Best Tip on Plant Based Wrinkle Release Spray - Tom & Sheri's Iron in a Bottle

Hi There..... Do you like spending time behind your ironing board? Would you like me to tell you more about a plant-based wrinkle release spray? 😉

If you ask me, ironing isn't the worst of all the household chores. Then again, there are so many more fun things to do. Why would we do it if we don't have to? We could spend time with the kids, do a workout, bake a cake, or perhaps just sit back and relax. 😎

I remember when my kids were young, the number of clothes ready for ironing would pile up in no time. I kept waiting for the elves to come at night and clean it all up. Someone else must have kept them busy because they never seemed to make it to our home. 😭

Then again, who can blame them? If I had to choose between sitting back and relaxing on a shelf or cleaning up someone else's ironing pile, I wouldn't have to think twice. 😫

As I told you in my previous blog post, it's just me and my hubby now, so not that much ironing left to do. Our next move is not to go outdoors anymore so that we can wear pajamas all day long. 😏

Wouldn't that be weird? Can you imagine some kind of virus happening where the Government wouldn't allow you to do much except stay in your homes? What a crazy thought. 😂

Ok, back to being serious again. Let's change the subject back to this wrinkle release spray I was talking about. I received Tom & Sheri's Iron in a bottle in exchange for my honest opinion. 😍

Family-inspired, family-created, and family-owned.
Years ago, Sheri Eudaly gave up ironing and created a homemade wrinkle release spray that turned out to be a game-changer - no more ironing, no more hassle, and best of all...no more wrinkles. 

Her son Austin saw the global need for the product when friends kept stealing his, so in 2018 set out to perfect the formula and share the magic with the world. The goal? Perfecting a modern wrinkle release spray that’s efficient, effective, and plant-based (bonus: it smells great, too!). After several trial runs, Tom & Sheri’s Iron in a Bottle was born.

How does it work

It’s as easy as 1, 2, 3. Hang clothing on a hanger or lay it on a flat surface to start, and spray 8-12 inches away from the garment in a sweeping motion until wrinkles on the front and back are slightly damp. Smooth fabric downward, and gently pull to watch the wrinkles release. Let dry completely before wear.

Here is a You Tube video that I made about it - only my second attempt, so hope you won't judge me too hard 😰


Which fabrics can you use it on

Iron in a Bottle is highly recommended for use on wool, oxfords, soft cotton, t-shirts, polyester blends, flannel, heavy cotton, chinos, denim, poplin, linen, and cotton blends. Prior to spraying, shaking, and smoothing the entire garment, they recommend testing a small, hidden portion of the fabric. Proceed with caution on silks, rayon, satin, or fabrics with a tendency to water-spot. 

Is it friendly for the environment

With purified water, a plant-based surfactant, natural quality control agents and a light linen fragrance made from essential oils of only the highest quality, what you see is what you get, and there are never any foreign or unpronounceable ingredients to look up. It’s crucial for them to exclude any harsh chemicals from Iron in a Bottle, while making it safe for even the most sensitive skin, so you can feel at peace using the wrinkle release spray for the entire family.

Is it cruelty-free

They’re proud to be one of only 1000+ companies that have been certified Cruelty Free.

Is it packed sustainable

All-natural. Non-toxic. Eco-friendly. Sustainability is at their core, and protecting global health when delivering this breakthrough formula to your doorstep in the most ecologically sound manner possible is among their most cherished values.

Is it BPA-free

They never use Bisphenol A - an industrial chemical utilized to harden plastic - in any of their construction, due to its potentially toxic effects. Rest assured Iron in a Bottle is safe for the entire family. 

Where is it manufactured

Domestically manufactured, assembled and packaged products support our economy and create much-needed jobs, so they’re proud to report all Tom & Sheri’s products are designed and manufactured in the USA. Investing in products made here not only secures the future of businesses within their country, it puts hard-earned money back to work in America.


My opinion on Tom & Sheri's wrinkle release spray

Wow, this is such a handy product. I had never heard of wrinkle release spray, but I am so impressed. On top of that, it's plant-based and it smells good. This would be perfect to take with you on your holiday, too. 😎

Anyone can do this, because it is super easy. If you have students that live on campus, they can take it with them. It's all a matter of economics wether you want to use it for just a few things, or you want to ditch your iron permanently. 😊

One thing is sure. You won't often catch me behind my ironing board anymore. 😍

Hope you like my blog.....Until next time.....Have a nice day

Tips on Cute Cat Lover Graphic T shirts - Edmonds Love - Share What You Love

Hi There..... Are you a cat lover, by chance? Do you like to wear graphic T shirts?

That's 2 big Yesses for me. Graphic T shirts can be so cool, and I am a huge cat lover. Any cat-like species will do. You should see my Facebook page. It's full of clips with them. They would have to put me in a straitjacket to keep me from sharing them. I sure hope they don't, because that would be mighty uncomfortable. 😵

Because of my invalidating joint problems, we moved to an apartment about 5 years ago. The kids had left home, and the house got too big for us. I had too much trouble with all the stairs in our old house, so we wanted everything on just one floor. 😊

We thought we would rent for a few years and look for a better place later. There were a lot of advantages to our new home, but one tremendous disadvantage. This big cat lover couldn't keep animals. No problem, of course. My health was more important, so we moved. 😎

Are you kidding me? I miss those little suckers so much. The cuddling up on your lap, the gentle purring in your ear, their craving for attention. No one can resist their charm. There is no use denying, because I won't believe you, anyway. 😜

Since I am still the biggest cat lover, I was so happy when Edmonds Love asked me to write a blog in exchange for their 
Ailurophile - cat lover T-shirt. 😍

About Edmonds.Love

Edmonds Love aspires to share their love of Edmonds, WA, and bring to life what it is to live joyfully in Edmonds and the PNW region today. They love the charm and history of Edmonds and they invite you to show your love with their growing collection of designs. 

What inspires them

They are deeply influenced by the local environment, specifically, the Puget Sound, local lakes and waterways, ancient evergreen trees, soaring bald eagles, snow-capped Olympic Mountains, and countless species of whale, birds, and other creatures. 

Production

All their products are made in the USA and shipped from the USA! They handpick their vendors to ensure their process is eco-friendly. Their inks are water-based, bio-degradable, and non-toxic. At Edmonds.Love, they love the planet and want to preserve it.


Ailurophile - cat lover T-shirt

Maybe you love their independence, their cavalier attitude that screams they could take you or leave you, as long as you give them food. Maybe it's the purring in your ear in the wee hours of the morning, or when they knead your thighs with their little claws, almost drawing blood. The Egyptians treated them like royalty, and they never forgot it. CATS! Whether it be a Siamese, Himalayan, Manx, tabby, calico, Bengal, Persian, Sphinx, or alley, you love them all. 

This classic unisex jersey short sleeve tee fits like a well-loved favorite. Soft cotton and quality print make users fall in love with it over and over again. These t-shirts have ribbed knit collars to bolster shaping. The shoulders have taping for a better fit over time. Dual side seams hold the garment's shape for longer.

My opinion on the Ailurophile - cat lover T-shirt

What can I say? Of course, I know what to say about it. This is going to be one of my favorites. The cat drawing is super cute, and I love to show off that I'm a cat lover. The fabric is very light, which makes it perfect for a warmer day. 😊

It's a unisex T shirt, so if you have the same size as your hubby, you can swap them. Nah, perhaps not. Keep it all to yourself. It's yours and yours alone. 😈

Maybe one slight negative. They made it very hard for me to choose because they have so many pretty colors, but I thought the cat stood out the most in this black graphic T shirt. 😉

Another advantage of this black and white T shirt is that you can combine it with almost any garment. Somewhat more casual as in my first picture or you could wear it for work as in my second outfit. 😃

They have a lot of other cute graphic T shirts in their shop

Red Dahlia T-shirt


Bibliophile - book lover T-shirt


Mycophile - mushroom lover T-shirt

Aren't they all super cute? They have a lot more choices. You will absolutely find something you love. In case you really can't find what you are looking for, they are open to new ideas for designs. Their intent is to make beautiful products for people who love whatever they love. 😍

Hope you like my blog.....Until next time.....Have a nice day

Interview with Fashion Stylist Laurie Brucker Amerikaner

Hi There..... Would you like some more advice on women's fashion? Are you ready for the next fashion stylist interview?

I can only hope that you are, because it seems like ages ago since I posted that first fashion stylist blog interview. The reviews are my priority, because I don't think it would be fair to keep shops waiting that sent me items. 😊

I don't charge any costs for publishing interviews. Yes, I am slightly crazy, but there is no need to worry. It doesn't hurt a bit. 😕

There have been some hiccups, though, because of a change in shipping policies for items coming from outside of Europe. As you can guess, I live on the inside of Europe. That reminds me of a stupid riddle from ages ago. 😍

Do you know on which side of his castle King Louis the 14th slept? The answer is... on the inside. Stupid, right? 😏

So, because of those new rules, you now have to pay extra import taxes for items according to the value and weight of the package. New rules are the best, aren't they? 😜

Certainly not, of course, but there isn't much I can do about it but warn everybody in advance. It was too late for some, but no use crying over spilled milk. The only thing you can do is clean up the mess. 🙈

Are you getting impatient? Ok, I won't beat around the bush any longer. The fashion stylist who is my star for today is Laurie Brucker Amerikaner. She is the Certified Image Consultant, empowerment stylist, author & CEO of LaurieBstyle. 😊


How old are you?

41. Eeps! Sounds old, but most definitely doesn’t feel old.  

What kind of work do you do, or what are you studying to be? 

I am a personal stylist for real women, with real bodies and real budgets.

What made you decide to become a Stylist?

After working for 7 years in New York City as a fashion designer, I knew I had a bigger calling.  While I worked full time, I began night classes at FIT studying Image Consulting. 

What I loved about the program is that we learned the science of dress! And this really connected the dots for me so much. I loved fashion, but I love helping people more and with this new knowledge I could use the science of style to support people to feel inspired, more confident and empowered in their lives and careers.

Is fashion important to you? Why? 

Fashion is expression! What I love about clothing and style is that it is up to the individual to create their own unique message through their outfits. Whatever your fashion is, you can own that expression as you! 
Fashion gives us all an opportunity to share with the world what makes us special, different, and unique! No matter the fashion, no matter the style - when we get to self-express our true selves, we shine.


What are your successes and how did you achieve them?

I have loved each success marker in my career, from working at Glamour Magazine fresh out of college, to making my way up to the top of the fashion industry as a senior designer in just 7 years, to starting my business on my own 12 years ago and still going strong today. 
Two moments really stand out in my mind. The first is when I met Stacy London and was not only trained and certified by her as a personal stylist but also was handpicked to join her army of stylists across the country. Working with her directly, and to even tour with her was such an achievement for me at the beginning of my career. 
The second, is having released my first book, You are the Style! (www.youarethestylebook.com). It has been a lifelong dream of mine to write a book and I’ve tried and missed the mark multiple times before. This time was different, and I wrote the book of my dreams! It’s out now and I couldn’t be more proud of it!

Is the name of the Brand important to you when you buy clothing?

The name of the brand isn’t always as important to me as how the garment fits and how it feels. Now of course I love a gorgeous designer piece and owning and wearing those pieces always feels so special. But what makes a piece extraordinary is how you express yourself in it! So regardless of brand, if you are rocking it - then I’m here for it!

Describe your personal style of clothing?

My personal style is eclectic, creative and definitely chameleon like! I love color, print mixing and just dressing happy.

How did you find your personal style? Do you have a signature look? 

My signature look has changed over the years! My personal style has been my love story for myself and all the expressions of me.  


In what way do you influence other people’s clothing style?

What I inspire and teach in my work is for women to wear clothes that make them feel confident, whatever that may be. If it’s jeans and tee’s, then great! Let’s make sure it fits your frame appropriately and style you to feel good! 
If it’s sequins and glam, let’s flatter your beauty body and style you to shine every day! 
As a public figure, I strive to inspire women to dress happy. To wear clothes that make them glow from the inside out. To live and breathe their own brand or style.

What are in your eyes the best trends at the moment?

Fashion trends are always a subtle (or not so subtle) response to what is happening in the world. And I am loving how fashion has been translated out of these changing times.  The bold color combinations, the exuberance of sequins and glam, the infusion of draped dressing and comfort wear as everyday style.  For me the trends of right now are just a pre-cursor to what lies ahead.  All out fashion expression for all!  Life is too short to wear boring clothes. 

What are in your eyes the worst trends at the moment?

We’ve been seeing a resurgence of early 2000s fashions and having already lived through that time area, wearing its fashion to the fullest extent, I can with confidence say - this was my least favorite fashion era! 


What kind of fashion advice would you give us?

Having style is so much more than fashion, brands and clothes. Style is about you and how you shine. So when styling yourself, it’s important to ask, am I wearing this for me? Does this outfit make me feel like badass? Does this work for me and my current frame? Most importantly, when I pass by a mirror to look twice and say - who is that fabulous woman? Now any outfit like that which can evoke those powerfully positive and confidence buying feelings is what we all should strive to wear every day.

Who is your style icon and why?

I am a forever fan of Lady Gaga. What I love about her and her style is that she is so unapologetic about who she chooses to be each day. Every style transformation is shocking, and she owns each exuberant choice. We all should live and style with that credo. Be you, unapologetically. Style you, fearlessly. Live with love and acceptance for who you are, what you are, where you are.  

Is there something else you would like to share with us?

I am so proud of my new book You are the Style! An Every Girl’s Guide to Getting Dressed Building Confidence and Shining from the Inside Out. I wrote this book to re-write the negative self-talk script that so many women do and inspire a new way of thinking, living, and being. All in style. 

As I mentioned, style is so much more than fashion. When we release ourselves of the expectations, the rules, the do’s and don’ts, we can free ourselves to be and style however makes us the most happy! If we all would live, feeling happier every day, imagine how that could change the world. It’s all possible!
