My New Samsung Galaxy Note II

February 13, 2013 Leave a comment

Today, I received my Samsung galaxy Note II in the mail today! It felt like forever, but I only waited a few days for it. I wanted mine in white, but they only carried gray in store, so I had to get mine shipped in.

So far, I LOVE the phone, but I’ll let you all know what I think for sure after I’ve been using it for a while.

Busy Day Today

20130108_155933

Today I spent the whole day taking my 90-year old uncle and 85-year old grandma out to lunch and the drugstore for their odds and ends. Then I spent the rest of the afternoon taking down the Christmas tree, the christmas lights, and cleaning the living room of all the pine needles. Ahhhh… Boy, do I wish I could have just done what Sasha did all day. This. LOL

Promise Rings

December 9, 2012 Leave a comment

First off, let me say that I’ve always loved the idea of a promise ring. Basically, it’s “a ring worn to signify a commitment to a monogamous relationship” (Wikipedia’s formal definition). Your significant other promises him/herself to you, wanting to be with you, and shows it with a physical token of his/her love and affection. Now, I know some of you may be older, have gone through this already, or are married, but still. I felt I had to write about this since it’s something I’ve thought about since middle school.

A lot of girls LOVE to have tokens like these. Even though it’s useless. Even though it serves no purpose.

To them, it means so much more than having something useful, or something over the top, or something that will be used up eventually. Those types of things are all good to have too and any present from a significant other is always appreciated, but quite different than getting your loved one something like a promise ring.

For me, it’s not about the receiving of a piece of jewelry as it is:

  • The fact that he/she wanted to get this for you in the first place. Period. (They wanted to really solidify and seal their proof of commitment in every way including a tangible way)
  • They really wanted to show their committment in a beautifultangible item that can be shown off to other people. (They want everyone else to know that you are theirs and he/she is yours and that you both are very serious about each other)
  • They are proud to be with you. (They are PROUD to be with you. They are PROUD to be the boyfriend/girlfriend of [insert your name here])
  • They spent time really thinking this through. (It’s not easy taking on a task such as picking out something like this)
  • They spent time looking for the perfect ring. (They probably spent a lot of time figuring out their budget, finding funds, and looking for the perfect ring to suit you)

I actually have a really hard time trying to put into words the feeling and sentiment of something like a promise ring and the meaning it has to me, but this is the best I could come up with so far.

It’s funny because I started out looking at a good deal on a pendant–and ended up looking at promise rings for a few hours instead!

Here are some great finds for any budget that you might have. So for all you boyfriends or girlfriends looking for a beautiful promise ring (or I even noticed some of the more budget conscious people using some of these rings as engagement rings) for your significant other, here it is.

I narrowed my search on the Zales website to white gold, and the stone being diamonds. I also chose the rings with the best reviews, and ones with user-submitted pictures so I could actually SEE what they looked like in real-life. I found that reading the reviews and seeing the pictures REALLY helped me to see whether I did or did not like it.

I’ll start from the most affordable and go to the more expensive ones. These are the ones that I really liked that didn’t look tacky and that had an actual carat weight to them.

^This one is very affordable but still offers a very pretty setting and a single diamond, center placement. It looks very dainty on the finger too. You can check out the ring, user submitted pictures, and user reviews HERE. Item # 18669994

1

^ This one is cute and simple but still has eye-catching sparkle. You can check out the ring, user submitted pictures, and user reviews HERE. Item # 18165027

2

^ This one is one of the more typical styles that I’ve seen in terms of promise rings, and the three stone setting supposedly has a symbolic meaning as well (something about each diamond signifying something). It also looks very dainty on the finger as well. You can check out the ring, user submitted pictures, and user reviews HERE. Item # 18162057

Now, the next two are very similar, but you can decide for yourselves which one you like better. The user-submitted pictures make it a toss up between the two for me. Check them out before deciding!

4 5

^They both have a criss cross design, and they both look very beautiful on the finger. I think the difference is the left one has diamonds on one of the criss cross strands (hence the 1/4 CT TW) as well as a slight ring of gold around the center diamond, and the left one looks like diamonds, but it’s actually the gold that’s chipped in to (hence the 1/6 CT solitaire), so there’s only actually only one diamond on the ring. I feel like these ones aren’t so small that you can’t really see the diamonds, but also not so big that it looks ridiculous for a promise ring. For me, when I look at the user-submitted pics, I favor the left one… wait… no, maybe the right one. No, the left… I dunno. You decide. :p LOL

On the left is THIS RING (check out the reviews and user-submitted pics), item # 17700121 …… and on the right is THIS RING (check out the reviews and user-submitted pics), item # 18199760

^ This one, I didn’t think I really liked but it had such high reviews that I had to check it out. The pictures of it on the finger are actually really nice. This is for the sparkly at heart type of girl. It looks very dainty on the finger and sparkles a lot under the light! You can check out the ring, user submitted pictures, and user reviews HERE. Item # 18143636

^ Now, this ring, I thought was very pretty, and it was at the top of the price list in terms of promise rings (without getting into the engagement ring category). It has a nice single diamond, surrounded by baghuette diamonds. However, there are no reviews or user-submitted pics, so I can’t make too much of a suggestion for this one because I’d like to see it on someone’s finger first. But it looks like it’d be a gordeous ring! And if you want to spend or have a hight budget for your significant other, then this might just be the one for you! You can still check it out HERE. Item # 19192327

There are A LOT of promise rings listed on Zales, but as I mentioned before, these were the ones that had user reviews and pictures. They are also some of the more classy ones. There are a lot of other fun or cute rings on here too, as well as some other pricier rings (categorized under promise rings but listed as engagement rings). Take a look and you might find something you like HERE!

iPhone 4S In White

November 18, 2012 2 comments

Alright, so I’ve been wanting the iPhone 4S on Virgin Mobile since it first came out!!! But I didn’t want to shell out $650 for it!

I currently use the LG Optimus Slider to post my pics and stuff for you guys… which has a low quality camera and no flash. And it’s really slow. And has barely any memory for apps and storage for pics.

The price dropped to $550 at the Apple Store for an unlocked one after the newer iPhone 5 came out, but still, that was too high.

The price now is $450 for the Virgin Mobile one (which is locked to Virgin, but I’m sure I’ll be able to get it unlocked eventually)… so I bought one.

Mainly for the site, instagram, twitter, Facebook, etc… I want my pics and uploads to be in good quality and I wanted to have more memory!

So… now, things should be looking a lot clearer for you and should be a lot easier and faster for me! Yay! Win-win!

My New Tablet: Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 In WHITE!

August 29, 2012 Leave a comment

Today, my new tablet came in! I ordered the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 (this is a 7-inch tablet).

This is the “student edition” from Amazon (only the student edition comes in WHITE so far and it also came bundled with a keyboard dock AND a USB connector so you can connect your flash drive or anything else via USB port!).

You can find the student edition tablet here on Amazon: SAMSUNG GALAXY TAB 2 IN WHITE STUDENT EDITION

I bought it from here for $250 + free shipping! Good deal with the keyboard AND for it being white!

Some of the good specs:

  • It’s 7-inches
  • MicroSD Card slot
  • Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich
  • DUAL CAMERAS (one on the front. and one on the back-3MP)
  • TouchWiz
  • 0.76 lbs
  • 1024 x 600 screen resolution
  • wifi enabled

I’ll post a review on this later, but so far I REALLY like it. 7-inches seems to be a perfect size after handling a 10.1 inch tablet. I also love the fact that it’s white and that it matches all my other electronics. The tablet is android-based so it syncs up perfectly to everything on my phone. It fits in my hands comfortably and it’s not heavy. Check it out if you have the time!

THIS IS NOT THE OLDER LG MYTOUCH Q. Just had to get that off my chest. lol

I got the new MyTouch Q made by Huawei. In WHITE! 😀 It’s a slid-out QWERTY style phone. It’s pretty nice, mid-level smartphone.

I’ll do a review on it once I’ve had the chance to use it more. 🙂
