Experience Ecuador at your Door Step with Free US Shipping!

A product was given for review for my honest opinion. No other compensation was given.


Looking for interesting gifts that women are going to enjoy this holiday season? Look no further than the great products from Ecuador!

As the world’s thirds largest exporter of cut flowers, myths surround how Ecuador’s roses became so popular. Some believe its location on the equator makes roses grow perfectly straight, but more likely the natural light gives gardeners the ability to grow great roses all year round. Thier chocolate is considered best in the world, barely 5% of cacao produced in the world is given the prestigious label of Fine Aroma and Ecuador produces nearly 63% of that fine aroma flavored cacao worldwide. The list goes on and on, however U.S. consumer’s access to these products are limited by high shipping costs and inconvenient delivery methods.


Now, Sense Ecuador, the Ecuadorian experience destination website, is enabling shoppers to receive curated, premium products and gourmet foods from all regions of Ecuador to your doorstep. Best of all, it comes with free and quick shipping to the US.

As a socially-focused and environmentally conscious shopping destination, all of their exclusive flowers, gourmet specialties and accessories are made by expert artisans and conscious farmers from their country. Through their process, they ensure that you receive the highest quality products, and in return, the persons and communities receive the benefits of your purchase.

I got to receive two amazing products from Sense Ecuador - both chocolate and flowers! So tasty AND beautiful!

These fine 66% chocolate chips by Hoja Verde are made with premium organic cocoa beans grown in the tropical lowlands of Ecuador, the most biodiverse country on earth. Ecuadorian cocoa has long been recognized as the world’s finest beans. Its ‘Arriba’ variety brings an unequalled depth in aroma and flavor.

Give Yourself (Or Others!) the Gift of New Clothing This Holiday Season!

A product was given for review for my honest opinion. No other compensation was given.

Christmas is known as the time of giving gifts...to your family, friends, and even yourself. This year, I found myself getting MYSELF presents and that doesn't happen often. Starting a new teaching job this year out of the home found me with a lack of business/professional clothes so this Christmas, I got myself the gift of clothes! :)

And not just any clothes - clothing from prAna, one of my favorite clothing companies of all time. Their one of my favorites because of their mission of making things better by giving...quality, durable and stylish clothing that's thoughtfully designed. They also maintain great sustainability: Fair Trade, recycled clothing, hemp clothing and traceability are all examples of how conscious thyy try to be.

A new outfit that looks and feels good can be transformative, both to others and yourself, and we all deserve that.

This year I am feeling great (and comfy and warm!) in the Delaney Duster in Coal from prAna!


The Delaney Duster features a Cable Knit Patter and is designed with a fold over Rib Knit Collar. This chunky weight sweater knit cardigan is cut for a relaxed fit and finished with a cross over snap closure at the front left shoulder!



I love how unique and comfortable this Duster is from prAna. You can wear it with the collar open or crossed over and it is so warm and comfortable for those cold winter days! I did have a hard time finding the right sizing with prAna clothing so let me help you with this item and I recommend going a size smaller than you normally wear.

I also gifted myself with a pair of Kara Jean in Black! These are so great for dressing up or wearing casually and they are great for work or play! Plus, they look GREAT with the Delaney Duster!



The Kara Jean is a fitted pant cut with a low rise, narrow leg and traditional 5-pocket styling. 

This jean is made from organic cotton, soft stretch "Kara" denim that allows for breathability and movement. The leg can be easily cuffed or worn long. 


These pants are super comfortable and I LOVE the organic cotton material. I recommend with this item to order a size larger than you normally wear. 

For once, I splurged on myself and bought myself some Christmas gifts this year - and I am so happy I did! I am loving my new prAna clothing along with their mission and sustainability!

Buy It:

You can purchase all prAna clothing from their website.

Plus, make sure sure to use this unique code to get 15% off YOUR prAna gear: CMRS17
