AT&T Boom Swimmer Bluetooth Speaker for Busy Parents (Giveaway)

August 20, 2015 by  
Filed under electronic, entertainment, giveaways

I love music. Everywhere I go I make sure I have access to my playlists just in case a little downtime comes along. However, the one place that can sometimes pose a problem is when I’m near the water . . . like at the pool or in the shower. I’ve already dropped and cracked 2 phones this year and I really prefer not to lose another one to water damage. So when I heard about the Boom Swimmer Bluetooth Speaker from AT&T I figured I’d give it a try.

The Boom Swimmer is very lightweight and portable . . . only 2 inches tall and 2.5 inches in diameter. It’s covered in a soft rubber and is IPX7 Rated which means that it can be placed in 1 meter of water for 30 minutes. Of course, this makes the Boom Swimmer waterproof.

The device can be fully charged within 2 hours and hold 8 hours of playback . . . perfect for a full day at the pool or beach.

When our Boom Swimmer arrived I was pleasantly surprised at how small it actually was. I liked the comfortable rubbery exterior and that all the control buttons were easy to push and activate.

It came with 2 different attachments . . . a tail-looking hook which allowed me to easily attach the speaker to my shower head or a beach chair.

There’s also a suction cup attachment which will secure the Boom Swimmer to any flat surface.

To sync the speaker to my iPhone all I had to do was activate the bluetooth feather on my phone and within seconds I was hooked up and ready to go.

But most importantly, the sound was pretty amazing. It was loud, clear and full of depth. I couldn’t believe that rich a sound was coming from such a small speaker. And my kids loved it! They had so much fun singing and dancing around the pool as they listened to their favorite songs. It made being in the water that much more fun for them.

The Boom Swimmer Bluetooth Speaker is priced at $50.99 and is available at Hawaii AT&T Stores and online at att.com. Get yours for your next trip to the beach, the pool, or if you’re like me . . . to enjoy your favorite songs in the shower.

Reliving the Past with Netflix (Giveaway)

April 17, 2014 by  
Filed under entertainment, giveaways

There are many things about my high school years that I remember fondly . . . Senior Prom, my first crush, and being in the marching band. However, there are also a few things I’d prefer to forget like those Dove shorts, my feathered hairstyle, and the time I wore 2 different shoes to school. In any case, it’s always fun to look back and remember a more simple time.

One great way to do this is to check out Netflix’s library of oldies but goodies which can be conveniently streamed right into your living room for the entire family to enjoy. Here are some of their classic picks:

And for the little ones . . .

Our family chose to watch the Care Bears Movie. When I was younger, Care Bears were the “in” thing. I remember those cuddly plush bears with the different icons on their tummies. I liked that these bears represented happiness and good traits that we all hope our children acquire. My favorites were always Cheer Bear and Wish Bear and it was so nice to share these lovable characters with my daughters.
