Summer break has come to an end, and school season is upon us! Carina is starting Kindergarten next week, and we have been busy getting everything ready!
I decided to buy some labels to help with keeping things organized, and chose two brands to try out. Our sweet friend also gave Carina a set of vinyl monogram labels for her birthday, so we are fully stocked!
The first set I chose are from Kidecals. This company advertises that all of their labels are waterproof, laundry safe, microwave safe, dishwasher safe, and BPA free.
Below is a photo of our “mixed set” of “blue bead” style lables. The set includes 24 classic labels (2″ round) and 48 mini labels (1″ round). You can personalize your colors and the information that you want your labels to include. http://kidecals.com/
The second set that I chose are from Name Bubbles. These are from the School Labels Pack, which allows you to choose from several different designs and includes pages of stickers for specific purposes – some are dishwasher safe and some are laundry safe. http://www.namebubbles.com/
Below is a snap of some vinyl monograms made by Simply Monogram It. I am looking forward to using these too! You can check out all the great options here: https://instagram.com/simplymonogramit/
It has been more than three months since we returned from Punta Cana, Dominican Republic, and my five year old granddaughter, Carina, is still excitedly talking about it!!
Not only was this our first trip to the Dominican Republic, it was also our first experience staying in an all-inclusive resort, the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Punta Cana. Everything was fantastico!
The stay included unlimited food, beverages and entertainment. The beach was beautiful, and the resort expansive. This is a family-friendly resort, and even though adult activities were available, there was also plenty of hoopla for families with children.
On the grounds are thirteen pools, nine restaurants, a golf course, miniature golf, tennis courts, shops, an arcade, a climbing wall, and a fabulous spa and salon. Nightly entertainment included dancing at multiple venues.
Another adventure that we enjoyed was to go off of the hotel property and take a tour of Monkey Land. Adorable tiny squirrel monkeys, living in their natural habitat, ate from our handheld food bowls, jumped up and down from our arms, and one even made a nest on top of my head! We then headed to Maria’s House, to tour a typical country home and coffee plantation. So unique!
Carina says that her favorite three things about our trip to the Dominican Republic were the dancing, the beach, and the food. I’ll second that!
Even at fifty plus, my skin looks amazing! It is practically wrinkle free and clear. Although some of this is good genetics, I attribute ninety percent to good hygiene. Having tried many, many cleansers I recommend and use daily NaturaBisse Facial Cleansing Cream with A.H.A. Although it is a bit pricey at $49.00, a small amount goes a long way! Its effectiveness has been dramatic in my case. Family members and friends compliment my skin when I use it regularly. When I am distracted and miss several days of use, people are silent. So, for noticeably improved skin, give it a try!
