Mothers have a lot on their minds, ranging from taking care of the kids, the house, their jobs and the list goes on!
With so much on their minds, they need something that can manage mundane things, such as where they last left their car keys, so they can concentrate on more important things.
TrackR Pixel is a small tracking device that you can use to track things that are important to you using Bluetooth and the TrackR app on your smartphone.
This is great for mothers who struggle to keep track of all their belongings with their busy schedules. The device can be attached to a buggy, keys or handbag in case they get lost. The TrackR Pixel helps eliminate the added stress of losing your belongings, which every mother undoubtedly needs!
It’s also great for families – if you, for example, can’t find the remote, you can ring the same TrackR device from multiple phones and TrackR accounts, and thus avoid a few arguments.

LottoLove the first ever social good scratch off card. Debuted a few months ago and the response has been amazing!
The core mission of LottoLove is to bring charitable giving to the everyday gifting space. We take the excitement of a regular scratch off but instead of winning something monetary people win something charitable. We launched with our Basic Needs card and the possible gifts are clean water, solar light, nutritious meals and literacy tools. Every LottoLove card is a winner and gives one of the charitable gifts to someone in need. Consumers must scratch and match icons (instead of numbers) which represent one of our Non-profit partners and their corresponding gift. Upon revealing the matching icon they flip the card over to discover what was given in their honor. Once the card is purchased we make the donation to our partners.
In addition to the donation we make to fulfill each card’s social mission we are also donating a portion of any profits to our Non-Profit partners. This is a gifting item that is an easy add on to any greeting card or gift and great for any occasion.
We are excited to bring charitable giving to the everyday gifting space.

Macdonald Hotels to throw the mother of all Mother’s Day Afternoon Teas
The UK’s largest independently-owned hotel group, Macdonald Hotels, is throwing the Mother of all tea parties for Mother’s Day this year, expecting over 100,000 cakes and sandwiches to be consumed. Stacked one on top of the other, the cake stands holding the tasty treats would be over four times the height of the world’s tallest building; the Burj Khalifa.
After over 80,000 cakes and sandwiches were eaten on Mother’s Day last year at the 45 Macdonald Hotels around the UK, the group expects afternoon tea to be even more popular this year as they have introduced a variety of different ‘tea’ options and packages.
The amount of tea predicted to be consumed across the group’s portfolio is roughly equivalent to the volume of a domestic swimming pool (roughly 3,000 cubic litres), never mind the increasingly popular introduction of prosecco to their Afternoon Teas.
Generations of families return to Macdonald Hotels year after year to treat mothers to a well-deserved afternoon tea because of the excellent service and high quality produce. Famous mums from around the world have enjoyed the quintessentially British treat, including Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and her family, who frequently visited the Macdonald Randolph Hotel in Oxford when her daughter was studying there.
The roots of afternoon tea as a formal dining event can be traced back as far as 1840, when Anna, the 7th Duchess of Bedford felt peckish between the established two meals a day (breakfast and dinner), where she would take tea and a light snack. At the time this was taken privately in her boudoir during the afternoon, however later that year the trend to invite lady friends to join the host in the drawing room became respectable.
To get a taste of the treat that lies in store for mums across the country, here are five hotels that are adding extra luxury this Mother’s Day:
Macdonald Randolph Hotel & Spa, Oxford
Macdonald Randolph Hotel & Spa is the leading 5 star hotel in Oxford and is pulling out all the stops for Mother’s Day this year. In the famous Cartoon Bar, the hotel’s expert chefs and mixologists have combined efforts to create luxurious Bellini and G&T afternoon teas. In the beautiful and charming surroundings of the quintessential university town, Mothers visiting the Randolph will also be treated to a complimentary glass of bubbly on arrival as well as a surprise gift. Both afternoon teas are available for £36.50 per person.
Macdonald Crutherland House Hotel, Lanarkshire
Set in 37 acres of pristine countryside, Macdonald Crutherland House Hotel was originally built in 1705 as a country manor for Lady Dowager of Torrance Castle, a widowed mother of two. The elegant and tranquil surroundings, only a short hop from some from fantastic shopping in Glasgow, Crutherland is the perfect setting to enjoy a Mother’s Day afternoon tea. With a bounty of sweet and savoury treats, the traditional afternoon tea starts at £16.95 per person, or add a bit of sparkle by including a glass of prosecco for £19.95 per person.
Macdonald Compleat Angler Hotel, Marlow
Positioned on the banks of the River Thames is Macdonald Compleat Angler and The Riverside Restaurant. Noted for outstanding food and quality of service, regional executive chef Raj Chakraborty serves up fine British cuisine. Raj describes his food, including his afternoon tea treats as ‘simple yet elegant’ while always aiming to make the most of natural flavours.
Treat Mum to the very best this Mother’s Day, with afternoon tea starting at £27.50 per person, before taking a stroll along the Thames path and enjoying the boutique shops on the High Street.
Macdonald Rusacks, St. Andrews
For foodie Mums, Michelin starred chef Tony Borthwick shall be creating a sumptuous feast for Sunday lunch at the three AA rosette award-winning Rocca restaurant. Each Mum shall receive a complimentary glass of prosecco while enjoying the hotel’s panoramic views overlooking the world-famous 18th hole of the Old Course. Guests keen to build up an appetite can take a leisurely stroll through the historic town or brave a bracing walk along the West Sands Beach. For Mums more inclined to indoor pursuits, not to mention a tipple; there is a chance to take a tour nearby of Eden Mill Scotland’s only combined distillery and brewery. Three course Mother’s Day Sunday lunch from £30, with kids under five eating for free.
Macdonald Old England Hotel & Spa, Windermere
For mother’s hoping to be pampered, the luxury four-star Macdonald Old England Hotel & Spa offers the perfect escape. With the Luxurious Spa Day Package, Mum can start her day by unwinding in the Sensuous Spa with two Elemis treatments, before taking afternoon tea in the Terrace Lounge overlooking the Lake Windermere.
The tea includes a selection of sandwiches, scones and Cumbrian favourites, served alongside a chilled glass of Prosecco. The Luxurious Spa Day package starts from just £99.
Food pairings with afternoon tea options will vary across the country in line with Macdonald Hotel’s commitment to using the highest quality, locally sourced ingredients.

Regulation isn’t keeping a New Jersey company from reaching its goals. After nearly 2 years of preparation, 10BUCKSAROOM, LLC, announced its franchise initiative to sell 300 franchise locations nationwide. The team at 10BUCKSAROOM has been working tirelessly to ensure that all states would be registered in and available to be franchised in for the new year. The first 10BUCKSAROOM franchises in the nation are expected to be granted to New Englanders next month.
Originating in and hailing from Perth Amboy, NJ, 10BUCKSAROOM is revolutionizing the professional cleaning service industry. “From day one, we have set out to change the cleaning industry. Cleaning has been a passion of mine, and I knew there was a lot of room for improvement. We wanted to provide a solution for everyone, as we believe our service should not be limited. Our focus has never changed,” said Maany Silva, the co-founder and vice-president of 10BUCKSAROOM. “Now, we have the opportunity to share our proven business model with people everywhere. This is the moment that we have been working so hard for.”
A franchise is when a brand owner grants the right to profit from its trademarks while also aiding the person using them. To ensure the franchisee gets what the brand owner promises, the federal government and each individual state have laws. This relationship is detailed in a “franchise disclosure document” that describes how the assistance is to be provided. Generally, this document is several hundred pages with franchise fees ranging from tens to hundreds of thousands of dollars.
Silva says 10BUCKSAROOM franchises are unconventional. The disclosure document is 110 pages and lacks requirements to advertise, have an office or brick and mortar location, join cooperatives, attend conventions, and other customary standards. The focus is on generating income, without the franchisees breaking the bank to keep up with crazy fees. “Try finding another service company that has that,” says Silva. “You’ll be hard pressed to do so!”
For anyone thinking about owning a professional cleaning service, the time is now! Check out all the benefits that 10BUCKSAROOM.com franchise offers!

Refined over centuries, for timeless beauty
As a child, GENSEN founder, Rena Oura observed her grandmother and mother’s skin care
rituals. For centuries, the Japanese relaxed in mineral-rich onsen (natural hot springs)
recognising its healing capabilities.
GENSEN’s core ingredient is water from Rena’s family onsen in Miyazaki, Southern Japan.
What is special about this particular onsen water is that its skin restorative powers with the
perfect balance of minerals and being rich in iodine. It can soothe irritated skin, smooth fine
lines and enhance skin regeneration.
GENSEN is the marriage between the
traditions of Japanese skin care and
When Rena moved to Australia, she realised the extent of the skin damage caused by UV rays.
In formulating her range, she sought to have an effective sun protectant that everyone can use.
She found Plat Ceria- a new generation ingredient. Using advanced technology scientists have
taken the rare earth element cerium oxide (ceria) and coated it in platinum. The result is an
effective UV-scattering agent, reflecting both UVA and UVB rays.
Unlike most sunscreens which are oil-based, Plat Ceria is water soluble. Therefore, GENSEN’s
products are lightweight and easily absorbed leaving no residue.
Simple, but highly effective, GENSEN has a 2-step system in its Sun Control Range which can
be used day & night. The Repair Serum and Revitalising Moisturiser used together will restore
and rejuvenate the skin by night, and hydrate and protect the skin by day.
