This is a partnered post with myself, Champions for Kids and The Motherhood to introduce the Snacks for Students program. All words and opinions are my own.

Over the years I’ve worked with Champions for Kids a few different times.  The concept behind Champions for Kids is really simple: it’s an organization that makes it easy for you to give to kids in your own community.  There are a number of different programs they host throughout the year from food to books to toiletries and more.

Champions for Kids: making it easy to give to kids in your own local communities #SnacksForStudents

The ‘your own community’ part is one of the biggest reasons I’ve enjoyed partnering with Champions for Kids the last few years.  There are, of course, plenty of people that need our help worldwide, but it’s important to not overlook those in our own backyard, either.  And now for the first time, nearly everyone in the country can get involved in providing for their communities.

Have you been scouting for after-Christmas sales? I popped into Walmart yesterday for a few things and noticed a bunch of pretty Coty fragrances still available. If you didn’t receive your favorite scent for Christmas, then there’s still time to pick them up.

Thank you to Lunchbox for sponsoring this post. All opinions are my own.

Choosing gifts for little kids can be harder than you might think.  I mean, yes, there are plenty of toys around.  And there are no shortage of commercials causing kiddos to shout “I want that!”.  But how much is hype and how much is true interest?

Checking out the Barbie Bubble-tastic Mermaid at the Walmart Toyland Chosen By Kids event
This Barbie Bubble-tastic Mermaid post is brought to you by Sverve. All words and opinions are my own.

A couple of weeks ago I shared that I was heading to the Walmart Toyland event at our local Walmart.  They had some of this year’s hot toys available for hands-on play.  Bubbles was excited to try her hand at a few different products, and as a Mom I appreciated being able to judge her reaction and see which ones she gravitated towards.

The technology that has gone into smartphones over the last few years really can make your head spin a little.  They do everything!  In one device you can talk, text, watch movies, stream music, play games, surf the web, create videos, take pictures – even use it as a remote control.

$50 will get you unlimited talk, text, and web PLUS free music streaming without using data. Get this T-Mobile plan - plus the Nokia Lumia 530 - now at Walmart #TMobileWM

Much of that takes data, though, and as anyone who has paid a cellphone bill knows – data can get expensive.  That’s why in this post sponsored by Lunchbox (all opinions are my own) you’ll be excited to learn that there is an awesome T-Mobile plan available from Walmart.  It has unlimited talk, text and web plus free music streaming that doesn’t use your data all that for just $50 a month.
