SuperKind Kickstarter: Inspiring a New Generation of SuperKind Heroes

I received a superkind set in exchange for this review.  All opinions are 100% mine.

SuperKind is such a beautiful concept that I feel honored to have the chance to share it with all of you.

The founders of Datevitation and their daughter decided to take a stand against bullying and encourage kindness instead. 

Superkind is a fun product that will help inspire kids to perform random acts of kindness.  They will be able to track their RAOK with personalized stickers, and encourage their friends to do the same by handing out cards featuring their faces.

Watch the video to learn more about it.




The goal is to inspire a new generation of everyday heroes who unite the world with the power of kindness.

Elijah loved receiving his personalized kit.  The first RAOK he picked was donate to the local food shelter.  His school is collecting cans all month, so he took two cans with him to donate.



He was very proud to put the food donation sticker on his certificate!


Next, he encouraged his sister to do a RAOK as well.


The cards are really cute, and give ideas as to what RAOK to do.

Before going to school Elijah decided he was going to do another RAOK during the day.  He was very proud of himself for letting his friend in front of him while waiting in line.  

He got to put another sticker on his certificate, and we're preparing for our next RAOK, which will be to leave a treat for the mailman.

I love the concept of SuperKind and encourage you to check out their Kickstarter Page HERE.

Download the Kit Free: They want all kids to have access to SuperKind cards, regardless of their financial ability.  That’s why they are offering a free PDF download of the Kindness cards for anyone who shares their campaign.  
How amazing is that?

Superfood Fuel for Kids - Organic Slammers



It is so frightening to read that the rate of childhood obesity has more than doubled in children, and tripled in adolescents within the last 30 years! 

I'm always in a search of healthier options for my kids, but also healthy snacks that my kids are willing to eat.


Fruit pouches have been a staple in our house for a while, and I was very excited to find out that Organic Slammers are full of Superfoods which are a great sources are Vitamins and Minerals.  
And, what better way to introduce your kids to flavors like brain-boosting blueberries, heart-healthy acai, antioxidant-rich pomegranate, and vitamin-rich yumberries.


They come in many different flavors and the great thing about the Slammers is that they have No Sugar Added, Nothing Artificial, High in Antioxidants, No Nuts, No Gluten and tons of Superfoods!  


They are perfect on the go.  

My daughter loves to eat one while playing on the playground.  I also like that they are easy enough for her to open herself.

I also put them in the kids' lunchboxes, and they would be an awesome treat to hand out at Halloween.


The Organic Slammers + Protein is perfect for this little guy before flag football practice.  I love being able to give him a snack that is full of good nutrients and 7g of protein.

Find them at your local grocery store like Publix, Target, Safeway and more.

Beach Christmas Family Photo Ideas

 
Can you believe it's Christmas pictures time again. 
 
Ok, you still have a some time before you really need to get serious about them, but I like to get a head start.  I've noticed that the longer I wait, the busier we get with everything else, and Christmas picture becomes overwhelming.
 
So I usually get prepared around mid October to early November.
 
I'm very lucky to have a sister who is very talented and takes amazing pictures, so I usually handle the idea for the picture, and I leave the picture taking to her.
 
Last year, I decided to take our project to the beach.  After a little digging, and creating we had a perfect background for our picture.
 
 
Of course I put my husband to work....
 
 
The kids helped with digging the holes where the boys would go, and my niece and I worked on the sandman and other decorations.
 
 
We made sure to plan the shoot for around sunset for a few reasons. 
First, there would be less people on the beach, but more importantly, there would be less shadows on the kids faces.
 
Also, my kids are very sensitive to the sun, and if we took the pictures in full daylight, they would all have closed eyes.
 
 
Here's the final result. 
I used this one for my Christmas cards.
 

It's also a nice background for individual pictures!
 
My kids aren't always cooperative during photo shoots, but by involving them in the preparation process they seemed more willing to pose for a few minutes.

G.H. Cretors Popcorn Dresses Up for Holidays with Fall-Flavored Caramel Corn


G.H. Cretors is bringing your favorite Holiday Flavors to their amazing caramel corn.  

I did a review of G.H. Cretors caramel corn several months ago, and I couldn't wait to try their New Seasonal Popcorns.

Not only is G.H Cretors caramel corn delicious it is made of the best ingredients. 
Non-GMO Project Verified, completely free of artificial colors, flavors, and preservatives.
It is also kosher and naturally gluten-free, so snack on....

The seasonal popcorn comes in three different flavors: Pumpkin Spice, Orchard Apple and Double Chocolate with Almonds and Cashews.


If you're one of those people who wait all year for September to roll around because of Pumpkin Spice flavored everything, the Pumpkin Spice Caramel Corn is definitely for you.

It's made with real pumpkin, whole pumpkin seeds, large walnut pieces, and an autumn-inspired spice blend of cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, and cloves.


The Orchard Apple Caramel Corn has such an interesting flavor, a little sweet and tart, It combines caramel corn with large slices and chunks of real Granny Smith and Fuji apples.  

I love the combination of popcorn and slices of dried apples, it was so original and flavorful.


Last but not least and my favorite (because I'm a chocoholic) is the Double Chocolate Caramel Corn with Almonds and Cashews.  Made with white and dark chocolate, whole almonds, and whole cashews, this version is to die for. So delicious, I can eat a bag in one sitting!

The Limited Edition flavors will be available in 8-ounce bags for around $5.99 in natural food and mainstream grocery stores. 

The Limited Edition Tin will include an 8-ounce bag of Orchard Apple Caramel Corn, an 8-ounce bag of Pumpkin Spice Caramel Corn, and a 5-ounce bag of Chicago Mix for around of $19.99.

Check out the Store Locator.

Disclosure: I received a sample of G.H Cretors Seasonal Caramel Corn in exchange for this review.  However, all opinions are 100% my own.
