Disclosure: Post sponsored by Sunbeam Products, Inc. but all opinions are my own. 

Last spring I began going to a local barre studio and discovered how much I love working out in group classes. For years I spent my workout time in solo pursuits, running on the treadmill, ducking into the small weight room at the gym running through our neighborhood or on nearby trails, and I was a little surprised by how much inspiration I found by surrounding myself with strong, enthusiastic women. Their energy and support make getting up well before dawn worth it, and the classes are a part of my morning that set the tone for my day. I can’t imagine giving them up.

How Heat Therapy Can Help With Your Workout

Adding workouts meant adding muscle soreness

I missed running, though. I missed checking off miles for a training schedule, seeing the sun rise over the horizon and matching the pounding of my feet to the beating of my heart and the music in my earbuds. Slowly, I began adding runs after my classes and on the weekends. The combination of classes and running provide the balance I crave in my days, but they also push my body to limits I haven’t felt in many years. As I contemplate training for a half-marathon, I know I’ll be adding more and more miles to my schedule, and my muscles are already complaining a bit. 

Heat therapy for pain relief

My foam roller and I are developing a close, personal relationship, but I also find heat to be a huge relief, especially on my lower back. Heat has been found as an effective, fast and natural way of helping to alleviate muscle pain and soreness, and for that same reason, Sunbeam® pain relief products use heat as a solution to assist with pain and discomfort, helping increase blood flow to sore areas for muscle relaxation and faster healing. Sunbeam® heat therapy will help you “feel the ahh,” and you can combat your aches and pain in a quick, non-invasive and drug free way. Like me, you might discover heat therapy will be the key to #FindYourAhh. 


The benefits of the Sunbeam® King Size XpressHeat™ Heating Pad

The Sunbeam® King Size XpressHeat™ Heating Pad now lives next to my couch, because the XpressHeat™ Heating Pad technology helps provide fast heat in 30 seconds for quick relief. The heat-therapy helps increase blood flow to sore areas for muscle relaxation and faster healing. I don’t always know when I’ll have time to sit with the heating pad, and the super quick heat time means I can turn it on and grab a few minutes of relief without waiting much time at all for the pad to get warm. In addition, I appreciate the following qualities of the Sunbeam® King Size XpressHeat™ Heating Pad:

  • Soft microplush, fully washable pad
  • Can be used with dry or moist heat
  • Digital controller with LCD display
  • 6 heat-settings
  • Select hour auto-off
  • XL size for more coverage
  • Measures 12″ x 24″
  • 5-year limited warranty

Are you interested in trying heat therapy for any aches and pains you’re experiencing? Use the code SASSYMOM to receive 20% off Sunbeam products through 10/10/16. We’re also giving away a Sunbeam Heating Pad to one lucky reader. Enter for your chance to win. Official rules can be found here.

Now that school is back in session, many families are dealing with busier than normal schedules.  It seems that when the kids aren’t in school, parents are either busy helping with homework or driving the constant carpool to after-school lessons, extra-curricular activities, and sports. This is certainly the case for our families and we feel like we are always on the go!

With all of these added items on the calendar, sometimes eating healthy falls by the wayside. That’s why we were so excited to discover the Ready Pac Foods line of Bistro Bowl salads and Ready Snax snack options. They are healthy, on-the-go meals and snacks that are perfect for our busy back-to-school schedule.

On-the-Go Meals and Healthy Snacks from Ready Pac (Giveaway)

Making snack time easy

Like most kids, ours would snack all day long if given the chance. Because of this we like to make sure our fridge is stocked with healthy options. We also know that kids love anything in a package, so they get really excited about Ready Pac Food’s snack cups that are filled with sweet, fresh fruit. The single-serving sizes make them perfect for a snack at home or in lunch boxes.

Ready Snax from Ready Pac are an After School Lifesaver for Moms

There are days we spend a lot of time in the car. Right after school, the kids quickly get homework done and then change before we rush out the door on the way to sports practices. The snack packs are easy and quick to grab on the way out the door. Plus, they are filled with good-for-them foods that will fuel their little bodies all the way through those hot soccer practices and hold them over until dinnertime. Our favorites are the veggies, flatbread and hummus, or the apples, yogurt and trail mix.

The Best Ready-Made Salads

On-the-go salads

Sometimes we avoid salads for lunch because the prep-time is more involved and messier than other lunch options. However, we love a good salad with flavorful toppings and the Bistro Bowl Salads make it simple to enjoying delicious, restaurant-style salads at home.

Want to win up to $3,000 in prizes in the Ready Pac Foods We’ve Got Your Back Back-to-School Sweepstakes? That $2,500 Amazon gift card could sure come in handy!


Bistro Bowl Salads are the BEST! (Giveaway)

Everything you need is packed into one bowl — even the fork — so that you can easily enjoy a savory salad, even on the go. These have been our go-to lunch option recently and even our older kids have started asking to take these to school for lunch.


Healthy eating for busy families

It’s so easy to fall into the fast food trap and make the drive-thru run, but just because we are busy does not mean that has to be our only option. Ready Pac Foods has so many options to keep us eating healthy during the hustle and bustle of back to school and flavors that the whole family can enjoy! Make sure you use the Ready Pac Foods store locator to find where these products are carried in your state.

Enter to win a $150 Visa gift card

Children’s products that do double-duty are ideal, but ones that have three different uses are the magical unicorn of parenting. Prepare yourself for the Learning Tower by Little Partners, a step stool, easel, and playhouse, all in one!

Parenting Must-Have: The Learning Tower by Little Partners

Use No. 1: The perfect step stool

At some point, all kids hit the oh-so-fun “I can do it myself” phase. Of course this is perfectly fine since we all know participation in certain things is necessary for learning, and in our house it is a big part of our family time. But, when you have small people and high counters, next thing you know you’re tripping over an ugly step stool trying to get to the stove or, like in our case, your slightly clumsy 5-year-old has fallen off a chair and is now a crying puddle on the floor. So much for enjoyable family time.

The Learning Tower Step Stool by Little Partners

The Learning Tower by Little Partners eliminates the risk of falling in a very beautiful and functional way. Crafted from the highest quality layered birch and available in six different finishes, this step stool is not only incredibly sturdy, but it’s also really aesthetically pleasing. It actually looks like a nice piece of furniture in your home, not just another giant plastic atrocity for the kids.

The platform itself can be easily raised and lowered to four different heights and is a spacious, allowing your child to move about without the danger of losing their footing. I’ve been told it can hold up to 500 pounds, but since I was unable to get my entire family up there at once, I’m just going to trust them on that one.

The Learning Tower Art Easel
Use No. 2: The multi-function art easel

The Learn and Share Easel ($70) is an additional piece that can be purchased to accompany the Learning Tower. I highly recommend getting this as it adds functionality without taking away from the overall look of the piece. Just want the easel and not the Tower? Or, no longer want it attached to the Tower? The easel can be wall-mounted, which is nice because it’s a really great option for an easel, regardless.

The easel comes with two paint cups, an eraser, and a reversible blue/black chalkboard that easily slides to reveal a magnetic whiteboard. This is a favorite at our house since our kids can’t play with magnets on our stainless steel fridge.

The Learning Tower: 3-in-1 Fun for Kids (Giveaway)
Use No. 3: Add on playtime fun

According to my daughter, who has been playing with the Learning Tower non-stop since it arrived, this is the best feature of the bunch. And, I would have to agree. Imaginations are free to go crazy with the once-piece interchangeable slipcovers that easily slide over the Tower (even with the easel on!), turning it into an ice cream shop/lemonade stand, or a popcorn counter/puppet show theater.

When I say it’s easy to change the slipcover, I mean it. My 5-year-old has it mastered, so I’m not constantly having to come running every time she changes activities. My daughter has even taken it upon herself to create puppets out of toilet paper tubes just for her baby sister — it’s seriously adorable and priceless. Just like the easel, the slipcovers can be purchased separately or bundled together with the tower and easel in your choice of finish and slipcover in the Learning Tower Combo.

An honest opinion from a picky mom

I really can’t say enough good things about the Learning Tower Combo. The Tower itself feels really sturdy and high quality, and the finish blends well with my other furniture, so when I stick it in the corner when not being used, it’s not a total eyesore. But, most of all, it’s been super entertaining. Whenever something comes into this house and it gets more than a passing glance, much less hours  of play for both the baby and the big kid, then you know it’s a winner. The Learning Tower by Little Partners is winning all over the place with me. I see lots more pretend ice cream and puppet shows in my future!

1. Ditch the grocery store caramels

I had just finished a little treat of what I thought were some yummy caramels (from the grocery store, mind you!) when the caramels from Annie B’s arrived on my doorstep. I nearly fell on the floor when I tasted how creamy and smooth and soft these were! Handmade in copper pots for nearly 40-years, Annie B’s caramels come in a variety of flavors… although, we can’t resist the sea salt, if you must know.

2. Speaking of caramels

If you prefer a little chocolate with your caramels, these are such a treat. The B.T McElrath Chocolatier Bites are the perfect size for when the only way to beat your winter funk is with something sweet and the Salted Butter Caramel Bites are so satisfying. I love that this brand isn’t afraid to produce chocolate flavor combinations that push the envelope — the results give a huge amount of taste in one little bite.

3. Movie night gets an upgrade

There’s nothing I love more than a cozy movie night on a stormy winter evening… and when it comes to popcorn, our family is pretty picky. With five of us, there are evenings when everyone seems to want a different kind of popcorn, which is why KuKuRuZa Gourmet Popcorn is a must-have for our winter movie nights. Order the Collection, which includes 18 2-cup bags of a variety of their signature flavors, or choose larger bags in just the flavors you know your family will love. Either way, this popcorn is a major winter movie night upgrade!

4. Wine, obviously

A winter survival guide without wine? There’s just no way! The TRIbella Wine Areator has been a favorite of mine for a while now and is always my go-to pick for a special hostess gift or housewarming gift. But, in the winter, when survival can be as easy as popping a bottle of wine to make a chilly day a little bit warmer, there’s something special and luxurious about using my TRIbella to pour it. And, with its innovative triple-stream pour, even if you’re down to your last bottle of red, TRIbella will make it taste like it was your first pick all along.

5. Keeping cozy and chic outside

For those days when you absolutely must venture out into the winter weather, this scarf and glove set from Little Giraffe is a must. Best known for their luxe baby blankets, this set will have you bundled up just as cozy and chic as your little one when you’re running errands or getting some fresh air this winter. Available in three soft colors and with gloves that are either traditional or finger-less, the set will have you braving even the worst of winter storms in style and comfort.

6. Staying warm on kid-friendly winter adventures

Gloves on. Gloves off. Gloves back on again. There are times when all you seem to do is go round-and-round with your stroller… and your gloves, that is! The stroller mittens from 7 A.M. Enfant are truly revolutionary for parents who love to have adventures outdoors during the winter. Simply attach them to your stroller handlebar and leave them there. Now, you can help your little one without the fuss of getting your gloves on and off — they’ll be waiting on your handle, just where you left them!

7. Have a little fun… inside

When it’s too stormy, wet, cold or snowy to head outside, the least you can do is have some fun inside! Beloved Seattle-based cupcake brand, Cupcake Royale, has the best at-home kits for making their signature cupcakes when the weather is keeping you in. With everything you’ll need to make a dozen cupcakes, including the tools and their to-die-for Buttercream Frosting, you can even transport the cupcakes to a play date in the handy box that the supplies come in!

8. Maintain your winter favorites

I don’t know about you, but I’m a sweater girl. They get so much wear during the winter months and the last thing I want to do when the weather is bad is make a stop at the dry cleaners. The products from The Laundress are such a lifesaver. Created in formulas that are gentle on my clothes, without any harsh chemicals that will cause damage, I know I can trust even my most beloved winter sweaters to their care.

9. Solve your winter skin problems

My skin goes crazy in winter — from eczema to dry hands to chapped cheeks, keeping it soft and pretty during the winter seems impossible without having dozens of products on hand. The most recently debuted product in our Luxe Winter Survival Guide is Doctor Rogers RESTORE. Comprised completely from plant-based ingredients — meaning it’s free of petroleum, parabens, preservatives and fragrances — this little jar is a lifesaver for when my skin get hit hard by winter weather. The best part? A little dab of RESTORE goes a long way without being greasy or slimy on my skin.

Treating your skin well during winter should be a top priority. And, doing it with products that are simply amazing is a great place to start. The all-organic skincare collections from Sally B’s Skin Yummies offer a variety of products that will make your winter skin as luxe as possible. With products like their B Quenched Facial Oil that are a dream for dry skin in the winter months, you’ll find dozens of products to keep your skin happy and fresh, as well as yummy bath products and makeup, too.

All about the Britax B-Safe 35 Car Seat

Choosing a car seat is one of the more daunting of tasks when you’re expecting a new arrival. When I was pregnant with our first baby, I did everything I could to try to find out which car seat was best — aimlessly walking down the aisles of my local baby store, scouring the Internet for safety reviews, and compiling research in an effort to choose the perfect car seat. Fortunately, I found that all my investigative efforts (which at some point rivaled that of a seasoned CSI detective) kept pointing me to Britax.

Now years later, as we are awaiting baby number three, I knew exactly what to choose — the Britax B-Safe 35. This sleek car seat hits all the marks, and then some, for reassuring the on-the-go parent that their new little one is riding around in first class style and safety.

Have you heard about the recent Britax B-Safe 35 handle recall? Read more about the details and how to see if your Britax is included on the Britax website.

See the Safety Features of the Britax B-Safe 35

It’s all in the details

The Britax B-Safe 35 is top of the line in rear-facing car seats for infants 4 to 35 pounds. The B-Safe 35 features Britax’s SafeCell Impact Protection in both the car seat and its base to give your baby the ultimate care in car seat safety technology. With its deep protective shell and steel-framed base specifically designed to absorb the impact Baby might experience from any crash forces (including side-impact crashes), you can rest assure that your baby will be protected with the latest and greatest safety technology on the market to date.

Installing the Britax B-Safe 35

All that safety technology isn’t worth anything unless the car seat itself is installed right. Car seats can be tricky to install, especially for a new parent, so it’s not shocking that the majority of car seats end up being installed improperly. Britax definitely took this into account when designing the B-Safe 35. We found installation to not only by easy, but that there were several features to assist in the ease of making sure we can protect our baby with just a few simple steps. The easy to pull-center adjusting strap and the centered guide along the side of the base were just a couple of the features included to help give us the peace of mind that we needed to know that our baby will be safe and sound riding around town.

NEW B-Warm Car Seat Cover from Britax

Bundle up Baby

One of the biggest challenges for any parent having a new baby in winter is how to keep Baby warm while on the go. Fortunately, long gone are the days of having to tuck multiple blankets around your precious newborn (that inevitably will get kicked off in a matter of minutes) or having to throw a blanket over the top of the car seat in order to try to combat the elements. The Britax B-Warm Car Seat Cover allows the modern parent to keep Baby warm with the simple zip of a zipper. Without the hassle of worrying if anything will fall off, get lost, or constantly need to be adjusted, the B-Warm Cover is, hands down, one of our favorite winter accessories.

Don’t miss these winter travel safety tips from our friends at Britax!

Best Products for Keeping Baby Warm

The Britax B-Warm Cover is super easy to install on your B-Safe car seat. With just a quick stretch around the car seat, the insulted cover is set in place within a matter of seconds and you are ready to head out the door, reassured that your baby is warm and comfortable with in their seat.

NEW from Britax: B-Warm Car Seat Cover

Keeping Baby Warm in Winter with Britax

The Britax B-Warm Cover features also features convenient flip-up sides with a zippered snap enclosure that allows for quick and easy temperature adjustments. The cover also helps repel moisture, which is especially important when battling the varying elements of Mother Nature during winter.

Knowing that baby will be cozy, warm, and dry during travel to and from one place to the next is just the reassurance any busy parent on the go needs.
