My 3TV Segment: Smart Summer Solutions Stuff

If you caught my KTVK 3TV segment on the Your Life Arizona show today and want more details on the stuff I showed, it is all  here….

Summertime brings all kinds of stuff like travel, summer break from school, hot dry temps and more.  To keep summer fun and manageable, I found some cool gadgets that work great for solutions to summertime issues sun damage protection, traveling with kids, camping smart and more.  I also found some stuff that is cool for summer in fashion and fun.  Read on to see if one of your summertime issues is solved here and let the summer fun begin as you work to stay cool and keep the kids entertained.

Smart Snacking

With the kids home from school, snacks become a required part of the daily routine, which can throw parents off the diet track and contribute to unhealthy eating and weight gain in everyone.  So, my family came up with some smart snack ideas.  Here are a couple of our summer snacks that we place ahead of time on fun brightly colored Re-Play dishes.  I love these cool plates because they are made from recycled milk jugs, so they are earth friendly.  We try to live life as green as we can.  Here are some of our snack ideas…

*Red, white & blue food – Red frozen grapes (tastes like popsicles when eaten frozen), blueberries and popcorn without butter.

*A better chocoholic snack – Dark chocolate squares with almond butter for dipping or strawberry slices with dark chocolate syrup for dipping

*Guac & cucumbers instead of guacamole and chips

*Eat to hydrate snack pack – watermelon chunks, celery sticks with peanut butter and tomato slices with mozzarella cheese and a basil leaf.  Watermelon, celery and tomato are all hydrating foods.

The fun Re-Play dishes for your easy and earth friendly summer snacking are sold for $18 for a set of $6 at Teresa’s Creative Gifts on Facebook.  The Re-Play snack cups sell for $21 for a set of six and can be ordered at Teresa’s Creative Gifts on her Facebook account or email her at [email protected] or call 602-710-9181.  These dishes are made for babies, toddlers and kids and we also use them for our summer snack dishes as described above.

Smart Camping

Plan to camp this summer? Check out these cool accessories for smarter camping.  And some of these items make good Father’s Day gift ideas, too.

*Adventure Bracelet – This unisex bracelet can be worn or tied to backpack.  Multiple mini tools are all packaged neatly in the bracelet that includes a compass, temperature gauge, knife, screwdriver, whistle, scraper, fire starter, bottle opener and the cord can be cut if needed.  Teresa’s Creative Gifts sells 2 of these for $10.

*Fit Zip Illuminating Waist Pack – This expanding fanny pack holds a bottle of water, smart phone, keys and more.  Plus, it has a USB charging port and three LED flash modes so you can be seen when camping, hiking, biking and more. $15 each or 2 for $25 at Teresa’s Creative Gifts.

*O2COOL Battery 5 Inch Portable Fan – My family is addicted to sleeping with a fan, so if you are going camping, this portable fan will do the trick to keep you cool.  It also has a USB cord with an adapter for use in hotel rooms, etc.  I also like the white noise that this fan provides, which is nice when falling asleep away from home. Sells at Walgreens for $12.99

*Boiron Calendula Cream – This is a terrific go to homeopathic cream for all sorts of ailments like cuts, scrapes, minor burns, chaffing, bug bites and sunburn.  Calendula contains the natural ingredient, Garden marigold, which has been used for centuries as a healing and soothing substance. The light texture is ideal for use on dry or chafed skin and it is soothing and moisturizing.  This is such great stuff to know about for camping and for all sorts of summer activities that can result in skin issues.

Smart Sunning

Out in the sun for fun?  Don’t forget to protect yourself, especially here in the desert.  Here are some of my go to smart sun protection picks for all ages…

*La Roche Posay sunscreen – I like this line because different options are offered like the La Roche-Posay Anthelios Dermo-Kids Gentle Sunscreen Lotion SPF Broad Spectrum 60 that is paraben-free and fragrance free.  I also like the Oil Free La Roche-Posay Anthelios Clear Skin Dry Touch Sunscreen because it doesn’t cause breakouts.  This one is also free of parabens and fragrance.  This brand is sold at CVS stores, Walgreens and Target.

*Sun Burnt Advanced After-Sun Gel – I keep a bottle of this on hand every summer because usually someone ends up getting too much sun.  This nonsticky formula is gentle on already sensitive skin and rehydrates chapped and burned skin with aloe, Echinacea, calendula and cantharis. These natural actives soothe, heal and rehydrate skin.  I buy mine at Walgreens.

*Flapjacks Reversible Hats for kids – With UPF 50+ protection, this cute reversible hat is a must for babies, toddlers and young kids.  90% of sun’s rays are blocked out with this hat.  Sold at Teresa’s Creative Gifts for $25 and because it is reversible, it is like you are getting two hats for the price of one!

I also showed some stylish and cute hats and bling visors in my segment.  All sell at Teresa’s Creative Gifts and the links are in my blog at managedmoms.com.

Smart Summer Kids Travel Tool

I love when I find parent invented tools that work, especially when it comes to traveling with kids, not an easy thing to do.

*Lugabug – Busy mom, Jennie Helman, came up with the idea for Lugabug when she was traveling with her young children at a busy airport. Lugabug is a child’s travel seat that secures to luggage, creating the experience of fun, safe and efficient transport for kids. It’s a collapsible, economical and multi-purpose family travel accessory for quality-conscious buyers who prefer a compact product that minimizes their load, not adds to it, and reduces chaos while traveling.The child travel seat secures in seconds without taking up extra space. It is multi-functional and versatile and can also be used as an extra pocket when hung over luggage, a camp chair and/or a sitting pad. The top strap can also be adjusted and worn over the shoulders to carry extra stuff. It is intended for children aged 2 or older; maximum weight of 60 lbs. Made in the U.S.A. It is available for $64 at www.lugabug.com.

Fun Summer Stuff

I found some fun summer stuff as I was putting together the smart summer stuff, so I had to share.  Love these items!

*4th of July stuff – Look no further than Teresa’s Creative Gifts for all kinds of red, white and blue loot to have you in the spirit of the day come the 4th.  I showed the red, white and blue giant makeup/all-purpose bag ($26) and the red, white and blue scarf/vest (sells for $25 at Teresa’s Creative Gifts).  She has a ton of 4th of July items, so take a look to be in the red, white and blue spirit with your dress, accessories, decor and more.  Shop Teresa’s Creative Gifts at her facebook account here or email her at [email protected] or call 602-710-9181.

*BigMouth Inflatable Pool Party Beverage Boats – I saw these last year at more expensive department stores, so how fun that these are now available for less at Walgreens for $6.99 for a set of two.  Unicorn and donut shaped inflatable drink holders float in the pool and keep cups close and upright.  So fun!

Did I share any smart summer tools or fun summer items that you will use?  Any I should know about for my blog and segments?  Share here in the comments section.

Happy Summer!

Five Fabulous Travel Tips As Seen In My 3TV Segment

Just in time for your summer travel plans, I have put together my top five fabulous travel tips that I swear by plus a few amazing places I recommend for family travel, both local and far away. If you caught my segment on the KTVK 3TV morning show, Your Life Arizona, and want more information about the travel tips I shared, here is the information with the links to the different items and places I recommend.  And be sure to go to my blog’s search bar to look up your desired destination to see if we have covered it.

Travel Tip #1 – Packing/Planning Fail Safe Forget Nothing Tool 

Once I discovered the Pack This! Travel list pad by Knock Knock, I have never looked back when it comes to packing planning. I call it packing planning because when an item is left behind, it will usually cost time and money to either purchase what was forgotten or have it shipped, which can be costly.  The Knock Knock Pack This! Pad is my favorite travel tool ever.  It is a handy exhaustive one page at a glance packing list that includes everything one could ever think of to pack for a trip.  Items that I wouldn’t consider like an umbrella, binoculars, bug spray, sunscreen and more. Every time I use this list, I forget nothing and my packing is done faster and is more efficient.  I swear by this and I buy my pad (60 sheets 6 x 9 size) for $6.99 at knockknockstuff.com and at amazon for only $4.85.

Travel Tip #2 – Best Wrinkle Free Clothing Tip Ever!

I don’t remember where I first heard this tip years ago, but I have never arrived with a wrinkled garment since. Here’s hoping it works for you since it has been failsafe for me. Simply dry clean the garments that you want to arrive wrinkle free before you travel.  The trick is to keep the clothing covered in the dry-cleaning plastic wrap it came home in.  Gently fold dry cleaned clothes on hanger and still in dry cleaning wrap and place on the very top of your suitcase after all other items are packed.  Give it a try. I have been pleasantly surprised how this has worked for me every single time.

Travel Tip #3 – Suitcase Type

Be loud and bold with your suitcase design for several reasons.  If your suitcase is a unique and colorful design, you will find it fast when it is coming off the conveyer belt at baggage claim.  Plus, if it is lost in transit, it will be easy to describe to airport and airline personnel.  I also finally bought a larger roll away suitcase that fits all my items.  We women do pack a lot and that is because we have a larger variety of shoes for different outfits and occasions, we tend to pack some our kids’ things with ours as well, we have more accessories than men typically do, etc.  Buying a larger than average suitcase has made me a one suitcase gal now.  I didn’t think that was possible!  So, consider buying the larger rollaway version if you usually have two suitcases.

Travel Tip #4 – Research Airport

Chances are that you will spend a good deal of time at airports.  Arriving early or being delayed, I have learned to research the airport I am traveling to ahead of time.  Doing this has made the trip even more fun.  I know that airports don’t sound fun, but since you must spend some time there, why not get there early for less stress, get all checked in and then enjoy yourself a little.  Plus, some airport websites offer coupons redeemable at the different stores and restaurants.  For example, San Antonio International Airport has coupons for airport restaurants, stores and more, including a tasty wine themed eatery.  So, check your airport website to see what is available and if coupons are also offered.  Here are some of my favorite airport attractions, so if you are stuck there for a bit, try these unique spots…

*Vino Volo in San Antonio International Airport – This cool restaurant offers gourmet wines from around the world.  I ordered a flight of red, white and champagne when I was there.  It was very relaxing and enjoyable to get to sample wines with a nice salad before I boarded my flight. Plus, I could use the coupon I accessed from the airport website to purchase a bottle of wine sold there if I had decided to buy some Vino.

*Be Relax in LAX – The last time I was at LAX, I enjoyed a very well done 10-minute shoulder, head and neck massage at Be Relax in Terminal 1 at LAX.  It set me back $29 (and I added a tip), but it was worth it because it was really good and therapeutic.  Plus, it is nice to board feeling somewhat relaxed.

Those are just two examples.  I also like that our airport here in Phoenix, Phoenix Sky Harbor has a ton of local favorite restaurants in the different terminals. So be sure to check the different airport websites to know where to go to eat, shop and relax while you wait.

Travel Tip #5 – Check my Blog!

I absolutely love travel blogging, so whenever I go anywhere, whether it be a staycation in Tucson, or all the way to marvelous Maui, I share my specific city recommendations in the travel section of my blog.  So, before you go, enter your destination city into my blog’s search bar to see if I have covered it. I also have team writers who have reviewed a Disney cruise and more. Here are some of our fun recommendations to some of my favorite travel destinations…

*Maui – my blog lists our top ten things not to miss in Maui and my family’s #1 favorite attraction is the Twin Falls hike that is beautiful and family friendly. We were especially impressed with the package that we booked called Hike Maui that included kayaking, snorkeling and the wonderful Twin Falls hike where we got to taste food right off the trees on our way to the waterfalls.  Once at the stunning waterfalls, we could jump off cliffs into the water and swim in freshwater pools.  We were also given Awapuhi plants, which contains the organic ingredients that Paul Mitchell uses in their Awapuhi shampoo.  My kids opened the plant and washed their hair under the waterfall.  It was such a cool day and purchasing the 7-hour activity package was the way to go. I have all the links to all of our Maui recommendations in my Maui article here.

 

*Washington DC – One of our favorite Smithsonian museums is the Newseum and a lot of tourists don’t consider this relatively new attraction.  It is like visiting an American history museum through the eyes of legendary and current journalists and it is very cool.  Exhibits like the original microphones used by FDR during the Fireside Chats, front pages from newspapers from around the world the day after the horrific 9/11 are displayed.  In addition, historic original newspaper pages from some of our country’s most famous events like when Marilyn Monroe was found dead, when the Hindenburg crashed, when wars ended and more.  There is another interesting section that shows a very cool and even emotional Pulitzer Prize photograph section and so much more.  I highly recommend this fascinating museum that also has an interactive area that lets visitors of all ages take home a flash drive of themselves being a reporter in a simulated news station.  So cool!  Check out my article with links about this here.

*Sedona – I cover a lot of local trips and staycations here in Arizona, too.  Check out my Sedona article to see where to stay, what to eat, what attractions to try like the Pink Jeep Tours and more.

It was very cool that our tour guide made stops along the tour so that we could get out and take pretty pictures as we learned about the history of lovely Sedona.

I have also reviewed most of the resorts here in the Phoenix area, as well as in Tucson and articles about Flagstaff, too.  My Sedona article is here.

*Amtrak train vacation – My son got to take an Amtrak train vacation with his grandparents so he wrote a comprehensive review for us on my blog.  He did a great job, so if you are considering a train vacation, be sure to see that article on my blog.  My son’s Amtrak train trip article can be found here.

Some of the other destinations we have reviewed on managedmoms.com is a Disney cruise, a California road trip that took us from southern California all the way up to San Francisco and more. 
So, before you go, check my blog and happy travels to you!

Our 3-Day Getaway to LA: Cool Things To Do

As I promised, here is my short blog article about the fun things my girl and I enjoyed during our brief visit to the City of Angels.  We loved our hotel stay at the London and you can read our hotel review about that here. We found some cool things to do when we ventured out of our cozy hotel room. Here is what we recommend that we thoroughly enjoyed…

First of all, our main reason for going to LA was to tour UCLA and we had a great time doing that.  That blog post is coming soon, so stayed tuned for that.  That took up most of our first day in LA. After that we didn’t have much time to spare before we had to head back to Phoenix, but we found some pretty cool things to do that you will want to try!

This particular spot is one that not a lot of people know about when it comes to getting that prized Hollywood sign picture. We will share the secret in the fun trip video below…

Watch this short video to see our trip highlights and to find out how we got to the perfect photo spot for the Hollywood sign.  We watched countless other tourists go the long way that isn’t as well placed as this spot is for that great Hollywood sign photo op.  Plus here is what else we did in our quick 3-day getaway to LA in our fun and short video and be sure to make it full screen for best view…

Video travel blogging is so much fun.  Here is more info about what we showed in the video….

 

*The London Hotel

For London Hotel information, check out our blog review here.

Love the rooftoop pool and scenic panoramic views

California dreamin’ until next time. We plan to return this summer to tour USC.  Stay tuned for that as we will share more fun things to do on a quick trip to LA.  Happy travels!

Walk/Ride/Taste & Shop San Antonio Riverwalk

Last week, I traveled to San Antonio to be with family during a surgery.  I arrived a few hours before everyone else did, so I did one fun thing. I revisited a wonderful place that I had explored before several years ago.  The very cool San Antonio Riverwalk.  I made the most of my limited time before greeting my family traveling in for surgery and it was a nice afternoon to be on my own for a bit. 
I am happy to report that the surgery went well and that my few solitary hours in the Alamo City were well spent.
I love to travel blog, so for my fellow lovers of travel, when in San Antonio, do this….

 

 

The Riverwalk — Whether or not you have just heard about it or been here before, do the San Antonio Riverwalk.  You will love the exercise you get, the food you taste, the boat ride, the shopping and more.  Here are a few highlights in pictures of my afternoon on the beautiful and fun Riverwalk.

Walk it for sure to get enjoyable exercise and to experience fun people watching. Seeing the water and the ducks are an added bonus and a great way to get your steps in and to keep your body moving.

Take breaks and and read about the Riverwalk landmarks and history.  With signs along the way, one can learn more about the Alamo city.  I personally enjoy learning about the city that I visit. There is so much to see and experience on the San Antonio Riverwalk….

Music by the local and talented mariachis!

I had to wonder if this couple was having some sort of memorable and romantic moment as the Riverwalk mariachis played! We will never know, but I enjoyed capturing this shot from afar.

A welcoming bench provides a place for a reflective rest from the lovely walk.
