Totsy Memorial Day Weekend Sale!!

What is Totsy?  Totsy is a site that hosts private sales for moms, children and babies.  I absolutely love Totsy for the reason that they have items for up to 85% off the retail price!  Not only do they have great prices, but they have items that would normally be un-affordable for most families because of the high prices, but Totsy makes them affordable. I have gotten some amazing, unbelievable deals off of Totsy and will continue to shop there for as long as I possibly can get steals!

Happy Memorial Day Weekend!

What fun is a long, holiday weekend without a fun old-school, nostalgic MySpace glitter graphic! (Corny, I know. I like glitter, what can I say?)  But either way -- Happy Memorial Day Weekend!  I hope everyone has a great BBQ to go to and eats as much food as their tummies can handle!  I know that I will!  We are just having a small family BBQ, but we're still going to eat whatever we can fit in our stomaches nonetheless!  Memorial Day is the "official" kick off to summer and also an excuse to stuff ourselves! (Well, other than Thanksgiving...)

Summer is coming! Children in Bikinis? Your opinions!

I recently saw this topic on Momversation and in light of summer coming up, I feel this is a good debate to spark on my blog and maybe some others as well.  It's definitely something that has many different opinions and I am sure moms cannot agree on what is right and what is wrong.  It has many moms and families split down the middle.  

Remember the news headlines a few weeks ago about Abercrombie Kids having a padded string bikini for kids?  Well, I believe this really sparked the conversations and debates about whether or not children should wear bikinis to the beach since their little (and very inappropriate) bikinis became front page news.

This giveaway is now closed, winners will be announced by Sat 5/28/11!

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of FRESCHETTA®. All opinions are 100% mine.

Thanks to SocialSpark, I was asked to review and host a Giveaway for FRESCHETTA® By the Slice! I jumped at the opportunity because, who doesn't love Pizza?!  Especially pizza that is cheap, quick and STILL tastes like delivery?  That's something we all love and all have time for!

Ok, so I do admit that I was very cautious and suspicious when I received the coupon because, let's face it, NOTHING that goes in the microwave or oven ever tastes like delivery, right? WRONG!  I was pleasantly surprised when I tasted this pizza.  It was absolutely delicious!  I also went ahead and did the ultimate taste test; I let my KIDS try it.  They all told me the same, that the pizza tastes just like delivery and they said it was crispy and delicious.  Anything that my kids do eat deserve a FIVE star rating!

Would you ever name your child Astravaganza or Facebook?

Celebrities are known for having the most off-the-wall baby names they can possibly have, but some non-celebrity moms are also starting to pick up on the trend.  I read an article this morning where some mom actually named her daughter Astravaganza. (Are you serious?!)  Parents want something unique that will set their children apart from the rest, but they also don't want their children to get beat up on the playground either.  I am not sure some parents consider that when naming their child.  They really do have to consider the long-term effects of the name that they are giving their child.

Office Redecorating Stress!

I find myself stressing lately about my home office.  I work 40 hours a week from home, so I need a nice and calming environment.  I really want it to be clutter-free so I can work without distractions.  This is why I moved my desk out of my room.  My room had way too many distractions and I found it so hard to work in there; or really concentrate on WHAT I had to do for work.  As I noted before in the previous post, we moved my office into our spare bedroom, which was empty.  It's been so nice to work in a calming environment separated from the rest of the house.  I.  Love.  It.  The only issue was, I still needed to do more work to get this room functional, the way I wanted it.  My ultimate vision is for this room to be a craft room, art studio and my home office.  Tall order, huh?  Definitely is, but I'm going to work my ass off to achieve this goal of mine... And quick!

Walgreens Health & Welness Review

This is a compensated post written by me on behalf of Walgreens. All opinions are 100% mine.
Since I was 16 I have tried almost every diet pill that is out there in the market, and while I know most of them were not safe, I did what I felt I had to do.  I found some that worked for me, some that made me feel like death and some that were just flat out unhealthy for you and were a big risk.  Once I came to my senses, I realized that I would never take another diet pill.  However, I learned about many supplements that were natural and worked almost as good as diet pills!  Green tea is one of them.  Not only do they help you rid water and bloat, they also are good for your health in general!
Walgreens sent me a sample of THEIR version of Green Tea Supplement pills to prove that their Health & Welness brand is exactly the same (if not better) than the competitors!  Walgreen's private label brands have the SAME exact ingredients as the larger labels that are mass marketed in different big box and drug stores.  Walgreens actually has better reviews than it's most popular competitor, MegaT.  Walgreens products have a 100% satisfaction guarantee as well.  It's extremely important to find a product that you like and that works fo you.  Especially in this economy, you want to find good value!
