Migraine Awareness ChronicAlly box to relieve, relax and enjoy!

This month I got my Limited Edition Migraine Awareness ChronicAlly box.*  During the month of June, Migraine Awareness month, the box was offered to support Migraine Research Foundation.  I had treated myself to a 3 month subscription for June, July, and August.  My birthday is in August so “Happy Birthday to me!”  It’s been fun to receive a package made for comfort, support and with love.

It included:

A sleep mask to block out the light.

An organic essential oil and electrolyte spray for pain and migraine relief

Headache and migraine relief roller for pressure points

Shower fizzie with lavender, eucalyptus and peppermint

Meditation unscented soy candle

I love it!  I’ll use the products to sleep, take a bath & shower, on the go and at home.  They are great “allies” for my headache and migraine needs! Check out all ChronicAlly has to offer here*

Rockwell Pets Pro review of natural dog shampoo

dog2

Everyone knows I love my dog Lucia!  She is my support animal, best buddy and first child.  I treat her the best because she gives me her best everyday and deserves the same!  That’s why I was thrilled to partner with Rockwell Pets Pro.   I reviewed their non toxic natural dog shampoo on my two favorite dogs with my 4 favorite little ones.  It was a great summer day to wash, rinse and shake.

Although I was given the product to review, my opinions are my own and have not been influenced in any way.  If you buy a product from my recommendation I will receive a small commission for sharing my love of Rockwell Pets Pro.

The creator of Rockwell Pets Pro was tired of having to use normal potentially toxic products for her dog and she found there was nothing natural readily available. Therefore, she created a product line of non toxic products for everyone who is in the same situation.

I had the opportunity to try the “safe nontoxic pet shampoo made from Aloe Vera, Hemp Seed and Argan Kernel as well as Natural Willow, Meadowsweet, Chaparral and Olive Extracts. Without synthetic detergents that could be toxic and harmful specifically for pets with sensitive skin. Re-moisturizes dry skin for better health and well-being.”

The benefits are:

  • MOISTURIZES AND SOOTHES
  • PROMOTES NATURAL SKIN FLORA
  • COMFORTS DRY AND ITCHY SKIN
  • ECO-FRIENDLY
  • MADE IN THE USA
  • 100% SATISFACTION GUARANTEE

 

 

 

I had plenty of small hands and two very willing Golden Retrievers to receive a spa day.  From young (1) to old (12) our dogs enjoyed Rockwell Pets Pro shampoo.

It smelled great

Lathered and cleaned well

And best of all, was a natural wash for my girl who loved the extra attention and rub down.

Thank you Rockwell Pets Pro for making a product safe for my dog!  If you love your dog and want to treat her to nontoxic safe products, this product may be for you!

Axon Optics and Shades for Migraine

FullSizeRenderJune 21st is World Migraine Solidarity Day! It’s a great social media campaign that is meant to raise awareness for Migraine and what better way to express it than in SUNGLASSES?!

With that said, let’s talk about my favorite indoor and outdoor glasses!!!!!  I am an affiliate of Axon Optics because I truly wear their glasses and love to spread the word of how they help.  If you order their glasses I will receive a small compensation for my recommendation.  Thank you!

“Axon Optics has utilized the latest research exploring the pain pathway associated with migraine and photophobia to develop the SpectraShield FL-41 migraine glasses lens. These lenses may help to reduce exposure to certain types of artificial light, particularly blue light and green light, which may exacerbate light sensitivity in those who suffer from migraines.   Both indoor migraine glasses and outdoor migraine sunglasses are an option.” Axon Optics

Wearing my indoor glasses on a partly cloudy dinner date on the patio

 

Personally, I use the indoor glasses almost everyday.  I have both the indoor and outdoor and love them both.  I recommend going to the website and looking what may be best for you.

The reason I love the indoor glasses is the tint.  I am a teacher and mom so I spend a lot of time in fluorescent lights.  I teach in them, go grocery shopping in them and make dinner in my own home with them.  On cloudy days, I wear my indoor glasses outdoors because the glare still hurts my eyes yet regular sunglasses are too dark to wear.  I can not recommend enough Axon Optics Migraine Glasses!!!!

Check me out on: Instagram, facebook, and twitter

I’ll be wearing my Axon Optics for the Shades for Migraine campaign and more.  Remember to participate in the Shades for Migraine campaign and tag me in your sunglasses #shadesformigraine

If you’d like to purchase a pair of Axon Optics, they are generously offering My Migraine Life readers a discount for Migraine Awareness Month!  They are a company that truly cares about migraine sufferers and not just selling a product.  Their customer service is amazing, their return policy is comforting and the founders are people invested in helping!

Axon Optics Migraine Glasses, natural relief

*This post contains affiliate links.  This means if you buy and click from this post I will be compensated by the  affiliate.  This in no way alters my opinion and I only recommend things I use.  I use these often!  I was given a pair to review and have used them often since.

Natural Relief

Before I had children I was a special education teacher.  The years after college; I was teaching, coaching, tutoring, and getting my Master’s degree.  That was all? ha.  At this point my migraines became chronic and pretty much elevated to a new level.  Stress, lack of sleep, noise levels and inconsistent diet triggered me daily.

Along with these were the lights!  I taught in very harsh florescent lighting during the day, coached in a bright gym and sat in front of a computer doing homework or lesson plans.  My eyes were so stressed that I sat in the dark during my free period and had the monitor brightness turned as low as possible.  I didn’t have a smart board at that time but if I had worked with one, I know I would have been pained every time I used it.

This was all before I was given a pair of Axon Optics to review.

I wish so desperately that at that time I had Axon Optics migraine glasses.  They have FL-41 lenses that block  blue-green light which was developed to reduce sensitivity to fluorescent lighting.  They sell a range of products that can fit many eyewear needs.  I found working with the Axon Optics staff easy and simple.  I appreciate this greatly!

I now use them to blog (I’m wearing them now!) and when my photophobia is heightened (which is everywhere!).  I use them everyday.  I wear them making lunches and dinner, doing homework, reading books, doing computer work, going into stores, starting my day (anywhere) and more.  If you see me, I’m wearing them!

Chronically Box review for chronic illness health and beauty

fullsizerender-11

If you haven’t guessed by now, I love to try products that make me feel good?  Why?  Because I suffer and don’t feel well daily.   Why not fill my life with things that make me better?  I like getting mail that’s not bills.  I like using things that aren’t medication.  I like treating myself with love when I often times give so much to others that there is little left for me.

In comes ChronicAlly box…….

I was given a box of “allies” to review.  My opinion has not been influenced in any way. The post contains an affiliate which will notify ChronicAlly of my referral.

What is ChronicAlly box subscription?

fullsizerender-9

 The original Chronic Illness Woman’s Health and Beauty subscription box, ChronicAlly Box, contains lavish and necessary products for the Chronically Chic Woman’s life. Every month, you can expect a treasure box full of 3-6 full sized health and beauty products to make your beauty routine possible in a pinch, with little effort. Health products for your body and mind, giving you the ability to unwind.”

 

There are lots of options to fit your needs.  “ChronicAlly Box contains more products and has a higher value of total products than the ChronicAlly Treat Box. The ChronicAlly Box contains 4-6 full sized products. ChronicAlly Treat Box contains at least 3 full sized/treat sized products, but product quantities vary depending on the cost of each product in the box.”

I really love the idea of treating myself.  Mentally, it’s important.  Physically, it’s important.  Emotionally, it’s important.  I spend so much time and money on my children and feel somewhat guilty spending money on myself sometimes.  Well, this is the year I’m giving up guilt.

My children are better off with a healthy happy mom.  I can’t always be healthy with my migraines, but I can be kinder to myself which helps everyone.  I’m happy when they are happy and they feel the same.  I treat them often, why am I not treating myself?  The boxes are great as gifts to those who need a few “allies.”  So weather it’s for you, a friend, or someone you know who loves to be pampered…this is the box for you (and me!) 

Check out ChronicAlly Box and let me know what you think!
