The GearPower12k made my press trip that much easier!!

*I received the GearPower12K for review. All my opinions are my own and not swayed by outside sources.*

When I was in LA last week, I knew I needed my phone to always be working. I use my phone for work, pictures, and also to communicate with my kids. If my phone goes dead, I am in big trouble. It is also not advantageous to always have a plug with me at all times. Thankfully, GearPower sent me a great power charger that got me through the last few days, never needing to plug in my phone.

The GearPower12 is a great power charger that allows one to plug in their phone and tablet at the same time. I am able to simultaneously charge my phone and iPad without ever plugging my power cord into a wall. This portable battery charger allows you to charge your phone at any time of the day, even when you are on the beach, and need the battery for your return trip home!GMP12K MainC The GearPower12k made my press trip that much easier!!

What I love about this power charger is it has enough power to fully recharge devices such as the iPhone® 6 more than six times! Once I charged my GearPower, I was good for two whole days. That means my phone was able to be charged consecutively for the entire time I was in LA. That is a win-win if you ask me!GMP12K Main The GearPower12k made my press trip that much easier!!

To charge it, takes about 2 hours but once it is fully charged, you are set for days! I never had a problem running out of battery. I have had many power chargers but I truly think this is one of the best I have had to date.

Some of the technological devices that work with the GearPower12K include:

Apple iPhone 5: over 6 recharges
Apple iPhone 6: about 5.5 recharges
Apple iPhone 6 Plus: about 3 recharges
Samsung Galaxy S5: about 3.5 recharges
Samsung Galaxy Note 4: about 3 recharges

 

If you are looking for a great power charger, give the GearPower12K a try today! You won’t be sorry you did!

I absolutely LOVE Kohl’s and what they have to offer. This weekend I was on a press trip and my friends loved my outfits! One asked where I got them from and of course, my other friend says, “Kohl’s obviously… We are talking about Melissa”! Kohl’s has the best outfits, accessories, and kitchen items for our family at affordable prices!  Best of all, they have the Kohl’s cash program where you can receive money to spend at Kohl’s each time you shop.  Also, they have the Yes2You Rewards that give you money to spend each time you shop at Kohl’s.

Just take a look:unnamed 16 Kohls for all your 4th of July needs!

June is Scleroderma Awareness! Won’t you Pledge to help out?! #HardWord #Scleroderma

*“I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Scleroderma Awareness. I received a promotional item to thank me for my participation.”Screen Shot 2015 06 28 at 8.29.39 AM  June is Scleroderma Awareness! Wont you Pledge to help out?! #HardWord #Scleroderma

I find that one of the toughest things about being a working mom is not just staying on top of my crazy schedule and tending to the kids needs. It is doing all of that, and then remembering to take the time to take care of myself as well. The bottom line is that if I am not healthy, then I can’t take care of everybody else very well either. As women it is important to stay on top of health concerns, and the month of June is Scleroderma Awareness month. I wanted to take this opportunity to help raise awareness on a problem that predominantly effects women, and is relatively unheard of. The only reason that I had ever heard of it is that a friend of mine suffers from this disease that according to the Scleroderma Aware website effects only 1 in every 906 people. Even though it effects thousands of people, not many know anything about it.Scleroderma Aware Infographic 1 473x1024  June is Scleroderma Awareness! Wont you Pledge to help out?! #HardWord #Scleroderma

When my friend told me about it I remember saying “Sclero what?!”  I could not even pronounce the word. Forget even knowing what it meant! She explained to me that it is an autoimmune disease that unfortunately they still don’t know the cause of, or cure for. That is why awareness is so important. Research is critical to gaining understanding and developing a cure. The name scleroderma comes from one of the symptoms, sclerosis is the Greek word for hard, and of course derma means skin. Other symptoms can include stiff joints, digestive problems, lung scarring and kidney failure. It can also be fatal. It is basically a progressive and chronic connective tissue disorder triggered by some unknown factor. The over-production of collagen is what causes the thickening, hardening, and scarring of the skin and in some cases internal organs. Collagen is supposed to keep the skin soft, but over production makes it thick and hard. This can then impact the amount of blood the small vessels can then carry to other parts of the body. Most people with Scleroderma also suffer from Reynaud’s where fingers and toes turn white and painful in cold temperatures.Screen Shot 2015 06 28 at 8.29.20 AM  June is Scleroderma Awareness! Wont you Pledge to help out?! #HardWord #Scleroderma

The advise for dealing with scleroderma really are many common sense things we should be doing to stay healthy to begin with, but as busy women and especially moms, we often do not take the time to do. Things like getting enough sleep, avoiding processed foods, moisturizing our skin, and exercise for good circulation, among others.

This June you can help to make a difference in someone else’s life when you pledge to spread awareness for Scleroderma, this rare, often unheard of, disease whose victims are 80% women. You may not be personally affected by it, or know any family or friends who are, but you can still help to spread awareness by taking the pledge to support Scleroderma Awareness Month, and to help find some answers for those who are. Let’s also take a pledge to take care of our health in general. Remember, you will do your best job of caring for others when you are at your best and have taken care of yourself first.
