Self-Love box
The self-love box has everything in it to pamper yourself including the roses. It’s to help get through depression, Tragedies and so forth. I created it for people who can’t afford counseling or can’t seem to Escape the terrible moments in life that they stand in. It can also be used simply for self-love without the Tragedies. It can be used as gifts or romantic scenes. This box is a momentary escape from stress, pain and suffering. It is used to create a place of peace, relaxation and to boost self worth.

Home Fax
Home Fax is a similar tool to Car Fax, however this mobile app will allow all home owners to keep track of major damages, repairs/updates and maintenance reminders to prevent major concerns in a home by the click of a button. This will also allow all Loan Officers and Realtors to keep in contact with their clients at a free rate. This will also lower the risk of any liability issues when it comes to buying/selling home due to the fact that everything would be captured by the current owner by the click of a button.
