Back To School with Carters♥

“I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Carter's. I received a complimentary gift card to facilitate my review and thank me for my participation.”

It may still be summer and you may even be planning another vacation, but Back to School season is upon us. And you know what that means right? Shopping. I love everything about Back to School shopping, from new clothes to shoes and of course looking for the perfect SALE! Now, try finding those three options in one store, it's usually impossible.. That's until I checked out Carter's! Carter's is my one stop shop for all my Back to School needs, from their ready-to-play shorts and tees, to their assortment of easy outfits and let's not forget Carter's now offers clothing up to a Size 8. Which in my case means, matching outfits for a longer period of time!

The Maritime Aquarium at Norwalk♥

The Maritime Aquarium at Norwalk offers visitors of all ages the opportunity to have a good time while learning about the vital natural resource just off their shore: Long Island Sound. Visitors explore at their own pace, observing 34 exhibits featuring more than 1,200 marine animals of 259 species. These close encounters with animals, enhanced by friendly volunteer interpreters and informative display panels, educate visitors about the aquatic life of Long Island Sound and its watershed. The sharks, seals, river otters, sea turtles and other animals, carefully tended in re-created natural settings, serve as ambassadors both for their species and the Sound's natural environment. The Maritime Aquarium also boasts Connecticut's largest IMAX Theater, with a movie screen that's six stories high.

Join me @ Mudderella 2015 New England♥

I love walking/running. I wake up early every morning just to get a few miles in. I'm not sure it it's the morning breeze or the peace and quite but I seriously look forward to it everyday. I did my first 5k last year with my fiance and we had a BLAST. It was a lot of sweat and color but overall we loved it and looked forward to it this year, that was until I heard of Mudderella. Mudderella is NOT a race, Muderella is a world class, 5–7 mile long, muddy obstacle courses. This full-day athletic event will challenge your all-around strength and endurance while building your team spirit and belief in yourself. Mudderella - designed for women by women - brings together fitness and friendship in a unique and inspiring way.

Gevalia Iced Coffee with Almond Milk♥

“I participated in an Ambassador Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Gevalia Iced Coffee with Almond Milk. I received product samples to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.”

My favorite part of the day is whenever I can enjoy a cup of coffee. From mornings to afternoons, Meditations to Dance Competitions, I'm happy as long as I have Coffee. It's love at first sip. I usually settle for a cup of hot coffee since that's all my brewer provides and all my local Coffee Shops are miles away. But, Summer and Hot Coffee just don't mix. So here's my new summer drink of choice, Gevalia Iced Coffee with Almond Milk.
