Staying Hydrated With DripDrop #DrinkDripDrop

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post in which I received complimentary product and compensation from SheSpeaks/DripDrop.

Did you know that dehydration affects nearly 75% of Americans?  Adults and children included. Staying hydrated is important for everyone, especially when you are active throughout the day. Whether you are taking a jog through the park, chasing your kids around the house, or recovering from a stomach bug- you need to replenish your body's fluids. Typically a big glass of water is always a thirst quencher BUT it can be boring on its own. After all, water is just that... water. It doesn't have to be boring though. This is where a new revolutionary product, DripDrop, changes the concept of that plain glass of H2O.

Cotton Candy Cobweb Cupcakes

With Halloween about two weeks away I am thrilled to say that costumes have been purchased, treat bags have been assembled for school, decorations are up and the giant cauldron by the front door is full to the rim with CANDY! This year was painless. Since I ordered Toodie's costume and accessories online I was able to avoid the crazy crowds, the worst part of any holiday. Of course I decided to use the saved timed and energy to make another treat in the kitchen this weekend, Cotton Candy Cobweb Cupcakes. I couldn't help myself given the next two weeks are busy ones. This may be the last yummy treat I make before the haunted holiday arrives!

5 Must Have Hair Products For Kids + Earn Rewards With Suave Family Perks

I have a confession. I strongly dislike HATE doing my daughter's hair. I try, I really do... but I'm just not very good at it. You would think after spending many years doing my own hair I would have somehow mastered the common pony tail and maybe even a braid here and there. When I found out I was having a little girl I couldn't wait for the frilly dresses, embellished shoes, and adorable hairstyles with coordinating accessories. Well here we are five years later and the adorable hairstyle fantasy just isn't happening. I am lucky if I get a comb through it without a loud scream of terror.

It's no mystery that Halloween is high on the list when it comes to my favorite holidays. Last month I got a head start and began sharing a few of my ghoulish recipes to get into the spirit. As we approach the spooky day of celebration my gears have been locked into creative mode and there has been quite a bit of hocus pocus going on in the kitchen. As much as I enjoy nibbling on Halloween candy before and after the big day, it has become a staple ingredient in my creations lately. These Lumpy Bumpy Monster Candy Cupcakes bring the best of my two favorite treats together- cake and candy. Using the Wonka Mix Ups I was able to bring those fun lumpy bumpy creatures to life!
