Free Music Downloads from The Voice & Clear


Shows that focus on music competitions are just fun. The whole family can get into it, with everyone picking and rooting for their favorites. And then you go to work the next day and everyone is talking about who was elimated or who SHOULD have been eliminated. Around here, The Voice is one of our favorite shows.  The judges obviously make this show so entertaining - and I'm so excited for when Gwen Stefani temporarily takes over for Christina Aguilera next season. If you're a fan of The Voice, like me, you'll love this promotion going on along with CLEAR & The Voice at Rite Aid:  From now until July 31, 2014 when you buy any CLEAR SCALP & HAIR THERAPY™ at Rite Aid,  you will get 2 free song downloads from your favorite The Voice performers.

Family Memories on the Water | Discover Boating

#Sponsored #MC

I participated in an Ambassador Program on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Discover Boating. I received a promotional item to thank me for my participation. We just returned from a great summer trip in Cape Cod, MA - and this was our view daily. The boats anchored gave way to great conversation about how we would love to own our own boat.  At the beginning of the summer, I shared with you how I am an ambassador for Discover Boating and how we are considering purchasing a summer home and boat. The memories that can be created on the water is undeniable - as both my husband and I have them from our youth - he on his family's lake house and me on the NJ shore in my grandfather's boat. We want to give our children the same memories. We already head to New England each summer for vacation and it seems natural to have a home and boat there. We love getting out on the water in the waters around Newport, RI when we visit there and we love boating between Cape Cod and Martha's ... [read more]

Sun Protection Tips for Kids

Coppertone Skin Protection

Summer is in full-swing - and hopefully, you've been making sure your family is protected from the sun. Being on the beach all day, every day on our vacation last week was a blast, but the hot sun beating down on the kids all day had me worried. We did our best to create shade to get them out of the sun when needed, wore hats, sunglasses, rashguards and used Coppertone products. Everyone went home from the beach each day, happy and burn-free. Why is sun protection so important? Here are some facts:  1. Did you know that just ONE blistering sunburn in childhood can increase the chance of developing skin cancer later in life? 2. The skin around children's eyes is more delicate and vulnerable to UV rays than that of adults. 3. Dark skinned individuals, such as African-Americans or Hispanics, are vulnerable to UV Rays Starting early in life to show children the importance of sun protection is important. I don't just apply sunscreen to my kids. I apply it to myself first - and when ... [read more]
