Organic Slammers Smoothies Superfood Snacks Make The Perfect Pick Me Up During Holiday Travels #Sponsored
***Disclosure: I received complimentary samples to facilitate my review. No other compensation was provided, and all opinions are 100% honest and have not been influenced in any way.***
Now that Christmas is only a couple of weeks away, lots of families are getting ready to do some traveling. Whether it's by plane, train, or automobile, this is the time of year that we hit the road to spend quality time with family and friends.
Of course with Holidays comes food. Loads and loads of glorious food. Not all of this food is healthy, mind you. Pies, cookies, cakes, and other treats are abundant. Sure, I let my kids indulge once we get to our destination. I just make sure that the snacks we pack for the road are a bit more forgiving and packed with nutrition. Kids don't always want "healthy snacks". Unless, of course, they taste amazing.
Thankfully, I have some tricks up my sleeve. Or, in my purse, to be exact. I have Slammers SuperFood Smoothies at the ready for any time my kiddos need a snack while we're out and about.
Slammers are fun, portable fruit smoothie pouches that pack an extra nutritious punch. These are made from SuperFoods and other organic fruits. The Slammers Protein+ also have a whopping 7g of protein per serving. They are also an excellent source of Vitamin C. These come in mouthwatering flavors that kids adore like Watermelon Kiwi Burst and Pomegranate Grape Crush. Each pouch contains a full serving of fruit, too.
What I love most about Slammers, other than the obvious convenience factor, is the fact that these contain absolutely nothing artificial. That's right! These babies are organic, which means all your kids will be inhaling is pure, delicious fruit. No GMO's, no artificial dyes or flavors, no preservatives....Just fruits and veggies.

When my oldest son was small, we lived in a home that had an inground pool. I was always so afraid that he'd somehow find his way outside and something awful would happen. We alleviated these fears by investing in safety gates and alarms.We’ve learned to make our homes childproof, from keeping household products and medicines out of our children’s reach and site to inspecting toys and installing safety gates. Because there’s nothing like the peace of mind of knowing our loved ones are safe and sound.This holiday season think about MagnaLatch ALERT as the perfect gift for friends and family, a safety gift that keeps on giving!
Your family’s safety is also the top priority at D&D Technologies, the makers of the top-selling MagnaLatch®system which has set the standard for child safety gate latches for more than 25 years. D&D Technologies recently introduced the award-winning MagnaLatch® ALERT, the world’s first and only combined gate latch and electronic alarm system, offering the ultimate security and protection for gates around swimming pools, homes, childcare centers, schools andwherever safety is critical.
How it Works: If the latch is opened and/or gate is left unlatched, the new visual alarm gives a warning with flashing LED lights, while the audible alarm beeps and turns into a full alarm after 15 seconds.
In addition to these new features, MagnaLatch ALERT offers: o NEW Rekeyable security lock: The 6-pin lock cylinder can be rekeyed, by a locksmith, to match other locks around the home. o NEW Visible Lock Indicator: Shows you at a glance whether MagnaLatch ALERT is locked or unlocked. o NEW Disarm Feature: The touch-sensor disarm feature allows an adult to temporarily disarm the ALERT for up to 15 minutes.Feature not to be used on pool or safety gates. o NEW Safe, ergonomic lift knob: With its new design, the lift knob is now more conveniently shaped and child resistant than ever. MagnaLatch ALERT is available in two models: the Top Pull and the Vertical Pull. Best of all both gate latches are made from industrial strength polymers, aluminum and stainless steel that eliminate rusting and jamming, making it the perfect choice for any outdoor space where safety is a must. While the MagnaLatch ALERT Top Pull model is ideal for all child safety or pool applications, the shorter Vertical Pull model offers protection on pet security and general-purpose gates around the home and garden. MagnaLatch ALERT can be easily installed in minutes without the need for special tools, screws or wiring. To find out more about this fantastic product make sure andvisit them here.

Anyone who knows me is well aware of the fact that I am a beauty junkie. Sure, I spend the vast majority of the time in yoga pants with my hair up in a messy bun.....But I DO clean up quite nicely, and love finding an excuse to do so. The Holiday season gives me just that! With all the gatherings and get togethers, I definitely step up my beauty game this time of year!
Recently, I learned about a brand of makeup I'd never heard of before. Pixi Beauty, created by makeup artist, Petra Strand, offers a wide variety of cosmetics that are long-lasting, natural looking, and sure to give you that special "glow".

Do you have any hard-core gamers in your life? I sure do. My husband is basically a 38 year old "big kid", and he loves nothing more than playing a few video games to unwind after a long day. His favorites tend to be games like Assassin's Creed, Final Fantasy, and HALO.
We have another gamer in the house, and it might not be who you'd expect. Sure, we ALL love gaming. My teen enjoys playing on occasion, and so does my youngest son. But the biggest gamer in the house? It would HAVE to be my soon-to-be 6 year old daughter.
Sophie lives, eats, and breathes gaming. She is constantly playing games on her tablets, laptop, the XBOX 360, or the Wii. (What she doesn't know is that Mommy just won an XBOX ONE with Kinect!) Anyway, Sophie loves watching gaming videos on YouTube, too. Yes, this child will seriously sit and watch other people play video games for hours on end. She actually prefers this to things you'd expect a 5 year old girl to enjoy, like cartoons and princess movies.
So, naturally, we will be giving loads of gaming gifts this Christmas. GameStop is our go-to place for games, and they have all of the hottest gifts for the gamers in your life. My husband is actually drooling over this PS4 STAR WARS Battlefront 500GB Bundle. Can't say I blame him. This is at the top of many wish lists, from what I hear!

Operation Christmas for Erin Here's How YOU Can Help #BFF #Transplant #OrganDonation #ErinsTransplantJourney
I'd like to introduce you to my best friend, Erin. I have blogged about her before, but a lot has changed since then!
Erin is 33, and is currently in the hospital awaiting a heart and liver transplant. (She is listed with UNOS as a 1B, but is expected to be bumped to a 1A, which is top priority, any day now.)
Erin was born with several complex congenital heart defects, or CHDs, and the Fontan surgery that saved her life as a child has caused her internal pressures to go nuts, and this, over many years, has begun destroying her liver.
This is something doctors didn't realize would happen 20+ years ago when they started performing this surgery. They are just starting to see the long term effects of the Fontan NOW, and unfortunately, my best friend is among the first to experience life-threatening complications.
Erin is currently in advanced stages of heart and liver failure, so the doctors have told her it's no longer safe to be home. She will be living in the hospital until transplant, which could be months away. There is no absolute waiting time to receive donor organs, as donors do not typically plan their own passing. Organs become available whenever they do, so this means people like my friend are playing a waiting game, while praying they can hold on long enough......
Erin is a beautiful human being. She is kind, compassionate, and worries about others more than she does herself most of the time. Spending the Holidays in the hospital is going to be VERY difficult for her. She is away from her husband, as well as her dog, Zeus. Her mother is there with her, thank God, but still...This time of year is sure to be tough on her. If anyone is sending out Christmas cards and has an extra to spare, please consider sending one to her.
She can receive mail, and I know that it would mean a lot to her. Mail can be sent to:
Gift of Life Family House
C/O Jeff, Crystal, and Erin Grimm (Room 404)
401 Callowhill Street
Philadelphia, PA 19123
Along with cards, other things that may be helpful to her family during this difficult time are:
Thanks so much! If you have any questions, please let me know.
Also, Erin does have a Facebook page chronicling her journey. Just search "Erin's Transplant Journey" and you can learn all about what she is facing right now.
She also has a fundraising site through HelpHopeLIVE. This site is similar to a GoFundMe, but with accountability. Funds raised are tax-deductible, and this service ensures that all funds raised go towards medically-related costs.
Thanks in advance to anyone willing to help! I know this is super scary for my friend, and I am hoping to bring some happiness to her this Holiday season!
Get your light-saber ready!
