A New Approach to Capture Life’s Precious Moments with #meetBEMO by @Logitech

Bemo Camera

With the ever growing capability of social media to record and broadcast life’s big moments, there is the need to capture these events in the fastest, easiest way possible.  Most of us, including myself, are able to simply pull out our mobile phones and open the camera or video camera within the phone and ‘snap’ away.  This isn’t much of a challenge, and it seems to be the quick and easy method to capture these moments, but for users like myself, this often takes up a ton of memory on our mobile phones.  With the amount of videos I take on […]

Want to be a Hunger Hero?! #HungerHeroes

Be a Hunger Hero logo

Before you get all confused, I am working with Champions for Kids on two projects this summer.  That’s because this amazing organization, Champions for Kids is committed to and dedicated to making it simple to give children in local communities the resources they need to thrive.   I always love ways to foster a habit of giving in my children.  It’s a mantra that I live by and try to share every day.  That’s why I love Champions for Kids, their core values are simple, yet profound, and drive their efforts to “mobilize millions” to help children — All children should have: Someone […]

So you’re getting ready to send your kids back to school. Moms and Dads everywhere are beginning to tackle those dreaded school supply lists that have been sent home for the kids. Everything seems like its in order and you think your child is ready for the first day back to school, but there may be one very important step that you are forgetting. Your child’s eyesight. Did you know that annual eye exams are as important to your overall health as your yearly physical exam?  Back in the days, you only went for an eye exam if you had […]

One mile at a time… #MiracleMarathon

I Joined the Journey #MiracleMarathon

It has been a goal of mine to run a marathon.  Well not just any marathon, the Disney Princess Marathon.  Yes it’s a goal.  Ask me what I’ve done to reach that goal?  NOTHING.  It’s rather pathetic.  I was a little more determined after running the 5K at the Disney Social Media Moms Conference this year, but still, even with my husband printing out the Disney Princess Marathon Training guide, I didn’t even complete one day of training. I am proud of myself, as of late, I’m actually going to the gym without any prodding from the husband more often […]

Making Packed Lunches Fun with PlanetBox

planetbox

Packing lunch for children can often be a daunting task. Between their picky appetites and their indecisiveness, satisfying my children’s unique palates can sometimes take a lot of creativity. My boys now enjoy having what we call “fun foods” to satisfy their hungry bellies. What we have discovered in my home is that the success of a particular meal is dependant upon the actual shapes of foods, rather than the food itself. For a four year old, the more interesting the shape if his sandwich, the more likely he is to eat it. Now, with his new PlanetBox Rover lunchbox, […]

Living Effortlessly with Walmart Effortless Meals

share_a_coke

I fondly always call my family as my zoo.  With 4 kids and all with very busy lives, the one thing I look forward to each day is sitting down with them for dinner.  It’s the only time, if at all, that the entire family gets together just to pause and catch up.  During the summer time, despite school being out, the kids seem busier than ever.  Between camp and all the activities I have planned for them like actually going to the zoo, the library, museums, the beach, etc., By the time mealtime hits, I’m plum exhausted.  I’m very fortunate […]

Getting to Know @BLUEMANGROUP

blueman

It’s always important to show your children how special they are. I often feel that having some one on one time with each child individually can be beneficial in making your kids feel secure, and loved. My older son loves having one on one time with his parents and we try hard to make that precious time with him extra special. Last month, my family was invited to check out Blue Man Group in the city. Initially, my son was more excited then all of us at having an opportunity to not only go to his favorite place in the […]

Not Just Another Blogger Conference, It’s Blogger Bash! #BBNYC

HexBugs

If you’ve been blogging for a few years, gone to many blogger conferences as I have, you’re probably over the Blogging 101 and other how to start tutorials.  You might be wondering what the next evolution of your blog may be and if there is anything else for you to learn at a Blogger Conference other than Blogging for Dummies.  I am of the schooling where the learning never ends, but the last few conferences I’ve attended left me wondering what was out there for someone who’s been blogging for as many years as I have been.   That’s where Blogger […]
