H2O Plus Oasis Body- The Ultimate Skin Experience

H2O Plus Oasis Body- The Ultimate Skin Experience

Last week I had the privilege to attend the 2014 Disney Social Media Moms Conference in Disneyland (yes, land, as in California!)! That’s a BIG deal for us East Coasters :) I took my oldest son with me along with my Mom and we really had such a great time! Exhausting, but fun. After a long day in the parks, I looked forward to coming back to our room at the Disneyland Hotel to take a … Read entire article »

The Perfect Valentine’s Gift for Moms (under $50!!!)

The Perfect Valentine’s Gift for Moms (under $50!!!)

**I received an Essio Aromatherapy Shower Starter Kit to facilitate this review. All thoughts and opinions are my own. ** Ladies, Valentine’s Day is around the corner and chances are your spouse/so haven’t got a clue as far as gifts are concerned. Or maybe you’re on a tight budget these days, like so many people are. Flowers are mucho $$ and usually not the best quality at this time of year and chocolate will totally derail … Read entire article »

We Heart Sparklehearts Hair Detangler

We Heart Sparklehearts Hair Detangler

When I was a little girl, I had long curly hair.  Except most of the time instead of looking like Shirley Temple, I looked more like Helena Bonham Carter as Mrs. Lovett.  My mom would tame my mane with a leave-in conditioner, or “detangler”. Now, I have my own curly girly with beautiful ringlets that get knotty easily and I went looking at my favorite natural children’s lines for a decent detangler with no luck. So, … Read entire article »

Splish, Splash Baby Doll’s Taking a Bath

Splish, Splash Baby Doll’s Taking a Bath

Toddlers seem to just love to play in the water. In the bath, at the sink, or running through the sprinkler, getting wet is tons of fun. Like many little girls, my daughter has also grown very attached to her dolls. She loves the cloth ones and does not want to put them away while she plays in the water. So, the Tidoo Lutin Bright Doll Corolle sent us has become a favorite around here anytime … Read entire article »

Pretty in Pink: Win the New Pink Boon Flo and Bug Pod

Pretty in Pink: Win the New Pink Boon Flo and Bug Pod

Babyproofing experts recommend putting a faucet cover over the bathtub spout to protect your baby’s head from bumps and burns.   When baby got too big to bathe in the sink, I bought the original Boon Flo spout cover ($14.99).  There were cheaper options, but I picked the Boon Flo because it easily accomodated the shower pull and looked more grown up than the popular Elmo and cartoon character faucet covers. With its spring grip, the Flo was … Read entire article »

Make a Splash

Make a Splash

Imagine a toy that is reusable, suitable for toddlers, preschoolers, and school-aged children, rolls up for storage, and inspires creativity without any mess–and you’ll have Aquadoodle.  My daughter will draw all day long, but she always wants a clean page.  We save a few of her paintings, but mainly she just enjoys doodling. Since she is not attached to any of her masterpieces quite yet, it seems a shame to fill page after page, wasting … Read entire article »
