National Lighthouse Day!

August 7th- National Lighthouse Day

I wanted to start filling my blog with a bit of other content! It might be experimental, it might be something that I continue with. I have to test things to see what works, and what doesn’t. I want to start writing about some of our “National Day’s” and “International Days”. For example today is technically the 10th of August, and today is National S’mores Day so I will be doing some things with the kids that revolve around S’mores and will be posting the content later this week!

ACURITE Gift Guide


You might be saying to yourself “It’s August already?”, well if that’s the case you’re certainly not alone. Many of us are asking ourselves the same question and wondering what we’re going to do when the summer fades into fall and winter is upon us! Winter can only mean one thing for us… the holidays are coming, again! I feel like we just settled down from the hustle and bustle of the holidays. Our bank accounts are still suffering, and here we sit realizing its coming upon us yet again, sooner than we’d like.

Cool Gear International for Kids

Cool_Gear_logo You maybe familiar with the brand Cool Gear International, they specialize in making products to keep your food, and beverages cold. My children naturally followed in my footsteps and developed an addiction to water bottles, cups, tumblers. As a family we own way to many to actually admit to, but they are all “needed”. The need factor all depends on who you ask, and we don’t ask my husband lol. Though we have a lot of water bottles I couldn’t resist reviewing some of their cute and convenient products for the kids.

Build-A-Base from BeachBUB- Make any Patio Umbrella a Beach Umbrella


My summer has been way more busy than I ever imagined it would be. August has now arrived and I can’t begin to tell you the amount of things going on this month. I have birthday’s up the wazoo that includes my daughters and mine. I also have my anniversary to celebrate in there as well. If that wasn’t enough we have the oh so fun school shopping as well as other family and friend planned activities before school starts… EARLY I might add. Why they are starting school BEFORE Labor Day is beyond me, and besides the point. Anyways the point IS, is that I’ve been super busy, and for the sake of this review I had to take some short cuts! While short cuts were made, I promise you you’ll still get the very best, and as always HONEST review from me. Continue reading

Rollors Outdoor Game #Gamenight


Over the last several years my husband and I have become the host for game night! While we love the traditional family/friend game nights with board games, or cards we wanted to extend our horizons and look more into outdoor games. We purchased a house in May, and have a wonderful backyard for the family and friends to visit in. We felt that an exciting outdoor game was missing from the scene so I went on a hunt for some fun and exciting games to play. I cam across Rollors and felt they would be a great way to get the family and friends up and active this summer! Continue reading

Moonjar- Save, Share and Spend


If you’re a parent you maybe
all to familiar with the typical saving routine of a piggy bank for your children. I’ve had one for each of my children since before they were born, and I’ve always wondered to myself what would or should they do with the money in it. What if they wanted to purchase something, but I wanted them to learn the ethics of saving money. Those are all kinds of questions we as parents ask ourselves when it comes to teaching our children about the concept of money.

A little Honesty about Honest Tea

honest_tea_logo_detailThe drink of the summer here in my house is tea, or lemonade. It’s be really hot here in New York, and while I love my water, I need variety. I fell in love with Honest Tea about a year ago when I picked one up at the store to try. I had heard of them, but never tried them and I am really glad I did! I am a huge fan of their Raspberry Tea! It’s not overly sweet, it’s actually perfect for my liking. When I contacted Honest Tea to review I was informed they had some new unsweetened tea flavors for me to try. While I’d never had their unsweetened tea, I figured I’d give them a try! Continue reading
