KidsEmail.Org Try it Free! One Lucky Winner Gets a Year Free! #SafeEmail4Kids

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

One lucky winner is going to get 1 Year of KidsE-Mail.org (a $38.95 value) to call their own! Why is that a big deal? Well because this isn't an ordinary e-mail system. It is better...way better! Kids Email is a safe alternative for kids that allows them to communicate via the ever-popular format of e-mail, while at the same time helping to ensure they are safe. I know my youngest has asked to create e-mail and social media accounts and I gave him a big fat no for both requests. He's just too young to even know what it means to be responsible in these arenas, and takes most things online at face value, even though I've told him repeatedly that not everything you see or hear online is true. ;)

Spring time is here! Spring is my favorite season of the whole year. I love seeing the sun come back out after a long winter, I love getting into my garden and growing herbs, and I love spring cleaning! I also love redecorating my house around springtime. Everything is just so fresh and new! One easy way to revamp any space is with wall decals! What I love about wall decals is that they are easy to install, can change the whole look of a room, and when you are ready for a new design they are easily removed. EvgieNev Wall Decals are my go-to wall decals and I love to use them in the kids room, and any other room that needs some sprucing up. They have great choices for adults and kids alike for every room of your home!

Volunteer Work: Top 5 Tips for Getting Involved

I heard someone say once that if you're bored, you're just in the 'me' state of mind, and need to step out and do something for someone else to take your mind off of it. I'm paraphrasing, but it was something like that... and hey, it works!! We volunteer often, and it's one of the most beneficial ways I know to teach kids how to work well in a team, help them to naturally foster their levels of compassion, and show them how to make a real difference that they can see. I am a huge proponent of getting involved and have compiled my list of top five tips to help others who might be thinking of volunteering too.

He's not overly fond of the hairnet as a fashion accessory, but I think he really rocks the look. ;)

Infographic: Power Rangers Through the Years

Infographic Created by PureCostumes.com

My kids were always the kings and queen of dressing up when they were younger. If they didn't have the look they were going for, they would create it out of whatever items they could find around the house. Typical, awesome kids, right? So when I heard that the Power Rangers had a new movie coming out on March 24th, I immediately thought of the good old days when my littles would have been all into dressing in character! 

Where else to get an awesome costume for any occasion, including a Power Rangers dress-up day than Pure Costumes? They've been our go-to for years, and with good reason. If you want a quality costume that lasts, I suggest heading to their site first. This post isn't sponsored, it's just my own opinion.

I'm looking forward to this movie, it's a good way to introduce my youngest son to characters his older siblings loved when they were his age. He is 9-years-old now, which IS pretty grown up (just ask him, he'll tell you), so he doesn't dress up as much as he used to do, but I'm guessing after we see this movie, he wouldn't at all mind revisiting his 'dressing in character' days. I'm not sure who his favorite Power Ranger will be yet, but blue is his favorite color, so I suspect I might have a good guess. If so, I'll keep you posted. ;) Big thanks to Pure Costumes for the infographic.

Congratulations to Vicky whose name was randomly selected by Rafflecopter as the winner of the Baby Foot Exfoliant Foot Peel kit.

Enter to Win a MyCharge HubPlus and Charge Apple® and Android at the Same Time!

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



Having to find or carry cables is now a thing of the past with the MyCharge HubPlus that has them already built-in. Finding that little piece on the end to plug into the wall is also a thing of the past (because one of those is also built-in), and finding two separate charges because one device is an Apple® product and the other an Android, is also a thing of the past because...you guessed it, this one has one of each...built-in!

I See Me Personalized Book and Plush Bunny Duo. Perfect for Easter!

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

I See Me! offers high quality personalized children's books and more for Easter that your kids are going to love! In the photo above, you see one of the personalized placemats available. They also sell personalized coloring books, stickers, and more! Everything I've ever seen from this company (and I've seen all of the above over the years), has been top notch in quality. A lot of time and effort are put into making sure they create and sell products that are not only adorable (and they are that) but that they are also going to last for a very long time to come. This year, the big deal for us is the super soft plush bunny and personalized book duo seen above. I got this pair for my granddaughter and I cannot wait to give it to her!! Her parents don't like her to have too many sweets, and this is definitely a perfect alternative. Plus, reading is her 'thing' and I just know she's going to love this bunny!

Chef's Vision Knife Set - These are Fantastic!

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


I knew my new Chef's Vision Landscape Kitchen Knife Set was going to be one that I absolutely loved, and when it arrived and I got to use it...no even before I got to use them, I was completely enamored to the point of dancing around my kitchen. They are a visual delight! Each knife blade features a gorgeous scene from different places around the world, and has a matching colorful handle. These are high quality, razor sharp, 100% stainless steel blades, and in addition to looking great, these slice and dice just like you would want them to do.
