WIFI SMART LED LIGHTBULB:

 

 

These smart wifi lightbulbs are multi-color, dimmable, and adjustable via voice control!

Alright y’all might not love this as much as I do, but as an avid toaster oven advocate who still sometimes misses the regular toaster function and likes a cute, non cluttered space, this ToastStation is the bomb.

 

WATERCOLOR BRUSH MARKERS:

 

 

I don’t have a whole lot to say about these watercolor markers other than they just look really pretty and fun. Great stocking stuffer idea!

The perfect excuse to throw a game night with your girlfriends, this Golden Girls Board Game is hilarious. Fun gift idea, too!

 

360 VIDEO CAMERA:

 

 

Okay you really have to go watch this video to get this thing, because it’s soooo cool! This 360 video camera literally captures everything around you. And then it connects to your smart phone for the editing where you can create the perfect clip from any section of your 360 shot. I know it’s confusing. Watch the video!

 

CHRISTMAS TREE STAND GENIE:

 

 

We own this Christmas Tree Genie Stand and it has changed Christmas for us. It’s SO easy to use and get your tree set up. It’s the best.

 

CINEMOOD PORTABLE MOVIE PROJECTOR:

 

 

How cool is this tiny portable movie projector?! It’s kid friendly, is pre-loaded with 120+ hours of Disney and and other kid’s entertainment, and even streams your favorite shows (netflix, amazon, youtube…)! Good for travel and outdoor movie nights!

 

FOOD SENSITIVITY TEST:

Ever wondered why you feel bloating, fatigue, stomach pains, headaches, etc. after eating certain foods? Turns out food sensitivities are super common. This Food Sensitivity Test can help you pin point what you need to stay away from!

 

HABIT AWARE TRACKER:

 

 

Want to finally quit biting your nails (raises hand)? You simply train this HabitAware Keen Bracelet for your specific behavior  that you want to kick (which take 30 seconds according to the description), and it will detect your hand movements and send a gentle vibration to alert you! So cool!

 

BOSE HEADPHONES WITH ALEXA:

 

 

And my most favorite find of all – the new Bose Wireless Headphones! Why are these so special? They come with Alexa voice control!! You can access texts, music, google.. You really have to see the video, it’s amazing – trust me.

I am SO SO very excited to share that our Bahamas home, Coral House, is currently featured in Coastal Living’s October issue! This was such a dream of mine and to see it actually come to life feels so  magical. 10 pages you guys (11 if you count the table of contents)!! Like, what?! So excited!!

 

 

We had an incredible group working on the story: Written by Stephanie Hunt, an amazing writer who just so happens to be my neighbor (we did our “interview” for the story over porch drinks). Styled by Liz Strong, a huge talent out of California who I basically hit the jack pot getting to work with. Photographed by Annie Schlecter, a much celebrated NYC based photographer who knew all the best angles and made the shoot relaxed and easy. And of course the team at Coastal Living, who I can’t thank enough for bring this story to life! Y’all are all incredible and I couldn’t and wouldn’t have chosen a better group to work with!

 

I would be so honored if you picked up a copy of the magazine!! In addition, you can view the story online at Coastal Living right here. And of course you can check out Coral House on instagram here and our Coral House website link right here!

In partnership with Athleta. Active. Healthy. Confident.

 

It’s an unordinary day on the blog today as Lilly leads me in yoga. Some things to keep in mind are 1) I don’t do yoga and 2) I don’t do yoga.

 

 

But, like most moms, I’m down for anything when it comes to spending time with my girl. And thanks to Athleta we both get to dress the part! Lilly practices yoga at school so she was able to show me a few of her favorite moves. Some I totally nailed (in my mind)…

 

 

And some I’m going to have to work on…

 

 

Everyone knows that exercising is more fun with a prop (especially when they’re pink).

 

 

At this point we’re professionals…

 

 

It makes my heart happy to see Lilly enjoy exercise. I want her to know that her potential is limitless, to be inspired to try everything she dreams of. Athleta Girl offers high quality, comfortable apparel with product features like hidden pockets, NEVEREND drawstrings, and chafe-free seamless fabric. They’re collection is versatile and well designed that Lilly can grow with. Plus, they’re leggings feel like pure butter. We are BIG Athleta fans here at our house and I highly recommend you check them out, too!

You can shop both my whole look and Lilly’s look on this unique Athleta page right here!

Hurricane season officially runs from June 1st – November 30th, but we are currently in the thick of it right now. Charleston is no stranger to flooding (this is an understatement) and as we prepare for Hurricane Florence this week, it’s a great time to go over the importance of being prepared for a natural disaster in your area.

 

 

In partnership with Clorox, I’m sharing a few items I have in my disaster preparedness kit. Having this kit with these survival essentials are crucial to help keep my family safe and prepared after a disaster strikes!

 

A few items that are in my preparedness kit:

 

  • First Aid Kit
  • Food & Water (+ extra granola bars for my kids, they love these)
  • Flashlights
  • Important family documents (insurance policies, identification…)

 

Some may not know, but at it’s most basic, bleach is made for disaster relief. For more than 30 years The Clorox Company has worked with the American Red Cross to donate Clorox Bleach following natural disasters. Clorox Regular Bleach, with CLOROMAX, can be used to purify unsafe water in the days following a natural disaster and for disinfecting moldy walls, floors, and household items as people return home and start rebuilding. It can be used in the following ways (see below for instructions):

 

  • Treat drinking water if authorities haven’t confirmed it is safe
  • Help kill bacteria such as E. Coli in places where floodwater was present
  • Clean up mold/mildew and prevention after flooding
  • Prevent mosquito breeding areas

 

In addition to including bleach in your natural preparedness kit, you should also have other necessities. The American Red Cross recommends additional supplies like:

 

  • Water: one gallon of water per person per day for at least three days, for drinking and sanitation
  • Food: at least a three day supply of non-perishables and a can opener
  • First aid kit
  • Clorox bleach: used as a disinfectant or to treat water
  • Flashlight and extra batteries
  • Battery powered or hand-crank radio and a NOAA Weather Radio with tone alert and extra batteries for both
  • Whistle to signal for help
  • Wrench and an assortment of tools to turn off utilities
  • Local maps
  • Dust mask to help filter contaminated air
  • Moist towelettes and garbage bags
  • Hygienic supplies
  • Fire extinguisher
  • Matches in waterproof container
  • Paper plates, paper towels, utensils
  • Extra clothing and rain jackets for each person
  • Infant formula and diapers if necessary
  • Sleeping bag or warm blankets for each person
  • Important family documents (insurance policies, identification, bank account records…)
  • Pet food and extra water for pets
  • Cash
  • Prescription medications and glasses
  • Books and activities for children

 

 

How You Can Use Bleach At Home:

 

 

Utilizing bleach sets the stage for disaster preparedness and is one small step to getting your home back in order after disaster strikes.

 

  • Treating Contaminated Water: When boiling off water for 1 minute is not practical, you can use Clorox® Regular Bleach2with CLOROMAX® for emergency water disinfection at home. All water of uncertain quality should be treated before it is used for drinking, food preparation, or hygiene:
    • Remove suspended particles by filtering or letting particles settle to the bottom.
    • Pour off clear water into a clean container.
    • Add 8 drops (or 1/8 teaspoon) of Clorox® Regular Bleach2with CLOROMAX® to one gallon of water, or add 1/8 teaspoon of the product to 1.5 gallons of water. Allow the treated water to stand for 30 minutes. Properly treated water will have a slight chlorine odor. If not, repeat dosage and allow the water to stand an additional 15 minutes. The treated water can then be made palatable by pouring it between clean containers several times.
    • For cloudy water, use 16 drops per 1 gallon of water, or add 1/4 teaspoon of this product per 1.5 gallons of water (3 drops to 1 quart). If no chlorine odor is apparent after 30 minutes, repeat dosage and wait an additional 15 minutes.
  • Remove Mold and Mildew: To remove mold and mildew at home, you can use Clorox® Regular Bleach2with CLOROMAX® on hard non-porous surfacesand items.
    • Disinfect all cleaned surfaces with a solution of 3/4 cup of Clorox® Regular Bleach2with CLOROMAX® diluted in 1 gallon of water.
    • Let the solution stay on the surface for at least 5 minutes before rinsing with clear water or allowing to dry.
    • Routinely check potential problem spots (e.g. Bathroom, laundry, mechanical room, etc.) for moldy odors, and disinfect often with a solution of 3/4 cup of Clorox® Regular Bleach2with CLOROMAX®diluted in 1 gallon of water.

 

 

Stay safe!!
