SnapPower Guidelight {#Review} Making Bedtime For My Little One Easier! #GiftGuide2014

Pin It!
Do any of you have a child that is scared of the dark? I do. Lydia is 8 years old and she is scared of the dark. I am 25 years old and I am still scared of the dark on occasion. Recently I was introduced to a product that I am completely in love with! The SnapRays Guidelight is a plug-and-play replacement for the standard plug-in night lights and hardwired guide lights found on the market today; it installs within seconds and requires no wires or batteries. 
They are available in two different style and three different colors. I chose the Duplex style because that is what my plugs are at the moment. I also chose white  because it fits the place.
 Using the product is pretty simple. You need to turn off the power to the room you want to install these in FIRST. Remove the existing cover plate and snap on the SnapRays Guidelight.
The Guidelight has prongs on it that clip around the outlet screws. The prongs HAVE to touch these screws to work. Make sure that nothing is in the way.The screw terminals have to be exposed. If paint or tape is on the outlet, they won't work. FUN FACT: LEDs in the Guidelight will last for 25+ years before they begin to dim AND they only cost 10 cents a year to operate! WHAT?!
The SnapRays Guidelight is designed to be installed facing the same direction as the ground prongs on the outlet.  For example: If the ground prongs on the outlet are facing down, the Guidelight will need to be installed with the lights facing down. If the ground prongs are facing up, then the Guidelight will need to be installed with the lights facing up. They are not comparable with GFCI outlets. I honestly have to tell you, this is GENIUS. I love it! I would have never thought of such a thing before! They only emit 6 lux of light! It is the same as a standard nightlight! Please keep in mind these only light up at night. These would be great in hallways too!

I have two of these in Lydia's room and one in my kitchen and one behind my couch so that we can see out laptop cord when we get it at night. Currently you can only purchase these on their website! They are $15 a piece but you can buy them in 1, 3, 5, and 10 packs. Prices vary. Check out their website via the link in this post to learn more! A pack of these would make a great stocking stuffer or gift this Holiday Season! I recommend it for my gift guide this year!

Campus Book Rentals- An afforable way to get those college books!

Pin It!
If you are a college student, you know that books can get super expensive! I have the perfect solution for you. Have you heard of At Campus Book Rentals, you can get the following perks:
-Save 40-90% off of bookstore prices- That $200 book on Amazon will more than likely be cheaper here!
-Free shipping both ways- Who wants to pay out of the butt for shipping? Shipping takes a pretty penny out of your pocket and books are heavy. Can you imagine? Lifesaver much? I think so!
-Can highlight in the textbooks- How cool is this? You can highlight in your books. Instead of writing notes over and over again, you can have that information you need there in front of your face!
-Flexible renting periods- Need it for 1 semester? They have you covered. 
One thing I love about them is the new program the have! It is called Rent Back. RentBack is new initiative that allows students to rent the textbooks they own - to other students... which is awesome because it makes them 2-4x more money compared to what they'd make through buyback options! (selling their books back at the end of the semester) Check out how it works:
- Go to and find your books.
- Ship your books by printing the free shipping label
- They'll receive your books to make sure they are "rentable". 
- Students rent, you get paid- over and over again!
How simple is that? I think it is great! If you think that is great, you are going to love this. Campus Book Rentals donates to Operation Smile with each textbook rented. Operation Smile is an international children's medical charity that performs safe, effective cleft lip and cleft palate surgery, and delivers postoperative and ongoing medical therapies to children in low and middle income countries. Isn't that a beautiful cause? Check them out for yourself via the links in this post! You won't regret it! Thanks for reading!

#Nokia #Lumia Cortana- Your Personal Assistant; Windows Phone WOW

Pin It!
Did you know that all Windows phones now have Cortana? She is super cool and allows so many possibilities! Cortana's features include being able to set reminders and find places to eat. She can also set your alarm and do basic commands. All you have to do is push the app, click the microphone and ask away! She will answer! She also calls you by your name or nickname! You can personalize your interests and name when you set it up. It is quite simple! 
I love that you can set quite times, your favorite places and music search matches! You can do this by tapping the three white lines on the right of the phone when you have Cortana open. 
Most important of all, I love using Cortana because as a student/mom and blogger on the go she reminds me of stuff daily. I would lose my head if I didn't have this thing! Where has she been all my life?
Overall. I love Cortana because she knows YOU she learns your interests and recommends things to you! It is a really useful thing! If you don't have a Windows Phone (I recommend the Lumia 635), you are missing out! 

Now- A small update, I recently posted about my new Nokia Lumia 635, {see that post here} I wanted to share a few things with you- This phone is AWESOME!  I really didn't know how much you can personalize this phone until I played with it more and more. The live tiles allow you to see status updates, and tweets in real time. You can also  pin apps, websites, music albums and pretty much everything to the main screen so that it is all there. You can also personalize the colors daily. It is like having a new phone everyday. You never get bored with it! SEE?

Lydia likes to take my phone and take pictures. It doesn't have a front facing camera so it is nice to have her snap one for me! Check it out! No editing other than my watermark has been added.
