Kohl's Truly Cares: Disney Pixar Collection‏ - #KohlsCares

There are a few things in life that I love. One being family and another being these two companies that I'm sharing with you today. Kohl's has been one of our favorite store to shop at since we moved to the state of Colorado. When mommy lived in NY the nearest store was too far away so all shopping was done online. Now can you believe our store is only a five minute drive away? Yes it's really that close by and my brother just loves shopping there. Most of his school shopping was actually done in that store. Now who doesn't love Disney? Let me tell you a little secret. This year is going to be my first year going to Disney World and I just can't wait for it to happen. Pair Disney and Pixar together and now we're talking about some of my favorite films to date. Now imagine our surprise when we found out that Kohls Cares has partnered with Disney Pixar to bring the Disney Pixar collection to you. These are available for a limited time only through April 4th both online and in stores nationwide.

It's a delight to make and the kids will enjoy having not to eat the actual vegetable I'm sure.

As a mom who've gone through the teenage years with one older child, and with a 14 year old son in the house I can speak from experience that things aren't as easy as it may seem on TV. You know the Brady Bunch scenario where everything is peachy and nice. It doesn't happen in the average household. You’ve heard from other parents that teens can be unmanageable and difficult, making you dread this stage even more. Although there’s no denying that the teenager stage can be difficult, it isn’t unmanageable. By having rules in place and giving your teen some freedoms, your entire family will survive this stage. Here are some of our tried and true tips that can help you deal with your teenager.

Cool Mint Body Butter

At the beginning of the year I shared with you our Cool Mint Body Scrub, and I was supposed to follow up with our Cool Mint Body Butter. It's been a post long in the making and believe me I've wanted to post it about a million times, but I like to say better late than never. If you loved our body scrub, you are most definitely going to love the butter since they go hand in hand. The smell of mint is oh so relaxing and will make for the perfect bedtime routine, and believe it or not it is also super easy to make. There's nothing more relaxing than a bath that smells of mint and then lathering up with a nice butter that smells just as great. I know you'll love it and the best thing is you know exactly what you're putting on your body. No ingredients that you can't read or don't understand. What's not to love?
