Healthy Steps with Pediped + #Giveaway

Disclosure: My friend Rita received a pair of shoes for review. All opinions are her own.

I love shoe shopping and have always felt that shoes can make a huge difference in a person’s entire look. I also know, as many women do, that the wrong shoes can be intolerable torture. With kids I have learned that what is most important is functionality, comfort and health. Finding good shoes is a difficult task especially for my little one’s growing feet. Knowing how much difference shoes make on lasting health effects, I always want my kids to have good footwear, but I never like to compromise the look. With Pediped I don’t have to. Pediped are stylish shoes that fit well and take healthy foot development into account in their designs.

DIY Friendly Ghost Candy Pouch | Fun Crafts with Mom

Now that our house is filled with a massive quantity of candy that might not quite make it until Halloween, I thought it would be fun for the kids to share the love with their friends by whipping up a little pouch for easy giving. Somehow in the past few weeks, Mason has been scared of "monsters" and it's very effective in getting him to listen when misbehaving (yeah I'm cruel like that because he's entered terrible 3 stage?). So to help ease into the spirit of spookiness, a friendly ghost is called for.

October is an exciting month in our house as we prepare to celebrate one of our favorite holidays: Halloween! We have been emerged in decorating our home, picking out costumes, planning the multiple visits to the pumpkin patch and carving out our pumpkins. October is jam packed with Halloween activities from school events to weekend events with the family. However, nothing is as important in our house as the trick or treating and the candy, of course. My kids love dressing up and look forward to all the candy they collect on Halloween night. Even more my entire family loves picking out candy for our house. The kids love picking out festive treats and not just the average candy bar so it’s no surprise that Peeps and Peeps & Company is the candy of choice for our home.

Step into Fall with Livie & Luca + #Giveaway

Disclosure: I received the following for review. All opinions are my own.

Is it really October already? It really is true that once you start growing older that time passes by in a blur. On the other hand, children live in the moment and life is good each and every day. Livie and Luca has definitely captured the playfulness with rich colors in their Fall collection of shoes and the kids were excited to check them out.

Pumpkin Spice Krispie Treats + .@SweetWorks #Giveaway #SweetworksAutumn #ad

Disclosure: This is a Fashionista Event and a promotional item was provided to me by Sweetworks. Hosts for this event are Still Blonde after all these Years and ModlyChic.

I can't believe that it is already Fall. Since I live in Southern California, we haven't yet experienced the changing of leaves or cooler weather...yet. However, the delivery of a box of sweet treats from SweetWorks has put me in the mood to whip up a favorite of the kids with inspiration from the season.

Gourmet Homemade Meals Made Easy with @Handpick Smart Groceries + $10 Off Promo Code!

Disclosure: This is a partnered post with Handpick. All opinions are my own.

I love watching the Food channel as well as finding beautiful food on Pinterest. I also have a binder of ripped out recipes that I eventually want to make if I ever become a SAHM. I really don't have the time to go to the grocery store and grab all the ingredients of a certain recipe only to find myself forgetting something or with spices/vegetables in bulk to never be used again. That's why I am a new fan of Handpick. They do almost all the work for you and you get to take the credit!
