Saving For College the Easy Way #TakeSimpleSteps

Thank you to Country Financial for sponsoring this conversation. All opinions are my own. These days the price of everything is on the rise from a gallon of gas to groceries and the cost of college for our kids is no exception. Like most parents, I want to give my children every opportunity possible, including college, but with it becoming harder and harder to save for everyday things, how do we begin to save for our children's college … [Read more...]

Holiday Gifts | Cariloha Bamboo Sheets | #GIVEAWAY | ends 12/22

Sample received. All opinions are my own. Your bedroom should be a place of comfort and relaxation. Many things go into creating that peaceful sanctuary and one of those important details, in my opinion, are great sheets! I'm always on the look out for amazing sheets. I mean, let's face it, if your bed feels cozy when you get into it you now a good night's sleep is a few eye winks away. But I will admit, I'm kind of a sheet snob. Much like … [Read more...]

Puro Audio Protection Headphones

Sample received. All opinions are my own. Being a fitness instructor and just a plain lover of music, I spend a lot of time listening to music of all types. A good set of headphones, in my opinion, is critical. I've tried all kinds from the ear bud types to the full on head set type. A friend started talking to me about the new Puro headphones that are volume limited and reduce the outside noise up to 80%. I was so excited when I got the chance … [Read more...]

American Girl Dolls Wellie Wishers Teach Girls How to Be Good Friends

Sample received. All opinions are my own. Little girls just love their dolls! When my daughter got her first American Girl doll she was in LOVE! Having a doll that looked like her and that she could wear the same outfit as her doll was just too good. She could even take her doll to the store to have her hair and nails done and pick from a wide variety of clothes and accessories to let her imagination come to life! I mean how could it get any … [Read more...]

Neon KYX Light Up Shoes

Sample received. All opinions are my own. Being a long time fitness instructor, I personally find it important to bring a sense of fun to the workout. My classes will tell you I'm a little wild and full of energy. Yes at times even crazy! LOL When I first saw these light up shoes I knew I had to give them a try in my Zumba classes. When they arrived, I couldn't wait to try them out. Now as a disclaimer, I am pretty rough on shoes so the … [Read more...]

Nutri Ninja® Ninja® BlendMax DUO™ with Auto-iQ Boost

Nutri Ninja® Ninja®BlendMax DUO™ with Auto-iQ Boost™ Sample Received. All opinions are my own. I was in need of a new blender when I was offered the chance to review the Nurti Ninja® Ninja® BlendMax DUO™. This blender put my old one to shame even when it was brand new! I've become a bit of a streamlined person these days and if something isn't somewhat multipurpose chances are it won't make the cut of being in my home. I just don't have all the … [Read more...]

Ninja Coffee Bar® Glass Carafe System

Ninja Coffee Bar® Glass Carafe System Sample received. All opinions are my own. I've always been the kind of person who loves the smell of coffee, but didn't care so much for the taste. It wasn't until I was terribly sleep deprived and at the end of my rope, I let a friend of mine talk me into trying a Starbucks Iced Caramel Macchiato. Say! I have to admit it wasn't so bad, but the price tag attached was steep to fall in love with it! When I … [Read more...]

Shark® 2-in-1 Blast & Scrub Steam Pocket Mop

Shark® 2-in-1 Blast & Scrub Steam Pocket Mop Sample received. All opinions are my own. I grew up watching my mom scrub and clean our kitchen floors on her hands and knees. She always preferred that method as it "gets things cleaner"! As I got older I found out exactly what she meant. Mops and other floor cleaners are nice so you don't have to bend down, but I found they never quite got the floor "clean". It was after having two kids I … [Read more...]

Shark Rocket Complete DuoClean Vacuum | #GIVEAWAY | ends 12/15

Shark Rocket Complete DuoClean Sample received. All opinions are my own. I am a mom of two little people and have a "slight" anal retentive nature...ok who am I kidding its a fairly big nature! Due to this lovely attribute I fight a daily battle with "fuzzies" and "stuff" on my floors. I've used many styles of vacuums in the past, each with their own pros and cons. In teaching my kids daily chores and cleaning up after themselves, … [Read more...]
