PostHeaderIcon Beat Holiday Migraines with Excedrin and $100 Amex Gift Card #Giveaway

Take a Holiday from Headaches Excedrin
With Thanksgiving gone and Christmas quickly approaching, there is no doubt that most people are at their wits end. Between holiday parties and getting shopping done, stress levels are on the rise. We all love the food, the lights and the look on the young ones faces on Christmas morning. The not so glorious part, is that sometimes what we love so much about the wonderful holidays, are the things that can trigger our migraines or headaches.

PostHeaderIcon Help Your School Excel with Excedrin #Giveaway

It’s that time again, back to school! I know some of you have children that haven’t started back yet but, most of us have.  According to a recent survey by the makers of Excedrin®, 69% of parents, who have at least one child in school this school year, say they are excited for their child’s first day of school. We all know it is so we can get back to a routine and have some quiet time! That doesn’t change the fact that 44% of parents also say they expect to get a headache during the back to school season.

Between school supplies, new clothes and for me, learning about a new school, it can be very overwhelming.  According to a recent survey by the makers of Excedrin®, more than one-third of parents see getting themselves (41%) and their children (43%) back on a schedule at the top of the list of things that might cause their headaches during the back to school season.   In addition, more than one-third (35%) of parents say shopping for school supplies might give them a headache.  With all the pencils, folders and notebooks, parents should remember to put Excedrin® on their back to school shopping list.

Every year I am amazed buy the school supply list. I remember when all you needed was a backpack. The schools supplied everything else. Even though I bought everything on both the boys lists, they are still coming home with notes for additional supplies. Now that Royal is in Junior High this year, it’s just crazy. multiple teachers, multiple rules and more supplies than usual. Shopping was definitely at the top of my headache list this year. I think the $60 one strap backpack that Royal wanted this year was the biggest headache but, he’s happy so I’m happy.

PostHeaderIcon June is National Migraine Month #Giveaway


With June being National Migraine Awareness month, I think it is important for people to really gain some extra knowledge about what they might be going through when it comes to dealing with a migraine. I was asked to write about this topic but I personally am a loyal Excedrin Migraine user! As a single Mom of two boys, I understand that migraines happen when you least expect them. In my case, I have to keep moving. Make meals, wash dishes, do laundry. Kids don’t stop because Mom doesn’t feel well.

Maybe you don’t know where to start.  Excedrin has a new app, which I have told you about before, called My Migraine Triggers™. Over the last six months it has helped many manage their migraines better.. The My Migraine Triggers™ iPhone app, developed by the makers of Excedrin® allows me to track the causes of my migraines, including food.   It then gathers this data into reports and charts that can easily be shared with my doctor. read the rest of this entry »

PostHeaderIcon Make Your Kids Want To Learn By Making It Fun

I am always looking for new ways for the boys to be online in a way that is both fun and educating. Like most kids, if they think it’s boring work, they have no interest! I received an email about a website called Cwist. Here is a little bit about it. And yes FTC, I was paid to do so, however, I am recommending this site because after having the boys use it, I truly think it is a great educational tool!

Cwist is the only digital platform to harness the creative power of both parents and educators to develop, test and share hundreds of challenges that educate the whole child.

Crowd-sourced from parents, educators, mom bloggers and experts, cwist features an interactive library of educational, community service, outdoor and unique challenges or “cwists” for kids ages 5-10, AND helps them to make a healthy connection between the things they want and the effort it takes to get them.

While a great resource and community for parents, cwist is also a great way to see what your kids are wishing for and giving them a way to earn it. Partner companies, like Imagine Toys, Edmund Scientific and others, make it easy for kids to select rewards they really want. And if it’s not on cwist, kids can chose to enter their own unique reward.

The cwists can be anything from organizing a community clean-up, researching fun facts for upcoming family trips or simply finishing chores every day on time. Kids choose parent-approved rewards which can range from a sleepover, day trip, toy or gadget they have wanted or something completely unique and original. read the rest of this entry »
