Family Wellness and World Cup 2014 with Healthy Essentials

This is part of the HEALTHY ESSENTIALS® 2014 program by Johnson & Johnson Consumer Companies, Inc. and The Motherhood, who sent me a box of products and compensated me for my time. Opinions, experiences and photos are all my own. Enjoy! 

It’s still January so I can still say HAPPY 2014! So much happening this year in terms of personal plans with the family, work related travel and a new business focus.

In terms of bigger events, it’s time for the World Cup which will be held in BRAZIL this summer. I’m only a fútobl fan every 4 years, especially when your home country has made it. I’ll be cheering on Chile (¡por supuesto!) UK and US. Sorry, I just can’t choose one over the other!

Portable Fun with Playskool Pop-Up Shape Sorter

It’s been a long summer. In fact, too long. My son’s last day of kindergarten was June 2nd! Take a few moments to ponder that one. Keeping a 6 year old and a very stubborn and “it’s my way or no way” 2 1/2 year old has not been an easy task. My kids and I played (and searched for pieces!) with the Pop Up Shape Sorter as part of a sponsored post for SocialStars and Playskool #PlayskoolCrew Toys in this house {Read More}

15 Most Influential Mom Fashion and Beauty Bloggers

This blog began in January 2012 after blogging as my son for two years at Mummy’s Busy World (no longer online.)
