Back To School with Chobani

Chobani

Chobani® has a long list of amazing products so it was a pleasure to try out their Greek Yogurt for kids and tots. I was sent Chobani® Greek Yogurt for Kids in flavors Strawberry and Grape as well as Chobani® Greek Yogurt for Tots in the flavor Apple. With a new school year underway and having both children in school, these have been our go to lunch box item and after school snack.

We care about how we make our yogurt, so it’s always delicious and always made with only natural ingredients. And with 25% less sugar and twice the protein compared to the leading kids’ yogurt*, and friends like Spider-Man on our side, our tubes and pouches make kids happy and moms happier. Every ingredient in every cup of Chobani®yogurt is natural, never artificial. Same with our tubes and pouches: real ingredients and real deliciousness for your real kid. Easy twist-off lids make for a scissor-free and mess-free opening. Plus, they’re re-sealable, so kids can start now and pop them back in the fridge for later. Tubes and pouches are perfectly portable for on-the-go snacking and freezable for lunchboxes, too.

Our favorites are the Grape and Strawberry Kids Greek Yogurt. Not only did Lucas and Lilly try out the products from Chobani® but so did my Mom and me. The Apple Tots Greek Yogurt was good but we all agreed that it was our least favorite, but just because we weren’t fans does mean you guys shouldn’t give them a try.

Paper Mate InkJoy Gel Pens 0.7

Print

WEBSITE FACEBOOK TWITTER INSTAGRAM

inkjoy pens

 I love back to school. Ever since I was a little girl I have had a really weird infatuation with office supplies and an odd collection of pens. One of my favorite kinds of pens has always been PaperMate. And I was so excited to see that the  InkJoy brand had a new type of pens. Now, my oldest son is left handed and we struggle buying pens for him because everything we buy claims to not smear as you write over it or it dries quick. And it’s not always the case. Gel pens always smear and he almost always ends up with pen on the side of his hand.

I was really excited to try out the InkJoy Gel 0.7. The ink dries 3x faster and the ink is super vivid and beautiful. I received a pack of 14 rainbow assortment colors. There is a ergonomic comfort grip that wraps the whole pen. Each pen has an ink level window and a plastic clip to attach your pen to your person or anything you need to. The InkJoy pens are great for school, home or office- doodling or even coloring the adult coloring books. One thing to rememeber (taken directly from the website): vs Pilot G2 based on average dry times of black, blue, red, and green. Individual dry times may vary by color

About (taken from website): Today, Paper Mate is introducing a wide range of leading edge, new products that meet the demands of today’s consumers. Our latest innovation, InkJoy Gel, helps spread joy, not smears! Gel pens write the best because of their vivid and bold lines, but the ink often smears, ruining the fun. We developed a gel pen with unique, quick-dry ink in 14 brilliant colors. From students to professionals, Paper Mate continues its love affair with the American public and the world. Brighten up your writing and spread joy with Paper Mate InkJoy.

End your Summer with these 3 Stress Relieving Mandalas Books

WEBSITE FACEBOOK TWITTER INSTAGRAM

Summer sports, vacations, finding things to do, and most of all having all your kids home for the whole summer can get very stressful for a parent.  Sometimes taking 5 minutes as a mom is hard when you have a house-full of kids running around. I have 4 kids from 20 months to 19 years old… I’m not sure how I get to shower. It’s been proven that Mandala- adult coloring books are great for stress- relief and calming anxiety. And for someone who is full of both and loves the adult coloring books, they work. My whole family loves them.

9781612435497-2

The Coloring Flower Mandala Postcards make the perfect gift for any mom who loves to color and write letters a lot. Or like me who has a lot of family out of town. There is 20 hand drawn madalas, easy tear-out postcards.  Because the card stock is thick, each postcard requires extra postage.

9781612435954.01

Coloring Bird Mandalas This is a very beautiful book- one of the prettier ones I have received. Full of 30 hand-drawn bird mandalas to ease your stress! Color intricate birds such as- finches, toucans, flamingos, parrots, peacocks, hummingbirds and owls. I can’t wait to see how my imagination colors these.

Calming Dot to Dot This is the first time that I have EVER seen anything like this for adults. When I was a little girl, my favorite thing was learning to count with connect the dots. Calming Dot to Dot is designed to help with focus, clarity and peace. Connect the dots with some numbers over 300!!! Designs such as animals, people, nature and buildings.

About (taken from website): As pop culture changes at the speed of the Internet, books have a powerful role to play in the interconnected world. But no new media has ever eliminated an existing media form. They force change, and with change comes opportunity. That is why our printed books work hand in hand with e-book and online versions of their content.

File away your Year with Shoplet

Finding folders at the store that will hold all of the papers that me and my kids have is difficult to do! My daughter and son are paper hoarders and love to keep papers from the beginning of the year until the end even if it’s for a class they already finished. My son and daughter will rip folders left and right by overloading them with papers and I always try to find a way to fix that. From Shoplet, we got 3-in-1 SuperTab Section Folders and an Organized Up Vertical Expanding File with SuperTab.

With the section folders, I am wanting to file stuff away for not only memories but putting things in so I know where they are. With my youngest son going to preschool, I am wanting to have a couple filing folders for him to keep his stuff in. With each of these being different colors, I can set a certain color for each of the kids. The expanding file is what my oldest daughter was most excited to see. She has been looking for one of these for school so she doesn’t have to always carry around folders. With the vertical file, you don’t have to try to read your papers sideways and guess if it’s the right ones, your papers go in up and down and you can see what they are a lot easier. I absolutely love all of the products they have on Shoplet and whenever I get to review something, I get very excited. I know I will always look on Shoplet for all of my office supply and other needs.

About taken from website: It was 1994: the Internet was still in its infancy and e-commerce was still a relatively new phenomenon. During this exciting time, I crystallized a vision of a better way for businesses to shop online, which inspired me to take a huge risk by leaving my highly paid position with Goldman Sachs. Through the chaos of the early web, many players emerged and crumbled; more people told me that my vision could not succeed than could. Our first office was my apartment and we were a staff of only one. Small and underfunded, it was additionally difficult recruiting the right people to join our team; I wanted my employees to be just as passionate about my vision as I was. That vision would evolve into Shoplet.com
