Yum
 This is a great Holiday Gift idea, the LeapFrog Number Lovin' Oven!
 **I received a free product to facilitate my review as part of the LeapFrog Mom Squad ambassador program. I was not required to write a positive review nor was I compensated in any other way. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the FTC Regulations.
 I love to cook! If you have been around my website you might have noticed the "Recipe" tab above with all of my creations through the years. Since I spend a lot of time in the kitchen I always include my son whilst cooking. Now some things he cannot do as he is still younger like operating the stove and oven. 
 LeapFrog Number Lovin Oven is the perfect solution to my cookin' kiddo!

Nu Skin Clear Action Skin kit

Yum
Before my month of travel I started using a new skin regiment kit. "The Nu Skin Clear Action is a comprehensive system to manage the full range of effects acne can have on your skin. Which includes Clear Action Cleanser, Clear Action Toner, Clear Action Day Treatment, and Clear Action Night Treatment". I knew I was going to be taking several travel photos to publish in magazines and online websites. I wanted my skin to be at it's best. 
I have combination skin and lovely hormone inspired breakouts. I also have scaring and dark spots after a break out. After going over some of the skin treatment in this kit I was drawn to try it whilst I was traveling.

Macy's Rwanda Path to Peace project

Yum
 "When you look at the gorgeous hand-woven baskets sold on line and in Macy’s stores as part of the Rwanda Path to Peace program, it’s easy to see them solely as objects of beauty. It’s hard to imagine the journey the baskets and the women who make them have been on. In fact, each basket represents a journey towards reconciliation. 
“This post is sponsored by Everywhere Agency; however, all thoughts and opinions expressed are my own.“
In 1994, we in America were totally unaware that a mass slaughter was taking place in Rwanda, a tiny country in the heart of Africa. In just three months, nearly a million people, 20% of the nation’s population, was massacred when tribal hatred between the Hutus and Tutsis turned into ethnic slaughter. Neighbor killed neighbor in one of the worst genocides in human history".

California day in the life of my Kia Soul

Yum
I have been preparing for my California trip ever since my dinner with Hewlett Packard in NYC in July! I live in New York but have never been out west, let alone the West coast, to sunny San Diego! All sorts of freaking out and excited emotions have run through my veins as I prepared for this trip. All my hard work and dreams are starting to come to life. Travel for a living!
I had to address some "must have's", how am I getting there? How will I get around? The idea of driving across country did not really seem appealing so I booked my flights and started a search for rentals. I booked a Kia Soul without any real information about it.
 It would get me from point A to point B and was gas efficient, yep works for me! After 7 hours of flying I was welcomed to San Diego by this "Alien green" beauty!! 
Never in my life did I ever think I would drive a shiny new car.

Defy gravity with the Wubblex

Yum
 **I received a free product to review. I was not required to write a positive review nor was I compensated in any other way. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the FTC Regulations.
We were lucky to have the Wubblex ball in our home this past week. At first glance this doesn't look like a whole lot but it claims to have some of the best fun for kids an parents. I don't know about you but I love blowing Bubbles for small children! They smile, laugh and it is just easy entertainment with fun & fond memories. The only thing is the bubbles pop and blow away. Not to mention after blowing some bubbles you decided "ok", time for a break. I love the idea of a bubble you can inflate and let them have fun with!
It is super easy to inflate with the helium. 
Hopefully you caught are "how-to" on Periscope @westnewyorker!
