Regular sleep routines are important for people of all ages. The hugOne sleep monitor allows you to track the sleep phases of your entire family as well as the temperature, humidity, and air quality in your home to ensure an overall healthy environment. #sponsored
Thank you to Seven Hugs for sponsoring the following article. All opinions are my own. As a mother of two young children, I understand the importance of sleep for growing and grown-up bodies alike. Bedtime in my house, however, is often a struggle. My four-year-old daughter is supposed to go to sleep at 8 o’clock […]

The Duck and the New York Aquarium Pillar Coral features a rubber duck on a model of pillar coral at the New York Aquarium on Coney Island in Brooklyn. At the beginning of 2013, I made a resolution to post a weekly photograph of a rubber duck. Because my daughter loved rubber duckies so much, […]

As a fan of LED Christmas lights, I am quite pleased with my new strand of multi-color globe outdoor solar LED lights from LTROP. I especially appreciate the longer lead wire, which allows me to better place the solar panel in full sunlight. After initially charging the solar panel fully for 12 hours, the battery lasts well into the night. The garden stake secures the solar panel into the ground. Hanging the lights was fairly easy, and I placed mine around my small Japanese maple tree. The strand offers two lighting modes, which allows me to customize my light display. The solar panel charges the battery during the day and the built-in sensor turns on the light automatically at dusk, so I never have to worry about turning the lights on or off. If you are a fan of Christmas lights and are shopping for a solar powered option, I definitely recommend the strand of LTROP globe outdoor solar LED lights available in multi-color, warm white, and white. #sponsored
I love decorating my home, inside and out, with lights throughout the year. Rather than running extension cords throughout my yard during the summer months, I have recently made the switch to a few solar powered LED strand. I like to decorate a few trees and bushes in my yard with some twinkle lights, which […]

If you are shopping for a new two-piece #swimwear that offers a little extra coverage, I highly recommend the retro high-waisted bikini swimsuit from Fitglam. Available in three color options and eight sizes, the bikini offers a vintage design with a classic 1950s look. I chose the black top and red bottom in the US 6-8, which fits me almost perfectly. Do follow the Fitglam chart when choosing the correct size. I love the high waist and ruffled front of the bottoms, which cover the tops of my thighs, the bottom of my booty, and my belly. The halter bra-top allows me to easily nurse my sun while at the pool. The Fitglam retro high-waisted bikini swimsuit is my new favorite two-piece swimming suit! #sponsored

If your little girl likes to dress like a princess in poufy pink dresses, I very much recommend the short-sleeve princess dress costume from #MagicTown. The dress fits little princess in sizes as small as 2T (33 inches and 24 pounds) and as big as 6X (52 inches and 54 pounds). I received the size 5, which fits my daughter with a little room to grow. My daughter loves her new poufy dress, especially the twirly skirt. She also love the pink color and the glittery taffeta on the skirt. I found even stitching on all the seams and no loose strings, attesting to the quality. My daughter absolutely loves dressing like a fairy princess in her new Magic Town short-sleeve princess dress costume.
My daughter wants to be a fairy princess. She also loves twirly dresses and the color pink. Pink twirly dresses that make her look like a fairy princess are her absolute favorite. Thus, when recently offered the chance to review a short-sleeve princess dress costume from Magic Town in exchange for my honest opinion, I […]

If you are searching for a book about colors for your toddler or preschooler, I highly recommend Duck & Goose Colors by Tad Hills. I love the simple language, the brightly colored illustrations, and the use of familiar characters and objects to teach the basic colors of the rainbow. Duck & Goose Colors is an excellent book for teaching infants, toddlers, and preschoolers about color.
My preschooler daughter knows her colors well, but, as a huge fan of the Duck & Goose series by Tad Hills, I had to add a copy of the most recent title, Duck & Goose Colors, to our ever growing home library collection. Luckily for my daughter, my aunt bought her the board book last […]

My kids and I love heading outside to the park during the warmer months of the year. I am also quite serious about sun protection. Although I prefer to stay inside during peak sun hours, sometimes my kids simply need to get out of the house. When recently offered the chance to review the portable pop-up beach tent sun shelter from Sportneer in exchange for my honest opinion, I eagerly accepted the opportunity. #ad

If you are a gardener who is interested in heirloom seeds, I highly recommend the #EcoFarmsOnline organic vegetable heirloom seeds. My kit contained tomato, carrot, pepper, broccoli, lettuce, red onion, eggplant, corn, celery, and cucumber seeds. For the amount of different seeds, I consider the price of the kit comparable and reasonable. The open-pollinated, organic, non-GMO heirloom seeds are hand selected and hand packed to ensure the best seeds with a high germination rate. I am especially excited about the brandywine tomato seeds because my family and I love fresh tomatoes. I will planting some of the cooler weather seeds in containers in a few weeks so that I have fresh produce this winter, and I will save the remaining seeds for my garden for the spring. #sponsored
I am an avid gardener. In the past, I have tried my hand at sweet corn, pumpkins, watermelon, cucumber, squash, zucchini, strawberries, beets, basil, cilantro, tomatoes, peppers, and more. I have grown plants from seeds and used seedlings purchased from garden stores to start my fruit and vegetable beds. Sadly, the weather this summer has […]

While exploring the alphabet with my daughter during homeschool preschool last spring, she and I decorated a simple printable for each letter from A to Z. At the end of the alphabet lessons, I bound the crafts together into a book so that my daughter could continue reviewing her ABCs.

If you are an avid baker or prepare a lot of food in your oven, I highly recommend the #EasyRoll parchment paper by Boolik. Made with FDA-approved material, the durable parchment paper is ideal for cooking, baking, sushi rolling, food wrapping, and more. The roll measures 15 inches by 33 feet for a total of 42 square feet, which allows me to cover an entire baking sheet, bottom and sides, with a single sheet. This parchment paper also has extra layers of silicone that make the surface non-stick. Cookies, vegetables, and other baked foods slide right off without sticking to my baking sheet! I finally love that I can use a single sheet this paper multiple times, which makes cookie baking so much more convenient. I therefore highly recommend the Boolik EasyRoll parchment paper! #sponsored
I love baking. During the holidays, I bake dozens of cookies for my family and friends. I also enjoy baking fresh vegetables for my family. Recently I discovered the tastiness of baked chick peas. I, however, do not enjoy scraping burnt food off of my baking sheets. I do use healthy oils sometimes when cooking […]

Magic Cube Review
I am always looking for new toys for my kids, especially toys that require thinking and creativity. When recently offered the chance to review a Magic Cube from UROPHYLLA in exchange for my honest opinion, I eagerly accepted the opportunity. The Magic Cube currently costs $6.89 on Amazon, which I consider quite reasonable. Other similar cube puzzles cost around the same price, with most priced a few dollars more.
