Tyler's Office Design

Share to Pinterest
I partnered with RadioShack for this post. All opinions are my own. #GiftSmart #BlackFriday, #CyberMonday

My husband is what I loving refer to as "techy". Not the "I must have the newest version of the I-phone" techy, but more like he put a commercial grade firewall on his Christmas list. It has it's benefits; I got me a custom built computer thanks to his wanting to learn how to build a motherboard. But, it also has its drawbacks, he wouldn't let me get a baby monitor app for my phone because it has the potential to be hacked, he knows how to hack it! I'm rambling...

We are finishing our basement right now because he needs a place to work from home. I've been working on his office design:

Carissa Miss: Tyler's Masculine Office Design #GiftSmart #ad
I wanted something masculine yet bright since it's in the basement. In addition to this pendant lamp I'm installing multiple recessed lights in the space. I'll build some awesome bookshelves like these, but there will be 2 sets of double door closets as well. I designed the space completely around this desk from Restoration Hardware. Since it's completely out of my budget {$1700+} you can betyourbottomdollar I'll be doing my own version. I already know how I'm going to do it! I want this chair for my office so I might just buy 2. Ty requested this art print and I love the architectural/industrial feel to it. I'll probably build a custom frame for this map and add one or two more prints. How do you feel about ficus trees? I want one for my office too. {Do you notice my trend? I can't help but project my wants into his design:)}

For Christmas I wanted to get him something NOT on his wish list that satisfies his "tech" but some gear for his new office. RadioShack has curated a selection of interactive toys and innovative products that are perfect for anyone on your list this season. {Black Friday Ad HERE!}They will also ship for FREE! Yay!

I picked up the Beats by Dr. Dre Solo2 Headphones and the Beats by Dr. Dre Pill Speaker, which are perfect complements because he'll want to tune out the rest of the house as he's working from home. RadioShack also offers a Price Match Guarantee so I knew I'd be getting the best possible price without driving around looking for the best deal. Awesome customer service and multiple ways to pay means one-stop-shopping for all my hubby's techy needs. Find the RadioShack nearest you!

Do More Knowing your Child is Safe

My Christmas dreams came true, courtesy of Levana. All opinions are my own!

I have been squealing like a little girl because Christmas came early for me. I got a new gadget that I've been eyeing but hasn't been a top priority. Now that I've been using it, I seriously can't believe I went so long without it: a wireless, digital, top of the line, baby monitor!


For those of you who already have kids, I probably don't need to tell you why this little gadget is so awesome. Those of you who don't quite yet, tune in. 


Not only can you keep an eye on what's going on in the room with a high-tech monitor, you can talk to your child through the built in microphone! I looove this feature as it's handy when they need consoling and to know you are there but you don't necessarily want to intervene.

Because there are no lights that blink and the camera moves silently, your child will never even hear you tune in. I also like that you can turn music on and off remotely as well. Because of Levana's commitment to safety, all  monitors are digital and wireless, eliminating the risk of cord strangulation. They only develop monitors so they are always developing the newest technology.

Being able to check in on him makes me feel so much more relaxed while he's in his crib. We never got one before because the other types of monitors can be hacked! Thanks to ClearVu digital wireless technology, these monitors are secure! Makes my security obsessed hubby at ease as well too knowing no one else can sneak a peek. 

For all of November, Levana is offering this monitor with 2 cameras for $50 off: Only $179.99 instead of 219.99. Don't wait!

Ultimate Gift Guide Round Up

Share to Pinterest
Can you believe Thanksgiving is in two days???? What are your family traditions? How do you feel about most retailers opening Thanksgiving evening? I'm kind of on the fence. I love shopping Black Friday with my sisters, but with door buster deals starting as early as 4pm, that really cuts into family time. If people want to shop on Thanksgiving that's totally cool, it's the employees that I care about! That's why I'm all for online shopping. In fact, I usually try to have all my shopping done BEFORE Thanksgiving so I can enjoy the season without fighting crowds.

This year, I'm helping you out by putting together a list of all my favorite tools that you can purchase online. They are all products I use ALL. THE. TIME. Seriously, I own every single one of these items and love them. If you are serious about getting into projects put these on your wish list. If you know someone who likes to do projects, buy these.
The best part? Most of these items are under $100! *affiliate links*















I've teamed up with 8 other bloggers to bring you the Ultimate Gift Guide Round Up! Click on image to get more details. Let the shopping begin!
