Overcoming Insomnia: 4 Tips For A Restful Nights Sleep

I participated in an Ambassador program on behalf of Influence Central for Pernix Therapeutics. I received a promotional item to thank me for my participation.

As I sit at my desk to type this post, I can't stop yawning and my eyelids are extremely heavy.  Why?  Because last night was yet another restless night of sleep.  It's really becoming a problem and interfering with my day to day activities.  Last month I talked about the dangers of insomnia and the vast amount of individuals that are plagued with sleeplessness.  It is a huge problem in our country with nearly 4 million people suffering from it and the side effects can be detrimental to our health.  This information was a bit frightening and definitely an eye opener.  Luckily, there are steps we can take to help achieve a better nights sleep!

Tooth Fairy Alert App & Tooth Fairy Prize Pack Giveaway: Celebrate National Tooth Fairy Day

Disclosure: I was compensation to write this review.  However, you better believe all opinions are 100% my own.  Peace!

Are you going to celebrate National Tooth Fairy Day this Saturday, August 22nd?

"Mom, I have a loose tooth!" is a phrase I hear often in my home.  This phrase is usually followed up with a nod to my husband to NOT forget Tooth Fairy duty.  You would think at this stage in the parenting game, we would be pro's at this Tooth Fairy thing.  However, we suck.  Seriously, do you know how many times we have forgotten to leave something under the kids pillow?  Way too many to count.

French Toast Official School Wear: Review and Giveaway

Disclosure: I was given free items for review purposes.  However, you better believe all opinions on items are 100% my own.  Peace!

It is that time of year again, shopping for back to school items.  My kids attend a Catholic school, so when it comes to shopping for school clothes, I am definitely limited.  Sure, some of the bigger departments stores have a section on uniform pants and shirts but these sections are very limited.  Like seriously limited, there might be one rack of uniforms in the entire kids section in those stores.

Therefore, I turn to the internet to buy uniform clothes.  This too can be a problem.  I have been burned in the past with buying uniform clothes online.  They will look all cute and durable online but when the clothes come in the mail, they are cheap and made with terrible quality.  Thank goodness for French Toast Official School Wear!

D23 Expo 2015: Disney, Marvel Studios & LucasFilm Presents Their Live Action Film Slates


As a blogger, especially as a workaholic blogger, you'll regularly see me glued to my phone and/or computer monitor.  This past weekend was especially true, you couldn't pull me AWAY from such devices.  Why?  Only because it was the weekend of ALL weekends for Disney fans such as myself, it was the D23 Expo!  At the D23 Expo in Anaheim, CA, Disney, Marvel Studios and Lucasfilm presented their live action film slates which revealed exclusive news and details about the upcoming live action films.  GASP!  So many greats in one place!  Kevin Feige, President of Marvel Studios was there to greet the crowd (Remember that time I met him?),  Sean Bailey, President of Walt Disney Studios Motion Picture Production and even Harrison Ford made an appearance!  I think it was at that point where I shed some a few of happiness, he was there for the new Star Wars film and like many, I love me some Star Wars.  Speaking of, have you seen the new Star Wars Land that is coming to Disney?  I. Am. Dying.  Okay, okay, back to the films.

The highly anticipated biennial event was hosted by Walt Disney Studios Chairman, Alan Horn.

“It’s quite something to be able to have Disney, Marvel and Lucasfilm all on the same stage, and it’s tremendously gratifying to unveil our upcoming projects to our most dedicated fans first,” said Alan Horn, Chairman, The Walt Disney Studios. “We always have an incredible time at the D23 EXPO.”

The reviewer has been compensated in the form of a Best Buy Gift Card and/or received the product/service at a reduced price or for free.

This time of year I always feel like Santa Claus, going over my list and checking it twice.  What list you may ask?  The endless list of "Back to School" supplies!  You know the drill, 1500 pencils (maybe not that many), multiple boxes of markers and crayons, loose leaf paper and a flash drive.  Wait, what?  Did I just see a flash drive on the kids school supply list?  No longer the school supply list of yesteryear, this year the list includes some technology!  Well, we all know what that calls for; a visit to Best Buy to stock up on SanDisk!
