My New Favorite Gadget!

AnyMote Home – Smart Universal Remote Control for iPhone, iPad and Android

Hey, y’all! I haven’t blogged a bit since I started my new job almost three months ago, but to find a balance between work, family, and the things I love, I’m going to make an effort to connect with you MORE! So…today I have to tell you about a product that has pretty much removed standard remote controls from my life. This is HUGE!

I’ve had the Anymote for a few weeks now, and I’m absolutely in love with it! We have four kids and two adults in our house, so remote controls are the one thing we always seem to be searching for. The worst for me is searching for remotes in the bedroom. I can turn the TV on and off with the controls on the TV, but the Blu-Ray player has to have a remote for me to be able to get past the menu. That remote is never easy to find, partly because we don’t use it very often, and partly because things that go on my sweetheart’s nightstand have a tendency to get…lost.

Fast forward to about a week ago. My boyfriend’s son woke up at 5:30 am one beautiful Sunday morning…and neither of us was ready to get up yet. He was playing in his room like such a good boy, though. Not throwing a fit about being alone and not getting into stuff he shouldn’t be, either. So I brought him into the bedroom so he could sit in between us and watch some morning cartoons. Then I realized I didn’t know where the stupid Blu-Ray remote was. Normally, I would have two choices: wake my boyfriend up looking for remote, or find something else to do. But I was already laying in bed, and really didn’t want to get back up yet. Then I remembered the AnyMote! I grabbed my phone (which is always nearby, unlike the remote), opened the Anymote app, and was able to turn the TV on, then switch right over to the Blu-Ray player and turn on cartoons! I felt like the smartest mom in the entire universe!anymote_003

Sure, the Anymote took a bit of work to setup. I’m pretty good with technical stuff, so it was pretty easy for me, but it was also really intuitive, and the app helped me along the way. My boyfriend made fun of me at first because my phone already has a remote sensor..but what it doesn’t have it thousands of pre-built remotes to match a ton of devices. If I run into something that there isn’t a pre-made remote for, I can even create my own…but that takes a little bit more time and patience. I love that the app developers are always adding new devices so that my AnyMote can grow with my home’s technology, too!anymote_001

I thought that the app was.. ugly at first, but then I found skins for the remotes, so I can change the color scheme at will. There are so many features that I haven’t even taken the time to try out yet, but my favorite thing about my AnyMote is that I don’t have to spend time searching for the remote that came with the TV anymore. I’ve saved so much time by using my cell phone, instead, which is pretty much always with me! You can check it out here: AnyMote Home – Smart Universal Remote Control for iPhone, iPad and Android

As Always, Stay Beautiful & Think Divergently!

I absolutely LOVE Dot&Dot products. Every single thing that I have received has exceeded my expectations. Not only can you get free 2-day shipping with Amazon Prime, but they come in these awesome PVC bags with a plastic slide ‘zipper thingy’ that have come in handy for a ton of other things around the house! I gave them to the kids to help organize their belongings, like school papers, and kept the packing cubes for myself!

Small Travel Organizer—Dot&Dot

Someone get me outta here! I’m still stuck on organization…and surprisingly…still working in the bathroom this week! We’ve eliminated odors, and stopped my nail polish from spilling all over the shelf…Today we’re tackling my ‘medicine cabinet’! I have soooo much stuff! The plan was to go through everything, throw out anything that’s expired or that we haven’t used in over a year, and organize it so that it’s not in 5 different random boxes! I got out my newest Dot&Dot Packing Cube, because I know it’s so well-made, I know it will hold up to constant abuse from my family!

Display Sheet Makeup Bag—Product Review!

Okay friends…now that we have spent the week cleaning up the bathroom and making things smell a bit better in the house…it’s time to GET ORGANIZED! Organization is something I have a DRASTIC need for, as I’m not very good at finding a ‘place’ for everything, so it…sort of tends to stay in boxes. Lots of RANDOM boxes, all over my stupid house. Time to get to work!
