Why Should Mum’s BOOM ?

What is Boom Connections & why do you need another social media app? In this hyper-connected digital world, what does Boom offer that all the others don’t?

After all, your phone is already always with you. Through it you are connected to the world, to your family & friends. With apps like Facebook you can keep up with what friends from school & what they are up to long after graduation day… & of course you can let them all know what you are up to, keeping friendships intact years beyond what once was possible. Yet, there is something, or rather, someone missing.

That missing part of the social media experience is sometimes your family, particularly those who are intimidated by the crazy & confusing world of the interwebs. Usually, they’re the older ones. You know, the mom, uncle, grandad or grandma that you just managed to talk into getting a new phone. They’re probably just confused by the whole process & the constant changes that Facebook is infamous for. Or they wouldn’t post anything anyway.

Others are more concerned about security. They don’t want their personal stuff stored in a server somewhere that’s going to get hacked & sent who knows where. Then there are the countless “friend” requests from people they’ve never met, curated posts they don’t care about, & constantly changing privacy rules they have to actively opt out of.

Let’s be fair, it isn’t hard to understand why they don’t bother.

Of course, then those same people complain at every family gathering that you don’t call or keep in touch. We dont get enough pics of the kids or see what they are doing.

As a result, those connections can weaken over time. What is a millennial mum to do?

Boom Connections can help.

Boom Connections is a new social media app that is designed specifically with all of these things in mind. Boom accomplishes this through its unique Author & Follower system.

Boom Connections allows you to share your posts from your social media accounts to a family member who doesnt have a social media account.

When downloading the Boom app you can choose to be an Author or a Follower.

The Author option lets you sync your Facebook & Instagram accounts with Boom. You can then share posts with your Followers by swiping right, or just dismiss the post by swiping left.

That way, you only share the posts you want to share, perfect if you don’t think grandma should see that pic of you last Friday with the girls or school mums having a few chardonays to clear your head after a busy week with the kids. But of course, they do want to see every snap shot you take of the kids growing up.

Followers are added just by sending an email request. You may need to walk your tech-adverse friends & family through the install process & setting up a profile but once that it is done, all they really need to do is open up the app to see your latest posts. They don’t get requests from strangers, they don’t have to give up tons of personal information, & they don’t get spammed with a ton of posts they aren’t going to be interested in. There is even a private chat feature so you can connect through more than just a couple of posts.

In short, Boom Connections is the perfect solution to bringing your reluctant family & friends into the digital world so you can keep in touch & share pcis & memories, even when you are miles apart. Boom is a private& filtered envirmoment for them so they wont need a social media account or a public profile. You can find Boom in the iTunes Apps Store or the Google Play Store. Download and get reconnected today. www.getboom.com.au

3 Things To Expect Before Starting HCG Diet Program

The HCG diet plan can be incredibly beneficial in helping you cut down excess weight from your body. However, before you start the program, you should be fully aware of what to expect during the diet period. Otherwise, you might come across some unexpected issues that can discourage you and make you drop out from the diet plan midway. And this can be unfortunate since you would have easily lost weight if you have stuck with the program. Below, we look at a few things that you should expect before starting the HCG diet.

Hunger Pangs

Be ready to face some very intense hunger pangs. Since you will mostly be habituated with consuming about 2000 to 3000 calories per day, shifting onto a 500 calorie diet can indeed be grueling. In fact, you will experience extreme hunger at least for the first few days. However, you don’t have to worry about them since you can easily overcome such issues through some smart meal planning. Even though you are limited to 500 calories, you can still each sufficient food to make your stomach feel full. A good example would be a salad comprising of greens like spinach, bok choy etc. You can literally eat a few cups of the salad while only consuming less than 100 calories in total. Be sure to look for specialized HCG diet recipes on the internet. Go through them, and you will surely find a few recipes that are low in calories and satisfies your hunger.

Hormonal Changes

HCG is essentially a hormone. And since you will be injecting them into your body, it is natural that you should expect some hormonal changes. If you are a woman, then knowing how HCG diet effects hormones is necessary since it has a direct effect on your menstrual cycle. It is recommended that you stay away from using the HCG injections during the menstrual cycle since the high progesterone levels will likely block the HCG from correctly burning up the excess fat. Once you are past the menstrual cycle, you can restart with the injections. And when it comes to men, HCG injections can have a positive effect. In fact, if you are a guy taking HCG hormones, then you will likely see an increase in testosterone production.

Desire To Quit

Watch out for a very deep desire to quit the program. Such thoughts are likely to be more prevalent in the first week of the diet period. This mostly has to do with the hunger you feel. However, make sure that you steel your mind to overcome such feelings. A good way to do this will be to switch the thoughts about quitting with positive thoughts. For example, every time you have the desire to quit the diet plan, imagine yourself having a fit body. Think of the positive ways in which your friends and co-workers will react when they see a new you. Such thoughts alone are sufficient to help you avoid giving up on the program.

Benefits of Handcrafted Soaps!

What do you love most about your favorite commercial bar of soap? Is it the bubbly synthetic lathering agents? The “squeaky clean” feel of detergents? Or maybe you thrill to the skin drying hardener that makes for a long lasting bar.

If you are thinking that doesn’t sound like what I look for in a soap, then be sure that you ARE using soap. Take a look at the label. Don’t see the word soap? Then you are most likely using a detergent & that can mean an extremely drying, synthetic, chemical clean. Handcrafted soaps are a better, natural, gentle way to clean your delicate skin. 

You can feel the amazing difference between commercial bars & glycerin rich handcrafted soaps. Pectolite, LLC is the home of Simply Natural Bath & Body Products, which includes a line of handcrafted artisan soaps. Their unique formulations ensure that the skin loving oils that go into making their soaps is exactly what your skin gets out of each creamy, lathery, ever so emollient bar. Want softer, happier, more nourished skin naturally? Then give real soap a try. From the super sensitive to the seriously sensuous, Pectolite has handcrafted soap bars for all skin types, including those allergic to coconut, palm & olive oil. http://www.pectolite.net

The Season of Giving Is upon Us! FRESH Ideas to Give Back!

Whether it is donating goods or donating time, these family-friendly ideas courtesy of Go Organically Fruit Snacks are just some of many ways you & your family can help give back to those in need this season.

Thanksgiving will be here TOMORROW! Give back as a family! For many people, the season of gratitude is a great reminder to give back to those in need—whether it be by donating to a food drive, volunteering at a soup kitchen or giving money to a favorite charity. For parents like us, Thanksgiving season offers the perfect opportunity to teach kids about the importance of giving back to one’s community. After all, kindness counts!

Donating Goods

Make donating goods a family affair! Here’s how to get the whole crew involved:

  • Food Drives: Have kids go through cupboards with you to identify canned goods & boxed items that your family can donate to your local food drive. Ask older kids to check expiration dates to ensure freshness, & give younger kids the job of sorting or placing items in boxes. Or take a trip to the grocery store together & let kids help pick out items to buy & donate. By loading items onto the grocery belt & helping to bag & deliver goods, they’ll feel like an important part of the process.
  • Clothing Donations: Donating clothing is a win-win. You get to eliminate clutter & help those in need at the same time. Plus, you’re keeping items out of landfills by giving them a second life! Have kids play “fit model” by trying on clothing & seeing what no longer fits. They can also help sort, fold & bag clothing, &/or accompany you to the drop-off site.
  • Toy Drives: Many organizations, such as Toys for Tots, collect new, unwrapped toys for children in need during the holiday season. To get your kids involved, take them to the toy store & have them pick out a gift that they think a little boy or girl their age might like. They’ll love getting to weigh in with a kid’s perspective!

Donating Time

There’s no better way for parents& kids to bond than to do some good together. Here are some of our favorite ideas for pitching in as a family:

  • Visit VolunteerMatch to locate volunteer opportunities in your area. You can filter your search by “kids” to find age-appropriate activities that all family members can participate in—from park cleanups to animal rescue efforts & more.
  • Check with your school, place of worship or community groups to see if they need any assistance with charitable programs. Is the PTA collecting toiletries for a local women’s shelter? Volunteer your family to design, print & distribute flyers to get the word out. Is your child’s scout troop visiting a nursing home for holiday caroling? Dress your spouse &  kids in cute matching sweaters & attend as a family to belt out holiday tunes.
  • Don’t wait for a formally organized effort to spread kindness or lend a hand. Pay a family visit to an elderly neighbor who may be lonely, or buy a bunch of craft supplies & sit down together to make holiday cards for the troops. Welcome the new family in town by shopping for & assembling a basket of goodies. Bonus points if you include Go Organically Organic Fruit Snacks.

Happy helping from all of us at Go Organically! Made with real fruit, our gluten-free, nut-free, dairy-free kids snacks are a great choice for your on-the-go life. Be sure to follow us on Facebook for more kid-friendly ideas!

Great Minds – Storybooks for Kids on Success & Achievement: a Series of Books for Ages 5 & up, That Teach Fundamental Social, Financial, Personal, & Life Skills Necessary for Adulthood

To ensure our children learn the necessary skills to have a successful future in their workplace, personal lives, & anything else they set their mind to, INSYL has developed a comprehensive set of children’s books that explain vital concepts in ways young minds can understand & absorb! These include:

  • Focus: Dedicating enough mental resources to a task, & giving it the necessary attention.
  • Motivation: Harnessing the energy & drive needed to see things through to the end.
  • Confidence: Recognizing their worth & ability, & using that to put forth a poised image.
  • Goal Setting: Assessing realistic & desirable objectives to work towards.
  • Time Management: Using a limited amount of time wisely & with maximum results.  

Crafted with two specific age groups in mind (5+ & 7+), the INSYL series is divided into three units, each dealing with a specific focus.

1. Financial Education
Give your child an elevated advantage to build a secure, prudent, frugal, & wealthy future.

3. Artistic Consciousness
Propel their subconscious thinking, inspire imagination, & cultivate creativity.

Only 17% of teens in the US have any idea how to manage their money, & more than half lack basic workplace & life skills. Activities as useful as making a study timetable or having the confidence to give a presentation in class are left undeveloped in lieu of social media, video games, & internet hours, & with one in three persons currently having zero dollars saved for retirement, it’s clear this isn’t a problem that corrects itself with age.

The statistics proved that 3 out of 4 teens turn for financial advice to their parents.

The fact is that us parents, we’re tasked with preparing our kids for their future, giving them the lessons & support they need to eventually stand on their own when we can no watch over them. When your child is ready to begin their adult life in the next twelve to fifteen years, will you be able to confidently say that you’ve done all you can to help them face the challenge?

She said she loved it all, but especially the chapters about Perry’s  earliest memories of growing up a shy boy in New Orleans. Despite struggles at a young age Perry learned incrdedible  lessons about integrity, trust in God, and the power of forgiveness. Motherstucker could not agree more. This NEW release is a page-turning book of inspiration by one of the great cultural icons of our time.To celebrate the release, Motherstucker & Review Wire Media for Penguin Random House have a “Higher is Waiting” by Tyler Perry GIVEAWAY! The giveaway is for 1 hard cover copy of “Higher is Waiting” by Tyler Perry –  If you have won the same prize on another blog, you will not be eligible to win it again. Shipment make take 4-6 weeks.
