Have you ever thought to yourself while you are reading an email… “I would really like this EMAIL to be magically UNREAD at some point later on in my life and re-sent back to me just so I can read it again”?
This could be anything from a reminder to yourself to buy that extra apple at the grocery store, a notice of your eviction date from your tech savvy landlord, a letter from the Nigerian prince you built a deep connection via online communication and wanted to follow up on, a bill reminder from Mint.com, to an email newsletter from me with great important tips you’d like to revisit…….. It could be anything in the world.
But the reality of life dawns on you: once something is “marked as read”, you will never revisit it. It will be lost the oblivion of your inbox and you are absolutely helpless to remind yourself unless you take the desperate measures of physical sticky notes or alarm clock notices.
WELL SAY NO MORE.
You now have Boomerang. Boomerang is ingenious because it can tie itself to a couple of the most wildly used mail applications – gmail and outlook. Surprisingly the version for gmail is a separate company than the outlook one.
The outlook one has a $29.95 one time fee while the gmail boomerang has different tiers ranging from free to $14.99/month.

In other news my friend Christina Hsu:
is an entrepreneur how is founder of Flower Child Hair. They make “hair accessories for the free spirited female who dares to indulge in her whimsical side”. Already a sell out success, she hopes to make more available in the future for the public.
Cray Cray! Yes, I am allowed to say such things. I totally support fellow entrepreneurs in their endeavors and I think this style is simplistic but incredibly well placed for the season *SUMMER*.
