Learning to Read with Rosetta Stone Kids

Rosetta Stone Kids

I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Rosetta Stone. I received a product and a promotional item to thank me for participating. It's hard to believe that it's already time for Sophia to start learning how to read.  I turned to Rob the other day and said "You realize we don't have babies anymore."  I've always considered myself a "New Mom", but now that I'm getting ready to be a Mom to a 3 and 4.5 year old... well, I guess that description doesn't get applied to me anymore! When Sophia comes home from Preschool every day, I ask her what she did that day and listen to her stories about everything that happened that morning.  I always ask her what center she played in and her answer is always the Art Center.  My girl loves Arts and Crafts, that's for sure!  I inquire about the other centers and … [Read more...]

Personalized Christmas Gifts for Friends from Personalization Mall

Gift Guide for Friends

Today's post about Personalized Christmas Gifts for Friends has been sponsored by Personalization Mall.  All opinions are my own. December is moving right along - yes, it's only the 4th, but it seems like just yesterday it was Halloween - which means Christmas is literally just right around the corner.  If you're anything like me, Holiday Lists are one thing that's totally taking over your To-Do List. I'm constantly thinking "Do I have a gift for her?  For him?  What else do I need to get?!" If you still have friends on your list to buy for, then today's post is just for you!  I'm sharing some of my favorite Personalized Christmas Gifts for Friends from Personalization Mall. The first thing you'll notice about Personalization Mall when you visit is... they have anything and everything you can think of... which makes shopping super … [Read more...]

A Look at Bummis Cloth Diapers: Flannel Fitted, Simply Lite Diaper Cover, and Potty Pant

Bummis Cover

Hi, I'm Tasha! A forever 29 year old, born and raised in the south, wife to Mr. G, and mommy to two sweet boys, Weston and William.  After working in the banking industry for 10 years, I recently resigned and accepted the highly demanding position of SAHM.  Cloth diapers, monograms, smocked clothing, consignment sales, make up, sweet tea, crafting, cooking, baby snuggles, and toddler giggles are just a few of my favorite things! I'm excited for the opportunity to contribute to the mommy blogging world, and I look forward to sharing some of my experiences with you!   I have always wanted to try a Bummis cloth diaper, so I was super excited for the opportunity to do a review on a few complimentary items from Bummis. I received a Flannel Fitted diaper, a Simply Lite diaper cover, and a Potty Pant. FLANNEL FITTED This diaper … [Read more...]

A Review of the Lily Cup Compact: The First Collapsible Menstrual Cup

First collapsible Menstrual Cup

It's been awhile since I last talked menstrual cups, but they're still one of the most popular reasons people come to my blog.  I never imagined that I would write about such a subject like this but when something changes your life, literally, you have to share it.  So here I am, continuing to share my love and freedom that has come to my life, all courtesy of menstrual cups. I say those words, of course, with a little tongue in cheek behind them.  I try to make light of a sometimes gloomy subject - our period.  But the thing is, once I started successfully using a cup, I stopped dreading my period so much.  Of course I'm not going to go so far as to say I am happy when Aunt Flo comes to visit, but I don't wallow in self pity because I know the horrible cramps and endless amounts of tampons and bathroom trips. I've been a happy … [Read more...]

Cruising on 6 Wheels: Step2 Spin & Go Xtreme Cruiser

Xtreme Cruiser Step2

I am a Step2 Ambassador and am partnering with Step2 for the following review. I received a product in exchange for my review and honest opinion.  I am so so excited about today's post.  You may remember that I traveled to Ohio this Summer to visit the Step2 Headquarters.  I blogged about my experience getting to see the company from the inside out and what it meant to me to be a Step2 Ambassador.  Of course, it wasn't all work while we were there or let me say, the work that we did while we were there was loads of fun for this Mom. During one of our meetings we had the chance to check out a totally new, fresh concept of a motorized ride-on toy.  Every single one of us had to pick our jaw up when we saw the toy in real life.  It was tough, it was rugged, it was just so different from anything else on the market and I couldn't wait … [Read more...]

aden+anais for Adults [a Review of the bamboo daydream blanket]

Daydream Review

I received an aden+anais daydream blanket for review purposes.  All opinions and absolute love for this luxurious blanket are real and 100% my thoughts.  I've been a lover of all things aden+anais for about 3 years now.  I'm a little sad that I didn't discover this luxurious brand until after Sophia was older for she definitely missed the pampering touch of a lovely swaddle tucked in a+a. Of course she enjoyed that swaddle a little later than normal, but still, she enjoyed it.  Moreaya has been an aden+anais blanket girl from the start and still sleeps with a swaddle blanket [definitely a security blanket for her] and her bamboo dream blanket keeping her warm every night.  From the moment I reviewed the swaddles I wished for an adult sized version.  Either they really listen to what I have to say or I wasn't alone in that … [Read more...]

Marketing a Small Business with Car Magnets

sebg250x250notagline

Thank you to Katherine for contributing this post on marketing small business with car magnets. Ideally, an effective small business advertisement would cover a wide area and still be eco-friendly. Car magnets are a perfect way to do both — they go everywhere you do, making them visible in many locations throughout the day, and they’re completely reusable. If you want more reasons to consider getting your own customized car magnets, keep reading! Benefits of Car Advertisements Think about the last vehicle advertisement you saw. If it was colorful and well-designed, it caught your eye and probably held your attention for a few seconds. It wasn’t just you, either — up to 100,000 people can see an ad on a vehicle during a day in a highly populated area. Even if you live in a smaller community, you can take a quarter of that number and … [Read more...]

Using a Handheld Steamer to Clean Your Couch [+ a review of the HAAN Handheld Steamer All Pro]

HAAN Steam Couch

I'm definitely still on a journey to be more green in my lifestyle choices.  That doesn't mean I'm totally and completely 100% eco-friendly in every choice I make, but that's why I'm striving for.  One of the best green choices I made in the past was to trade in my traditional mop and buckets for a steam mop. Since HAAN was the brand I trusted when I made that switch, I decided that HAAN should be the brand that I use when I made the next switch to cleaning with a handheld steamer.  In fact, HAAN sent me the HS20R Handheld Steamer just a few weeks ago [at no cost to facilitate this review] so I could prepare for an upcoming move! That's right - we've put our house up for sale in hopes of moving just a few miles away to get into a better school district for the girls.  It's a nerve racking experience and one that I was absolutely … [Read more...]

Mustela Bébé Line Now Available at Walgreens

Mustela Lotion

I participated in an Influencer Activation Program on behalf of Influence Central for Mustela. I received a promotional item to facilitate my review. Today I want to introduce you to Mustela - The skincare expert for babies and mothers-to-be for over 60 years and the #1 Baby Care and Stretch Marks Brand in Europe because Mustela is now readily available right here in the U.S.!  As of last month, Mustela products were made available in more than 1,000 Walgreens stores. Y'all know how I like easy and being able to purchase high quality products in stores where I already shop makes my life a lot easier and it will yours too - when you have a new baby to run errands with you!  Along with being readily available in most neighborhoods, Mustela has undergone a reformulation to make it a better products for parents and sweet, sensitive baby … [Read more...]

On the Go Snacks – Jif To Go Dippers

Airplane Travel

I participated in an Influencer Activation Program on behalf of Influence-Central for Jif To Go Dippers. I received a sample to facilitate my review and a thank you item for participating. A few weeks ago we had the opportunity to travel to Orlando for a Julius Jr. Weekend at the Nickelodeon Hotel.  It was a fabulous weekend of entertainment for the girls and one that none of us will ever forget!  Not only did we get to visit a city full of fun, but it was the girls' first time flying on an airplane. To say I was a wee bit nervous about flying with a 4 year old and a 2 year old... well, that's an understatement.  Sophia and Moreaya are really good girls, but any time you're talking going through security, sitting in a pretty tight space for an hour, keeping toddlers entertained, AND keeping them happy and fed while on the plane … [Read more...]

Lunching Awesome with Applegate HALF TIME Lunch Kits

Lunching Awesme Collage

This post was created in partnership with Stonyfield. All opinions are my own. Let me just tell you, these girls have been lunching awesome for a few weeks now.  I am so glad that we discovered the new HALF TIME™ Lunch Kits from Applegate because they're convenient, delicious [so the girls rave], and organic. No GMO ingredients No fillers No artificial ingredients No chemical nitrates or nitrates added When we're grocery shopping there's always a "Hey, Mom - can we get one of those" when we go by the yellow boxed lunch section.  I take a tiny bit offense to say that plainly stacked crackers a teensy tiny candy bar would look more appetizing than some of the bento lunches I make for them, but I have to remember - it's marketing and my little gals are falling right into it. So when Applegate launched the … [Read more...]
