Gear Up at Sears to Make This the Best Year Ever!

I participated in this sponsored campaign for SEARS. All opinions stated are my own.

Gear Up at Sears to Make This the Best Year Ever!

Gear Up at Sears to Make This the Best Year Ever!

I can’t believe summer vacation is almost over.  It feels like I blinked and two months flew by, but I guess that’s how motherhood always feels. 

My kid’s first day of school is next week so the back to school mad dash is in full swing at my house.  Trying to get everyone back on a routine after a summer of late night swimming and sleeping in late, plus gathering all their school supplies, and finding some stylish back to school clothes, has my to do list busting off the paper.

Living in Florida means the seasons really don’t change, so back to school shopping is the one time of the year that my kids get their entire wardrobe freshened up.  We spend a full day going through everything in their closets and purging all the stuff that doesn’t fit or get worn anymore.  With 3 growing school aged kids that usually leaves a lot of empty drawers and bare hangers, and a long shopping list.

Gear-Up-With-Sears-Graphic-tees

Why Sears?

Shopping for my kids can easily get stressful because each of them have their own personal style.  Anthony is a jeans and sports shirt type of kid, while Aidan wants soft comfortable shorts and his favorite character shirts.  Lilly on the other hand wants fashion, unlike the boys, she passes right by the sports and leggings area and starts putting outfits together in her head.  Except when it comes to emoji’s, Shopkins, and anything cheer related for them she’ll grab the graphic tee.

Therefore we start our back to school shopping at Sears.  From activewear to denim to footwear and backpacks, Sears has everything I need to conquer my shopping list all in one store.  I have been back to school shopping at Sears since it was my own school clothes I was shopping for.  Sears is just one of those stores that has been around for generations, evolving to continually carry everything you need at reasonable prices and great quality.

What We Bought!

The first day of school is important, it’s a fresh start with new teachers and often new classmates.  It’s also a time to reconnect with best friends.  Plus, the first day of school photo is always a must, so, the first is the one day (besides picture day) that I really push Aidan a little out of his character t-shirt comfort zone.  This year I could find this adorable outfit at Sears and Aidan actually loved it!  He says, “It’s super comfy” Score!
The top is by Roebuck & Co and was on sale for $14.99.  It’s two pieces, with a really soft surf themed t-shirt under a lightweight plaid button up.  The shorts are by Simply Styled and were on sale for $8.99.  They have a dress look to them but feature a stretchy woven waist band that makes them extra comfy.

Once the first day is behind us, Aidan will likely be living in the Five Nights at Freddy’s Character T-shirt he got which was on sale for $7.99.  He is already begging to wear it, and I may head back to Sears to get some back-ups for when he wears this one out.  With his t-shirts, he likes to wear soft basketball style shorts, so I grabbed him a basic pair of black Everlast shorts which were on sale for $7.99.

Gear-Up-With-Sears-characters

Once we left the boys section, Lilly went running to put a couple outfits together.  She was in awe at the table full of emoji t-shirts, but ended up finding a Shopkins one that had “the best Shopkins on it”.  The girl’s t-shirts were also just $7.99!  To go with it, I was able to find a pair of Bermuda length shorts by Roebuck & Co that were marked down to $11.99.  I love Bermuda length shorts for school, because I think they look more appropriate, however Lilly is a slim child so Bermuda styles often don’t fit right on her thighs.  These fit amazing, so I ended up getting a few of the same style.

Gear-Up-With-Sears-shopkins

Next, she found a pair of overalls that she “needed to have because they are way prettier than the plain ones from before”.  These were also from Roebuck & Co and a splurge at just $18.  We grabbed a basic white tee to go under them by Simply Style for just $3.99!

Gear-Up-With-Sears-Denim

With two outfits each to get started, we head over to the shoe section for new sneakers.  Sears is great place to gear up on affordable shoes, with all kids’ shoes on sale starting at just $9.99.  The twins both love Sketchers, the have been picking them out since pre-k, and Sears always has us covered!  Aidan wanted black and red because those are his football team’s colors, and Lilly wanted the brightest pair she could find that lit up.  Both pairs were on sale for $31.99.

Gear-Up-With-Sears-Sneakers
Lilly is a true girly girl, wanted a wall of shoes in her closet, so leaving the store with only one pair of shoes when she wanted to try on the entire isle was breaking her little fashionista heart.  However, as we turned the isle I saw these gorgeous sandals on sale for just $5.99!  They were an instant YES!

Gear-Up-With-Sears-Sandals

The last thing I wanted to get done was backpacks, and Sears has every type of backpack I could imagine.  Character backpacks, stylish backpacks, sporty backpacks, backpack kits, literally around every corner I found more backpacks.  I thought for sure Lilly would have went for a fun character one, especially considering they had her favorite princess designs.  But, nope, she got all grown up on me and decided she wanted one with a cool pattern.
When she picked up the JanSport one I had seen her eyeing all day, I instantly prepared to have to talk her out of it.  I had seen these backs before for over $80 and I wasn’t about to buy an 8-year-old an $80 backpack! but as always Sears didn’t let me down, it was on sale marked down to around $50.  Which still seems like a lot, but the quality is great and she uses one backpack all year.

Gear-Up-With-Sears-first-day-of-school-girls

After 3 hours in Sears, I left with 2 very happy kids, 4 outfits, 2 pairs of sneakers, a pair of sandals, and a backpack for under $200!  Plus, Sears is part of Shop Your Way, a free social shopping destination and rewards program so I earned points towards future purchases!

A style that is always a must have in my closet is white sneakers. I love how clean and preppy they look, and how versatile they can be.  So, when I saw the new Reebok Club MEMT sneakers at DSW my heart flutters!  They are so pretty with rose gold accents on the laces and within the Reebok logo.
I love how they look great paired with yoga pants, jeans, shorts or a flowy dress.

Reebok-at-DSW

I am a work at home mom in the middle of the summer school break.  To say my days are crazy, is an understatement, and each day is different.  Some days I’m at a coffee shop writing or at a blog event, Other days I’m at sports practice or doctor’s appointments with the kids, and then there is always days that take us to the zoo or on a surprise date with the hubby.  Life as a mom is unpredictable, add working from home to that and it becomes a beautiful crazy mess.  Choosing a shoe that can comfortably bring you from your morning walk to a night cap with your hubby without causing you to skip a step is important.

Best-mom-shoes

For me my new Reebok Club MEMT sneakers have become my go-to shoe every day because they keep me comfortable and stylish all day!

10 Beach Bag Must Haves For Busy Moms

Disclosure:  LOLL sent us a Beach Poncho to help facilitate this review, all opinions are 100% my own

throw a birthay party (1)

10 Beach Bag Must Haves For Busy Moms

Schools are letting out and that means summer break! Most parents take their kids to the pool or beach to let them play in the warm water and burn off some energy! If you are needing some help in knowing what to but in your beach bag then let me help!

Below I have compiled a list of items that are perfect to toss in your beach bag for busy moms! Getting out of the house is great for the kids but sometimes stressful for the mom. You have to make sure everything is packed and ready, and nothing gets left behind!

loll-coverup-giveaway

 Top Items to Have in Your Beach Bag

Sunscreen: Make sure you have packed up some sunscreen for the whole family. It should be applied around 30 minutes before heading out, and then re-apply after being in the water. I aim for doing this around every hour or so. Protecting your child’s skin as well as yours is important! You can also include bug spray, just in case you run into a swarm of mosquitoes.

Drinks and Snacks: Playing in the water and sun can really wear you out. Not to mention dehydrate you if you don’t stay up on fluids. Make sure to pack cold waters and a few snacks that won’t melt in the sun. Or pack a cooler to keep your snacks and drinks cold.

Baby Powder: Rub baby powder on your feet and legs when you go to leave the beach, it will remove the sand easily from our skin! You can buy a travel size, that won’t take up much room in the bag!

Wet Wipes: Make sure to have some Wet Ones hand wipes. They are a great way to clean your child’s hands if they get them dirty!

SPF Lip Balm: Aim for a lip balm that has an SPF of 15 or higher. Lips need to be protected as well, and having a lip balm with SPF will save the day.

Towels and A Cover-up for Mom: Make sure to pack towels for the whole family, so they can dry off and have a place to sit when they aren’t in the water. Let’s be honest, most moms want a cover up of some kind on! This LOLL poncho towel, is like a two in one. You can wear it to and from the beach, and while you are there, and use it to dry off after taking a dip in the water! The unique design is very flattering and helps hide those areas you don’t want to be seen! Allows you to change under it without flashing anyone, and is comfy! It is a great item for any mom looking for a cover up!

Beach Hat: If you are not planning on going in the water much, you might want to pack a beach hat. It is a great way to add a little shade, and add some fashion to your look! Floppy hats help keep the sun off your face, and look adorable on the beach.

Reading Material: If you are wanting to just relax, maybe pack a good book or a electronic reading device like a Nook or Kindle. It is a great way for you to enjoy some peaceful time for yourself while you watch over your kids playing.

Brush: Nothing is worse than getting out of the water and having your hair in knots. Remember to toss in a brush to comb through everyone’s hair.

First Aid Kit: You can buy smaller sized first aid kits, and these are great to have on hand, even if you leave in the car. You never know when the next cut or scrape will happen!

Five Ways to Make Dental Hygiene Fun! #TheraBreathKids

This is a sponsored post on behalf of The Motherhood,  All opinions are my own.

WAYS TO MAKE BRUSHING FUN!

Taking care of our teeth from a young age is very important.  Cavities are painful, dentist bills can be very expensive, poor hygiene causes bad breath, and uncared for teeth can result in some scary health issues.  So, starting our children off young, with good oral hygiene skills is imperative.  However, it’s not always the easiest parenting task.

Teaching kids to follow a dental hygiene routine can be hard, getting them to enjoy taking care of their teeth without any fuss, can seem nearly impossible at times.  Luckily, I’ve compiled a list of some easy things you can do that will have kids asking to brush their teeth.

Organic-kids-mouth-wash

Five Tips to Make a Dental Hygiene Routine Fun

Sing Songs and Make the Bathroom a Fun Area

I would bring my children to the bathroom sink singing some of their favorite songs, and danced as we put on the tooth paste and flossed.  Showing the kids that we could have fun as they brushed their teeth helped tremendously.

Use a Timer

Letting the kids see exactly how much time they have left to brush or swish mouthwash helps them know they only must do it for a short time and they can watch how quick the time is passing.  We use a sand timer our dentist gave us; however, I have seen some fun musical and light up ones.

Get Kids Fun Toothbrushes

Toothbrushes are available in practically every color and feature countless character options.  Let your child pick out a fun toothbrush that they love and they will likely want to use it all the time.  I know whenever we buy new toothbrushes, I don’t have to remind even my oldest son to brush.

Give Rewards

Remember as a child being able to go in the treasure chest after a good dentist appointment?  It sure did make me want to keep my teeth clean for next time.  Rewards work, try using stickers as a reward for each day they do a great job taking care of their teeth.

Choose a Great Tasting Mouthwash

Mouthwash helps prevent cavities and keeps kid’s teeth healthier.  But in order get children to successfully swish for the time needed, the mouthwash must taste great.  We started using TheraBreath for Kids! Oral Rinse and the kids can’t get enough of it.  The yummy grape flavor keeps them swishing for the full minute as directed.  TheraBreath Kids is a healthy mouth wash option for children 6 and older.

5 Ways to Celebrate Spring with Oshkosh B’gosh!

This post is sponsored by Everywhere Agency on behalf of OshKosh B’gosh; however, all thoughts and opinions expressed are my own.

Oshkosh-Spring-3

After a long cold winter, there is nothing better than the sight of a tulip popping through the soil, or the racks of bright clothing being displayed at your favorite stores.  Knowing things are growing, the weather is improving, and the days are getting long brings us joy and energy.
So let’s celebrate!  Here’s 5 ways we plan to celebrate spring.

Oshkosh-Spring-1

Ways to Celebrate Spring!

Splash in a Puddle
“April Showers bring May Flowers” so let’s celebrate those gloomy days, knowing the sunshine is right around the corner.  Put on a pair of rainboots and let the kids jump in the biggest puddles they can find.

Plant a Garden
Nothing feels springier than a bright bouquet of flowers.  Enjoy a beautiful spring day outside in the sun planting a pretty flower bed with the kids.  Make it as colorful as possible with a variety of Daisies, Tulips, and Sun Flowers.  

Get Active Outside
After spending the winter cooped up inside, it feels great to be able to get your heart pumping in the fresh air on a sunny day.  Go for walks after dinner, take the kids on a bike ride, or head to the neighborhood playground.

Oshkosh-Spring-2

Have a Picnic
Pack up some sandwiches, a blanket, and maybe some bubble or sidewalk chalk and head to the beach or a local park for a picnic.  Eat outside, play, read, just enjoy the slower pace and the fresh air while soaking in some vitamin D.

Oshkosh-Spring-6

Get New Clothes
With spring comes spring cleaning, that magical time when we get to open all the windows and let the air in.  When we purge all the things we don’t need any more and get rid of all the clutter in the house.  I love the feeling I get walking into my house during the months of spring.  After spending at least, a week deep cleaning everything, the house feels fresh and welcoming.  
However, with my big annual purge, I end up dropping bags and bags of kid’s clothes for donation.  All the outdated and outgrown clothes go out the door, and all the heavier fall and winter clothes get boxed up till next year.  This can leave the kid’s closets looking bare, so we like to take an annual shopping trip to freshen up their wardrobes.  
We all load into the car and head out for a fun day of shopping.  There is a lot of outdoor shopping centers close to us, and the spring weather makes them perfect.  Not to hot when you are lugging shopping bags around and not to cold when you want to sit at the play area.
The first and most of the time only store we need is Oshkosh B’gosh.  I remember my mother shopping there when I was a kid, so of course once I became a mom myself, Oshkosh became my go to store.
They have age appropriate clothes, that are comfortable and come in styles my picky kids love.  Plus it has a huge convenience factor, I can buy all the kids clothes, shoes, and accessories in one spot at affordable prices and a great variety.  I can buy everything I need from dress up outfits for church, to play clothes.
Oshkosh-Spring-14
On my last trip to Oshkosh, I bought Lilly and Aidan each 2 outfits.  For the first outfits, I chose bright colored pieces with fun patterns, that screamed spring.

Oshkosh-Spring-11

Aidan can’t get enough of this shark shirt.  He has worn it so many times that I haven’t been able to get it back in his closet, he grabs it as soon as he sees it coming out of the dryer.

Oshkosh-Spring-12

Lilly loves her “Pink Outfit” because it’s her favorite color and she loves anything bright girly.  I love that Oshkosh’s shorts have a decent inseam, for little girls!  

Oshkosh-Spring-13

For the second outfits, I went with more dressy styles.  The kids have a lot of school functions in the spring as well as church on Sunday’s so they always need some nice dress up options.

Oshkosh-Spring-7

When I saw the pink boy shorts, I needed them!  They are so cute!  The plaid shirt coordinates perfectly, and the sleeves roll up so he can wear it all year long.

Oshkosh-Spring-4

Lilly got a pretty denim colored dress with a rope belt. It coordinates well with Aidan’s outfit and she is always asking to wear dressed, so I liked that this one was casual enough to wear anywhere.

Oshkosh-Spring-9

The kids loved every style they saw, so I will surely be visiting Oshkosh again soon to stock up on fun spring and summer essentials.  Are you ready to freshen up your child’s wardrobe?  Now’s the time, we have a coupon just for you!   Use Online Coupon Code OKBG3270 and code 036602 in stores (click on the coupon below to print) to save 25% off $40+ purchase!

Love Your Hair!

This post is sponsored by Dove. All opinions are my own.
11539758_10153467408629850_438685412_o
A girl and her hair, her hair can be a source of joy or her worst enemy.

I have straight to wavy fine hair so when my daughter came out with thick curly hair, I was at a loss about how to care for it.
My biggest fear though was her not realizing how incredibly beautiful her hair was because I couldn’t figure out what to do with it.  I remember having her on my lap screaming as I tried to brush through her dry curls, at the end we were both in tears.  From that day on, I realized how important it was for me to learn how to care for her beautiful curls so that her confidence never wavered because of her at times unmanageable tresses.  
img_6822
As she’s grown, we have both learned how and when to brush her hair, what styles she likes, and what to use on her thick strong hair to keep it looking and feeling amazing.  Now at 7, she loves her hair.  When she combs it herself she is not shy about telling everybody she has beautiful hair and that makes me proud.
img_6812
I am excited to team up with Dove to share about their “Love Your Hair” campaign because there is a narrow depiction of what “beautiful hair” is believed to look like and earlier this year, Dove Hair found that 8 in 10 women feel pressure to wear their hair a certain way.  For many, these pressures begin at an early age.  In my culture long and straight hair is thought to be beautiful.  While I have at times fallen into the trap of thinking my hair needed to be straightened every day, I never wanted my daughter to feel like she needed to flatten out her full and bouncy curls.
img_2586

Dove Hair believes a positive role model can greatly impact a girl’s confidence. In fact, a recent Dove study found that 82% of girls learn to care about themselves from their mother.

These findings don’t surprise me.  My daughter has watched me style my hair, put on makeup, and has been trying on my high heels since she started to walk.  Our daughters are always watching us and as mothers, we can make a difference and help ensure our daughters grow up feeling confident.

Celebrate the beauty of your daughter’s hair today–so she loves her hair tomorrow!

Beauty without Compromise’ with Sensodyne® True White®

This post was sponsored by Sensodyne® as part of an influencer activation for Influence Central. Sensodyne® compensated me in connection with statements made in this post.  All opinions expressed in this post are my own

Have you ever stopped to think about how much us women put ourselves through to look beautiful?  I mean seriously, I had hot wax slathered on my face today just to rip out my upper lip hairs along with the top layer of skin. 

Then there’s the hair appointments, granted this routine I love, sitting in a salon chair without a care in the world for 6 hours.  While the hair dresser layers enough tinfoil on my head to get TV reception and then dryes it straight.
Although if I could buz it out like my husband hair, I would have an extra 6 hours by the pool with the kids.  Oh and we wont get started on the stilleto’s that look gorgeous on, but cause my sciatica to act up and my feet to feel sore for 48 hours after wearing them.  But lets face it, as women we like to look beautiful and we put up with the pain to get the look we want.
sensodyne-true-white
In a study by the makers of Sensodyne® True White®87% of women said that having a white, shiny smile is important to them.  Luckily the one thing that can pull any look together, a killer smile, can be obtained PAIN FREE with Sensodyne® True White®.  

Sensodyne® has been on my bathroom sink since I had my twins.  Not only did my two little bundles of joy stretch out my belly and create a road map of stretch marks, they also left my teeth very sensitive.
I remember the sensitivity in my teeth like it was yesterday, I was constantly using straws so that nothing cold would touch my teeth.  Finally a close friend turned me on to Sensodyne® and I’ve been using it ever since.
sensodyne

A bright white smile shows confidence and
aludes beauty, so when I would walk down the toothpaste aisle I alway wanted to try some sort of whitening routine.  Unfortunetly I knew they would just lead me to more sensitivity.
That was until now, I am so excited to share that now, you can turn to Sensodyne® True White® for a whiter smile and sensitivity relief, without the compromise.

 Sensodyne® True White® is 10x less abrasive than many leading whitening toothpastes*, providing gentle stain removal and active stain protection.

This means we no longer need to compromise for beauty.  With twice daily brushing, Sensodyne® True White® provides sensitivity relief and helps whiten your teeth.  Now if only every aspect of our beauty routine could be this easy!

Healthy Timeless Hair with Living Proof! #AgeWisely

This post was sponsored by Ulta as part of a Blog Blast Activation for Influence Central. I received complimentary products to facilitate my review.
As a busy mom it is hard to schedule a large slot of time to dedicate to my hair.  Every time I visit the salon to get a color and cut, my mind starts making lists of all the things I could be doing with those hours lost sitting in my hairdressers chair.

How I Keep My Hair Healthy and Platinum!

I have had Blonde hair my entire life.  I grew up a “tow-head” with the whitest naturally blonde hair and it stayed pretty light through my early teens.
Then it started to darken to a yellow shade of dark blonde.  I love the platinum so I had to do something and that meant bleach.  I have had my hair highlighted or bleached platinum ever few months for the last couple decades.  This takes a toll on my hair, bleach can be very damaging and dry out my hair if I don’t take care of it.  The platinum color can also easily become brassy if I use the wrong products on it.
The perfect combination for me to keep my platinum hair shiny, non brassy, and healthy is rotation washes between purple shampoo and conditioner, and a moisturizing sulfate free shampoo and conditioner.  Along with a weekly high quality deep conditioning treatment.
