Fudgy Double Chocolate Ice Cream Cookie Trifle #PlatefullCoOp

Disclosure: The information and prize pack have been provided by General Mills through Platefull Co-Op.

I've developed a patten over the past month and I have noticed that Wednesdays are the appointed day of the week in which I get my bake on. It may be because it's the only day of the week when I have the house to myself without any distractions or interruptions. That means extra time to get in touch with my sweet side, the one that involves a spatula and cookie dough. I was recently sent a big box of goodies that included a variety of Immaculate Baking products. If you aren't familiar with this company you should probably know the basics and why they stand out from the others.

Feu de L’eau: Luxurious Handmade Candles In Summer Scents

Regardless of what season it is I love to surround myself with scents that make me feel happy. Scent is a powerful thing and it amazes me how it can change my mood within minutes. This is why I have several candles in my own, floating around in different rooms with various but similar scents lit throughout the day.

Are you looking to get back into the swing of things before school starts? During the Summer we sometimes stray away from our usual healthy eating habits. This includes missing one of the most important meals of the day, breakfast. It's easy to get caught up in Summer fun and run out the door forgetting to eat or grab a snack to go. Take advantage of these last few weeks of Summer by kicking off a smarter eating routine for you and your family. Let General Mills and Big G cereals help with two of their new tasty breakfast options – Cheerios Protein and Chex Gluten Free Oatmeal!

Back To School Safety With Master Lock #MasterBackToSchool

As parents many of us have already started with back to school preparations whether it's buying supplies or picking out uniforms. Keeping your child's belongings safe is just as important as making sure they are prepared for the new school year. When surveyed nearly half of parents have admitted that their child has had an item stolen from them at school, cell phones being the most valuable. Since students would rather keep their things safe and on them at all times they opt out of using lockers even though they provide convenience. These days it's vital that our children feel confident that their belonging are protected because the majority are carrying around expensive devices like laptops, cell phones, ipads, and even mp3 players.

Stylish Summer Hairstyles For Little Girls

Summer is still in full swing and the heat is definitely not letting up here in Florida. Along with picking out suitable clothing for the season, I always take extra time when it comes to making sure my little one’s hair is tamed! Being the mom of a little girl isn't a cake walk. Every night we have to wash, condition, spray, comb, and style. If these steps aren't taken I could easily mistake my daughter for a mangy lion that has never met a hairbrush. Summer doesn't make hairstyling much easier. It's hot, sticky, humid, and the frizz monster is always lurking around the corner. This is why it's so important to have a variety of cute yet manageable hairstyles for the Summer time. I've become a pro at the ballerina bun and cinnamon roll pigtails!

The end of Summer is quickly approaching, EEEKKK!  That means it's time to start preparing for back to school while also making the most of these last few weeks of relaxation. There is so much to do and so little time to get everything done. Now more than ever I have been looking for quick and easy meal ideas to get us through these busy weeks leading up to the first day of school. This week I headed to Publix® to  check out the Love to Shop Here, Love to Save Here” event running through the first week of August. It was time to stock up & save on my family's favorites.

Dont Wait For The Truck: Cool Off This Summer With An #IceCreamRun!

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post on behalf of Global Influence.

Am I the only one that thinks this Summer went by way too fast? Seriously, what the heck happened to the last couple of months! I think I am going to blame it on the heat and humidity, seems like a valid argument. It's so hard to focus on anything else when it's hot as the Sahara desert here. Every time I pick the munchkin up from school she is sweaty, sticky, and craving something cold. We learned a long time ago that waiting around for the ice cream truck to make an appearance in our neighborhood could take days, weeks, maybe even months. It's like a magical unicorn. You know it exists but you never see it. "Ain't nobody got time for that!" We would rather make an ice cream run around the corner to our local Walgreens
