My Futur-e-Stick is the Ultimate Universal Tablet Selfie Stick


   Have you been a part of the latest of trend of taking selfies? Have you been sucked into the world of social medic, Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, and so many others that are out there? So have I. And I am now entering the world of the tablet selfie stick too.

   Future-e-stick has an incredible universal tablet stick that allows for you to stick not only your tablet, but phones, GPS systems, and even your camera if light enough. The swivel piece allows for you to turn your tablet (or other device) in the correct position and then snap away those photos or video.

   You are able to have the option to have the USB attachment also. This allows for you to store battery power and charge up your device when the battery begins to die. You just take it out of the bottom of the future-e-stick, then replace it with a plastic cap and continue on. The sticky piece that holds your tablet will lose its sticky if you leave the protective plastic covering off when not in use. Make sure to take care of of your Futur-e-stick to keep it lasting for a long time.

   If you are interested in checking out the fun and innovative tablet selfie stick, take a look at I think it is worth having to take those amazing photos with your tablet and not just your phones.

I Took the #EcoBoost15 Challenge Presented by Ford Motor Company

    There is some amazing things I want to share with you about my Mother's Day weekend. I figured it was time to do something a little different this year since I am almost 29 (shhhhhh don't tell anyone), so I took my mom over four hours away driving time to join the #EcoBoost15 Challenge at the Emerald Downs Raceway located in Auburn, Washington. I just enjoy the scenic drive so much. The Pacific Northwest is a place unlike any other, and a place I am proud to call home. Continuing on, I thought now was the best time to take the #EcoBoost15 Challenge since I am working very hard to get her out of the vehicle she currently has, and into the Ford Edge.

     I registered for this event the minute I received the email from Ford. As many of you already know, I am a huge supporter and fan of Ford Motor Company and the huge leaps and bounds that they are achieving in making the vehicles they offer much more eco-friendly, sustainable, and more comfortable to ride in and drive. I have had the pleasure of joining Ford on some pretty fantastic adventures and opportunities to learn about Ford and the vehicles they offer and that are on the market. March of this year, I went on an incredible journey to Arizona to test drive the all the 2015 Ford Edge Sport and Titanium. I fell in love with this SUV. I am not the SUV car fan most often, but this Edge changed my mind. I felt it important to share that with you my readers, and of course my family. Since then, I have been waiting to get my mom into the Edge to feel the joy I felt. She does enjoy the SUV, and so I knew she would fall in love like I had.

The #EcoBoost15 Challenge had some pretty neat interactive activities to do and learn from. Our #EcoBoost15 Challenge began with the ST Reaction Time Challenge. Of course, I had to take some video footage of Mom racing in the Ford Focus. Then It was my turn, and I was able to get a video of me doing the ST Reaction Time Challenge. What an adrenaline rush that was for us. Only thing that was rough on me was the clutch. With new cars, you have a stiffer clutch. Which had my leg shaking like I have never driven a manual before.

Then we decided to go and head to the Mustangs for the Mustang Challenge to get in a little drifting and tire squealing. They were offering a manual, and an automatic Mustang to drive. Since the line for the manual was a little long, we took the automatic cars for a spin. Now let me just say, that two laps was not enough for me to get out all the built up need for speed I have running through my veins. However, the experience was beyond incredible. We had such a rush that it is a memory that Mom and I will share for a lifetime. She has never had an experience like a FORD experience, and it is one for the record books for Mother's Day, and for my special and wonderful mother. I also took a video of Mom going around the track.

The final challenge we decided to take was the EcoBoost Challenge with the side-by-side comparison of Ford vehicles and their competition vehicles. There was the Ford F150 vs. Chevy Silverado. Hands down the Ford F150 won with handling, reaction, and comfort. Next was the Ford Escape vs. the Forester. The Ford Escape won with Mom, however she did say that both were not really for her. Finally, we had the Ford Edge vs. Outback. This was the time in the challenge I had been waiting for ever since I left Arizona. My mom was in the 2015 Ford Edge, and is beyond in love. She was so giddy and like a kid in a candy store inside the Edge. It has everything and more she looks for in her SUV, and then some. Comfort, has enough seats and room, taller vehicle to see higher off the ground. the added bonuses of the Edge are beyond her list. The assist drive, park, cameras, navigation system, and is eco-friendly.

The EcoBoost Challenge 2015 with Ford was a complete success for the Green Travel Gurl in Washington. We have satisfied Mother, and she is now looking into purchasing the Ford Edge! Way to go Ford, and thank you for allowing me to give my mother an incredible experience to brag about and remember for a lifetime.  Go and take a look at all the stuff Ford is doing at WWW.FORD.COM.


I will be posting links to my videos once uploaded to YouTube. Thank you for checking out my blog post!

Learn How to Heal Your Body Through Body Cognition


   It is important to take care of your body. We only have one in our lifetime and to let it go to waste is something not worth doing as we age and feel the effects of aging on our bodies.

     The electronic book Body Cognition: The Method, is a book worth reading. Teaching the correct ways of movement of our bodies if beneficial mentally and physically. I was able to find a deep relaxation with the insights of this book. I learned much more about my body than I was aware of already.

"Since the development of "Body Cognition" in the 1960s and 1970s, thousands of people have experienced it. However, when we ask: What is "Body Cognition", some of the answers are given in the negative form: this is not gymnastics in the usual sense; this is not a treatment for back pains only, and so on. How, then, can we define the "Body Cognition" method: education for a proper body movement? Training and preparing the body? Healthy gymnastics? These are titles which indicate several aspects of the method. The fundamental assumption of "Body Cognition" is that the right movement is beneficial to our physical and mental well-being and learning the right movement can considerably facilitate the solution of a long series of prevalent bodily problems. "

   If you are wanting to learn how to help your body by learning techniques of how to do so, then go take a look at

   I believe self health is very important. We have so many unhealthy environmental factors, taking care of our bodies if our job. No one else will do it for us.

Get to learning!

Melatonin is a Natural Sleep Aid

    I have been trying out Maxabsorb Melatonin that helps aid with sleep. I apply at night before bedtime, and it is supposed to help me fall asleep.

    I suffer from insomnia, and makes sleep very hard for me to get to sleep and stay asleep. I have to be honest and say that I did not notice much of a difference using this product. I believe insomnia is the reason why.

   So I then asked my 13 year old son if he was interested in trying it out for me to see if it helps him fall asleep. He stays asleep once he has fallen asleep, but says sometimes it is hard for him to fall asleep. He was happy to try it. (He loves his asleep)

   He has been trying it for about two weeks now, and says it has truly helped him fall asleep. He uses it about 30 minutes before bedtime and by that time,  he is more than ready to get into bed. He does not wake up feeling extra tired, or like he spent half the night trying to fall asleep.

   I personally believe that this product works, just did not for me with having insomnia to the degree I do. If you are interested in giving Vita Sciences Maxabsorb Melatonin for yourself, take a look at Some products are a hit and miss. They work for me, and might not for you. Consider that when thinking about giving it a try.
