Mother's Day Gift Guide: Hot & Sexy New Jawbone ICON Bluetooth Review and Giveaway

Congrats Melanie Bleile Being a mom shouldn't have to be boring.  Jawbone offers a hand-free bluetooth that allows moms to look good while multi-tasking.  I actually had the old Jawbone and was really excited to try the new, stylish version.  I was pleasantly surprised. 
I decided to test out The Bombshell.  The feature upgrades on the new Jawbone ICON were very impressive.  One of the major flaws with the old version were the buttons.  With the old Jawbone syncing and turning it on/off were some times challenging for me; however, the new Jawbone ICON is as easy as pie.  You sync it once...that's it.  It has a tiny switch that turns it on and off.  When you turn it on it automatically syncs.  It even talks to you!  Mine says, "I'm on and ready to go" in a sexy voice I choose using the beta version of MyTalk where you can choose the personality that fits your style.  Yep, can you believe there are AudioApps for your hands-free bluetooth?  How cool is that?!  It even tells me, when prompted, "You have 4 hours of talk time left" -- yep, fully charged I can talk for up to 4 hours.  AMAZING!

I'm a busy person.  I have up to 10 projects I'm working on at any given time.  I have two kids and a husband that can be pretty needy at times.  I don't have time to hold a phone and make dinner, wash dishes, make blog posts, snuggle with my son...you get the point.  My house is LOUD...very loud and conducting business by phone is some times a challenge.  I decided to put the Jawbone ICON to the true test, the NoiseAssassin 2.5 which is supposed to block out background noise - including wind.  For those of you who know me, my husband has been blasting his Call of Duty PS3 game through the home speakers system for the past month.  It is super annoying, but I'll save that for another post.  Anyway, I stood in front of the TV last week and had an entire conversation with my mom.  She never heard the TV at all.  Now that is 2 thumbs up from this mom!

So, with Mother's Day right around the corner Jawbone wants to give you a chance to win your very own Jawbone ICON!
