Moms & Dads! Grandparents too! Prepare your children for the future & have FUN – MEET Leo Snowpard 😉 Help the children in your life gain economic understanding in early childhood. Younger children, in particular, have very little idea about where their parents’ money comes from. Although most children at the beginning of elementary school know that their parents’ work is connected to pay, they often believe the money comes from the bank. With the observation of direct payment procedures, it is difficult for some children to understand the “exchange process with money” and the associated challenges. That’s why you’ll love the Leo Snowpard book series (available on Amazon!). Learn more at www.leosnowpard.com <3

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

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.”
Have you ever looked deeply into the eyes of a homeless person? Doing that can change your life in unexpected ways.
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

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!
♥ It Could Help You Focus
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.
♥ It Elevates Workout Performance
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!
♥ It Can Keep You Calm
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 😉

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.
