WHO KNOWS ME BETTER: Boyfriend vs Best Friends Trivia Game!

I sat down with my two best friends ( and Sally Chen) and with my boyfriend (Addison Chen)! Michelle has been friends with me since high school (over 11 years now), Sally has been friends with me since college (over 8 years), and Addison an I have been together for over 4 years. Each come with a different perspective on our relationships with each other as people grow and develop, and while I wanted to do this in person, Addison and I did get COVID19 during the December 2021 holiday break, so we had to do this virtually instead!

Which NFC Smart Business Card is best for you? (Ovou vs. Dot vs. Linq vs. Taptok vs. Covve)

When I first heard about NFC smart business cards, I started seeing Instagram ads all over the place about Ovou, Dot, Linq, Taptok, and Covve. Thankfully, many of them have agreed to send over their cards to me or I purchased them to try it out myself and see what I thought for myself! I reviewed them with four criteria which is on 1. the physical item itself, 2. the user interface of the profile when you tap them with an NFC enabled device, 3. the user experience of working with the profile and the onboarding process, and 4. value for your money. I also tell you who each card is for and if you should buy it!

I TRIED SEATED FOR A DAY (and how it works): Dining In & Ordering Delivery in NYC… I made $30!

I’ve tried the dining and restaurant rewards app Seated for about 4 months now, and I can’t believe I haven’t been on it earlier! I can get money back from eating at restaurants or by ordering food for pickup or delivery, so I wanted to show everyone the process so you can learn how it works too. Especially when in New York City, there’s so many options near me, why wouldn’t I take advantage of it? This is not a sponsored video, but I wish it was because it’s such a cool app!

I try Seated for a whole day to show you the process when it comes to exploring and finding places to eat, the booking or ordering process, the receipt validation process, and even redeeming for rewards. It is all so easy, and you can do this too!

Use my referral link so you can get $50, and I will get $50 after your first meal! It’s a win-win! Get your $50 now:
