VTech Flipsies Review, VTech Flipsies

I remember when I was a little girl dreaming of being a performer. Disney on Broadway was my goal. I would practice my singing, dancing, and acting for hours on end. I also had aspirations to be a zoologist, photographer, and a princess! Now I listen as my kids are setting their goals for what they want to be when they grow up. 

When it comes to dreaming about the future, nothing is too crazy! My daughter and I love the new VTech Flipsies. These sweet girls have big dreams too and they love using their imagination to pursue those dreams. My girl is sharing her VTech Flipsies review and giveaway! Read on to learn how you can win some for your little dreamer!

VTech Flipsies Review, VTech Flipsies

Each Flipsie has her own unique dream and personality that come to life through her playset. The 2-in-1 doll transform from her everyday look to her dream look by changing her hair, clothes and accessories. The MagicPoint™ technology allows the Flipsies to interact with their playsets and other Flipsies playsets. They can even talk to one another with MagicChat™! 

We really loved exploring the new playset. This is definitely a toy I would have wanted as a little girl. The way the dolls chat with each other and interact with both sets is really cool. Each doll has a variety of sayings and more are unlocked as you place them in the different MagicPoint™ spots. The playsets are well made and won’t fall apart easily. Eva and Lexi come with a change of outfit, hair, and other accessories to bring their dreams to life! This is a great toy for young girls who are dreaming big and having fun! allows the fun to continue with games, videos, quizzes, and more!

Did you know? Most people do not get enough protein to meet their daily requirements. After water, protein is the most abundant substance in the human body. So I would say it is pretty important! Protein boosts metabolism, helps maintain a healthy weight, boosts immunity, carries Oxygen throughout the body, and aids in muscle growth and recovery after a workout. The problem always seems to be getting protein when and where we need it. Now you can get your protein wherever you go with Skinnygirl Protein Shakes and Bars!
I have shared before how Skinnygirl bars are my purse/car/luggage/on-the-go staple for keeping me feeling energized throughout my day. And now I am excited to share Skinnygirl is introducing their NEW Skinnygirl Protein Shakes! What do I like more than bars? Shakes! They make me feel like I’m getting a treat but you know without all the calories and junk that treats typically have. Also, the Protein Tasty Nutrition Bars have been reformulated to pack in more protein with less calories! 
Skinnygirl Protein Shakes:
Skinnygirl Protein Tasty Nutrition Shakes are the newest addition to the Skinnygirl family of products. You will be able to pick them up at Walmart first, and coming soon to other retailers. These shakes come in 2 yummy flavors: Rich Chocolate Brownie and Vanilla Bean Sundae. Yes they are as delicious as they sound! Both flavors are:
  •  80 calories
  • 0g sugar yes ZERO sugar. And no you don’t miss the sugar! 
  • 12g protein
  • Low Fat
  • Gluten Free
  • $5.78 at Walmart

I know you want to know my favorite. Honestly. I had a hard time choosing. Typically I am a vanilla shake kinda girl. But the chocolate brownie called my name too. After a lot of research, I am still at a standstill. They are both great and I think you need to conduct your own studies to find the right one for you!

  • 10g protein

Lemon Swirl has always been a favorite, but I am a lemon flavor kinda girl. The new formulation gives it a little something extra from the original and I still think it is my favorite!

  • 10g protein

A typical day in my life looks like a giant To Do list. Can you relate? Sometimes I get to the end of my day and wonder where the hours went.

Oatmeal Raisin Cookie Recipe, Oatmeal Raisin Cookies, Healthy Oatmeal Raisin Cookie, Oatmeal Recipe

Raise your hand if you love oatmeal. Our family is an oatmeal eating one for sure. It could be in a bowl, bar, or a cookie with raisins, we aren’t picky! If you are like us then today is a great day to show off your affection for that versatile heart healthy grain. Come Celebrate National Oatmeal Day with Nature’s Path and a few tasty recipes! We choose Nature’s Path for many reasons. Their oatmeal tastes great, is always organic, and non-gmo. The products with flax seeds provide a good source of protein, fiber, whole grain, and ALA Omega-3. The new Qi’a Superfood Oatmeal is a mix of gluten-free rolled oats, chia, hemp, and buckwheat that boosts your nutrition, keeps you feeling full longer, and gives that much needed energy to power through your day. 

Classic Oatmeal Raisin Cookies with a Twist

For this recipe instead of using plain oatmeal, I used Nature’s Path Flax Plus® Hot Oatmeal. The flax gives the cookie just a little something to make it extra tasty!
