Recently, on the Lauren's Hope blog, we discussed some ideas for living a safer life in 2014. We discussed the basics: Creating emergency plans and kits, taking care of safety maintenance at home, keeping cars in good repair, writing down and selectively sharing your most pertinent information, and, of course, wearing medical alert jewlery or ICE and Caregiver IDs. So today, in Part 2 of our safety series, we're focusing on those medical IDs and offering some ways to make your medical ID jewelry keep you even safer as you boost your safety factor this coming year.

The winter holidays are traditionally a time of peace, love, compassion, and good will. They're also a time for celebrations, special meals, family gatherings, excitement, travel, bright lights, voices raised in song, and so many other happy events and treats. When living with autism and related challenges, however, the holidays can be more stressful than anything else. With some good planning, however, the holidays will likely never be stress-free, but they can be more manageable. To that end, we've gatethered some parent-tested tips for making the holidays a bit smoother for families with autism other special needs.
Rose gold made a big comeback in 2013, appearing in fabulously designed rings, watches, earrings, necklaces, bracelets, and yes, even medical alert jewelry. Here at Lauren's Hope, we introduced several new rose gold toned medical ID pieces this year, capping it off with our exclusive Rosie cuff. Rosie combines the style and functionality of a stainless steel medical ID cuff with the beauty of rose gold so your medical ID can do its job while still pairing perfectly with your other favorite jewelry pieces.
I woke up yesterday to my six-year-old saying, "Mommy!! It's December!! Yesterday, it was November, but now it's December!" Kids seem infinitely excited about the passing of seasons. Adults, though, we seem consistently surprised. How often do you hear some version of, "Can you believe it's December already?! Where did the year go?" Time just flies by, each year somehow faster than the last. So, knowing this, I'm thinking even though it's the first week of December, it's time to talk about New Year's Resolutions!

People often want to wear the colors associated with their conditions. For example, here at Lauren's Hope, we receive messages from people with Multiple Sclerosis asking for more orange bracelets and from people with Addison's Disease asking for more light blue bracelets. People with Epilepsy request purple, as do those with lupus and fibromyalgia. Wearing the color associated with one's condition is an empowering choice, one that helps people raise awareness in a positive, intentional way.
