A Refreshing Strawberry Vodka Lemonade Cocktail with Santa Cruz Organic

This post is sponsored by Santa Cruz Organic but the content and opinions expressed here are my own.

Y’all, school has started – at least for the girls… But I am trying to hang on to summer for as long as I can. So today, I wanted to share a quick, delicious and refreshing cocktail recipe made with Santa Cruz Organic Lemonades. A brand that after trying, quickly made it to my list of favorites. I am always trying out new brands, and love stumbling upon those that are made with high quality ingredients. Because Santa Cruz Organic is passionate about offering only the best natural and organic foods, I knew it would make a great ingredient for this cocktail.

When it comes to flavors, Santa Cruz Organic Lemonades offers a variety; like Blueberry, Mango and Strawberry. They also offer a range of other products of equally delicious flavors like Santa Cruz Mango Fruit Spread, Santa Cruz Organic Ginger Juice and Santa Cruz Organic Dark Roasted Creamy Peanut Butter. All of these are made with Certified Organic and Non-GMO ingredients and processes. Which as a consumer offers me with all the peace of mind I could ask for from a brand.

When creating a recipe, I think it’s of high importance to use pure ingredients and this delicious lemonade offers just that. That’s why using Santa Cruz Organic Strawberry Lemonade was a no-brainer; it’s a flavorful ingredient that you feel great about adding in. 😉 Now, let’s get started on the recipe…

Making the Strawberry Vodka Lemonade Cocktail 

For this recipe you will only need two ingredients! That’s right, only two. Why? Because I believe that simple recipes are sometimes the most fun to make and enjoy with others. To make this Strawberry Vodka Lemonade Cocktail, you will need glasses, ice, Santa Cruz Organic Strawberry Lemonade and Vodka of choice. You will make the cocktail by adding a few ice cubes to a glass, then pouring 6-8 oz. of lemonade over the ice and adding about 1.5 oz of Vodka.

Back to School Styles for Girls at Walmart

This post is sponsored by Walmart but the content and opinions expressed here are my own.

I still can’t believe that this year I have both girls in school. 😳 While this means double everything, I knew I’d save by shopping at Walmart! Not only that, but that I’d find the back to school styles they needed to start the year with confidence. It’s one of my favorite places for on-trend fashions, especially for BTS season. Knowing that I can count on finding quality items at affordable prices every time I shop there, also makes me confident about what I’m getting.

One of the items I always shop for either at my local store or online is denim. Because I can always find sizes for both girls and styles that they both love. Nalani goes through these crazy growth spurs and is always outgrowing the jeans that I buy her. Luckily, I can find fashionable jeans like these cute boot cut style jeans for under $10 to keep her closet stocked. This year I was also able to find assorted tees with adorable graphics. This tee is one of my favorite finds since it features the girls’ favorite, reversible sequins!


I’m glad I didn’t hesitate to turn to Walmart for some of our last minute shopping. It has everything kids want and need to go back to school with confidence, at low prices! Besides these stylish outfits, I was also able to pick up some school supplies that the girls were missing. And even a few grab-n-go lunch and snack essentials. It’s honestly the one stop shop no matter how you shop – in-stores or online. And their Free 2-Day Delivery and Next Day Delivery (available in some areas) is also a bonus. It makes it even easier to shop; I ordered everything I needed and got it within days.

You can find all these Walmart back to school styles via LiketoKnow.it. Just make sure to follow me there for all product details!

Back to School Shopping and Trendy Finds at Burkes Outlets

Back to school shopping has to be my favorite thing to do with Nayelli! We’ve been doing BTS shopping for five years now but this year is really special because Nalani is joining us! Yes, I will have two kids in school this time around and I’m experiencing all the feels 😔! She’s going into pre-school and I can hardly believe it. So, to get a head-start on our shopping, we headed to Burkes Outlet! If you remember, I’ve shared my favorite finds from a recent haul here before. And because I found some great deals on my last haul, I knew I had to keep Burkes at the top of my shopping list for back to school season.

I love being able to find on trend styles at affordable prices, this is why I turned to Burkes Outlet to help get their wardrobes ready for the new school year. The best part is being able to conveniently shop both online and in-store. This time we decided to do most of our back to school shopping in store and the girls loved it. It was such a fun experience. This store is relatively new to our area and I couldn’t be more excited to have a Burkes Outlet close by. 😃

Four Back to School Tips for Shopping OshKosh B’gosh + a Giveaway

This post is sponsored by Everywhere Agency on behalf of OshKosh B’gosh;
however, all thoughts and opinions expressed are my own.

When it comes to back to school, shopping for clothes with Nayelli is my favorite activity. I just love seeing how she lights up when she finds a piece that speaks to her style. I know that back to school is more than outfits, so I first shop for supplies, plan meals, etc… That way when all that is done, we can have some real fun shopping for outfits – it’s like a reward for us!

This year we did our shopping at OshKosh B’gosh, where we found many items that matched Nayelli’s personality; from fun graphic tees to cool jeans. While she is very stylish, I always suggest items that I think she will love and guide her on how to wear a single piece different ways. This allows her to feel that she has a say when it comes to her style. She really enjoys putting outfits together and had a lot of fun shopping at OshKosh, because she was able to mix and match pieces to create unique outfits. You can see how she used the same denim skirt and created two different looks.

Hack for a Healthy and Happy School Year

This post has been sponsored by Renew Life® . All thoughts and opinions are my own.

Summer is almost over and our focus is slowly shifting from summer plans to back- to- school planning. While it seems that most of our back- to- school prep is about supplies and outfits, I have made it a mission to think beyond that. For me, it is important to think about my little one’s health, and with Renew Life® products, it is easy to keep little ones healthy and happy for the new school year! Renew Life Kids Daily Boost Probiotic, for instance, is at the top of our back- to- school list this year.

I’ve added this probiotic supplement powder stick to my little one’s morning routine, because it provides everyday support for my little one’s digestive and immune health. By simply giving her one packet per day, I can prepare her for a healthy and strong start for the new school year.

As moms we worry about ingredients, but the Kids Daily Boost is free of gluten and soy. It is very convenient because of its fast-melting powder form. It tastes like fruit punch, which makes it something that my little one looks forward to. It contains 10 billion guaranteed live cultures per serving, so it makes me feel confident about her digestive health.
