Building Forts - Doc McStuffins Style! #JuniorCelebrates

As you might have seen through Instagram & Facebook, Aubrey’s been having a special helper to get us through the potty training journey – The Diaper Fairy.  Before heading off to help another little boy & girl, she left one super awesome care package for Aubrey featuring one of our favorite Disney Junior characters – Doc McStuffins.

Back to School – Treat Your Hair with Nexxus #ColorAssure


We celebrated back to preschool for Aubrey last week.  Do you remember the excitement of returning back to school? Growing up that meant new supplies, a new uniform (yup, attended Catholic School from Kindergarten to 8th grade!), new backpack and sometimes a new hair cut.  I always had long hair, except for a brief tragic chop that I immediately regretted in 7th grade.  Long hair is fantastic, but it can also be a pain to make it look beautiful & {Read More}
