Ordered This Cake and Ate It Too Thanks to My Mophie

Posted in Gear by


It is not very often that I get to have a leisurely lunch with my BFF. She, in addition to being the best best friend in the world, is Mom of three, Step Mom of five, a real estate agent, a beautician, a Soccer Mom to an elite player who travels extensively, and an active member of her church. So when we are able to plan a couple hours for a lunch get together, it is usually for my birthday or hers. I know you Mamas know this well, always difficult to make time to do things that are just for you.




We were just seated and perusing the menu when my friend got a real estate call and immediately looked distressed. “My phone is dying,” she mouthed and got up to leave – important call and I guessed she was going to have to go out to her car and try to revive her phone. Sadly, I picked up my purse to join her and reached in for some lip gloss (my favorite Pure Illumination – given to me by none other than my BFF because she can shop beauty supply but seriously order this gloss online – the link is to Amazon where you can purchase – it has a mirror on the side AND it lights up so you apply perfectly!) and see my Mophie.

I stop my friend, whisper that I can charge her phone and back she sits with a big smile. We return to the menu, Mophie portable phone charger extraordinaire doing its job, and me ordering for both of us.




My BFF wraps up her business, food comes, lunch saved. Okay, I ordered us breakfast because that is what I do but, yum and yum. The main thing is that we can talk and laugh and enjoy and that a dying cell phone needed for one work call didn’t derail our coveted and infrequent quality time together.




And after breakfast, chocolate cake. And with a cherry on top. Just what the birthday girl ordered.

Special thank you to Verizon for sharing the much used and loved Mophie with me. Click here to find a Mophie that is right for your family.

      It sure was – and all because my Mophie cell phone charger saved the day! Have you tried a portable charger yet? I had a different one but it took forever for it to charge and it would never fully charge my phone. My Mophie charged my Verizon iPhone + my son’s 3DS with charge to spare! We heart it!

    Reading the Fall 2016 hard copy issue and trying to follow the instructions to enter to win $75 gift card to Melting Pot. Not sure if I’m in the right spot. Chocolate cake in the pick looks fantastic!

      Agreed! I got a really cute phone charger that came with my even cuter phone case, but it is really really, takes super long to charge itself and won’t even come close to giving my phone a full charge.

      The Mophie charged my phone and my son’s 3DS no problem with charge to spare. I take a ton of HDR photos and videos + my son plays Pokemon Go (okay, so I caught a Ponyta all by myself after getting my hair cut over at Dolce in Chandler) so we are always in need a charge and the Mophie always comes through!

    I don’t often find myself somewhere that I have a super low charge, but when I do need to charge it while I’m out the one I have hooked up in my car is sooo slow. We have Verizon so I’ll have to look into this one.

      I get that, once you desperately need the charge, the car charger seems not to be able to give it you😐. For sure check it out since you have Verizon and if you ever are going to need a charger (long camping trip, vacation where you want to take a ton of video), I’d recommend Mophie.

      Also, if you ever go in for a really really long lunch with your best friend, it can come in handy.

    I recently bought a portable charger for my husband for his hunting escapades but maybe I should look into this for myself!

      You are so thoughtful – bet your husband appreciated the charger. For sure if you are out and about a lot and take a lot of videos and photos the portable phone chargers – especially the powerful ones like the Mophie are a must!

    We have 3 of them. Haha. We use them when we go camping. I get nervous if our cells would die and we might need them in an emergency.

      You are SO smart, love that you are so prepared. It is an emergency in my house when we are trying to capture an elusive Pokemon and the phone is in the red and losing charge fast!

    I need one! Or 4 actually!! First off Pokemon go is killing my battery life. Second, I only have 1 wall charger and it’s silly carrying it around. Off to shop!

    With all the pokemon hunting we do these days for the kids, it would be great to be able to recharge on the go and keep hunting!

    We have other portable chargers, but they always seem to get lost. This looks like a good size to hopefully not 🙂

    I think having a Mophie would be great for anyone to have. There is nothing worse than having your phone die when you are away from home.

    This would be a great birthday gift for my hubby. He is always out for long periods with his phone and could use a portable charger!

    A Mophie would be awesome! My iPhone’s battery is defective (but of course not recalled) and loses a charge super quick. What a great product!
