Make Back to School Fun with PJ Masks!

Disclosure: I was provided with the products in the post to facilitate my review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.  Please see my disclosure policy)

Hip Hip Hooray! The kids are finally back in school and we are adjusting to our new schedule! I don’t know about you, but those first few weeks of school are tiring! It can be challenging getting everyone up early, packing lunches, making sure homework is done, etc… Thanks to the folks at Entertainment One for supplying my son Brady with some PJ Masks goodies, so that I could brighten his mood with cupcakes, a t-shirt, backpack and other goodies when he arrived home from school!

PJ Masks offers products for back to school or any time of the year, including clothing and backpacks from Accessory Innovations and Happy Threads Apparel. Isn’t the shirt and backpack adorable that Brady is wearing in the picture above? I love the bright, vibrant colors! Be sure to check out retailers like Amazon and Kohl’s for the best selection of these products. They also offer items like this PJ Masks Sticker Activity Box that you can find at your local Party City. These would be great party favors if your little one wants a PJ Masks party! 

The PJ Masks cupcakes that I made were so easy to create!  Thanks to the PJ Masks cupcake decorating kit that was included in our box of goodies, it made decorating them a breeze! The PJ Masks cupcake decorating kit includes cupcake liners, decorative coins and sprinkles. You can find this cupcake decorating kit at your local Walmart.

After I made the cupcakes and let them cool, I frosted them and placed the sprinkles on top. Then, I added on some of the decorative PJ Masks coins included in the kit. This was so easy! What a great way to decorate if you have a an upcoming PJ Masks birthday party. My son Brady loved his cupcakes and he felt like a superhero!

In addition to the products that we were sent, PJ Masks has added several new products to their lineup this season including: Good2Grow Juice, a new assortment of PJ Masks toys from Just Play, Catboy and Gekko lace-free, multi-colored LED light-up sneakers from SG Companies, new book titles from Simon and Schuster Children’s Publishing, and electronic learning aids from VTech. These products will be wonderful gift ideas for the upcoming holiday season as well!

Summer is finally here! It’s time to get outside and to be active with family and friends! It also means it is time to have super summer fun with the PJ Masks! As a PJ Masks Ambassador, I was recently sent some items for my son Brady to enjoy during this summer!

PJ Masks Miniature Golf Set- This golf set is so fun and Brady could not wait to open the package to play golf. This set includes: 2 clubs, 2 balls, 3 targets, 3 target holders, 1 hole with flag. I like that this set can be used for indoor and outdoor fun and you can create your very own miniature golf course!

PJ Masks Frisbee and Flying Disc- These are both so lightweight and perfect for those days you are at the beach or park. I know that both of my boys will enjoy these items and that we will get a lot of use of them this summer!

PJ Masks Zak Water Bottle– This 16oz. water bottle features Gekko, Catboy, and Owlette and keeps beverages cold. My son Brady loves having his own fun water bottle and I love that this allows him to get his water in each day especially when we are outside in the hot sun. 

PJ Masks Catboy Sunglasses– Catboy is one of Brady’s favorite PJ Masks characters, so he was thrilled to see these Catboy sunglasses in his package! These sunglasses are great for any PJ Masks fan!

And, don’t miss out on all of the fun this summer as the PJ Masks have fun-filled new shows, which begin rolling out on Friday, June 15 at 10:00a.m.These are part of the Disney Junior Channel’s “Fantastic FRIYAYS.”

“May the Best Power Win”: The PJ Masks are excited about their new powers, but Romeo creates an “All-in-One” belt for his Robot which can defeat all of their superhero abilities. Catboy, Owlette and Gekko will have to work together as a team and unify their powers to stop Romeo.

“Moonbreaker”Romeo’s Robot is digging on the moon to grab a giant Lunar Crystal. In order to stop him, the PJ Masks must trust Luna Girl and give her back her Lunar Magnet to heal the moon while they stop Romeo.

Premiering Friday, June 22 at 9:30a.m.

“The Race Up Mystery Mountain”: Catboy realizes being the best isn’t always the solution when he and the other PJ Masks must prevent Night Ninja from stealing a magical ring hidden atop the Mystery Mountain.

I hope that you and your little PJ Masks fans have a super summer filled with great memories and lots of laughs!

The reviewer has been compensated in the form of a Best Buy Gift Card and/or received the product/service at a reduced price or for free.

As a blogger, I am always on the lookout for ways to make my life easier, especially when it comes to the computer. In addition, I love a computer that allows me to work faster so that I am more productive with my time. The Google Pixelbook from Best Buy is a new high performance Chromebook that is sure to help you work faster and easier. Through April 7, we can save $100 on our purchase of this amazing product! 

Here are some important features about the Google Pixelbook, and what makes it the perfect computer for anyone!

  1. Google Assistant Built in– It’s the first laptop with the Google Assistant built in, so you’ll be able to get more done faster and smarter. It’s easily accessible via the dedicated Google Assistant key on the keyboard, or by using the “Ok Google” wake word you’re already familiar with. You can also use the Pixelbook Pen, which is a plus in my book! 
  2. Size – At just 10.3mm, Pixelbook is Google’s thinnest laptop ever, with a lightweight aluminum construction that enhances portability. 
  3.  Powered by Chrome OS – This computer will ensure that you always have the latest security and software features with software that automatically updates in the background.
  4. Pixelbook Pen1– the smart, responsive stylus — designed to enhance the way you work and play.
  5. Touchscreen– I love a computer with a touchscreen, and the Google Pixelbook is no exception! The 360° touchscreen and versatile 4-in-1 design will seamlessly adjust to whatever you’re doing. How cool is that?

  6. Apps for work and play– Do more of what you love with apps including Google Drive, Docs, Sheets, Slides, Gmail, Photos and more. You can always download your favorites from YouTube Red and Google Play Movies to enjoy even without Wi-Fi.
  7. Speed and Battery Life– I love this feature! Your Pixelbook will start up in under 10 seconds and stay fast throughout the day, and won’t slow down over time. With up to 10 hours of use, Pixelbook’s battery lets you stay on the move without looking for outlets. And when you do need a charge, get two hours of use with just 15 minutes of charging. Wow, that is very impressive! 
  8. Price– This computer is priced very reasonably. Don’t forget that through April 7, the Google Pixelbook is $100 off at Best Buy! Sounds like a great time to upgrade for a new and sleek computer!

Blinker: The New Way to BUY & SELL Your Car!

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Blinker. All thoughts and opinions are my own. (Please see my disclosure policy)

My family and I recently went through the tedious process of buying a new vehicle. I don’t have to tell you that  buying (or selling) a vehicle can be quite a tiresome and long task. I strongly dislike going from dealership to dealership only to be given the run-around about paperwork, financing, hidden costs, and more.

Thanks to Blinker, a new and Free mobile app, it is quicker, easier and safer to sell (and buy) your car yourself. The middleman is cut out of the equation allowing you to save thousands! Blinker puts you in control of car ownership, allowing you to buy, sell and finance cars yourself, all on your smartphone. Sounds intriguing, right? Before I continue with the amazing details about Blinker, I wanted to let you know that for a limited time, when you download Blinker, (for free) enter code MySweetSavings and list your car for sale, you’ll earn $200 when it sells! Now that I really have your attention, let’s continue on with this conversation…..

Buying a car with Blinker:

Download the Free Blinker app.

Enter your zip code to see what vehicles are available in your area. The vehicle listings not only include price, make and model, they also show mileage, price comparisons, vehicle history and a Carfax report, and more!

Buying a car with Blinker is as easy as snapping a photo-

Blinker’s patented mobile app makes the approval process as simple as snapping a photo of your driver’s license. They then securely pull information from your image, ask a few questions and display your loan terms in just a few minutes. If you would rather be pre-qualified via computer, that option is also available. Buying a car has never been easier! 

Know your monthly payment for every vehicle-

Once you’re pre-qualified with Blinker, you will know your financial budget without having to lock yourself in a loan. When you are ready to shop, browse the marketplace to see what your monthly payment would be on verified vehicles near you.

YOU are in control of your vehicle financing-

Car financing can be the scariest part in the car-buying process. With Blinker, you can get a car loan all on your own! This allows you to see your lowest possible rate rather than hear it from someone on the other side of a desk. 

Selling a car with Blinker:

Did you know that 28 million people in the US sell their cars to dealerships each year and lose thousands of dollars? Blinker makes selling your car a breeze! It really is as easy as 1,2 3!

 

Snap a photo of your car

Blinker will automatically pull up all the details on your car – including mileage, specs, plus the estimated Black Book™ value so you will instantly know how to price it fairly.

List it with the tap of a button

When you list your car on Blinker, it will be automatically listed on other major marketplaces – so you don’t need to do any additional work to reach additional buyers.

Put your feet up and wait

Once your car is listed, interested buyers will message you directly in the app. Isn’t it nice when technology does most of the work for you? When an offer comes in, you will immediately receive a push notification via the app, as well as an email. You can choose to accept the offer or negotiate a better offer with the buyer. Sounds easy, right? 

How much can Blinker save me?

Blinker will not only save you time, but it will also put cash back into your wallet! I like the sound of that! When the free Blinker app launched in Texas, people were earning an average $3,000 more than trading in at at the dealership! Blinker has also serviced millions of dollars in auto loans and won a 2017 SXSW Interactive Innovation Award.
Don’t forget….for a limited time, when you download Blinker, (for free) enter code MySweetSavings and list your car for sale, you’ll earn $200 when it sells! Using Blinker really is a win-win!

Save on Easy Plant-Based Meal Solutions at Publix

This post is sponsored by Pinnacle Foods & Boulder Brands. All comments and opinions are my own.

As the mom of a busy family, I love to make sure that I incorporate delicious, yet healthy ingredients into each of our meals. I feel that it can sometimes be a challenge to find items that are rich in nutrients, full of flavor, and easy to get on the table.

Thankfully, I can create healthier, plant-based meal solutions with items found right at my local Publix. With plant-based products from Birds Eye ®, Gardein TM and Earth Balance ®, I can be assured that I am feeding my family high-quality foods without giving up taste or convenience.

Gardein products offer a range of tasty plant-based foods with a meaty texture. While they taste like meat, these products are made from soy, wheat and pea proteins, vegetables and ancient grains like quinoa, amaranth, millet and kamut (to name a few). Gardein products are also cholesterol-free and have no trans or saturated fats. In addition, they are animal and dairy free, so they make a fantastic meal solution for many lifestyles! We tried the Gardein Seven Grain Crispy Tenders and my boys loved them! ! They are bursting with flavor in every bite and I feel good about what I am giving my family to eat!

Birds Eye Steamfresh Southwest Style Protein Blends were the perfect complement to the Gardein Seven Grain Crispy Tenders! Located in the freezer section at Publix, Birds Eye Steamfresh Protein Blends are packed with protein and nutrient rich vegetables, grains and beans. They have 10 grams of plant-based protein per serving and are high in iron. I especially love that these can be cooked right in the bag, and are ready to eat in just minutes! While in the freezer section at Publix, make sure that you also look for Birds Eye Steamfresh Superfood Blends. This line of ready-to-go dishes, are made from nutrient-rich vegetables, grains and fruits. What a fun and quick way to enjoy nature’s healthiest ingredients steamed right in one bag!

Earth Balance Original Buttery Spreads are definitely my favorite when it comes to buttery spreads. It has definitely made a name for itself thanks to its creamy spreadable texture. It is perfect on toast or any of your other favorite snacks. I also love that it is plant-based, vegan, lactose-free, non-dairy, gluten-free and has 0g Trans-fat, no MSG, and is also non-GMO.

Would you like to save on these delicious plant-based products? Head over to www.getthesavings.com/chooseplantbased where you can score fantastic savings! From 2/17/18-3/2/18, you can save $1 off any 1 Gardein Item or $1 off any 1 Earth Balance Buttery Spread. In addition, pick up 2 for $5 Birds Eye Protein Blends, and 2 for $6 Birds Eye Superfood Blends.
