PRESS SAMPLE / SELF PURCHASED / AFFILIATE LINKS

 

I love Christmas shopping, especially for my children.  When it comes to Christmas, my boys are so laid back and easy to shop for, that it makes surprising them each year that much easier.  I think children should have a wide range of gifts from clothes and toys to books and games and I’m always excited to write up my list of treats for my boys each year.  Shopping for kids can be a challenge, at any age… so I have compiled a list of presents that are reasonably priced for any child.  No matter the age, I’m sure you will find something in my list that your children may enjoy.  Let’s get started, shall we?

Trekz Titanium Mini Wireless Headphones ($129.95) – These headphones from AfterShokz are the ideal gift for my teenager.  Kevin Ka’eo is at the age where he works on projects for school on his iPad and Tablet and needs a quality headphones that can take the beating that teens dish out.  He also runs and jogs so I really want to ensure I have a product that will work for him and provide him with quality sound.

img_20161103_161537-01

The Trekz Titanium Mini Wireless Headphones are lightweight and comfortable.  The are stereo headphones which are the safest alternative to traditional sport headphones and earbuds.  With bone conduction technology, an open ear design and a suite of convenient features, the Trekz headphones deliver premium music play and crystal clear calling without any compromise.  This headphone is designed with athletes in mind and are sweatproof and secure – making them ideal for my son.  They will allow you to hear your surroundings – no matter where life takes you.

4id Power Spurz Light Up Heels ($19.95) – If you have little ones or even teenagers (heck, I even use them), Power Spurz are a great gift.  They keep you safe and visible through your outdoor training, walking, running or everything in between where you need to be lit up so you are visible.  The lightweight heel spur has two available settings – pulse and continuous light.  The piece slides conveniently on the back of your shoe and glows in a vibrant LED light.  Since my family and I often do night time walking around our block, or are out and about at the local festivals, these work perfect for the boys and they were a hit at Halloween.  They come in five different colors and I definitely suggest it.  They fit on my shoes as well as the boys so you have many options to utilize these.

LUX – The Principled Block Lux Blox ($29.99 +) – All three of my sons LOVE Legos or anything that will allow them to build creations to their heart’s desire.  I love encouraging their imagination and the fun without the screen, so Lux Blocks are definitely a fun toy for anyone to play with – kids and adults too.

holiday gift, holiday gift guide, trekz titanium, wireless headphones, bluetooth headphones, toys, gifts, stompeez, games, tablet, shoes, clothes, children's gifts, holiday gifts for kids,

Lux is Made in the USA and was created by artist/inventor Michael Acerra because he and his wife Healther wanted to give the world a block that could bring everything as nature does.  These construction blocks allow you build and make structures that curve, bend and move.  The come with a unique, patent-pending snap and lock hinge system that allows you to build a structure that flexes, twists and turns.

holiday gift, holiday gift guide, trekz titanium, wireless headphones, bluetooth headphones, toys, gifts, stompeez, games, tablet, shoes, clothes, children's gifts, holiday gifts for kids,

There are different sets available and like I mentioned before, it doesn’t matter your age or your child’s age – they will love Lux as much as we do.  While we still LOVE Legos in our house, Lux has easily become a building block we enjoy and I have it on my list to purchase several sets for my nieces and nephews.

holiday gift, holiday gift guide, trekz titanium, wireless headphones, bluetooth headphones, toys, gifts, stompeez, games, tablet, shoes, clothes, children's gifts, holiday gifts for kids,

Magic Sketch Art Tablet For Kids ($29.95) – I love As Seen on TV finds and the Magic Sketch is definitely one of them.  This fun and new way for k8ids to draw, play and learn is flexible with an LCD screen that is transparent.  The Magic Sketch allows kids to trace with the provided stencils or from their own images and creating all kinds of amazing art is fun for all ages.  Unlike most tablets, the Magic Sketch is super kid proof.  Kids can drop it, toss it, even step on it and it won’t break.  It’s completely water resistant, so if they have a spill, it will wipe off and they can keep going.  It’s got advanced internal electronics so you can clear the screen with just a push of a button.

Each Magic Sketch retails for $29.95 and includes:

  • Magic Sketch
  • Protector Guard
  • 1 Roller
  • 3 Stamps
  • 20 Learning Stencils
  • 20 Games Stencils
  • 20 Art Stencils

I especially love this as a gift because it’s perfect for travel, mess free and I don’t have to worry about replacing an expensive device if it breaks or gets lost or stolen.  It’s an ideal gift for all ages and I can’t wait to doodle on it myself.

holiday gift, holiday gift guide, trekz titanium, wireless headphones, bluetooth headphones, toys, gifts, stompeez, games, tablet, shoes, clothes, children's gifts, holiday gifts for kids,

Books & E Readers Make Great Gifts ($10 +) – My sons all love to read, so a great book (or two or three) or an E Reader like the Amazon Fire Tablet make great gifts.  These items make fabulous stocking stuffers or fun gifts for unwrapping.  Each year, I select at least two books for each of my boys and wrap them up.  This year – I’ll be purchasing an Amazon Fire Tablet for the three of them to download some of their favorite Kindle books (that way there is more room for my books on mine… lol) and with Amazon Prime and Amazon Underground – many books are free to read and download.  A basic Amazon Fire Tablet will make a great gift because it provides a plethora of apps and internet capability at reasonable costs.  You can easily get a Tablet for $50 now a days and it’s worth it.

A few books that the boys have been loving lately – The Adventures of Camp Nana Papa and The Spinfords are great classics that I think any child would like.  My eldest is currently reading The Kingdom Oceana (not currently pictured) and highly suggests that one.

holiday gift, holiday gift guide, trekz titanium, wireless headphones, bluetooth headphones, toys, gifts, stompeez, games, tablet, shoes, clothes, children's gifts, holiday gifts for kids,

Stompeez Slippers ($19.99) – Slippers with Personality.  These slippers are absolutely adorable and perfect for my twins.  They are fun, soft and comfy.  Walk, stomp or jump and Stompeez will pop to life.

holiday gift, holiday gift guide, trekz titanium, wireless headphones, bluetooth headphones, toys, gifts, stompeez, games, tablet, shoes, clothes, children's gifts, holiday gifts for kids,

I thought these would be the perfect gift for Luke & Isaiah because they love soft and cuddly things.  They come in different sizes and a variety of different designs – 9 total.  Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Batman, Nemo, Dori, Shopkins, Happy Puppy, TRex Dinosaur and so much more.

buddy balls, buddy, teddy bear, ball, kids toy, toys, toy review, children, kids, review, stuffed animal,

Buddy Balls ($19.99) – Zip it, Flip it, Love it!  The boys and I have talked about Buddy Balls here on the blog before and it was a rave for a product.  We love Buddy Balls and definitely thought it would make a great Holiday Gift to include in our gift guide.  Buddy Balls are soft, cuddly and so sweet.  They are little bears that you can zip up and flip into a ball to play with.  The boys love them and I love them so much, I’ve purchased several of these as gifts for the holiday.

You can read about Buddy Balls and our review on these sweeties here.

I realize that most of the gifts I listed in this post are really for boys, but hey – I grew up a tomboy and I loved to play with all the boy things when I was younger, so I guess many of these things really gravitate in my mind as fun gifts.  The fact of the matter is – they are all unisex and the gifts like Stompeez and Buddy Balls are sweet presents for little girls as well as any of the items I’ve chosen here.  Each of these were selected because we have tested them ourselves and the boys and I really went through and found the ones that we would love to get or enjoy.  At the end of the day, gift giving is about love and the thought is always what counts in our house.

I do have something fun for all of you.  The boys and I are working in collaboration with AfterShokz and giving away a Trekz Titanium Mini for someone this holiday season.  Check out the Giveaway Widget below to enter.

In our household, Valentine’s Day is every day so it’s not a holiday or date we necessarily put a huge emphasis on each year.  To my husband and I, Valentine’s Day is a celebration of love and we embrace love and commitment each and every day.  Don’t get me wrong, I do enjoy the occasional flowers, box of chocolates or jewelry but for us, Valentine’s Day is really about spending time with one another.  You see – with our busy schedules and odd shifts, parenthood and just our overall daily lives, spending time with one another is what makes for a great Valentine’s Day.

Time With The Ones You Love Is Always Well Spent

“Any time not spent on love is wasted.” – Torquato Tasso

My husband Kevin and I have been together for almost 19 years and in that time we have definitely celebrated this holiday in different ways.  Dinner by candle light, roses and floras galore and beautiful gems and jewels to stop traffic but one tradition we have definitely kept strong over the years is a new watch for one another.  Whether I’m buying a new one for him or he a new one for me, each year whether for the holidays, birthday or Valentine’s Day at least one of us gets a new watch for our collection.  Watches are so significant to each of us.  To us, a watch is more than just an accessory we wear on our wrists, it symbolizes time and our time together is so precious and important to us.

JORD Watch, Love, Time, watch, JORD, fashion, Valentine's Day, Giveaway

“I would rather have 30 minutes of something wonderful, than a lifetime of nothing special.” – Julia Roberts (Steel Magnolias)

This year I treated Kevin to a beautiful JORD Watch – a 94A Series in green sandalwood and maple.  This perfect wood watch makes a statement that is bold but not so much that it would make a person feel uncomfortable when wearing it.   It is the kind of watch for those who are making the most of every moment, every single minute and every day.  For a couple like us who collects watches of all kinds, this particular time piece is classic and stunning.

JORD Watch, Love, Time, watch, JORD, fashion, Valentine's Day, Giveaway

While each couple or person celebrates Valentine’s Day the way they choose, we opt to make sure that no matter the reason, we make sure that we spend time with one another, soaking in each and every moment and absolutely cherishing what we have.  As a couple we have learned that life’s moments can sneak up on you and in a heartbeat anything can change.  Make use of the time you have and spend it with the one(s) you love.  Make Valentine’s Day every day and make every moment you live something wonderful.

JORD Watch, Love, Time, watch, JORD, fashion, Valentine's Day, Giveaway

Each person celebrates love differently and whether it be to buy something special for someone you care about or to spend every waking moment with the one you love, the decision is up to you.  With busy schedules, three active boys and a life of activity – my husband and I have found that two minutes with one another is a cherished commodity and one we take advantage of as much as possible.  Time with one another is our favorite gift and the reason why we buy each other watches for presents.

JORD Watch, Love, Time, watch, JORD, fashion, Valentine's Day, Giveaway

I’ve partnered with JORD to giveaway a limited quantity of e-gift cards worth $25 each for Valentine’s Day!  If you’ve had your eye on one of these stylish wood watches, be sure to enter to redeem your gift code.  Your gift code will be good through the end of March 2016!

Let’s face it, in a world where we are always on the go – more often than not, we forget to take care of ourselves. So many of us have a plethora of responsibilities in life that we just don’t take the time, and things like taking a bath or brushing your hair (as well as so many other priorities in life) tend to take a back seat. Today, I’m going to talk to you about the importance of self care and how it is essential for your life, health and over all well-being.
5 Easy Steps to Feeling Your Best

1.) Nourish your body from the inside out. This may sound like an easy one – but do you really get the daily suggested amount of water each day? Are you getting the proper amount of fruits and vegetables in your diet? Are you even eating? I am terrible at this because I tend to truly disregard food on a whole when I’m busy… and sometimes my breakfast is skipped, so is lunch and then I find that I’m starving at dinner. Thankfully, I always carry a water bottle with me and I drink water consistently through the day to keep my body hydrated and nourished. But, don’t follow what I do – nutrition is an important part of feeling great – so not only do you need water, you need food too! Also, don’t forget – a good exercise routine or keeping active goes a long way in nourishing your body too.

2.) Moisturize your body and don’t forget the sunscreen. This may seem like something trivial, but I talk to many people that say they do not use moisturizer or sunscreen and it is essential in keeping your skin healthy. Knowing you are protecting yourself from the elements, aging and all kinds of skin issues is key and important. A great moisturizer for the body or the face works wonders in not only hydrating your skin, but also makes your skin feel silky smooth. When your skin looks great and feels great – you feel your best too! 5 Easy Steps to Feeling Your Best - Benefits to Self Care http://honeygirlsworld.com

3.) Feminine hygiene is not only about cleanliness, but also about keeping you feeling fresh.  Let’s be honest here for a moment… this is a topic not highly discussed or even talked about in secret.  But as busy women, there are times when we are just not in tip-top shape.  Between working out and exercise, running around for others and ourselves, intercourse and our monthly friend (the dreaded menstrual period), I’m sure that every woman experiences days when they could use a little help feeling fresh.  Monistat® now offers products beyond yeast infection treatment with their Complete Care™ line.  No matter how clean we keep ourselves, sometimes some may experience feminine odor and the Stay Fresh Gel from Monistat® Complete Care™ eliminates feminine odor to restore feminine freshness for 3 days with just one application.  It helps to maintain vaginal pH and is fragrance-free and paraben-free.  Stay Fresh Gel from Monistat® Complete Care™ is a great solution for those times when we are just not feeling clean or fresh.  Like I said before – it is the “hush hush” kind of topic, but since we all know I like to keep it real – let me just say this: If we are not feeling fresh or clean whether on the outside or down you-know-where, then we don’t feel our best! Try it for yourself – get a coupon to try Monistat® products here.

4.) Pamper yourself! It’s okay to take that 30-minute bath with bubbles and a glass of vino. It’s also okay to spend those 30 minutes to get yourself a manicure or a DIY at-home mani and pedi. Pampering yourself isn’t all about beauty either so if you are not into the nails or makeup – pamper yourself by picking up a new little black dress (LBD) or a new outfit for summer. Just a little time to treat yourself makes a huge difference in how you feel and it will not only help in feeling your best – but looking your best.

5.) When you look in the mirror – say to yourself that YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL. Let’s face it, in this day and age, social media, Internet, magazines and everything else can kind of put anyone in a slump. It’s difficult to feel your best when so many things around you either bring you down or make you feel like you are less than others. Know that you are beautiful – feel it, believe it – SAY IT OUT LOUD! It’s easy to forget how important we are in society and it’s the little things that make it all worthwhile. If no one has told you that you are beautiful today, I’m telling you… “You are!”

I could have used this post to take the time to tell you that feeling your best is only achieved with a healthy diet, lots of exercise, and all the other things that are stressed so highly and so often, but I’m not other people – I’m me and these are some of the things that keep me together. Taking great care of ourselves is a benefit all its own and while self-care may be a bit on the self-indulgent side, it really is not because without caring for ourselves, how are we then able to care for others when we don’t feel like we are on top of our game. When we feel great our lives are happy, if even in that moment, and we have a sense of calm and relaxation that everyone should experience. I hope this post helped to give you a little assistance in feeling your best and that you can utilize some of the things I outlined here.

True Lipids Eczema Kit

I have been using the True Lipids Eczema Kit by Cheryl Lee MD now for the last month and it has made my favorites a few times.  Having to deal with severe eczema, it has been quite a challenge for me to overcome and  traditional creams prescribed to me to use on my skin have not been ideal and I actually don’t like them.  With just a couple of weeks of using these products, I have noticed how quick they work, how beneficial for my skin they are and I am loving them.

I apologize if you came here to enter a giveaway – but it was cancelled expectantly.  Stay tuned for my review which will be live within the week.

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

I will be straight up and honest with you… as much as I love makeup, you can catch me with a bare face most of the time.  I love a clean and bare face.  I feel so good – it is my preferred every day look if I am not going to be putting makeup on.  Honestly, I wish that I had longer lashes – that would make me even happier.  A few days ago, a friend of mine shared a contest with me.  It was for Cailyn Cosmetics (a brand I may have mentioned a few times since I do use their products) and they were looking for your “Natural Makeup look”.  So I decided I would rock out what I would normally do if I was looking to be natural.  For me… that means mascara and lipstick or lip balm, though often it means nothing at all and just a bare face.

I would really appreciate it if you took the time to vote for me.  This type of contest is a little odd as you are allowed to vote once an hour, but I would be so happy to get just one vote and would truly appreciate it.  You can vote by clicking on this link: http://bit.ly/1mjfU3D.  The link will ask you to LIKE Cailyn Cosmetics Facebook Page and then you can vote.

When I think of natural makeup or bringing out the natural beauty in someone – I think about playing up your best features. For me – my best features are my lips and my eyes. My every day natural makeup consists of mascara and a nice lip balm or gloss. In this look I am using the following products: Eyes: Jordana 12 Hour Gel Liner Pencil in Black, Benefit’s They’re Real Mascara layered with Elizabeth Mott’s It’s So Big Mascara and Kiss False Lashes in 03 (Natural). On my lips I am using Cailyn’s Lip Balm in Apple Pink topped with NYX Butter Lipgloss in Angel Food Cake. For my brows I am using Cailyn’s Gelux Eyebrow in Cocoa.

Thank you so much!  I hope you like my interpretation of my natural look.  I contemplated entering a bare face, I may just have to do that later. 😉 Have a wonderful weekend!

Yay – it’s my Birthday!  I can’t believe I’m 34 years old already – geez, where did the time go?  I wanted to celebrate my birthday with all of you so I decided I would have a giveaway.  Check out all the details below along with a list of goodies that you can win.  I’ll be sure to post photos of the prizes later (so check back soon) but I go over all of the prizes in my video (embedded below).  Check out the rules and enter.  Thanks for being awesome!

Happy Birthday Giveaway!
