Garmin Vivofit 3

My kids have been asking me for a activity tracking watch for a couple of years now. After researching up I found that the vivofit jr. 2 by Garmin was the most affordable for the features we wanted. Happy to partner up with them today to share the details!

It’s essentially a mix of tennis + ping pong, and it is so fun! I feel like I was able to pick it up and improve so much faster! The … Read more

It made me sort of scared to ride my bike after that and so when I did it again in front of my 9th grade crush (die inside) bikes were dead to me. ūüėČ When I saw the Guardian Bikes crew on Shark Tank I knew I wanted to check this out! (Spoiler alert: they landed a deal with Mark Cuban, go Guardian!)\So … Read more
