Nomad Cell Phone Accessories for Father's Day

Dad’s are always at the back burner it seems. They are no less important than Mom, but tell that to a young child! I have had a lot of gifts float through here and none have hardly turned my husband’s head like the Nomad products that arrived.

My husband loves quality and never settles for less than what has the best reviews or what will be the most durable when it comes to anything he buys from tools, accessories and even cars. That’s why Nomad is one I am excited to share in my Father’s Day Gift Guide.

Right away you feel the quality! Not just in the packaging but the leather in the cases and even the wireless charger stand is wrapped in premium leather! Below is the inside of the phone cases..a note that says the leather is genuine. The outer color was slightly darker than the image on the box and it will age but I love the color once I opened it up.

I really thought my husband would not care much for the Leather Folio but once he felt it, he immediately put his phone in and added some of his most used cards and even can put cash in a slit and he has been using it everyday since! He loves how it feels and also that he doesn’t need to carry his bulky wallet everywhere. It is minimally treated, vegetable-tanned leather from one of America’s oldest tanneries.

Nomad’s new Wireless Travel Stand works fantastic! We have gone through several stands that just don’t charge fast or even fully. This one charges fast! I’d love to show you an original photo, but I went to grab it and my husband told me he had to take it to Alaska with him for the week for work. He was eager to take this with him and use in his hotel for the week with his iPhone 8. It is a classy-looking stand just like the cases!

I can’t recommend Nomad enough for a genuine, classy and quality accessories for Dad’s cell phone! You (and he) will not be disappointed! Visit HelloNomad.com to see all of the available products.

A copy of the book was sent for feature

The Magical Mindful Day - Children's Book Review

The Magical Mindful Day 

by: Deborah Slazar Shapiro

It is a story about hope for the future on this Earth that you and your child will enjoy together. In the book, The Magical Mindful Day, brings awareness to the world around us. As the subtitle states, it is a story about Mindfulness, Connection, and Caring for the Earth. My son and I read this together and it is so engaging especially with the illustrations on each page.

To be mindful you have to first understand what it means to be mindful and paying attention to what is going on around us. The book talks about recycling, choosing outdoor play over electronics, the element of breathing and taking in Oxygen and so much more that connects us to all living things.

You can visit their website to hear a relative song and more about the book and Author.

ZeroWater’s 7 Cup Water Filtration Pitcher with Ready-Pour Review

I have partnered with ZeroWater and sample was sent for feature

Do you have your list? That master ‘New College Student Dorm’ list? Perhaps you are sending back a Sophomore or Junior so you’ve been at a summer-before-start before. You will never use the word ‘compact’ or ‘dorm size’ as much in your lifetime as you will in the next few years. You have to think about space saving as you think about sending them off healthy and with the best of what you can leave with them. The ZeroWater‘s® 7 Cup Water Filtration Pitcher with Ready-Pour™ is a must-have and I will tell you why!

First of all it is compact. At 7 cups a pitcher it is shaped to slide into those small fridges. It saves time as a water pitcher because the design allows you to pour even as it finishes filling through the filter. Know what’s in the dorm building water? Do you really want to know?!! ZeroWater will leave you piece of mind that they are getting nothing but pure, filtered water. I put it to the test…..

I used 3 separate glasses so no residue from each testing water was mixed. I started with my city tap water and although when I look up my area it says our TDS levels are about 59, you can see they clearly are not! I have 126 out of my tap. I am still at the standard but obviously contains some contaminants. Then I tried a standard store bought water bottle and got 16…better! Of course my ZeroWater from the pitcher was zero. Now that sounds like a dorm must-have to me as a Mom!

Understanding the ZeroWater filter system and TDS

5-Stage Filtration:

Stage 1 – Removes suspended solids such as dust and rust that make your water appear cloudy 

Stage 2 – Removes additional suspended solids 

Stage 3 – Removes organic contaminants; pesticides, herbicides, Mercury, Chlorine, Chloramine, and stops bacteria from growing 

Stage 4 – Removes inorganic compounds i.e. metals, nonmetals and radiological contaminants. 

Stage 5 – Removes remaining suspended solids, holds the resin in place 

Total Dissolved Solids (TDS) refer to minerals, salts, metals including lead, chemicals, fluoride and runoff polluting your drinking water.

Celebrating National Clean Up Your Room Day with Febreze Tower Air Purifier

I have partnered with Febreze for this feature

Celebrating National Clean Up Your Room Day with Febreze Tower Air Purifier

Did you know that May 10 is National Clean Your Room Day? Every Friday is my National Clean the House Day. I love to start the weekend dust free, floors all clean and the house in shape. Both my husband and I hate clutter so we we work together to maintain a house I can feel comfortable showing if anyone were to stop by any day of the week. I can mop, dust, sanitize and scrub but I cannot control the air and certain odors. For that I need a machine like the Febreze Tower Air Purifier.

The Febreze Tower Air Purifier does 3 things for your home (and health). First of all it has 3 cleaning levels to clean the air in the room. The HEPA-Type filter removes up to 99% of air pollutants & allergens such as dust, smoke, pollen and pet hair & dander that passes through the filter so you breathe fresher air. This tower is designed for large rooms and you can find a desktop and mini versions for smaller spaces.


Second, the Febreze Air Purifiers emits fresh air scents by simply inserting a Febreze cartridge (your first one is included). This is just a nice added bonus that not only does it clean the air but leaves a pleasant scent in the room.

The third feature of the Febreze Air Purifiers is that in the way the purifiers circulate & filter’s the room air up to 5 times an hour it literally eliminates odors. All controls from scent intensity to circulation levels are controlled at the top of the unit for easy access.

You can find Febreze Air Purifier units Nationwide in stores like Walmart and Best Buy.

Give Dad a Gift He Will Use with Lucky Tackle Boxes

I have partnered with Lucky Tackle Box for feature. Samples were sent. Opinions are my own.

It is warming up outside. For all the spring and summer junkies like me it is the best time to be outdoors camping, hiking, fishing. I live in the Pacific Northwest so I know many friends and family who fish and live to be outdoors. With Father’s Day coming Lucky Tackle Boxes has great gifts for Dad (or any Fisherman/woman in your life).

The Panfish Box is one of the boxes or subscription boxes you can choose to gift. With the bait and other items in this box you can fish for crappie, bluegill, perch and more! I got 6 items in my Panfish box and also some discount cards, etc.

The Multi-Species box is a lot of fun. It was packed with baits, soft baits, hooks and more. With the items in this box you can fish panfish, bass, trout, catfish and more. It’s a great box to choose if you are unsure what Dad is currently fishing for because chances are he can use all of these in his runs.

Head to Lucky Tackle Boxes Subscription Boxes and see if a gift that keeps giving for a few months is right for him. If a subscription isn’t the right gift, then you can buy just one or a few boxes and even shop bait and supplies.
