Walmart Family Mobile – a Cheap Wireless Plan option


I am a member of the Collective Bias®  Social Fabric® Community.  This shop for affordable, no-contract cell phone service has been compensated as part of a social shopper insights study for Collective Bias and their client.
At the beginning of the summer, I set myself a goal – to look for a mobile phone that offered [...]

Give the gift of #BarbiePhotoFashion for the holidays!


I’ve seen it mentioned a few times in both the online and traditional media so far this holiday season – that the Barbie Photo Fashion Doll is one of the hottest gift ideas this holiday season. And I can definitely understand why – it’s certainly a huge hit around our house. In fact I know [...]

#BarbiePhotoFashion Doll for Fall-Time Fun


Last month I reviewed the Barbie Photo Fashion fun doll that’s been a big hit in our house with my 9-year-old and her sisters. The girls love taking pictures of anything and everything (although mostly of each other and our dog, who’s always content to pose for them, lol) and seeing how creative they can [...]

Review: #BarbiePhotoFashion Doll (aka my college reunion through my 9yo’s lens)


Barbie + fashion + photos + technology = tons of fun! Especially for my 9-year-old daughter, who is right in the thick of loving everything to do with all of those things. So when I had the chance for her to try out the new Barbie Photo Fashion Doll, she was ecstatic to combine all [...]

Review: VTech LS6475-3 Multi-Tasking Headset Phone System


Once a year it happens… That wonderful day when I’m awakened by a parade of kids filing into my bedroom bearing breakfast and assorted handmade gifts, and sometimes even a card if Ron’s on top of things. This year added something new to the mix – the girls thought it would be fun to let [...]

The HTC Rhyme – a phone for shutterbugs


Ask anybody who knows me and they’ll tell you that I take a ton of photos. Too many, at least according to my husband – he tends to wince when he sees the camera in my hand. Although lately, I tend to take so many pictures on my phone, that he never even realizes what [...]

Review: D-Link DCS 932L Wireless Day & Night Home Network Camera


My oldest daughter was born right about at the time when video baby monitors were starting to appear in stores. They weren’t very common and were quite expensive, but I was intrigued by the idea of being able to not only hear, but watch my baby sleeping to make sure that everything was ok whenever [...]

Giveaway: Kodak Pulse Digital Frame (CLOSED)


Last year I had the opportunity during the annual BlogHer conference to get to know one of the Kodak products up close – the Easyshare M580 camera. And afterward, I also had the chance to give one away here, which was a lot of fun. And now I get to have fun again – this [...]

Review: Energizer Induction Charger for iPhone & Blackberry


Nowadays it seems like I hardly leave the house without my iPhone. Actually, ‘seems’ probably isn’t totally accurate – I rarely leave the house without it and have been known to turn around and go back for my phone if I’m still on our street or haven’t left the neighborhood yet. Yes, I’m a bit [...]

Review and Giveaway: Literati e-Reader (CLOSED)


Before I had kids, I was a book-reading fiend. It wasn’t uncommon for me to come home from work, sit down with whatever book I happened to be in the middle of at the moment (or start something new), and not get up until I’d finished it – or it got too late to stay [...]

Review and Giveaway: Kodak EasyShare M580 Digital Camera (CLOSED)


Late this past summer, I was so fortunate to be able to attend the 2010 BlogHer Conference in New York City. It was an amazing experience all around (one that I’ll finally be blogging more about soon too) but one of the things that I was the most looking forward to was an event that [...]

Review: VTech DS6321-3 cordless phone system


I remember when I got my very first telephone – I was in high school and since my bedroom happened to be equipped with a phone jack (I think the previous owners used it as a sewing room), my mom finally told me that I could get a phone of my own to keep in [...]

Review: Epson Artisan 810 All-in-One


In late 2008, I reviewed one of Epson’s newest (at the time) all-in-one printers – the Artisan 700. And after a year, we were still just as happy with the quality of printing, the ease of use and the overall functions of the printer – especially the built-in wi-fi that lets me sit out here [...]

Review: chicBuds – Breast Cancer Awareness Edition


It’s October again, and like last year, I’m going to be spotlighting some of the products out there which are ‘going pink’ to help awareness (and funds) to help with the fight against breast cancer. Some companies simply turn existing products ‘pink’ for the month of October – but others offer both the product, and [...]

Lunch Your Tummy Right – here at Tulip Time (and Flip Cam Giveaway!)


This week there’s been a huge event going on here in West Michigan – the annual Tulip Time Festival in Holland (Michigan, that is). Every spring, the Klompen Dancers come out, people line up for the Volksparade and Kinderparade, and everything of Dutch heritage is celebrated. The City of Holland blooms brightly with hundreds of [...]

Review and Giveaway: SmartShopper


I hate making grocery lists. And yet I love having them – and absolutely need them. Otherwise I tend to get home and realize that I’ve forgotten the 3 most important things that I went to the store for. But the process of going through the fridge and cupboards and actually writing the list takes [...]

Holiday Gift Guide – Review: Audeo Perfect Fit Earphones


Gift Guide Category: Tech/Electronic Gifts

It seems like MP3 players are everywhere these days, as both the technology and prices are getting better and better almost every day. But one thing that many people don’t consider is the effect of these devices on our ears, and our hearing. As we parents look at gift ideas for [...]

Holiday Gift Guide – Review: SweetPea3

Gift Guide Category: Tech/Electronic Gifts

My girls and I love to listen to music. Most often in our van, but the girls love to turn music on in the house to dance to as well. They each have their favorites – and I get very tired sometimes of being asked to play the same songs again [...]

Holiday Gift Guide – Review: Epson Artisan 700


Gift Guide Category: Tech/Electronic Gifts

As a parent, there’s nothing more that I like to do than to take pictures of my kids. In fact, you can see many of them over on my personal blog at Mom of 3 Girls – yes, I tend to be a bit ‘photo happy’ over there at times.  :)  [...]

Review and Giveaway: Kajeet


With the holidays quickly approaching, one of the big gift items that I know is sure to be on just about every tween or teen’s list is a cell phone of their very own. Whether for peace of mind in emergencies, or just to be able to have our own phone lines free and available [...]

Review and Giveaway: Unique Skins


Like many other bloggers, I am – well, addicted to electronic gadgets is probably a good way to put it. From laptop to iPod to Blackberry… When I have extra money to spend, these are the things that I tend to save up for. And there are so many things that you can do to [...]
