So check this out -- who says we can't think a little outside the box when it comes to using out tech accessories?
This weekend, I had a marvelous time at the Los Angeles Cookie Convention and thank goodness I had my new Monster Mobile PowerCard with me. It's slim and light and didn't add any weight to my purse. Once I was carrying cookies an baking tools that I'd purchased, I was especially grateful for that. It is definitely a tool I'll be adding to my work bag and my work travel strategy!
It's reasonably priced and also comes in an even slimmer version -- something that would be especially handy at the red carpet events I man as part of my job -- when I wish I could carry a smaller bag but often can't because of all the tech I carry. :)
But that's not all! Because I spent yesterday plugging away on my beloved laptop at home. At three years old it's kind of on its last leg these days and I'm starting to think I might need a new one. It has a massive dent in one of the corners that has made a USB port unusable. And I needed to have my cell phone beside me and it needed to be charged. I just couldn't go plug it into the wall -- I needed to be checking it. So I remembered happily what was in my purse.
So there I was, in my own home, using the PowerCard on my sofa! Presto!

Now, before you get all judgey on the selfie case, as I did when I first looked at it, let me tell you some ways it can come in handy! It is NOT just for selfies! Go hands-free for calls, video chat, time-lapse video, GPS navigation and more. That in of itself? Brilliant. For bloggers, actually, it could be GREAT for making quick "how to" videos or make-up demos. I'm probably going to end up keeping mine in the car because I don't have GPS in my car and this will solve the issue of how I currently use my phone for that... And I won't say more cause I don't wanna get a lecture... But anyway, the special gel material the case is made from functions like millions of tiny suction cups so that your smartphone will stick to glass, mirror, acrylic, marble and other smooth, flat and glossy vertical surfaces (for you moms out there, I feel like this is perfect to entertain the kids in the backseat, by the way, if you have something to stick it to).
This morning, I was in an odd bind. You see, right now I don't have a mirror in my bedroom. And the lighting in my bathroom is horribly unforgiving. The joys of apartment living, right? And I was trying to get something out of my eye. So again, PRESTO! That selfie case went right onto my closet door. I got the gunk out of my eye and then did my eye makeup.
Good, right? I was pretty pleased with myself. Despite the look of cynicism on my face. :)
And I wanted too show you how it stuck to things so I used my hall closet and my iPad....
It's pretty cool, right? Like an amused child I spent a little too much time putting it onto surfaces all over my apartment to see where I could make it stick. CLICK HERE for more info.
I always enjoy testing out new products and take special pride in finding new ways to use them in routine parts of my life! A touchdown for these two new favorites.
