Trek Bikes Feature PLUS A GIVEAWAY

Bicycles provide a great means for fitness, travel, and pleasure.  They can help create a better world, improve our lives, and take us to places we couldn't otherwise go.  Bicycling is also a wonderful way to spend a nice summer afternoon with the family!

Trek began making bikes in 1976 with one mission in mind, and that was to make the best bicycles around.  Over the past 33 years their mission has evolved to "Help the world use the bicycle as a simple solution to complex problems."
Some of our favorite children's models include the Trikester for children ages 3 and up (retail $219.99), and the MT 220 (retail $329.99) for children ages 9 - 12.   The Trikester has a steel frame, and large rubber wheels.  The MT 220 has an aluminum frame, and adjustable pedals that allow your child to continue enjoying their bike as they grow.

The kids collection of bicycles have a feature called "Dialed Fit Specific".  Dialed Fit Specific allows the bicycle to be adjusted as your child grows.  The bicycles are high quality, and built to last.

Jaboneria Marianella - Luscious Handmade Soaps

My mission is to create a soap that lingers in your skin and in your thoughts;  that stirs your own memories and that you cannot do without."

Marianella Febres

We couldn't wait to get our hands on some of Jaboneria Marianella's handmade soaps!  The soaps are 100% natural and made with pure ingredients such as cocoa butter, oatmeal, honey, and goats milk.  

These soaps are a great alternative to shower gels and are long lasting.  The collection includes scents such as Sugar Cane Tea, Coqueta, Desert Gardenia and Aura Elena.

A little about the creator - Marianella is originally from Venezuela and now resides in Dallas, Texas.  Soap making is a family tradition that Marianella has carried on.  Both she and her sisters began creating handmade soaps in their mother's kitchen and soon it turned into a family business.  Marianella has infused familiar scents from her childhood into these exquisite soaps.

The 10 oz pouches retail for $30, and the 12 oz pouches retail for $36 and are available online at www.marianellasoap.com.
