Device to Keep Students Safe with Giveaway!


This post is sponsored by ROBOCOPP, and contains a sponsored link. 
I have not received compensation or product.

Sending your child off to college can be pretty scary. Not only do you have to hope that they make good choices about many things, but you may worry about their personal safety.

My daughter has just completed her junior year college and safety was my number one concern. I remember reading articles about safety which suggested things such as to never walk alone on campus at night. Or if you had to be out alone at night to either talk on the phone while you walked, or to pretend that you were talking on the phone. Neither of these options made me feel any better.

Recently I learned of an app which can track your students location from point A to point B. This seemed promising at the time, but to actually get my daughter to download and agree to use it was another story.

Then came ROBOCOPP. ROBOCOPP is the worlds smallest SOS personal safety device. It can be clipped onto your key ring, backpack or bag. 



When the device is activated it sounds an alarm as loud as an ambulance, which is why it is also called a Sound Grenade! It has an instant pull-pin activation which is very convenient in an emergency.



I believe this device is a step forward in personal safety, and can provide protection in anyone from a woman out shopping alone, to an elderly or disable individual who are at risk for falls or injury.

What do you think of this product? Would you feel better if your college student had one of these on them while away at school? Would you use this product yourself for your personal safety? 

You can purchase the ROBOCOPP Sound Grenade directly from their website here: https://www.robocopp.com/

If you'd like to try for a chance to win one you can enter my giveaway below! The contest will run until midnight on July 6th, 2016. When a winner is selected I will contact you for your mailing information :) Good Luck!

Monday Special Features #13!



Welcome to my blog series where I feature my top five favorite posts taken directly from my NO RULES Weekend Blog Party! 

Thank you to all who linked up :) We've been having a great turnout so there are always so many wonderful posts to choose from! This also makes it difficult to narrow them down.

Each week the features are quite varied, and I think you'll agree they're all pretty awesome!

If you link up with my blog party be sure to stop back each Monday to find out if you've been featured! 

I have also created a special Pinterest board and pin each feature, which will increase visibility of the posts.



Years ago I taught myself to sew on a sewing machine. It felt really good to be able to make some pretty cool things, but since I'm not exactly an expert I was drawn to this DIY. Crystal shares this no-sew project and the end result is beautiful!


I shared this post from Tilden who shares tips on transitioning her wardrobe from the post-graduate world, to looking sharp on a budget. Even though I am in my 40's, it is blog such as hers where I can go to see if I'm wearing things correctly (e.g.: yes you can wear ankle boots with skirts, who knew?! Apparently not me!). Plus Tilden is from NYC which is all about fashion, and she's gorgeous to boot :) 




I must admit that I'm not a big fan of veggies and have never purchased rice paper in my life, but when I saw this recipe I couldn't help but think how delicious this looks! Deborah shares just how easy it is to make this elegant meal. 



I love, love, love owls which is why I chose this post as one of my favorites! Julie shares 18 different projects..some of which are good for kids while others are for the more advanced. 



Last but not least I have chosen this fun patriotic pancake from Morgan. It looks so fun and colorful with the berries. In this post she also share a healthier pancake recipe for toddlers called Cinnamon Ricotta Pancakes. I may be making these myself on the 4th of July!


I hope you enjoyed the features! 

Have a great week and be sure to stop by and link up 
with my NO RULES Weekend Blog Party beginning 
Thursday mornings, and then stop back by Monday to 
see if your post was chosen as a Monday Special Feature :)
