Get Fit and Stay Fit with U by Kotex Fitness



Me and fitness go way back to the year I started my period. Like with most---if not all---teenage girls, it was an awkward and confusing time evolving from "girl" to "woman." One of my favorite bodily changes to adjust to? My metabolism. Unforeseen and unwelcome, I quickly bloated and gained until I went from a size 6 to a size 14---all in one year. I wasn't so crazy about this "period" stuff. Least of all because it was gross. My self-esteem hit an all-time low, only exacerbated by being the victim of bullying about my weight at the hands of my very own family. Well, you know what they say about the bottom. There's no way but up. So up, I went. Over the following 6 months, I didn't lose a lot of weight. But I worked out consistently, and slimmed down until I was a "lean and mean" size 6, and so much healthier than when I had been that size before.

As a mother, fitness and I started having relationship problems again (that has a tendency to happen, doesn't it?). We weren't communicating anymore, and we weren't seeing each other either. We decided it was best to see other people, at least for the time being. So fitness moved on to see other people---a lot of other people, after all, my local gym is always occupied during operating hours. And me? Well, I became close with a newborn (and inevitably an infant, and toddler) who had all kinds of fun stuff coming out of all of his orifices. Good times.

Months came and went... Who am I kidding? Years. Years came and went... and before I knew it, I had arrived at a point where my son was wanting more time with his dad, and this looked like the perfect opportunity for me and fitness to start seeing each other again (wink wink!). It's always humbling to return back to the gym only to discover that you don't just pick up where you left off... but instead feel like you're starting at the beginning all over again. Thank goodness for muscle memory, at least. With persistence, I got back to where I had left off, and in much less time than when I first started working out regularly. Now, as a mother of two, I find the most important thing to staying fit as a parent is consistency. And it takes products I can rely on to perform optimally to make me comfortable and help me stay fit. That's why, when it's that time of the month, I use U by Kotex Fitness. For my solo workouts using the treadmill and weight machines, and for my favorite zumba classes, the reliable performance of the U by Kotex Fitness tampons and pantyliners keep me going---always.

So get the coupon, and then head into your nearest Walgreens to find your fitness and pick up the U by Kotex Fitness feminine hygiene products that work for you.

The Rescue of Duke and Where #HealthyMeetsHappy

​​​​​​​

This post is sponsored by Wellness® and the BlogPaws® Pet Influencer Network™. I am being compensated to help share the availability of Wellness Complete Health and NEW Complete Health Grain Free Cat Food available at PetSmart, but we only share information we feel is relevant to our readers. Neither Wellness or PetSmart is not responsible for the content of this article.

We welcomed Duke to the family two months ago, adopted straight from a shelter shortly after he was surrendered. What can I really say about the state this cat was in when we first laid eyes on him? He was in poor shape, to say the least. Grossly underweight, and his beautiful, long apricot-colored hair was heavily matted. The volunteer who spoke with us informed us that his entire underside had consisted of so much matting, that they had no choice but to shave it off. To boot, his tail was on the slender side, looking disproportionate to his shape and general size, an indication that his nutrition wasn't where it should be. We knew immediately that there would be a lot of work involved, but we knew where Duke belonged: home.

The "road to recovery" for Duke had to begin with the most essential task: getting him on a wholesome diet that offered the nutrition needed to make him happy and healthy. I knew nothing less than an amazing food would be suitable, considering that our feline friends and other animal companions eat the same food every day---unlike the varied diet that most of their owners maintain. Naturally, I turned to Wellness as the source for not only adequate, but optimal nutrition to establish and maintain Duke's health. And let me tell you, he was happy with this dry cat food from the get-go! I quickly discovered that Duke is a picky feline, and not just any food will do. He prefers certain flavors, and textures, to others. Through trial and error, I've found he won't even walk up to bother sniffing some foods---whether wet or dry---and impatiently paw at others before I've even managed to finish opening the packaging. Standards certainly suited to royalty, I'd say.

Wellness® Complete Health™was a selection that Duke simply couldn't eat fast enough. I was very pleased to find the wide range of Wellness products available at my local Petsmart. He loved it immediately. His preference? The Wellness® Complete Health™ Grain Free Adult with deboned chicken and chicken meal. He enjoys this recipe so thoroughly, he will happily chow down a few pieces as a treat between feedings, and even choose it over several brands of cat treats! The grain-free options from Wellness are available in three varieties, and in sizes from 2.5 lbs to 11.5 lb bags. The Wellness standard for natural ingredients sets them apart from competitors, keeping their recipes free from unnecessary junk. I was very impressed at how well that these recipes are formulated, sourcing high quality ingredients, including sources of omega fatty acids, to create an excellent food. The Wellness Complete Health cat food has certainly received Duke's stamp of approval, and Wellness is certainly where healthy meets happy!

Full and content, Duke is ready for some leisurely time, but not too far from his favorite food!

Tea Love: Australia Collection (February 2017)



Disclosure: This is not a sponsored post, however, the following content contains affiliate links.

Tea Collection was born in San Francisco, and like the eclectic city from which it was created, it is inspired by the world. Tea is starting 2017 with their collection inspired by Down Under---none other than Australia. We're highlighting only 10 items from the newest collection to inspire your child's wardrobe into 2017 and beyond! Which is your favorite? Let us know in the comments below!






#1. The Fig Street Chambray Dress is available from sizes 2 to 12 and features an embroidered eyelet under the collar. Similar to denim, the neutral color and texture makes this darling dress perfect throughout the year, and can be worn by itself with sandals (or even sneakers!) or paired with any number of bottoms.
$49.95











#2. Thinking ahead to the warmer weather to come, you have to have the capri leggings from Tea Collection. We're loving these Capri Leggings in Bubble Gum! A stunning shade of pink that makes the perfect compliment to almost any outfit. These Bubble Gum leggings are a nice pairing to the Fig Street Chambray Dress above, highlighting the matching pink embroidery in the collar. You can find these lovely capri leggings from sizes 2 to 12. This versatile style is currently available in five colors: Bubble Gum (as pictured to the right), Yuzu, Soft Peach, Moonlight Blue, and Heritage Blue.
$19.50






#3. With a t-shirt as cute and stylish as the Whale Then Graphic Tee, your little citizen is sure to receive compliments all day long. This cool shirt is in "Mint Julep," a nice and warm color, wouldn't you say? Bound to become a warm weather favorite for boys both great and small! Available from size 2 to 12.
$19.50







#4. Solid colored bottoms---whether they are pants or shorts---are a must-have, as it greatly expands the range of this wardrobe essential. We're digging the earthy color of the Easy Does It Twill Shorts in Burnt Khaki, which you can find in sizes from 2 to 12. Although a bold choice for the Whale Then Graphic Tee above, we think it's perfect to make the colors of both pieces pop. These shorts pair well with so many of the items in the Australian collection, as well as from previous collections. Currently available in three colors: Burnt Khaki (as pictured), Blue Chambray, and Storm Grey.
$29.50



#5. Cue the "AWW!" and excuse us while we run to grab up this to-die-for sweater in every size! Meet the Bellow Baby Sweater in Coral Pink. You can purchase this sweater in a size as small as 3-6 months and as big as 4T. Can you imagine this adorable sweater as matching sibling sets? Priceless! We would be surprised if these don't sell out everywhere quickly, so if you're as in love with it as we are, grab it before it's gone.
$49.50












#6. The Savanna Baby Pants in Indigo are a dreamy shade of blue, and too cute for words! Dare we suggest these as being the perfect compliment to the Bellow Baby Sweater? This Baby Girl style is available in sizes starting at 3-6 months and up to 4T.
$35.50








#7. The Yamba Baby Outfit in Dusty Blue has adventure written all over it! You can find this Baby Boy style from size 3-6 months to 4T. We adore the combination of the dark blue shorts with the peachy fish on a light blue tee. Certainly an instant favorite!
$39.50











#8. For the love of plaid! We can't get over the stunning combination of oranges, whites, and blues that comprise the Cooper Button Baby Hoodie in Poseidon. We can just picture it on a little boy for special occasion photos in a forested setting. A great choice for every day wear, too! Available from 3-6 months to 4T.
$39.50







#9. Looking for the perfect gift for an expectant parent? It doesn't get much cuter than the Born Free Baby Outfit in Indigo! This print and pattern combination is eye-catching, and we love that this richly colored duo is gender neutral. Just what anyone could hope for at a baby shower! This set is available in NB to 6-9 months, making it a great choice for new parents, too.
$29.50












#10. Last but not least, what's not to love about the Puff Baby Outfit in Rose Petal? Bright and bold, this set is pure girl power. Thanks to the rich blue featuring an eye-catching pattern, this outfit is girly without going over the top. You can find this darling set in sizes from NB to 6-9 months.
$35.50

Making More Time for What Matters in 2017



If live with a child is busy and complex, life with multiple children is something else... Perhaps pure and utter, irreversible hair-pulling-and-breaking-down-in-tears kind of chaos? Sound familiar? Okay, so it may be a bit of an exaggeration on most days. But the hard days certainly feel that way.

My son, Everest, is now 4-years-old, and baby Sienna is no longer a baby, having celebrated her 1st birthday in September. I'm still in denial about the fact that I'm the mother of not one, but two, toddlers. Yet at the same time, my 1-year-old often acts more like a 3-year-old than a new toddler struggling to smooth out her skill set. Such is life with kids. Full of contradictions. So often one thing and the opposite are true, and something neither is right. But one thing is clear: my little kids are less little each and every day. And I don't want to miss any of it.

It's not always easy. "So much to do, so little time" doesn't really begin to describe life with children and the struggle to balance work, life, and the endless stream of activities and errands. At least for me, I felt like there was quite a learning curve in finding a balance between the best interest of each of my children, and the overall needs for our family.


One way I save myself time and money is by buying in bulk. So imagine my surprise when I discovered the Huggies Mega Colossal Pack at Sam's Club which is a 2-month supply! There are many benefits to a Sam's Club membership. A trip to Sam's Club always turns into family fun, starting with stocking up on essentials and finding great new products, and wrapping things up with a fresh salted pretzel from the food court for all of us to share. Our most recently trip to Sam's Club was no exception. We stocked up on produce and were so excited about Huggies' biggest pack ever. Instead of having to think about another trip to buy diapers for Sienna in a month's time, I can save myself the energy and time that I had anticipated, and not return for our stock-up on Huggies until two months from now. I am one happy mama!


Find out more about Sam's Club and the benefits of a membership. For a limited time, the Huggies Mega Colossal Pack is at an even better price to save you more money! You can pick up this huge box of diapers from Huggies with an $6 instant savings at checkout. But hurry, this huge savings won't last long. Look for the 2-month supply pack from Huggies at a location near you using the store locator on the Sam's Club website.
