Grab the LG G4 Smartphone at Best Buy

Best Phone for Cute Kid Pictures

Becoming a mom made me one crazy phone-photography lady for sure.  I have had the exact same phone brand since it first came out in 2007. In the past few months, I realized that it's TOTALLY time to shop for a new obsession!  So when the LGG4 Smartphone came out - It was like a crazy force field drawing me to it!  I honestly hit up the stores like 4 times just to play with it.  And this past week, I made buddies with the sales rep at Best Buy to the point where he knows me by name. HA.  

Sad, I know.  But I'm a DIGITAL INFLUENCER, people.  I gotta have the gadgets to do my job.  

I know.  I totally know what you're thinking. I do have every gadget known to man laying around my house and I def do have an obsession with gadgets... So after doing the Best Buy Trade In Program - mama got a brand new phone!  

I'm actually really embarrassed about my experience at Best Buy.  I snapped an awesome shot with my OLD PHONE of the LG G4, then started fooling around with the LG G4 - THEN bought their phone with trade in on my phone & an ipad - and I DON'T HAVE THE PICTURE BECAUSE I DON'T HAVE MY OLD PHONE!

So here are 5 thing about the LG G4 I LOVE:

1) The camera.  It's THE.BOMB.  The Mega Pixels on this thing is 16 MP on the forward cam and 8 MP on the back camera.  The auto focus is the best one I've seen on any phone. For.Sure.

2) The Design.  I love the leather design!!  It's very helpful with a toddler that likes to throw phones.  Ahem.  #JustSayin

3) Display.  Finally!!!  It's brighter, clearer and easier to see.  And as a novice photographer it's really great to SEE the images I take in the dark! ha

4) Get MONEY BACK if you buy it from Best Buy!  Guaranteed $100 Best Buy Gift Card!! $100 is a fab return on your investment, don't you think?

5) Size.  It fits in the palm of my hand.  My husband has one of the crazy huge phones and I can't even stand it.  No way can I handle one of those big phones.  But this one fits perfectly.  It's like the glass slipper! haha

PICTURE THIS: Father's Day

Father's Day is RIGHT around the corner!!  (Um, hi.  Yeah, it's SUNDAY!!!)

I'm so behind on sharing my fun finds lately - so sorry.  I mean, I am kind of planning a CRAZY AWESOME CONFERENCE!!  Blogger Bash is taking hold of my brain - but I can't let work get in the way of real life - and real life is filled with things stealing our time and thoughts - so why not share with you some of the best things I've found on the web for dad!

(By the way - these awesome items were sent for review.  But I wouldn't share their greatness if I didn't think they were 'COOL DAD WORTHY!')

TONKI

When I first tried to understand this brand - I had NO CLUE that they were cardboard!  The name made me chuckle & when I got it and realized how so very cool it was - I am NOW obsessed with the name, product, everything!  Just ordered some for my own dad.  They are about $15 each and come in really cool packaging.  Not to mention - TONKI is an awesome name!

PICTURE IT CANVAS

Anything on canvas is cool - but a picture of you and your family is worth a 1,000 words, right?  This is a great gift.  This company can really do a lot of different things for your pictures too!  Print on canvas, metal and More!!  Picture it on Canvas is a company that has creativity and memories on the mind!  ((I'd share the image of what I got made - but if my hubby is looking at this - I stink at gifting!!! lol))

eyn-phone-case-review.jpg

EYN PRODUCTS

Sometimes carrying a purse is a royal pain.  And of course GUYS don't carry purses.  (If they do, they're murses, right? ha!)  But just having something to put your id, cash, credit cards in would be such an easy thing, right? Everything You Need right there - in the palm of your hand.  EYN is a perfect case to use when you just don't want to carry a wallet or purse!

Casetify

This is such a cool imaging company!  We all love to have a little 'snapshot' to remind us of the blessings in life - so why not put them on our favorite devices?  This site is great because it was simple to upload, edit & see what your final product would look like.  The only problem I had was that I kept making the product for ME and forgot that it was suppose to be for my husband! lol 

 

 

 

So Dad's Day is a big day in our house. We're heading to Wildwood, NJ to enjoy what Morey's Pier has!  What are you up to and what did you get your special dad?

Which Dry Spray products are YOU excited to try?


 

Disclosure:  NOPE.  I did not get paid for this.  I did get some dry goods to test and love them.  All opinions are my own. 

 

iPad Case & Blue Bird Clutch

If you've never been to the website Uncommon Goods, then PREPARE YOURSELF! =)

 

This site has some of the coolest of all things ever.  Things you just don't find really anywhere else.  

 

The sent me this awesome iPad case (see all here) to review that was made out of an old Mailbag.  And I LOVE IT!  My son has his iPad all safe and secure but mine just flys around the house.  (Yes he's spoiled and yes mine has been cracked before.  Sigh)  So now it's nice to have it in a SAFER place.  Cute and trendy doesn't hurt either!  The iPad case costs $55. 

 

The little clutch is felt and so much fun.  It's great with summer colors but warm and cozy for winter, spring and fall too! It costs $32

 

Uncommon Goods has some great (like these!) a
and (like these!)  You MUST check them out!  

 

Happy Shopping!

Toy Bungee Review

This is a very cool project and it really fits a wide range of ages in kids.  I love how moms come up with so many great products to lighten our 'mom load'!

The Toy Bungee was created by a mom who had a 1 & 2 year old and was TIRED of the throwing game!

She's one smart mom.

The Bungee is great to strollers, highchairs, car seats, on the airplane - really anywhere!

I don't know how many times I took my kid shopping and he dropped his toy out of the stroller and I didn't realize it.  There goes that toy.  Forever. 

Bring on the Bungee!

Retail value around $10.  Get it at Amazon

 

Kiddie Catch All

This is a cute idea.  And KUDOS to a smart, savvy mom to create it!

The Kiddie Catch - ALL. 

We got a couple to review and so far so good!

They sure 'catch all'.
