Madison vs. Fusion

We’ve had a lot of question on whether the Madison or Fusion Boot would be better suited for particular customers. Therefore, we’d like to break them down side by side so you can decide yourself. Th main difference is that the Madison has a fur lining for colder weather. They are both our own brand, Safety Girl, and they are specially crafted with you in mind! Either boot is great for work or play. The steel toe is great for working conditions whether you need protection from falling objects or slipping hazards. You won’t regret either pair of these boots because they are so comfortable!

 

BOTH STYLES:

  • Good Year Welt Construction
  • Oil Resistant Outsole
  • Slip Resistant Outsole

Holiday Stress Tips

Image result for holiday madness

It is November 22 which means Thanksgiving is tomorrow and Christmas & New Years are around the corner. If you’re like me, you are super excited to see the new year but before we can get to that we have many stressors coming our way (along with the joy of the Holiday Season!). Maybe your in laws are coming to town, or it’s your first Thanksgiving hosting dinner, or it’s your baby’s first Christmas or you are having a New Year’s Eve Party! No matter what is coming at you this holiday season..we have some tips that are simple yet the most effective way to stay in your right state of mind.

  1. Exercise – We know you are on the move 27/7 in November & December so you are probably exercising just by gift shopping! If not, make sure to get on the tread mill or take an evening walk with a friend if you live in a warmer climate. It will help keep you motivated & you will feel less guilty about eating all that yummy turkey.
  2. Sleep – DO NOT get less than 7 hours of sleep! You will regret it for days. Your body absolutely needs this time to replenish and get you ready for the day ahead.
  3. Drink H2O – This is probably my #1 rule: HYDRATION. Don’t let this one slip either. Your body is made mostly of water so you need to counteract for that wine! Or sweating while shopping. I promise you will feel better the more water you drink. Your body will thank you.
  4. Treat Yourself – Just because you are spending time & money on family does not mean to forget about you. Get a comfy hoodie from the Safety Girl site, throw something in your cart for you on Black Friday without feeling guilty or simply cut out one night of your time for a self pampering spa night!

These are just a few tips and tricks to keep you feeling your best this Holiday season. We love this time of year but it can get stressful! Enjoy your family, good food & great friends instead of feeling drained & stressed!

DIY Cold Weather Car Emergency Kit 🚗

While the months get colder, something you need to think about is what you would do if your car broke down on a snowy, blistering cold day. It’s not necessarily a happy thought but it may save you one day! When I was just starting to drive, my mom made me pack my car with all the “essentials” and now I completely understand why. The following are a couple ideas to keep in mind if you find yourself driving in the winter time. Hopefully, if this unfortunate event does happen to you, you will be within walking distance from a store or have a phone to call for help. This leads me to my first precaution…

Always make sure your phone is fully charged before you leave the house

This is something most of us are pretty good about anyway because it is our main line of communication. If you find yourself stranded with a broken down car and your car battery is drained, you won’t be able to use your car phone charger, so keep that in mind.

Put together a cold weather emergency kit

You can purchase a tote at Target or Wal-Mart and pack all these essentials in it to keep them together in your trunk

  • Flashlight
  • Blanket
  • Gloves
  • Hat
  • Snack
  • Flares
  • Cat Litter (can be used in place of salt)
  • First Aid Kit
  • Jumper Cables
  • List of family phone numbers

Check out this roadside kit from Safety Girl that has 16 different car safety pieces including a flashlight, air compressor, help sign, jumper cables, cable ties, etc.

5 Facts About Working Women 2017

As a woman, we are constantly juggling home, work and life in general. We do not believe we are better than men, we are just working to be equal. As most of us are aware, women are still not paid as well as men in a lot of different occupations. We’re not going to let that stop us from striving to change this statistic, though. If Beyonce above doesn’t motivate you, read the rainbow of facts below from the U.S. Dept. of Labor to give you some motivation to get that degree you always wanted or work for that promotion! SafetyGirl has your back!

The technology they entail is completely new to anything we currently have on the site. If we have to wear a safety shoe, we want to make them stylish!

The Safety Toe: The unique thing about these athletic shoes is that Wolverine invented a brand new Carbonmax Safety Toe. The point of these safety caps is that they are lightweight without sacrificing protection. The walls of the cap are thin, providing extra room for your toes. They are ASTM rated and will prevent your feet from falling object injury.

The Shoe: The entire shoe only weighs 10.5 oz! This is meant to take unnecessary strain off of your legs and feet when you’re wearing them for a long time. The shoe is made of a breathable mesh that is moisture-wicking and also provides ventilation for odor control. You’ll enjoy walking around on the memory foam foot bed. (think of those bathroom memory foam mats!) The nylon shank adds support to your foot to reduce injury.

The Outsole: The outsole of this shoe is rubber lug so it is extremely durable. It is also slip resistant on a variety of surfaces.

Tips for Comfortable Work Boots

Some of you probably have your boots on for over 40 hours a week. That’s over 23% of the time. Comfort is key to keeping you and your feet happy. We want to give you a few tips for finding your perfect boot.

1. Make Sure They Are Right For You

Not all boots are going to be comfortable on all feet. We each have different arches, widths and walking habits.

When you first put on your fancy new boots, slide your toes to the front & bend your knee. Only the width of your finger should fit between your heel and the back of the boot.

Walk in them. Make sure your foot is not sliding around. If it is…tighten the laces and try again. If it’s still an issue, they’re not right for your foot.

Make sure there is no bend in the boot where your arch is.

Don’t try on boots when your feet are cold. Once you’re working and your feet are in a true work setting, they will swell. So heat up your feet before trying them on.

 2. Wear Wool/Polyester Socks

The Socks Addict blog tells us that wool socks are AMAZING for boots. They are specifically cushioned for comfort. You also want to look for anti microbial, moisture-wicking and breathable characteristics in your socks. A good option is the Wigwam 40 Below Socks or  the Wigwam Merino Wool Socks.

3. Keep Your Boots Healthy

Make sure if they are wet after work, you invest in a boot dryer or even hang them so they can dry properly. Remove any excess dirt with a boot brush every single day. Hydrate them with conditioner every once in a while.

Right now, we’re offering you 10% off Logger boots with code DEAL10!

5 Books to Read Right Now

I know we’re all really busy with work and family but I cannot stress how important it is to take time for yourself. For some, it may be a nice hot bath or a glass of wine, for others a good empowering book is just what the doctor ordered. I’ve read some really great books recently that I wanted to share if you are in the market.

1. #GirlBoss by Sophia Amoruso – for those who need job inspirtation & motivation

This is a personal story by the author, Sophia Amoruso, who went from living on the streets and theft to a successful CEO of a major company, Nasty Gal. She is a prime example that the owners of a company are not always “typical” or “born into it”. If you feel in a rut at your work place or just want to learn more about this story, pick up this book!

 

 

 

2. The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca Skloot – for those who enjoy science & ethics

This story will make you think ethics, race & science all at once. Henrietta Lacks was a poor African American woman who could barely put food on the table for her children. She never had anything to handed to her. When she became very ill, some would argue that she was used. Her body cells (commonly known as HeLa cells today) were taken without her or her family’s knowledge and are now used for study of some of the most vital diseases we face today. Does the family deserve compensation? Should the cells even be used?

 

 

 

 

3. You Are Enough by Cassie Mendoza-Jones – for those who need inspiration & self worth discovery

This book is amazing. It teaches you, at any age, how to love yourself and not someone else more than you. It’s not just filled with a bunch of inspirational quotes…it actually has questions to make you think and helps determine thinking patterns that are making you feel not worthy. If you’ve ever compared yourself to someone and it got the best of you, this would be an excellent read for you!

 

 

 

 

4. Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn- for those who like a thriller & suspense

Everyone has seen that couple that makes us sick with how happy they are (or seem to be). Maybe that portrayal is fake? Are they really that happy? This book tells a story of a married woman who seems to have the best marriage but suddenly goes missing. Nobody believes her husband is capable of murdering her or hurting her but do they really know him? What happened to her? If the suspense is killing you, read this book to find out!

 

 

 

5. Eat Pray Love by Elizabeth Gilbert – for those who want a little bit of everything

A woman had “everything everyone wanted” at home but still felt empty and confused so she traveled the world for a year. She learned new cultures, new food, new relationships and so much more. If you don’t have the time or money to travel the world (most of us do not) then you can almost live vicariously through her experiences by reading this book.

 

 

 

Take some time to sit down with a good book that interests you!
