I was lucky enough to get the opportunity to review a special screening of Dolphin Tale 2 thanks to the Moms. In conjunction with Norwegian Cruise lines the Moms told us about their recent experiences while on a cruise. Sharing the fact that they are all family friendly and have activities for everyone to enjoy.
Dolphin Tale 2 is the second installment of this saga that follows the dolphin Winter’s story. It follows Winter’s story through her rescue and rehab. Winter has settled into her new life, but it is not without trials and challenges. The gist of the story is how does Winter deal with the loss of her dolphin friend.
The movie touches on some interesting issues such as death, and pain of losing your friend. You may have to answer some questions about these topics with your kids. The movie shows us how we can overcome some of the challenges that we face and how we can come out better for them.
This movie is one that will tug on your heart strings and making you cheer in the end.
It is now showing in movie theaters across the nation.
Finally, the Moms held a giveaway and a lucky winner got a family cruise on Norwegian Cruise Lines! They will be more giveaways in the future, I hope to be lucky.

Old Spice is a product that has always been in my life, I remember my dad using it and that smell lingering long after he had finished using it. It would only be right that my sweetie would be a user. He is always on the go, working outside and doing repairs on one thing or another. As part of his job he has to get out there and get his hands dirty and that means he is getting all sweaty and has to have major help when getting cleaned up. The product that he and I rely on is the best smelling Old Spice.

Tide is on a mission to change the way designers think about the fabrics incorporated in their collection and offer consumers a way to more easily care for their designer garments at home Last year, the brand joined forces with the Council of Fashion Designers of America to establish the Washable Fashion Initiative with the goals of educating designers on the benefits of washable fabrics, and promoting the future state of washable fashion within the industry.
Reese serves as the inaugural designer ambassador of the program. Inspired by the cleaning power of Tide Pods, Reese took a closer look at her own design process and the fabrics she was using to identify this new opportunity to incorporate fabrics into her garments that are washing machine friendly such as cotton, acrylic, wool, polyamide, polyurethane, elastane, polyester, rayon, and spandex.
This line features a variety of fashion-forward designer separates from cozy cable-knit sweaters to stylish jacquard skirts and dresses to metallic cargo pants. Each item can be cared for in laundry rooms across the country by using Tide Pods to ensure they remain beautiful wash after wash

As we are busy individuals we all have either a smartphone, tablet, laptop or all of them. We are constantly trying to stay connected and doing what needs to be done. As great as these gadgets are, they are still very fragile and how many times have we dropped our phone and cracked the screen. We also have our kids who use these gadgets and it is more than likely at some point they are going to drop it. Thankfully, we have Speck products, these include a large selection of covers and shells for your current devices.
I took a close look at two specific products to review for you.
The Speck iPhone CandyShell
When I first put the CandyShell on my iPhone I loved the way it looked on my phone. Of course, as soon as I put it on you can guess I dropped the phone. I was aghast I was like okay now I have gone and done it. When I turned it over, I was pleased to see that the phone was undamaged. The CandyShell also includes a silicone inner part so the phone was nicely cushioned.
If you put the case on don’t take it off often as it would make it week. It is nice and pretty it fits snug to the phone. The case is not bulky so it is not an extra weight for you to carry around.
Speck iPad mini HandyShell
The HandyShell is part of the new line from Speck. The cover snaps onto the back of the iPad and has a moveable handle. The handle can be used k the tablet on cabinet knobs for easy reference to make it more comfortable to hold, or to prop it up at different angles and orientations.
The Speck products that we got were good quality and looked nice. Each item comes in a vairiety of colors so it is nice to be able to choose what you like. Price $35 to $50 so they are about average for similar cases.

How to Train Your Dragon 2 is the latest hotness game around.
I was trilled when Spin Master sent me some of the toys in their dragon lineup.
The first one was the lonix building sets. This is a building block toy that I had not seen before but it is Spin Master’s own brand of LEGO compatible bricks. There are many familiar pieces but lonix’s innovation is that their shape shifting bricks which are like miniature transformers that you can build onto. You can check out the website to see a video on this.
Then you have the minfigs they start off as 24 bricks that unfold and you add the hair and the accessory plates to complete the figure. The end result is so cute your kids will have hours of enjoyment playing with these.
I also got the Giant Toothless Battle Set which features Drago and one of his dragon traps and Hiccup and Toothless. The center brick in Toothless is the Titan Beast shape shifting brick. Along with these they are smaller dragons that are built with mini winged and min four legged bricks. These sets are much smaller with around 15 to 20 pieces.
These are so cute and will be around just in time for the holidays for your kids to enjoy.

This is part of a sponsored collaboration with Huggies and Latina Mo Bloggers. However, all opinions expressed are my own.
On Saturday, August 30, 2014, I was fortunate to attend and event hosted by Latina Mom Bloggers and Huggies in North Bergen, NJ at the Jamaes Braddock North Hudson County Park.
The event was to highlight the partnership between Huggies and leading fitness movement expert Nikki Glor, and MyGym (national children’s fitness center) to show parents how to embrace those “Moving Moments.” Nikki teaches that you don’t have to wait for your child’s naptime to workout. Studies have shown that working out and being active with your child is a great way to bond and teach your child new moves. When you have baby, you’re going to need a reliable diaper. New Huggies Little Movers has soft velcro strips on the sides and front panel for an all around comfy fit that last. The New Huggies Little Movers Diapers with Double Grip Strips gives baby a comfier fit over time than Pampers Cruisers +
Nikki Glor is the founder and President of Nikki Fitness and her exercises have been featured in national media outlets. You can visit Nikki Fitness at http://www.nikkifitness.com/ to learn how you can sneak in a quick workout during play time at home or on the play ground. Check it out on Facebook and Twitter to get the free #movesoftheday and #mantrasoftheday.
One of the easy exercises is by doing the crab walk (face up) or bear crawl (face down on all fours) to and away from your baby and encourage them to crawl after you. This will work your arms, legs and core. While having baby practice their movement.

I was lucky enough to be able to attend the Active Family Project media event.
Did you know September is Youth Soccer Month? ! ‘Devious Maids’ star Ana Ortiz teamed up with the Active Family Project to kick off the ‘Play Soccer For a Change’ campaign a few days ago on August 19th. The campaign supports US Youth Soccer to give more families the opportunity to be active through soccer. Ana is a great person to do this since she’s also the celebrity spokesperson for Merck Consumer Care’s Active Family Project.
The goal of the ‘Play Soccer For a Change’ is to encourage family playtime during Youth Soccer Month. Soccer is a great sport to get kids active. The organizers are putting their money where their mouth is, however. For every like, comment or share on the Active Family Project Facebook page, from August 19th through September 30th, they will donate $1 to US Youth Soccer, up to $15,000, to go toward soccer equipment and training in underserved communities, giving more families the opportunity to be active together through soccer.
