Music to daddy’s ears – the Sonos Music System

Father’s Day is just around the corner and there are so many ways to show the special dad in your life how much you love and appreciate him. Let’s see…you can go the breakfast-in-bed route, the day-of-golf route or the I’ll-mow-the-lawn-for-you...
Calling all Stevie Ray Vaughan wannabes

Calling all Stevie Ray Vaughan wannabes

My husband is a pilot by day and budding musician at night, blasting tunes on his collection of electric guitars, amps, and mixers, which is really awesome when you’re trying to keep kids asleep. That’s why I’m considering picking up this cool gadget...

Pump up the volume with a teeny tiny speaker

I’m not afraid to admit how excited I get when I find a cool little gadget that makes life better without blowing my budget. And that’s just what this teeny speaker (yes, that’s a speaker!) did. The X-Mini capsule speaker packs a huge punch, making...

Tokidoki is all ears

Tokidoki is all ears

I come by my love all things kawaii starting with Hello Kitty back in the 1970s. And while I realize I’m too mature now (cough) to deck myself out entirely in Japanese pop-art accessories, a little cuteness keeps the stuffy out of being a grownup. I’m...
Sweet audio dreams

Sweet audio dreams

Ever since my kids got their very own MP3 players, they’ve become heavily music-dependent. Lots of times I’m okay with that, but I’m certainly not going to let them sleep with headphones on. And neither do I want to be listening to battle of the...
