Could you use a new laptop? Today it’s about Intel, and how you have a chance to WIN an Intel Laptop!  My current laptop just turned 3 years old, and is holding steady, but I know the day will come soon that I will most likely need to get a new one. The Acer makes for an excellent option and the features that the Acer 11.6″ Aspire R-11 2 in 1 Laptop has are amazing! The Acer conveniently has 4 modes; Notebook, Display, Tent and Tablet. These modes would make work and play a breeze no matter where I am at. Did you know that these Intel laptops are available at Walmart?

What are your #SleepEmotions? I LOVE sleep, and I share Joy’s happiness when I get to sleep in, or catch up on some sleep.

Sleep plays a big role in all aspects of life, not just physically, but also emotionally; and our emotions shouldn’t get in the way of a great night’s rest.
