I have a sponsored partnership with Deliv. All thoughts are my own.
Here’s the situation. My husband works crazy hours and I blog/ social media consulting/va work. I have 4 kids who either work or do sports and after school activities. My life tends to be really crazy. I had an amazing opportunity fall into my lap for buying a house. When I sat down to see if it was something that was possible, I realized that it isn’t. My budget [...]

Encouraging a Child’s Natural Creativity

Creative Galaxy, teaching my preschool art techiniques

I have always been artsy and crafty. It is one of the things that the kids and I do most together. We have bins and bins of random art materials. My kids can spend hours, quietly, making random crafts or just cutting up papers and gluing them onto other paper. And they absolutely beam when they show off their art work.
We recently discovered Creative Galaxy, which is produced by Out of the Blue Enterprises with Angela Santomero, who produced Blue’s [...]

Way to Get Reluctant Readers to Read

Way to Get Reluctant Readers to Read

I have received a copy of Ripley’s Believe It or Not! for review. All thoughts are my own.

Encouraging Kids Towards STEM

Encouraging Kids Towards Stem- science, technology, engineering and math

This is a sponsored review with Mums the Word Network and Creator Box . All opinions are my own.
Did you know that many kids, especially girls, say that they like science and math, but very few pursue STEM as they grow up. STEM is science, technology, engineering and math. For me, with my girls, but it applies to all kids, I get really upset thinking that they will not pursue the sciences. I want my girls to want to be [...]

Collage from Lego Land NY, Lego City

I received tickets to visit LegoLand. All thoughts are my own.
When you think of things that make kids exceedingly happy, there are a few toys that are classic. Kids love Barbies, stuffed animals, puzzles and Legos. I think of all of the Legos that I have stepped on over the years, and all the hours spend sitting there building and Legos are always a fond memory.
When I first heard that there were places that were just dedicated to Lego and [...]

Thank you Nutiva Coconut Oil for sponsoring this DIY Beauty Craft. All thoughts are my own
A few weeks ago, my husband and I were able to have a relaxing day at the spa and one of the services we received was a milk and honey wrap. This was a warm oil, and some other goodies, mixed with sugar that as they massaged it into our skin it also exfoliated. It completely melted away all of my stress and left my [...]
