Pelican Vault 2

Every year, I invest in one big (to me) purchase for my business. This year, it was an iPad Air. I went with last year’s model because it was like $150 cheaper and still did everything I needed to do. Still, at over $300, I found myself carrying it around as if it was a newborn preemie.

While the iPad is mostly for business purposes, I do have some […] Read more »

Madame Irma Watches Teaches Kids to Tell Time in Style


We received a complimentary Madame Irma watch in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own. Until they’ve mastered numbers, understanding time is a really hard concept for kids to grasp. They have no idea how long an hour or even twenty minutes is, and so they ask again, and again, and again. The co-founder of Madame Irma watches found that his children and many of his friend’s children also found it difficult relating things to time. To fix this problem, he decided to create a new child-friendly way to understand time even if they haven’t mastered numbers […] Read more »
