#MelAndNikkiReview

We absolutely love this tablet and Nikki has loved it so much that it hasn’t left her side since we received it.

Our reviews are authentic and real; therefore, we spent a good two weeks to get to know the tablet and see how it truly can benefit our readers. We are delighted to share our top six reasons why we love the Leap Frog Epic™ Academy.

  1. It provides hours of educational fun and all their learning apps and games are educator-approved.
  2. It is kid friendly and safe. As a parent, I want to make sure that what she is playing and viewing is appropriate for her age. Also am relieved to know that items can not be purchased online without a parent’s review.
  3. It is durable! I can’t tell you how many times items are dropped especially tablets. We love how LeapFrog has us in mind and has already equipped the tablet with a safe protective case – thank you!
  4. Travel friendly. We love how we can take the tablet wherever we go and many of the games do not need Wi-Fi. These comes in handy for long car rides especially in the summer. Entertainment and Learning on the go is what we say! 😉
  5. Battery life is phenomenal as it lasts 7+ hours! This doesn’t mean they should be on the tablet for that long but it is comforting to know that you don’t need to keep charging the tablet a few hours later.
  6. Easy set up! I don’t know about most parents but I do like easy set-ups. Ones that don’t take too long to do especially when your child is eagerly waiting to use it! 🙂

This will be our favorite technology piece to use this summer as it will keep Nikki’s mind active while school is out. It will keep the skills that she has learned in the first year of school growing with a simple touch of a screen. Therefore, for this #MelAndNikkiReview, we give the Leap Frog Epic™ Academy 10 Leaps out of 5! We do recommend it! An added bonus is that LeapFrog offers the LeapFrog Academy FREE for three months. The Academy offers a step-by-step learning program that automatically responds to each child. A must try if you are purchasing this amazing tablet!

Giving Each Event its Own Unique ID with Inspired Designs

This month’s “Mom of the Month” is an inspiring graphic designer for just over ten years. She also enjoys making and building things. She is humble to say that she can’t draw to save her life, but has a creative side in many other ways.

This rings true as soon as you see the beautiful creations done by Marissa at ID Inspired Designs who is our Mom of the Month.

I had the opportunity to connect with Marissa to get to know more about this great mom and her company.

  1. What does your company do?

We design, print and execute custom paper products for all occasions, such as invitations, loot bags, favor tags, posters, banners and a lot more. We also design, print and execute paper products for businesses, this is secondary though.

  1. When did you start your business?

I started this business about eight years ago.

  1. How did you come up with the idea?

I designed invitations and paper products for occasions in my life and I had many friends and family members who wanted me to do the same for them. With each job came another referral and before I knew it, I was a full blown business.

  1. How did you come up with the business name?

ID is short for identity as I feel everything such as an event and business should have its own unique identity. Inspired Designs came to me since it is my clients who inspire and challenge me to bring their designs to life.

  1. What do you hope your business accomplishes?

To be able to execute every clients design to the way they picture it. I want to be able to reflect what they see in their minds to their eyes.

  1. Where would you like to see your business in 5 years?

I would love to be doing this full time, to have a dedicated work space and be able to spend all my work time executing what makes my heart sing.

  1. As a busy working mom, how do you find the time to balance it all?

Marissa stated that she sadly does not think she does this very well as she works full time and in her spare time is when she executes designs for her clients. However, I know that even with her busy schedule she still finds time to spend it with her loving son. They even have mom and son dates where they do something fun together outside of the home. So in my books she balances it really well and is humble about it.

  1. Lastly, how can people connect with you if they are interested in ordering from you?

Interested clients can email me or connect with me on our Facebook page.

When I asked Marissa what else she would like our readers to know, she stated, “We can work with any idea and any budget. I love to be challenged and I really do love what I do.”

Momma Braga is extremely proud to feature Marissa of ID Inspired Designs as this month’s “Mom of the Month” as she is such a humble, kind and extremely talented.
