Giving Back with School Supplies at Target plus a Target $300 Giftcard Giveaway

I was provided a gift card to shop for back to school supplies, all opinions are my own.

I am a weekly Target shopper, I find myself driving towards that red bullseye like a moth to a flame so of course I picked up a few more Back to School supplies for my kid’s during my latest shopping trip. My kids not only need traditional school supplies but they also need things like tissues, paper towels and disinfecting wipes, all of which I can find at Target.

This year Target has two awesome opportunities for stocking up on school supplies while giving back to those in need. The first involves Target Up&Up school supplies. For every select up&up school supply purchased at Target stores from July 13 through August 2, Target will donate one school supply item to a student in need, potentially impacting nearly two million kids this back-to-school season by donating up to $25 million in school supplies. All of the products will be donated to the Kids in Need Foundation, who will distribute the products to schools across the country before the new school year.

Another great opportunity involves the fun and colorful brand Yoobi. The Yoobi collection is available in Target stores and on Target.com and features a colorful range of products, including folders, notebooks, pens, and rulers, all for less than $10. Yoobi’s “One for You, One for Me” mission means that for every Yoobi product purchased at Target, Yoobi contributes a product to a Yoobi Classroom Pack that will be distributed to K-3 classrooms in the U.S. through the Kids In Need Foundation. I stocked up on some fun Yoobi products for at home as well as some up&up products for crafting and homework.

Fun Summer Looks with my Mialisia VersaStyle Jewelry #Giveaway

The following is a sponsored campaign through MomDot and Mialisia, all opinions are my own.
mialisia no vest

 

Have you ever heard of Mialisia jewelry before? Even if you haven’t you have probably seen it and just didn’t realize what it was. Mialisia makes VersaStyle jewelry and that means jewelry with a patent pending hook system that allows you to hook the pieces together creating mixed pieces and even belts. The versatility of Mialisia jewelry is amazing and the pieces are so full of personality that you are sure to find some you love.

mialisia ring

 

 

I am really loving mixed metals right now which is why I was drawn to the Times Square Necklace and the Fifth Avenue Necklace. Even though both are mixed metals that coordinate I never thought of layering them together until they arrived, my plan was to layer them each separately with the Long Island antique gold chain from Mialisia. Each piece is gorgeous on it’s own full of incredible detail that really makes a statement but when you add them together, wow! And then I saw the Tifton ring it is gorgeous and goes with so many pieces, I knew I needed to have it too.

 

mialisia hooks

 

The hooks make it super easy to layer these necklaces without having tons of things to get tangled, you simply hook them together and everything stays in its right place. These hooks also make easy on and off plus if you have arthritis or any other issues with clasps you don’t have to worry about your jewelry giving you problems. Here are a few outfits that I came up with to style these great Mialisia jewelry pieces.

 

mialisia necklaces with balinese shirt

 

This is a perfect outfit for a get together with girlfriends or a casual date night out. I love the Fifth Avenue and Long Island necklaces layered together and even though you can’t see it I am wearing the ring too.

 

layered mialisia necklaces with vest

 

This outfit is perfect for pretty much anything and I love that it gives the jewelry a bit of an edgier look to it even though the jewelry itself is not all that edgy. I think that has been my biggest surprise with Mialisia Jewelry, it truly is very versatile and I am excited to try some other new looks with these 4 great pieces. So what do you think of the pieces I chose and how I styled them?

ASUS MeMO Tablet Giveaway ends 7/11

ASUS MeMO tablet

I love tablets, they are the perfect portable way to do all the things I want to do while on the go. Over the years I have tried out every operating system in a tablet and while they all have great things about them I found my true love in a tablet… the Asus MeMO Pad ME181. The Asus MeMO pad uses the android operating system and is a Google loving device. There are so many things about this device that make me giddy like a little kid, I seriously love playing with this tablet.

 

asus memo tablet 8

 

First of all I was BLOWN AWAY by the screen resolution and the quality of pictures it takes. I took a picture of my daughter in a dark room and posted it to Instagram, after comparing it to the photos I took with my phone I was amazed. The Asus MeMO Tablet offers a 5 mega-pixel rear camera and 2 mega pixel forward camera perfect for video chatting. The tablet even comes with great photo editing options so every picture will look exactly how you want. Then of course I had to turn on Netflix and the picture quality is flawless ( 1280 x 800 HD screen) as is the sound (dual speakers). The ASUS tablet also features IPS or in-plane-switching technology that delivers 178 degree viewing angles giving you accurate color from all angles.

 

android apps on Asus tablet

 

The Asus MeMO Tablet has all the apps I need for everything I love to do and more so don’t be fooled by the Android system into thinking ti will limit you. I have all of my social media accounts pinned onto the main screen plus Pinterest of course and then I also have a Kindle app so I can read on my tablet too! The speed of this Intel Quad Core powered tablet makes this impatient mom super happy, everything in the blink of an eye!

 

asus memo tablet 8 whats next

 

I am busy, really busy, managing 5 kids and my blog so having a personal assistant would be a  dream come true. My Asus MeMO Pad has a great feature called What’s Next which brings my calendar to life acting like a virtual assistant. This tablet is also very intuitive and when I turn it on I instantly see my calendar, the weather and suggested local events or other things based on what I am doing and have been searching for on the internet, I love that! Oh and it has an anti-fingerprint coating so if my kids grab it when I am not looking they can’t ruin it with smudgy fingerprints!

 

asus memo 8 tablet view

 

The size of this tablet is perfect, it is slim and not too big but not too small, perfect for tossing in my purse as I run out the door. And because I need lots of storage my Asus Memo Tablet comes with 16 GB of storage plus it has a micro sd reader where I can add up to 64 GB of micro sd storage. So really what more could a girl ask for. How about a realistic price… let’s say $199!

Simplifying My Summer Plus Exfoliating Oatmeal Mask #MyDawnSummer

Campaign sponsored by Double Duty Divas.
dawn hand renewal

 

It’s summer!!!!!!! – I will forever hear Olaf in my head when someone say it’s summer!

This year I vowed to have a simple summer, a real summer, you know the kind you actually look forward to! I vowed to simplify and relax and gasp let my kids be bored. I am a multi-tasking mom, a double duty diva and I can and will do it all person and that often leaves me exhausted. As I prepared for my older 2 girls to rejoin the younger 3 every day at home I knew I needed to reclaim my sanity, adjusting to 5 has been taking longer than expected and I needed a semblance of balance back to my life.

So I said no to summer dance and I said no to soccer camp. I said no to art camp and every other camp that I saw except VBS. I said yes to swim team for my oldest and I of course said yes to the pool pass. So that means the every day I sleep in, what!?!?!?!, that’s right my kids are still up at 6 but me? I sleep up until 7 when the baby and toddler wakes and it is glorious!!!!! Then we do half an hour of reading and 1 work sheet from the summer packet, gotta avoid that summer slide. Then at 11 it’s off to swim team, pick her back up at noon and either stay at the pool for a few hours or go home to either come back later or do what ever else we feel like and that my fellow moms is an amazing way to spend your summer.

Now all this time at the pool means less time at home to get things done so I need to simplify my chores. Dawn hand renewal is one of my favorite dish soaps as it quickly cuts through the grease and grime from my dishes without wrecking my hands (yay). This means that instead of a constant sink of dirty dishes, since 7 people use a lot of dishes, I do them all at once. I fill the dishwasher and wash the rest by hand since I can do it so fast with Dawn Hand Renewal… quick, easy and effective!

 

dawn hand renewal oatmeal mask

 

This summer since I have all this free time, I said I was letting the kids be bored, I can take a moment to indulge myself and do things like a homemade face mask. For the first time ever I tried an exfoliating oatmeal mask and trust me you want to do this! Plus clean up will be a breeze afterwards with dawn Hand Renewal.

 

dawn oatmeal face mask

 

Exfoliating Oatmeal Mask

It’s officially summer (as in the kids are out of school) and that means cook outs and getting together with friends and neighbors. Pier 1 is one of my favorite places for decor items for indoors and out, I even registered there when I got married. So when I decided to host some friends and neighbors for dinner I knew Pier 1 would have everything and more to turn my yard into an outdoor oasis. If I had an unlimited budget I would have a swingasan and  fabulous outdoor sectional with bright colored pillows, so many things to wish for from Pier 1!

With a house full of young kids I knew I needed to get melamine plates and acrylic glasses so nothing gets broken thus ruining our party. I really love the bright and bold pattern on the plates I found and the matching trays and bowls are perfect for a party. The clarity acrylic drinkware is not only great for outdoors, but day to day as well and the stackable acrylic goblets are perfect! Speaking of these goblets they would make a great hostess gift if you are attending a cook out. SO muich great stuff to be found at Pier 1.

We kept our party simple and fun and served chips and salsa, hummus, watermelon and strawberry chicken salad on croissants. We invited over some neighbors and enjoyed a nice warm evening, sunny but not too hot! While shopping at Pier 1 I fell in love with the wide array of lanterns that are perfect for both light and decor, plus if you put a citronella candle in them they keep the bugs away too. I hung this mosaic lantern up and the other sat on the table. When my guests left I sent them home with a 10% off coupon to help them as they decorate their own outdoor oasis.

4 Eco-friendly Car Tips to Get You Back on the Road from WaterSavers #Giveaway

kia soul 2014
I am working with the International Carwash Association to share these tips. However, my opinions are entirely my own and I have not been paid to publish positive comments.

Summer is finally here and I don’t know about your car, but winter is always hard on my car. There is no washing to be done when the temps re below freezing and our cars get coated with salt and grime ewwww. Then there is all the dirt and grime my kids dragged inside, I try to vacuum inside the garage but let’s be honest I just want to be in house when it is cold. WaterSavers has some great eco-friendly tips to get your car back on ths road ready for summer, all shiny and clean!

 

1.       Wash your car at a professional car wash. Winter months can be especially hard on your vehicle and washing your car is an easy first step to making your car feel new again. Using a professional car wash is a great way to protect the environment. According to the International Carwash Association, WaterSavers professional car washes use an average of 40 gallons of water or less per car while recycling and filtering their water to prevent harmful chemicals from going into our rivers and streams. Professional car washes also remove salt from the undercarriage of your vehicle, which is a must after a long winter.  By comparison, the average home washing machine uses 41 gallons per cycle, and a garden hose uses 63 gallons of water in just five minutes. You can learn more, and find a WaterSavers wash at Washwithwatersavers.com.

 

  kia sorento interior

 

2.       Give the inside a deep clean. Winter’s elements are hard on the outside of your car, but many people forget the abuse the vehicle’s interior takes as well. Think of how many times you’ve crawled into your vehicle with dirty, snowy feet and you can begin to understand why cleaning the inside is necessary. Apply some baking soda and a rubber sponge to your floor mats for an environmentally friendly and efficient clean. Then, wipe down interior surfaces with a microfiber cloth and vacuum the fabric and floor to remove dirt, sand, salt and dust.

 

3.       Don’t forget the maintenance check. Winter is finally over, but that doesn’t mean your vehicle can skip an overall maintenance check, especially if you want to save energy. Make sure to have your oil changed and give your vehicle an once-over. Check the fluid levels as well. The more efficiently your vehicle runs, the more gas you’ll save. 

 

4.       How’s your tire pressure and alignment? Low tire pressure will cause your vehicle to overexert itself and waste gas so make sure your tires are up to the task. Your tires list their recommended pressure on the side. If you can’t find it, you can find the recommended tire pressure in your owner’s manual. It is also a good idea to have a certified technician conduct an alignment test since it could have been thrown off by driving over pot holes during the winter months.

 

WIN IT: One lucky Thrifty & Chic Mom reader will win a WaterSaver Prize pack that includes:

Gap Stick

o   A versatile auto accessory to help access the hard-to-reach areas of a vehicle. Designed with a strong magnetic hook, the gap stick can pick up a key ring, jewelry or anything else that has slipped between the seat and the center console.

·         Phone Caddy

o   A plastic phone holder that clips to air vents in any vehicle to keep your phone in view for GPS usage and close to charging outlets.

·         Auto Trash Bag

o   A sleekly designed bag with a bottom zippered compartment for extra garage bags or hand wipes.

A statement cardigan is essential for those cooler mornings or evenings and I fell in love with the Land’s End Women’s Regular Fine Gauge Supima Crewneck Yoke Embellished Cardigan.

If you love the cardigan but could do without the beading Land’s End offers this cardigan all the time in a rainbow of colors!

 

lands end madras shorts

 

Shorts and I have a love hate relationship and are only worn when they are bermuda style.

I love this bright plaid in pink and green and they are long enough that I don’t feel uncomfortable.  I added the Land’s End Women’s Regular Sleeveless Lightweight Cotton Modal Crossover Shirt in white, it is slightly sheer so I wear my Bravado nursing tank under it and since it is cold I added a jean jacket. I paired them with flats but they look super cute with heels too!

My friend Andrea has been featuring fabulous fashions from PrAna for awhile now and every time she wears a pair of cute colored pants I am reminded I need to get some. PrAna generously let me style an outfit and the first thing I chose was the Kara jeans, I knew I had to have them and they are just as amazing as I hoped. The fit is perfect, very flattering, and the color is vibrant and eye catching. On top of all that they are made of stretch denim which means they are really comfortable.

Since I went with a bold pant I looked for a more neutral top and settled on the Molly Tank in white. The Molly Tank is made of 100% organic cotton and has pretty gold and silver florals to add interest while still making it a perfect shirt to pair with bold colored jeans. Since I love to layer I knew I needed something for over my tank while the weather is still on the cool side and I fell in love with the Kara Denim jacket. Like it’s pants counterpart this jacket is super comfortable made of stretch material and the silhouette is stylish and flattering. This is the perfect denim jacket for someone who needs to move easily and can’t be restrained by traditional denim.

Spring Fashion: David Bromstad Collection for Naturalizer Giveaway

bromstad Ursela shoe

 

I told you awhile back about the David Bromstad for Naturalizer collection and how I got to attend a fun Google Hangout with him. Then I got a David Bromstad for Naturalizer purse, the fabulous white and gold Bromstad Vida. Well now I get to FINALLY show you the shoes, that’s right the fabulous floral printed shoes that are part of the Bromstad for Naturalizer collection.

I really fell in love with the floral print that runs throughout the collection so when I saw that the Bromstad Ursela, a cute ballet flat, comes in the floral print I knew it was the shoe for me. The shoe is a cream base with orange, purple and pink flowers as well as a gold toe and heel. With all the gold I have been incorporating into my wardrobe for spring I knew I would have lots to wear these shoes with. If you are worried about styling a printed shoe don’t be, just take your inspiration from the shoe and build an outfit from there.

I started with a purple tee to match the purple flowers. From there I added gold jewelry and my favorite moto jacket with gold trim. I think the outfit came together perfectly and I love how the shoes are a fun print against a solid outfit. The Bromstad for Naturalizer Ursela also comes in pink with gold and solid gold, both of which are adorable.
