Aveeno Baby Natural Protection Face Stick Sunscreen Review

Monday, July 27, 2015

DISCLOSURE: I received a free sample of Aveeno Baby Natural Protection Face Stick from Crowdtap to facilitate this review. All opinions are my own.

My kids love being outside. They love going to the pool, to the beach and just playing with their bikes and scooters. With them spending so much time outside, I make sure they're protected from the sun. Luckily, they've inherited my skin and tan before they burn. But, I still like to use at least SPF 30 sunscreen on them before they go outside.

I recently had the chance to try out Aveeno Baby Natural Protection Face Stick Sunscreen. Usually, I use a generic store brand face stick or lotion sunscreen on my kids' faces. On myself, I just use a facial moisturizer than has SPF protection built in.

Aveeno Baby Natural Protection Face Stick contains 100% naturally sourced sunscreen ingredients and is SPF 50. It's formulated with ACTIVE NATURALS Colloidal Oatmeal and mineral ingredients (Titanium Dioxide and Zinc Oxide) to help provide a protective barrier on top of the skin for superior sun protection. It can be used on sensitive skin, oil-free, fragrance-free, hypoallergenic, sweat and water resistant for 80 minutes.

I know I should take a multivitamin each day. I don't eat well enough some days to make sure I get all the vitamins and minerals I need. But, I hate taking pills. Often, they're big and hard to swallow. Chewables often have a chalky texture that I don't like. So, I usually buy gummy vitamins.

Recently, I had the chance to try the new Centrum MultiGummies. They're an adult gummy multivitamin that's designed to help support your energy, immunity and metabolism. They include 100% or more of Vitamin B12, D and E.

Product benefits include:
  • ENERGY - B-vitamins can help support daily energy needs*
  • IMMUNITY - Antioxidants, such as Vitamins C, E and Zinc, can help support normal immune function*
  • METABOLISM - B-vitamins can help in the metabolism of fats, carbohydrates and proteins*
  • WHOLE BODY HEALTH - It also includes key nutrients important for overall body health*

Legendary Fertility Statues And More at Ripley's Believe It Or Not - Baltimore, MD - Review

Sunday, July 12, 2015

DISCLOSURE:  This is a sponsored post in conjunction with USFamilyGuide.com I received free admission in exchange for a review.  No further compensation was provided.   All opinions are my own.

Earlier this month, my family and I had the chance to visit the Ripley's Believe It of Not museum in Baltimore's Inner Harbor. It was our second time visiting and we had a great time!

We visited on a Friday morning. It had only been open for about 45 minutes and so it wasn't very crowded. The lobby portion of the museum has a few exhibits on display that you can view without admission, including a new exhibit that just opened in June.

The Legendary Fertility Statues will be on display in Baltimore, as part of its fourth world tour. Hundreds of people believe that simply touching the statues helped them get pregnant!

I've been waiting all year for this! MommyCon is finally coming to Washington, D.C.! The natural parenting conference will be held at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center on Saturday, August 22 from 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM.

Frozen Fever Party Book Review

Tuesday, July 7, 2015

DISCLOSURE: I received a free copy of Frozen Fever Party Book to facilitate this review. All opinions are my own.

If your kids are anything like mine, then I'm sure there was a time when Frozen was stuck on repeat in the DVD player. Or maybe it still is! It's the only Disney Princess movie my youngest daughter has seen and so she calls all the Disney Princesses "Anna" and "Elsa."

I have yet to see the short film, Frozen Fever, that was shown earlier this year in theaters before the live-action Cinderella movie. But, I'm sure once it's released on DVD, it will quickly become a family favorite.

I recently had the chance to check out a party book based on Frozen Fever. It's a wonderful book with step-by-step instructions on how to make your Frozen Fever Party a perfect day, just like the party Elsa, Kristoff and Olaf threw for Anna!
