I don’t know about you, but one of my New Years’ resolutions is to get healthier. I try to stay healthy all year long, but there is always room for improvement. And don’t forget about self-care and relaxation!

X-HMT Heat + Massage Office Chair

Treat yourself to a luxurious office chair that not only provides great comfort and keeps you ergonomically aligned, but also has heat and massage. I have the X² Executive Task Chair and I LOVE IT. But this one has 4 different combinations of massage, two levels of massage (gentle and powerful), therapeutic healing technology, and dynamic variable lumbar support. Imagine getting a massage or heat therapy while you’re working or during a break. …


Enjoy a healthier and happier you this year. Let’s get it started right.

Part of my New Years' resolution each year is to be more organized. Here are some ways I’m doing that this year.

Torchiere Floor Lamp

I use this lamp in my bedroom and absolutely love it. The lights in my bedroom are way too bright for me, and they aren’t dimmable. With this floor lamp, I can dim it when it gets close to bedtime and reach over to turn it off when I’m ready to go to sleep. I also save money on electricity because it’s dimmable and uses an LED lightbulb. It gets super bright if you want it to — up to 2400LM and 3000K natural daylight. …


I decided to go on a hunt for some of the best vegetarian and vegan foods, and this is the result.

Cutting Board Cheeze Shreds

Daiya has given me great tasting vegan cheese (it’s rare), and I love them for that! They have cheese shreds, cheese sticks, and cheese slices. My favorite is the cheddar, especially in a grilled cheese.

DARKNESS IN TENEMENT 45 (DT45)

Out on digital and video on demand November 3rd, 2020

This creepy movie mirrors what we’ve gone through this year with the worldwide pandemic and being in lockdown. It’s set in the 1950s with some residents of a New York City building. They’re locked in due to a biological attack during the Cold War. All of the doors and windows are boarded up, and no one is allowed outside.

The supplies are running thin, and paranoia sets in. There’s a self-appointed leader who reminds me of a “Karen,” and the teens trapped with her are starting to question whether she’s honest about the dangers of the outside world.

It’s a spooky, unsettling, creepy movie coming out on election day.

Watch the trailer and download a digital copy on November 3rd to watch on Amazon Prime.

If you loved the Final Destination movies, you’re going to love Don’t Look Back. It’s written and directed by Jeffrey Reddick, the creator of the Final Destination movies.

Caitlin Kramer is among a group of people who witness the murder of a man. Everyone watches him get beat to death, and one witness is even filming the incident. Finally, Caitlin, who froze due to a traumatic past, snaps out of it and calls 911.

Dwight from The Office, ahem, Rainn Wilson, plays the news anchor and paints the witnesses as horrible people because they all watched a man get murdered and did nothing to stop it. …
