Give Your Valentine The Gift Of Jewelry AND Safety In One With Invisawear

I work in a hospital in small city. It’s not a particularly dangerous city. But areas very near to wear employees have to park are known to have their share of problems. I was driving to work one day and saw a SWAT team outside of a run down apartment building. That was about half a mile from where I park.

The hospital provides shuttle service from the parking lots during the day because parking is anywhere from 1 -3 blocks away depending on which lot you park in. Obviously the closer ones fill up first. But shuttle service is not available after 6 pm. And let’s face it, hospitals don’t close at 6 pm and there’s staff coming in at all hours.

I often choose to walk up to work to help get my steps in. Plus I tend to walk faster than the shuttle can get me there because of the stops and route it has to take. One day though, I was walking under the railroad trestle and a man jumped down from the trestle right in front of me. I’m not even afraid to admit that he scared the daylights out of me. He started laughing and rather mockingly said “Did I scare you?” and walked away laughing. Not long after I found out that that railroad trestle is a popular place for the homeless population to travel and hang out.

I had my phone in my purse. I have a tendency to put my hand to my heart when startled. I realize had he not just walked away and would have tried to take my purse or worse that I would not have had access to my phone. That’s where Invisawear comes into play.

Shop invisaWear - Safety Devices Disguised as Everyday Accessories

Invisawear is a discreet safety device disguised as jewelry. With options that include: necklaces, bracelets, key chains, and scrunchies. I think the scrunchy idea is great for everyday wear, outdoor running, walking, biking, or going to the gym. I personally love the necklaces because I feel like my reflex reaction to cover my heart would be easy and unassuming access to my necklace if I was in trouble.

You device/jewelry is able to notify pre-selected people of your choice of your location even if you’re not sure where you are. It also has the optional feature to contact 911. You can also choose to have it share personal information for 911 dispatchers so they can better help you.

Right now Invisawear is having a Valentine Sale:

Get 20% off plus 2 Day Free Shipping I’m excited to have the chance to review a piece of Invisawear jewelry. I’m choosing the necklace. I’m planning on doing an unboxing and review post so watch for that on my social media channels. I can think of so many occasions it would be a blessing to have piece of mind like this. Girls nights, 2nd and 3rd shift workers, travel (especially alone), home health workers, subway travel, runners and joggers, any place you’re not familiar with or has a less-than-positive reputation, etc. This would make an amazing gift that definitely shows you care.

I’m Trying The Silk’n Infinity Hair Removal Device

Let me first give a shout out to Tryazon and Silk’n for choosing me to try the Silk’n Infinity Hair Removal Device and allowing me to host a party. I’m so excited to get the device for free. I can’t wait to see my results.

So what made me apply to host a Silk’n Infinity party through Tryazon? Well, I’ve been thinking about doing laser hair removal for at least a year, maybe longer. I’m 41 years old. I’m just tired of shaving for temporary results, ending up with razor bumps and occasional nicks. Plus, the more I learned about it the more I realized that gray or light colored hair couldn’t be treated so I figured I was on a time table.

I actually took the step to email a local medical salon. I had multiple areas I wanted treated but I figured I’d start with a smaller area first and see how it goes. That was, until I heard the price and time requirements. $250 for the first session and consult. Then 4-6 more treatments after that with the possibility of more depending on how my body was responding. Initial consult session being about an hour to an hour and a half. With each session being an additional $200. In other words, I was easily looking at a minimum of $1000 just for one small area. Larger areas cost more. Well I just couldn’t afford that. I also didn’t want to have to worry about what to do with my youngest kids if they’d be virtual learning. So I temporarily gave up the idea.

Then I learned that there are at home pulsed light devices. There are many brands and types out there but the Silk’n Infinity hair removal device really stood out. The device cost less than just two treatment session at a professional salon but has enough pulses to remove hair everywhere I wanted to. It is one of the few devices that are FDA certified. It has a lot of safety features in place.

I did an unboxing video on facebook live if you’d like to check it out:

The Silk’n Infinity is approved for hair removal from the cheekbones down so you can remove hair from:

  • upper lip
  • jaw/face
  • underarms
  • chest
  • stomach
  • bikini line
  • arms
  • legs
  • feet
  • anywhere else you might want to remove hair below the cheekbones

On exception would be no Brazilian style hair removal. They do not recommend using it on sensitive areas like genitals and nipples.

There are a list of “do not use” reasons for the device and what types of hair it will work for. I strongly suggest you check out the website for who can use the device and safety precautions. Check out the Q&A and FAQs section to help answer your questions before buying.

I will also be hosting a zoom party in March around March 13. So if you’d like an invite to the zoom party to ask questions and learn about the device just leave a comment and let me know. OR direct message me on one of my social media channels if you want to be be more discreet about it.

I’ve already done two treatment sessions. It’s super easy to use, it does not hurt at all. The safety features in place really make it easy to ensure you’re doing things right. I plan on doing an update post around the time of my zoom party. I also want to do another post in about 12 weeks as that is the average range for noticable permanent hair removal when sticking with the regimen. My first session took a little longer than the 2nd as I was just learning the device. All in all it only took me about 40 minutes to do ALL the areas I wanted treated.

That being said, I’ll give even more info on my next update and at my zoom party. If you have any questions now, just leave them in the comments and I’ll answer the ones I can.

Get Ready For Valentine’s Day With Oriental Trading

My 7 yr old son  needed Valentines to send in for school.  My 3 yr old wanted Valentine’s because her brother was getting Valentines. I realized I had a serious lack of Valentine decorations. I also realized I was going to be inviting my nieces up to play with my two youngest kids and they love creating stuff. So I went to Oriental Trading and took care of everything.

Oriental Trading has prices that won’t break the piggy bank.  They also have lots of choices for just about any theme or holiday.  I love their craft kits because most of them come with everything you need.

My 7 yr old son picked out these super cute ninja Valentines that came with matching ninja lollipops. While browsing all their Valentine stuff I also found matching bendy ninjas that matched the Valentine cards perfectly. I just had to get them.  We put his Valentines together and they turned out so cute.

Then I found a cute craft kit to make Valentine cookie magnets.  The kit had enough to make a dozen magnets. Plenty for my little ones and my nieces to each make two if they like. The kit came with individually packaged packets that had the base,  foam stickers to decorate the magnet, and individual packs of glitter. It also came with the sticky back magnets to finish the project. The project was easy enough that even the littlest ones could do it but came with enough items that it let the older kids express their creativity.

Also while skimming through the Valentine stuff, I was trying to find a decoration or two for Valentine’s day . That’s when I came across the cutest sign.  I’ve not seen anything like it before. I thought it was funny.  When I opened the box I couldn’t help but giggle. I didn’t know what my hubby would think about it.  I figured it would be a decoration for our bedroom.  He laughed when he saw it. When I told him I wanted to put it in the bedroom he said “no you gotta put it where people are going to see it more often, that’s funny”  So we decided we’re going to put it in our family room.

I always put little things together to give all the kids for Valentine’s Day. Just something small.  I found these cute Peanuts canvas bags that are perfect to fill with treats or whatever you want.  I was thinking of making some candy or caramel apples with heart sprinkles on them, packaging them in cellophane and putting them in these bags to give the kids.

Last but not least, my daughter’s Valentines she picked out.  She wanted these ones because they came with glow-in-the-dark bracelets.  I thought the star theme was cute.  I made the mistake of leaving some of the stuff in the box until we were ready for it. I went to work and my daughter was home with the hubby in the  morning.  When I came home I saw a long glowing line on the floor. My daughter got into a pack of the glow bracelets broke them all to light them and connected them all together. Thankfully she didn’t “need” them for school she just wanted to give some to her brothers and her cousins. There was still one pack left. As I was trying to put one together for the picture the stick got caught on the slit and popped so it started glowing. I realized…wow had she needed these for school they would never make it. If they had to be put together and put in a backpack they’d all be busted and glowing before they even got to school.  These would be better served as a party favor for a birthday party (think magic wand) OR keep the bracelets in the box and let the child pass out the bracelets as they hand out out the paper valentine part.
