go green

Today's post sponsored by XFINITY, but all opinions are my own. Please see below for additional disclosure.

Nashville is expecting the arrival of Google Fiber later this year, & in the interest of making sure that we have the best option in cable service, my husband & I have been learning more about our current provider, & sharing some feedback about our experience. Check out my first XFINITY review post here.

Ever been locked in a heated battle over what to watch? Our house knows this struggle oh too well - husband has to watch his beloved Portland Trailblazer basketball games & I just want to watch E News! Luckily, as we have been learning more about the features of our system, we no longer have to worry about hogging the remote! I just figured out that we are able to stream every channel live with our current XFINITY system – a crucial feature that I learned Google Fiber doesn’t offer - straight from our devices!

Despite our sometimes very different TV watching preferences, with Cloud technology from X1, we stream channels live to our connected devices (I make him watch on his computer!) so we can both watch what they’d like. On week nights we are both pretty much camped out on the couch - me grading papers & catching up on my guilty pleasure shows, him following along with news/sports. While we may all have different favorite shows, it’s still great to spend time together (with the pugs squished somewhere in the middle). Our living room just became a multi-screen entertainment center!

Google Fiber doesn’t carry this capability, meaning you’re going to have to head to a different room or wait until everyone else is done with the TV to watch your shows. If you love live tweeting (and hate spoilers!) like I do, you’re always going to want to watch live!

To learn more about these & other amazing XFINITY features that we have been testing in our home, head to their live streaming FAQs.

clutch: convertible "Carly" purse c/o Gigi New York (can also be worn as a shoulder/crossbody bag)

shoes: DSW mules (sold out, shop this similar pair for under $100)

sunglasses: Carrera sunglasses c/o Sunglasses Shop

necklace: super old (from when I worked in a boutique during college), but I love how much it looks like this mega expensive version from Oscar de la Renta. If you are looking for a similar resin link necklace I am into this from Neiman Marcus Last Call & this from BaubleBar.
