Did you catch Stella & Dot on Undercover Boss last night? It was a great episode and if you missed it, you can check it out on CBS

All of the employee's who were featured had such wonderful attitudes and really loved working for Stella & Dot.

Review: Space Scouts

I've always been into anything relating to the stars, planets, the Universe, etc. So when my son showed an interest, I was really excited to share my love for space with him. He has a pretty expensive telescope (birthday gift from a family friend), has books on the cosmos, and we even watch shows related to it like the miniseries Cosmos and the TV show Into the Wormhole. Pretty much any TV show related to space, we're into it. 

So when I had the chance to get two months of Space Scouts for free, I was excited! All the things he could learn, and I had no idea that such a subscription existed. 
Check out all the goodies included in this subscription!

So, first let me start by saying my son tore into the kit before I could take many photos! I literally only have the photo above thanks to him! He was super excited to get this. I knew I should have taken photos while he was in school. But nooooo, I gotta be the cool mom and show him right away what he got... lesson learned. 

So the photo above is the first box. You get a lunchbox, and everything you need to start out. The Constellation collection is fun because you get a new card each month to add onto the key ring. You get a sticker puzzle of part of the sky and planets. This first box came with wax sticks that he can use to make whatever he wanted. The instructions showed him how to make glasses, then he went crazy and started making other things with it, like people and shapes. 

There are also papers with puzzles and fun games that tell you about the constellations, and why they're named what they're named. The intro box also includes a general intro information page, to tell you what you can expect each month. There is also a large map that you can place the coordinating sticker for each month with each box/lesson.

Each month features puzzles, word searches or other games to help you learn more about the stars. You'll also get a toy, the next sticker for the map, and other fun stuff!

He definitely enjoyed this package! 


"Space Scouts monthly subscription club for kids is a delightful learning adventure aimed at discovering the wonders of the universe! Each month your child will explore a new place in space -- stepping into the worlds of space exploration, space science, and astronomy. Join Roxy and Jett as they scout about the galaxy engaging your child in fun learning activities, hands-on discovery, and exciting challenges. Packages arrive each month filled with fun additions to your collection -- magnets, stickers, toys, and more!"

Space Scouts is a stellar vehicle for launching your child's interest in science & technology! This is not your typical grab-bag subscription box. Space Scouts is a fun, educational experience where each month builds upon the previous. It's a great way to learn!

The price is reasonable and affordable for a kids box. It is  $11.95 per month + $3.00 shipping. Discounts for multi-month purchase. Space Scouts is designed for kids age 6+. Visit our website to learn more! 20% discount - Use promo code USFAMILY20 at checkout to receive 20% discount on your initial purchase of any Space Scouts subscription plan.

(discount ends 1/31/2015! So hurry up and act fast!)

This would be a great gift for birthdays or holidays, and will keep giving all year long (or for as long as you pay for it!) :)

Going to the Park; A Liv On Life Book Review

I was recently lucky enough to receive an adorable book that reminded me to take time and smell the roses. Could you believe it's from a kids book? Yea. A children's book reminded me that I need to step away from the computer (yikes!) and put down my cell phone, and to stop pinning on my Kindle, and to just enjoy the day. Especially with my kids. Can you imagine growing up with your parents constantly on a computer or iPhone? Telling you to "hold on a minute sweetie". I don't want them to remember that. This book put a really cute spin on that for me.


Read more about this great book and the other titles in the series below the jump!


This book is adorable, and when I read it to my kids for the first time, my son, who is 10, pointed out that I am like the mom in the story. She's too frustrated with traffic to notice the pink roses or the puppy in the car next to them. She is too caught up to just enjoy what's around her. I know that I've done that. I've heard myself say, "one minute" for about 10 minutes. Then I realize what I'm doing can wait. I realized that the kids needed me, for whatever reason, more than I needed my phone. These days, there isn't a parent who can't relate to this in one way or another.


We're all guilty of this. What has electronics done to us? This book, meant to be an adorable kids book, ended up teaching me, a 28-year-old woman, a lesson. How crazy is that?


The main character, Liv, and her dog Bowie.



A little about the books. 


"Going to the Park is the first title in the Liv On Life Series (LOL), which features Olivia (aka Liv) and her best friend, Bowie, a Boxer dog.  Liv is the go-to-girl for kids and parents looking for advice on how to navigate our modern, technological world.  Going to the Park tells the story of Liv and Bowie recognizing that Mom and Dad need a break from the stresses of work.  Liv and Bowie convince their Mom and Dad to put down the technology and head out for a fun day at the park!"
 About the Artist.


"As an artist I (Elizabeth) have been creating my entire life—with paint, film (Footloose, Teen WolfMax Headroom), and words.  The LOL book series is inspired by my daughter, Olivia.  When Olivia was barely three-years-old I began to record the wisdom and advice that she would spontaneously deliver to anyone who was listening.   I dubbed this collection “Liv-Isms” and each book in the LOL Series is based on these utterances.  The message is clear…in a high-tech and fast-paced world, kids are still the best teachers.  In encouraging my own daughter to embrace and use her authentic voice, I have realized how much adults can, and must, learn from the purity and honesty of a child’s perspective.  Olivia and I work side-by-side on the series and are having a blast doing it!"
The images inside the covers. Cute little girl things!
 Some of the story. Click to enlarge if you want to get a better view.

 The intro of the parents. The lines on these two pages hit my heart.

The back cover.

I want to say, this book helped my daughter, Bella, learn a new word. I've posted it before (I think) that my Bella is in speech therapy because she isn't saying as many words as she should be at her age. Thankfully the insurance pays it 100% (whew). When we first received this book, she was really excited as she loves books. But she pointed to the dog. She hadn't learned that word, though she knows what dogs are. I told her, "that's a dog". Then she said it. She said, "dog". So now, she brings me the book and says "dog, book". She loves pointing to the dog on each page and finding the dog hiding in the car on the traffic page. :D

I can't wait to check out these upcoming titles! I can't wait to see what else is in store for Liv!
Upcoming titles in the Liv On Life Series:  Green is GoodWhat’s In My Backpack?I Don’t Wear JeansI Know What Time It is, Just Smile!Read, Read, and ReadYou Go, I GoSUNday!, Scootie and Me.
Check out Liv on Life on your favorite social media channel
Fun fact: If you follow on Instagram, you get to see the real Liv! 

*I received this book in exchange for my honest thoughts and review.

Organic Green Tea Matcha Review and Recipes!

I've tried green tea before, but typically it is the teabag type. I'm not much of a loose leaf tea person. But I've never heard of Matcha or powdered tea! Never did I think that I could have a tea drink with less sugar than I'd ever think to use. Can you tell that I may have been a bit skeptical before trying this stuff? But I tried it with the recipes they provided.

Did I like it? Love it? Hate it? Keep reading to see!

Review: Ozeri Ultra 42 inch Wind Fan

I got to try this amazing fan from Ozeri. Let me tell you how great it is, and why you should get one, too!

Keep reading after the jump!

Review: Ozeri Pedometer

I've used pedometers before, typically they were on my phone though. Did you realize that smartphones have apps that can track your steps? The most recent one I've downloaded is Noom. However, I'm starting to realize it tracks EVERY movement made. So when it says I walked 2,000 steps when I've been home all day, I know it's wrong. Granted, I want something like a Fitbit, but it's out of the budget at the moment. 

For those who want a good old fashioned pedometer, the Ozeri pedometer is a great choice. I received this pedometer in exchange for my honest review.
