Battle Fall Allergies With An Airfree Air Purifier So You Can Breathe Again

This is the official start of Autumn and for some of us, it is the start of those pesky seasonal allergies. My younger daughter has been an allergy sufferer since she was in elementary school. A month ago she was complaining of a sore throat and headache that only happened while she was at home. When she would leave to go to school, it would go away. We went through her room and tried to come up with anything that she could potentially be allergic to. We could not figure it and it became frustrating for her to go through this for so many weeks. We received an Airfree air purifier for review and I figured her room was the ideal place to test it out. Of course I had no real expectations that an air purifier would be an overnight remedy, but at this point it was worth a shot.


The Airfree air purifier is much different from units we have had in the past. This one required no installation of a filter and to my surprise, it is filter-less. All you have to do is plug it in and you're done. I set it up in her room in the late morning and she slept with it the first night. I asked her the next day how her throat was feeling and and she was shocked to feel normal again-- NO pain or irritation! I was in disbelief and thought maybe it was a coincidence. We continued to monitor how she was feeling for more than a week and she was all better. Looks like she got the perfect cure for her chronic sore throat and headache.

How Airfree works:
Airfree Onix 3000 Air purifier recommended for rooms up to 650 sq ft.
Airfree is the natural solution to asthma, respiratory allergies and mold. Eliminates dust mites, bacteria, fungi, virus, pollen, allergens of domestic animals and other microorganisms from the air. Their TSS ™ technology does not emit hazardous components such as ions, UV light and ozone.

Our thoughts:
We were most impressed that no filter or maintenance is required. The old units we had would end up be costly due to filter replacements as well as cleaning. With Airfree all of that is eliminated. We also love that it is completely silent and you can set the night light to any level of brightness desired or leave if off completely. It does emit a small amount of heat from the unit, but that has been no problem at all. The bottom line is that is has improved our daughter's health tremendously and we would recommend this product to anyone. It works!

Where to buy:
You can purchase Airfree air purifiers from Amazon, The Home Depot, Bed Bath & Beyond, Sharper Image, Walmart, and more. The unit we have is the Airfree Onix and retails for $299. I know it seems expensive, but it is SO worth it! You can't put a price tag on your family's health. Be sure to follow Airfree on Facebook and Twitter for product promotions and updates.

I received a product sample in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are 100% my own as always.

Tips to Fight Back During Hunger Action Month


  1. Advocate. Use your voice to spread the word about hunger in your community. Social media has made this quite easy to do. Alert your online community that we are in the midst of Hunger Action Month and about the plight of the hungry in their own backyards. Share quotes and statistics about hunger and ask them to support their local hunger relief organization.
  2. Volunteer. Most food banks, pantries and soup kitchens rely on volunteers to make their operations work. Volunteers can sort donations, stock shelves and help with distribution. Volunteers can also frequently help from home in the form of virtual volunteering. Contact your local hunger relief organization to see if you can utilize your specific skills to help them with business operations like accounting, marketing, website and administration.
  3. Run a food drive. You can really increase your impact by organizing your own food drive. Food drives run in conjunction with your company, school, church or group tend to have the best results. And, always add an online component to your traditional drive (or run your online drive alone). Use YouGiveGoods.com to run an online drive for your local food pantry. The online drive service is free to use, easy to share on social media, and simple for supporters to shop online for brand-new most-needed food items which are shipped directly to the pantry at the close of the drive.
  4. Donate money. Hunger relief organizations need monetary donations to operate. Any size donation will be welcomed.
  5. Donate food. Don't just walk by the donation bin at your school, store or company. Make a point to donate food whenever the opportunity arises.

Get Accessorized This Fall With JORD Wood Watches

Today's post is sponsored by JORD Wood Watches 


I seriously feel like the Summer has slipped on by and we are all getting prepped for Fall. I am already planning to get ahead on organizing my closet and clothing drawers. Since I stay at home all day, my wardrobe takes the back seat. I like to go through my husband's things first and make a running list of what he may need for the change of seasons. Thankfully, Fall is usually easiest to dress for and we mostly just add some accessories like new ties, belts, or cuff links. This Fall, my husband was lucky to receive a new JORD wood watch to add some flair to his wardrobe.


He has become very obsessed interested in wrist watches and JORD offers a unique twist on ordinary watches. Their watch bands are crafted out of various types and finishes of quality wood that really makes a statement. Each time my husband sports his wood watch, people stare and ask questions. The latest one in his new collection is from the Delmar Series in Dark Sandalwood & Blue Carbon.


This one is so masculine yet elegant looking and can be easily worn with casual attire, as well as his best business suits. You can't go wrong with a cool watch that can be paired with most outfits. This particular timepiece is available in a range of colors as well. At only $149, it is a great, affordable choice.


He is thrilled to break out his favorite sport coats this Fall and looks forward to showing off his new wrist candy. JORD Watches are not just for the fellas though. They have some beautiful selections in their women's collections. I noticed the trend of stacking watches and I really like it! Some of the wood watch bands and faces come in girlish hues like purple and plum. The watch design overall has a more feminine look. They have price points to suit your budget, starting as low as $129.

My husband is looking at some of the other colors and finishes in the Delmar Series. He feels like this style suits him well. I really like them too, but he will have to wait in line. I'm next up for a JORD Women's watch. These unique wrist watches would make the perfect give for any occasion or even as a "just because" gift. It's also not too early to start thinking about the upcoming holidays. Just like Summer breezed by, so will the next few months!


Ordering your new timepiece is easy, but choosing the one you love the most will take some time. It's so hard to decide with so many stunning choices! Once you get that narrowed down, you can download a watch sizing guide to get the perfect fit. You simply pick your watch, the correct size, and enter your shipping/payment information. In a matter of days, your JORD watch will arrive beautifully packaged and ready for wearing or gifting.
