BRIO Smart Engine Set with Action Tunnels


We received this great little BRIO Smart Engine Set with Action Tunnels to try out and we will have one to giveaway soo, too! Like most little kids, our littlest loves running a toy train on a wooden track. This is a little different. This set comes with a train that has a battery, lights, sound, and 3 tunnels and a station each with triggered effects so a child can customize an interactive experience.

My Daily Gratitude Journal Review


We just received a surprise advance reader copy of Hello Angel Mandala Gratitude Journal - a nice little coincidence because it was my Birthday this week. It is a beautiful hardcover journal with writing prompts to remind you of things you can be grateful for and a daily calendar where you can write 3 things that you are grateful for each day. I never though of doing something like this but I know it is good for optimism and mindfulness to reflect on what you are grateful for so I think this is just what I need!

Vegan Challenge: The 30-Day Program for Eating Healthier and Improving Your Diet with Vegan Foods - Book Review and Giveaway


I was sent a complimentary copy of the Vegan Challenge book by Lisa Montgomery. Not only is this book full of recipes but it combines it all into a 30 day program and meal plan. With each daily meal plan there is a daily fact, an affirmation quote, and lined space for notes. There is also an equipment section explaining the different juicers, blenders, and cookers used in some of the recipes.  I really liked the variety of  healthy recipes in this book and the added bonus of being a tool to help someone become vegan.

18 Vegan Foods, Snacks, and Wine at Trader Joe's


I hadn't been to Trader Joe's in a while. They are the furthest grocery store away from me that I regularly go to and they stopped carrying some things that I liked. They also don't carry any good vegan cheese or a meat subs, however, I checked out some new vegan or accidentally vegan items during my recent trip along with some of my old favorites and decided to make a little list. Aside from all the great fruits and veggies, here are 17 vegan foods and drink that were in my cart this Trader Joe's trip:

The Official Animal Rights March San Diego 2018 - Why We Marched with Kids



This was the first year that The Official Animal Rights March took place in San Diego and the first march I went to with kids. This is a worldwide march started in London in 2016 that has grown around the globe. Marching isn't something I always want to do but I'm getting used to it and will continue to march for issues I believe are not being addressed. Animal Rights is especially important because a lot of people STILL don't know how much every single animal suffers and fights an untimely death. Billions of animals are needlessly slaughtered every year, a large percentage going right into the trash without even being consumed because we demand it. Well we demand that it stops.
