StreetStyle Fashion With @BrooklynCloth #BKFAM

I am clothes and fashion obsessed!  
Because I love clothes so much, I've passed my love & passion for fashion along to my kids!
Because I have four boys...I love finding places that offer unique street style clothing.  Clothing that is not only hip, but also comfortable.  
Stores that offer clothing for them that isn't basic, but a little edgy and even UNISEX.

All products for this review/feature were sent free of charge by the company featured.  I was not offered any monetary compensation by posting my honest opinion about these products.
So when I learned about Brooklyn Cloth, I was not surprised that my boys were stoked about their clothing line.  
Not to mention, that we love NY too.  
This seemed like the perfect combo.
We received a package loaded with clothes & goodies for the boys...including cute stickers to put on their hydroflaks, notebooks, etc.  LOVE IT!

The boys had some fun modeling these cool drawstring camo pants for me.  
I mean, come on...you gotta admit these pics are pretty STINKIN' adorable.


My youngest, who has aspirations to be a CALVIN KLEIN model someday, also enjoyed having the camera pointed in his direction to show off some of their cute tees and comfortable drawstring shorts.

Funny thing, my oldest daughter is IN LOVE with their clothing line too.  Not only because she absolutely loves their name, but because she also loves this "STREET STYLE" LOOK.   In fact, she squeezed into her brother's matching pants to take a few pictures wearing the clothes too.  LOVE IT!
CLICK HERE to check out Brooklyn Cloth.  They are having a SPRING CLEANING sale right now, so now is the time to stock up on some cute things for your guys wardrobe for this spring/summer.

This Portable Aromatherapy Diffuser Will Change The Way You Use Essential Oils - @TheRoama

I'm just starting to learn about essential oils and all the amazing uses & benefits for them.  
It's not really something I've really known much about, but it's always something I've wanted to learn more about.

All products for this review/feature were sent free of charge by the company.  I was not offered any monetary compensation by posting my honest opinion about these products.
So when I heard about The Roama, I was curious.  
Not just because it's an Aromatherapy Diffuser, but because it's portable, which means it doesn't have to stay in one room...plugged in.  
This totally maximizes the way you can use your oils around your home, in the bedrooms and even in the car.
I unpacked all the contents that came with THE ROAMA...which included a USB charging cable, peppermint & eucalyptus oils and even an empty oil bottle to create (or add) your own oils.
I plugged it in and charged it up...
And then it made it's way around the house with me...because...it can!  
Once charged it has:
I love that this aromatherapy diffuser can follow me throughout my day.  It requires no water and no wires (when charged).  Especially if I'm feeling congested and needing a little extra Oil TLC.  
This is such a smart idea!  LOVE IT!

Bathtime Around Here Will Never Be the Same - Thanks @ZimpliKids #collab

It's all my fault!  
My kids like taking baths.  
It's just something we all have in common!  
It's something they have been accustomed to as little kids!

All products for this review/feature were sent free of charge by the company.  I was not offered any monetary compensation by posting my honest opinion about these products.

Because of that, a nightly bath is nothing new.  
But thanks to ZimpliKids GelliBaff and SlimeBaff, bathing in our house jumped to a whole new "FUN TIME" level!
I wasn't sure about any of these products...because, to be fair, they all sounded pretty messy and hard to clean up after.  
But honestly, I was completely thrilled with the entire experience using them.  Keep reading to find out why...  
You put about three inches of water in the bottom of the bathtub.  
You sprinkle the package #1 of Smelli GelliBaff in the bathtub, spreading out the contents, and mixing a little with your hand.  
Then wait for the magic to happen.  
THIS STUFF TURNS INTO THE MOST AMAZING Gelli experience your kids will ever have in the bath.  Plus it's tutti frutti scent makes it even more fun!
My boys were both enthralled and kept saying they didn't want to ever get out of the bathtub, because they were having so much fun playing in it.  
To get rid of the Gelli, you just sprinkle package #2 on top of it and wait.  
It's seriously like MAGIC.  
It turns, what was a bathtub full of Gelli into liquid again, and it goes right down the drain.  
NO MESS, NO FUSS!
The GLITTER SlimeBaff was a MUST for my daughter, who is 100% slime obsessed.  So we put the three inches of water in the bathtub, sprinkled the package into the bath and waited for the magic to happen again.  This time, instead of it turning into pieces of gelli goodness, it turned into the most amazing GLITTER SLIME BAFF bathtub experience ever.  
She was so happy.  Who wouldn't want to take a bath in slime, right?  
She slip slided around and played with all the slimy goo.  
The best part, when you're done playing, you add more water to the slime and it dilutes it and goes right down the drain.
Not going to lie...I was intrigued by it all and I had to give it a try too.  
SO MAMA even took a Glitter GelliBaff!  HA HA!  
Who says mom's can have some bath time fun too?
CLICK HERE to learn more about ZimpliKids products!  
Consider them for stocking stuffers, birthday presents or just because.  My kids say BATH TIME will never be the same around here...because they want a GelliBaff or SlimeBaff every single night!  
Wishful thinking...right?

@EATURXICA - A Crunchy, Healthy, Satisfying Snack I Can't Get Enough Of...

I am a night time snacker.  
My choices of snacking don't always tend to be healthy.  
In fact, I typically eat stuff that is really NOT good for me...when we're watching shows or movies at night time.

All products for this review/feature were sent free of charge.  I was not offered any monetary compensation by posting my honest review about these products.

Have you ever tried Jicama?  
It's a Mexican turnip, that is crunchy and sweet.  
The inside is white and looks like a pear.  
It tastes great chopped up in salads, mixed with some fruits and you can also use it as tortilla shells for tacos or just to snack on with dips.
Xica Jicama just sent me two different variations of their products to try.   
YUMMY!!
These ones I'll eat on the couch while we are enjoying our shows.
These ones we can try to create some fun tacos with...YUMMY!

Regardless how you like to eat Jicama...it's good for your bone health, a great option for diabetic people to snack on, improves digestion, can be cooked lots of different ways and is rich in Vitamin C.  I mean, there is way to many benefits to not enjoy some fresh JICAMA in your diet.

CLICK HERE to learn more about Xica Jicama, find some recipes and stock your fridge with some of this crunchy sweet goodness today!

Tune Into The @HallmarkChannel on Feb 25th To See The @Movieguide AWARDS

Friday night is an absolute blur!!

I was not paid to feature this post!  My husband's show was nominated for two Movieguide awards and we attended this event on behalf of Netflix.
We headed to the Hilton in Universal City to walk the RED CARPET (yes, just like a celebrity) for the MOVIEGUIDE AWARDS 2019.  
We enjoyed a fantastic meal, mingled with HOLLYWOOD stars, producers and directors, and watched as my husband and the crew from "MEDAL OF HONOR" a @Netflix original, received the "Faith and Freedom" award.
What an incredible honor!  The episode 4 - HERSHEY - was nominated in two categories (Faith & Freedom for TV and Epiphany Prize for TV) for this AWARD WINNING evening and brought home one of the two categories.  
Such an amazing honor!
MAKE SURE YOU set your DVR to record or tune into the Hallmark Channel on February 25th to see them accept this award on the 2019 MovieGuide Awards Show.

Protect Your Hands At The Salon With @ManiGlovz

Gel nails...are the incredible NO CHIPPING manicure that have swept onto the hands of so many women in our cities.  
Admit it, you've had gel nails done a time or two before, right?  
If so, you know the drill...as your hand does several passes (for a minute or two at a time) under a UV lamp to activate and set the gel.  I mean, this is seriously the reason these manicures last as long as they do.

All products for this review/feature were sent free of charge by the company.  I was not offered any monetary compensation by posting my honest opinion about this product.

But have you ever thought about the harmful UV rays that your hands are being exposed to, every time you visit the salon?  I've always heard a way to truly judge the age of a woman (because so many ladies now days are doing things to their faces and bodies to rewind time) is to look at their neck and their hands.  Those two places rarely lie about their age.  
They are a tell tale sign of true aging...and probably the UV exposure during the salon trips may be adding even more years to the range.
UNLESS...
You purchase a pair of ManiGlovz.   
To me, it's worth the investment over time for sure.  
Plus, they really are pretty reasonably priced (especially if you're an every two weeker nail person).   These "manicure" style gloves are super cute, have UPF 50+ protection built in and will protect those already fragile hands from even more wrinkles and exposure to harmful rays.  
ManiGlovz™ UV Protective Manicure and Sunblock gloves are made using Certified UPF 50+ UV Protective Compression Tricot (some with hydrating Aloe Vera Microcapsules). Comprised of a combination of polyester super microfibers and lycra, our max-dry performance fabric resists runs and provides phenomenal 4-way stretch, along with superb retention capabilities. Most ManiGlovz™ are 82% Polyester, 18% Lycra
It's so easy too!  
You simply put your pair of ManiGlovz on prior to your gel manicure.  
Heck, you can even wear them when you're driving to the salon (they are that cute).  
You wear them throughout the manicure.  
Take them off and pack them away in your purse, in the cute plastic carry case it comes with,  for two weeks later when you go back into get them re-done.  
Rest assured, you're hands are being protected and your nail technician isn't going to mind the cute design or the fact that your hands are "for the most part" covered while she works on your nails.  Why would she?
CLICK HERE to purchase some ManiGlovz for yourself!

Buy your daughter a pair.  
Heck, grab a pair for your Mother In Law too.  
Save you hands from that UV exposure, so your nails can still look INCREDIBLE all the time.
