Wilsonart at BlogTourNYC and ICFF

During my trip to New York City with Modenus I was wonderfully introduced to great sponsors of BlogtourNYC, one in particular being Wilsonart. Wilsonart are a sustainable family funded company which produces beautifully designed countertops and walls. They are renowned for revolutionising laminated surfaces. There surfaces are stunningly functional and transformative. What is especially attractive is the masculine take on some of the surfaces. There is such a wide variety of interestingly designed countertops for both the kitchen and bathroom. Not only do I love good design but I get overly excited when I'm introduced to new products. 

During Blogtour we visited ICFF where Wilsonart had joined forces with the Industrial Design students of Appalachian State University to create a chair that celebrated the beauty, culture and history of the Appalachian region of North Carolina. The competition entailed students using laminate surfacing materials and it proved to be a good experience and engagement with creativity for these students. The overall winner, Samantha Lily, was awarded with a scholarship for their design. Below is the winning design, 'Blossom'

Here are some more wonderful designs and inspiration from Wilsonart.

TALA Bath & Body

“A palm, a cool fountain spring, a beam of bright morning starlight... simply heavenly.”

I received this beautiful gift set from the wonderful Mr. Steam whilst on #BlogTourNYC. I have to say I was overly excited when I opened the box and saw goodies enriched with Argan Oil. I've been using Argan Oil now for many years and it's been a miracle to use on my skin and hair. Being in my third month of pregnancy at the time I was in major need of some TLC and these products couldn't have arrived at a better time. The Argan Oil is 100% natural and I apply it everywhere. I also use it as a hair mask 30 minutes before I wash my hair. The box contains a Hamman Glove which softens and exfoliates the skin and is perfect to use with the Beldi Black Soap. What's even more exciting is the Rhassoul Lava Clay which comes in a powder form to mix with water. This mask is so versatile and can be used as a face mask, a mask for your skin, as an exfoliant or to cleanse your hair. How fabulous is that?!

The face cream is beautiful also and is best applied after a steamy shower or just before bed. You have a spa session in one box and it's such a luxurious treat! Tala Bath & Body is available at Mr. Steam
