Tech Review: The Friendly Swede Bundle of 2 Extra Long 6.5 Feet 8-Pin Lightning USB Charger Cables

Anyone who knows me, knows how much I love my tech. So when I was looking for extra lightening cords for my Apple products, I went online to Amazon. Screen Shot 2014-02-05 at 12.22.53 PMI found this pack of two cords and decided to get them. I was really happy with them and the customer service is amazing. I was emailed more than once about how I was enjoying the cords and how to keep in touch in case something went wrong. The cords are nice and long and just work with  iOS 7. So there are no error messages to worry about, they are literally plug and play. For the price of buying one cord, I bought two and now I have a backup in case I need one!

Last Day to Give! Help those in need!

It’s that time of year we were start anew. Let’s start the year right by giving to others who may need it. This year I have donated my time to causes and continue to help those who need it.

Each of these places helps someone do something such as PBS, who educates adults and children alike in many things such as the arts. Sandy Hook Promise is to help  end gun violence in schools. Children should be safe at school. Donors Choose helps us help those who need supplies for school and help children from around the country each their educational goals. St. Jude helps families and children alike to fight cancer and never have to pay a bill.
