Jif To Go Dippers & The #GetGoing Photo Challenge #MC #sponsored

I participated in an Influencer Activation Program on behalf of Influence-Central for Jif To Go Dippers. I received a sample to facilitate my review and a thank you item for participating.

There are two things I do each morning before my kids go to school. First, I make Josiah a Jif Peanut Butter and jelly sandwich. Second, I pack him a snack. I've failed to hold his interest with most snacks I pack and have tried to find healthy alternatives he will enjoy. When I heard about Jif To Go Dippers, I was so excited because we are huge Jif fans and, just like my mom, it is the only peanut butter I ever use. Of course, Josiah's teacher requires snacks to be nutritious and encourages parents to pack items that aren't packed in sugar. Jif To Go Dippers are absolutely perfect for snack time at home and at school.
As soon as the Jif To Go Dippers arrived at our home, Josiah couldn't wait to open and try them, so we had a special snack that night after dinner. There are two different choices: Chocolate Silk Peanut Butter with Pretzels or Creamy Peanut Butter with Pretzels. Josiah loves peanut butter and pretzels, so putting them together is just genius! He sat staring at the packages trying to decide which to try first, but finally decide on the Chocolate Silk with Pretzels.
Check out how creamy the chocolate dip is:

The Jif To Go Dippers #GetGoing Photo Challenge
I've learned over the years that peanut butter can be used for many creative recipes and Jif wants to inspire fans to have fun and be adventurous with their #GetGoing Photo Competition! There are many ways to enter. All you have to do is submit a photo depicting how you get going and tag it with #GetGoing for your entry to count. Your photo(s) can be submitted via Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Iconosquare. For all of the info on how to enter, just click here. The contest ends on October 1st, so act fast to get those entries in. You can win $1,000 to put towards a dream vacation.
From our Easter vacation to Florida! The beach was beautiful!
As someone who loves to travel, this would be perfect for our family. I've been to many places around the world, but my husband and children have never been outside of the United States. They don't even have passports yet, but they will have them in the near future. Where will we go for our next adventure? My kids both want to visit England. Josiah wants to see real castles and Liam wants to go to Peppa Pig Land. Since we have friends there, that just makes the idea of a trip even more fun. Of course, it isn't cheap for an entire family to fly over to England, so $1,000 would really help with the expenses.

What is your dream vacation? Where would you love to visit? We want to know!

Cascade Makes A Shining Impression #CascadeShiningReviews #DDDivas #sponsored @MyCascade

Disclosure:This post was written for Cascade in conjunction with Double Duty Divas. The post was compensated in exchange for in-home parties and honest reviews of the products. All opinions written are my own and those of party guests.

When I was a child, my mom kept her house beautiful and clean from top to bottom. In fact, we had a cleaning day when we scrubbed everything perfectly each week.  Washing dishes was just as important to her and she wanted them to be spotless. She always, always used Cascade and still does, which is probably why, as soon as I moved out on my own, I bought my very first Cascade, too. At 34 years old, I am still a Cascade fan and there are many reasons why. It's a brand I trust and know will not only clean my dishes, but also keep them shiny and looking new. I guess you could say using Cascade is a family tradition because it's something we all continue to use and I'm sure my kids will, too, one of these days.

Because we love Cascade so much, I was beyond excited when asked to be a part of the Cascade campaign with Double Duty Divas and host my very own Cascade at-home parties. Just a few weeks ago, I threw my first party with friends and family members. We had so much fun getting together and I had a chance to show them first-hand just how well Cascade works!

I received a huge box full of Cascade Platinum Pacs and Cascade Rinse Aid to give out to our guests!
In addition, I also got a Pyrex container and brownie mix to make a delicious treats for our guests. Of course, my boys had to help bake brownies with me and boy did they want to eat some as soon as they were done, but I had to save them for the next afternoon. Talk about torture for the little ones and for mama, too! They looked absolutely delicious!
So, the next day we headed to my sister-in-law's house! She graciously allowed us to party at her house and show off the wonders of Cascade. We had a house full of people there for dinner, dessert, and Cascade fun! I had the table set up with all of the Cascade goodies to hand out to everyone, so they were already excited as soon as they came in the house.
After we stuffed ourselves silly with food and brownies, I stuck the Pyrex container into the dishwasher without pre-washing, scrubbing or soaking per my instructions. As someone who usually does all of these when cooking brownies, I couldn't wait to see the final result and was hoping for the best! I stuck the Cascade Platinum Pac inside with the Pyrex dish and also included the Rinse Aid before starting it up!

The result? A beautifully clean and shiny dish, free of any remaining baked on brownies or oil! In fact, it looked brand new and, after several uses, still looks just as shiny! As usual, Cascade really came to the rescue and made a powerful impact not only on the dishes, but on my guests. My mother-in-law remarked, "I was really shocked at just how clean the dish was after washing!" My friend Holly said, "Wow, I always pre-wash and sometimes soak, but I can save time with Cascade Platinum."
Many of our guests were parents, so they, just like myself, are always on the go. I usually leave dishes until last at night and now I don't have to worry about them having residue or not getting clean because Cascade Platinum really packs a punch. In fact, I wouldn't feel so bad about leaving them overnight if I'm too tired, which is something I normally wouldn't do. As I spoke with guests, they all seemed to feel the same way. They were all excited about taking home samples and putting Cascade Platinum Pacs to the test on their own dishes.

So, now that you've seen Cascade in action, give it a try and let us know what you think! We'll be throwing another party on October 4th, so check back for our next post. This party will be even bigger and we'll have about 30 guests, so I can't wait to show them the power of Cascade.

Suave Split End Rescue On Rollback At Walmart for $2.50 #sponsored

Disclosure: This sponsored post was written for Global Influence in conjunction with Suave Split End Rescue products available at Walmart. 
As the daughter of a cosmetologist, my hair has been every length and every color possible. In high school, my hair was either brown or blonde, but when I began college, my hairstyle pretty much changed every single season. As a student at UGA, I even went through a bright Georgia red. As you can imagine, my hair suffered from all the different hair coloring along with daily use of a hairdryer and curling iron. My biggest hair mistake was when I decided to go from the bright red to blonde. Oh boy! After that, my hair was in need of intense hydration. My hair was a brittle split end tragedy.

I don't dye my hair quite as often these days, but I do like styling and straightening it when going out. Split ends have always been a bit of an issue for me and, I've learned over the years that the types of shampoos and conditioners I use are very important to hair health. As a family, we've used Suave shampoos, conditioners, and body washes for many years now. I love all the different scents and the price is perfect for our budget. When I heard about Suave Split End Rescue Shampoo and Conditioner, I couldn't wait to give them a try!
Along with the knowledge of hair care I've accumulated over the years, I've also learned that the quality of a product is not determined my high price. The fact that Suave Split End Rescue is salon proven to strengthen just as well as Paul Mitchell products is not at all surprising to me considering the quality of all of their other great items. Knowing that you could experience up to a 70% reduction in split ends isn't the only reason to give it a try. Right now, you can purchase Suave Split End Rescue Shampoo and Conditioner on Rollback at Walmart for only $2.50! These products gently cleanse and repair normal to dry hair with its PEC Complex. Your hair will be happy and so will your wallet!
