Win A $100 Amazon Gift Card From Kid’s Academy (2 Winners)

This information is brought to you by Kids Academy. All opinions are my own.

Kids Academy button If you have  kids and a tablet – your kids probably always want to play with your tablet. Since we home school, I try to download apps that are educational and fun. If they are going to be “playing” I want them to be learning too! Kids Academy is a great app to let your kids learn while they play!

Kid’s Academy is all about helping children learn verbal, writing and math skills in an easy and fun manner. Apps such as 123 Tracing and Bingo ABC have been top-50 educational apps in the App Store, and Kid’s Academy has also brought the well-known stories and nursery rhymes The Three Little Pigs and Five Little Monkeys to life with interactive apps.

The simple interfaces of the apps allow children to take the reins and play on their own, but the sing-a-longs and other activities are perfect for parent or teacher engagement, as well. Research has shown that singing along with nursery rhymes has cognitive and physical benefits for children. Not only are children learning new words and the context in which to use them, but strengthening tongue and mouth muscles at an early age will help with pronunciation skills.

Kids Academy is hosting an awesome giveaway!  Head over, download the app, and write a review in the App Store.  At the end of August, Kids Academy will randomly choose 2 lucky winners who will each win a $100 Amazon gift card!

Beautiful Dresses From Cable & Gauge

Thanks to #CableAndGauge for my beautiful dresses. All opinions are my own. #CGFashion

Faux Wrap Dress

As a mom, I don’t get to buy myself a lot of new things. I will pick up a few things when I am shopping for my kids’ clothes, but nothing fancy for myself. My kids are constantly growing, so they need clothes. I have lost some weight, so it is finally time for me to update my wardrobe. My mom is a seamstress, but she can only alter my clothed so many times.

I was so excited when Cable & Gauge offered to send me a piece of clothing to review. As I search through their online store I had a very hard time picking out just 1 item I wanted. Beside being very fashionable, the prices were so affordable.

Twist Top Dress

They were extra generous and sent me 2 beautiful dresses. I received a Royal Blue – Twist Top Dress that sells for just $28.50 and Faux Wrap Dress that sells for just $31.50. These are products we can all afford. I like comfortable dresses that can be casual and fancy. Just add some accessories and wear them to a fancy event.

These dresses went above my expectations. This is a dress I will wear to church on Sunday and leave on all day! I have “dress” clothes that were so uncomfortable. I couldn’t wait to get home to change.

dress Collage.jpg

They fabric is light and breathable. It is made of 97% Viscose and 3% Spandax. It’s really easy to clean. Just wash in cold water and lay it flat to dry. I hate having to dry clean things! Plus the colors were amazing. I have a lot of dark colored clothing, but I decided to add some color to my wardrobe. Each style of dress comes in a variety of colors!



They also sell blouses, tees, cardigans, accessories, and more. You can find clothes for all your needs – work, casual, party, and more! Visiti Cable & Gauge today and buy yourself something pretty!


My Summer Vacation

Rays Family

How’s your summer vacation going? Mine has been a blast so far. I have been having so much fun hanging out with my family. You have probably noticed that I haven’t posted many recipes lately. That’s because I have hardly been cooking. I have a really big family so we have been having dinner with them a lot that I haven’t had time to bake or cook. I am really missing my desserts!

My husband can work just about anywhere in the world – so it makes it easier for us to spend weeks at a time visiting family. We have been in Florida for about 4 weeks doing so many fun things. We are staying with my sister. She also has 3 kids, so my kids are having a blast playing all day with their cousins.


Florida is a beautiful place to live an visit. If you follow me on Instagram, you saw some of my pictures from our visit to Clearwater Beach. The sand is like powder and it’s so relaxing.

One of the best places we have been to so far is Buccaneer Bay. It is part of Weeki Wachee State Park. It is a 2 park attractions. Once side is a water park with a swimming area, water slides, and a lazy river. I really love it because the water is always 72 degrees! Very refreshing on a summer day in Florida. On the other side is a mermaid show and a boat ride. It’s just $13 for adults and $8 for kids ages 6 and up. It’s a very affordable day for the family. (You can bring in your own food and drinks!)


We were able to go to a Tampa Bay Rays game with our kids. We watch every game with our kids on TV, so they were very excited to be able to attend a game together. We went early and we were able to get signatures from Yunel Escobar,  Jake Odorizzi, Brad Boxberger and Kevin Kiermaier. They have so many cool activities for the kids! There is an area for them to pet sting rays! After the game we were able to run around the bases and hang out in the outfield for a kid’s party. They do an awesome job making it a lot of fun for your kids.

Next we want to visit Busch Gardens. I have passes from City Pass to visit Busch Gardens. This is such a great way to save money for locals and tourists. They just launched in Tampa and I am excited to have a chance to use it. For just $119 an adult can visit Busch Gardens, The Florida Aquarium, Tampa’s Lowry Park Zoo, Clearwater Marine Aquarium, and Museum of Science & Industry. This is a huge savings if you want to visit these amazing attractions!

Earlier this month we visited family in Orlando. It was a fun day that included a trip to Downtown Disney and eating dinner at Rain Forest Cafe. My kids love to visit the Lego store. They are making a lot of changes to Downtown Disney – but there are still so many things to do!


We just love spending time in the pool. Growing up we always had a pool. We would swim just about all year round. So it’s is really nice that my kids can enjoy a little time in the pool.

What have you been up to this summer?

Stop Hair Loss With Nisim Hair Loss Shampoo

Disclosure – I received a bottle of Nisim Hair Loss Shampoo. All opinions are my own.



For as long as I can remember, I am always losing my hair. When I would take a shower, I would always notice the amount of hair that would fall out. I am getting older so I have been worrying more about thinning hair. So when Nisim offered to send me a bottle of Nisim Hair Loss Shampoo, I was excited to try it! 

Nisim NewHair Biofactors hair loss shampoo stops excessive hair loss within one week of daily use. This unique deep cleansing shampoo has been specially formulated for normal to dry hair and to maximize a clean and nutrient rich environment for natural hair growth. The shampoo effectively removes build up of sweat, oils, and dirt etc as well as neutralizing the DHT(dihydrotestosterone) on the surface of the scalp. DHT is the most common cause of hair loss.

The Verdict - I loved it! About about a week of using it I noticed a lot less hair in my fingers when shampooing my hair with Nisim Hair Loss Shampo. I really just thought that hair loss was something that I would just have to live with. I never realized that it was something that I could fix so easily. I have been using Nisim Hair Loss Shampo when I shower and I really notice a difference. 

My hair is smooth and always smells great after my showers.  If you suffer from hair loss, purchase a bottle of this Nisim Shampoo. I think you will notice a difference after just a few days! The bottle should late you 4-6 weeks.

For the past 3 years Ebates has provided bloggers with $25 to buy a backpack and school supplies for a child in need.

I decided to help a child I know. I found the school supply list online and went shopping. There were a lot of great deals to be found. I knew that I wanted to donate a back pack this year so when I was buying school supplies for my kids, I took advantage of the great deals.

I found amazing deals at Staples.com. (I even shopped through Ebates and got 2% back – it all adds up!) Plus they were shipped to my house and no coupons to clip! Check out all these discounts!
