Last summer, the Bronx Zoo introduced their interactive exhibit Dinosaur Safari. It was revamped and redesigned this year for opening day April 12th and will be open until Labor Day, September 1st

Bronx Zoo Dinosaur Safari Mysteries Revealed

My four kidlets and I headed there to see what was new! We boarded a wagon driven through a two acre area of the Bronx Zoo home to over 30 animatronic dinosaurs.

While on the safari, visitors learn how scientists create how dinosaurs looked, sounded and acted just from what they learn from fossils.

The “Paleontologist” narrator of the tour deputized everyone on the tour and shared clues and facts about dinosaurs ranging from Allosaurus to Stegosaurus (new this year!). We were also able to see various scenarios that could have occured in prehistoric times.

When the ride was over, everyone went to the Dinosaur Safari Field Site where they were able to dig, control an animatronic dinosaur, learn about  parts of a teenage sized T-Rex and take a photo on a Pachyrhinosaurus.

Spring Break with Kleenex

Kleenex Disclosure

I’m up late at night watching everything taped on my DVR and I’ll admit to a Netflix binge at times. Sometimes there are pretty emotional episodes. I will admit to reaching for a Kleenex tissue.

But with spring break coming up (finally!!) there will be less tearjerker movies being watched and more time spent outdoors exploring the city with my children and visiting friends.

I can’t tell you how happy I will be to turn off the alarm and enjoy some quality time with my kiddos that isn’t stuffed into the few minutes afterschool when they are done with homework but before bedtime after dinner. I have a list of places I want to take my four kidlets. Each of these places are going to mean we spend little time at home and more time on the go.

Kleenex Slim Packs #kleenexstyle

I’m outfitting each of my four children with a slim pack of Kleenex brand tissues to make sure. I’m going to bring them with me to the playground while my toddler has his warmer weather playdates.  In my daughter’s overnight bag when she has a sleepover at her friend’s house. And in my coat pocket while I’m running out the door to run errands.

Hello spring! Thanks for finally joining us! And thanks to Kleenex for helping us while we enjoy spring fever!

Beautiful Confidence with Bliss

Bliss Fat Girl Slim Lean Machine Disclosure

When people ask you “What’s your best feature?” I always answer “my legs”. Seriously.

I don’t know what it is but they have never failed me. My hair could be having a bad day, my arms could need some toning but time after time, my legs truly show up and show off for me.

Which is why it’s probably strange to say they are also the part of me that I think needs some help. But only during the summer.

Bliss Spa Fat Girl Slim Lean Machine

The back of my legs at the top have cellulite. Sure if I actually went to the gym and worked out this wouldn’t even be a conversation but we all know how I feel about that.

So instead during bathing suit season, I put on my swimsuit and go… to the pool, to the beach, to the lake.  Deep down, I do have a little less confidence about my legs when wearing a swim suit. So when I heard about the Bliss Fat Girl Slim Lean Machine  (sold at Sephora) I figured it wouldn’t hurt to try it.

The Bliss Fat Girl Slim Lean Machine has a vacuum massager (a mild suction and vaccuum feeling) and works along with the FatGirlSlim cream. And when used over time, it has clinically been proven to reduce the appearance of cellulite where 75% of women said their leg looked smoother! Hello!

There’s no way I’m missing out on the beach this summmer (especially after the winter we had!) but if the appearance of the back of my leg could be improved a bit, I’d love it!
