My daughter is a big MOGO Charm fan. I started her collection a little over a year ago when I gave her a few bracelets and some charm tins for Christmas. I looked at other brands of charm bracelets, but I felt like MOGO had so many fun options, their products are affordable and the quality is great. The magnetic charms snap securely into place and your tween can mix and match different charms to create her own style. If your daughter rides horses, dances ballet or just loves fun flowers or peace signs, there are so many charms to choose from! There are also monogrammed charms and pretty bling charms in many colors.

california wine club

Do you have someone hard to buy for on your holiday gift list that loves wine?  Then you might want to consider the California Wine Club.

I recently received two bottles of wine from the club and enjoyed them both. It is fun to receive new wines to try and I can see how this would make a perfect and unique gift for any wine lover.

About the California Wine Club

The CWC owners personally travel the California wine country in search of the highest quality limited edition wines available.  With four great wine-of-the-month clubs to choose from, the  California Wine Club has different wine selection  for all tastes and budgets.

You can choose from 4 different clubs:


Premier Club - Their most popular club, each wine club shipment includes two bottles of award-winning wine and their beautifully detailed 12-page, full color publication, “Uncorked” which offers an up-close and personal look at the family behind the wines plus tasting notes, recipes, wine luminary interviews, games and so much more!

Signature Series - For collectors and connoisseurs! Each wine club shipment includes two to four bottles of exquisite, highly rated wine and detailed tasting notes with winemaker comments.

International Selections - From small “mom & pop” wineries around the world. Each wine club shipment includes two bottles of outstanding wine hand-selected from the world’s finest boutique wineries! Included with each shipment is their engaging full color newsletter highlighting the families behind the wines, the country of origin, recipes, travel tips, fun historical facts and much more!

Aged Cabernet Series - Napa’s most prestigious Cabernets. Each wine club shipment includes two bottles of Cabernet Sauvignon aged 8 to 12 years, detailed tasting notes and 3-Day Air delivery.

Be sure to check back as next month because  California Wine Club will be offering a $50 credit to one of my readers so you can enjoy your very own wine delivered right to your door!

Fit Moms For Life Review & Giveaway

 

fit moms for life

I recently received a copy of Fit Moms For Life: How To Have Endless Energy To Outplay Your Kids.  I glanced at it and then went about my everyday business or running this website and taking care of my kids.

Once I finally looked at it I realized that I fit perfectly fit the demographic of this book.  Instead of making myself and my health a priority, I let many other things take precedence.  I plan to make some changes with my fitness and diet and  reading this book has helped me.

I love Dustin Maher’s fitness philosophy and how he set up the book.

 

Moms feel overworked and under appreciated. Fit Moms For Life acknowledges the challenges and struggles moms face in getting in shape, but provides a road map that is very doable because of the short workouts and eating plan that is designed for moms on the go. Each chapter contains 3-4 stories of moms who have already conquered their weight loss battles and share their wisdom and advice to the moms reading Fit Moms For Life. Their stunning before and after pictures are a reminder of what is possible. The workout plan is anti-cardio based. They believe that long distance cardio goes against the goals of weight loss, therefore they don’t prescribe it at all.

 

The program is built around five pillars of health: mindset, nutriton,strength training, burst training and environment. Many of the facts and tips he suggests I already knew but it was a great refresher. The book is laid out in a clear and concise way that helps you make your own plan to be fit for life.

You can learn more about the program and book at the website http://fitmomsforlife.com/.

Through Sublime Media, I am giving away one copy of the book to a lucky reader.  Be sure to enter below.

Progresso Sauce Helps Make Dinner Fast & Tasty Plus Giveaway

Progresso has launched a new pasta and sauce product in Michigan that you can only get at Meijer. These are new slow-simmered, restaurant-inspired sauces and artisanal pastas. They include premium ingredients, complex flavors, and no preservatives and are available now in Meijer’s freezer section.

They come in three different flavors: Marsala Sauce,  Red Pepper Sauce and White Wine Sauce. Each box comes with four packages inside so you are ready for four different meals.  You don’t even have to unfreeze them before using them. Perfect for those hectic days.

I think these would be perfect to help with meal planning.  In my grocery savings workshops, I have a section on 15 minute meals.  These sauces can hep you get dinner on the table in less than 15 minutes with lots of flavor. (I will be giving away some free product coupons at the August classes too!)

I tried the white wine sauce this week and loved it.  I made a quick meal of chicken, broccoli and rice.  I cooked the chicken in the skillet with a bit of olive oil.  Just before I was ready to take it out I added the Progesso white wine sauce.  You are supposed to cook the sauce in a pan but I was lazy and just added it directly to the skillet.  I had taken it out of the freezer about 10 minutes prior so it was a bit thawed.  It worked out great and gave the chicken tons of great flavor. Plus I only had to clean one pan.

I also liked that you can add the sauce last in case you have picky eaters at home like me who only like their chicken plain with ranch.

The pack of sauces cost $4.99 but you can grab a $1 off Progesso sauce coupon here. This brings the price down to $3.99 or under $1 for each package of sauce that comes in the box.

The nice people at Progresso want to give 10 of you a chance to try the sauce for free.  Each winner will get a coupon for 1 free sauce box.  This coupon is ONLY good at Meijer so please do not enter if you will be unable to get to Meijer.

Disclosure: Progresso provided me with a free product coupon for my use and is providing the coupons to the winners and attendees of the Grocery Savings Workshops.

 

Discovery Girls Cover Creator App & Magazine Review & Giveaway

discovery girls cover creator app

 

If you are like me, you may remember the days when to get yourself on the cover of the magazine you had to actually be famous or vist an amusement park with a magazine photo booth. Now girls can make their own magazine covers on an iPad, IPhone or ITouch with  Discovery Girls Cover Creator App!

Girls can create a cover with any photo from their album or take a picture with the camera. There are templates or create they can create their own unique design! They are able to place designed titles, cover lines, and embellishments…or create and add their own text and drawings! The possibilities are endless.

Both my daughters loved playing with it and making up cover after cover. One of my oldest daughter’s favorites is pictured above which is Girls Rule magazine. Gotta love that! My youngest daughter’s covers all had pictures of Littest Pet Shop Toys and the articles all had to do with toys and animals.  I love that they could be creative while using technology.

 

Somehow my babies grew up and became teens. I love that Discovery Girls articles and features are written by girls, for girls. This means the content touches on topics that really matter to tweens.

The  goal of the magazine is to help girls grow and develop, forming a positive sense of self through solutions that build confidence, resilience and independence.

  • Created by girls, for girls ages 8-12
  • Features real girls, dealing with real-life situations
  • Provides a community where girls can interact, share ideas, and realize they’re not alone
  • Includes fun, age-appropriate articles, quizzes and tools to help girls thrive
  • Empowers girls to celebrate who they are and strive to realize their potential

 

My 10 year old loves reading this magazine. I love that the pictures are of real girls and they are dressed in nice age appropriate clothing. There was a pull out of hairstyles in one issue that my daughter still looks over and gets ideas on how to wear her hair.

Discovery Girls is giving away one app and one annual subscription to a lucky reader and it could be you! Just enter below and good luck!
