Top 5 Smart Accessories

Good morning! I am hopping on a 7:15 flight this morning and heading to Orlando! I will check into the Grand Floridian, and then the press event will begin after lunch. Be sure to follow me on Twitter, instagram, and Facebook via the social media icons on my right sidebar of my blog. I will be live tweeting/etc. the event Thursday and Friday and you won’t want to miss the new information I will be posting! Also don’t worry, while I am gone I have some great guest posters who will be taking over my blog (I will also be popping in on a couple of days to post about press event info I learn). Be sure to show them some love!


I recently spoke about getting the new Blackberry Z10 smart phone. There was a bit of a learning curve, but I have enjoyed getting to know my phone. Now that I have used it a good bit, it’s time to think about accessories! here are five accessories that I found that I would love to try out for various reasons:

Nokia JBL Power Up Speaker– This is a wireless charging speaker with Legendary JBL® sound in a compact design. You can wirelessly charge your device simply by placing it on top of the speaker. It is also compatible with any Bluetooth®-enabled device.


LG wireless charging Bluetooth headset- This accessory features a solid, durable look and feel built into a compact and lightweight design. The geometric mesh surface is the contact point for Wireless Charging. The Power/Call button and Volume buttons are placed well for easy access while wearing the device.


Fitbit one- I have the FitBit zipp, but would love to try this one! During the day, it tracks your steps, distance, calories burned, and stairs climbed. At night, it measures your sleep cycle to help you see how to sleep better; and it can even wake you in the morning without waking other in your home. Your stats upload wirelessly to your computer and select mobile phones.  You can set goals, and track progress while competing with your friends.


Lifeproof armband- I already have a lifeproof case, so this armband would be great to have so I could wear it while I run instead of holding my phone. Made from breathable spandex, the wide strap and non-slip silicone dots keep it stable and comfortable as you move. The Velcro strap adjusts to fit most, and it’s also lightweight. Reflective markings make you more visible when training after dark.


Tagg pet tracker- This is a purpose-built tracking device that helps pet owners find and track their pet. The pet owner tells the Tagg system where they want their pet to be, and  if the pet ever leaves the Tagg zone, the owner receives text and email alerts. Tagg’s innovative technology quickly pinpoints the pet’s location using a mobile device or computer. The Tagg master kit includes three months of service. After the first three months, service costs $7.95/month and includes unlimited alert notifications

Friday Randoms

TGIF! This week flew by, and I still have so much to do! Funny how some weeks drag on while I don’t know where others went! My mom is coming to hang out with me today so I won’t be around as much as I usually am, but I have a few “little of this little of that” things to share with you today. Have a great one!


1.) You may have noticed on my left sidebar that I have been a Bulu Box ambassador for a month or so. They are such a great company to work with. Did you know that in addition to the regular monthly box you can get, that there is now also a weight loss box option? Also, if you sign up for a 6 month supply (regularly $60) you get $10 off with my discount code so only $50 for 6 months of a box on your door step every month of new fun samples to try. Not sure you are ready to commit to 6 months? Use the code for one FREE BOX! If you love it, go back then order the 6 month supply. You must go through the following link and use code  BULUGAN250 at checkout using THIS LINK.


2.) My friend Brian at Digital running is hosting an interstate challenge and it rewards participants with the first ever Digital Running Interstate Challenge Medal for completing a half marathon or a marathon in two different states during 2013.

Here’s how it works:

  1. Sign up for the challenge.
  2. Run a marathon or a half marathon in two different states between January 1, 2013 and December 31, 2013.
  3. Log your races here at
  4. We’ll verify the results you’ve reported with the official race results.
  5. We’ll send your medal once we’ve verified that you’ve completed the challenge.

What a great incentive just to run two races in two states! The cost is only $15.00, so sign up now. I will be doing the challenge!


3.) You have probably heard that Google Reader will be no more come this summer. There are a few options that people have found to help transition them smoothly to another reader, and I will be using Feedly. Check it out! Don’t forget to do something with your reader before July or you will be stuck!


4.) Verizon has asked me back to be an ambassador again! This will be my third round, and I can’t wait to see what device I get next. You can see posts on my current verizon toys below:
