Mom Central received ECCO shoes to facilitate this review. All opinions are our own. It’s been the winter of the polar vortex, and I’ve never been more excited for Spring. While I’m a fan of seasons (and enjoy the various fashion options each inspire) I don’t think I’m alone in wishing spring a fond welcome after a winter of covering up in many layers of scarves, warm boots, down jackets, and the works. Over the weekend, I was very excited to switch out my sheepskin boots with these beautiful ECCO Pretoria Laser Cut Pumps. As with all other ECCO styles I’ve tried, these shoes proved to be strikingly unique and comfortable. The pumps made their “Spring Forward” debut as I met friends for brunch, then caught an off-Broadway play, and rounded out the day with a wine and cheese pairing – all the while feeling comfortable as ever in my new heels. My friends loved these shoes, and were quite taken by the laser cut design as well as the sturdy pump heel.

Mom Central received a Herbal Concepts Fan Shoulder Wrap to facilitate this review. All opinions are our own. I’m prone to getting tight muscles, kinks and spasms in my neck, lucky me! It’s the place where I tend to hold most of my stress. The discomfort usually creeps in over time, and takes some time to have the pain get better. While taking some ibuprofen helps, the other magic solution is heat. But the question becomes how can you carry on a regular day, at the computer, helping the kids, or running errands with a heating pad that won’t stay in place? The other morning I woke up with a horrible kink in my neck. I was so afraid to move in any way since I didn’t want the pain and discomfort to get worse. Getting dressed and drying my hair were a bit of a challenge, but I had to get to work but I was so afraid the pain and twinge in my neck was going to get worse. I thought I had a heating pad at the office, but it wasn’t at my desk. Thankfully, my colleague had a Herbal Concepts Fan Shoulder Wrap for me to use. It literally saved me!

New Balance 711 Trainer
Working Out in Comfort and Style with New Balance’s 711 Trainer Mom Central received complimentary New Balance trainers to facilitate this review. All opinions are our own. Spring is here, and with it comes warmer weather that will inspire us to spend more time being active outdoors. As we plan our new additions to our Spring wardrobe, we can’t forget about our workout and activewear. New Balance has launched the perfect new trainer that not only looks and feels great, but is designed with performance in mind to help us reach our fitness goals.
JCPenney Home Collections
Mom Central attended a JCPenney Home Collections event to facilitate this post. All opinions are our own. When the urge for spring cleaning hits, we often find that the satisfaction of a clean and organized house isn’t enough, and a desire for a new look can takeover as well. So it was perfect timing when we attended a JCPenney Home Collections event and learned how the store has a solution for both big home décor renovations and small touch-ups that can make a huge difference. This was the first time we saw JCPenney focus on its own design brand, even though it has been a part of the store’s collection for years. It’s great to see the spotlight on the Home Collections, as it certainly compliments the other great designers that JCPenney features, such as Liz Claiborne, Michael Graves and Jonathan Adler. The line addresses every room of the home, from accessories for the living room and appliances for the kitchen, to great looking and well-designed furniture for people who have modern tastes, to even more rustic styles.
Marpac Dohm-NSF
Mom Central received a Marpac Dohm-NSF to facilitate this review. All opinions are our own. Getting a good night’s sleep is critically important to our overall health and well-being. Not only does it make us feel refreshed and ready to take on the day, but there are even studies that show that a good night’s sleep can help with our physical health and weight management. While we learn more and more about just how important sleep is, it seems there are increasingly more distractions that can prevent us from catching our optimal amount of zzzs. Whether we have children who don’t sleep through the night or find ourselves over-stimulated from our smartphones, television, or busy lives in general, it’s sometimes hard to ease into a relaxing night’s sleep.
Bedgear Performance Bedding
Mom Central received a complimentary set of bedgear sheets to facilitate this review. All opinions are our own. Until I had my two children, I never had much trouble in the sleep department and on most nights slept very soundly with minimal tossing and turning. But ever since going through pregnancy, childbirth and nursing, my body temperate has never quite been the same. Now I find myself easily overheating while sleeping. Despite keeping the temps low in our house and using lightweight blankets, I still find myself having trouble sleeping because I’m so warm. Not an ideal situation when other “distractions” happen overnight as well, like my daughter’s frequent middle-of-the-night monster scares or my son’s incessant coughing. All these things add up to a very restless night’s sleep, leaving me tired and exhausted before even getting out of bed and tackling the day ahead!
