A Laser Tag Arena Right At Home With Laser X Revolution! #ad

As the holidays are approaching, I find myself scrambling to get all the gifts on my sons' and nephews' holiday list. Since they range from all ages, it can be tricky making sure that I find gifts that meet their unique likes and interests. My nephew loves laser tag ever since I had a laser tag party for my older son for one of his birthdays. I knew that Laser X Revolution would be the perfect gift for him this Christmas. Laser X Revolution can be found at Target and getlaserx.com.  It is like having a laser tag arena in your own home! Blast opponents up to 300' away – inside or out, in darkness or bright sunlight.  You can even choose from more than 20 team colors to light up your blaster! Blaster beams have the ability to go through windows and strategically bounce off walls and mirrors to hit opponents, while quick-slide reload keeps the action going. Advanced sensors allow an interactive voice "coach" to offer tips and tricks throughout the game. … [Read more...]

Battle It Out This Holiday Season With Wubble Rumblers! @SuperWubble #ad

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​As my boys are getting older, it has become increasingly difficult to figure out what to get them as gifts for the holidays. I've been wanting to create more opportunities for us to spend quality time together as a family by setting up game nights and making sure that we eat dinner together as often as possible. I was excited to be given the opportunity to review Wubble Rumblers because I knew they would be a really fun addition to our family activities.

Even Mini Acts Of Kindness Can Be Huge! #MiniActsofKindness @entenmanns #Giveaway #Ad

When you are the parent of two teenage boys, it can be a challenge sometimes to get them to be nice to one another. My boys are three years apart and they are constantly going back and forth about one thing or another. With Entenmann's, everyone's got a favorite and in our home my oldest loves their Minis while my younger one prefers Little Bites. That doesn't mean that they don't argue about who is going to eat the last one whether we have one variety or the other in our home! Entenmann's Minis are the same delicious variety of baked goods you know and love, from donuts, crumb cake, apple pie and more, perfectly portioned, and individually wrapped. Believe me, this is more convenient now than ever as we all embark on this remote learning journey. It's so easy to grab Minis because they are perfectly portioned and individually wrapped to make on the go snacking and lunchtime packing a breeze! Since I'm also teaching remotely, it helps so much that they can both head to our … [Read more...]

Celebrate The Dads In Your Life This Father’s Day! @gmtgiftbaskets #fathersday #ad

I've always felt that fathers don't get as much credit as they deserve on Father's Day. For some reason, Mother's Day is always such a huge holiday and when the dads' special day rolls around, it's not always sprinkled with the same fanfare that moms get. In our home, we make sure that we always show our love and appreciation for my husband because he is just the most wonderful father to our two sons and deserves to be pampered and recognized. The problem is that, when it comes to gifts, my husband is really difficult to buy presents for because he is not very materialistic and doesn't really spend a lot of money on himself. I knew that this year it was going to be important to make him feel really special because we have spent a few tough months here in New York City due to the pandemic. Since my husband is an essential worker, he has worked every single day while everyone else has been sheltering in place. As soon as I saw the Family Game Night Gift Crate from Gourmet Gift … [Read more...]

Turn Your Home Into A Gaming Arcade With ProjeX! #ProjeX #Giveaway #Ad

Most families who live in New York suddenly had to spend a lot of time with one another a few months ago and we all realized that this was the perfect opportunity to create opportunities to spend meaningful quality time together. When you have two teenagers like I do, it can be a little more challenging to do things as a family that are "cool" enough to keep teens engaged and away from their phones. If you have teens you know exactly what I am talking about! I was so excited when I learned that I would have the chance to review the ProjeX™ Projecting Gaming Arcade from New York City-based NSI International, Inc. ProjeX™ lets you blast targets such as ducks or UFOs that are projected right onto your wall like a real life video game! The best part is that all of these targets each come with its own unique sound effects! Since both of my sons are really tech-savvy and love competing against one another, I knew immediately that ProjeX™ was the perfect game for … [Read more...]

Manage Arthritis Pain While Staying Active! #Salonpas @Salonpas #Giveaway #Ad

May is National Arthritis Awareness Month, and in the United States, 23% of all adults—over 54 million people—have arthritis. As a Leukemia Survivor, I have developed arthritis due to some of the medications that I take even though I'm only 43 and I always thought that elderly people were the only ones who suffered from this pain. Unfortunately, as a busy Working Mom, I don't have time to be in pain but I don't like taking any additional prescription medications, if I can avoid it. Thankfully, I have discovered that Salonpas® is available to arthritis sufferers whose activities have been limited, and who suffer from severe joint pain. As someone who was raised in Spain, where people are less reliant on taking pain for pills than other countries, I was excited at the prospect of being able to use a topical analgesic to treat muscle, back and joint pain. The truth is that, worldwide, topical analgesics, physical therapy, and other approaches are often considered before … [Read more...]

Keep Your Kids Engaged During Remote Learning! @Snoopy #Snoopy #Ad

I've been a teacher for over twenty years and I have always known how rewarding it is to be an educator. However, I never imagined that I would be juggling my role teaching my students remotely while also homeschooling both of my own sons simultaneously. This is exactly what happened here in New York in March when school buildings were closed and we made the transition to remote learning. It became more important than ever to have the right resources to make learning engaging, not only for my students, but also for my sons. My younger son is in eighth grade and he is a huge Peanuts fan so I knew exactly what to do to not only make his learning fun while working from home, but also to keep him engaged and motivated to complete assignments remotely. Thankfully, I don't have to do this alone because Snoopy, Charlie Brown and the rest of the Peanuts Gang are here to help keep your kids engaged and educated with a range of subjects including STEM, Language Arts, Social Studies, … [Read more...]

Celebrate Love All Month Long! @entenmanns @MyMyrtleBeach #ASweetValentine #Giveaway #Ad

The month of February has always been associated with love, romance, and friendship due to Valentine's Day. Personally, I like to celebrate these things all month long since they are the foundation of every single relationship that I have with the people whom I most care about. After all, what better way to show your love and appreciation than by doing so every single day of the year instead of just on one day. Entenmann's and Little Bites want to help you celebrate your loves by offering A Sweet Valentine Giveaway with a chance to Visit Myrtle! With Entenmann's, everyone's got a favorite! Entenmann's offers a delicious variety of baked goods to choose from – including Entenmann's Donuts, Entenmann's Minis, Entenmann's Little Bites muffins and more. During my childhood, I remember enjoying Entenmann's Crumb Coffee Cake in my grandmother's house all the time. She would take it out whenever we had visits from family or friends and we would sit and enjoy each other's company … [Read more...]
