Disclosure: I received Philips ear buds to facilitate my review.  As always, my post are based on my opinions and experiences. I can’t exercise without either watching or listening to something. Unfortunately, finding the right ear buds that won’t fall out or breakdown due to sweat can be difficult. Currently, I am trying out the Philips ActionFit Earbuds and I found that it has a couple of things going for it. It is superlight and comfortable which was great during running as it was less likely to fall off or start to make my ears sore after a couple of hours. It also handles sweat extremely, due to its rubber construction the buds never felt like they were going to slip or loosen. Finally and most important to me is the cord. I tend to flail a little bit when I run, so I really need a cord that is well constructed and sturdy.   The ActionFit cord is reinforced out of Kevlar meaning that there is a pretty low probability that I will tear the cord apart. Also gone are the days of … [Read more...]

Nowadays your cell phone is your life line to call or text loved ones, your GPS and your mobile business center. Unfortunately, it is not indestructible and the horror stories of shattered screens and waterlogging my cell phone has definitely occurred. And as everyone knows that can be very expensive replacement cost with or without cell insurance. While I toured NYC CE Week, I was on the lookout for the best in cell phone cases.

Family Bonding Through Soccer and Fútbol #PassTheLove

Oreo #PasstheLove

This is part of a sponsored campaign with Being Latino and Mondelez.  However, all opinions expressed are my own. The final games of the summer soccer games are almost set and I have loved every minute of it.   The energy, the passion and how every team has left it all on the field!  I am visiting Puerto Rico with the Dancing Hotdogs family for the past week and I really enjoyed how my Puerto Rican family came to root on their adoptive teams.  Puerto Ricans are known for their beisbol or even basketball so it has been fun teaching them a few rules and giving them a little lesson about national rivalries and past victories.  Rock, soccer star-in-training, has even been giving a few soccer lessons to cousins. Check out several generations of Dancing Hotdogs getting together to celebrate the game. That is what soccer or fútbol does it brings everyone together to share in the experience.  Whether your heart and soul is tied to fútbol or if you are a new comer to the game … [Read more...]
