Get Up & Play And Take The #TeamLittleBites Challenge! @entenmanns #Giveaway #Ad

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...]

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...]

Mistress Of Evil Pie Pops #Maleficent2 #Giveaway #Ad

There is nothing more intriguing than a villainess, especially when she is Maleficent. I had the pleasure of viewing Maleficent 2 this month with my family and I loved it! The special effects in the movie were spectacular and I really enjoyed all of the mythical characters from the Moor. Of course, Angelina Jolie's portrayal of Maleficent was absolutely brilliant! From her costumes to her dark humor she was the perfect one for this role. Disney's most iconic villain when Maleficent: Mistress of Evil, starring Angelina Jolie, Elle Fanning and Michelle Pfeiffer, has arrived on Digital and Movies Anywhere, 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, and DVD.

Make Your Kid’s Passion Clear With Mott’s! #ClearPassion @Motts #Ad

    Being a parent certainly does not come with an instruction manual. As your kids get older, they start to assert themselves as individuals and share their goals and passion with others.

Introduce A New Generation To Dumbo! #Ad

    There are just certain films which stand out as being an important part of one's childhood because of the impact that they had. In my case, I can say that Dumbo has been one of those movies for me. It definitely was one of my favorites when I was a young girl and, aside from loving all of its characters, I've always been touched by the relationship between Dumbo and his mother. Now that I am a mom, this resonates with me even more.     As a result of these fond memories, I am so excited to announce that DUMBO, the grand live-action adventure from Disney and visionary director Tim Burton, which expanded on the beloved animated classic and sent spirits soaring, becomes available on June 25. An all new generation can fall in love with this heartfelt story when it swoops into homes on Digital in HD and 4K Ultra HD and Movies Anywhere, and physically on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray and DVD - with never-before-seen bonus features, deleted scenes, bloopers and more!     In “Dumbo,” struggling … [Read more...]
