OshKosh B'gosh Back to School {Review} #backtobgosh #BgoshJeanius

“I participated in a Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for OshKosh B’Gosh. I received a promotional item to thank me for my participation.”

This time of year is always bitter sweet. I absolutely love when the kids are home for the summer because we have so much fun together! Our family camping trips, swimming in the pool, playing with friends, barbecues and staying up late are without a doubt the best times together as a family. But, as we all know summer has to end and school needs to start. I am going to miss my kids so much, but also can't wait for them to go back-to-school.

As a kid I always loved back-to-school shopping. Like all kids, I didn't really want to go back to school, I just wanted to go shopping! Any excuse to pick out fun new outfits, new shoes and fresh new school supplies, I was there!

Just last weekend, we had the chance to do some shopping at OshKosh B'gosh and had so much fun picking out new clothes for my kids. 

I just love OshKosh B'gosh because I can literally find everything I need for all my kids at one store–it's amazing!

If you haven't stepped foot into OshKosh B'gosh this month, you need to because their Fall essentials are super adorable and if they would have had it in my size I would have bought it–no joke! From their B'gosh Blue Jeans, to their new trendy Black, White and Indigo Collection, they have everything your kids will need to feel confident this school year.

My kids really enjoyed picking out their own clothes and I liked that they had so much for my active kids. My daughter picked some cute

Take Control and Feel Heatlhy with thinkThin {Review}

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post by thinkThin, However, these opinions are 100% my own.

Whenever I have a great day, it is always because I had a plan and was focused. For instance, I knew what I was going to have for breakfast, I went to bed at a decent hour and woke up early and was able to exercise and shower before my kids woke up.

These simple things can make my day extremely successful and my whole outlook on life changes. Things get done, my kids are happy and I feel great! 

Being in control of your life and your body is the best feeling in the whole world. 

Even when my life is under control, it's still crazy. I mean, any mom with kids knows what I am talking about! I have four kids and they keep my super busy, but that doesn't mean I can't take care of myself. As I am running from one place to another, thinkThin products are one of my favorites. 

They are a high protein, low sugar bar that have been designed for women who love quality food. They are easy to keep in your purse after a workout or when you are on the run like me! They taste fantastic, even my kids try and steal them from my purse! 

Combining healthy food like thinkThin with personal meditation time is the perfect combination for a successful day. A couple of weeks ago, I had the opportunity of going downtown Chicago for some Sunrise Yoga with Andrea Metcalf!

I have done yoga before, but not like this. The experience of being downtown looking over the water while the sun was rising, and doing Yoga with the ever so talented Andrea Metcalf was absolutely incredible. She was such a great teacher, I wanted to put her in my pocket and bring her home with me–seriously!

After the Yoga session I felt so refreshed and was ready to enjoy a healthy and delicious breakfast from thinkThin. I had such a great time, and was grateful that I had this experience–EVERY mom needs a day like this!

What Matters Most #WaterWipes

“I participated in an Ambassador Activation on behalf of Influence Central for WaterWipes. I received product samples to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.”

You know the days when you just want to throw in the towel and call it quits? Well, today was almost one of those days. I had piles of laundry to do, my kids would not stop fighting and then my daughter decided it was a good idea to draw on her face... twice! 

Amidst all the craziness, I took a deep breath (more than once!), stayed positive, and looked for those special moments during the day, that make being a mom totally worth it.  When I cling to the things that matter most, like the precious moments I have with my children, it's easier to get through the tough days. 

Although there was plenty of fighting, seeing my kids sitting and reading books together just made my heart burst today, and made cleaning up my daughter's artistically painted face with WaterWipes chemical free wipes completely worth it! 

I actually enjoyed our time together as I washed the marker off her face. I asked her why she colored all over her cheek and she just said "eh eh eh" and pointed to the WaterWipes on the bed. 

She is only 1 1/2 years old and if she could talk I know what she would say! She would say thank you for loving her no matter what mistakes she makes, and for helping her get the marker off her sweet little cheeks. She would tell me how much she loved me and that she loves when I read and play with her. She would say thank you for being her mom! 

Being a mom can be hard, but these sweet moments, the moments that matter the most for us and our kids is what makes being a parent the most rewarding job!

As a WaterWipes ambassador, I was able to contribute to this wonderful video. Being a mom can be messy, and hard but WaterWipes are here to help. Find a store near you: http://goic.io/iv7I1P

Fashionable Accessories That You Can Pair Up With Your Dog

If you are a dog owner then you know the incredible bond between you and your pet pooch, as dogs are more than just best friends they’re family. Dog accessories are now becoming more and more fashionable especially nowadays where owners want to showcase their love and admiration for their pets with matching outfits and accessories. Those owners who want to make a bold impression with their pet while out and about can with all sorts of different accessories.

Co-Ordinate Outfits

An easy way you and your dog can step out onto the streets with matching accessories is to match your dog’s collar and lead with your own outfit and style. Dog leashes can also help build the bond between owner and dog, as with a leash, owners and dog are literally connected during a walk which can help your pooch feel like you are a unit. There are now countless styles of dog collars Urban Pup provide, so if you have certain look whether that’s more punk with skulls and roses or more traditional and cute with floral retro prints they have everything to suit all trends and tastes. Dog collars can also identify your pets own personality as well, so even if you don’t exactly want to match your dog to your style it can help showcase their own style.

Matching Bling

If you like to accessorise with jewellery then you’re in luck as you can now add bling to your pet’s collar as well. There are subtle ways you can add a bit of sparkle to your pet pooch’s collar with diamante personalised dog collars, not only will these add some bling, you and your pet can be a matching duo but as these can be personalised they are also completely unique depending on your preferences. Another easy way to add some sparkle is by adding a collar charm, these also come in an array of colours and styles an can be found in popular pet shops as well as many websites dedicated to dog accessories. If there is a special occasion or you want to go all out and spoil your dog you can get crystal dog necklace which are rather similar to collars but can’t be worn at all times or used instead of a collar.

All In The Shoes

Dog owners may have heard about shoes and socks for dogs, and although it may sound slightly strange they can actually protect your dog’s feet. Certain elements can actually hurt your dog’s feet including ice, snow, hot weather, and other chemicals that may be on pavements that can damage paws and make it hard for your pet to walk or run. Dog shoes and socks can also help protect your dog’s paws especially if they have had an operation and if you have a slippery floor at home it could help them keep their balance. Always remember to find shoes and socks that are a comfortable fit for your pet. If you’re an owner who likes to match and co-ordinate with your pup then you can easily find matching trainers or socks to go with your own pair of shoes, perfect when you both step out for morning walks, or daily runs.

Centrum MultiGummies {Review}

It's a new year, a new you and Centrum wants you to know they have your back!  The new Centrum MultiGummies are designed to support your health, energy, immunity and metabolism.
This year I am committing to a healthier me!  I am working out more, keeping active, and as always, continuing to keep up with the daily life grind of a family of six.  I try to start each day off right with a good workout, a healthy protein shake, and of course my new Centrum MultiGummies.  
These new gummy vitamins are great-tasting, easy-to-take, and provide key nutrients that help support your energy, immunity, and metabolism.  What more could you ask for?
I love that the Centrum MultiGummies include great ingredients such as essential nutrients and Vitamins B12, D, and E. Those key ingredients are there to help support your overall health and well-being.
Centrum MultiGummies also have no artificial flavors or sweeteners.  Instead, they contain three natural flavors: Berry, Cherry, and Orange.  Overall, I have just been really happy with these gummy multivitamins.  They taste great and make me feel great knowing they support my health.
A big THANK YOU to Centrum and Smiley360 for providing me with free MultiGummies  to review.  I was not compensated for this review. I receive product(s) for free so that I can provide my insight and experience. These are my honest opinions. Your experience may vary.
