Fintastic Finds At The Georgia Aquarium

Thursday, April 27, 2017

DISCLOSURE: I received discounted admission in exchange for a review. All opinions are my own.

I love visiting aquariums. I've only been to a handful, including the National Aquarium in Baltimore, MD, North Carolina Aquarium in Roanoke Island, Sea World San Diego, Sea World Orlando and the Adventure Aquarium in Camden, NJ. But I think my favorite so far has been the Georgia Aquarium in Atlanta. I had a chance to visit during Spring Break this year and I loved it! There's so much to see and do at the Georgia Aquarium. But, to keep this post from getting too long, I'm just going to talk about my family's favorite things we saw and did.

Almay Healthy Glow Makeup + Gradual Self Tan - REVIEW

Monday, April 24, 2017

DISCLOSURE: I received free products from Crowdtap to facilitate this post. All opinions are my own.

I tan pretty well. If I spend enough time outside during the summer, I get pretty dark. This was me last summer, hanging out with my buddies, Wilbur and Orville Wright. That was after spending two weeks at the beach.

Tan and chilling with my homies
So, I've never even considered trying a self-tanner before. Yes, I'm more pale in the cooler months, but I actually prefer that over being too tan. Recently, I was sent a sample of Almay Healthy Glow Makeup + Gradual Self Tan. It combines a medium coverage makeup with a gradual self tanner.

NCircle Entertainment's Sonic Underground - Volume 2 DVD Set - REVIEW + GIVEAWAY

Sunday, April 23, 2017

DISCLOSURE: I received a free DVD from NCircle Entertainment for review purposes. All opinions are my own.

I wasn't familiar with the Sonic Underground series, but I was familiar with the Sonic the Hedgehog character. I used to play Sonic video games when I was growing up. When we received the DVD in the mail, my kids all knew about the show. Apparently, they had seen some episodes on Netflix.


Join Sonic (voiced by "Family Matters" Jaleel White), and his siblings, Sonia and Manic, as they fight to be reunited with their long-lost mother, Queen Aleena. In this second and final set of episodes, we return to Dr. Robotnik having his sights set upon Queen Aleena's crown jewel, which glows as it moves closer to her. Sonic, Manic, and Sonia need to recover the jewel before Dr. Robotnik does. They need to do this not only to find their mother but also to protect her from Dr. Robotnik. Will they succeed? When they aren't battling Dr. Robotnik and his henchmen, Sonic and his siblings make time for their rock band, Sonic Underground. With over seven hours of content, this final set is sure to showcase all the best Sonic episodes from the tunes to the great battles. Based on the popular SEGA videogame character, this Sonic the Hedgehog collection is a must-have for all Sonic fans!

Parragon April 2017 Book Buddies Box - Unboxing + Review

DISCLOSURE: As a member of the Book Buddies program, I received free books from Parragon Books to facilitate this post. All opinions are my own. Post may contain affiliate links.

It's definitely Spring. The weather has been oscillating between warm and sunny and cold and rainy. On a recent rainy day, we received a package from Parragon Books that helped brighten the day.

My kids look forward to their Book Buddies Box each month. They love getting new books! This month, our Book Buddies Box included three Disney Princess activity books and a Disney Pixar activity book. My 6-year-old son was excited about the Pixar book. He loves Inside Out and Finding Dory. And, of course, my three-year-old daughter loved all the Princess books.

PACT Organic - Super Soft Organic Cotton Clothing - REVIEW

Thursday, April 20, 2017

DISCLOSURE: I received this product for free from Moms Meet (, May Media Group LLC, who received it directly from the manufacturer. As a Moms Meet blogger, I agree to use this product and post my honest opinion on my blog. The opinions posted are my own.

I've been trying my best to make sure we eat healthier this year. I've been buying more natural and organic foods and steering away from foods that contain any artificial ingredients, colors, flavors or preservatives. I've also started trying to use more natural hair care and skincare products, as well as natural household cleaning products.

But, one area I haven't really delved into is organic clothing. I've taken a look at some brands, but haven't had the chance to try any of them. A lot of the brands seemed to be more expensive than I was willing to pay. Thanks to Moms Meet, I was introduced to PACT Organic.

DISCLOSURE: I received free admission to Legoland Discovery Center in exchange for a review. All opinions are my own. No further compensation was provided.

During Spring Break last week, we took a road trip down to Atlanta, Georgia. It was our first time visiting the area. Though we were only there for a couple days, we had a lot of fun checking out some of the things the city had to offer. On our first day, we had a chance to visit the LEGOLAND Discovery Center. Out of all the places we visited in Atlanta, it was what my kids enjoyed the most.

DISCLOSURE: I received a free DVD from NCircle Entertainment for review purposes. All opinions are my own. 

My six-year-old son loves dinosaurs. He owns several stuffed dinosaurs and other dinosaur toys. He likes reading about dinosaurs and watching TV shows with dinosaurs.

When the Dino Dan DVD arrived in the mail, he was super excited. He wanted to open the package and watch it right away. But, I had to take pictures first!
