Back to School with Staples

IMG_20130821_112106_133

We love Staples!  It’s one of our MUST stops during the back-to-school season.  I love all the bins filled with not just amazing deals, but also amazing and cute selections!  They’ve got you covered with everything from basic supplies to computers.  I recently got schooled on how to select a new computer by their knowledgeable staff.  For a solid notebook for back to school, the HP Pavilion 11 TouchSmart was highly recommended to fit our family’s needs. It’s the most affordable HP touch-enabled notebook and is great for work and play. It’s also super affordable at $399.99.  I was eying […]

A Healthy Start to the School Year with #OTCSafety

IMG_3804

With the start of the new school year also comes a season of mixed emotions for my family.  We’re all excited to start the new school year, but heading back to school often means a plethora of germs being spread around, and while being sick is no fun for anyone, its not uncommon to be battling colds and infections in the first few weeks back to school. I’m especially nervous with the Little Mister’s first time in a school setting.  If history tells me anything, I can expect a few colds and infections while he acclimates to his new environment.  […]

Back to School with Sonicare Power Up!

IMG_1012

Aiming for a healthy start to the new school  year, we’ve teamed up with Sonicare!  Oral health has always been super important in our family.  I’ve had my share of dental issues from pregnancy induced severe enamel loss to countless cavities and root canals — not to mention thousands of dollars — which lead to an intense fear of the dentist.  My sweet tooth never helped the situation.  While my new discovery and love of nitrous gas, which now I must have included in every dental visit to relieve anxiety, I’ve learned that proper oral care can go a long […]

Ending Child Hunger Starts Now, with a code! #ChildHunger

CHEHBloggerBadge

During the school year, 21.5 million children rely on free or reduced-price meals to help them keep from going hungry. When school is out, only 2.3 million children participate in the Summer Food Service Program (SFSP). This means there are millions of children at an increased risk of hunger during the summer. You can help by purchasing participating ConAgra Foods products and entering those codes to trigger meal donations. I am so thrilled to be a part of this social media movement where at Blissdom alone, tweeting efforts with the #ChildHunger hashtag, helped us reach a total donation of 186,426 […]

Instant Gratification with eBay Now

Just in time for Back to School, I’ve discovered an amazing service called eBay Now!  The service, currently available to shoppers in San Francisco, San Jose, the Bay Area Peninsula and New York City, including Queens and Brooklyn, lets you order products from a local store and have them delivered to your door by a valet in as little as an hour.   The first few days back at school can get pretty crazy with getting acclimated to the new classroom, new classmates, back to school routine, start of homework, etc.,  Even the best prepared moms and dads don’t always remember […]

Back to School with Fruit of the Loom

20130806-IMG_1001

As we get ready for Back to School, it brings back many memories of my childhood.  I remember right before school started it was a yearly ritual to get a new backpack as well as starting out fresh with new socks and undergarments — the basics!  Yes, my parents were very practical but it’s a traditional I love to continue and Back to School shopping is always fun for our family.  With my daughter entering 1st grade in September, this year’s Back to School shopping is very special.  With bigger responsibility this coming year, she has had so much fun […]

5 Tips for Study Space Zen

regency

With my daughter entering 1st grade this fall, it’s her first year of serious studying.  I’m a firm believer that having a proper place to study can effect a child’s mindset on school and studying.  That’s why this summer I’ve dedicated my time and money to build my daughter the perfect zen study space. Finding the right space –  A child needs a consistent and set space to study.  Somewhere he/she can keep her school books, notes and study materials all in one place.  The kitchen table may suffice occasionally, but having your own desk and space is essential in […]

Splish Splash! Fun in our own backyard!

IMG_20130629_143247_884

 It’s hard to believe summer is almost over!  That’s not to say there isn’t time left to still enjoy ourselves!  What I have enjoyed most this summer is enjoying all the amazing activities right in our own backyard!  From exploring the Jersey Shore (#STTS) to Coney Island (#ConeyComeback), which have both amazingly bounced back from the storm to fun jaunts like our favorite Bronx Zoo and new favorites like Splish Splash!  I had no idea this little gem was right in our own backyard, Long Island! Just a short trip out to Riverhead, where we’ve gone plenty of times (to […]
