Non-Sweet Treats For Your Sweet for Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day Treats That Will Last As Long As Your Love

While I would never turn down chocolate, or flowers, there’s a couple items that I’d rather have this year. Here’s a few suggestion for those who deserve something special this Valentine’s Day.


Moto Z Play

Those who’ve seen me out lately may have noticed my newest tech accessory, the Moto Z Play and the Mods that come with it. I am loving this phone/camera/speaker/projector! That’s right you can actually turn your phone into a movie projector, boombox, battery, camera, and more, in a snap. AND the battery lasts for up to 50-hour battery, it’s TurboPower means you can get up to 9 hours of power in just 15 minutes of charging, the camera is 16 MP and uses laser autofocus and you can instantly unlock and lock your phone, log-in to apps, and even make mobile payments with your fingerprint. The display is brilliant (5.5″ 1080p Super AMOLED display) and it’s super fast too!

Add a mod or two to the gift and you’ll have an instant party with the JBL® SoundBoost — as it’s really, really loud (I’ve used it for a fitness class). The 70-inch with the Moto Insta-Share Projector is perfect for an on the fly presentation and the the Power Pack instantly adds up to 22 hours of life to your phoneYou can also match your phone to your own personal style as often as you want with Style Shells. and the Hasselblad True Zoom camera Mod adds an extra dimension to your photos, and fits so tidily in my purse should I need it.

Mix it up this Valentine’s Day plans with a few extras with the Moto Z Play and Moto Mods.

  1. Catch a movie with the Moto Insta-Share Projector.
  2. Set the mood with your JBL SoundBoost Speaker.
  3. Capture each romantic moment with your Hasselblad True Zoom.
  4. Take the Incipio offGRID Power Pack on your romantic getaway for a phone that will keep giving all weekend long.
  5. Keep in touch with video on the ultra clear Moto Z Play.

I’ve never had a phone I’ve loved this much. Doesn’t your partner deserve to feel this love too???
