Cordskinz - Live The Untangled Life

When I first received the Cordskinz, I thought they came with the earbuds! Then it was like... 'skinz, like clothing...

Lightbulb!

Suddenly it was awesome fun to see how this product was going to work. It is perfect because it's back to school and one of the items my son needs for working in his classroom are earbuds!



I did purchase a new set of earbuds for him, but his old ones still worked and was much better to use with the Cordskinz because the length matched.

At first I tried the Cordskinz with his new earbuds, the color would have matched so perfectly, but the cordskinz would have to be cut to fit and I didn't want to do that. So I went with his old skinny ones that had the better length.

I noticed that the skinnier earbuds allow the cordskinz to slip down a bit, but figured I'd washi tape it sooner or later.

The Cordskinz seems very sturdy and practical.

Who better to test this out than a middle schooler! I can only imagine how twisted his earbuds would have become by now if it wasn't for the cordskinz!



And he likes it too! Oh and it's in his favorite color. Boy color :)
But the Cordskinz are available in 11 colors, so you can choose any and more than one favorite! Match your outfit if you want to :)

Do you own any cordskinz?
Will you purchase any?
Do your earbuds tangle?

The application of the skins to the earbuds is the easiest as pie thing! Maybe I shouldn't say pie since some people do not like baking eh :)



The Cordskinz promises:
  • No More tangled earbuds!
  • Anti-Tangler
  • Cord Protector
  • Simple To Use 
  • Lightweight
  • Fashion Accessory! 

I lovely the simplicity and how practical it is! I'd recommend this product and definitely include as a gift to anyone!

I've very excited about this product!

The Story Of Cordskinz:

In the spring of 2011 while making a phone call to her sister, one of our founders got frustrated with her tangled earbuds for the last time. It didn't take long to discover that the same struggle and frustration with this tangled mess was shared by many others around the world. The result? Our ingenious, yet simple little product named Cordskinz was born.
Since that spring day, we at Abba Daddy have devoted our time to fine-tuning a product that would give the world the solution to their problem and allow them to start living
the "Untangled Life."

Our Mission:
And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.  1 Corinthians 13:13
It is our mission at Abba Daddy LLC to give back to the world. We believe it is important to lift one another up and express the love of God in action. Below are some of the organizations that we will be supporting in their efforts to help people "Untangle their Lives" with their specific callings.


Do you own any cordskinz? 
Will you purchase any? 
Do your earbuds tangle? 




I received two of the cordskinz to facilitate this review.

War - It's More Than Just Killing - #Music + #Giveaways

I've been seeing the poster for War Room about and didn't even give it a glance, figuring it was just another war movie etc.

So much for missing out by being judgmental right?

Anyway, I was on instagram and saw a little write up on it, slowed down to read it and realize I really do want to watch this movie.

And Steven has a new song out on it. I love it.

I realize too, I want to begin documenting my prayers. It's a great idea to see what was answered when and how.
