­ing their man, almost two-thirds of women (62 per­cent) pre­fer their guy to have a soft, smooth shave.  Well-groomed facial hair comes in a dis­tant sec­ond at 27 per­cent of respondents.

 

The Shav­ing Season

“BIC is ready to help guys put their best face for­ward,” says Pasqua Chimi­enti, Brand Man­ager, Shavers, BIC Inc.  “We often think of fall as the time to focus on groom­ing, but our sur­vey shows that sum­mer is equally as impor­tant – maybe it’s because the hockey play­off beards are finally gone!  The good news is that tech­no­log­i­cal advances – from piv­ot­ing heads to lubri­cat­ing strips – make it easy and afford­able to get a great shave every time.”

 

In addi­tion to great razors, BIC also offers a few shav­ing tips to help guys keep it smooth this sum­mer and beyond:

1.         Shave in the morn­ing.  Your skin is at its best after a night’s rest.

2.         Wash your face first.  Clean skin will help pre­vent infection.

3.         Use hot water.  Humid­ity and warmth increase skin elas­tic­ity and soften the tough­ness of hair.

4.         Apply shav­ing cream or gel in a cir­cu­lar motion.  This soft­ens and lifts your hair and smoothes the skin for a closer shave with less irritation

5.         Use both hands.  One to hold the razor; the other to pull and stretch your skin.  BIC® Flex 4™ razors help in this area thanks rub­ber guard bar that gen­tly stretches the skin for a more pre­cise shave.

6.         Remem­ber hair grows in dif­fer­ent direc­tions on your face.  First go with the grain, then go against the grain.

7.         Keep con­trol.  Use short strokes.  Don’t press too hard.  The four spring-mounted blades and piv­ot­ing head of the BIC® Flex 4™ help to dis­trib­ute pres­sure and eas­ily fol­low the sen­si­tive con­tours of the face.

8.         Don’t for­get to rinse.  When you’re fin­ished, rinse your razor under hot run­ning water – it’s the most hygienic and effec­tive way to clean it.

9.         Splash your face with cold water.  It will close up your pores.

 

Smooth Cana­di­ans

The BIC shav­ing sur­vey also uncov­ered some inter­est­ing dif­fer­ences in var­i­ous regions of the country:

·                Cow­boys are smooth char­ac­ters!  An aston­ish­ing 95 per­cent of respon­dents in Alberta said that being well-groomed at work is impor­tant – ahead of the national aver­age of 88 percent.

·                When it comes to want­ing a smooth-faced guy for kiss­ing, Alber­tans lead the way here too.  Seventy-nine per­cent of west­ern women say “yes” to smooth, well above the national aver­age of 62 percent.

·                Ooh-la-la!  French speak­ing Cana­di­ans are anti-scruff with 71 per­cent of these respon­dents want­ing that smooth feel­ing when up close and personal.

 

BIC offers men a vari­ety of options to help them make the most of every shave.  The BIC® Flex 4™ dis­pos­able shaver fea­tures four inde­pen­dent, spring-mounted blades for an ultra-soft shave with a lubri­cat­ing strip with aloe and vit­a­min E for a smooth glide.  BIC® Flex 4™ is sold in three packs at most major drug stores and depart­ment stores across Canada ($6.69 — $8.99).

CoolCanucks Blog Contest ~ Good Gear Bamboo Clothing Review & Giveaway!!

Monday, July 23rd, 2012

 

 

 

This site is extremely fab­u­lous, and I am excited to share it with you all!!

Good Gear sells all types of won­der­ful 100% Bam­boo cloth­ing for both men and women for run­ning, walk­ing, hik­ing, climb­ing, bik­ing or how­ever you get your sweat on!!!

 

 

 

 

Super Soft Feel

Bam­boo fiber nat­ural cloth­ing feels incred­i­bly soft against your skin.

Odor Resis­tant

Bam­boo “kun” is the nat­u­rally occur­ring com­po­nent of bam­boo fiber that imparts nat­ural antibac­te­r­ial and anti­fun­gal properties.

Great for Athletes

The nat­ural antimi­cro­bial, anti­fun­gal, and mois­ture wick­ing prop­er­ties of bam­boo clothes means that your clothes stay fresh smelling longer when you work out. Soft yet resilient, bam­boo cloth­ing stands up to your most intense work­out with­out chafing!

 

 

 

 

 

Bam­boo is an eco-friendly, sus­tain­able crop that grows wild with­out the aid of fer­til­iz­ers or pesticides.

Bam­boo fab­ric is nat­u­rally antibac­te­r­ial, anti fun­gal and anti sta­tic. Bam­boo absorbs water 3–4 times bet­ter than cot­ton, keep­ing skin com­fort­able, rather than sticky, in sum­mer weather. And Bam­boo stays 2–3 degrees cooler in hot weather and warmer in cold.

 

 

“Good Gear is com­mit­ted to pro­vid­ing qual­ity gear to smart ath­letes (at an afford­able price) that want to have a pos­i­tive impact on our planet. We are those ath­letes as well. We have a pas­sion for health and fit­ness and want to pro­vide ath­letes with a high-quality option for sports gear.  We do this through an amaz­ing, ver­sa­tile, renew­able resource: Bamboo.

 Bam­boo is arguably one of the world’s best sus­tain­able resources. With a growth rate of up to a meter or more per day, bam­boo holds the world record as the fastest grow­ing plant. And, bam­boo is actu­ally not a wood but a grass, con­tin­u­ously send­ing up new shoots after har­vest­ing with­out a need for replant­ing. Bam­boo can be uti­lized in just 4–5 years unlike tra­di­tional hard­woods that not only take 25–70 years to mature, but also require replanting.

About Good Gear

In 2011, Good Gear was pur­chased by Torin Lee.  We will con­tinue the legacy of our founder by cre­at­ing gear that  sup­ports our cus­tomers active lifestyles, while being envi­ron­men­tally friendly.

Torin is a com­mu­ni­ca­tions pro­fes­sional and entre­pre­neurer (co-founder of sev­eral busi­nesses, most recently Catch­Fly, LLC and a Holis­tic Health Cen­ter), who after some seri­ous health scares in her twen­ties, began a renewed focus on health and fit­ness. She has lived in south­ern California,Colorado,Australia and Wash­ing­ton DC — and now resides in Connecticut.

“I believe we all have the abil­lity to chose the life we want; and then become the per­son who leads that life, ” said Torin. “Good Gear is this in prac­tice — it is allow­ing me to feel good about my busi­ness and my gear.”

 

 

 

 

I was sent a phe­nom­e­nal Bam­boo Sports Tank in black as well as a pair of Bam­boo Shorts, also in black, and I absolutely love them! Not only do I love the style of these clothes, Bam­boo cloth­ing (both mechan­i­cally and chem­i­cally man­u­fac­tured) is 100% biodegrad­able and can be com­pletely decom­posed in the soil by micro-organisms and sun­light with­out decom­pos­ing into any pol­lu­tants such as methane gas which is com­monly pro­duced as a by-product of decom­po­si­tion in land­fills and dumps which makes choos­ing bam­boo a much wiser choice!

I give Good Gear Bam­boo Cloth­ing a huge thumbs up, and rec­om­mend this awe­some com­pany to everyone!

Cool­Canucks Blog Con­test ~ Ark Clothes ~ Ark Bermuda Retro Flight Bag Review & Giveaway!!

Saturday, July 21st, 2012

 

 

 

I recently stum­bled upon Ark Clothes on the inter­net and instantly became intrigued at all of the funky Retro Men’s, Women’s and Kid’s Vin­tage Retro Clothes, Bags and Jew­elry that they car­ried! I was even more ecsta­tic when I wrote them and they agreed to do a review and give­away with us here at CoolCanucks!!

 

 

 

 

See­ing the vin­tage travel bags and a lot of the cloth­ing from Ark Clothes def­i­nitely took me way back to my child­hood. As soon I saw the Retro Travel Bags, I knew I had to review one!! Not only are the styles of the bags totally old school, I also adore the sweet designs on so many!! They have an exten­sive array of awe­some styles and designs of the best travel bags, that it was really dif­fi­cult to nar­row it down to just one!

 

Remem­ber the ever-famous Space Invaders? Isn’t this so cool?!? A Blast from the past for sure!!

 

 

 

 

 

It really took me along time to choose just one to review, but I opted for the phe­nom­e­nal Ark Bermuda Retro Flight Bag! I was imme­di­ately drawn to the won­der­ful design of this bag, and was even more pleased when it arrived at my house!

In  1992, three friends on a sail­ing adven­ture cre­ated a clog that would change  the casual footwear mar­ket­place.  The Crocs™ Clog didn’t promise to  help any­body run faster, or longer.  It just felt really, really  com­fort­able.  Turns out mil­lions of Cana­di­ans sim­ply like being  com­fort­able as more than 10 mil­lion pairs have sold across the coun­try.   Now Crocs, Inc. is a world leader in inno­v­a­tive casual footwear for men,  women and chil­dren and cel­e­brat­ing 10 years of com­fort, fun, and innovation.
