It is one thing to see photos of loved ones over special occasions – the Holiday cards, wedding announcements and new baby or home photos when you can’t be close. But, what elevates a good photo is voice and movement. Heirloom is you video book, like a photo book, but when you open it a screen plays videos and sound that was meant for you to watch.

You upload a video or create a file containing multiple videos or photos that will play as a slideshow and pick a cover! There are covers for all occasions. I chose the Wedding cover so I can document all the planning, meet ups and celebrations that will lead up to my little sisters wedding this June as her Maid of Honor. I have already captured dress try on day and will have meeting days, bridal showers and bachelorette party as well as getting ready. Then I can put them in order in a file and upload them into a book and gift this summer. I will make sure to share on my social media how it all turns out.

As a customer to start, with all of your photos/videos ready to go, head to Heirloom, upload, find a cover and send the book. A 10 minute playback is $49.99 and 20 minutes is an extra $20 ($69.99).

Pura smart home fragrance diffuser and scents are a hit this season

Scents offer so much to a space – a fresh scent helps my space feel cleaner after chore day, kitchen scents inspire me in the kitchen and cozy scents make my guests feel welcome when we host an event at our home. The best scents just happen, without anything bulky on the counters or messes if something gets knocked over. This is why Pura has become such a hit. Pura uses smart home technology so you can control your scents easily on your phone.

The unit fits 2 scents so you have choices. Each scent can be scheduled as well as assigned an intensity scale. I like to start with my scents pretty low intensity (1) and decide to strengthen it if a lot is happening or doors are being left open, giving a need for more release. The unit is also a built-in nightlight and you choose the colors and settings. I have mine on a light green color for the Holidays and ambiance of my family room.

I love all of the scent selections to choose from and they are so easy to change out. Above is my Pura app as it displays my 2 scents I am using right now – Cliff and Bamboo & Green Tea. I choose which scent to activate and I have Cliff going right now which has a pleasant scent of crisp ozone and white pineapple combine with Sicilian bergamot, mandarin, and fragrant florals – like being outside on a ridge in spring.

The company was founded in 2014 by two men, Richie Stapler and Bruno Lima. The aim of the company is to deliver home fragrance products with no harmful chemicals or ingredients. The innovation is also seen within their friendly trypura.com website. You can shop for scents by type, room and strength. You can even take their scent quiz that will leave you with their scent blends that match your preference. Visit trypura today and order your set.

Walk-in baths is a tub with a door to allow easy entry and exit for individuals with mobility issues. Anyone can use walk-in tubs, but they are especially beneficial for seniors or those with disabilities. 

In addition to the obvious safety benefits of having a door on your tub, walk-in tubs also offer several other safety and experience features that can make your bathing experience more enjoyable. Here are some safety and experience features you can find in walk-in tubs.

Anti-slip flooring 

The anti-slip floor is designed to prevent slipping, making it an essential safety feature of walk in bathtubs. In addition, textured flooring can provide a good grip, making it ideal for wet or slippery surfaces. Alternatively, nonslip mats can be placed on the floor of the tub to provide extra traction. Whichever type of anti-slip flooring you choose, ensure it is compatible with your walk-in bathtub to ensure the best possible safety and protection.

Grab bars 

Grab bars provide extra security and stability when getting in and out of the tub, which is especially important for those with limited mobility or at risk of falling. In addition, grab bars can help support your weight when sitting down or standing up, making it easier to maintain your balance. Finally, when installed correctly, grab bars can provide extra peace of mind and help you enjoy your walk-in tub for many years.


When most of us think about taking a bath, we picture relaxing in a warm tub filled with bubbles. However, it’s important to remember that bathing in extremely hot or cold water can be dangerous. Thousands of people are injured yearly by scalding water, and young children and seniors are particularly vulnerable. One way to help prevent these burns is to choose a walk-in tub with an anti-scald feature. This type of bathtub is designed to maintain a consistent water temperature, even if the tap is turned on and off multiple times.

Outward opening doors 

The door on walk in bathtubs with shower is typically located at the end of the tub, away from the faucets and controls. This allows you to enter and exit the tub without having to reach over the edge of the tub or twist your body. In addition, the door on a walk-in tub is usually wider than a standard bathtub door, making it easier to enter and exit the tub if you have limited mobility.

Heated Seating 

If you live in a cold climate, you know how difficult it can be to get into a cold tub. However, with a heated seat, you can enjoy a warm and comfortable place to sit while you bathe. This is especially beneficial if you have arthritis or joint pain.

Final thoughts 

If you are considering installing a walk-in bathtub in your home, many different safety and experience features are available that can make your bathing experience more enjoyable. When choosing a walk-in tub for your home, look for features like anti-slip flooring, grab bars, hydrotherapy jets, outward-opening doors, and heated seating.
