Heroes Eat M&Ms: #Recipe for M&M’s® Captain America Shield Pie! ~ #HeroesEatMMs #CollectiveBias #shop

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone.

HeroesEatMMsOne of my absolute favorite action movies I saw this year was Marvel’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier! It has everything I enjoy in a movie… action, adventure, superheroes, and of course a little eye candy. After screening the film, I knew this was one I definitely wanted to add to my home entertainment collection.

… and guess what? Captain America: The Winter Soldier is out on Blu-ray and DVD next Tuesday, September 9th! What better way to celebrate the release than with a Movie Night right at home? I have some pretty awesome Captain America themed recipes on my blog, but I’m excited to share with you my most recent recipe, featuring one of my favorite candies… M&M’s®!

Sparkly Savings & Teaching Kids Chores with Finish! + Printable Chore Chart ~ #SparklySavings #CollectiveBias #shopAs a busy mom who works outside of the home, one thing I feel I’m definitely limited on is TIME! Trust me, I’d much rather be spending time with my son or enjoying my favorite TV show than taking out the trash, doing laundry, or scrubbing dishes. Luckily my son is at the age where I can start teaching him responsibility to get him geared up for when I need him to actually help with chores around the house.

Since I can trust Finish dishwasher detergent to actually FINISH the job, I decided that having my son help “clean” the dishes with me was the perfect chore for him to add to his chore chart. All he had to do was add a Finish Gel Pac to the dishwasher, close it up, and push the cycle button!

Finish just doesn’t provide me with savings to my wallet though… their also saves me TIME! I like to make sure my dishes are sparkly clean when they come out of the dishwasher. So I admit, I used to be one of those people that would scrub their dish clean BEFORE placing it in the dishwasher. Nothing drove me crazy like pulling unclean dishes with specks of food still on them out of the dishwasher. Then I’d have to go back and scrub scrub scrub again.

Get Ready for Big Adventure with BIG HERO 6! ~ #BigHero6 #MeetBaymax

bighero6signEver since I was a young child I’ve always been a fan of Disney Animation films. I still remember seeing The Little Mermaid and Beauty and the Beast as a child in the movie theaters over and over and over again! Now that I have a little one, I can’t wait to share with him not only the Disney classics from my childhood, but also take him to experience the Disney magic in the movie theaters for himself!

Back in July I headed out to California for a few days of press events and film screenings! One of the movies I had the pleasure of enjoying a sneak preview of was BIG HERO 6. Now at that time the film was still in production, but from the scenes and footage of the film I was able to preview, I have to tell you, it’s going to be awesome!

First a little background on the film…BIG HERO 6 is an action-packed comedy-adventure about robotics prodigy Hiro Hamada who lives in San Fransokyo (yes that’s a mash-up of San Francisco and Tokyo!). When Hiro experiences a tragic event in his life, he turns to his closest companion, a robot named Baymax for comfort and friendship. It’s not long before Hiro and Baymax find themselves in the midst of a dangerous plot unfolding in their city. In order to solve the mystery, Hiro transforms himself, Baymax, and his group of crazy friends into high-tech heroes!

BigHero6HallwayPictured above was some great BIG HERO 6 artwork we saw in the hallways of Walt Disney Animation Studios! You can see Hiro and Baymax along with their friends adrenaline junkie Go Go Tamago, neatnik Wasabi, chemistry whiz Honey Lemon and fanboy Fred in their new hero transformations!

Amp Up Your Style Thanks to TRESemme & Walmart! ~ #AmpUpYourStyle

I received financial compensation in working with Global Influence in exchange for posting this campaign. All opinions are my own.

Know what I love about summer? The golden highlights it leaves in my hair! No trips to the salon for this girl, the Sun gives her the natural dye job without having to spend a penny. The downside though? My hair becomes more damaged from the sun exposure and UV rays. Dry, brittle, split end hair? No thank you! So while I love the natural highlights, the sun damage makes my hair harder to style and manage.

This is why I head to Walmart to find quality products at an affordable cost that I know will renew and replenish the moisture my hair has lost over the past few months. My hair needs to be ready for fall season styles!

Image 3Luckily Walmart and TRESemme have teamed up to help women like me get salon gorgeous hair this VMA season! Thanks to Walmart I’ll be rocking TRESemme VMA styled locks! I love watching the VMAs on MTV and seeing the red carpet pre-show. Always gives me such great ideas on how to style my hair for a rockin night out. I actually have long hair that goes well below my shoulders. I know I can rely on TRESemme products to keep it smooth, sleek, and manageable.

Walgreens4Last year I ventured into a weight loss journey and successfully lost 40 lbs over the spring and summer by making healthy choices! As winter came along, I found myself sluggish, not working out as much, and enjoying holiday goodies and winter comfort foods a little too much. By the time warm weather hit this year, I stepped on the scale and discovered I had gained quite a bit of the weight back. To say this was disheartening was an understatement.

Though I didn’t let it get me down for too long… Aside from my general health, there is an important reason of why I want to get in shape and boost my energy. That reason is this little guy below! This momma needs to be able to keep up with him and his energy!
