Recently, I received a little package of goodies from the Company Store.  I received the Newport Stripe Beach Towel (currently on sale for $34, normally 37) and this cute little girls Ladybugs Tote Bag from Company Kids ($39). Definitely did not know that the Company Store sold beach towels and other beach-related items as I would have normally … [Read more...]

So I took part in this cool challenge with Downy - testing out the Downy Difference when doing my laundry.  I was already a huge fan of Downy Unstopables which add an amazing smell to your fresh laundry that I'm always grateful for. (I especially love it with my workout clothes.  Nothing better than putting on a sports bra that you know is going to … [Read more...]

Genius.  That's what I thought when I got the email asking me to take part in this campaign for International Delight.  The email suggested adding something for Mom at the kids' lemonade stand this summer - Iced Coffee!  So smart!  I had to laugh too because my friends and I used to joke that we were going to start one of those roving food cart … [Read more...]

Love KIND bars! My favorite is Dark Chocolate Sea Salt. KIND has a brand new bar that I was psyched to try - Dark Chocolate Chili Almond. Again with the dark chocolate and nuts! Twist my arm! KIND sent me over a couple of samples and man, these have a bit of a kick! Great for an afternoon snack and I don't know what it is about spice but it's … [Read more...]

Earlier in June, I wrote about Vaseline's Spray & Go Moisturizer.  I continue to use and love it for the efficiency factor.  You can literally spray on your lotion with no need to spend time spreading it on - it goes on easily, quickly and with a non greasy feeling.  You can literally spray it on, pull a pair of pants on and go! Today I'm … [Read more...]

Sometimes there's just that person on your list who has everyone. In fact, maybe it's my "I have too much cr&p in my house" attitude but lately I'm all about giving gifts that are either gift cards or something that isn't going to take up a significant amount of space. Or something that anyone can enjoy that's disposable - like FOOD! Most … [Read more...]

This one hit my inbox this week and I was all swooning and trying to hatch a devious plan to buy a bunch of these pieces without hubby noticing it on the credit card. Lilly Pulitzer has several new pieces this week including these. I want them all. Lilly Pulitzer Meridien Dress, $178. Also pictured with the Scallop Belt ($58) - LOVE. Lilly … [Read more...]

I used to love taking my kids to the free summer movies that were offered by Regal Cinemas. A couple of years they decided to charging $1 a ticket which is still a pretty good deal in my book. It's always on a Tuesday or a Wednesday at 10 am. Definitely a beat the heat and pass some time with the kids event that's cost effective! Check out the … [Read more...]

Skip Hop has debuted two new diaper bags for the summer season and I just adore them both!  Too bad I don't actually have a reason to carry a diaper bag anymore! But here they are - the Duo Luxe French Stripe ($64.00) and Duo Chevron ($58.00) diaper bags.  Both are basically set up just like the original classic Duo (full of tons of pockets for … [Read more...]
