Neoflam Cutting Board
Influence Central received complimentary Neoflam products to facilitate this review. All opinions expressed here are our own. I’m willing to bet that many women have the same issue when it comes to kitchens. A ton of tools and products (a lot of it in very cluttered cabinets – I’ll admit it!), and the majority is not even needed. To maximize space and efficiency, it’s important to own kitchen supplies that are versatile and long-lasting. That’s why I love the products from Neoflam. A company that was primarily known for their cutting boards, which we agree are fantastic, has now made its way into the cookware space as well. Needless to say the introduction of Neoflam products into my kitchen inspired a purge of old tools and products that no longer have a use.
Beautiful Fall Fashions from Lands End - Bright Cyan Floral design
Influence Central attended an event and received samples to facilitate this post. All opinions are our own. Over the past few years, I’ve grown to really love the Lands End brand. Everything I have in my wardrobe is so comfortable, versatile and timeless! I’m always excited to see what’s new in the next season’s catalog. This fall we had the exciting opportunity to try some of our favorite fall pieces as well as preview what’s new for Spring 2015! I’ve been a longtime fan of Lands End’s Ponte sheath dresses. I bought several that are staples in my closet, and always get compliments on the fit and patterns. The dresses are also so comfortable!

PajamaGram Snuggle Fleece Pajamas
Influence Central received a complimentary set of PajamaGram Snuggle Fleece Lavender Zebra Pajamas in order to facilitate this review. All of the opinions expressed here are our own. New England’s crisp weather and falling leaves leave little room for doubt or denial: we’ll soon be rushing in from the cold after a long day’s work, stomping the snow off our boots, with thoughts of comfort food and warm clothing top of mind. When we want to feel comfortable, cute, and cozy at home, pajamas are second-to-none for wrapping us in a nice, warm hug. PajamaGram offers a variety of pajamas, but their softest, and most sumptuous, made with a fleece fabric so downy and warm you’ll consider living in them for the winter come in its Snuggle Fleece line. The Snuggle Fleece pajama set makes for a thoughtful holiday gift for the entire family, and PajamaGram could not make gift giving easier. All women’s pajamas from their website include free packaging in a keepsake fabric gift bag (that can be monogrammed) along with a personalized card matching the bag.
Finding Fall Essentials with Zappos
Influence Central received samples to facilitate this post. All opinions are our own. Fall is synonymous with a few of my favorite things – football, apple picking, crisp weather, and jeans and boots! It’s always exciting to pull out my favorite fall sweaters, light jackets, and of course – make new purchases! I decided to start off my fall shopping at Zappos with some essentials that could be mixed and matched with some of my favorite season-appropriate outfits. I fell in love with these Marianne ankle boots from Jack Rogers. This summer, I saw so many women in the city looking chic and comfortable in their “Jacks” sandals, and was excited to see what the iconic brand offered outside the open-toed space. I absolutely love the neutral warm oak color, and the doily patterned trim makes these boots easy to dress up or down. The color of the stacked heel seamlessly matches the leather upper for a great look.
Tricks, Treats, and Truly Spooky Halloween Costumes from Petco
Influence Central received samples from Petco in order to facilitate this review. All of the opinions expressed are our own. New England officially welcomes fall, with the advent of beautifully-colored leaves and crisper temperatures. While enjoying the autumn apple picking, hunting for the perfect Jack-O-Lantern and decorating our homes, let’s not leave our pets out of the seasonal fun! With creative and adorable outfits and accessories from Petco, our favorite furry family members can now be as festive as our children this Halloween. Petco offers an enormous selection of costumes for your pets, catering to almost every whim and interest! Here, one of our Influence Central dogs, Jake, transforms into a tough zombie hunter with just one piece of apparel, making him happy and comfortable as well as ready for trick-or-treating with the family.

Disney Infinity 2.0 Marvel Edition review
Influence Central received a complimentary sample of Disney Infinity 2.0 Marvel Edition in order facilitate this review. All of the opinions expressed are our own. The game Disney Infinity 2.0 Marvel Edition is a very unique game where you can do many things such as play the Avengers level, build a town, create a racetrack and even build your own games. One of the first things that you will notice about the Marvel pack is that it comes with a clear version of Stark Tower which allows you to unlock an exclusive Avengers level. In this level you will unlock a special vehicle called the SHIELD motorbike. The graphics in the game make the characters look very plastic, like they are toys instead of the more realistic graphics some games have. I personally like this because it gives you a feeling that you’re playing with toys.
Anti-Imperfection Eye Therapy from Perfective Ceuticals
Influence Central received a complimentary sample of Perfective Ceuticals Anti-imperfection Eye Therapy in order facilitate this review. All of the opinions expressed are our own. We all have our morning beauty routines, but as the temperature grows colder, it can become harder to get out of bed to allow the time to properly prepare our faces and bodies for the day. For me, this routine includes coffee, but also great attention to my skin as the fall months tend not only to dry up tree leaves, but our pores as well. Perfective Ceuticals offers an Eye Therapy product that incorporates a growth factor to restore our skin, going above and beyond that which a general face cream can do. In order to maintain a youthful complexion, reduce fine lines, dark circles, and the under-eye puffiness I associate with grey fall mornings, we must use an eye cream that promises to keep our skin healthy and resilient.
Lands' End Cambray Shirt
Influence Central received samples from Lands’ End to facilitate this review. All opinions are our own. Fall is by far my favorite time to shop for clothes. Sweaters, boots, light jackets – no matter what I purchased last year, I always come up with a reason to buy more. But just because I love fall shopping doesn’t mean that I shouldn’t be smart about my purchases. I specifically look for versatile pieces that I can wear in a number of ways, so I can maximize each element of my wardrobe. I find that Lands’ End is a great place to shop for on-trend clothing items and accessories that quickly morph into wardrobe staples.
Jumpstarting Fall Workouts with Planet Fitness
Disclosure: Planet Fitness is a client of Influence Central and Maria will be receiving a complimentary membership. Stay tuned for her future post! The summer sun warming the early morning air and the daylight extending well past work hours encouraged my outdoor workouts. With the change in season, I now wake to the moon and go home in temperatures that require multiple layers – encouraging more time under the covers or on the couch than exercising. Planet Fitness, with over 800 locations nationwide, offers a high-quality, non-intimidating environment. It’s where I plan to counteract my tendency to hibernate in the colder weather and enjoy access to plentiful cardio and strength equipment. I worked out at my local Planet Fitness as a guest of a member friend last week and I marveled at the cleanliness and welcoming feel. I can’t believe I’m saying this: I’m so excited to start working out at a gym again! Find a club near you to join.
