Getting warm and staying warm can be a struggle! Create the perfect temperature with CozyThrow💤

February 3, 2023

These new, patent-pending blankets are designed with comfort, warmth, ease, and flexibility.

PERFECTION for my kid who has a major Sensory Processing issue. She LOVES it.

Liz Holland, the CEO of Sensory Product Design, didn’t know she had Sensory Processing Disorder until her 50’s. Following her diagnosis in 2015, she realized her entire life had been spent making prototypes and devices to help others with SPD.

The daughter of an inventor who held more than 100 patents, Liz launched CozyThrow💤(pronounced “cozy throw-zees”) & CozyCo💤(pronounced “cozy co-zees”). Designed by someone with Sensory Processing Disorder, who’s range of comfort is very narrow, this blanket is the most versatile blanket you’ll ever own.

“I want to shine a light on SPD, Sensory Processing Disorder and help people start to understand this complex neurological disorder,” said Liz Holland, CEO of Sensory Product Design. “After I was diagnosed with SPD in my early 50’s, I began to put the pieces together and started my mission to help people find solutions. CozyThrow💤and CozyCo💤can fend off triggers before they happen, thanks to their plush, non-pilling quality fleece fabric and ability to regulate temperature, saving people time and energy.”

Beyond warmth, CozyThrow💤 and CozyCo💤promotes a sense of calm. It’s perfect for busy toddlers that have a hard time settling down. The CozyThrow💤offers adults the same sensation of settling the nervous system.

CozyThrow💤 and CozyCo💤 include a foot pocket that is double lined with polar fleece and flares around the ankles. The hand pockets have finger & thumb openings that offer total, unrestricted comfort and the ability to hold almost anything to ensure warmth and mobility.

The super-soft, plush, non-pilling quality fleece fabric reduces potential sensory triggers and is comfy for everyone. It also stands up well to continuous use. It’s made to blend seamlessly into the home and use as an everyday throw blanket.

These durable blankets are designed to last while relaxing or during play. They can also be tossed in the washing machine and used as an everyday throw blanket.

CozyThrow💤and CozyCo💤are available for pre-order at a discounted price of $39 and $49. To pre-order, click here.

Sweat And Surf Have Nothing On These Waterproof Bluetooth Headphones

October 11, 2022

The biggest issue I’ve had as a fitness trainer who teaches my signature class (The Work IN) via Zoom is this: Sweaty air pods falling out from sweat, getting clogged from sweat, and slipping out while I teach. I have tried several hacks – wearing a sweatband (looking like John McEnroe ) to keep them in, but even so, I still have the issue of them clogging and losing connection. I also take sweaty hikes, and once again, the clogging, slipping, the dreaded falling out into the dirt road, searching for the dirty pod, cleaning it, and reconnecting. A major pain.

Enter H2O Audio, with their new waterproof headphones, designed for multi-sport use. They are not only waterproof bone conduction headphones, but they go beyond the highest waterproof IPX8 rating by being submersible up to 12 feet of water for an unlimited amount of time.

The perfect gift this holiday season for the sport enthusiast in your life.

Music increases endurance significantly. Think: Listening to your favorite music while you work out, and running to your favorite jams with no issue of sweat or falling so you can run harder, bike longer and swim faster without fussing constantly.

 

The “TRI Multi-Sport Headphones with Bluetooth and MP3” have a built-in MP3 player and Bluetooth, hold 8 GB of memory, and offer 9 hours of battery life.  No wonder…H2O Audio is the world leader in waterproof headphones and accessories,

H2O Audio, the world leader in waterproof headphones and accessories, launched its H2O TRI – Triathlon Multi-Sport Headphones.

These headphones were designed for triathletes, but made for anyone who likes to listen to music while they swim, surf, run, bike, ski, snowboard or sweat.

“Combining our latest bone conduction speakers, Bluetooth, MP3 player and the stable fit of a behind-the-neck headphone, the H2O TRI headphones are designed take on any sport – in and out of water,” said Rauhala. “As a small but innovative brand, we are pleased to launch the H2O Triathlon Multi-Sport headphones and extend the use of our headphones from the swimming pool to the ocean, bike, mountain or trail.”

H2O TRI Headphones Specs and Features:

  • Multi-Sport Design: Designed for swimming, biking, running, paddling, surfing, skiing, snowboarding and any outdoor activity, the open ear bone conduction speakers provide great sound while maintaining surrounding awareness.
  • 100% Waterproof: H2O Audio waterproof technology allows submersion to 12 feet/3.6 meters underwater for an unlimited amount of time. The sound under water is truly an amazing experience. Waterproof Rating: IPX8.
  • MP3 Player: Built-in MP3 player with 8 GB of memory will hold several hundred songs and accepts most music formats.
  • Bluetooth: Connect your iPhone, Android or any music enabled smart watch – and enjoy running and biking with streaming music.
  • Battery Life: 9 Hours of play time should cover even the most grueling endurance events.
  • Secure Fit: The neck band provides a secure and comfortable fit while swimming, paddling, running, and working out.

But them here on Amazon!

About H2O Audio
H2O Audio was founded in 2003 in San Diego, California just as a new era of digital music and portable MP3 players began to give people outstanding audio quality on the move. As avid watersports lovers, we wanted to extend that use to the pool and ocean. Designed by athletes for athletes, we now lead the field in waterproof headphones, MP3 players and Apple accessories, creating products with superior underwater sound.

BACK TO SCHOOL WITH DOUGHNUT X FP MOVEMENT

August 23, 2022

This is my all-time fave time of year. Pumpkin everything is right around the corner, kids are heading back to school (HOORAY OMG) and all things fresh happen now.

The only bummer with school being so digitized is I no longer take them on those epic shops at Staples for pens and notebooks. I do, however, order new lunch boxes and backpacks!

With their load being a little lighter, this year I tried out a smaller sustainable Doughnut x FP Movement collab for my son going into 6th grade. And grabbed very cool, waterproof bag for my daughter’s cameras (she shoots all day long at school).

 

This collaboration products feature earth tones. For Free People promotes outdoor activities, and Doughnut promotes exploration of the world. We intended to show our shared values by engaging the earthly nature in this series.

In 2010, fresh out of university, two adventurous graduates, Rex and, Steven embarked on a mission to find the perfect backpack to accompany them on their upcoming travels abroad.

The bag they envisaged would be fun, functional, but most importantly, affordable. A bag that is capable of holding up against all the knocks and scrapes their expedition could throw their way.

Unfortunately for our two youngsters, they couldn’t find themselves the perfect backpacks, so it seemed the only option left was to design their own!

A decade later, what started as a small factory run of 100 backpacks has now turned into a globally recognized brand, available in 30 countries and counting. While the designs have evolved, the essence of the company remains the same; creating conscientiously crafted backpacks that embody the spirit of exploration while celebrating the brand’s Hong Kong roots.

Owala Color Drop – Water Bottles Just Happier!

June 9, 2022

You know it. You love it.

FreeSip

OWALA – The bottle that’s taking the market by storm. Of course, it’s leak proof, insulated (24 hours cold) and easy to clean—those are all table stakes. The real magic is in the FreeSip® spout—which allows you to sip through the hidden, built-in straw or chug through the wide mouth opening. It’s like multiple choice, but the answer is always right. Comes in insulated stainless steel or BPA-free Tritan™ plastic—whatever floats your boat.

My kids have these in their daily rotation during the school year. And I always refresh our set come summer to make things feel different and fun! AJ starts basketball camp next week and he will brining this adorbs new Tangerine color along with him!

 

 

Here is a bit about the New Color Drop series!

 

What is this Color Drop you speak of?

We thought you’d never ask! The Color Drop is our brand new series of special-edition colors. These bottles will be sold in extremely limited quantities. Only 500 bottles will be up for grabs. Once they sell out, they’re gone forever (but never forgotten… especially if you get one of your own).

If we had to guess, these Color Drops will sell out lightning fast. So if the idea of getting a one-of-a-kind color makes your heart skip a beat, don’t miss your chance to bring it home.

Really? You won’t ever restock them?

Nope. Unlike 90s styles, these colors won’t be making a comeback. But that’s the beauty of it… you’ll receive a bottle unlike anyone else’s. Well, minus the other 499 people who are also able to grab one. But the chances of running into those people are pretty low.
