Monster High Giveaway ends 4/12 Canada Only

Powered by Mom brings you a Monster High Giveaway ends 4/12 Canada* Only 2 winners #MonsterHighHaunted

As always Mattel knows kids and they know how important “play” can be in a child’s development. Using their imaginations and just having fun is an important tool that helps children to learn. In fact in this mom’s humble opinion learning through play is one of the best ways for kids to learn and we as parents are some of the best play advocates out there! It is why that ever since my daughter was just a baby we’ve always made play time an important time together, encouraged her imagination and have always encouraged her to just be herself.

Lavender Oil and Peppermint Oil Nature’s Own Essence

Powered by Mom shares her Lavender Oil and Peppermint Oil Nature’s Own Essence Review

I absolutely love essential oils and one of my favorites is lavender oil. I have learned over the last year just how many uses there are for lavender oil besides it just having an amazing scent. I use lavender oil to scent my room to relax, to clean the house and even in the laundry. If you’d like to read more about some fabulous uses of lavender oil GO HERE to another article of ours on Eight Uses for Lavender Oil. Since I’ve had such fabulous results with utilizing lavender oil I’ve been want to try more essentials oils so that’s why I was thrilled when I was offered to review lavender oil and peppermint oil for a top quality company Nature’s Own Essence

With Easter coming I thought to myself wouldn’t it be wonderful to add these fabulous essential oils to some gift bags and baskets for us big kids? :)
