Pop Clocky Featured

Welcome to Life Without Pink! You can subscribe to me via RSS feed or find me at Facebook and Twitter. Thanks for visiting!Tweet It’s summer and my boys have been loving the fact that they can sleep in a bit, however they still need to wake up once in awhile before 8am so we can hit the road for a fun adventure. We were recently sent a Pop Clocky to test out, which was perfect timing! You may be wondering what exactly is this? Pop Clocky is a fun-loving alarm clock designed to wake children in a goofy, delightful way. When the alarm goes off, Pop Clock’s quirky-cute monster-esque head pops off. To stop the alarm, users simply pop Pop Clocky’s head back into place […]

Tips for Maximizing Your Phone Camera (Tools and Apps) #DisneySMMoms

Tips For Maximizing Your Phone Camera Products & Gear

Tweet   We have a really nice Canon camera that we bought a few years ago. The problem is I never want to lug it around especially when we are on-the-go with our kids. I rely heavily on my iPhone and I have to tell you it takes great photos.  Last week I attended the Disney Social Media Moms On The Road and I loved Victoria Lim’s (award-winning journalist and internationally-recognized expert in multimedia/multi-platform storytelling) session on maximizing your smartphone. She gave us resources and tips on how to use your phone and get the best photos and videos. Some of the tools and apps I’m already using, some I just found out about. Not only are these great for doing product reviews or videos […]

Tweet A few weeks ago, I was contacted by ABCMouse.com to check it out with my little guy. He’ll be graduating preschool on Thursday and I need to keep him learning throughout the summer so he’s ready for kindergarten (still can’t believe it!). So it was perfect timing to give it a try. It only took me a few minutes to set up our account. My son jumped on and quickly learned how to navigate around the website. He loves that he can learn and explore on his own and I like the fact that it’s in a safe and secure online educational environment.

Boy Mom Spotlight: Meet Sandy

Boy Mom Spotlight Meet Sandy Boys

Tweet Happy Friday everyone! I’m excited for this week’s boy mom. Before I introduce her, I want to tell you a little story. Over a year ago, my cousin told me about her neighbor (and friend) and how we needed to meet. She runs a big site for moms in New Jersey. My cousin thought we had a lot in common and that we would be a good resource for each other. Well you know life happens and we were never able to coordinate a meet-up. Fast forward to a few weeks ago. I’m standing in line with my boys for the Diggerland press event. My boys started to talk to the little boy behind them and they hit it off. I asked his mom […]

60 Outside Summer Activities for Kids

60 Outside Summer Activities for Kids Create & Learn

Tweet Growing up, I had my summers free to play with my neighborhood friends, splash in our pool, have picnics in the grass, and take day trips with my family. When the dads in my neighborhood came home from work, we would pick a backyard and BBQ. The kids would play tag or swim while the adults sat around relaxing after a long day. Some of my best childhood memories were made during summer. I was very lucky to have my mom home with us. I’m fortunate to work from home, but that means our schedule needs to be a bit more structured. I want to create special memories for my boys that hopefully they’ll always remember and cherish. Summer is a time to get […]
