Graco Modes Click Connect Travel System

Graco Modes Click Connect Travel System

I was provided a Graco Modes Click Connect Travel System to gift to a family in need in exchange for this post.  All opinions are my own. I shared just before Christmas how I was able to pay it forward before the Holidays by blessing a family with a totally fun toy.  I admit that I sometimes get so caught up with my girls, my work, and life that I forget to step back and think about how I can be a blessing to others - by giving of my time and donations.  But that post reminded me that I need to take that time and use it as a wonderful teaching opportunity for my girls - so they learn the importance of giving too! So in a time when it's quite popular to be sharing New Year's Resolutions, I'm sharing mine with you... "To give more in 2015".  I want to be more generous - with my time and wonderful opportunities that come about from … [Read more...]

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...]

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?!"

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.
