In case your frozen toes and foggy breath weren’t indicator enough, let me remind you that it is WINTER!

Here in California, we don’t get “real” winter… I mean, I can wear my flip-flops and a hoodie most days! But sometimes when the girls and I want a taste of something really wintery, we pop on a movie and enjoy some snowball antics vicariously. Luckily, a brand new SpongeBob DVD is out TODAY and is filled with frosty fun!

Welcome to Beauty 411!
Today’s Topic is Daily Makeup Favorites

We have featured a lot of our favorite beauty products in the past, which is why I have decided to start a little series called Beauty 411. Aside from our usual themed days, Beauty 411 will be a random series where we will talk about different beauty related topics. We also have some guest bloggers and beauty experts lined up and will be joining us for unique Beauty 411 articles.

SnoozeShade, the universal stroller and car seat blackout blind, can help baby sleep during nap time, even with distractions during trips to the park, returning holiday gifts at the super busy mall or strolling down a noisy sidewalk. Do you like to go out for dinner? OF COURSE YOU DO! Does your baby like to sleep as soon as you get into the restaurant and gets really fussy because its bright and noisy? OF COURSE IT DOES! With SnoozeShade, you and your dinner party can carry on with mealtime while babies get in their much needed beauty sleep.

BubbleBum is the world’s first inflatable car booster seat!

Wait… what? INFLATABLE BOOSTER? When I first saw the BubbleBum, I was confused. How in the heck could a bag of air keep my kid safe in the car? Well, long story short, the BubbleBum meets or exceeds all federal safety guidelines for children between 4 and 11 years old who weigh 40 to 80lbs. BubbleBum is safe to use in any vehicle apart from airplanes – which as you may know, have different requirements.

Holidays at my house are hectic this year!

In addition to the usual Christmas madness and family visits, we’re also MOVING.  There’s nothing like trying to hang decorations on moving boxes! So when I get a moment away from the packing tape, bubble wrap and Sharpies, I like to unwind and catch up on some celeb news and gossip. That way, when I’m Oprah-rich someday, maybe someone will spend their spare time staring at pictures of me doing totally normal stuff! ;)

Christmas! It’s practically here!

Like countless families, every year we anxiously await Santa. We make advent calendar angels to count down the days, we wait for the sound of jingle bells, and we always remember to leave out milk and cookies! But there’s really nothing like getting a personalized video from Saint Nick himself! That’s why we love Portable North Pole (PNP).
