I’m ready for spring, and what a better way to feel the spring fever than wear bright colors that contrast this dismal, gray weather so perfectly. With SkinnyJeans new line of Team Colors, you can anticipate spring in style.
With 20 colors to choose from, I love the option of a bright pop of color that can add flair to your wardrobe in anticipation of warmer weather. SkinnyJeans not only holds their shape but also yours. The slimming shape and design noticeably changes your appearance and provides the confidence that a great pair of jeans should.
I wore the super-soft turquoise SkinnyJeans while running errands this past weekend and received numerous compliments regarding their fun color and style. It was exciting to wear a great fitting pair of denim without reaching the end of the day with major sag. These jeans continuously keep their shape and remain tight fitted even when worn multiple times.
After experiencing winter storm Nemo, I can attest to the joy comfort food can bring during a prolonged storm that keeps you hunkered down inside. Before we battened down the hatches, we stocked our kitchen with essentials and treats including Hungry Jack’s assorted Pantry Pack.
With a variety of fun pancake mix options and dinner sides, the Hungry Jack Pantry pack was a great addition to our pantry and provided a yummy way to ride out the storm. During the lengthy amount of time spent indoors and with snow still amassing our home 24 hours later, I opted to make the Hungry Jack Mashed potatoes and added in a bit of seasoning to taste. This was the perfect dinner side that eased our blizzard blues. The prep was minimal and best of all, the mashed potatoes were delicious, comforting, and warm.

This holiday season, Boys & Girls Clubs of America (BGCA) and Club Alumna, Lucille O'Neal (basketball superstar Shaquille O'Neal's Mom) have teamed up to remind us what it truly means to give. Over the years, the focus of the holidays has shifted from appreciating great family time together to rushing about getting the best deals on gifts. The true spirit of the holidays, the act of giving, often gets lost. Not giving the hottest toy or the most updated gadget, but the act of giving your time and talents to help those in need.
This year marks the 2nd Annual Give the Gift of a Great Future Holiday Campaign. BGCA has created the Give the Gift of a Great Future website with a focus on creative and easy activities to teach the value of giving back. No age proves too young for children to start learning the importance of giving back, especially during the holiday season.
Already a stressful experience, travel only becomes more difficult with children on board. Whether in a car or a plane, children crave your attention with nothing else to distract them. Though movies provide an easy fix, we want our child’s imagination at work, even during those long trips.

The TrayKit opens to reveal an extendable surface with raised sides, which means no toys hit the floor. The inside surface can easily be wiped clean making snacks and crafts a less messy option. With the TrayKit, long car rides fly by with a stand-alone play station no matter where you are. When your child finishes playing, simply pack everything up, zip up the bag to transform it into a small storable backpack.
