*This is a sponsored post. I have received some of these items to review. These opinions are my own. 

What’s UP & coming in the Travel Tech world? I’ll tell you!


Recently, I was treated to a Lunch & Learn Event #TNTSLC at the gorgeous Hilton in the heart of downtown Salt Lake City, hosted by Techlicious,Traveling Mom, and the Consumer Technology Association. They introduced us to some new products I have never seen and some products I have been eyeing. I was excited to be able to try these out!


From smart living to ways to get your tech-on-the-move … these gadgets & gizmos will help you during your travels AND your everyday living. I mean, you really do NEED them.


Hello, Santa?



I’ve already put these items to good use!

JVC Gummy Headphones, Misfit RAY, Otterbox case

Three things I really want… ahem Santa are you listening?

1. KNOMO Clutch (short for knowledge + mobility) is a handy and practically perfect clutch with all the compartments to keep your devices organized-while-looking-chic, including a portable charger!


2. Panasonic Lumix FZ300

Why? I live in the Real UP House peeps! People come here all the time and they always ask if I can take their pics. Most of the time I do … with their iPhone! Now how cool would it be if I could UP the game and be like, “Hey, I have THIS baby!” BOOM!


So here’s the official stats on it, you’re welcome.
The Lumix FZ300’s outstanding lens performance with full range F2.8 aperture (35mm camera equivalent: 25-600mm) makes it possible to clearly capture moving subjects at a high shutter speed even at a great distance—something that has not been achieved by any digital compact camera except for the LUMIX FZ200, its predecessor. The splash and dust proof capability make the LUMIX FZ300 the all-around great camera for sports, outdoor and events. MSRP: $599.00 current street price $499.99  Capture moments with superb 4K imaging performance in both video and exclusive 4K PHOTO
 24X (25-600mm) full-range F2.8 aperture Leica Lens  Worry-free splashproof / dustproof body


Which leads me to my next one…how great would this little gadget be for all your adventures in the great wide somewhere?!!  ↓

3. HP Sprocket
The HP Sprocket Photo Printer transforms your favorite smartphone or tablet pics into vibrant, shareable prints. This compact printer goes virtually anywhere; with Bluetooth connectivity it enables you to create 2×3͟ sticky-back snapshots whenever the moment strikes. Give your prints a pop of personality with the HP Sprocket App, which lets you customize with borders, stickers, filters and more. Price: $129.99

First off, Hilton is beautiful.

And it’s in the heart of downtown Salt Lake City right by all the best shopping, my favorite, City Creek.


If you have a vacation soon, you should consider booking with Hilton. You can check in with Hilton from your phone! How awesome is that?!

There's charging units at the base of the couches... you can't get more tech-y than that!

But of course, what I’m always interested in, the pool! Hey, a mermaid needs her water! And boy do they deliver!


Hilton also spoiled us with THE MOST delicious fare! Are you ready to drool?

I will be back to dine at their restaurant, Spencer’s for sure!
