Hasbro’s Joy For All Companion Pets: Bringing a Touch of Joy to Your Loved One's

This post was sponsored by Hasbro’s Joy For All brand as part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central. All opinions expressed in my post are my own.

As the holidays approach it becomes more apparent how precious family is, and how much time can change a family. I sit at a family dinner looking at my grandparents missing the years I had as a child with them. Hanging out at grandma’s house was one of my favorite activities as a child. I couldn’t wait to see her after school and hang out together eating cookies and milk while watching our favorite shows. She made me feel special and I am so grateful for those years we spent together. Now that I am an adult with my own children, life gets away from me and I don’t spend as much time as I would like at “grandma’s house” anymore.

Mabel's Labels Has You Covered! No More Lost Kids Stuff!

I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Mabel’s Labels. I received a voucher to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.

Kids are out of school, summer is in full swing and it’s time to get kids ready for camp! It can be overwhelming getting everything they would need packed and ready, but what is more overwhelming to me is the possibility of them losing something while at camp. We all know kids have a special talent for misplacing their items or losing them all together and that likelihood only increases when you aren’t there to magically find it all.

Trolley Square: keeps coming back all year round!


Christmas is coming soon!! Do you have everything you need for all your loved ones? If not you will definitely want to run over to Trolley Square to get what you need!

If it's just a last minute filler item you need, a super unique gift or maybe something really special for the "hard to buy for" person on you list Trolley Square has you covered and will take care of everyone on your lists this year. 

One of my all-time favorite stores at Trolley Square is Williams-Sonoma, if you can't find the perfect gift for the "chef" in you life there, you won't find it anywhere. Unfortunately I have to constantly remind myself why I am there and to stay on task! Otherwise I walk out with five items for myself and forget why I was there in the first place! 

Even if you don't know someone that likes to cook, you will find tons of great items that anyone would love to add to their kitchen. 

If I am looking for something completely unique that will have my friends wondering, "where did you find this?" (in a good way lol) I head to Cabin Fever where they have thousands of truly unique gifts that will WOW your friends and family. 

As soon as I walked in I spotted Dr. Who ornaments and other items and had to grab some! I am a huge Dr. Who fan, but I can't find any Dr. Who products off of the internet and who wants to have to wait a week or more to have stuff shipped? 

They also had tons of amazing My Little Pony items for the little girl or Brony on your list. lol My little girl is obsessed so I bought her an adorable hat that looks like Twilight Sparkle. 

At most malls you will find stores that just look like they were thrown in without any thought, but at Trolley Square you will find refined stores and unique stores. There was thought put into who occupies the beautiful space that is Trolley Square and that is why I will do I take care of my Christmas shopping there, but I keep coming back all year round. 


Decking The Halls With Lynch Creek Farm!


Christmas is around the corner which means it’s time to start thinking of how you want to Deck Your Halls! After all if you are anything like me, then Christmas is your absolute FAVORITE holiday! I decorate as early as my husband lets me and keep it up as long as he lets me. Right now I have 2 16 gal Rubbermaid buckets packed to the brim with Christmas items plus a 7ft Christmas Tree.  Up until this year we have been in apartments so I am sure my collection will grow now that we are settling into a home of our own. 

This year to celebrate, I have decided to try something different. I decided I want to have a live wreath for our front door! I haven’t had any live Christmas greenery in my home since I was a child and discovered that I was allergic to Christmas trees. I am fine with evergreens when they are out in the wild, but cut one down and bring it inside and I get incredibly sick. My husband has been a good sport about having a fake tree, but I know he misses the sight and smell of live evergreens. I have tried to make it up to him in the past by buying a bunch of pine scented candles which I light throughout the Christmas season, but it just isn’t the same he says. Which brings me to my decision this year.  

I figured that the wreath would be on the front door, so it wouldn’t bother my allergies much. However it would add that perfect classic touch to our new home in looks and smell whenever we opened the front door.

When I told my husband what I was planning he insisted I start looking online right away. And that’s how I found Lynch Creek Farm. All of their wreaths, centerpieces, and garlands etc are fresh, gorgeous, and affordable! And best of all they offer a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee! I simply fell in love when I found their site. It took me a while to choose what I wanted to order, since I loved everything I saw. 

In the end I ended up ordering both a wreath and a matching centerpiece. As for the centerpiece I figured it I got something midsized or small then it wouldn’t bother me as much as a full sized tree and would make my husband so happy. After ordering I anxiously awaited the arrival of our packages. When the two large boxes arrived I couldn’t wait to open them up, but had promised to wait till my husband got home from work. After all he was more excited about this then even I was.

Here were the first impressions that my husband and I had when we pulled them out of the boxes:

1. The smell was heavenly! No scented candle can ever fully capture the essence of live greenery. 

2. They were just like the pictures on the Lynch Creek Farm’s website, only better. The colors are more vibrant and the details are amazing. 

3. Both the Wreath and the centerpiece were extremely well crafted. Neither had shed much at all in the boxes (and they haven’t in the days since I put them out on display!)

4. We are so doing this again next year!

Each item came with instructions for care, which is extremely easy to follow:

Product Care

For best results, immediately remove fresh greenery from packaging. When hanging outdoor products like wreaths, choose a sheltered area and avoid direct sunlight. Mist backside with water every other day. The Floral foam on indoor products, such as centerpieces, should be kept moist. With proper care, live evergreens will last up to one month indoors, and up to four months outdoors, depending on climate. – Lynch Creek Farm

If you are looking for that perfect touch for your holiday decorations, then head over to Lynch Creek Farms today! Trust me you wont be disappointed! I’m thinking next year in addition to the wreath and the centerpiece to get their Scented Country Cones for the mantle of the fire place that I want to have by then ;-)
