A Little Sparkle With A Giveaway

Every once in a while, I take some photographs…ok, totally kidding..I take pictures almost every day, whether it be with my DSLR or my iPhone.

I have the pleasure of alternating between two different Nikon cameras. One for work (Nikon D90), and one for pleasure (Nikon D700).  I have a camera strap from My Funky Camera on both of the cameras that I use. I have been using my work one for almost two years now, and it still looks PERFECT.  There is no fraying and it cleans up nicely. When it gets extra dirty, I use baby wipes to clean it up. You may have seen my famous Crime Scene Camera Strap in some of my photos or even in person.

My Funky Camera has two new super cute designs that they came out with, just in time for the Holidays. They have a Pink Sparkle and a Silver Sparkle camera strap. They retail for $32, which is an excellent price for such a beautifully designed camera strap.

#PopCameraAction Pop Secret Twitter Party

At the beginning of the month, I held a movie party at my house where my best friend and her daughter came over for a fun night.  We all had a great time, and ate tons of Pop Secret popcorn.  I was able to get the kids to pay attention for a few minutes, where I got some photographs and even shot some video. They were hilarious, and it made for even better video editing later.

At the end of my post, I featured a giveaway that I was hosting for: a $50 giftcard, Pop Secret Popcorn, and a Flip Video Camera, which I will be notifying the winner soon.

Cisco Valet: Back-To-School Giveaway

Cisco Valet

I am always looking for the latest and greatest in technology. This is a great router, but the Cisco Valet is not just any router. It’s a simple to install, easy to use, router and parental online service in one!

My friend Shannon decided to install her Cisco Valet the other evening. I told her don’t do it unless you want your internet to be down for a few hours.   She shocked me.  She  literally had 5 computers up and running in under a half an hour. Thanks to a simple USB Key, the Valet virtually installs itself. You need to just plug it into the computer and it does the work.

The Valet is a new wireless router made just for people who are intimated by the traditional router. The Valet is made by the folks who brought us the Flip video camcorders and it comes from the tech savvy Cisco, a router brand that people know and trust.

Along with its super easy setup, the Valet creates a guest network to go along with your main network. This gives your friends and family the ability to connect to the guest network – without disrupting your network. (Think of when you go into Panera and log on to their network).

The best feature of the The Valet is the parental control software which is perfect for Angry Kid. You can set restrictions blocking certian websites or cutting off Internet access after a certain time on school nights or weekends. After a password is set up, content can be blocked on some or all devices.  Time restrictions on Internet usage can be set up here, with different settings for school nights and weekends. This is a great feature if your child has their own computer.

The Prize:

I will be giving away (1) Cisco Valet Router.

1. Leave a comment below:Tell me what feature you like best about the Valet.

OfficeMax: Back-to-School Giveaway

School starts in three weeks here. I’m trying to not think about it, but I have to. I have only one child and he will be starting Kindergarten. This is our first year where we have to buy a backpack, a lunchbox and school supplies. Angry Kid is quite excited to get everything ready to start school.

I think I shocked my mom when I told her that we have a supply list. We received it in the mail a few weeks ago. A simple list with supplies to bring to the classroom, divided up by our last name. With budget constraints, the schools and the teachers have been hit hard here. I think most schools send home a supply list now. They usually publish them on the school website.

When shopping for office or school supplies, I usually hit one of the bigger stores, like OfficeMax where I can find everything in one place. I hate having to go to multiple stores just to find a few things.  OfficeMax has individual pages/forms set up by school grade on their site with suggested office supplies. These lists are great in addition to your local school list, or in lieu of, if your school doesn’t have a list.
OfficeMax is helping you get ready for school by participating as my next giveaway sponsor!

The Prize:

I will be giving away (1) One Backpack with a $100 worth of school supplies from OfficeMax

Required Entry:

1. Leave a comment below: Check out the Back to School Lists on Office Max and tell me which list you will be using.

Flip Ultra HD: Back-to-School Giveaway

flipbackside

The Angry Family is very active in the technology field.  We try to keep up with the latest trends, when we can.  Approximately two years ago, I was introduced to the Flip Video brand.  I was amazed at the quality of video coming from this pocket-sized camera.  I started with a Flip Mino.

The Flip has a great price point of under $200.  I am amazed on how affordable technology is becoming.  I use my Flip all the time, and even keep it in the pocket in my purse.  It has been perfect for capturing those sporting events, silly songs, and birthday parties.

But technology, is always changing.  Now, Flip has introduced the Flip Ultra HD video camera which has excellent quality.  I received a Flip Ultra HD video camera for review and even took a little video for you.  Please be kind as I was trying to get ready for work. So, this is Angry Julie unedited, all natural.

The Flip UltraHD™ camcorder combines Flip Video’s signature shoot-and-share simplicity with the power of vivid, vibrant HD video. With 2 hours of record time, you’ll never miss another minute again. And because of UltraHD‘s pocket-sized portability, you’ll truly be able to capture HD video anytime, anywhere.

The Prize:

A Flip Ultra HD Video Camera with a value of $199.99.

Required Entry:

1. Leave a comment below: Tell me if you could interview anyone in the world with a Flip Ultra HD Video Camera, who would it be?
