Glympse the coolest app around town #VZWBuzz #Ad

Last week one of the coolest things happened to me the other week thanks to the latest update Verizon Software update to my Droid Turbo.  Anyone who knows me personally knows that I am notorious for saying “I’m 5 minutes away” or “I’m on my way”, it’s my favorite 2 lines and I am tend to be the late one in the family…lol.  Don’t judge me, it’s a Diva Thing.  So about 2 weeks ago, the Little Diva in Training sent me a text asking when I was coming, I immediately responded “I’m on my way”.  Normal exchange between us, yet something was different.

Get Rewarded with Verizon Smart Rewards #VZWBuzz #MoreChicago

I am just one of those Divas that likes to be recognized and rewarded for the simplest things like….paying my Verizon cell phone bill.  I mean who doesn’t want earn points that can be used to get things for free or at a really discounted rate for those finer things in life.  You all know that I am a shopper and at times I can’t always find coupons to help me save, but then there are times when a wonderful option comes along.  Through that option I can pair coupons with a great program like the Verizon Smart Rewards Program to save even more.  Let me give you an example of what I mean.

Traveling with Verizon Wireless #VZWBuzz #MoreChicago #Ad

My New Years Resolution was to get out and see the world, by that I mean travel more and stay still less.  There is so much more to explore that I am determined to make this year the year that the Diva Travels.  First stop on my list to travel for 2015, was to have a fun filled vacation with the kids in Lake Geneva, WI.  Okay note the key words I am traveling with the kids so that means that I needed to keep them entertained for the 2 hour drive from Joliet to Fontana, Wi.  Now there was no way in the world I would have survived this trip with listening to “their” music or tablets the entire trip.  So thanks to Verizon Wireless and my Droid Turbo, I was able to make a compromise.  Armed with their headphones, tablets, and my Droid Turbo we made the trip drive easy for all 3 of us to enjoy.  How you are wondering?  Well, it was because of the hotspot on my #DroidTurbo phone, which by the way is an exclusive phone through Verizon Wireless.

Verizon Wireless:  New Year New Device #MoreChicago #VZWBuzz #Ad

I know you have heard the saying “New Year New Me” well that’s sooooo last year, this year switch it up by challenging yourself to a “New Year New Device”.  I mean you can’t quite possibly enter the New Year with an old phone, it is imperative that you upgrade to the latest devices and accessories for the New Year.  With that said this Diva has some suggestions of things that not only are great ways to Upgrade You, but are affordable options that won’t break the bank.  All of these options are from Verizon Wireless – America’s Largest 4G LTE Network.

So what is my suggestion?  Well #1 Suggestion is the Motorola Droid Turbo, if you haven’t checked out my review on the Droid Turbo, I strongly encourage you to check it out.  I have been using this phone for almost 2 months now and as much as I Love my Note 3, I have to be honest and tell you that the battery life alone has been enough to make me switch to using it more than my Note, plus it’s an extremely speedy phone.  Seeing that I do a ton of blogging and social networking from my phone I need a phone that can keep up with me and the Droid Turbo does that.

@VerizonInsider Thank You for my #SamsungGalaxy Camera

I won my Verizon Samsung Galaxy Camera at BlogHer ’13 and while I was under NO obligation to write a blogpost about my experience I have and this blogpost expresses 100% my own opinion!

@VerizonInsider Thank You for my #SamsungGalaxy Camera

At the end of July I attend a 3 day blogging conference called Blogher ’13 that was hosted in Downtown Chicago.  BlogHer is a conference that allows Bloggers to network with brands, interact with other bloggers and learn new/exciting technology and techniques.  This was my second year attending this event as I had attended the BlogHer ’12 in New York last August.  As I was last year I was eager to network and see what goodies I would take away from the conference, as SWAG (that’s the goodies that we get to take home) is something that us bloggers are eager to get our hands on.  Well I have to say I got to take home one HOT DAMN piece of swag that I will cherish FOREVER.  Here’s my swagalicious story on how I got my hands on a Verizon Samsung Galaxy Camera!

I arrived at the Sheraton on that Thursday night, excited to attend some exclusive events that were happening that evening the first event on my agenda was the SweetSuite, a private blogger event that was filled with lots and lots and lots of toys.  It was at this event that I had a chance to see a Samsung Galaxy Camera in action and I mentally said to myself “I need one of those.”  I was hanging at the Pinkie Cooper and the Jet Sets table when a fellow blogger took a picture of Pinkie and I because well our hair matched and we both are Divalicious.  When she took the picture I was checking out her camera because I thought it had a slick look to it, so I asked her if I could see it and of course she gave me a little background on the camera including the cost.  Now I will be honest I am a frugal blogger and I love good bargains but I am ALWAYS willing to pay a little bit more for quality products and from what I could see this camera (the Samsung Galaxy Camera) was pretty snazzy and it just could’ve been worth the price.  Nonetheless I was here to network so I continued to walk around and rub elbows at the SweetSuite, but that camera was still on my mind, it was just so ME!
