Celebrating Special Moments with Flowers from Teleflora

With everything going on in the world, it is so important to show others some kindness. We have been in high gear thinking of simple ways we can show each other love and kindness. And although it may be a splurge, one of my favorite ways to surprise people I love in my life is with flowers through Teleflora.

Celebrating Special Moments with Flowers from Teleflora

I have been working with Teleflora since Christmas 2018 and I have loved every bouquet that I have received thus far. Teleflora has some beautiful options whoever you want to show some special love to for whatever the occasion. I have received bouquets for Christmas, Valentine's Day, and Mother's Day. I have also given my mother-in-law plants from Teleflora and sent my mom a bouquet for Mother's Day.

Donate a Mask with Every Purchase Thanks to MaskMarket

I have always believed to never live your life in fear, but God gave us a brain to think for ourselves for a reason. Be smart, prepare yourself as best you can, and stay safe. If wearing a face mask helps my family stay safe, then I will do it. Some places are requiring them these days so I have been on the hunt for one that serves it's purpose, but doesn't hurt my ears. I was also looking for some that were adjustable for my kids to wear as well.

Wearing a mask or not has become a political debate for some reason when it honestly shouldn't be. If a private establishment has rules, then they should be followed and, if not, then that establishment has the right to not let the person disobeying the rules on their property. 

Some people have diseases that can't be seen and those diseases compromise their immune system. Some people are elderly and are at risk. Wearing a mask is protecting others. My family and I choose to wear a mask when we go to different places because we are just so grateful that things are opening up again.

"Dora and the Lost City of Gold" on Digital & Blu-Ray + Giveaway

I received complimentary products to provide this post. All opinions are my own.

Having spent most of her life exploring the jungle with her parents, nothing could prepare Dora (Isabela Moner, Instant Family) for her biggest challenge yet – high school. When her parents mysteriously disappear while searching for the Lost City of Gold, Dora must swing into action and lead a group of ill-equipped high schoolers on a wild quest to save them. Hold on for a high stakes mission as Dora and her new friends navigate the jungle, outrun treasure hunters, and solve ancient puzzles to unlock the mystery of the fabled city.

Dora is all grown up in this new tale that actually has a playful nod to the original cartoon. My step-sister grew up loving Dora and being only a few years older while still loving cartoons, I loved her too. So when my daughter and I went to the movies, we saw the trailer for "Dora The Lost City of Gold" and were very excited. So we are thrilled to own it on digital and Blu-Ray now. And we loved the kit Paramount sent that included a Maglite as well!

Easy, Interactive Halloween Costumes from Flappysuits + Giveaway

In our house, September means getting ready for Halloween! It is one of my favorite holidays, if not my favorite. I love dressing up and decorating, creating spooky recipes for the kids, or watching family-friendly scary movies, but I love that there isn't all the pressure that tends to come with Christmas. This year my kiddos didn't know what they wanted to dress up as for Halloween, so when I was asked to try out Flappy suits, I thought what a great opportunity to let my kids choose what they want to be.

Flappy suits have secret airbags built into the costume, which cause different parts of the costume to magically move! They’re great for Halloween costume parties and slumber parties. They have a variety of flappy suit animals to choose from.

SO CUTE! and SO COOL! Giveaway from National Geographic Kids

National Geographic Kids Books is rolling out a brand new series of picture books that are perfect for kids ages 3-7 (preschool - 2nd grade). To celebrate the release of the first two books in their So Cool! So Cute! series National Geographic is giving away a very huggable prize pack: a hardcover copy of So Cool! Sharks, a hardcover copy of So Cute! Pandas AND adorable shark and panda plushes. 

Celebrate Any Holiday with Winc + Giveaway

I love working with WINC! And I am so excited for this giveaway! Please make sure WINC delivers to your area before entering and remember you MUST be 21+ to enter. Void where prohibited.

Winc is not your traditional wine club: they are a direct-distribution global wine company that personalizes the entire wine experience. They are perfecting how wine is made, distributed, perceived, and purchased. I have never been a sweet wine drinker. That's what I love about Winc. They personalize your wines based on your tastes called the Palate Profile quiz. They ask you questions like, "How do you like your coffee?", "How do you feel about salt?", "Do you like citrus?", etc. It then will recommend wines based on your profile, but you can then select different ones if you'd like.

Rainy Day Spring Break Fun with TCG Toys + Giveaway

It is Spring Break this week at our house. My husband had to work this week, so no vacations for us. And exploring the world will have to wait until another time. And that's fine. We love exploring where we live locally too. My issue is what do you do when the weather is bad and you have two cooped up kids to entertain all day?

What better than some fun games to play from TCG Toys?!

Pink Lemonade Shop Review & Giveaway

If you have been following for any period of time, then you know that the main reason I am eco-friendly is because I feel like it is more cost effective. Now since this is such a different way than I was brought up or my husband was for that matter, there is a learning curve to any that is new.

Back in February, I received some products to try out from Pink Lemonade Shop. They are a mama owned, Southwest Ohio small business that make pads for girls to pads for postpartum. So this review and giveaway will be about reusable feminine hygiene products. You can use them for post-partum or even if you have some bladder leakage. But that's what these products are. I just want to be up-front about that before you continue on.
