3 Favorite Gadgets for the Technology Driven

I am a retired woman that loves her toys...yes women want to die with more toys than anyone else too. I love technology and buy all the good stuff as soon as it appears.  However, somethings are so good that I don't want to replace them....ever!

  1. Zooka Wireless Speaker for iPad and Bluetooth Devices (Red)When you buy one of these little babies you get to choose from 8 different colors. The speaker comes with a rod stowed in the end that acts as a stand. It connects wirelessly to your pad, smartphone or computer so you can play music no matter where you are. There is a slot in the top where your iPad or iPhone can stand up with the a cut out for the on/off button. A charge on it battery lasts a very long time. It is perfect for taking with you outside in your yard to even to a local brew pub where you can play your own music at the distant picnic table.  The device is 10 inches long and weighs 1.2 lbs. It is available on Amazon. 
  2. Benvista Photozoom Pro 5 computer program to edit my pictures that you see on my blogs.  The PhotoZoom program allows me to crop photos down to the point that they are pixelated, load them into the program and it will smooth the pixels out for me. I love it.     
  3. FitBit Fitness Wristband and Accessories This cool little device, either in the wristband style or clip on style, keeps me motivated to exercise, eat correctly and even drink water. I am linked to a tracking app on my iPhone from the FitBit wirelessly. It continually records my movement and even my sleep patterns. It is so easy to stay healthier with wonderful toy like this.

So there you have it...I own all of the devices and absolutely love them. I think anyone would want to get these for a gift...especially that techy woman on your list.

Best Gifts: Why Lego Duplos?

I know, you want your child to be a Lego genius creating all over the place. Well I am here to tell you that the Lego Duplo are a miracle when it come to young hands. Children in my family play with them no matter their age. The big will sit with the little and play away the hours. There is something about the size of the blocks that makes them easy to manipulate and the Lego Duplo designers have come up with some very cool packages.

Leather Fringe in IN! My nine year old granddaughter is a trend setter!

Vintage leather jackets are even better.  

How do I know?  Well my 9 year old granddaughter told me so and I think she is probably right.  The minute I saw her denim leather fringed jacket I wanted one just like. I need to go shopping!

I buy my blue jeans at the farm store just down the road and I am sure they will have leather fringed jackets. I live in the Portland, Oregon metro area.  You can take a country girl to the city but you never get the country out of the girl...especially if "country" is in style.  And, like I said, fringe is in...but then hasn't is always been so?

I want some leather fringe...what more can I say!

Wanted: Beautiful One of a Kind Handmade Swimsuit

I just love it when my at Retire In Style Daily News leads me to something wonderful to PIN and to Post!  Here is a swimsuit made by a clothing designer from NYC in an Etsy shop via a Krrb it button.    In an interview with Krrb, Christy Luo explained how she happened to design this one piece suit.  It seems that, like most of us, she gained a little weight and couldn't sport the two piece wonders in her closet.  Hence this darling bustier swimsuit.  Take a look at her website at Kooj and her Etsy store.

Keep cool!
