Mom Central received a Viatek’s Life Juicer to facilitate this review. The views expressed here are entirely our own. With fresh New Year’s resolutions still on our minds, many of us continue to commit ourselves to eating right and focusing on our bodies as the year goes on. For some, that pact comes in the form of a strict diet. For others, it’s a daily exercise regimen. Whether your health plan involves partaking in an intense juice cleanse or simply increasing daily fruits and vegetables, Viatek’s Life Juicer will come in handy in achieving your healthy eating goals. While juicing proves a great way to bulk up daily fruit and veggie intake, many often criticize the process for leeching the nutrients out of foods. The Life Juicer, however, has adopted a new method of juicing that releases 60% more vitamins, minerals, phytonutrients, and enzymes than standard juicers. Rather than squeezing the contents and leaving the “good stuff” behind, the Life Juicer maintains the health benefits of the foods in their natural states.

Join us Wednesday, March 12th for the #SingleMomsClub Twitter Party from 1-2 PM ET / 10-11 AM PT! From catching up with old friends to leaning on new ones for support during difficult times, we will be chatting about the incredible bond women form in friendships as seen in Liongate’s new film, The Single Moms Club.
The Single Moms Club
Disclosure: Lionsgate Entertainment is a client of Mom Central Consulting. This weekend, grab your girlfriends, find a sitter, and prepare for a ladies night out for a break from kids and responsibilities. This Friday, March 14, Lionsgate releases The Single Moms Club, a story of five single Moms who put aside their differences in the midst of a school dilemma with their kids to form a support group. Throughout their journey, the five women find inspiration and laughter in their new sisterhood and help each other overcome the obstacles that stand in their way. This feel-good movie, directed by and starring Tyler Perry as well as Nia Long, Amy Smart, Cocoa Brown, Wendi McLendon-Covey, and Zulay Hanao, reminds us of the incredible bond women form in friendships and promises to leave us smiling after it ends. Check out The Single Moms Club trailer below!
Laser Cut Styles from ECCO Shoes
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.
Logitech PowerShell – The iPhone Game Controller
Mom Central received a complimentary sample of the Logitech PowerShell to facilitate this review. The views expressed here are entirely our own. Great for long road trips or air travel, the Logitech PowerShell provides easy and convenient access to a variety of video games, both educational and action-based, without the hassle of having to purchase and transport the latest gaming console or individual hardcopies of video games. Available for download in the App Store, games include LEGO The Lord of the Rings, Star Wars, Sonic, and more. Compatible with the iPhone 5, iPhone 5S, and iPod touch, its console-style controls — including a directional pad, shoulder bumpers, and face buttons — create an authentic gaming experience, whether it be for yourself or the kids.
Handleband Smartphone Mount
Mom Central received a complimentary sample of the Nite Ize HandleBand Smartphone Mount to facilitate this review. The views expressed here are entirely our own. The average grocery-shopping excursion with kids in tow can be quite the undertaking. Imagine walking through the store, keeping an eye on the little ones, pushing the shopping cart with one hand and reading the list of groceries in the other. The phone rings. With hands full, you miss the call. For Moms busy and on the go, the Nite Ize HandleBand proves a handy accessory. This Smartphone bar mount allows you to securely attach most mobile phones, with or without a case, to almost any sized handle bar — whether it be your bike, jogging stroller, or shopping cart — providing you with easy and convenient access to answer calls and use your favorite mobile apps. For instance, using the mount, you can read your list of groceries off of your Smartphone hands free or easily access your favorite playlist during a weekend bike trip.
Finish Power & Free
By Stephanie Kaufman Disclosure: I’m part of the Finish Power & Free Alliance of Moms and received complimentary product samples to facilitate this review, as well as compensation. The opinions expressed here are my own. Here in the Northeast, our year started off with a flurry of snowstorms and bone-chilling temperatures sparked by the ubiquitous Polar Vortex. While my family loves winter activities such as cross-country skiing and snowshoeing, we also enjoy hunkering down with a hearty meal in front of a roaring fire when the temperatures plummet and winds begin howling. Food plays an enormous role in our lives. So much so that my husband and I view both cooking and eating as significant activities. In fact, as 2014 began, I resolved to cook more hearty vegetarian fare at least once a week and when the air turned frigid, I used it as an opportunity to explore more soups and stews.

Chateau Mont-Redon Cotes du Rhone
Mom Central received two bottles of wine to facilitate this review. All opinions are our own. When winter temperatures remain frigid, nothing feels better than comforting meals that remind you of warmer times, and pairing that with a great wine makes it even better! This summer I spent some time traveling around the Rhone Valley in France. After too many days bundled up in my heavy winter coat looking at snow, I longed for the memories of being in a sundress, overlooking a vineyard and sipping on an amazing red wine. I knew I needed to take action immediately, and as tempting as buying a plane ticket was, I settled for recreating the experience at home. I love Cotes du Rhone, and I was very excited to make the Chateau Mont-Redon Cotes du Rhone the star of my virtual trip back to France.
