Teaching Kids to Love Themselves

I’m sharing #LISTERINE in my life as part of a LISTERINE® sponsored series for Socialstars™ #Sonicare

As you may recall, I touched a bit about the weight of responsibility that I have felt over teaching my child to be confident and bold in who she is. It was one thing that I never thought about when I looked into the future and thought about what life might be like as mother. Although she is only four years old, I want my daughter to grow up loving herself from the beginning so that she doesn’t have to create that self love later on.

Today she was given the opportunity to give a little talk in church about treating our bodies well. I had helped her get the talk ready and I truly hope that the message came across to her as we practiced and as she spoke today. The message she shared was that she was born prematurely and wasn’t a healthy baby but through the help of the NICU nurses, she was able to come home as a healthy baby. She had to continue to work to be healthy so that she could grow up to be the healthy little girl that she is today. She talked about how our bodies are gifts and that we need to treat them with kindness in both how we treat them and how we speak about them. Although it was just a little talk given to small children by a four year old, I hope the spirit of the message came across clearly.

It is so important to love ourselves! [Read more…]

New York: Earth’s Finest City Guide by FIJI Water

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of FIJI Water for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

Did you know that FIJI Water does more than just bring us the smoothest, most delicious water around? They also create incredible city guides for cities all over the world! I checked them out and now I am itching to travel! I loved reading their Earth’s Finest City Guide – New York because it is one place I have actually been to. It was fun to see all of the great attractions that I missed out on because it gives me an excuse to go visit again!

One of the places I know I will have to visit next time I am in New York, is Brooklyn Flea! I had no idea it was there until reading this guide and now I am dying to go!

It is amazing that an entire city guide could be created about a city that I have already visited and yet, I haven’t been to a single place they mentioned! I think there is a trip to NYC that needs to happen! I love seeing a different view on the city that they offer.

The first time I visited New York City, I did all of the things a typical New York City tourist would do, but this guide offers a different view. The places they suggest aren’t as much as tourist attractions as they are, just really cool parts of the city. Who wants to visit NYC with me now?

I think it is really cool that FIJI Water has taken the time to create these city guides for people to be able to really enjoy their travel. Be sure to check out FIJI Water on Facebook and on Twitter to get more info about their city guides and their FIJI Water Delivery that offers FIJI Water with free delivery to your door!

Making Good Hair Days with Sam’s Club and Garnier®

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Sam’s Club. All opinions are 100% mine.

We have all had our fair share of bad, craptastic hair days. They are the worst! That is what makes having a good hair day even more sweet. I have naturally curly, crazy thick hair. It isn’t exactly the hair I would have asked for, but it is what I was given! In order to have a good hair day, I have to start out in the shower. I have to use a shampoo and conditioner made to slick down the wild curls I have. Once I find a good shampoo and conditioner, it is the WORST thing ever to run out of it. Well, I am now in luck because you can buy Garnier products at Sam’s Club including the Sleek N Shine® Shampoo and Conditioner from Garnier®!

You heard that right! You can now buy Garnier® products at Sam’s Club including Color Shield® shampoo and conditioner and Sleek N Shine® shampoo and conditioner so you don’t have to worry about running out of your favorite Garnier® as often and you will be getting a great deal on them too.

Do you use Ganier® producst? I would love to know what products you use! What special hair needs do you deal with daily that Garnier® products could help you with?

Beauty Tips to Combat Allergy Face

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Zyrtec for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

It is THAT time of year again! Allergy season! I suffer from seasonal allergies in Spring and Fall, so I am starting to feel my eyes water up again because Fall is coming upon us! Soemthing that helps me a lot with my alleries, is Zyrtec. They are a trusted name that I have used for years.

Zyrtec just started a really awesome campaign to help fight ALLERGY FACE! You know what I mean when I say Allergy Face, right? Those red, watery eyes. Red, sometimes crusty nose. Not exactly the best look to have. So, now Zyrtec has completely set up their arsenal against allergies! Where Zyrtec makes you feel better, their beauty tips make you look better when you have a bit of an Allergy Face.

It is interesting to see how many women feel like they suffer from Allergy Face! Two thirds of women feel like they look unattractive when they are suffering from allergy symptoms. When the Fall fashion is so fun to play with, it would be a total waste if you didn’t feel like your face looked good too!

Zyrtec has made a series of videos to watch and articles to read so that you can fight your specific Allergy Face symptoms. They have done a lot of great info so that you can tailor specifically to your own needs. For me, I tend to get a little bit of a crusty nose and my eyes water. To fight that, I use extra moisturizer on my nose when I go to bed and I stay away from powder foundation on my nose. For my eyes, I wear waterproof mascara and eyeliner so that my makeup doesn’t run off when my eyes start watering.

They are always updating their Facebook page with more tips and links to their new Allergy Face resources so be sure to Check out Zyrtec on Facebook. What are your go to beauty tips when you are fighting Allergy Face?
