Moroccan Oil: Great Products to Revamp Your Hair!

Moroccan oil is a great new hair product out that will hydrate, volumize and repair your hair. With a variety of products designed specifically for your hair, you’ll never want to try anything else!

My hair stylist used it on my hair about two months ago, and I fell in love with it. I use the intense hydrating mask at least once a week to give my hair the healthy shiny look it deserves. It’s a deep conditioning that only has to be left on for about ten minutes. The frizz control spray is also a product that I personally use when the humidity is appalling.

Each of the products Moroccan Oil has produced is will help with any hair slump you arein.  Whether you have fine and thin hair or a thick and course mane, Moroccan oil has the right formula created to make your hair look great! Ask your stylist about these products or visit their website athttp://moroccanoil.com/en_US/products.

A Nifty Device to Improve Your Office Posture

How many times have your grandmother and mother said, “Sit up straight?” We all know perfect posture is good for us, but its not always easy or that comfortable for long days at the office. Enter Backjoy, a butt seat we recently discovered that truly saves the day for your spine!

We fell in love with Backjoy at a recent conference in Chicago, and have used them in the office ever since! The plastic seat molded for your butt comfortably tilts your hips upright while sitting on it. It instantly improves your posture and takes the pressure off of your tailbone, making the seat super ideal for long term sitting at the office, on the plane, or in the car.

Whether you are sitting at work, Tweeting at home or watching your favorite trash TV show, you might find yourself hunched over.... maybe even while you read this post. It is difficult to realize your sitting habits until your back starts to hurt, and you have watched a Kardashian marathon. Backjoy keeps your spine in check so you never feel the pain to begin with.The Backjoy is very comfortable, can hold up to 300 pounds and will work in any seat, so don’t fret about eating those Krispy Kreme Donuts for breakfast. There's also a mini version for those under 90 pounds.

The Backjoy is portable and has ties to attach it to your suitcase or inside your GRACESHIP bag, making those long haul flights or weekend road trips a little easier to bare.

The company behind this clever device for your tush also provides numerous other products to help improve your posture while you sleep, stand and kneel. There is a Backjoy pillow, which aligns the head, neck and shoulders. There are foot inserts for the working woman on the go, allowing you to avoid sharp pain in those stilettos. And they also create Kneelers which make your home cleaning and gardening pain free.

We think excellent posture is just one step closer to taking over the world, gracefully. Get your Backjoy on http://backjoy.com/, your back will thank you!

Prezi, the 3D Alternative to PowerPoint

 

Wanna wow your boss with your next presentation? Prezi is a presentation software that we think blows PowerPoint out of the water! Prezi allows you to make rockstar slideshows in a breeze.

Prezi makes it easy to explore and share ideas on a virtual canvas. Once you start using Prezi you’ll never present with PowerPoint again!

One thing that makes Prezi so unique is its “Zooming User Interface” (ZUI). This allows users to create a presentation in a non-linear fashion, as opposed to PowerPoint where one slide comes after another.  Prezi is based online, so you can access it anywhere, making it more convenient than PowerPoint. As long as you have a mobile device and the internet you can access your Prezi. You can also save it to a flash drive or other devices.

Prezi can be used for any number of things: business conferences, product showcases, education, or collaborative designs! The best part is that Prezi can be used absolutely free of charge and is compatible with Mac and PC, so anyone can use it.

Check out their website www.prezi.com and start using this great business tool! Go to http://prezi.com/learn/grouping-and-layering/ and learn how to optimize your Prezi to make it more appealing and organized!
