Shake it up with Voli Vodka while Cruising like a Norwegian Contest! #VoliGetaway

Disclosure: I received a free product for the purposes of this review. All opinions are honest and reflect my own experiences with the product. 

As a mother, some days can be extremely tough. Well, as a human, some days can be really tough. And some days, as I sit down to relax for a few minutes before bed, I like to have a little drink occasionally. Voli Vodka has some amazing flavors that are great for making all kinds of delicious drinks.
With flavors like Orange Vanilla, Mango Coconut, Lemon, Espresso Vanilla and Raspberry Cocoa... what's not to like? The also have Voli Orginal Light Vodka... which is what I used to mix with my Ginger Ale a few evenings ago, for a wonderful little night cap.
The taste was smooth and light. And it went wonderfully with my Ginger Ale. I think would go great with just about anything. I cannot wait to come up with some other great drinks this weekend. Maybe some Lemon Flavored Voli in my lemonade.

Allstate Foundation Purple Purse thinks Empowerment is always in style!

Disclaimer: This post is part of a sponsored campaign with The Allstate Foundation and MomSelect. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

If you are a big sports fan, like me, then you may know that Domestic Violence has been in the headlines for quite a few weeks. It is horrible that it takes something so horrific to bring this disturbing problem to the forefront, but I am glad that it has gotten people to talk about this problem. Did you know that Domestic Violence affects 1 in 4 women in their lifetime? That is more women than breast cancer, ovarian cancer and lung cancer combined! The Allstate Foundation Purple Purse program aims to break the cycle of violence in our nation - one family at a time.

When most people hear about Domestic Violence, they think of the physical abuse. But most do not even think of how many women are victims of financial abuse. Sounds weird, I know, but it happens more than you would think. A very close friend of mine was a victim of this kind of abuse. Her husband would tell her on a daily basis that she could never leave him because he made all the money. She was a stay-at-home mom and was terrified to leave because she did not know how she could take care of her kids with no money.

Allstate Foundation Purple Purse program wants to get people talking about domestic violence and the financial abuse that traps women in abusive relationships. This program ignites fundraising for more than 140 national, state and local domestic violence organizations. The money that is raised will help domestic violence survivors build safer lives for themselves and their families.

Almost 8 in 10 Americans have not really heard that much about financial abuse as a form of domestic violence. The number one reason domestic violence survivors stay in an abusive relationship is that they don’t have the financial resources to break free. It is also the number reason that they leave and return to an abusive relationship. Two-thirds of Americans also believe that domestic violence is a serious problem, but just over 1 in 3 have ever talked about it. Allstate Foundation Purple Purse aims to make it fashionable to talk about this difficult topic.

But you can help ensure domestic violence survivors – likely someone you know – are not financially trapped in an abusive relationship by joining the Purple Purse Challenge. You must open your heart and wallet to stand up for survivors and the organizations that serve them. The Allstate Foundation is investing more than a half million dollars in the Purple Purse Challenge. The more donations each nonprofit gets, the more it can compete for Allstate Foundation incentive funding. You must go to between September 2nd and October 3rd to join the Challenge and help a nonprofit organization near you.

Kerry Washington, an Emmy-nominated actress and domestic violence activist, is serving as a Purple Purse ambassador to help raise awareness for the cause. She has also designed a limited-edition purple purse. The purse was created to represent the center of a woman’s financial domain and to inspire women to reclaim their financial independence.

You can turn any purse into a Purple Purse, because The Allstate Foundation is widely distributing Purple Purse charms so you can show your support and attach them to your favorite bag year round. They are also being distributed with inspiring survivor stories through Purple Purse Challenge participants and Allstate agency owners.

If you or someone you know needs immediate help, call the National Domestic Violence Hotline at 1-800-799-SAFE (7233) or TTY 1-800-787-3224.

K'NEX Building Sets provide hours of fun and creativity! #KNEX

Discloure: I received a free product(s), as I am a K'NEX Blog Ambassador. All opinions are my own and reflect my own experiences with the product.

My daughter loves to build things. We have been having fun with so many K'NEX products over the last few months. But I have to say that our favorite by far, are the building sets. They have so many different things to build and so many ways to use the pieces that it is HOURS of fun.
This amazing K'NEX 52 Model Building Set has over 600 pieces! There are 52 different things to build and learn with. Kids will love it! Mine sure does. It is suggested for kids 7 and older. And my daughter has so many hours of fun with it. 
But she also really enjoys the K'NEX 35 Model Ultimate Building Set that has over 475 pieces! The manuals show you all the 35 different things you can build or you can build whatever you can come up with on your own!

K'NEX also has fun new collection of building sets that recreate the video game Titanfall. These Titanfall sets are so much fun for my husband. He loves them. And he builds with them quite often.
This is the IMC Pilot Strike Building Set. There are 5 other Titanfall sets available. This one has over 80 pieces, includes one pilot and one spectre and is recommended for ages 8 and up!

The Plants vs. Zombies collection is an absolute favorite in my house. Everyone loves to play with this collection and they have hours of fun doing it. K'NEX has a Plants vs. Zombies Football Mech Building Set and it is absolutely the right time of year for this. All of the people in my house are huge football fans and this is right up their alley!
All of these sets have easy to understand building instructions and are lots of fun to build. It is fun for the whole family and hours of entertainment, learning and building. I urge you to check them out! You can also connect with them on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and Instagram.
