January is National Get Organized Month, so I put together a list of apps and tech that help me get through the day and get sh!t done! (But don’t worry, you can use them every month of the year!)

Google Pixelbook Review

If I had to guess, I’d say most people have both a computer and a tablet. But what if you could combine those products into one? The Google Pixelbook does just that, and I tested it out for a week to see if it’s effective!Read More »

Apartment Friendly Smart Home Products

For those of you that live in an apartment and love new technology that helps you get sh!t done, smart home products are both a blessing and a curse. Many products require installation, like a home thermostat or door lock. These installations are often frowned upon by landlords, and are sometimes useless even if they could be installed.

For your convenience, I’ve put together a list of apartment friendly smart home products that won’t get you kicked out and make your life easier:Read More »

Fossil Q Venture Smartwatch Review

Now before you roll your eyes and close my blog because of another rose gold thing: stop! The Q Venture also comes in black, silver, and gold!

I know I’m not the only one that adds things to my to do list that I’ve already done just so I can immediately check them off. I’ve tried so many ways to keep track of to do lists, whether it’s keeping them in a physical notebook or downloading an app. Because I have this overwhelming knowledge of to do list options, I figured I would share my most recent find!Read More »

Why Physical Keyboards Matter in a World Full of Glass

Once upon a time, there was a world where having a full physical keyboard was a very big deal. You no longer had to use T-9 to text, and you could fill the entire 140 character limit with ease! Keyboards quickly became the norm, and trying to type on anything else seemed like a ridiculous idea. Today, the scene is a little different.

Oh man I used to love my BlackBerry.” And as my new favorite commercial states, I reply, “I still do.”
