Even the most ardent and experienced traveler will no doubt agree that having confidence on your journey is important. Not only does it foster your adventurous spirit, but it helps you know your self-worth and ameliorate difficult situations head-on. For instance, if your hotel hasn’t provided the right amount of service to you, then being able to complain about it and uphold your rights as a guest is essential and worthwhile. In other words, when traveling, we cannot be timid.

#SandyBumz Ground Cover Giveaway (Ends 5_11)

Welcome To The Sandy Bumz Ground Cover Giveaway!

Tis' the season for warm weather and outdoor gatherings with or without the family. For those days when you just want to sit in the grass in the park, or in the sand on the beach, without a lot of muss and fuss, this Sandy Bumz Ground Cover is a drop-and-go kind of product that you will use over and over again. You can just toss it in the trunk of your car and have it available for those times when you need it. It's lightweight, easy to fold and unfold and helps keep dirt, sand, pests, etc. at bay. I love this kind of product and this one takes it a step further, by having a raised border all the way around too, providing even more protection than if it were just a flat blanket. I really like this product and could see our family using it time and time again. For us it would be perfect for summer days at the park or the beach.

How to Travel Safely and Stress Free with Children

When travelling with children, make sure you keep everyone safe and happy. Children often become bored easily on road trips and may not realize that you’re stopping to see the sights. If you want your children to enjoy the experience, put some thought into what you’re doing as you plan your road trip.

Playmobil now has Volkswagen Kits!

Disclosure: I received samples or a discount to apply towards the purchase of the products mentioned. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.



This building kit just screams summer in a box to me. This little Playmobil family is out and about and ready to explore new destinations. Of course doing it in a Volkswagen Beetle just makes it that much more exciting. I mean seriously, how cute is this for the kids to build?  This one is 52-pieces and it is just the kind of kit that kids love to sit around and build. It also makes the adults a little nostalgic. There's just something about a bug...

The VW Beetle is a real classic. Now the cult car with its unmistakable shape is entering the cheerful PLAYMOBIL world. Of course, the PLAYMOBIL Beetle has all the characteristic features that make it so unique, such as the curved fenders, the VW logo, the vertical windshield, the blue paint and the typical rear hood with a 4-cylinder boxer engine. After removing the roof, the lovingly designed interior with beige seats, dashboard and steering wheel is revealed. On the back seat there is space for the child, as well as a cool bag, sand toys and towel. Suitcase and surfboard can be strapped to the roof rack. Now it's time to get in and go to the beach! The playset contains three PLAYMOBIL figures, a Volkswagen Beetle by PLAYMOBIL with roof rack, removable roof and tailgate that can be opened, surfboard, cool box, sand toys and many other accessories.

How To Travel Safely With Your Dog

 Disclosure: This is a partnered post. Please welcome today's contributor.

Your dog is as much a part of your family as kids or a partner, so of course, it makes sense that you’ll want to take them with you when you travel. It’s important to understand that simply putting your dog in the car and driving or booking them onto a plane and hoping for the best isn’t going to be enough; you must plan in advance.

Even though dogs can be very in-tune to what we are doing, it is still very hard– impossible in most cases – to make them understand that they are going on a journey. This is why you need to prepare in advance to ensure that you have everything ready and aren’t stressed. It will make the trip much easier for you and your pet.

Things You Need For Your Next Trip Away

Disclosure: This is a partnered post. Please welcome today's contributor.

Traveling is a great way of gaining life experience and being able to see those iconic monuments or landmarks that you’ve only been able to see in books or online up until now. With that being said, there are some crucial things you’ll need for your travel, so here are things you need for your next trip away.

How to Fall in Love With Cooking All Over Again

Disclosure: This is a partnered post. Please welcome today's contributor.

It’s hard to truly love something if we feel like we don’t have a choice. You might like what you do for a living, but since it’s not really voluntary, there’ll be times when you wish you could be doing something else. The same principle can apply to cooking. Most people have a love/hate relationship with cooking, and in an age when we’ve had to cook more than usual (since restaurants have been closed), the pendulum is increasingly on the hate side of things. The good news is that it’s always possible to reignite your love of cooking! In this blog, we’ll take a look at a few tried and tested methods that’ll have you on the right path in no time.

How to Start Feeling More Confident about Your Body- Starting Today

Disclosure: This is a partnered post. Please welcome today's contributor.

Research has shown that the more time you spend on social media, the lower your self-esteem is. Instead of deleting all of your social media profiles, you need to try and find healthy coping mechanisms that will stop you from feeling bad about your body.

Write Down the Cool Stuff you Can Do

Instead of focusing on the things that you hate about your body, you need to acknowledge everything that your body has helped you to do. It may be that you have had a baby, that you are able to run a race or that you can lift weights. Either way, your body is your friend, and if you have low self-esteem, then there’s a chance that you have made yours into an enemy. This is the last thing that you need, so it helps to make sure that you are focusing on the positives and not just the negatives. If you are seriously unhappy with your body and want to make a change, surgery is an option. Just make sure that you do your research and that you watch videos about tummy tuck surgery before you commit.

Non Candy Ideas for Easter with Bundle Giveaway

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

Some of you might remember that my oldest granddaughter is a very healthy eater. She's gotten a little more relaxed in her 7-years (she now likes ice cream and M&Ms, and yes, sometimes she likes them together). For them most part though, she makes wise choices about what she puts on her plate. Her parents still don't like to have her sugared up, and so I am careful about what I gift her on holidays that typically entail a lot of candy or other types of sweets. As such, I have compiled a list below of great gift ideas that have zero calories (because you don't eat them) and the kids will love them just the same. Candy after all, is gone right after you eat it. These are going to last a lot longer, and some of them (like the books) will last long enough to be passed down from one generation to another.
