Smart is the New Cool with Project Mc² on Netflix #StreamTeam

I’m a compensated member of the Netflix Stream Team.

MC2CARDMy daughter has been soooo excited about the new Netflix Original Series, Project Mc², that premiered on August 7th. The show features four supercool teen spies who show how girls can use their science smarts and math problem-solving skills to help save the world. Project Mc² helps put a fun spin on the school stuff they might be dreading — math homework, spelling tests, and science reports. Have you had a chance to check it out yet? Here’s the trailer:

Netflix sent us some fun stuff for my daughter to get into the school sleuthing spirit (Thank you, Netflix!!). She is SO excited about it all, she is such my kid, with a hearty love of mysteries and science experiments. These are right up her alley!

Other than Project Mc², also new on Netflix this month: the offspring of favorite fairytale characters in Ever After High’s new Way Too Wonderland adventure (which debuted Aug. 14) empower kids to write their own life stories. Whether Royal or Rebel, your actions, behaviors and choices are your own to make.

Get the little ones ready for new experiences with shows like the Netflix original Dinotrux from DreamWorks, premiering Aug. 14 — prehistoric hybrid dinosaur-construction vehicles team-up to use their different skills to solve problems and show that even the most uncommon of duos, like Ty-Rux and Revvit, can form friendships of a lifetime.

DTCARDThey can also go anywhere and be anything by letting their imaginations soar on a Reading Rainbow journey, now available to stream. (YES!!!!)

Don’t forget to check out for some fun activities and such for kids related to the new show!

Marvel Avengers Leggings at Kohls

I’ve partnered with Kohl’s for the #MakeYourMove campaign.  I'm a huge believer in focusing your workouts towards things you're passionate about. As a former dancer and cheerleader myself, I find dance-based workouts coupled with strength and stretching are my jam, yo! Pilates and Yoga? Yes, please! I'm also pretty passionate about shaking my hiney to some hip-hop, too. It's fun cardio, baby! The kids might think I'm "too old," but I subscribe … Keep Reading

Get Fit and Inspired with Yoga and Gaiam at Kohl’s #MakeYourMove

Comfiest Yoga Tee EVER

I’ve partnered with Kohl’s for the #MakeYourMove campaign.  There's just something about doing yoga in the mornings for me. It doesn't even have to be a long routine or anything - just a simple rotation of poses - mountain pose, forward fold, downward dog, warrior 1, upward dog, with a repeat - simple, awakening, and such a fantastic start to your day! The other day, I went to wipe my face while working out, and a piece of my old yoga mat … Keep Reading

Preteen son using the Veggetti

I’ve partnered with Kohl’s for the #MakeYourMove campaign.  I mentioned in my last post how I've gotten my fitness groove back, and how exciting it is to see the changes to my body as well as to the fit in my clothing. My husband has joined me in this journey, too - we're eating healthier, working out everyday (sometimes twice) and we're really seeing the effects of these healthy changes in so many ways. While sitting at the dinner table a … Keep Reading

Making My Move with Kohl’s This Summer #MakeYourMove

Kohl's Make Your Move cute FILA SPORT® running capris

I’ve partnered with Kohl’s for the #MakeYourMove campaign.  2015 has been a doozy of a year, and I'm sad and ashamed to say that I lost my way a little, friends. All the hard work that I've done over the years to get my body (and me) back, I feel as though I completely undid it all (even though, I know it's not fully true). But, it sure felt that way. Trying to slip into outfits and things I used to wear for special occasions and such, only to … Keep Reading

Family Fun with Classics from Childhood #StreamTeam

Scooby-Doo Mystery Incorporated

I’m a compensated member of the Netflix Stream Team. I just read that it's the 30th anniversary for both "St Elmo's Fire" and "The Goonies." Thirtieth anniversary. HOLY HANNAH, I'm old. Haha. The kids and I have been reliving a few of the classics on Netflix lately, with it being particularly stormy, especially on days we wanted to go to the pool. But we're getting our fix of fun shows from when I was a kid, such as Scooby Doo, and the new … Keep Reading

Mom Gets The Night Off with Papa John’s – Worry Free Dinner with Better Ingredients

Picnic in the backyard with Papa John's

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Papa John's and Tapinfluence. Many years ago, when we were searching for homeopathic ways to help our daughter's ADHD, I stumbled across something called the Feingold Diet. (I've talked about this before). At the time, I'd thought we were doing pretty okay in the food department, but it wasn't until I poured over their list of "approved" and "unapproved" foods that I realized the stuff … Keep Reading
