Softline Home Fashions has asked me to be the spokesman for Simple Drape, an easy-to-use product that can be hung over windows without any tools. It blocks out 99.9 percent of the morning sun to improve after-sunrise sleep.
The Simple Drape kit comes with two self-adhering rods, sliding hangers and two pleated drapery panels with the hooks already installed. A 3M backing on the rod is peeled off, place on the wall over the window and then the panels are attached.
Look for my photo and endorsement on the product packaging. Simple Drape is sold at Bed, Bath & Beyond, Lowes, Target, Neiman Marcus, and other retailers. I’ll be making appearances at trade shows for Softline during 2014 as well.
If you’re not familiar with the organization, they do great work:
Optimist International is an association of more than 2,900 Optimist Clubs around the world dedicated to “Bringing Out the Best in Kids.” Adult volunteers join Optimist Clubs to conduct positive service projects in their communities aimed at providing a helping hand to youth. With their upbeat attitude, Optimist Club members help empower young people to be the best that they can be.
Each Optimist Club determines the needs of the young people in its community and conducts programs to meet those needs. Every year, Optimists conduct 65,000 service projects and serve well over six million young people.
I visited Gold’s Gym in Venice last year before what I thought would be my last two bodybuilding competitions. (Who was I kidding? I love to compete.) In this video, I share some important biomechanics basics. If you have questions or feedback, leave a comment.
Savannah Rose Neveux, the little girl in the 1991 photo on left, grew up to be the fitness model and healthy eating/exercise expert in the photo on the right. Her father, famed photographer Michael Neveux, took both shots. Savannah’s website, Muffin Topless, is full of information and resources to help women get in shape.
