FREE or almost free Activities to Keep the Kids BUSY – AMEN!

DSC_1617

Camp is expensive.  I don’t have thousands of dollars to spend on camp every year and its tough.  3 kids while working full time is a hard struggle.  Every summer we just wing it and before you know it summer is already over.  One of the perks about living in NYC is full of fun, enriching and FREE events to keep you and your kids busy.  In between visits to the zoo and the aquarium with our WCS Family Premium Membership (best value and amazing deal!), trips to the beach with friends we are taking the city up on their […]

In case you have ever been in the same boat as me, I thought I’d share a few gift ideas that […]

About Ellie Beatus

I have experienced many incredible things in my life, but none as amazing as when I become a mom. I may work as a full time registered nurse, but I am also a full time mother.

One for All, the Dyson Digital Slim DC59 #cutthecord

mini

It’s no secret, I am a huge Dyson fan. The test for me as far as suction power goes, is always that horrid trunk carpeting which every tiny little grain gets stuck for an eternity in.  Ever since I vacuumed my car trunk right before handing it in to end my lease, I was hooked.  2 Dyson upright vacuums and 2 handheld cordless later, we haven’t looked back.  With 3 kids, having a vacuum cleaner that you can depend on is so important.  Gone are the days I am vacuuming once a week, in fact it seems like I am […]

Galaxy Gifts from Samsung #VZWBuzz

note 3

So maybe I missed the memo on this one, but did you know your Samsung device may come loaded with a whole lotta gifts?   It certainly provided a few nice surprises when I just happened upon a few accidentally like an entire year of Evernote Premium on my Samsung Galaxy Note 3!  Eeeek!  You know how much I adore Evernote, obsessed even. It was such a nice perk even if I didn’t love my Samsung device. It was only in conversation that I learned many of the Samsung phones come with it’s own suite of gifts dubbed Galaxy Gifts! […]

Safety You Can See at Dorel Juvenile Group #ThisBuiltAmerica

a-THIS-BUILT-AMERICA-386x217

It’s always fascinating to see what goes into making products we use on a daily basis.  AOL’s newest series This Built America took an in-depth behind the scenes look at Dorel Juvenile Group, the makers of some of my favorite brands that I depend on to keep my children safe – Safety 1st, Quinny and Maxi-Cosi.  I was extremely impressed to find out that Dorel has invested more than $20 million in its state-of-the-art Dorel Technical Center for Child Safety to drive technological advancements in child passenger safety. They have continued to be at the forefront petitioning the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration to […]

Lock Up Your Phone #Samsung #S5 #VZWBuzz

S5

With identity theft on the rise it’s important to take steps to ensure your data is safe.   If you’re like me, your phone has become more than an accessory to your life, it’s a necessity.   My reliance on it for day to day survival may be more extreme than others, especially as a social media mom.   I can forget everything else, but I can never forget my phone.  It’s devastating to me when the battery dies, imagine if I lost it? The Samsung S5 comes packed with a little known fort knox level security package. One of […]

Can One Accessory Make a Camera? #Nikon #D3300 #DisneyKids

wu-1a

When it comes to cameras, I’m a bit of a purest.  I can often be found standing on my soapbox and shouting, it’s not the camera, it’s the photographer that makes a great shot.  So it’s rare when I come across an accessory that could really make me declare it AMAZING!  Perhaps it’s because I’m a social media mom and this little accessory makes my life so much easier and not to mention so much prettier.  The photographer in me always wants beautiful shots and the camera phone just doesn’t cut it.  Yes there are some great camera phones but […]

Marching to the beat of your own drum with #Bose Soundlink Mini #VZWBuzz

172079_10150134545770159_8353836_o

What ever happened to sound systems?  You know the full surround sound with woofers and giant speakers.  I don’t know how it happened or even when it happened but they have completely disappeared from our home.  It was a profoundly sad realization especially when I’ve always thought our lives should be put to music.  You know like in movies.  Am I the only one that thinks that?  For me music has always been an emotional expression.  Just like Meredith and Christina on Grey’s Anatomy, I’ve been known to break out into a spontaneous dance.  I didn’t even need a dance […]
