Make Your Mouth Say Yum With Entenmann's Little Bites Mini Chocolate Chip Cookies! #LoveLittleBites +Giveaway

*This is a sponsored post for Entenmann's.  I am receiving a gift card and coupons in exchange for this post.* 

Scarlett and I have the biggest sweet tooth in the family.  My husband Jay enjoys sweets, but I think our love for treats surpasses his by far.  It's very difficult for me to go a day without having some kind of yummy treat, but I've been trying to work on that.  I'll never turn down a brownie, cookie, or even slice of cake.  You can say that chocolate runs through my veins instead of blood.  A warm chocolate chip cookie served with an icy cold glass of milk is just a beautiful thing.

Entenmann's offers over 100 tasty and scrumptious baked goods ranging from America's favorite crumb cakes, donuts, and cookies to danishes and cupcakes.  There's truly a dessert to please anyone's taste buds.  Their chocolate glazed donuts are outstanding and I always grab a box when I'm in the grocery store.  I am sure that everyone has tried at least one item from the Entenmann's line.  

If you're a chocolate fan like I am, you'll be pleased to know that Entenmann's Little Bites have released mini chocolate chip cookies.  Little Bites are known a variety of mini muffins and brownies, but their mini chocolate chip cookies are soft-baked and bursting with real chocolate chips.  Moms will be thrilled to know the cookies contain no high fructose corn syrup.  These mini treats are perfectly sized for little hands to share during lunch or on-the-go.  Throw them in your child's lunchbox or have them waiting for them as an after-school treat.  Wherever they are eaten you can guarantee the cookies will put a smile on someone's face.

I couldn't wait to get my hands on these and try them for myself.  Scarlett and I shared a pack and instantly fell in love with them.  Since the cookies are mini, you can satisfy your sweet tooth in a way that provides less guilt than having a large cookie.  Each pack contains 6 cookies.  She loved how little the cookies were and I thought that they were fantastic.  The cookies would be ideal for a mid-day snack or equally as tasty as an after dinner treat.  They are very light in taste and not overly filling.

Scarlett loves when I put a treat in her lunchbox at preschool especially because I don't do it too often.  She's just like me and would never turn down anything chocolate.  My cookie loving girl will be thrilled when I put a bag of these in her lunchbox for school next week.  It's always a good day when cookies are involved.

You'll have the chance to try these fabulous cookies for yourself as one lucky winner will win a $25 digital Visa gift card as well as Entenmann's coupons.

Leave The Shame of Incontinence Behind

As someone who has had two children, I am very familiar with pelvic floor issues that can be caused from pregnancy.  Did you know that even if you had a c-section you can still suffer from incontinence problems? Pelvic floor muscles can be stretched and damaged after delivery leaving you feeling frustrated and embarrassed.  These pelvic issues can increase with not only age but subsequent births.  It's time to leave the shame behind and know that you're not alone.

Many mothers feel shame and defeat due to issues with incontinence.  I've read so many stories of bladder issues after birth in my pregnancy and birth Facebook groups I'm in- it's much more common than people realize! Some may not be able to do the activities they used to enjoy doing such as running, exercising, or even laughing without experiencing some kind of leakage.  It can be upsetting to feel like you don't have control over your unpredictable bladder whether you suffer from urgency or an overactive bladder.  

It's time to get control over your life and give thanks to Attain which is the only at- home guaranteed FDA cleared solution to bladder leakage.  Attain is more than 90% effective in treating bowel and bladder leakage.  Stop wasting money on pads and diapers that don't solve the issues at hand.  It works by using a patented balloon intravaginally which provides the same resistance as weights do at the gym.  Once you insert and turn it on, the balloon uses bio feedback from your own body to customize your pelvic workout and inflates to make your muscles contract, thereby causing the muscles to work harder and gain more strength.  Many OBGYNS consider Attain a workout for your pelvic floor.  For 10 minutes a day for a few weeks in the comfort of your own home, the device exercises the muscles in your pelvic floor that's responsible for most bladder issues.  No more spending thousands of dollars on pads or diapers-you'll be thrilled to see the difference and be able to do all of the things you used to do without fear of leakage or running to the bathroom.

Just like a new mom who is in the gym trying to get rid of the baby weight, it's equally as important to exercise your pelvic floor to make it as strong as possible. 

Take charge of life and get out there and live it to the fullest.  You only have one life and don't waste it by feeling ashamed of yourself.

Experience Salon Du Chocolat in NYC!

Chocolate is my weakness.  I have no problem avoiding fried foods, fast foods, or even soda.  But chocolate? I cannot resist it if even if I tried! Give me a warm chocolate cookie with a glass of icy cold milk and I'll be your best friend.  Brownies, chocolate cake, or even a slice of chocolate pie sounds like absolute heaven.  Scarlett is turning into a chocoholic herself.  I guess the apple doesn't fall far from the tree, huh? What's your favorite chocolate dessert?

Salon Du Chocolat is coming to New York City one weekend only on November 16th-17th.  This fabulous event originated in Paris 25 years ago and comes to New York with a rich history and whimsical offerings.

If you're a chocolate lover like myself, you'll definitely not want to miss it.  Feast your eyes and sink your teeth into cocoa creations and innovations featuring flavor combinations like nothing you've ever seen before.  The little ones are even considered with a dedicated area for the budding pastry chef with interactive workshops and more.  If you thought that sounded good enough as it is, you're in for more.  A chocolate fashion show is in store as well as stations on how to learn everything on how to make edible art to flavorful breads.  Don't forget to check out the Chocolate Genius who will be sculpting a massive chocolate installation throughout the weekend.

There's truly something for everyone at Salon du Chocolat no matter where you look.  It's the perfect indoor family fun event to take a break from the cold weather with.  Make sure you taste as much chocolate as possible! It will be one event you won't soon forget.
