Back To School Sandwiches With @BJsWholesale #shoptheclub #ad

12 Oct

National Sandwich Month is coming to an end but that doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy sandwiches whenever we want. 

Back To School is approaching very fast and my kids know what type of lunches they want to take to school. When it comes to sandwiches they are only picky about the types of meat they eat.  

A morning breakfast sandwich could be bacon, egg and cheese or a grilled cheese sandwich but a deli sandwich has to be honey glazed or regular turkey. 

Since I’ll be preparing lunches for two kids I’m depending on BJ’s Wholesale to give me the great selection and meats, cheeses, breads, produce and condiments I need. 

My daughter who’s going to 4th grade will probably be the one who will use cookie cutters and make cute faces for her food. (As she did below) My son who is going to 8th grade just wants a meal. He’s not into all the cute lunches. 


I love pre-sliced cheeses. No cutting or slicing just take out of package, put on bread and that’s it. Wellsley  Farms has a variety of cheeses to choose from. Pepper Jack, Provolone, Sharp Cheddar and Muenster are on the top of our list.  


Bread for my kids school lunches have to be on rolls. Even though the kids love Wellsley Farms whole wheat bread and Sara Lee Artesano Bread they prefer rolls at school. My daughter switches up sometimes. BJ’s has a great selection of fresh bakery bread from rolls to whole wheat and even challah when I want to make French Toast for breakfast.

(Turkey and Pepper Jack Cheese on a roll)


Deli meat is Turkey like I mentioned earlier. You can purchased from the deli department by the pound or packaged deli meats. I love Wellsley Farms brand and I think I’m going back to Chicken Breast which is also good. I’ll still but Turkey but I want to eat chicken again. I also want to try buffalo chicken as well. I love spicy food. My kids also love spicy. 

So for back to school cold sandwiches hold better for my kids and when they get home they enjoy grilled cheese or panini sandwiches. No matter what type BJ’s has it all. Here are my grilled cheese and panini versions I made before. Grilled cheese doesn’t have to be just cheese I made a turkey, cheese, peppers and onions. The kids also loved the panini grilled cheese and the triple decker grilled cheese. 


Here’s a great recipe from BJ’s for a grilled Cuban panini sandwich: http://journal.bjs.com/recipes/grilled-cuban-panini

Glad OdorShield Kitchen/Trash Bags #ad

7 Oct

It’s been a great year and I don’t want it to end. However I will be going out with a bang and a new brand to work with. I recently attended a Mom’s Night Out event with Momtrends and met with five brands. One brand in particular that I really wanted to work with was Glad. I’ve been a fan for decades and love supporting brands that I use and trust. 


After winning a years supply of their products from the raffle which made my day I also found out my wish came true. I am proud to bring you the latest in kitchen/trash bags and food storage. 

Have you heard about Glad OdorShield and Febreze Freshness with Gain Original scent in their trash bags? My garbage never smelled better. That’s because there is no smell. The odor is blocked. It comes in 13 gallon size bags. Febreze and Gain two of my favorite products teaming up with Glad is a winner in my book. 


With the amount of deliveries we get and garbage we go through I need a big strong bag. I hate using small plastic shopping bags for garbage. One bag is great and it fits right in my incinerator, doesn’t rip and the strong drawstring makes closing and carrying easy.

I also love buying in bulk and my favorite wholesale club has plenty of Glad bags in stock. With holidays approaching you have to be prepared. Family and friends eat a lot so these OdorShield bags are perfect. Toys isn’t just delivered in December in my house. There’s so many boxes to throw out. 

These bags will make great gifts as well. My friends already put in a request. For more info visit here: Glad – http://www.glad.com/trash/kitchen/kitchen-odorshield-gain-original-scent/

Only Glad with Febreze neutralizes odors for up to 5 days – guaranteed.

Mom’s Night Out With Momtrends And Amazing Products From 5 Wonderful Brands #ad

5 Oct

Momtrends hosted a much needed Mom’s Night Out event in the penthouse down on Prince Street in NYC. Drinks greeted everyone as they walked in and we were led to the rooftop where the we took amazing pictures with gorgeous views. Inside the penthouse brands set up their tables with fun DIY projects to keep us busy for the evening. 


Before I headed to the stations I chowed down on Earth’s Best organic food, snacks and fruit cups. I tried the stuffed pretzels in two varieties: pizzas and cheddar cheese. The stuffed bites broccoli, kale and cheese were very good. The yogurt smoothies, snack bars and chocolate chip cookies were great too. Our gift bags had some as well that my kids enjoyed. 



For 30 years, parents have trusted Earth’s Best to provide organic nutrition for their babies. Now Earth’s Best is taking those same wholesome ingredients and offering nourishing meals for older kids.

Earth’s Best – http://www.EarthsBest.com

There was also catered food like steak, shrimp, chicken, vegetable summer rolls, mini sandwiches, stuffed bacon potatoes and small desserts. Everything was very delicious. 

I started at Quaker’s table as my family and I are big fans of their Quaker bars and oatmeal. We were asked to write on a board and finish this sentence: “If I had an extra hour in the morning I would……., Well like I tell everyone I’m up at 4am every morning so I can have those extra two hours in the morning to prepare and have me time before the kids are awaken. 

Ball Mason jars were handed out to make overnight oats that could help with that extra hour in the morning. No rushing to prepare breakfast because with the help of Quaker it’s so easy to make and healthy. I’ve been a oatmeal fan for years and always pack Quaker snacks for the kids lunches. They’re great anytime of the day. I also love adding different toppings to my oatmeal like fruit, honey and cinnamon. 


Overnight Oats are a quick, easy, delicious, breakfast:  1/2 cup milk, 1/2 cup oats, top with your favorite ingredients, refrigerate overnight, and enjoy in the morning!

Quaker- http://www.overnightoats.com

The next table was Philips Avent . At this station I was able to make a gift for a pregnant mama or a parent who could use a few pacifiers, bottles and sippy cup. Their bottles are BPA free and have a natural latch on nipple, anti-colic valve grows with your baby from breast feeding to cup. Love the pacifiers that look like animals. In between breastfeeding my kids I used Phillips Avent bottles and pacifiers and my kids enjoyed them. 

Philips Avent, the #1 reusable bottle brand and pacifier brand in the US, helps give babies a healthy start in life for a healthy future.

Philips Avent recognizes that feeding sets the stage for both emotional and physical growth, while ensuring that these Nourishing Moments are done right.

I headed to the Clorox station to decorate a container of Clorox disinfecting wipes. I chose the plaid design and added flowers and shimmer. It looked very springy. I know we are in the fall season but I don’t want summer to end. I also don’t want the flu season to begin and so I’m glad Clorox has been around for so long helping families kill 99.999% of bacteria. We trust in Clorox 100% as we are germaphobes and sterilize everything. I also enjoy sending the teachers loads of wipes for school as it seems kids get more colds from there. Stock up now and prepare ahead of time. 

Clorox – http://www.Clorox.com



The final station of the evening I absolutely had to check out was Glad. At this table you could make your own scented body lotions. This was amazing!! I’ve never made body lotion before and I got to choose scents like: lavender, coconut, vanilla and lemon. I chose the lavender and lemon combo. I added a few droplets of each scent to my lotion and the rest is history. It smelled wonderful. My kids even put some on when I got home. 



These scents are found in Glad kitchen trash bags. Keep your kitchen clean and neutralize odors with bags that combine Glad OdorShield and Febreze Freshness with Gain Original Scent. Only Glad with Febreze neutralizes odors for up to 5 days – guaranteed.

Provides continuous odor neutralization and leaves behind the fresh original scent of Gain
Reinforcing bands help add strength while saving plastic

Strong drawstring makes closing and carrying easy

Available in 13-gallon size

Glad has been a part of my family for decades and it’s good to see them bringing more to the table with their amazing products that also include food storage which I absolutely must have in my house at all times for school and work lunches, road trips and storing food in the refrigerator. 

Glad – http://www.glad.com/trash/kitchen/kitchen-odorshield-gain-original-scent/


There was a raffle and I am proud to say I won the biggest prize of the night from Glad. A years supply of products. I am very grateful and as a fan of Glad I will get great use out of everything. With a large household it’s good to have plenty of stock on kitchen bags and storage containers.

Save On Massages, Facials and Manicures With #Groupon #ad

29 Aug

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. All opinions expressed are mine 100% as always. 

I have a birthday and cruise coming up this year and I’m gonna treat myself to a facial and massage. I 100% sure I will also get a manicure and pedicure while I’m at it. Sure I could get those things done on my cruise but do they accept Groupon? I doubt it. I’ll be saving a lot more money getting these treats done before I walk on board.


Groupon has amazing deals going on for Swedish or deep tissue massages, facials and manis and pedis. On my off days it’s all about being pampered with a wash & set, massage, eyebrow threading and mani/pedi. 


My muscles can get very tight and a deep tissue massage won’t hurt me or my pockets. Groupon knows exactly what emails to send me around my location and I also have the app on my phone as well for fast access. 


If you click on this link you will see the deals I’m talking about in the “Health, Beauty & Wellness Groupons”) – https://www.groupon.com/local/massage

I’ve even tried acupuncture before and loved it. Might search for that as well and make it a whole day of spa treatments.

Extra Money In Your Pockets With #GrouponCoupons #ad  

25 Aug

This is a sponsored post. All opinions are mine.

I’ve been clipping coupons for years and there’s been times when I went shopping and forgot my coupons or they ripped accidentally (that happened recently) or they expired (the worst). Was there a easier way to carry coupons with me without ever forgetting them? 

When Groupon Coupons was introduced I was all over their site. I couldn’t believe all the coupons and promo codes from brands I regularly shop at. Coupons available when I need it and the best part on my phone. No losing, forgetting or accidentally ripping in my bag. Groupon Coupons goes wherever I go. 

I love the money I save at restaurants and my favorite retail shops like: 

JCPenney

Foot Locker

Nike

Macy’s

Bed Bath & Beyond

Target

Best Buy

Lands End

Starbucks 

Olive Garden

Panera Bread


I’ve been taking advantage of the awesome promo codes for back to school. Foot Locker has $20 off when you spend $120. My son can’t fit kid sneakers so his sneakers are in the men’s section. This coupon will come in handy. 

Land’s End has 25% off which is great for uniforms for my kids and free shipping when you spend $50. 

LL Bean has up to 50% off and free shipping. Their backpacks are great, very sturdy and are on sale.

I’ve even gotten a mani/pedi for $20. Yes!!

I also downloaded the Groupon App on my phone. Don’t miss out on all the savings available 24 hours a day.

National Park Foundation Celebrates At Brooklyn Bridge Park #FindYourPark #ad

24 Aug

National Parks Day celebrated their 100th birthday August 22nd at Brooklyn Bridge Park and we were invited to join in the fun and partake in all the activities. 

The National Park Foundation and National Park Service, Bill Nye and Questlove celebrated the 100th birthday of the National Park Service on Monday, August 22nd. In partnership with Brooklyn Bridge Park and One World Trade Center for the celebration, for the first time ever, New Yorkers worked together on a giant digital circuit board to control the color of the lights of One World Trade Center’s spire. The celebration featured music by Ramblin’ Dan, Questlove and a surprise musical performance.

Brooklyn Bridge Park is one of those parks that you could spend hours at because of the beautiful skylines, boats, restaurants and all the fun your kids can have there. Definitely a tourist stop and any picture you take there is beautiful. My son took some amazing shots. 

The first thing we did when we arrived was got free ice cream from The Brooklyn Ice Cream Factory. From 1:30-3:30 free cones or cups of ice cream were given. My kids and I enjoyed that very much. 




We met up with more bloggers and Melissa Musen Gerstein from (The Moms) to explore. My daughter made a sand necklace and took home coloring books. We also spun the wheel and answered trivia questions about history and won prizes. 



Next we took a group photo then headed to the entertainment. Ramblin Dan and the Freewheelin Band did a wonderful job with his songs keeping the kids and parents on their toes. I couldn’t stop singing and dancing. This band is a husband and wife duo. I would attend any event/party they are performing at. 


Park Rangers took visitors on tours and took pictures with those that requested. It was a beautiful day to just enjoy whatever was going on. Even celebrities came by to show their support. 

Here’s the schedule of events:
1:00 PM: Event opens to the public

1:30 PM – 3:30 PM: Free scoop of ice cream at Brooklyn Ice Cream Factory

2:00 PM – 2:45 PM: Ramblin’ Dan & the Freewheelin’ Band at the stage

There are over 400 national parks, even in big cities across the country. Join us in celebrating this historic moment and come #FindYourPark, o mejor dicho #EncuentraTuParque, in Brooklyn Bridge Park!

Networking & Reception


The Green Trade Project Office (GTPO), Taiwan’s leader in the promotion and integration of green products and services, was proud to announce that “Skynergy”, a self-developed, stand-alone photovoltaic power container, to be demonstrated at Liberty State Park in New Jersey, USA. This special demonstration showcased how ever-improving solar energy technologies, smart energy management and storage systems, cloud computing, and eco-friendly products are making zero-energy consumption possible.

Basically, Skynergy is an installation that has been created from a standard shipping container that will actually serve as a -bicycle station, which will be run by the US bicycle rental and tour company Bike And Roll. On July 12, 2016, a handover ceremony was held jointly with the GTPO; Bike And Roll; the Taiwan Economic and Cultural Office in New York; New Jersey Board of Public Utility, project partners UL and Asolar; and major manufacturing partners from Taiwan.

As a self-contained, self-sustaining power station, Skynergy is well suited to support disaster relief and humanitarian efforts, as well as various residential, retail, or recreational purposes, in places where power is unavailable. In addition, since it is housed in a standard shipping container, Skynergy is easy to transport via land, air, or sea.

Skynergy runs on high-power photovoltaic panels. For the NJ project, it features a photovoltaic module on the rooftop area of the container. These panels feed the station’s grid with electricity, with any excess electricity then stored in the onboard batteries, which are compact chambers of lithium-ion battery packs.

The station has also installed a hydrogen fuel cell to provide reliable backup power, in case of blackouts. Under normal conditions, the hydrogen fuel cell self-refuels, when a supply is maintained through the solar-power source. In total, this fuel cell can provide more than 8 hours of back-up power while operating at its maximum output.

Additionally, with the help of a smart-energy-management system, cloud-monitoring technologies have been implemented to help ease the burden on administrators who must face the challenge of overseeing the central control of scattered equipment. This helps to create fast and more efficient workflows between devices, which boosts productivity and saves energy.

In addition to consuming zero-energy from the grid, the station also features several innovative green products of note, such as an insulation coating; an energy-saving film for windows; solar bricks; a stone-like surface coating; floor mats made of recycled tires; and luminaries made of materials from discarded computers, among many others.

#ElenaOfAvalor Our Princess Party #Ad @DisneyChannel

1 Aug

Disclosure: This is part of a sponsored collaboration with DiMeMedia and Disney Channel. However, all opinions expressed are our own.

My daughter and I anxiously awaited for July 22nd to get here so we could see Disney’s first ever Latina Princess Elena Of Avalor premiere on the Disney Channel. We were even more excited to host a party and do an Unboxing video showing what goodies we were going to have at our party. If there one thing or two things we love it’s Disney and hosting parties. We have lots of boys in our family so I made the party special for my daughter because she is my princess. 


I’ve always taught my kids to be a leader not a follower because that’s who I am. I learned that from my mother, father and grandmother. I was taught in order to succeed in life I have to go for what I want. Back when my grandmother and father were alive they told me to respect my elders and pursue my interests. I wanted to be a chef because of them and I made sure I would be the best. I’m teaching my kids that now and that’s what they are striving for. With the help of me (their mother) and knowledge I instill in them their dreams will come true.  Their grandmother has also been a big help showing them the right path to take. I love how Princess Elena is a go-getter and wants to protect her castle and become Queen. She doesn’t let anything get in her way. In her mind she’s not a teenager anymore. 

My children love their grandmother very much and I’m glad she’s still a part of their lives.

My daughter said she liked watching Elena Of Avalor and wants to add the doll to her collection. She said she still want to be a chef and hope Elena gets to become a Queen. Our party was a success and my son even sat through it.

I also love to throw parties and break out the grill. The best place to get all the things I need for my parties are in my favorite one stop shopping store BJ’s Wholesale Club. I throw a celebration every year for my kids who get promoted to the next grade or are graduating. I know I’m getting my money’s worth when I walk into BJ’s because bulk is what I need and I go in with my list and coupons ready to shop till I drop. 

My son is being promoted to the 8th grade and my daughter is being promoted to 4th grade. This time I decided to let BJ’s do the party planning for me. The party platters are great. I just put in an order and that’s it. Easy breezy.

 · BJ’s is also currently offering a 15 month membership for $40 now through Sunday, July 3 plus a coupon book with more than $2,000 worth of savings.

I also carry free membership coupons in my purse incase someone could use one. That happened to me before and I gave a husband and wife a free coupon to join. They were so happy.
