My Old Navy Spring Haul

My Old Navy Spring Haul  via www.productreviewmom.com
Makeup: MAC and Lip: Lush Color Passionate



Hey Yall!  I know it’s been ages since I last did a haul post, so it’s long overdue to show you some of my goodies I gotten for myself from Old Navy.


A few weeks ago when my girls and I went to an Easter Bunnyevent and seen the movie Home, we did some spring clothes shopping.  The clothes shopping was supposed to be just for the girls but I couldn’t resist I had to get myself some outfits too to freshen up my wardrobe.


I’m unsure what you would call my signature style, I’m assuming casual, yet chic.  Since I’m always on the go somewhere I always want to make sure I’m comfortable but not looking frumpy.


I don’t really shop at many clothing stores.  You’ll usually find me in either Old Navy or New York and Company.  But I use to not shop at Old Navy several years back because I thought their clothing was a bit boring and looked really baggy on me, their clothes gave my body no type of shape.  I guess after having kids and my body becoming curvier Old Navy started to look more appealing on me.    I like how Old Navy's clothing is reasonably priced but you do have to shop smart by going during the time they have sales and coupons.  I found myself spending more than I wanted during this shopping trip since their sale wasn't that great during that time.

  

I use to dress up business casual due to my job since it's a business consulting firm, but ever since the dress code has changed to just casual I don’t really dress up anymore and I'm glad we don't have to dress that way.


So, the outfits I gotten from Old Navy are a couple of tunics which is my go-to favorite kind of shirts, a floral skirt, a jean dress that should be in everyone’s wardrobe, a couple of pair of shorts, white cardigan sweater, a graphic t-shirt, and a see-through polka dot flowy blouse.  I wasn't really liking my shorts being a bit long due to my height (I'm 5'3), to me it made me feel shorter but at the time of purchase I didn't realize the shorts I got was longer than I usually get.  I'm still going to keep them because it's comfortable.  



I’m not done with my clothes shopping for spring yet because I need to add more dresses so I’ll be making a trip or ordering online from New York and Company.


Here are the clothing I gotten for myself from Old Navy:

So yall, which outfit do you think looks best on me?  Also should I continue to do haul posts?

Bing Rewards – One of the Many Ways to Earn Free Stuff Online #ad

Bing Rewards – One of the Many Ways to Earn Free Stuff Online #ad  via www.productreviewmom.com
 Thank you Bing Rewards for sponsoring today's post!  All opinions are my own.


Are you looking for another avenue to bring in some free stuff without doing a lot of work? Bing Rewards might just be what you are looking for. They allow you to earn credits when you search on Bing or try new features from Bing and Microsoft.  You do searches on the Internet every day anyway so this is the perfect free rewards program to join.




How You Earn


Bing Rewards can be redeemed by either selecting to cash out in the Shopping & Dining department, the gaming department or you can donate your rewards to your favorite charity. For more fun, they launch a sweepstakes campaign every seven to eight weeks. You can enter for a chance to win prizes such as gift cards, tablets, and game systems. Some members have even won trips to places such as the Super Bowl!

How Bing Rewards Works

Bing Rewards believes that internet surfers should be rewarded for searching the web. This company is free to sign up for, which means you are actually receiving 100% free products. Once you have enough credits you can cash them out for things that you want. If you sign up with an already established Microsoft account, they provide you with a 20 CREDIT BONUS.
Overall, you just have to make sure that whenever you are searching for something that you are logged into the system so you are rewarded. You can learn more about Bing Rewards by clicking here.




Thoughts on Bing Rewards

I have been with Bing Rewards for years but never cashed out with them because I like for my points to collect to redeem a great gift card.  At this time I have 484 credits and I have been really eyeing that Starbucks gift card because I know I can put it to good use by getting my favorite green tea frappe.

Bing Rewards also has a fantastic program that is called “Bing in the Classroom”. With this program, classrooms have the option to win free Surface tablets and digital literacy lesson plans. I love this concept because it shows that Microsoft is about making sure our children get an education.



If you have children in school, you can donate your credits to your child’s school to help them have a chance at receiving free Microsoft Surface tablets.



I have seen many individuals talk about cashing out through Bing Rewards or winning their sweepstakes online. Therefore, despite the fact that I have never cashed out I do feel this is a website to check out. Basically, they want to reward you for things that you are already doing daily.



Are you a Bing Rewards member? What has been your experience?

Keeping Your Kids Healthy: Six Tips To Keep Illness Away In Your Home

Keeping Your Kids Healthy: Six Tips To Keep Illness Away In Your Home  via www.productreviewmom.com
 Today I have special guest Anita Ginsburg, a freelance writer sharing tips to keep your kids healthy.
 

Keeping the kids healthy is an important task that sometimes seems overwhelming. When it comes to contagious sickness, kids are frequent carriers and transmitters for many illnesses. There are several steps parents can take to avoid the transmission of sickness as well as other diseases in children.


    1. Washing Hands

Most people are aware of the importance of washing hands, but this is even more necessary for children. In a 2013 KidsHealth survey of school nurses, 28 percent listed hand washing as the most important way parents can keep their kids healthy during the school year. This logic also applies during summer break as regular hand washing decreases the germs that children carry around from place to place or to other people. It is also important to remind kids to keep their hands away from the mouth and eyes as these are places where germs can easily infiltrate the body.


    1. Getting Rid Of Germs

Preventing surface germs and other contact from occurring should always be a top priority. Toys should be sanitized on a regular basis, and special care should be given to those toys that are shared with other kids from outside the home. These items may carry additional germs from other kids and even those with whom they come in contact. Immediately cleaning up any bodily fluids from sickness or injury is important as is cleaning spills from preparing food. Wipe down surfaces before and after preparing food.


    1. Regular Physical Exams

Visiting the physician regularly is an important aspect of maintaining health. It is necessary to detect or predict health conditions that can be problematic later in life, but it is also useful for finding contagious pathogens that children may carry or to which they may become susceptible. Stopping such agents before they show symptoms or before they pass from one child to another is necessary to keep illnesses at bay.


    1. Proper Dental Care

Regular dental check-ups are an essential part of total health for everyone, but they are especially important for kids. It is much better to start proper oral hygiene habits in youth to ensure such patterns remain in adulthood. Poor oral hygiene during childhood may lead to excessive damage caused by the decay of cavities. This affects the child's ability to eat properly, in addition to the potential for pain and expensive treatments down the line. If decayed teeth are neglected for long periods, it may lead to constant infections in the mouth and resulting cardiovascular damage, according to www.boisedentist.net.


    1. Sharing With Discretion

Children are usually taught to be considerate and share their belongings when necessary, but this should be avoided when it comes to contact with items that go in the mouth. Things such as water bottles, cups, food or even pacifiers should be kept to each individual. Kids should be discouraged from sharing such items with others outside the home as well as doing so may expose them to germs that make them and family members ill.


    1. Sleeping

Sleep is needed to restore the body and repair damage that may have been done over the day. It is also an important part of development during youth. Missing out on adequate sleep can make children more vulnerable to contagious illnesses as well as disease. School-age children do best with 10 to 11 hours of sleep per day, so this may require additional naps or limiting television or computer time.


No parent can totally prevent their children from getting sick, but there are certainly ways to reduce the chances of family members falling ill. Paying close attention to the way kids interact with their environment and others can help pinpoint lifestyle errors that facilitate illness.

Georgia Aquarium Spring Break Travel Tips

Georgia Aquarium Spring Break Travel Tips  via www.productreviewmom.com
Michelle at the Georgia Aquarium

Hey yall!  The Georgia Aquarium is back taking over my blog again to share more Spring Break travel tips!  Make sure to check out their other Spring Break tips.


1. Engage your family with Aquarium education before your trip


-    Georgia Aquarium’s website is a great place to start getting excited about an upcoming visit.

Harness that excitement with your family and make it a learning experience before your visit by visiting Georgia Aquarium’s website and exploring the Animal Guide.


2. Use tools to plan.


-    Build your Georgia Aquarium experience beforehand to maximize your time at the attraction.

The Aquarium’s online ticket page helps you search the experiences the Aquarium has to offer and make ticket, parking and add-on program purchases in advance to make planning your visit a seamless process.


3. Take tips from tourism experts on when to visit.


-    Georgia Aquarium Insider Tips:
a.    Pay for parking online ahead of time.
b Visit early or late in the day to avoid the busiest times.
c.    Plan your visit around free activities offered throughout the day:

i.   AT&T Dolphin Tales: Choose your seats no later than 20-30 minutes before the show starts. The best seats in the house are at the top of the lower half section.
ii.   Interactive Dive Shows: Tropical Diver and Ocean Voyager galleries have divers that answer visitor’s questions while underwater. Dive show times can be found on screens located at the entrance of each gallery.
iii.   Animal Feedings: Check out the computer screens outside each gallery with daily feeding times for marquee animals.
iv Deepo’s 3D Wondershow: See Deepo’s 3D Wondershow in the Georgia Aquarium 4D Theatre! Shows are held multiple times throughout the day and included in Georgia Aquarium admission.


4. Capture the best and most memorable moments.


-    A visit to Georgia Aquarium gives families the chance to learn about aquatic life together, creating an impactful experience that will last a lifetime.

-    Give technology a break and live in the moment. You can still manage to capture the memories
by taking fewer, but more impactful photos. Georgia Aquarium provides a beautiful backdrop for photos that are perfect to help your social network follow along on your trip!

o One For the Grandparents: the Pacific Barrier Reef Window inside the Tropical Diver
gallery has great lighting and livens up your photo with colorful fish.

Look Where I Am!: Near the Baker Street entrance, just near the newspaper stand, you can capture the full Georgia Aquarium façade.

The Perfect Silhouette: It is no surprise Ocean Voyager provides an artistic backdrop for a photo; many movies have chosen this gallery to feature in their films.

Just Another Fish in the Sea: Many of the exhibits feature windows where children can get up close and almost look as if they are inside with some of their favorite animals. Try making a scary face inside the River Scout tunnel!

o Bird’s Eye View: Make a pit stop after you exit Cold Water Quest to capture the World’s Most Magical Aquarium from a second floor vantage point.


5. Make the most of family time.


-    Make the most of your visit by researching which must-see locations are close to the Aquarium.  Planning ahead will help minimize parking fees and reduce travel time.

-    Conveniently located in downtown Atlanta, Georgia Aquarium is the perfect starting point for a day filled with family fun. There are 7 attractions and 17 restaurants all within a 12-minute walk from the front door of Georgia Aquarium.









I hope you have found these tips useful!  Make sure to plan a visit to the Georgia Aquarium!
