Hartz Dog Snack #Giveaway 12-pack of Delectables Stew Lickable Treats

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.



At my oldest son's house it is no surprise to walk in and find a new pet. They take in the pets until they find forever homes, and sometimes they fall in love with and keep the pets too. To date, they have two dogs and a cat.

My Cuisinart ViewPro Glass Toaster is See-Through and I Love It!


It's the little things right? When we moved into our new place, the one thing I wanted to get was a see-through toaster. I don't know why, I just think they're cool. That being said, I wanted to make sure that the brand of it was a quality one, so that my investment would be a lasting one, and not just a fly-by-night idea that would come and go. I chose the Cuisinart ViewPro Glass 2-Slice Toaster. The brand quality (Cuisinart has been around forever!) and the cool visibility feature of the toaster would have been reasons enough for me to love our new toaster, but...it gets better.

Important Considerations when Choosing a College Preparatory School

Where he goes to school matters to me... a lot.

Every parent wants their kids to have the best opportunities in life and the best chances to achieve their full potential. To give kids the best prospects for reaching these goals, many parents consider a college preparatory school at high school age or earlier. Putting a child through a high quality college prep school provides a huge opportunity for parents to genuinely make a difference in their child's life.

#ffbamd I Think Everyone Would Agree: Helping Prevent Blindness is a Very Big Deal!


The Foundation Fighting Blindness, a non-profit organization that has been researching cures for blindness, specifically AMD, since 1971, has been able to stop or reduce blindness, which is great news for people over 55 and their families. While that is all well and good (boy is it!), they are still looking for ways to to continue their outreach, research and find cures.

It's easy to see those are bath bombs on the left (detoxifying Double Butter Bath Melts with Tea Tree Oil and Orange, to be exact) but is that candy on the right? Nope! It's a Guilt-Free Cocoa Butter Bar that you also use in your bath. You can use the Tea Tree and Sweet Orange bath melts for an indulgent and very fizzy bath session, or immerse yourself in the luxurious scent of the cocoa butter as it slowly melts around you in the tub. The former is invigorating. The latter is relaxing, and it softens and moisturizes your skin, while also smelling delightfully rich and fulfilling.

Air Pogo Anyone? GeoSpace Toys


The Jumparoo Air Pogo Jumper (sold at GeoSpace) is one of those toys everyone wants to play with, regardless of the suggested weight limit (wait, can I say that on here??). I know this because my granddaughter who is almost preschool-aged, likes it. My son who is in elementary school likes it, my grown kids like it, and I like it (though please note it is recommended up to age 13 only). ;) It's one of those irresistible forces that calls you to it when you see it sitting out. Why? I guess because it's unique and familiar all at the same time, and it looks like most anyone could do it with a little practice (and they can!).

British Soccer Camp this Summer?

 

My son likes being on a soccer team. It's a big deal to him, and in addition to camaraderie, skills, and teaching him to be a team player, it also helps to bolster his self-esteem. It's also a good way to get him out of the house and moving. If he could attend a soccer camp, I'm sure he would love it. If you feel the same, check out the locations for the following camp and see if one will be in your area. There are four located here in Palm Beach County, and so many more located all over the country! British Soccer Camps are the most popular soccer camp in the US!
Take a look and see if there is one located near you!

Get Your Ticket Discount Here! Brick Fest LIVE! LEGO Fan Experience


A few years back, my son went to one of these events, and he had a really good time. Now it's coming to our area again, and while he won't be able to attend this particular event (camp commitment), it is something I know he would LOVE, and so I wanted to share the information with those in the area, who might want some insight on the event. The kids love it, so I say if you get the chance, do go!

Happy Easter



One of my most favorite holidays of the year. We got to see the Sun Rise Service this morning. It was a beautiful way to start the day. We were grateful. Wishing you a wonderful Easter!

Manhattan Toy has a High Quality Wood Mio Food Truck that You are Going to Love!

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.



If you are going to spend money on a toy, why not make it one that is going to last for generations? The Mio Food Truck is perfect! Made of wood, this vehicle is going to be around for awhile, and a big hurrah for it!  Kids will love using their imagination with this one, and parents will love the thoughtful considerations that went into it's making.

#DreamWorksTrolls #GoodyHairDay Fill Their Baskets with Goody!


With such a fun array of Goody items available, I had to take some and put them in the Easter baskets. From traditional ouchless hair elastics, to multi-colored headwraps and more, Goody has something for everyone. For the record, that no-tears hairbrush you see in the picture above, isn't going anywhere, but here. I've never come across a brush so soft and gentle on wet hair (ouchless FlexGlide bristles)! I'd like to say I'm keeping it for the kids, but nope, that ones for me (they can use it if they want). :)

Delicious #Easter Candy Alternatives Your Kids will Love!

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.



This post is about some of my absolute favorite (kid-approved) items to put in your child's Easter Basket to replace some of the sugar filled gunk that is so very popular this time of year. Now I'll be honest, I do a mix of the two (non-sugar and gunk), but for those who want no candy or sweets (my daughter-in-law is very strict about no sugary treats for her little one), but still want to create fun baskets (and memories), I have included my tried-and-true favorites for this post. First, the Aqua Ball naturally flavored water drinks. Shaped like an egg for the holiday season, these are a perfect addition to the baskets. Kids love 'em because they have a fruity flavor along with one of their favorite characters printed on the bottle. A favorite character makes everything more special. Moms love 'em because they're increasing the water uptake for the children, they're enhanced with vitamins, and they have no sugar or preservatives. You can find these, along with all of the items mentioned below, in stores everywhere. These items are all reasonably priced as well.

HABA is a wonderful brand for high quality items for children, any time of the year, but with Easter right around the corner, they're definitely the perfect place to find fun items to give to the bunny (you know, the one who will leave the baskets). ;)

Easter Ham-wich Bunny and Egg Cut-Outs


Bunny and Easter Egg cut-outs make perfect little sandwiches, and are a most egg-cellent way to use your Easter leftovers. If you've already tried Heluva Good dip, you know it's got a flavor that just can't be beat. If you haven't, you're in for a real treat! I'm using it this year to make our little sammies and I know the kids will get a big kick out of them because of the shapes. The adults will get a big kick out of them because of the taste. They're a cinch to make, and I bet if you have guests coming right after the holiday (especially if kids are involved, but even if they're not) that they will love them too. :)

How to Stop Your Baldness from Overwhelming You

Some people embrace their look when they are losing or have lost their hair, and that confidence alone makes them sexy. Think Bruce Willis, Vin Diesel, Billy Zane, Sean Connery, The Rock... I could go on. For those who do not embrace losing their hair so readily, there are options.

Secret Answers to Questions about Beauty

This is a sponsored post. Please help welcome my guest blogger.

Even makeup professionals have questions about beauty, so it is no surprise that the average woman might experience much of the same. Skin changes, so we certainly do not learn the answers to everything as we grow and go through different stages of life. At the same time, so many fads in makeup applications have come and gone in previous years too. Here are the answers to some of those ageless questions about beauty at long last.

Cuteness Overload! Easter Basket Plush Bunnies and More from Papyrus Online

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.



Have you ever gotten a 'gift' online with someone else in mind, and then fell so in love with it when it arrived that you ended up wanting (and keeping!) it for yourself? I have a confession to make: I ordered this huge bunny from Papyrus Online for a sweet little apple dumpling (child) in my family for Easter. Even when it arrived, inside of a sealed plastic bag for safe keeping, I still had no desire to call it my own (ahem, I mean my son's) BUT when I opened the bag, oh my goodness!! all that fluffy cotton-tailed cuteness was too hard to resist.
