I hope that everyone had a Merry Christmas. I felt the need to write this post on Toys R Us’s new android Tabeo e2 Tablet which was supposed to be the next generation of awesome tablets for kids. After conducting weeks of research and reading countless reviews I decided to purchase a set for my two younger sons ages 10 and 7. My primary reason for the purchase was to one provide them with educational tablets that in others opinions had been compared to an iPad except this was a less expensive version and more kid friendly. I currently own both an iPad2 and a mini iPad and my kids are on them non-stop conducting research for school, watching kid movies or playing games. I figured this purchase would be a great investment.  First of all these little boogers are not easy to find. I searched for over a month trying to locate these devices. I had to travel to multiple counties here in Atlanta to finally get my hands on two of them. Ok lets fast forward to Christmas Eve night. I was  already up super late playing Santa Claus and imagine how disappointed I was when I plugged the devices in to charge and two hours later attempted to complete the parental information on the tablet. The tablets will not work if you do not complete the parental information and the issue that I was having is that the tablet would not load. UGH!!! Not to mention that I purchased two and neither one of them worked correctly. I gave the tablets try after try to no avail did neither one of them work. Needless to say that I was livid! So the kids never knew that they had them and I returned then to Toys R Us on the day after Christmas only to find out from the nice lady at customer service that they have been getting returns on the Tabeo E2 all day. All I could do was say Wow! This tablet gets zero stars from this Mommy!



iPhone5 from Aio Wireless Blogging Adventure #1

22 Dec


Everyone knows that Bloggers absolutely love receiving packages and on last week when I arrived home there was a FedEx package waiting on my front porch. It always feels like Christmas when your opening a package (at least to me it does). I was pleasantly surprised to see that Aio Wireless sent me an iPhone5 to use and review. I am a die-hard Apple person and I presently own an IPhone4S, iPad2 and Mini iPad. I know your probably saying that its sort of extreme but as a blogger these are all necessary tools and essentials to our lives or at least my life. I’m also a Social Media Manager so for me I make my living solely on all Social Media outlets so to add an additional iPhone product to my collection was AWESOME!.

I am presently an iPhone4S user and while some say there aren’t many different features between the 4S and 5, I totally disagree. The iPhone 4S is a glass design, smaller screen (3.5″), apple A5 processor and 30-pin connector versus the iPhone5 which has an aluminum and glass design, larger screen (4″), Faster processor (Apple A6), thinner and lighter, supports ultra-fast wireless (LTE) and uses the Lightning connector. Now what does all of this mean to a blogger like myself? A lot! The iPhone5 is so much faster its just that simply and it also takes the best pictures especially #selfies. I know right! We’ll it’s the truth. My world is wrapped up in having the ability to post quickly, snap the perfect picture to upload for my business and having ultra-fast wireless (LTE). My iPhone4S is from a different cellular company in fact a well-known carrier. I can not tell you how many issues I have been having lately. Let’s fast forward to my experience using the iPhone5 with Aio Wireless service and I’m simply in love. Since having my new iPhone5 I have experienced lightning speed service like no other. Plus Aio Wireless does not make you sign a contract. How cool is that? It’s a plus in my book. I’m a single mother and when I want to upgrade my phone without paying outrageous prices this is a major factor for me but its a business decision that I must make and most times I am forced to purchase a new phone. We’ll not anymore! Aio Wireless has the latest smart phones and tablets, no annual contracts, reliable nationwide coverage and simple plans and straightforward pricing. If you haven’t already please take out a few minutes and visit their site (www.aiowireless.com)  to learn more about this amazing company.



I received an iPhone5 to help inform my writing and to review. The review is based solely on my opinion of the iPhone5 and the cellular service.

Tristan & Eve Titanium Wedding Band

9 Dec

I had the opportunity to receive one of Tristan & Eve’s Mens 8MM Titanium Wedding Band Ring Brushed Middle Grooves and Raised Ridges with 11 Channel Set CZ to review. “This high quality mens wedding or anniversary ring is the perfect combination of sophistication with masculinity. A short row of 11 channel set cubic zirconias shine brightly without making the ring feminine. The grooves and brushed middle surface also reinforce the masculine ideal within the ring. Made from pure titanium, this is a light ring and will make a wonderful gift for your husband or partner” (http://www.tristanandeve.com/). The ring arrived in a cute little black bag that can be reused to store your ring. I decided to allow my seventeen year old son who normally doesn’t like to wear jewerly assist me with the review. Upon receiving the ring I gave it to my son to wear for the week to see how he felt about the ring. My son wore the ring for the first week everyday to school, after school activities and also during basketball practice and games. I was quite surprised when my son told me that he received compliments from a host of people on his new ring and how much he really enjoyed wearing the ring. This is a surprise from a person who never wears any jewerly. I think that this is a great ring to purchase for an engagement, wedding or promise ring. I think it also makes the perect Christmas gift and you still have time to place your orders by going to http://www.tristanandeve.com for only $18.99 or you can also purchase it from Amazon for only $17.99.

Black Beauty Sensationnel Hair Awards 2013 in London

9 Dec

My travels continue! On November 29 I boarded my Delta flight for a nine hour flight to London which is the capital city of England and of the United Kingdom. It is the most populous region, urban zone and metropolitan area in the United Kingdom. I flew into London Heathrow Airport although there are several others to choose from this is the largest and it’s the only one that I know my way around. On my previous visit to London I became very familiar with their Tube which is one of their public transportation services. In my opinion the Tube and the Bus services are very easy to learn and will help in getting you around this beautiful city. Once I arrived it was Saturday early morning so after gathering my luggage I headed to exit that lead me to the Lube system so I could purchase a one day pass and start my ventures to the hotel.

The ride on the Tube was about thirty minutes to my hotel. I stayed at the Hilton London Metropole which also where the awards ceremony where I was presenting an award was being held. Upon arriving to the Hotel there were already many people waiting to check-in so I had a seat in the bar area and chatted with a few fellow guest. The concierge quickly found me to let me know that my room was ready and once I checked in and had my bags taken to my room I headed out to shop on Oxford Street and Piccadilly Circus.  If you have never visited London and plan to travel there someday you have got to go shopping in both areas. London has every store plus ones you can not even imagine all one a huge strip. London is actually preparing for Christmas so the streets are always jam-packed with people shopping up and down at all of the stores. I discovered these areas on my last trip to London a few years ago and I can tell you that I shopped so hard on the last trip until my luggage was overweight from clothes, shoes and souvenirs. I had a great time out shopping and of course I shopped every single day that I was there on this trip.

On Sunday I had the honor of attending the Black Beauty Sensationnel Hair Awards Ceremony where my sister and I were presenting the award for the braid stylist of the year on behalf of Jamaican Mango & Lime, the number one Loc & Twist Brand in the World. The evening started with a reception where the presenters, recipients and guest had an opportunity to meet and mingle with each other before the dinner and ceremony began. Shortly thereafter we presented the award and danced into the wee hours of the morning. I’m looking forward to my next trip to London in a few months!
