Most comfortable bed pillows: The EverPillow and its community give back

Woman enjoying her everpillow from infinite moon

my pillow of choice the curve ever pillow

As I continue my health and fitness journey, I am learning every day how important having a good night’s sleep is to maintaining good physical health. Do you know sleep can help heal as well as repair your heart and blood vessels? Sleep can also help your body keep up a healthy balance of hormones such ghrelin (the hormone which controls your hunger) and leptin ( the hormone that signals you are full). Being aware that my body is always working on supporting my physical health as well as healthy brain function, I wanted to work on improving my sleep environment and address sleep deficiency. That is when I realized I overlooked one essential accessory to my bedroom, a pillow design with my needs in mind.

Briana Booker product review on EverPillow

Being aware that my body is always working on supporting my physical health as well as healthy brain function, I wanted to work on improving my sleep environment and address sleep deficiency. That is when I realized I overlooked one essential accessory to my bedroom, a pillow design with my needs in mind.

Often I have pillows that are too soft or too sturdy. I find myself waking up in the middle night or my mind racing over worries or concerns I rather focus on during the day. Recently, I read up on ‘Why Is Sleep Important?’ from the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute. It was a helpful read and inspired me to research most comfortable bed pillows. Let’s just say I don’t regret the search.

You and EverPillow support those most in need

Even with The EverPillow being a great product, really love InfiniteMoon for the work it does with the Mile High Workshop, a Denver-based job training, and employment program that helps men and women transitioning back into the workforce after homelessness, addiction, and incarceration, get that much-needed new beginning.

I like the idea that every day is a new beginning. When you buy an EverPillow, you really are making a difference in the lives of other people who need a good support system. Check out your EverPillow options and buy now.

I got the Curve EverPillow pictured below:

Now playing: ‘Get 2 Kno Me’ by Yaysh | New music alert

Red Fashion statement from Yash
Music video Get 2 Kno Me Music video bath tub scene

Listening to new music,  Fromgirltogirl found a cool music video from the pop/hip hop artist and LGBTQ activist Yaysh entitled “Get 2 Kno Me”. We must warn you, the music video is all-nude.

Yaysh
Get 2 Kno Me (Music VIdeo)
Independent

About Get 2 Kno Me

“Get 2 Kno Me” is a romantic, reggae-pop song about falling in love. Freestyled out of both joy and sadness the song is a reflection of a culture increasingly afraid to fall in love. During the song, Yaysh explores the notions of vulnerability, self-esteem, lovemaking, and the overarching fearlessness of diving headfirst into a romantic relationship with her new single and accompanying music video. The sound is mellow, relaxing, and gives off positive vibes drawn from reggae pop influence.

“Nudity is being used as metaphor and message for baring it all because being naked is a form of completely showing yourself, at least on a physical level. It is a sign of inherent confidence in being human, that there is nothing wrong with who we are, nothing wrong with love, love-making, being completely naked and showing your entirety and letting people judge.  We deserve to feel comfortable in our own skin and to make love and enjoy ourselves and being human fully!” – Yaysh

Yaysh also emphasizes diversity, tying back to her idea that you have to bare it all to truly find love, regardless of race, gender, or sexual orientation.


“We deserve to celebrate our bodies and our beauty and sexuality and feel at home with who we are. We don’t need to be ashamed.” – Yaysh

How investing in the member experience pays off: Ashley Madison’s story

business growth by focusing on improving member experience strategy

 

In  2017, the President of Ashley Madison, the world’s leading married dating website, led efforts in massive growth for the website while making discretion and user-security top priorities. Now the company has released a new report by Ernst & Young that validates their user numbers, daily sign-ups, male-to-female ratio, and more. In 2017, AshleyMadison.com had more than 15,000 new member accounts daily. For every active paid male account, there were 1.13  active female accounts created in 2017 and the site nearly doubled the number of member accounts joining daily from 10,715 in April to 20,518 per day by October.

Ashley Madison spent the greater part of 2017 focusing the company on its original married dating roots – a space it invented and continues to lead. This report comes as the company is continuing its efforts to create a better Ashley Madison for its members, through platform enhancements and a renewed passion for improving the member experience. Last year alone, this focus on its members and commitment to the married dating space translated to 5,673,024 new accounts on the site.

“At Ashley Madison, our members’ experience is paramount,” said Ruben Buell, President and CTO, ruby Life Inc. (parent company of AshleyMadison.com). “That experience starts with trust; trust that we have built a community of like-minded individuals, trust that you will be able to find and connect with other members in this community, and trust that your experience will remain discreet.”

The company anticipates continuing improvements to the website to make it easier for people to join, find, and connect with one another in more than 50 countries and in 19 languages.

View the full report today.

Top 4 wedding life hacks from Burner | Weddings Examiner

Burner app wedding tips

In 2018, modern brides and grooms are using technology in creative, unexpected ways to save time and money for the big wedding day. With love still in the air from Valentine’s Day and summer wedding season quickly approaching, check out these wedding lifehacks from the popular Burner mobile app. Couples can use the app to make the stressful experience of planning their wedding a little easier.

Wedding lifehacks available through Burner Connections 

  • Easy RSVPs: Instead of collecting hundreds of paper postcards via snail mail, simply have your guests text your Burner number with their “happily accept”s and “regretfully decline”s. Burner’s Google Sheets connection will automatically add them to a spreadsheet, keeping you organized in real time.

 

  • Guest photo collection: Stop scouring Instagram and Facebook to find photos that your guests took at the event, have them text their pics to your Burner number. The Dropbox Burner Connection will easily collect them all in one folder for you.

 

  • Access a wedding guest text message hotline: Busy couples don’t have time to answer last-minute questions from guests who forgot the hotel address or when the cocktail hour starts. Use the Evernote Burner Connection to set up a text message hotline so they can simply text “hotel” to your Burner number and receive all the details in response automatically.

 

  • Voicemail “guestbook”: Instead of (or in addition to) a traditional guestbook, ask guests to call your Burner number and leave a voicemail with their well wishes or sharing their favorite story about you as a couple. The SoundCloud Burner Connection will collect your loved ones’ messages on a private SoundCloud playlist, so you can cherish them forever.

About Burner

Burner is a app millions of people use to create temporary phone numbers for various uses. Burner wants to make the phone number “smarter” and more like software, and created Burner Connections as part of this mission – a tool for people to link their Burner numbers to popular apps like Google Sheets, Evernote, SoundCloud and Dropbox to trigger automatic actions. The app is available for iOS and Android .
