Why I Conture

This is a sponsored post in partnership with Conture Skin Care. All opinions are my own.

 

When I was a little girl I rarely wore sunscreen and when I was in college I visited the tanning salon on a regular basis. I’ll admit I wasn’t very health conscious when it came to my skin, but it’s never to late to start caring for your skin.

Now that it’s been a few months since I first started using the Conture Kinetic Skin Toning System ,  I wanted to give you an update!

 

 

I love Conture’s wrinkle fighting properties and know they will come in handy for helping me take good care of my skin. As I mentioned in my previous post, for me it’s not just about beauty, but also to be aware of changes in my skin and really focus on skin health.

I’m still enjoying using the skin toning system, however being busy means I don’t have time to use my Conture every morning and night. I do however always use the Conture Kinetic Serums on a daily basis.

I really love the serums because they give my skin the moisture it needs during winter months, not to mention it goes on smoothly. I love that my skin feels soft and not greasy after I use the product.

While the Conture System is a bit of an investment, if you are someone who is spending several hundred dollars on spa treatments and facials this product will definitely save you money in between services. If you’re someone who likes to focus on self care in the comfort of your home and want to try a few products before making a larger commitment I strongly recommend the Kinetic AM & PM kit.

I personally would love to try the Kinetic Remedy Eye Treatment and it’s price point is in the range I normally pay for similar products.

Make Dull Skin Bright This Winter – Conture Kinetic Skin Toning System

This is a sponsored post in partnership with Conture Skin Care. All opinions are my own.

 

Though it’s taken a while to actually feel like Winter is on it’s way, I think here in North Carolina it’s safe to say that we are feeling the cool air. Even though I love the cooler weather it also brings along some not so great things like dryness that makes my body feel tight and itchy and right about now my face is feeling the effects of the weather change.

I’m noticing dry patches, and breakouts and would love to have clear, glowing skin this holiday season.

I’ve been given the opportunity to try out a product that is painless and something I can do in the comfort of my own home that will help my skin look radiant and more smooth.

Over the next 30 days I’ll be using the Conture Kinetic Skin Toning System. I’m excited to see what the results will be and hope you are too.

Bouncing Around with Sky High Sports Charlotte

Before school started the B girls and I were invited to bounce our hearts out at Sky High Sports in Charlotte. I must admit this was our first time ever at a trampoline park and… we LOVED it. The girls had so much fun with the many activities within the building I secretly wish they had a location close to our house.

We not only had a great time but we think you should check it out too. Sky High Sports features a freestyle jump court, a foam pit with rope swings, laser tag, ropes course and more. The girls loved the freestyle court and foam pit and Miss A even got a chance to play some laser tag.

As a mom I love the diversity of a place like Sky High Sports. It’s great for taking the kids for a day of play, perfect for bouncing away some energy on a rainy day, fun for a playdate with a group of friends, and they also offer birthday/event packages not to mention field trips and fundraising nights for your school or homeschool group.

Overall the staff at Sky High Sports was very well trained and attentive watching for safety among the kids who were bouncing and playing. I wasn’t worried about the girls playing in different areas of the facility in fact, Sky High offers an open lounge area with televisions to check in on your children if you’re chasing more than one around.

This local venue caters to families with children of all ages and even has Airobics classes for adults. We love that we can have friends of all ages come play with us and know that everyone will have a good time.

We can’t wait to go bounce at Sky High Sports again, maybe you can join us!!!

CVS Curbside Pickup

This is a sponsored post in partnership with CVS/pharmacy.

If you’re a busy parent I guarantee that saving time is a top priorities. During the summer months finding ways to make errands shorter not only help me spend more fun time with my girls but also helps leaves me less stressed.

Ever find yourself dreading going in the store? Yeah me too! Sometimes you have a sleeping baby you really don’t want to wake up, sometimes it’s a battle to justify getting everyone in and out of the store, and other times I’m under the weather and just wish I could just stay in my car with my sniffles.

Whatever reason you dread going into the store help is here.

I recently discovered CVS/pharmacy’s new Curbside Pickup, a really cool, time-saving feature.

Here’s How It Works:

Head to the CVS Mobile app or the CVS website. Find a location near you and follow the instructions for Curbside Pickup to start shopping.

 

CVSPharmacy App

 

After processing your order CVS will text you that your order is ready and send you a pickup pass to use once you get to the store. (You can also track your order.)

 

CVS Curbside Pickup Processing MommyB

 

Typical transactions may take around an hour to fill.

Once you receive the text that your order is ready head to the CVS you placed your order with and find the CVS Curbside Sign like this:

 

CVS Curbside Pickup Sign MommyBKnowsBest

 

Then you wait for your order to be brought out to your vehicle.

The CVS employee scans the pickup pass and your transaction is complete.

Quick Details:

· The service is currently available in 3 select regions (with plans to roll out later on): Charlotte, Atlanta and San Francisco

· To use the service, customers can choose from thousands of non-prescription items through either the CVS Mobile App or website, and have them delivered curbside at a local CVS Pharmacy location within an hour

· No markups or added costs (LOVE this!!!)

· You can link your ExtraCare number to your CVS.com account and earn quarterly ExtraBucks Rewards and receive weekly ad sale prices on CVS Curbside Pickup orders (please note: item pricing will vary by store)

My Experience:

 

CVS Curbside Pickup Purchase MommyB

 

The service is awesome. It’s easy to shop and add your items if you know what you’re looking for. You can check out their featured items, search by department, or the search bar allows you to find exactly what you’re looking for.

During my use I put an item in my cart that wasn’t available at my local store. The system texted me right away letting me know I had to update my order and the store even called to clarify. Though they’re working out a few bugs I know I get the service of a live person at the store who is working hard to ensure my satisfaction.

I realized a couple of the items I had in my cart were on sale either with coupons from my ExtraCare Card or the store’s regular sale prices. Yippee!!

 

CVS Express Pickup MommyB

 

 

After placing my order I received the text it was ready within about 10 minutes.

 

CVS Curbside Pickup Ready MommyB

 

We hopped in the car (really I could have taken them without shoes or in their jammies since we didn’t have to get out of the car, hooray!!!) Once we pulled into the CVS parking lot my sister timed how long we waited for our items and it was under a minute!!! I was pretty impressed, and the service was excellent.

Seriously, doing this every time I shop would be a huge blessing. I love that CVS is starting this service and hope that more places follow suit. Now I can grab sunscreen on our way to the park if I forget it or order medicine for a headache and snacks for the kids while I’m running errands. Because we all know even the most well-behaved kiddos sometimes have a hard time “running into the store” and sometimes we just “don’t wanna”.

10 Things I Heart in Winter

I know it’s not “officially” Winter yet, however the things I love all have to do with Winter or the Winter season, so I’m posting my 10 Things I Heart in Winter.

10 Things I Heart Winter MommyB

Here we go!

1. Warm coffee, yummo!!! Here are my favorite varieties:

    • On-the-go –  Starbucks, (My favorite is Hazelnut Macchiato with soy milk)
    • At home – Real Cup Coffee, they have awesome coffees and teas that work great with my Keurig and both hubby and I love. I personally love flavored coffee (see above) and for the Winter season they have a great Winterfest flavor.

Real Coffee MommyB

    • For stocking stuffers – Craft Coffee’s Coffee DNA Project™, if you know a coffee lover this great coffee subscription features coffees you probably won’t find anywhere else in a great sampler size (not too small not too big). Answer some questions, customize or get their recommendations.

2. The Spirit of Giving.

I reviewed and posted about this awesome book last year – The Sparkle Box Book Review and we fell in love. Without giving any of the storyline away the book encourages families to do for others. It not only gives a great incentive to have a giving spirit, but it reminds us what Christmas is all about. I love seeing our sparkling box this time of year and love that my girls desire to fill it up with good deeds for others. Hope you check it out!

3. Smiling Faces, Fun Experiences, and Cute Pets.

Where do all those things appear?? Instagram. Yep, I heart Instagram. Probably my most loved version of social media. It’s less controversial than Facebook can be at times and rather than all the words on Twitter I can see fun, sweet, beautiful pictures that embody the lives of family, friends, and coworkers (aka other bloggers and pr companies).

Recently I received an opportunity to check out #Cube™. Basically it’s a large 8” square LCD touch screen display, that taps into Instagram. #Cube™ delivers real-time and instant continuous delivery of a stream of photos and video clips, has built-in Wi-Fi, free wireless software updates, and is rechargeable. You can put #Cube™ anywhere in your house and move it around easily because it’s wireless (and really cool too.)

If you know someone who would love this as a gift, or want to buy it for yourself (that’s okay too), head to hashtagcube.com/#cube and for a $15#cube discount use coupon code: CUBE71 at checkout (affiliate link).

4. Christmas Cards

I love making our Christmas Cards each year, but even more so I love receiving them. We’re thankful for any cards we receive this time of year, but I’m especially partial to those with pictures of beautiful families, awesome couples, fun kids, awesome babies, and sweet pets. This month we’ve already received a bunch and I can’t wait to see new ones that come each day and hang them up.

5. Elderberry

Each time we get sick (which I feel like for a family of four isn’t too often, but often enough), I have a couple of dear friends who remind me the power of Elderberry. Well just last month I decided to get on the Elderberry train and I’m so glad I did! I didn’t realize all of the great benefits of Elderberry especially when you’re fighting an illness.

Norm’s Farms (locally in NC but ships worldwide), has an AMAZING selection of Elderberry products, that we used and loved (okay the girls didn’t like the taste but I thought it was similar to cranberry and loved it). My favorite product is their Elderberry Extract which is great for boosting your immune system, and has 2 times the amount of antioxidants than blueberries. They also have some great jellies and jams you’ll want to check out as well.

Norms Farms Elderberry MommyB

I also found some Elderberry products in health stores like lozenges that included zinc which I’ve heard is also another great, homeopathic way to treat a cough/cold. So don’t put it off like me, try Elderberry and then come back and thank me when you fall in love too!

6. Gettin’ Crafty.

Now that my girls are older, they want more hands-on activities and learning opportunities that a coloring book just won’t achieve. We often keep recycled materials in a bin in their “kids’ office” but we also buy science experiment kits, and craft sets.

We were able to try CreatorBox, a built-it-yourself subscription box that includes a new toy each month. The box comes complete with instructions and quality materials and feature some really cool things you wouldn’t normally think to create like a trebuchet/catapult, paper airplane launcher, and smart house.

For us, this was a great project for the girls to do with DaddyB because I often work on arts, crafts and projects with them, but due to DaddyB’s work schedule the quality time he does have is on the weekends. We saved our catapult for the girls to put together with him and they had a blast with it! I highly recommend this for great family bonding, and learning too!

7. Holiday Shopping

We don’t go big for Christmas presents but we do buy each of our girls 3 gifts (want, need, read) and this year we also bought most of our family 3 gifts as well (one thoughtful gift, one gift card, and one handmade gift). While at a recent BJ’s Holiday event, my assistant Lil’ C and I were introduced to quite a few great gift sets and learned a little more about BJ’s Wholesale as well.

Though we were members for several years, mostly buying diapers and paper products, I never realized how much larger BJ’s Wholesale is than their competitors, carrying more than double typically. They also have a great charitable foundation that gives back to the community and each store also participates in several outreach opportunities throughout the season including an angel tree. Did you know that???

Here are some of the great gifts for two-legged family and friends (and some four legged ones too):

BJs Holiday MommyB

 

8. Fun Movies

I love fun winter and Christmas movies, don’t you? The problem with fun movies though is that there are so many to choose from, so I’m gonna try to keep my list simple. Try is the operative word people. In no particular order:

  • Elf, for obvious reasons.
  • Iesodo’s new JOY themed video
  • The Grinch (good lessons in here)
  • Home Alone (and Home Alone 2 but if I have to pick, I’d go with the first one)
  • Any Veggie Tales Christmas, Merry Larry and the True Light of Christmas, Saint Nicholas is a great one to teach your kiddos about who St. Nicholas really was, and the Ultimate Christmas Collection has a bunch of great holiday DVDs in one great set.

9. Goodies

Yep, it’s the season of candy and sweets, cookie exchanges, and delicious stocking stuffers. One of my favorite places to pick up sweet treats for my family is CVS/pharmacy. They have the usual treats like candy canes, gold coins (which I always put in the girls’ stockings), and other great candy bars, nuts, and trail mixes to name a few, plus the sales and prices are….awesome.

CVS Gold Emblem Select MommyB

10. You! 

The biggest thing I love this Winter is you!! I always try to remind you, my readers, that I’m so thankful and blessed to have you stopping by my site, reading, and sharing my posts. I hope that you have a great winter, a Merry Christmas and of course an awesome New Year. Thank you for being so amazing for yet another year end. I heart you!!!

 

 

 

This is not a sponsored post, however I have worked with some of the above brands in various ways and received some product to showcase on my blog. Any and all opinions expressed in the above post are my own honest thoughts. Yours may vary. 

Protect Your Smile and Enamel Health as You Age

This is a sponsored post on behalf of CVS/pharmacy and Colgate Enamel Health all opinions are my own.

It’s a fact that adult oral care and protecting our enamel is vital for a healthy smile.

There are so many abrasive foods and drinks that wear down our tooth enamel on a daily basis that it’s really important to be mindful of how to maintain our clean, strong smiles.

How to Protect Your Smile and Enamel Health MommyB #healthyteeth #colgatehealthyenamel

 

As a coffee and soda drinker I love the NEW Colgate Enamel Health toothpaste and toothbrush because together, they help to replenish natural calcium and polish tooth enamel. Healthy enamel doesn’t just look good, it also helps create a smoother surface so germs are less likely to stick as well.

Being an adult undergoing teeth straightening treatment my teeth have also been subject to a lot of wear, so anything I can do to whiten and protect my teeth during and after treatment you can count me in.

Colgate Enamel Health at CVSpharmacy MommyB #healthyteeth #colgateenamelhealth

 

It’s easy to shopping for essentials like toothbrushes and toothpaste at my local CVS/pharmacy. I love that it’s not only a convenient one-stop shop for everything my family needs, but CVS also makes it easy to save money just by using your ExtraCare Card. With ExtraCare, you’ll earn 2% back on your purchases, {paid out quarterly in the form of ExtraBucks}.

If you’ve been a long-time reader you’ll know I’m someone who loves to write about oral health and saving money, both important things to keep our homes and families healthy and happy.

I’d love for one lucky MommyBKnowsBest.com reader to win their own Colgate Enamel Health prize pack featuring the 360 Enamel Health Toothbrush and Colgate Enamel Health Toothpaste.

Breaking News – CVS/pharmacy Goes Tobacco-Free and Stops Selling Tobacco Products

I can’t say I’m not elated about the HUGE stance CVS/pharmacy is taking by not selling tobacco products starting this Fall. As the daughter of smoking parents, they know how I feel, and while I know it’s a hard habit to break, I love the reasons behind CVS/pharmacy’s big tobacco free decision and look forward to a healthier America and am so glad a great brand is taking a HUGE step in the right direction.

CVS Tobacco Free MommyB

CVS Caremark’s corporate mission is focused on helping put people on a path to better health. This morning, CVS Caremark announced that they will stop selling cigarettes and other tobacco products at their more than 7,600 CVS/pharmacy stores by October 1, 2014.

“Now more than ever, pharmacies are on the front lines of health care, becoming more involved in chronic disease management to help patients with high blood pressure, high cholesterol and diabetes. All of these conditions are made worse by smoking, which is the leading cause of premature disease and death in the U.S., with more than 480,000 deaths annually. Because of this, this is the right thing for us to do and something we need to do for our customers.

Our decision to stop selling tobacco products is consistent with the positions taken by the American Medical Association, American Heart Association, American Cancer Society, American Lung Association and American Pharmacists Association that have all publicly opposed tobacco sales in retail outlets with pharmacies.”

In addition to removing tobacco products and cigarettes for sale in their stores, this Spring CVS Caremark will be launching a national smoking cessation program with the goal of helping millions of Americans quit smoking.

Big thumbs up for this initiative and who knows maybe other drugstores will follow suit and help the 7 out of 10 smokers that want to stop smoking.

Here’s to a healthier America. Mom & Dad if you’re reading this you know what I’m thinking…….

 

The opinions and thoughts expressed in this post are my own. I was not compensated in any way by CVS/pharmacy to write about this. Because it is a topic that is personal and lays heavy on my heart I chose to bring this message to you. I work with CVS/pharmacy and believe they are a great brand and have been a customer for years and will continue to be especially if their direction continues to help others get healthy and stay healthy.

NERGIA – The Healthier Energy Supplement for Busy Moms

This is a sponsored post all opinions are my own.

Have you ever been called, “SuperMom” because you’re the mom that goes above and beyond when it comes to your job? Do people ever ask you, “how do you do it all??” While we know that none of us really “do it all”, it definitely takes long days and loads of energy to keep up with our children, our spouses, our homes, and possibly jobs outside the home as well {paid and unpaid}. Let’s face it, we live pretty active lives.

Sometimes I joke that my girls have surplus energy because they’re taking it from me, but in reality, since I write at night {it just may be morning by now, shhh!}, and am mom during the day, I know my energy deficiency comes from lack of proper sleep. Where does your energy deficiency lie??

Of course I highly recommend getting as much sleep as possible, and there’s no reviewing that on the blog it’s just a fact that our bodies need sleep, but sometimes even when we do get enough sleep, there are other reasons and factors why we may need a little extra energy in our lives. Sometimes our bodies just need a little refresher or an extra boost, especially if we are active and on-the-go all day non-stop.

For each person, their pick-me-up of choice may be different, but here’s a great, 100% natural alternative to energy shots and other energy supplements that are currently on the market that you may want to consider.

ENERGIA Natural Energy Shots

Meet America’s Naturals’ 100% Natural Energy shot. NERGIA contains organic, sustainably harvested ingredients including: Guarana seeds, Açaí berries and Catuaba bark. Instead of using preservatives, they pasteurize their product, avoiding artificial sweeteners and artificial colors. Not to mention that NERGIA uses recyclable glass bottles ensuring safe consumption for you.

Check out what health-conscious, active women are saying about their experience with NERGIA in this video: http://vimeo.com/78847721

If you’re looking for a natural, healthier energy boost for your day, visit www.nergia.com. NERGIA can currently be purchased at competitive pricing with other energy supplements at GNC.com and GNC stores in New York City, but will be coming to a GNC and other local stores near you.

What activity or time of day makes you feel the most tired?

SuperMomsDrinkNERGIA

 

This is a sponsored post in conjunction with NERGIA. All opinions and thoughts expressed in this post are my own. Since I write about things that are related to my family and my husband and I both need lots of energy I thought this would be a great, natural product to share with you. Your opinions may vary.

Review Twinlab CleanSeries Whey Protein Isolate

Twinlab Clean Series Whey Protein Isolate Review

Since deciding to get in shape for my wedding almost 9 years ago, I’ve had more brands and flavors of whey protein than you could imagine. More recently though, I haven’t tried a new product as I’ve been sticking with my usuals. So, I was interested in trying out Twinlab’s new Clean Series Whey Protein Isolate.

Packaging
Twinlab Clean Series Whey Protein Isolate ReviewI’ve used many Twinlab products over the years. Their once recognizable gray and black tubs of powder have been re-branded and the Clean Series packing sports a sleeker looking silver and orange theme. Across the board, consumers are more discerning about what goes in their bodies and it makes sense that this sentiment would affect the nutritional product world. Labels stating that the protein is Non-GMO, Certified Gluten Free, and even that it’s been tested for banned substances will insure athletes and average workout joes and jills alike that they’re getting a safe, quality product. It’s also noted that it’s low in lactose and has a low glycemic index which are two more positives.

What’s in it?
I received a 1.5 pound tub of Clean Series Whey Protein Isolate. It has 21 scoops of protein at 23 grams per serving. Each serving has 110 calories, only 4 grams of carbohydrates, and 0 grams of fat. Whey Protein Isolate (from milk) is the very first ingredient. This is a good indicator that you’re not getting a lot of filler and you’re getting the best type of protein. Isolate proteins are easier for your body to absorb than whey protein concentrates and other whey blends.

Price
Clean Series Whey Protein Isolate is $44.99 on the Twinlab website. GNC’s website has it for $29.99 which is likely closer to what you’d see it for in stores. That’s a bit steep in my opinion for 21 servings, but I will say that the work put into the testing, certifications, and the bonuses of ease of digestion may make it worth it for some.

How Does it Taste?
I tried the Vanilla Wave flavor of the Clean Series Whey Protein Isolate. It was very light and not too sweet. It also wasn’t very flavorful; which at times can be a good thing. Flavor often means adding sugar and can also make the drink feel heavier. It isn’t meant to be a meal replacement shake as much as other products out there, so I thought the light taste was right on par with what I expected. It’s neutral vanilla flavoring make it a strong candidate to go into a fruit smooth in place of yogurt or milk.

I had it before workouts and first thing in the morning since I typically want something with more carbs after work outs. It’s a good overall product that I’d recommend for those looking for a quality protein from an established brand that’s focused on creating products you can trust.
