June is Men's Health Month and sometimes we forget that men need a little pampering too. It's just as important for them to take care of themselves inside and out as it is for women.

Somersets Shaving and Skincare products are perfect for keeping men's faces looking and feeling their best. Somersets natural essential oils moisturize your face as you shave and lubricate your razor blades for the perfect cut preventing razor bumps, razor burn and irritation leaving the face perfectly smooth and refreshed. They never use soap or harsh chemicals so you'll never get that tight dry feeling.

My husband had the chance to try some of the Somersets English Shave Oils and he's digging them.

Maxium Glide Original is a blend of natural plant and soothing essential oils including Tea Tree, Rosemary and Lavender that help reduce unwanted razor bumps and irritation and will leave your skin smooth and supple with no unwanted dry or tightness. Includes cooling menthol for a fresh invigorated feeling.

Maximum Glide Extra Senstive is specially formulated for men with extra sensitive skin. It moisturizes and lubricates the skin with a unique blend of natural plant and soothing essential oils including Tea Tree, Rose Hip Seed Oil and Alpha Bisabolol helping to reduce razor bumps and irritation leaving skin supple and smooth.

Maximum Glide Extra Stubble is formulated for men with tough or heavy beards and stubble. It moisturizes and soothes with Camomile, Tea Tree and Primrose giving your razor maximum glide for a close and comfortable shave with no nicks or razor burn.

If you're looking for the perfect shave Somersets products will help you acheive that! Along with their shave oils they also offer things like refreshing pre-shave face wash, detoxifying pre-shave face scrub, razor repair post-shave face balm, and replenishing post-shave moisturizer as well as many great shaving products for women!

SkinnyPop's Profile Photo

It's officially Summer and we're so excited about that! Pool days, mini vacays and enjoying the sunshine are some of the things we're looking forward to most. 

Having healthy snacks that my kids and their friends can grab and that I can snack on throughout the day is a summer priority too. SkinnyPop is one of our fave's and it's so easy to grab a bag to bring to the pool or sporting events. 

SkinnyPop believes in snacking without compromise. They use the fewest, cleanest, simplest ingredients possible to bring you the best tasting popcorn --that's the skinny!

My kids love the White Cheddar flavor and I personally love the Dusted Dark Chocolate that no one else in my family likes so it's a win for me! Chocolate + Popcorn, yes please! You can also enjoy the Original SkinnyPop flavor as well as Sea Salt and Pepper, Naturally Sweet, and Jalapeno.

You'll love that SkinnyPop is Dairy Free, Non GMO, Gluten Free, Peanut Free, Tree Nut Free, Preservative Free and there are no artificial flavors and Zero Trans Fat! Go head and indulge in this yummy popcorn this summer, each variety only has around 40 calories per cup give or take a few!

Watch us try out the Sun Joe iONBV Cordless 3-in-1 Blower/Vacuum/Mulcher which makes yard work a breeze...

The Jackson Five Family was provided with a complimentary product sample to help facilitate this reader feature. However, ALL opinions are honest and our own!


What a wonderful weekend it's been. The weather was perfect and my husband's been on vacation this week so we got so many things done around the house. We have a huge yard and maintaining it is sometimes a chore, but having the right tools sure makes it a lot easier!
 I recently talked about the iONBV --Sun Joe iON Cordless 3-in-1 Blower/Vacuum/Mulcher and today I'm excited to share some video of my husband using it. Bare with me I'm no videographer. 

This first video is Sun Joe talking about the product and the two after are Craig using it to clean up some lawn clippings and clearing off the sidewalk outside of our home.

We love products and tools that make life easier and this one does just that. The iONBV 3-in-1 Blower, Vacuum and Mulcher is perfect for blowing out debris that collects in the garage, keeping the deck and porch/porch furniture cleaned off and it works great for keeping your sidewalks and yard free from leaves, grass clippings etc... We love that it takes up little space in the garage and offers 3 different functions. Watch my hubby below as he vacuum's up the left over clippings that are on the sidewalk from mowing and trimming the bushes in the landscaping.

It's so easy to vacuum the pieces up. When it sucks the debris into the 16 gallon collection bag the high impact-resistant impeller shreds leaves up to 1/17th of original size making it easy to dump out the tiny particles into a yard bag when finished.

The Sun Joe iONBV is lightweight, very easy to interchange from a blower to a vacuum/mulcher and you'll love that with the 40 volt Lithium-Ion rechargeable battery you get 45 minutes of run time. We love that it's cordless so that you can take it all around the house and yard without having to make sure the cord is long enough to reach where you want to go. The blower offers 6 speed settings up to 200 mph allowing you the power to blow even the biggest piles of debris, leaves, mulch and small stones out of your way quickly and easily. 

We're so excited about having this blower, vacuum and mulcher after using it and seeing how well it works and how easy it is to use. We have really big cushions on our porch and patio furniture that collect mulch and leaves when it's windy, bugs and all kinds of other things and this will be so easy for me to use to blow them off whenever we want to sit outside. Love how lightweight it is even for me! 

Sun Joe offers so many great products to help you keep your home looking great on the outside. Whether you're looking for a great lawn mower, power washer, trimmer or even a fire pit to relax around after all your hard work is done they have many options to choose from!

Kids will love protecting their eyes this summer with Awesome Aces sunglasses by Babiator! #Giveaway

School's out and so is the sunshine. We'll be spending most of our days outdoors. Whether we're at the pool, playing sports or just hanging out around the house we'll be soaking up lots of sunshine and protecting our eyes is very important. You seldom catch me outdoors without sunnies on even on cloudy days and I love that my kids grab their sunglasses when heading outdoors too! 


Children receive 3X more sun exposure each year than adults so getting them in the habit of protecting their sensitive eyes is really important and having a cool pair of sunglasses for them to grab makes it that much easier. 

Babiators is on a mission to protect kids' eyes and their Aces line for kids ages 7-14 offer some awesome shades to do just that. Kids love Aces rad styles and parents will love the super durable design and their awesome Aces Lost and Found Guarantee. 

Aces feature flexible rubber frames with shatter resistant lenses that won't break when you bend, twist or step on them. They offer 100% UVA and UVB protection and are backed by Babiators' signature Lost and Found Guarantee -- meaning if you lose or break your shades within one year of purchase, Babiators will replace them for free, you simply pay only the shipping!

 Grady digs his new Aviator Aces (also available in Navigator style and many color options with mirrored lenses). Each pair comes with their own sunglasses bag and a lens cloth for easy cleaning!
