Ultra Swim Chlorine removal shampoo and conditioner


We are always in the water and especially in pools which have chlorine, I  am always worrying about my hair getting damaged. I know when i get out of the water my hair turns brittle like, and just nasty. 

The other day I wondered to myself if there was a shampoo out there made just for chlorine, because at least I make my kids rinse their hair but I am sure it is still leaving damage. When doing my search I came across Ultra Swim shampoo and conditioner.


How exciting, so i asked if I could try it out since again we are always in water. The company sent me a bottle of both shampoo and conditioner and I had the chance to try it out during our visit to the Holiday Inn Suites. 

I took a pic of my hair before a shower after using the pool and then a pic of it after using the Ultra Swim shampoo and conditioner. Right away, while in the shower I noticed that our hair was much softer and easier to work with. My normal shampoo and conditioner would work but it still would be harsh brushing out after and still have a stiff feel after until many brushing in.


I used the Ultra Swim shampoo and conditioner on us all. Right out of the shower I brushed our hair. It was easy to work with, no knots or tangles or feeling of brittle hair. The next morning I took the second pic because now my hair was dry. You can see it looks smooth and soft and that was exactly how it felt. 


I was really impressed and happy to have found a new product that I feel good about using after a pool day. You can purchase Ultra Swim products here and on Amazon

Timex Time Machines teaching kids how to tell time!


Let's face it nowadays kids and possibly some adults don't know how to tell time, I mean really why do you need to, you have your cells. But what if you left your cell at home, what if the only way to tell time was the old school way. Thanks to Timex Time Machines kids are coming back to reality and learning how to tell time!

Timex, a global leader in timekeeping for over 160 years, launches Timex Time Machines Mobile App developed with Scholastic the global children's publishing, education and media company. Made just for kids in grades 1–3, Timex's Time Machines mobile app give educators and parents the tools they need to make time teaching fun, easy, and hands-on. Timex Time Machines watches are durable, easy-to-read and come in an assortment of colorful, fun designs kids will adore.


Developed with Scholastic, the Timex Time Machines Mobile App empowers kids to have fun through learning by seamlessly blending digital free-play with a variety of interactive lessons tailored for kids ages 5 through 9.



Choose between Learning Mode and Game Mode to learn the basics of time telling:

Learning mode – learn to tell time with a tutorial that features general concepts such as clockwise, counter-clockwise, function of clock hands, telling time, A.M./P.M., and a simple game analog and digital matching game.

Game Mode LEVEL 1: Time Stopper - The clock is spinning and the player is given a time. The player must tap the clock at the specific point when its hands are at the indicated digital time in order to stop it.

Game Mode LEVEL 2: Counting Time - Players see a clock with a certain amount of time shaded in (for example, a quarter hour). They must tap minute buttons to equal the shaded amount without going over.

Game Mode LEVEL 3: Rocket Time - Time, in the form of clock faces, is falling from the top of the screen toward the player's Time Machine. The player must tap the clock that matches the written time shown at the bottom of their screen.


So how does it work? You download the app, play the games, and use the Timex Time Machines watch to help your child learn. I have bought so many of the kid watches before and they are never a true fit. With the Timex Time Machine watches they are made for kids as in a 3 year old can wear and it will not fall or twist on their wrist. They also are super easy to remove and replace the watch bands that my girls have been switching theirs up a lot. Another benefit to the band coming off is I can wash it super easy.

Culturelle Kids Products


During the Summer my kids eat a lot of junk, so they are not always getting the vitamins they need, and with the rain and bad weather they often catch things that make them feel bad for a few days. One way I have found to stay on top of it is to have my kids take Culturelle Kids Packets Daily Probiotic Formula which helps children's digestive tract to work better and supports a healthy immune system. All of which are important things to consider with the change of season and routine that come with the end of the school year. Each flavorless packet easily dissolves into water or any cold or room temperature drink to help support children’s health throughout the summer.


My older kids enjoy the Culturelle Kids Packets Daily Probiotic but the younger ones still hate the taste. So they get to enjoy the Culturelle Kids Chewables Daily Probiotic which has a berry taste to it and they don't know it is not candy. They really enjoy these products and all kids are getting something which fits them. Don't worry adults there is something for you as well, Culturelle has a wide selection of products to fit every ones needs. You can check out Culturelle products by visiting their website here.

Florida’s Natural Lemonades need I say more?


Florida's Natural is located just down the road from me on HWY 27 I pass it often to see my parents who live in Lake Wales. Florida's Natural has been producing some of the best tasting juices since 1933. It is kinda neat to live close to a company which supplies grocery stores, retail and more with such a great product.

Summer is now here and one thing that comes out and you see kids setting up is Lemonade. Florida's Natural has you covered. Unlike MANY lemonades out there Florida's Natural is well Natural it has a pleasant taste to it not a bitter or strange taste that is hard to describe. Once again Florida's Natural hits the shelves with its 4 flavors of lemonade.


No added anything Lemonade: this is great for your lemonade stand it taste just as if you made it yourself possibly better since Florida's Natural knows the right amount of sugar and lemons. It really is the only brand I buy when I am wanting some lemonade.


Lemonade with Pomegranate:  I am not a huge fan of pomegranate but hey you gotta try everything at least once and wow I was surprised how pleasant the taste of the lemon and pomegranate mixed together were. My kids really enjoyed it as well because it was not to sweet or tart.


Lemonade with Strawberry: This is my personal favorite! I love LOVE strawberries and it gives such a great taste to the lemons. I love making the Florida's Natural Lemonade with Strawberry into frozen ice pops for my kids, slushies, and even mixed drinks for adults. The possibilities are endless when it comes to this combo of flavoring. Granted you can do this with the others listed above but again for me this is by far my favorite!

Last is the Lemonade Ice Tea: I seriously hate lemon in my tea, I love sweet tea but hate lemon. I was more hesitant drinking this then I was trying the Lemonade with Pomegranate but I still had to at least try. I had been let down so many times before with a lemon/tea combo but I was like okay let's do this. So I tried it............not to sweet........not tart............not bitter.............wow really good. I ended up finishing the bottle on my own within 2 days. The lemon taste was lost in the sweeten tea taste with a hint of lemon but nothing crazy like others. I also liked that after I drank it that was that, normally after I would drink something like this I would find myself still looking for another drink, soda or water something because it just wouldn't quench the thirst but the Florida's Natural did.


Not only are Florida's Natural lemonades taste great, they do great, too! 100% of the profits from your purchase go directly to Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation. Together we are helping fund lifesaving research and improve the lives of children battling cancer. This legacy of "giving all" came from a simple lemonade stand started by an amazing little girl. Alex Scott believed that when life gives you lemons, you make lemonade. Having spent much of her young life fighting cancer, Alex was a determined, courageous, and confident kid with big dreams. The day after her fourth birthday, she decided she wanted to help kids like her by opening a lemonade stand and donating all of the money to her hospital. Word got around about Alex's stand…and her story. And families across the nation were inspired to make a difference, one glass of lemonade at a time.


Not only does Florida's Natural have these great lemonades they also have an amazing line of Orange, Grapefruit  and Apple Juice and even cocktails. You can locate Florida's Natural products at your local grocery store. If you happen to be in FL and wanna learn more about Florida's Natural you can come by their Visitor's Center located off HWY 27. Learn more about Florida's Natural by visiting their website here.

Jennie-O Tacos!

I love Jennie-O products and one of my favorites is the seasoned ground turkey. I love the Lean Taco Seasoned Ground Turkey from Jennie-O.

Lean Taco Seasoned Ground Turkey

We use turkey for cooking now because I have seen improvements for us all I noticed I am losing weight and feel better each day than if I had eaten a beef. We often used the Jennie-O turkey to make Tacos!




Tacos make a great meal that the family can get together and created their own taco. The seasoned ground turkey made the tacos so much more yummy than a typical taco. You could see the spices in the turkey that is how much flavor it already had packed into it which made it super easy to cook because not having to dig through spices it was all there!


Check out the season turkey from Jennie-O in your local grocery store! Also while you wait look for money saving coupons and recipes at Jennie-O website here. Like them on Facebook to keep up with new products!
