Keep your lips smooth and silky for the school year with @Chapstick!

Most students are back in school by now and the official beginning of fall has started! When sending my daughter back, I made sure her backpack was stocked with the essentials like pencils, folders and things of that nature. I also added some things you might have not thought of like ChapStick®, the perfect must-have addition to school bags!

Keep your lips smooth and silky for the school year with Chapstick!

E and I occasionally suffer from chapped lips usually during the fall and winter seasons. Let’s face it though, you can experience chapping during any season and anytime throughout the school year. So what are some ways to prevent and treat chapped lips? Check out some ways below!

Ways to prevent and treat chapped lips during the school year!

  • Drink water! Drinking plenty of water keeps you and your lips hydrated! I always make sure E has a bottle of water in her backpack.
  • Exfoliate dry lips! I make my own sugar scrub using a tablespoon of brown sugar with a drop of honey. This is perfect option for preteens and teeangers as well as adults. I them rub the mixture onto my lips to get rid of the dry skin.  You can also use a wet washcloth to rub your lips.
  • Use a humidifier! Use a humidifier while you sleep during colder months when you have the heat on. This will help keep your lips moisturized.
  • Stay away from salty and spicy foods! They can dry out your lips.
  • Use a lip balm! as I mentioned above, we use ChapStick® Lip Balm to keep our lips smooth and silky for the school year.

Smooth and silky lips for the school year with Chapstick!

ChapStick® is a skincare staple that helps keep lips smooth and silky all school year long. They have us covered with lip balms that contain SPF and more. One of my favorites that is ChapStick® Moisturizer which softens and protects my lips and contains SPF 12, providing UVB protection! The hydrating formula contains aloe and vitamin E plus other moisturizing ingredients.

Let’s talk fall premieres! Which ones did you make sure to catch? Are there any that you’re looking forward to watching?

Fall 2016 Premieres: What are you watching? #FiOSNY

Once my kids are in bed, I’m kicking back and watching a little TV. Fall is my favorite time of year to catch season premieres of the shows I love and new shows that I look forward to giving a chance. Here are some premieres I made sure to check out so far and others that I can’t wait to start!

What I’m watching:

American Horror Story
There was SO much mystery building up to this season. I have to admit, I haven’t been able to get into AHS since Murder House (the first season). I decided to to give the premiere a watch and so glad I did! I’m actually really excited to see what this season has in store. Many AHS alum are back such as Sarah Paulson, Angela Bassett, Kathy Bates and Evan Peters. You’ll also see some new faces including Cuba Gooding Jr. and Adina Porter. Catch American Horror Story on Wednesdays at 10PM ET/PT on FX! If you’re a FiOS customer and miss any episodes, Watch them On Demand or on Fox NOW!

Bob’s Burgers
This is a show that E and I love to watch. It’s rated TV-PG and a show that we bond over every Sunday night! Bob’s Burgers airs Sundays on FOX. If you miss an episode, catch up On Demand or Fox NOW!

Fall 2016 Premieres: What are you watching? #FiOSNY

The Walking Dead
Negan was introduced last season and viewers were left with so many questions after the finale! So, which character do you think was killed off? My guess is Abraham but we’ll all have to wait and see when the season starts! The Walking Dead premieres on Sunday, October 23rd at 10PM ET/PT on AMC! Binge watch past episodes or catch up on last season with FiOS On Demand!

Fall 2016 Premieres: What are you watching? #FiOSNY

New Series!

American Housewife
American Housewife stars Katy Mixon who you might know from Mike & Molly or Eastbound & Down. The series follows Katie, an average wife and mom who tries to stand out among the housewives in her hometown of Westport, Connecticut. The teasers looked funny and the Katy’s character seems like one I might befriend in real life. American Housewife premieres on Tuesday, October 11th at 8:30ET/9:30CT on ABC!

The Exorcist
Geena Davis is back and starring as Angela Rance, a mother who senses something very wrong in her home and enlists the help of two priests.

Feed Your Baby Ingredients that are Simple, Pure, and Honest with Sprout Pouches! #SproutBaby

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Sprout Organic Foods . All opinions are 100% mine.

Like a lot of little ones, Aric enjoys eating baby food pouches. As a mom, I love how convenient they are and how they’re perfect for when we’re on-the-go. Babies “R” Us is my one stop shop for all of the things I need for my little ones including food! They have quite the selection of our favorite baby food pouch brand, Sprout Organic Foods.

Sprout Baby Food Pouches

There’s plenty of reasons why as a parent, I love Sprout food pouches! They offer delicious blends of whole fruits, vegetables, and grains which gives babies greater exposure to wholesome foods. Sprout also only uses ingredients like those that would be found in your own kitchen which means no preservatives and nothing artificial!

Research shows that developing a love of healthy foods early on helps foster healthy eating habits for life. We’re encouraging those healthy habits by providing my little man with Sprout food pouches which contain ingredients that are real, honest and pure. I want only the best for my baby!

What’s in your baby’s food?

During a recent shopping trip to Babies “R” Us, I picked up some of my little guy’s favorite Sprout Baby food flavors. While there, I also decided to compare the ingredients to some other brand pouches. Usually the first six ingredients listed on the packaging are the most important. They are also the highest proportions. When comparing, I noticed that a few brands have ascorbic acid and other preservatives. This is listed at the top of the ingredients and not something I want my son ingesting. I love that with Sprout Baby food pouch ingredients are the same on the front of the packaging as it is on the back. If the front reads, “Pears, Spinach, and Prunes”, You bet the back label is going to state the same!

Sprout Pouches consist of whole Fruits, veggies and grains. They contain no GMOs, concentrates or preservatives. What you see on the front of packaging is exactly what you’ll see on the back. Learn about Sprout’s Mission & Values  on their website.

The Challenge!

I challenge you to do what I did and compare the labels of other brands to Sprout Organic baby food pouches. See if the ingredients listed on the front of the packaging are the same as what’s listed on the back. You might be surprised, maybe even shocked at what you find!

Babies “R” Us Promo!

Make sure to visit your local Babies “R” Us from September 9th through October 2nd so you can receive a $10 gift card with a $25 Sprout purchase!
