What a treat it was to attend the Consumer Technology Association Travel Lunch & Learn event! Not only did I learn ways to bring the comfort of home with me on travel but as a Mom, I need all the tips on how to keep my kids safe behind the wheel. From gadgets to keep their phone fully powered (one of my many fears when they travel!) to staying in my zone with the right earphones to shut everything out!
So what did the CTA Travel Lunch & Learn teach me? Let’s start with statistics. Did you know that the 100 deadliest days for teen drivers are between May and August? How terrifying!!! but it doesn’t end there! 49% of adult drivers don’t even have roadside assistance! I don’t know which is worst!
I learned about Hum by Verizon, a connected car technology, and a smart driving app that puts roadside assistance and more at your fingertips. As a Mom of 3, I NEED to stay up to date with Technology …
If you follow me on Twitter you know that I’m ALWAYS on my headphones and sneaking in my shows on my ROKU as the kids are asleep. It never dawned on me to take it on vacation with me!!! Mom brain much? The Roku Streaming Stick can connect to a hotels wireless and comes with a voice remote with TV power and volume buttons.
The Ashley Chloe Helix Cuff is the worlds first wearable wireless Bluetooth headphones! So say goodbye to digging into your diaper bag or purse to fetch your headphones. The Helix Cuff’s wearable band allows easy accessibility to your high-quality headphones while looking stylish too! Get it girl!
The myCharge Pride Limited Edition is a rechargeable external battery pack that is a great travel companion! it easily stores and conveniently charges via a wall outlet and connects to devices simultaneously. I especially loved learning that 5% of sales go The Trevor Project, a crisis intervention & suicide prevention services provider. ❤ ❤ ❤
My girls are iPhone users and they are always dropping their phones! good grief! The Speck Presidio Clear for iPhone X features: Fade-resistant, realistic prints with ultra-rich colors, 10-Foot Drop Tested, IMPACTIUM™ Shock Barrier, Scratch-resistant glossy finish, Independently lab tested and comes with Lifetime limited warranty.

The myCharge myFlipShade is actually a cute and trendy pop up shade to block sunlight, rain, and snow from your device and can be used to block nosey eyes from watching your device.
