Cosmeticare – Coolsculpting for Upper Arms Update

Post written by me for Cosmeticare. All opinions are my own.  I’ve mentioned a few times that I was considering more body-sculpting. An area that has been bothering me are the back of my arms. I have been covering them up with sleeves, and would like to wear sleeveless again if possible. I’ve had consultations at Cosmeticare, and a few weeks ago, I DID IT! I tried Coolsculpting®! I picked this procedure because it is non-surgical, FDA-cleared, effective, and the results are long-term. Coolsculpting works by delivering controlled cooling to target the fat cells underneath the skin. The fat cells are frozen then die. Over time, your body naturally processes … READ MORE

Landscape Structures Inclusive Playground for All Abilities

This post was sponsored by Landscape Structures as part of a Influencer Activation for Influence Central and all opinions expressed in my post are my own. If you and your kids love playgrounds because your kids have all this energy they need to burn, I get it! They need to stay active or they’ll drive us crazy.

Valvoline Instant Oil Change: Wipe Out Breast Cancer with Pink Wipers!

I partnered with Valvoline Instant Oil Change (VIOC) for this project, however, opinions here are my own. If you’re starting to see pink wipers on vehicles, it’s all for Breast Cancer Awareness month. Every year in October, we start to see a lot of pink to remind us that it affects a lot of women, and we ourselves need to do routine check-ups. Some men get it too. They are saying every 2 minutes a woman is diagnosed with breast cancer AND 1 in 8 women will develop breast cancer in her lifetime. With alarming numbers like that, we all know at least one person battling breast cancer. My one … READ MORE

Big Air OC Trampoline Park Laguna Hills Birthday Party Survival Tips

Trampoline parks are not new in Orange County, and they are popular for birthday parties among the children. After been to several, I’ve noticed they’re all similar but have differences too. They all want to be family-friendly, accommodate play dates for small children, host teen nights and fundraiser nights for local schools, and they all want to be everyone’s birthday destination. Let’s take a look at Big Air Trampoline Park in Laguna Hills for example. I believe they were the first ones to open a trampoline park in Orange County. I’m not talking indoor bouncy houses but trampolines. I remember when they first opened in 2013, it was new and … READ MORE
