So it is Spring and Summertime again and that means time for skirts, shorts and skorts. It also means time to make sure that our legs are silky smooth. Shaving can be one of those “hassles” when you are running late. Well our friends at Gillette has made it a little easier and faster! They have taken their Venus razor that I already love and have added Olay Moisture Bars! There is no more need for a separate shaving cream. You just wet the razor and it releases a light lather. The only way they could make it easier is by shaving our legs for us.

The Venus & Olay razor has 5 blades. This is so that you can get that close, comfortable shave. Plus the head adjusts to our curves so it easy to get that close silky shave even over the tricky shaving areas such as our knees and ankles. The Venus & Olay also has a soft grip handle, it keeps you in control even in the shower! The Olay Moisture Bars smell amazing! They contain skin-enhancing elements that are great for your skin.  Petrolatum helps lock in skin’s moisture for less dryness and Glycerin helps offer that goddess glow!

Venus & Olay razors come with one refillable cartridge and shower hook. It  sells for approximately $8.99-$10.99. You can buy replacement packages of three replacement cartridges for about $14.99 – $19.49. Venus & Olay razors are available for you to purchase at your local  food, drug, convenience and mass merchandise stores throughout the United States.

Be sure to follow Gillette Venus on Facebook and Twitter! And check them out online for their latest news and products!

Hello from the author of “Raising Amazing Children (… While Having a Life of Your Own)” Deborah Drezon Carroll:
Our daughter’s wedding was a glorious event for us, as you might imagine. After it was over, though, one thing stuck in my mind. People, our friends and other guests whom we didn’t know, repeatedly came up to us and said, “Your daughters are amazing. What’s your secret?”
While that is a beautiful sentiment, and may even be true (if I do say so myself), I wondered: Are they really amazing? We have three daughters who are really just lovely people with good hearts and good souls. They weren’t exceptional students (they were good students for the most part) or outstanding athletes (they did try, though); they didn’t cure cancer in our basement, or discover the secret to solving the world hunger problem. They didn’t win scholarships or attend Ivy League colleges. They just were good kids (most of the time but certainly not without challenges along the way) who grew up to be teachers.
And that’s when I realized: maybe they are amazing.
If the goal of being a good parent is to do the job well enough for our kids to leave us someday and be happy people who are independent and live with integrity and decency, and if achieving that is amazing, maybe we were all amazing.
I thought about how we achieved such greatness. What was our parenting secret?
My husband and I had both been teachers early in our careers. We learned a great deal about how children develop. We learned strategies for facilitating growth in young people by treating them with respect, trust, faith, and high expectations. And, when we had our first child we got some very good advice.
The advice was to find ways to integrate our child into our lives rather than turning our lives completely upside down to integrate ourselves into our child’s life. In other words, we were advised to raise our kids while living life the way we loved it before our kids were born as much as possible. We were told to find ways to keep doing the things we loved so we could share them with our kids. And so we did. Whatever we did, we invited our kids to do it with us. From cleaning the house to traveling across the country on a camping trip (Yes, we did go on a cross country trip with three kids under the age of 5!), if it was something we did before we had kids, we did it with our kids. We tried not to give up any of the things that mattered to us before we became parents, we just found ways to incorporate our children into those activities.
As a result, our children learned life skills by experiencing life with us. They learned to love reading and writing as we do so they value education. They can do simple home repair, they all did their own laundry since they were very little, and each can negotiate a tight deal of any sort. They understand the value of work and the need to budget money as they watched us do both and learned by seeing our struggles and our successes. They learned compassion and caring for family, friends, and strangers as they lived both on a daily basis. In short, they learned how to live life by living it with us and witnessing the ins and outs of making a life work.
The simple tasks of everyday living provide parents with opportunities to teach children something of value each day. By inviting your kids to work alongside as you do things like shopping, housecleaning, gardening, cooking, home repair, traveling and more, you both win. You’ll save time as you’ll have helping hands to get the jobs done faster, your child will learn priceless life skills, and you’ll all have more time to enjoy life together.
By incorporating your kids into your life, you get to continue living a life that makes you happy. Happy parents raise happy children. Your kids will thank you for it… some day!
Raising Amazing Children (…While Having a Life of Your Own). The title sums up our parenting secret.

Dapper Snappers Big Kids Belts Review

Alexandria is so tall and thin that it is impossible to find her pants that fit her in both length and waist! If I find her the pants that fit her in the length then they are huge in the waste and they end up falling down. I have tried several types of belts and have found one that we both like. The leather ones that you usually find at your local Walmart or Target, hurt her stomach or irritate her skin because they don’t stay in the belt loops. Recently, we had the chance to try Dapper Snappers Big Kids Belts. These remind me of the belts from when I was younger. It was white and had rainbows all over it and I thought it was so cool. Alexandria LOVES Dapper Snappers! They are easy for her to buckle and unbuckle when she needs to go to the bathroom and I don’t have to worry about her fussing with a belt and having an accident or needing help in school when she needs to use the bathroom.

Dapper Snappers are made from quality Suspender Elastic, perfect for a snug but not squeezing fit. They have an easy interlocking buckle that makes it super easy to get in and out. They are fully adjustable so it will easily grow with your child. They are available in several colors sure to match any outfit. Dapper Snappers are Made in the USA and CPSIA tested and approved!

They are Moms and Dads, Aunts and Uncles, some are even Grandma and Grandpa’s  and started their dream for their family. They have struggled and hit every bump along the way.

Recently I had the opportunity to work with Party Beans and from start to finish the process is exciting. You start off the process by selecting your products. They have a huge selection to choose from. Next you choose what candy you would like to fill you items with. You can choose from mints, Jelly Belly jelly beans or M&M candies. Not only can you personalize your favor by choosing the candy but if you choose to fill your favors with the jelly beans or M&Ms you can personalize the colors or flavors you would like to match the colors of your event or occasion. You can even personalize your favors by adding your own images or choose an image from their clip art library. You can even add personalized text to your products. Finally you review and place your order.

When I started to create my first Party Bean Favor. I had several different choices to choose from for every step. From what kind of container I wanted, to what kind of candy I would like it filled with. Plus, you can pick specific colors or flavors to really personalize your gift.
