I Want To Travel Here Next! Ramona’s Vacay Files

Every time I see wonderful architecture like this, it reminds me how many places I would love to see in my future travels. What really makes me passionate about traveling to alternative destinations is the reality that it usually costs the same amount of money as a tried and true trip to the islands. Now don’t get me wrong, I love the aqua- emerald waters and warm sun on my skin too, but some people have only been to The Bahamas.

Keep That Resolution! Here’s 6 Apps That Will Help!

First, Let me say Happy New Year! 2017 is going to be amazing for you I am sure. If you know me at all, you know that I am an optimist 95% of the time and I love to share everything I think will help enrich someone’s life.

So when I went searching over the Holiday break, I found some pretty cool apps to help me keep my resolutions and I think they will stick. Let’s Get To It!

  1. Waterlogged

I needed to drink more water darnit! A Co-Worker had a similar app so I finally did it. I spent the extra in-app purchase because I can’t take ads and I really like the functionality of this one.  It also reports your great water consumption behavior to the IOS Health App. Yay.

2. Wokamon

I love walking. I prefer it to running not only because the awesome David Buer recommends it, but I am pretty efficient at it. I’ve always been a super fast walker and it’s quite effective for weight loss for me. So when I saw this cute app where the monster hatches and grows with every step you take, I thought it was a great app to break the monotony. I also think it’s great for kids.

3. Productivity Day Planner

400x400bb-2

This Planner is AWESOME because it’s also like a life coach/ professional organizer. It not only gets into why you haven’t accomplished your goals yet, it makes you outline the immediate ways to START towards them and even sends alerts. It Gets Your Mind Right…then syncs with your calendar. Yaaas…

4. To:Day

400x400bb-3

If you are in any business where you have to plan big events or even just a birthday party or wedding…this is a beautiful,  easy to follow app. Very nice.

5. 7MWC: 7 Minute Workout Challenge

400x400bb-4

It’s been raining for days and I can’t get out and walk but at least I can get an extreme workout in with this boss app. This app requires no equipment- only you and your will. It will kick your butt but at least it’s only 7 minutes!

6. 24Me

 

400x400bb-5

Last but not least is the 24ME Calendar/Planner/Assistant and OMG do I love this app. Whew. I feel like I just got a personal assistant and it has already paid for itself in 3 days.

Not only do I set goals, etc, it will sync with your calendars- which is not as common as you think. You can pay your bills from the calendar reminder and even send birthday gifts when you see someone’s birthday pop up. You can send flowers to a client or mom or anyone on your contact list.

Check them out and remember if you just do what you need to do for 30 days, THE YEAR IS YOURS!

Ramona’s Inside and Out Holiday Theme 2016


Whether folks know it or not, Christmas is my favorite Holiday of the Year.

I believe feeling good is a choice and most decide to not only feel good but treat each other with the live Jesus’ birth intended to invoke.


My dad loved to decorate and so I also think Aesthetically, this is why I tend to get Griswaldy.

Im not done but check out my theme I happened to match both inside and out.
