The Best Seat Outside With SunBriteTV Veranda Series with HDR

Last year, I was introduced to the SunBriteTV Veranda series, the television made for outdoors and as I look back on the post, it reminds of how much has changed in a year! First foremost, the biggest change for my son and myself is that we have since moved into our own home! I am officially a homeowner!

Change is good. I believe that people should be open to change. I know it can be difficult for my son, but he eventually adapts. Do you embrace change? Making changes is tough, but when you look back how and why it happened, it’s usually for good.

We Made Small Upgrades With Two Items We Use Almost Everyday

My son and I use to have to move every few years. Our most recent move was in December of 2018 and I’m confident it will be our last move for many years!  Each time we have had to move, I find myself making small upgrades with everyday items!

Small Upgrades With Everyday Items
Beauty Brite Disclosure

Every time we moved, I took the opportunity to downsize, declutter, and organize our things.  It is the perfect time to go through our things and determine what is worth packing up to take with us or just start over. I realize that not everyone likes to upgrade or downsize their items. With all of our previous moves, it just helps us overall ready for a new start. This time around, I was looking to upgrade my non-stick pan.

Get Smarter: What To Look For From Your Next Smartphone

In the olden days (by that, we mean the early 2000s), phones were all about calls and texts. They were functional devices which seemed like the cutting edge in communication. When we bought a new one, we looked out for things like appearance or a decent pay as you go package.

Best Gifts For Gamers

Best Gifts For Gamers--ROCCAT: Horde AIMO Gaming Keyboard

Beauty Brite Disclosure

 

Everyone knows a gamer. Many of our readers are probably gamers of one kind or another. I, personally, prefer fun little games I can play on my phone or iPad like word-themed games, or those where you build up a little town and trade gifts and help other players, solitaire-type games, mystery games, or coloring apps. Pretty basic and mundane, I suppose.

But, my husband and children are much more prolific gamers than I ever will be. They love all the popular games for the PC, Nintendo DS, Switch, Xbox and Playstation platforms like Left 4 Dead, Far Cry, Resident Evil, Legend of Zelda, Animal Crossing, Mario Kart, Zak & Wiki, Rock Band, The Sims, Grand Theft Auto, Assassins Creed, Halo, Metal Gear Solid, Battlefield, Red Dead Redemption, Uncharted, The Last of Us, The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim, Gears of War, Metroid, inFAMOUS, Call of Duty……

I mean, pick your favorite game of all time and they’ve probably played it at some point. I can’t keep up with it all. I know I sound like a total noob.

Since they’re all gamers, any time birthdays or Christmas come around I always kind of delve into this part of their world just a bit (enough to become thoroughly dazed and confused!) in search of gift ideas that they’ll love.

Over the years I’ve found some nice little gems and started something of a tradition in gifting to the gamers in my own family as well as outside friends and family that is pretty successful. Here are some of my ideas for the best gifts for gamers. Some of this stuff you already know if you have a gamer in your life. [read more]

Remote- (or voice-) controlled devices make moving through my day a little easier. It’s an unnecessary luxury, but a welcomed one, all the same. Especially since I’m often on my feet flitting from one task to the next and stopping to flip a switch or find a remote control for pretty much anything is an aggravation that I just don’t need. Check out this new little home technology gem that I’ve found to make that super easy! [read more]

Air Fryer Oven Cooking For The Busy Lifestyle

I was introduced to my first air fryer a year ago. I like using the air fryer to make salmon.  It really saves time and energy as I don’t have to heat up the oven.  I tried making his favorite foods in it and he just wasn’t having it (he’s a picky eater). I only used it a few times and then it sat in a cupboard for months until I decided to pull it out again and give it another try!

Now that we have our own home and settling in, I’ve had the air fryer sitting proudly on my countertop! Nowadays, my son has me use the air fryer daily for his foods!

Home Security Doesn’t Have To Be Expensive

Home Security Doesn't Have To Be Expensive

 

Recently my neighborhood has had an influx of crime and a few break-ins. This is terrifying considering I have lived in the same neighborhood now for close to 10 years and crime has never been an issue. I mean, HELLO?!?! We have 2 police officers in our community, isn’t that enough to deter criminals?

Apparently not because last weeks crime spree was right on the end of the street where the 1 of the officers home is located. This has hit too close to home for me and so I began looking at home security systems. WOW. The prices have definitely skyrocketed over the years and I know I can’t afford over $200 a month just for security, let alone the start up fee. The good news is I did not have to fork out that much money for peace of mind. WYZE provides outstanding security while remaining budget friendly.
