Mom Central was invited to a media event to cover the opening of Legoland Discovery Center. All opinions are our own. My four-year-old is a girly girl. Something about the insistence of tutus, tiaras and impromptu renditions of Frozen’s “Let It Go” in the supermarket aisles makes me scratch my head and wonder how she got this way. So when we were invited to go check out the new Legoland Discovery Center in Somerville, MA, I worried she might be bored. Sure, we play with Legos at home, but only the pink ones.

SouvenarteBooks
Disclosure: SouvenarteBooks is a client of Mom Central Consulting. With schools on hiatus for the summer, Moms everywhere know they have a decision to make. Nestled at home amidst the worn-out backpack, battered trombone case, and nearly out-grown gym shoes lay a mound of construction paper, ceramic sculptures, and paper-mâché creations. A year’s worth of art projects represent so much to Moms – even more than the beauty of each individual piece. These collections showcase our kids’ creativity, their passions, and their cognitive and emotional development. We can page through everything from mixed media pieces to charcoal sketches to first writings and see how much they’ve grown and evolved by looking at what they created at the beginning of the year and what they produced by the end.

If/Then Soundtrack Featuring Idina Menzel
Mom Central received the If/Then Original Broadway Cast Album CD to facilitate this review. All opinions are our own. I’m an avid theater fan, and since I live in the NYC area, I try to see as many Broadway and Off-Broadway shows as possible. Last month, I was fortunate to see the new musical If/Then starring (as John Travolta would say) the “wickedly talented” Idina Menzel. Though many of us (especially the children!) recognize Idina from being the voice of Princess Elsa in Frozen, I’ve been a fan of Menzel’s since she starred in the Original Broadway Cast of Rent. She then went on to win a TONY Award for portraying Elphaba (the Wicked Witch) in Wicked, and was so excited to see her return to the Broadway stage after all these years.

Stur
Mom Central received samples of Stur to facilitate this review. All opinions are our own. At the top of my health resolutions are two goals this year – drink more water, and cut down on my sugar intake. I’ve recently discovered a product that will help me tackle both in a delicious and refreshing way. I’ve always been a big fan of drinking water. In fact, I really can’t leave home without it. There’s constantly a glass of water on my desk and reusable portable bottle in my purse. I’ve found that by drinking more water, my skin has become clearer. In addition, I’ve felt more energized and less hungry. However, sometimes I look for a different beverage to go with meals or as an afternoon pick-me-up. As many of us have discovered, even drinks that position themselves to be “good for you” are loaded with a lot of sugar and ingredients that will ultimately affect your overall health. I’ve been wary of flavored water enhancers, as I didn’t want to risk adding something potentially unhealthy to my water.
Max Jeans Carnaby Street Chic Skimmer Jean
Mom Central received a pair of Max Jeans to facilitate this review. All opinions are our own Finding the perfect pair of jeans is difficult for anyone, but when it comes to buying white jeans, it can be even more challenging. We love white jeans for their classic look, and as Moms, we need clothes to serve a variety of purposes. White jeans can be dressed up or down, and pair well with a range of colors. But the hardest thing about white jeans is finding the right pair. Fit and quality are key, and from what we’ve uncovered on our shopping trips, many of the lower priced options have the dreaded “see-through” element that can quickly turn white jeans from classic to embarrassing.
Sturdi Tent Dog Tent
Mom Central received complimentary products from Petco in order to facilitate this review. All of the opinions expressed here are our own. Summertime has arrived, and we yearn to finally venture outside on hiking trips, camping excursions, or even just to bask in the sunshine on our patio. And it becomes an even better experience when we can also spend some quality time with our favorite furry friends. With Petco’s line of summer gear our dogs become our best outdoor companions – joining us in all of our favorite adventures. Now, summer essentials include collapsible water bowls, portable dog tents, chew toys, and comfy blankets so that the entire family – pups included – has everything it needs to make this an incredible summer outdoors.
Fourth of July Fashions with Zappos
Mom Central received products to facilitate this post. All opinions are our own. Independence Day has always been one of my favorite holidays. Growing up in New England, so many of the neighboring towns embrace the Fourth of July with parades and communal celebrations. As a child we used to plan out our parade and fireworks watching routes, trying to get to as many of the nearby towns' celebrations as possible. As I've grown older, the traditions only get better and better, and consist of fun, relaxed time outdoors. One of the reasons I love the Fourth is it really seems to signify that summer is in full swing, with friends and family around to celebrate with sangria, cornhole, bocce, and more. Because my Fourth of July festivities always include outdoor fun, it's important for me to find an outfit that is cute and casual. I turned to Zappos and found the perfect outfit that will keep me cool and comfortable this holiday.
