Amazing 8-in-1 Multi-functional Aluminium Smartphone Holder

 Ever had your smartphone slip off your hand? Ever had to use books to prop up your smartphone to watch a video? KlipAL is an ingenious solution to all these common problems & many more. It is not your ordinary smartphone accessory that performs only a single function. In contrast, KlipAL is designed with everyone in mind, with exceptional adjustability to adapt to everyday activities & enhance user experience. Be fascinated with its application in docking, browsing, photography, in-car, gaming etc.

KlipAL is ultra-versatile & will work with phones ranging from iPhone 5 to iPhone 7+ & even tablets. With its spring-loaded clamping mechanism, interchanging between devices & sharing KlipAL with family & friends is possible. This feature also allows endless positioning & tilt angle adjustments to enhance user comfort. Remarkably, the holder has a solid luxurious build & is made primarily of aluminium. It has an attractive brushed metal finish & will be available in four desirable colours: silver, black, grey & gold. Get yours for as low as £20 (≈ USD$25) when it launches on Kickstarter. There will be limited stocks at this specially discounted price, so sign up here (www.KlipAL.co.uk/signup) to get early notification of the launch date & be in front of the queue. As a bonus, you will also stand a chance to win FREE upgrades!!

Ending with a trivia, KlipAL is made up of three main words, Klip = clip = holder; pAL = friend, companion; & AL = aluminium element from the periodic table.

Being a Parent Means Making 100 Decisions a Day…

Many times we wish to consult/make decisions in groups with other parents. Usually it leads to endless discussions rather than quick answers. Until NOW! 

APEO is a free app which allows anyone to quickly create a one-question poll on mobile & share it through chat (whatsapp or messenger groups) & social (FB, twitter & more) simultaneously.
Results from all funnels are shown anonymously in app in real time.

For example, I can ask my FB friends which stroller I should get or make a decision on a present to the kindergarten teacher on a whatsapp group instantly without chatter!

Twitter Party Invite + Printable Coupon for New & Improved Luvs Ultra Leakguard Diapers with NightLock Plus™ & AmEx Gift Card Giveaway!

Disclosure: This review was made possible by iConnect & Luvs. MotherStucker was provided compensation to facilitate this post, but all opinions stated are 100% mine.

The 2016 Holiday Season is officially underway! MotherStucker & Luvs are celebrating the season with $SavingS! As the official diaper of experienced parents, Luvs is always committed to providing Moms & Dads with value — recognizing that parenting can be difficult — so diapering shouldn’t be. Luvs provide high-quality features for less cost than premium brands!
00001

Parenthood is a roller coaster ride, but experienced parents take it all in stride. Moms & Dads value things that help them get through the day & make life easier! Did you know:

  • Nearly 2 in 3 moms have never taken a day completely for themselves.
  • 81% of moms would prefer an entire day off from housework than dinner with their celebrity crush.
  • 87% of moms agree that the first time their child slept through the night was one of their best parenting times yet.
  • Even a short spurt of “me” time goes a long way! A quarter of moms feel that an uninterrupted shower was more relaxing than a day at the spa.
  • Other major moments moms value more now than before they became parents include sleeping past sunrise, watching television & movies that aren’t cartoons, & having an interrupted phone conversation.

THANKFULLY, Luvs recently introduced the new & improved Luvs Ultra Leakguard Diapers with NightLock Plus™ (Softer & more absorbent than ever before, with large stretch tabs for easy fastening, ultra-leakage protection & a money-back guarantee!)!

Reversing Holiday Weight Gain

The Holiday season is right around the corner & inevitably, with all these cookies, cocktails & apple pies, some of us will put on some weight. Kelly, a fitness expert from Lodlois.com, offers the following tips to reverse Holiday weight gain:

  1. Do not skip meals because this will make you feel hungrier. It will also slower your metabolism.
  2. Be as physically active as you can. With exercise not only will you burn calories, you will also have a positive mood.
  3. Join a clinically proven weight loss program like Nutrisystem.

How do you Netflix this November? Pillows? Hot Cocoa? Sweatpants? Make sure you have a solid wifi connection ensuring no connection disruptions by sending any smartphone toting teens OUT of the house. Kidding!

Cover Reveal! F*ck Club: Riley by Shiloh Walker!

 
Title:
F*ck Club: Riley (Book One)
 
Author:
Shiloh Walker
 
Release Date: January 27th 2017
 
 
 
 
 
 
The first rule of F*ck Club…we don’t talk about
it. We just do the job and get paid. 
 

 

And Riley Steele did his job very well. 


 

 

He’ll be the first to admit that his current life isn’t the one he’d foreseen.
It’s not even one he wants, but after his parents died and he was left to care
for two siblings and a mountain of debt, he was willing to do almost anything. 


 

 

Now, after almost ten years of being paid to pleasure, he’s almost numb to
it…and to women. 


 

 

That all changes with one phone call. 


 

 

Brianna Sharpe, the girl he’d loved as a boy, is leaving an abusive lover and
needs someplace to hide. 


 

 

Opening his home to Bree is easy. Protecting his heart is a different story.
She’d completely shattered it once already. 


 

 

But Bree has changed and Riley wants to think there might be a chance.
Only…what will she do when she discovers his secrets?
