Thank you to GetOutfitted for sponsoring this post! TTM Discount code below! If you or your kids are new skiers or boarders, or if you haven’t been on a mountain in years, you probably don’t have the latest and greatest gear to get you up on the mountain. But,…

Family Ski Vacation #SkiMoms January Twitter Party!

0

It’s that time of the year and skiing and winter sports is at the top of mind of a lot of families. For us, it’s truly the only way that we can enjoy freezing cold weather! I am always surprised when our family goes on a ski vacation and our girls wake up early, happily put on three — count ’em, THREE — layers of clothes, then stay out in frigid temperatures. Granted skiing is a truly fun, family-focused sport, especially when you are: Properly dressed (three layers!) Learning how how to ski (put the kids in ski school!) Safe in every way: (where…

At-Home Spa Day with Panasonic #Snowvember + GIVEAWAY

16

Busy moms, busy parents. What to give them? The gift of “me-time”. A gift certificate to a spa is always nice but then it’s over and done with in a couple of hours. How about giving them the gift of “me-time” that can keep on giving? So, here’s the deal: a massage at a spa can come and go in an hour, or if you’re lucky two-hours; a facial is about 45-minutes and a wax is about 30 minutes. But this season, give your loved ones an at-home spa day with Panasonic products. Panasonic Handheld Massager: So, my husband LOVED trying this…

Best of StriVectin Beauty Products

0

Ever since I turned the Big 4-0, I’ve decided to fight, kicking and screaming against those terrible wrinkles. I did go to the dermatologist and asked them to write a prescription for Retin-A. I used it for about 3-4 months, but it really is too aggressive for my skin. (I do use Retin-A about once a week.)  But, what I’ve found is that I like using StriVectin products simply because it’s not as tough on my skin and I’ve found a noticeable difference. This post contains affiliate links for an easy shopping experience.  All products combine state-of-the-art anti-aging ingredients with StriVectin’s…

Cordless Vacuuming with the Dyson DC59 Motorhead – Available on QVC

1

We haven’t had a vacuum in over 7 years. We had one that was the right size for our New York City apartment, but it had a cord and had this bag that captured all the disgusting dirt and dust that it sucked up, but when it was full, I had to empty it (which I never did) and buy more bags (which I also never did). It just wasn’t conducive to everyday easy cleaning and vacuuming.  Enter the Dyson DC59 Motorhead vacuum. It has the power of a corded upright vacuum, with ease of being cord-free.  We don’t have a ton of room…

When you think of high-quality, super-value kids clothes, which brands come to mind? For me, Carter’s has been a staple in in my wardrobe when both me and my brother were young kids.
