Finding the Perfect Bra with Jockey Fit Kit

I received a free product as part of a promotional program with Jockey® and MomSelect. All opinions are my own.

Jockey Fit Kit

Did you know that about 1 out of 3 women wear the wrong bra size? Getting fit for a bra shouldn’t be a one time thing as our bodies grow and shrink throughout our lives. With the Jockey Fit Kit I can continue to find the right fit as I go down each pant size!

Losing weight is hard work and I want to show off my hard work in my new clothes but one thing was holding me back… my bras!

While losing pant sizes I was also losing in other areas as well and these issues needed to be addressed. Not to mention the fact that I’ve breastfed two kids (still nursing occasionally with my daughter) and the girls just aren’t what they used to be 5 years ago.

I turned to the experts and was sent a Jockey Fit Kit to find the perfect fit for my changing body. [Read more…]

After hearing wonderful things about juicing and watching Fat Sick and Nearly Dead on Netflix a few months back I decided to get serious about researching great juicers.

Finding Our Daily Groove with the Joovy Groove Umbrella Stroller

Joovy Groove

This summer our family is on the move. From big family vacations, to trips to the beach, to days at the fair, we have a lot on our summer bucket list. Since retiring our double stroller for the past few months we were not looking forward to getting it back out for the events we have coming up.

So we decided to research and find a great lightweight umbrella stroller that the kids could take turns using when we go out on our adventures. When the Joovy Groove arrived at our door for review we knew that we had found “the one” for our summer traveling needs.

Not only did our Groove come in a snazzy Orangie tangerine color perfect for summertime, it also had all of the features we needed in a lightweight umbrella stroller: large shade cover, large basket for storage, drink holder for the kids. Plus this stroller folds up compactly and has plenty of other great features to talk about!

Keep Moving in Style with the New Fitbit Flex

fitbit flex

It’s no surprise that over the past few months I’ve kicked up the motivation and have started moving more regularly. Since first being introduced to Fitbit and receiving my Ultra I’ve increased the steps I take daily from an average of 5,000 to 10,000.

As a Fitbit ambassador I’ve enjoyed testing out and reviewing the products Fitbit continually creates and I love how much better each product gets!

Since first receiving my Ultra I’ve had the chance to try out the Fitbit Zip and Fitbit Aria scale. And now my Fitbit family includes the new Fitbit Flex. As soon as I saw that my Flex arrived for review I started jumping for joy and quickly figured out how to charge and use it ASAP.

Oh my wow! I am in LOVE with the Fitbit Flex. Not only do I consider it a fashionable accessory, I love how it keeps me on track and determined to constantly push myself through the day.

Mother Daughter Piggy Paint Spa Party

This article is sponsored by Piggy Paint

Over the past few weeks I’ve felt as if I haven’t had a chance to really spend one-on-one time with my daughter. We both keep very busy between playdates, preschool, and family activities so when I was offered the chance to create a special moment with her I took it!

Even though she’s only two she has proven to be quite the girly girl. She is obsessed with all things hair and makeup, including nail polish. So when I went in search for a safe nail polish to use for her I chose Piggy Paint. And as I’ve mentioned before, we love it!

In addition to the three colors we already have, and the nail polish remover we recently purchased at our favorite hair cutting salon, we received some new colors to try out. We decided to share the fun with friends and invited a few moms and daughters over for a Motehr Daughter Piggy Paint Spa Party.

How to Choose Eco Friendly Menstrual Products

eco friendly menstrual products 1

Since our family has started to make a more conscious effort to become eco-friendly over the past four years there was one thing that I just never jumped on board with. And that was eco friendly menstrual products.

It might have been the fact that I was either pregnant or nursing during a majority of that time and therefore had no use for them. I only had three cycles between starting again after having my son and getting pregnant with my daughter. Lucky.

But now I have no plans of becoming pregnant again and needed a great solution. So I set out to find the perfect eco friendly menstrual products for me. Here’s what worked – and what didn’t – for me.

The Perfect Jalapeno Guacamole Turkey Burger

Living in So Cal I am constantly craving something spicy to eat. This burger? It’s the perfect amount of mild heat I need to make the meal tasty. And the best part? I don’t have to shell out much money to create a restaurant-quality gourmet burger.

I was hoping to also include some delicious Wholly salsa as well but my store didn’t carry it. I’ll be heading out again to purchase some from another retailer before the super bowl because you better believe that these are going to be on the menu! With Wholly salsa.

The Living Coast Discovery Center San Diego – An Adventure in our Backyard

Living Coast Discovery Center San Diego

Living Coast Discovery Center San Diego

I’ve lived in San Diego all my life and am still amazed when I find out about places I’ve never been before. When I first heard about the Living Coast Discovery Center San Diego while visiting their booth at the fair I was excited to find out how much they had to offer.

While we’ve been members of Sea World, currently have memberships at the San Diego Zoo and Birch Aquarium, and go to the museums and beaches whenever we can, we still crave new experiences. Especially when they’re only 10 minutes away from our house. The Living Coast Discovery Center offers this and more!

This weekend we headed out to the Discovery Center to participate in a VIP Experience. And boy did we feel like VIPs on our visit!

Zoom, Zoom, Zoom! We’re Off with the Joovy Zoom 360

Ever since I found out I was pregnant with my first child I’ve wanted a quality jogging stroller. Before finding out I was pregnant, I started running with a group of co-workers. I would run about 12 miles a week, up to 6 miles each run, in an effort to lose weight and stay in shape. When I found out I was pregnant I stopped running as much and eventually stopped all together.

I assumed that if I got a jogging stroller I’d be able to pick right back up and start running again. But life got in the way, I didn’t purchase a jogging stroller, and the strollers I borrowed from neighbors and family just didn’t make the cut.

So here it is,4 years later, and I finally have my jogging stroller, the Joovy Zoom 360. And boy was it worth the wait!!

As soon as it arrived in the mail, I opened it and had it assembled in less than 15 minutes. Then my daughter and I started playing with it. We’ve had a lot of fun testing it out!

What I love about this jogger is that I didn’t have to purchase any optional accessories.

What the Joovy Zoom Includes:
  • Parent Organizer – Includes a neoprene parent organizer that holds 2 cups and has a zippered storage container.
  • Rain/Wind Cover
  • Wheel Pump
  • 5 Point Harness
  • Reflective
  • Safety Tether
  • Shock absorbing suspension

That means that the Joovy Zoom 360 is not only very affordable at $269.99, you also don’t have to purchase a lot of accessories after you purchase the stroller. They all come with it!

Weather Coverage 
The first thing I noticed about the Joovy Zoom after assembling it is the large canopy. None of my previous strollers have the coverage that this stroller does. Not only does it completely shade my daughter and son when they’re in full sun, it’s also adjustable to fit perfectly with any situation.

The Zoom also comes with a rain cover that easily covers your child from the weather and keeps them nice and dry as you enjoy your workout. That means no excuses!

Easy Fold & Compact Storage
The Zoom is also very easy to fold. With the simple push and lift of two items, the Zoom folds compactly and securely together with the help of a latch. The Zoom fits perfectly in the trunk of my small compact car and our family station wagon.

The Zoom is also very light weight. It’s very easy to lift up into the trunk of my car and to carry from one place to another when storing it.


Swivel Wheel

This stroller is built for running, walking, and everything in between.

For serious runners, the front wheel has an option to lock the swivel wheel in a straight position. It’s lightweight, steers easily with one hand, and includes a safety strap to wear while exercising. While walking around and more casual jogs, I’m able to unlock the straight wheel and use the swivel wheel for even easier mobility.

The Ride

As I’m running, I don’t want to struggle with steering a stroller. The Zoom simply glides where I push it. I steer with one hand and hardly feel any resistance when I’m on the go. I can run at my own pace, change up speeds, and switch from one terrain to another without affecting the performance of the stroller.

When my daughter falls asleep on on walks and runs I can easily adjust the seat by pulling on the straps in the back. There isn’t just one or two positions, I can recline the seat back as far as I’d like until I reach the fully reclined position. This is perfect for when I know my daughter is sleepy but she refuses to lay back when the seat is in the reclined position. I just recline it a bit so she doesn’t even realize she’s reclined a bit. Then 5 minutes into our jog, she’s passed out!


Optional Infant Car Seat Adapter

Joovy offers 3 optional car seat adapters for the Zoom 360:

  • Graco
  • Peg Perego
  • Chicco

And the cost of these adapters are very affordable! The fact that this is the only optional accessory you’ll need to buy is amazing.

Her baby fits perfectly in the snack/cup holder

If you’re looking for a stroller that will not only create a comfortable ride for your child as you exercise, but also act as your go to stroller for any occasion, the Joovy Zoom 360 is for you! We take ours everywhere! From the beach to the zoo to the amusement park, I’ve found the perfect stroller in the Joovy Zoom. And I have no excuses when it comes to exercising!

Since my Joovy Zoom arrived in the mail I’ve used it 5 out of 7 days in the week. And I now run 3 days a week! I know that this stroller will be key in keeping me on track and making my way towards my goal weight.

Disclaimer: I received a Joovy Zoom 360 for review purposes only. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
