Every Mother deserves flowers on Mother's Day! #OneToughMother #Teleflora

Links to this post

Being a Mother is the most rewarding job that I can think of and I consider all four of my children my biggest blessings. Although I love my "job" it can be tough at times and is not without a few struggles. Whether it's being up all night with a sick child, administering "tough love" when necessary or giving support and encouragement along the way, every Mom deserves to have the title of "One Tough Mother." Being this person isn't always easy so a little show of appreciation certainly goes a long way with me and nothing says appreciation like an unexpected delivery of a gorgeous bouquet from Teleflora!

This year Teleflora is making it super easy to give thanks to your Mom (or Mother figure) for the strength and love it takes to be a Mom with an all new collection of Mother's Day bouquets. Whether the person you want to recognize and honor is near or far, Teleflora has you covered with bouquets that are professionally arranged and hand-delivered a local florist rather than arriving in a box or assembled at a warehouse. It's all very personal. As an added bonus, most of the bouquets come in one of a kind keepsake containers that can be used long after the flowers are gone and something that she will look at and remember how special she felt when receiving her bouquet.

Emjoi MicroNail Buff & Shine Manicure Kit

Links to this post
I've never really had nice fingernails and although I've had my share of time at the salon, keeping up with regular nail fillings and the cost of acrylic nails just isn't for me. A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to test the Emjoi MicroNail Buff and Shine Tool and I thought it was certainly worth a try considering my fingernails were in pretty bad shape already.

When it comes to luggage, especially carry-on luggage, it's so important to choose the right bag. First and foremost, you need to be able to fit everything in the bag, without a hassle, it needs to be durable and to make life easier at the airport, being TSA friendly is a huge plus!

I have a few products from ECBC, so when I was able to test out the Sparrow Wheeled Garment Bag, I was certainly up for the challenge. All of my other bags from ECBC, including luggage and laptop bags are awesome...I couldn't ask for better quality, style or functionality from ECBC.

Two Delicious Cocktails to Go Green for This Earth Day!

Links to this post

April 22nd is the day that we celebrate Earth Day with activities and practices that are great for the environment, but wouldn't it be awesome if we were to "go green" everyday and not just on one designated day throughout the year? 

There are so many things we can do as individuals and as a family to celebrate the beautiful planet that we live on in addition to doing things that will make Earth a better place to live. By incorporating a few fun and beneficial activities into our daily lives, we will eventually become accustomed to living "green" and no longer celebrate just one day out of the year ~ we will be celebrating on a daily basis! Awesome!

Five Steps to Spring Cleaning the Washing Machine for Fresher Smelling Clothes

It must be spring when everyone starts to open their windows and flowers begin to bloom. But with spring, comes the cleaning. People begin to pack away winter clothing to make room for cooler attire and the house gets a lemon scented rub down. But the one room most people neglect during spring-cleaning is, the laundry room.

The washing machine takes a real beating with the multiple loads of clothing it deals with each week. Fuzz, dirt and hair get stuck in small spaces and the outside of the washer collects dust and slimy green soap scum from detergent. People count on their washer and dryer to take care of their clothes – now it’s time to give them a little TLC. Clean, well-maintained appliances make for cleaner clothes. Below are five steps that will help boost appliances’ health so they get laundry cleaner and fresher smelling every time.

Disney's #TheBFG comes to theaters July 1, 2016 ~ Watch the NEW trailer NOW!

Links to this post
Disney's "The BFG" tells the imaginative story of a young girl and the Giant who introduces her to the wonders and perils of Giant Country.

Director Steven Spielberg says, "I think it was kind of genius of Roald Dahl to be able to empower the children. It was very, very brave of him to introduce that combination of darkness and light which was so much Disney's original signature in a lot of their earlier works like in "Dumbo," "Fantasia," "Snow White" and "Cinderella," and being able to do scary, but also be redemptive at the same time and teach a lesson, and enduring lesson, to everyone, it was a wonderful thing for Dahl to have done, and it was one of the things that attracted me to want to direct this Dahl book."

Chef's Cut Real Jerky ~ New Protein-Packed Snack for Active Kids‏

Links to this post
With the warm weather around the corner, kids and adults will soon be on the run between baseball and softball practices, spring and summer road trips and just hanging outside with friends and family. With all of this new activity, it's extremely important to keep our kiddos healthy and energized.

Proper nutrition for children is so very important because not only does it promote the optimal growth and development in them, but also reduces the risk of obesity, iron deficiency and cavities. According to the CDC, most youth in the United States eat more than the recommended maximum daily intake of sodium, consume empty calories from added sugars and solid fats, which contibutes to 40% of daily calories and do not meet the recommendations for eating 2 1/2 cups to 6 1/2 cups of fruits and veggies each day.
