Shopping online is something I enjoy doing not only because it's convenient and I save on gas, but also because a lot of times I find better deals online. Now I don't know about you, but now that I have a little family of my own, I try to save money as much as I can. That's why I shop online for almost all my needs even my car essentials. Especially with summer around the corner, I want to make sure I have my car ready for our summer family outings. My car's oil change will be due soon, so on a recent online shopping trip to, I made sure to get what I need for my upcoming oil change.
Oil filter: It's important to change the oil filter because it's what keeps your oil free from tiny, hard
particles that can damage your engine. I was able to
Oil: My car uses synthetic oil so I picked up the 5QT Pennzoil Platinum Full Synthetic for only $22.47 (rollback from $24.97).

You might be wondering why I use synthetic oil for my car. Well, because it's the best from the Pennzoil lineup and its PurePlus™technology has been proven to keep a car's pistons up to 40% cleaner. This is good because it means less trips to the mechanic in the long run. By shopping on, I get to not only save on my car's oil needs, but also on many of my other day to day needs. Next time you are looking for ways to save money, time and avoid the crowds, remember that gives you the ability to do it all. Another thing I love about being to shop online at is that if I need something right away, I can purchase it online and pick it up at the store which is quite faster than waiting for it to come in the mail. Do you shop online frequently? are there certain items you only purchase online?

Shopping for a Stroller and Car Seat #CYBEXDesign

**“This post was sponsored by CYBEX as part of a Blog Blast Activation for Influence Central.”**
If you have a bundle of joy that's on the way, whether it's yours or someone else's, I am sure that shopping for stroller is one of the top things on your list. I know when I shopped for Nathaniel's stroller and car seat, it actually wasn't as easy as I though it would be. Now that my honey and I are on the hunt for a travel set for his sister's baby who is the way, we can't make up our mind on which car seat and stroller we should choose from the CYBEX Gold Line.

Movies and A Free Movie Rental #DataAndAMovie

Going to the movie theater was one of my favorite things to do before becoming Nathaniel's mommy. Now, although I still love movies, I rather do it in the comfort of my home where I can also have my little guy, Nathaniel with me. At the movie theater I can't since have him because he's too young and most likely wont make it through an entire movie without making noise. Not just that, but I don't like going anywhere without him unless I have to. So Being home in my pajamas, eating my favorite coconut cookies while my son plays is priceless.
On a  a recent trip to Walmart, in search for a new phone for my mother, I noticed that the Walmart Family Mobile PLUS plan features Unlimited Talk, Text, & Data including up to 10GB of 4G LTE data PLUS a free movie on VUDU ($7 value) every month per line for $49.88. I knew the plan was perfect! The phone I ended up purchasing is the Alcatel Fierce XL for $99.88 (Rollback from $119.00). The Starter Kits required for the first time are cheaper than before and now on rollback for just 19.88 (Rollback from $25). This will definitely help you save even more on your overall cell phone costs.
Now that my mother is learning all about social media, the10GB of 4G LTE data sure does come at a perfect time for her. Her plan from before provided less GB per month so now she's able to communicate with her family back home for longer using her data. Not only is my mom happy with her data plan and new phone, but I get to enjoy a free family movie night with my honey and we're even able to watch the movie on any of our compatible devices such our Roku Smart TV. I am planning on using the free monthly rental to watch the latest releases. Does your family have movie night? Do you have your family movie night on weekends or weekdays? What's your favorite type of movies to watch?

Medieval Times Buena Park

Have you ever wanted to attend a live medieval times show? If so, you have to visit Medieval Times Dinner and Tournament in Buena Park, Ca. My family and I were there yesterday and we enjoyed the show from beginning to end. Medieval Times is a family-friendly dinner attraction inspired by an 11th century feast and tournament. The show consists of a four-course banquet while cheering for one of six Knights competing in the joust. As we entered the castle, we were greeted and assigned to cheer for the red knight, so we received red crowns. The castle's doors open 75 minutes prior to the show so it was perfect the perfect time to checkout the various gift shops and the horses!

Sobremesa Moments with NESCAFE #MomentoNESCAFE

Working overnight makes it a bit hard to spend time with my honey during the workweek. He usually leaves for work at 7:00 a.m which is when I'm sleeping and he doesn't get home until later in the evening, usually about 2-3 hours before it's my turn to go to work. That's why quality time is quite important for us. Our favorite time is usually after dinner when we create momentos de Sobremesa. You might be asking yourself, what is Sobremesa? Well,  a sobremesa could be a special moment to reconnect with your loved ones usually while sharing a good cup of coffee. I enjoy this time with my honey because after cleaning up dishes and putting the food away, I can actually sit down and talk about our days. Besides a good cup of NESCAFÉ Clásico never hurts!NESCAFE Clasico

Cleaning My Castle #MyPledgeCastle

Whether it’s from a family vacation or a long day at work, I love arriving to my castle, to my home. I guess the saying “there is no place like home” is true. It’s a different sense of relaxation and I am sure you understand exactly what I’m talking about, right? But I have to admit that when my home has not been take care of, it stresses me out. As much as I try, each day, to keep up with it, sometimes it’s difficult with a baby at home and no extra hands. That’s why when my baby naps, which is usually for an hour, I make sure to use the time to get some cleaning done around the house, especially in the kitchen. I am able to do this by using multi-use products from Pledge® that I purchase from Ralphs. Here’s how I do it.

My Baby's Secret Stash #SkincareForBaby

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #SkinCareForBaby #CollectiveBias
I remember the first few days of being out and about with Nathaniel were a bit tough. As much as I always tried to have everything I needed for him with me, I somehow would forget to bring something I didn't think I would need. But the day I realized I had left my house thinking there were diapers in the diaper bag, I felt like the worst mother in the world. Thankfully, I found a diaper in the car that somehow had ended up there. That's when I decided that I had to have an emergency baby kit in my car because I didn't want to go through the same situation again, ever. So in today's post I will show you what I carry in my emergency baby stash that I have in the trunk of my car  because I would hate to be without something that my baby needs during an outing.
