Father's Day Gift Guide: ROKiT phone

A product was given for review for my honest opinion. No other compensation was given.

We all know that Dads can be notoriously hard to shop for on Father's Day. This year, gift him something he'll actually use, a new ROKiT phone.

ROKiT, a people-first telecomms company that launched this spring makes it easier than ever to keep in touch with unlimited wifi calling. With or without a SIM card, dad can reach you anytime he's on wifi. The line of affordable mobile handsets (ranging from $34.99 - $299.99) feature perks including ROK Drive (to help you out when you get a flat) and ROK Health (with telemedicine).

If your dad is keeping up with the latest technological advances, he'll get a kick out of watching videos on his new ROKiT IO Pro 3D with glasses-free 3D technology. Through the ROKFLIX 3D app, he’ll have access to an expansive catalogue of feature films and custom content.

We received the ROKiT IO 3D and we are LOVIN' It!
The name speaks for itself. The screen on this unlocked smartphone has glasses-free built-in 3D capability. That's right - you can watch 3D content without glasses. It includes 4G, 16 GB memory, dual-SIM, and a fingerprint sensor.

Every IO Pro purchase includes:
  • 12 months of ROK Talk free: Call any number in the US, plus 60 countries.
  • 3 months of ROK Media free: Enjoy music, games, TV, Movies, and the world's largest 3D library, all accessible through your ROK Launch Control app.
  • 12 months of ROK Health free: Talk to a doctor 24/7, and save up to 70% off prescription medication.

ROKiT phones are the perfect gift for dads because it's something they'll actually use!

Get Backpacks that will LAST from THE SMARTY CO.

A product was given for review for my honest opinion. No other compensation was given.
Let me tell you as a teacher and a mother...backpacks don't usually last long at all!! And they can be so expensive for a cute one with a character your child likes. But usually they don't last through the school year!

Today alone, I had to throw THREE backpacks away from my children because they were ripped up and beaten from the previous school year and I will have to replace them for next year's school year!

Never Again!!!

I have now turned to THE SMARTY CO. for my children's school backpacks!

The clear solution is THE SMARTY CO. which has earned the reputation as the most durable clear backpack in the market and offers convenient online delivery right to your door.
THE SMARTY CO. has quickly become the industry leader in quality, innovation, and style.

Breeze through security checks without opening your bag, and feel confident that SMARTY’s upgraded materials, reinforced stitching, and military grade nylon bottom will last longer than the other less expensive brands. Large Pockets with Smooth Zippers and a Big Water Bottle Holder are convenient features for the modern day student, airport employee, or correctional officer.

Help the Environment by Making the Switch to @Oi4me Feminine Hygiene Products!

A product was given for review for my honest opinion. No other compensation was given.

Hey all you women! Want to do your part to help the environment??

Women may not realize that over the lifetime of their period they use about 11,000 feminine hygiene products – that amount of waste piles up to 8-times higher than the Golden Gate Bridge!

But what to do? 

Organic Initiative (Oi) is a New Zealand company that is bringing 100% cotton affordable biodegradable feminine hygiene products to everyday women. They are the first biodegrable FP to be sold in the stores.

I have used these and I love them - they are definitely equal (or better!) to other feminine hygiene products I used to use! I don't think I will ever go back to other mainstream products!

I love that they are made with organic cotton and they are biodegrable applicators!

Buy It:

You can purchase Organic Inititiave feminine hygiene products at online or at a local store near you!
