Go ahead, use the Nokia Lumia 2520 outside. Sunlight won’t stop you from seeing the screen!

Nokia-2520-screen

I spend a lot of time outdoors, especially in the summer. My kids love to play in the yard and at the park, and my youngest ones still need constant supervision.  It's all good until I need to get my online work done. I don't know if you have ever tried to see your computer screen while the sun shines on it, but it used to be impossible for me. The colors fade out and the screen is totally unreadable from any angle. Then I got the Nokia Lumia … [Read more...]

A Happy Good Morning with Silk Almond Coconut Blend + Coupon #SilkAlmondBlends

Silk-Blends

All of my kids are on summer vacation from school, so I like to give myself a vacation from cooking breakfast most mornings.

Just ask them: I recently switched our usual cereal milk to the new Silk Almond Coconut Blend (Original). My family loves Silk soy milk and almond milk, but this is our first time EVER … [Read more...]
