Cat Paw by Wicked Cool Toys is the furry little toy that is going to be on a lot of holiday wish lists this year! Need a gift for that hard to shop for person? Want a cat but suffer from allergies? Cat Paw is your solution! It's hours of fun (literally) without the mess. 

LeSportsac Celebrates Disney Pixar with Newest Collection

Disclosure: I've partnered with LeSportsac for this giveaway. No other compensation was received. As always, all opinions are my own. 

Hi. My name is Dawn and I have a handbag addiction. Actually a handbag/accessories addiction. My husband knows this addiction all to well as he's been the one supporting this little habit of mine. I can't help it, I just can't resist a cute purse especially if it's Disney related. That's one of the reason's I love LeSportsac. They recently launched their newest Disney collection featuring our favorite monsters from Monstropolis. This collection comes on the success of their previous Disney collections - the Minnie Mouse Collection and the Tink Collection.

Two Years After Hurricane Sandy - Are You Prepared for a Disaster? #GetReady

#GetReady #PANJ4Good

Today marks the 2 year anniversary of Hurricane Sandy's US landfall. I can't believe it's been two years. I remember it like it was yesterday. I was glued to the tv watching the weather forecasts, the news stations, anything I could to stay up to date with what was happening. I remember being so worried about what was to come and that the tree in our front yard was going to come crashing through the front of our house. As silly as it sounds, this was the first time I really regretted buying a house without a basement. While we had minimal damage to our home and property so many others were not as lucky. My parents owned a property down the shore in Mystic Island, New Jersey that was ruined in the storm.  Like so many others in coastal towns throughout the state, the devastation was unimaginable.  Homes were completely destroyed. While her home was still standing, unlike so many others, it was completely flooded. By the water marks on the wall, we were able to tell that the water came in as high as the top of her stove. It's definitely something we will never forget.

Christmas Memories & Holiday Shopping #ChosenByKids

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post written on behalf of Sverve.  All opinions are my own. 
It's hard to believe that this year is almost over and Christmas is almost here. I actually love this time of year. I look forward to the holidays to decorate the house, bake cookies and of course shop for my kids. I love all of it. Watching my son open presents Christmas morning and seeing the joy on his face when he opens a coveted toy or present brings back so many memories of when I was little. The excitement of waking up and running down to the tree to see our presents was something I looked forward to all year long.

Disney Announced "Tinker Bell and the Legend of the Neverbeast" Coming March 2015

Tinker Bell fans rejoice! Disneytoon Studios returns to Pixie Hollow with the heartwarming adventure “Legend of the NeverBeast.” The new story explores an ancient myth of a fabled creature whose distant roar sparks the curiosity of Tinker Bell’s good friend Fawn, an animal fairy who’s not afraid to break the rules to help an animal in need. But this animal—massive and strange with glowing green eyes—is not really welcome in Pixie Hollow, and the scout fairies are determined to capture the mysterious beast before it destroys their home. Fawn, who sees a tender heart beneath his gruff exterior, must convince Tink and the girls to risk everything to rescue the NeverBeast before time runs out. Directed by Steve Loter (“Kim Possible”) and produced by Makul Wigert (“Secret of the Wings”), “Legend of the NeverBeast” roars to life in March 3, 2015.
