8 is Great!

“I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Carter’s. I received a complimentary gift card to facilitate my review and thank me for my participation.”

My Gabi is a girl after my own heart. When it comes to shopping oh she is all in. She is a true girlie girl and when I told her we were going to go shopping just for her at one of our favorite places to shop I'm pretty sure our neighbors heard her squeals! 

We got to go shopping at Carter's. I always have stated my love for the store as it is one I trust for quality and amazing value.  I have shopped for all 4 of my kids there. I loved it even more because it was the only place I was able to find clothing for our Isabel when she was in the NICU  as she was our tiny preemie born at 27 weeks and I've been able continue to dress her with the cute outfits as she has grown. 

I just found out that the new styles that will become available will go up to size eight which is so exciting and making it even more fun to shop at Carter's! 

Knowing I can shop for both my girls at a place where I'll get cute,comfortable and affordable clothing is a bonus for this mom! (and you!)

 Today I am going to share the fun I had w/my awesome 8 year old girlie. We headed out to our local Carter's location. 




I was so excited to see that there was an awesome sale going on, because you know a sale means more clothes to squeal over! My girl was way top happy to carry her bag home and almost didn't let me take a picture as she was in a hurry to try everything out!





 They are currently running the following awesome sale:


Bright Now Sale (40% off Entire Store) 7/14 – 8/4
 
It is the perfect time to stock up on new fall arrivals which is a wonderful thing to do now and grab some awesome deals because before we know it the chilly weather will be upon us!

  We also saw some $5 and up doorbusters like $5 baby short sleeve tees & shorts, $6 toddler/big) of course mama had to look at the sales for her other baby girl. They also had  $6 Pants, $6 Leggings $6 Slogans & $12 Hoodies (Entire Event) Which totally made me and my girlie squeal as we have a thing for leggings and tees.



Are you curious to see what we got ?! Well let us show you!  

I let Gabi pick out what she wanted so this is ALL her. She loved the cute and colorful tees they had and since she IS "Totally Awesome" of course she had to pick up this tee which she paired up with a modern and sassy pair of leggings which had a leopard print on them.


She loved this outfit so much and told me it  felt super comfy and it was all about fun. She had to jump for joy to prove it to me!


Then she picked out what I must say was my most FAVORITE of her outfits that we purchased. I so wish they had this in my size. She picked it because of the flowers and navy color and I agreed it was just perfect for her.


. Do you not LOVE this! OH I could not even stop saying how beautiful my girl looked! It is just so fresh and happy isn't it? 

She then decided to pick up some pajamas because she told me these would be perfect for when  she gets home from school to get back into comfy pjs  is a must to get homework done Ha!  

 I must say Carter PJ's are the BEST. They even look like outfits..and hmm shhhh truth be told my girls have gone out to quick supermarket trips in them and nobody have been the wiser.

 Well the ones she picked out might give her away but never the less they were super soft and I thought man why can't these be in my size yet again. I'm pretty sure these helped get sweeter dreams.



I personally have been getting the girls their Christmas pajamas the past two years at Carter's so they can match and can't wait again to do it this year. Here are a few links to help you keep up to date with what Carters has in store for your kids. You'll be happy you did!

Adventures with The Stars...Welll Sort Of

Why is it that Summer is flying by so quickly? I say we all get a do over don't you agree? This year the kids actually go back to school the earliest they have ever gone back making it even more bitter sweet. In order to stretch the Summer I looked about what else could we do this to make some more awesome memories.

 On my kids bucket list I saw they were interested in going to Madame Tussads museum and I checked out some info the one that is located in the City. This is what I found :



 There are millions of things to see and do in New York City, but there is only one place where you can get up close with over 200 incredible wax figures of celebrities, historical icons, sports legends and more. From Marilyn Monroe to Barack Obama to Lady Gaga to Carmelo Anthony, there is a star for everyone!


I saw that they even have Taylor Swift and I SO know my 8 year girlie is gonna love posing with her. It is going to be so much fun!  One that I am really excited to pose with is to see Iron Man! Especially with all the Marvel movies that have come out I know that I wouldn't be the only one in my family who shall be waiting to check him out.


Also to check out is the thrilling Marvel Super Heroes 4D theater featuring Marvel's legendary Super Heroes. To check out what else is there to see visit nycwax.com for more information.


If you are in New York and would like to visit Madame Tussauds here is a 15% off to all access tickets then use THIS coupon to enjoy. Valid for up to 8 people.

I really can't wait to go with the family and report back our adventure. So how about you? What adventures have you taken this Summer with your family?





*Disclaimer I will receive tickets in return for my posts about Madame Tussauds but all my views and opinions are mine. *

All You Need Is 10 Minutes

I don't know about you but I am so happy the weekend has finally arrived. Today I wanted to share one of my favorite workouts that I am incorporated into my workout routines.


This is something I do when I'm short on time and I know I wouldn't be able to do a regular routine. You can't tell me you don't have 10 minutes. I bet you've been scrolling through the interent longer then 10 mintues you could have been done by now. So what are you waiting for...


Drop and give me those 10 minutes. Promise you'll be happy you did!



-Stretch for 3 minutes
-25 jumping Jacks
-15 Burpees
-10 Push ups (reg or on knees)
-25 mountain climbers
-Walk it out for 2 minutes
-30 second Plank

Now after you are done and have caught your breathe admit it.. you know you want to do it again and if you do it 3x you just did a 30 minute workout!
Start out slow and take breaks in between and work your way up to being able to do it 3 times. I do this 3 times a week. YES that's it. TRUST me  it works!

One more thing cause I laugh and think this every time I am drenched from a workout I've just completed. Now you'll think it too!
