Qi Orthopedic Pillow

I don't know how many times I have talked about the pain I suffer in my back and neck. As you can imagine when I find a product that is said to be used to relieve pain I am always excited! Recently I was given the chance to review a product called the Qi Orthopedic Pillow. You may ask "How does QiPillow differ from ordinary pillows?" when researching I found many answers to this and thought I'd check them all out.
  • Support-"QiPillow is far more than an ordinary pillow. It provides scientifically tested orthopedic back support for people of all shapes and sizes." This seems very true :) You can inflate the pillow as big or small as you chose to. My husband, kids and I all have used this pillow and we have all enjoyed it. It is easy to inflate and deflate in just a couple of seconds and can go from person to person. Unless you are a germaphob lol.
  • "The QiPillow has been proven in a third party clinical study to help 91% of back pain sufferers relieve their back stiffness, pain and fatigue, and improve their sitting posture and comfort." Neat fact I suppose :) I can't tell you how many people it helps but it  does help my posture when used behind he back.
  • "Unlike ordinary pillows, QiPillow does not collapse under body weight and will help you to maintain the correct posture." This I found to be true as well. The pillow has very little "give" So if placed under your head or if you are laying with it under your back it will not collapse, keeping you aligned how you intended.

Why do you need to pay attention to their back health?
  • According to the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons, 30% of American adults are afflicted by low back pain. That means if you know three people, one of them is probably in pain.  Americans spend $200 billion a year treating back pain.
  • According to the Workers Safety and Insurance Board, simply sitting – without proper support -- is the leading cause for back pain, second only to heavy weight lifting. 
  • Unsupported sitting is damaging your back each time you sit, at work, at home, in cars. 
The quality of this product is very good. I love the feel of the pillow and with three layers it is really durable. As I mentioned the valve where you inflate and deflate is easy to use, which is very important when you are in pain. The size was really good and was great for all uses. When my back was hurting really bad I deflated it a little and laid on the floor with it under the small of my back. After a few moments it really started to relieve some pain. I really recommend this pillow for everyone not just back pain sufferers. The pillow is 18" x 18" , and comes in camel or sage. The outer cover is made of Mirco-Suede and Engineered in Canada. I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

Jello Hard Candy

Most hard candies call for corn syrup, but since I was out and I have 3 children home I decided to experiment and make something fun! Here is what you need:
2 Cups of Sugar
2 Cups of Water
1 Package Sugar Free Jello
A candy Thermometer

Making candy is a pretty tricky process and trust me I messed up a batch or two getting this to work right.lol Put the sugar and water into the pot and turn on medium whisking well till the sugar is dissolved. Stirring pretty regularly to help the sugar from burning. As the sugar begin to boil turn the heat up to high. Watch your thermometer when the candy reaches 230 pour in the jello continuing to mix. Pour this mixture immediately into a cake pan that is lined with parchment paper of you can rub a little veggie oil in it. The candy will continue to cook as it melts anything over 230 you will be left with a burnt candy that tastes like licorice.lol After you candy is cooled completely turn it out onto a cookie sheet and break apart :O) I like to dust mine …

Rubbermaid Hidden Recycler Review and Giveaway

Recently I was given an amazing opportunity to review a new product by Rubbermaid called the Hidden Recycler. As a family who does a lot to help our planet in many ways this was an exciting opportunity. I loved the fact the Rubbermaid not only made a product that would help my family continue their recycling more easily but they reduced packaging to merely a cardboard sleeve that I could in turn recycle. I quickly opened the package like a kid at Christmas and discovered it would not fit my kitchen cabinets :O( we are in the middle of a kitchen remodel and the layout of my old cabinets would not hold the brackets.  So as I sat down to gloat about not being able to use this amazing product, and I notice two holes on the lid and made a massive dash for the directions. Sure enough I can attach it with screws! (Which ironically took me forever to find in our construction materials) I found the perfect place for it in my laundry room and began putting all of Rubbermaid's claims to the …
