Snug Organics + #Giveaway

Disclosure: I received two henley sets for review from Snug Organics. All opinions are my own.

I can't believe that the weather is summer-like, reaching the 80's-90's in the daytime. Sometimes it's stifling in the house even though we have the air conditioner running at night. Snug Organics has created a fantastic henley Pajama set ($28) in 100% organic cotton to keep kiddos cozy yet cool while sleeping.


Summertime Mocktail | Strawberry Cooler {Recipe}

I enjoy food with a good kick, but my love for spice doesn't end with food.  I love drinks that pack a little heat also.  During my pregnancy I couldn't drink some of my favorite cocktails so everywhere I went I would look at the mocktail menu and ask the bartenders to add a little bit of my own preferences of flavor such as mint, but especially a few chilies so that I could enjoy these mocktails without feeling deprived.  


Twigtale Personalized Book + #Giveaway

Disclosure: My cousin received a Twigtale book for review. All opinions are her own.

I recently had my third child, so I was looking for a way to help my older two ease into the transition with a new baby joining our family, so I decided to create a book on the Twigtale website.  The book is called “I Have A New Sibling” and it is designed to help children adjust to the changes that come along with a new sibling.  When I went to create our book, I found the Twigtale website to be very user friendly.  I have used other sites in the past, but Twigtale seemed to be so simple for me to quickly upload my photos and put my book together.  They gave me a list of what photos I would need to complete the “I Have A New Sibling” book, such as a picture of baby crying, a picture of baby sleeping, etc.  So I went through our photos and found everything I needed; there were only a couple that I had to actually take new pictures to fulfill.  All of the books on the Twigtale site tell a story, so most of the text is already completed, and I just had to fill in my children’s names, but customers are able to personalize to some degree.



Disney Frozen Queen Elsa Paper Dress {DIY} #ScottValue #PMedia #ad

This shop is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group® and Scott Brand, but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #Scottvalue http://my-disclosur.es/OBsstV

Although we were late to start, Kenzie has jumped onto the Frozen bandwagon with gusto and has been asking for all things Frozen related. However, since I am not about to pay a king's ransom for the highly sought out Elsa dress on eBay, I decided I would try my hand at making one using Scott Towels and Scott Extra Soft bath tissue from Kmart.

Nenuco Bath Time @nenucoUSA

Disclosure: I received the Nenuco Bath Time for review. All opinions are my own.

The first thing out of Kenzie's mouth when she saw the Nenuco Bath Time box was "Uh huh, this is what I've been talking about for a looooong time". She couldn't wait for me to take her new baby out of the box and asked if it was bath time. Since it was only 5pm, she had to hold off until after dinner to get her baby squeaky clean.

Hapari Swimwear + #Giveaway

Disclosure: I received a swimsuit for review from Hapari. All opinions are my own.

I can't believe how quickly this year is passing by and it's time to hit the beach again here in Southern California. Since I have not lost all the baby weight from Mason (still!), I am not quite confident to rock the bikini but still want to look fashionable and hot so I found some cute styles at Hapari. 

Hapari believes that every woman should look and feel beautiful while being comfortable and confident in quality swimwear. No matter what your body type or size, you can find something that will be flattering to your figure at Hapari.


Perfect for Grilling Season | Chimichuri Sauce {Recipe}

With the arrival of spring, the weather has been very conducive to grilling, which my family really enjoys and I find easy to prep.  One of our favorite things to do is to grill fish or vegetables and pair it with our favorite chimichuri sauce.  It’s quick, simple, and packed with flavor for a quick and healthy meal.  


Talk to a Doctor with No Wait Time for Free

Tracking PixelThis is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of American Well.

I really get frustrated when trying to schedule an appointment with my doctor, especially when they usually have availability only during my peak work hours. If and when I do get an appointment that is semi-close to the usual lunch hour, the travel time plus wait time (in addition to the appointment) makes it very unappealing to even go. Even my OB appointments were 10 minutes maximum (after the 30-45 minute wait time) so I really don't understand why the entire doctor visit isn't more streamlined to appease patients who actually have scheduled appointments.
