5 Apps for Tech-loving Foodies #VZWBuzz

nood2

There are a zillion apps that cater to foodies, but what gets to stay on the homescreen on your mobile phone is the true test. Here are 5 of my favorite food reference apps of all time: One of the coolest apps I’ve come across is Wineglass [$4.99 on iOS].  I admit I’m not a big wine drinker, but my husband and his friends are.  Wanting not to look stupid at a restaurant simply always ordering the house wine, Wineglass makes wine pairing as easy as scanning the wine list with your phone and populates with ratings and reviews as well […]

REVIEW: LeapFrog LeapPad Platinum and Imagicard Fun

IMG_1838

You know when the iPad has become old news to your children that it must be pretty awesome.  While my kids are definitely fans, I think the parentals are the ones who are most happy with this new addition to our tablet family.  Our children’s screen time does tip on the more time than many would agree with but providing educational play is key for us.  With the iPad, my husband and I found complete lack of control over the content our children were engaging with and whether or not they are age appropriate for  them.  Our children span ages […]

It is an emphatic YES!  In fact, in a few weeks you will be seeing some of my blogger friends take that leap of faith. Since I started, I had already lost 10 lbs and was a svelte 127 from simply eating better and exercising more.  Finishing up the UltraShape treatment, I vary  from 116 – 118 lbs, which was last seen […]

5 Tips for Safer Online Shopping #LifeOnFiOS

WEB-0078

  Who doesn’t love to shop online these days? It’s so convenient, with a world of products right at your fingertips, quick price comparisons. Shipping and handling is often free and even if it’s not, many times it’s worth the extra few dollars and offset by the fact you don’t have to waste time driving to the store, finding parking, dealing with crowds and long lines. Lately though, every time you turn on the television these days you hear about another security breech and cases of internet fraud.  It’s particularly nerve racking when it’s often names of companies you often shop […]

Google Play Brings #FamilyPlayTime to NYC!

I am avid Google user. I can honestly say I use Google for almost every web search or internet inquiry I have, be it lyrics to a particular song or something related to a discussion I am having. I have even taught my five-year-old how to look things up on Google (which is particularly useful when he has projects that require a bit of research). Google has an endless wealth of information.  I mean, there is a reason why people are often found saying “I can just Google it” when seeking out information about a particular subject of interest. Recently, […]

IMG_0638

As a mom, there is nothing better than getting a targeted, guide to what’s hot and what’s important to me, especially when it comes to CE Week.  It can be overwhelming in general!  The minute I was registered my inbox was flooded with CE information, I soon began to tune it all out and turned to my pals at KidzVuz and Techlicious who know exactly what would interest me. The fabulous team of Rebecca Levey and Nancy Friedman of KidzVuz, put together the most awesome cast of brands for a tech-full breakfast. I was sad to get there late but […]

My UltraShape Story – Part 3: The Struggle is Real

Read Part I: http://momconfessionals.com/2015/06/skinny-fat-ultrashape-ultrayou/ Read Part II: http://momconfessionals.com/2015/06/my-ultrashape-story-part-2-first-impressions/ The only thing they tell you to do after a treatment is to watch your fat intake for the next several days.  Why you ask?  When you eat, the first thing your body does is process what it needs for energy  and any excess is then processed into stored fats for when you might need it.  It is always your body’s first goal to store and save fat.  When you are working out, your body burns muscle first, before it burns fat, which is why it can be discouraging for many wanting to see instant results […]
