Let’s face it, we all have a huge collection of electronics. Most of them need to be recharged or plugged in, and the outlets in some of our homes just isn’t enough. Especially our tech savvy family, we live in an older home and the amount of outlets just can’t keep up with the amount of power we need! We’re always using power strips, but those strips are so ugly, unappealing and stick out like a sore thumb.
The Accell Powramid Air Power Center and USB Charging station changes all of our problems. It’s kind of cool looking, not your typical power strip at all. It’s a disc-like shape with a little glow added to it, making this round power center something unique and almost nice to look at in your space.
The Accell Powramid Air Power Center and USB Charging Station has 6 outlets. The difference between this and a normal power strip isn’t only the shape, but being that it’s round, you can use all six outlets no matter what size or shape the adapter is, no more covered ports because of a charger, they all fit and they can all be used! The Accell Powramid Air Power Center and USB charging station is also good for group / office settings as it can be placed allowing everyone access to an outlet.
Besides the power outlets, you are also able to use USB charging ports. There are two available and feature smart chips which will provide a combined 2.4A of fast charging. It’s not just lip service. Plugging my phone in and it was fully charged in a matter of an hour. Any device that can use a USB charger can be charged on the Accell Powramid Air Power Center.
The Accell Powramid Air Power Center also comes with safety features such as surge protection, as well as a blue surge protection indicator light, 15 amp circuit breaker, and a product warranty.
We keep our Powramid Air Power Center used at all times, it’s been a blessing to our home and we were able to get rid of the ugly flat power strips we normally used, it also saved space with its round flat design.

My kids always have their lights on!! Finding a nightlight that’s going to give them enough light to read or whatnot isn’t an easy find, plus, we live in an older home, so outlets aren’t readily available close to their bed where they would need them. That’s why I was excited to give my daughter a 3DLightFX Batman Emblem nightlight!
My daughter isn’t the typical girly girl, she likes anime, she likes comics and she loves drawing, so when I saw the Batman Emblem (her favorite superhero) I knew it was a go.
First of all, the light is battery operated, no outlet needed you can attach it right to the wall close to their bed. Love! You can screw it in, but we opted to use velcro command strips so we could easily get it off and on the wall when we needed to replace batteries. It does come with a sticker that makes it look like the emblem is cracking out of the wall, however, it wouldn’t stick on my daughters wall for whatever reason, so she’s using the light without it.
The light is soft enough not to disrupt sleep, but also bright enough that she can use it to see when she needs to. There are lots of other characters and emblems you can choose from with 3DLightFX, there’s one for just about anyone. From Characters, to Sports you’ll find something your child, or maybe even yourself would enjoy.

Finding good stories and role models for our little girls isn’t always the easiest things to do in today’s world, that’s why when books like Nina, The Neighborhood Ninja are brought to my attention, I like to highlight them.
This picture book for ages 3+ written by Sonia Panigrahy and Illustrated by Hazel Quintanilla provides an empowering message for both young girls and boys alike. Nina is a girl who likes to complete rescue missions and uses both her brains and brawn to do so. She climbs trees and gets dirty just like the little boys and pretends to be an everyday superhero. Nina protects her neighborhood and those in need within it, with her sidekick a cute, dependable firefly. She shows readers how to be smart, strong and speedy. Nina allows girls to recognize they have this within themselves and can be superheroes too!
The illustrations are bright and cute, and each one tells the story perfectly along with language that makes this book easily accepted by those children 3+. You can find Nina The Neighborhood Ninja on Amazon.com in Hardcover, Softcover and Kindle.
About Author Sonia Panigrahy….
Author Sonia Panigrahy is a public health professional, world traveler, adventure seeker, and fitness enthusiast. She believes that life is too short to be bored! Nina the Neighborhood Ninja was created out of Sonia’s lifelong love of reading. As her family and friends begin to have children, she looked forward to sharing this love with them. She believes that books are a powerful way to empower impressionable young minds. Sonia was surprised that she could not find books for girls ages 3-6 years that realistically identified females as intelligent, physically tough, brave, and adventurous. She was disappointed that girls continue to be excluded from the heart of the superhero story. After unsuccessful attempts to find a young girl superhero protagonist on the pages of a book, especially one of color, she gave up. Then she created her own.

Blue Ribbons began as a review site, where we connected consumers with online retailers and facilitated an exchange of discounted products for honest reviews.

Blue Ribbons has now become a one-stop-shop for the best deals from many of the most popular online retailers! (Think Amazon, eBay, Best Buy, etc.) What we do is scour the internet for the best deals, of 70% off or more, on a wide range of products for any and everyone in the family! No hassle of discount codes, reviews to deal with, or hoops to jump through – just great deals! New products are added daily and the existing products are updated to reflect the most current discount.
Not only do we want to save you money, but we strive to make it as easy as possible! Blue Ribbons is simple and using the website is always free!
