Earloomz asks you to 'Be Aware' and push for hands-free laws in your state

Have you ever had a close call with a distracted driver, one more interested in their cell phone conversation than paying attention to the road and driving?  It's scary.  Someone holding a phone to hear ear may not turn their head far enough to get a good view of the roadway to make turns or lane changes.  Someone texting is not looking at traffic, but the buttons that they are pushing on their phone.  Fact:  60% of drivers polled recently admitted that they use their cell phones while driving.  Earloomz, a company that manufactures fashionable Bluetooth devices, is asking you to 'Be Aware', go hands free, and to push for hands-free legislation in your state if there are no hands-free laws already enacted.

You don't have to feel like you look like 7 of 9 of Star Trek fame if you wear a Bluetooth device.  Earloomz offers many fashionable Bluetooth devices to help you feel fashion forward while doing the responsible thing by going hands-free while driving.  Are you a fan of Hello Kitty?  Earloomz has a Hello Kitty Bluetooth just for you.  Whether you want your hands-free device to sport your favorite team, your country's flag, a cartoon character, a leopard print, or more, you're sure to find a unique Bluetooth that is an expression of you.

Hubby can look like 7 of 9 with his Bluetooth... I'll look like a 10 with mine!
Earloomz sent me a leopard print Bluetooth for review.  One of the many things I loved about the Bluetooth (other than the design) was that it had a USB plug.  That means I can plug it into my computer to charge, my Powermat, or the splitter in my car.  I won't have to worry about finding a place to charge it.  I had clarity too and my husband had no problems hearing me when I talked to him while using it. I really like the unique design and now I don't have to worry about grabbing the wrong Bluetooth from the charger since mine looked just like my husband's. 

Buy it!   Visit and browse their selections.  Bluetooth devices are approximately $60.  I even found one for a Star Trek fan!

Win it!  One lucky reader will win the same Earloomz Bluetooth that I received to review (brown leopard print).  This giveaway will run through 9/25/2011 at 11:59 PM, with the winner being drawn via on or about 9/26/2011.  The winner will have 48 hours to respond to an email seeking shipping information.  If winner does not respond within that time frame, a different winner will be selected.  This giveaway is open to US residents only, who are 18 or older.

Disclosure:  Earloomz provided me with a product sample and information to facilitate this review and will provide the winner with the same brown leopard print Bluetooth that I received.  This post is uncompensated and the opinions are my own.  I believe in going hands-free because I've had a few close calls (one with a tractor trailer on I-95 on the way back from Disney) because the driver was yacking away on their phone and didn't have both hands on the wheel.  Save a life and go hands-free!
