Tech To Bring Music to Your Ears and Light Up Your Life

As we spend more time outdoors, we look for ways to bring some creature comforts with us.  Check out some of the gear that makes outside a little more modern.

Do you love a good run? Maybe hike, kayak, or even just some time in the gym. Finding good earphones that can deal with sweat is not always the easiest task, but most of us like to bring music (or some form of audio) with us for our workouts. The new PaMu TWS wireless earphones are easy to wear, truly have no wires (really, Pinocchio) until you have to charge them, of course, and are sweat-proof and water resistant. They have some must have features, including Hi-Fi Sound, Auto-connects,Touch Control, Auto Pairing that lets you make calls and listen to music while your phone is in your pocket (or beyond), an In-Ear Mic, they come with a portable Charging Pod that neatly fits your buds and doubles as a travel case, and more. They are reasonably comfortable for ear buds. To me, while wearing them, they reminded me of a Dr. Who episode of Cybermen- that’s how it all started. Giant ear buds, then you become a Robot working for your new alien overlords. Ah, maybe not- but it makes me laugh. You can grab yours before they even hit shelves on indiegogo.

Always on the go?  AdventureJumpStart is a great option for those of us who are constantly on the move- it can not only recharge your tablets and smartphones, but it also has the ability to jump start most cars, trucks, boats and ATVS. Really. And? It’s small. Best. Gift. Ever.

The MISSION Athletecare’s EnduraCool towel is a great way to beat the heat for your family, children, and those friends you work out with. The EnduraCool towel is just what you are looking for with the temperatures rising when working or playing outside with your children.

The instant cooling technology is activated when you wet the towel and wring it out and snapping it to chill the fabrics surface temperature by up to 30 degrees. The user of the towel simply places the towel around his or her neck, forehead, or the desired area for instant relief from the heat.

Work It Out at Kohl’s

Getting into shape is “one of those things” that many of us struggle with daily.  We all want to look and feel great, but many of us weren’t born with perfect genes or a great metabolism.  Couple that with the junk that is pumped into food these days (yes, yay for technology) and busy lives, and it’s just not easy, is it?  It’s no wonder why so many people make losing weight or personal fitness their New Year’s resolution.  Did you start off strong in January, but now that February is here, you are wavering a little?  Kohl’s has your back.

WP_20150222_15_33_40_ProThey have great sales on everything you need to lose weight and get into shape (without breaking the bank).  I love all the bright colors as well- with a winter that seems like it will drag on for all eternity, it is nice to at least wear the colors that the outside world is missing, yes?

WP_20150222_15_34_06_ProI belong to a local gym, which is helpful for me, because I really dislike this cold weather, and I promise you I would not be out in it much for walks or whatnot.  I am outside as little as humanly possible right now, so I am grateful for that membership!  Another option that I utilize is at-home workout DVDs and yoga.  Kohl’s has a fairly wide variety of both DVDs and workout equipment, from weights to yoga mats and more.  They carry all the brands you know, trust, and love, as well as the DVDs with trainers you really want to watch. Even better news- they are all on sale.

Thanksgiving is over, the turkey is gone, and so are the leftovers. But that extra scoop of mashed potatoes is still around- around the middle, that is. Might as well get started on those New Years resolutions- really. Stick with them. Hit the gym with some new clothes, that’s a motivator! Modetta Performance Gear is a Canada based active wear label which has recently released its newest line of high tech, high fashion active wear, “My Performance, My Lifestyle”. This line bring the idea of performance, fashion and new materials to the next level by showcasing real athletes and dancers using their active wear. We really liked the Rhea and Persephone tops which are both lightweight yet supportive tank tops. They are quick drying, moisture wicking and stretch in just about all directions. They are easy to slip on and slip off, perfect for under a t-shirt or even just when running to the store.
