Step IN the picture! Casio TRYX

I have been without my main camera for a couple of weeks now. While I usually take my Nikon with me everywhere that I go, I have been thinking about looking for something smaller to tote around to prevent that little mishap from happening again, but there just hasn’t been anything that sparked my interest […]

iPod touch + Woogie = Cute & cuddly fun for the iPod touch or iPhone

My kids are just like their mama … they love technology! They love their iPod touches and anytime we travel, whether it’s locally or on a long road trip, they always make sure it’s charged and in their backpack ready to go. What do you do to help protect an investment, such as an iPod […]

Visit Omaha! {Omaha Henry Doorly Zoo}

Last week, my family and I had the pleasure to Omaha’s Henry Doorly Zoo. We have lived in the southwest for 3 years now and we have been to the zoo just once – right when we moved here. The kids were pretty young (3 and almost 1), so they weren’t really too sure about […]

Urbanears Bagis Earphone & Plattan Plus Headphone

With my workout and fitness routine, one thing that keeps me moving is my music on the go. Whether I am out for a run, going for a walk or on an elliptical work out, I like to have headphones that can keep up with me. I had the change to try out a couple […]

On the go with Jif To Go – Garmin GPS, Jif Gift Pack + $50 #Giveaway! {Closed}

This may be summer time, but it is far from a summer vacation with baseball games, practices, sibling fights, and summer traveling. With as much as we travel, I am always looking for easy snacks to take on the go, but I want them to be unlike the traditional snack bags that you see a […]

Where are you? Check in with Moby

Anytime I travel, I like to check in to locations and share it with my main Facebook. At first, I can say that I thought check-in’s were a scream for ‘come stalk me please’, but with as much as I travel, these check-in’s let my family know where I am at and that I made […]

Safe Skies TSA Accepted Luggage Locks #Giveaway {Closed}

I travel a lot. There’s no doubt about that. One thing that I have considered to keep my luggage belongings safe is to get a lock for my suitcase, but we all know how strict the TSA has gotten. Why lock something when the airline security will just snap it off? Well, there is a […]

I am the social media QUEEN! *Iowa Indy Corn 250 at the Iowa Speedway*

Toddy Gear: Toddy Smart Cloth

One of my most important investments that I have purchased for my blog and media travels are my iPad’s. The screen gets dirty and smudges on it, and I’ve been careful at what I use to keep the screen clean and safe. I was asked to try out a product that promised to get the […]

Scosche freeKEY – flexible wireless keyboard

Anytime I travel, my iPad goes with me. There are times where I need a keyboard, but there are also times where I don’t. While I do not carry a briefcase or similar laptop case to carry my iPad, I do carry a purse for it, but I don’t care to have it weighed down […]

PowerSkin: Shock-Absorbing, Battery-Boosting Smartphone Cases *Review* Love it!

Field of Vision – NBC Family Movie Premiers tonight! 6/11/11 7pm central

A few months ago, I had the pleasure to go on a movie set for an upcoming NBC Family Movie that is airing at 7PM Central time. I have always liked the thought of family movie night, but to be honest, I haven’t seen too many that have caught my eye, as well as my […]

Logitech Keyboard Case by ZAGG for iPad 2 & ZAGG Custom iPad 2 Skin

When it comes to media travels, I tote along my iPad everywhere that I go. For me, it’s easier than taking my bulky laptop. With my iPad, I have been pretty much just using my knee to prop it up so that I can type notes from conferences, but that was such a pain. I […]

POP Phone *Review*

When it comes to technology, I love everything in that field. I will admit when I saw one product, I had doubts about it. I know… I know… Never judge a book by the cover, right? If you have an iPhone, why would you need a telephone handset? I giggled at this, but when I […]

Mophie: juice pack plus for iPhone 4

I travel a lot. I keep up with social media while I am at media events and with that said, I go through a lot of battery power on my iPhone. Usually, I will travel with cords and extra power supplies, but when I saw the Mophie, I was eager to check it out and […]

Kelly Moore Posey Photography Camera Bag {CLOSED}

I travel quite a bit for my blog, media events and for family events. I used to carry around a camera bag, diaper bag, a purse and another bag that had some things in it for the kids. Really, 4 bags just for going to run errands? Sounds crazy, but yes. When I travel for […]

Windows Live Writer – Perfect for Image Copywriting for bloggers!

I have had images from my blog, my own personal takings, used without my permission on a few occasions, so copyrighting my images is a huge concern for me, my blog and my family. I can honestly admit that after these occurrences, I have spent hours – sometimes days – to go through my images […]

Case-Mate: Venture Gold iPad Stand Case

I travel quite a bit. One thing that I have learned to make my trips easier, is to travel with my iPad instead of my heavy laptop. I have tried a few cases for my iPad, but nothing has really made me fall in love. I had the chance to check out the Venture Gold […]

My beautiful DIY Case-Mate {Custom iPhone 4 Case} case creation! *Review*

My trip to the Iowa Cornucopia Tour & Living History Farms, Des Moines, Iowa
