Feel Safer At Home and Away #Giveaway #security #safetytips #doorjammer #winit

As we continue to build our new home, security has been on my mind a lot. We've been researching the best type of doors, windows, locks--you name it--to create a home that feels safe. During my search, I came across a product called DoorJammer. It's essentially a portable door security device that you can use in your home as well as on the road. I hadn't even thought about security measures while traveling, but this is genius! I don't really feel safe in hotels even with the swing bar lock, making it hard to get a good night's rest. The DoorJammer gives that extra piece of mind that we're looking for in a super affordable, portable, user-friendly way. (It's about the size of the iPhone 6.) Because of it's design, it makes your door virtually unmovable by converting the horizontal force exerted on the door from the outside into vertical force to anchor the DoorJammer firmly onto the ground. It's also easy to remove in an emergency, so that you can exit your room quickly, if necessary.

Promote Healing and Relaxation with Body Pillow Therapy #backpain #pregnancypillow #circulation #sleepbetter

I've been a long time user of body pillows to help me sleep and relieve back pain. I had no idea that an entire therapy had been developed around them, but it makes perfect sense to me. I've tried Body Pillow Therapy for the past week and have to say, it's been wonderful for my muscles, my sleep and my posture. Working long hours in front of the computer kills my lower back. This pillow has given me so much comfort that I wanted to share my experience, in case it helps others.

4 Products for a Healthier You #DrBronners #Organic #FairTrade #Vegan

A healthier lifestyle begins with healthier choices. This may sound easier said than done. In our house, we've been making healthy changesslowly but surelyby replacing our processed food with fresher, more natural, low calorie products and switching from harsh chemical cleaners to cleaners we feel comfortable using around kids and pets. 

We are far from experts, but we find it's easiest to focus on researching and replacing just a few products a month. It has been a more manageable process for us this way and we notice that over time we've come to incorporate many healthy decisions into our lives with ease. It's a great feeling.

Dining Out: Brio Tuscan Grille's Flavorful Features Menu #limitedtime #Brio #wine&dine #seasonal

I can't think of a better way to begin the New Year than with Brio Tuscan Grille's new Flavorful Features seasonal menu. This three course journey begins with unique, hearty dishes and finishes with absolutely decadent desserts that were impossible for us to resist. Available now through February 28th, you're definitely going to want to experience this limited time menu for yourselves. In fact, I've already dropped a not-so-subtle hint that I'd be over the moon about a romantic Valentine's Day dinner at Brio, to give the rest of the dishes a sample, too!

New Year's Resolution: Health and Beauty #damagedhair #Biolage #ParabenFree #SayGoodbyetoDry

If you've decided to ring in 2017 with health and beauty resolutions, you're in good company. In fact, it's one of the most popular resolutions made each year! One easy way to stick with your goal is to invest in quality hair products. Personally, Biolage is at the top of my list.

About two months ago my stylist recommended Biolage to improve the strength of my hair. I ended up sticking to the regimen below and am really happy with how much healthier my hair is now.You wouldn't know how dry it is naturally because Biolage KeratinDose moisturizes and smooths so well. It's also helps with my over-processed highlights, which are pretty fragile otherwise. Within about a month, I noticed a substantial difference.
