My Gym Fitness Gear Brings Healthy Fitness AND Stimulation to Families Worldwide! (Giveaway!)

I was provided with products for My Gym in order to write this review. All opinions are my own, thank you!

My Gym!


Established in 1983, My Gym [named #1 Children’s Fitness Franchise by Entrepreneur Magazine in 2014] is a leading fitness center destination for children with over 325 locations worldwide with over 30 new locations planned for addition in the next 12 months.  

Combining innovative, early physical education/pre-gymnastics classes with state-of-the-art facilities My Gym is set to empower children ages 6 weeks through 10 years by helping them acquire the skills, confidence, and positive self-image needed to become healthy young adults, with age appropriate classes and parties to stimulate and educate throughout...

My My Gym experience!

I have 3 biological children and a step son and if there is anything I have learnt over the years it is that getting up off of their butts, off of the computer and engaging their body [and mind] in other ways can sometimes be all the difference between lazy fun-times with a gadget and learning, having fun and staying active with a little imagination and MY GYM!


Well, My Gym children's fitness accessories are a great way to bring life and fun to activities and I was lucky enough to get the chance to try out some bean bags, rubber rings and a ball from them, which, when combined, makes for a fabulous time. 

I first utilised these as an added party game, where each person would have a team, a ring and a bean bag - there were 2 teams in total and the first person in each team would throw the bean bag, get it to land on the hoop and then run over, collect it and then tag the person behind them. Once all members of a team had finished, the game ended and they were the winners!

This game encourages working as a team, hand-eye coordination, active fitness running to and from the ring and patience. This is a simple, fun game for all and perfect for a party setting! 


Another way to get interactive is with the ball - my youngest 2 children (1.5 and 4 years old) like to hold, throw, catch and balance with the ball as well as trying out some of the activities recommended on the My Gym activity list that was included in our review kit! 

Simple activities like rolling a ball, squeezing the ball, raising and lowering the ball etc are all stimulating and great sensory exercises! 

There are so many things you can do with a child and a bean bag, some rubber rings and a ball, and they can have so much fun and not even realise it until it is over!

Here are some great facts that you may like to know!
  • My Gym launched their new interactive Building Blocks Program to all enrolled children ages 2.5 years and older. The program helps children work toward specific milestones in their physical, cognitive, and emotional development and then celebrates their achievements with stickers, progression ribbons, medals, trophies, graduation certificates and more in periodic Building Blocks Acknowledgement Ceremonies.  
  • The My Gym television show, “My Gym At Home,” airs on BabyFirst, a 24/7 channel focusing on children’s development.

OneDrive makes working on-the-go easy as pie! #LumiaSwitch #LumiaLovelies

I was given a Nokia Lumia to try out as part of the Lumia Switch! All views are my own and your views and/or experiences may differ! Thank you!

As some of you may have noticed, I have recently switched my phone over to a Nokie Lumia 830 as part of the #LumiaSwitch, which you can follow on Twitter and other social media. 

So far I absolutely love the phone, which comes with windows and is incredibly easy to navigate, but even more so when I realised just how useful the OneDrive is! 

Instead of worrying about wires, or fiddling with SD cards, I just upload pictures or documents from the phone and place them straight on the OneDrive and then have access to them wherever I am, which not only gives me smooth access but frees up space on my devices as I am no longer hording photos or documents on my main machine/s!

Working on my blog, for instance, I have a post coming this week for a hair care product and it was so simple to take the photo on my Nokie Lumia, upload it to the OneDrive, edit it in a program on my Chromebook after accessing it through said OneDrive and then uploading it right back to One Drive to access on my phone to be able to share with social media on the go, or to upload straight to blogger or wherever it needs to go - easy! 

Here is my OneDrive with my original photo, uploaded from the phone, then downloaded to my computer, edited then uploaded right back to OneDrive and ready for use anywhere!



My set-up is almost wire-free these days and the OneDrive is certainly a big part of that for me! Definitely a big plus when I am on the go and working on something at the same time! 

Check out the Lumia buzz on Twitter with the hashtags #LumiaSwitch and #LumiaLovelies and get in the know! 

Let me know if you already have a Lumia and tell me what you think! I'd love to hear from you!

Unilever loves peanut butter so much that they've mixed it with your favorite ice creams!

I was provided with products in return for this review. 
All opinions are my own and your views may differ - thank you! 


In honor of Peanut Butter Lover's Day, which was this past weekend, we were invited to try some products that oozed peanut butter goodness! 

Products like: 

-          Good Humor Reese’s Peanut Butter Ice Cream Cup
peanutbutter ice cream with a Reese's Peanut Butter swirl dipped in a milk chocolate-flavored coating.
-          Klondike Reese’s Bar: Reese's peanut butter cups joins forces with Klondike for one delicious treat.
-          Breyers Blasts! Reese’s Chocolate: This treat features real Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups blasted into Breyers creamy chocolate ice cream.  For an extra blast of rich peanut butter flavor, Breyers added in a peanut butter swirl.

I couldn't find the Peanut Butter Ice Cream Cups, most likely because they're so popular already, but I did get my hands on some Klondike bars, Breyer's ice cream AND Magnum bars, which happen to be my favorite all-time ice cream bar anyway and so what better treat than to mesh it with peanut butter, peanut butter sauce AND Belgian chocolate!! Oh gosh! 

I want everyone to extend their love of peanut butter and turn it into a week-long (or anytime) treat and indulge a little with just about all the goodness you could ask for from each of these cold goodies!


My children loved the ice cream the most, Breyer's is one of the family favorites, but anything with peanut butter just screams: "YES!" - whole peanut butter cups is just heaven in a tub and I put some crackly ice cream syrup on the top to finish it off and everyone wanted more! 

My son, who is 18 and always on-the-go seemed to prefer the Klondike bars more as he could just pick it up and carry on with whatever he was doing at the time, and he always wanted to come back for more, and so I know they were a huge hit, too! 

Whoever thought to mix peanut butter in with these all must really have been reading my mind! I can't get enough and I know you can't either!! 

Why not head on down to your local stores today? I found ours in Giant, but you will find them in a wide variety of stores nationwide! 

I know we will be buying more, and our love of peanut butter is going to be a year-round celebration, so join us and tell us what you've found - and where you found them!

Ice cream all the way! 

Enjoy!
