Mabel's Label's For All Your Labeling Needs This Back-To-School Season

Product(s0 provided for review purpose only. All opinions are my own and were in no way influenced. Your opinion may differ.
If I were to label all five of my children's supplies by hand, well, it would probably take me a week. And don’t be fooled. I don’t just label supplies, but clothing as well. Do you know how many jackets my sons “lost” at school last year? Go ahead take a guess… It was SEVEN! Yes, you saw that correctly. Fortunately, in Florida, we don’t need expensive heavy jackets just a light sweat jacket, but still replacing seven sweat jackets is pretty pricey and slight infuriating. This year will be different though, thanks to Mabel’s Labels.



Mabel’s Labels specializes in personalized labels for kids and adults. Their custom labels include sticky labels for clothing, personalized stickers for tweens, school labels, name labels, iron-on clothing labels/name tags, book plates, label stickers/adhesive labels for the home, and children’s labels for look-alike items sent to school, daycare or camp. And right now they have some amazing back to school packages including the Ultimate Back-to-School Combo.

The Ultimate Back-To-School Combo, includes everything you need to send your child off labeled and prepared this school year with your choice of 4 limited edition solid color palettes or 40+ Colorful designs, plus 3 exclusive Ultimate Back-to-School Combo motifs. So what exactly is included in this ultimate pack? Everything you need of course, including:

■40 Skinny-Minis™
■50 Tag Mates™
■16 Shoe Labels
■2 Teeny Tags™

Skinny-Minis are great for books, toys, lunchboxes, cups and more. Skinny-Minis simply peel and stick and are tough enough to with stand the microwave or dishwasher and are also UV resistant! The Tag Mates, however,  are my new best friend. They adhere to clothing care tags and won’t fall of in the washer or dryer.





Teeny Tags are perfect for the bookbag. I’ve also had my son bring home the wrong bookbag before so we are careful each year to add something to his bag that allows it to stand out (Teeny Tags display your child’s name from the outside with no mix-ups).

Save yourself some time and a few lost articles of clothing by labeling with Mabel’s Labels, whether your child is heading to day care, camp or back-to- school. And don’t forget they have deigns for your tweens as well. My son was proud to label his items with Mabel’s Labels Tween pack personalized just for him.


Buy It: Act fast because the Ultimate Back-to-School Combo pack is only available until September 30th. Find it at Mabelslabels.com for $42.00

Tailgating Florida Style with Florida Orange Juice! Citrus Marinade #Recipe #OJTailgating #MC

"I participated in an Influencer Activation Program on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for the Florida Department of Citrus. I received promotional item to thank me for participating.”"


Who’s ready for some football? With just 2 days left until our Giants get back to business, the excitement for another season has set in. But beyond my love for the game, I love the time spent together with family and friends. And most of all I love a good football party. But what’s a football party without good food?

Most of our favorite recipes for game day include the staple foods like wings and nachos, but we also always make full use of the grill whether in our yard or tailgating. 

Complex foods and recipes don’t have a big place at the game day table. It’s all about flavor and simplicity. One of our favorites is grilled chicken in a citrus marinade made from none other than Florida Orange Juice – which we always have plenty of in the fridge.


Florida Orange Juice, is quite surprisingly an amazing addition to your game day festivities from marinates to refreshments. And with growing boys in our home, I like to make sure the game day menu has some healthy variety to it. Did you know that one 8-ounce glass of Florida OJ, is an excellent source of vitamin C, delivering more than 100 percent of the Daily Value and also counts also counts as one cup of fruit? And let’s not forget the other essential nutrients like potassium, folate and thiamin that OJ contains.

Citrus Marinade #Recipe #MC #OJTailgating

So what will we be serving up come Monday night? Grilled chicken in our favorite citrus marinate, of course! Now you can alter this recipe, making chicken skewers and adding some veggies as well. For me, I like to keep the foods I serve in a stick to be limited. With 5 kids in the house, the sticks quickly become “mini swords”.

Ingredients:

  • Boneless skinless chicken breast
Marinade:

  • ¼ C 100% Florida Orange Juice
  • 1T lime juice
  • 1T jerk seasoning
  • 1t ginger, minced

Instructions:

Whisk together the Florida Orange Juice, lime juice, jerk seasoning, and minced ginger in a medium-sized bowl. Add the chicken to the marinade, mixing to make sure all your chicken is covered; refrigerate overnight or for at least 3 hours.

Place your marinated chicken on the grill. Turn chicken halfway through, brushing with additional marinade as desired. Cook for 15-20 minutes or until chicken is cooked completely through.

Serve immediately, or slice and serve on wraps with toppings of choice.


The flavor that the marinate locks in is amazing and everyone always loves how moist the chicken actually is. And as an added bonus it smells really good. My husband says the smell of the marinade while cooking reminds him of Christmas morning and I have to agree.



Want to learn more about incorporating Florida Orange Juice into your game day festivities? Last month, Erin Andrews in partnership with The Florida Department of Citrus hosted a Florida-Style Tailgate Event in NYC. You can learn more about the event and check out Erin’s tips & recipes to make this your best tailgating season ever HERE.

Huggies Little Snugglers - Go Ahead, Share Your Wish! #MC (Sponsored)

"I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Huggies and Target. I received samples and a promotional item to facilitate my review.”"

If yours is the first hug your baby feels, don’t you want the second one to be just as good? With lots of sensitively issues in my little one, we feel quite lucky to have NEW! Huggies® Little Snugglers Diapers to gently protect him day and night. Featuring unbeatable skincare and a GentleAbsorb* Liner for a cushiony layer of protection with hundreds of tiny absorbent pillows to help draw mess away from your baby’s delicate newborn skin.



Maybe it was due to my sons prematurity or maybe he would have had sensitive skin no matter what, but with all of the issues he underwent the first month of life, it was extremely important that suffering an irritating rash as a result of his diapers didn't become just another issue we were having to combat. The only diapers that were up to the task of gently cradling my newborns skin in cotton soft comfort inside and out, while providing top notch protection were, Huggies® Little Snugglers Diapers.


I’m sure it is no secret we’re a Huggies Family. I’ve mentioned many times since my son’s birth how lucky we were to have Huggies. But, the reason isn’t just because my son tolerates them so well. My son has finally reached 13lbs at 5mths and we’ve just made the switch to size 2 Little Snugglers. Now that my little guy is more active, we’ve begun to realize how important having the right fit in a diaper is. Huggies Little Snugglers provide the best fit for my son with a unique stretchy SnugFit waistband and a flexible, pocketed back waistband to help keep in the mess. There is also a yellow wetness indicator on the front of the diaper that makes it easy to tell without waking resting baby, when a change is needed. The yellow line will simply turn blue when baby is wet letting you know it’s time for a change.



You can find Huggies® Little Snugglers nationwide at your local drug store, grocer, or mass retailers available in five sizes, from Preemie (up to 6 lbs) through Size 3 (16-28 lbs). I usually pick up our diapers at Target thanks in part to their great deals. This week for instance you’ll get a $10 gift card with purchase of 2 select Huggies products! Target is also very stress free for me; it’s clean, easy for me to navigate through the aisles with my troops, and I’m never stuck waiting on line. 

If you’re a mom-to-be you’ll also find creating a registry at Target is simple and usually comes with a lot of perks. Creating a registry is free and I have no doubt you’ll find everything you need for baby’s first year and beyond in Targets awesome baby section, from cribs and rockers to sleepers and wipes. Oh, and did you know that after your registry date ends, Target will send you a percent off coupon so you can pick up any necessities still left on your registry? That’s pretty cool! But, something else is happening between Target and Huggies right now that is equally impressive!




Share Your Wish

Right now when you create a registry at Target you can enter your registry link in the Huggies Register your Wish Sweepstakes and be entered to win free diapers for an entire year simply for registering your wish! So if you’re a mom-to-be or know of one, make sure she knows to register her wish. It’s only takes a minute and she could be set for diapers for quite some time!
