Save with the new Plenti rewards program

There’s something so sweet about the start of summer — the weather is getting warmer, but it’s not too hot yet, the bustle of the school year is behind you and your grill is ready for BBQ season. This year, for your summer BBQs and celebrations, use Plenti, a brand-new loyalty program, to help you earn back some of what you spend in points that you can redeem with some of your favorite brands.

How to use Plenti to save money

Here’s how Plenti works: Start by downloading the app onto your phone, by visiting one of their partner locations or by simply enrolling on the Plenti website. It only takes a few minutes before you’re ready to start racking up the rewards points.

The best part about Plenti is that it brings multiple brands together into one program — no more carrying around dozens of reward cards in your wallet or having a keychain full of mini-cards. Just pull up your app or take out your single membership card when you’re making purchases at stores such as RiteAid or Macy’s, when buying your gas at Exxon Mobil or renting a car at Enterprise, or even when you’re paying your AT&T or Nationwide bill.

Shop with Pleni at Rite Aid locations to save

Some rewards are collected simply by making purchases and some rewards are earned by purchasing specific items as you shop. You can see on the Plenti app that there is a special reward for purchasing Banana Boat products at Rite Aid, as well as on signage in the store when you’re shopping. They really make it as easy as possible!

What we might love most of all about Plenti is that not only can you use it to earn points paying bills with their partners, but you can also redeem your rewards at your favorite participating stores! Paying your AT&T bill using Plenti suddenly earns you discounts at Macy’s, for example. Trust us, paying those bills or filling up at Exxon Mobil is going to feel that much better when you’ll be able to redeem them for that pair of shoes you’ve been eyeing.

Another cool feature is that with certain partners, your Plenti rewards are even better when you also use your existing customer rewards program or in-store credit card. At Macy’s, for example, you earn extra Macy’s reward points when you use your Plenti card alongside your Macy’s card. Remember that just because Plenti is from the American Express family, doesn’t mean you have to use an American Express credit card to earn rewards — it works with any form of payment you choose, even your other credit or debit cards or cash.. And, signing up for Plenti is free.

Plenti- Receipt

We used Plenti to purchase all of our summer BBQ necessities — from beach towels for aprées sprinkler sessions with the neighborhood kids to BBQ sauces that will be perfect for the grill to copper mugs for cocktails made just for a long evenings enjoying your backyard. Between our purchases at Macy’s and Rite Aid, we earned 700 Plenti points that we can use on our next purchase!

BEST of Summer HATS

Best Floppy Hats for Summer

You cannot survive Summer without a few stylish hats and floppy hats are one of the trendiest accessories for Summer. I am a big fan of fedora hats and Panama hats – I’ve got a nice collection of them going, but I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect floppy hat. Hats are perfect for busy moms on the go to look stylish without having to fuss about doing their hair. Hats also help get you out of that ponytail rut too. It doesn’t matter if your hair is a little dirty or a bit messy when you throw on a hat, it actually looks like you wanted those messy waves.

When buying a floppy hat to wear as a daily accessory make sure the brim is not too big and floppy, you still need to be able to drive and actually see what you are doing!  The larger brimmed floppy hats are for laying at the pool and blocking your face from the sun. In which case you may need two floppy hats for Summer!

Floppy Hats

1. Straw Outback Hat $39.95  / 2. MultiColor Floppy Hat $42 / 3.  Straw Floppy Hat $38           / 4. Braided Straw Sun Hat $34.95 / 5. Stoned Washed Fedora Hat $40

Micheal Stars Floppy Hats


I love both of these Micheal Stars floppy hats to add a little color to the mix. Micheal Stars Floppy Hat Tomato $42

 

Floppy Summer Hats
Blue Straw Floppy Hat $38  / . David & Young Floppy Hat $22

Seafolly Floppy Hats

ECHO Watercolor Floppy Hat $48 / Seafolly Floppy Hat Black $52

Barbecue recipes with a twist
  • Bourbon Barbecue Sliders with Bleu Cheese from Saucy Pear is a delectable twist on the classic slider. The bourbon adds the perfect amount of flavor to the sauce, and you’ll love the bleu cheese spread so much you’ll be looking around for other uses for your new favorite condiment.
  • Barbecue Pulled Pork Taquitos from Life Tastes Good are a fantastic way to stretch your menu and use leftover pork. Leftovers on their own might not seem special, but rolling them into these taquitos makes an entirely new — and delicious — meal.
  • Slow Cooker BBQ Chicken Quesadillas from Belle of the Kitchen are simple and delicious. The meat is prepared in your slow cooker, so the cleanup is minimal, and quesadillas are a fun way to incorporate BBQ recipes into your weekly menu.
  • BBQ Chicken Pizza from The Optimalist Kitchen makes use of the perfect pizza dough for a recipe you’ll use long after National BBQ Month is finished. The pizza is great for summer months, and you can whip up a new batch of chicken or use leftovers from a meal made earlier in the week.
  • Smoked Chicken Wings with Turmeric Honey Mustard Glaze from Droolworthy are, in fact, drool worthy. Smoked wings really bring out the flavor in the chicken, and the turmeric honey mustard is the perfect balance of tangy and sweet to coat the crispy meat.
  • Bacon Wrapped Hot Dogs from Garnish & Glaze are sure to be a crowd pleaser during your next outdoor party. Easy to make — and simple to adapt for kids who might not be open to experimenting with new foods — they can be popped on the grill and topped however you’d like.
  • Coconut-Harissa Grilled Shrimp Skewers from Floating Kitchen allow you to indulge your love for seafood while grilling this summer. The prep work is minimal, and a light meal is lovely as the weather starts to get warmer.
Find your signature barbecue sauce
  • Blueberry Chipotle Barbecue Sauce from The Suburban Soapbox is a fun twist on your classic barbecue sauce for summer grilling. Ready in just 30 minutes, this sauce will make all of your tried-and-true grilled meals taste even better.
  • Carolina Bold Gold from Patio Daddio is a mouth-watering interpretation of a classic South Carolina mustard sauce. The sauce is bold enough to make your pork shine but mellow enough for kids to enjoy, too, making it a true crowd favorite.
  • Pineapple Brown Sugar BBQ Sauce from The Recipe Rebel blends sweet and sour together perfectly for a tangy sauce with just a bit of spice. You’ll want to try it on all of your meats this summer — pork, chicken and seafood all work well with the balanced flavors.

Book and cocktail pairing for your spring book club meeting

As the evenings get longer, book clubs are looking for spring reading. Try one of our book club recommendations, ranging from a funny take on fame-hunting gone too far to a tense page turner. To get the conversations really flowing, we’ve included a few cocktail pairings to convince your friends to join — even if they haven’t completely finished the book.

spring book recommendations

Cool off with an icy drink this summer

Emma Donoghue, the best-selling author of Room, amps up the tension with Frog Music (Amazon, $18). You might not think San Francisco in 1876 can hold your attention, but when a young girl is shot in a railroad saloon, you won’t be able to stop reading until you find out who killed Jenny Bonnet — and why. Her French burlesque dancer friend survives and begins the hunt for Jenny’s killer, but Blanche finds herself navigating a world she doesn’t understand — and the killer is on the hunt for her, too.

Set in the middle of a heat wave and smallpox epidemic, Frog Music swelters between its pages. Keep cool with a Blackberry Moscow Mule, Cake -n- Knife‘s fruity twist on the classic cocktail.

Laugh, cry and hug your mom friends with this anthology

Impress your book club with your pick of an anthology this spring. No matter how much time your friends have — or don’t have — to spend on this month’s book, they’ll be able to read at least a few of the unparalleled essays in Listen to Your Mother: What She Said Then, What We’re Saying Now (Amazon, $20). Edited by Ann Imig, the founder of the Listen to Your Mother show, a series of live readings taking place around Mother’s Day, around the country, this collection celebrates all kinds of mothers and all aspects of motherhood. From the hilarious to heartbreaking, raunchy to reverent, every member of your book club will find an essay — or several — that have her saying, “me, too.”

Much like the way the essays in Listen to Your Mother: What She Said Then, What We’re Saying Now blend together for a complete experience, you’ll love the way the medley of flavors blends together in the Black Cherry Sangria from Low Cal Cocktails.

spring book recommendations

Stay up all night with this page-turner

When Rachel — a girl on a train — sees something shocking during her daily commute, she shares it with the police. Readers will begin to wonder if she’s done more harm than good as they read The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins (Amazon, $14). The tightly-wound thriller will keep you up at night, and your book club won’t be able to stop talking about the plot twists and turns.

Pair The Girl on the Train with the Pimm Palmer from Chattavore. The cocktail has an added jolt of caffeine to keep you alert — so you won’t miss any of the book’s delicious details.

When the quest for fame goes horribly wrong

When the reality show you’ve been dying to land goes to another family, the only thing for a patent mom to do is give up on her nine-year old daughter and set her sights on the fame-potential of the one still in her womb. Pretty Ugly by Kirker Butler, of Family Guy, explores what happens when a family’s priorities get hopelessly of sync. Surrounded on all sides, from their fame-hungry mother to their pill-popping father who gets his fix on the job to a murder-planning grandmother, the four Miller children don’t have many (stable) options. You’ll want to read this instead of watching your favorite reality TV show, which makes this a definite must-pick for your book club.

A family as spicy as the Millers deserves a cocktail that kicks up the heat. Try the Bloody Mary from Home Bar Girl, and you’ll have the perfect drink to read during your Pretty Ugly book club discussion — even if you’re meeting during brunch.

A non-alcoholic drink for any book club meeting

Keeping a mocktail on the menu ensures that all of your guests have something to enjoy. Whether you have a friend who chooses not to drink, a pregnant reader or a few little ones joining your afternoon book club meeting, a special non-alcoholic beverage is a fabulous way to make everyone feel special. The Strawberry Orange Blossom Sparkler from Baking a Moment is the perfect fizzy fruit treat.

Non-Toxic Nail Polishes: Mineral Fusion

Some girls are just born girly-girls. I can still remember when my almost 8-year-old was just a toddler. She was always fascinated by my painted toenails — always pointing at them and smiling! So finally, one day, I decided I would paint her little toenails pink and, as you can imagine, the rest was history. She loved them painted and would happily show them off to everyone who would take a look. Even though she loved being all dolled up, I was still a little concerned because I didn’t like the idea of the chemicals, toxins, and fumes being near my little girl.

Moms of fancy little girls have no need to worry thanks to some really wonderful, natural nail polishes on the market. They are all non-toxic, odorless and totally kid-friendly… and mom-friendly, too!

Non-Toxic Nail Polishes for Girls

Non-toxic nail polish for kids: 5 Brands to try

Hopscotch Kids
This brand offers 19 colors that are all playfully named after nursery rhymes and schoolyard games. Their polish is water-based, non-toxic, and steers clear of all the chemicals found in traditional nail polish. Hopscotch Kids also offers a top-coat to protect nails from scratches and add an extra bit of shine.

Piggy Paint
Maybe one of the most well-known brands, Piggy Paint is a water-based polish that is not flammable and is made of specially formulated natural ingredients. Their precious tag-line “Natural as Mud” speaks directly about the safety of their product and how safe it is for your little ones. This line also offers a nail polish remover that is low-odor, contains no acetone, is hypoallergenic, and biodegradable.

Non-Toxic Nail Polish for Girls: Piggy Paint

Guess what moms? Non-toxic nail polish is not just for kids. There are also a lot of natural nail polish brands geared towards women, too! Do yourself a favor and steer clear of the fumes with these non-toxic polishes that will give you a great looking manicure without turning your nails brittle or yellow.

Mineral Fusion
This is a US-based company that offers products that are free of formaldehyde, parabens, camphor, and artificial colors. Their 100% vegan line of nail polishes are specially formulated from a combination of minerals that produces an exquisite line of 61 colors.

Scotch Naturals
Here’s a brand with a fun twist… shaken, not stirred, of course. Because why would you stir your nail polish? Scotch Naturals is free of all seven chemical ingredients found in most nail polishes, while most brands only boast being free of five. Currently they have 16 fun cocktail-inspired colors available, with plans of expanding this summer. That’s a happy hour we can get behind!

Priti NYC
A luxury, all-natural, vegan-friendly professional nail care line,  Priti Nail was an idea tossed around creator Kim D’Amato’s head while she was pregnant. Wanting to give her and her child the best there is to offer in healthcare and lead an organic lifestyle, she thought why not apply this change to her nails too? Thus, she gave birth to her non-toxic nail care line and a beautiful daughter. The line now offers over 100 different shades.

5 Non-Toxic Nail Polishes to Try

With all of these natural, non-toxic nail polish options, it’s easy to trade in harsh, smelly chemicals for bright, sparkly colors that will give you — and your daughter — worry-free, stylish nails.

Now tell us, which color will you choose?

Spring’s fitness fashion trends


essential tank

Luscious lemon

This spring, it’s all about zesty yellow. And, while this season’s “it” hue is popping up on everything from swimsuits to dresses and accessories and nails, sun-lit gear is the best way to add some unexpected flair to your workout look.

Wondering how to wear this poppy shade? Throw on a simple solid top for balance, and prepare for your most motivating, mood-boosting, and invigorating workout ever.

Get the look: CALIA by Carrie Underwood Women’s Essential Tank Top

floral capris
Fierce floral

We can’t get enough of the new and innovative ways floral prints are being brought to life this season. Traditionally thought of as pretty and feminine, 2015’s hottest floral prints are brighter, more graphic, and include a touch of tough. Make the look work for you by pairing them with a classic tank, super-sleek ponytail, and simple sneaker. Slip ‘em on and your spring wardrobe will be coming up rosy in no time.

lace back shirt
Lovely lace

A pretty girl go-to, lace has continuously been on the top of every fancy lady’s wish list. But, this season, the power of this beautiful fabric is stronger than ever. Popping up on everything from flirty spring dresses to perfectly-pretty workout gear, this textured fabric is the best way to stay cool (hello, ventilation!) and cute at the same time. Slip some on and prepare to turn heads from every angle.

Strappy sports bras

Reveal your toned, sculpted shoulders and back in a sexy, strappy sports bra. Wear this season’s essential workout piece under your favorite racer-back tank, backless top, or slip it on solo to show off those abs. Our new season favorites are so cute, we’re wearing them for working out, going out, and beyond. There’s never been a better time to step up your support system.

Get the look: CALIA by Carrie Underwood Women’s Inner Power Seamless Double Strap Bra

These days comfy pants are not only reserved for yoga class and lazy Sunday mornings in bed. Today’s lightweight woven capris have on-trend details, a super-comfy waistband, and are versatile in style – making them perfect for the gym and beyond. The pair we love are functional enough for yoga and other light workouts, comfortable enough to lounge at home, and stylish enough to wear around town.

CORAL Crush
Coral Color Crush

Color is one of my absolute favorite things. I LOVE color. In fact, I hardly have any black or grey clothing, shoes or accessories, my closet is more a rainbow of color. So when the new Spring colors start to roll in I get pretty excited. I am already obsessed with everything yellow, but coral is another Spring color that has definitely caught my eye. Coral is a nice alternative to pink and is a color that looks good on anyone. Much like navy and white, coral seems to be a Spring staple when the weather gets warmer. In fact, you’re probably ready to break out those white jeans and pairing them with coral is pretty much perfection.

Take a look at my favorite coral picks…

1. Kendra Scott Rae Coral Necklace $65
2. Benefit Cosmetics Plush Lip Gloss $16
3. Jacki Design Travel Bag $25
4. Dress My Cupcake Wood Coral Dessert Forks $21
5. Kate Spade Flamingo Phone Case $40
6. Etsy Coral Wood Jewelry Box $16
7. Essie Corals $8.50
8. Natori Feathers Contour Plunge Bra $68
9. Trina Turk Poolside cosmetic bag $68
10. Dolce Vita Datsun Leather Sandal $70
11. Tory Burch Robinson Woven Satchel $485

Do you want to add a few new items to your closet this spring without breaking the bank? We have 11 fashion finds that are all under $50! From a classic baseball hat to super-trendy joggers, these spring style must-haves will fit into your wardrobe… and your budget.

Spring Fashion Finds for Under $50

10 Must-have spring style essentials under $50

1. Classic Baseball Hat

You need one for super-sunny t-ball games… or for super-rainy ones, for that matter. Ditch that old stinky hat that you run in for something a little more stylish.

2. Tassel Bracelet

Tassels aren’t just for shoes anymore! They’re so cute on bracelets and necklaces and fresh for spring.

3. Luxe Bright Lipstick

If you’re going to splurge on something for your spring wardrobe, make it a new, bright lipstick. There’s nothing better to bring some life into clothes that you’ve had for years.

4. Floppy Hat

Good for the beach, for trips to the park and for sitting down for a few minutes to read a book in the backyard (because we know a few minutes is all you’ll get with kids!). Don’t be afraid to go big!

5. Stripe T-shirt

Stripes are always in, but don’t forget to add a new striped tee to your closet each season.

6. Clubmaster Sunglasses

An updated take on aviator sunglasses, these are a fun way to add spring style accessories to your look!

7. Jogger Pants

If you haven’t jumped into this trend yet, don’t wait any longer. Jogger pants look great on everyone, they’re insanely comfortable and, when paired with the right pieces, they are very stylish, too.

8. Cognac Carryall

Cognac goes with everything. Do  yourself a favor and add a bag in this color to your wardrobe. It’s timeless and season-less.

9. Denim Jacket

If you live somewhere that’s warm year-round, you probably already have a go-to denim jacket. But, if you don’t we suggest one in a lighter color to fit into your spring wardrobe. You’ll have it for years!

10. Gladiator Sandal

Always in style and always available in fresh, new styles each spring, a gladiator sandal is going to be your on-the-go sandal for spring.

What are you spring style must-haves that don’t break the bank?
