Cool products for your car

You don’t have to be driving around in the newest model of a sports car to feel amazing in your ride. There are easy (and relatively cheap) upgrades that you can invest in to make any car instantly cooler.

It’s important that any modifications or add-ons you choose for your vehicle are legal and don’t cause a distraction, which could lead to a car accident. It’s much more important to be safe than to look good; however, if you ever are involved in a collision, speak to a Greenville car accident lawyer.

A license plate bottle opener
Obviously, this bottle opener that fits perfectly on your license plate shouldn’t be used for any alcohol for the driver, but it will certainly make you popular at any parking lot parties, and even allow you to open an ice-cold glass bottle of Coke on a hot day – perfection.

Car headrest pillow
If you’re someone who drives a lot, you might find that your car seat can get pretty uncomfortable. Invest in these comfortable headrest pillows for a little more support during those long road trips.

Solar-powered coaster lights
Put these handy lights into your cup holders, and when it gets dark, they’ll light up in neon color and look amazing. They’re not too bright to cause an issue, but look great when you put a bottle on top, and the light shines through.

Car mats
As standard, the mats you tend to get with a car are just standard-issue black mats that seem to show up all of the dirt, dust, and debris. There are so many other options available to buy to make your car seem a little bit fancier and show off your own personal style.

A mini air diffuser
The only thing better than a car that looks good is one that smells good too! Most car air diffusers plug into your cigarette lighter and take up about the same space as a travel mug. Choose a scent that makes you happy, and switch it up seasonally, but stay away from lavender as that will make you sleepy!

A cigarette lighter multi USB plug
Being able to charge your phone while you drive is a huge benefit, especially if you are using it for music or directions. Invest in a multiplug with several USB slots, to allow your friends to all charge their phones too.

Colorful car seat covers
Not only do the car seat covers help protect your seats from crumbs and stains, but they can also really brighten up your interiors and have your car looking brand new, even if the seats underneath are a little worn out.

An air freshener
The original car accessory – you can get air fresheners in many different scents and with designs on from your favorite sports team to TV themed ones.

So whether you’ve got a brand new ride, or you’re still driving your first beat-up truck, these accessories can really make your car cool.

Whether a mask is lined, filtered, has a wire nose bridge, just as important are the energy factors that play into the creation of our lives. Use thegems to accessorize your mask, lift your mood and assist in your manifestations.

Color, for instance: “Blue is communication, Self Expression, Safety… The darker the blue the more authoritative it and the more sterile it becomes. The lighter the blue, the warmer and more tranquil it becomes. There’s also green in the hue: a heart chakra color; compassion, gravity toward positivity while negativity is dissolved. The image of regal stature of royal blue is real. The stone Turquoise takes on these color qualities but also enhances the journey to self-realization, inner wisdom, exercising will-power and speaking one’s truth with grace and ease!”

Step 3. Blend this adaptogen-fortified delicious cream on high till smooth.

Step 4. Drizzle in 1 bar of melted Addictive Wellness Beauty Chocolate.

Pine Pollen & Mango Popsicles

It is not exactly a confession since who doesn’t love those sweet treats on a hot, steamy day? But I only love popsicles that are not hiding a chemical sh*t-storm. Let’s see what go into this delicious experiment.
• 3 ripe, perfect mangos
• 2 teaspoon of raw local unfiltered wildflower honey

Blended it all up, poured the smooth puree into a popsicle maker and let your freezer do the rest of the work! The decorative dips are shredded coconut, plus white and black sesame seeds.

Time To Plan For A Healthy Holiday Season

Holiday season is full of happiness, love and laugh. But at the same time, it is also fully packed with tons of snacks and foods! Snacking for a happy reason is not in the guilty field, especially if you snack on healthy foods. Now it’s the time to shop for a healthy holiday season. Let me introduce Paleonola to you and your family.

Founded upon the belief that choosing the right foods could have a major impact on your health and well-being, Paleonola was born out of the need for change in our lives. They pride themselves on being as real as the food they make. This prompted the burning desire for transparency in all of the ingredients they use. Everything they make is listed on the label and there’s no mystery ingredients or natural flavors to hide. Paleonola uses the best of what Mother Nature has to offer. Paleonola’s belief in real food has allowed them to develop some of the best tasting granola available today.

Pick a bag of Paleonola and put into Santa’s stockings, they are the perfect size as stocking stuffers and of course, they are so healthy and yummy to make your family happy. You can check out Paleonola’s website to see a lot of recipes that you can make this snack to holiday desserts.

What? You want something smaller as stocking stuffers? No worries, Paleonola’s snack bars will totally fit into a smaller stocking, and they are awesome to snack on when you and your family are opening the Christmas presents or watching a holiday movie. Let’s see what we have here.

Dark Chocolate Sea Salt Bar

It’s like a brownie collided with the perfect amount of sea salt. This Dark Chocolate Sea Salt protein bar packs 9 grams of protein into every bar and has a rich, dark chocolate taste. Perfect notes of sea salt hit the buds at just the right time. Not overpowering just plain delicious. Made with cage-free egg whites and real food ingredients, Paleonola pushed the limits of what was possible when it comes to what a protein bar should taste like.

Chocolate Chip Bar

There’s something so special about the way a cookie melts in your mouth during that first bite and before you know it, it’s all gone. Paleonola’s Chocolate Chip protein bar comes with all the flavor and none of the guilt. Made from real food ingredients like almonds and unsweetened chocolate it will be there when you need it most to curb that cookie craving and with 9 grams of protein in every bar you can spend less time thinking about what’s inside the bar and more time focusing on the things you love.
Almond Butter & Jelly Bar
Paleonola admits, this one took the team FOR-EV-ER to get just right, but it was well worth the wait. Our childhood addiction wouldn’t let give up and led the Paleonola team to create a bar that was both convenient and delicious. Since it’s kind of difficult to stick a sandwich in your pocket we thought it might be a good idea to take the creamy taste of almond butter and mix it with REAL raspberries. Not too sweet, it satisfies that tart craving while providing a nice crunch too. With 9 grams of protein it’s more than just a sweet treat it’s a balanced powerhouse.
If you want to wrap them all as a gift, here is something you can find at Paleonola’s website – A Bar Sampler Pack!

Almond Butter and Jelly: a take on a childhood favorite. Creamy almond butter matched with raspberry sweetness and a gentle hint of tart, make this a surefire sandwich swap.

Chocolate Chip: old faithful. Cookies beware it’s coming for your title as “the classic favorite.” Clean chocolate chips tossed with crunchy nibs and smooth almond butter make us the top-shelf winner.

Dark Chocolate Sea Salt: a little bit of this and a little bit of that. It can be hard to choose and sometimes you just want someone to do it for you. So here ya go. This salty and sweet combo hits all the right taste buds. Melts in your mouth, not in your pocket.

Sample pack Contains 2 of each bar.


Digital Overuse Could Be Culprit of Headaches and Eye Strain from Virtual Learning

From e-learning to remote working throughout the pandemic and now with virtual back-to-school, screen time is once again skyrocketing. Digital screens emit high-energy blue light which can negatively impact long-term eye health. Constant near focus on digital screens causes the eyes to become overworked leading to headaches, blurred vision, dry eyes, eye strain, and eye fatigue.

According to The Washington Post, “Headaches, anxiety and exhaustion caused by never-ending video meetings are no longer exclusively for adults trying to work from home during the pandemic. Some schools have started the fall semester with remote-learning setups that mimic what a full day of school was like before the coronavirus crisis.”

Viteyes®, a leading global eye health company, offers Viteyes Blue Light Defender Supplements which are formulated with Lutein & Zeaxanthin, the only natural defenses our eyes have against harmful blue light. In addition, Viteyes® Blue Light Defender Plus contains Astareal® Astaxanthin to help relieve overworked tired and strained eyes. These formulas can be taken from ages 12 through adults and are available as capsules and delicious blueberry gummies.


Viteyes® Blue Light Defender™ Gummies and Viteyes® Blue Light Defender™ + (capsules) contain 20 mg of Lutein and 4 mg of Zeaxanthin, the key eye nutrients that help absorb blue light before it reaches the macula. Viteyes® Blue Light Defender™ + also contains Astareal® Astaxanthin, Bilberry, and Vitamin C and is free from common allergens. Viteyes® Blue Light Defender™ Gummies also contain Bilberry, are free from common allergens, Kosher-certified, pectin-based, and vegan.

Dr. Karen Hecht explains why blue light is so harmful to the eyes:
