Hopping on the Selfie Stick Bandwagon

Hopping on the Selfie Stick Bandwagon


I admit it…I laughed at all the people buying selfie sticks when they first came out. And then it happened. I’m hopping on the selfie stick bandwagon. I recently had the opportunity to purchase a selfie stick at a reduced price in exchange for my honest review. 

Gnome Selfie Stick (1)

It was rough at first as I was sent 2 bad selfie sticks that didn’t seem to work properly.  I will give huge kudos and the “customer service award” to the folks at Gnome Workshop because they could have very easily just said “forget it” and told me to ditch the whole thing, but they sent me a few replacements and now I have 2 working Gnome Workshop Bluetooth Foldable Selfie Sticks.

I know you’ve seen a variety of selfie sticks on the market and here’s what Gnome Workshop’s version has to offer:
– Extendable arm is made with stainless steel, making it sturdy enough to hold larger devices without bending, as well as making it extremely durable
– Easy to use.
– Includes a built in shutter button at the base.
– Rubber Grip makes it very comfortable to hold.
– Collapsable head makes it easily fit in your pocket or bag.
– Extends to 31.4 inches.
– Thumb key at the head of the selfie stick, allows you to lock devices in place at any angle.
– Compatible with most smartphones and cameras, as long as they are bluetooth capable.
– The maxumim extension of the head is 3 and a half inches, enough to fit an iphone 6 plus, with a case on it and a little room left over.
– Rubber coated head prevents scratches
– includes a wrist strap, charging cable and instruction manual.

Gnome Selfie Stick (3)

It truly is lightweight and easy to carry around with you. I did a few practice shots and it worked flawlessly! (though I look tired today so ignore that) The sign on my home office wall is one of my favorite quotes! I have it in the signature line of all my emails, on a necklace, and a bracelet. It’s a good reminder that we should always keep going! *And that’s exactly what Gnome Workshop did when I experienced an issue with the first two devices they sent me!

Gnome Selfie Stick (4)

If you are ready to jump on the bandwagon head on over to Amazon and grab one – heck, why not get a few as gifts for your friends. They are perfect for people like me with short arms. 

Check out my YouTube video where I show you how easy it is to use!

Or, you can try your hand at winning one! Winner will receive on Gnome Workshop Bluetooth Selfie Stick – black with green accents.

The Future of Art…3D art!

The Future of Art…3D art!

If you told me 20 years ago (maybe even 5 years ago) that the future of art would be 3D art I probably would have laughed in your face (it’s a bad habit of mine).  I was so excited recently to be part of a review campaign that allowed me the opportunity to review the new 7TECH 3D Printing / Drawing pen.  I will be honest, I’ve never been good at drawing and this was no different.  It was certainly fun!  I mean super fun – I just wish I had the ability to draw.  Even my stick figures don’t resemble stick figures!

When this opportunity came up I knew I wanted to take advantage of it.  I’ve been looking at these pens for a while because my brother is a fabulous artist and I’d love to see what he can create with one.  I figured I’d get the pen, try it out and then send it to him.  Yes, I really am still going to send it to him.  I’m kind of nice like that!

7TECH 3D pen (3)

 

Inside the box you will find the pen, AC adapter, filament, a spatula and some instructions plus a thank you note.

7TECH 3D pen (2)

 

The pen is quite easy to operate – and probably even easier if you have any drawing abilities whatsoever!

7TECH 3D pen (1)

 

It’s really as simple as loading the filament after it heats up, pushing the button…and drawing!  I did a YouTube video to share my review of the product, which also includes some instructions on using it.  Be sure to check it out below (and give me a ? on the YouTube).

 

I made this “flower” with the pen.  Or perhaps the phrase is “I attempted to make a flower with the pen.”  I’m sure with more practice I could actually make something that looks like a real thing, but since I specifically planned to get it for my brother off to him it goes!

7TECH 3D pen (4)

 

Why not grab your own 7TECH 3D printing pen today!?  You can get creative and have fun with new technology!

 

What would you make if you had a 3D pen?

Dana Sibilsky’s Tips to Successful and Profitable Blogging {book review}

Dana Sibilsky’s Tips to Successful and Profitable Blogging {book review}

I recently had the opportunity to receive a free copy of a paperback book to review in exchange for my honest and unbiased opinion –  Dana Sibilsky’s Tips to Successful and Profitable Blogging 

I’m not a fast reader, sadly, because I get easily distracted by the 4,000 things happening around me.  I had to force myself to sit down and make time to read it.  Thankfully, it’s not a long book, and it’s broken down in easy to read and digest chunks which made it great for someone like me who likes to read and wants to read, but can’t concentrate.  I have many, many books downloaded to my iPad and in “real” book form that are on my must read list.

Blogging Book Review v2

 

Dana takes the time to walk you through various aspects of successful and profitable blogging.

Identifying an Area of Expertise for Your Blog

My takeaway: Well, this is where I failed miserably.  I just wanted to start blogging so I did.  I didn’t really sit down and think of what I wanted to talk about specifically or narrow it down.  I started out wanting to write about “what is my craft” knowing that everyone’s “craft” is different – cooking, sewing, baking, crochet, and more.  I expanded a bit into writing about wonderful small businesses that I have had the pleasure of working with, and then I started sharing my favorite charities, and recipes!  So, I still don’t have a narrow focus, but I kind of like it that way.  It keeps it exciting {for me} – and I hope that’s the case for my readers as well.

Developing a Unique Voice

My takeaway: In real life I love to be the “class clown” and laugh whenever possible.  So, I do try to incorpate that sense of humor into everything I write to show that even when things aren’t great a little laughter can get you through!

Writing Skill Refinement

My takeaway: “No matter what you read, read it attentively.  Pay close attention to every bit of punctuation and try to hear the music of the words when they are read aloud so that when you read your own work you are able to do so critically.”

If you are like me, sometimes it is hard to read your own words and be critical of them or see where you can do better.  You wrote it, so it’s great, right?

Another take away about writing skill refinement is Dana’s bullet points of advice that can be used to help refine your writing and allow you to find strategies that work best for you.

  • Read often, and read attentively
  • Devote small blocks of time to practice each day (I write lots of things – not just my blog so I find lots of ways to practice writing for all audiences)
  • Take revising seriously, but don’t agonize over it (I often write something that I plan to publish on a later date which gives me the ability to write it, and then go back to it later and re-read it with a fresh set of eyes)
  • Welcome any and all feedback (I contributed to a book a while ago and it was hard for me to share with friends and family and ask for feedback on what is my personal story, but doing so helped me change some things to make it better.  You can grab a copy of The20Project on Amazon).

Choosing the Best Web Hosting and Writing Platform

My takeaway: Do your homework and research the options.  Talk to other bloggers. Don’t just choose something on the fly.  I worked with a friend who is a web designer and she helped lead me in the right direction.  My host is BlueHost and I have been VERY happy with them.


Bluehost.com Web Hosting $3.95

Building an Audience

I struggle with this.  I share my posts on Social Media and on my personal Facebook page, but I don’t want to spam people.  I feel like I have good to great content, yet the readership and the high numbers aren’t there.  So, I really need to follow Dana’s points:

  • Focus on the quality of the work you produce
  • Politely engage your audience on a regular basis
  • Build a “brand” (this is the hardest one to me)
  • Utilize social media to promote your work (I do this, but I feel like with so many other people and pages out there to follow I don’t get eyes on my stuff)
  • Write guest posts for other blogs (I’ve done this, but I need to be more proactive for sure!)
  • Accept freelance assignments whenever possible

The Importance of Positive Brand Development and Promotion

I still struggle with this.  I’m not really sure what my “brand” is, but I do try to do all I can to present my business in a positive light.  I work to help others on behalf of my business.  One of my original goals with starting a business (and even of dreaming of one when I was young) was to earn enough money to help those in need.

Additional Considerations Concerning the Use of Social Media

My takeaway: Promoting yourself as a professional blogger is important, and Dana offers these great tips:

  • Be active on a variety of social media platforms
  • Be cautious regarding what you post
  • Focus your activity on promoting your work
  • Understand social media’s unique language
  • Be polite and professional at all times

I think the point about being polite and professional is very important.  I try to not engage anyone in a way that would create a problem or come across the wrong way, but it is so hard to ensure you never offend anyone.  Tread lightly and always think before you speak or post something.

THINK before you speak

Determining the Best Strategy for Monetizing Your Blog

Not everyone writes a blog in an effort to earn an income, but if you do you will want a strategy.  You will want to determine how you want to earn the income.  For those who are readers of my blog, and don’t have your own blog…I do earn an income from my blog.  the banners and links you see at the bottom of my home page are affiliate partners, I often have other shops and blogs who might pay to advertise on my blog, and I have various links that earn money throughout my website and blog posts.   I try not to “push” it too much because I don’t want anyone to get turned off by it, but the different outlets I use to earn an income help me to provide giveaways on my blog and Facebook page, give to charity, and help others in need.  As I mentioned above, that has been one of my goals for a long time.  The more I make from those links and affiliate partners the more I can give back to my readers and customers and also help those in need!  Each time you purchase through one of my links I am closer to meeting those goals!

You can learn more by following Dana on her personal blog | Createspace | website.  And I shared a link to purchase the book in the opening paragraph.  

 

Are you ready to take the next step with your blog? What blogging goals have you set for yourself?

Amazon Deals…A Week in Review {8/13/15}

Amazon Deals…A Week in Review {8/13/15}

Recently I signed up with a few companies that provide you with the opportunity to purchase items through Amazon for a reduced price in exchange for an honest and unbiased product review.  I shop with Amazon anyway, so why not get items I might usually buy – at a discount!

I found out about this through a fellow blogger friend – Sadie, over at Slap Dash Mom.  She wrote a really great post not too long ago about how you can become a product reviewer without even having a blog!

Until you decide to take the leap and sign up  yourself…let me provide you with my Amazon Deals…A Week in Review of all the things I have recently received and a breakdown of what the value and retail value are per item versus what I actually paid.  And, having Amazon Prime makes this deal even better!

Amazon Deals Week in Review 8-13-15

I will start by saying that my “savings” are not nearly as high as some other people I know who also conduct reviews like this, but it’s still a decent savings all things considered.  I purchased 2 items* that had a high cost to me compared to many other items, but due to research I had done previously on these items, and the fact I wanted to buy them as a gift for someone, the price was worth it to me!  When I first looked at the 3D pens I never found one under $150.00 so spending $69.99 was well worth it to me (a full review of the pen is coming next month).  The retail value I listed is what the Amazon seller had the item listed for.  In some cases that might be relatively close to other places you might find on the web, and in other cases it was quite a bit lower than other retail places.  What I’m saying is – “savings” is not an exact science as some people might use a different calculation.  Do what makes you feel better about how much you actually spend.  😆 

As I mentioned above, having Prime makes the deal that much better.  In some cases, if you don’t have Prime you may not think the deal is worth it.  Sign up now if you don’t have Prime.  One of my favorite things besides the quick and free shipping is Amazon Music that I can listen to via an app on my iPhone.

 

So…are you ready to starting reviewing products on Amazon, and getting some of the items you would buy anyway, for a deal!?

The Fresh Factory – Probiotic Deodorant & Perspiration Reducer {review}

The Fresh Factory – Probiotic Deodorant & Perspiration Reducer {review}

Are you looking for an alternative to the standard deodorants and antiperspirants that are on the market today?  If so, you need to check out The Fresh Factory and their new Probiotic Deodorant and Perspiration Reducer.  It comes packaged in a perfect little jar and beautiful handmade box.  My friend Lindsay started The Fresh Factory in January 2014 when she needed to find something that worked well, was natural, and would not irritate her skin.  

As someone who has extremely sensitive skin I was really nervous to try it.  I usually buy products like Almay or anything “free” or “clear” because my skin gets irritated really easily – especially under my arms.  I was quite pleasantly surprised by The Fresh Factory Probiotic Deodorant & Perspiration Reducer.  I requested the unscented which has no “extra” essential oils in it because I am not a huge fan of smells.  But, what is so great about the product is that you can request different blends with various essential oils that all do different things.  Lindsay is very well versed in essential oils and can help you find a combination perfect just for you!

PUR…that’s some high quality H20

PUR…that’s some high quality H20

My all time favorite movie quote is from The Water Boy. “That’s some high quality H20”  I have always loved water – it’s my favorite beverage.  I like it plain – I don’t want fruit or bubbles or anything fancy – I just want ice cold water! The next best thing to fresh water from the spring, like I remember drinking with my grandparents when I was a child, is a PUR water pitcher or faucet filter.

One of the best things when you check your mail is a box that is wrapped in tape that says Influenster.  Working with them I have the opportunity to try products and share my personal opinions with all of my readers.  And, if you love water what better item to receive than a PUR water pitcher?  The other day I was the lucky recipient of a free PUR VoxBox from Influenster so that I can be the latest #WaterCritic. 

Influenster PUR VoxBox (1)

Inside the PUR box you will find easy to understand step-by-step directions for getting your pitcher ready for use. You will want to wash your pitcher with gentle dish soap before using it, and follow the directions for getting the filter ready. Once prepped you can fill up your pitcher with 11 cups of water and place it in the fridge to get to your perfect temperature – I like my water really cold and usually use ice cubes as well.

 

Influenster PUR VoxBox (2)

While I do have a water and ice dispenser on my home refrigerator what I like about having the PUR pitcher is that I can put this in the garage fridge and use it when outside to fill up my water bottle.  Or, I could take it to work and keep it in the office fridge (trusting that those crazy people that steal people’s PB&J sandwiches won’t touch my highly coveted PUR pitcher).  I suppose thinking that through…it’s not a risk I’m willing to take.  Darn lunch thieves – they ruin everything, don’t they!

Happy Father’s Day from Hallmark!

Happy Father’s Day from Hallmark!

This year Father’s Day is extremely bittersweet.  After losing my stepdad last August unexpectedly it’s tough not having him hear to go grab lunch and celebrate the day.  And, then my dad is in Connecticut so he’s not close enough to celebrate with either.  Despite the fact that neither are here with me, I will be celebrating Father’s Day with all of you!

Hallmark has added these amazing Kiddie Car Classics to their collection of already awesome gifts.  When I was chosen to receive one to review and also one to give away to one of my lucky readers I honestly thought it would be a tiny little car that is about the size of their holiday ornaments, but I was wrong!  It is 2.75″w x 3.15″h x 6.69″d and it’s made out of die-cast metal.  Each of the cars are individually numbered for collectibility.  What an awesome gift! I received the 1958 Chevrolet Corvette Kiddie Car Classics Collectible Toy Car.

Hallmark is offering ornaments as well which will be perfect for the holiday season.  But…seriously – these Kiddie Car Classics are so amazing!  They have the 1958 Chevrolet Corvette that I have, as well as a 1965 Ford Mustang, Street Rod, and 1949 Gillham Sport!  The Gillham Sport is my favorite because it’s red and has a set of golf clubs in the car!  It is currently sold out online and I can see why!  Don’t get me wrong, though, I really love the car I received as well.

Each car comes safely packed in a padded styrofoam insert, a card with information about your collectible car, and a beautifully designed box – perfect for gift giving.  I took my car on a little field trip around the yard to take some photos of it that would give you a fun look at this wonderful car.

Do you want a Kiddie Car Classics Collectible of your own?  Enter the Rafflecopter below and leave a blog comment telling me which one you like best and who you would give it to if you were the winner!

Giveaway will end on Wednesday, June 17th and Hallmark will send you a random selection.

Idina Menzel {Holiday Wishes}

Idina Menzel {Holiday Wishes}

Tis the season for Christmas songs…and Idina Menzel’s new CD Holiday Wishes is one that you will want to have in your collection!

It’s entirely possible that you first heard of Idina Menzel due to her most recent role of the singing voice of Elsa in Disney’s smash hit Frozen in which she sings the Oscar-winning song “Let It Go.”  But, many know her from her role as Elphaba in Wicked and as Rachel Berry’s mom on Glee.  In fact, Idina’s career spans stage, film, television, and music. After her performance of the multi-platinum song at the 86th annual Academy Awards, she made history as the first person with both a Billboard Top 10 hit and a Tony Award for acting. Idina currently stars as Elizabeth in the original Broadway production of If/Then.  Her voice is simply amazing, and I have enjoyed listening to this album several times already!

Despite the fact that the songs on this album are classics and have been sung by so many artists, Idina’s versions are unique and, to me, a jazzy sound.  Holiday Wishes was produced by Grammy Award-winner Walter Afanasieff (known for his work with Barbara Streisand, Celine Dion and Mariah Carey).  While the album does feature many holiday classics, you will also find “December Prayer”, “River” (one of her favorites), and “When You Wish Upon a Star.”

“December Prayer” is an absolutely beautiful song!  The lyrics are very touching – right from the very beginning.

In the touch of a friend, in the breath of a child,
In the eyes of a soldier coming home to his mother’s grateful smile,
In the sight of falling snow, and the memories it brings,
In the season when you find some peace, in the simple tender things,
Open your heart and look around, listen listen

I love the rendition of “Baby It’s Cold Outside” that she does with Michael Bublé – it is simply two great voices together perfectly!  If you watched the Christmas show on TV the other night from Rockefeller Center you were treated to seeing and hearing them perform it together live.  When you purchase your copy of the CD be sure to pick up the exclusive Target edition of Holiday Wishes you will get two bonus tracks, including “Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!”

I participated in the Idina Menzel Holiday Wishes album review program as a member of One2One Network. I was provided an album to review but all opinions are my own.

Mary J Blige {The London Sessions}

Mary J Blige {The London Sessions}

Thanks to One2One Network I was giving the opportunity to get an advanced digital copy of The London Sessions by Mary J Blige.  In true Mary J fashion…this album is terrific!  She has such a wonderfully soulful sound whenever she sings!

Mary J Blige has a long list of accomplishments that span Grammy Awards and American Music Awards.  The list includes 8 multi-platinum albums, 9 Grammys and 31 nominations, a Golden Globe nomination in 2012, and 4 American Music Awards.  As a global superstar, the singer/songwriter has a loyal fan base that has propelled her to record sales to more than 50 million albums!

Traveling to the UK, Mary J Blige worked with some of the UK’s most celebrated musical talent – including Disclosure, Eg White, Emile Sandé, Jimmy Napes, Naughty Boy, SAM ROMANS and Sam Smith to record a new studio album, The London SessionsThis wonderful new collection will be released December 2 on Capitol Records.

Quoting Steve Barnett (Capitol Music Group Chairman) – “Mary J. Blige created a one-of-a-kind blend of hip-hop and soul that has excited fans for more than 20 years, making her one of the most successful and acclaimed artists in any genre of music. The London Sessions is a fantastic album; another step forward for this great and enduring artist, and I am thrilled that she is now an important member of our Capitol Records family.”

 

Track Listing
1. Therapy
2. Doubt
3. Not Loving You
4. When You’re Gone
5. Right Now
6. My Loving
7.Long Hard Look
8. Whole Damn Year
9 .Nobody But You
10. Pick Me Up
11. Follow
12. Worth My Time

While I truly loved the whole album, Therapy was one of my favorites, which she co-wrote with Sam Smith and Eg White.  When I actually looked up the lyrics and really red them and took them in, I realized how powerful they are and it seems to me that Mary was very vulnerable when writing that song.

These are the last few lines from the song:

Someone help me
Turn around
I’m a victim
Hate the sound of my own voice
Turn it down
And all I do is aggravation

Why would I spend the rest of my days so bitter
And all that listening is making you bitter too
When I can go therapy
When I can go therapy
When I can go therapy two times a day

If you would like more information about this new project, be sure to check out and follow Mary J Blige on her social media sites.
