Easy Outfit Formula: The Knife-Pleated Skirt

The knife or sunray-pleated skirt is a fabulous item, until you have to think about the top to wear it with. Proportions are all over the place, with pleats that can look very pouffy and overly voluminous on the midsection and hips. This bossy skirt needs some discipline. 

The solution: Wear an UNTUCKED welted pullover over the skirt, and watch it submit to your body.

Outfit Formula: Longer knife-pleated skirt + fluid welted pullover + tailored footwear

The pullover must have a welt because therein lies the secret to the structure of the outfit. The welt tempers the volume of the pullover and of the skirt by tapering back to the contour of the body. The effect is much like a dropped waist dress of the ’20s. You have to be okay with surrendering your waistline completely here.

The welt will be positioned differently on the skirt depending on the length of the pullover. A shorter pullover positions the welt higher on the skirt, and vice versa. The neckline of the pullover can be turtleneck, boat neck, V-neck, scoop or crew neck.

The length of the skirt is knee-length or midi. A welted pullover tempers the volume of all knife-pleated skirts, but if that’s not enough, opt for a less voluminous pleated skirt (one that simply has less fabric).

Footwear can range from dressy tall tailored boots and sleek heeled pumps, to ballet flats, mules and sneakers. Here are some bloggers putting the concept through its stylish paces in both subtle and more extreme ways:

Late AfternoonOne Little MommaWardrobe DetectivesThe Fashion Guitar

  • Urban Glitz. You don’t need to wear heels. The dressy crossbody is a nice touch. 
  • Pretty Structure: A basic J.Crew Tippi pullover is paired with a pleated skirt. It’s fairly fitted, although sufficiently fluid. Great flats. 
  • Elegant Polish: The shorter pullover showcases more of the skirt. The classic pumps are gorgeous with the longer length of the skirt, thereby adding its leg lengthening effect. 
  • Playfully Fashion-Forward: The oversized tunic is an acquired taste creating more of a dress effect. The pumps with ties add outfit texture. 

The Halogen Metallic Pleated Skirt is one of the best pleated skirts of the season, and a lot more affordable than a designer version. It’s soft and the pleats lie quite flat against the body. Great length too. It looks fab with the silhouette of pullover I’ve shown in the collection. Tall, streamlined dressy boots look great with this skirt, as do pretty pumps with hosiery.

There was an ‘80s version of this look with shoulder pads that I wore with dressy flat white oxfords. I may have thrown in some white sneakers too. This time round, I want to wear the look with my tall dressy ink blue boots. Who else is feeling the vibe?

5 Easy Ways to Use Pantone’s Color of the Year (aka Our Favorite Color)

In the biggest news since last year’s Pantone color of the year announcement (it was a vibrant shade called “Greenery,” if you’re wondering), the self-proclaimed “Global Color Authority” and influencer of accent walls around the world has announced its pick for the 2018 color of the year.

And we’ve just gotta say: We’re in love. (Although we might be biased.)

The Pantone Color of the Year 2018 Is…

This year’s Pantone color of the year is Ultra Violet — or what we here at The Penny Hoarder HQ affectionately refer to as “Penny Hoarder Purple.”

And while this shade of purple can be, well, a lot to look at in large doses, it’s going to be everywhere pretty soon. And you, like me, are all of a sudden going to need more purple in your life.

(Listen, I don’t make the rules. It’s just that when Pantone announces that color of the year, it’s short order before the hue turns up everywhere and on everything. And while we all try to resist, ultimately our attempts are futile: Pantone’s color choice is law, and — mark my words — you’ll be crazy for it soon enough.)

But here’s the problem: When a new color is announced and hits the height of popularity six months out from the next color of the year announcement, it can be difficult (and pretty expensive) to change up your surroundings every time.

Still, we here at The Penny Hoarder believe in doing things that make you happy, and that includes making your living space pretty and pleasant to be in — and that sometimes even means following a trend. (Gasp!)

So while we’re not going to encourage you to buy a $ 2,000 Ultra Violet rug that you’ll end up selling for a fraction of the price when you’re ready to move on to the next color, we feel there’s no harm in adding a few splashes of this regal pigment around your home.

How to Incorporate This Trend Without Busting Your Budget

When the purple passion comes a’knocking, these ideas will help you incorporate it without breaking the bank — and in a way that allows you to change your mind should you find yourself surrounded by too much of a good thing.

1. Paint a Stripe (Not a Whole Wall)

Listen: An accent wall is a commitment. And while painting is one of the less expensive updates you can make (one that may even help you sell your home for more down the line), purple is a, ahem, highly saturated color to be painting an entire wall that you might want to cover up someday.

Instead, take a cue from the blogger over at Vintage Revivals and paint a simple, playful stripe on one of your walls. (And pay no attention to the Sherwin-Williams color of 2015. We’re talking about Pantone and purple today.) The best part? This update will cost you all of $ 15 in paint and supplies.

2. Throw Some Throws Around

Snag a couple of inexpensive purple throw blankets and drape them over the back of the couch or the end of your bed. If you’re more of a pillow person, this cozy velvet pillow sham would be the perfect way to update your existing decorative pillow arrangement with a pop of purple.

If you’re looking for a less obvious way to incorporate the hot new hue into your bedroom, try outfitting the bed with purple sheets.

3. Purple-fy Your Kitchen

Purple might be a bold choice when it comes to walls and linens, but it’s a natural (and pretty common) addition to any kitchen. If you’re down to your last glass because somebody can’t wash dishes without breaking them (Anybody else? Just me?) consider restocking with an inexpensive set of purple drinking glasses.

If you’d rather not invest in purple dishware (although this set is sort of really gorgeous) an inexpensive pack of purple dish towels might be the perfect way to introduce the color.

4. Brighten Up the Bathroom

If you’re looking for a simple update that packs a punch, a shower curtain ranks high on the list. I mean, it’s the same effect as an accent wall with a pretty minimal commitment, and whether you go for all the purple or take a more conservative approach, the bathroom is the perfect place to ease into the trend.

If you need even more purple (aren’t you satisfied yet?!) this bath mat would be a gorgeous addition.

5. Don’t Forget the Animals

Pet beds and dishes often wear out quickly, and your beloved, fur-covered friend might be due for an update anyway. A purple food and water dish will have your cat feeling like the king we know he is, while a colorful, cozy bed will show your dog she’s loved (and pretty trendy, if she cares about appearances).

So there you have it: Five easy—and relatively inexpensive—ways to add Ultra Violet (and other variations of our fave hue) to your home. You don’t have to go too crazy, but there’s no harm in treating yourself to a little decor update once in a while in the name of a trend.

Either way, we’re glad Pantone knows what’s up.

Not Sure How to Write a Resume? This Step-by-Step Guide Makes It Easy

Hiring practices may have changed a bit in the last few years, but one thing has stayed the same.

Resumes are a must during a job hunt.

Many new grads worry their resume isn’t any good because they don’t have much job experience to list. Some lack a resume altogether.

That’s too bad, because a quality resume is a very big deal for job seekers.

It’s your first introduction to prospective employers and can make or break your chances of getting a job.

Hiring a professional resume writer is an option, but it doesn’t come cheap. You could pay anywhere from $ 100 to $ 1,000.

Writing a resume isn’t too complex, but there are some important details to keep in mind. Use this blueprint to create a great resume that gets you noticed.

Choose Your Format

Choose Your Format of Your Resume and What Types of Resume Fits Your Job

Kristy Gaunt / The Penny Hoarder

Free online resume templates that let you fill in the blanks are an option, but you get what you pay for — which is to say, not much.

Employer brand consultant Jörgen Sundberg says resume templates cast job candidates in a poor light.

“Basically, it’s the lazy way of doing it,” Sundberg says. “What type of signal do you think these copy and paste skills send to the hiring manager? I would think that this applicant, if hired, would always look for quick and dirty ways of solving problems. I might be cynical here but can you afford to risk that?”

Artists, graphic designers and other visually creative professionals may want to use their resume to highlight their creative talents. Otherwise, keep things simple.

Hiring managers are interested in your skills and experience, not fancy fonts or formatting. Use a standard font like Arial or Tahoma and keep the layout simple.

Create Your Content

Sections of a Resume

Kristy Gaunt / The Penny Hoarder

Your resume should contain several important components.

Contact Information

Feature your name and contact information at the top of the page.

Use your full name, followed by your phone number and email address. If you have a LinkedIn profile or professional online portfolio, be sure to include that as well.

Objective

Write a short paragraph — two or three sentences at most — highlighting the type of work you’re looking for. Be sure to mention skills and talents that make you perfect for the job.

Work Experience

List your current job (if applicable) first, followed by all previous jobs in reverse chronological order.

Each job should include:

  • Name and address of the company where you worked
  • Your job title
  • Dates of employment
  • Your job responsibilities

If you have no work experience, don’t leave this section blank or eliminate it altogether.

Instead, use the section to highlight skills you’ve developed during college or while doing volunteer work.

“Don’t make the mistake of thinking that the skills you list on your resume need to be the direct result of a previous professional position. As long as you can successfully demonstrate those abilities, go ahead and list them! It really doesn’t matter where you learned them,” recommends The Everygirl’s Kat Boogaard.

Education

In this section, include any community colleges, universities, trade schools or technical colleges you’ve attended. Begin with your most recent school and work backwards.

For each school, be sure to provide:

  • The name, city and state of the school
  • The dates you attended
  • Any degrees or certifications you received

Note: If your degree is in progress, add the expected date of completion to let prospective employers know you’re still working on it.

Honors and Community Experience

This section captures extracurricular activities that don’t fit into the previous sections. For example:

  • Academic or work-related awards
  • Membership in clubs or organizations like Girl or Boy Scouts, 4-H or debate club
  • Volunteer community service
  • Greek Life leadership

Additional Skills

Here’s where to highlight skills and talents that set you apart from other job seekers, including:

  • Fluency in more than one language
  • Typing speed
  • Proficiency in specific computer software programs
  • Experience with public speaking

A Word About Keywords

Many companies ask job candidates to apply online and upload resumes to their website. Resumes are often electronically scanned for specific keywords to quickly weed out unqualified applicants.

“Your resume keywords should include specific job requirements, including your skills, competencies, relevant credentials, and previous positions and employers,” says career expert Alison Doyle. “Essentially, keywords should be words that, at a glance, will show the hiring manager that you are a good fit for the job.”

As you sprinkle keywords throughout your resume, be sure they don’t make the content sound stilted or awkward. Look for ways to work them in naturally; don’t force it.

Final Touches

Once you’ve created your resume, it’s not ready to hand to a hiring manager until you do these three things.

1. Proofread Your Work

It’s not enough to simply run your resume through a spellchecker because they don’t always catch every mistake.

Print a copy of your resume, then read through it slowly several times to make sure it’s error-free.

2. Show It to a Friend

Share your resume with someone you trust to get some honest feedback on how it looks. Have them read it to you out loud to take in the content in a new way.

3. Convert It to a PDF

Save Your Resume into a PDF Before Sending It Off in Job Applications

Kristy Gaunt / The Penny Hoarder

Write your resume in whatever software application works best for you, but convert it to a PDF file before you send it to a hiring manager. If your word processing software doesn’t include a conversion feature, there are plenty of free online services to choose from.

PDF file formats are almost universally preferred during the hiring process and they protect your resume’s content from being accidentally altered once it leaves your hands.

Once your cover letter is ready for prime time, write up a cover letter (they’re more important than you think) and start sending it to job prospects.

Happy job hunting!

An Easy Guide for Anyone Who’s Still Wondering How the Heck Bitcoin Works

Bitcoin: a confusing, controversial currency whose name has made the rounds across the internet in the past few years. Today, it’s as popular as ever and is booming in price, although prices are highly volatile. Just this week, bitcoin reached a peak value of $ 11,377.33 on Nov. 29, then lost over a fifth of its value the next day.

Many, though, are still unclear about what its purpose is. What can digital currency buy, what gives it such high value, and how does its price shoot up so high all of the time?

What Is Bitcoin, and What’s All the Buzz About?

Bitcoin is a digital currency created in 2009 by an anonymous person or group under the alias Satoshi Nakamoto. The creator(s) capped its circulation at 21 million bitcoins when they introduced the currency. At the time of this writing, approximately 16.7 million bitcoins were in circulation, according to bitcoinblockhalf.com.

Bitcoin is completely digital, so there’s no such thing as a physical bitcoin you can hand to your BFF after they spot you during your lunch date.

Wait. So it’s internet money?

That’s one way to think of it. You can send bitcoin electronically and transfer it to anyone around the world. Its network doesn’t exist on the internet you and I use in day-to-day life, but yes, it is bought, sold and transferred via a computer network.  

OK, but how?

Here’s where it gets confusing. Bitcoin is sent through a network, named… bitcoin. How original, right? Your credit card transactions might be sent through a payment network such as American Express or Mastercard. In bitcoin‘s case, payments are sent through the bitcoin network.

This network is decentralized, which means no single person or company runs it — computers do, and volunteers maintain it.

This differs from traditional currencies, which are regulated by a central bank, such as the U.S. Federal Reserve. These banks have the ability to print or withdraw money based on market fluctuations to keep it steady.

Then where does it come from?

New bitcoins are created through a process called mining, and anyone with a strong enough computer can become a miner. During this process, bitcoin miners are the resources that help verify bitcoin transactions between users all around the world.

The network cuts the amount of bitcoins generated in half about every four years. At this rate, all 21 million bitcoins will have been mined by around 2140.

If bitcoin isn’t regulated, then who is keeping track of its exchanges?

Each bitcoin transaction is associated with data; the bitcoin network then combines the data of multiple transactions to create a puzzle.

Bitcoin transfers are stored on the bitcoin network in a giant public database known as a blockchain. Think of the blockchain as a giant book of public records. To create the chain, someone has to put the blocks together — which is where miners come in.

Miners use sophisticated computer hardware and software to solve these puzzles, The Washington Post explains. By doing so, miners verify the data and make sure specific funds aren’t spent twice.

After verifying a block of transactions, the miner currently receives a reward of 12.5 bitcoins, which was worth more than $ 132,000 as of Dec. 1.

The reward for mining a block is cut in half for every 210,000 blocks mined, or about once every four years. It dropped from 25 bitcoins to the current 12.5 bitcoins in 2016; it’s expected to be cut in half again to 6.25 bitcoins in 2020.

Since the bitcoin network isn’t regulated, isn’t it vulnerable to hackers?

Since there are people who help maintain the network — the miners, remember? —  this means they could just alter it to give them more bitcoin… right? Actually, It’s highly unlikely; the computers would recognize the change and would in all likelihood ignore it. The network is open source with a ton of developers working to improve its code and monitor changes. To date, bitcoin has never been hacked. Experts agree that’s unlikely in the short term, although that doesn’t mean it can never happen.

Makes sense. But what gives bitcoin its value?

People bid on bitcoin exchanges every day. Its price fluctuates with the number of people who bid on it. The higher the demand for bitcoin, the higher its price and perceived value. But skeptics say the fact that its value is dependent upon how many people want to buy it, and nothing tangible backing it up, is where the digital currency fails. More on that later!

How do you buy bitcoin?

You can easily buy bitcoin through platforms such as Coinbase. These platforms also act as digital wallets where you can store your bitcoin.

Coinbase allows you to purchase and exchange bitcoin with your bank account or credit card. It also converts bitcoin into your local currency and claims to keep it secure.  

Why People Care So Much About Bitcoin

You can use bitcoin to purchase things anonymously, reducing the risk hackers will get access to your sensitive information. Credit or debit cards, by comparison, are usually linked to bank accounts, Social Security numbers and more.

This anonymity also makes it criminals’ payment method of choice for everything from ransom to purchasing drugs on the darknet. That said, these criminal activities make up just a small percentage of all bitcoin transactions, The New York Times reports.

Bitcoin is commonly used to save money without it losing value in countries with high inflation, like Argentina and Venezuela. It’s also popular for international money transfers, which are nearly instant.

Bitcoin exchanges are also nearly instant and usually carry fees of around 0.25%, whereas money transfers via banks take time to process and come with higher service fees.  

Is There a Bitcoin ‘Bubble’?

The price of bitcoin is soaring. But does that mean we should all ditch our dollar bills and invest now?

Some people, such as famed investor Warren Buffett, argue against it saying there’s a “bitcoin bubble” that will eventually burst.

This “bubble” refers to people buying more and more bitcoin, betting its price will continue to increase. However, skeptics like Buffet say the burst will come when daily bidding and exchanges slow, which will drop its price significantly.

Buffett says Bitcoin isn’t a “value-producing asset,” meaning there isn’t anything tangible backing it. People only buy it because its price keeps increasing, and they want a piece of the pie when they cash out. It isn’t creating earnings or generating steady returns. The prices constantly fluctuate, meaning someone could lose their entire investment at any moment.

A small bitcoin bubble burst in 2013, when bitcoin prices dropped from $ 1,150 to under $ 500,

The Independent reports.

Bitcoin enthusiasts, however, argue that major fluctuations are normal for any developing system. Michael Rauchs, a cryptocurrency and blockchain expert at the Judge Business School at the University of Cambridge, told The Independent that he “would put it in the same category of revolutionary new technologies like the internet.”

“World-changing systems tend to be accompanied by bubbles in their early stages,” he said. “What’s happening now is completely normal.”

As with any investment, there is a risk –– so deciding whether to invest or not is a personal choice.

It’s cookie time! Try these EASY salted caramel bars

by

Lindsay Weiss

posted in Life

Yay, it’s DECEMBER! Which means it’s totally fine for me to start talking about my favorite subject…

COOKIES!

I wanted to give this recipe to you early, because it’s the one you may use the most during this busy, busy month. It’s a shortcut recipe — which means it takes a little help from the store — but it’s the one I keep turning to for last minute events or “Oops! I forgot” moments.

These are a tender sugar cookie bar, jazzed up with a filling of sea salt caramel chips and prepared caramel topping. They are sweet and salty, soft and crunchy — really just an explosion of flavors in a very small bite. I cut these small because they are rich and good. I used a packaged sugar cookie mix as the base for the bar and I don’t regret it one bit because it comes together in just a few minutes.

I found the Hershey’s Sea Salt Caramel Chips in my regular grocery store, and they’re really what started my wheels turning. (No, this is not a promo for them; I just bought them and really liked the flavor.) If you can’t find them in your regular store, you can get them on Amazon. They are pretty important to the recipe, so don’t skip ’em.

These come together incredibly quickly, but look bakery quality (and taste even better). They’re a must-have for this busy season, so pin ’em now and you’ll thank me later!

p.s. If you’re looking for 12 Days of Cookies, it will be over here on my blog, Sugar Mama, starting Friday, Dec. 1!

Easy Salted Caramel Cookie Bars

1 1/2 lbs. packaged sugar cookie mix, divided (typically 1 & 1/2 pouches of sugar cookie mix — don’t worry you’ll make these more than once and use up that extra 1/2!)
13 tbsp. unsalted butter, softened and divided
1 egg
10 oz. bag Hershey’s Sea Salt Caramel Chips
3/4 cup prepared caramel ice cream topping (the best quality you can find)
1 ½ tsp. Fleur de Sel (or coarse sea salt)

Using a 9X13 pan, line with aluminum foil. Spray with baking spray and set aside. Preheat oven to 325 degrees.

In a large bowl, combine one 1 lb. bag of sugar cookie mix, 8 tbsp. of butter and one egg. Use an electric mixer to combine until dough is formed. Press into the bottom of the 9×13 and bake for 10 minutes. Dough should be slightly golden. Remove from oven and immediately sprinkle with sea salt caramel chips. Drizzle caramel topping on top. Let sit five minutes to “melt”. Use a spoon to spread evenly.

In a separate bowl, combine HALF of a 1 lb. bag of sugar cookie mix and 5 tbsp butter. Use a fork and blend together until coarse crumbs appear. Sprinkle on top of caramel topping and bake near the top of the oven for 12-15 minutes.

If you want top a little more golden, broil for 30 seconds watching very carefully. Allow to cool and cut into squares.

Makes 36 bars.

Kids in the kitchen: Easy cinnamon roll turkeys for Thanksgiving morning

by

Lindsay Weiss

posted in Life

These will make your Thanksgiving morning so fun! The kids can do most of the work (you handle the bacon, they can decorate the rolls) and the end result is festive AND delicious!

If you have a homemade cinnamon roll recipe you love, go for it. I was looking for quick and easy so took some help from the store. There are two important things about this recipe:

1. Before baking, you have to unroll the cinnamon rolls a tiny bit and tuck the end up into the roll. See pic below. This helps create a “neck” for the turkey.

2. You need to bake these in a round (9-10″) cake pan. If you bake on a cookie sheet, they spread and don’t rise as high, so your turkey looks a little flat.

That’s it! Then let the kids at it. The bacon “feathers” don’t need to be perfect, so let the little hands put them wherever they want!

Everyone will gobble, gobble these up…

Easy Turkey Cinnamon Rolls
Adapted from Pillsbury. I just simplified everything so little hands could help with these.

1 can (17.5 oz) Pillsbury Grands refrigerated cinnamon rolls with icing
10 slices bacon
5 candy corns
candy eyes

Cook or bake bacon until crisp; drain on paper towel-lined plate.

Heat oven to 350°F. Spray round baking pan with cooking spray.

Set icing aside. Separate dough into 5 rolls. Unroll each roll about 1 inch; tuck dough into roll to create neck of turkey. (See pic below for “tucking”, make sure to pull the end all the way down. Remember do NOT bake these on a cookie sheet. I learned the hard way!)

Follow package baking instructions (or until light golden brown). Remove from cookie sheet to cooling rack; cool 5 minutes. Drizzle tops of rolls with icing.

Cut bacon slices in half. Tuck 4 halves of bacon into back of each cinnamon roll so they stick up and look like tail feathers.

Decorate turkeys with candy eyeballs and candy corn. Enjoy!

Dr. Brown’s makes it easy to move from a bottle to a sippy cup

by

Kelly Wilbanks

posted in Products

My third baby is following quickly on the heels of her older sisters: She’s crawling earlier, eating sooner, and wants to be part of any activity going on. That means it’s getting harder to nurse her if her siblings are anywhere nearby.

She’s 9 months old and we’ve started introducing solids — well, more accurately, she began slamming her hand on the table and screaming until I would feed her bits from my plate. Though she’s transitioning to eating solids, I know she’ll still benefit from whatever breast milk I can give her.

Not only is my milk full of the nutrition she needs, it also has antibodies to fight against the germs hitching a ride on my kindergartner each day. My breast milk will be what gets her through the cold and flu season.

But she’s so busy and distracted by her siblings that it’s getting harder to keep her attention long enough to give her a good feeding during the day. That’s where I’ve found Dr. Brown’s 2-in-1 Transition Bottle Kit and Sippy Spouts helpful. She wants to figure out how to make it work so it holds her attention. I’ve begun giving her bottles with my breast milk and letting her practice the sippy cup version with water.

During this season of transition it’s felt like an olive branch between us. I can pump and have that process only take a few minutes rather than trying to get through a frustrating nursing session. She still gets the nutrients and antibodies she needs and she can begin moving towards that independence she (and I) sort of crave at this point.

She still loves her nighttime feedings and I still enjoy that bond and holding her close without her sisters crashing the party. My baby is just growing up. She needs me, but she needs to develop hand/eye coordination and become the busy toddler she’s turning into.

baby-using-sippy-cup-dr.browns-transitioning

Each Dr. Brown’s 2-in-1 Transition Bottle Kit includes all of the items you see in the photo to the left below: bottle, cleaning brush, nipple ring, internal vent system, bottle nipple, sippy cup nipple, and a lid. I love that it’s all included so we’re ready to give her what she needs when she needs it.

Both the bottle and the sippy are easy for my daughter to grasp, even though she is just beginning to learn. I can tell she’s just as proud of using her new sippy cup as she is of crawling across the living room. Sometimes she’s dragging it with her or knocking it over so I’m glad it’s spill-proof too.

transition-bottle-collage

Here’s an inside tip: you can use the lid and sippy cup spout with the 4-ounce version of the bottle body as well. I had one on hand and tried it out. Since my daughter is just becoming dextrous, we found the smaller bottle is even easier for her to handle.

My teething baby loved the soft spout on both the nipple and the sippy spout; I loved that it’s 100 percent silicone and BPA-free. Another thing I love: it’s easy to clean. I can’t hand-wash everything (actually sometimes I can barely run loads of dishes) so the fact that I can wash these on the top rack of my dishwasher is so helpful.

I personally like anything that can serve two purposes and both versions are in use right now. Heck, when we can’t find my 2-year-old daughter’s sippy cup we borrow her little sister’s, so the cup spans multiple ages and multiple children. I’m glad I’ll have these cups on hand as she grows and transitions from bottle to cup, and I’m sure she’ll continue to love using them too.

What age did your baby transition to a sippy cup?

Apple just made it easy for iPhone X buyers to check in-store availability online

iPhone X Release

In something of a throwback to early iPhone launches, many Apple retail stores across the world are still seeing absolutely massive lines as eager customers are queuing up in the hopes that they can get their hands on Apple’s next-gen iPhone X. As a quick example, I strolled by two Apple stores in Chicago today and both still had throngs of people lined up down the block well into the afternoon.

Now if you’re not already in line but are perhaps interested in making a trek out to a nearby Apple store, you might want to consult Apple’s iPhone X webpage first. Originally spotted by MacRumors, Apple earlier today added a “check availability” option which lets interested buyers see if their desired model is currently available for purchase. With iPhone X supply said to be extremely small this year, the aforementioned tool could very well save you from making a trip for nothing.

Easy Ways to Lend Luxury to Your Bathroom

Luxury is trending in the realm of bathroom decor – and we can understand why! The standard stress and chaos of every day life calls for a balancing element; for some, this is a spa-like bathroom to come home to at the end of a long day, where they can effectively wind down and self-indulge. In the spirit of tranquility, keep reading for five products and ideas that will add a feeling of luxury to your bathroom. 

A Genius Shower System

At the forefront of bathroom luxury is Riobel, with their Genius™ Shower system. Their smart shower system comes with a user-friendly keypad interface, which allows users to adjust water temperature with the click of a button, and its high-flow functionality and auto-recharge battery ensures consistent water pressure, even in the effect of a power blackout!

A De-primping Station

While your morning primping routine may be a rushed one, addled with interruptions and chaos via everyone else’s respective routines, your evening de-primping routine doesn’t have to necessarily be so. Having somewhere to sit and take off your makeup at the end of a long day can be a godsend and is inherently indicative of a luxury bathroom. Think: a tufted ottoman, an ornate armchair, or even a chaise lounger, if you space allows for it.

A Towel Warmer

Stemming from European bathroom design, towel warmers are the feature you won’t know you needed until you get one. Particularly beloved by users during colder winter months and early mornings, the benefits of towel warmers are twofold: to keep you warm right out of the shower and to keep your towels mold and mildew-free

The Power of Plants

Is there anything more luxe than a tall, exotic potted plant in the corner of your contemporary bathroom? Whether your feeling towards plants is more of a passion or preference, there’s no doubt the personality, health benefits, and subtle luxury plants can bring to the bathroom setting. Bamboo, orchids, and aloe vera are good starter plants which will do well in a humid bathroom setting.

The Power of Plant-esq 

Not into plants? No problem. In the past year alone, the popularity of plant-reminiscent things has skyrocketed; greenery-inspired wallpaper, shower curtain, and wall-art are all great options. After all, you can’t go wrong with the calming and cleansing effects of the color green.

This easy pumpkin pull-apart bread recipe will make you a hero

by

Lindsay Weiss

posted in Life

I am pretty much a hero in my house today since I actually made these for breakfast. This is a major feat in my house because my oldest begins school at 7:40, meaning we have to leave the house at 7:15. So breakfast of any kind that requires actual preparation or, you know, cooking, doesn’t ever happen because I AM NOT A MORNING PERSON.

(That is the understatement of the century.)

But I hobbled out of bed and threw this together in my sleep, basically. It made the house smell so amazing that the kids actually got themselves out of bed and peered down the stairs thinking it was Christmas morning because someone had actually cooked them breakfast.

Sure, this recipe is cheating because it starts with canned biscuits. But if said canned biscuits enable you to sleep 30 minutes later on any given morning you have to seize that moment and sleep like it’s your job for those 30 minutes. Rip open the biscuits and stir the pumpkin goodness together. Layer ’em all up and throw ’em in the oven while you stir up the glaze.

I promise the end product tastes nothing like canned biscuits. This one is a keeper.

Easy Pumpkin Pull-Apart Bread

3/4 cup pumpkin puree
1/2 cup granulated sugar, divided
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
1 large egg
1 can (8 count) Pillsbury Grands Biscuits (homestyle or buttermilk, not flaky)
1 teaspoon cinnamon

4 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 to 4 tablespoons milk – more for a thinner glaze

1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray an 8×4 or 9×5 loaf pan with nonstick cooking spray.

2. Stir together the pumpkin puree, 1/4 cup granulated sugar, vanilla, pumpkin pie spice, and egg. Set aside.

3. Separate the dough into 8 biscuits. Separate each biscuit into 2 layers, making total of 16 biscuit rounds. Stir together remaining 1/4 cup granulated sugar and 1 teaspoon cinnamon in a small bowl. Coat each slice of raw biscuit dough with the cinnamon-sugar mixture.

4. Add about 1 T. of pumpkin mixture on top of first biscuit layer. Repeat, stacking biscuits in 4 piles of 4 biscuits each.

5. Place stacks on their sides in a row in loaf pan, making sure sides without filling are on both ends touching pan. Place carefully into the pan.

6. Bake for about 20-26 minutes, or until the top is golden and the center is cooked through. I like to cover the top loosely with foil for the first 10-15 minutes so the top doesn’t get too done while the center is still gooey. Remove from oven and cool before glazing.

7. To make the glaze: Beat cream cheese until very creamy. Beat in powdered sugar. Stir in vanilla. Add 3 tablespoons milk. Combine all the ingredients. Add more milk to get desired consistency. Drizzle over loaf, pull apart, and serve.

Kids in the kitchen: Easy monster eyeballs for Halloween

by

Lindsay Weiss

posted in Life

My kids had no school on Friday, so we needed a project. These little Halloween cookies seemed like the perfect thing and we only needed a few ingredients to make them happen. My 4-year-old could do this project from start to finish, but my older kids loved it too. I just spread out a big plastic tablecloth on our kitchen table and let them have at it. I also melted the candy wafers for them (because their attention span for the microwave is questionable).

I mistakenly took the long route and baked mini cookies from some sugar cookie dough for the kids to use. But after I did that, I realized mini vanilla wafers would have been ready-made and much easier!

We actually included these in our “Boo” baskets we gave to friends. It was a super cute homemade addition that the kids felt really proud of.

Easy Monster Eyeballs

Mini vanilla wafers (Or mini sugar cookies)
Green candy melts (I found Wilton melts at Walmart)
Eyeball candies (Also from Wilton)

Melt candy according to package directions. Stir in canola oil to thin if necessary. Dip cookies entirely in melted candy and shake off excess. Top each with eyeball candy. Let set for 20 min or so to harden.

Here’s how easy it is for anyone to use Facebook like Russian actors did

TwitterFacebook

It only takes about five minutes to buy a Facebook ad with a link to a fake anti-Muslim story and aim it at residents of a Michigan electoral battleground county whom the social network’s algorithms perceive to be “very conservative.”

This capability is at the heart of an ongoing controversy around revelations that a Russian troll farm gamed Facebook’s ad targeting apparatus with exactly these sorts of purchases. Facebook has admitted that it sold 3,000 ads to entities aligned with the Russian government’s campaign to influence the presidential election. The Kremlin-linked actors reportedly used Facebook’s tools to target ads around electoral geography, feelings toward Muslims, and racial divisions, among other political pressure points.  Read more…

Super easy one-pot chicken chili verde

by

Lindsay Weiss

posted in Life

Need a dump-and-stir dinner that tastes restaurant quality? This easy white bean chicken chili is perfect for busy weeknights. It takes some help from a can of verde (green) salsa which provides the burst of flavor and color.

All the work is done in one stock pot. You stir up the olive oil, onions, and spices and simply dump the rest of the ingredients in. Let it simmer as long as you need — it can go for hours if needed on low, low heat. Stir in the cooked chicken right before serving and you’ve got dinner.

If you don’t have any cooked chicken breast handy, a rotisserie chicken works great.

Easy One-Pot Chicken Chili Verde
If you’re going to let this simmer for a long while (on very low heat), wait and add the cooked chicken just before serving. This will keep it from overcooking. This makes your house smell SO GOOD!

2 tablespoons olive oil
1 cup diced yellow onion
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
16 ounces salsa verde
15-ounces cannellini beans or Great Northern beans, not drained
1 pound (about 4 cups) shredded cooked chicken
32 ounces chicken broth or stock
1 tablespoon chopped cilantro (or to taste)

Heat oil in a stock pot over medium heat. Add diced onion and cook, stirring occasionally for 4-5 minutes. Add cumin, salt and pepper, continue to stir and cook for another 1 minute.
Stir in salsa verde and bring to a simmer, stirring occasionally.

Add remaining ingredients, bring to a simmer. Salt and pepper to taste, lower heat and cook covered for about 20 minutes.

Garnish with fresh cilantro.

Serves 6.

Quick & easy: Cilantro-lime black beans & rice

by

Lindsay Weiss

posted in Life

Last week I made a batch of this rice and grilled some steak and chicken and it was the meal we grazed off all week long. It’s so easy to re-heat this rice and throw a little meat on top of it for a complete meal. The rice is full of flavor (thanks to the cilantro and lime) and the black beans are a nice touch of protein to balance out the carbs.

This is also a perfect take-it-to-work lunch if you have a microwave handy (or a thermos to keep it warm). It cooks super fast and you just need to stir in the beans, lime juice and cilantro.

The first time you make this, add the lime juice gradually to taste. I prefer the full 1/4 cup, but my hubby and kids are good with like 2 tbsp.

Quick & Easy Cilantro-Lime Black Beans and Rice

2 tablespoons of butter
2 cups uncooked basmati rice
1-1/2 cups water (or follow the directions on your package, not all types of basmati are made equal. I always use 1/2 cup LESS than the package suggests because I hate soggy rice)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 can (14 oz.) black beans, rinsed and drained
1/4 cup fresh lime juice (start with less and add to taste)
2 tablespoons chopped cilantro

In 4 quart heavy saucepan heat butter over low heat until melted. Add rice and stir for one minute. Add water and salt and bring to a full boil then cover and simmer over low heat until rice is tender and water is absorbed, about 12 minutes. Do not overcook it. Remove from heat and stir in black beans, lime juice and cilantro.

Serves 8.

Why body positivity isn’t always easy for me

Why body positivity isn’t always easy for me


Why body positivity isn’t always easy for me

I can’t remember a time when I wasn’t told that I was fat. I have memories of being a little girl in dance class, wearing flashy costumes as people poked my belly and told me I was chubby. I didn’t think much of those comments when I was a young girl — there were more pressing issues like collecting Barbies and playing outside with my friends. But as I got older, hearing people call me fat became more and more frustrating.

I began feeling uncomfortable in those dance costumes. My friends started to look like the Barbies we played with while I remained a Cabbage Patch Kid. My grandfather, though I loved him dearly, would comment on my weight, as would my parents whenever I tried on clothes. By the end of middle school — after a boy I liked told me he’d rather date a trash can than someone who looked like me — I learned to hate that irritating adjective reserved for chubby girls: “cute.” It felt more like an insult than a compliment.

As time continued passing, I grew more and more self-conscious. I would look in the mirror, and see a girl who just wasn’t enough. I’d see this lump and that lump; I’d work out until I fell over, and I still wasn’t as skinny as my friends were. Never mind the fact that our bodies are all shaped completely differently and we all carry, gain, and lose weight differently — that wasn’t something I thought about. Instead, I obsessed over their ability to rock a bikini while I was too scared to even wear a pair of shorts.

And that’s why I want to say — as much as people preach about the movement on social media and in online feminist spaces — body positivity isn’t always as easy as it’s made out to be.

When you grow up hearing your family and friends question your weight, hearing your ballet teacher say you’re too big to go en pointe, hearing your elementary school nurse suggest that “maybe you shouldn’t eat so many sandwiches” — when society tells you that being chubby simply isn’t good enough — becoming body positive isn’t as automatic as “just loving yourself and who you are!”

Once breaking away from our ridiculous beauty standards became more mainstream thanks to the body positivity movement, I was thrilled — but skeptical. I feared that this mindset would be gone as quickly as it had come thundering in. But the more articles I read, the more I began feeling that these body positive messages were only reaching certain women.

Specifically, I felt like body positivity was for women who were already comfortable in their skin, who no longer cared what others said about their weight.

But what about women like me who haven’t yet reached that level of confidence? What about women like me who can’t even imagine reaching that higher plane of self-love?

Don’t get me wrong, I’ve always thought of myself as a great, interesting person — it’s a skill that you hone after being overlooked by suitors and labeled the funny friend for years. But, oftentimes, feeling anything other than okay with myself just isn’t on my radar. Sometimes, I’m still the woman who considers skipping a friend’s wedding because of how terrible I think I’ll look in a dress.

I feel that acknowledgement of this self-esteem battle is sometimes missing from the body posi newsletters that flood my inbox. There are so many wonderful women who are breaking down stereotypes, but they don’t always say what I need to hear — things like this:

“It’s okay if you don’t feel good about your body right now. It’s okay if it takes some time. It’s not always easy to get to this place, but if you work at it and try to remember that *how you look* is dependent on *how you feel about yourself*, it can totally happen.”

So, in the meantime, I’ll say it instead.

I know that there are many of us who struggle with body positivity. We think, maybe if we just lose a few pounds, our crushes will finally notice us. We do tedious “math” to figure out how to lose x-amount of pounds before a certain event. We skip out on taking pictures. We spend hours in the mirror finding our perfect angles to hide our bellies or to make our arms look thinner. We avoid activities that require specific outfits and say, “Oh, no. I can’t try that on. I’ll look too fat in it.”

And it sucks. Of course it sucks. We want to be on the body positivity train. We want to send nudes without scrutinizing them. We want to get tagged in group photos without wondering, “Is it just me or is my double chin super extra in that?” We want to walk around in shorts and dresses and bathing suits and say, “This is me.”

But it might take you just a little longer to get there. I haven’t reached that point yet, either.

Some days, I feel amazing. I think, “Okay, this is my body. It’s not perfect. It doesn’t look like any of the bodies on The CW, but it’s still mine. I can’t let it stop me from living my life. LET’S DO THIS.” Some days, I don’t want to be seen because I’m feeling extra chubby. I don’t even want to take my clothes off in front of my boyfriend.

It’s a process. It’s not always as easy as the Internet makes it seem — and that’s okay.

But we’ll get there, eventually. We’ll forget all of the times when someone made us believe that our worth hinged on our weight. We will embrace that all bodies are different, and all bodies are great because they exist and are full of life. We aren’t worse than anybody else because of the number on the scale. We will thrive, no matter what size our jeans are. One day, we will realize this.

3 Incredibly Easy Ways to Teach Your Kids About Money

teach

Unfortunately, as adults, we learn more about money after the mistake is made. We often find ourselves saying, “Why didn’t I learn this in school?” or “I wish someone would have taught me this at a younger age.” We sometimes find ourselves blaming the school system, but in order for the black community to build wealth, WE must depend on ourselves.   Financial education starts at home, and as a community, we must uplift and educate our children. Changing the financial legacy of our families starts with YOU.

If you are not the wealthiest person walking, it is perfectly fine. It is OK if you have debt; it is even OK if you are not able to save a lot of money. You do not need to be a Certified Financial Planner to educate our youth. Yes, there is always room for improvement, and that, I know, you will soon experience. However, here are three easy ways to teach your children about money.

 

1. Take Your Child to the Bank Once a Month

 

If you have a bank account, your child should too. If you have deposited money into your account (whether it’s direct deposit or manually), your child should too. Some parents open bank accounts for their children but fail to involve them in the process. Allow your child to learn by doing.

Once a month, bring your youngster to the bank to make a deposit or a withdrawal. Something small like $ 10, may not seem like a lot to you, but it could mean the world to a child. Give them a tour of the bank. Let them know what goes on in the bank, and how they play a part in it all. Allow your child to visit the teller and make his or her own deposit. It makes their experience with money real, and they will have a better understanding of money as they get older.

 

2. Allow Your Child to Help You Pay Bills

 

When we were younger, we knew Mommy and Daddy paid bills but did we really know ALL the bills they had to pay? We knew Mommy and Daddy went to work, but we didn’t know all their monetary responsibilities. When you’re younger, you really have no idea how many bills you are responsible for as an adult.

Allow your child to get a better understanding of their potential tasks as an adult. Show them how you plan your money, and share the dates your bills are due. Choose a bill that you always pay on time and show them the process of making a payment. You will be surprised at how well kids work technology in this day and age. It could save you some time, and it will better prepare them for what’s to come.

 

3. Buy Stock for Your Children During the Holidays and For Their Birthdays

 

During a time when our community is being the consumer, teach your child how to be the owner. Let them know that it is acceptable to spend money, but building wealth requires them to keep and invest their money. Buying stock in a company doesn’t have to cost you millions of dollars. There are brokerage accounts that do not require a minimum balance, and there are many companies whose shares cost less than $ 100.

If your child turns six, on their birthday, why not buy them six shares of their favorite toy company? What about their favorite social media, favorite clothing store, favorite game company, or their favorite computer device? As we spend our money with these companies, we are continuing to help them stay rich. By investing in stock, we are helping our offspring to become rich. Empowering our children is teaching them more than just math and reading skills. It is about teaching them the skill sets that can financially strengthen the black community.

By implementing these small steps, you are instilling a value system.  How we value money is how our children will value money. What we teach our children is what they will teach their children. If our children see us invest, they will invest. Financial habits are passed down just like skin tone, eye color, and body features. The legacy that we leave our children, whether it is money, investments, real estate, etc., is what they will continue to leave for their families. Although our monetary situations may not be the best, that doesn’t mean our children don’t deserve the financial best. We are creating a cycle of change, and remember the change starts with YOU!

Melinda Gates: Breastfeeding isn’t easy, and we make it harder

by

Carolyn Robertson

posted in Parenting

It’s World Breastfeeding Week, so perhaps you’ve been seen a lot of articles toting the incredible and miraculous benefits of breastfeeding. That’s as it should be; every new mom should feel informed, supported, and empowered when it comes to feeding her child.

Melinda Gates is a strong proponent of breastfeeding. Not only did she nurse her own three kids, but the philanthropic organization that bears her name — the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation — has identified “immediate and exclusive breastfeeding” as part of its strategy to improve global nutrition.

She admits, though, that the ongoing conversation surrounding breastfeeding often fails to mention the fact that this natural, loving, wondrous act can be really hard.

“I think a lot of us go into motherhood with these idealized images of breastfeeding in our minds. But what those don’t show you is that keeping a tiny baby alive comes with a tremendous amount of pressure,” Melinda writes in a piece penned for Refinery29. “A mom has to worry about whether her baby has properly latched, whether her baby is gaining weight, whether she’s producing enough of that milk that everyone keeps lecturing her is so essential to her baby’s survival and success.”

breastfeeding

She also shines a spotlight on the fact that despite all of the lip service paid to how absolutely important breastfeeding is, policies are not in place to support it.

Pointing specifically to maternity leave in the U.S., which lags behind that of other developed nations, Melinda writes, “If [a mom] works outside the home, there’s a good chance that even though she’s been advised that she should breastfeed for at least six months, she’s not getting anywhere near that much time off. A growing body of research shows that one of the many benefits of paid family and medical leave is that it helps women who want to breastfeed do so longer. But until those policies become the norm, working moms who want to continue breastfeeding will have to lug a cumbersome pump to and from work every day, hoping their coworkers will be understanding and respectful when they have to carve out time from their workdays to find a private place to pump.”

I’m sure there are a lot of moms out there who know firsthand the challenges that Melinda is talking about.

I think this is exactly the type of discussion that needs to be had. It’s all well and good to tell women all the reasons we should breastfeed our babies, but we also need to acknowledge the realities that often make it very difficult.

As I’ve confessed here in the past, I had a very tumultuous relationship with breastfeeding. Tired and overwhelmed and sinking down the bottomless pit of postpartum depression, I eventually decided that while breast may be best as a general rule, that just wasn’t the case for me and for my family.

Perhaps that’s why my favorite part of Melinda’s essay comes toward the end, where she comes to a very kind and common sense conclusion:

“The bottom line is this: Motherhood is a tough balancing act, and every mom deserves the chance to do what’s right for her and her family. If that means breastfeeding, great. If that means formula feeding, that’s totally fine, too. I just want to make sure that every mom truly does have both options.”

I couldn’t agree more.

Mother’s Day Gift Guide: 5 Thoughtful (but Easy) Last-Minute Ideas

mother's day

Just in case you haven’t checked your calendar, let us remind you that Mother’s Day is May 14—which is this Sunday.

But, don’t worry if the annual holiday slipped your mind, and you forgot to pick up a gift for your mom. We got you covered! Here are a few last-minute gift ideas that will surely make her smile.

 

1. For the Health-Conscious Mom

 

Why not order or create a delicious fruit basket for your mother? Not only is this a tasty and refreshing treat, it also makes a great gift for moms who like eating healthy or happen to be watching their calorie intake.

Plus, creating a basket from scratch will add a personal touch to your gift. To make a basket, buy an array of fruit from your local farmer’s market or supermarket. You will also need to pick up a decorative box or basket, along with stuffing and ribbon. You should be able to purchase these items from an arts-n-crafts store like Michaels.

 

2. For the Mompreneur

 

If you mom has her own business or side hustle, then consider purchasing her a ticket to the 2017 Black Enterprise Entrepreneurs Summit!

From May 17–20, this amazing four-day conference will offer exclusive access to some of the most powerful leaders in business. It’s guaranteed to empower attendees with the knowledge, resources, and tools necessary to expand their business. This will also give your mom an opportunity to network with small business owners and hear from a roster of dynamic business moguls, like Patti LaBelle, Vernon Jordan, Hank Aaron, and Yolanda Adams.

 

3. For the Mom Who Is Tired of Cooking

 

Instead of just taking you mother out to her favorite restaurant on Sunday, surprise her with a card and a gift certificate that will allow her to dine out at another time.

 

4. For the Stressed Out Mom

 

Is your mother in need of some self-care, pampering, or perhaps, a relaxing massage? If so, consider getting her a gift certificate for a day at the spa. And, if you really want to make her happy, add a subscription to try and taste new wines.

 

5. For the Mom Who Likes Looking Good

 

Many women of color know how challenging and frustrating it can be to find makeup for their complexion. But Kimberly Smith, a Washington, D.C.-based attorney, has created a solution. She founded Marjani Beauty Company, a beauty and cosmetics e-comm site that sells beauty, skincare, and hair care products specifically designed for black and brown women. Having your mom pick out some products on you from this website would be a great gift!

An easy way to make a home away from home for your baby

by

Brandi Riley

posted in Products

Nothing could have prepared my son Jamie for the family he was born into. Loud and social, we love getting together to eat, hang out, and laugh. There were a few times when my baby was teeny tiny when the noise would bother him, but now he’s used to it. He moves his head from side to side, gazing at whoever’s talking, and kicking his little feet when the conversation gets especially good. He fits right in!

We spend a lot of time at my in-laws’ house where most of the social gatherings are held. We’re over there just about every Sunday after church, and several times during the week, especially in the summer. Although my son enjoys the festivities, there are times that I have to pull him away to tend to his needs. Sometimes I have to change his diaper. Other times he needs to be nursed. Every once in awhile, he’ll start wailing like a banshee, and I know that he’s overstimulated and needs some rest.

Because this house is like our home away from home, it’s easier for us to keep a small stash of things there that our baby might need. I like not having to drag things from our place to theirs every time we come over. It also makes pop-up visits easier. My super-smart husband put together a home-away-from-home bag stuffed with diapers, clothes, and everything else Jamie might need while visiting with his grandparents. According to my husband’s list, that includes:

∙ A washcloth
∙ Baby wash
∙ Lotion
∙ Hand sanitizer
∙ Two blankets
∙ Two pair of socks
∙ A thermometer
∙ Medicine in case the baby gets sick
∙ A pair of fuzzy pajamas
∙ Five outfits

I can admit that when he first put the bag together before the baby was born, I thought he was overdoing it. Why do we need to keep five changes of clothes handy? It seemed excessive. But then Jamie had a couple of blowouts back-to-back and I had to tell my husband that he was right. He was also right about the stack of diapers he packed, and not one, but two, pacifiers. I hate it when that happens!

The bag stays tucked away in a guest room until we need it, and then we can pull out what we need when we’re there. We recently added a Fisher-Price Stow ‘n Go Bassinet to our stash. During those moments when Jamie needs some downtime, or when the party is going a little long, the bassinet is exactly what we need.

I go into an empty room, nurse Jamie, and place him in the bassinet. Setting it up is as easy as popping the four legs on, and once we’re done, we can fold it up and put it in the carrier bag that it comes in. Even if he doesn’t go to sleep, our baby likes to lay in the Stow ‘n Go because he can still see what’s going on through the mesh on the sides.

Even though Jamie might not have been prepared to join our loud family, we were certainly prepared for him! It didn’t take much to add this little bundle to our parties, and make him feel comfortable and like home wherever he is.

5 easy rainy day activities to entertain your kids

by

Sabrina Garibian

posted in Products

I keep a running list of easy rainy day activities to reference when a summer rainy day inevitably hits. In the summer we do a lot of swimming, riding bikes and scooters, playing soccer, and having water balloon fights. On rainy days or even when it’s extra hot we try to find some activities we can do indoors under the comfort of shelter and air conditioning.

Here are 5 easy and fun rainy day activities to entertain your kids:

1. Play pretend camping.

rainy day activities pretend camping

Set up a tent with sheets, or in our case, hop inside the playhouse, and pretend to be camping. We pack picnic lunches, stick fresh marshmallows on sticks and pretend to roast them over a pretend fire we make from orange tissue paper and Lego Duplo bricks.

2. Make slime.

With Elmer’s glue, contact lens solution, baking soda, and food coloring, you can make a safe and fun batch of slime. We use these IKEA Smula trays to contain the mess. On this particular day we made Earth slime by mixing a batch of blue slime with a batch of glitter green.

3. Make music.

We bought the Schylling bell set (Amazon, $ 21.99) around last Christmas to participate in a church Christmas concert. I can’t believe how handy it has become! On rainy days we take out the bell set, make drums with wooden spoons and pots, and have a concert.

4. Have a water balloon fight.

rainy day activities water balloon fight

If it’s a warm summer rain, why not get out and play in it? We had an epic water balloon fight in the middle of a light rain storm, and it was so fun! Our water balloon fight ground rules are no hitting faces, only one balloon at a time, and you can’t get anyone who doesn’t want to play. We love the Bunch O Balloons because you can blow up a hundred water balloons in a minute.

5. Teach your child a classic game. 

learn to play chess rainy day activity

Did you know 4 is a good age to start learning to play chess? You start by teaching your child the rules of each piece and then over time and years teach them strategy. With younger kids you can start with checkers or UNO. We love classic games!

We love rainy day activities even when it isn’t raining. Sometimes it’s just nice to take a break from the sun and get creative as a family. Enjoy your next rainy day!

What are your favorite rainy day activities?

How To Recover From Blogger Burnout In 3 Easy Ways

What Happens When You Step Away

What happens when you’ve slowed down on social media to truly reflect where you’re heading with your business?

What happens when you lose the flow of your posting schedule and you don’t even know where to start?

What happens when you think your voice won’t matter anymore?

What happens when you feel stuck?

You haven’t spoken up in over 2 months and we all know that is forever in the online world. You’ve not posted on all your social media platforms, You haven’t recorded a video, You’ve not showed up in your own FB group! What happens to your self-esteem and your confidence when these actions take place. Well, I should really ask what happens to your self-esteem and confidence when nothing has taken place or when you are sucked into this idea that you have to be online 24-7 in order to make a dollar? Well, it can be pretty depressing to know or should I rather say “think” that you have to start all over.

“Truth is being on social media all the time does not equate to running a business or conducting business activity”

You didn’t always feel this way…You actually had some rhyme or reason to what you were doing months before but somehow you’ve experienced something called burnout. That’s what it is. I hate this term burnout. It feels so cliche, it feels like I crashed and burned and there’s no return. There’s no getting back up. But really with all these emotions and thoughts there is light at the end of the tunnel. There is a lesson to be learned and taught to others.

So…let me revisit those questions and share with you my answer.

What can happen when you’ve slowed down on social media?

For starters you get to reflect where you were/are heading with your business… So in my book, amazing things can happen! You begin to have a new sense of confidence and clarity. You can find a new sense of commitment to your goals and what you stand for in your business. You can begin to find your own voice again. You know what when you are constantly online being bombarded by everyone else’s messages you can begin to sound like or imitate someone you really admire. But guess what? You aren’t that person so this time away can bring about a uniqueness in you, and difference in you where you begin to stand out more in your own niche in this sea of online businesses.

What can happen when you lose your flow of your posting schedule and you don’t even know where to start?

Realistically you haven’t lost your flow…you had it scheduled once before. If you scheduled it before I’m sure you can refer back to your old schedule but this time with a breath of fresh ideas and opinions. You can find it on a piece of paper a word document, one of your planners. Start looking back and re-evaluating what you were doing before the burnout. You may just be in a bit of a funk…YOU personally and internally may not be in a flow but that’s ok. Begin to reconnect with your creator first, with the God who created you and listen in to your spirit and where He would have you begin. He’s given you a message for others and you know you gotta get it out to the masses. Start small. Start with an inspirational photo, feel free to reintroduce yourself. Do whatever feels right to you but whatever you do never give up because you lost your flow or feel like you don’t know where to start. I can help with that…I hope this blog post is helping with that now.

What happens when you think your voice won’t matter?

Well honey, this is more of an internal thing. If you are feeling like your voice won’t matter then guess what…it won’t. It’s not for you to determine how your story will connect with others. It’s not for you to give a consensus on the wonderful message imparted within you. Nope you don’t get to judge your message before sharing with others.

When I stepped outside of my own comfort zone and began to share my story and share what I stood for, guess what. I got an astounding…”That was powerful”. This was a mindset shift that I was sharing with other women in my group.

Did you know that I re-edited and re-edited and stressed over this message for days before I put it out. Your voice is your message and when you share it just know if you’ve touched one person you’ve done your job!!!

Conclusion

Whether you are recovering from “Burn Out” or currently experiencing it as you read this post, it’s important to remember that business is a journey and there is no race to the finish line. Brands continually evolve and grow just like we do as people. Sometimes that growth may feel stunted and other times you may experience a growth spurt. But most importantly, building a business is a journey through personal development.

Learning more about yourself and allowing your commitment to shine through regardless of where you think you should be in business are important steps to showing up and serving others through your business.
