SXSW Interactive

Live at SXSW 2017 Mashable House with Lennox

One of the hottest places to be during SXSW Interactive is the Mashable House! This year, I had an up close and personal experience with one brand who brought the first-of-its-kind exhibition to show off the mix of art and engineering. The Degrees of Perfect activation by Lennox was an amazing and brilliant way to bring in creatives, tech enthusiasts, and innovators and show off the mural painted by Montreal street artist Fluke from A’shop. 

Go behind the scenes with me as I interviewed Fluke on Facebook LIVE and had some fun afterwards!

Hottest Tech for SXSW 2016 from Verizon

SXSW 2016 is just around the corner! It's that time again for Interactive, Film, and Music to take over the city of Austin. I've teamed up with Verizon to share the hottest new phones and tech accessories that are sure to keep you powered up for your trip and activities. Watch the video to learn more, but I've also listed each of the products with details below:

Samsung Galaxy S7

  • $28/month for 24 months; retail price is $672
  • Galaxy S7 withstands splashes, spills and even dunks
  • Has dual–pixel camera with faster, more precise autofocus and a new low–light sensor. All combined, it means fewer blurry photos and crisp detail even in soft light. Also, get brighter selfies in low–light settings, thanks to the device’s selfie flash.

Samsung Galaxy S7 edge

  • $33/month for 24 months; retail price $792
  • Galaxy S7 edge is lightweight and is encapsulated by an envious, dual curved edge design
  • Get richer content support with the extended edge panel, and use the Task Edge to quickly access frequently used commands
  • Galaxy S7 edge resists splashes, spills and even dunks as well
  • You can expand the devices memory up to six times with a microSD card, going from 32GB to 200GB, for example. That’s like, 50,000 songs, 130 movies and 200,00 photos

  • It’s ultra-thin and super lightweight

Kate Spade Phone Cases or Speck Grip Cases

  • Each brand caters to either men’s or women’s style, and it coincides with Verizon’s Case Loyalty Program, which is a limited time offer and cannot be combined with other offers and promotions. Here’s how the program works:
    • Purchase an eligible standard smartphone or tablet case, either online or in-store, and receive an email with a 25% off discount promo code within 90 days of purchase. Once email is received: visit vzw.com/accessories/cases and select a new standard case and enter the promo code during checkout or simply bring the email to a Verizon Wireless Communications Store. All promo codes will be sent within 90 days of purchase and must be redeemed within 30 days of receipt.
  1. Offer 1- Redeem 25% off promo code and receive a new 30% off promo code for your next case purchase.
  2. Offer 2- Redeem 30% off promo code and receive a new 35% off promo code for your next case purchase.
  3. Offer 3- Redeem 35% off promo code and receive a new 35% off promo code for your next case purchase.
  • Depending on the situation or a mood, your personal style may reflect a serious side over your quirky side, a toned down vibe or blast of full on bling. So why should it be any different with your smartphone or tablet? How awesome would it be to have a case for every style mood or occasion, so you’d have the flexibility to switch the look of your device to reflect you?

Staying Refreshed at SXSW with Cottonelle

SXSW Interactive was in full swing this weekend and it was fun to be one of the Social Correspondents for Cottonelle's Refresh Lounge.  The news was passed quickly of how cool the space as well as the amazing services that were provided -- shoe shines, massages, hair and makeup refreshing, drinks, device charging, changing rooms, and lockers -- awesome list, right? 

On Thursday, I received a fun package in the mail to get me "refreshed" for the event!  I was prepared for everything!
