iHome's iBN6, a rugged waterproof speaker.
Influence Central received products to facilitate this post. All opinions are our own. Looking for a great gift idea for the music lover in your life this holiday season? We were excited to discover two new speaker systems from iHome that are great for listening on the go, as well as in the home or office. I’m really excited about the iBN6, a rugged waterproof speaker that you can take with you to the beach, on the boat, or to your outdoor barbecues or picnics. The iBN6 operates on Bluetooth wireless and you can connect it to your phone or computer. Pairing the iBN6 with my phone was so simple with Near Field Technology (NFC). I simply turned on my Bluetooth capabilities, found the device, and with one-touch they were paired and I was able to stream from my phone’s Samsung Milk Music app, one of my favorites on my Galaxy S5 for listening to different music genres!

Skylanders Trap Team
Influence Central received a complimentary sample of Skylanders Trap Team in order facilitate this review. All of the opinions expressed are our own. Skylanders Trap Team is the newest Skylander game which has new characters, new villains, and many more awesome additions. One of the awesome additions is the Trap Crystals which allow you to trap bosses. The bosses must be trapped in a crystal that matches their element. Once the boss is trapped you can play as him or her for a limited amount of time. Once that time is up then that creature will be teleported away and you will resume playing as your Skylander or Trap Master. Once a villain is caught, it’ll be caught forever and you can catch multiple villains of the same element in the same trap.
Atlantis Paradise Island Recognizes the Importance of Family Vacations. Let the
Disclosure: Atlantis Paradise Island is a client of Influence Central. We all know we should do it, but somehow, we don’t take summer vacation as often as we should. It’s so important to unplug, clear our minds of stress, and re-connect as a family, and what better time than when the kids are on break from school? After many years of using my hard-earned vacation days on Fridays and on school in-service planning days (more for childcare reasons than for taking a break), I recently made a conscious commitment to take at least one week every summer to get away with my family. At the time, my eldest daughter was two short years away from heading off to college, and all of a sudden time seemed so much more precious. Funny how that works!
Top Must-Have Products to Settle in with Baby
Disclosure: Stacy DeBroff is a spokesperson for CeraVe® Baby Skincare Products. The transition from summer to fall has traditionally meant the last opportunity for relaxation before the hectic back-to-school season. But for a large number of families, this timeframe represented a special milestone – the birth of a new baby. In fact, July through October have proven to be the most popular months for U.S. births, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), in 2012 and 2013. As parents settle in at home with their new arrivals, they’ve now gained a better sense of the must-have items they need to ease those mesmerizing, yet exhausting, first weeks of life with a newborn. However, with fall upon us and winter just around the corner, here are some of my best tips to help take care of these very special deliveries:

TaoTronics Elune Dimmable Desk Lamp
Influence Central received a complimentary TaoTronics Elune Dimmable Eye-Care LED Desk Lamp in order to write this review. All of the views expressed are our own. Whether we regularly bring work home to get a jump start on the next day, have our kids work on homework at a designated desk, or appreciate a targeted light for a crafty project, a quality desk or work lamp is important. Traditional desk lamps tend to burn out just when we need them, can be harsh on our eyes or give the room an ugly glow. TaoTronics offers an Elune Dimmable Eye-Care LED Desk Lamp that provides an innovative and safe new way to work at your desk.
