When I have free time I enjoy listening to music or an audio book with my headphones. I have Bose wireless headphones that I fall asleep while listening to music or spoken word because they are so comfortable. However, I recently had the opportunity to try the Beats Solo3 Wireless On-Ear Headphones, courtesy of Verizon Wireless.
Features (Verizon website)
Connect via Class 1 Bluetooth with your device for wireless listening
The sounds is clear and good quality. Enjoying music will be a pleasure with the Beats and it offers good bass.
Up to 40 hours of battery life for multi-day use. It’s such a comfort to know that I didn’t have to constantly charge the headphones if I had them on for a long time.
With Fast Fuel, 5 minutes of charging gives you 3 hours of playback when battery is low
Adjustable fit with comfort-cushioned ear cups made for everyday use
Beats Solo3 Wireless stays true to its predecessor with bold styling and a streamlined design. The on-ear, cushioned ear cups are adjustable so you can customize your fit for all-day listening comfort. The headphone’s fast-flowing curves and pivoting ear cups complete this natural fit, designed for optimal comfort and sound delivery. My ears felt a little snug when I listened for a long time, but maybe after extended use it will become more flexible.
Sleek, streamlined design that’s durable and foldable to go everywhere you do
Take calls, control your music and activate Siri with the multifunction on-ear controls
Easy Connectivity All I had to do was push in the on button under one of the ear cushions and held it for a couple of seconds and the headphones popped up on my phone or iPad and it would connect and I would click done and I was all set for listening to my favorite tunes.
*Battery power consumption depends on factors such as network configuration, carrier network and, signal strength.Wireless performance may be affected by nearby objects including walls, metal items, and other wireless devices. I would walk down the hall at work to see how for the wifi would go and it would disconnect but the reach was not suppose to be that long so that’s expected. When I was in my office it was hand free and I could go from my office to another office and it flowed with know interference.
Running with Beats
I run using the Spotify app music playing on my iPhone. The Beats Solo3 Wireless On-Ear Headphones are lightweight and do not feel like they weigh me done while I am exercising. I workout hard so listening to music that has clear sound is awesome.
Overall the Beats Solo3 Wireless On-Ear Headphones from Verizon would make a great gift to you, or from you for someone special. The Beats headphones retail for $299.99 with free shipping on VerizonWireless.com.

I am really focusing on finding quality beauty products for a good value, sometimes it can be hard to find when you don’t know where to look.
Have you ever noticed that in the world of beauty, new products are hitting the market all the time. Whether it is in the drug stores, on the infomercials, or in the department stores; there is always the newest or greatest product that you have to try. From moisturizers to masks to cleansers, it can be hard to keep up with them all.
Picking the right eye cream
How do you know which product is the right one for you? How do you know if it is better to spend?
Reviews.com is a great resource to see what eye cream is out there and how they all measure up. Going through the various different eye creams to find out what works can be overwhelming; so it is great to have a resource to have for more detailed information.
Reviews.com measures the products by not only testing the products on the skin; but also cutting products that contain, parabens, fragrance, and mineral oils that can clog the pores. The team members also talk with dermatologist and research what ingredients are effective and beneficial for the skin.
Just because an eye cream is recommended for wrinkles, dark circles or puffy eyes and is the hot new item, doesn’t mean that it is good for you.
Just because the products cost over a hundred dollars, does not mean that it filled with effective ingredients.
Just because the products is endorsed or created by a celebrity, does not mean that it is better than other brands.
Have you looked at the list of ingredients on the box?
I use to think this eye cream that I had been using was working for me. I then looked at the list of ingredients and saw that it contained propylene glycol which can be an irritant to the skin. I stopped using it and really starting taking action on what ingredients are going on my skin.
Reviews.com is the place to get in-depth information on all sorts of beauty names and why they did and didn’t make the cut. The area Around the eye is the most delicate skin on your body; so you want to know which products work best.
I didn’t see the 100 Percent Pure Coffee Bean Caffeine Eye Cream (my current choice) on their list. I would like for the team members to test this product and see what they thought about it.
I pray that your week has been filled with many wonderful blessings.
Do you find yourself looking for that one camera that you can use for all of your photographic needs?
Are you frustrated your smart phone camera cannot get the quality photos you need?
Do you need a high-quality video recorder; but you don’t want to carry a bulky device?
Are you looking for a camera to capture those moments when holding a device is not an option?
Bubbling With Elegance And Grace recently had an opportunity to try the GoPro Hero 5, courtesy of Verizon Wireless. After trying this tiny, but mighty multi-purpose camera; I would recommend if you answered yes to any of the questions above.
The GoPro Hero 5 is the latest GoPro to hit the market and it is by far the best one.
The GoPro Hero 5 measures only 1.26inches x 2.44inches x 1.75 inches; and weighs only 4.13 ounces. It is small enough to fit into your pocket or in your handbag and can easily be taken on the go with you. With limited buttons on the camera itself, it offers touch screen and voice commands to easily change the settings. Video options include changing the frame per second and resolution, with an option for 4K. The camera features time-lapse photography and micro-burst photo shoot with 30 images per second — all at 12MP. Additional accessories can be purchased that allows you to attach the camera to helmet, a bicycle or your dashboard; if you want to capture those action moments of your life. It is waterproof down to 33 feet of water if that action means going under water.
The camera retails for $399.99 on the Verizon website.
While that price may be higher than what you are typically would spend for a camera, think about what you are getting for that price. You are getting a fully-functioning camera that can capture your memories in high-resolution. You can spend twice as much for a camera on your smart phone; but the quality will only be half as good.
You are getting a video recorder that can be used to capture the hummingbirds in your backyard; or to record your next YouTube video. With resolution capacity at 4K, the GoPro Hero 5 keeps up with the current standards for video recording devices.
My latest YouTube video recorded with the GoPro Hero 5.
I recommend the GoPro Hero 5 to anyone who desires to have quality photographs and videos. This device fits into all facets of your life with its many options and features. I suggest you spend time to learn what those features are and how to incorporate them into your photographic needs. The more you know about what is packed into this tiny device and what it is capable of doing, you will not be disappointed with the GoPro Hero 5.
Verizon Wireless provided Bubbling With Elegance And Grace with the GoPro Hero 5 for thirty days to write this honest opinion. At the end of the thirty days, we returned the camera back to Verizon Wireless. We did not receive any monetary compensation for this review. All opinions are express in the review are own.
Just when I was looking for a good movie to watch, Bubbling With Elegance and Grace gets the opportunity to review the movie Altar Egos.
The movie will be released on DVD on Tuesday, September 5th; but had a chance to view the film before its release.
Desperate to see their church grow, Pastor John (Robert Amaya, MOM’S NIGHT OUT, COURAGEOUS) and wife Betsy (Erin Bethea, FIREPROOF) do the unthinkable and change their church Christmas pageant. The idea causes a great discontent in the church members, leading the pastor to take desperate measures to win back the people. The movie also stars Victoria Jackson (SNL) and Sallie Watchisn.

Pastor John inherited the church after his father who had been the pastor passed away. The congregation watches his every move and constantly compares him to his father. They are resistant to change and anything that Pastor John wants to do. They want to keep the heritage and tradition; but Pastor John wants to take the church in a new direction.
Here’s the movie trailer below:
Sharing some teaser photos of some memorable moments.

Definitely not giving away these scenes because they are too special.

ALTAR EGOS is wonderful movie that the entire family will enjoy. The movie touches on the power of forgiveness and how love can prevail even when it doesn’t seem possible. It truly shows the heart of Jesus when you can love the unlovable and reconcile with those who have hurt you.
Scripture references “Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you” (Ephesians 4:32 NIV). “Make allowance for each other’s faults, and forgive anyone who offends you. Remember, the Lord forgave you, so you must forgive others” (Colossians 3:13 NLT).
I don’t want to give away too much of the storyline because my hubby and I want you to see this movie for yourself. In partnership with LEV3L Digital, you have a chance to win your own copy of the movie on DVD.
Giveaway: (1) Winner will receive 1 physical DVD of the movie Altar Egos

Today was the cool day of the week on the weather report. But with the temperature topping out at 90 degrees and a heat index of 97, still still hot! But I am not complaining.
I have been looking for a hair removal device for my underarms. As soon as I shave under my arms, the hair comes right back in only two to three days.
I did not want to try waxing (OUCH!) and the epilator that I had tried before was not that great of quality (DOUBLE OUCH!!). I had seen other devices on the market, but they were not for people with darker skin tones; which I never quite understood completely. And in addition, some of these devices cost up to three hundred dollars or more. I saw a demonstration for the ME Chic. I considered this device as a great one to try because it works on all skin tones and hair colors; is FDA approved, it cost under two hundred dollars and came with an unconditional 90 day return policy to see if you like it.
ME Chic Permanent Hair Reduction device
Not much hair grows on my legs or on my arms; so the main area that I wanted to test was under the arms.
Below is a video on how to use it. It seems pretty simple. Just turn it on and every time the light blinks; I move to a different location. The company claims that it will take about seven weeks to see a noticeable difference, thus the reason for the 90 day trial.
After ninety days, I will be back with a full review.
