Before we scheduled our trip, I made the mistake of asking people about their experience with @legolandflorida. {Hosted} I was told that it was small and more fun for toddlers. They said my 10 and 14 year old wouldn't really enjoy it. Even though Falynn was ecstatic about it, I was honestly expecting to be disappointed. I will be the first to admit that I was VERY wrong. We all loved it! There was something for each of us to enjoy and all three of my girls can't wait to go back! Our first trip to Legoland will definitely not be our last. Today on the blog, I’m talking about why we loved it even more than Disney! You can read all about it by clicking the link in our bio or swiping up in stories. .

Before we scheduled our trip,...

Imagine being in your home, taking care of your baby and suddenly being ordered to leave. Imagine being told you could take only one small bag and everything else would be seized. Imagine being packed into a cattle car for days with no food or water or even room to move. Just a bucket in the corner, to be used as a bathroom and a tiny window for ventilation. Imagine people dying on that cattle car, right next to you. Imagine arriving at a concentration camp and immediately having your baby torn from your arms. Imagine having a number tattooed on your arm, to be used as your “identification”. Imagine finding out your Mother, husband and baby were killed for no reason at all,  aside from the fact that they were Jewish. No, this isn’t fiction. This is what it was like for my Auntie Rose and millions of other Jews during the Holocaust. Today on the blog, I’m talking about how it affected my family, both the survivors and those that were taken from us because they were too young, too old, too sick or too weak to work. January 27th is International Holocaust Remembrance Day. Let’s use this day as a day to reflect on what happened, and remind ourselves that people are people, regardless of their religion, race, or beliefs and we should all treat each other with respect. Never again. .

After yearsssssss of begging us to take her to @legolandflorida, we finally made it! {Hosted} This was Falynn’s 7th birthday trip. I have so much to say about our experience. But first, I have to go through over 1,000 photos 🤦🏻‍♀️. Does anyone else take way too many pictures on family vacations?

In 2017, tired of my debilitating anxiety disorder, I went to see a new doctor. She was sure my anxiety was the result of a medical condition. After routine bloodwork, I was told I had a vitamin D deficiency. But that’s it. I left without any more answers than I walked in with. It wasn’t until 2 years later when my friend DM’ed me to tell me that she and a friend (who both suffer from anxiety) had the same results, that I began thinking there must be a connection between anxiety and vitamin D deficiency. Today on the blog, I’m sharing why some studies show that a lack of vitamin D could be linked to anxiety and depression. I think what I found will surprise you. If you suffer from anxiety and/or depression, have you ever been told you’re vitamin d deficient? .

Let’s talk about family vacations... #gifted I struggled for years with the amount of time it took to pack up to go back home. There were always dirty clothes all over the floor and while I tried to pack it all into those hotel provided plastic laundry bags, 1) they were plastic and we are trying our best to do better for our planet and 2) they rip so easily, so we often wound up with dirty clothes spilling out in the car (yuck). A couple of months ago, I was watching a friend’s Instagram stories and she was talking about the @swoopbags she uses for her son’s toys. I immediately had an idea and knew I had to get one. 
On our last vacation, I opened up my large swoop bag and left it flat in the corner of our hotel room. We used it as our “laundry corner”. We instructed the kids (and ourselves) to drop our dirty laundry in the middle of the flattened Swoop bag. When it was time to pack up, I just swooped the bag, tied it and voila… it literally saved me all of the aggravation of finding and picking up all of the clothes and trying to find something to carry it all in. Don’t forget to check out the blog for more family travel hacks and a quick video on how I fit all 5 of our clothing into one small suitcase! I put the link in my bio! .

Surprise Eggs a Favorite in Your Home? Don’t Miss This Giveaway!

If your kids love surprise eggs, read on because we found a company that created something EVEN BETTER and three lucky readers will win their very own, shipped right to their door!

My kids have an unhealthy obsession with watching those videos where they open up blind bags and surprise eggs to find a little toy inside. They love the mystery of it all.  Since I can remember, Falynn has been a HUGE fan but it’s so hard to find surprise eggs in the states because they are considered a choking hazard, so actually getting them into her little hands is pretty difficult.  We’ve tried the kind they sell on eBay and Amazon and they just aren’t anything to cheer about.  The chocolate is old or melted by the time it gets to you and the toy inside is garbage. I remember once we ordered a dozen as a gift and 6 of them had the exact same toy inside.  Major fail.

Surprise Eggs The Small Fashionista for ToyBox Atlantic Candy Company

Well, when I stumbled upon ToyBox on Instagram, I knew that my girls were going to love them!  I headed over to their website to check them out and just fell in love with everything I read.  Turns out, ToyBox is the newest chocolate product from Atlantic Candy Company, a company that has been in business for nearly three decades and was featured on ABC’s Shark Tank.

According to their website…

“This is the candy you wish you had when you were a kid! Creamy, delicious milk chocolate with a surprise toy in every package! It really is like your birthday whenever you open one!” ToyBox utilizes patented Safe-Capsule technology that makes it safe for kids of all ages.  It is 100% FDA approved. The chocolate is made in the USA. It is Gluten free, organic, and Non GMO! Sounds perfect, right?!

Surprise Eggs The Small Fashionista for ToyBox Atlantic Candy Company

It all sounded great, but we all know that our kids are the real critics and are painfully honest.  I had a hard time getting feedback on these because my kids mouths were full of chocolate.  But… when they finally finished, it was nothing but rave reviews.  According to Falynn, these are “way better than a surprise egg.”  They all agreed that the chocolate is yummier than Kinder chocolate and the toys are so much better because they aren’t so tiny that you can’t tell what it is.  Plus, they don’t come in parts that you have to put together yourself.

Each ToyBox features a Pocket Pet™, a collection of adorable little toys and if they are anything like my kids, they’ll want to collect them all!  So, I bet you’re wondering how to get your hands on some.  They will be available nationwide in Dollar General in November (they will be holiday special edition!)  and in Claire’s stores (regular ToyBox) very soon!  So mark your calendars.  If you want to get your hands on some right away, make sure to enter the giveaway below!
