This review and giveaway was made possible by Double Duty Divas and Pampers. I was compensated for my participation in this campaign, but all opinions are 100% mine.

My daughter, Kayleigh, is turning 2 years old next month!  I can’t believe how fast the time has flown by.  Having a newborn at home now, too, has really made me realize just how much she has grown.  She is definitely not my little baby anymore.  She is now this extremely bright, and very independent toddler.

Kayleigh

With Kayleigh’s second birthday fast approaching, I know potty training is just around the corner.  She is a very strong-willed child, so I really need to make this as easy as possible for both of us.  Kayleigh is already showing some signs of being ready, such as bringing me a new diaper when she has wet herself.

To help with the potty training transition, I’m stocking up on Pampers Easy Ups.  I’m choosing to use Pampers Easy Ups before training pants, because it can be confusing to toddlers to switch between diapers and training pants throughout the day and night. Pampers Easy Ups

Pampers Easy Ups can help the diaper-to-underwear transition by allowing potty-training toddlers to stop wearing diapers and wear something with more of an underwear-like design that still helps keep accidental messes off clothing, bedding and other surfaces no matter whether they happen at home, on-the-go or overnight.

Since I have a newborn at home to take care of, I really don’t have the time or energy to clean up accidental messes all over the house – shampooing carpets, mopping floors, washing bedding every day.  That sounds like an awful lot of work that can be spared just by using Pampers Easy Ups for potty training!

Here are some additional reasons why I am choosing to use Pampers Easy Ups for potty training:

  • Pampers Easy Ups have fewer leaks than the other leading training pant to help simplify and improve the overall potty training experience. 
  • Pampers Easy Ups have an absorbent core that holds 25% more than the other leading training pant to help ensure little ones remain dry.
  • Pampers Easy Ups provide up to 12 hours of protection.

I’m really excited to start potty training Kayleigh now, with the help of Pampers Easy Ups.  I really think that they will help make the transition so much easier for both of us.

JOIN THE PAMPERS TWITTER PARTY!

I participated in a Blog Blast Activation on behalf of Influence Central for GB. I received a promotional item to thank me for my participation.

It’s no secret that babies need a lot of stuff.  I remember creating my baby registry when I was pregnant with Kayleigh, and feeling overwhelmed by just how much stuff she needed. 

One of the most important items on my registry was, of course, the car seat.  The car seat is hands down one of the most important purchases that parents make, and that’s why I put a lot of thought and research into selecting one that is very safe and user friendly. 

I recently gave birth to my son, and I have been using the GB Asana35 AP Car Seat for a little over a month now.  I absolutely love it this car seat!  Not only is it stylish, but it has a unique 3-way FirmFit System that gives me the ultimate peace of mind.  It is seriously so easy to use and install, which is a must for me, as it’s hard enough to get a toddler and an infant into the car at the same time.

GB Asana35 Car SeatGB Travel Safe Sweepstakes

If you have a fun event coming up with guests you want to entertain, there is no better way to be the host of the season than by treating your guests to a cocktail. One very popular cocktail with an old vintage twist is the Fashioned in Oaxaca cocktail. It comes from New York thanks to the creator Phil Ward, a barman who wanted to add a unique touch to a classic. Its origin already gives it a cosmopolitan feel. The name speaks for itself, so before you even begin make sure you have an old fashioned glass in appearance to serve it in. This drink needs to look as good as it will taste.Fashioned in OaxacaIn comparison to Old Fashioned, which has a real American feel and ingredients, Fashioned in Oaxaca is a Mexican spinoff. It is named after one of Mexican states and logically, it has tequila inside of it, substituting US whiskey. Besides that, it also has agave nectar instead of sugar as well as mezcal. All this together, gives a real, Mexican touch to the concoction. You can find both Old Fashioned and Fashioned in Oaxaca in D.W. Alexander, one of the well-known Toronto bars.

        Ingredients

  • 1.5 ounces reposado tequila
  • 0.5 ounces mezcal
  • 1 teaspon agave nectar
  • 1 dash Angostura bitters

 Preparation of this drink is much different from Old Fashioned’s preparation. You will need to combine all the ingredients into a shaker filled with ice. Shake until the drink is chilled. Strain into a glass filled with ice. This is where it gets interesting. Take orange peel in one hand and a match in other. Put the peel above lighted match and squeeze it. When the juice touches the flames, put the peel in the drink and serve it.

This cocktail is a hidden gem that will no doubt give your taste buds quite a treat. Plus it is very easy to make at home with all the right ingredients and some careful preparation. You won’t need to go to New York at all, the perfect atmosphere can be created in your own home with some Fashioned in Oaxaca cocktails by your side, which will lead to an unforgettable evening.

I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Carter’s. I received a complimentary gift card to facilitate my review and thank me for my participation.

It has been a brutal winter here in Maine.  We got hammered with snow this year, and I cannot wait for spring to finally get here!  My yard is still buried under snow, unfortunately, but I didn’t let that stop me from doing some spring clothes shopping for the kids.  It was actually really fun and therapeutic for me.

I am a stay at home Mom to an almost 2 year old, and a 4 week old, so I prefer to do my clothes shopping online.  There are so many places to shop for kids’ clothing online, but I always shop at one store first, and that’s Carter’s.  I can usually find everything I am looking for there, and at amazing prices, too.

I was very pleased with the selection of spring clothing that Carter’s has to offer right now.  Spring weather in Maine is still on the chilly side most days, so I bought a lot of 3-piece outfits that include pants, a long-sleeved shirt and a short-sleeved shirt.  I can wear the long-sleeved shirts on the kids on the chilly days and the short-sleeved shirts on the warmer days.  It’s perfect!

Carter's

These outfits are just so adorable.  I absolutely love the cute little embellishments on the bottoms of the pants. 

Carter's

I always find amazing deals at Carter’s.  Would you believe that I got all of these outfits for a total of $99, shipped?!  That just blows my mind! 

 Carter's

You can snag some great deals right now too, because EVERYTHING in the store is 50% off, now through April 5th.  On top of that, you can save an extra 20% on your purchase of $40 or more with the coupon below!

Carter's coupon

These great deals are perfect for last-minute Easter shopping or getting ready for spring.  Carter’s Easter Shop is full of super cute dress-up styles for girls and boys.  There, you can shop for Easter dresses, special styles for family photos or egg hunting.  Don’t forget the coordinating accessories that will make those outfits “pop”, including shoes, jewelry, bow-ties, belts, bags and hair accessories!  There is so much goodness to choose from!

Carter's

My next shopping session at Carter’s will be for swimwear.  I was newly pregnant last summer, and could hardly stand the heat, so Kayleigh and I pretty much hibernated inside with the AC all summer.  I really want to make it up to her this summer, and take her outside and let her play in the water.  I know she’ll have so much fun!

Carter's

Carter’s has all the essentials you’ll need to hit the beach, including coordinating swimsuits and towels, in cute designs that also feature sun protection, tees, tanks and shorts, accessories like hats, sunglasses and goggles and protective footwear, including water shoes and flip flops.

This is a sponsored post for SheSpeaks/Bounty.

So, here’s a little secret of mine… I’m a big germophobe.  My husband makes fun of me for washing my hands 100 times a day, and for all of my other OCD cleaning tendencies, but I don’t care.  It’s who I am, and I’m not going to change my ways any time soon!

One thing that really drives me nuts is dirty sponges and dish cloths.  I absolutely cannot clean dishes or my kitchen surfaces with a sponge or dish cloth that has been sitting out for who knows how long, and has who knows what growing on it. 

I have been using Bounty paper towels and Dawn dish soap  to clean the dishes that I can’t fit into my dishwasher, as well as my counter tops and other kitchen surfaces, for many years.  It is so easy to grab a paper towel, squirt a bit of Dawn dish soap into it, run it under hot water and wipe up a mess.  I like knowing that the paper towel is CLEAN, and is not just going to spread more germs around my kitchen.

When I found out that there is now a specially designed 2-in-1 product that combines an ultra-durable Bounty paper towel with grease-fighting power of Dawn dish soap, I was beyond thrilled.  I feel like I should have marketed this idea years ago! 

Bounty with Dawn

When activated by water, Bounty with Dawn stands up to tough messes like grease and dried food residue.  I put these cool new paper towels to the test after making a yummy Chocolate-Crazed Sundae. 

Chocolate-Crazed Sundae

This Sundae had LOTS of chocolate syrup in it, which of course left a big mess in my bowl when I was done eating.  What made it even worse, is that I was interrupted by my kids before I could wash it, so the syrupy mess dried onto the bowl pretty good.   The Bounty with Dawn cleaned the dried on chocolate syrup with no problem at all!

Dried on Food Residue

Bounty with Dawn

I also tried using the Bounty with Dawn to wash down my dirty counter tops and kitchen table, and it worked wonderfully!   I even cleaned Kayleigh’s high chair tray off, which is often times one of the biggest messes in my home, with very little effort.

Bounty with Dawn is the thickest, strongest Bounty available on the market, with 70% more fibers in each sheet and clothlike durability to stay intact while cleaning.  Bounty with Dawn can even be reused.  All you have to do is simply rinse and wring the grease out to keep tackling any mess with just one sheet!

The grease-fighting power of Dawn combined with the strength of Bounty cleans 4x better than a used dishcloth.

You can find Bounty with Dawn at Walmart, which is great, because you can do all of your shopping right in one place!  Connect with Bounty with Dawn on Facebook and Twitter for more information, and to get the latest news and promotions.

I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Fellowes Brands. I received a product sample to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.

John and I reached some pretty big milestones last year.  We got married, purchased our first home, and found out that I was pregnant with our second child!

Along with all of these milestones came a mountain of paperwork.  After taking out a mortgage on the house, we got bombarded with unsolicited credit card offers and offers for homeowner’s insurance quotes, etc.  I absolutely loathe junk mail, and now that we are homeowners, we get a ton of it! 

After I found out I was pregnant, I started receiving medical bills in the mail too.  Paper medical bills are really unnecessary, as I have an online account with my hospital, where I can view and pay them any time I want.  It doesn’t stop the paper bills from coming though. 

I really hate having all of this paperwork scattered around our home.  It contains so much personal information that I don’t want others to see, and I can’t just throw it away in the trash because of that.

Luckily, we got the Fellowes M-12C shredder last year, and it has really helped us to keep the paper clutter away, and dispose of our confidential paperwork in a safe manner.

If you know someone who is getting married or buying a home this year, the Fellowes M-12C shredder is an excellent gift idea.  I always like to give practical gifts that I know people will actually get use out of, and the Fellowes M-12C shredder definitely fits the bill! 

shredder

Here are a few reasons why the Fellowes M-12C shredder is the perfect shredder for at-home use:

  1. With its slim profile design, the Fellowes M-12C shredder doesn’t take up a lot of room.  Our home is only 960 square feet, so we really can’t afford to lose all of that valuable space.
  2. The Fellowes M-12C shredder has cross-cut blades that destroy 12 sheets of paper into approximately 302 particles per sheet for greater security.
  3. I have a very busy and curious toddler, so the SafeSense® Technology of the Fellowes M-12C shredder is very important to me.  It automatically disables the shredder when there are hands touching the paper opening. 
  4. The Fellowes M-12C shredder can shred more than just paper!  It can also shred shred credit cards, paper clips, and staples! 
  5. You can run the Fellowes M-12C shredder for a full 5 minutes before its automatic cool down starts.  I can get a lot of shredding done in 5 minutes!

shredder

Want to know where you can find this awesome gift idea?  You can purchase the M-12C at Target Stores nationwide and Target.com, for the suggested retail price of $99.99.

Give the gift of organization and security this year.  It’s sure to be one of the most useful and memorable gifts any newlywed or new homeowner will receive!

One of my favorite things about living in the State of Maine, is the food.  There are so many unique foods here, and us Mainers really know how to cook!  Some of my favorite foods that are rather unique to Maine are lobster, of course, fiddleheads, whoopie pies, and even Moxie soda.

Another food that is fairly unique to Maine, is the red hot dog.  I’ll never forget the time I was in the deli section at my local grocery store, and a group of girls, obviously not from around here, gathered around the hot dog section, completely in awe of the red hot dogs.  They had never seen them before and were very intrigued.  I grew up eating red hot dogs, so I found their reaction to be quite humorous.

Red Hot Dog

Red hot dogs are so popular here, that a local restaurant even created a special egg roll filled with a red hot dog and fixings.  How clever is that?!  We sure do love to experiment with our foods here, and the end result is usually very good. 

We usually serve our red hot dogs with a few different sides – baked beans. coleslaw, or the ever popular Lay’s potato chip. 

Red Hot Dog

When I heard the Lay’s brand was doing their “Do Us A Flavor” contest again, my mind immediately turned to red hot dogs.  The two already pair so well together, that I really think a red hot dog flavored potato chip would be amazing!  Of course, it would also  have to have the traditional Maine toppings of onions and mustard, too. 

Red Hot Dog

I’ve created my flavor, now it’s time for you to create yours!  There is a $1 million grand prize for the best potato chip flavor idea.  How awesome would that be?! 

Your chip flavor should be inspired by a city/state.  Later this year, four delicious finalist flavors – representing flavorful cities and towns across the U.S. – will be fully developed, brought to store shelves and voted on by America. 

Lay's Potato Chip

To see official rules and submit your flavor visit www.DoUsAFlavor.com for a chance to win!  You can also enter via Twitter (follow @Lays for details), through the Lay’s Facebook Page or by using your cell phone to text FLAVOR to CHIPS (24477).

You will be asked to provide:

  • Your name
  • Flavor name
  • Up to three ingredients
  • The chip style
  • The city and state that inspired your submission
  • A brief description or inspiration story for your flavor.

Good luck!

If you enter the contest, let me know what great flavor you came up with in the comments section below!

I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for GB. I received a GB stroller to facilitate my review as well as thank me for my participation.

When I was pregnant with Kayleigh, I bought, and asked friends and family to buy, all gender neutral baby products.  I knew I wanted to have another child, and fairly close in age to Kayleigh, as I am getting on in years.  Buying gender neutral items the first time around meant that I wouldn’t really have to buy too many things for the next baby, even if it should happen to be a boy. 

When my husband and I found out that we were in fact having a boy, we were really grateful that we did buy gender neutral items the first time around.  I’m in my 38th week of pregnancy, and we have been buying a few necessary items here and there, like diapers, wipes, clothing, etc. over the last several months.  Thankfully, we didn’t really have to make any large purchases this time around. 

One item I did want to purchase, however, was a new stroller, preferably a travel system, so that I could push the newborn in it. 

When I was pregnant with Kayleigh, John and I had spent a large chunk of money on a very popular brand named travel system.  While it did come in handy during our times of need, I honestly hated it.  It was heavy, bulky, hard to open and close, the handles were very uncomfortable, and it didn’t feel very sturdy, especially when turning corners.  It was also impossible to install and uninstall the car seat in the stroller by myself.  I was quite disappointed in this travel system, and with a new baby on the way, I desperately wanted to purchase a new and better one.

Over the last few months, I had been researching travel systems like crazy on the internet.   There were only a few that really caught my eye, but I still wasn’t really interested enough to actually purchase them.  I wanted something that was stylish, functional and most importantly, affordable. 

When I heard about the GB Evoq Travel System, I just knew I had to have it!  It had everything I was looking for – style, functionality and a great price to boot!

GB Evoq Travel System

STYLE

The GB Evoq Travel System has a very sleek look to it.  I am so in love with this vibrant teal color.  It is so beautiful, and also gender neutral, which works great for us.  I just know we will turn some heads while we are out walking with the kids this year! 

GB Evoq Travel System

FUNCTIONALITY

The GB Evoq Travel System is awesome!  I can install the car seat in it to push my newborn around, or take it out to push Kayleigh around.  I can adjust the height of the handles to make it more comfortable for me, or whoever else might be pushing the stroller.  I can easily have my child facing me, or facing away from me. 

GB Evoq Travel System

There is also a place for Kayleigh to stand and ride while I am pushing the newborn at the same time! 

GB Evoq Travel System

The Asana35 Infant Car Seat, which includes GB’s authentic FirmFit Installation system, is so easy to install, that I can actually do it all by myself.  I am a stay-at-home Mom, so I plan to take the kids out for walks by myself quite often this year.  I really need to be able to install the car seat by myself!

GB Evoq Travel System

The unique FirmFit System helps to provide an easier installation, providing you with the peace of mind that your baby is protected and riding in one of the safest car seats available.  I love the sound of that!

GB Evoq Travel System

The GB Evoq Travel System also comes with a roomy storage basket, which I love.  Having 2 kids under 3 is going to require me to carry around A LOT of stuff, so I’m definitely going to need all the storage room I can get!

GB Evoq Travel System

I also love this expandable canopy that provides great airflow and protection from the sun.

GB Evoq Travel System

AFFORDABLE

Like I said earlier in this post, I have been researching travel systems for a while now, and I have seen some that were very pricey, and definitely not in my price range.  The GB Evoq Travel System is very affordable, and well worth the money.  I love that I don’t have to break the bank to get everything I am looking for in a travel system.  The GB Evoq Travel System really does have it all, at a great price!

GB Evoq Travel System

I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central and Kangu. I received a promotional item to thank me for my participation.

When I found out I was pregnant with my daughter Kayleigh, having a safe birth was one of the first thoughts that entered my mind.  There was a hospital 10 minutes from where I lived, but I wasn’t just satisfied with that.  I wanted to make sure that I was doing what was best for myself and my baby, so I started to research the different options available to me.

After watching several documentaries and reading as much information as I could find on childbirth, I knew that I wanted to have a natural (unmedicated) birth with a midwife. 

While researching, I found a hospital 45 minutes from where I lived, that had a birthing center inside of it, and that was staffed by 5 midwives.  I was so excited to find exactly what I was looking for.

My whole pregnancy experience with Kayleigh was just absolutely amazing, thanks to the midwives and their wonderful nursing staff.  From the very first appointment, to the delivery of my daughter after a 24 hour natural labor, with 2.5 hours of pushing, I can honestly say that it was the best experience I could have ever dreamed of having.  I felt so safe and secure the entire time, knowing that I was being treated by some very knowledgeable women, and that if anything at all should go wrong at any time, I could be transferred over to the hospital section and taken care of. 

I am now 38 weeks pregnant with my second child, and I have been going to the same birthing center during this pregnancy.   I’m a bit overweight this time around, so I am being monitored pretty closely, with extra ultrasounds to check on baby’s growth, extra glucose tests to make sure I don’t develop gestational diabetes, and monitoring to make sure my blood pressure stays in the normal range.

I feel so lucky and privileged to be taken care of this much during my pregnancy.  My midwives really care about my health and the health of my baby, and do everything possible to make sure we are safe at all times.  They actually schedule 30 minutes at the end of each appointment, just so that I can feel free to talk to them about anything at all, without feeling rushed.  The support I receive from them is truly amazing.

I can’t imagine what it must be like to live in a country where quality healthcare is difficult to find, or hard to afford.  Did you know that 800 women – nearly 300,000 every year – die from preventable causes related to pregnancy and childbirth?  Ninety-nine percent of these deaths occur in developing countries.  That just saddens me so much.  Every pregnant woman should have access to quality healthcare to ensure that she has a safe and healthy pregnancy and delivery.

logo-horizontal

I was really happy to recently hear about Kangu, which is a non-profit organization with a big dream: that every woman in the world has a safe birth. Kangu’s crowdfunding platform is designed to help put an end to preventable maternal and newborn deaths by enabling donors to support life-saving health services for pregnant women – mamas – and their babies in need, globally.  Isn’t that great?!

At Kangu, anyone – anywhere – can search profiles of pregnant women in need and contribute towards eliminating the financial barrier for a specific woman to access high-quality healthcare before, during and after childbirth. These services, provided by vetted local medical partners, are proven to reduce maternal and newborn deaths by up to 80%!

When you’re pregnant, especially for the first time, it can be really scary.  It helped me so much to have midwives to talk to and ask any questions I might have.  I can’t imagine not having that kind of support during one of the happiest times in my life.  Making a donation to Kangu is something I can easily do to help another woman to receive quality healthcare and support during her pregnancy.

I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Dunkin’ Brands. I received a promotional item to thank me for my participation.

Dunkin’ Donuts is celebrating the one year anniversary of their DD Perks Rewards Program, and offering members an extra 200 reward points with any purchase from January 27, 2015 to February 1, 2015. 

DD Perks

That means you can get a FREE any size beverage of your choice!  How great is that?!  What would be your beverage of choice?  Right now, I think I could really go for a Vanilla Bean Coolatta.  That is one of my very favorite items on their menu.  It’s so refreshing and delicious!

DD Perks

I have been a loyal Dunkin’ Donuts customer for longer than I can remember.  From donuts to breakfast sandwiches, beverages, and more, I think I have tried just about every item on their menu.  My personal fave?  Well, I’d have to say the ham, egg and cheese croissant.  It’s like the perfect comfort food to me.  It’s so warm and filling, and I just love that flaky croissant.  It’s a perfect start to my morning, or a great pick-me-up any time of day. 

We have about 7 Dunkin’ Donuts locations close to our home, so it is one of our favorite places to stop to pick up a hot cup of coffee, or a quick bite to eat.  Kayleigh’s favorite Dunkin’ Donuts treats are their bagels, and of course, the Munchkins!  She goes crazy over them.  

John and I have moved quite a lot over the last few years, and we always bribe our family and friends to help us with a Box O’ Joe and a bunch of pastries from Dunkin’ Donuts.  Let me tell you, IT WORKS!  The only problem we have, is that we have to sometimes break up the gathering that forms around the table and tell people to get back to work!  There is just something about a hot cup of coffee and delicious breakfast that brings people together.

I love that Dunkin’ Donuts recognizes their loyal customers like me, and rewards me for all of my purchases.   I get 5 points for every dollar I spend on qualifying purchases, and when I reach 200 points, I get a free any size beverage of my choice!  I have the DD Perks app on my phone, and it makes it so easy for me to earn and redeem my rewards, view their menu, and so much more! 

DD Perks

Sign up for DD Perks today, and you will get a  a coupon for a free, any size beverage upon enrollment and on your birthday, too!
