Giving Thanks for the Year that was 2014

Hey there.  Can you believe that 2014 is nearly over?  Tomorrow is New Year's Eve.  2014 will soon be a memory and new experiences will be made in 2015.  2014 has been an eventful one, both personally and professionally.  Personally, new city, new home, new environment...  Professionally, new schedule, new contacts, new opportunities.  Personal items affect business items.  Moving into a new home really set me back a bit blog wise.  I'm sure you noticed that my posts have not been as routine as they used to be.  But those months spent settling into a new home is now over and a schedule has been set in place to assure posts are done on a more consistent manner.  But I digress...  This post is about giving thanks.  Thanks to those that have made 2014 a successful one for this website.  Also, I want to give a little insight on what is to come in 2015.  So let's get right to it.

Get Caught Cheating on Vodka with Veev

Veev Klout Perk
Cheat at your holiday party... cheat in a hotel... cheat with friends!
Veev may just be the mistress that'll get you to cheat on your vodka!
Hey there.  I'm fortunate enough that my Klout score is high enough to be able to score me some awesome perks.  ESPN stuffs, McDonald's stuffs, and discounts to various services.  But recently, I've been able to take part in a more mature perk.  A perk for those of us that enjoy a little vodka.  You see, vodka is my alcohol of choice.  When at a social gathering that is serving drinks, I tend to go for any drink involving Vodka.  Whether it be a screwdriver, vodka cranberry, or just vodka on the rocks... a vodka drink never seems to fail.  But the latest Klout Perk (free bottle of Veev) is asking me to cheat on vodka.  Wait... what?!  Cheat on a drink that has been there for me throughout the years?  I'm skeptical, but intrigued!  Veev is a perfectly balanced all natural spirit formulated with the perfect blend of acai berry and other natural ingredients.  Born in Brazil but handcrafted in America, Veev is a 70 proof premium spirit.  Essentially, it's the perfect mistress to be caught with when cheating on vodka!

RAVPower USB Charger
Hey there.  I have all kinds of tech gadgets at home.  Who doesn't like gadgets, right?  The best thing about those gadgets is that they can be charged up with a USB cable.  Music players, speakers, tablets, phones, keyboards, mice... if it can be charged up with a USB cable, I probably have some sort of variation or that gadget.  lol  But one thing that irks me about having to charge via USB cable is that I need a charger that will not only carry the correct charge, but be able to do it quickly.  Enter the RAVPower 24W Dual 2.4A USB Wall Charger with iSmart Technology.  Our good friends at RAVPower provided me with this great USB wall charger to try out and review!  I know what you guys are thinking, "A USB wall charger...  Really?"  Yeah, a USB wall charger!  These things are a MUST for the techie in your life and instead of getting a low powered one, you need to make sure that you get one that can handle the most demanding of gadgets!  So before I get into my experience with this wall charger, let's talk specs!

What I'm Playing... Castle Clash

Hey there.  I just haven't had the time recently to get my gaming on.  There are so many great games out there and I just haven't had the time to play them yet.  It's one of the main reasons why I find myself playing more and more mobile games.  I finally realized that playing on your smartphone is a quick fix to get a bit of gaming on.  At this moment, I'm playing Castle Clash.  It has everything that I look for in terms of quick fix gaming.  It has leveling up.  It has power ups.  It has heroes.  It has battles.  It has dungeons.  It has a timer.  The timer is the thing that makes this game work for me.  Unless you want to shell out money to get things done quickly, the timer forces you to put the game down and come back later once your troops or your buildings are done.  You see, every upgrade and troops are allotted a time.  That's how long it will take for it to ready.  A simple troop soldier may take only 20 seconds to be created while a level 9 gold vault could take up to a day.  Having only 2 builders makes your choices all the more critical.  In essence, it's one great time waster.  lol

Mpow Streambot Oval FM Transmitter Review

Hey there.  How many of you listen to music while driving your car?  I know I do.  So when I'm driving through an area where there is no radio signal, it irks me.  I don't like listening to static on the radio.  It reminds of Silent Hill and freaks me out. lol  You see, I drive through a mountain range when I travel to work and I don't get a radio signal.  What I used to do what have my phone on speaker and have music play from my phone.  The problem that I had with that was that I couldn't really hear since my phone's speaker does not compare to my car's speaker system.  If only there was was a way to connect my phone to the car's speakers.  Wait... there is!!!  The Mpow Streambot Oval FM Transmitter does just that!  Our good friends at Mpow provided me this FM transmitter to try out and review and it is simply one of the best FM transmitters that I have tried.  Before I get into my experience, let's talk specs.

The ShaveMOB Stocking Stuffer

Hey there.  You know, my wife always said that when I shave, I look a lot younger.  She's even said that I carry myself a little better.  That exude confidence.  It's exactly what I need at work.  It's important for me to be and look my best at the work place.  While the scruffy look works great in certain industries, I've come to learn that it simply does not in the finance world.  I've used many razors, trying to the find the one that works best for me.  And it seems like the universe is telling me that shaving needs to be a more integral part of my life.  How?  Well, my brother is pushing me to join a shaving club, my wife suggests I join a shaving club, TV is telling me that shaving clubs are awesome.  Hmmm...  sure does seem like I need to join a shaving club.  And just when I was about to start and check them out, the blogging gods intervened.  The good guys at ShaveMOB reached out to me and asked if I would like to check out their Mens Stocking Stuffer.  I jumped at the opportunity.  So before I get into my experience, here are the contents of the Mens Stocking Stuffer:
