I am always looking for simple and healthy back to school lunch and snack options.  I send my 7 and 9 year old to school with lunch daily.  I sometimes find it hard to come up with different lunch and snack options.  We try and keep our snacking and lunches pretty healthy.  Musselman's offers a variety of tasty apple sauce options that are perfect for lunchboxes and snacks.





Musselman's apple sauce is available in their big cup.  This is a larger individual serving of apple sauce.  It is perfect for bigger kids that need a larger portion.  These can easily be placed in a lunchbox or used as an after school snack.  I love that these require no refrigeration too.  This is a great way to give your child fruit, but not have to worry about it spoiling throughout the day.  We also received a larger jar of Musselman's apple sauce.  Their unsweetened variety is excellent.  It is something that I really feel great about eating, and also giving to my kids!

Fall Beauty with Mary Kay

Disclosure - free sample provided.



I am so excited that Fall is here.  I am changing up my beauty routine, and my makeup colors.  Do you have favorite colors to wear during the Fall Season?  I am excited to share with you some great new looks for the Fall Season.  Mary Kay was in NY for fashion week.  I was recently given the opportunity to try out some of the hottest new colors they are offering for Fall.  






The smoky eye is big this Fall season.  Mary Kay offers a great eye color palette that will help you create the perfect smoky eye.  Their Saphire Noir pallete offers gray, a shimmery gray, a dark navy kind of blue, a shimmery navy blue, and a beautiful shimmery pink.  These colors can be used alone, or combined.  I personally love to use Mary Kay's eye primer first.  I have found that this really helps my shadow last throughout the entire day.  I then applied the gray from the Saphire Noir pallete to my lid.  I then dusted my lid with the shimmery gray shadow.  I finished the lid with a hint of the shimmery pink.  My new fall makeup look is not complete though without a great lip color.  The hottest new trend is a nude lip.  Mary Kay's Pink Rose semi-matte lipstick is a great nude shade.  The lipstick goes on easily, and feels great on.  This is my own rendition of the new smoky eye and nude lip that is really in this season.  How would you make this look your own?





What colors are you wearing this Fall season when it comes to your makeup?  You can learn more about all of the great looks you can create with Mary Kay Cosmetics by visiting their website.  You can also connect with them on Facebook and Twitter.

Fall Fashion Review - Native Kids Shoes

Disclosure - free sample provided.

Are you getting your Fall wardrobe ready?  I am ready to wear jeans, boots, and scarves.  My kids are ready too.  We live in Vegas, and by this time of year we are done with the heat.  We are ready for cooler weather.  There are so many great fashionable clothing items for children for the Fall season.  My kids love to wear boots.  They are stylish and look great, but they also keep their feet warm.  I want to introduce you to Native Shoes.  They offer a great selection of stylish and comfortable shoes for children and adults.








I was browsing the Native Shoes website, and I immediately fell in love with their shoes.  They offer so many great styles.  Their Fall styles are available from Zappos too!  My kids received a pair of Native's Jimmy boots.  These are super cute.  They come in so many great color options that allow your child to express themselves.  My son received a pair in black and my daughter loves her's in the Hollywood pink style.  These are not just a great stylish boot, but they are comfortable too. That is super important to me when I am buying shoes for my children.  I am very impressed with how lightweight the boots are.  This makes it easy for your child to be able to still run around and play.  The bottom sole of the boot is nice and flexible.  I like how it moves with your child's foot.  The upper is lightweight, but still durable.  It also holds in the warmth.  Native Shoes are what they call "Beast Free."  The shoes are made without animal materials.  They are washable, water resistant, odor resistant, and they absorb shock too!

Edna Valley Vineyard Chardonnay Review

Disclosure - free sample provided.



What's in my wine glass?

I just love when I find great wines that are reasonably priced.  I have been a fan of Edna Valley's wines for some time now.  They offer wines that are great quality, but they are very affordable.  Edna Valley Vineyard's is located in the coast of California.  They are located just 5 miles from the Pacific Ocean.  Have you tried any of Edna Valley Vineyard's wines?  What is your favorite?







I want to introduce you to Edna Valley's 2012 Central Coast Chardonnay.  This is a great crisp white wine.  It is made with Chardonnay grapes.  This is a perfect choice if you like a dry wine, but don't want something super dry.  The 2012 Chardonnay is dry, but it also has notes of fruitness to it.  The wine is easy to drink and pairs well with a variety of dishes.  I typically would pair a wine like this with a light meal - something like chicken or pork.  What would you pair it with?  This wine retails for about $15 a bottle.  

You can learn more about this excellent wine and all of the wines from Edna Valley Vineyard by visiting their website.
