These are the cutest and most adorable winter toddler boots!

25 Nov

We went shopping before the Thanksgiving holiday and enjoyed family time with our niece. We had so much fun shopping in the city for clothes, shoes and toys. Everywhere we went, people were telling us how cute and adorable our precious little niece looked in her boots, and asked who designed them!

They are Michael Kors Toddler Girls Yara Boots, made of faux fur. The lovely faux fur boots feel so soft, and look chic and trendy, with bucked straps around the calf. She looks adorable in them with tights, jeans, dress, skirt, and practically anything goes!

I know Michael Kors is a world famous fashion designer, but I’m pleasantly surprised by his creative good taste for children’s fashion as well. We love these boots and can’t wait to check out what other Michael Kors shoes are still available for Christmas, because that’s one of the many presents Santa will be bringing to our precious pretty niece this holiday and many more holidays to come!

Lumia 900 is Nokia’s best phone to date!

13 Nov

ImageImageNokia’s Lumia 900 so far, is its best smartphone with the looks, the speeds, the specs, and a price that will satisfy Windows phone users! The Lumia 900 is the best Windows phone thus far (the Lumia 920 will be out soon, just in time for the holidays), and it’s perfect for the mainstream market. This is an awesome device for anyone who wants to own a Windows Phone, because it has a very clear talk signal, gets on line very quickly andsmoothly, has great camera quality, fast processor, sturdy construction, gorilla glass, and it fits very well in the palm of my hands! Its lightly sculpted unibody chassis and vibrant colors make me feel energized and proud to own this Windows Phone. It’s approximately 5″ x approximately 3″ x approximately .5″ so it’s a good size for videos and surfing the web. The smooth, matte finish allows it to slide easily into pockets and purses, and the 5.6 ounces device feels very solid. The gorgeous 4.3″ AMOLED screen features ClearBlack display technology and Gorilla Glass, while the colors look rich, bright, and sharp. There is, an eight megapixel camera lens and a dual-LED flash. Also thanks to a close partnership between Nokia and Microsoft, the Lumia 900 runs the most recent iteration of Windows Phone OS, version 7.5 Mango. As a result, the Lumia 900 can perform every software task that other Windows Phones do, too!

Windows Phone OS provides e-mail and social networking integration through account log-ins in the settings, an option for linking inboxes together, and support for group messaging. There’s task-switching, voice search, and scan searches with Bing, and it has conference calling and voice dialing. Also, Xbox Live games look great on the Lumia 900’s ultrabright screen. On the apps side, you’ll find basics like the clock, a calendar, a calculator, Internet Explorer 9, and podcast subscriptions in the Music + Video hub. There’s also a Maps app, with turn-by-turn directions for walking and driving, Microsoft offers Xbox Live integration through the Games hub, an FM radio, and the SmartDJ feature that creates mixes from your collection.  When it’s time to get to work, you can create and view Microsoft Office apps from a variety of sources.

Overall, if you’re looking for a smartphone with outstanding talk time, clarity (a phone that’s clear and allows you to talk without dropping calls), fast data connection (a phone that gets online fast, without closing you out of a website while you’re surfing vital information), and a phone with great maps, such as Nokia Maps (this is incredible, and is the best maps out there in the market today because it gives you directions fast and very accurate, so there’s no excuse to be late or gest lost), then this Windows phone is your answer!
