Have a FUN Summer with Peeps – #PEEPSONALITY – Check out the AWESOME new Peeps Products and Peeps Minis!

Thank you Peeps and Company for sponsoring this review/post

Growing up I have always loved Peeps, and looked forward to the holidays where you could find them in store.  As I have gotten older I have enjoyed the fact that you can almost get Peeps all the time!  To make it even better they have a fun and exciting #PEEPSONALITY to make your summer awesome!  I received an amazing good box of #PEEPSONALITY  items.

Peep 1

This goodie box included some of the delicious new Peeps Minis in Sour Watermelon (my FAVORITE), Strawberry Cream (my daughters favorite), Chocolate (everyone LOVED this one), we also received the SIGNATURE PEEPS BEACH TOWEL  (currently on sale for $14.99 and is SUPER soft), PEEPS® Signature Tote (which is $19.99 and GREAT for the beach, taking snacks to the park, and a fun summer purse), an adorable Peeps® Pail, (which is great for little toys, markers and more my daughter has loved this, its only $3.99 and would be cute to pick up now for Easter), we also received a Signature Tumbler which is $9.99 on their website, great for the little ones (or to keep for yourself),  and you cant forget the DIE CUT FLEXIBLE PEEPS KEYCHAIN that are $4.99 and super cute.  Would be great on a backpack, purse or beach bag.

Overall their summer collection blew me away. They have some FUN and FESTIVE high quality items to bring Peeps into your every day life, or atleast your summer fun!  Overall I really enjoyed the Sour Watermelon Peeps Minis, they are YUMMY, have the texture of a typical Peep, small yet full of flavor.  My daughter LOVED the Strawberry Crème one.

Peep 4
When you first open the resealable bags the smell is beyond amazing.  It took everything I had to not eat the entire bag once I smelled how YUMMY they smelled! They are a GREAT size to be able to have one or two and not feel bad. They are also great to take along with you.  We took them with us on our road trip two weekends ago, and it helped when we just wanted a little something sweet!  They are one of those “treats” that would be great to have on hand.  Plus with the fun colors, they would make a great addition to your next party.

Peep 2
Our entire family LOVED the Chocolate Crème, this one is YUMMY and really has a GREAT Chocolate flavor.  I can’t wait to get another bag of these and try out some fun recipes.  I think they would be great for cupcakes, cakes and other sweet yummy treats.

Overall I am even more in love with Peeps as a brand. They have some amazing sweet treats to enjoy, and fun Peep themed products that you can have around all the time and remember the fun of Peeps and you #Peepsonality!

Check out the Grazia® Silicone 24 Cup MINI Muffin Pan – Great for bakers!

41BDjOEYuZLThank you Grazia® for sponsoring this review/post

My daughter and I love to bake together and try out new recipes. One of our favorite things to make are cupcakes.  So when given an opportunity to check out and review the Grazia® Silicone 24 Cup MINI Muffin Pan I knew that I wanted to try it out!  When it arrived I was surprised at how nice, sturdy and well made it was.  I have tried other Silicone products in the base for backing and this is by far one of the best!


The Grazia® Silicone 24 Cup MINI Muffin Pan is a non-stick food grade silicone muffin/cupcake baking pan that is extremely easy to clean, safe to use in the oven, microwave, dishwasher, or freezer.

Grazia Pan 1

One thing that my daughter and I can’t wait to try in it is to use it for Christmas Candies.  Nothing ever seems to work to keep the mess down, and create yummy treats. But this being heat resistant for up to 450°F, yet can go in the fridge and freezer without a problem will be PERFECT!

Grazia Pan 2

One thing that I was very impressed with is that it has FDA Approval!  In addition it meet the European standards as well.  This company really went above and beyond to make sure that they have a superior product that will be used and enjoyed!

Grazia Pan 3
This product is Manufactured in Socially Compliant Facility. Overall I am very pleased with the pan. It was easy to clean, I love that I am able to put it in the dishwasher and it comes out looking great.  A great recipe that you can try in this pan is our Cherry Almond Brownie Bites Recipe, which that recipe can be found HERE.  Another amazing recipe and this pan would make the perfect size is the Cream Cheese Banana Nut Muffins, that recipe can be found HERE.

This pan is currently $14.89 on Amazon – Click HERE to purchase your Grazia Silicone Muffin Pan, Red, 24-Cup, it is also available in 12-Cup size for $14.88

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

Ideas for Taking the Family Out Cheaper

Family Out

A day out with the family soon causes the expenses to mount up. Of course, they don’t have to an easily turn into an expensive task but there are a number of ways to reduce costs. No matter where you live there should be a host of low-cost activities that the entire family can enjoy. Combine this with the following simple money-saving methods and you can have a day out that won’t feel as if you’re being plunged into poverty.


Check out the free children’s tickets

Most of the major cities, especially the popular tourist destinations, will offer free or reduced entry fees for children. For instance, San Francisco’s amazing Aquarium of the Bay offers free entrance for children aged three and under. If you’re planning on visiting this type of attraction then make sure to book online: discounts are often available with this purchasing method. Also remember to check family rates when purchasing tickets. They can be significantly less expensive than individual tickets.


Free activities for the entire family

There are lots of fun activities that either require very little money or are completely free. During the warm months it’s always a great idea to head to the local beaches and parks for some fresh air and exercise. Both of these locations will also offer rental equipment for activities such as cycling, kayaking, canoeing and surfing. Remember to take a picnic to save on purchasing food from the restaurants and snack bars. Where there are tourists there are also high prices!


Exploring culture and history

One of the other ideas for a family day out is to visit the museums and activity centers around your city. Children love exploring and viewing historical relics and artifacts but museums aren’t just about history. A variety of different museums are available including transportation, art, film, music and science. Although some will charge an entrance fee there should be local venues that will be complete free with a voluntary donation facility.


Remember the free days

Throughout the month you can often find specific days where entrance will be free to popular attractions. Take the Museum of Science and Industry, which offers free admission on specific days during certain months. In some cases these days will be available only for state residents. It’s not just museums, though. There are plenty of attractions and venues offering free admission days either for the entire family or for just for the kids.

Remember to keep an eye out for special events throughout the year such as local festivals. Also remember to check online discount websites where you can obtain vouchers for money off many local attractions and activity centers.
