Google To The Rescue for Father's Day! #GiftsForAll

This post was created in collaboration with Google. All opinions are our own.
We received products to help facilitate this review.

I don't know what's happening in life, but I've become very bad at remembering what day of the week it is. So Bad that Father’s Day crept up on us and I wasn't even ready! Thank goodness that Google has created some of the Best Products for those dads who are over the Tools, Ties, and T-shirts.

For the Dad who wants Versatility when Drawing, creating, or even Surfing the web… It’s the Google PixelBook! This gorgeous Laptop turns into a Tablet, is Touch Screen, can get into Tent-Mode for when you want to watch movies and a whole lot more. June 17th (Father's Day) is the final day where You can save $250 on a Pixelbook at Best Buy, Amazon, and the Google Store. The deal is only valid on the model with 8GB with an i5 processor and 128GB SSD.

For the Dad who Loves to capture each and every precious moment, but finds himself truly missing out on being IN the moment... The Google Clips. The Google Clips is a lightweight, hands-free camera that captures life’s beautiful and spontaneous moments with the help of machine learning and motion detection. It’s not just about them smiling, looking at the camera, or posing on request (near-impossible with kids and pets who don’t want to sit still!). You may want to get your daughter jumping up and down in excitement, or your son kissing your cat. It’s all about the little moments and emotions that you can't stage or coordinate ahead of time. Clips' improved intelligence can help dad capture more of the candid and fleeting moments that happen in between those posed frames we are all so familiar with.

Lastly, For the Dads who like Music and need the right tool to give them all the answers... It's The Google Home. Whether You decide to get the original, the Mini or the Max, You can bet that Dad will be Over The Moon! Dad can get the latest weather forecast, traffic, finance, sports and so much more. He can even listen to animal noises at your child's request. He won't miss any more reminders or calendar appointments thanks to the built-in Google Assistant that we've all come to love in our Android devices! They start at $39 after special promotions available almost everywhere.

I Hope this quick Guide to Google Products helps you get Dad the Best Gift Ever! Comment below and let us know which product Made By Google, you went with...

Top Notch Awesomeness At The New York Baby Show! #NYBSBloggerLounge

We were invited to this event as media. Opinions are our own.

One of the most awaited baby shows in NYC is The New York Baby Show that's hosted at the Pier Every year in May. I was Invited to the show and given the opportunity to hang at the Blogger lounge with my family, as well as my favorite bloggers and hosts. We had hours to thoroughly check out and explore many brands and though it was hard, I've chosen our TOP 3 Picks from this year's New York Baby Show! Here's what they are...

1) Lunii My Fabulous Storyteller

If your child is like mine, they LOVE to go on literacy adventures. Reading creates a whole new world of adventure for them to explore and this product allows your and your child to become the authors. The way the Lunii works is that it allows kids to help create the story by choosing various elements—the hero, Place/world, companion and an object. This is achieved by toggling the dial and pushing buttons, as the illuminated silhouettes are displayed on the face of the storyteller. Once the elements of the story have been chosen, the Storyteller narrates the tale that has been customized by your child. A knob on the side controls the volume. We read stories each night so this will be a fun new nightly routine. There's NO wifi or Screens so it won't affect the child's sleep. This product is currently a MOMA exclusive and retails for $69. There are48 English Stories included, More available for download and in other languages.

2) Axis Backpack by Petunia Pickle Bottom

The Axis Backpack is so gorgeously designed. It has a really modern look, but with a brand new Disney twist. The Axis Backpack is a versatile, spacious bag that features a front zippered pocket, comfortable straps, and separated top and bottom main compartments! A rep called this the best Toddler bag ever. You can use the insulated bottom section to store valuables or to keep all the kids' snacks fresh, and also take advantage of the spacious top space to keep all your go-to goodies, wipes, and needs within easy reach. Available in Winnie The Pooh and Mickey / Minnie Prints.

3) Kinder By Nature Products

Kinder By Nature is a brand created in the UK, who have deemed themselves Carbon Conscious. Their unscented baby wipes are made from natural aloe vera and purified water. They don’t contain any alcohol, parabens, lanolin, SLS, SLES, petrochemicals, Phenoxyethanol, benzoates or anything that might harm your baby’s delicate skin. Both of their wipes are made to be Biodegradable, compostable and chlorine free cloth. They also carry squeaky clean toiletry products that are specifically formatted for children with Eczema and sensitive skin. They are a 100% unscented, fragrance and perfume FREE formula. You can find these on Amazon and at Walmart.

There you have it. Though many of the products at the show were truly amazing, These were the 3 that caught my eyes in this current stage of life! We can't wait to head back to the show next year. A special thanks to Momtrends for providing us with admission and gift bags at the NYBS.

Which of these are your favorite?

Amazingly Informative Southern Style Sip & See with Walmart Baby!

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Walmart. 
The opinions and text are all mines.

Children need a lot. They need Diapers, Wipes, Carseats, Strollers, snacks, food, etc. As they pass a new milestone, they require newer and different things. There's truly one place that I shop at where I am sure to find everything I need! That Place is Walmart...

The Truth about Playing with Enormous Zits... Ewww!

This post was created in partnership with NSI International. All opinions are our own.

Yes, You read my title correctly. It may give some of you a queasy feeling, but others may genuinely want to know what the heck I'm talking about. In today's society, people love popping pimples and zits. There's a calming and addictive effect of this trend and it's growing as we speak! (The Trend, not the pimples .... or both?) Did you know that popping pimples actually relieves stress? I guess this is why companies have started to create similarly disgusting, yet satisfying toys like this one... Zits (EWWW!) Pop n' Play Pimples.
