Gadgets and Gizmos aplenty with Verizon

Technology. There is no shortage of gizmos and gadgets out there to make our lives easier in some way, small or large. When I was asked to demo a few of these cool products for Verizon, I knew I wanted to. I was chosen to demo three Verizon products for “Back to School” for the duration of one month. Here is what they sent, and what I thought!


 

JBL by HARMAN | LINK 10 Voice activated portable speaker featuring Google Assistant

As a current Amazon/Alexa user…… getting to try out the Google Assistant with the JBL LINK 10 was a lot of fun! Set up was extremely easy and I was able to link my Spotify account right away, something I utilize EVERY SINGLE DAY. I am deeply music obsessed and focused. I’ll say that remembering to say “Hey, Google” or “OK Google” took some time. The ease of just having to say…. “Alexa” has clearly stuck with me. Once I got it down though, it works really well! My kiddo loves asking “Hey, Google…. play Eye of the Tiger.” Hahaha ok, that request was new this past week but oh so much fun! We have a whole dance montage video of some moves that he learned at school for that song. 😉 Really it’s just some strong fist in the air action and a few overly cute boxing moves. Love that boy! Anyway, the sound is good and usability has been good as well.

 


Mophie Powerstation XL | Quick charge external battery

When it comes to portable chargers, Mophie is a brand that always comes to mind! We have a smaller one, and we’ve been extremely happy with it. Being able to use the Mophie Powerstation XL was a very nice upgrade over the last month, and I’m sold on the fact that I WILL need to purchase one for our family! Once a week I have a creative meeting with my best friend where we both use our laptops and phones consistently, and this power station XL has been a huge lifesaver when the wall plug is too far from our table or when I just want to charge my phone in a hurry or while out running errands!

 


Tile Mate

If you have never heard of these, you should definitely look them up! You attach them to keys, bags, and it even adheres to flat surfaces. The setup was so easy, and it has helped me find my phone on more days than I can count. I keep my phone on silent, so you can imagine how hard it is to locate a vibrating phone when I ask my husband to call it! The Tile RINGS no matter what! Two small presses of my tile that I keep on my keys, and my phone plays a melody loud enough for me to locate fast! It’s just a really cool product and for as long as I’ve known about it, I never really understood how cool it was until I tried it out. AND I just found this pretty option!

 

*Thanks to Verizon for sending these products for Thefamilyof3 to demo! This is not a paid advertisement. The views expressed are completely authentic and offered simply in exchange for a one month in home demo.

Versatile Fashion Pt. 1: 1 Skirt 5 Ways

1 skirt 5 ways: If you are anything like me, versatile pieces take up a large part of your wardrobe! I need my clothes to take me through each season if possible, so I can mix and match to create new looks all the time! I tend to hold onto my clothes for years so I really look for items that can work hard for me and that flatter my petite 5’2 figure.

When I found this rust colored corduroy skirt with buttons, I knew I had to have it! There is just something about this color that calls my name! This length of skirt really helps me feel as tall as possible and this one especially feels sophisticated, fun, and is SO versatile! I could have done 10, 15, 25 looks or MORE, honestly! I am really looking forward to styling this skirt a TON this fall! I’m not a celebrity, so there’s no “one and done” around here when it comes to fashion! 😉 When I love something, I wear it like crazy!

SO, here it is: 1 skirt, 5 ways.

I can envision SO many date night variations with this skirt and intend to try them out for sure!
