When you’re the parent of a curious child, having durable and accessible outlets for their curiosity is a must. So, I was excited to introduce my two kids to the WOW scope from My First Lab. Both of them enjoy collecting leaves, rocks, and feathers -- all of which are easy to examine with this durable microscope. Read on to learn what we thought of this scope from My First Lab or watch my video review below.

Bakerly Offers Simple Ingredients With A Lavish Taste!

I received the products mentioned below in exchange for this post. All views and opinions are my own. This post may contain affiliate links. 
Have you ever reached for a baked good, only to realize it's more process than quality content? Any of the leading brand snack cakes, desserts or even most types of bread are filled with preservatives that are meant to keep the items fresh as long as possible on the shelf and in your home. They are not meant to help with the quality or taste of the product. Since I have been introduced to Bakerly, I have become completely spoiled by what baked goods can be. Even though each item they bake is simple in ingredients, the taste and quality say otherwise.

Create Beautiful Art With Scratch & Create

I received the product mentioned below in exchange for this post. All views and opinions are my own. 
I’m not sure about many of you, but in my mind, I’m a lot better artist than I really am. You see, I can envision really cool projects. It’s just when I go to actually create something, I seem to get in the way of myself. When I was younger I got really into scrapbooking. Invested in only the best brands, fancy papers, shape cutters, calligraphy pens, the whole nine. After cutting the fancy edges into my photos (yes, physical pictures, remember) I was stuck. What I really needed was some helpful inspiration.

Christmas Forest Fresh Pine Wreath Warms Hearts For The Holidays

I received the below-mentioned product in exchange for this post. Sponsor is responsible for prize fulfillment. 
It's amazing how a certain scent can spark a memory. It can cause us to feel all sorts of emotions and take our mind right back to a time and place.  I'm blessed to say my childhood was full of happy times so now my memories of that period of my life make me happy especially when I think of Christmas. The scent of fresh pine brings back so many memories and helps warm my heart during the holidays.

Just in time for the holidays, each giveaway on this event is offering you a chance to win fun prizes that may or may not fit into your stocking. I remember when I was a kid and I got up before the sun to run into our living room and check by my stocking to see my gifts. It was our tradition that my sister and I could get our stocking before mom and dad got up. I think that was their way of catching some extra sleep. Santa always left us one gift unwrapped by the stocking that we could play with during the early hours of the morning. Those are happy memories I share with my sister and now I look forward to creating those type of fun mornings for my children!

Day to day life gets so busy. Working full time, kids in multiple extra-curricular activities, cleaning, cooking, life just happens. I try to make sure I am carving out special time for each of my kids. Do something they love, play a game that makes them happy, create crafts, whatever they want. I love the one-on-one time with them. We reconnect after a long week and catch up on what is going on in our daily lives. Yes, even at 8,6 and 2 I need to schedule the time to sit down one on one in their lives.

Sack Pals Where Plush Animal Fun Is In The Bag!

 I received the items in this post for review from Sackpals. All opinions are my own. The post may contain affiliate links. Sponsor is responsible for prize fulfillment. 
As a mom, it sometimes seems difficult to find unique gifts that are age appropriate but reading about Sackpals my interest was piqued. When we opened our boxes we were pleasantly surprised to find the Sackpals wrapped in tissue paper and not just a bunch of “stuffing”. It felt as though someone loving packed the box instead of just throwing it in the box. Read more about our experience with Sackpals plus enter for a chance to win one for your child below.
