burningtorchSometimes, companies offer such great products that they get an orGLAMic shout-out more than once!  Burning Torch is one of those companies.  Last year, I couldn’t resist their recycled cashmere striped sweaters for men, and today the chill in the Southern California air is making me think about how great a Recycled Cashmere Hoodie would feel.  There are 30 styles of sweaters -from cardigans to vests- that are made out of repurposed, vintage cashmere.  Click here to browse the women’s selection and here for the men’s options.  Either way, these orGLAMic fashions are sure to keep you (and loved ones, if you’re already holiday shopping!) orGLAMically warm.

Picture 2I’ve always thought ‘soy candles’ when I hear Pacifica, but little did I know that they have orGLAMic Body Butter that is to die for!  The Tuscan Blood Orange scent, pictured above, is divine, but I could easily go for Malibu Lemon Blossom or Medittareanean Fig.  All these body butters are made of natural ingredients, including paraben-free shea butter, almond and safflower oils, and the unique fragrances come from essential and natural oils.  Click here to check out all the orGLAMic body butter’s and here to browse the rest of the collection, including perfumes and soaps.

miniotOkay, okay, the men have spoken, and they want to be represented on orGLAMic!  Stay tuned for MANLY MONDAYS debuting next week, but for now check out the orGLAMic Miniot iWood collection.  These beautiful wood cases, available for iPhones and a variety of iPods, are made from wood from well managed forests.  I personally like the walnut wood, but you can choose from mahogany, oak, cherry, and padouk.   These eco-friendly alternatives can be personalized with a monogram, logo or personal message (and you all know how much I love monograms!)  Click here to check out the entire orGLAMic collection.
