“In combination with some decent work socks, these boots work wonders. I work as a Kennel Tech (with dogs) and I never slip or slide while walking dogs and doing tasks about the facility. These boots stay dry when wet on the outside. highly recommend” says Len, a Safety Girl reviewer.

Super stylish and affordable.

“They’re so comfortable and lightweight that I forget I’m wearing them. Will definitely buy again, as I’d like to have a couple extra pair in case my current ones get lost or to just carry an extra pair in my gun case. Thanks for such a cool product at such a reasonable price!” says Linda, a Safety Girl customer.

Pink: The Color of Strength

Pink is sometimes associated with the words cute, nice, romantic, and tender but here at Safety Girl, we give it a much stronger meaning…Strength. Since we pride ourselves for selling much safety gear in the color pink, we figured it might be a good idea to give you some interesting information about the color and what is has developed into.

Bright pink is thought to increase blood pressure, respiration, heartbeat and pulse. This color also stimulates energy. Wearing pink can also encourage the idea of higher confidence and reduce erratic behavior.

The famous pink ribbon, first seen in the Susan G. Komen Foundation, was given to breast cancer survivors and those who participated in Race for the Cure in 1990. Later, the senior vice president of the famous cosmetic company, Estee Lauder, introduced the pink ribbon to her product line. Margaret Welch, director of Color Association of the U.S., says “The profile on pink is playful, life-affirming. We have studies as to its calming effect, its quieting effect, its lessening of stress.” Therefore, pink is the opposite of cancer so we want to fight back with this color. Estee Lauder continued their fight for this pink ribbon by also handing out breast exam pamphlets to their customers to increase awareness. Since then, many other companies have jumped on the bandwagon by either donating to or advertising breast cancer awareness such as New Balance and Avon.

We can still think of the color pink as feminine but it is a sign of strength, also. At Safety Girl, we are strong in different ways. The women that shop with us are in all lines of work and work HARD. We want to give them products to depend on while still being feminine and stylish.

We sell pink apparel, accessories, boots, shoes and safety equipment!

Pink Power!

Needle nose pliers – the bane of my existence! I need the pliers, but they keep walking away from where I hid them. I can never seem to find them even when I hid them so no one else can find them!

I’m almost sure, in a houseful of men, my tools would be safe if they were pink and had a dark pink tool beltdark belt. That’s the power of pink, in this case – PINK PROTECTION!  You gotta love the dark pink color, heavy-duty suede leather and adjustable waist (fits waists 30″ – 42″) with hammer loop. There are 9 utility pockets to make a place for just about anything you’re carrying around.

toolkitThis has to be a bigger problem than just at our house. I have a sneaky feeling that it’s more about convenience – as in, I know where this is because the person-who-puts-stuff-up put it here, than ANYTHING else!  I’m not totally sure that PINK has the POWER to keep the tools safe, but I’ll keep you posted!  It’s certainly worth a try if I can find the secret is PINK POWER!

Rag Rolling

20140810_093358 Now that hockey season has started (if you have kids that seriously engage in the sport, you know it requires about 13 months and billions of dollars a year), I will have some weekends to myself as Andy travels or hosts for hockey showcases, championships, and tournaments. Lucy plays while Gracie values the dad-time. Sometimes I go, but sometimes I need to sit out to allow their full bonding time. This weekend, Andy had two hockey dad house guests for a weekend kickoff to camp. I was hoping to get the walls and floor done with my copious spare time. Ha!

20140715_201112I have heard two schools of thought on stripping wallpaper: those who think it’s a nightmare and those who think it’s relatively easy. My opinion is somewhere in the middle but I will tell you, my mind has been changed about stripping all the wallpaper in the house. I heard about a secret weapon called a paper tiger but I couldn’t find one, so I just peeled, squirted, peeled, wiped, rinse, repeat. Because this job alternated tasks and I am doing this alone, the tool belt from SafetyGirl was really quite essential for keeping my screwdriver (scoring) and cleaning rag right near where I was working.

As I was stripping, one of the wall sconces fell off the wall and nailed me in the forehead. Luckily the wires remained nutted and the bulb didn’t break. “I know Daddy built you, light fixture, but Daddy ain’t here. I have no trouble tossing you in the garbage.” Remember my fear that I would find something amiss under the wall sconces? I kind of did – when the paper was removed last time, that second layer was left on and the new paper applied over it. It was almost impossible to remove.

I have to give credit where it is due: my dad was the king of repurposing and making things work. My mom is the queen of doing things right. I have to assume my dad was the one who left the traces of paper there.

The stripping took about a week of after-work work. Saturday I wiped down the walls, patched the dings, sanded, and primed. I used the half mask respirator when I sanded. If you’ve done drywall work before you know the value in this. So nice not to have to remove dust from my hair, nose, eyes, skin – you name it!

20140816_145517coverallI was going to rag-roll a seafoam glaze coating over white walls but the glaze ended up turning the very pale paint a warm beige. I am ok with that. I experimented and used a wet rag and the additive method, rolling the rag by hand, then scrubbing when almost dry, to smooth the pattern a bit to look more organic. That job was beyond a mess and I was glad to have Discount Safety Gear’s disposable coveralls. I wore one for the entire wall painting job, and I probably could have broken that down into two, the thing was so covered. The disposable rugged blue gloves were also a necessity because I would still have sticky glaze darkening my hands as I write.

An out-of-town friend was to stay with me Saturday night after spending time with her mother, which forced me to cdisp work gloveslean up mid-project. Gail ended up canceling due to a death in the family but I was very glad I was forced to clean for her arrival anyway. Andy invited me over to meet his friends, since I’d be available. Oh, and can I pick up a bottle of tonic water on my way? Mrs. Ford likes vodka and tonics and she may come out. Really?!? Picking up groceries for another woman? He said, “I’ll pay you back.” “Oh, no you don’t!” I said. “I prefer the right to bring this up for years to come, rather than have the dollar.” I arrived, tonic in hand, hyperventilating with all that still had to be done. Lucy, Grace, and what seemed like seven or eight other girls (I think in actuality there were only three) ran to the street fair down the road while the adults visited for a bit.

20140817_190925Sunday morning, I looked at the bathroom with fresh eyes before church. The walls looked unfinished, so I used the same metallic textured paint to paint a border at the ceilings, then I filled it in with chunks of texture smeared on with a small scraper. I think I got the stripe a bit too wide but I like it anyway. Again with the gloves and coveralls. Since I was using found and extra paint and glaze, cost for this phase was only $2.50 for the patch.

Painting the floor still makes me nervous, because while the vinyl tile is a step away from gone, everything I read said painting it can turn out great, or a disaster, and I can’t afford to replace it. I am also toying with the idea of what is called a Chattahoochee floor, or river stone/pebble floor. I am reading conflicting reviews, however, on whether this is best done by epoxy, or mortar and grout. I think if I did this, I would overlay the existing vinyl tile with black landscaping plastic and work that surface. With the weight and stones hugging the toilet it would stay in place, but also be much easier to remove if I don’t like it. I will ponder the floor for another week.

I ended up being glad I stopped for Mrs. Ford’s tonic, even though Mrs. Ford herself didn’t show up. Andy made me the best gin and tonic I have ever tasted. Quality gin, fresh lime juice, lovely garnish. I could happily live in that man’s kitchen.
