I can’t believe it’s already the end of November!
But these recaps are some of my favorite posts to share. I get to tell you about my favorite things from products to entertainment while also recapping all the posts from the month.
I’m still playing around with the format a bit so that’s why this month’s looks much different than the one from September or August. Make sure to let me know which elements you prefer and if there’s anything else you think I should include.

A Few of My November Favorites
Google Home Mini | Someone in a Facebook group alerted us that Spotify was giving away free Google Home Minis to new and existing premium customers. I doubted it but still gave it a try. About a week later, I received my beautiful aqua Google Home Mini! I always thought the smart speakers like this were pointless. I quickly learned how cool they actually are and how helpful they can be! I got this one for free but I would definitely purchase another in the future. They would even make a great gift this holiday season!
Samsung Chromebook 3 | It was difficult taking my full sized laptop on the go. I started thinking about getting a tablet or chromebook that would be much easier to take with me. I really liked the 2-in-1 tablets but they were more than I wanted to spend. On a trip to Erie with my boyfriend, we popped into Best Buy to check a few things out. We found their “open box” case full of laptops, chromebooks, etc. that were returned. It was a Samsung Chromebook 3, which I ended up purchasing. I spent $120 on it instead of closer to $200. It’s 11 inches and it’s SO perfect for what I wanted! Now, I’m able to do schoolwork or blog work while I’m on my break at work.
