I participated in an In-Home Party Activation on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Mattel. I received product samples to facilitate my party and a promotional item to thank me for participating.

As a child, I adored my Barbie dolls.  I remember one Christmas, my parents spent countless late nights building me a beautiful doll house for my beloved Barbies as a Christmas present.  It even had a swimming pool! It is one of my greatest childhood memories. Now, I am blessed with six daughters and have spent hours as an adult playing with Barbie dolls with my girls.  Barbie has been in my life for over 40 years! 

I recently had an opportunity to sit down with Kinsley and her friends to review the latest Barbie movie, Barbie and The Secret Door.  We all gathered together and had a Barbie Party! 

secretdoor

Kinsley invited her best friends, including a very brave little boy named Forrest!  We made some yummy cupcakes smothered in pink frosting and purple sprinkles – to match Alexa’s dress!  The girls were very excited about the movie – Forrest was very excited about the food.  We started the movie and the girls were mesmerized with a bright, colorful world of adventure and their favorite, unicorns!

barbie_partyBarbie stars as Alexa, a shy princess who discovers a secret door in her kingdom and enters a whimsical land filled with magical creatures and surprises! As Alexa travels through this fantastical world she meets new friends who ask for her help stopping a spoiled ruler from taking all the magic in the land. The values and lessons Alexa learns on her adventure teach children to find the courage to stand up for what’s right and that friendship has the most power of all!

The kids all loved the movie, even Forrest! After the movie, I asked the kids about their favorite part.  Here’s what they had to say:

Kinsley:  I loved when the magic wand cracked at the end and everything turned beautiful and they got their magic back.

Destiny: I loved when they mermaid got the tales back and the fairies got their wings back.

Emma: I love the secret door with flowers.

Forrest: I love the interesting creatures.

The kids all got to take home some Barbie and The Secret Door merchandise, which they LOVED!  We were sent three dolls and four books; a coloring books, reading book, sticker book and paint book.  Kinsley received the Alexa doll and when you push down on her arm, plays music and lights up the doll.

The kids had so much fun at our Barbie and the Secret Door screening.  You can have your own Barbie party because the DVD is available now, as well as the cool dolls and books. Check out the Barbie and the Secret Door website to find out where you can purchase the movie! It is available in stores and online. Don’t forget the pink and purple cupcakes!

September is Whole Grains Month!  Sponsored by the Whole Grains Council, it’s the perfect opportunity to “Make the Switch” and incorporate whole grain recipes into your diet. 

A great way to make the switch is with Roman Meal breads!  Roman Meal bread is always baked fresh, locally in regional bakeries across the United States, and delivered freshly baked to your local grocery store.  It is never shipped long distances or frozen making it as fresh as if you baked it yourself!

Turkey Brie Grilled Cheese

What are the benefits of Roman Meal whole grains?  Two slices of Roman Meal Bread has 21 grams of whole grains, more than 40% of the recommended daily value. Whole grains are a good source of vitamin D, calcium and fiber and help with digestion and weight management.  Studies have shown whole grain intake may even reduce the risk of heart disease!

Roman Meal whole grain bread is made from a sweet and soft whole grain blend of whole wheat, whole rye, wheat bran, wheat germ and flaxmeal, with hints of honey and molasses.  The taste? Heavenly!  Roman Meal is the great-tasting, light brown bread filled with natural whole grain goodness.  

IMG_0635Did you know Roman Meal has an extensive list of recipes to incorporate whole grains into your diet?  You can visit and find recipes for things like cobblers, stuffed tomatoes and some delicious sandwich recipes!

I looked over the recipes and found a great, easy recipe for a quick, healthy breakfast for our busy family in the morning – Whole Grain Florentine Egg Cups

recipe

These whole grain bread cups are stuffed with eggs, spinach and feta and super easy to make.  Just cut the crusts off a slice of bread, mold to a cupcake pan, bake for 20 minutes then take them out and fill with your eggs and toppings (I just did plain eggs and cheese for the kids). 

breadbowls

How easy is that?  And they were so yummy, the kids asked for them again!  Always a win for moms! Roman Meal is my favorite source of whole grains and my family loves the taste of their breads!

go-pro-button-finalWelcome to the Clean Air GoPro Giveaway Event, sponsored by Air Scrubber Plus and hosted by Happy Mothering. We’re excited to introduce to you Air Scrubber Plus, a revolutionary new technology to help clean the air and surfaces of your home all year round, and offer you the chance to win a GoPro Hero3 ($199 value)!

Air Scrubber Plus is a revolutionary new technology that can reduce air pollutants in your home, including VOCs (chemical odors), cigarette smoke, dust, pollen, mold, odor-causing bacteria and odors caused by pets and cooking.

These irritants can cause havoc in your home and trigger:

  • Allergies
  • Asthma
  • Chest Tightness
  • Cough
  • Nausea
  • Sinus Problems
  • Dizziness
  • Eye/Nose/Throat Irritation
  • Fatigue
  • Headaches

Eliminating toxins from the air and surfaces of your home can alleviate many of these serious health issues and help keep everyone in your home breathe easier, which is especially important with the upcoming cold and flu season. Air Scrubber Plus with ActivePure technology reduces up to 99% of the harmful contaminants, including surface mold, throughout your home.

This technology works just like Mother Nature cleansing the air with oxygen and hydrogen, so your indoor air quality can be naturally pure and clean. It even helps clean surfaces of your home, like toilets, doorknobs and countertops!

Another benefit of Air Scrubber Plus technology is that it can extend the life of your heating and air conditioning system by trapping dirt, dust and other debris before it can enter the filter and damage your system. A protected HVAC system can last up to 15 years or more at peak efficiency. However, a dirty, unprotected system may need to be replaced in as little as five years.

Adding Air Scrubber Plus technology to your home or office is easy too. A standard unit can cover up to 3,000 square feet, and can be installed by a professional heating, ventilation and cooling (HVAC) technician. The system uses your existing duct work and is mounted above your HVAC’s air handler, so it’s not visible inside your home and requires no maintenance.

If you are looking for ways to naturally improve the air quality in your home, ask your local HVAC technician about Air Scrubber Plus or visit their website today!

Enter the GoPro Giveaway!

To thank you for learning how the Air Scrubber Plus technology can help improve the air quality in your home, we are offering you the chance to win a GoPro Hero3, valued at $199! This giveaway is open to US residents only and runs through October 15, 2014 at 11:59 pm Eastern. Enter via the Rafflecopter form below. Good luck!

With winter just around the corner, now is the time to start preparations to prevent the spread of germs. I have teamed up with America’s Tooth Fairy and Vilah Bloom to provide my readers with some awesome tips on avoiding germ transmission and a giveaway for a Vilah Bloom Diaper Bag Clutch!

The America’s ToothFairy Kids Club is a free club developed to promote healthy smiles for all kids! Join the America’s ToothFairy Kids Club and receive educational activities, tips and personalized letters from the ToothFairy!  Each month, Kids Club members, their parents and caregivers receive educational activities that encourage healthier living for the entire family!  Each newsletter also includes tips and ideas for parents and caregivers that help you keep your child’s smile happy and healthy!

Vilah Bloom was born out of the necessity to provide modern, on the go moms a chic and truly functional alternative to the diaper bag. Designer and founder Jackelynn Garrett wanted to put a new spin on the traditional diaper bag by reinventing the popular coined phrase, “fashion meets function”. In doing so, a stylish diaper bag that dispenses wet wipes was created.

 
Tips on avoiding Germ Transmission:

  • Avoid spreading harmful bacteria to babies by washing pacifiers in warm soapy water; never “clean” a pacifier or bottle nipple by placing it in your own mouth.
  • Invest in a new toothbrush at least every three months and after every illness to avoid lingering bacteria and germs
  • Bags have one-hand wipe dispensers to avoid germ transmission!

With these tips in mind, I would like to introduce you to Vilah Bloom’s stylish clutch and tote style diaper bags with built in, one hand wipe dispensers to help prevent germs from spreading!

I received the below mentioned product free of charge to facilitate my review, however all opinions are my own.

VTech has a series of playsets, Go! Go! Smart Animals and Go! Go! Smart Wheels, that can connected together to create an entire world of interactive, imaginative play.  We recently had the opportunity to review the Go! Go! Smart Animals Tree House Hideaway Playset featuring the cutest little panda. 

Go! Go! Smart Animals Tree House Hideaway PlaysetThis isn’t your ordinary playset!  Like many VTech products the Go! Go! Smart Animals Tree House Hideaway Playsets incorporates interactive technology to not only spark imagination but foster learning in young children.  The playset is a colorful treehouse with track, swing, lift ramp, launcher, turning telescope and a even a basket elevator with working crank! As an added bonus, the house at the top doubles as a shape sorter with included shapes.

IMG_0601The the coolest part? There are five, special points located through out the play set that when you place the SmartPoint panda, he responds with different phrases, music or fun sound effects.  Children can learn about animals, play sing-along songs and more with the included SmartPoint panda or other SmartPoint animals (sold separately).  The SmartPoint Panda and locations teach animal names, colors, fun facts, as well as playing sing along songs and melodies.

The shape sorter is great for helping with hand and eye coordination for the younger children.  The shapes coordinate with their respective hole to assist in learning colors/matching as well as shapes.

IMG_0603The crank elevator basket is cute and unique.  Just set the Panda in the basket to take him up and down the playset.

IMG_0602Colorful tracks that can be connected to other Go! Go! Smart Animals or Go! Go! Smart Wheels playsets for even more fun and creativity!

The age recommendation for the Tree House Hideaway Playset is 1-5 years.  While I knew my grandson, age 3, would adore this product, I didn’t think Kinsley at five years old would have much interest.  She watched me put it together but what surprised me most, was the hour she spent playing with it once assembled – then again, later that night and the next morning.  She loved it, as she does all her Vtech toys.  Given that, I would say this absolutely does fit the age range nicely and would be a great playset for the long term.

IMG_0611With the VTech’s Go! Go! Smart Animals Tree House Hideaway Playset, children can learn language development, motor skills and imaginative play.  The playset adheres to the usual Vtech standard of quality and durability.  Retailing for $29.99, the VTech’s Go! Go! Smart Animals Tree House Hideaway Playset and other Go! Go! Smart Animals playsets make for years of creative play!
