This post is Sponsored by belVita but my opinions are 100% my own!

belVita is the best way for a busy mom to start off their day.  How do I know this?  Because I’m a busy mom and I love having a belVita soft baked breakfast biscuit for breakfast.

Busy Mom’s Start Their Day belVita Soft Baked Breakfast Biscuits

The girls began the new school year this week so it’s been a pretty crazy week.  The beginning of a school year is exciting, nerve wracking and fun for them.   And after we get through the first week, it’s easy peasy!

So what did I do after they were settled into school this week?  I sat outside and enjoyed a cup of coffee and a belVita Cinnamon Soft Baked Breakfast Biscuit one day and then a Banana Bread Soft Baked Breakfast Biscuit.   There are only 7g of fat per serving and it gives you 20% of your daily fiber amount.  The cinnamon breakfast biscuits are made with real cinnamon to give them natural flavoring.

And the banana bread breakfast biscuits are made with real bananas!  And you can totally taste them.  With only 190 calories and 9g of sugars, it’s not a bad way to start off the morning.

They are soft baked and they really are soft.  And you can see all the goodness just looking at them!  You don’t have to dunk this biscuit in your coffee to eat it.  It’s more like fresh baked!

Can you see how amazing that looks?   These are two of my favorite flavors and I love how easy they are to grab and go on the run.  Some mornings are so crazy, I don’t even get a chance to sit down and have my coffee before school starts.  This way I can grab one of these while I’m on my way out the door and know I’ll get a yummy and nutritious breakfast.

You can find belVita breakfast biscuits in stores now!

Shop FabKids for Fashionable Back To School Clothes at a Great Price!

We love to shop at FabKids which is good because my girls love to dress up.  If they could wear dresses every single day to every event, they’d be happy.  But the older one would prefer to wear sneakers with them.  That’s where I draw the line.  So we go for cute looks that aren’t dresses for days with sneakers.

FabKids has all that – dresses, cute looks and fashionable outfits for girls and boys (now!).   We’ve been back to school shopping and this month (August) FabKids has a nice selection of Back To School outfits for the little ones!

Shop FabKids for Fashionable Back To School Clothes

I’ve been buying from FabKids for a while and love their clothes. The quality is outstanding and the styles are fashionable.   Their new clothes this month for Back To School are really nice!  The dresses my daughter’s are wearing are both from FabKids, along with the leggings.

2014-08-24 18.39.37

First of all, the leggings are so soft and comfortable it’s like wearing pajamas!  And they stay that way even after washing them over and over again!   The colors don’t fad either!  Like I said, I’ve been buying their clothes for a while and the quality is amazing.

2014-08-24 18.53.56

These two dresses are definitely for warmer weather as the material is heavy.  But that’s perfect for once it starts to get cold here in New England.  I love the black and white hearts with the yellow leggings.  It’s the perfect style for her and she loves it.

2014-08-24 18.39.41

 

As you can see from the pictures, my girls love the outfits and my little one is happy to know that she’ll get to wear the other one when her sister grows out of it and it’s her size.  And I know it’ll look really great on her too.

Check out FabKids today.  You’ll get a 2 piece outfit for only $29.95!

Colgate-Lasting-White-Mouthwash

This post is Sponsored by Colgate. I am a compensated Colgate Ambassador but my opinions are 100% my own!

Colgate has another new product – Colgate Total Lasting White Mouthwash.   I love the Colgate Total line of products, especially their mouthwash.  I don’t like many Whiten Mouthwashes because of the flavor.  But this one wasn’t so bad as the Polar Freshmint really worked well and left my mouth feeling and smelling fresh.

Benefits of Colgate Total Lasting White Mouthwash

  • Helps protect against stains
  • Strengthens teeth
  • Remineralizes enamel
  • Helps prevent cavities
  • Fights tartar
  • Fights bad breath germs
  • No burn of alcohol

I’m excited to see how it helps the enamel on my teeth because the coffee I drink is killing my enamel but I don’t want to give it up!  I’m hoping my dentist will see a difference the next time I’m in for a cleaning.

Currently it only comes in Polar Freshmint™ flavor and you can find it on shelves now!

You can find more information on the Colgate website.

Colgate-Total-Prize-Pack

(1) Koupon Karen reader will win a Colgate Prize Package:

Give the Teachers A Back To School Gift from CVS {Giveaway}

Teacher-gift

This post is Sponsored by CVS/Pharmacy but my opinions are 100% my own!

My kids are off to school today!  It seems so early this year since it’s not even September.  I remember when I was a kid we always went back to school after Labor Day.  That doesn’t happen anymore.  But we are all ready.  I love having my girls home in the summer and we have a lot of fun and tons of family time.  But their school schedule is the one they are used to since they are in school 9 months out of the year, so after a couple of months off, we are all ready to go back to school.

And thankfully, my girls LOVE learning and they really love their school – as do I!  We moved into this neighborhood 3 summers ago so this is our 3rd year here.   I had no idea what a great school (and neighborhood) we were moving into.  We certainly lucked out.

We love our teachers and being part of the PTA, I get to do a lot of things for the teachers, the students and the families.  And I love doing it.   I’m very fortunate to have the time to give to the school.  The girls love that I am part of the PTA just as much as I do.  They love that I’m there a lot and in the know!  LOL

As the summer was coming to an end, the PTA president and I were talking about giving the teachers a “Welcome Back Gift” and also a “Survival Gift” with things that could help them in the beginning of the school year.    It was our way of showing them how much we appreciate and love them!

Earlier in the year, CVS helped us show our teachers how much we appreciated them with some fun goodies for them.  So when we were putting together these teacher gifts, I asked CVS if they could help us again and the were so excited to be a part of it!

Then sent us an assortment of Gold Emblem Abound products to include in the Survival Kits! Gold Emblem Abound is a line of snacks that are free from all artificial flavors and preservatives. Products range from trail mixes and granola bars to popcorn, fruit snacks and rice crisps. These are perfect to give the teachers some energy in the middle of the day, to get through the rest of the day!

Teachers-Gift

So when our teachers walked in this morning, each of them found a jar on their desk filled with Gold Emblem Abound gifts and other helpful items!  I’m sure they will love them.
