21 Days of Positivity with Pamprin

This post has been sponsored by the PRIMP Network. All opinions are my own. We all have our negative moments. Those times where nothing seems to go right and life just keeps beating you while you are down. I know I’ve had my fair share of them. When I was younger, I used to focus on those negatives and how ‘life isn’t fair’ and it was very damaging to my mind, body and soul. Once I had my son, I tried changing that. No matter how bad things were, I wanted to have a smile on my face for my son’s sake and really mean it. I wanted him to also see there was always a bright side to things. Was this easy to do? Not always. There were times I locked myself in the bathroom for a good cry so my son wouldn’t see it, but when I was done…

Enjoying The Last Days Of Summer With La Roche-Posay

This post was sponsored by La Roche-Posay as part of an Influence Central campaign and all opinions expressed in my post are my own. Summer is coming to an end and we’re trying to make the most of our weekends while the weather still allows us to! Today we hit 104 here in California, so I packed up my son and we headed to my parents to enjoy some time on the delta in their houseboat. I grew up on the water, so I know how important protection from the sun is. I’ve been pushing my son to be diligent about it as well. Children have delicate skin, so it’s important to find the perfect sun scare to protect them. I remember when I was younger, I went out on the water without sunscreen and I had an incredibly painful sunburn. My skin was deep red, I was covered…

Enjoy a Bowl of Lucky Charms

This post is sponsored by Acorn Influence. All thoughts are my own. As a child, I remember running out for breakfast and pouring a bowl of Lucky Charms… and then digging in the box to pick out extra marshmallows for my bowl. It was the BEST PART! I know my mom caught me a few times and chastised me, but honestly it still didn’t stop me from doing it again, and again… and again. Well now I’m the mom and when I pour my son his bowl of Lucky Charms I still pick out some marshmallows from his bowl before I hand it off to him. I can’t help it! I love the cereal as a whole, but it’s something about that delectable crunch of the little colorful marshmallows that draw me in every time! He says the blue moons are his favorite marshmallow too… but I’ll honestly take any of…

Letting Loose & Cozying up with Pure Leaf

Sponsored By Mirum Shopper The months are getting warmer and warmer and after a long day, sometimes you just need a nice cup of tea to relax. If you are in California like I am, then you  iced tea is definitely needed to cool off! I didn’t become much of a tea drinker until I was in my mid 20’s, before that I would only have tea when I had a cold or sore throat. It always helped! Now I drink tea on occasion when I need an afternoon pick me up or something to warm me. Now you can find a variety of loose and bagged teas from Pure Leaf at Ralphs! They come in a variety of both bagged and loose for either hot tea or iced tea. In our house, I’m more of a hot tea drinker, but my boyfriend is definitely a fan of iced tea, so…
