Cut the Cord and Enjoy Your Music with Jabra Step Wireless Bluetooth Stereo Earbuds-Giveaway

One of the most frustrating things about headphones and earbuds is that the connector often breaks before the headphones themselves do. In fact, on a recent plane trip I had to hold the connector of my favourite pair of earbuds into the outlet through my entire flight because it wasn’t registering otherwise.

That’s why when I love using wireless earbuds for my phone. And for inexpensive yet high-quality earbuds, Jabra is a great choice. The company specializes in providing affordable headsets and earbuds with plenty of great features and recently the company sent me its new Jabra Step Wireless Bluetooth Stereo Earbuds so that I could check them out for myself.

TELUS Inspires Today’s Youth Through We Day and the We365 App

For the last three years I’ve had the privilege of attending We Day Saskatchewan and I always come out of the event impressed by the passion of today’s youth and inspired to make a bigger difference in the world myself. Teaching my boys about social responsibility and supporting the causes they believe in is a big part of that and this year I decided that my eight-year-old son Zackary was finally old enough to attend We Day with me.

TELUS has been a proud sponsor of We Day each time I attended and this year was no exception. I’ve been a TELUS customer for a long time and while that’s partially because the company offers such amazing smartphone plans, it’s also because of its passion for bettering the world. The ongoing sponsorship of We Day is a perfect example of that.

My personal favourite product was the new Olympic Dairy Chia Yoghurt. I often add Chia seeds to my yoghurt because the crunchy little seeds boost the protein and fibre in my meals. Now Olympic Dairy has made enjoying Chia seeds even easier for me! I also loved the Made Good granola bars and granola minis. These organic bars are nut-free and contain whole grains with six essential vitamins. But the best part is that they’re absolutely delicious! [Read more...]
