Sol Republic PUNK Wireless Speaker Giveaway
Music is always playing in our house. We love to take the music with us and sometimes doing so with Pandora on our computers can be cumbersome. So a few years ago I bought my husband a portable speaker. It served its purpose, but it could not stand up to being next to our pool, the kids, and being trucked around everywhere. The speaker lacked personality and the rugged feel it needed for being an “on the go” portable speaker. We needed something to withstand the kids, my husband, and being taken by our pool and around the house. Until we found PUNK Wireless speaker from Sol Republic.
Founded by consumer electronics veterans whose sole purpose was to rid the world of hollow sounding music. PUNK is everything but hollow or weak when delivering premium sound for listening.
We opened our PUNK from Sol Republic to listen to music on Thanksgiving Day. I had no idea what to expect or what sound we would hear from this palm sized device. What we do know is that the music pumping out was rocking. Did we mention theÂ music is linked through blue tooth? My husband could be on one end of the house with this phone while the music was still playing on the opposite. No packet loss with the streaming, no scratching or struggles to play the music clearly and with tons of attitude.
Our guests on Thanksgiving Day were absolutely amazed at this little wonder. First were the questions about what it was. The color is tremendously bright and attractive, the skin is smooth, rugged and grippy all at the same time, a sporty skin that can handle water, drops, and some dirt. PUNK is light but sturdy, emitting unbelievable sound that doesn’t compromise your music. Next the questions were how it works, where can it go, how easy was it to use. Needless to say we had plenty of fodder for this gem of a wireless speaker.
We talked about what a great gift this is for anyone in the family because of the versatility. No blue tooth? No problem, there is wire connectivity to jack your sound from PUNK to your device to a home stereo. What about size? The PUNK can go anywhere with you. In your purse, pocket, backpack, or just carry in your hand. PUNK goes where you go.
The most important question is where you can go to buy PUNK and take it with you? Find PUNK Sol Republic blue tooth speaker at any Best Buy or directly from the Sol Republic site. Stay up to date on all the news, fashion, and events on all their social media channels as well! Or, you can enter to win your very own PUNK wireless blue tooth speaker from Sol Republic and see for yourself what all the raving is about.

Did you have the same old boring Thanksgiving? How about the same old boring turkey sandwiches following Thanksgiving from all the leftovers? Well why not kick up your holidays, your sandwiches, your meals altogether? Or do you have a foodie or chef extraordinaire in your family for your gift giving? I know personally I have an aunt who is an amazing chef, needless to say I think I inherited my cooking gifts from her and my grandmother, and she is always on the lookout for fabulous foods.
So I know I would love to gift to her some eccentric gifts and foods for everyone to enjoy with her creations. One year I made her a rhubarb chutney, another some black eyed peas and this year I would love to gift her some jenkins jellies hell fire pepper jelly. I was skeptical at first, as with any foodie as to what exactly the consistency and taste would yield on my palate. Surprisingly enough the jelly is amazing!
A burn to the mouth and tongue for sweet to the taste is this amazing delicacy married from the harvesting of fresh peppers and sweet jelly. More over the jelly is made with organic ingredients, no preservatives or artificial colors. The packaging is delectable, with a traditional jelly jar, simple sticker affixed to the front with the quaint rope to fasten the jelly spoon to the side of the jar. A wonderful gift of food that keeps on giving for so many different options for food. We actually had Jenkins Jelly on our turkey meatloaf the other night and boy howdy, this really got my southwestern taste and passion for spice. I could taste the peppers and a bit of habanero or jalapeno, it was awesome to feel the burn and the sweet all at once. But the flavor was piquant enough to fill the senses without the numbing burn from the pepper. The flavor would be wonderful on some southwestern, jalapeno cheddar bisquits that I love to make with my turkey chili.
Now if you really want the proof in the pudding…or in this case the jelly, Hell Fire Pepper Jelly has already received celebrity recognition from Chef Mario Batali, actor Ed Begley, Jr. and actress/cousin Gwyneth Paltrow. In addition to the celebrity endorsement is the philanthropy attached to jenkins jellies which is always a plus for The Fish Family since we love to help our world and community where we can, a percentage of jenkins jelliesâ€™ profits go to the Bruce Paltrow Oral Cancer Fund and Green Wish.
Some back history about Jenkins Jellies:
After buying a home in Highland Park with an abundance of fruit trees, L.A. actress Hillary Danner planted a vegetable garden and began making jelly. A family friend encouraged her to create a unique pepper jelly with an extra kick.
Always up for a challenge, Hillary joined with her longtime friends Maria Newman and Chef Jared Levy to do just that. Organically growing a variety of peppers in Hillaryâ€™s backyard, she created a jelly with the perfect balance of where sweet meets heat.Â The end result was their first product: Locally produced, gourmet and handcrafted Hell Fire Pepper Jelly.
Available for purchase online at www.jenkinsjellies.com or at select Dean & DeLuca locations across the country for an SRP of $12 per 11.9 oz jar and $8 for a 4.8oz jar. Sure to be a chef’s favorite as a stocking stuffer or a foodies gift of taste, Jenkins Jellies is sure to be an affordable and delicious gift to enjoy past the holiday season.
