Tech Tuesday: Spring into Travel Adventures with Verizon Tech

Verizon Tech provided me with products for the purpose of testing and sharing my experience. All opinions expressed in this post are 100% my own.

If you are planning a spring (or summer) getaway, what are you packing as you plan your travel adventure? I absolutely must pack technology even when vacations are a time to get away from it all. There’s always a plan to blog more (especially now that I have a second blog), so I do usually bring my computer, but the technology I must bring along is usually geared toward making the trip a bit more hassle-free and fun, bonus points if it’s an active trip! keep reading

Ripple Safety Device

Disclaimer: I received product/service in exchange for this post about the Ripple safety device. All opinions are 100% my own.

When I first was told about the Ripple Safety Device, my mind went straight to where most of my focus has been lately – to running. I even blogged about it over on mrsgregwillis the other day with that exact focus. But in thinking more about it, Ripple isn’t just for keeping runners safe, it’s great for anyone who needs to feel safe and could be a great device to give your kids as you start letting them “have some wings”. keep reading

Me and the Pittsburgh Xfinity Moms

This post is part of the Xfinity Moms program and is brought to you by Comcast and Xfinity.

Xfinity Moms

I am a modern mom, so when Dana asked me to join her and four other mom bloggers from Pittsburgh at Comcast’s McCandless Crossing Xfinity store, it was an obvious YES. Sure, I had 500 other things going on that week, but I knew this event (about ways to connect your family with technology) was going to make it all worth it. And oh, did it. keep reading

Gadget Grab

+

If you are like me and rely on your phone or tablet to view your favorite recipes or serve as a second screen while you blog (or work your business), the Gadget Grab™ just might be a tool for you.

This tool is handy for holding your devices so you can be hands free (at home – I wouldn’t recommend it in the car). There are two sizes, one for phones and one for tablets. The Gadget Grab is available online at getgadgetgrab.com or in US retailers like Bed Bath & Beyond (find more on their Facebook page) keep reading

Deal Alert: Speck the Halls

You probably know I am kinda addicted to my cell phone, and Greg is addicted to saving money. The two worlds are colliding this month as Speck Products is bringing month-long holiday deals our way with their Speck the Halls promotion.

For example, here’s what you’ve missed if you haven’t been heading over to speckproducts.com or following them on Twitter (@speckproducts)… keep reading

Protect with Speck

Just in time for Father’s Day, Speck Products has some options to protect your guy’s mobile devices while on the go.

As a stay-at-home dad, Greg typically keeps his iPad Mini handy for the meltdown moments that might happen while out and about with Evan and Ari. And let’s be for real – he likes to have it for trips, too. While I love the man, he’s dropped his share of devices (hence why he didn’t have a smartphone until recent). (And he is not alone…more on that below.) keep reading
