Chicco Car Seat NextFit ix- Newborn to Preschool

*Updated July 8, 2019 -*2 years in and the Chicco NextFit ix Convertible Car Seat is holding up amazing! We have had 2 kids in this seat now, and we cannot recommend it enough.

Car Seats these days can be so hard to shop for.  You’re going to want the safest and best for your little one.  There are so many rules and regulations about car seats, that sometimes it can be hard to figure out what is best.  And kids outgrow everything so much faster than you want them to!  The saying “don’t blink” is a serious thing! They grow so fast that you are going to want things that last a long time.  You don’t want to have to buy 4 different car seats per child, and every time you turn around your child has outgrown their seat.  With the Chicco NextFit ix Convertible Car Seat, you’ll be able to use this seat from newborn to their preschool years!

Best of Orlando with the Mazda CX-3

Heading out on our Best of Orlando trip, we wanted to drive a fun little car that we could zip all around Orlando and head out to the beach as well.  So, we partnered with Mazda, and spent the week with their new 2017 Mazda CX-3.  Its a Compact Crossover SUV.  But not an SUV you’re thinking, it’s a much smaller scale.  It’s such a cute car, and is perfect for those who want the feel of an SUV, but not the huge size of one.

Spring Clean Your Dishes with Lifetime Brands!

You may have started or even finished your Spring Cleaning to do lists, but when is the last time you did Spring Cleaning with your dishes?  We realized our mom hadn’t had new flatware in a REALLY long time.  8 adults in the family, and 5 kids, with years and years of use, we decided it was time to get her a brand new (and matching) set for Mother’s Day!

The Perfect Summer Firepit

It’s summer time, and here in California, that means nights outside.  We just got a brand new fire pit just in time for all the outdoor parties, and its big enough for our large family!  We got the57” rectangular fire pit from Best Choice Products, and love it already!  It is a dark brown color, and is made of aluminum, so is strong, sturdy, and will hold up after all of our nights outside. 

Beauty Faves for the Summer

What girl doesn’t love beauty, makeup, skin care, and/or nail care…We have found some really awesome new products from Rimmel London, Sally Hansen, and Jergen’s.  

This one is all about the makeup, and Rimmel London is at the top of our list!  I mean, look at this new can help tint your eyelashes in as little as 2 weeks!  Being a redhead myself, my eyelashes are really light, and hard to see.  With this new tinting formula, I could go without mascara if I wanted, when my eyelashes tint a bit darker.  Super excited about seeing results with this one.

My Fairy Garden

Summer is here, and kids are out of school, and if they are anything like our kids, they are probably ready for lots of adventures, crafting, and playing.  The My Fairy Garden from PlayMonster is perfect for that.  Your kids can plant their very own garden, and watch their garden grow.  The My Fairy Garden is great to teach kids about plant life, responsibility,  and nurturing, in a fun way.  

PolarPro Filters

We personally love to use our GoPro on all of our vacations, and especially for our underwater adventures…I mean, capturing your snorkeling/scuba diving adventures?! So cool!  So when we went to Australia, and were swimming around the Great Barrier Reef, our footage turned out a bit cloudy.
