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!
