Canary Smart Home Security Device from Verizon

7:43 AM
Hello, my dears! Today, I would love to share my experience of using a smart home security device and how it has been integrated into my life. Firstly, I want to thank the wonderful team at Verizon for providing me with a Canary Home Security device. I never thought how important it would be to have something like this in my home.  

The Canary Smart Home Security is a modern looking device that includes a complete home security system that also monitors the temperature, humidity, and quality of the air. It was super easy to install and access from my phone. This little guy now is now not just a device that protects my house, but it also functions as a small babysitter for my hamster! 

You would laugh, but last week, we decided to take a trip to Sacramento to see our relatives. I didn't want to stress my little friend by traveling 4 hours in the car, and then having to deal with a new environment. We decided to double-task our home security device as a pet camera (multi-application is one of its strengths). I set my hamster's playpen in the bathroom and installed the camera in the best position to keep tabs on everything. And you know what, it turned out to be an amazing trick. 

As soon I connected to wifi, I checked my Canary app on the phone. The apartment was in order, and best of all, my baby hamster was safe and happy to be home unsupervised. Since the camera monitors the temperature as well, I knew that he was totally comfortable by not overheating or being cold. The device itself is quite small, and its modern look will fit into your home interior easily. The retail price for this awesome camera costs only $199.99 that you can get at Verizon. I love the wide variety of smart home products at Verizon that makes life easier. Hard to put a price on peace of mind. Hehe.

As a member of the Verizon Influencer group, I occasionally receive cool products to test drive and share my honest thoughts on. No additional compensation is provided to me. All the opinions here are my own, so you can get the real deal!

Travel with #DestinationOasis

11:08 AM
Hello, babies! Today, I would love to share with you a travel outfit that you should own. Last weekend, we decided to drive all the way to Salinas, the birthplace of legendary author John Steinbeck. We have heard that it is very cute town and it was totally true. We walked around the center perusing shops, and a bit later, we enjoyed a late breakfast. It was really yummy! As for my outfit, it's perfect for excursions like this. I am always looking for comfortable and stylish shoes to walk, and these wonderful summer sandals from Oasis were just perfect for this short trip. I wore a big hat to keep my head under the shade on this sunny day along with a light shirt dress that you can get from Oasis. What do you usually wear when you wander out for a little day trip filled with sightseeing?

What to wear in this chilly spring? | Review VIPme.com #ad

7:58 PM
Hello, guys! I hope you all have a great week. Mine has been pretty busy so far, but I’m having fun. I partnered with VIPme.com to share my experience with their store. You know, when living as a style blogger, it’s good to keep your content fresh and interesting. It is always a great idea to discover new stores and try new things. I was gifted this pretty pleated dress from VIPme.com and now have the pleasure of showing how can you style it. This dress is extremely popular, and I was lucky to get one! Since it is sold out at this moment, I still recommend taking a look at their site and to find a similar style like this maxi dress that you can tailor to your own unique tastes.

When I got their package, I immediately got super excited because it came in a pretty pink box. I then noticed our postman was a bit clumsily and dented one of the sides. Hate it when that happens! After trying on the piece in front of the mirror, I started brainstorming how I would style it. I really love the print on the dress, because I’m a big fan of humming birds. We actually have a humming bird feeder and we get to enjoy hanging out with our little friends buzzing around the porch. It would be cool to take a photo with them while wearing this dress one day ;). Anyway, back to my styling! I decided to wear with my dress a long white blazer.  This wonderful, elegant dress truly captures a perfect spring mood. The material is light and breathes easy. Of course, the location made it a joy to shoot. Also, the VIPme.com team is awesome, and they are giving $5 off on orders over $50 with the unique code: M_SIQueen5. Have fun with shopping, guys!

Happy Mother's Day #bettermatters | #ad

11:09 AM
Smart phones seem to keep evolving and changing our lives even more. It’s pretty neat what we can do these days. This weekend is a perfect example, since Mother’s Day is upon us, and we have an unprecedented number of ways thanks to smart phone technology to thank our awesome, brilliant, loving, and all-important mothers! 

I want to say “Happy Mother’s Day” to all moms across the world!  I’m dedicating this post to my two moms (mine and my husband’s) by writing this post dedicated to them.  They have always supported, loved, and motivated me to keep pursuing my dreams.  I mentioned earlier that I’m not able to celebrate Mother’s Day with my mom because she lives in another country.  The good news is that today’s high-tech offerings allow me to be super “close” to her anyway!  

Last month, I mentioned that I’m an official influencer of the best cell service in America- Verizon, and that I got a new phone to test. Seriously people, you can’t believe how much I love my Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge. It takes fantastic photos, but more importantly at the moment, I am able to stay in touch with my family in Kazakhstan when I need to most.


I have been using Skype since I left my home country in 2009. It was the only way to communicate with people I care about most and love. After a couple of years, it got even better, because it became possible to communicate with several people at once. It saved me time, money and was efficient in keeping me in touch with everyone. Usually, I call from my computer, but we made plans to go out this weekend. The best part here is that it doesn’t matter where am I, because I can easily call my family and stay connected. Better is the matter when you have the best connection! Again Happy Mother's Day and enjoy my photos that I took with Samsung Galaxy S7 edge special for Mother's Day, plus all photos are unedited!!!!

P.S. So proud to be a member of a cool team influencers, all opinions are my own and my post is about my own experience.

What to wear for Mother's Day or Spring Collection at NY & Company #ad

2:35 PM
Hello, my dears! Mother’s Day is just around the corner, and you some of you may be thinking about what you should you wear to have a lunch or dinner with your mom. It’s a special day for many of us. Sadly, my mother lives in another country, and I’ve seen her only once in the past 3 years.  My mother-in-law lives in the different state. Not being able to celebrate in person, I decided to help make your fashion decisions easier! This comes just in time to take a look at the new spring collection at NY&Company.

Many ladies will probably go for floral prints, elegant and lady-like outfits. Since this approach lines up with my usual style, I picked for my first look a striped flared dress from the Eva Mendes Collection along with a striped belt that you buy at any NY&Company store. If you take your mom to one of your favorite spots in the town, this dress will work perfectly for you to wear yourself or even give as a gift.

For my second look, I decided to go for something more comfortable. This is ideal if you plan to have a spa-day or extra shopping time with your mom. A flattering top in pastel and frayed jeans with matching kitten-heeled shoes are a perfect combo with a positive spring vibe. I hope all my readers enjoy Mother’s Day and a big thanks to all Mothers across the world!!!
