Save The Girls

‘Save the Girls Touch Screen Purses’ began after the founder, Tami Lange, had two daughters’ phones bite the dust in the same week. One washed and spun, the other was lost on a hike. Her sister-in-law’s solution was to use her bra as a cell pocket even though she had breast cancer!
Lange decided it was time to stop the madness and she developed a way for women and girls alike to safely, securely, and fashionably carry their phones!

Pantuss LLC Warming Aromatherapy Slippers

If you want to have the most comfortable end to a busy day at work or at home, then Pantuss aromatherapy, warming slippers are the best gift! To reach ultimate desired comfort, you take out the insoles and heat them in the microwave. The dried lavender flowers and flax seeds create a calming, relaxing aroma, and when you insert them back into your Pantuss slippers and slide your feet in, that is when you reach the pinnacle of relaxation. The lavender creates a relaxing smell with premium essential oils, and the flax seeds help retain the warmth. Pantuss was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, during a cold winter back in 2012. Pantuss’s owners, two sisters, designed their products to be a perfect combination of comfort, design, and aroma. Almost instantly, families started buying Pantuss throughout the country. One of the main reasons why Pantuss slippers became an instant success nationwide, was because of their naturally scented, warmed, comfortable insoles. They’re enjoyable in any climate or season. Their international team is meticulous about making their slippers meet the highest standards of both quality and comfort, and they pass through several quality control checks between their manufacturer in Argentina and the various markets where they’re sold. Their aromatherapy slippers allow customers to relax at home in style and comfort. They are also handmade from eco-friendly, sustainable materials!
