One thing that is very important in my line of work is a good computer. Especially one that you can take with you on the go. If you have been following my site for a while, then you know I travel often. I need a computer that is reliable and is easy to use while I am away. The work never ends for me and I am basically always on the clock. So I was really excited to learn about the Google Pixelbook – and the fact that I can save $100 on one at Best Buy from March 25th to April 7th!
Valentine’s Day is right around the corner and so it is time to start brain storming about gifts. Candy and flowers seem to be the go-to for just about anyone, but does everyone really like that? For me personally, I am on a diet so candy is a no go, and flowers die too quickly in my mind. I put together some items that would make great gifts for the whole family.
Something you probably know about me is that I am a gamer. I have been playing video games for over 25 years and am totally blown away by the progress and technological advances that have been made. I enjoy all types of games, but some of my favorites are shooters and RPGs. In order to fully experience these, I have always wanted to get a really good gaming headset. Thanks to Best Buy and Turtle Beach, I now have an incredible set – the Stealth 700 for PS4 Pro & PS4!
My husband is big into the latest and greatest technology. For years, he has been talking about littleBits and how he couldn’t wait to get our young daughters started on coding and creating circuits. He is right when he says this is an ultra important skill for kids to have these days. littleBits use magnets to help kids easily put together circuits for all kinds of inventing. While in LA for the Thor: Ragnarok Event, I had lunch with them to get a hands-on experience with the Star Wars Droid Inventor Kits. My daughters and husband were thrilled when a couple of these kits arrived at our house for them to play with!
I am so excited to let you guys know that I am heading to LA for the #ThorRagnarokEvent with 24 other awesome bloggers in a couple of weeks! Make sure you follow along 10/9 to 10/11 as I do so many cool things including walking the red carpet at the Thor: Ragnarok premiere. I will also be chatting with some of the cast and filmmakers, so if you have any questions, please let me know. That is not all we will be doing though, so check out the full details here.
We are a dog family. There are two of them in our family, a pug named Khaleesi, and a puggle named Sansa (clearly we are Game of Thrones fans). Our pug is great at staying in the yard and causing no issues, but the puggle, who just turned one, likes to push our buttons. She will normally stay in the yard, but she likes to find places to hide that we didn’t even know about. That is why we were really excited to try out the new smart pet tracker, Paby.
Music is really important in my family. We all connect to it in one way or another and constantly have it playing throughout the house. Of course, we have issues with our bluetooth speakers cutting in and out, and trying to get it to play in multiple rooms – but not anymore thanks to Google Chromecast Audio! Now we can play music, seamlessly, throughout the house. We can play it from our phones, tablets, or computers – meaning no more drained cellphone batteries! We love Google Chromecast Audio, and we think you will too! Here are 4 reasons why you need it in your life!
It’s 2017 already, and we are certainly just there with reaching the epitome of technological aggrandizement. Internet is faster than ever, while gadgets are getting more portable. Your child doesn’t need a family computer to connect to the internet anymore, nor do they have to take permission from you before making a phone call, because they can do all that using their personal smartphone.
As a social media influencer, blogger, and someone who is on the internet a lot, I need to make sure that my connection is strong at all times. I am also a huge gamer so when I power on the Playstation4 and settle in for a long gaming session, I don’t want any interruptions. My husband and I are both very technologically savvy and most of our home is a connected home. We have Hue lights, Ring doorbell system, Nest Thermostats, and a Nest Protect. It has been a struggle to find a router that can put up with our internet use. But we found one that not only does it, it exceeded our expectations.
I have had a cellphone since I was about 14 years old – but I had never heard of unlocked smartphones before. I think there are a lot of people out there who have not heard of this before, so I am excited to let you know about it. With a locked cellphone, that means there is no way to switch cellphone companies while you have that phone – even though you pay for it! I know that I had to pay for my smartphone and because I am did so with a certain company, I would need to purchase a new one in order to switch companies.
