Makeup Review: Button Masher Lacquer – Be Excellent to Each Other

I am not much of a nail polish girl. Don’t get me wrong, I love the sparkle and pretty color. However, I am awful at keeping up with it, so I usually stick to basics and keep layering over the chips. But my friend and owner of PHLL Nail Polish, Esther Fox,


Replacing My Converse: Keen + Inserts

A month ago I went to the doctor with ankle pain, pain I assumed was caused from either skating or the running regimen I’d started. Come to find out, the culprit was more likely my beloved Converse. Years of wearing shoes with no arches had strained my achilles tendon. Sadly, it was


Gaming with RSI: The Avenger Controller Mod Review

About a month ago I wrote a post about gaming with RSI, wondering what solutions other had found. A few people messaged me about a product called the Avenger Controller. So I went over to their site to check it out. The Avenger Controller isn’t a controller per se. It’s an medieval looking overlay


Noms Review: Red Bull Limited Edition Flavors

Before I get into the review, I feel I must confess my love of Red Bull. It’s the kind of bias I feel I should disclose. It gives me the best effect (alert but no jitters) and I like when I go to their website they feature athletes instead of bikini girls.


Product Review: Boxsome Boxes

There’s a new “box of random fun” type service that’s come out, it’s called Boxsome and it’s ran by Top Hat Sasquatch. Since it is Top Hat Sasquatch it’s nostalgia based. This one’s a bit different from your typical box subscriptions though. First of all, it’s not actually a subscription. As their about


Google Reader Alternatives: NewsBlur

A couple of weeks back I wrote a post about Google Reader being retired, and what the various options were for someone who was looking for something new. I mentioned at the time that I couldn’t write about NewsBlur because they were slammed so hard that the site was unusable. They’ve either beefed up their servers, or


Product Review: Café Escapes K-Cups

Disclaimer: I’m a member of BzzAgent, which is a community that sends you free stuff to sample and review. I was invited to join the Café Escapes campaign, and thought you all might be interested as I assume you’re all caffeine fiends like myself. I got the K-Cups for free, along with some two


And Back Again…

I was so happy when my husband decided he wanted a Galaxy SIII and I could take his Galaxy Nexus. I was able to overlook the bad battery life.  I picked up a MyCharge, threw it in my purse, and considered it done. I was able to overlook the fact that I’d


Product Review: Evoluent Mouse

Disclaimer: My husband bought me the Evoluent Mouse for Christmas and I decided I’d write about my experiences. They didn’t pay me to write this or provide free product. I’m that coworker whose computer you hate to use. I was diagnosed with a mild case of carpal tunnel last year, and have


5 on Friday: Five Reasons I’m Glad to be Back on Android (And Five Things I Miss About iPhone)

Santa came early this year and delivered my husbands Galaxy S3 on Christmas Eve, giving me the luxury of switching from my busted iPhone to his old Galaxy Nexus before the post-Christmas rush. I’ve only had it a few days, but here are my initial thoughts on why I’m glad to be
