(The Jackson Five Family received a complimentary product sample to help facilitate this reader feature as part of the Florsheim Kids Certified Reviewer and Brand Ambassador program. However, all opinions are honest and our own!)

We love Spring and all of the fun footwear that comes with it. You know that one of our favorite brands is Florsheim Kids and I'm so excited to share some of their latest boy styles with you!
1. We love the Flipside Slip Jr. --It's the perfect summer slip on. Available in 3 classic colors; white, sand and navy and also 2 brighter fun colors; orange and blue. Lined with soft, breathable terry cloth these will take kids from the pool to riding their bikes in the park without any problems!
Grady LOVES his blue Flipside Slip Jr.'s!

2. Every little boy needs a pair of the Flipside Ox Jr.'s --Who wants to tie their tennis shoes in the summer? No one and that's why boys will love these slip on canvas tennies that have no shoes strings to deal with. They offer all of the comfort and support of a tennis shoe, but easily slip on so they'll be ready to go out and play in no time when their friends come knocking at the door! Available in the classic's; white, sand and navy.
3. Boys will be boys and that's why we love the Cove Mesh Jr. --It's a mesh shoe perfect for those boys who love to explore and occasionally like to get their feet wet whether mom says it's ok or not! Another easy slip on made from a combination of mesh and waxy canvas that still looks great even if they get their fair share of splashes this summer! Available in 5 colors!
Florsheim Kids offers high-quality footwear for boys.  We love the brand and highly recommend them as you're shopping for boys footwear heading into the warmer months!

Spring Into Fashion with Coolibar --Sun Protection You Wear

It's starting to warm up and we're so excited about that! There's nothing better than being outdoors in the warm sunshine in my opinion. We'll be hitting the pool a lot and hopefully get to a few beaches this summer. As much as we love the sunshine, we also know how important it is to protect our skin from the sun's harmful rays while enjoying the outdoors.
So today I'm excited to be teaming up with Coolibar!
Coolibar offers stylish women's, men's and children's UV protective clothing and accessories. The high-quality apparel guarantees ultraviolent protection factor UPF of at least 50, while still keeping you cool and comfortable. Coolibar's unique fabrics are made to last --they are embedded with sun protection from the inside out and will never fade or wash out, even in salt and chlorinated water.
The boy's are loving their new swim trunks and as a mom I love knowing that Coolibar's line of apparel is protecting them while they are outside enjoying their favorite things!
After browsing the Coolibar site I'm in love with their item's! Whether you're looking for a fun swimsuit cover up, added protection for your kiddos or husband I think you'll love what they have to offer as much as I do.
Visit the Coolibar website to learn more and to see all of the items available moving into the warmer months when you need sun protection the most!

Spring Into Fashion with affordable kids apparel from Kohls...

(The Jackson Five Family received a complimentary product sample to help facilitate this reader feature. However, all opinions are honest and our own!)
Happy Sunday! I've teamed up with Lea from the Rolands blog once again and today we are so excited about some sporty boy finds from Kohl's. Make sure you hop on over to her site and check out her cuties wearing their new spring apparel.
Having two boys can get expensive when it comes to the latest fashions, but Kohl's makes finding the latest styles affordable with their store brands like Tek Gear and Jumping Beans. I'm loving the Activewear Mix and Match Coordinates that I found for my boys' from both brands. They are bright, stylish, affordable and the quality lasts wash-after-wash which is so important!

I love that Kohl's offers affordable store brands, as well as great sales on some of our more expensive faves like Nike, Adidas, Puma, Converse and more. No matter our budget, Kohl's has exactly what we're looking for.
Check out the latest Spring apparel for the whole family by visiting:
Make sure you also like Kohl's on Facebook and follow on Instagram and Twitter. 
Be on the lookout for 'Milly' for DesignNation --I'm so excited for the launch of this new women's limited-time, limited-edition fashion collection that launches at Kohl's on April 23rd!

Contigo #Spillproofgizmo Giveaway!

(The Jackson Five Family received a complimentary product sample to help facilitate this reader feature and giveaway. However all opinions are honest and our own!)


Spring is here, the weather is starting to get warmer and the boys are staying active with baseball, bike riding and playing outdoors. Having them drink more water is so important and we are always looking for the best of the best when it comes to water bottles. They have to be functional, easy to clean and easy for them to take with them wherever they go etc...
So today I'm excited to share the new Contigo Gizmo Sip kids water bottle with you. It's perfect for our Grady and any kid who has outgrown a sippy cup, but hasn't outgrown the occasional spills. The Gizmo Sip features AUTOSEAL technology that automatically seals between sips for 100% spill-proof, leak-proof, mess-free drinking!
It's the perfect size for Grady. He's been taking it to school and to ball practice and I love that I don't have to worry about it leaking in his bag and making a mess. I also love that it's easy to clean. It's safe to put in the dishwasher on the top shelf and the lids underside flips completely open so you can easily clean in all of the little nooks and crannies. There is also a spout cover that keeps dirt and germs out when the kids are not using it.

Grady loves being able to press a button when he wants a drink of water and loves being able to watch the parts move with the see through lid.

The Gizmo Sip is available in 2 fun colors --Cherry Blossom for a more girly look and the Sapphire blue like we received. It's a great water bottle for kids! Contigo offers many other great kids products as well --check them out HERE and make sure you use coupon code GIZMO25 for 25% off your kids purchase through May 31st!
We want you to be able to try the Gizmo sip to see just how awesome it is, so today we are giving away 2 sets --the lucky winners will receive 2 Gizmo Sip Water Bottles each.

The World's First Body Wash with Fragrance Touch Technology --Caress Forever Collection

(The Jackson Five Family received a complimentary product sample to help facilitate this reader feature. However, all opinions are honest and our own!)
"Fragrance is emotion brought to Life. The Caress Forever Collection evokes love, passion, sensuality, and elegance."- Loc Dong
I love lathering up with a body wash that smells great. I only wish that the great smell would follow me out of the shower and linger around all day. Well today I am SO excited to tell you that it can!!
 Caress recently introduced a new body wash that features 12 hour fragrance release --the first of it's kind...

That's right it's the world's first body wash made with 'Fragrance Release Pearls' --a touch-activated technology that releases a burst of perfume every time you touch your skin throughout the day.
I was so excited when Caress gave me the opportunity to test their new 12 hour fragrance release body wash. They sent me the Adore Forever scent which is a feminine fragrance with notes of floral musk and sparkling pink roses laced in amber and their Love Forever that has rich floriental sweetness of scarlet roses and dark, lush berries.
They both smell so good, but the real test was to see if the scents could really linger on my skin all day making it different than the average body wash that smells good.

 I can tell you that after using the new Forever Collection for several weeks now that the answer is, YES! When I use these I get very subtle hints of the fragrance throughout the day. It's designed to release bursts of perfume with every touch of the skin for up to 12 hours. Unlike other body washes that smell great in the shower and then disappear as soon as you rinse them off, this one really is different. Although the scent is very subtle, I do continue to get tiny whiffs of it during the day which I enjoy! 
I will definitely purchase this again when I run out. I really like the fragrances and how creamy the wash is. It makes my skin smell good and feel amazing which is a win-win for me!
