Experience Passionate Scents with Caress Forever Collection #CaressForever #12HrTouchTechnology


I was recently given the opportunity to try the new Caress Forever Collection- they are two new body-washes that have a special long-release fragrance that is designed to keep you smelling great all day long. The folks at Caress have developed what they're calling Fragrance Touch Technology- tiny Fragrance Release Pearls that release bursts of perfume with every touch of your skin. I received both the Adore Forever and the Love Forever scents to sample and see how they worked. The both of the body washes performed wonderfully in the shower- … [Read more...]

Perfect Bar Review- a Fresh Protein Bar with no Preservatives


I was given the opportunity to try out the Perfect Bar- it's a new protein bar that is so fresh it has to be refrigerated! I was really eager to give them a shot, so when they arrived in their box, still cold thanks to the packaging and ice pack that they shipped it with, I didn't waste any time popping one open and trying it out. They sent one of every flavor- Fruit and Nut, Cranberry Crunch, Almond Coconut (Vegan!!!), Almond Butter (both a regular size and a 100 calorie mini bar), Peanut Butter (both a regular size and a 100 calorie mini bar), … [Read more...]

Into the Woods Movie Review


I was sent a copy of Into the Woods to review. As always, all opinions are my own. If you have never seen Into the Woods and I told you it was about the woods outside a small town and how small the world really is, would you believe me? The movie is basically a series of happenstance and fairy tale characters (and stories) keep colliding to make a beautiful movie. I was fortunate enough to get to see this movie while three children cried about everything in the world the first time (notice the sarcasm) so I missed a lot. Luckily I was sent the … [Read more...]

Hasbro’s Fall Toy Party

There are few things my kids love more than a party, and one of those is a party all about toys. Hasbro was kind enough to send me a select group of toys to try out and because I decided the most fun I could have was a party with some of my friend's and their kids. The toys were a huge hit as soon as I pulled them out. I'm surprised I got any pictures because they didn't want to slow down playing long enough to let me even point a camera at them. My personal favorite was Rocket Racoon. You can't beat Guardians of the Galaxy and Rocket is just … [Read more...]

Go! Go! Smart Animals are Tons of Fun!

Go! Go! Smart Animals Forest Adventure Playset

My son turned four today.  I am utterly amazed that it has been that long. I remember being at the doctor telling them that I either had the flu or I was dying.  Nope. I was pregnant. Barely four weeks pregnant to be exact.  And now I have a four year old.  The best thing about today was the fact that we could play toys all day long.  Or we could play one toy because that is how my son rolls. He has been playing with his Go! Go! Smart Animals™ Forest Adventure Playset™ since we received it.  It is very true that it is hours of fun. Children … [Read more...]

Vitafusion MultiVites Gummies for Adults #HealthyFusion


“I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Vitafusion. I received a product sample to facilitate my review and promotional item to thank me for participating.” I used to hate vitamins. I know, I am an adult and they are important, but I used to never take any. I totally hated the taste and the texture of the vitamins. Even when I was pregnant I would dread the point of the day that I had to take the vitamins and would always get sick afterwards every day.  During my last pregnancy I discovered prenatal … [Read more...]

Making Milk More Delicious with MilkSplash


Do your kids enjoy milk? Like most children I know, my children are obsessed with milk.  My youngest son has always loved it and he always asks me every day if he can have some choc choc.  That is his word for chocolate milk.  He likes plain milk if we do not have chocolate syrup but he prefers choc choc.  Well, choc choc is FULL of sugar.  When I started trying to become more healthy I looked up the calories for the syrup and milk and it was over 300 calories for one cup of milk.  I told my husband that we had to cut back.  So when we were … [Read more...]
