Yak Pak review and giveaway

When I saw Yak Pak reviewed by a fellow blogger I was so intrigued by the variety of bright, colorful products they offered. They have any thing from bags, dog leashes, to cell phone accessories all very bright and uniquely designed so the colors caught my eye. I was delighted when they agreed to work with me and I couldn't wait to share these products with ya'll.

I was given my choice of a list of products and I liked so many of the products and I could have used  lots of them. The product I chose after a lot of thought was a Mini Speaker for my IPhone.  It took me a long time to choose but this seemed like the natural choice because my family loves music. My children and I dance almost daily and my IPhone is usually the source of the music.  The problem with using the IPhone is the speakers are not that loud and even on highest volume they really don't project enough to hear around a room. We have a set of portable speakers that I could hook to my phone but they require an outlet. So I would have to stop what I'm doing find an open plug and plug them in. Then move them from room to room finding outlets as I go.  I have never wanted that hassle so those speakers stayed plugged in my bedroom and only used while I was in that room.


These Mini speakers are battery operated, extremely light, and very portable. I can plug them into my phone and carry both from room to room enjoying my playlist along the way. They only have an on off switch so the volume is controlled from your phone and as you can see they can stand up and be supported by the little wire piece on the back. I know they are named mini speakers but don't let the size fool you these little things put out lots of sound.  I can play my music in the kitchen and here it clearly in the bedroom without my phone being at max volume. The speakers really saved the speakers on my phone.  My last phone had a blown speaker because I guess my music was a little too loud one day. I can't help my love of music but I can save my phone speakers thanks to YakPak's awesome Mini Speakers.

These speakers are adorable they are pink back and a grey front decorated with colorful heart and I'm so glad they are girly. My husband mentioned they would be great for him to use in the truck since he likes to listen to his phone while driving and he doesn't have an adapter. I told him sure you can use them but they are PINK with little colorful hearts. So guess what, they are all mine, I don't have to worry about him taking them.

Now for the fun part, not that you thought my review wasn't fun, RIGHT? YakPak has generously offered to give one of my readers a product of their choice.
