How A Busy Person Stays Connected

How often do you say this day flew by? Or I can’t believe it’s Friday?


I feel like I say these all the time. Between running my social media and marketing company Katie DeVito, LLC, coordinating NJ Unemployed events plus building my Origami Owl business, I am always doing something. I mean I hit 100 designers on my team last night. Pretty amazing. Never in a million years did I think that when I signed up for Origami Owl that I would have 5 people on my team, but 100. I love Origami Owl!


That being said I’m always running somewhere for something. Not to mention there’s always plain ole life to deal with too. Staying connected is one of the most important things in my life (the hubby comes first). Between checking emails, my clients social media sites, my social media sites I don’t know what I would do without my devices.


I love that as a Verizon customer if I don’t have wifi on my devices I can always use the Personal Hotspot on my iPhone to connect my devices. This way I’m always connected!


My favorite devices? My iPhone and my iPad.

The BlackBerry is Back!



As you all know the BlackBerry is back and better before.

I recently wrote a post about the Z10 which I loved. Check out my post HERE

As for the Q10, it has similar characteristics to that of the Z10. Here are some of my favorite features.


  • The keys are tighter and closer than before with Q10.
  •  You can post a tweet or Facebook status directly from your Hub. Type “tw” or “fb” and your message from the Hub and it will connect.
  • When you search for Tim your friend it gives you their contact info and you can click updates and it will search for info regarding that person.
  • How about the incredible battery life! The Q10 has a removable very large battery very large battery. The larger battery makes for a longer lasting experience.
  • I found this incredibly interesting…. instead of a white background they made it a black background this actually helps the battery life! Who knew?
  • You can video chat with the BBM!
  • You can share what’s on your phone/desktop.

Blackberry combines personal and work. You no longer need to carry multiple devices, plus you are able to still separate them both with one simple device. Amazing!

Up All Night – Jawbone Up Review


Being a Verizon Wireless Ambassador I’m able to try out fun new products that help make your life easier, more organized and in this case more aware.


I recently tested out the Jawbone Up which is a rubber bracelet that tracks your movement, sleep, etc. Since I’ve been trying to make a lifestyle change lately this was a perfect new gadget for me to test out.


“UP™ is a system that takes a holistic approach to a healthy lifestyle. The wristband tracks your movement and sleep in the background. The app displays your data, lets you add things like meals and mood, and delivers insights that keep you moving forward.”


I know I sleep a lot. I always have. It was interesting for me to see how much I actually sleep, how long it takes me to fall asleep, etc. Some days I slept for 9 hours some for 7. But it’s interesting to see how long it takes to fall asleep and how many “real” hours I was actually sleeping. If I had a super busy day with a lot on my mind, it took me longer to fall asleep. While that may not be that surprising I think it’s pretty cool that the Jawbone knows and recognizes that.


I also like that it tracks my steps throughout the day. I’m also able to include my workouts and input what I did at the gym that day.


The Jawbone is very easy to use. Just set it up, turn it on, put it on and go about your day. Then all you have to do is hook your Jawbone up to your phone for it to upload all your new information. You can create a team and share your progress with your friends and family or just monitor it for yourself.


If you are interested in becoming more aware of your movements, sleep, and overall health, this is a gadget you need to invest in.
