New Games and Gaming Devices You Will Love

Looking for some fun games to play with the kids? We have some suggestions.

Mario Kart is one of those games which turn a room full of strangers into a room full of new buddies- or at least rowdy racers.  With equal parts skill, luck, and know how, Mario Kart has consistently been a gem of this gaming’s generation.  The latest in the franchise, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, dare I say may be the brightest gem so far.  With almost all characters unlocked to begin with, this game is built for multiplayer.  As the new Switch will show you, it is easy to grab a controller and play.  Each player takes the mini controller for their racer and plays.

With tons of characters to choose from, everyone can pick their favorite without arguments.  Characters of different wights and sizes act differently and effect your controls, as do the type of vehicle and even the tires selected.  The game also includes support for amiibo’s and amiibo cards, which unlock more content in game, allowing for even more customization. Mario Kart Deluxe 8 is available no for $59.99 from retail locations of via download fro the eShop.

 

We have two indie titles-  one for the 3DS and one for the Playstation 4. Fun, inexpensive, and most gamers will enjoy them and be able to play (no master skill sets required).

This is the third Box Boy game in the line, Bye Bye Box Boy , is a game where players use the power of boxes to solve various puzzles as Qbby.  This game is an enjoyable puzzle game which is simple to get into, but difficult to put down.  My 9 year old has loved every Box Boy game and this is no different, but now with a few additions like 4 new powers, baby boxes to rescue, and new environmental issues to contend with (like water, wind, and scales) there is more to do.  He enjoys the Box Boy series- it’s tough but not too tough for him to figure out after thinking about it and trying a few things, or in some cases, with some help from Dad.  Bye By Box Boy is available now on the eShop on the Nintendo 3DS and retails for $4.99.

The Unforgettable Bohemian City-Break: 2 Outfits to Make Your Travels Dreamy

pic1

There is something charming and adventurous in a city break away from home, even if by definition such trips are short in length. They are almost always spontaneous, challenging, romantic and full of amazing surprises. Discovering a new city, a new culture, style, and getting immersed in a strange and unique environment, getting a taste of a place’s most cherished landmarks and entertainment facilities – all make a city break a fun adventure to embark in wholeheartedly.

Some cities, however, and mostly the ones on the Old Continent, are also romantic by nature, compelling you to dress appropriately for the occasion. If you are a bohemian at heart, and you plan a quick getaway in an old, fabulous and romantic city in the world, these are two boho outfits you should consider taking along.

1. The Boho-Chic Bardot Dress

Worn by famous silver screen diva Brigitte Bardot, the modern Bardot boho dress can accompany you no matter where you go. Stylish and feminine, comfortable, sexy and sporting a retro flair to die for, you can style up the Bardot dress any way you like. Why is this perfect outfit to take on a bohemian trip?

-It is comfortable (as all boho dresses feature natural, soft and skin-friendly fabrics such as cotton, silk, chiffon, velvet, wool, etc.) and thin enough to allow you to walk and sightsee all day long in summer.

Pack Light but Get These 3 Stylish Accessories to Make All Your Travels Fabulous

Traveling is an important part of our lives and an experience one shouldn’t avoid. But when it comes to traveling, many trade style for comfort in all aspects. Once upon a time, men and women used to travel wearing tuxedos and evening gowns. While our fast paced world doesn’t encourage such inclinations, this doesn’t mean a modern girl shouldn’t pack a few stylish accessories to take a short city-break or a week-long vacation. After all, to look good means to feel good – even if you walk unbeaten paths or enjoy hip summer resorts.

There are plenty of resources on how to travel and pack light for a week’s vacation and you should follow such expert tips and tricks. Fortunately, some stylish accessories for stylish travel girls are weightless but so important! They add just a bit of sparkle and glam to a traveler’s outfit, even if you prefer jeans, boots and tees or boho summer dressed and strappy sandals. Let’s see together three

such fabulous accessories you just have to take along to look great and feel just the same!

1. A Pair of Nude Flat Strappy Sandal

If you are headed to an exclusive beach resort, an old European capital or a safari adventure at the end of the world, a pair of nude summer strappy sandals will be your best friend. Nude shoes in general are a girl’s best companion as they match any type of outfit and they make your feet look longer and slimmer. You can wear practically anything with them and they will make you look effortlessly chic.

  • Tip for picking the best nude sandals: when you buy nude footwear make sure the shoes shade matches your own skin shade. If you intent to get a good tan or are already featuring a gorgeous summer tan, make sure the sandals’ nude shade is equivalent to your skin’s one.

WIN Adorable NAOT Shoes or Boots

With the weather outside quite frightening- and good grief, it’s freezing!- you want shoes that are warm and comfortable, but that doesn’t mean you don’t want to look cute as well.   NAOT makes some adorable shoes, boots, and warm-weather-wear like sandals ( I know, can you even remember warm weather right now?) for anything Mother Nature might throw your way, or what climate you might happen to live in or travel to.

I’ve recently been sent the NAOT VISTOSO, and I have to say I really like them.  Here is what I had to say from my review-

“When you are ready to head indoors, and need something a little less “outdoorsy” but still ready for winter festivities, the NAOT VISTOSO will be your go to boot. Zipping up the side, this ankle boot is too cute with a little bow across it (ready for the holidays!) It is padded for extra comfort, and has a memory foam footbed. As you wear it, the bottom bed and microfiber molds to your foot, making it more and more comfortable as you go along. The heel is sturdy, the sole is flexible, and you won’t feel like you are doing a balancing act all evening. These are boots you won’t feel the need to kick off quickly. Get them at http://naot.com or Amazon for about $200.”

Luca + Danni Jewelry (And Win One!)

For those of us who have not finished out holiday purchases as of yet, its time to get that special someone in your life something they will really like.  But lets say your budget is tight this year, or you just need that little something to really hit it out of the park this year.  I suggest Luca And Danni jewelry.

When purchasing jewelry, it is important to know what this little work of art means.  The background behind Luca and Danni is an interesting one, as per Fred Magnanimi the creator of the jewelry line, “An investment banker by background, I left a career on Wall Street to reconnect with my roots at my family’s Rhode Island-based jewelry manufacturing business. In April 2013 my younger brother Danny lost a difficult battle with Leukemia – he was 33 years old. Danny’s dream was to create a unique line of handcrafted, American-made jewelry that inspired others through the journey of life. Fueled by my brother’s passion and a burning desire to carry forth his vision, Luca + Danni was born.  Named after my two young children, Luca + Danni reminds us that through love, inspiration, and passion, we should all boldly embrace the journey of life.”
