Created by brothers and business partners, Jerad and Matt Poling, HONOUR’s “transformative ritual” is centered around the richly derived benefits of the coffee bean and maximized in two primary ways:  
    First, as a defining ingredient in a three-step skincare process—WAKE Exfoliating Rinse, PREP Shave Well Cream and TEND Revitalizing Moisturizer.
    Second, as deliciously roasted BREW coffee. Pure to form, all products are free of parabens, sulfates, and other harmful chemicals.  
Quality is at the heart of the product, with sustainability being a common theme throughout the entire brand.  
    The heirloom-quality Keep Good canister is comprised of eco-friendly materials like reclaimed aluminum and Refills consist of pressed sugar cane pulp, so one can live in the modern world without damaging the planet.
    The coffee beans utilized in all HONOUR products are grown, handpicked, and sorted on family-owned farmland rooted in the lush mountainous hills of Costa Rica.

Limpert Tech "SullyCast" on ALT 105.7 - Valentine's Day Tech

Valentines Day is less than a week away, but Rick and Sully will talk some tech and or gadgets perfect for Valentine's Day this year. Rick goes out of the box with some of these, but all cool and fun!

Have a listen!


1. Boredwalk T-Shirts
www.boredwalktshirts.com

How about a fun t-shirt for your significant other? Boredwalk is an artist owned and operated t-shirt company that offers a fun array of t-shirts for men, women, and children.
Everything is designed and printed in our LA studio with eco-friendly water-based inks. Boredwalk is ready with fun and quirky tees ranging in various colors and sporting fun sayings like “Feminism is my second favorite F-word” that are sure to complete any Galentine’s Day.

They are also donating a portion of our sales now through February 28th to She Should Run, an organization that helps women run for public office. $1 from every sale of our feminist/political shirts from 2/1 through 2/28 will be donated to She Should Run. Being a progressive woman-owned business, we have chosen to make She Should Run our Valentine this year, as a way to support other women in leadership.



2. A Day at TopGolf
www.topgolf.com

TopGolf is and has been fun, but new technology makes it even more entertaining.

TopGolf offers low-pressure date activities that you could enjoy on Valentine’s Day OR Galentine’s Day this year.

With a great selection of sharable bites, refreshing drinks, online reservations and a little friendly competition in a cozy atmosphere, Topgolf is the perfect Valentine’s Day destination for couples of all ages and relationship stages.

TopGolf is also introducting Toptracer technology.

The Toptracer that customers will see at Topgolf Orlando, the company’s 36th location, is similar to what viewers see when watching tournament coverage on NBC and Golf Channel. In addition to the iconic line that tracks ball flight, customers will see carry distance, ball speed, height, hang time and the curve of the shot. Justin Norvell, Topgolf Orlando’s director of operations, views it as just one more way for the company to “increase engagement” with its guests.

In Georgia, there is a TopgGolf location in Atlanta and Alpharetta.


 

3. Farmgirl Flowers
www.farmgirlflowers.com

While there is nothing really techy about sending or giving flowers for Valentine's Day... one company that has grown in less than 7 years, starting out in a kitchen and now shipping nationwide uses tech to scale it's business and bring fresh flowers and other gifts to customers all over the country.

Farmgirl Flowers is now a $14.5 million business. Their biggest unexpected challenge has been needing to shift supply chain drastically. Earlier this year we had to pivot from using all US grown flowers to include some imported product. This wasn’t a move we initially wanted to make but was one we needed to make in order to continue to scale with the limited quantities available to us domestically."




4. Man Crates
www.mancrates.com

Personalized crate of goodies for the man in your life.
There are NFL, NHL, college sports, NASCAR themed crates and more...
 

5. Lovepop 3-D Valentine's Cards
www.lovepopcards.com

Lovepop is the perfect fit for any V-day celebration because there are so many varieties to choose from!
Whether you’re looking to send a valentine to a friend, family or your lover, these 3-D cards have got you covered.

 

6.  The Lovebox
https://www.uncommongoods.com/product/lovebox-spinning-heart-messenger

Lovebox really is a box that looks like your ordinary, adorable piece of home decor. However, it's equipped with a mirrored screen on the inside, which is where the magic takes place.
A box where someone can send a message to you through an app and it appears in the box.

The heart on the outside of the box spins, letting the receiver know that they've got mail. (The heart keeps spinning until the lid is opened, so leaving messages for people to come home to is definitely a sweet idea.)
Final step: The apple of your eye sees the heart spinning, opens the lid to view their message, and is showered in hearts plus the text message.
