Mickey Mouse Clubhouse is a household name in my home. I have four children, from the ages of four to twenty and all have loved Mickey and his friends. My four year old, Tristan, is a huge fan of the gang so when we received this new DVD for review, he was super excited and watched it right away. Needless to say, he doesn't miss an episode or show where Mickey is involved.

Father's Day Gift Guide 2014
Father's Day is almost here and it's time to show love and appreciation for those men in your life who are awesome Fathers, Grandfathers or anyone who has been a great father-figure. Now the question is, what to get them? It's never easy, especially if your man is like my husband. My husband is the type of guy that collects gadgets and will work to get the things he really wants, so when Father's Day rolls around, we are always stumped. Not this year though...we have compiled some amazing products that any man would love to receive and they are actually useful too!
Brooks Brothers Gingham Shirt
Non-iron sport shirt, made from Supima® cotton oxford. Original Polo® button-down collar. Center back pleat. Front placket. Golden Fleece® embroidery at left chest. Contrast color on inside collar and cuffs. Deep yoke. Machine wash. Imported. Also available in Slim fit. They have many different colors to choose from, though I'm very partial to this blue color. As the country's oldest clothing retailer, Brooks Brothers is proud to uphold the same traditions and values for nearly two centuries. We believe these are the reasons why our customers consider us to be far more than a store. You can learn more about the Brooks Brother’s history and heritage HERE. Be Sure to take a look at their full Father's Day Gift Guide! You're gonna love what they have to offer.
A newborn swaddled baby is definitely a happy baby. The first months of a baby's life are exciting for parents, but at times, frustrating if you have a baby that is unhappy. My experience with all four of my children is that they all loved to be swaddled tight. The problem with that is that some receiving blankets are not made for swaddling, therefore, it just doesn't seem to do the job and baby is still not satisfied.

Living with acne is not fun...especially as a teenager. My daughter has suffered from acne and blackheads for a few years and nothing has seemed to work. We've tried so many products, everything from name brand products to dollar store products and even prescription creams with very little results.
Is there anyone out there that doesn't suffer from some kind of skin condition? I'm not talking about major skin problems, but everyday things like dry skin, eczema, itchy skin, or even severely cracked heels or hands. Not to mention the annoying things that can happen like sunburn, scrapes or burns.
I, personally, have two chronic and very annoying skin issues that I've been dealing with for years due to Hypothyroidism. My skin is super dry (all over) and my feet, especially my heels are so dry and cracked that I'm often embarrassed to wear my favorite shoes...flip flops! Thank goodness I had the opportunity to review a couple of awesome products from Cheryl Lee, MD Sensitive Skin Care. I received two skin care products, TrueLipids True Therapy Ceramide + Cream and TrueLipids True Therapy Relieve and Protect Ointment.
Great skin can be just a few drops away!
I received InstaNatural Rosehip Seed Oil for review and was anxious to try it out on my skin. Unfortunately, my skin is not in the excellent condition that it once was due to age, sun damage, and even a few small scars that I'd prefer not to have!

I've been wearing contact lenses for a very long time...and although I still like to wear my eyeglasses occasionally, I would much rather wear contact lenses.
I received a supply of Acuvue contact lenses for review and that really made my day! Acuvue offers so many different options for those of us who need help with our vision and I've never been disappointed in any product that I've tried from Acuvue. I've tried other brands and none have ever compared to the quality that I have received from my Acuvue lenses.

I was given the opportunity to review removable decals from Katazoom and I can honestly say that the selection was HUGE and made it very difficult to make a decision. Ultimately, I chose a decal for my two young sons' room and one for the kitchen...two rooms that are both used quite a bit in my home and needed some sprucing up!

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.
My son, Dominic has tried a few extra-curricular activities but his latest interest is martial arts so when I was able to try an online martial arts class for review I was very happy. Not only will Dominic be able to take the courses that he is interested in taking, but he will also get a taste of what martial arts is all about before I go through the process of signing him up, paying the monthly fees and transporting him to and from class.
This is the web's first Martial Arts for Kids MOOC (Massive Open Online Classroom). Although the primary benefit of training is to learn self defense, children will also gain in so many other areas of life.

Getting organized and staying organized is and has been one of my personal goals for a very long time. I have every intention of keeping all aspects of my household organized and and uncluttered but one area that gives me the most grief is my paperwork. This problem goes way back for me...I've worked as a manager in retail, an administrative assistant and in every job, including a stay-at-home-mom, filing as always been my downfall.
I've seen advertised programs that can simplify the process of keeping your paperwork and personal records neat and organized, but have never been able to afford these services, so when I was able to review FileCenter from Lucion Technologies, I was ecstatic!

**This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of H-E-B Baby Diapers**
I'm a mom of four awesome kids, each one very different in most ways, but all four have been alike in at least on particular way...diapers. They all wore them, they all went through a ton of diapers in their first few years and they all required to have diapers that we could depend on to keep them dry and leak free.
