Google Introduces New Filter for Kids!

Google Introduces New Filter for Kids!

The Internet can be a place for connecting with old friends, sending out invites, cooking ideas and so much more. But it’s what we don’t want or need that keeps popping up on our screens, and ultimately draws us further away from our intended goal. How easy it is for us to get distracted and end up on sites and spending a ridiculously amount of time on trash.  Thankfully, somehow, we weave our way back to doing what we were actually supposed to do.

But Google is changing all of that for kids! *insert happy dance*

Google will now allow kids  to navigate through tons of material in a safer way using Kiddle. With its new kid friendly outer space theme, kids can still browse the web, but with heavy filtration. So say your kid decides to look up Khole Kardashian, the results will produce… read it here!

 

Feet Protectors…What’s That??

Feet Protectors…What’s That??

Have you ever gone to get a pedicure and forgot your flip flops? Or wanted to take a shower at the gym but there was NO WAY you were going to put your bare feet on the bathroom floor? I recently tried Skindels Foot Protectors and I think I’ve found a solution to my barefoot phobias!

Skindels are kind of like a second skin for your feet! The sole of a shoe but without the shoe! I like to walk barefoot a lot so I tried them out while taking out the trash and to my delight they were awesome! My feet stayed clean and I don’t feel any dirt on them! I also wore them while cleaning the house! I swept the floor and felt no crumbs on the bottom of my feet! As I mentioned before, these are perfect for the gym, walking to your car after a pedi, at the spa or just in and out of the house, especially in the summer! They are simple to use and very adhesive so they don’t come off while you’re walking around! Easy to pack too! In your gym bag, in the car, or in your purse. If you’re really good you can probably even fit it in your back pocket!

Try Skindels!
