I already wrote my BlogHer re-cap on Monday, but I wanted to share a few things that I found on the expo floor that I really liked. The majority of the brands there had products target to mothers (or parents in general) but there were a few things that caught my eye.
I had a nice long conversation with one of the representatives of Boiron, a company whose products I whole-heartedly believe. It was only while living in Europe did I really discover and learn to appreciate homepathic medicine. I use nearly their entire line from allergies, cold and flu to muscle ache and pain. The products work and with their natural ingredients, it is better for my body. I think their Oscillococcinum flu medicine is perfect for travel and great for planes.
Another friend of the traveler is Dr. Scholl’s products, I always shove a Ball of Foot cushion into suitcases and they have saved the day many times. They had a great booth at the conference, but it was always so crowded I never actually got in there to try out the machine they had that measured your foot for a customized insert.
I am a big fan of Weight Watchers, I have been on and off the plan for years. A few years ago when I was deeply into my WW diet I discovered Skinny Cow ice cream sandwiches and it was my daily treat for a long time. My diet is different now and I use Weight Watchers as a guide, so it has been awhile since I have sought out their low-point snacks, so I was pleasantly surprised to see that Skinny Cow was launching a new line of candy. I sampled their new Dreamy Clusters and they were awesome! I went back to their booth to get an additional sample and they were all gone, others must have loved them as well!
Glad has a super cool new product called Glad To Go which has a built-in container for salad dressing or sauce. I can’t believe that it took this long to come with a product this cool! It’s a great way to keep your salad or vegetables (or fruit) from getting soggy. Love it!
When I stopped into the Glad booth to check the product out I spoke to Candace Kumai about her cookbook Pretty Delicious. When I asked her what the premise was for her book she said, “Eat real food!” Fabulous response and sage advice.
I spoke with a representative of Paper Culture for several minutes about the company’s green philosophy and their products. Their cards are not only eco-friendly but they are absolutely gorgeous. They have their own designs, but you can do your own as well, and one of their designers will look at your submission and improve it if necessary. Also they plant a tree with every single order.
That’s it for this special Blogher edition of J’adore.
