My New Favorite Accessory Obsession

Recently, I’ve been on a mission to revamp my look. I ordered new shoes, jeans, tops, dresses and more, but realized that my accessories stash was running low. Little miss #CharlieB has taken over my jewelry box, but if I being honest, most of the stuff in there was super dated anyways.

Thank God for The Pink Studs. My friend told me about this super cute online jewelry boutique and since then I’ve been obsessed. Their trinkets, baubles and jewels are perfect for a chic like me. A bit edgy, girly, classic and unique all rolled into one.

Just take a look at a few of their items below and head over to their site www.ThePinkStuds.com, you won’t be disappointed!

1/3 cup honey
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Pinch of cinnamon

Why The Britax Clicktight Car Seat Really Is A #Gamechanger!

I’ve tried my fair share of car seats … FOUR to be exact (and #CharlieB isn’t even two yet!). But now, I look no further. The Britax Advocate ClickTight car seat is all I ever needed!

I could give you all the safety features and the extensive list of impressive data, but Britax has already done all of that for you (just click HERE). What I will do is give you my list of pros and cons for the car seat that has been accurately dubbed the “#GameChanger”.

PROS

-It literally took me less than a minute to install it. ME! Our last car seats all had to be installed by my husband.

-It’s super plush and therefore comfy for my tall toddler.

-It’s a convertible seat that goes from newborn to toddler seamlessly.

-There are seven recline positions. SEVEN! Plus easy to read indicator on the side makes knowing which position to put your child in fool-proof.

-More than anything, the enhanced safety features give me peace of mind like no other.

CONS

-I wish it had a cup holder.

Yep, that’s my only con. And I just found out you can order one as an attachment on the Britax website for about 15 bucks.

As a product tester it’s really important for me to be able to stand behind my words and trust the items I endorse. Without a doubt, I will be recommending the Britax ClickTight car seat to every SASY mom I know!

Why “Home” Is Where The Heart Is!

Home has more than just heart … it’s full of laughs, tears and an amazing message!

Just a few days ago, the hubby, Charlie B and I got to see an early screening of the new Dreamworks animated film, Home. The film follows Tip, voice by Rihanna, who loses her mother when Boov aliens inhabit the Earth. Jim Parsons plays the adorable Boov alien Oh who attempts to help Tip find her mother Lucy, played by Jennifer Lopez. Steve Martin also joins the film as Boov leader, Captain Smek.

An all-star cast is just one of the many reason why Home is a must see movie for kids and adults alike. Here are my top 5 reason to see Home

1. The Boov aliens are super cute. Similar to the Minions in Despicable Me, the Boovs are bound to steal your heart and your kids will probably be obsessed. Get ready!

2. The jokes are actually funny. Not just kid-friendly funny, but adult funny, too. Somehow, Dreamworks figured out the perfect balance between little people LOLs and big people Bwahahahas.

3. You might just cry — Well, I did. I’m an emotional person on just an average day, but there’s a moment in this film where I think the whole audience teared up. It’s sweet, heartfelt and moving, so bring a tissue (just in case).

4. The message of the film encourages self acceptance and acceptance of those around you. Without beating you over the head, the message of tolerance is loud and clear, and it’s absolutely beautiful. It also promotes friendship, respect, loyalty, honesty, love, perseverance and determination … you can’t go wrong with a message like that!

5. There’s a surprise ending that’s just awesome. Without smacking you with a huge spoiler alert, I’ll just say that you think you know where the film is headed, but then something unexpected happens and it not only teaches a beautiful lesson, it’s also awww-inducing!

Home hits theaters March 27th! If you go, hit me up on Twitter and let me know what you thought.
