Super Stylish bkr Bottle — The Most Beautiful Way to Stay Hydrated

Some posts may contain affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.

Since posting an Instagram photo of Daisy & me enjoying the sunshine on our patio, several readers and followers have contacted me about the beautiful water bottle in the photo. There’s been so much interest that I thought I’d post on the blog to let you all in on the secret!

I’ll admit that I’ve got a bit of a water bottle obsession. I figure the more fab water bottles I own, the more motivation I have to stay hydrated. I’ve got a SIGG, a Takeya, 2 ThinkSport bottles (read my ThinkSport water bottle review), to name a few, but by far the one that get the most attention when we are out and about is my gorgeous bkr water bottle!

The bkr water bottle is the prettiest, eco-friendly solution to staying hydrated at home, in the office and on the go. It comes in SO many gorgeous colors that’s it’s hard to choose just one. It’s actually a clear glass water bottle wrapped in your choice of beautiful silicone sleeves.

You can order a bkr bottle HERE and get FREE Shipping. The one I have is a pretty in pink color called “Bambi” but I’m so addicted that I’m already planning what color to get next. Probably in “Dive” which is a sheer Bali green-blue.

Natural and Cruelty-Free Body Care and Deodorant from Primal Products

Some posts may contain affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.


As pet parents and animal lovers, most of us take extra care to be selective about the products we use for our pets, home and family. This means watching for natural and non-toxic ingredients, as well as those that are better for the environment and that have not been tested on animals.

cruelty free

I recently received some samples to test from a company called Primal Products, a small Florida company that makes handcrafted deodorant called Primal Pit Paste, and several other body care products, using organic and natural ingredients. The timing was perfect because over the past several months, we’ve been trying to swap many of the conventional products we use around our place, with safer and more natural alternatives.

I’ve been spending time reading reviews online and using the EWG Guide to Healthy Cleaning and Skin Deep Database to help find smarter choices, so the first thing I did when I was offered the samples to review, was look up Primal Products! The Skin Deep Database lets consumers search for beauty and personal care products by brand name or type of product, and look up ratings for how safe the ingredients are. I was super happy to see that Primal Pit Paste is rated 0 which is the BEST rating on the Skin Deep scale from 0-10 from low hazard to high hazard products and ingredients.

Over the past several weeks Woof Woof Papa and I have been using several of the Primal Products and are ready to give you our impressions. All products are Natural, Gluten Free, Cruelty Free and contain No GMOs. Here’s a rundown:

popo powder

Primal Popo Powder

This is an herbal body powder made with organic arrowroot, aluminum free baking soda, kaolin clay, magnesium, and organic cocoa butter. We’ve been using the unscented but it also comes in Lavender or Thyme and Lemon Grass made with natural essential oils.

Popo is a cute sounding nickname for your “down under” region, which as runners and other athletes know, can need some extra care due to perspiration and sweat glands in that area…but the powder can be used all over the body. It’s gentle yet effective, and I like to sprinkle it in the hubby’s stinky running shoes when he’s not looking.

pucker paste

Primal Pucker Paste Lip Balm

Proof that this company really does make everything to cover you from head to toe and in-between, they make an awesome natural lip balm. The hubby has always used lip balm when he runs, to avoid chapped lips…especially when he was training for his marathon. I just wish we’d known about this one sooner! It’s made with all-natural ingredients including Organic Coconut oil, Organic Shea Butter, Organic Beeswax and different Essential Oils depending on what flavor you choose. He likes the unscented, and I love the Vanilla Peppermint.

T3 Source Handheld Shower Filter for Healthier Hair, Skin and Fur!

t3 shower filter

I’m participating in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for T3. I received a product sample to facilitate my review and as a thank you for my honest review.

Did you know that regular household tap water can contain half as much chlorine as a swimming pool? And that chlorine can cause dry and damaged hair and skin? I didn’t either until we were invited to try the T3 Source Source Shower Filter.

Not only does the T3 filter out up to 95% of chlorine but it also helps remove other irritants including Hydrogen Sulfide, Iron Oxide, dirt and other sediment, for healthier hair and skin. The T3 Tourmaline technology produces negative ions reduce water cluster size which improves filtration as well as help to PH balance the water.

You might think this only affects the people in your house, but if your pets have itchy skin or shed more than normal, poor water quality and too much chlorine could be a factor!

installing shower

I was super excited to install the new shower filter as soon as it arrived but had to wait for Woof Woof Papa to come home and help so that I could get some photos of the installation process. Trust me, now that I’ve seen him do it, you don’t need to add it to the “honey-do list” or wait for anyone to help you. If you’ve got an adjustable wrench, you can do it yourself in about 5 minutes. Everything else you need is in the box!
