If you played with gimp or spaghetti string when you were young, you know how fun it is to make your own bracelets! The Loom Boom is a colorful and awesome storage solution to all your LOOM bracelets you make! Loom bracelets are easy, fast and fun to make and you can make double the bracelets in half the time.
Like all loom-crazed households, rubber-band bracelets were taking over. As moms, Katy and Lauren (Co-Founders) loved the focus and creativity it provided for their kids. Every new stitch their children learned produced more patterns, more colors and more creations. However, these bracelets were winding up everywhere, from their couch cushions to their dog’s mouth. It was a problem that needed solving! They stumbled upon a solution when Katy’s five-year-old son, Jake, housed his ever-growing collection of bracelets on a paper towel roll! What began with a simple concept has now developed into a first-of-its kind product intended to organize, display, transport and share. Sometimes children see things so clearly, and they jumped on his simple yet genius idea.
The Loom Boom features bright-colored tubes that can hold up to 40 bracelets. The tube is detachable from the base so “loomers” can transport and share, as well as have easy access to bracelets at the bottom. The base also contains extra storage for loom bands, charms, clips, and other spare parts.

Last week, I attended a lovely lunch with my friends from Ford with a panel featuring moderator and E! News anchor Catt Sadler, Ford’s Amy Marentic, Flywheel co-founder Ruth Zukerman and NY Times bestselling author/Bad Boy Steve Santagati. The topic of the day was how to have a happy commute. Whether you drive, take public transit or bike, you can have a happy commute!
THE FINDING: Two-thirds of Americans spend at least 30 minutes commuting, which is more than they are exercising (57%). The majority of drivers say that their commute has little positive impact on maintaining a regular exercise routine or supporting overall health goals like eating well or maintaining a healthy weight.
THE FINDING: The majority of Americans feel that their commute has little impact on spending quality time with friends. In fact, 43% experience traffic during their commute and one in five describe it as “unpredictable” which can affect their relationships –for instance not making it to things on time or being overwhelmed when they finally get there.
THE FINDING: The majority of Americans say that their commute is typically not enjoyable – using words like stressful, frustrating and boring to describe their daily drives.
Commuting can be a tricky thing to navigate, but as you are focused on your spring cleaning and getting organized, we encourage you to pursue a happy commute with these helpful tips from Catt Sadler and Ford.

These buns are crisp on the outside and soft on the inside. Ready in just 8 mins in the oven and a really easy quick hot lunch.
These are revolutionary!! The Rudi’s Gluten Free Cherry Almond bars taste like… Cheesecake. OMG They are delicious and healthy and obviously got eaten up really really fast. These moist and chewy delights are baked up right, with real, whole ingredients, 3 grams of protein and 2 grams of filling fiber to keep you going strong all day long.
Rudi’s also has a range of sandwich breads that are gluten free! They come in cinnamon, multi grain and original. I love it toasted with butter or grilled as a panini. Rudi’s have worked with the bread to make it just like normal bread but better! Gluten-Free goodness that’s softer, fluffier, and yummier than ever. We’ve rethought, reworked, and remade all of our Gluten-Free Sandwich Breads because we believe taste is everything.
