Black or White DVD Release & Giveaway

May 5, 2015 By · 79 Comments

Black or White is the story of a grandfather (Academy Award® winner Kevin Costner) who is suddenly left to care for his beloved granddaughter. When her paternal grandmother (Academy Award® winner Octavia Spencer) seeks custody with the help of her brother (Anthony Mackie), the little girl is torn between two families who love her deeply. With the best intentions at heart, both families fight for what they feel is right and are soon forced to confront their true feelings about race, forgiveness, and understanding. Anchored by an all-star cast and based on real events, the movie is a look at two seemingly different worlds, in which nothing is as simple as black or white.

I haven’t seen this movie myself, but the kids and I can’t wait for it to hit the store shelves so we can watch it. I have always loved Kevin Costner in his movies and I think this tear-jerker will definitely be a keeper.

Hallmark’s Mother’s Day Card Collection Giveaway #PutYourHeartToPaper

May 2, 2015 By · 6 Comments


Hallmark always has the perfect card no matter what the reason. I love that they have something for everyone, they don’t just make cards for the perfect mother/father/sister/brother or that perfect relationship with all the mooshiness. Instead they have your sentimental, the humorous and everything in between. I couldn’t wait to see what they would come up with for this Mother’s Day and once again they have not let me down. I was sent 10 cards, 5 from the Shoebox and Signature Collections.

Huggies Snug & Dry Ultra Gives a Good Reason for Selfies

April 29, 2015 By · No Comments

Nicoli turned 2 years old this past Monday and I can’t help but think of how quickly time has past. One thing is for certain I am so very thankful of all the pictures I have taken of him throughout his tiny little life, all the moments caught on a picture so it’ll never be forgotten. Now it is time to start transitioning to potty training. Which means I’ll need to begin finding diapers for night and begin training him.


Nicoli is the last of my children (1/5), he’s the one everyone is always giving attention, maybe it is because they are all far apart in age. Who knows, one thing is for certain…he is loved. If I’m not the one to take photos you can guarantee that one of his two older siblings have something he did during the day on their camera phones. I have so many pictures of him running around in the park, being picked up into the air by a sibling, ate by a dinosaur during a family trip, and of course trying hats on in the store or he takes oh himself with brothers phone (selfies).

As a Parent How Would You Have Responded?

April 28, 2015 By · No Comments

Many have seen the video of the mom catching her son taking part in the #BaltimoreRiots by throwing rocks at people/police cars. When she realizes it is her own son hiding behind a ski masks she confronts him, takes it off, begins trying to hit some sense into him and tells him to get his butt home. I’ve seen people both applaud her and shame her for trying to get her son home. (Some say adding violence to the situation) Even the Baltimore police commissioner said he wished more parents would step in and be more like her. So watch the video and comment below.

The New Caress Forever Collection: Inside My Bath

April 17, 2015 By · 1 Comment

Disclosure:  I was given compensation and/or product to facilitate my review of this product. All thoughts and opinions are my own.


As a mother to five children I don’t get that many breaks so for me when I close the bathroom door, most of the time that is when I get my mini vacation. Now I love my children but just like every parent out there we do need a few minutes of quiet, a time to relax and just enjoy a few moments of peace and quiet in a hot bath as we take in the day. Am I right? I love body washes, and bubble baths so I jumped at the chance to try out Caress’ Forever Collection.

I love the fact that after my bath (I wish it could be a shower but with my thick hair and low water pressure it isn’t possible for me) the fragrance lasts up to 12 hours every time my skin is touched. This comes out thick and smooth, it looks really creamy as you can see in the photos below. Thanks to it being 12 hour protection if I run my hand over my arm you’ll smell it. For myself my favorite was the Adore Forever because (in my opinion) it was a softer scent, my daughter loves the Love Forever.
