Guest Post: Where you should get your iPhone 4S: Sprint, Verizon, or AT&T?

Most of today's conveniences are owed to mobile (hence wireless) connectivity and the internet. Most services that run people's lifestyle nowadays are internet based; some examples of such services are social networking, satellite navigation, emails, instant messaging, weather forecasting and so on.

More than a decade ago, cell phones only served basic GSM functions such as calling and texting. Nowadays, tech savvies have learned to make a distinction between a basic cell phone and a smart phone. Basic cell phones only focuses on basic functions, i.e. calling and text messaging, and usually features less powerful processors with processing speeds lower than 1GHz. It is also noticeable that basic phones have basic operating systems and has very little multitasking ability. Smart phones, on the other hand, have faster processors that run on clock times much faster than 1GHz and sometimes have dual or quad core processors. As opposed to basic phones, smart phones have great multi-tasking ability and runs of famous operating systems like Windows Mobile, Android, or the iOS. Among these three operating systems iOS is commonly regarded as the best; and not without good reason. The iPhone series has consistently presented us with the best hardware and most reliable software. It is with little wonder that each of the phones in the iPhone series had been eagerly anticipated and warmly accepted by the smart phone fanatics. And now that the iPhone 4S is out in the US market on 3 different providers (AT&T, Sprint, and Verizon), many are itching to get their hands on one. However, we strongly suggest caution when getting an iPhone 4S as selecting the wrong provider can cost you more than others and ruin the user experience.

There are mainly 3 choices when getting an iPhone 4S. These are AT&T, Sprint, and Verizon. All three are successful network carriers on their own and have done this through great services. However, not all three offers the same type of service. Otherwise, only one of the three will flourish as there will be no competition. In choosing where to get your iPhone 4S, we will focus on these differences. Mainly the price and what features they offer given a package.

Mom ME Time Giveaway Hop Sponsor Spotlight: Strappys Decorative Bra Straps

Have you ever purchased a beautiful tank top or sexy little dress only to find out that your bra straps show when you're wearing it, making it less sexy and more tacky? A few years ago someone came up with a "solution" and decided to create invisible bra straps... Have you ever tried those? I honestly think they're even more tacky than letting your original bra straps show!

Well, recently I was introduced to Strappys- the true solution to unsightly bra straps! Strappys are decorative bra straps that easily attach to any strapless or convertible bra allowing you to let your straps show in a fashionable way.

Cleavitz Review and Giveaway *Closed*

I have always been a "busty" girl and that means I've always had a cleavage issue... Well, when I was younger it was no big deal. My motto was "if you got it, flaunt it", but now that I'm a mom I like to keep the girls under control which usually means higher cut tops and layers.

I was recently introduced to Cleavitz, which is a half top made to cover cleavage comfortably. I was so thrilled when they agreed to send me a Cleavitz top to review. After browsing the many different style options and colors Cleavitz has to offer I decided to go with a pretty turquoise cotton top to review.

Cleavitz features:
• No tugging and adjusting your camisole or tank top
• Maximum comfort without binding elastic, clips, snaps, or tape
• Cool, light-weight material replaces bulky, bunchy undergarments
• Patent-pending design gives you freedom to dress sexy, subtle, or sweet
• From downtown to uptown, Cleavitz® goes from day to night in seconds

Snack Healthy with Libby’s Single-Serve Fruit Cups! Review and Giveaway *Closed*

Being a mom of two young kids I'm constantly searching for snacks that are delicious AND healthy. Well, luckily I was recently introduced to Libby’s Single-Serve Fruit Cups and they are just that!

We were recently sent a variety of Libby's new Single-Serve Fruit Cups to review including diced peaches, diced pears, mixed fruit and cherry mixed fruit. The first thing I noticed about these fruit cups is the size... Bigger than the average fruit cup, Libby's fruit cups contain 6oz. of California-grown fruit. But more importantly I noticed the taste... Libby's fruit cups taste amazing and everyone in the house enjoys them!

Libby's Single-Serve Fruit Cups are the perfect size for an afternoon snack, a dinner side-dish, or even to throw in a lunchbox and send to school with lunch. But what's great about these fruit cups is the fact that they're only 120 calories per cup and contain no unhealthy additives.

Available at your local supermarket, Libby's Single-Serve Fruit Cups sell for $.99-$1.39, making them convenient and easy on your wallet!

**Win It**
One lucky reader is going to win a package of Libby's Single-Serve Fruit Cups that includes 3 cups of each flavor variety, totaling 12 cups total.
