State Farm Driver’s Roadside Preparedness & Winter Drivings Safety Tips

Winter driving is NO joke in Alaska. Between the extreme weather conditions, bad road conditions, and wildlife that sometimes find their way crossing the roads while you’re on them, you can bet that it’s super important to be prepared in the event you find yourself stuck on the side of the road. Not being prepared in some cases can lead to serious consequences, maybe even death because there are certain parts of Alaskawhere you could be stuck off road  in the middle of winter for an unknown determined amount of time before help arrives.  It is essential that all drivers need to put together a trunk safety kit so that if you ever find yourself stranded on the side of the road, you have all the necessary supplies to stay safe until you’re rescued.

State Farm Stranded Car Roadside Emergency Supplies Blessings Abound Mommy

A recent survey by State Farm® and KRC Research found that 2/3rds of drivers (67 percent) had some sort of “junk” (non-emergency supplies) in their trunk ranging from shoes to toys to used food or drink containers. While nearly all drivers (96 percent) had at least one emergency item in their vehicle, such as a spare tire or jumper cables, a mere five percent carried all the emergency roadside equipment, including jumper cables, spare tire, hazard triangle/road flares, flashlight, first aid kid, windshield scraper, water, non-perishable food and a blanket.  Check out the Driver’s Roadside Preparedness Infographic below to read more statistics.

What does a prepared trunk safety kit look like?  It looks much like this picture below.  You can see all the emergency supplies that will be handy in case you are stuck on the side of the road for some time.  I know I myself have some work in this area.  For more State Farm safety tips, you can visit this link to read more.  Thanks to State Farm, one lucky Blessings Abound Mommy reader will be one step closer to having a complete roadside preparedness trunk safety kit.  Enter to win at the bottom of this post!

One of my children’s favorite books is the classic story of The Very Hungry Caterpillar. After 45 years, The Very Hungry Caterpillar is still enjoyed by kids of all ages. This book was also one that I fondly remember as a child.  It’s one of those books that I’m glad has stood the test of time and continues to engage children with the beautifully vivid illustrations and fun, upbeat story line. I love wholesome books that keeps my kids entertained and helps feed that hunger to read.  The Very Hungry Caterpillar has done just that in our household and I’m so pleased that it remains a popular book for kids so that future generations can enjoy this wonderful children’s book too!

Ricola Call In Well Blessings Abound Mommy

Ricola “Call In Well” Campaign

The cold and flu season is still here and even as a stay at home, homeschooling mom, I can’t take sick days. Raising my kids and managing our household is a full time job with no days off so I take all sorts of measures to stay well. My husband, who is the breadwinner, also can’t afford any sick days as he works hard to meet our family of eight’s needs and I stay diligent in making sure that we’re doing all we can to ensure he’s healthy during this time of year too.

That’s why I think it’s great that Ricola started their “Call In Well” campaign to remind everyone that there are steps you can take to feel better this time of year.  When you’re feeling better, you can go out and enjoy all the great things winter has to offer.  Instead of taking “sick days” we can rejoice and start taking advantage of “well days”.   This is extremely important to our family as we like to work hard and play hard together!  To help celebrate our steps towards “well days”, Ricola has put together a sweet prize package to giveaway.  Enter below for a chance to win!

Review & Giveaway: AT&T LifeProof iPhone 5 Case #ATTalaska

AT&T LifeProof iPhone 5 Case White Gray Review Giveaway Blessings Abound Mommy

About AT&T LifeProof iPhone 5 Case:

It is the thinnest, lightest, strongest all-protective case ever created. LifeProof delivers the waterproof, dirt-proof, snow-proof, and shockproof protection you expect, and so much more.  Every feature has been designed to work seamlessly with your iPhone 5 – touchscreen, camera, buttons, microphones, and speakers. The incredibly low profile adds a mere 1.5 mm to each edge, and the sleek silhouette showcases your iPhone 5′s already legendary design.  The four proofs:

  • Waterproof – submersible to 6.6′ (2m) for up to 30 minutes.
  • Dirt-proof – totally sealed against minute dirt & dust ingress.
  • Snow-proof – fully enclosed to keep out melting snow, sleet, and ice.
  • Shockproof – withstands drop impacts from up to 6.6′ (2m).

Includes case, cleaning cloth, headphone adapter, and headphone jack cover keeper.

AT&T LifeProof iPhone 5 Case Mom Review:

Living in Alaska, no ordinary iPhone case will do.  With all the snow we get and the outdoor activities we participate in, we need a heavy duty case to handle and survive the elements through out activities like ice fishing, hunting, hiking, backpacking into the mountains, etc.  As a mother to many little ones, I also have to protect my phone from their wear and tear when they handle my phone.   That’s what I adore about the LifeProof iPhone 5 Cases that you can get at AT&T.  They really have it all when it comes to protecting your iPhone!

The LifeProof iPhone 5 Case is available in black, white, green, red, and blue.  I opted for a white/gray one and I am just smitten with it!  My husband was too, evidently, as he has claimed it for his own.  No worries, he owes me big time and I will be getting the same case for my own iPhone soon!  I loved how slim the design is so it’s easier to carry around, especially since the iPhone 5 is a little bigger than the 4.  You can tell when you snap on the case, that it’s pretty hardcore in its construction and there’s no way for the ports to get dusty or compromised either.  I have no doubts that any dirt, water, and other harmful substances will be kept out, keeping your iPhone in pristine condition at all times.

One of the features that I’m a big fan on is that it’s also shock proof!!!  How many times have I had damage to my phone between the kids and I accidentally dropping it.  I have all hardwood and tile flooring in my home so a dropped iPhone is not a little thing and has done a lot of damage to my iPhone.  With the LifeProof iPhone 5 Case, that’s one concern I’ll never have to worry about again!  A win for this mama!  I also like that it doesn’t hinder the ability to use my iPhone, whether I’m texting or accessing an App or my by camera.  It truly is a quality case and I believe the best to protect your iPhone 5!

I honestly think this is my favorite iPhone case to date.  I know my husband is equally ecstatic about the LifeProof iPhone 5 Case as well.  As a real estate agent, he uses his iPhone all the time and because it’s so light and slim, it’s extremely convenient to take in and out of his pocket when he’s talking with clients.  He’s pretty high maintenance with his iPhone too and as an extreme outdoorsman, he needed an iPhone case that matches his tenacity to push the limits like he does.  With his iPhone fully encapsulated in the LifeProof iPhone 5 Case, there’s no elements that he will encounter that would pose a risk to his iPhone.  What a great peace of mind that is when you’re out in the middle of nowhere?!

Where To Buy:  The LifeProof iPhone 5 Case is available for $80 at AT&T online or in store.

Styling Kids Fashion With Parigi Group Apple Bottoms Review and Giveaway!

Meet the Company:

For nearly a quarter of a century, Parigi Group’s stable of brands has played a major role and are some of the main contributors in helping to shape and define the children’s fashion apparel market. They represent brands such as PUMA, Apple Bottoms, Akademiks, and LRG.

Through the Mom Trials: As a reviewer for Mom Select, I was able to review an outfit from the Parigi Group.  I could hardly wait to see what they would send me since I knew they offer so many terrific brands for children’s apparel.   They ended up sending me an Apple Bottoms 3 piece hoodie outfit for Patience in a size 3-6 months and it’s as cute as can be!  The outfit included a dark coral short sleeved hoodie, dark coral and turquoise striped short sleeve shirt, and blue jean skort with a dark coral ruffle trim.  The color color combination is eye catching and boast the shades of summer.  Each clothing piece, snap, zipper pull, and button bore the well known Apple Bottoms logo.

The striped shirt features a wide neck with snap buttons on the back so you can slip it over your child’s head easily with no fuss.  There is a pretty floral embroidery with scalloped edges along the neckline and puffed cap sleeves for a trendy, but feminine look.  The matching hoodie also shares the same embroidery along each side of the zipper and Apple Bottoms logo on the back.  The zip up also has two front pouch pockets and stretchy ribbing around the end of the short sleeves.  The shirt and hoodie both are made out of thick, super soft cotton that is very comfortable on baby.  The denim skirt is durable with a soft cotton bloomer underneath.

I’d have to say that the sizing is right on as it fits my 4 month old infant perfectly!  The elastic around the sleeves and bloomers are fitted, but don’t cut into her arms and roly poly legs.  The colors compliment her skin tone and she looks so adorable in this outfit!  She gets plenty of compliments every time she wears this outfit it’s one of my favorite outfits to put on her.  Layers is a must in Alaska and I like that I can layer the zip up hoodie over her shirt when it’s cooler or take the hoodie off when the weather is hotter.  I especially like all the little touches on the outfit that makes it more girly like the ruffles, embroidery, lace trim, and bling of the metallic threading!

Giveaway Time (required entry): A lucky Blessings Abound Mommy will win an Apple Bottoms 3 piece Hoodie Set in a size 3-6 months!  All you have to do in order to be qualified for a chance to win is to visit the Parigi Group website and leave a comment with which kids clothing brand that they offer is your favorite!

Electrolux Ultimate Banana Split Campaign For A Cause and $25 American Express Gift Card Giveaway!

The Electrolux brand refrigerator and freezer have split up!  You heard that right, they are now standing solo and I think it’s a wonderful thing.  You would not believe how many times I’ve griped about not having enough room in my refrigerator or freezer to store my food and drinks in and I have always thought having them be their own separate appliances  would be more of a benefit to my family of seven.  With separate appliances, there would be more room to organize and keep my food fresh and less trips to the grocery store.  It’s a win all around!

To celebrate the splitting up of the fridge and freezer, Kelly Ripa has partnered with the “Emporer of Ice Cream” Stephen Bruce, the owner and founder of the famous Serendipity 3 in New York City.  They have teamed up in an effort to raise money for the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund through the Electrolux Ultimate Banana Split Campaign.  For every virtual banana split created, Electrolux will donate $1 to the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund as part of its $750,000 commitment to help fight ovarian cancer.   They’ve also sweetened the deal as anyone who builds their own banana split will be automatically entered for a chance to win the daily prize of $50 towards summer treats and the grand prize:  the new Electrolux stand alone refrigerator and freezer!

It only takes a couple minutes to create your banana split of choice and help raise money for the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund.  Serendipity 3 has also included their ultimate banana split recipes on the site to help you get inspired in putting together your cool confections.  Take a look at my own 4th of July inspired virtual banana split above.  It was fun to put together and it made me feel good that I was able to help raise money for a good cause.  You can create your own today and every day at www.kelly-confidential.com!

Giveaway Time (required entry):  A lucky Blessings Abound Mommy reader will win a $25 American Express Gift Card!  All you have to do in order to be qualified for a chance to win is to leave a comment with how you’d put together your dream banana split!
