Christmas in July… it’s never too early to start preparing for the holidays


Photo Source: Dreamstime.com

When it comes to the various holidays and seasons, I am one of the people who are first to complain about how retailers “jump the gun” and start putting out holiday and seasonal products long before they should. Just the other day I noticed our local grocery store already has back to school supplies on their shelves and my beloved Christmas Tree Shop had fall/autumn decor as soon as you walked in the door.

My husband and I have a bet going on. He thinks we’re going to start seeing Halloween candy by August 15th. I think we’ll start seeing the candy by September 1st. I have a feeling he might win.

I have a photo on my personal Facebook page dated August 7, 2016 of Thanksgiving tablecloths. August 7th! That’s insane! I also have a photo dated December 21, 2012 of Valentine’s Day candy. Sigh…

Right now on television there is Christmas in July programming.

There are some occasions where I feel it’s a good idea to get started early, if you can. Christmas is one of them.

When my kids were younger I would pick up gifts for them here and there throughout the year. My husband would wrap them late at night and we’d hide them in our storage room (the kid had no access to our storage room). That way when it was the holiday season we could enjoy the time with our kid and not worry about crowds, long lines and no parking. We also didn’t have to worry about being up until 3 AM Christmas morning wrapping presents.

As silly as it might sound, now is a great time to think about ordering your holiday cards. I now some people opt to use photos of their family in matching holiday pajamas or Santa hats. In the past I have received holiday cards with families on a beach, in the pool and on vacation.

I think that once you have the perfect photo you should get a jump start on your holiday planning and order your cards. That way they are done and out of the way.

I’ve been checking out the online holiday cards at Basic Invite. Not only do they have a really nice assortment to choose from, but they also offer a service that I find extremely helpful. They offer a FREE Address Collection Service. Their service requests your addresses with just three simple steps. You can even share a link, collect addresses, and get FREE envelope printing. I appreciate the envelop printing too. As someone who suffers from Carpal Tunnel, the less writing I have to do that better.

Basic Invite also has real foil in some of their holiday cards lines. The foil is available in gold, silver, and rose. I think foil adds a truly elegant touch to a holiday card. You can’t always find cards embellished with foil in boxed sets or at the card store, and if you do find them, they are expensive.

With over 250 Christmas card and holiday card designs you are sure to find one that appeals to you.

If holiday cards are something you simply do not want to think about right now – especially if you are sweating in the summer heat – Basic Invite has other cards to suit life’s other occasions such as weddings, discount birth announcements, graduation and party invitations, so name a few.

When it comes to sending out a lot of cards I prefer to use a service such as Basic Invite. The last thing I want to do is drive around town, wasting time and gas, to find the perfect card. With Basic Invite I can do it from the comfort of my own home.

One of the biggest things that stands out to me about Basic Invite is that they have almost an unlimited choice when it come to colors. This is especially great for brides-to-be who want to coordinate their cards to their wedding color scheme.

Once you select the design you want you can change the color of each element on the card to over 180 different color options so you can customize the card to suit your “vision” right down to the tiniest detail.

With Basic Invite you can get instant previews online so you can see how the final product is going to look.

Basic Invite also has over 40 different colors for their envelopes. You can make the invitation stand out even more with a matching color envelope. Forget about plain white or cream. You can make your invitation stand out with vibrant color choices.

All of their envelopes are peel and seal so the envelopes can be quickly and securely closed. No more licking gross tasting glue.

Unlike other websites, Basic Invite offers customers the ability to order a printed sample of their actual invitation/card so that they can see how it’s going to look and feel before making a final order. After all, when you are going through all the work to make customize baby shower invitations, you want to make sure they are going to look perfect in every way.

I WISH more companies offered something like this. I have ordered holiday cards and other cards online in the past and there have been a few times that I have been disappointed with the quality. Once the photo was blurry on a card I ordered. It didn’t look that way online but when I saw it in person I realized the quality was not good. Had I had a sample to look at before hand I would have never placed the order.

If you are interested in learning more about Basic Invite, or checking out all the cards, stationery and business supplies, visit BasicInvite.com. You can also check them out on social media – Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest.

Basic Invite also has fun printables you can purchase and download instantly including recipes, words of wisdom, Mad Libs for kids and more.

Are you in the market for invitations? How soon do you order your holiday cards?

A fun, personalized gift idea for Father’s Day (or any holiday/occasion)


I don’t know about you, but when it comes to buying a Father’s Day gift for my father and husband is easier said than done. I cringe every time I think of Father’s Day, their birthdays or Christmas because they are difficult to buy for. I never know what to get them. It actually stresses me out!

My father never, ever expresses any needs or wants. My husband is the same way, but I find it slightly easier to shop for my husband because he’s just a big kid at heart so when it doubt I can buy him a toy (he especially loves ones from his childhood), or something that has to do with his favorite team (the Dallas Cowboys).

Foods and treats are also a great option. After all, who doesn’t appreciate a sweet treat or yummy snack?

You can easily pick up any gift-like food/snack/sweet treat option. I think it makes it more special (and shows that you put more thought in the gift) if it’s personalized in some way.

If you have ever ordered something personalized you know that it can often increase the price of the item and/or it takes longer to have it delivered to you because it takes a while to personalize the item. Sometimes even the personalization can be limited (spaces, what it says…).

There is one gift option that would be great for Father’s Day or just about any holiday/special occasion that can be personalized in any way that you want. You can even add your own drawings and designs for no extra fee.

The item I am referring to is from the Popcorn Factory. It’s called the Decorate Your Own Popcorn Tin.

The Decorate Your Own Popcorn Tin comes in a white metal tin. It also comes with your choice of dry erase markers or permanent markers. You can use the markers to decorate the tin any way you’d like, add special message to the recipient and make it truly a customized/personalized product.

This two gallon tin comes with the trifecta of delicious popcorn flavors – butter, cheese and caramel. I personally love all three flavors.

The Decorate Your Own Popcorn Tin makes a wonderful keepsake long after the popcorn has been enjoyed. Opt for permanent markers if you want the designs or handwritten sentiments to last forever. Or you can use the dry erase markers to re-purpose the tin and use it again and again.

I think this would be a fun gift for a graduate. Friends and family members can adorn it with congratulations and well wishes for the next step in their lives. The recipient can use the tin to hold supplies, accessories, or even more popcorn. If the student is going away to college the tin could hold a lot of items they will need. I personally think this is an AWESOME graduation gift.

I received one of these tins to review. My kids and I decorated it to gift to my husband (their father). The kit we received had the dry erase markers to that we can wipe it off when we are done with it and re-purpose it. Sadly the dry erase markers didn’t come off entirely. I need to get some rubbing alcohol. That should help to remove the stains/marks left behind.

The possibilities are endless with this fun tin of popcorn. I can think of many great occasions that this would make a wonderful gift for;

  • Birthday
  • Anniversary
  • Graduation
  • Wedding
  • Engagement
  • Father’s Day
  • Mother’s Day
  • House Warming
  • Retirement
  • Job Promotion
  • Get Well Soon
  • Just Because

You can also gift this for any holiday and personalize it with your best holiday doodles. I LOVE to doodle so I’d have fun decorating this tin (pumpkins for Halloween, Christmas Trees for Christmas, hearts for Valentine’s Day…).

If you have never had popcorn from The Popcorn Factory, let me tell you, you are missing out on something delicious.

We’re had popcorn from The Popcorn Factory in the past. Their popcorn always tastes freshly popped and very flavorful. They also provide you with a very generous amount. It’s enough to last one person a long time. Even my family of four can enjoy some of the popcorn here and there and it will last for a week or more.

I recommend putting some in a bowl and eat from that instead of directly out of the tin. When you eat out of the tin its easy to eat more than you anticipated you would. It’s all so good that you can’t stop from eating it. Trust me, I know this from personal experience. Ha Ha.

If designing and personalizing your own popcorn tin is not your style, The Popcorn Factory has plenty of other gift ideas for every holiday and occasion. They also have products to suit any budget. In addition they carry non-popcorn items too.

Here are just a FEW examples.

This is PERFECT for my outdoorsy brother!

S’mores flavored popcorn!

This is a GREAT gift idea for a new college student or recent graduate.

I think the Patriotic Kettle Corn (pictured above) would be a welcome treat at your Fourth of July party. It’s a great change of pace from the typical chips & dips and nachos & salsa. Your party guests will appreciate this extra special, colorful holiday treat.

You can learn more about these and other yummy goodies from The Popcorn Factory by visiting them online at ThePopcornFactory.com. You can also check them out on social media. All of their links are found towards the bottom of their website.

Have you ever enjoyed any goodies from The Popcorn Factory? If so, what was your experience with the brand? What product did you enjoy?

Would you gift someone a gift from The Popcorn Factory? What would you use the Decorate Your Own Popcorn Tin for?

Give Dad the Gift of Gourmet for Father’s Day


Father’s Day is nearly upon us (June 18, 2017). Do you know what you’ll be gifting that special man in your life?

I don’t know about you, but I find shopping for a gift for the men in my life to be challenging. I find shopping for woman to be so much easier. Maybe that is because I’m a woman and I know what I like so I figure other woman like the same things.

I’ve always had a hard time shopping for the men in my life. My dad (paternal grandfather who raised me) never showed much interest in anything except baseball. My father (biological) never had a need for anything. If there was something he wanted he’d jut go out and buy it. As for my husband, he’s super hard to shop for. He has a lot of likes, but there are only so many Dallas Cowboys merchandise you can buy, and we already have too many movies and books. Even my son is hard to shop for these days. He’s almost 18 so he’s more into clothing.

If there is one thing many dads do enjoy it’s food. After all, who doesn’t love to eat?

Are you familiar with Omaha Steaks? Omaha Steaks is an online retailer that specializes in gourmet foods and treats.

Omaha Steaks has been around for as long a I can remember. My mom (paternal grandmother who raised me) used to buy from them often. The steaks she bought were strictly for the adults. Us kids were not allowed to enjoy the fine delicacies. It wasn’t until my late teen years that I had my first bite of a steak from Omaha Steaks.

Omaha Steaks has available a delicious bundle that would make the perfect gift for the hard to shop for man in your life. It’s called the Father’s Day T-Bone Gift Package. The package includes:

  • 30 oz. T-Bone
  • Gourmet Jumbo Franks
  • Potatoes Au Gratin
  • New York Cheesecake
  • 1 oz. Steak Seasoning
  • Omaha Steaks Sliders

Omaha Steaks was kind enough to send me the package to review.

I’ve never had a t-bone steak before. I have seen photos on the Internet and in magazines, but I have never tried one personally. WOW!!! Is it HUGE! I have never seen a steak so big and thick before.

We have not made the t-bone steak… yet. My husband wants to barbecue it on the grill. Since we are not allowed to have barbecues where we live (we live in a condo complex), we need to “borrow” someone else’s barbecue. As it so happens we’re going to a family members home in a few weeks and they have a barbecue. They have already told us that they have no problem tossing the t-bone steak on the grill along with the hamburger and hot dogs they plan on making.

In the mean time, I had no problem digging into the other goodies that came with the Father’s Day package.

I love cheesecake. It’s one of my favorite treats. The cheesecake that came with this package was out-of-this-world delicious. It was so creamy, just the way I like it.

The cheesecake was a nice size too. It was enough for my whole family to enjoy a slice withe plenty left over for seconds.

We haven’t made the hot dogs yet. We are saving those for the barbecue we’ll be attending in a few weeks. We are going to put them along side the t-bone steak when we cook it.

I’ve had Omaha Steaks hot dogs before. They taste fresh, unlike the kind you buy at the grocery store. They taste more like something you’d find in an expensive, fancy restaurant. They don’t taste like your average hot dogs. I also find them to be more meaty (thick, hearty) than regular hot dogs.

I prepared the Potatoes Au Gratin one night for dinner. My apologies for not having a picture of them. I was too involved into eating that I neglected to snap some photos.

When I make Potatoes Au Gratin I used a boxed mix with dried potatoes and dry ingredients (you mostly add water). Needless to say the Omaha Steaks Potatoes Au Gratin are much better than the store bought kind. The Omaha Steaks Potatoes Au Gratin tasted like someone had made them from scratch. Yummy!!!!

This package easily feeds a family of four. The package it’s self costs $59.99 which breaks down to approximately $15 per person. If you eat out often you know that it’s about the average price of a meal. In fact, when we eat out it often costs us more when you factor in beverages, appetizers and/or desserts.

If T-bone Steak is not your father’s/husband’s favorite cut of meat, that is OK. Omaha Steaks has plenty of other yummy bundles to choose from including the Father’s Day Family Feast and the Ultimate Ribeye Father’s Day package.

Omaha Steaks also carries poultry, seafood, appetizers, wine and dessert. They have a lot to offer including other bundles and items you can purchase individually.

If you’d like to learn more visit OmahaSteaks.com. You can also find the brand on social media. All of those links are found on the bottom left of their website.

Have you ever purchased from Omaha Steaks before? If so, did you have a positive experience?

Do you think that special man in your life would appreciate any of these special Father’s Day packages? If so, which one?

Feel free to share your thoughts. I always love to hear from readers.

Celebrate Mother’s Day with National Geographic & Enter to Win Great Prizes!


Can you believe that Mother’s Day is just a few days away? I wonder what my kids are going to do for me. I hope its pancakes or French toast for breakfast.

I don’t expect any gifts from my kids. Our son just got his first job and hasn’t started yet, so he doesn’t have a dime to his name. Our daughter is a college student and doesn’t make that much either.

Honestly, I don’t need “things” for Mother’s Day. I’m happy with breakfast or a handmade card.

Have you heard of Magic Jigsaw Puzzles? Magic Jigsaw Puzzles is an app available for both iOS and Android devices. It’s a full service game that includes a collection of more than 20,000 virtual jigsaw puzzles. The puzzles are perfectly organized in a user friend interface.

What does Magic Jigsaw Puzzles have to do with Mother’s Day? That is a great question.

Magic Jigsaw Puzzles has partnered with National Geographic in a special Mother’s Day giveaway. The prize includes a branded mug, t-shirt, a gorgeous coffee table book, branded journal and pen set, a digital subscription to Nat Geo Magazine and 50,000 coins than can be used with the Magic Puzzles app.

Entering the sweepstakes is very easy. Simple solve any of their Nat Geo WILD Mother’s Day puzzles and then share it on your Facebook page with your family and friends. Make sure you tag the Magic Jigsaw Puzzles’ community page (@Magic.Puzzles.Community on Facebook) as well.

I loved doing puzzles when I was a child. Back in the day the puzzles were made out of wood (I did have a few cardboard ones). In fact I still have several of my wooden puzzles from my youth. One day I plan on gluing the pieces in place and using them as artwork on the wall. I think that would be fun to do.

I still enjoy doing puzzles, I just don’t have the time like I used to. That is why I like the Magic Jigsaw Puzzle app. I can take puzzles with me to enjoy where ever I go – even during my lunch break at work. You can also enjoy your Magic Jigsaw Puzzles between devices.

Magic Jigsaw Puzzles is also available in 10 languages and can be enjoyed around the globe. If you travel a lot for work (or for fun) you can enjoy puzzles where ever you go. Magic Jigsaw Puzzles has 27 million members with 4 million users who use the app actively throughout the month. The app is also one of the top 100 bestselling apps.

You can even play on your computer.

Unlike other apps, Magic Jigsaw Puzzles is constantly updating their puzzle collection with high definition photos.

There are five difficulty levels which means this app is fun for young and old alike. The difficulty level refers to the number of pieces it takes to solve the puzzle. The fewer the pieces the easier it is to complete. I prefer easier puzzles when I am using the app on my lunch break since I don’t have a lot of time. I find a quick puzzle or two to be very relaxing.

Kids and parents can enjoy the same puzzle. All you need to do is change the difficulty level.

I would much rather have my young child enjoying putting together a puzzle then playing a violent or mindless game. Puzzles can be educational too. They help with cognitive skills, problem solving as well as global (big picture) and analytic (details) aspects of learning.

Puzzles are great for adults too. As you know, it’s important to give your brain a “mental workout” on a regular basis. It keeps your mind healthy. Keeping your brain active is important to keep it functioning well.

I enjoy the available images for the puzzles. I especially love the landscape ones and the puzzles featuring animals. And thanks to Nat Geo there are plenty of gorgeous puzzles.

You can even make puzzles out of your own photos! That is one of my most favorite features. Upload your photos and turn them into puzzles. What a wonderful idea. I could imagine uploading a photo of the grandchildren to create a puzzle for grandma and grandpa to enjoy putting together. With Mother’s Day coming up it would be fun to create a puzzle using mom’s favorite photo of her children or her family.

You can share your completed puzzles with family and friends as well as with the Magic Jigsaw Puzzles’ community. They even have tournaments that you can complete in.

If you are interested in learning more about Magic Jigsaw Puzzles you can check it out here. You can also visit them on social media – Facebook and Twitter.

Don’t forget to enter the sweepstakes for your chance to win fun prizes!

Are you a fan of doing puzzles? Do you think you’ll check out the Magic Jigsaw Puzzles app?

Honor Mom This Mother’s Day with Teleflora’s Handmade Bouquets


My mom and me.

Mother’s Day is this coming weekend. It seems like only yesterday we were celebrating the start of a new year. Now we’re celebrating mom (and those other special ladies in your life), and soon we’ll be celebrating the official start to summer.Time sure does fly.

Sadly, my mom passed away 14 years ago this upcoming December. I wish she was still around so I could thank her for all those times she was there for me. She was there for me through thick and thin, through sickness and good healthy, happiness and sadness, love and loss.

I miss her. I miss her terribly. I wish there was a way I could see her, even for just a moment, to thank her for all that she did for me. Most especially because I was not her biological child (biologically speaking she was my paternal grandmother, but she raised me, so she’s always been “mom” to me).

Don’t let another day go by without telling your mom, or that other special woman in your life, “thank you” for all that she does.

I’d like to think that I am a lot like my mom as far as loving and caring for my family.

Honoring moms everywhere this Mother’s Day, a new advertisement from Teleflora celebrates everything that makes mom so special, and commemorates our connection to her by illuminating all of the inimitable ways that we are “Just Like Her.”

Check out the brief video.


Teleflora’s “Just Like Her” video ad gives us a moment to thank mom for her strength, determination, courage, perseverance, and infinite love that inspires us every day through life’s best and most challenging moments.

Leading up to Mother’s Day (May 14, 2017), Teleflora would like to encourage moms, sons and daughters everywhere to share their personal reflections about their mom at #ImJustLikeHer. Share your thoughts on social media and use that hashtag, and if possible, tag Teleflora. They would love to read your personal reflections. You can also include the hashtag #Teleflora too.

Mother’s Day is a wonderful opportunity to give that special lady in your life a beautiful gift. Flowers are always a wonderful option. Who doesn’t love a beautiful bouquet of gorgeous, colorful flowers?

Teleflora has two new options this Mother’s Day (along with many other beautiful Mother’s Day arrangements).

Teleflora’s Sparkle and Shine Bouquet (Available on Teleflora.com for $59.95)

Chic and modern, just like mom. This show-stopping bouquet is a perfect reflection of her effervescent beauty; inside and out. Gorgeous pink roses, fragrant white Asiatic lilies and lavender look oh-so-lovely in this one-of-a-kind purple metallic glazed vase with sparkling rhinestones that is sure to dazzle her.

Teleflora’s Dancing Violets Bouquet (Available on Teleflora.com for $39.95)

Just like mom, handmade bouquets light up a room… so make her heart dance with this fun and pleasing purple and white bouquet filled with lavender and white daisy spray chrysanthemums, purple carnations, and a medley of other floral accents. This beautiful floral arrangement is displayed within a purple glass cube vase with a pretty pressed violet design.

Here are a few more options. Teleflora has dozens of beautiful arrangements to choose from.

Teleflora was kind enough to send me their Dancing Violets arrangement to review.

I’ve received a lot of flowers over the years. I would have to say that this one was one of the more fragrant ones that I’ve received in a long time. Even before I unpackaged the arrangement I could smell it. The lovely scent lingered around our dining room (where I kept the flowers – on top of our dining room table) for a few days. It was very nice.

This bouquet features lavender roses, purple carnations, lavender and white daisy spray chrysanthemums, bupleurum, spiral eucalyptus, and leatherleaf fern. The flowers go perfectly with the delicate, square purple vase.

I love the vase because it can be repurposed after the flowers are gone. You can reuse it as a vase, or use it as a container. I was thinking of using this to house my make up. It’s much prettier than the rectangle plastic box my make up is currently sitting in.

The vase is a clear glass with purple violets on it. The white part (background) is a white, plastic insert that the flowers are sitting in. I suppose you could wash that out and reuse that too, but I don’t plan to use that part.

Teleflora has so many more beautiful arrangements for life’s moments (get well, sympathy, birthday, anniversaries…) as well as holidays (Mother’s Day, Valentine’s Day, Christmas…). You can even include little extras with many of the arrangements including premium vases, Mylar balloon, chocolates and/or an adorable plush teddy bear.

If you would like to see what Teleflora has to offer for Mother’s Day (or any other holiday/life event) visit Teleflora.com. You can also find the brand on social media. All of their links are found on the bottom of their website.

Don’t forget to share your loving thoughts about your mom on social media and tag Teleflora and/our use the hashtags #Teleflora and #ImJustLikeHer.

Are you planning on sending flowers to that special lady in your life?

Have you ever purchased floral arrangements or bouquets from Teleflora?

Feel free to share your thoughts, or simply give a “shout out” to your mom in the comments section of this post. I always love to hear from readers.

Take your desk chair to the next level with Autonomous ErgoChair


As a blogger I spend A LOT of time sitting at my desk. I use a laptop, but I am more comfortable using it at my desk, perched on top of a “stand” than I am trying to use it on my lap while seated on the couch.

I also need to use an actual “mouse” and not the pad on my laptop. I guess I prefer things “old school,” as if I was using a desktop and not a laptop.

Over the years I have developed Carpal Tunnel in my right wrist due to be on the computer too much and not sitting properly while at the computer. I never used the appropriate accessories (wrist rest, ergonomic mouse…) to prevent myself from developing Carpal Tunnel.

My desk chair has never been correct from an ergonomic standpoint either. I had one of those $29.99-type desk chairs that you get from Walmart or Target. It was cheap and it served it’s purpose.

My old chair sits by the window so our cats have a comfy “window seat.”

I never, ever sat correctly in that chair. I always found myself sitting all the way toward the front of the chair and leaning over my desk. I never found it comfortable to sit with my back up against the backrest. It didn’t feel “natural” to me to sit that way.

Right now I am dealing with several physical ailments, including back issues. I often wonder if the way I set, both at home and at work, has anything to do with that – even in the slightest way.

Have you seen advertisements for the desk that you use while standing up? The first time I saw one I thought it was very strange and I didn’t think it would be comfortable at all. But after I learned more about them, and knowing how sitting for too long is not good for you, I think it’s a wonderful idea. If I had more room in my home I would consider getting one of those desks.

It’s called a SmartDesk and it’s made by a company called Autonomous.

The more I learn about the SmartDesk the more I think it’s an awesome idea. Right now I have to force myself to take breaks, get up and walk around a bit because sitting for too long not only aggravates the issues I’m already having with my back and leg, but it’s been shown that sitting at a desk too long is not the best for your overall health. Sitting too long can cause posture problems, back problems, problems with your hips and more. Don’t believe me? Google “sitting too long” and check out all the horrible things that could happen.

I also think having the ability to stand can also increase productivity. I cannot tell you how many time I have dosed off while at my desk. I have literally fallen asleep! If I was standing that most likely wouldn’t happen.

Autonomous makes a variety of products to help you work healthier, work better and work smarter.

Autonomous was kind enough to send me one of their ErgoChairs to review.

This is not your standard desk chair. It looks more like something a CEO or President of a major corporation would sit in. From a visual standpoint its a beautiful chair.

Notice how you can see through the chair? This allows for air to move freely around you to prevent you from getting overheated.

I was thrilled when the chair arrived and I couldn’t wait for my husband to put it together. It took him under a half hour to put the chair together. The company even made it easy but packaging all the pieces (screws and such) in a way that they were easy to find. They even included one of those little wrenches so that you didn’t need to dig through your toolbox to find what you needed.

The chair has A LOT of “bells and whistles.”

Molded foam seat slides forwards and backwards, raises and lowers

Customizable tilt tension to perfectly balance your weight, seat position can be locked or unlocked for flexibility or maximum support

Seat and back tilt tension

Wide, five-wheel base for mobility and stability during multipurpose use

3D armrests move left to right, up and down, and forwards to backwards for the perfect resting position

Adjustable Lumbar Support meets your back where you most need support

Wide, curved headrest raises, lowers and tilts up to 45 degrees back

Aerated back conforms to your unique shape, supporting your spine while preventing heat build-up.

Ergonomically designed, ErgoChair distributes your weight evenly.

Carefully selected materials, world-class manufacturing and rigorous testing.

Almost every aspect of this chair can be customized to fit your personal needs or comfort. The chairs is easily adjustable so the next person who sits at the chair can change it to fit them. My kids use my desk a lot for homework and often change the set up on my desk chair. Our son is much taller than me, so he adjusts almost every aspect of my desk chair. I don’t mind because I can easily move things back to the way they are most comfortable for me.

I will admit that it took me a while to get used to this chair. I was so used to sitting towards the front of the chair that it was hard for me to get used to sitting all the way in the chair with my back up against the back of the chair. I still find myself sitting forward in the chair out of habit, but as soon a I catch myself doing that I push my body back in the chair so that my back is resting on the back rest.

I actually find it more comfortable to sit all the way back in this chair. Like I mentioned above, I still catch myself sitting in it the wrong way, but that is just out of habit. I’m sure in time I’ll get used to sitting in it the proper way.

One of my favorite features of this chair is the adjustable lumbar support. It’s a pillow-like piece in the back of the chair that you can adjust up or down to where you want it to be on your back. I have back, hip and knee problems. ANY relief/support I can get in those problem areas is a good thing.

I also like that the headrest adjusts so it fits my head perfectly.

The chair even tilts back a bit. Sometimes when I have been sitting at the computer for a long time I like to stretch back a bit, just for a few minutes, and close my eyes. This chair allows me to tilt back a bit while the headrest supports my head.

Did I mention that the chair is super comfy too? Even our cats want to sleep on it. I have to put book on it to keep them off of it otherwise it will be covered with hair.

The chair is a bit more pricey than other chairs, but sometimes it pays to spend a little more for a quality product, especially one that was built with your comfort in mind.

The Autonomous EroChair is available in six different colors – black, black and white, white, green, red and blue.

Check out this brief video to learn more about this chair.


If you are in the market for a new chair for your desk, or you feel like you need to take your chair to the next level, check out the  Autonomous EroChair. It’s like the “Rolls Royce” of chairs.
