Pockey, a premium, eco-friendly, and handcrafted women’s clutch line that prides itself on being the world’s first smart clutch product made from vegetable-tanned leather with RFID blocker, this week, in addition to its Kickstarter campaign, has launched an Indiegogo specific campaign for the Avant Garde clutch line. Following a successful Kickstarter campaign that raised almost 145% of the brand’s target, Pockey became one of the top 25% Kickstarter campaigns to achieve more than their intended goal.
Passionate about developing the perfect smart clutch product that satisfies every woman’s daily demands, Pockey set out to create specially handcrafted clutches, made from eco-friendly premium leather, that is five times more durable than conventional clutches available today, for longevity and personal item protection.
“Traditional brands feel outdated today. They’re overpriced, out-of-reach, and poorly made, resulting in product degradation after only a few months of ownership,” said Karthik, Co-Founder of Pockey. “As for the inexpensive clutch brands, they are either low quality or poorly designed, putting personal items and cards at constant risk. None of these brands take care of the credit card information therein, which is where we come into play.”
Contactless card reader technology is more prevalent today than ever before. People are able to scan and read credit card information directly through purses, clutches, and wallets. Credit card information is at an especially high risk of being stolen from cards in the clutches available to consumers today.
“Many people don’t realize that people passing them by or sitting next to them on a bus or subway can use technology to scan and read credit card information,” said Ishaan. “It’s an unsettling new reality we have to live with today in 2017. With our RFID blocker technology, we’re able to keep all cards within Pockey protected from unwanted viewers.”
Pockey clutches are made from vegetable tanned full-grain leather, sourced directly from Tuscany, Italy. To produce this special leather, it requires 40-days of skilled craftsmanship, compared to just one day for machine-made and chrome-tanned leather. Pockey comes in four colors: Cardinal, Navie, Misty, and Opaque. Most importantly, each Pockey comes with a built-in Smart RFID Blocker that keeps the clutch resistant to card scanners and invasive technology.
Other Pockey features include ethically sourced eco-friendly tanned leather, easy to repair leather that won’t wear out under normal usage, world-class craftsmanship, and comfort with every design. Each Pockey can hold 8-cards, a coin pouch, an iPhone 7 Plus, a slim power bank, and 2 bills compartment. Additionally, Pockey is less than 150 gms, which feels like a feather in hand.
For anyone who backs the campaign, they are promised a Pockey before the holiday season, ensuring their vitality as gifts for any interested consumer.
“We never want to compromise quality, which is why we’re seeking crowdfunding support to make our hand-crafted, eco-friendly, and sustainable, safe clutches accessible at a price that people can afford,” said Ivy.

MOMS! Meet Lisa Blaurock, President of Affordable Allergy Testing. Her story is a MUST READ!
“After having my kids, I always struggled with my weight. I even had lap band surgery (also had the band removed… long story). After having my band removed my doctor told me he would see me back when I started to gain the weight back again… What??? Frankly I was pissed off so I started to look for answers because I hardly ate anything and slowly the weight start to creep back on… well I found a doctor that suggested I get an allergy / intolerance test… at the cost of $850!!! But I was desperate for answers… got the results back and found out that I was allergic to gluten and dairy among other things…. I immediately went cold turkey and I realized all the issues I was having with heartburn, burping, upset stomach etc. was due to my FOOD.
Several months later my daughter (a collegiate athlete) complained of her constant upset stomach and bloating. So, I decided to find a less expensive way to get her tested… I thought I had found a good price at testing for $250.00… after getting her results (just like me, she is gluten and dairy intolerant) I decided affordable allergy testing was needed. I contacted a lab and asked to partner with them. That is how Affordable Allergy Testing was created.
Now my mission is to spread the word of affordable testing and when you get your results it is up to you on your response… I have had some customers go all in like I did but I have also had some just keep the information in the back of their minds so they know when they eat something and when they don’t feel good they know it isn’t a “bug”, it is a reaction. I am not asking everyone to change their lifestyle but I want to give you the tools to know what is happening to your body at a particular time.”

When artist Jeff Horn sat down with the first of his homeless subjects in 1992, his vision was simple: interpret and reveal the personality of the people who agreed to have their portrait drawn from life. At first, the men and women who congregated at Episcopal Services Alliance felt they might be demeaned, but this all changed after the first drawing was complete. The dignity and authenticity of the portraits Jeff Horn created reveal a depth of humanity that connects every one of us, regardless of our race, our beliefs, or, most poignantly, whether or not our homes have doors.
As the work progressed, Jeff began to realize that the process of making the drawings was cathartic, both for him and for the sitter. As Jeff writes in the Foreword of In Our Eyes In Our Words:
“I realized my drawings mean more than catching their likeness. For my homeless subjects these portraits were an acknowledgment of their existence; something they seldom felt.”
As Jeff realized his subject often were willing to share stories from their lives, he began handing each a piece of paper with an invitation to write something about their experiences on the street. These handwritten statements, reproduced alongside the portrait of the person who wrote them and transcribed in many cases for readability, offer us a direct, first-hand look into the life of the homeless person whose eyes convey what mere words never could.
“Of all the things I have done artistically, I am most proud of this endeavor. I hope that all who view this portfolio of drawings will sense their common humanity with those on the street.”
— Jeff Horn, October 2017

Lose yourself in the music! Did you know that listening to music is actually GOOD for you? abc NEWS published, “5 Science-Backed Reasons Why Music is Good for You” & Motherstucker is turning UP the tunes!
♥ Music Can Help Ease Pain
Feeling achy? A study conducted in the journal Frontiers in Psychology found that when fibromyalgia patients were exposed to 10-minutes of music they liked—anything from pop to folk to classical— that was slower than 120 beats per minute, they experienced less pain versus when they listened to pink noise. The participants also saw an increase in their mobility with the music. Listening to country singer & songwriter Chris Stapleton eases all Motherstucker’s pains! Check out Chris Stapleton on Instagram too!
Next time you’re preparing for a work presentation or studying for something, listen to a little Vivaldi or Bach. A 2007 study from the Stanford University School of Medicine found that tuning into music from the late baroque period, leads to changes in the brain (recorded by an fMRI scan) that help with attention & storing events into memory.
We all know that bopping to a little Beyoncé can be a lifesaver during that cardio kickboxing class, but did you know it could also be the key to successfully sweating through those unbelievably grueling high-intensity interval training (HIIT) sessions, too? Researchers had 20 active adults perform two interval workouts— four, 30-second “all-out” cycling sprints with four minutes of rest in between—one with music & one without. Those who sweated to beats not only found the interval training much more enjoyable, but it also revved them up, making them exercise harder, too.

♥ It Cheers You Up
As we creep into the colder months, those winter blues have a way of raining on our happiness parade. Luckily, music is a proven spirit saver. According to a 2011 study published in the journal Nature Neuroscience, certain classical tunes caused folks to get the chills, which in turn led to the release of dopamine, a chemical in the brain that can help you feel jollier. To feel jolly, Motherstucker recommends composer, orchestrator, & conductor John Ross Jesensky. Check out John Jesensky on Instagram too!
Switching to mellow music during a stressful drive may prevent road rage & even help you drive better, according to a 2013 study in the journal Ergonomics. Researchers found that upbeat music made people happy, but as soon as the drive became demanding, an abrupt dial change to more soothing tunes kept study participants calmer & boosted driving ability better than those who didn’t change the station as quickly.

5 years ago THIS month Motherstucker started blogging! It has been a wonderful crazy adventure that I highly recommend 😉 To celebrate, I’m sharing advice for overcoming some of blogging’s biggest false steps.
-Don’t Set Yourself an Unrealistic Publishing Schedule
Wait, what? A schedule? YES, do yourself a favor & invest in a daily planner. Schedule your posts to hit at even intervals (1 per day or 3 per week vs. 3 per day on Tuesday with 0 posts on Wednesday & Thursday). Scheduling doesn’t just apply to blog posts either! Be sure to calendar your social media posts as well! Publishing too frequently – or infrequently can be maddening for readers.
-Don’t Steal Images
Your posts will NEED pictures! Be sure to create your own, or use an image bank like Shutterstock to visually enhance your posts. So many bloggers have fallen down the rabbit hole of “borrowing” an image found on google. I often use fiverr to create fresh & new seasonal logos, feature pics, & special interest photos!There are severe consequences to stealing images – including litigation. Do yourself a favor in the long run & don’t go there! SCARY!
-Don’t Try to Go It Alone
You are NOT a blogging island. Reach out to other bloggers, reach out to those who have commented on your posts, reach out to companies directly! Join social media blogging groups, attend blog conferences! Your blogging will improve when you have a TRIBE <3 Where to start? Follow Motherstucker on Instagram & also check out Grace Lever reviews on Instagram – SHE is on a mission to equip female entrepreneurs to build the lifestyle business they deserve. Join the doer’s inner circle!
-Don’t Forget Social Media Sharing Options
Honesty Hour: MY MOTHER HATES THE NAME OF MY BLOG. She won’t even acknowledge that I have a blog, yet alone utter the word “MOTHERSTUCKER”. However, I know that she DOES read it, because she will ask about specific things that I’ve only shared ON the Motherstucker blog. So yea, it’s great that your mom regularly reads your material, but eventually you want to reach a wider audience with your blog posts – right? That’s why you need to make yourself as engaging, as clickable, & as shareable as possible. Obviously you start with great content & an eye-catching title. But how do you ensure that you’re reaching as wide a demographic? Social media is the key! Add a little convenience for your readers. INSTALL social media sharing buttons. I personally use Access Press Social Share Plugin & find it super easy. Don’t believe me? Click the Facebook, Twitter, Google+, or Pinterest button below & SHARE this post to the social media outlet of YOUR choice 😉

YOU have Questions, Motherstucker has Answers !
• What is Vegan Shampoo?
A shampoo specifically made to exclude any ingredients that are related to animals — This means that every ingredient that is derived from animals in regular shampoos, is replaced with a plant-based substitute — For example instead of gelatin, derived from boiling animal bones, the manufacturer could use seaweed extract which performs the same job. Vegan hair care products will have different surfactants, preservatives & conditioners compared to typical shampoos but most people would not notice the differences as they are slight. In addition, not tested on animals makes it completely guilt-free.
Most animal derived ingredients have a plant based counterpart that works equally well. An increasing number of non-vegans are choosing these as well because they prefer products that are not tested on animals, & choosing vegan products is the best way to ensure this.
• Is Vegan Shampoo Better?
They will differ in ingredients from your standard shampoo. It can only be called vegan because the product does not use animal ingredients in any way & only contains organic, natural, & plant based additives. The different cleaning agents & chemicals mean that the directions for use may differ slightly from the norm. These shampoos are often higher quality & contain ingredients that do a great job of cleaning your hair and scalp. You may find that you will need to scrub for a bit longer to achieve the same lather as chemical laden shampoo but you may not have to wash your hair everyday as there will be less buildup to remove. Also, it seems the benefits far outweigh the added 30 seconds of lathering when you consider the following: Vegan hair care contain far fewer ingredients than their commercial counterparts. And that short list of ingredients are almost certainly organic and natural.
• Where Can I Find Vegan Shampoo?
For bricks & mortar shopping where to buy: Vegan shampoo at Walmart is mixed in with all the main brands, so always check the label. Vegan shampoo at Target was harder to find as they have a slightly smaller selection of cruelty free hair care brands.
The online resource for vegan products is amazing. Look for personal care products that fit with your lifestyle & your needs at the same time. Buying from trusted online stores that have a vegan symbol are the best bet. That ensures that your hair care will be cruelty free also. Whatever hair type, oily, dry scalp, colour treated or damaged, you can find the right product. A vegan stamp from an accredited organization is a sign of a product you can trust. Also, customer reviews tell a lot about a product too so take the time to check a couple before committing to buy. Motherstucker really likes Birch 3 Vegan Shampoo available here: https://birch3.com/vegan-shampoo/
• Which Shampoo Brands are Cruelty Free?
Vegan means that you don’t have animal derived ingredients, & the product is not tested on animals. So, in most cases Vegan means cruelty-free, but cruelty-free does not mean vegan. Cruelty-free products are not tested on animals but may contain animal ingredients. To determine which shampoo brands are Vegan or Cruelty Free, you have to do your research.
Be Healthy. Be Kind. Be Vegan.

Children will delight in this action maze adventure based on the English pangram, “The quick sly fox jumps over the lazy brown dog.” This pangram is used as a basis for extrapolating the story plots in this book. Children can make choices on how they want the story to unfold. Emotional intelligence points are awarded based on their choices. Parents will appreciate the emotional intelligence score scale focusing on friendship at the end of the book. One good example of an action maze adventure was showcased in the movie “Big” with Tom Hanks as the leading star. There was a scene in a boardroom at MacMillan Toy Company where the adult Josh and Susan presented a proposal for a computerized version of an action maze adventure, a story format that has existed in paperback form in real life for ages prior to this movie’s debut. It is ironic that the author has done the opposite, first by composing an action maze adventure in an online blog, and then converting it into a book.
Most of this story can be found for free online in this blog link below. The book has pictures, the EQ scale in the back of the book, and a few extra chapters that are not found in this blog.
Ms. Rebecca Rose Orton, the author, was born deaf. She learned American Sign Language again after being away from the Deaf community for nearly 20 years.

In life or death, sometimes the actions toward another person are not forgotten. The invasions of another persons mind set can cause the viewer to take a step back, sit up and imagine that the enemy does not see what is coming. They are in the inner part of the enemy head to feel the pain and not mix it up. In a new line up of horror stories, Mr. Marsh takes us to the existence that there is more to life and death that we already know. Marsh focuses hard on showing us the different views of how pain and a doormat person can live inside us all and not realizing it until it is to late. Marsh mind set is so strong on the death of him, that he sheds a dark light just to allow us to read a little concerning the demons inside us all. The style he shows is very conversational and straight forward in his own dark ways. A book inside a book, “The Deadly Vows” is the mindset of Mr. Marsh. “The Deadly Vows” is powerful and offers us to see the evil we care not to see. The question after reading this book is, “Is it safe to go out again, knowing that there are people that are out there with his mindset. The “The Deadly Vows” is a dark and painful raw emotions book to read and it bares a spectrum of themes to comprehend. Available NOW on Amazon!
