Are you a music enthusiast like me? I gotta listen to music all the time, in the car, in the gym, in the shower and while cleaning house. While in Myrtle Beach I was even using a mini bucket that my drink had been in to amplify my songs. Of course the drink was gone and bucket was dry. Haha! But like most of us we have apps like Pandora and Spotify on our phones. What if we could stream those playlists. Yes some new TVs can do it. But what if you don’t have those fancy TVs. Well Google Chromecast has the answer: Google Chromecast Audio.
Google Chromecast Audio allows for hundreds of apps to be played on your home speakers. The best part isthe sound is Crystal clear and powered by the cloud. Since your streaming on Wi-Fi instead of bluetooth the quality is better. And there is a multi room option, you can stream multiple Google chrome devices together. That is great for me when I’m cleaning. I am one of those people who cleans like three rooms at a time. So having music filling the house is great! And it is small enough to toss in a suitcase for vacation. I wish I had this product when I was in Myrtle Beach. I would have been jamming to my favorite tunes.
With Thanksgiving about a month away, I am thinking about all the Holiday baking. Personally I grew up in a house were our Sunday dinners were twelve people. Our holidays were even bigger. Baking would start a couple days before and so would the meal prep. We would have dishes from both sides of the family. Even though most our family was Greek at the holidays.
Loving the blue inside for a great pop of color in this photo.
My Mom is in the market for a new oven. This LG is what I would love for her to buy. TheProBake Convection™ is what got my eye. Every meal on every rack baked to perfection is amazing. We have all seen ovens where the bottom cooks the food faster then the top. This oven doe NOT do that. Meaning you can bake cookies on any rack like a professional oven. It is “Inspired by pro-style ranges, this LG range moved the heating element from the bottom of the oven to the back wall for optimal heat distribution. Enjoy consistent browning on top and bottom – with every cookie baked to perfection with LG’s ProBake Convection ranges”. I mean who has not baked cookies and some on the sheet burnt and others were fine. I know I have. I cant wait to show Mom this amazing oven. It even has an easy clean feature that will help a lot.
Great Silver color.

As some of you read in my previous blog I have been fixing up my house. But most people don’t always think about lighting when they first think redecorating. And I have to agree I am one of those people. But after seeing some of the ideas and photos I offered to do this blog. This will change the way you think of lightening your house. This will transform the way you use light by adjusting colors, timers, alerts and more from your phone or mobile device. I mean who does not have their phone with them 24/7. I do and I have the new Note 5 so I couldn’t wait to download the application. The bulbs, accessory lights and bridge work with your Wi-Fi. You can create mood-setting color schemes, or enjoy the right light setting for reading, relaxing, a romantic night in or even to fit the season. You can also easily maintain an automatic schedule so your lights will turn on when the sun goes down. Or if you are on vacation to look like someone is home. Hue A19 Starter kit available at: Bestbuy.com
Also for this project I got to try the Hue Go, completely wire free light smart light. Take it or put it anywhere. You can plug it in or carry it with you with up to 3 hours of rechargeable battery life. It has different preset settings also two shades of white. Bright and a softer white for when you want dim lights. You can control it with the button on it or through the app. “Hue Go helps you to wake up fresh and energized in the morning with deep dimming. The gradually increasing light intensity gives you the feeling you are waking up from sunrise – gently and naturally.” The Hue Go can ordered BestBuy.Com
The final product I got to test is Netgeat Nighthawk DST Router & DST Adapter. I still have not received this as of writing this blog so I will update it when it when I do as far as my view. But from what I hear it has a plug in adapter that you can use in places like basements, where you get dead zones with your wifi. I cant wait to see if it works. It is a Best Buy exclusive. Available for purchase at: on BestBuy.Com
My favorite product so far is the wireless Hue Go. I use it in my room at night to relax. I love the color options. And its great to unwind after a long day. However, the kids steal it a lot so we will be buying a second one. As far as the est of the products I was unable to test the router before the blog was due. There will be an Update in a week or so. The starter kit is great however, I havent gotten creative with the lights as far as location…Yet! So I will add that to my update. But I did love the Hue app. I’m a app addict so this is so me and a must try for any techy.

For many of us its Back To School time. And one thing on most of our lists is a memory card or memory stick. My 16 year old son is in public school. And they are not allowed to use the printers at school. So he has to have a memory stick to bring home projects to print. And Best Buy is the one stop shop to find safe storage for all your devices, from cameras, to tablets, to phones, and laptops. SanDisk is the industry leader in performance and reliability. SanDisk SD cards are also designed to meet the security, capacity, performance, and environmental requirements of next generation devices. That means no lost projects, pictures, or files when upgrading phones. Also I love being able to remove your documents and knowing that you wont lose them. The best part is they have products for both types of operating systems. So no matter if your #TeamIphone or #TeamAndroid SanDisk has you covered at Best Buy.
Maybe you are not sure what you need for the products you own. Well you don’t want to miss out on important pictures on your dream vacation, or during the Holidays with family. Some cameras have very limited space, especially if your using it at a high resolution. I remember my 1st camera point and shoot camera. I could not take more then 25 photos before I ran out of memory. Of course I ran the next day to Best Buy and fixed that. But if your unsure what you need…
Visit the site and figure out what product is right for you:

Here is a great video from BestBuy with the Modal bag.
As you know I am a Mom on the go. Blogging, work, kids, and dieting. It is a busy life. Yet I am trying to fit the gym in more. With the Model tote I can drag work, gym and anything else with me. I loved the bottom pocket so I can carry shoes without having to carry them in a grocery bag, or have them make my clothes dirty in a duffle bag. I also love that you can use it with handles or the optional strap to wear it over the shoulder. Depending on my day plans, is how I chose which. The thermal pocket is great for my curling iron. I never would take it because I would have to wait too long for it too cool. Now I can take it anywhere! I have to say this is a great bag for the Mom on the go.
