Enjoying The Summer with Verizon FiOS #SomosFiOS

Disclosure: This post is part of a sponsored campaign with Verizon FiOS (#SomosFiOS).  All thoughts and opinions expressed here are 100% my own. Summertime means pool parties, tan lines, BBQ's, fire pits and loads of family time. With Verizon FiOS, summer can also mean fun at your fingertips and endless entertainment. Because of all the fun during the summer months, I rarely have the urge to cook meals in a hot kitchen. I would rather have someone cook for me or eat out at a restaurant … [Read more...]

{Review} The Snugg iPad 2 Executive Case Cover and Stand in Black Leather

I recently received the Snugg iPad 2 Executive Case Cover and Stand in black leather for review and allow me to say that I am completely in love with it. I'm a proud owner of an iPad for about two years now and have been through iPad cases like crazy. Being a frugal mom, I haven't invested a lot of money on iPad cases. Consequently, I've ended up with low-quality cases. In just a few months of normal wear and tear, the cases start to rip on the sides and the stitching pulls away at the seams. … [Read more...]

Verizon FiOS Has a Brand New App Update — LIVE TV!

Verizon FiOS: A View into My DVR List thru FiOS Mobile for iPad #MC

Disclosure: I wrote this review while participating in a Test Drive campaign by Mom Central on behalf of Verizon FiOS and received a free trial of the products and services necessary to facilitate my review. I'm so bad. I can be a couch potato all day long and love it but for fear of getting heart disease, I don't. With the help of Verizon FiOS and their wonderful mobile app, I don't have to miss any of my favorite shows. I can exercise or do whatever I want and choose to watch my favorite … [Read more...]

My New Obsession: Zinio For iPad App

Thanks to my fellow blogger and friend Migdalia from Latina on a Mission for introducing Zinio on her blog. She tweeted about one of her posts showcasing a free subscription of Cosmopolitan for the Zinio app a few weeks ago and I was curious to know what was Zinio all about. Before her post, I never heard of Zinio. And like so many people, when I see the word FREE, I jump at the chance to see if I can get my hands on it. Lol I clicked on her link and there it was -- a full year … [Read more...]

I Hosted A LeapFrog “Learn, Create, Share” Party!

A few weeks ago, I invited a few moms from the neighborhood to come over for a LeapFrog "Learn, Create, Share" party with some snacks and some LeapFrog products. It's not often I get together with other moms because we all have different schedules and often times, our families keep us quite busy. So having a party is always on the back-burner if we're not celebrating a birthday or two. Thanks to Mom Select and LeapFrog, I had the opportunity to spend some quality time with some friends (who … [Read more...]

The American Museum of Natural History Introduces Their New Explorer App

Yesterday I attended an event at the Museum of Natural History for their media preview to showcase their newest and latest creation - The Explorer App for iPad/iPhone/iPod Touch. The app is amazing and if you have either of these devices; iPad/iPhone/iPod Touch, you won't need the paper map and we can all help save some trees by not using the map. How's that for helping the planet? ;) Earlier this year, the museum launched its first iPhone app - Dinosaurs: The American Museum of … [Read more...]
