Fantastic Last Minute Black Friday, Cyber Weekend and Cyber Monday Deals

by on November 25th, 2016

Today is one of the most epic shopping days of the year. I was even bold enough to go to Best Buy in hopes of getting the new Mini Nintendo Classic Edition late last night. Not only were there lines that seemed to run as long as the great wall of China they did not have the new Mini Nintendo Classic Edition yet. The word on the streets is that most retailers do not have Mini Nintendo Classic Edition in stock. I left defeated but that doesn’t mean you will have the same luck especially with some of these apps and deals for a successful Cyber Weekend.

The Flipp App makes shopping easy by providing the most weekly digital circulars and coupons from over 800 local retailers. The Flipp App also lets you create shopping lists as well as a clipping feature so you can save the coupons you want to use for your future shopping. You can find out more and how to get the Flipp App by clicking here.

Smartphone Cases And Accessories Galore

by on November 17th, 2016

Since the iPhone 7 and 7 plus came out there has been a multitude of new cases and wireless devices released on the market. Just imagine, when the new Motorola Moto, Google’s Pixel, modular smartphones and rumored release of the Samsung Galaxy 8 for 2017…there will be cases galore to choose from.

How does one decide?

I have learned after the many years I have written for tech everyone has their own opinion on what case either functionally or aesthetically. For instance my poor iPhones goes into battle every time it enters my purse or in general in my possession therefore to my cases need to be rugged and Nina certified.

My two life savers and rugged products to protect my electronic devices from having a tragic end of life has been Corning® Gorilla® Glass and BALLISTIC Jewel Series cases. The BALLISTIC cases corners and raised lips provide protection against scratches, corner drops and surface shock. It also protects your smart phone for a drop of up to 6 feet high.

Then you have my youngest brother who takes care of his electronics and has been testing out the Nomad’s iPhone Leather case. The Nomad’s iPhone Leather case is a beautiful case but in my hands it will be demolished in seconds. The only other flaw with the the Nomad’s iPhone Leather case is you cannot get it wet or rather avoid from doing so.

For my fashionista’s I recommend checking out the Liquid Glitter Voila iPhone 7 case.

For those that know me they know I love to dance, not that great at it but I try. I was excited to find out there is a National Dance Day and it’s also during the 2016 Classic Game Fest in Austin, Texas on July 30th. Picture it, me doing the Roger Rabbit, Kid n’ Play and Running Man from booth to booth at the convention center. That’s one way to celebrate National Dance Day and get noticed at the Classic Game Fest.

Dizzy Feet Foundation has partnered with Heely’s this year and will have live events in LA, Washington D.C. and Orlando on National Dance Day 2016. Dizzy Feet Foundation National Dance Day campaign encourages Americans to embrace dance as a fun and positive way to maintain good health and fight obesity.

So shake your tail feather on the 30th in celebration of National Dance Day and get your grove on. If you see me at the Classic Game Fest come say hi and dance with me! I’ll be the one in the Flashion Statement LED shirt.  For more information on National Dance Day click here and below is the official press release.

The Dizzy Feet Foundation (DFF) is proud to announce that the 7th annual National Dance Day will take place on Saturday, July 30 in Los Angeles, Washington, D.C., and Orlando.   The event will continue the tradition of last year’s ground-breaking alliance of some of the nation’s leading cultural organizations who are joining together to promote the benefits and joy of dance for everyone.  This year, DFF is proud to also partner with Heelys to help encourage Americans of all ages to incorporate dance into their lives. “Heelys is thrilled to partner with Dizzy Feet this year for their Annual National Dance Day.” says Liz Mandracchia, VP of Marketing, Heelys.  The Dizzy Feet mission to promote freedom of expression through dance is a natural alignment to the core values of the Heelys brand.  Heelys encourages kids and Americans of all ages to explore their freedom and lead active and healthy lifestyles through the benefit of movement.”

SUPER TUESDAY: Stowaway Cosmetics

by on March 1st, 2016

Super TuesFor the past 7 years of writing I always had a rule to never double post for the publications I write for however this is one of those exceptions because my fans may get some free Stowaway Cosmetics!

Stowaway Cosmetics, a line of makeup in sizes you can carry, is putting its own funny twist on the day and encouraging customers to exercise their right to vote on their favorite Stowaway Cosmetics for SUPER TUESDAY. I personally find the names of Stowaway Cosmetics products absolutely hilarious!

Super Tuesday

TODAY and TODAY only Stowaway Cosmetics are exercising your right to vote for your favorite stowaway product & it will reveal a special treat! Once you vote Stowaway Cosmetics will reveal a coupon to get that product for free with any $50 purchase.

Besides the SUPER TUESDAY deal I think Stowaway Cosmetics are great for ladies who travel a lot and going through security check. Each time I tend to lose a beauty product due to the ounces (Thanks TSA).

Stowaway Cosmetics products are perfect for the lady who travels and doesn’t want to deal with obstacles before boarding a plane.

Full details and voting here: stowawaycosmetics.com/supertuesday.

Celebrate Women’s History Month with Fiverr

by on February 29th, 2016

womens-history-monthHAPPY MONDAY EVERYONE!

Doesn’t it seem like every day or month, now honors a different group of people or cause – check google.com to see their latest creative expression of these things. I’m not mad about it – I love ‘celebrate your favorite ice cream day’ or ‘free pancake day’ but March is a little more important than that. March is the month to celebrate Women’s History Month. Valentine’s Day existing – makes every other day feasible so join me in celebrating the accomplishments of many extraordinary, yet often forgotten, women.

Women’s History Month runs from March 1st to March 31st and thankfully, I am not the only one that believes they are worth honoring, Fiverr also agrees women are worth showcasing and they’re planning on doing so March 3rd in New York City. For the first time ever (please correct me if I’m wrong), Fiverr is hosting an evening of celebration – a celebration for women in NYC – women that are artists and entrepreneurs. If you are interested in attending, check out their eventbrite . Please use ‘CUTEGEEK’ as the promo code to attend at a 50% discount. #winning

Women are a ’cause’ worth acknowledging and praising – a very worthy cause and Fiverr recognizes this and is hosting an incredible event to honor them. We (women) are expected to do so much, in addition to keeping mankind ‘alive’,so lets just kick back and enjoy being women. We’re expected to be pretty, kind, compassionate, intelligent, badasses…all the while earning a fraction of what their male counterparts earn – okay…I’ll end my rant there. Let’s pick the many hats we’re supposed to wear, and wear them proudly. On March 3rd, I’ll be wearing my MBA grad, Latina from NYC, 1st generation, coolest aunt, most energetic friend, and super geeky hat.

I can’t wait to meet ya’ll – please join me in supporting Fiverr and the many women worth honoring in our lives. I’ll be wearing red lipstick <3

***Fiverr is a service that allows people to get things done – with the help of a community of doers. Need a video edited in HD? Find it on Fiverr. Want a cool logo? Find it on Fiverr. Want a portrait of you as a cartoon? Find it on Fiverr. If you’d like to sign up to use Fiverr’s services (please do) and use ‘CUTEGEEK’ as a promo code. It’ll give you 20% off your order. I’ll be posting about my experience using Fiverr soon, so look out for that posting.

Last Minute Valentine’s Day 2016 Gift Guide

by on February 12th, 2016

It’s less than 2 days away from Valentine’s day and you still don’t have a gift or a good idea for a gift for that special someone. Don’t panic! Below is a list of cool gift ideas for Valentine’s Day or for any other special occasion if you don’t celebrate Valentine’s day.

Love Board

Velleman MK101 Flashing Led Sweetheart is for the true geek couple gift. The user installs the 28 brilliant red LED lights on to the heart-shaped circuit board and watch as they light up and flash. It is currently available on Amazon and is under $10.00 If you are an average Amazon user you may not get this till Monday however if you have Amazon Prime you should get it in time! This is so geeky I adore it!

Shine vday

If you have a healthy geek or your special someone likes working out Shine from Misfit has some great products. They have gift-ready box sets, bundles, accessories and are all 30% to 40% off through February 14th. I have been a huge fan of Shine since day one and have reviewed a few units. What I love about Shine is that it is cross functional by giving you more option to wear it besides just on your wrist.

Uncommon Goods

If you have a little more time than 2 days for your Valentine’s Day Date check out http://www.uncommongoods.com/gifts/valentines-day/valentines-day-gifts for unique gifts. I personally love celebrating NOT on the 14th when everyone and their momma is eating out. I have found this is trending as a lot of my friends do the same. So Uncommon Goods is a good option for the late celebrators plus they have some VERY unique Valentine’s Day gifts.

Puko

How many times is your special someone always running out of a charge on their smart phone? I know all the excuses (my phone is running out of a charge, I left my charger at home and yada yada) because I use to use them all the time until my new iPhone 6S and portable charger. Recently launched, the new Puku Light is a lightweight powerful portable charger featuring a 5000 mAh battery. The Puku Light is compatible with smartphones, tablets, mobile and hand-held USB-charged devices. The Puku Light is available in four different colors and comes with a two-year warranty that guarantees a defect-free, quality product.

Dudes gifts

I think this is the coolest idea for man gifts and not just for Valentine’s Day is Man Crates. Within the crate your man will find snacks, gadgets, gear and video games for men. They then ship them with a crowbar for him to open up his crate. I have never heard of a company with this unique of an option to open your gift but I think this is awesome. They have 24 hour shipping before noon. To learn more about the Man Crates or would like to shop the Man Crates site click here.

Of course if you’re a traditionalist and want to go with flowers or candy these three sites offer same day shipping: Shari’s Berries, Cookies by Design, or FTD.

I hope this helps you guys! If you need a Valentine’s Day Beauty Guide for your Valentine’s day date click here for my article on Hi-Tech Chic.

Everyone have a lovely Valentine’s weekend and happy early Presidents day!
