Years ago I bought a new TV that allowed for an internet connection (wired of course) so I plugged it in. I remember being so excited about being able to surf the web on my TV! After I turned it on the first time and saw how hard it was to interact with the browser using a conventional remote & never touched it again. However I never lost the desire to surf the web using my big screen! Then about a year ago I bought a new Smart TV which is much easier to use because of the apps but typing on a conventional remote is nothing short of torture!

I’m a bit of a sports and stats junky. If you’re like me, simply watching the games on TV isn’t enough. I crave interactivity with my teams – both virtual and real. That’s why my screen of choice is my tablet. It’s my portable lifeline to all things sports-related.

   It's that time of the year again when March Madness provides nail-biting excitement, unbelievable come-from-behind victories, spectacular upsets, the ups, the downs, and everything in between.

Most of the carpet in our house has been replaced with laminate flooring. We still have one room with carpet, but for the most part it's laminate throughout. Finding ways to keep the laminate floors dust and pet hair free has been challenging. I thought having a short hair dog would mean that I wouldn't have to be cleaning up pet hair every 5 seconds. Boy, oh boy, was I wrong. Pippie, for having really short hair, sheds like crazy.


I first tried the Dyson DC59 at an event last week. They actually had the handheld vacuum from another company that I have been using in my home, one I had received for review last year, to compare it with. It worked well enough, but it didn’t seem to have even half the pick-up and suction that the Dyson had, as we vacuumed up some powder from the demo floor. I was thrilled to see how well the Dyson DC59 worked vs. a competitor, it really showed the difference in power!


Did  you make fitness one of your goals in the new year? I told myself that I need to get out of the house five days a week for a walk/run. The easiest time I have found for me to do this is right after I put one child on the bus…because I have alone time for about forty minutes. No stroller I need to push! No constant questions about every neighbor’s yard we pass by. I can listen to my music!

The New Year is here and it is a great time to improve your fitness routine. My morning fitness routine is to ride my bike for 30 minutes, run for 30 minutes, and stretch for 10 minutes. Morning exercise gives a boost to my energy level for the day. I have been doing a great job on my fitness goals to consistently bike and run. Still, I am always looking for the latest fitness trends to keep me motivated. 


Best Buy is celebrating Lunar New Year with Best Buy E-Gift Cards inspired by this holiday! Best Buy supports events which they believe are of importance to employees, customers, and communities. The upcoming Lunar New Year, also popularly called as Chinese New Year, is one of those important celebrations. Having Chinese blood in me, I truly appreciate this gesture from Best Buy. For Asians around the globe, including Asian-Americans, Lunar New Year not only celebrates the beginning of the year but also the ending of Winter and the anticipated arrival of Spring.

Where will you be doing your holiday shopping this year?
How about Best Buy for all of your technology needs?

I’m hoping Best Buy is your holiday shopping destination of choice for all your technology and appliance product gifting needs this year. As a regular patron, let me share why.   A couple of things that come to mind are free store pick up, a fabulous holiday showroom  —- and we can’t forget forget their low price guarantee, and more choices means more savings, which in turn means MORE gifts!

With the Holidays fast approaching (where did October and November go?) now is the time that everyone has shopping on their mind.  The holidays are also one of the most popular times for electronics!  Let Best Buy be your one stop shopping destination for everyone on your list!

We got rid of our land line a long time ago and depend on our cellular services.  While we love our cellular services, there are definitely a few things that could be improved such as contracts, pricing, and even the sales pressure at stores. Best Buy Mobile Specialty Stores and Zact understand my concerns and have come out with some great options that are quickly evolving the cellular market for customers! 

Let me share a few highlights that are perfect for trendy moms and their families:

Anything you need done to your mobile device, Best Buy Mobile Specialty Stores is there to help you out. Having a Best Buy Mobile Specialty Store is very convenient too, you don't have to fight the crowd at the bigger Best Buy while getting your mobile device taken care of. Check out www.bestbuymobile.com for any of your questions on what they have to offer.

When you think of Best Buy, you probably think of their stores full of electronics. But did you know there’s a Best Buy Mobile? I didn’t, but there are 414 of these specialty stores nationwide. Most are located near shopping malls so they’re convenient and easy to find.

Best Buy has asked me to share my opinion and experiences with ENERGY STAR appliances.  When a family prepares its monthly budget, the energy bill often takes a large cut out of the bottom line. Did you know that the average family home energy bill is $2,000? If your family could cut a percentage of that cost wouldn't it be beneficial to your bottom line? 

I was so excited to receive my Jawbone UP. I had just decided about a week prior to receiving it to start being better with my diet and fitness, so it couldn’t have come at a better time. Right before I got pregnant in 2011 (yikes!), I started a quest to lose weight…not only because I could stand to lose some (that’s what working full time while getting your Master’s degree and taking the CPA exam will do to ya) but to get as healthy as I can since I was trying to get pregnant. I lost 12 pounds in less than 2 months and I felt great.

The reviewer has been compensated in the form of a Best Buy Gift Card and/or received the product/service at a reduced price or for free.
