Clothesline Sandals from AEROSOLES
Mom Central received AEROSOLES shoes to facilitate our review. All opinions are our own. Some of our favorite summer colors were navy and white – and we found the perfect sandals to complement these seasonal looks (and our favorite outfits) from AEROSOLES! The Clothesline Sandals are quite possibly the most comfortable summer shoe around. We wore these all over town, on vacation, and then some. The plush sole serves as an excellent cushion for your foot, with much more support than a standard flip flop. There’s no uncomfortable thong between the toes. The zipper closure and wrap-around heel strap makes it easy to wear these shoes on the go – there’s no stopping your stride! If you’re in the market for another summer heel, we recommend the Plush Around! We have these shoes in navy, which matches our favorite summer outfits.

Pierce’s Scaly Adventures
As we move toward full-scale back-to-school season, kids soon will begin more traditional, in-class academics. Yet another approach to learning takes place each week on Pierce’s Scaly Adventures, a television show where the Curren family interacts with some of the most exotic animals in America. Inspired by their son’s love for all things reptile, the Currens – son Pierce, Mom Tanya, and Dad Rick – decided to share that passion with kids across the country and launched Pierce’s Scaly Adventures. The show offers educational information on a variety of animals, their habitats, and conservation-related issues, while also showing how much we can learn by simply getting outdoors.
 Le Creuset's Stainless Steel 4-quart Saucepan and Signature Cast Iron Skillet
Mom Central received a complimentary Signature 10¼” Cast Iron Skillet and 4-quart Saucepan from Le Creuset in order to facilitate this review. All of the opinions expressed are our own. Most of the time, my shopping is conducted with reliability and value in mind. But other times, I know exactly what I want and I’m willing to pay top dollar to get the very best. I’ve always viewed Le Creuset as the Cadillac of cookware: with top-of-the-line quality, style and functionality, and certainly capable of helping bring my cooking skills to the next level! For nearly a hundred years, Le Creuset has been finessing both its cookware and its reputation as a high-quality manufacturer of world-class cookware and kitchen utensils. From its original flame-colored French Oven to its heritage stoneware, Le Creuset’s classic designs prove immediately recognizable, and complement any décor.
Folding Utility Table from Honey-Can-Do
Mom Central received products from Honey-Can-Do to facilitate this post. All opinions are our own I get really excited when I discover quality products that help me stay organized and clutter-free. Honey-Can-Do is one of my favorite brands that helps me stay organized as well as display items in a clean, stylish way!
DIY lip balm with Handcrafted Honey Bee
Mom Central received a Do-It-Yourself Lip Balm Kit to facilitate our review. All opinions are our own Looking for a fun girls’ night activity? With our busy schedules, it’s fun to take some time out for ourselves, and we recently discovered a new way to spend time together that’s more exciting than our typical dinner parties or happy hours with Handcrafted Honey Bee. Handcrafted Honey Bee was started by the parents of two little boys, who became more conscious about the products and ingredients they put in and on their bodies after becoming parents. They started a bath and body business of their own, yet still received numerous customized requests from customers with specific needs and restrictions due to allergies and personal preferences.
Beauty Products for the Summer
Mom Central received products to facilitate this review. All opinions are our own. Spending time outdoors in the summer is a given.We love feeling the fresh warm air whether we are strolling in the park or visiting the beach. Where the warmer temperatures certainly lighten our mood, they can also do a number on our hair and skincare routine, and we’ve discovered a few new products this year that have helped us maintain a healthy look all season-long. For Our Hair: Infiniti Pro by Conair® Finishing Brush with One 'n Only® Replaceable Argan Oil Treatment Strip
Summer Essentials at Zappos
Mom Central received samples to facilitate this post. All opinions are our own. This summer seems to have just flown, and I can’t believe we have already found ourselves in early August! While it seems that the Fourth of July was just around the corner and July has zipped on by, we know that there’s still a lot of great summer weather and al fresco activities to enjoy before we find ourselves in fall. I’ve also noticed a few trends that I’ve had my eye on, and decided that I needed to add to my wardrobe before summer’s end, and went to Zappos to complete my warm weather essentials list!
Mom Central received a SIMON SWIPE game in order to facilitate this review. All of the thoughts expressed are our own. Some of my fondest memories come from family game night – throwing Monopoly pieces, accusing my brother of cheating in Scrabble, laughing at Catch Phrase – something about games unites the family, no matter what age. Perhaps one of the most challenging and frustratingly fun games that we all grew up with is SIMON, the memory game of a simple four colors that entranced us for hours. Now, we can throw the frustrating SIMON back into our game night rotation. Hasbro offers the nostalgia of the classic game with a new twist, offering SIMON SWIPE. This modern take on the classic recall game is based on a smooth swipe action (not so different from the motion to unlock your iPhone!) With a sleek new design, we battle a SIMON that is high-tech and modern but still has the same four colors and the same challenge: remembering whether or not to hit the green or the red button next.
