#Sponsored #MasterBacktoSchool with Master Lock!

Disclosure: This is a compensated post brought to you by Global Influence. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.

Master Lock has got some innovative and fun products to help keep your back-to-school items safe! 


Everyone seems to be talking about back to school now, and I can see why...it's always best to prepare ahead of time, for some people there are only two weeks of summer vacation left (we have four), and time does go by very quickly. And while I'd like to enjoy what's left of summer (and we will!), we too, have started to pick up things here and there for our back-to-school preparation.

According to a survey*, more than half North American students do not use a locker to keep their items safe throughout the school day, but rather they carry their belongings with them. I am happy to say my children are not included in that statistic because our school system has lockers from K-12.

*Survey conducted by Survey Monkey in May 2014 among Americans representative of a National U.S. Census.

Welcoming the Wikki Stix Designer Piggy Bank to Our Home

Disclosure: We received a product to help facilitate the review. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.

When my son opened his Wikki Stix Designer Piggy Bank it was definitely love at first sight.
The bank measures a very generous 9" in length and approximately 8.75" in cute pudgy roundness.

We have a piggy bank that we love, and he gets used a lot. That being said, when I saw the Wikki Stix Designer Piggy Bank, I knew we could have two piggy banks in our house and be very happy. I was right!

The bank, made of high quality ceramic, is very generous in size, which means it's going to be great for saving for something big! We haven't decided what we're saving for yet, but 'Piggy' is already getting heavy with the nickels, dimes, and pennies that my son recovered from a very thorough house hunt yesterday.

FabKids.com July Outfit (with giveaway!!)

Disclosure: We received an outfit to help facilitate the review. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.

FabKids Surf Time Outfit
Surf's Academy Hooded Tee
& Hawaiian Pull-On Shorts

Our FabKids outfit for July came a couple of days ago, and let me just say I love having a clothing subscription coming to my front door once a month. This month the outfit was a great tee with a hood (oh my boy loves that hood), and a pair of long geometric print shorts. Each month, with your free subscription, you will have an outfit hand-selected for you. You can decide if you like it, or if you prefer something else instead (no obligation to buy, ever). Or you can just decide to let the charge go through, and have a credit for any one entire outfit, to buy any time in the future that you choose.

Catching Fireflies in Hatley Pajamas

Catching fireflies in your pajamas is fun!
Loving the new Hatley Green Book 'Bear Hug' Kids Short PJ set

Look who's catching fireflies in his brand new Hatley PJ's!

One of the great things about summer is running around the yard before bedtime, catching fireflies. We live in Michigan, so it stays light until 9:30 or 9:45, but around 8:30 or so the lightning bugs start to come out. Tonight we went out, like we have for the last couple of nights, to see what we could find. Little man had already brushed his teeth and gotten into his pj's and so that's how it came about that he was dressed like he was for tonight's adventure. I grabbed my camera. ;)
