It’s a Fab Five Friday! July 18th Edition

July 18, 2014 No Comments

Who’s excited it’s Friday?

I am just glad this week is about over. It was slightly derailed (I’ll get to that at the end of the post) early on, making it a tough week. Since last Friday, most the memorable moments happened over the weekend into Monday.

Here’s a look back at this week’s happenings (mainly revolving around the little ones, again):

Is it really Friday already? I guess I can handle that!

This week I decided to start doing Fab Five Fridays filled with things that happened throughout the week. I saw Lauren’s High Five for Friday post this morning and though it’s a great way to share what’s going on.

Here’s a look back at this week’s happenings:

Banana Boat – It’s Always in My Bag

June 11, 2014 No Comments

“I participated in an Ambassador Activation on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Banana Boat® Sun Care. I received product samples to facilitate my review and a promotional item to thank me for participating.”

We like to spend a lot of time outdoors and I feel responsible to protect my family’s skin. The sun can be brutal, especially if we are outside for long periods of time. To ensure their skin is protected, I turn to a variety of Banana Boat products. Which is why I am excited to announce that I am a Banana Boat Best Summer Ever Ambassador!

My Current Top 5 TV Shows & The Social Network for TV: Beamly

April 17, 2014 No Comments

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Beamly. The opinions and text are all mine.

The last time I checked, our DVR was over 50% full and includes countless episodes of shows I will probably never get around to watching. On a typical day, it may be the late evening before I get a chance to actually sit down and enjoy a good show. Sometimes I only have time to run a show in the background as I work on the computer or clean the kitchen.

Indulge Yourself to Help Manage the Holiday Season Stress

December 10, 2013 2 Comments

This post about managing holiday stress and Walgreens holiday solutions is part of a sponsored post for a Collective Bias® #HappyAllTheWay #cbias campaign. All opinions expressed are my own.

Every day, normal days, are chaotic and are accompanied with long ‘to-do’ lists. Then comes December, where the lists triple in length and there seems to be no time sleep or finish everything. For me, it gets stressful and sometimes I just have to remind myself the take a break and indulge in some premium snacks.

Slowing Down to Connect with Family over Coffee and Brunch

November 5, 2013 7 Comments

I am sharing this post about slowing down and connecting with family over coffee as part of a sponsored post for Collective Bias®.  All opinions are my own. 

I am sure I am not the only one who always feels rushed. No matter what I have going on, it seems like I have 100 other things I also need to be doing so I’m trying do it all at once, quickly. At least once a week, I need to remember to slow down, relax, and enjoy time with loved ones.

November 4, 2013 6 Comments

In in effort to spread awareness about the Champions for Kids #SIMPLEGiving program and teaching kids to donate, I created this sponsored post for Collective Bias® and their client. All opinions expressed are my own. 

My two oldest sons, ages 3 and 4, are evolving into amazing little men. They are always curious, asking questions, and eager to learn about new things. With the holiday season approaching, I have been looking for ways to teach them about donating and giving back to our community.
