My Kid's Style: Boden. Primark. Museum Tee.

Before school season started, I worked on a campaign with Boden Mini and I'm still obsessing over their clothes. Since then, I've had a few more guilt trips back to the site to get a some more of their amazing clothes. That day we went to the museum, Darius wore his pair of Boden Slim denim jeans with leather hi-top sneakers. He likes them because he doesn't have to worry about laces, I love them because they're durable and stylish. Thankfully, it was a beautiful day, so he picked out his Dinosaur themed museum t-shirt, thanks to his Aunt Leslie and I suggested a chambray button down from Primark to double as a jacket. Of course, no outing would be complete, if we didn't bring at least one of his 12,373,972 dinosaur toys. If you're a parent, does your child like to dress himself or do you do the dirty work?

#FBF Car Review: Kia Optima

As a blogger, I sometimes get the opportunity to do some really awesome stuff including testing some really cool vehicles. Back in July, I was able to test drive the sporty Kia Optima SXL 2.0 for one week thanks to DriveShop. I'm going be honest, before the test drive, I wasn't sure what to expect from Kia. I simply seen them as value cars with a few luxuries, but it seems they have a lot more to offer. Keep reading to find out my top 5 reasons on why I loved the Kia Optima.

BCA Spotlight: Gina Maisano

Today's BCA Spotlight falls on Beterre Skin+Care founder and two-time breast cancer survivor, Gina Maisano. Gina hopes to encourage awareness of those affected by breast cancer not only in October, but year-round.

Gina was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2001 and while undergoing chemotherapy and radiation treatments, she was in need of products that would help ease the side effects she was experiencing. As a former chef, known for her innovative cuisine, she was well versed in finding and blending beautiful ingredients to maximize their potential.  She consulted with the two physicians who performed her reconstructive surgery after her double mastectomy, who became an integral part of the development of Bétèrre, and for three years she worked alongside a botanical chemist to create what has now become Bétèrre Skin+Care, a non-toxic beauty line that is suitable for even the most sensitive skin.

Live Well with Nature Made

This post was sponsored by Nature Made® as a part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central.

My days have been busy lately. Running around doing errands, networking and attending events and of course, keeping Darius busy. One thing I try to keep in mind is to make healthy choices when it comes to eating, especially when I'm always on the go. It can be so tempting to grab something quick and unhealthy, but it can also be hard to avoid sometimes. Let's be honest, we all love a French fry every now and then, but on the flip side it can be a little difficult to make sure we get the proper nutrition we need every day. An easy way to make good decisions when it comes to getting nutritional support is by adding Nature Made vitamins, minerals, and supplements to your everyday routine.
