Go To #WarWithGrandpa This October

101 Studios and Brookdale Studios have released the official trailer and poster for their upcoming family comedy The War With Grandpa, which will be in theaters on October 9th, 2020!

Sixth-grader Peter (Oakes Fegley) is pretty much your average kid - he likes gaming, hanging with his friends, and his beloved pair of Air Jordans. But when his recently widowed grandfather, Ed (Robert De Niro), moves in with Peter's family, the boy is forced to give up his most prized possession of all, his bedroom. Unwilling to let such an injustice stand, Peter devises a series of increasingly elaborate pranks to drive out the interloper, but Grandpa Ed won't go without a fight. Soon, the friendly combatants are engaged in an all-out war with side-splitting consequences. Based on the award-winning book by Robert Kimmel Smith, The War With Grandpa is a hilarious family comedy featuring an all-star supporting cast: Christopher Walken, Uma Thurman, Rob Riggle, Cheech Marin, Laura Marano, and Jane Seymour.

The Hermoza #Summer2020

There is still summer left! And August is famously the hottest month in Minnesota. We are going away on a small family camping trip, and I need a new bathing suit. Good thing I found The Hermoza in time. The Hermoza makes beautiful and functional swimwear that exudes confidence and makes women feel their best. I received a one piece, and an awesome coverup.
The luxurious Alina dress is an easy-breezy style, perfect for any occasion. Made from supple swimwear fabric, this cover-up can handle a few splashes from the pool or sea; all the while quick-drying like your Hermoza swimsuit. A travel friendly go-to piece, with low to no wrinkles. All prints are originally concepted and designed by The Hermoza team. Design details: Adjustable, center front tie waist. Flowy flutter sleeves. V-cut neckline with self-covered buttons, for elegant detail. Bodice is double lined, for opaque coverage. This is gorgeous and very comfy. I wore this to work with some leggings. Shhh. No one knew it was swim coverup. That is how high quality this item is! I love it!
The classic body and style of the Cecilia is reminiscent of summer holidays and long afternoons spent luxuriously sunbathing. With a subtly feminine, yet flirty bow on the back above a refined mid-back cutout, the Cecilia offers flawless coverage with bold sophistication. This is southern class meets Latin sophistication. Design details:  Adjustable Straps. Adjustable Bow in the back. Fully lined. Removable moldable cups. I am not showing you how I look in a bathing because no one wants to see that, but having said that - I felt confident at the beach, and cute. This is full coverage, even with the back cut out. You won't show any bits or pieces that you don't want to. I love the Gingham pattern. This is such a cute suit that I think I will wear it and then throw some shorts on, and it will make for a cute outfit. Add a sarong or a coverup, and you're set!

Plantshed NYC

Do you ever see those gorgeous homes on TV and think, gee, I would love to have a garden like that, or I would love to have plants like that in the yard? Well, now you can. By your own design, or from the expertise of the folks at Plantshed, Prince Street Location. Plants and flowers are their thing. They can help you decide what is good for your atmosphere. Or if you have an event, be it a wedding, or a corporate event, or some other private event that you need floral arrangements for, they can do that, too. You can go visit them in NYC and lounge in their little cafe while taking in the beauty of their shop as it surrounds you. Be sure to pick up some gifts while there, such as candles, lotions, candies! They have something for every occasion. So if you stop in to buy some birthday flowers, grab a gift to go with it!
Or, in this day and age, they have virtual shopping and planning, which you can do from the comfort of your own home, which I know a lot of people prefer than having to go out in public, and masks, and the whole thing! The consultant will help you live by checking out the space you show them and together you can create a beautiful decor, with plants and flowers. It is all about natural things these days, and what better natural things to have around you than gorgeous flowers and unique plants?

Three Jerks Jerky #BTS2020

I love beef jerky. It is the perfect, easy, go-to snack. And for all the carb conscious and Keto folks out there, it is low carb, generally 2-3 carbs per serving. Um, score!! So when I heard about Three Jerks Jerky, I was intrigued.
The folks at Three Jerks Jerky are friends, occasional jerks, and passionate foodies - as they say on their page. Above all else, they love beef jerky. Yearning for the highest quality, purest, and most delicious jerky, they set out to craft the finest meat snack ever created. They’ve spent countless hours experimenting with various cuts of meat and different flavors in pursuit of this holy grail of a snack. The result is - filet mignon, dazzling flavors, and only real ingredients (no nitrates, no gluten, no preservatives) create incomparable beef jerky.
The Filet Mignon Jerky  comes in Original, Chipotle Adobo, Memphis BBQ, Hamburger, Maple Bourbon, and Veri Veri Teriyaki. The Grass Fed flavors are Memphis BBQ, Teriyaki, and Original. I like the original the best. Jason chowed the Memphis and then said his nose running! Spicy, in a good way. Callan liked the sweeter jerkies like the Maple Bourbon and the Chipotle Adobo. Really good snack! Better than chips, and if Callan will eat it, then all the better! A good protein source too for those school lunches or an afternoon snack while doing homework!

Hydrate And #DrinkCirkul #BTS2020

Cirkul's innovative bottle allows you to flavor your water sip by sip. Go from drinking plain water, to drinking your new favorite beverage, and back to drinking plain water with a turn of the flavor dial.

I am trying to lose weight, and part of that is being healthy and drinking more water. Plus, weight loss or not, drinking water is good for your overall health. And it is a good thing to start the kids young and make it a habit to drink water. But my issue is that plain old water can just get blah. And I am sure kids think that too. So, Cirkul makes it fun! 
The bottles are unique, and there are soooo many to choose from. You can even customize your own creation! Once you have your style all picked out, then you can choose your sips. Sips are the flavored tubes (as Callan calls them) that you can choose. And the dial on the drink cap lets you choose just water, or the level of flavor blast you get with each sip. I liked a 3 while Callan - after he stole my bottle - enjoyed a 6. The higher the dial, the stronger the flavor.
There are a ton of flavors and different packs to choose from. LifeSip, FitSip, GosSip, ha ha. A lot. For each and every taste. I can almost guarantee that your whole tribe will find something they all like - with the bottle style to the flavor sip. And you really do want to get one for everyone, or else yours will get stolen like mine did!
Cirkul is great for back to school too, because it will literally replace all soda and juice. And there is not a limit they can have!! It is water afterall!

Check it all out at Cirkul on Facebook, as well as Cirkul on Twitter, and Cirkul on Instagram.

Ice Shaker #BTS2020

Ditch your old smelly plastic shakers and say hello to the kitchen grade, non-odor absorbing, stainless steel Ice Shaker bottle. Ice Shaker's sturdy leak proof BPA-free pop top is easy to open while still being secure enough to close and shake. The Ice Shaker's 26oz double wall vacuum insulated bottle will hold ice for over 30 hours in a 75 degree room when filled with just ice, the 16oz Ice Shaker cup will keep your drink cold for 24 hours, and the 36oz will hold ice for well over 40 hours! The Ice Shaker features a removable twist in agitator for more mixing power, a sturdy handle for easy carrying, and fill lines inside the bottle for measuring.

I was immediately intrigued by the Buy a Bottle Give a Bottle Program, which supports the military. Anything that supports are brothers and sisters in arms, we are for in this house! Hooah! Each quarter, Ice Shaker and OSD release two exclusive and limited run designs. These designs are only available during the quarter released and will not be made available again. For each of these limited bottles sold, an additional bottle will be donated to OSD for use within their Supply Drop program for troops deployed overseas. Show your support for our Nation's heroes while also owning the best bottle on Earth. Check it out.
I got the 26oz Navy and Mint ombre tumbler. Ombre bottles are painted using a unique process. Because of this, no two bottles look exactly the same. Features: •Shaker Lid: Easy to hold carrying handle, easy open pop top and comes with a removable agitator that twists into the lid - The shaker lid blends protein powder with ease. •Premium Quality Double Wall Vacuum Insulated Protein Shaker Bottle that will keep your drink hot for up to 12 hours or cold for 30+ hours. •Kitchen grade premium stainless steel cup that does not absorb odor. No more smelly plastic shaker bottles! Odor resistant metal cup makes it perfect for pre workout, juices, protein powder shakes, BCAAs, coffee, smoothies, martinis, cocktails, ice tea, and water. •Sweat proof bottle, no more wet cold hands and sweat rings all over your tables. The double wall vacuum insulated bottle prevents condensation from building up on the bottle by preventing cold or heat from transferring to the outside of the bottle. •Tapered bottle design that is easy to fill with measurement markings inside the bottle and fits all standard size cup holders. Bring your portable Ice Shaker cup to the gym, office, pool, beach, camping, hunting, fishing, tailgating, yoga, biking, road trips, hiking, sports games, everywhere!

My thoughts were to get this for the kiddo for school. They are allowed to have water bottles in class to keep them hydrated. They even have nifty water bottle filling stations in place of some water fountains, that are touchless, which these days, ahem ahem! There are different sizes and styles of the Ice Shaker, so you are sure to be able to tailor a shaker to each person in your family!
