Carol S. Miller Handbags
        While I'm not always the girliest of girls, I do love searching out that next unique accessory and being the first to sport it.  My purses and handbags very rarely change because I tend to find one I love and use it loyally until either it's worn completely or the next one is discovered.  This is how I came across Carol S. Miller Handbags.

Cool Gear 'Awesome for ANY Occasion' Review and #Giveaway #GetMOONed

"Swim, Sun, and Fun" Giveaway

        When I first think of Summer and vacations to tropical locations, I think of foo foo drinks on the beach with umbrellas and big chunks of fruit in them OR straight from the fruit itself!  There is just something magical about enjoying the refreshing taste of Summer!  However, that isn't always possible is it?!  My family was not able to afford taking a vacation this year with moving into the new house and all the other financial responsibilities we've taken on.

        So of course we turned to the next best thing, vacation at home (or commonly known as stay-cations).  Of course our favorite brand has us covered.  The brand you will most frequently find us using throughout the Summer is of course, Cool Gear Inc.  Not only have a enjoyed the many opportunities to be an ambassador for the brand but it truly is one which has me and my family in mind.

        Cool Gear provides all sorts of eco-friendly products that just about anyone can use.  They have everything from reusable cups and self filtering water bottles to salad containers and ice blocks for entertaining.  Its great see such a variety from a company trying contribute in a fun way to the three R's (reduce, reuse, recycle).  "Since 1986, we have been conceptualizing and developing ideas, turning them into products and bringing them to the marketplace. We deliver innovative and imaginative products to the marketplace while providing a 100% customer satisfaction policy."

        This time we were sent over a variety of their new summer Tiki Tumblers. Since we use our Cool Gear cups for traveling to and from the beaches, poolside, and every where we can think, these were perfect to kick off summer.  The kids have been using each of their designated design (their choice) when heading out back to relax on the deck or poolside.  

        Each of the Tiki, Pineapple, and Coconut holds 16 oz of liquid and are double wall insulated which helps keep their beverages cool even on the hottest of days!  These items have been an awesome edition to our Cool Gear supplies as we continue to entertain in the most eco-friendly way possible!

Cost/Available to purchase:  $7.99 Tiki Tumblers 
Recommendation:  I would recommend these "cool" products to everyone and anyone.  Cool Gear not only makes a difference but can also save you money.  Each time I check out their site they have new creative products for everyone and anyone to use - kids or adults.  Over the last few years I have bought myself several other Cool Gear products when I find them in stores.

Infinite Discs Infinite Starter Set Review and #Giveaway #GetMOONed

"Swim, Sun, and Fun" Giveaway
        Because we love to be outdoors, we are always looking for new lawn games to play or activities to participate in.  One of the issues we come up with frequently is finding something that both the big kids "aka adults" and the little kids can both enjoy.  Even if the kids aren't trying to join in with the grown ups, we still like to have enjoyable options for them as well!

        When I was younger we used to camp at least two times a month.  It is one of my favorite childhood memories and honestly one of the only quality times we had spent as a family.  The boys are finally at the age where they can get active in sports, camping, and taking trips to the beach.  Our Summers are perfect for the beach, pool and water park trips.  And our Falls are perfect for trips to the playground, tailgating, camping and bonfire weather. 

Terminix Bait and Kill Review and #Giveaway -Entertain Without Restrictions #GetMOONed

"Swim, Sun, and Fun" Giveaway
        So being that my family spends basically the entire summer, spring and many fall days/nights outdoors, we have fallen victim to the mosquito’s.  We've tried the spray’s and the other products on the market, but honestly none have worked.  So when I heard about the Terminix® AllClear® Mosquito BAIT and KILL, I thought this would be the perfect thing for us to try both at home and in my parents.

Snappy Happy Self-portrait Monopod 40" Extendable Selfie Stick with Bluetooth Review and #Giveaway


@MOON_Blogs Sponsor Highlight
"Swim, Sun, and Fun" Giveaway
        While I understand I live in a generation of technology, there are still certain trends I despise and refuse to hop on board right away with.  The selfie trend is a big one right now.  Not only do I think the concept of selfie's can be pretty vane, but more-so I guess I don't like the way I look in my selfies LOL.  Though, knowing I have a teenager who is obsessed with taking selfies of herself and friends, I quickly agreed when asked by SnappyHappyTM to review their Self-portrait Monopod 40" Extendable Selfie Stick with Bluetooth.

SwimOutlet.com Coleman 120 Quart Xtreme Cooler Review and #Giveaway #GetMOONed

"Swim, Sun, and Fun" Giveaway

        When I first think of Summer, I think of all the fun activities, events, and travel possibilities for me and my family.  I thrive in the warm weather and so does each member of my family.  With Michigan weather kind of skeptical most months, it seems like we've got limited time to enjoy the outdoors.  So we use any excuse we can find to spend time outside.  With brands like the SwimOutlet.com, I feel like this is more easily possible as long as we are prepared.  

Point Pong 'Portable Fun for Everyone' Review and #Giveaway #GetMOONed

        Now I can't totally speak for other people my age or younger.  However, I personally feel like most every one whose ever gone to a party, tailgated, or even attended a college university, you've heard of beer pong.  You've probably played (no I'm not judging) or you've watched a game take place.  Being a big drinker myself and coming from big party school, I can easily admit I've played my fair share of beer pong...OK maybe even more than I'd like to admit.

Avoiding Travel Problems by Working With a Travel Agency

*Read my Disclosure
Your vacation should be a relaxing time without worrying about missing connections, having a layover, or getting scammed. When traveling somewhere that you are unfamiliar with, the locals may attempt to take advantage of the fact that you are a tourist and don’t know the local customs. When you make plans with a Wake Forest travel agency, your agent helps you understand what you may face. However, your travel agent helps you avoid more than scams. When you have a travel agent, you have a troubleshooter, to help you around problems and other issues that pop up to make your vacation miserable instead of enjoyable.

Blast Zone Crocodile Isle Inflatable Water Park w/ Dual Slides Review and #Giveaway

        There are very few children I have come across which do not like bouncing.  Bouncing on your bed, the couch, on a trampoline, through puddles, into the pool, and pretty much any where you can think of.  I am sure you can agree with me, you've done it too!  I also know most children love the water, especially during the summer.  Of course being in the pool is great but even beaches, lakes, splash pads, and toys like slip-n-slides or sprinklers become irresistible to most!

Groupon #Coupons for an Exciting Summer

        Not only do I love the thrill of the hunt for a deal but I desperately need to save money on things for my family.  We live in a time where most people are struggling or penny pinching.  I love this way of thinking as it isn't just with the purpose of saving money but utilizing every resource we have without being as wasteful as we have in the past.  Being that I have been a frequent traveler in the past for both my career and as a hobby, I still continue to love to travel.  It just isn't as easy again in such a time where every penny spent can affect how my family lives.

Road-Tripping Abroad? Tips for Driving in a Foreign Country

When it comes to going on vacation, a car should be as essential as your sunscreen! So many people limit themselves to staying in one small area – a resort or the local city centre – but aside from not discovering those hidden gems a little further away, prices of everything from hotels to restaurants are wildly inflated in tourist hot-spots.
