Nicole’s take:  Hillshire Farm is a brand I trust and the new Naturals line makes me feel so good about what I am giving my family! The re-sealable tubs are so important for keeping the meat fresh and I love that there is nothing added to these meats! My favorite was the honey roasted ham but the turkey options were also tasty! They were very fresh and I love not waiting in line at the deli for the same fresh from the deli flavor!

kidsrelieflogo

As a parent, it can be tough watching your child suffer from any pain associated with earaches. Not only do earachescause discomfort for your child, but they also contribute to many sleepless nights in your household. Luckily, Kids Relief Earache Oral Solution is the perfect solution for any child trying to conquer ear pain, ear pressure, inflammation, fever, and sinus or head pain.

img_earrelief

Kids Relief Earache Oral Solution can help alleviate all symptoms associated with earaches with no harmful side effects. That means your child’s fever, throbbing pain, inflammation and ear pressure will subside! The safe homeopathic formula works as fast-acting relief for infants and children, with no risk of overdose or drug interaction.

Kids Relief Earache Oral Solution is also incredibly easy to administer; simply give your child .75 ml orally and repeat every 8 hours and reduce with improvement or as directed by a healthcare professional. This product also comes in a great tasting grape flavor, making it easy for your child to take, and it is dye and sugar free! Kids Relief Earache Oral Solution retails for $6.99 and can be purchased at CVS locations nationwide.

Nicole’s take:  I had a lot of ear infections as a child and was hoping my own babies would avoid this but that isn’t the case.  In just 7 months Zoe has had 2 ear infections and has constant fluid in her ears. It seems like we are on our way to tubes so I was so excited to try the Kids Relief Earache Oral Solution.  I love that it is dye free and sugar free and she didn’t mind the flavor at all.  It did seem to help with the pain and hopefully will prolong when she needs the tubes!

ColgateTotal_logo-HR

Did you know that what goes on in your mouth can affect the rest of your body, and what happens in your body can have an effect on your mouth?

It’s true. Many diseases and conditions can affect your oral health, but Colgate Total® can help.

That’s because Colgate Total® does more than protect. When you use Colgate Total® toothpaste, toothbrush and mouthwash together, you can help improve your mouth health* in 2 weeks.

PDP-Mouthwash-LastingWhite-Large

BENEFITS

  • Helps protect against stains
  • Strengthens teeth
  • Remineralizes enamel
  • Helps prevent cavities
  • Fights tartar
  • Fights bad breath germs
  • No burn of alcohol

FLAVORS

Polar Freshmint™

When a single smile brings so much joy, it’s worth protecting with Colgate.

Colgate Total® toothpaste is clinically proven to provide 12-hour protection against plaque germs that can lead to gingivitis, an early form of gum disease. If left untreated, gingivitis can progress to periodontitis, a more serious and damaging stage of infection that can cause chronic gum inflammation and potential tooth loss. According to recently published findings from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, almost half of American adults age 30 and over have periodontal disease. Only Colgate Total® toothpaste provides both antibacterial protection and direct anti-inflammatory action. With the growing body of science linking oral health to overall health, this is an important benefit.

*Use together to fight germs, fortify enamel and improve gum health. Results improve with continued use.

For more information visit ColgateTotal.com.  Also find them on Facebook and Twitter.

Nicole’s take:  We are a Colgate family.  I trust Colgate and feel good about the products my family uses.  Oral hygiene and health is so important and there isn’t anything I wouldn’t do to keep my family healthy! I was excited to try the Colgate Total® Lasting White™ Mouthwash as I always want whiter teeth! It’s so easy to use a mouthwash like this as part of a twice daily routine.  You’ll get the great power of Colgate mouthwash with an awesome whitening power! I didn’t mind the taste at all and loved how clean my mouth felt.  The bonus is whiter teeth!

JILL SCHULZ AND A CHARLIE BROWN CHRISTMAS

Peanuts Worldwide is kicking off a year-long celebration of 50 years of A Charlie Brown Christmas! December 2014 marks the 50th time the beloved special will air on television. To launch the celebration, Jill Schulz, 56, the youngest of Charles M. Schulz’s five children, recently sat down with bloggers around the country to share her personal memories of her Dad; the family Christmas traditions that she shared with her siblings Meredith, Amy, Monte, and Craig; and, of course, the way that A Charlie Brown Christmas has touched her life and the lives of millions of fans across the globe. We’re kicking off a year-long celebration of 50 years of A Charlie Brown Christmas, and there are actually two 50ths to celebrate:

  • 50th time it will air will be this December 2014 on ABC
  • 50th year since it was created, produced and debuted will be December 2015.

Nicole’s take:  I am so happy to be an ambassador for Peanuts! We are marking the 50th anniversary of the airing of A Charlie Brown Christmas! and what a memory this program is from my childhood! Many of you know that I am Jewish and do not celebrate Christmas but pop culture has Christmas everywhere and we always watched Christmas TV specials.  My favorite was always A Charlie Brown Christmas! I know it was for many of you and now you watch with your kids and grandkids – this is how family traditions are made! 

Interviewing Jill Schultz, the daughter of Peanuts creator, Charles M. Schultz was so much fun.  Here are some of my favorite portions of the interview!

SchulzFamily

Jill is on the right.

Q:  Was there anything in the special that was similar to your childhood?

Jill: “There are elements that are supposed to come from my family. Like Lucy’s crabbiness came from Meredith. I’m told that Linus has a blanket because I always had a blanket.” But I can’t say there’s anything specific in the special.

“Dad was active in Sunday school when we were much younger, he taught there on Sundays for many years. So the Linus speech was something very important to him.”

“Lee Mendelson tells the story of meeting with the top guys at CBS—they said they loved the special, ‘But you need to take the Linus’ speech out.’ When Lee told Dad that he said, ‘Tell them to just forget it then.’ Now it’s become the most iconic part of the entire TV special. It’s one of my favorite parts because I know how important it was to my father.”

When producing the Christmas ice show at Knott’s Berry Farm, Jill suggested building a show around the special, and having the Linus character come to the center of ice, putting a spotlight on him and having him give the speech.

“The people at the theme park were kind of nervous, just like long ago. ‘Maybe we need to edit it.’ Because it was so important to my dad, I said, ‘We need to do it exactly as it happened in the TV special.’ Now the ice performance has a huge following, and one of guests’ favorite parts is seeing that performed live by the Linus character.”

Q: Did your Dad think the special would be around 50 years later?

Jill: “He wasn’t one to predict. The most important thing to him was drawing the comic strip. He’d always say, ‘I’m just a cartoonist.’ He was not setting out to make his cartoon famous, or sell merchandise. Those were everyone else’s ideas.”

“One thing he never understood was when people would say to him, ‘Mr. Schulz, you’re so successful now, why don’t you retire?’ He’d say, ‘Why would I spend my whole life to become successful at doing the thing I love to do, and then not do it?’ He passed away immediately after he decided he could no longer draw the strip. To him, it was all about drawing the comic strip.”

Q:Why do you suppose after 50 years, it’s still resonating with people?

Jill: “Because the characters, the experiences they have, in the strip and the TV show are things that every generation has, does, and will continue to experience in life. Football with Charlie Brown. Everyone experiences losing. Everyone comments on commercialism. It’s been happening for years, will continue to happen. Siblings teasing each other, fighting, even if they love each other.”

cbc

“All of these things are extensions of his own personality or things he would observe in others. He was always observing everybody, whether in the coffee shop at the ice rink, or on trips. He was a great observer of human nature. Like many of us, he hung onto and had a clear vision of his feelings as a child. That comes across in the strip and the special.”

Q: Who’s your favorite Peanuts character and why?

Jill: “My absolute favorite is Snoopy because I like his imagination and his free spirit, how he imagines whatever he wants to be. I had a pretend friend as a kid that everyone teased me about. And because he’s a dog and I love rescue animals. Then it would be Linus, because I like how calm he remains, how philosophical he is.”
