Best Buy makes planning your wedding registry fun with these top five picks

Some think that picking out the engagement ring is tough – and in some cases it is. The right “size, shape, color”, is it new or something that is a family heirloom. When it comes to picking out your registry, you can breathe a sign of relief because Best Buy wedding registry takes all the stress out of your wedding planning with home goods that you’ll both enjoy. These are my top five picks from Best Buy to help any engaged couples new life together the best.

1 – TV anyone? This is awesome for gathering around for date night, simple movies and let’s not forget all the sports that your spouse (and possibly you too) will love to watch with family and friends.tv1112 – Technology is key in the 21st century. How about new matching mobile devices, music players or laptops? This makes staying in touch and getting those thank you notes off to your guests easier.  They also have an awesome “Geek Squad”, that can help you with any of your computer related questions. phone11

3 – New appliances may be needed in your new home and how about that washer, drier or stainless steel wine fridge you’ve had your eye on. While these may seem big-ticket items, they are great for “Group Gifting”. What’s that you ask? It allows gift-givers to give any amount they want, so couples can ask for the gifts you really want and not worry about price point. Great for your officemates or bridal party who want to pool funds for your gift.wine22

4 – It’s party time and a new stereo and/or speakers will set your party off right! Music systems will help with amazing surround sound for parties both in and out of your home. Placing your speakers near or via blue tooth, will have your guests enjoying every moment.musicsstem1

5 – I don’t know about you but nothing makes for a great party but awesome food and cocktails. That’s why a microwave, toaster, blender or coffee maker must be on your registry. Fun food just completes your new home and cocktails  or coffee make everything meal perfect all year round.coffee1

Best Buy has a great choice of gifts that will fit any registry request. Remember that all items $199 and over can be considered for their “group gifting” option. This allows you to ask for what you really want, without asking your guests to spend more than they are comfortable with—so dream big. Remember Best Buy Wedding Registry has Free Shipping, No Minimum.  So whatever your “Top Five” products, big or small, expensive or affordable, all ship for free saving your guests money.

So check out Best Buy and take the stress out of your registry planning. Now back to finding the perfect dress….

Best Buy is the best buy for your wedding registry


Planning a wedding can be stressful. Planning your wedding registry shouldn’t be. While there are a lot of places out there that have registries, Best Buy has one that will help you create a great “experience registry”.

Let’s face it most couples are living together before they get hitched. What you’re really looking for is those “slightly hard to find on other registries” items. You know, things that will help keep the spark in your relationship (mood lighting); create an enjoying time with other couples (dinner party) or even capturing those special moments (your honeymoon or other highlights).

Register for game night!  Break out your new TV and Xbox, take the chip-and-dip from your other registry out of the box, and have all your friends over for a dance party or a Call of Duty or Orange is the new Black marathon.

How about that new camera (with great digital to internet ability), to capture your honeymoon? Everyone can use new Bluetooth speakers (for those weekend parties or party on the beach) or how about the perfect extra-large TV (for super bowl with the gang or super-night in, just you and your honey?).

What’s always great – your bridal party or office can “pool” their funds together to get what you want through Group Gifting. This elevates stress and EVERYONE IS HAPPY!

Even if your relatives are miles away, they can send your gift to you, no matter the cost, with Best Buys great FREE SHIPPING. Exchanges, no problem and what you don’t get everything from your guests, you will enjoy a 10% discount so you can buy them yourself.

Get moving with Jawbone Up and BestBuy

Oh the summer was time for sun, fun and yes if I’m honest, lot of relaxation and cocktails.  Of course there was some exercise, because let’s face it, I was heading into New York Fashion Week and it’s hard to face those models feeling…well, less than thin.  Lucky for me, I was given the Jawbone UP from Best Buy to review and what it told me, has helped change my life.jaw

What is this lifesaver, this thing called Jawbone UP? The Jawbone UP tracks your sleep activity, steps, calorie intake, mood and so more.  It gives you these daily insights which share things like, how long you sat idle (gentle hint to get moving), how food was working for or against my goal and my personal favorite, how much I am (or in my case not) sleeping a night. jawbonel2

Unlike a pedometer that you have to clip on, once I programmed it, I slipped it on my wrist and forgot about it. No, I didn’t have to take it off in the shower because it’s water resistant. So there’s no excuse or “I forgot it” moments.  The only time you have to take it off is to charge it and but since it has a 10-day battery charge, it lasts longer than my mobile phone and won’t die on me.jawboneupl

What I was able to find out during New York Fashion Week is that I logged anywhere from 10,200 to 14,101 steps (or 6.48miles) on my busiest day.  It also told me that I wasn’t sleeping much (well, I was on deadline) and my food intake was way off my healthy eating goal! The good thing is that I was at drinking lots …of water.

Now, with all the pros, there were just a few cons. I happen to be one of the few people on the planet that doesn’t have an iPhone. While it is available for android, it didn’t work on my phone. Lucky for me, I did have an iPod, so I was able to download the tracking app, which worked like a dream.  The other thing is you have to remember to turn the “sleep” mode on, when you get into bed for the night.  I forgot one day, and when I plugged into see my stats, it seems like I didn’t sleep at all. Just minor things because everything else was such a benefit. 

Live Better. Start Now. Jawbone UP. Track your sleep activity, steps, calorie intake and more with the Jawbone UP wrist sensor and free mobile app. UP gives you meaningful, personalized insights so you can make lasting improvements to your everyday life.

Truly fashionable, multi-functional and two thumbs up, for Jawbone Up.
