With a family of asthmatics, it’s important to have quality air in our home.  Airfree Onix 3000 Air Purifier has been our saving grace the last several months.  Today I’m finally sharing my thoughts with all of you on this product.

Airfree Purifiers to the rescue

Hawaii has been experiencing a series of earthquakes and volcano eruptions over the last several months.  Many homes on the island of Hawai’i (otherwise known as the Big Island or Hawai’i Island) have been destroyed due to the volcano.  Air quality issues throughout the island haven’t been ideal and the voggy conditions make for horrible breathing.  While being outside sometimes can make breathing difficult, it doesn’t have to be when you are indoors.  The Airfree Air Purifier systems sterilize your air without the use of a filter.  These units allow air to flow in and out while killing airborne allergens.  Things like pollen, dust mites, mold and contaminated air are killed leaving fresh air behind.

How do Airfree Purifiers work?

By using heat to destroy airborne allergens and contaminated air, Airfree draws microbiological antigens and kills them.  Airfree has won many awards for its efficiency.  It is a patented technology that requires absolutely no maintenance.  We have the Airfree Onix 3000 and it is a purifier recommended for rooms up to 650 square feet.  The Thermodynamic TSS Technology destroys all the yucky stuff in our air like:  mold, dust mites, bacteria, viruses, pollens, pet dander, tobacco and other organic allergens.  Airfree reduces indoor harmful ozone levels and is perfect for mold-contaminated areas as well as asthma and allergy sufferers.  As I mentioned previously, my whole family suffers from asthma and our Airfree Purifier has made living with asthma so much easier.  

So what is the Airfree Onix 3000

Airfree’s exclusive technology is completely silent and we love that there is no expensive filters or maintenance required for the unit.  It’s small and portable and makes it’s easy for us to use in our house, while still keeping it out of the way.  The unit releases neither ozone nor ions and is has low energy consumption.  We plug it in and leave it on for as long as we need it.  Our current unit has been plugged in and running for several months without issue.  We also love that it offers environmentally friendly technology and is so user-friendly.  Simply plug it in and let it do its job. 

How does the Airfree Purifier get rid of all the yuck in the air?

Airfree’s exclusive technology works by eliminating microorganisms and allergens, destroying them in a fraction of a second.  Depending on the model you have, between 14,000 and 20,000 liters of air pass through the Airfree device every hour.  (Can you even imagine how much air that is?  It’s a lot!!) The Airfree can easily treat the air in a room in a very short amount of time.  The process works similarly to sterilizing water by boiling it.  Basically, when water is boiled, microorganisms within the water are eliminated.  In the same way, Airfree continually draws in air from the room, heating it to over 400°F and instantly sterilizes it.  The purified air is then cooled inside the device before it is released back into the room.   The entire process is so silent that you don’t even know that it’s happening.  The only thing I do notice is that our unit is warm to the touch, sometimes, it even feels hot, but never burns the skin.

What are my thoughts on Airfree?

After using the Airfree Onix 3000 in our home now since June, I have found such a huge difference in our air quality.  There is less coughing in the middle of the night and our asthma has not been as bad in the last few months.  Our Airfree Purifier is so easy to use, just plug in and let it go.  These purifiers come with a hefty investment, but there is literally no maintenance or changing of filters.  If you ask me, in just a few short months, the unit pays for itself.  I don’t know what we would do without our Airfree.  It has easily become one of our favorite products we’ve tested over the years.  So much so, that we purchased a unit for a family member who suffers from asthma too and she loves it.  I also love that the air in my home is so clean and cleaner air makes for less Eczema flare ups.  It’s been a great last few months using this product.   The Airfree also helps to eliminate bacteria and viruses in our home.  Unlike traditional air filters on the market, Airfree is efficient enough to work with the smallest microorganisms.  

Have you heard of the Airfree Air Purifier systems?  There are a few different ones to choose from.  They come in different price points as well.  You can get all the details on these units by visiting the Airfree website.  

Thank you, Airfree and my PR company for giving my family the opportunity to test out a unit.  I apologize that this post and video are so delayed in being released.

We are literally a couple of days away from the new year and ringing in 2017, so I thought this would be the perfect time to go ahead and share my thoughts on the 2017 KITLife Planner with all of you.  I’m a huge lover of KITLife Planners, this particular planner being my fourth that I own.  Each year I have found a new way to use the planner and I’m so overjoyed with the changes that KITLife has made to the planner that I’m excited to share it with all of you.  The KITLife planner is a daily planner layout that allows you to literally grab life by the hands and make it wonderful.  The KITLife planner is more than just a planner, but a community – encouraging women to be productive, grateful, healthy, giving and live a life full of intention.  This Planner has made such a difference in how I do things daily and yearly and I’m going to share it with all of you.

The KITLife Planner retails for $58.00.  I know, I know… many have told me in years past that that is such a hefty cost for something that you may throw out at the end of each year.  But here’s what I have to say about it… “Life is an Investment and to make it fruitful, we need to invest in the proper tools to help it grow.” (Yes, I wrote that… lol)  A Planner is just that, a tool to help keep you organized.  The KITLife Planner is a daily planner that consists of a monthly and daily layout.  I find that a daily layout is my favorite for the lister in me, I love writing out my daily to-do’s and track my progress as I complete each task.

KITLife Planner, planner, 2017 planner, daily planner, planner addict, planner review, 2017 planner review, keeping it together planner, planner peace, planning,

There are three different types of planner covers available for 2017 – The Classic Edition (which is what I am sharing with you), the Crown Edition ($72.00 – the Gorgeous White with Gold Foil cover) and The Festival Edition ($65.00 a fun cover with pink, blue and purple triangles).  Each Planner also offers you the opportunity to add in additional pages to customize your planner (at an additional cost).  The pages include:  Note Add-In, Graph Add-In, Budget Add-In, Direct Sales Add-In, Direct Sales Team Add-In and Teach Add-In.  These add-ins must be ordered at the time you order your planner.  Each plan is estimated to ship in 5-7 business days after placing your order.

So, let’s get into all the fun details.  The 2017 KITLife Planner has a new hardcover which feels much like suede.  The Team at KITLife call it the Velvet Technique in printing the cover.  It has a really cool and smooth texture that make this planner feel so luxe.  I absolutely love it and I LOVE that the planner cover is now a hardcover instead of their laminated cover like they have had in previous years.  This new hardcover makes the planner much more durable and protects the pages within.  The KITLife Planner also comes with a movable dashboard as it did last year.  I really enjoyed this option last year, but sadly, my dashboard didn’t last me past the 2 month mark.  I’m pretty brutal.  But, KITLife made some revisions and now has a very sturdy design that’s perfect for the 2017 planner.  I love that it is still easy to move and flexible without being too flimsy.  It’s a great addition and I love it.

The planner is smaller in size in comparison to past years.  Honestly, I LOVE this because it was a bit cumbersome to take my KIT with me on the go.  While I still do not take it with me usually, I love that I have that option should I decide to do so.  While it is a bit smaller in size – you still get the same amount of writing space as you did in previous years.  The monthly calendar spread also offers the same amount of space for writing which is great.

KITLife Planner, planner, 2017 planner, daily planner, planner addict, planner review, 2017 planner review, keeping it together planner, planner peace, planning,

The Daily pages offer a variety of different options for daily planning.  A Checklist that also has a place for daily tracker stickers (available through KITLife), The Big 3 for Top To-Do’s each day, Time Slots from 6am to 8pm for appointments and time management listing, Wellness Tracker (to help keep track of water intake, weight and exercise and Gratitude to list what you are thankful for each day or special events that occurred.  Each weekly page also includes a Quote by various people (one of my favorite parts of this planner) and you still get a Doodle Break that is listed on the months that have a spare page before the monthly layout.  These doodle breaks are what I use to jot down any notes for the month that I need to reference like conversations on the phone, etc.

The Daily Pages have been revised in comparison to previous years which I LOVE.  I really needed an area to list my appointments and I love that there is an option for that now.  Below is a photo of last year’s layout for the daily section.  As you can see, the Fit & Fab Tip is no longer on the page, however, I still have the same amount of writing page, but I have it organized in sections to really list out what I need for the day.  I LOVE IT!

Saturdays and Sundays are still sharing one page with the “Peek at the Week” for the week following which I enjoy.  I really liked that option on my previous KITLife Planners, so I do like that it was continued.  But, I love the layout for this year’s 2017 planner much more.  I think it’s just streamlined overall and makes it so much more appealing to my eyes to keep organized.  The Peek at the Week is my place where I tend to plan out my blog posts for the following week, so I like that it’s still included.

KIT = Keeping It All Together

The KITLife Planner has a great Welcome Page for each month that talks about Wellness, Food and Extra Tidbits to keep you motivated and you still get your Quarter Check-ins every 3 months as you have in previous planners.  I love the simplicity in this planner in that it takes you to the last day of the month without adding extra bulk, unless you purchased any of the add-ins I mentioned previously.  At the end of the planner you get a paper pocket on the back cover (I’ll be using this for receipts for donations) as well as a zip pouch which I plan to use to hold my post-its and stickers.

The KITLife offers gorgeous colors through out and is perfect for someone who loves a decoration or color but doesn’t really do the decorating themselves.  The planner through out offers a theme that really is visual and perfect for inspiring you to keep on top of your tasks.  I love that this is overall a Functional Planner for me.  Each year I use several planners and the KITLife is what I consider to be my “Hub-all” planner, where I plan my days out while keeping myself on task.  I list everything in this planner from my daily life (quick excerpts) and my to-do list as well as my blog and youtube channel tracking.

 All of the KITLife Planners are designed, printed, assembled and packaged in the United States.  The 2017 Planner is 8.5″ wide by 8.75″ tall and is less than an 1″ thick.  Each planner is bound with a metal coil which is approximately 2″ in diameter.  The Planner pages are printed on 70# paper, which is sturdy and has held up to me using highlighters, felt tip pens and even some of my markers.  And, this is a traditional yearly planner that begins on January 1st and ends on December 31st.

Walk through the product layout and get an overview in my video here:

The KITLife Planner is one of my favorites because it is something I can use for my entire life’s organization.  Like I’ve mentioned before, I use several planners at any given moment, but my KITLife Planner is my hub for EVERYTHING – my personal and family schedule & appointments, to-do’s, blog and YouTube and so much more.  Since it is not quite 2017 yet, I’ll come back in a few months and share how I have been utilizing this planner so you can get an idea on what might work for you.

So – what about you?  Are you a planner addict like me?  Do you think this planner would work for you in planning and keeping you organized?

As a mother with skin sensitivities, I’m constantly on the hunt for products that will help to make my “mommy duties” a little less hectic and keep my family healthy.  With three boys running around and keeping active, I’m always on my toes to be one step ahead of them at all times.  Since cleaning products are a part of my every day routine in keeping the house and family in order, I’m always on the hunt for products that provide natural ingredients and a limited amount of harsh chemicals we see in most products sold in the stores today.  Since I have many sensitivities to products, I’m constantly looking for products that will not affect my Eczema or cause any skin issues for my children as well.  Recently I’ve been introduced to method laundry detergent and I’m fortunate to have found a product I know will work for my family.  Since doing laundry and keeping clothes clean are essential in any family, I wanted to share a few tips on how my family and I keep on top of these mounds of threads.

Twin boys

To keep our work load at a minimum for our family of five, we tend to do laundry at least 2 times a week and on average 3 or 4.  This helps to cut down the size of the load but also makes it easier so that we are not washing 5 loads of laundry in one day.  I think it is a bit more convenient for our family to drop a load in every couple of days and it keeps us on top of the laundry and piles of clothes that we often accumulate.

Method_Detergent_031315_Spring_Garden_040x

When using a detergent, find one that is effective and that works.  There are so many brands on the market today and it’s essential to find one that will provide you with clean clothes each and every time and still keep your colors bright and your whites – white!  The new 4x concentrated method laundry detergent has naturally derived cleaning power that is tough on dirt and stains.  It works great in cold water – which helps you use less energy for every load and it is great for pre-treating stains.

Use products that will work double-duty… make sure they are not only effective for removing stains, but also keeping your children’s clothes (and yours) fresh and smelling clean until it’s used.  With a fragrance-forward expansion of their laundry portfolio, memory laundry detergent includes a wide range of scents that are different then the same old, common laundry ones.  There is a scent for everyone from fruity (ginger mango), floral (spring garden), herbaceous-woody (beach sage and fresh clover) and for those who are sensitive to fragrance – free + clear which has no fragrance at all.  Use your favorite scents year round or change it up with the season.  This offers your household and your clothes a fresh smell all the time.  This is especially helpful for use on linens as it will offer a soft fragrance throughout the entire home.

children

Most importantly a laundry detergent that offers a great design for use may seem like it is not important, but it will help in saving money and time.  Have you ever experienced pouring your laundry detergent in  the included measuring cup only to spill it everywhere because the packaging was too bulky or just difficult to hold?  With an easy-to-use grip on the bottle instead of a handle, memory laundry detergent is not only easy to work with but also includes 100% post-consumer materials and is fully recyclable.  The bottle is also transparent, which means you will ensure to get down to the last drop.  No more are the days of wasting product since you can’t see what is left in a traditional detergent bottle.

Method_Detergent_031315_Fresh_Clover_128x

method Laundry Detergent is biodegradable and has a hypoallergenic formula which gives this sensitive skinned momma peace of mind that it will not cause adverse reactions for my families skin and health.  The bottles are fun and will be perfect to incorporate into any laundry room decor and again, method is available in fun scents that the family will enjoy.

It’s absolutely too cold to be going out for a run or dressing up to go to the gym… or at least that is my opinion, lol.  But, while it’s too chilly we shouldn’t neglect our exercise, or family time for that matter.  Since the boys and I tend to be on our own while my husband is at work we find ourselves exploring or often times going on walks, but the colder months make it a little more difficult.  Well, luckily we have a little fun and easy way to get our exercise in as well as family time.  One of our favorite workouts comes from moving along with the Just Dance 2015 Game for Wii.  Since my family loves music and loves to dance, this is fun in a case and we love it.

Just Dance 2015

Just Dance 2015 is the perfect game to get the whole family up and moving. With a fresh tracklist of more than 40 of the hottest hits and throwback tunes, there’s something for everyone! Players can dance along to hit songs like “Problem” by Ariana Grande ft. Iggy Azalea and “Happy” by Pharrell Williams, or classic favorites like “Walk This Way” by Run DMC & Aerosmith.

As a family we have really enjoyed the Just Dance games over the years and were super excited to get our groove on to the 2015 game.  In our opinion, while each song is definitely a hit and gets our heart pumping and our bodies moving, a few of our favorites include:

  • Pharrell Williams – Happy
  • Dead Or Alive – You Spin Me Rount (Like a Record) *A Personal Favorite since that is from my “Dancing Queen” era. lol
  • Maroon 5 – Maps
  • Iggy Azalea ft. Rita Ora – Black Widow

Just Dance 2015

Since all three of my children love to dance, just like their parents – when the disc gets put into the game console, everyone eagerly awaits their turn and then goes for it when it’s their time.  My ten year old loves the music selection since many of the songs are popular with he and his friends and the twins, they just love to rock out – dancing the night away while we all get some extra exercise in and our body moving for some extra cardio.  Just Dance 2015 is a great way to get the entire family on their feet for some exercise in disguise—have fun while burning calories!

Just Dance 2015

The Just Dance 2015 release includes new songs and fun wacky choreography to keep you moving and dancing to the beat of your own drum… but most importantly, it’s fun and keeps us active during this time of year when going out to play is not as feasible.

To bring awareness to National Bullying Prevention Month, Just Dance 2015 and Stomp Out Bullying have partnered to show people everywhere that “it’s okay to dance to your own beat!”

Purchase Just Dance 2015 available now on Amazon for Wii, Wii U, Xbox 360, Xbox One, Playstation 3 and Playstation 4.  Depending on your system and console, pricing can and will vary.

Get your fun and dance on with your family and friends and dance to the beat of your own drum with Just Dance 2015.
