Kinzd Wallet or Cosmetic Case #Giveaway

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

Real leather makes me happy when it comes to so many things, including wallets. If the wallet is RFID blocking? Even better. Kindz wallets are both, and you can get them in so many styles, colors and varieties.

Back to School: Be Sure to Print those Precious Memories!

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

It is that time of year when we're taking those precious back-to-school photos on our digital cameras or smartphones. Are you printing those images, or storing them, most times never to be used again? I know sometimes our digital space gets short and we delete photos in storage so we are able to take new pictures. How often though, do we take steps to print before we hit 'delete' never to see those precious memories again? For those of you who do, hurrah! For those of you who do not, it's not too late to start! Groupon makes it easy with great coupon code savings from places such as Shutterfly!

Tips for Selecting a Garage Door

Photo Source
One of the jobs my 2nd oldest son has done is installing or fixing garage doors. I loved when he had that job because he would often be in my area, and swing by to visit on his lunch break. ;) He learned a lot about the business, because hands-on experience is always the best experience (in my opinion), and I learned a little just by overhearing his conversations on the phone. The most important piece of information I gleaned from that period of time is that people take their garage doors very seriously, and they should. The garage door is the focal point of so many home exteriors, and in addition to being practical, it can be a great way to up the ante on the curb value of your home. The experts at Haas Door (Wauseon, Ohio) have endless ideas, tips and ways to help you select the garage door(s) that will help enhance your home, and showcase the personality of it in a way that really stands out (or blends in well, depending on your preference).

Airtight Infinity Jars Preserve and Protect

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

Ultraviolet light filtering technology keeps any and everything you put inside of Infinity Jars safer than if you were using clear or amber glass. In fact, these containers with an airtight seal preserve, rejuvenate and keep the taste and smell of your items intact longer than most any other container. In the photo above you can see three of the four different sizes they have for cooking oil bottles that have a spout. Please note they have many other sizes, shapes and types of glass jars and containers. I just thought these were perfect for storing precious oils you don't want to quickly go bad!

Seaside Beach and Picnic Mat: Perfect for Anywhere Outside!

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

We always take a blanket or large towel with us to the beach but until recently we never did when we'd head over to the pool. The problem is, it was always so hot getting out of the pool that it was unpleasant. Our feet would get burnt, there was no place to sit either because there is no shade over the apartment complex pool where we live. The Seaside Beach & Picnic Mat  folds flat, and is easy to carry along anywhere you go, so now in addition to having it along at the beach, we're bringing it to the pool as well.

Getting the Classroom Ready: Back to School with Oriental Trading

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

School teachers sometimes write up a lists of supplies that make their student's parents' mouths drop when they see them. Why is that? It's because teachers pay for 90% of the supplies that go into their room. Pencils, paper, index cards, staples, and even copy paper if they run out of their quota for the month (and they always run out of their quota for the month). Then you have dry erase markers to use every day (they are not cheap, and they run out fairly quickly), folders, sticky notes, erasers, pencil sharpeners, you  name it. It adds up. One way to help ease the burden is to ask students to bring things in. Another is to shop at Oriental Trading.

EduShape Toys DO Make Bathtub Time Fun!

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

The fastest way to get a child to love bath time is to stick a cool toy in there. Seriously, it's hands down never failed once for me. That's saying a lot, considering I have a family of 4 children of my own, nieces, nephews (in-laws, but still like my very own) and a grandbaby who have all loved bathtime here because I keep great toys on hand!! The newest I've added to my collection, and it is fun for little ones, is a Sensory Hoops set from EduShape.

How We #GetUpandGo with Go Organically Fruit Snacks (plus chance to win $500 gas gift card)!

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

Everyone knows that if you have kids and you're going anywhere, you are probably also toting snacks. My son is super energetic and always on the go, usually to someplace outside, and baby it's hot out thar'!  We're running in the high 90's to low 100's as far as temperatures go right now. To help make sure he's running at full speed, I always make sure we bring along water and a snack. Right now he's big on the Go Organically Fruit Snacks, so 9 out of 10 times, that's what you're going to see in our tote bag when we're on the go. What else is in there?

Camerons Multi-Use LED Lantern with #Giveaway

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

I know the typical use for something like the Cameron's Multi-Use LED Lantern would be camping. In the state of Florida though, we keep things like this around for the storms. A lot of times our lights will be out for days when a big one goes through, such as Tropical Storm Emily threatened to do to us recently. Thankfully she passed us by, but if she'd have come, I had this lantern all batteried up and ready to go. ;)

Welch's is Full of Surprises! Contest FYI!

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

Welch's Fruit Rolls are unlike any other fruit roll up you have ever tried. These actually taste so fruity, and tangy and g.o.o.d. Usually I leave this kind of snack to the kids, but I've been taking one to work every day too.

The Brand for a Fresh Makeup Look: ModelsOwn

Sculpt & Glow Liquid Highlighter
Those of you who go way back (and thank you for being so consistent with your visits, I definitely appreciate it!) may remember my post about my daughter always changing up her hair. It's not something she outgrew, and now that she is a freshman in college, and no longer a kid, she's still one to always change her look. It's just something she enjoys doing. For now, it's orange (hair). How long that will last? I wouldn't hold my breath! Now, I'll admit when I hear the word 'orange,' it instantly alarms me (I'm far more conventional than she is), but I really like it! The thing is, even though she is now a young adult her skin hasn't quite outgrown blemishes, so she needs a good coverage with her make-up (even if highlighter...and eyebrows, which she also loves doing right now...are the only make-up she is wearing).

Divaderme Mascara: The Look of False Eyelashes in a Bottle

What?!?! Those lashes are real? You betcha, and with this mascara it's easy for you to get long lashes in an instant too. The dual mascaras that she is wearing from Divaderme Professional Cosmetics serve well to extend and coat. They make extreme lashes absolutely effortless.

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

This box, with it's pretty blue color, and reputable brand name (BewellConect, My Thermo) is very important to me, and I'll tell you why.

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

You know it's beach time when mama breaks out the toys. For one of our latest happy ocean days I took along Hydro Storm water guns from Adventure Force, and the big ol' mac daddy Super Storm from the same line. I also took along they fancy new sea creature shovels from American Plastic Toys.
