I’m a professional woman. I manage people, accounts, money - serious stuff. After work I’m a mom. I organize, prepare and manage little people. It is with confidence that I can say, I’m an adult. However, nothing shades this layer of seriousness and melts the adult in me as fast as LEGO does. Put a box of blocks in a front of me and my eyes open so wide that I can almost feel them sparkle, the experience is so intense. I love blocks. More specifically I love LEGO. Whether you’re one or one hundred there’s a set for you and I’ll be putting to the test the new Juniors line: Race Car Rally set and Spider Man: Spider-Car Pursuit.

Now it’s all about TV.

Step counters are a great way to see how much you’re moving in a day, and how active—or not–you really are.  I’m a fitness tracker fan; I own both the Jawbone Up and the Fitbit Flex, and love them, though my go-to is the Fitbit.  So I was pleased to be able to try out a different brand and style of tracker: the Ibitz Unity by GeoPalz.

Great Gifts For Babies and Kids.jpg

Choosing the right gift for a young one can be quite the challenge, especially if you’re someone like me who doesn’t have kids, but has a special nephew, niece, or friend’s kid in mind. Of course you have the option of walking into the kid’s aisle and picking a toy off the shelf, but where would you know where to start? Personally, I like to put a bit more thought into gift giving, especially when it comes to shopping for my special two year old nephew.

 

A rule of thumb that I stand by is: choose high quality products that will make both the child and parent happy. Boské Kids is an all-natural clothing company that offers just that. With a wide selection of playful, stylish, and unique clothing, you can surely count on them to fulfill your shopping needs.

I LOVE baby food! Ok, I probably shouldn't admit to that, but some of that stuff is just SO good! Of course, the kinds of baby food that I like (custard, tutti-frutti, and anything else that's sweet and yummy) are probably not the ones you want to start your baby on when first introducing the little one to solid foods. In fact, many parents today prefer to purée their own food for baby to ensure a healthy diet with none of those nasty preservatives and other extras that you might find in store bought products. For such people, choosing the right blender is paramount! If this is you, read on for a brief overview of four such devices to help you make the best possible choice of blenders for making your own homemade baby food.
