These companies have allowed me to review their products.

A new semester awaits! Spring semester starts in January (odd, I know), and since Christmas is right there with it, I found a few items that I am thankful for this year that will work with/for any student.

 

4EurSole

This wonderful product actually made 2 lists for us! I loved it so much, I included it in College Bound & Gifts That Keep On Giving.

Comfort, style and did I mention comfort?! I have dreamed of getting a pair of 4EurSole shoes for years. I knew one day I would have myself a pair and now I have 2! My 1st pair I asked for,  for nursing school, a white leather clog. Thanks to 4EurSole’s comfort features, these shoes are perfect for dynamic women who spend the day on their feet. Memory foam provides instant comfort and, over time, forms to the shape of your foot. A soft, anti-microbial lining covers an EVA footbed. A dual-density polyurethane midsole has a shock-absorbing heel and forefoot padding. Unlike traditional clogs, the shoes cradle your heel for non-slip comfort. These convertible clogs have an innovative three-part system that lets you instantly create a new look. Swap two insoles for three choices: fullback, open back and slingback. The 4EurSole PetalTrax slip-resistant rubber outsole has a proprietary compound for long-lasting durability. 

When my shoes arrived though, I was super surprised to see the 4Ever Women’s Metalic Blue Harbor Slip-On included. I actually did not know the color was blue because its a color changing metalic. In some lights, it looks green, black, purple and blue. I absolutely love them. 

4EurSole is designed for women who are dynamic, performance-driven and always on the go. Women like you, with daily commitments to family, clients, customers, patients, and friends. For the special things you do, you need footwear that supports your feet with all-day comfort, durability and slip resistance and supports your goals with great styling and versatility. 4EurSole gives you all of this because 4EurSole is Fit for a Greater Purpose.

I am beyond thrilled with 4EurSole shoes. I can’t wait to start this next semester and not be worried about my feet hurting. Use code 4ESOCS6DN for 15% off your next 4EurSole order!

Toshiba

The biggest item that most college kids need is a quality computer. One that will be fast, have every port they need, be able to download 50 different programs and be able to update their social media accounts all at the same time. Oh, and be affordable!

That brings us to the Toshiba Tecra Z50. With this super thin and light (just 4.61 pounds) laptop, you can see more on the 15.6″ non-reflective screen, do more with powerful processor – and achieve more using full-size ports. With a clean design and long-lasting battery, it can easily be used for all-day productivity. Whether you’re sharing a presentation or populating a spreadsheet, the Tecra Z50 is ultra-responsive and performs at speed. Plus energy star certified. Core i5 7300U / 2.6 GHz

  • Win 10 Pro
  • 8 GB RAM
  • 256 GB SSD
  • 15.6″ 1920 x 1080 (Full HD)
  • HD Graphics 620
  • Wi-Fi

 

Starting with the screen, (diagonal widescreen) the Tecra z50 can produce resolution up to Full HD (1920 x 1080 pixels) that supports 1080p quality content. For storage, the Tecra Z50 has a Solid State Drive (SSD) with data storage space that has a large capacity of 256 GB. WebCam with TruTalk and Dual Microphones and Bluetooth are also included. As for the power, Toshiba Tecra Z50 (D1552) Laptop has provided a Lithium-ion type battery (4-cell 45 Wh PA5247U-1BRS). Then the Tecra z50 laptop has also been supported Security and Protection, such as Trusted Platform Module (TPM v2.0), Fingerprint Reader, Reinforced Security Cable Lock Slot, HALT Tested Design, LCD Cover Face, and Point Resistant Pressure Design. Not only that, the Toshiba Tecra z50 laptop has also been Registered EPEAT Gold (EPEAT Gold is the highest rating of a recognized environmental product assessment apparatus that measures products in 51 different dimensions).

Just in case you need to type in a dim lit room, you can use your Premium Spill-Resistant Raised Tile Backlit Keyboard with 10-key Numeric Pad. In addition, there are also some ports & connectors that have been provided on the left and right side of Toshiba Tecra z50 laptop, between 4 x USB 3.0 ports (supporting USB Sleep and Charge), HDMI, RGB port, Docking Connector, SD Card Reader (Secure Digital, Secure Digital High Capacity), and 1 x Microphone-in / Headphone-out jack. Then on the top of this Tecra z50 keyboard, has been installed Stereo Speakers from DTS Studio Sound

The Tecra Z50 is available on various websites between $1000-$1400. I am thrilled with this laptop so far! I love how wide the screen is, and I missed having the numeric pad. Toshiba has been a lifelong brand within our family and it will continue to be while continuing my education. 

 

Epson

Epson Workforce ET-4750 EcoTank is one of my TOP FAVORITES this year! It’s seriously the perfect all-in-one printing solution for any work-from-home or college student, offering revolutionary cartridge-free printing with easy-to-fill, supersized ink tanks with up to two years of ink in the box. Did you just read that correct? Yes, TWO YEARS. That’s an incredible amount of ink – enough to print up to 11,200 pages, and equivalent to about 30 ink cartridge sets. Plus, it features auto-stop ink bottles with each color uniquely keyed for easy filling of each tank. And, you save up to 80 percent on ink with low-cost replacement bottles. The ET-4750 also offers a high-capacity 250-sheet paper tray, fax, 2.4″ color touchscreen, 30-sheet ADF, fast auto 2-sided printing, and convenient wired and wireless networking.

Working from home, having children and being a college student, this is absolutely a MUST HAVE. I love the idea of the ink lasting 2 years (depending on printing needs of course). Plus is an all in one, saves me money on faxing, copying and printing. Take a closer look at the Epson Workforce ET-4750 EcoTank for yourself. Once you try it, you will never want another printer again!

 

Wacom

From aspiring teens to NYC designers, Wacom brand products can reach every home. Designers around the world depend on Wacom products to help them work smart, faster and realize their vision. No matter what your discipline, from fashion to graphic to product design, Wacom’s pressure-sensitive pen displays, and pens tablets will be your design.

Some of the ways Wacom products work for you are:  Digital sketch, illustration, comic & manga, animation, 3D sculpting, Graphic design, fashion & product design, Photo fun, image editing, professional results, video & motion graphics, Annotation, collaboration, doodling, and note-taking. The possibilities are endless!

Wondering how Wacom products work? Starting with the basic model, an Intuos Draw,  digital art couldn’t be easier with an Intuos pen tablet. The comfortable, pressure-sensitive pen makes drawing and painting feel natural, just like pen on paper. The Intuos Draw comes with ArtRage Lite software to give you exactly what you need to draw, sketch and paint. Just plug in your tablet, register and download the free industry-leading software. With Intuos, you can share your art with the world. Post online, print on paper or canvas to display your work in a variety of ways.

With models ranging from $80-$3000, there is a Wacom tablet for everyone. This is a great gift for a child showing interest in drawing to the college student. It is easy to set up and even easier to use. I highly recommend Wacom for your Christmas list.
