My mom has always said that she would love to visit the moon. Now, with the help of Lifeship, you can send your loved ones to the moon, that is, their DNA at least. How cool is that?
For the lucky few (thousand) who receive the gift of Lifeship, their DNA is carefully imprinted in artificial amber and sent on a rocket to the moon. Sharing lunar landings with NASA, LifeShip has secured invaluable space on several missions, including several that orbit the earth and a select few that can become a "shooting star."
Think of this as any popular genetic program, but reversed. LifeShip is miraculously preserving our human DNA on the outermost reaches of the planet. It's a fun gift that gives all of us the chance to affordably travel in space.

The Virgo Slim + Soft Pillow is Miranda's FAVORITE pillow as it's helped decrease her migraine frequency! She actually lost her original and had to quickly replace because it's so amazing. The Virgo provides a thin layer of cushiony softness without compromising neck alignment, particularly great if you're a stomach sleeper.
While great for stomach sleepers, quite a few back sleepers also love it too. It's a thinner, low-profile pillow that is pliable enough to fold. Although the Virgo has less fill, the loft-quality of its down means it continues to lift the head.
This is a very light and super-soft pillow that's great for cuddling. However, if you prefer a pillow with some substance and heft, this is likely not the pillow for you -- but don't worry as SLUMBR has some other great options too so check out their Vela or Orion.
This ergonomic foot rest works to provide ultimate comfort and firm support at all day long. It's a great choice to use at work, home, or while traveling. Your feet (and your back) will love this breathable mesh ErgoFoam foot rest.
The premium mesh cover wicks moisture away from your feet, keeping you cool and dry for all day comfort. Plus, it’s pet-friendly as it's super easy to clean compared to other fabric foot rests.
