MotoX and UE Boom Speaker REVIEW #VZWBUZZ


Hey guys! I have some gadgets for you that I think you’ll LOVE. 
 The first is called the “UE BOOM” from Ultimate Ears and it’s a wireless speaker! 
This was my first experience with a wireless speaker, and omg it’s AMAZING. Basically, it can connect up to 8 devices through bluetooth. That means your iPad, iPhone, computer, etc. 

I use it EVERYWHERE! I used it to listen to Christmas music while I set up the Christmas tree, while I clean, dance parties by myself or with my puppies, and at family functions. It retails for $199.99, and it’s totally worth it. 
It has a 15 hour battery, water proof skin, and can totes fit in your purse. lololol 
It even has it’s own app!!
Me with the UE Boom….LOL
The next gadget I have for you guys is that MotoX (2 Gen). 
The battery life is awesome on this phone. I recently brought the Moto X on my NYC trip and it was so handy! I watched movies, and listened to music on the plane-without it dying! 
(4 hour plane ride, btw!) 
Compared to my iPhone, that’s pretty good. *I cringed while typing that, btw*
Took this photo with the MotoX!
For a more in depth review on the Moto X, check out my brother’s experience on my mom’s blog!
Hope you guys enjoyed my review!

 As you know I’ve been traveling quite a bit in these past few months. 

This summer I traveled all around Kansas with @xoxoLizza for Ford and Best Western, went to LA for MTV’s Video Music Awards, drove around California, THEN Texas. 
One would assume I’ve acquired at least SOME travel tips, right!?

Here are my top 5 travel tips while still looking supah fly and keeping your cool.
*DISCLAIMER- looking like Heidi not guaranteed* 

1.  Store Jewelry In a Pill Container!

   I ALWAYS lose my jewelry on trips cause I think it’s save to store them in sandwich bags, but then I find them scattered because the bag wasn’t closed up all the way! (Possibly my fault, LOL) OR tangled. (UGH!) At least this way you know that it’s safe!


If there’s anything I swear by, its bringing an external charger with you EVERYWHERE! 
Especially when you travel. Jockery is an excellent external charger brand, and you can get them cheap on Amazon!

3. So Fresh and So Clean, Clean.

Hand wipes and anitary bathroom wipes Repeat after me, hand wipes and sanitary bathroom wipes. Airports are FULL of germs and careless people. One way to avoid getting sick is by using what? Hand wipes and sanitary bathroom wipes. Class dismissed. 

4. Travel Playlist!

 Music is everything when you’re traveling. Make sure to make at least two different kinds of playlists. One for a mellow mood, and one for a booty shakin’-having a good time-omg I’m so excited for this trip mood. Speaking of booty shakin’ music, click HERE for some suggestions!


When @xoxolizza and I went on our Ford #UnMiniVan trip, we encountered SO many interesting people and situations. Some were…not so nice. But we always made it a point not let anything get in our way. We took EVERYTHING as an adventure even though it was unexpected. 
But those are the best, right?! It’s totally okay if things don’t go as planned. 
It’s such a waste to be mad about something you can’t control!

I hope these help you! Don’t forget 9pm EST/6pm PST!

What’s Been Happening on Vine Lately…

First off, I just hit 80,000!! AHHH
*happy dance*

 I know some of you don’t have Vine, so here’s a little recap of what I’ve been up to!
(Upper left corner to turn on sound) #WhatDoWeWantChant was a tag started by @Woodsie, which involved different scenarios of the “What do we want” chant. It was trending throughout the night, so I thought I’d jump in!
I’m thinking of making Martha a character…LOL what do you think?!? Relatable, amirite?!

 You guys KNOW I love me some Disney…especially Ariel.
Therefore, Chola Ariel! lol
Do I really need to say anything else?!

Lastly, check out what one of my awesome followers made me!!
SO cool!
Give him a follow!!

Anyway, Hope you enjoyed this recap! 

Follow me!

 A week ago I was so happy to read Alexander and the Terrible,Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day
to a 1st grade class at Herrera Elementary School because I read when I was a kid! 
The Story:
“Disney’s ‘Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day’ follows the exploits of 11-year-old Alexander () as he experiences the most terrible and horrible day of his young life – a day that begins with gum stuck in his hair, followed by one calamity after another. But when Alexander tells his upbeat family about the misadventures of his disastrous day, he finds little sympathy and begins to wonder if bad things only happen to him. He soon learns he is not alone when his mom (), dad (), brother (), and sister () all find themselves living through their own terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day. Anyone who says there is no such thing as a bad day just hasn’t had one.”

 It was wonderful! 
They were the most polite, and respectful group of kids I’ve ever met!
 ANDDDDD the MOVIE is coming out this Friday! (Say Whaaaa?)

With that, I’m going to give you some advice on handling a bad day like Alexander’s.
 Here’s something I learned that’ll blow your mind next time you have one.
You can’t control the events that happen, but you can control how you REACT to it. 

You can change your attitude?! WHAT!?!
  1. MUSIC! Listen to music that always makes you happy and DANCE! Shake it off! (ugh not u taylor swift….jkjkjk lololol)
  2. Do something good for someone to balance out the bad events that have happened. 
  3. If one bad thing happens after another, change your attitude. Complaining won’t do ANYTHING. Sulking won’t do ANYTHING. Being negative won’t do ANYTHING. 
  4. Remember, it’s just a day. Once it’s over you’ll have something to laugh about later!
  5. Lastly, count your blessings. I understand if you can’t “help” it, I mean, we’re all human, but have a cry session, then get on with your day. Because chances are there’s always someone out there who has it worse than you. Think of all the positive people and things you have in your life currently.  

You have the power to turn your day around.
So, the next time you’re feeling like Alexander, just try these steps!
Don’t forget! The movie comes out THIS FRIDAY!

Love, Maya
