Madame Irma Watches Teaches Kids to Tell Time in Style


We received a complimentary Madame Irma watch in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own. Until they’ve mastered numbers, understanding time is a really hard concept for kids to grasp. They have no idea how long an hour or even twenty minutes is, and so they ask again, and again, and again. The co-founder of Madame Irma watches found that his children and many of his friend’s children also found it difficult relating things to time. To fix this problem, he decided to create a new child-friendly way to understand time even if they haven’t mastered numbers […] Read more »

Relieve Your Sensitive Teeth with Colgate® Sensitivity Toothbrush + Built-In Sensitivity Relief Pen

Colgate Sensitive

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Colgate® Enamel Health™. All opinions are 100% mine. If you have sensitive teeth, you know that it can make eating some of your favorite foods a bit of a nightmare. There’s really little worse than that zapping feeling that goes through your entire mouth when you hit a sensitive spot! It kind of feels like chewing on tin foil. You know, like when you’re eating a piece of candy and you didn’t get all the wrapping off, and that foil hits your tooth? Well, for people with sensitive teeth, […] Read more »

HP Envy Touchsmart Laptop at Best Buy: A Gamer’s Dream! #AMDFX

HP Envy Touchsmart Laptop with AMD FX APU

I have been compensated in the form of a Best Buy Gift Card and/or received the product/service at a reduced price or for free. Ask my son what he wants to be when he grows up and he’ll tell you “a video game designer.” One day, I actually found filling out an online college application to a school with a great design program. He’s 9. I told him he has to finish elementary school first! Between now and then, he spends plenty of time “researching” for his future career. Basically, he plays games. Graphic-intense games that require a good machine. I’m always […] Read more »

Contigo: Where Sippy Cups Go to Grow Up + Gizmo Sip Water Bottle Giveaway #SpillProofGizmo

Contigo Gizmo 1

This post is brought to you by Contigo Gizmo Sip Water Bottle. All opinions are my own. If ever there was a magical land where sippy cups go to grow up, it’s Contigo. I’ve been using their cups for my son ever since I realized he was too old for a sippy cup. See, he actually prefers the style of a spill-proof cup. I definitely prefer them because I don’t have to clean up messes. But I can’t very well have my school-age son walking around drinking out of a sippy cup made for infants, now can I? Contigo Gizmo Sip Water Bottle […] Read more »

All Hail King Julien

Remember that cool lemur, King Julien, from the Madagascar series? Well, he thought it was a bit unfair that the Penguins got all the airplay with movies and TV series.

I’ll tell you a bit more about that in a minute, but first, let’s get to know the characters of All Hail […] Read more »

Together We Care About Nurses with Johnson & Johnson #TogetherWeCare


This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Johnson & Johnson Family of Consumer Companies for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine. My family is very passionate about promoting the appreciation of nurses. Did you know that I was a nursing student? I made it through a few semesters but left towards the end of the program due to personal reasons. It was a challenging program and a little difficult with a toddler at home, especially when I was essentially a single mom! My aunt, on the other hand, dedicated her life to the medical field. She […] Read more »

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of AllWhites Egg Whites. All opinions are 100% mine. I think by now we all know that I’m not exactly a culinary genius, right?
