Lovin' My Portable Stereo Turntable   A few months ago my daughter and I were shopping at an antique store. I remember coming around a corner and seeing some records to which my daughter immoderately asked "What the heck are these Mom? They look like big CD's." I was honestly surprised that she did not know what they were. She is 11 years old! I grew up with a turntable in my room and listened to records all the time. I guess I took that for granted and just expected her to know lol. I explained to her what they were and we ended up searching around the antique store until finding a turntable. I showed her how it would work and such...she was so curious and amazed. Fast forward a few weeks and I got a surprising email asking me if  I would be interested in reviewing..guess what...a turntable! YAY! I of course said yes and immediately went down town … [Read more...]

All opinions are mine alone. #acnefree123 #CollectiveBias   My Daughters First Pimple + DIY Tween Hygiene Kit!   Two weeks ago my daughter had one of the worst days of her life. She woke up to her first pimple. As she looked in the mirror for the first time that day I could hear her scream! It scream was like something out of a teen movie. Both of my girls were getting their Easter pictures taken that day  and she could not believe that she was going to have a HUGE zit showing for everyone to see! It was bright read and awful looking. Ok...so I hardly noticed but to her it was the end of the world. Getting her first pimple opened up the door for me to talk to my tween about her personal hygiene and the things she needs to start doing to care for her skin and body. Of course her skin care routine was the top of the list of items we disused and she asked me if we could head to Walmart and … [Read more...]

** I was sent an ornament for the purpose of this review. Ornaments With Love Review     If you have read my blog for the past few years then you know how important it is to me to purchase my daughter a new Christmas Ornament each year.

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. Bring Your Family Together for Game Night with The Sims 4! I will never forget my first experience with The Sims Series. I was introduced to Sims. I was at a friends house, 13 years old and board. She asked me if I wanted to play this new game on her computer that her parents got for her and her siblings. It was called The Sims. I was of course willing because...well...I did not get to play computer games at home. As soon as she introduced me to The Sims I was hooked. I was able to take my creativity to a whole new level by building and creating a  little town to take care of. I used to go to her house on a daily basis so I could plant new crops, harvest and sell. I loved it.   A few months after I was introduced to The Sims my parents decided to break down and purchase a Sims game for my brothers and I.

Technology & Schooling Go Together Like Peanut Butter & Jelly Have you ever just looked at your child with a stunned face wondering how they can figure out all these electronic gadgets so easily? It's unbelievable to me that my eight year old son can do things that I hadn't even thought of. I consider myself a semi tech savvy person, I can get around on my own fairly easy when it comes to technology but there are times where I am shocked that my children are learning in new and inventive ways and going above my knowledge in the tech world. What happened to the old trusty abacus or just a pencil and paper?! Don't get me wrong, my kids still use plenty of pencils and paper but the tools they have now to teach children are really geared towards technology. My kids were born into a tech world and they have picked it up quickly. Things are being replaced to make it easier for both the educator and the student. Instead of chalkboards there are now amazing smartboards, … [Read more...]
