Matching outfits for the fam bam and the pooch too!

Who loves to have matching pjs for the whole family and even your adorable pets? I bet you do, too. I was just browsing those cute prints from LazyOne family pajamas and could not help myself from adding the items to the shopping cart. The loungewear is so pretty, right? They are in fashion since the quarantine took effect.

Our family has been home bound since the government declared quarantine five months ago. My daughter is working from home and is comfortable wearing shirts and pajamas even in daytime. My son, on the other hand, is taking online learning classes twice a week and accepts art commission during his free time. He, too, is comfortable wearing shirts and shorts sets while doing his stuff.

Pajamas are comfortable to wear because they are commonly made of cotton materials and do not feel icky when you perspire.

Checking on their website, LazyOne also carries cute and fun socks. My daughter definitely loves a pair of printed socks. I would be happy to add two more pairs for her and myself to the shopping cart.  

I have got our pooch, a cute bandana as well. Oreo would look good wearing one in his next photo.

We have not tried any of the products from LazyOne just yet but the company touches on some good points, which I think are important before you buy from them.

According to their website, the company only works with factories that have sound environmental policies; the hangers and hang tags they use to display their products are made from recycled or recyclable paper. In addition, the company uses azo-free dyes when coloring or dyeing the fabrics.

It is good to note that pjs and socks are definitely the best gift idea for the coming Christmas season. You do not need to go to the physical shop in order to purchase them. You can all order these items directly from their website. Besides family loungewear sets, they also have something for your house. So, check them out. 

Professional Medical Style

Patients quickly respond to a positive environment in a medical office such as clean furniture and organized items on counter tops. Those patients expect to receive accurate information and to be treated with respect. You can improve your professional appearance in the office by wearing a uniform that will be recognized by your patients. Some physicians and dentists prefer to wear scrubs in the office because the patients will be reassured by a professional appearance.

Scrubs

If you wear scrubs, then you can quickly change into your street clothes before you leave the office. The scrubs can be safely wrapped inside a plastic bag, which will help you to control the effects from cross-contamination. You should store the scrubs inside a plastic bag until you wash and dry those scrubs with a clothes washer and dryer. The germs from your scrubs will not be transferred to the other clothes that are in your laundry basket.

Office Style

There are many different colors of scrubs such as blue, brown, black and purple. The color of your scrubs could match your office décor. There are also scrubs that have different designs and patterns. The floral designs may not be suitable for the men who work in your office. You could pin a name tag to your scrubs or could have your name embroidered on the scrubs. The scrubs could also be personalized with the business name of your office.

Health Care Administrators

Some office environments have fewer potential risks for cross-contamination. You may want to wear a lab coat over your street clothes while you are speaking with your patients but may not want to wear scrubs because you will need to change into street clothes for your business meetings during the day. Many medical professionals store a lab coat in their office such as one of the Dickies lab coats from Scrubs Unlimited. The lab coats are a convenient solution for busy medical professionals who also have administrative duties.

Customer Service

A medical office is a business office, which is a key point for many medical professionals. You should cater to the preferences of your patients who want to be reassured and want to feel safe in your office. Scrubs can be used to convey a professional message to your patients, which will encourage them to make another appointment with you. Your style will enhance your professional image.

Surviving the Winter being active

Let’s make 2016 be that year we challenge ourselves and our behaviors. Have you started fulfilling New Year Resolution’s related to getting fit?  If you live in a cold weather state or plan on visiting one keep in mind it doesn’t take long to get frostbite. If you like to participate in cold weather sports or activities outdoors like ice skating, ice hockey, ice fishing, winter bike riding, skiing, snowboarding, sledding or skiing; here are some of the best ways to stay warm and avoid getting frost bite.

Dress in layers starting from the inside out:

The layer next to your skin should be able provide protect & keep in heat.  Wool wicks sweat away from the body and dries quickly.  Next layer should provide insulation from the elements.  It can be wool, down or a fleece.  It will not be the outer layer. The outer layer should be something that is water resistant or repellant.  It should provide protection from the elements. Once you have the basics covered let’s start to accessorize by adding things that will ensure our bodies are covered from the elements from head to toe.

Consider looking into a face mask that covers most of your face if you are a person that likes being outdoor in the elements.  Do you enjoy ice skating or ice hockey?  These are great alternative forms of exercise but wearing warm gloves or leg warmers would definitely make the time spent on the ice more bearable especially if the activities take place outside.

There are some people that enjoy riding their bikes year round even in cold weather.  In addition to wearing face masks, please consider looking into appropriate waterproof boots and gloves to aid you in getting around town.  If you are an avid ice fisher, insulated snow bibs offer warmth and comfort while waiting for the fish to bite.

Being outdoors in the elements can be an excellent way to get fit.  Wearing thermal socks is also another great solution to keeping your entire body warm while you are out in the elements. Even if you take all the proper precautions try to limit your exposure time in cold weather by going indoors frequently to warm up and avoid frostbite. You burn more calories in the cold, but be safe.  Be sure to check out the offering at Gander Mountain.  If you do consider using Groupon Coupons to get additional savings by utilizing the coupons to use discount codes to gain greater savings.
