Don't get me wrong, I love being a woman, but there's one part I'm not so jazzed about...being physically weaker than men. Even though it's not talked about much in today's society, there's always that underlying threat we get from men, because in the end we know they can kick our butts if push comes to shove.
I've always been one who takes my personal safety very seriously and yes, living in Texas, I do have a gun for home protection, but what happens when you're outside the four walls of your home?
How can we as women feel more safe and secure? ila security successfully addresses what was a significant gap in the area of stylish female safety and personal security accessories and they allowed me to review both the ila Sport and ila Dusk products. Keep reading to learn more!

Of course, with the new year and my new year's resolution to lose 10 pounds, fitness has become a greater priority for me. This means that I will be taking it to the streets of my neighborhood with some vigorous walking and jogging. Thankfully, ila security even thought to design a stylish and functional way for us gals to be protected while on the move, where carrying a handbag is impossible.
The ila Sport is a multi-functional pedometer that includes both a calorie counter and step counter. When activated, it emits a high-decibel siren. It's extremely light and easy to carry...just clip it directly to your waistband and go. The pedometer will display distance traveled and calories burned. It even has a clock and a built-in backlight too.
- 130 dB personal alarm and fitness accessory in one
- Give you that extra confidence when jogging or walking at night
- Can be clipped to a belt or clothing or simply carried in your hand
Since I do like to run as a way to stay fit, I'm grateful to have the ila Sport. In Texas, the weather is so warm during the day that the only comfortable time to run most of the year is at night. With the ila Sport, I can track my daily progress and feel safer while I exercise. If you're one of the millions of women who have vowed to exercise more in the new year, then by all means, take the ila Sport along for company!
The ila Dusk is an innovative personal security alarm that's designed to be kept on display as a fashion accessory – right where you need it. Clip to your handbag, or use as a keyring, but don’t be misled by its shiny good looks. In a threatening situation, just pull the chain. You’ll activate an ear-piercing 130Db female scream that research has shown others are more likely to respond to than a traditional alarm, as well as disorientating an attacker.
It is very lightweight and uses 4 "LR43" batteries (included) which offers three years worth of battery life. I love using the clasp it comes with to attach the ila Dusk to my purse. Since I ALWAYS have my purse with me, I know that my ila Dusk will be immediately on hand should I need it. Having a small child makes me feel like even more of a target for crime sometimes, because I am easily distracted and often focused on Riley.
I'm much more at ease now knowing that if I were to feel threatened in any way, I could protect both myself and my child better than before with the ila Dusk personal alarm.
Disclosure: I received the ila Sport and ila Dusk from ila security in order to facilitate my review. No other compensation was received. This product review is based on my own personal experiences with this item and is completely honest and objective.
I'm a former 7th grade Science teacher turned stay-at-home mom that lives in Houston, Texas. I am married to my college sweetheart and have a beautiful daughter named Riley, who definitely keeps me on my toes! I am also involved in starting a small business which would both manufacture and sell an invention that I've patented, called Toothpaste 2 Go. I love interacting with my readers and hope to learn as much about you as you learn about me!
