Palm: A Tiny Phone to Keep you from Using Your Phone
This is the cutest little phone ever, it’s a baby Android from a San Francisco start-up who bought the rights to the Palm name. And for 2020, don’t we all want to try and curb our obsession with holding our phones all the time?
Basketball superstar Steph Curry has lent his name to this new concept, here is how the Verge described it.
“The Palm phone is a device that you can add on to your Verizon plan, which shares your phone number. It’s a phone designed for you to use on the weekends, when you’re going out for the evening, or just generally when you want to be a little less distracted by your big phone with all its apps. That said, it runs a full version of Android 8.1 and all the apps from the Google Play Store.”
The little phone, which is about the size of a credit card, but thicker, has a setting called “Life Mode,” where you can not only turn off notifications, but you turn off the device’s radios. This ensures an absolutely unbreakable guarantee that you won’t be disturbed by anything.
This phone is sold as an add-on to an existing Verizon Mobile phone package. It can also be purchased as a primary phone. The tiny Palm phone can also be purchased “unlocked” on the Palm website: www.palm.com, making it compatible with most U.S. carriers.
Palm Tiny Phone for Verizon $199-$349

Eclipse Offers Sun Protection with this Cute Women’s Hoodie Shirt
Here’s a new must-have for the beach, boating or walking your favorite mountain trails yet stylish enough to wear around town. The difference is in the fabric.
The activated particles in Cocona™/37.5™ fabric increase the surface area by up to 800%. The greater surface area results in outstanding evaporative cooling and UV protection. The climate control fabric retains warmth if you start cooling down or releases warmth if your core body temperature starts to rise. The protection never washes out. In Aqua, Plum or Sienna.
Heartstraws: A Sustainable Way to Drink
Heartstraws Pouch Sets: These self-sufficient glass straws allow you to never be without a straw on the go. These are your key to helping the planet one less plastic straw at a time. They also come in sustainable packaging and have a matching cloth carrying case incorporating two pockets one for your cleaning device and the other for your handy-dandy handmade glass straw.
Not only are these straws reusable, but also recyclable. They are very durable and can handle up to 175lbf, which is pretty impressive. The reason that glass straws are the way to go is that they do not react to acidity the way metal or silicone do and they do not conduct heat, making them versatile for any beverage.
There are many options to choose from and it allows the consumer to find which straw fits best to their fit and fun lifestyle choices.
Use Sonic Soak for a Really Effective Clean on the Go
The Sonic Soak is a stain removing device that avoids scrubbing and pilling, you just soap up your garment, put it in a pail of water, turn on the Super Soak and walk away. We were very impressed with how well this powerful device was able to clean a variety of different garments. Don’t be confused by knock-0ffs you might find on certain shopping sites, ahem!
There are multiple settings on the plugin device to tell you how many seconds it will run for. My only question is that to travel with this slightly heavy device might make my bag too heavy. This small yet hefty machine is worth the investment.
Sonic Soak $149.00
Hero Grill Brings the BBQ on the Road
The Hero Grill is quite small and useful for outdoor gatherings. You can take this packable grill in the car with you and bring it to the local park for a cookout. It functions like a normal grill, but briefcase size.
This allows versatility; however, my only hang-up is the price of the replacement charcoal bins which must be bought from HERO themselves in order to have a proper fit. Although the charcoal is plant-based and clean in a sustainable mentality, two replacement pans of charcoal, for a single-use each is $20. That is $10 per use, it is a decision to make between convenience and cost.
HERO Grill $135.95
