Be Chic Literate: 100 Days of Cake and The Flip Side

My daughters and I have embarked on our own summer reading program - we each set a goal of how many books we wanted to read this summer {I picked 25, Peyton - 30, Little Miss Lo - 40, and my oh so ambitious Kenziekins decided that we should read her 60}, the person who meets their goal first will get the ultimate bragging rights and I'll buy them a book of their choice when the competition ends {right before they go back to school on August 8}. Lately I've found that I'm more attracted to titles in the YA genre, so I think Peyton and I may have to toss a coin to see who gets to read which of these new books from Simon & Schuster first! {Books provided for review/feature consideration}

Be Chic Literate: The Sleep Revolution: Transforming Your Life, One Night at a Time by Arianna Huffington

Arianna Huffington is the cofounder and editor-in-chief of The Huffington Post and the book was inspired by the day in 2007 when she collapsed from exhaustion and how that became her wakeup call. She wrote about the experience in her #1 NYT bestselling book Thrive and as she traveled the country talking with people, the issue that folks brought up most often was sleep and how they weren’t getting enough of it. Arianna – who after her collapse, learned how to prioritize sleep and went from sleep amateur to sleep pro – wrote The Sleep Revolution to help the rest of us do the same. In the book, she becomes our personal sleep evangelist, coach, and champion. She compiles the latest research about just how sleep-deprived we are, the havoc it wrecks on us personally and collectively, and uses the latest cutting-edge research and science to lay out a roadmap of practical tips to help us get to sleep. {Book provided for review/feature consideration}

Plan Your Next Family Fun Night at Bowlmor Lanes!

According to the American Camp Association (ACA) the average summer day camp costs $304 a week, with for-profit camps costing and upward of $500+. As a parent, this cost can be overwhelming especially for a family with multiple children.

Family fun should be affordable - but the rise in bowling’s popularity has also coincided with a steep increase in price by some area bowling alleys, putting the activity beyond the means of many Atlanta families. Bowlmor Lanes has set out to change that!

Unglue Your Kids From Their Devices with KoalaSafe!

Do you have kids? Are they constantly on their devices? My kids are obsessed with playing games {and for my teen it's all about social media}, so their eyes are constantly glued to their iPad and Chrome Books. When the hubby or  I let them know screen time is up, we're suddenly transformed into super villains and met with a cacophony of moans, groans, and whines. I used to wish I could just turn the internet off, and now with KoalaSafe, I can. {Product provided for review/feature consideration}
