Skinny Fat, it’s a Real Thing – Part I #UltraShape #UltraYou

IMG_0220

At 5 feet 4 inches tall and 125 pounds many people would guess I’m skinny.  If hidden strategically well under clothing I’d agree but I’m introducing you to the idea of skinny fat. You can be skinny and you can be fat too. At the tender age of 27, after giving birth to my first child, I weighed an amazing 112 pounds and was wearing a size 0-2 and my body… amazing!  In fact, exclusively breastfeeding had my body looking better than it did pre-pregnancy, I had those gorgeous full breastfeeding boobs! No one could tell I had a c-section. After […]

3 Reasons to Switch to Verizon Edge Now #VZWBuzz

Droid Turbo

I’ll admit it took a bit of a learning curve to understand the Verizon Edge program.  Being ever the addict to the latest gadget, I’ve been so use incessantly checking when I am due for an upgrade (every 2 years) or even taking another phone on my account’s upgrade for my own use. But I’ve hit a wall.  Recently my mother-in-law, under going chemo and radiation therapy damaged her phone and needed a new one ASAP. Not just any phone, an iPhone. You see her primary language is Chinese and iPhones are the most language friendly phones on the market […]

It’s a Snap with Peapod!

It’s no secret, I’m a busy girl. I’m always running around, it’s always GO GO GO! One thing I do several times a week is grocery shop. Yes several times a week as I’m always forgetting something. With Peapod.com’s recent expansion into the 5 boroughs of New York City, I’m always looking for ways to make my life easier and grocery shopping online with Peapod.com was right up my alley. Just an example of the craziness in my life, just as I was winding down for the night, I realized I forgot to place my order on Peapod.com.  I thought […]

How to Be the Best Patient: Give the Doctor What He Wants #VZWBuzz

Kinsa

Right now my littlest one has pneumonia and its such a sad sight to see him like this. He’s battling a fever with runny nose and a cough that sometimes turns into vomiting.  All I want to do is snuggle with him and make him feel better. Usually by this time my home is a mess. I’ve got thermometers every where (Type A mom that needs several readings each time), I’m always scrambling to find a piece of paper to quickly jot down what his temp is and if, what medications I gave him.  What results is little random scraps […]

The Only View is My Point of View with the Panasonic A500

a500

I try very hard to be a practical gal. While I was intrigued by the buzz around a certain “adventure-action camera” because everyone I knew either had one or wanted one, I couldn’t come up with a reason why I really needed one (to my purse holding hubby).  I saw a few cool videos of people’s snowboard point of view, and while it was cool, it wasn’t the most polished and sometimes even nauseating.  How often would a person say, I need my “adventure-action camera”?  I couldn’t imagine spending all that money and only taking it out for use, once in a […]
