Capture The Moment Now! @AdobeElements @BestBuy #BestLifeEver #PSE #Ad

    Years ago, I fell in love with photography and being able to capture precious moments to look back upon for years to come.  Unfortunately, my interest in taking pictures hasn't always met my skill level when it comes to having just the right lighting and making sure that all my images were crisp and clear.  As a result, I have dabbled in using quite a few photo editing apps and programs to enhance my photos and make them more appealing.     I've always wanted an easy and user-friendly way to organize, edit and share all of my photos but some of the programs that I have looked into were either too complicated for me or too expensive.  When I found out about Adobe Photoshop Elements, I knew I had found exactly what I was looking for because it is all about simplicity and sharing with your photos.  For a photography amateur like me, being able to improve upon my photos without a lot of hassle is music to my ears!     Adobe … [Read more...]

Make Halloween More Spooky And Fun! #BestBuyHalloween @BestBuy #Ad

    Halloween has always been such a fun holiday for us.  Ever since we bought our home in 2004, we have really enjoyed planning for all of the Trick or Treaters that come knock on our door that evening.  I have been known to go a little overboard buying candy to give out and we enjoy hanging skeletons in the front yard to add to the spooky vibe.     My husband and I enjoy a good prank and Halloween is also a great time to play tricks on unsuspecting people and scare the wits out of them.  Most families who love this time of the year as much as we do look forward to decorating and setting up Halloween pranks and haunted houses.  A friend of ours actually spends the whole season visiting haunted attractions around our state.     In recent years, Halloween pranks have gotten more elaborate and even spookier than ever thanks to all of the technology that we have at our disposal.  Best Buy has all of the spooky and fun products that … [Read more...]

Keep Your Family And Your Home Safe @BestBuy @ArloSmartHome #BBYConnectedHome #Ad

    This past year, there were two separate incidents where I walked outside and noticed that someone had thrown eggs at my car.  To this day, we don't know who did it but we do know that many cars in our neighborhood seemed to be targeted and many suspect it was teenagers up to no good.  You might think this was just a harmless prank but egg yolk can erode car paint and we had to spend money to have my car simonized to remove the streaks left behind.       This experience made us think hard about possibly installing security cameras around the perimeter of our home.  Cost was definitely a factor because we knew that these systems can be very expensive and we just didn't have the means to invest in such a costly security camera.       Fortunately, Best Buy offers a great deal on the Arlo Smart Home Security Camera System.  Although you can purchase Arlo cameras at other retailers, their four camera set for $499.99 is … [Read more...]
