Learning Resources Buggy Balance Activity Kit Review

The girls have been back in school for about a month and they are loving it – although, at their new school, they do get more homework than before and that involves more time from all of us as the girls learn their new lessons and as their dad and I navigate helping them.  In Miss LadyBug’s class, they have done a few lessons on weights focusing on heavier than, lighter than and equal to – so when we received the Buggy Balance Measurement Activity Kit from Learning Resources for review, the timing could not have been better!

Operation Baby Shower Surprise

BABY-operation-surprise-baby-shower-smallWe all know how hard our service men and women work to serve and protect our country, and it is our duty as citizens to support the troops (and their families!). Many women living on military bases do not have the comfort and support of friends and family back home, which is especially difficult for them when they are expecting a new bundle of joy. They often miss out on typical experiences most moms-to-be look forward to – like baby showers! That's why we're started the Operation: Baby Shower Surprise campaign to salute military moms and support these women who are stationed overseas. Two amazing moms currently stationed in Germany at a U.S. base received the surprise of a lifetime when all the brands below came together and threw them an awesome baby shower complete with beautiful gifts! They EACH received 36 gifts! (Video coming soon of the moms opening their gifts – we will share.)

Meet the two expecting moms: Morgan who is having a baby boy and Baillie who is having a baby girl!

NOW, we want all moms to join in on the fun and enter for a chance to win a grand package giveaway of these 36 AMAZING baby/kids must-haves! There are tons of cool and easy ways to enter (see the Rafflecopter below) such as:

  1. posting a selfie on Facebook or Instagram of yourself (if you are a military mom) using #militarymoms OR
  2. posting a selfie of you with a military mom using the same hashtag. If you post a selfie in uniform you can earn even more points! OR
  3. If neither #1 or #2 applies to you, then just search #militarymoms on Facebook and/or Instagram and share another person's photo on social media (look for recent pics so you know it's likely part of Operation: Baby Shower Surprise). Make sure to include #militarymoms hashtag.
  4. And so many other ways to enter!

REMEMBER….the more points you earn the better chance you have to win! The Rafflecopter entry widget is below.

$100 Amazon Giveaway & a FREE Learning App for Kids!

Kid's Academy is all about helping children learn verbal, writing and math skills in an easy and fun manner. Apps such as 123 Tracing and Bingo ABC have been top-50 educational apps in the App Store, and Kid’s Academy has also brought the well-known stories and nursery rhymes The Three Little Pigs and Five Little Monkeys to life with interactive apps.
The simple interfaces of the apps allow children to take the reins and play on their own, but the sing-a-longs and other activities are perfect for parent or teacher engagement, as well. Research has shown that singing along with nursery rhymes has cognitive and physical benefits for children. Not only are children learning new words and the context in which to use them, but strengthening tongue and mouth muscles at an early age will help with pronunciation skills.

Portable Bluetooth Speaker from Havit Brings Big Sound Anywhere

As the girls get older, they are definitely coming into their own when it comes to pretty much everything, especially music!  They like to listen to their music when they are cleaning their rooms or just playing and I would prefer that they not use headphones or earbuds quite yet since they tend to turn up the sound.  Wireless, Bluetooth speakers are a great option for this, especially if you can find one for an affordable price!  Well, I found that with Havit!  Havit offers different wireless, Bluetooth speaker options and they sent me this great portable, bar speaker in exchange for my honest opinion!

Get Organized on Vacation with Travel Packing Cubes!

We recently returned from an amazing trip to Branson, Missouri where we spent five days exploring the beaches, mountains, caves, waterparks, amusement parks, wineries and more!  With such a vast array of events, we needed to bring a lot of different types of clothes and a lot of toiletries and accessories!  Three girls in the house means that we have a lot of stuff and little space to pack it in – so when we received the Evatex Travel Packing Cubes for review, I knew we had a winner! 

What did I think?

The Evatex Travel Packing Cubes come in four sizes and also come with a bonus shoe bag!  These packing cubes fit nicely into one another (like nesting dolls!) for storage, and also stack well with on another when full.  These packing cubes are sturdy, well-made and hold a ton!  What I liked was that I could assign each person in the house, a packing cube based on their needs for toiletries.  Of course, I had the biggest and was able to easily fit in my hair dryer, flat iron, makeup bag, shampoo, conditioner, toothbrush, toothpaste, lotions, face wash and a few other random items.  Hubby received the next size and packed it full with this toiletries including his electric razor, body wash and some of his running accessories and then the girls received the last two sizes  – one they filled with their bath products, hair things and lotions and the smallest one, they filled with their Littlest Pet Shop toys for ease of travel.

Mineral Eye Gel from Adovia Eliminates Puffy Under Eye Bags

I am finding that with being 30 for almost a year, the later nights are taking more and more of a toll on my face!  Seriously, before I could stay up until midnight without an issue, but now if I do, I can expect bags under my eyes all day long!  That is, until I started using Adovia mineral eye gel!  This easy to use mineral eye gel features Dead Sea Minerals, Vitamin E and Aloe Vera to help soothe and condition my most delicate skin.  I received the Adovia mineral eye gel in exchange for my honest opinion.

What did I think?

I have used many Adovia mineral products and have loved them as they feature many wonderful and natural ingredients.  While the mineral eye gel does feature a lot of the same wonderful Dead Sea minerals and other fabulous natural ingredients (I love Jojoba and Sweet Almond!), there are a few ingredients that are on my “caution” list, so I recommend that you definitely always check labels and decide what you are comfortable with!
