Totally Neat - Portland General Store

I have struggled so much with what to name my Tuesday feature that will show off some things or people that I just really enjoy or love.  Whether its awesome style, a product that I couldn't live without or a great gift, I want to feature it here.  I've decided to do a play off my blog name and call it Totally Neat (yes on Tuesday because I like alliterations). 

This Christmas when I was looking around at gifts for Sam, I came across Portland General Store.  Portland General Store is an etsy shop that creates eco friendly personal care products for men in unique scents like Moss, Tabac, Whiskey, and Wood just to name a few.  I got Sam a sampler pack of cologne so that he could wear a few and figure out which ones he liked best.  Sam never wore cologne before, and to be honest the scents from Portland General store aren't that strong.  But what I love is when I get the chance to smell his neck and it smells like Tabac, it makes me happy.  I like that he smells like a man and not froo froo. 


The packaging is unique and rugged.  I think that is why I like it so much.  They also have a women's line of personal care products that I have not tried it but want to order some stuff from this shop as well.  Portland General Store products are available on etsy or in a few shops around the country. 

I will have outfit posts back up tomorrow.  Today I actually had the chance to get up and get dressed and get out of the house!  First day back at work from being sick!  Wish me luck!

  2. Glad you are feeling better and getting back to work. Also Glad that you and the "Girl from the North County" (comment above mine) have found each other. You are both so great. This line of products seems interesting. My husband actually LOVES products (even more than me) so its always nice to hear about good gift ideas. And thank you for taking the time to read me blog today. I am nosey too. and all those other things you said. I like to get to the bottom of things sometimes, but sometimes the truth about why we do things can sound a bit pathetic when we say it out loud. "just tell me I am still Cool please!!" I too was very invisible and un cool in high school. It is like I have to prove to myself that that uncoolness doesn't leave a mark forever. But again, why must I quantify that? Ya, you get it. Thanks again!
