VTech KidiZoom SmartWatch Giveaway

“It’s realllly cool!”

Those are P’Diddys’ words. I’m inclined to agree though. I smartwatch for kids? Hubby is a bit jealous that a 4yr old was able to have one before him!

The Kidizoom® Smartwatch by Vtech Kids does a lot more then just tell time. Our watch arrived at a perfect time. P’Diddy has been wanting a watch like his brothers, but we didn’t have any extra that were digital. Plus does a preschooler really need a watch? If it’s Smart they do!

With the push of a button he can turn the camera on and take a picture! He can then choose multi-frames or different effects to add to his photo. He watches me take pictures on my phone all the time so this is really really coooool for him.

The second button on the watch brings up the home screen. It has three pages of little icons (no reading needed!) where here he can choose to play a game, use the stopwatch (him and his brothers are always timing things!), find his photos, and many more features.

Believe me, he thinks he is pretty Smart now. ;)

Hobie Polarized Sunglasses Giveaway

A good pair of sunglasses is all you need for a relaxing day at the beach. Ok, maybe a nice chair with an umbrella too. A cool drink and bestseller book by your side? I hear you! But really it all comes back to the sunglasses. They are a must have!

Hobie Polarized Sunglasses are made for the beach and the ocean. What more could you ask for?

Hobie Bayside

Hubby has on the Hobie Bayside in Brown Wood Grain Frame and Copper Lens. Does he look like a surfer? I told him he needed to get into the waves! He reminded me he just had knee surgery and that was out of the question. A sand picture will have to do. ha!

Hobie lens technology offers color balance through proprietary polarized film, which allows eyes to transmit clear “color messages” to the brain providing the ability to see all colors vividly. Hydroclean Plus lens coatings provide unmatched vision on and off of the water with polarized film technology, while enhanced hydrophobic and anti-reflective coatings, reduce distracting reflections and glare.

Hobie Bayside Sunglasses

I call them SmartGlasses. :) Really, though I am a firm believer in polarized and don’t think I can ever go back. They make everything so clear…especially with water glare. If you don’t have an ocean nearby, you may believe me by just testing them out by driving in the rain. I can see better with sunglasses on!

The Bayside style comes in multiple colors – both in frames and lenses, but I love the wood grain look. What do you think?

Check out the whole Hobie Sunglasses line for summer!

The #Outlander Series is coming!

I have been an avid reader all my life. I find time in my day, mostly before bed, to read. I like a huge variety and if it is a hot book – Twilight, Divergent, Hungry Games, etc. I will have read it. I can’t miss out! Especially if it is going to be turned into a movie. I must read it first.

If you ask me to pick ONE book or maybe one series to recommend to you I will say Outlander first. It is a thick historical fiction story about Claire who accidently goes back in time to the 18th century where she finds herself in a dire situation and must marry Jamie. Many, many years later I am reading book #8 that just came out this month. Jamie and Claire are still together, but have endured many trials along the way. FANTASTIC read. A definite all time favorite! I don’t collect many books on my bookshelf anymore, but I have every single one of the Outlander stories.

When I found out that there was going to be a television show on this series, I was SO excited. Like jumping up and down excited. I am in love with these characters and now I get to watch them come to life!

The Outlander series will premiere on Saturday, August 9th at 9pm EST on STARZ, but I’m going to admit to you that I was a lucky girl and was able to watch the first two episodes already. What did I think?

AWESOME! oh my. The scenery alone is breathtaking in Scotland. Jamie and Claire are just like I imagined them to be and I love having a picture of them in my head as I’m reading the latest book. The episode was full of history and romance (for the guys right?) and followed right along the storyline I had in my head with a couple of small added parts for TV, but you knew that would happen. Have to spice things up a bit to attract attention. Jamie is enough attraction for me though…just look at that kilt. hee hee.

My hubby knows nothing about the Outlander story, but I know he would love this adventure series and I’m excited to be able to watch it together after the kids go to bed.

Stay tuned for more #Outlander news in a couple of weeks and don’t forget to watch Saturday, August 9th at 9pm EST on STARZ!

Have you read the Outlander Series or heard the hype for the new show?
