To me it seems like the ’90s just happened, but I was recently reminded that those born in 1990 are now over 30 years old. Yeah, crazy. The passage of time takes people by surprise, which is one of the reasons nostalgia washes over us in reoccurring waves. Currently, everything old is new again when it comes to the resurgence of Nineties pop culture!
From dance trends, to toys, food, fashion, music and more — we’re consumed with inspiration that allows us to live in the past. It’s no secret that people are willing to spend more if the product reminds them fondly of a previous time, and marketers have been tapping into the trend to drive purchasing power. Just in time for Prime Day, here are a few products from the no-so-distant past that you’re probably seeing more of these days, especially on social media.
Thanks to the successful rollout of the Covid-19 vaccine, we can finally start to think about the possibility of traveling during the pandemic. But while the numbers may be down, we still have to remain cautious and take the basic steps (masking up, washing hands frequently, and keeping socially distant) to ensure our health and safety while on vacation. With that in mind, one item you will want to toss into your carry-on is a travel-size bottle of Disinfect & Shield24 Hour Face Mask/Fabric Sanitizer.
Unlike traditional disinfectants on the market, Disinfect & Shield is non-toxic and completely safe for use around humans, animals, and plants. Disinfect & Shield has been tested to destroy viruses, bacteria, molds, and fungi, including strains of SARS, H1N1, E. Coli, EBOLA and harmful microbes including COVID-19 on contact.
The Covid life has familiarized many of us not only with the concept of Working From Home, but also Working Out From Home. Personally, I am doing two or three Zoom workouts each week, which helps to fill up the time I used to spend leaving the house to socialize with other humans. Another thing we can claim a heightened familiarity with (compared to one year ago): Wipes. Did you ever imagine that you would spend such a large percentage of your waking hours wiping things? I sure didn’t. And yet here we are; all about the wipes.
With Spring Cleaning on everyone’s minds, you may be thrilled to know that there is a wipe made just for freshening up your workout gear. JasmineSeven Mat & Body Yoga Wipes are uniquely formulated to be gentle yet effective in naturally cleaning your active gear (and yourself). These wipes contain Tea Tree Oil, which gently cleanses, while the addition of fragrant Lavender delivers a soothing, fresh scent. All-natural and non-toxic, they are safe and gentle enough for your use on skin, so you can use one to freshen up yourself and another to get your mat ready for your next yoga session!
Phone Neck: it is a thing that exists. Whether your neck is sore and stiff from constantly looking down at your devices (we all do it), sitting at your computer for hours, or sleeping in a weird position, life can literally be a pain in the neck. While working from home over the past year, I’ve started using topical CBD products to treat my various muscle aches, and find them to be effective, convenient and fun to use. Recently, I received a new CBD salve from SMPLSTC which I’ve added to my pain management routine. Aside from effectively alleviating my ‘phone neck,’ there are other reasons why I am liking this great-smelling salve.
Since we all are washing out hands much more thee days, why not ‘wash away the superficial’ with Andy’s 15 Minutes of Foam Bath Bar Mini Soap.

Not tested on animals and made in the USA, this fun and functional soap sells for just $3.95 at This Link!
Pomchies, the Arizona based company that launched the now popular Pom Mask line in response to the need for comfortable, breathable face masks at the onset of Covid19 has just expanded the line to include double-layered, reversible masks with a filter pocket, along with fresh spring colors and patterns, children’s mask two-packs and new Pom Mask holders.

On Sunday mornings, I go for a walk that often takes me through the historic district around Irving Place. There are lots tiny boutiques in the area and it;s fun to window shop.I spotted this Hot Pink Poodle Candle on display in the window of a place called Takamichi Beauty Room (located at 125 East 17th Street) which bills itself as a wellness store and ‘cabinet of curiosities.’ Despite the fact that the Poodle is perched atop a box for a candle by Cire Trudon (which retail for over $100 each) it is in fact a much more affordable product of Photerianand retails for just $15. Sweet.
