BODYARMOR Sports Drink

When I was young(er), I played sports, worked out often and did something a lot of kids do not do today...I played outside! I tried a different brand of sports drink during my active years and never liked them. The taste reminded me of water with a squirt of lemon, salt and a tablespoon of sugar. I couldn't understand the fixation other athletes had with it. Back then, that sports drink was our only option, because we were told…

Smart Cookies Game Review #FoxMind

When we first started to play this game we were confused. The instructions were simple but I wasn't sure if I read it correctly because we just breezed through the first few puzzles. We were left wondering where the challenge was.



My children are 6 and 8, but they play Sudoku so they understand puzzles and logic. This is…

Showing Our Disney Side in 2015 - The Party! #DisneySide

Today was the big day. We finally had our Valentine's Day Party! As usual, things don't always go as planned, but it all worked out for the best. I planned on having a lot of games, prizes and music, but with the popcorn snack boxes and a house full of mostly boys, I had a feeling it wouldn't be all frills.…

5 Year Old Fined for Missing Friend's Birthday Party

As soon as I saw this news story on TV, I looked at my husband. If only...



OK, so it was the PARENTS of the 5 year old who were fined. But, could you believe this? I will be completely honest, I have thought about billing friends and family members who RSVP'd for my anniversary party and…

AllRecipes.com Zesty Slow Cooker Chicken Barbecue Recipe Attempt

This was exciting! I won the FAGOR Electric Multicooker a few months ago and couldn't wait to try it. I cook chicken breasts weekly and was tired of the normal curry, stew or BBQ, I wanted something American! The finished product turned out really good, but I did have to make a few tweaks to suit…

CAP Barbell Deluxe Bench with 100 Pound Weight Set Review

I've been looking for a sturdy weight bench for my husband but one in my budget that can still give us the features we need. I was seriously considering Gold's Gym XRS 20 Olympic Workout Bench (still considering it), but I would have to buy the bar and weight plates separate which I didn't want do. I came across the CAP set (currently under $100), which wouldn't take up as much space, which means I wouldn't have to get rid of…

Frost Vox Box

I love to receive a box of goodies, especially when the box of goodies actually has things in it, that I'm interested in using. Of course I'm grateful to be able to try something new...free...but still there's usually something or things in the box I've never heard of, cannot use and can't even give away. Not this time!



In the…

Cirque du Soleil Amaluna Experience

This was our first time at a Cirque du Soleil show, so I wasn't sure what to expect. When the opportunity to visit presented itself, I had to visit Google to find out if it was appropriate for kids. In their FAQ's section, it states: "Like most of Cirque du Soleil’s shows, Amaluna is meant to entertain the whole family. That said, moments of loud noises and darkness used during the show may frighten some children."



They've…

This Christmas

Have you ever come across a post on social media that changed the way you see your world? I did, just this week. I came across a post on my newsfeed that showed dirty, rough hands. It had a story attached, that always piques my interest, so I read it and it hit me hard. My husband and I do so much for our kids so they never go without,…

Busch Gardens - Christmas Town Experience

This would be our second visit to Busch Gardens this year, and I was excited because it's "Christmas Town" time! According to the weather forecast, there was only a 10% chance of rain, so I knew that meant 90% chance of rain. I was happy when we arrived because there was only a drizzle off and on...but that changed around mid day.



We arrived at…

InStyler Products Review, Deal and Giveaway!

I received three InStyler tools and I was excited to try them, because I saw them on TV and wondered if they actually worked for my hair type. My hair is naturally curly, but I don't have silky curls, I have coarse curls, so it's usually a battle trying to straighten my hair bone straight without using a hair relaxer. I won't say "never again", but after officially going natural in early 2013 I have…

Black Friday Shopping? No thanks!

Am I the only one disgusted by the whole idea of Black Friday beginning on Thanksgiving?



For the past few years, I've listened to stories of people waiting on long lines and camping out to save a hundred dollars on electronics. You see them on the news, right? Reporters interviewing someone standing alone days before a sale even…

FROGS - OMG I saw the cutest thing...

Remember a while ago when I posted a photo asking if anyone can identify the poop I saw on my windowsill? When I shared the pic on a few social media pages, I received all sorts of answers. Field mice poop, snake poop, lizard poop, mole poop, etc. We've checked and although we do have snakes, rabbits, deer, turtles and other animals that frequent our yards, frogs consider my home paradise. I don't know why I didn't think of…

Trying Fay's Pepper Steak Recipe - CookLikeAJamaican.com

I like to eat all types of food. What do you expect? I'm a half Trinidadian, 1/2 Puerto Rican woman who grew up with a Jamaican Stepfather who was a chef. Living in NY I had endless options when it came to food. NY is a Cultural melting pot. I frequented restaurants that served American food, loved Italian food and placed orders often at Chinese restaurants, lol. Man, my mouth is watering just thinking about…

Conversation with my son

Every weekend my kids want to have company come over. I'm always reminding them that I don't have a built in card in my brain that automatically stores the contact information for everyone I meet, and neither do they, so they need to physically exchange numbers with their friends. Do they? No, but every weekend we seem to have…

Bee Sili SUPER Silicone BBQ Grill Oven Gloves & Basting Review

I'm going to be honest. When I opened the package and took a good look at the Bee Sili Silicone Grill and Oven Gloves, I DID NOT think they would actually protect my hands when handling hot food. They're a pretty pair of gloves and includes a really nice...FREE basting brush, but I mean really?…

Mi Bella Reina 24K Gold Face and Neck Mask

After posting about the 25% off discount for Mi Bella Reina's 24K Gold Face and Neck Mask, I couldn't wait for my shipment to arrive. I saw the stock photos, but I still wasn't sure what to expect. I've tried face masks in the past, but they would be creams that dry and I would have to peel off the pieces, or it…

"Food tastes better in the Dining Room"

My son's birthday just passed. Since it's the beginning of the week and we'll be celebrating on the weekend, we knew we still had to do something ON his birthday so I baked a cake and cooked dinner. We always eat food at the same time, which is whatever time I finish cooking, but we eat in different rooms. My kids eat in the kitchen, I usually eat in my room while watching one of my favorite shows and my husband likes to eat in…
