6 DIY Easter Bunny Treats

I was never into Easter decorations and sweets until I had kids.  In Greece, Easter is a major religious holiday and in England we had a chocolate egg filled with chocolates but no Easter Baskets. When I moved to the U.S. it was a little strange getting an Easter Basket.  So, I still don't really do anything too big for the kids.  I'd rather make stuff with them.  I hide some eggs and get some items from  Target to build a little basket for them.  But I don't like to be excessive. I do really love fun DIY Easter Bunny treats though and so do the kids. So, I found 6 really awesome DIY Easter Bunny treats to make this Easter. The first one is my …

How to take a Solo Vacation Guilt Free

How to take a Solo Vacation Guilt Free

This is a Sponsored Post.  However, all opinions are my own. How many times do people tell us moms to take a vacation solo? "You need to get away", they say, "have some time to yourself, without the kids." Well, it's easy for them to say but not so easy to do.  So, when I had the opportunity to take a vacation by myself, at first I said yes right away.  But then a little mom-guilt set in.  My boys were asking why they couldn't go.  I had just come back from a press trip to Costa Rica.  I had mom-guilt all the way! We do go on a lot of family trips, like the one where we stayed at the Wyndham Sedona. We go to Disney, …

How to Live a Stress Free Life with Natural Vitality

This post is sponsored by Natural Vitality, however, all opinions are my own.   This year I promised myself that I'd take better care of myself.  I know, I know, promises, promises. But good health is all about balance. This doesn't happen over night and I have made many mistakes to learn this.  Life can get so stressful that we lose that balance in our lives.  In the moments when we should be taking care of ourselves, we get so stressed and busy, we forget self-care.  But it's progress, not perfection.  I'm always striving for balance and a stress-free life. Taking care of myself means a healthy diet and a healthy mind and body.  I practice the Keto way of life and ease stress by …

How to make Chocolate Playdough

How to make Chocolate Playdough

By now, you would think that I know how to make chocolate playdough, but I've honestly never thought about it until my 4-year-old's teacher asked me to make it for the class.  We've made regular playdough, but never scented, especially chocolate scented! I'm not going to say no to my son's teacher, right? But then it opened the doors to other things like mud play dough and poop playdough.  Only a #boymom could understand why anyone would want to make poopplay dough.  My boys are obsessed with anything that is related to poop (farting, burping, etc.). Play dough has many benefits like teaching kid's fine motor skills and creativity.  There are even sensory benefits to using playdough.  I put the pot on the counter so that they …

Keeping Game Day Simple with RITZ Crisp & Thins

This post was sponsored by RITZ as part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central and all opinions expressed in my post are my own. The big game is coming up and everyone is scrambling for game day recipes. Not me though. I like to keep things simple.

With just a few ingredients like avocados, lemon, tomatoes, cilantro, onion and seasoning, your set for an awesome game day recipe. The best part is that you don't have …

How to Make DIY Homemade Candles with Essential Oils

This is a Sponsored Post for Goddess Garden, however, all opinions are my own. This past Holiday, my friend and I decided to get creative and make DIY, homemade candles as gifts for people.  It was such a rewarding experience to hand make candles for people we love, with our own mixes of Aromatherapy Essential Oil Blends. Fragrance is pretty personal but when mixing essential oils, you can use different premade aromatherapy blends or individual essential oils. Goddess Garden has their own aromatherapy blends that I use for candles, sprays, and Aromatherapy Lava Bracelets. One of my favorite scents is Happy Day.   It's a happiness-boosting essential oil blend, featuring certified-organic citrus oils like bergamot and grapefruit.  Aromatherapy positively affects mood and alertness and can have many uses.

How to find Hotels and Family Friendly Destinations in Costa Rica

How to find Hotels and Family Friendly Destinations in Costa Rica

This trip was made possible through Il Viaggio Travel and Family Travel Association. However, all opinions are my own. I recently visited Costa Rica and experienced a lot of what the country has to offer using a family focused tour operator. In the past, I may have thought about using my amazing travel expertise and knowledge on where to stay, however, Costa Rica is a country I knew nothing about and bringing my family there without knowing what places would be accessible to us was a little scary.  A "family focused tour operator," specializes in family, so they know what they are talking about. Will you need a stroller? Where do you find formula? Do your children have allergies? Do they have any disabilities? When do they …

How I Balance My Kid's Screen Time

This post was sponsored by Amazon as part of an Ambassador Activation for Influence Central and all opinions expressed in my post are my own. This year is off to a great start and our family has so many new goals to accomplish for 2019! For myself, I have chosen to eat cleaner, do more reading, more exercise and spend more quality time with my boys. My boys have also started some new goals.  They get up with an alarm now, get dressed themselves AND make their beds.  Of course, you can't expect it to be done perfectly, but I give points for trying.  This has worked wonders for the kids.  It gives them a sense of duty and structure.  It has changed the tone of our …
