b4 Hand Sanitizers Are a Teacher’s Best Friend!

Disclosure: I received b4 products to write a review about. No other compensation was received. All opinion are my own. 

Back to school time is very exciting for me as a teacher! I get to decorate my classroom and plan another exciting school year of learning activities, but the best part is meeting my new students on the first day of class!

keep calm After teaching for so many years and having my share of illnesses, I’ve learned the importance of making extra efforts to sanitize my classroom and my own hands, especially while I’m around the kids. I love each and every one of them and give out lots of hugs on a daily basis, I just don’t love what different germs get brought to school with them.

When the people over at b4 asked if I’d like to try some of their hand sanitizer products, I was quick to respond with a “yes!“.  After having an awful flu last year, I’m taking back-to-school seriously this year, including being more pro-active about sanitizing! This year, I actually wrote b4 products into my lesson plans! Ok, that was a joke, but seriously, my b4 packets sit right on top of my desk!

photo-325b4 is a hand sanitizer that refreshes and cleans all while giving back to the community. b4’s purpose is to change lives through charitable giving. Yes, that’s right — b4 gives back, which is what I love most about them! b4 gives 50 percent of all profits from sales to children-focused causes. The profits are donated through The Midway Foundation and more than $1.3 million has already been donated to 150 organizations.

I received an envelope filled with several packets of  individual hand sanitizer packets, as well as some big boxes of  them. The fact that the individual packets came in several different colors was just an added bonus. Everyone loves a rainbow!

photo-327Here are some highlights about b4 Products:

  • The b4 hand sanitizer is specially formulated to kill 99.9% of germs and bacteria
  • Each single-use gel hand sanitizer is packaged in eye-popping, bold colors
  • Hand sanitizer packets can be co-branded – b4 works with companies to customize colors, logos, etc.
  • b4 hand sanitizer moisturizes hands with Vitamin E and aloe
  • All b4 products are made in the USA
  • b4 is a triclosan-free hand sanitizer

Not only did I use several of these during my first week back teaching, but I also packed a box of b4 in Emi’s backpack on her first day of school.  I’m sure she’ll be excited to share with all of her friends!

photo-326Check out all of the b4 products on their site. They are so convenient and can just be thrown into your purse or a backpack. Right now you can receive 15% off your order when you place your order online, using. the code “b4health” Orders over $35 receive free shipping.  Also, starting September 20, you’ll be able to purchase b4 products at Staples.

I love supporting companies like b4 that give back to others!

Don Roberto Jewelers Knows How to “Bling It On”!

When I was invited to the grand opening celebration of the Don Roberto Jewelers in Huntington Park, I gladly accepted as it was a chance to meet up with some of my girlfriends for some “Mommy Time” to do some jewelry shopping.  There were mariachis, food, balloon animals for the kids, and a raffle for some great prizes!

IMG_4939

folklorico dancers I loved their beautiful costumes! 

I enjoy trying on jewelry and Don Roberto has a gorgeous selection of jewelry and watches in their store.  My eyes were immediately drawn to some pieces in the front case of the store. Everything was so sparkly and I spotted the most perfect necklace with a little crown on it. Obviously this necklace would be perfect any princess, both young and old.

Right next to the crown necklace was a lock and key necklace. I loved the way this one too. I wear a lot of white gold and I like the look of pavé. The salesgirl was so helpful and even suggested pairing the 2 necklaces together to create an even prettier look.

As I continued to browse the jewelry case, I also found some gorgeous heart earrings with a matching heart necklace. I could feel my Don Roberto jewelry wish list growing by the minute!

A hot pink pop of color was the first thing that caught my eye from the watch case! They have a huge selection of watches in the store that are very reasonably priced, including Juicy Couture. I had no idea that Juicy Couture watches were made my Movado!  That speaks a lot about their quality.

I also loved some of their other watches, especially the Hello Kitty collection. It seemed like everyone was trying these watches on. You’re never too old to love Hello Kitty!

After trying on a few watches, we decided we needed to stop and take a selfie! It’s just what my friends and I love to do!

When we resumed our shopping, I checked out some of the beautiful earrings. I loved the petite hearts because I usually wear really small earrings, but I also loved the flower earrings. They were very sparkly on my ears.

I also tried on this delicate bracelet that was all hearts linked together. I could wear this for everyday but also for a special occasion where I need to dress up an outfit or formal dress.

The last piece I tried on was a very simple, tri-colored necklace. I like the combination of the metals on this necklace. I also like that it’s different from anything I usually wear.

After spending almost 2 hours in the store, trying on jewelry and socializing, I needed to make a decision about what I was going to get. Sometimes you end up finding way more than you originally intended to shop for. Don Roberto offers an “Easy Pay” option, which is a line of credit that makes buying jewelry WAY easier.

photo-321Look at my new Hello Kitty watch! 

I finally decided on one of the adorable Hello Kitty watches! Why not? I never buy anything like that for myself and so I decided to do so for once. They packed my new watch it in this beautiful red bag for me to take home.

I had such a fun experience shopping at Don Roberto Jewelers. The staff was so friendly and helpful and really made me feel welcomed. I hope to go back and shop there again soon. They know how to “Bling it on”!

Knott’s Scary Farm 2014: All of the Frightening Details! #ScaryFarm

It’s only August and here I am, already getting excited for Halloween! I was ecstatic to be invited to Knott’s Media Preview where they released all of the exciting details for Knott’s Scary Farm this year! Luckily some of my friends there with me to hold my hand though, because I was kind of scared and everywhere I turned, there were monsters and zombies!

Knott's Scary Farm sign As the fog rolled into the already-dark theater we were all seated in, the lights went all the way out and screaming began. Most of the screams were excited Scary Farm fans, but I think I also heard a few REAL blood curdling screams too. I didn’t dare investigate to see where those were coming from though!

Ruth and IThank goodness @socalpocketmemories was there to keep me safe in the dark! I was so scared! 

The announcements started out with news about the return of the one and only, Elvira, Mistress of the Dark! Elvira will be making appearances in her show, Elvira’s Big Top, every night of Knott’s Scary Farm this year in the Charles M. Schultz Theater.

Elvira, Mistress of the DarkElvira is truly timeless! (photo credit: Knott’s)

This year, Elvira will also have her own Boo-tique and guests who spend over $50 in her Boo-tique will have an opportunity to meet Elvira!  Check out some of the merchandise! Elvira's Boo-tiqueI already see some things I NEED from Elvira’s Boo-tique! (photo credit: Knott’s)

You could even meet Elvira Wow, you can shop AND have a chance to meet her? That sounds like a win-win!

(photo credit: Knott’s)

I grew up watching Elvira! If you could see her in person you would totally understand why I was fangirling that night!  The lady looks amazing from every angle and I swear she doesn’t need to lie about her age because clearly she’s only 29!

As soon as Elvira exited the stage, I heard a loud gunshot and looked to see the Sheriff was in town to announce that The Hanging would also be back this year for Knott’s Scary Farm!

The Hanging is Back! Yep, you can witness it over in Calico Square! Did you know that you can even vote for WHO they hang in Calico Square? Just click here to vote! (I, myself, am voting for Justin Bieber!)

The Hanging I wouldn’t want to get on these guys’ bad side! (photo credit: Knott’s)

Next came all of the news about which mazes and Scare Zones would be back for the 2014 season.

Here’s a list of the mazes that are returning this year and where they’ll be located:

  • Dominion of the Damned will be adjacent to GhostRider
  • Forevermore will be at the Mystery Lodge Entrance
  • Gunslinger’s Grave will be adjacent to Silver Bullet
  • Black Magic will be near Xcelerator

  • The Tooth Fairy will be adjacent to GhostRider
  • TRAPPED: Lock and Key inside Boardwalk Ballroom (Reservation & additional fee required. Click here for more info)

envelopeThe final announcement was the BIGGEST and BEST one of all! 

Even with all of that exciting news about the horrific additions to Scary Farm this year, there was one more HUGE announcement to make and we were all made to wait in suspense….until finally they shared what the biggest news by far was…this year for Knott’s Season Passholders, a special unlimited Knott’s Scary Farm pass is available for purchase online for only $65 (plus applicable taxes and fees)!

whoa

That means you can go as many nights as you wish and there are NO blackout dates! Wow, talk about a pass holder perk! These special tickets are on sale now through August 17th. If there are any left, they will go on sale to the general public on August 18 for $75 (plus applicable taxes and fees).

(if they didn’t do it right then and there from their smartphones!)

Fresh Market Opens in Laguna Hills

Disclosure: We were invited for a preview tour of Fresh Market. No compensation was received. All opinions are my own. 

fresh market openThere’s a new Fresh Market in town in Laguna Hills! It’s one of the first businesses open in The Village at Nellie Gail Ranch, which is a retail center that’s been newly renovated.

We had the opportunity to grab a sneak peek inside of the newest Fresh Market location, the night before it opened to the public. It was so exciting to watch all that was going on behind the scenes for their grand opening. Everywhere we turned there were people stocking the shelves and aisles for the big day!

stocking the shelves

tomatoes lemons plums Right when you walk through the front door of Fresh Market your eyes are drawn towards all of the color in their produce section and you’re soothed by the classical music playing. Their produce sections seems to make up about 1/3 of the store and offers fruits and veggies that are fresh, locally grown and ready to serve at your table. When I say “local” I mean grown within 100 miles if it’s labeled “local” and within 300 miles if it’s labeled “regional”.  I like having fruit that is ready to be eaten and not something sitting on the counter for a few days to ripen. I also like that they offer a variety of fruit and veggies that are cut and freshly packed on site. They’re perfect as after school grab n’ go snacks for my daughter.

packaged fruit

watermelonThe bakery department in Fresh Market appeared to have many empty baskets because they were all waiting to be filled with freshly baked goods.

baskets  We learned that many items are baked on a daily basis for the next morning, with the bakers coming in at 9pm to bake for the next morning. It’s an around-the-clock effort over there to provide the freshest for the customers. There are lots of other yummy items to choose from in the bakery department, aside from just bread.

We got to enjoy samples of a delicious Blackened Steak recipe prepared by one of the chefs from Chefs USA.

unbelievable cheese IMG_4234They have an unbelievable selection of cheeses!  

more cheese she loved sampling She’s a girl after my own heart…she loves cheese too! 

As we got to browse the store on our own, I felt like a kid in a candy store. Ok literally on the candy aisle I did! How can you NOT be mesmerized by a rainbow of colored candies?

coffee for day

Their aisles had so many wonderful products on the shelves, as did the refrigerated section. Fresh Market carries their own brand, as well as some other hand-picked brands.

beers You can even “build your own 6-pack” at Fresh Market. Just choose any 6 beers and make one! 

The concept behind Fresh Market is similar to that of a European market, where you are stopping by 3-4 times per week to shop for that day’s meals. I especially love that idea because often times I am a day-by-day planner. I also get a little weird about my food being in my fridge for too long, so knowing that what I’m stopping by to pick up is fresh, gives me that peace of mind. If you don’t have time to stop by the actual store, they also offer home delivery through their site with online ordering!

If you haven’t stopped by a Fresh Market, you should do so soon. Click here for a location near you.

Help Me Find This Couple from Disney’s 24-Hour Event! They Got Engaged! #RockYourDisneySide

I was just going through my pictures from Disney’s Rock Your Disney Side 24-hour event back in May, when I came across some that I totally forgot about.  As Emi and I were walking around that day, I had my camera out and ready to snap pics. Just as we approached Sleeping Beauty’s Castle, there were a bunch of people standing around and I witnessed the end of an engagement! This adorable couple, dressed as Belle and Beast, was in the center of the crowd. I knew something special was happening so I started snapping pics. Emi totally missed it but I got a few. They seemed very shy and although the PhotoPass people took some pics, I think it was just really quick and then they were done. I never got to chase after them to tell them I caught a few of the pics because I felt like I’d be interrupting their moment. I know that no one else caught these other pictures of them though and looking at them again, I see that it was “Belle’s” birthday! (her name is Yela) I’m guessing he arranged Photopass to snap a castle pic for them, letting her believe it was just for her birthday and then broke out a ring! That’s my best guess, but I’m a total fantasizer! I believe in fairytales! Regardless of the real details, I know that they’d want these pictures, because I know I would if it were me, so I’m determined to find them, so I can give them the pictures! I was tearing up adding these to this post. I think you’ll tear up too! Just look….

Belle can't believe itThis one chokes me up BIG TIME! I think the shock and excitement just settled in here! 

Blushing BelleBlushing Belle 2Belle and Beast walking awayLook at her backpack! I love her backpack! It’s him! 

Belle and Beast goneAs I stood there in shock, they just walked away. I was too frozen to bother them in the middle of their moment! 

So… I’m going to rely on social media to help me find Belle and Beast…because I know how powerful social media can be!  I also know that if I had gotten engaged like this, I’d want these pictures for my own keepsakes. Sorry guys but I think this guy just set the bar really high!

Do you know them? If not, please help spread the word!

Now let’s sing it….”Tale as old as time...”

Getting Ready to Go ON THE ROAD for the Disney Social Media Moms Conference!

The day I got an email in my inbox inviting me to attend the Disney Social Media Moms on the Road Conference in Arizona was a Magical One!

OTR invite

I’d connected with so many other Disney-loving moms online who are also in the social media world and this was finally going to be my chance to connect with many of them in person! I was also excited about the location of the conference, The Fairmont Scottsdale Princess Resort! The property looked like it had so much to offer when I checked out the website. Emi was excited for the pools and Sonoran Splash, which are the watersides. I just couldn’t wait for all of it!

As the conference date neared, I started to plan out which necessities I’d need. I made a list of road trip necessities, in-room necessities, and conference necessities! Since Emi was going to be traveling with me to Arizona, although she wouldn’t be attending the actual conference, I wanted to get some extra special things for our trip to maximize our dual Disney Side.

First of all, let’s talk EARS! I love wearing ears. I wear ears when I’m in the parks. I sometimes wear ears when I’m teaching. I wear ears when I’m cleaning the house, unless I’m already wearing a tiara to clean! I will find any excuse to wear ears. Emi and I both already have black and red ears but I was in search of new ones for this special occasion.  I came across an adorable local (to me) shop on Facebook called Popsikle Shop. She makes custom ears, so I decided to order a pair for both emi and I, matching of course!

popsikleNext we went shopping for warm weather necessities. Wait, I didn’t mean warm weather, I meant HOT weather! (Have you ever been to Arizona at the end of June?) Emi wanted to find some items that were matching and Disney-ish. We really lucked at Walmart! Their Juniors section had a ton of really cute bathing suits and swim shorts. Hot pink with white polka dots was VERY “Minnie”

twinsSo adorable, don’t you agree?

visorsDo you like our hot pink visors, too? 

matching dressesWe also found matching polka dotted coverups at Walmart that we wore as sundresses!

Walmart had everything we needed for our trip. We found sunglasses, water shoes, some other summer clothes, sunblock, and even snacks for the road trip! Not only did they have everything we needed, but it was also very affordable!

shirts

We also packed the personalized t-shirts we had made for Disney24 to wear in the room as part of our pajamas. I think this was the first trip we’d gone on where we had almost exact matching wardrobes. It was pretty cute!

I knew I needed to find something special to bring to this conference and hand out with my business cards. I racked my brain for something that I could make, but I truly had no extra time to really make anything by hand. Then I came across a post from a friend of mine, Xenia, who had recently hosted a Disney Junior Familia Party. It was on that post that I discovered alfajores! I KNEW immediately that they where what I needed to bring to the conference. Melo made me some AMAZING Mickey-shaped alfajores in both pink and white animal-cookie flavor and churro flavor! She was sweet enough to wrap them individually for me to pass out to friends. Needless to say, they were a hit!

holding minnieWe even went to Michael’s to buy some chalk paint pens and the night before we left, we wrote on our car windows! We had to be the most prepared car driving through the desert! Emi even wrote “Honk if you love Disney” on my rear window!

Oh well, more Disney for us, right?

 

So You Think You Want Eyelash Extensions?

As a mommy who also works full-time, I don’t leave a lot of time for myself these days. I often times leave the house in outfits that wouldn’t exactly be classified as “thoughtfully planned out”. I also don’t take much time to do my hair or makeup on most days. I could probably win a spot on one of those frumpy mom makeover shows!

I’d seen other women before with lash extensions, but never looked into getting them. A mom friend of mine actually does lash extensions, so I decided to be adventurous. After trying out a full set for the first time, I realized how amazing they were, especially for someone like me who takes no time to get ready in the morning. With lash extensions, you can literally have not an ounce of makeup on and still look like you do.

Here’s what my eyelashes look like before my appointment.

Here’s what it looks like during a lash fill!

And the finished product! BAM!

I’m going to share a little bit about my own experience on this post so that others who may have been curious about trying them, might have some of their questions answered. I’m not a professional nor am I affiliated with a lash company in any way. I’m going to address some of the most common questions I’ve been asked since I’ve worn lash extensions.

“Don’t lash extensions make your own eyelashes fall out?” 

I think people have a HUGE misconception about lash extensions. I’ve heard many women comment about how lash extensions make your own lashes actually fall out. This is actually untrue. What they do is make you more aware of your own natural lash cycle. Our natural eyelashes fall out all the time. I know this to be true because I’ve made many wishes upon lashes that have fallen out. When you place lash extensions on top of real lashes, it doesn’t cause that to happen any quicker, you just pay more attention to it when they fall out with extensions. Your own eyelashes also grow back. It’s all cyclical.

I’ve been wearing lash extensions for about a year now and I’ve gone a couple different times without any on to give my lashes a break. (yes, you need to do that a couple times a year when your lash person recommends it) I still had lashes, they were just short and seemed way less dramatic than when I had the extensions on.  At that point you can wear mascara on your own natural lashes. It takes a few weeks without any lash extensions on, for your own lashes to regrow and seem full again. Last Christmas I took a 3 week break and by the end of the 3 weeks, my lashes were really getting back to “normal” in a natural way.

“Can you still wear makeup when you have lash extensions, specifically mascara?”

You can still wear makeup, yes. What your lash technician will suggest to you is that you make sure the makeup you’re wearing is oil-free, especially the eye makeup you’re wearing. There are certain brands that are actually NOT good to wear with lash extensions because they’ve been known to make your extensions have a quicker rate of falling out. I won’t name any brand names, but you can ask your lash person which brands of makeup you should avoid.

As far as wearing mascara, you don’t really need to wear mascara. I think it’s possible to wear some, but again, I’d ask your lash person about the mascara.

Overall, I find that I don’t wear as much makeup now. Lash extensions can fall off and they do. This is normal. I only wear full makeup when I’m going somewhere important and that is because I want to avoid any extra fallout. When you wash your face and you take your makeup off, you will lose a lash or a few. Obviously, the more often you wear eye makeup, the more often this could happen . This is also something you can discuss with your lash person.

“What’s the best way to care for your eyelash extensions?”

First of all, you have to brush your lashes and you have to do it carefully. Your lash person will give you a lash brush, which is basically just a clean mascara wand. You can get extra ones at any makeup counter. It’s what they use when they’re doing your makeup in a store and they don’t want to use the regular mascara wand on you.  You need to brush them because they’ll get “wonky” on you. When I say wonky, I literally mean you will wake up sometimes with lashes going all different ways. You need to use the brush to redirect them.

You need to keep your lashes clean if you want them to last. Your lash person will tell you how important this is. If you wear makeup, especially eye makeup, make sure you take it all off properly. (I use Almay oil-free eye makeup remover pads)

Something that might also help your lashes last longer is to apply a sealant. This is something you can buy from your lash person, so ask. This is especially important in the hot months.

I also recommend sleeping on your back, if you can. I already did this, but the less you lay on your face and eyelashes, the better for them.

And most importantly….DO NOT PICK THEM! At first you might be curious but I’ve seen people do this and all that you’re going to do is pull them out quicker and have less. Your lash person will thank you for not picking at your lashes.

“How often do you need to get your lashes done?” 

Your lashes should last you about 3 weeks in between fills. During the hotter months, you may need to go in about every 2 weeks. If you find someone you love to do your lashes, like I have, then it’s actually a treat to go for your appointment because not only are you getting prettied up, but you’re having some fun, girl time to chit chat!

“What length is good to start out with when you get eyelash extensions?”

I think I’ll be stating the obvious here when I say “go long!” If you’re worried about not looking natural or looking fake, then maybe lash extensions aren’t for you. They are there to give you that BAM look and every time I go in for my fill and she asks me how long I want them to be, I simply reply with “BAM!”

“Can you recommend someone who does lashes?” 

If you live in Orange County and would like a referral to the person I go to, I’d be happy to refer you if you email me at [email protected]. If you don’t, I’d recommend asking people in the area you live. I would also NOT recommend getting lashes on a coupon deal of an unknown. It’s very important that you go to someone who is experienced and knows what they’re doing. As with anything you might do to your body, there’s always a risk of allergic reaction or infection and you want to be working with someone that can recognize those things if they happen to you.

I hope my post about lash extensions has been helpful.
