#LilGiftList Monkey Jabber GPS Watch Giveaway!

Truth be told I am a helicopter mom in all aspects of the word – I would watch my children every second of every day if I could. But the truth is, sometimes in life things come up like field trips, play dates and simple park play that can keep our children out of direct reach. This year in particular, my oldest had a class overnight field trip and I held him back because of the simple reason that communication was not allowed. Had he had smart watch like the…

#LilGiftList PlasmaCar Giveaway!

If you haven’t already come across a PlasmaCar in your lifetime you are truly missing out.

#LilGiftList Instax SHARE SP-2 Giveaway!

Capturing those holiday moments are always important and Fujifilm makes it easier with their new Instax SHARE SP-2 Printer! Who ever invented the idea of printing photos straight from your mobile phone is a genius in my opinion – I mean, I am already obsessed with the idea of instant photos with a camera but the reality of it is that I am always attached to my cell phone and sometimes photos from there get posted to social media and hardly ever actually printed. With the new Instax SHARE SP-2…

#LilGiftList Kite Flyer Finn & Rockabilly Lottie Giveaway!

With so many dolls on the market, it really is hard to distinguish which are appropriate roll models when it comes to our children. In our family, both my boys fully enjoyed playing with dolls and the imaginative play that goes along with having them. I did however notice that a lot of the tinier dolls appear very ‘mature’ and sometimes unrealistic in terms of clothing, makeup and body proportions. That’s why I was thrilled to receive the Lottie dolls for review and to giveaway to one of my fans.…

#LilGiftList Little Live Pets My Dream Kitten, Cuddles Giveaway!

When I was little my parents brought home the most adorable white kitten, she was fluffy and perfect just like the Cottonelle commercials circa 1985 featured. I loved that cat so much until I held her…lets just say FUR EVERYWHERE! Her shedding was horrible – she left her mark everywhere she visited and it became a nuisance to everyone who would visit. Imagine eating fur in your meals, wearing it on your clothing and finding it in your bed – gross! BUT she was gorgeous – in fact we tried…

Curious Children – The Benefits Of Technology {Contest Too}

If your children are anything like mine, they ask over a million (sometimes more) questions a day and on average expect some sort of realistic explanation to things you have never heard of. Am I right? Google has changed my life, or so to say… Seems we can never get through a show or a simple task without me turning to my trusted friend for advice. As you may already know, Google DOES have all the answers! From simple dinner ideas, to Halloween costumes to those tired and tested questions…

A few more days and the kids are back to school (already) and it seems like there is never enough time to finish their lengthy list of demands before it happens.

Staples is just that- a place to full fill all of your back to school needs, product lists, and still leave time for…
