I now have a new Apple MacBook, Apple Watch, Apple AirPods, and Apple iPhone. Something I have been impressed with across the board, especially with my new MacBook and AirPods, is the quality of sound.

I had been looking for quality speakers for my house and hadn’t found anything that could compare to the sound experiencing I was getting with my Apple Products. The closest quality I could find was from Sonos. My sister and her Fiancรฉ have a couple Sonos speaker in their apartment and I love how those speakers operate in that space. I was about to buy a couple when I saw Apple was releasing theirย HomePod product.

Because I’m still a bit broke from Christmas and all of my car crap last year, I’m going to have to save a bit before I can get this, but I’m totally getting one as a Valentines present to myself. If you are looking for the perfect thing to get your Valentine, this would make a killer gift. Skip the shitty Pandora and heart shaped jewelry and get your special someone something they will really enjoy.



I hoaned in on one item to purchase during Amazon’s Prime Day this year.

I have a lot of friends who have Bose bluetooth speakers and the sound is fantastic. I have a set of speakers that I love, but they must be plugged into the wall and I have been looking to buy a nice portable speaker for some time now.


Originally $199.00, this speaker was reduced to $179.00 and then an additional $50.00 off for Amazon Prime Day. With tax and free shipping, I only paid $137.71. That’s a pretty good deal! I can’t wait to begin using it!
