Back to School with Momtrends #btsstyle

It’s hard to believe that in a few short weeks, this queen bee will have two littles in school full-time.  In keeping up with all things trendy and in the loop, I attended yet another fabulous event hosted by Momtrends. Set in the Vera Bradley showroom, I caught the latest buzz in BTS.

Vera Bradley:  Having always been a fan of the Vera Bradley bag (just asked my hubby just how many Vera pieces I needed to bring on our honeymoon!) I loved learning about this decades old company from the founder herself. She started her company with a $250 loan, a few local seamstresses, and a dream~what an inspiration. I loved hearing about she hand checked each and every bag until her standards were met and her brand established. Vera Bradley offers a wide-range of bags from totes, to adorable printed backpacks and lunchbags for the kids to headbands and jewelry. I also love their line of office supplies, nothing like having a super organized yet stylish and attractive space to work or complete homework.

BTS

Stride-Rite: We have always been big fans of Stride Rite and this BTS will be no different. I love the mix of bright colors with the durable and reliable structure for which Stride Rite is known. My dad always taught me, good shoes or no shoes! and we love the comfort, support and wearability of Stride Rite shoes and sneakers. Big this season are slip ons from Marvel and light ups featuring your favorite Disney characters.  Whether you’re shopping uniform, sneakers, lace-up or maryjanes, Stride Rite has the latest looks and styles in quality shoes for kids of all ages.

French Toast: Looking for an affordable solution to uniforms and classic pieces for BTS? French Toast offers quality pieces that are stylish and have little touches that make wearing a uniform anything but ordinary. Who doesn’t need a classic navy sweater or a crisp white blouse featuring an adorable peter pan collar?

Mabel’s Labels: Bears repeating how much I love to get, and stay organized. A place for everything and everything in its place is super easy with labels from Mabel’s Labels. My latest find? write-on/wipe off labels, perfect for the kids’ playroom! Mabel’s Labels can be personalized in more ways than one and I swear stick and stay in place (even through the wash!) without peeling, shrinking or deteriorating. BUT come time to remove them, off they come, no fuss, no muss. I can’t explain it but I am a big fan and a returning costumer! (Great for BTS or as a holiday stocking stuffer?!)

Vamousse: Not to bring up a subject that gives everyone an instant case of the itches, but lice is a fact of life in school-age children. Be proactive and stock up on homeopathic Vamousse Lice care and prevent as well as treat head-lice naturally. Works quickly, is safe AND effective, is non-toxic and pesticide free.

Wall Pops: Easy to stay organized with the fun decal-esqu decorations and office/school supplies from Wall-Pops.  I love all of the choices Wall Pops removable art offers, from to do lists to room makeovers, Wall Pops has a removable, easy to apply wall decoration just right for BTS.  We already stuck our easy to remove, wipe off calendar to our kitchen wall and wasted no time filling up with all of our family events and happenings.

The Orange Rhino: I was initially drawn to The Orange Rhino for a silly reason as orange is my favorite color. But I soon discovered a must-have and must-do for all parents~a way to live a more peaceful life~one with less yelling and more loving. The Orange Rhino is about one’s mom’s 365 day journey to “yell less and love more”. You’ll be sure to find tips, honest feelings and a whole lot of anecdotes to which any parent can identify. I love how raw her posts are and find  inspiration, support and camaraderie each and every time I visit her site and am now ready to take The Orange Rhino challenge myself, are you?

Revolution Foods: Say goodbye to unhealthy lunches filled with preservatives, and unwanted fillers. Revolution Foods  makes meal kits that are chef-created, kid inspired real meals on the go.

Pack-it Freezable- An ingenious way to keep kids’ lunch cold all day. Simply freeze the stylish bag, pop in your lunch and viol`a, cool temperature safe food, ready when they are. (love the fun designs) and don’t fret parents, they have Packit Freezables in all sorts of shapes and sizes just right for you too!

 

Other finds that I am loving:

Fiskars makes the best scissors (teachers ask for them by name!) loving the new stylish designs!
Sunscreen Bands make bands that change color in the sun reminding you to reapply and when you’ve had enough sun, perfect for busy families!
Dolphin Organics makes my favorite organic hair conditioner for kids. I love all of their safe, effective and soft-scented products and feel good about using non-toxic organic products on everyone in my family!

back to School

Thred-Up is my new favorite shopping site! It is the easiest way to consignment shop…online. Excellent quality, affordable prices!
For a healthy twist on the juice box, try Aquaball water. The kids will love the  unique shape and the lightly  flavored (naturally) water featuring their favorite characters.
For healthy smiles we all know to brush after every meal or least 2X a day, make it fun with the coolest in designer Toothbrushes from Brush Buddies.
Back to School often means BTS colds, coughs and allergies, offer your kids all natural relief from one of my go-to remedies from Zarbee’s~safe, and effective.
Kids need a little encouragement with their fruits & veggies? Libby’s makes single serving snacks, just right for the lunchbox.
Something new we’re giving a try is exploring gut health with probiotics. Florastor Kids makes the #1 probiotic to help balance and maintain intestinal health.
Best snack award goes to Nourish Snacks. Appetizing, yummy combinations of your favorite healthy snacks, packed with nutrition, great taste all in convenient portion packs.  (no GMOs, under 200 calories per packet and no artificial…anything!)

The Little Rockers Band, “Count Me in!” CD

 

The Little Rockers Band

Count Me In!, Little Rockers Music

15 April 2014

We love to listen to music in the car, at home and even on the go.   Our older two children have grown out of their “baby” CDs yet still love to sing along and be silly to good tunes and catchy lyrics.  (I feel like an old lady, but listening to “pop” music with the kids in the car can lead to conversations I am not ready to have with the under 20 crowd!) The Little Rockers Band latest CD, “Count Me In!” is due out April 15, and the kids and I just love it. The songs are fun, offer a variety of sounds and beats and are easier on the ears than other CDs geared towards kids. My 4-year-old prefers the CD over our nearly 6-year-old and I think it is a perfect CD for the toddler to preschool crowd (although the songs are catchy and I enjoy them too!) “Count Me In” offers an eclectic range of songs that get better and better with each listen! “Count Me In!” is not your typical “kids’ music CD, it’s a creative set of songs, with cool beats and memorable lyrics touching upon subjects that interest your little ones!

With a Parents’ Choice® Award for their 2012 album Playing in the Band proudly in hand, New Jersey’s The Little Rockers Band takes the next step in their rise to national prominence with the band’s third kids’/family CD, Count Me In!

Photo Credit: Photography by Rebecca

It’s a rocking dance party all the way on this album. Count Me In! stays the course, with The Little Rockers Band remaining true to their commitment to creating music that speaks to children’s real life experiences through songs as varied in style as their subjects. On Count Me In! families will hear a ’90s rocker, a ’50s style rave up, a honky-tonk country tune, a Motown scorcher, a beachy/acoustic cover of a Paul Simon classic, and more.

About the The Little Rockers band:

Co-founders Chris & Jessie Apple bring a little bit of Broadway (Jessie) and a little bit of rock & roll (Chris) to The Little Rockers Band. Both worked extensively as performers by night and pre-school music teachers by day before teaming up to create music for kids and their parents as full-time teaching artists and family musicians.

The husband-and-wife team of Chris & Jessie Apple started Little Rockers, cool kids music classes™ in 2009, beginning with about 30 families. More than 500 families now take their classes (35+ classes a week in 13 locations, and counting), and they employ 16 additional Teaching Artists. Chris & Jessie teach together during the day, deal with administrative matters in the afternoon, and write at night.

The Little Rockers Band, which also began in 2009, was originally conceived as a laboratory ensemble that would design music and curriculum for Little Rockers music classes. The band has since grown to become the focal point of a number of creative/educational projects, including live shows, webisodes, and school assembly programs.

 

Count Me In! will be available at LittleRockersMusic.com, amazon.com, and iTunes.

Donate Stuff, Create Jobs: Goodwill Campaign

Hello Springtime! Finally it seems as if the winter in NY is over and along with sunny skies and budding flowers comes the urge to purge. We are in the process of redecorating our living room and before we bring anything else into the cleanly painted space, we are making a trip (or several) to Goodwill .  When we donate things we no longer have a need for to Goodwill, I feel good that we are keeping usable goods out of a landfill as well as giving a new life to our no longer needed belongings.  We are also reorganizing our den in the basement and are looking for a solid wood bookshelf to finish off the space, our local Goodwill offers so many pieces of furniture in great shape for an unbeatable price. Shopping at goodwill is good for our wallet, and Mother Earth (perfect in time for #earthday)

Goodwill is in the midst of their #7DaysofSpringCleaning campaign. In addition to donating some pieces of furniture, we are going room to room with a large basket and tossing in any thing that have not used in a while, no longer need (hello baby gear!) or no longer want. This is a great way for us to see an immediate impact and get more organized.

Goodwill is encouraging everyone to participate, if they like, in #7DaysofSpringCleaning by urging people to focus on cleaning different areas of their home for seven consecutive days.  I’m here to inspire you to get a fresh start too!

Day 1) Clear your closet clutter

Day 2) Time to tackle the kitchen

Day 3) Spread holiday cheer (holiday decorations, center pieces, Halloween)

Day 4) Downsize your tech toys (used laptops)

Day 5) Clean out your office supplies

Day 6) Provide quality entertainment (unused movies, video games)

Day 7) Downsize your bookshelf

I never stopped to think about just how much of an impact I was making until I used THIS  job calculator. I encourage you to click the link to see how many hours of service programs your donations could create right in your community.

Did you know that donating one bag of clothing and one bag of books can equal up to 2.3 hours of on-the-job training for someone in your community? Add to that a used lamp, a dusty computer and perhaps a box of DVDs and CDs, and that number nearly doubles to 5.2 hours.  Isn’t creating jobs a great excuse for spring cleaning?   Your donation of used clothing or household goods to Goodwill helps create jobs directly in your community.

That’s right: Donate Stuff. Create Jobs. It’s the tagline of Ad Council’s campaign with Goodwill®, which reminds people that their donations support people who are seeking to earn jobs and build careers. To see how the process works, just watch our “How We Do It” PSA.

 Here’s an interesting YouTube video about the impact your donation makes:  “Donate Stuff. Create Jobs” YouTube Video

A simple item donated to Goodwill® can help provide job training programs, employment placement services and other community-based programs for people who have disabilities, lack education or job experience, or face other challenges to finding employment. In fact, Goodwill is the leading nonprofit provider of job training programs and career services in the United States and Canada.
Together with the Ad Council, we’re launching a brand new series of Public Service Advertisements (PSAs) that educate people about Goodwill’s role as a job creator. With the simple tagline, “Donate Stuff. Create Jobs., “the campaign seeks to highlight the role that Goodwill plays in promoting independence and dignity for people of all backgrounds.

#Evenflo Platinum Car Seat Takes us to #Woodloch Pines Family Resort

Thank you to #Evenflo and @theMoms for Sponsoring our wonderful family getaway to the beautiful #Woodloch Pines Resort.

Our life has been quite a whirlwind for the last few months. Our oldest started Kindergarten, our middle went off to preschool full time and our baby girl made her appearance nearly a month early. Add in sickness, bad weather and house renovations, and you have one crazed mama. Thanks to @themoms, and Evenflo, off we went to Woodloch Pines Resort where we were able to reconnect and spend three glorious days together.  No cooking, cleaning, chores, homework, or schedules and it was JUST what this family of 5 needed.

Woodloch Pines Resort  is a family centered, all inclusive resort located in the beautiful Poconos (PA). Even the car ride through the beautiful scenery rejuvenated us. Woodloch has so much to offer, from planned activities for all ages, to an indoor swimming pool and splash park to bumper cars, and an indoor playground, there was always something to do. We found the room to be clean, neat and the rooms were modest in size but easily fit a pack n play while easily accommodating the rest of us (and all of our things!). We thought the layout of the space was just right ~ offering both a living room as well as a nice sized bedroom. This was perfect for our family as we were able to tuck all the children in the bedroom and the hubs and I were able to cozy up and watch movies together in the living room.  Our room had two bathrooms, a well-appreciated fridge, as well as plenty of closet and drawer space. We thoroughly enjoyed waking up to the beautiful view, and especially loved our little balcony where we took in the fresh mountain air.  Each meal offered a variety of food choices and if nothing was to your liking, the staff was more than willing to find something that suited your needs be it preference or dietary restriction. But being at Woodloch Pines Resort was not about the room, or the pool or the dining hall, it was all about family togetherness. I loved that we sat down for each and every meal, three times a day, with zero distraction and lots of time to chat, laugh and just be together and enjoy the stunning view of Lake Teddyuskung. The staff was friendly, willing to go the extra mile to make sure we were having a good time and met our every need and request with patience, kindness and efficiency. Woodloch is just a happy place to be.

A bit about Woodloch Pines Resort

  • Woodloch is nestled in the picturesque wilderness of the Pocono Mountains lake region, just 90 miles from midtown Manhattan.
  • Woodloch was just named the number TWO large hotel for families in America by TripAdvisor.com for the second straight year.
  •  Woodloch offers an endless variety of activities and adventure for all ages,all year long.
  •  From our zany Woodloch Winter Olympics and Cupcake Wars to ice skating on our pristine lake and snowshoeing through the nature trails, there’s something for everyone.
  • Woodloch’s sister properties The Lodge at Woodloch, a destination spa resort, and Woodloch Springs, a championship style golf course
    offer a different experience, making sure our guests will find exactly what they want in a destination vacation.
  • 1-800-966-3562 to make reservations
To make our three hour drive to Woodloch Pines Resort comfy, cozy and safe, Lil Bee, 4, had a chance to put the Evenflo Platinum Symphony™ DLX All-In-One Car Seat to the ultimate test. The first thing you notice about this car seat is how it envelops your child. I tried it my nearly 6 year old as well as my 4 year old and it fit them both extremely well and they both noted how comfortable they were in it and how easy it was for them to get in and out. I have already had two moms stop me and inquire about this awesome car seat. I loved sharing with them all that I love about it, but my daughter chimed and said, “It is comfy and I have two cup holders!”
The top 6 things I LOVE about the Evenflo Platinum Symphony™ DLX All-In-One Car Seat:
*it offers amazing technology to keep my child safe, protected, cool and comfortable with the OUTLAST® Performance Fabric
* it was SUPER easy to install CORRECTLY
* it adjusts to accommodate different height children in seconds WITHOUT having to remove and rethread the harness (YIPPEEE)
* *** FAVORITE! The unique and one of a kind Buckle pockets to prevent the buckles from getting too hot and potentially burning your child (didn’t get to try these yet as it is still frigid here, BUT I always have to cover the kids’ belts with a cloth to avoid burning them when they return to their seats, I am SO glad I don’t have to remember this step anymore-GENIUS!!)
*the expandable cup holders that fit any size bottle or cup (such a simple thing, but so convenient and appreciated!)
*it fits a child from 5-110 lbs, can be used rear and forward facing and as a booster

A Word from the folks at Evenflo:

The new Evenflo Platinum Symphony™ DLX All-In-One Car Seat is among our award-winning car seats that carry forward our passion for products that foster a safer, more peaceful ride.

Featuring OUTLAST® Performance Fabric that absorbs hot and cold temperature, releasing as needed. Balancing your child’s body temperature for a safer, more peaceful ride. Our new Buckle Pockets protect from hot buckle burns and eliminate digging under your child for lost buckles. Advanced SureLATCH® Technology helps provide a secure installation in less than 60 seconds! Simply click the LATCH into your vehicle and push down to hear and feel the seat auto tighten.

Evenflo continues to go above and beyond government standards to provide car seats that are 2X the Federal Crash Test Standard. In addition to this, this seat includes e3 Side Impact™ Protection, which is designed and tested to reduce side impact forces up to 50%.

Features: OUTLAST® Performance fabrics, Buckle pockets, e3 Side Impact™ protection, converts to booster, 65 lb. harness weight rating, SureLATCH® connectors, Infinite Slide™ harness, upfront harness adjust, machine-washable pad, energy-absorbing foam, cup holders, made in the USA

The Evenflo Platinum Symphony retails for $249.99 and can be found at Babies r Us!

 

I was not compensated for this post. Thank you to the moms and Evenflo for a complimentary night stay at Woodloch Pines Resort. We chose to extend our weekend on our own dime and it was the best decision we could have made.
