Getting It Straight For Back To School

It is back to school time and I have good news! I am now a Straight Talk Tester! What does that mean? It means I have me a great phone whose phone plan costs less than other plans, that’s what. Which translates to me saving my dollars for important things like dance lessons, gym shorts and fudge brownies. I get to not only test the network, but it comes in the form of an iPhone 6. Who said you can’t have nice things at a low price? Certainly not Straight Talk! One......

Imagine…This!

Disclosure: I am a Microsoft Office ambassador. I was provided transportation and lodging in order to cover this event. All thoughts, opinion and massive amounts of jet lag were purely my own. I recently had the great pleasure of attending the Microsoft Imagine Cup finals in Redmond. I was more than blown away by all of the participants and their technological creativity. Here’s a little of what I learned. What is The Imagine Cup? It is the world’s premier student technology competition. Microsoft invites all eligible students to use their imagination and passion......

Microsoft Surface Pro 3

Disclosure: I am a Microsoft Office 365 ambassador. I was provided with a Surface 3 Pro. I’m writing about it because I think you need to know about this awesome. All opinions are purely my own. I’ve told you before about how much I love my Surface. But now, I need to talk to you specifically about the Surface 3. Why, you ask? Because it’s beautiful. Seriously, I considered tagging this post under fashion and beauty. The difference in thickness is visible. It’s also lighter (only 1.7 pounds). I think the combination......

Showing Off Graduation Moments With Sway

Disclosure: I am an Office ambassador. All thoughts, awesomeness and opinions are purely my own. I am about to make your summer! No, seriously! If you have had a graduation recently, you will totally thank me for this. Better yet, if it’s not your kid’s graduation, you can totally put this together for a family member or friend. Because…amazing! What is Sway? Your lifesaver. The thing that I am currently in love with. The new situation that I will talk your ear off about. All these things define Sway. Also? Sway is an......

Creating a Media Kit With Microsoft Publisher

Disclosure: I am an Office Champion, an ambassador for Microsoft. All thoughts and opinions are my own. I’ve often struggled with putting together my media kit. As bloggers know, a media kit is a collection of blood, sweat and tears that never quite tells it all. Amirite?  For me, the last few months have brought with them web host shenanigans of gigantic proportions which made me feel like only my Mami in heaven was reading my blog. But, I digress. We are talking media kits! I’m a wiz with resumes and I......

Techy Tuesday: The Summit In Seattle

Disclosure: I am a Microsoft Office Ambassador (aka Champion). I was on this trip in order to get lots of information on products & services and in order to hug my friends. All opinions are my own. Last week I spent a little time in Seattle. For the record, let me just say that every time I go there, I think to myself “I could live here”. Seattle is beautiful and it didn’t help that we were at The Edgewater Hotel. I loved everything about the place. Yes, there was a fireplace......

OneNote Must Know

Disclosure: I am a Microsoft Office Ambassador. All thoughts, excitement and faded receipts are purely my own. A lot of my posts come about because I am simply too busy to want to repeat myself. If I’m honest, it’s the reason I created the blog. Because I got tired of telling the story over and over again. And so, here I am, talking about OneNote. I’ve said these things no less than a half a dozen times in the past week and so, I knew it was time to let you all......

This Ain't Yo Mama's Microsoft

Disclosure: I am a Microsoft Office Champion. These are my stories. I was having a convo a few weeks back and it occurred to me that I needed to do a “back to basics” post. Just because I wrote about something before doesn’t mean you read it (and don’t think I’m not holding you accountable for that). I get asked about what tools I use regularly. And when I say Office, sometimes folks look at me funny. And so, I have basically taken to saying “This Ain’t Yo Mama’s Microsoft”. I might trademark......

19 Free Valentine's Day Fonts

It never fails! I am always running around at the last minute making Valentine’s Day cards. For my friends, you ask? No. For the Frog Princess and her class. Because nothing says I love you like frantic searches for heart shaped things that aren’t candy or cookies the night before you’re supposed to deliver them. And because I’m all type A, I always want beautiful swirly heart-shaped fonts. I’m a step ahead this year and I’m helping y’all out. And…this is a poem I wrote EONS ago. I thought I’d share some......

14 Free Christmas Fonts

I told you guys a little about Sway. Let’s just say I can’t stop creating in this cool new tool by Microsoft. So I thought I’d start a new Sway with some uber cool fonts. Why you ask? Because it’s the holidays and I love creating little signs around the house and notes with festive fonts. I’ll be adding to my Sway as the seasons change but here is my list of Christmas fonts and where you can get them for free!   Candy Cane Christmas Faux Snow Flakes Fontleroy Brown It’s......
