Enjoy Your Favorite Music With TunesGo Music Downloader

TunesGo Music Downloader

It finally looks like the warm weather is here.  Time to spend most of our days outdoors with family and friends.  Usually, (at least for me) music is always involved.  Nothing like being outside with the summer breeze, eating good food and listening to your favorite music.   Now you can take your favorite music, playlists and videos with you anywhere with the Wondershare TunesGo music downloader.

First of all let me explain, I'm not a technical person at all.  I'm just a mom and wife that loves listening to music anytime of the day.  Music has been a part of and shaped my life for many decades.  I'm here to explain my experience and the features of Wondershare TunesGo music downloader.


With the Wondershare TunesGo music downloader you can download music and playlists directly from TunesGo. Also you can download music and videos from 10,000+ sites including YouTube, Spotify, Soundcloud, Vevo, Dailymotion, Vimeo!

My family and I were traveling recently and we stayed at a hotel with horrible wifi.  It would have been nice to have some music or videos already downloaded to my tablet.  Wondershare TunesGo is very easy to use and to install.   Even someone like me who hasn't ever used a music downloader at all can do it. 

You can transfer your music between devices.  Transfer all of your iTunes media files to your android device.  This includes not only music and playlists, but movies and TV shows.  This would have come in handy for me when I was stuck in that hotel room with my kids watching cartoons because the hotel had such bad wifi.

TunesGo Music Downloader

You can discover playlists from music sites like Spotify.  I have spent a lot of time this weekend listening and downloading some great playlists.  A few of my favorites are Motivation Mix for when I'm working. 80s Smash Hits has some wonderful tracks that brings back many memories.  And Weekend Hangout was an excellent choice for spending the evening with friends in our backyard.

I love YouTube.  I'm watching something on it various times of the day.  Mostly I use it to watch movies and workout videos.  When I found out I could use Wondershare TunesGo music downloader to download videos from YouTube, I was extremely happy.  So I can create a workout playlist and take it with me anywhere. 

You can also use the Wondershare TunesGo music downloader to record from streaming online music, online radio, or from any source on your PC or Mac.  Wondershare TunesGo intelligently filters out any ads and splits tracks automatically.

Are you ready to discover, listen and share great music with Wondershare the new TunesGo 8.0 music downloader with improved interface and functions?! You can try it for free.  To find out more you can connect with TunesGo on Facebook and Twitter.

TunesGo frees your music!

Disclaimer:  I was asked to review Wondershare TunesGo.  I received compensation for this review, but I was under no obligation to write a positive review.  The opinions are my own and results may vary.

I know what makes people tick.  I have a certificate in Social Media Management from Social Media Manager School and I have taken courses in social media marketing, PR and content writing.

I really enjoy working with brands/small companies promoting their products with my blog. My favorite social media platforms are Twitter and Instagram. 

I have evolved from just blogging to social media marketing. I find joy in creating a marketing strategy and implementing it on social media.  For me social media marketing isn't work, it's art. It's my creative outlet.

    Rachel's Day in the Garden-Yoga For Kids

    Yoga For Kids


    I remember when my son was a baby he would watch me doing Yoga and try to imitate me.  His downward dog was so cute and funny.  Then when he was a toddler his teacher taught his class Yoga.  They would do Yoga right before nap time.

    Benefits of yoga for kids:
    ·        increases strength and flexibility
    ·        helps them relax, unwind, and calm down to reduce stress and anxiety
    ·        helps them sleep better
    ·        promotes interaction between adult and child, and between multiple children
    ·        improves their fine and gross motor skills, as well as their coordination
    ·        develops self-confidence, self-expression, and body awareness
    ·        promotes a healthy, active lifestyle

    Yoga for kids

    My son is now 11 years old and taller than me.  So, I asked my 9 year old daughter to give me a quick review of  Rachel's Day in the Garden.  She said she loved the pictures and enjoyed trying to do the different Yoga poses. I agreed with my daughter.  I loved the illustrations and I think this is a fun book to introduce children to Yoga.

    Chicago is my Favorite City in the World

    Chicago-The Bean
    Cloudgate aka The Bean

    Yes, Chicago is my favorite city in the world.  I have lived in Brooklyn, NY, Cambridge, England, Vancouver, Canada and now we are in Toronto.  I grew up and lived in Chicago for 40 years of my life.

    Beautiful Skyline

    No matter where we live, we must visit Chicago at least once a year.  That is the deal I made with my husband.  He gets to live outside of Chicago and I get to go home during the summer for several weeks to visit.

    Yes, when I'm in Chicago, I feel energized and relaxed at the same time.  We spent Easter weekend there this year.

    We stayed at the Palmer House Hotel.  The Palmer House has been in downtown Chicago for decades.  As a native Chicagoan, I have always wanted to stay there.  The Palmer House has a beautiful lobby and dining area, but the room we stayed in definitely needed renovation.  But I can now cross it off my bucket list.

    We had a a couple of must-sees while in Chicago. The first was The Greeks exhibit at The Field Museum.  We've been trying to see this exhibition for a while in other cities, but just couldn't make it.  We decided that we couldn't miss this chance and finally got to see it in Chicago.

    We learned quite a lot about ancient Greece and got to see some beautiful artifacts. So glad we had the opportunity to see it!

    Then we met up with my parents. We ate lunch at Macy's and then attended the flower show.

    The next day we went to the Van Gogh's Bedrooms exhibit at The Art Institute of Chicago.  The exhibit was fantastic and gave us a look into the one of the most famous bedrooms of all-time and why it was so special to Van Gogh. The Van Gogh's Bedrooms exhibit runs through May 10, 2016.

    This was a short trip and we didn't get to some of my favorite restaurants this time.  We didn't even get any deep dish pizza! *gasp* But, we'll be back in August and I have plans to visit all of my favorites then.  Until then here are some of my previous blog posts about my favorite restaurants in Chicago!
