Spend less and still look like a million bucks with Paparazzi Jewelry {#Giveaway ends 10/11/15}

If you had asked me a could of years ago if I loved jewelry, I would probably say ‘sure, whatever’. Today? I can’t get enough. I have been introduced to Paparazzi Jewelry and I have to admit … I’m an addict. I love it so much! Why spend tons of money on beautiful jewelry when […]

Our first cruise with @CarnivalCruise! #Travel #VZWBuzz #Wedding #CarnivalCruise

Recently, my oldest daughter and I went on a 7 night cruise with Frank & Shannon from The Mommy-Files for her wedding. Neither of us have never been on a cruise, so we weren’t sure what to expect. I did a lot of research ranging from what to pack, checking out port locations for excursions, […]

Enjoy a #Staycation in Des Moines, Iowa at @EmbassySuites (Our family fun weekend!)

We were asked by Embassy Suites if our family would like to experience a family staycation. I’ve never really been on a staycation, so we were eager to check it out and have a family fun time! We chose to visit Des Moines, Iowa since it’s relatively close for us to drive to. We loaded […]

My #VZWBuzz @Verizon phone & tablet saved us during storms, hail & a tornado.

This month’s post for Verizon was originally planned to be something totally different from what I’m about to post to you all right now. I originally wanted to show you some amazing features that I recently learned, however I thought I would take a bit of a turn. Ready for it? It seems that my […]

Protect your iPad Mini with Protective Cases from Tech 21

Whether I’m at home or on the go, I always have my iPad mini with me. It’s thin so I’m always afraid it will snap in half, crack or get a ding in it from all the things that I have in my bag. I was able to try out a case from Tech 21 […]

Parent Happy, Kid Friendly – Kidoodle TV #Review #MC #Sponsored

I participated in a Blogger Activation on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Kidoodle.TV. I received a promotional item and a free trial as a thank you for participating. My kids are pretty technically savvy and love to play games and watch their favorite shows on the iPad or computer, but I haven’t been able to monitor what […]

The @Sprint LG G2 has blown me away! #SprintMom #MC #Sponsored

I participated in an Ambassador Program on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Sprint. I received product samples to facilitate my review. When I am in the market for a phone, I do some pretty in depth research. First off, what do I want from a cell phone? Do I want to be able to game from […]

At home & on the go with the Motorola MBP34 Video Baby Monitor

You don’t have to be a new parent to a newborn to need and to use a baby monitor, especially a video baby monitor. While my kids are older now, we did use baby monitors when they were babies, but we still use baby monitors, as well as video baby monitors in our house. We […]

Internet everywhere with @Sprint’s NETGEAR Zing Mobile Hotspot #SprintMom #Sponsored

I participated in an Ambassador Program on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Sprint. I received product samples to facilitate my review.   I am always on the go. Like…. always. While it’s convenient to have my cell phone with me, that tiny screen gets a wee bit annoying to stare at when I’m trying to use […]

Peaceful Sleep with @Cloud_b Tranquil Turtle #Giveaway {Ends 9/11}

Do your kids like to sleep with a night light on or do they like to have some music or a soft sound going in the background? My kids aren’t babies anymore; they are 8 and almost 6, but as babies and at their ages now they still love a night light and something going […]

iLuv my Snoopy Folio for iPad mini!

Everywhere that I go, my iPad mini goes with me. I love the size and it’s so easy to toss in my purse and run errands, get groceries and travel with. With that said, I have to protect my investment but I also like to have fun with it with fun cases and protection for […]

Rayovac 7 Hour Power is a lifesaver!

I’ve been stranded a time of two (ok, so it’s more than I can count) without power. My devices are a priority when I travel, and when there’s not an outlet around, I tend to spaz out a bit. Ok, so I go in full blown freak out mode. While it’s nice to have a […]

I stay in sync with Office 365 Home Premium

I am constantly on the go. If it’s not a media event, then it’s for family travels. I have more devices that I have on a daily basis, and that I travel with… hubby says that I could probably power a small town. I have my PC laptop, MacBook, iPad, and Android phone, but regardless […]

Rayovac gave us Instant Power during a tornado & power outage! {New Power Packs!}

Last week, the kids and I were stranded right smack dab in the middle of the El Reno, Oklahoma tornadoes. Scared doesn’t even begin to describe the thoughts and feelings that were flowing through my body and through my kids’ minds. When we were alerted to evacuate our hotel rooms and head immediately to the […]

I’m a Caboodles ‘Go-Getter’!

I travel a lot… like, a whole lot. A lot is for business, but we also travel a lot as a family. When you live 6 hours away from one part of the family and 14 hours away from the other half of the family, there tends to be a lot of going here and […]

Posy Lane Ballet Shoes Backpack

School is already back in full swing. I remember when we were shopping for back to school needs, the one thing that I like (as a parent) are to look for things that aren’t your typical school items. For the kids’, we like to look for unique items like clothes, shoes and even backpacks. I […]

I took a Skype Seven-Day Challenge!

We live in the Midwest and while we like living here, we are pretty far away from both of our families and friends, so we do what we can to keep in touch and keep our families close in contact. I have been working with Mom Central and Skype to do a Skype Seven-Day Challenge […]

Travel in style with Brookstone’s Dash 20″ Upright Wheeled Luggage

I travel a lot. OK, so I travel a whooooole lot. I cannot begin to tell you how many suitcases that I have, yet I don’t like any of them. The main reason is because they are too heavy, too bulky, my ‘carry-on’ won’t fit in the overhead bin or they are just plain ugly. […]

Wallet Security while Traveling

How NOT to lose your wallet while traveling. Yes, I’ve lost my wallet a number of times. It’s challenging to get through TSA at the airport with no ID, no driver’s license, no credit cards, no cash. Short story: Drill hole in flat wallet, zip tie (melt zip closure to enforce security) attach key ring, […]

Traveling with our Verizon xyboard

We have been on the go all summer. When we travel, we travel with just about any toy, book and electronic that we can to keep the kids entertained on road trips. While we’ve been reviewing  the Motorola xyboard powered by Verizon’s 4G service, we thought we’d download a few things that would allow us […]

We’re back from Palace Resorts ~ Moon Palace!

I am so stinking excited to share with you our recent trip to Cancun to visit the Palace Resorts Moon Palace Golf & Spa Resort! We’ve had a whirlwind past 3 weeks, so bear with me to get emails replied to, winners drawn and posts live. While being in Texas for a week to visit […]

Favorite Apps for Android & Motorola xyBoard

A couple of weeks ago, I announced that I was a Verizon Midwest Savvy Saver and I received a Verizon powered Motorola xyboard to test out and explore all options that it has. I will go in to even more details with it on the go as we travel at the end of the month, […]

Infantino HappiTaps & App Review for iPod touch & iPhone

There’s no doubt that our family loves technology. Wherever we go, something comes with us; iPod, iPad, gaming devices – you name it, we take it. The kids love their iPod’s, but I am always scared that one will drop and crack. This is where HappiTaps comes in to play to help our travels keep […]

3M Privacy iPad screen

I travel quite a bit. This ranges from holiday family travel, personal out of state travel and quite a bit of media travels. I always take my iPad with me and when I am on an airplane, it’s kind of hard to get work done and type without the person directly next to me gazing […]

NagihanDesigns Custom Laptop Sleeve Case for my Sony VAIO *Love It!*

Anytime I travel, I take my Sony VAIO with me. This is so much easier to travel with than taking my full size and heavy laptop. Well, when I travel, I don’t want it to get scratched or beat up while it’s in my purse or carry on. I was blessed to have an opportunity […]

I love traveling thanks to Brookstone Compact Rolling Traveler!

I travel…. A….. lot! There are times that I will fly for an overnight media event, or it may be a 2 day media event, or even a week away road trip. With many trips, I need that perfect suitcase for the event. While I have a carry on suitcase, there are times that I […]

Master Lock 5900D Portable Safe

I travel a lot. With those travels, come toting along small electronics, cash, credit cards and valuables such as jewelry. Most hotels will have a safe for you to use while you are staying, but what I have been looking for is something that I can take with me, that has my own combination and […]

Traveling with our Bounce House – Portable fun!

Just last month, I posted about our new bounce house. I cannot begin to tell you how much we love and have been using it. Seriously one of the best inventions ever! This month, I wanted to share with you how easy it is to travel with Inflatable Bouncers. While it is a nice size […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Miriam flat from Naturalizer

Most women go shoe crazy over heels or boots, but I go ga-ga over flats. I have always loved flats because I am tall and didn’t want to tower over people, but I really got in to wearing flats about 5 years ago. Those cute and unique styles really catch my eye. I was given […]

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 […]

ClamCase for the iPad {iPad Keyboard} – Love it!

  Anytime I travel for a media event, or even for a personal travel, I love to travel with my iPad. While I love my laptop for home use, it’s just not that convenient to travel with as much as I do. Going through security, pulling out the big heavy laptop, putting it in its […]

The Amazing Pizza Machine: Omaha, NE – Family Fun, Dining & Entertainment!

We live in the Midwest, in a pretty small town, but we frequent Omaha quite a bit. This ranges from doctor visits, shopping or just for a family day out. I went on a hunt to see what fun family restaurants there were out there. I can count how many I found on the internet […]

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*

There’s no denying that my iPhone is always with me. I use it for tweeting, Facebook, moderate comments on my blog, and even taking pictures at that random moment of my family. When I travel for my blog and media events, I like to have a custom iPhone case on my iPhone that represents who […]

My Pillow Pets: Ms Lady Bug *Your Choice! Giveaway!* {Closed}

Of all the things that my kids have, and that I have, one of our favorites has to be Pillow Pets. If you haven’t seen these yet, you are truly missing out! We had the chance to see a new Pillow Pet that we haven’t seen before. I have to show you some fun Pillow […]

Thank you @Boingo!

I have been in Bolingbrook, IL for a Wilton event {Wilton Mom reTreat} and when I got to the airport to fly back home, I was able to sit for a while, relax and surf the net. Well, I thought I’d be able to surf when I wasn’t able to log in to my Boingo […]

XtremeMac: InCharge Universal InCharge Home USB Charger

No doubt about it, I have a lot of electronics in my home that I use here at home, for my blog and for traveling media events. I feel like I am constantly in a tangled war with chargers, USB cables, charging an iPad here, charging a Blackberry in another outlet and don’t even get […]

Site-Seeing around Harbour Town

Earlier this month, I had the pleasure to go to Hilton Head Island for Party City to learn more about their party planning ideas and affordable products. I had some down time, so I went site-seeing and thought I’d share with you the amazing areas that I went to. Friday afternoon, we had lunch at […]

Vapur .5L Anti-Bottle – The perfect travel must have!

Anytime I travel, I always take an empty water bottle with me. I usually stick it in my purse so once I get past security, I can fill it up and not have to waste money on buying water in the airport. That can get expensive with as much water as I drink! I was […]

Boingo Wi-Fi: Perfect for travelers!

I travel quite a bit, ranging from media events to family travels. Most of the time, I’ll travel with my iPad. While my iPad does have Wi-Fi on it, not all locations or airports that I fly through has free airport wireless Internet. There are times when I will write a post or check my […]
