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. ๐Ÿ˜‰ 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.

Smart Coffee – A Review

Coffee. Smart Coffee. Magic Coffee. I mean, if you’re a coffee drinker, these don’t seem like silly words to describe coffee. DUH, right?!!?! It could literally be called Grass Coffee, and I’d likely give it a try! I mean….. COFFEE!!!! Who can resist?! ๐Ÿ˜‰

I know, I know…… chill out with the obsessive coffee love, lady!
In all seriousness though, ๐Ÿ˜‰ my dear friend Rebecca approached me a while ago (sorry girl!) and asked if I’d like to try this new coffee product that promises a host of really exciting things! I just couldn’t turn down trying something that has been causing such a big buzz!

Let me start with some of the facts from revital U:

What’s inย revital U Coffee?ย Our smart coffee was created with you in mind. We’ve combined an amazing taste with hand picked ingredients, to give you only the best. Feel energized after only one cup!

Select 100% Arabica Coffee:ย This premium imported base, gives our instant coffee a great taste.

L-Theanine:ย  Most commonly found in green tea, this ingredient helps keep your mood up!

Octodrine:ย An ingredient that boosts and supports the body’s various metabolic functions.

Chromium Polynicotinate:ย This mineral regulates your blood sugar, while also controlling your energy levels and weight.

SO……. the BIGGEST motivators for me were the mood boosting, improved mental focus, and increased energy! I know coffee does a bit of that already, but also found out after a little bit of research, that people were really seeing some incredible changes by just having one cup of this coffee a day! It was worth a try!

Talk about a boost! It really worked! A bit of extra energy, and almost a pep in my step! I was able to focus in on some small organizational tasks around the house that I had been avoiding…. (blah!) but managed to do them out of WANT TO, not even HAVE TO! It was really cool! As far as weight loss, for me that’s hard to pinpoint. I follow a pretty healthy diet and have for the last couple of years (no dairy, no gluten! *Save for the random moments each month when the weekend donut run is just toooooooo yummy to pass up, and the pizza smells entirely too delicious!) I also spend a good amount of time each week at the gym!

I WILL say though, that my friend Rebecca is experiencing the weight loss results personally and through her friends and customers! I’ve seen what this product is doing for people and it’s so cool!

Let’s talk flavor….. SO, there are actual recipes out there to add your tiny scoop of revital U to! And I’ve read that even the small scoop mixed into hot water (like instant coffee….) tastes pretty great on its’ own! Here are some ways that folks are using it: hot chocolate, shakes, smoothies, in their oatmeal, and even mixed into yogurt! The website has these customer recipes which I think is really neat! For me, I add a scoop of revital U to my coffee mug, add my one packet of Stevia, pour my hot coffee in, then add my favorite almond milk creamer! YUM! Simple is always BEST for me….. especially in the mornings ๐Ÿ˜‰

Cost….. $39.99 per tub/1 month supply on auto ship which can be adjusted and canceled after two months if needed. $49.99 retail per tub/1 month supply. I know any kind of MLM, or network marketing can scare people off….. and I’ve been there. I’ve also bought into a few of these companies when I’ve loved the brand, and product too much NOT to! Revital U is not scary! Their system is simple, fuss free, and you don’t have to pay an arm and a leg for the product! At $39.99, you are paying $1.33 a day for your coffee. Where are my Starbucks people??? I don’t know about you guys, but my SBux grande vanilla latte is $3.85 plus an extra $ .60 with almond milk…. so dumb. And beyond JUST coffee, THIS coffee is adding more than just a caffeine buzz to your day! You could have extra energy, lose some weight, experience a more focused day…… and just feel GOOD!
Extra cool part… you can get a pack of 3 samples first if you want to try before you get a tub!
———-> HEREย is where you can grab your pack of 3 samples for $4.87 (just the cost of shipping.)

THIS is my beautiful friend Rebecca <3

PLEASE tell her that The Family of 3 sent you!! And COME BACK and let me know what you think!!!!!

Wooden Wrist Watch

Welcome Spring

Welcome Spring – Transitioning your look with colorful, statement making accessories.

Oh Spring….. you have my heart! Cool days, bright sunshine, green grass, flowers, and patios…… it is the perfect season, if you ask me! A few days ago, I met my bestie Jess for one of these cool, bright, patio enjoying days! Cupcakes and coffee, yes please!! BIRD Bakery is just the cutest! A yummy almond milk vanilla latte, my DIVINE gluten free vanilla cupcake, one of my very favorite people, and an adorable patio….. I was (and AM) SOLD!! I’ll drive to Dallas every day for that, thank you!! I won’t lie though….. watching Troy Aikman walk right in front of me as I parked my car was a fun perk too! ๐Ÿ™‚

We were even able to squeeze in a few photos after cupcakes, with my new camera…. Hello Canon! My Nikon has been very good to me, but after 10 years I decided to make a switch I have dreamt about for at least, half of my career!

One of my favorite parts about Spring is adding new, fun, and colorful accessories, with my seasonal (still a bit chilly outside) outfits! For this look, I immediately knew I had to wear my newest teal, fringe earrings! I’m only sad that this color isn’t available for you guys right now…. but I am linking LOTS of beautiful options that are all in the same style! If you ever need accessory help, I am SO your girl!! (*Internet shopping fanatic*) (oooops) lol

Besides having my camera turned on me, thank you Jess (She’s so awesome!!!)…… I also shot her cool/cute look for the day! She is seriously SO gorgeous, and always puts the coolest looks together! If you’re new here…. she is a designer, stylist, and online boutique owner….and you HAVE to get to know her! She is doing it all, and is the quintessential #momboss and my true blue soul sister!! <3

Lifestyle – Breakfast with Sis Podcast

I am going to call this one of my life highlights. A blip of time that shined for me and felt really special. I was a guest on a podcast. A podcast called ‘Breakfast with Sis’. Two of my favorite people run this fun podcast, and it was such an honor to be on with them! We started the morning with a photography session to capture this adorable father/daughter duo for promotional purposes and it was so much fun! Here is the first sneak peek!!!

.

Once we finished the photo session, we headed back in to Chick-fil-A (have I mentioned their intense love for the Chick?) and had our breakfast before recording the podcast. It was truly, SO much fun, and I would love for you to check it out when you can! It’s a perfect listen for a workout, drive to work, or anytime you can spare about 50 minutes ๐Ÿ˜‰ I think I may have the ‘on air’ bug, because I really, REALLY want to do it again!
Breakfast with Sis – episode 31 with @Thefamilyof3

After the podcast, we all drove over to Alli K Designs newest Dallas wall(s) mural in Uptown! Here are some pictures from our trip over!

Alli K Design is such an incredible artist and it has been a whirlwind few years for her! Watching her grow this business and see her success has been incredibly fun! You should follow along, because who doesn’t love florals?! ๐Ÿ˜‰
