HopeLine Accessories Benefit Domestic Violence Prevention #VZWBuzz #VoicesHavePower


As a member of the #VzwBuzz influencer team, I received the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and Note 10.1 tablet with line of service from Verizon. No additional compensation was provided nor did I promise positive feedback. All opinions are my own. I am one of those techies that refuses to use her new device until it's protected.

Inspire Future Engineers with GoldieBlox | #GIVEAWAY | ends 10/3 | #LookatGoldie


The first time I heard about GoldieBlox was during the Super Bowl in 2014. If you haven't seen the commercial, please take a second to watch it. It's worth it.
