National Geographic Kids: Explore the Outdoors (Review & Giveaway)


The weather is getting warmer and the days are getting longer!  It's finally time to shake off those winter blues and celebrate that summer is right around the corner!  My kids will be on summer vacation in three weeks and we can't wait to get outside and enjoy all that it has to offer.  Trust me... they will NOT be sitting on the couch playing video games all summer long!

I've always encouraged my children to look at books and read, even when they were toddlers.  Books let their imaginations run free and take them to places unknown.  Books also fill their minds with knowledge and facts that will fuel them for life!


National Geographic Children's Books is debuting three new books that are perfect for curing that cabin fever and inspiring youngsters to get outside and enjoy the great outdoors.

The Butt Buoy ~ Stand Out Above the Rest of the Boaters on the Lake. No Ifs, Ands or Butts!

It's time to go "bottoms up" on the lake this summer with the hilarious Butt Buoy! Who ever thought of this product was clever and had a great sense of humor! I know that when I first saw the Butt Buoy it made me laugh out loud!


This is a real usable marker buoy, made just like a high quality marker or anchor buoy, but with the benefit of having everyone laugh as they walk by your boat.  It looks like a hot girl diving next to your boat, and is sure to get attention at the lake or marina.  This buoy is ideal for personal watercraft, waterski boats, jetskis, or other small boats

The Butt Buoy is realistic and durable. The bikini bottom is cloth and can be removed and replaced with another to fit any mood, celebration, or holiday! When you purchase a novelty Butt Buoy, you can choose from 1 of 9 bikini choices; some are fun print, others are solid colors.

I know that our new boat buoy is going to be the "butt" of all jokes on the lake this summer, but it's also going to turn heads and make people point and laugh, too!

TripleBooster: Car Cell Phone Charger ~ Review


We are a family with a teenager and a tween that spends a lot of time traveling for sports and leisure.  Of course, we all have our phones and electronics in the vehicle with us and it never fails... more than one usually needs to be charged at the same time!


I was recently sent a TripleBooster Car Cell Phone Charger for review.  It conveniently comes with 3 USB cables for the iPhone 4/5/6, Android, PSP,Camera, etc...  making it the perfect travel accessory for our family! 

In addition to charging really quickly, it has has 3 ports so you can charge 3 electronics at once which is great when you are traveling!  I also love the cloth bag it came with.  It makes it easy to store the cables in while they are not being used so they don't get lost!

Strong Expandable Garden Hose Set ~ The Perfect Hose for all of Your Needs!


It never fails... every single time I go to mow the lawn, I have to role up at least two or three garden hoses.  It seems like everywhere I look during the spring and summer months - there is a garden hose strung out across the yard.

I was recently introduced to an amazing expandable garden hose that easily compacts itself and will fit inside a small bucket!  The Gardspo garden hose is just the thing I have been looking for!


My favorite features of the Gardspo expandable water hose are:

Expands 3 times with water pressure
Weighs 5 times less the traditional garden hose
Never Kinks, Twists or Tangles
Easy to store in small places
I also love that this garden hose is easy to use and pull across the lawn to where it's needed!  We have dogs and cows that need to be watered, trees, flowers and a garden, and a kiddie pool.  Oh, and let's not forget the lawn! So, our hoses get a lot of use when it's hot outside!

Purex Plus Clorox 2 Detergent: Works on Tough Stains! (Review & Giveaway)

The Purex® brand provided me with a sample of Purex® plus Clorox 2® detergent in exchange for a product review. However all the opinions expressed here are my own.


Laundry is a never ending household chore... No matter how many times I check or how careful I am, sometimes clothes go into the wash without being treated for stains.  As a result, having a laundry detergent that I can count on is super important.  Especially because I want my family's clothes to be clean, stain free, and last as long as possible!

As a Social Insider, I am often given the inside scoop on great new products and promotions!  In addition, I'm able to test and review products before they even become available in stores! As an added bonus, I get to share the excitement with my readers by offering a giveaway for free product coupons.  This makes it a win-win situation for all of us.  Don't you agree?  My latest kit contained the NEW Purex plus Clorox 2 laundry detergent.


The New Purex plus Clorox 2 detergent is formulated to remove the toughest stains. It works on 100 stains, is safe for colors, bleach free, and is available in 2 great scents: Original Fresh & Sunny Linen.
