Check Out Holiday Toyland at Your Local Walmart! #ChosenByKids

There are only 85 days until Christmas. Who’s counting, you ask? Well, I am, for one. I LOVE the holidays and everything it brings along with it. The magic of Christmas in NYC is everything you see in movies. That warm pretzel on a cold winter day. The sights to see in the big city. Oh, […]

Learning About Values With Barbie and The Secret Door #BarbieSecretDoor #sponsored #MC

With two daughters, my home is “everything girlie.” Pink, purple, glitter and a ton of tutus is what my girls are about, and nothing says “girlie” more than Barbie! My oldest daughter has been into Barbie for a few years now, but lately she’s found videos on YouTube with Barbie and the Pearl Princess and […]

Smoothing things out with #AvedaNaturallyStraight @SheSpeaksUp @Aveda

My hair has changed so much over the years. Between hormonal changes and all the fun stuff that adulthood brings, my hair has gone through as many phases of change as I have. My hair is thick and tends to get frizzy, although it is not overly curly. If I could have manageable hair every […]

Shop at Family Dollar for all your Game Day needs & Enter to win a prize pack!

Hubby: “Do you know what today is?” 5 year old: “Family Day!” Hubby: “Yes, AND football Sunday!” Last weekend my hubby woke up, donned his Jets t-shirt and hat, and headed to the market to pick up some game day finger foods. I guess you can say I’m a football widow, a baseball widow, and […]

Zappos Makes It Easy to Shop For Everyone on Your List! #ZapposStyle #MC #sponsored

A few weeks ago I told you about my shopping habits and how I prefer to shop online. There is something about avoiding lines, not dealing with traffic, and being in the comfort of my home when I shop that appeals to me. I feel that I can easily browse through items in various categories […]

We Made Health-ier Brownies With #MonkFruitInTheRaw @InTheRawBrand #MC #sponsored

My kids, although picky, are pretty good eaters. They love their fruits and veggies, but they also love their sweets. I try to cut sugar intake whenever possible, and I always manage to sneak veggies into the foods they do love. I’m not a fan of artificial sweeteners when it comes to my kids, but […]

Check out the Lola’s World app By @Lola_Panda for hours of fun and education!

Finding age appropriate apps for iOS devices isn’t really that difficult, but finding educational apps that actually hold my daughters’ attention can sometimes be a challenge. When I found out about Lola’s World, I was happy that it was something both my girls would be able to play, since it has an age range of […]

Paul Frank Sets Us Off On The Right Foot for School!

Julius Jr is quickly becoming popular amongst children ever since the show started airing on TV. My girls immediately fell in love with the adorable monkey with bold features, and are attracted to anything Julius Jr when we go shopping in the stores. I can’t complain- he’s a fun-loving character that teaches kids how to get along with others and […]

Check out The Boxtrolls Events At a Location Near You! #TheBoxtrolls

The Boxtrolls are almost here and I think it is one of this year’s most anticipated films (or at least in my home it is!) It looks like such a fun movie with a positive message about acceptance, and who can resist some good old fashion stopmotion animation? I love the creativity that goes into […]
