Beat May Showers with These Sustainable Rain Boots

Who doesn’t love looking fashionable in the rain and giving back at the same time? It is kind of difficult to have a happy mood and dress up in raining days, but with the right fashion items, you can look nice and feel very comfortable.

After nine years in business, ROMA Boots’ mission to merge fashion with philanthropy has totaled $2,953,186 worth of boots donated to children across the globe. For every pair of boots sold, a new pair is donated to a child in need. ROMA Boots even launched a new line of Men’s Rain Boots this January, so now the entire family can wear a pair of rain boots in contribution to a great cause.

With passion at the core, founder and CEO Samuel Bistrian has come full circle in his mission of being an entrepreneur and successful business owner. Through mistakes, loss, and setbacks, Bistrian reveals the not so glamorous truth to how he put love back into ROMA.

On April 3, 2010, despite being in the middle of an economic recession, Samuel Bistrian started ROMA Boots, the company that merges fashion with philanthropy to ‘Give Poverty the Boot.’ After spending years working at Neiman Marcus, Bistrian developed a passion for quality and customer service and wanted to take that a step further by giving back to people in need. Growing up extremely poor, he realized how big the impact of rain boots are in a child’s life in poverty-stricken countries and from that, his business model was created.

“I never considered myself a businessman or even an entrepreneur. Even when I wanted to leave Neiman Marcus to start ROMA, some of my superiors told me that it was a poor decision, and to some degree they were right. I did not have much of a plan as the country was in a recession. I had $5,000 in my bank account, significant credit card debt and student loans, but over all of that, I had passion,” explained Samuel Bistrian, Founder and CEO of ROMA Boots.

With the mission of bringing impoverished children throughout the world hope, love, and lasting change through aid and education, for every pair of boots sold, a new pair is donated to a child in need. ROMA’s ultimate goal is not only to provide aid but to educate. By doing so ROMA is empowering impoverished children around the world to break out of the cycle of poverty and contribute their gifts and talents to society.

“Having grown up so poor, ‘Giving poverty the boot’ was everything I always wanted to do, to help those less fortunate just like someone once helped me. But I knew from the start that without love as the foundation, all of my good intentions will result in disappointment,” told Bistrian.

After the first few years of launching, ROMA was a success but he wanted to expand. Finding the solution that any logical businessman would, he borrowed money and took on investors. While things seemed to be off without a hitch, there were downsides that came from this.

“All the pressures of growing a business can cause one to lose their purpose and you no longer have that same passion to help those in poverty when you can’t pay your own bills and you have partners putting enormous pressure on you,” Bistrian expressed.

It took a family crisis to put things back in perspective to help him rediscover his purpose; helping those who can’t help themselves. Hitting rock bottom was the motivator for Bistrian to take back the company that was once all his. Over the course of 9 months, he was able to buy out his investors and today, Samuel Bistrian is returning to his roots as the sole owner of ROMA Boots, running a successful business, giving back and doing what he loves.

After nine years, ROMA is ‘America’s Favorite Rain Boot’ and doing better than ever by giving poverty the boot with joy and love. ROMA Boots is easily on its way to becoming ‘World’s Favorite Rain Boot’ with countless practical, yet fashionable rain boots for women and kids.

For the first time ever, ROMA now offers a new, men rain boot line, which just launched January 2019, creating rain boot options for the whole family.

ROMA Boots can be a great gift for Mother’s Day or Father’s Day, even for birthdays. They come with very nice package with a love to the world and kindness.

ROMA Boots can be found at boutiques across the U.S., Canada, and Australia. They are also available online at romaboots.com and Amazon. To learn more about ROMA Boots and how you can make a difference in a child’s life, visit romaboots.com or romafoundation.com. Find them at boutiques across the U.S., Canada, and Australia. They are also available online at romaboots.com or Amazon. You can enjoy shopping at ROMA with the promo code ROMA25 for 25% of anything at romaboots.com.

5 Seed Butter – Award Winning Seed Butter

I believe almost all the people love the taste of peanut butter. But a lot of people can’t have it because of the peanut allergy. That sounds sad for a lovely breakfast when the other people enjoy their peanut butter spread.

Don’t worry any more, you have 5 Seed Butter now – a high nutritious good replacement!

5 Seed Butter is an allergy friendly peanut butter alternative made from chia, flax, pumpkin, hemp, and sunflower seeds. The butters are free from the top allergens including peanuts, tree nuts, soy, and sesame. 5 Seed Butter won the sofi Award for Best New Product in the Nut Butter and Seed Butter Category at the 2018 Fancy Food Show. 5 Seed Butter also boasts 8g of protein and only 5g of carbs.

  • GREAT FLAVOR AND SUPERIOR NUTRITION: 5 Seed Butter is delicious— it never sacrifices on taste. It is packed with 8 g of protein and contains only 5 carbs.

Father’s Day Gifts for All of The DILFs Out There!

It is always a good idea to prepare the gifts earlier than last minute, especially for Father’s Day. You know what I mean – it is so difficult to hunt nice gifts for guys, no matter for boyfriend, husband or dad. Father’s Day is coming, not very soon, but trust me, now is the perfect timing to prepare the gift in advance. I’m looking to spice things up for the men this year and introduce you to sassy gift ideas for the Zaddy (and I do mean Zaddy) in their lives.

Tame the Beast is a revolutionary, arousing line of head to toe grooming products. With a focus on raw, energizing properties and all natural botanicals, Tame the Beast covers all the basics of manscaping. Shower, shave, style, beard, skin…they got it covered.

NEW Beast Blue Bar Soap ($15.00):

The bar is BACK! 100% natural bar soap with heightened levels of organic essential oils and crisp Beast Blue™ scent. Extra moisturizing for beasts of all kinds, including tender beasts with sensitive skin.

Invigorating at first sniff and smooth to the touch, this gentle hydrating soap features only plant-based ingredients like Organic Palm Oil (Rainforest Alliance Certified™), Coconut Oil, Olive Oil and Almond Oil. Beast Blue™ brings notes of Juniper, Citrus, Eucalyptus and a hint of Musk of the Beast. Perfectly complements Tame the Beast® Sandpaper Scrub Bar Soap, which adds a heightened level of exfoliation from lava rock.

100% vegan, cruelty free and produced in the U.S.A.

DIRECTIONS: When not using, keep soap as dry as possible. Pro tip: cut your natural soap bar (especially the brick) in half and alternate use of each half (this gives your soap more time to dry).

Nutt Butter ($19.00)The first ever multipurpose lotion for the boys – with an exhilarating eucalyptus tingle! It’s a blend that checks all the boxes: Anti-Aging, Anti-Shriveling, Anti-Chafing, Anti-Dryness, Anti-Sagging, yet botanically bountiful. Don’t be shy, check out Nutt Butter Edibles.

The ‘other’ down-there products (powders, creams, wipes) for men are all about anti-wetness and anti-odor, leaving a strong, distinctive scent of artificial chemicals. TAME the BEAST® Multipurpose Nutt Butter is a creamy anti-chafe skin and body experience derived from ingredients such as Jojoba, Aloe, Comfrey Root, Calendula, Chamomile, Shea, Cocoa, Mango, Rosemary, Eucalyptus, Lavender, and Vitamin E, giving your skin and body a more natural and welcoming scent.
