#SparkleWithDasani Water Review

July 18, 2014 By · No Comments

Disclosure: This is a paid post, however with the summer heat I thought you’d like to learn a bit about a sparkling water that are hitting the store shelves near you. 

As many of you know we live in the Mojave Desert which means we are constantly needing to drink even more water than before, sometimes the kids hate drinking plain water. Did you know you can sparkle up the taste with Dasani now? That’s right now Dasani is sparkling things up and adding some flavor to their waters but not only that they also come in cans. My kids instantly wanted to try these drinks when they came in the mail because they thought they were new sodas. The apple and berry seemed to be more of a hit, they didn’t really care for the lemon or lime. How do you get your kids to drink water? While I know this isn’t completely water this does add a bit of fizz to their plain waters and is better than coke. Oh the best part is there are NO calories so if you are watching your figure this summer or just trying to count calories this is a great drink for you.


What makes you sparkle? Answer this and maybe even enter the #SparkleWithDasani giveaway for a chance to win. My kids are what makes me sparkle…that and getting all dressed up. Dressing up is not something I do on a daily/weekly basis so when I do I definitely sparkle. Do you? I’d love to hear what makes you sparkle.

Would you like to win this fantastic trip to a resort and spa? The Sparkling Getaway to Florida including airfare, hotel, and spa treatments for 4!  A dream come true for many right?  Okay now go find a picture of something that makes you Sparkle and tweet about it with the hashtag #SparkleWithDASANI with @dasaniwater (so they see it)  and you could be the winner of this trip. Oh if you win I’d love to hear about it. Okay I’m off to go tweet because I think I totally deserve a drip like this.

Fruity Summer Fun Recipes

With the school year coming to an end for some and already has been for others parents may be looking for a few quick and easy recipes to add fruit to their little ones menus. I know I was and having just discovered my kids didn’t really like water I had to come up with a few tricks of my own. Here’s one for you, sorry I only have a picture of Little A making strawberry/banana popsicles but I did not have one of the ice cubes.

Ingredients: water and blueberries. I boil the water to make the ice cubes crystal clear to look pretty and pour the water in the ice trays, once it starts to cool plop in a few blueberries and put them in the freezer until they are ready. Place a few ice cubes in a cup or bottle of water and watch how quickly the kids drink it down. I love the fact you can get a slight blueberry flavor as it melts and my son loves watching the blueberries dance around in his bottle. Got any water tips? Okay here’s a few other fun recipes I have tried and others I will be trying.

#MovingMoments with Nicoli

June 13, 2014 By · 17 Comments

This is a paid post for Huggies Little Movers Diapers, now your little man/lady can get around much quicker without worry. All opinions and pictures are mine, your opinions may differ.

Wow I can’t believe how fast a year has flown by and you really get to see that when you have kids graduate and get ready to move on with another school year. This past year my youngest son turned 1 and now he is extremely active, he is always on the go. This little mover will not stop, right now he’s currently crawling all over the place and he refuses to let anyone stop him. While his tiny friends have been walking around for a few months now he is slowly deciding it is time and will go from one piece of furniture to the other.  The other day I was coming out of the restroom when he had decided to stand upright using a dining room chair and then turn to try walking towards the couch, he only made it two steps, saw me and sat down. I really think he could do it but he does not want to be seen or caught in the act.  Course it could also be with a mommy and four older siblings he simply doesn’t care to walk, even when we are all clapping for him. When did your little one begin walking? What did you do to encourage it? For those that are going to ask he turned one at the end of April.


Here he was in the church with me, he’s figured out he can really move when he climbs up the wall and uses it as a support system. Check that little man out!



I think this little man will be moving fast in about a month and he won’t be having to hold on to anything. What do you think?

Little Movers are the perfect diaper for on-the go babies – their Double Grip Strips and soft Velcro make for a comfy fit, while their LeakLock™ system provides mom with peace of mind! For a select time, Huggies® is offering coupons to anyone who visits Huggies.com/moments and uploads a photo or video of their baby’s best moves!

It is amazing how quickly your child grows up, from the moment you first start feeling them kick inside you to putting on that very first diaper and watching as they pass those milestones. What is your baby doing lately?
