Screen Shot 2012-07-16 at 9.11.16 PM

What I love about living a mobile world is that I always have my mobile phone with me.  It’s a handy thing to have in an emergency.  While it’s always best to seek professional medical experience,  here are some apps that can help save your life or someone you love’s life until help can arrive Pocket First Aid & CPR by the American Heart Association is an  iOS and Android app for $1.99.  Very similar to the above app, it is updated with the AHA new guidelines for CPR.  What I love is it holds medical profiles for your entire family, it is handy if […]

DEALS & STEALS: Honest Shampoo + Body Wash

Honest Shampoo + BodyWash

One of my favorite brands is Honest Co.  I simply love it for the kids and have recently gone completely HONEST in our home.  Word on the streets has it that Honest Co products can be found in Target, Nordstroms and even warehouse stores like Costco but I have been a monthly subscriber since the company started.  I’ve found products are still cheaper with a subscription and with so many choices in products, choosing 5 a month is a tough one, making the subscription a no-brainer for our family. Have I considered purchasing at a warehouse store?  Not once, until […]

Simple Teachings about Simple Giving #SIMPLEGiving

© SUZANNE M. CHAN 2013

I’ve been having an ongoing lesson with my children on being charitable.  If there is anything that I want my children to learn, it’s to be charitable.  In recent years I’ve learned that being charitable reaps multitudes of rewards.  I am a strong believer in karma and what you put out is what you get in return.  Whenever I get the chance to impart the wisdom of charity in its many forms, I accept it. It’s so simple to be charitable and Champions for Kids has partnered up with Dole to encourage community projects across the country benefiting children in […]

Are you ready for the New School Year?!

20140830-730

For the last 10 months I have been tutoring an amazing 7-year-old, aka the Little Miss, who just needed a little extra encouragement to get her work done and work to her fullest potential. Much of the work we did was homework handouts, spelling words, and reading. Once school was out, it was my job to figure out how to keep the learning fun. I was grateful to discover the new game “Are You Ready For 2nd Grade?” which kept the spirit of summer with a sprinkling of learning. I don’t know who was more excited, the tutor or the […]

Lands’ End Passes the Test with Flying Colors #FirstDayFaves

Lands End BTS 3

Over the last few years, Lands End had become one of my absolute favorite brands.  For my family, it’s not just about style but also quality and Lands’ End is quality.  With 4 very active children, I need clothing and items that can withstand anything.  They are my go-to for Back to School basics. The Little Miss wears uniforms to school and  I stock up for the entire year with their School Uniform Girls’ Perfect Fit Plain Front Stain Resistant Chino Pants, School Uniform Girls’ Blend Chino Skort and their sweet Peter Pan collared shirts, both short and long sleeve.  With almost […]

Back to Basics and Back to School with Fruit of the Loom #TGIBTS

fruitofloomBTS

Going back to school is always an exciting time of the year.  My kids are always filled with anticipation, endless questions about what the new year will bring.  This year is particular is huge for my Marcus.  It will be his very first year at full-day school.  He is simply beyond excited.  He has watched his sister go to school since the day he was born, dropping her off at daycare, starting Pre-K.  He has walked the school halls many times, wishing for the day he was big old enough to be in full-day school just like his sister.  Over […]

REVIEW: The Too Smart Joovy Too Fold #joovycool

Joovy TooFold

I’ve tested (played) with my fair share of strollers and after awhile the things that set them apart is few and far between.  Maybe a little difference here and there. It’s a wonder when a stroller truly makes you step back and say, now that is different.  Cue in the Joovy TooFold.   We’ve been longtime fans of Joovy and their beautifully intuitively designed products and the Joovy TooFold doesn’t disappoint.  I don’t mind a stroller that’s a looker and the Joovy TooFold is definitely a looker.  I’ve been stopped by many people asking me which stroller is this, and I’ve […]

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 […]
