Sit back, relax and join us for a good laugh as EncinoMom staffers open the mail in this episode of EncinoMom Unboxed 3. This video features a fantastic gift box from Teavana, the Master Grill gift set from Urban Accents – a perfect prezzie for Dads who grill and a gorgeous swim suit cover up from Heather Blond. Staffers on set for this unboxing are Production Manager, Lisa B., Blog Author Lizzy K. and EncinoMom Editorial Director, Lisa Keating. We invite you to experience these products with us as we unbox and talk about our experiences with the cool stuff that comes to us for review.
This Grill Master gift set from Urban Accents retails for $49.95. Individual glazes, rubs and spices are also available as well as a host of other gift sets. These small batch blended premium spices are a food lovers dream. If the grill master at your house hasn’t actually mastered the grill, Urban Accents might be just what you need to save the day. The flavors included in the gift box we received were; Vermont Grill Dry Glaze, Santa Fe BBQ Dry Glaze, Athenian Herb Dry Glaze, Mandarin Ginger Dry Glaze, Chicago Steak & Chop, Kansas City Classic Rub, Argentina Steak Rub and Sonoma Pepper. My mouth is watering, now. There were additional samples of the Dry Glazes which we sent home with Lisa B. after learning that she was already a fan of Urban Accents! The Sonoma Pepper sounds amazing with its blend of lemon, orange and pepper. It’s also salt and sugar free. We can’t wait to try the Chipotle Parmesan and Chili Lime seasonings for corn on the cob, a Summer favorite on the grill around here. The Grill Master collection will be wrapped up ’til Father’s Day. Then we’ll break out the grill and have a feast!
We covered this on camera, but the Heather Blond Swimsuit Cover Up is for an upcoming resort shoot, where we’ll be sharing one of our best travel tips for Summer. We saw this piece in photos and thought it was perfect, but you never know. The fit of this lightweight, dramatic coverup is so flattering! It runs a little on the small side. If you are tall and slim, this will be beautiful on you. We think it fits and flatters curvier figures, too. This is a size large and it fits snugly, hugging the torso and then draping away from the waist. The heavily ornamented neckline is dramatic and attention getting. Do not wear this if you are feeling shy! Note: it does not open in the front, in spite of the drawstring (used to customize the fit). If you are broad shouldered or extremely busty, you may need to change in your cabana as it slips on and off over your head. It also comes in a short version. This vibrant print is the Zanzibar. Love!
The beautifully boxed gift set from Teavana retails for $69.95 and contains everything you need to prepare the perfect cup of tea. There are four airtight storage tins for the four Teavana teas that come in this package. They are their most popular varieties; MateVana tea, Strawberry Lemonade herbal tea, Sakura (cherry) Allure green tea and Rooibos Chai. We recently attended the launch of Teavana’s collaboration with Oprah and are big fans of the resulting Oprah Chai tea. We can recommend this elegant gift for any tea lover on your list.
