Last Minute Holiday Shopping Lifesaver


Are you the kind of person who has all her holiday shopping done before December even hits, or are you the kind of person who finds herself frantically crossing things off her holiday shopping to-do list each and every Christmas Eve? Guess which camp I fall into? Hi, my name is Kristin, and I’m a holiday shopping procrastinator. It’s not that I don’t love the whole holiday gifting process...because I do! I probably love it a little too much. Haha! That being said, I all too often get distracted on my shopping jaunts and wind up not getting everything I left the house for.

Take last year for instance. I found myself shopping Christmas Eve night without my family. I was already feeling pretty sad about the situation when I got a text from the hubs of the three of them in Christmas jammies, rockin’ Santa hats, having an epic dance party to our favorite Christmas songs. I vowed right then and there that I would not let that happen again. No holiday shopping is worth missing out on precious memories. I will not spend half my Christmas Eve away from my loved ones. I will be IN the holiday jammies photo this year darn it. And so far, I’m on my way to having a shopping-free December 24th.

In fact, I got to try out this incredible little gadget myself and, while I’m no tech expert like my son or my hubs, even I’m obsessed with the Alcatel IDOL™ 4 with VR Goggles. It has everything you’d want in a phone. First, I need speed. I can’t be waiting around for a less- than-stellar network. Mama’s got things to do...places to be! And my kids aren’t any more patient. The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. Le sigh. It has a 5.2” Full HD display. When it comes to my device’s screen size, I say the bigger the better! I look at viewing pictures, videos, texts and whatnot more than I actually call anyone. Haha! And what kid isn’t all about gaming from their phone these days?

Also, the camera is on point! Hello wide angle imaging, HD video recording and so much more! Oh and I didn’t even mention the exclusive, multi-purpose Boom Key. With one quick press it can do everything from kick in increased loudness and enhanced bass (a big plus for music lovers) to quickly snap a pic in a mere second...even if the phone is locked! You don’t have to worry about missing out on those candid photo opps that come and go in an instant.
