Nobody loves candy more than our Tristan, his sweet tooth is pretty intense and if it were up to him he'd go trick or treating everyday of the year! We're really not sure what makes the month of October cooler, the fact that it's his birthday month or that his favorite holiday entitles him to collecting buckets full of sweets. Lucky for him and other lil' monsters, kids of all ages can now explore the exciting and delicious world of Dr. Panda Candy Factory—which got a spooky makeover just in time for Halloween!

Unleash Your Warrior in the Fight Against Breast Cancer with WWE and Susan G. Komen

Having to persevere with Crohn's, a chronic auto immune disease for nearly 2 decades, there have been incredible lows as I battled painful flare-ups, two bowel resection surgeries and a combination of bi-monthly infusions and hundreds of pills prescribed just to maintain. I am always in awe and fully support the women and men who have to face any life altering illness like Breast Cancer. To coincide with Breast Cancer Awareness Month, WWE is continuing its partnership with Susan G. Komen for the sixth consecutive year by encouraging fans to take action in the fight against breast cancer through the “Unleash Your Warrior” campaign.

Unleash Your Warrior celebrates everyday heroes making a difference in the fight against breast cancer, encouraging them to “Be Strong, Act Bold, Always Believe,” a sentiment echoed by WWE Hall of Famer The Ultimate Warrior.

Disclosure: This is a Sponsored Post, Opinions expressed are 100% my own

Imagine a world where kids can make a difference in creating a better world to live in through the wonderful traits like bravery, confidence, kindness and and creativity that they already possess. Our two boys Tristan and CJ have always been taught the importance of giving back and this year they are looking forward to supporting an organization that helps children and families in need. As blogger kids they are very fortunate to have the opportunity to review the latest and greatest toy products and they know that often there may be kids in shelters and hospitals who won't get to spend their holiday with their loved ones, and who's families may not have the time or funds to shop for presents. 

During this years MomTrends Night Out, influencers learned about the latest products from Jif and their "Imagine If, with Jif" campaign while sharing how they inspire the next generation of changemakers right at home. 

SpongeBob SquarePants Hits Broadway in December

Really, it's ok! Even if you're an adult with kids of your own, you can admit to being a SpongeBob Square Pants fan! You'll get no judgement from me. When the hit Nickelodeon show first aired back in the late 90's I was in High School and rarely watched cartoons but my sissy Nicole and younger brother Jay were obsessed with the hilarious sponge who lived in a pineapple under the sea with his pet snail Gary and got into all kinds of trouble with his best friend Patrick the starfish. It's no surprise that nearly 2 decades later, my own two boys and kids all around the world are still tuning in. 

On Broadway this December, fans of this long time running show can now get ready to dive to all-new depths of theatrical innovation at SpongeBob SquarePants, where the power of optimism really can save the world! Stakes are higher than ever before as SpongeBob and all of Bikini Bottom face the total annihilation of their undersea world. Chaos erupts. Lives hang in the balance. And just when all hope seems lost, a most unexpected hero rises up and takes center stage.

Personally, all the quirky humor of this iconic pop culture show is a great way to detach from all the stress of adulting, so I can only imagine how fun it will be to watch live on stage.

When Life Calls for a Mom's Night Out You Take It! #MTNightOut2

Squeezing in an hour or two just for myself kind of seemed trivial, knowing how tragic September ended for my family - loosing a loved one unexpectedly is never easy to wrap your head around. Yet at the same time, I needed a moment to breathe, to stop crying....... I needed a night out even if it meant it was a "work" thing. Despite rocking our best smile from cheek to cheek, I'm sure a handful of mama's in the room probably had some form of crap going on. Being able to revel in a MomTrends night out while learning about the latest products and destinations to help ease the day-to-day of #momlife was just the break I needed and beyond appreciated.

Tips, Tricks and the Best Photo Gear Picks for the Holiday Season #CTAPhotoNYC

Photography is the beauty of life captured
Capturing those priceless candid shots and special moments with family and friends are a must this time of year as our calendars fill with penciled in gatherings and festivities.You know, those adorable shots of your toddlers first time pumpkin picking in a field of gourdes larger than themselves, or the hilarious pics of your favorite crazy uncle dressed as Santa & your terrier dressed as Rudolph are always fun to show off.  I've found that this especially rings true when you realize with a blink of an eye or a flash of your camera that your loved ones, unexpectedly may not be there to celebrate these love and laughter filled moments with you the following week, month or year. There are literally thousands of photos living on our laptops , cellphones and cameras and I'm so thankful to have them because they've allowed us to take bitter sweet trips down memory lane as the boys and I remember loved ones we've had to say goodbye to. With the holiday season in full swing I was thrilled to host an intimate lunch and learn which provided the best photography tips, tricks and products for an amazing group of local bloggers on behalf of The Consumer Technology Association, CES and Techlicious
