5 Holiday Gifts All Mommies Want

I received some of these products to facilitate this article, however, all opinions are my own.  There may also be affiliate links in this post which means that it you click on a link and purchase something, I will receive commission. Us mommies spend so much time giving to everyone else.  We work especially hard during the Holidays, going to school functions, setting up Holiday parties, wrapping gifts, shopping for gifts, and setting up Holiday cards. Does anyone really ever ask what we want? My husband maybe, but he knows me.  What about the people that don’t know us so well?  What do we give to mommies for the Holiday? I am speaking from my experience and I am not speaking for every woman out there.  I am …

Toy Holiday Gift Guide for 2018

I was provided products to facilitate this article. However, all opinions are my own. There may be affiliate links in this post which means that if you click on something and purchase it, I will receive a commission. It's that time of year again, and us parents have the fun task of going over lists for Santa. I'm ready for my Toy Holiday Gift Guide for 2018.  But before I put it together, I have my boys circle what they want in a catalog and then I usually get one item off the list.  I've been doing this for years, so there are no expectations.  I don't want them to be spoiled either.  Although my youngest pointed out to me this year that last year he …

2 Weeks to Better Skin for the New Year

2 Weeks to Better Skin for the New Year

This is a Sponsored Post for Influence Central.  All opinions are my own. I love this time of year!  I'm one of the few people that don't mind the drop in temperature.  This kind of drop in temperature is never too big in Florida or Arizona!  Bring it on. As the weather changes, my skin feels drier.  That's the only downfall.  Dry skin is not a friend of women like me with mature skin.  So, not only do I have to worry about hydration, I have to think about antiaging.  Luckily, there is help out there. Have you ever been given a challenge to see if you could see changes over a period of time?  I just started challenging myself to lose some weight.  I want to start …

How to Put Together the Best Holiday Cards

This is a Sponsored Post for Basic Invite. However, all opinions are my own. The Holidays are coming up fast and I am scrambling to get the family pictures together.  My boys are not easy when it comes to taking pictures.  Bribery helps. It is what it is. However, there is something else to consider when putting together Holiday cards. How do I put it together? What kind of card will I get? Do I want to go retro holiday cards this year or elegant Christmas cards? Us moms like to go all out. Last year we lived in Deerfield Beach, and knowing it would be our last Christmas holiday there, I decided to do beach photos. This year we live in Phoenix.  I'm thinking Christmas cactus instead of a Christmas …

Jason's Deli in Scottsdale

Jason's Deli in Scottsdale

I was hosted by Jason's Deli for this post. However, all opinions are my own. Everyone loves a good sandwich.  I've been to a few delis in my time. It's been hit and miss with me.  For me, it's all about the quality of the food.  If the quality is not there, I walk out disappointed. That's why I was excited to try out Jason's Deli in Scottsdale.  When I take my kids out to eat, I want them to eat healthy. Jason's Deli wouldn't serve your family anything they wouldn't make their family and stands by serving wholesome ingredients. In 2005, they became the first national chain restaurant to remove partially hydrogenated oil – a source of artificial trans fat.  There is no processed MSG, no high-fructose …

Wyndham Sedona

I received a complimentary stay to facilitate this article.  All opinions are my own. I grew up in the Phoenix area and recently moved back after a 24 year hiatus in Florida.  I've been to Sedona a few times and decided to take my family to see it. When looking for hotels, we gravitate towards family-friendly hotels and have stayed at the Wyndham in Disney Springs and the Wyndham Deerfield Beach Resort, so it was a no-brainer to check out the Wyndham Sedona. Check in is easy.  There are cookies at the front desk.  Need I say more? Rooms Wyndham Sedona offers one-bedroom suites and two-bedroom deluxe suites that comfortably sleep four to eight guests and range from 558 - 1,224 square feet.

DIY Essential Oil Sprays with Goddess Garden

This is a sponsored post for Goddess Garden, however, all opinions are my own. I recently went to Sedona and experienced the magnificent red rock.  Sedona is also known to be a mystical place where you can crystal shop and vortex hunt.   When I went I took my Essential Oils with me for inspiration for a DIY project. Essential Oils and crystals go hand in hand. Their benefits are so amazing, from aiding in sleeping, anxiety, breathing and can give you a mental boost.  Pairing them up and adding the crystal to the Essential Oils helps raise your vibration. Every day, when I turn on the hot water for my shower, I spray Eucalyptus Oil before I get in.  I've been doing this for at least 2 …
