    The new start of a new year can be exciting for students and parents, but not all families are excited about the associated expenses to a new school year.   According to the education researchers Robert Balfanz and Vaughan Byrnes at Johns Hopkins, children living in poverty are by far the most likely to be chronically absent from school (which is generally defined as missing at least 10 percent of class days each year).These findings of absenteeism are not monitored by the Federal government and students who are absent because of poverty sometimes are overlooked.  Policy makers…

    Amazingly, as I am entering my mid-30s (gasp!), I find that acne is becoming a major issue for me. It’s like I’m reliving my teen years all over again! During a recent business event, a makeup technician that was giving me a mini-makeover told me it could be due to hormones. So, until I’m able to visit a dermatologist and get to the root of the issue, she suggested I try cleaning my face using products with benzoyl peroxide. This turned out to be a timely suggestion as I was just about to start using an AcneFree Clear Skin Treatments product through my participation in the…

    Do you often wonder if kids get any education from using technology when they are out of school?  Most parents assume their kids don’t benefit from the excessive time on their technological devices.  Perhaps there is another side to this argument.   There are benefits of engagement with technology according to Patricia Greenfield, a developmental psychologist at UCLA .  She has studied the relationship between children and technology, she discusses the benefits of engagement with technology.  She addresses that video games are not all evil and they could help with…

    Growing Beyond the Border: How to Utilize Social Media to Reach a Global Market Whether your business offer microfiber towels, handmade lotions or throw pillows, chances are that there is a market for your product anywhere in the world, and that means there will always be room to grow and expand beyond your demographic and into new territories.  While it’s perfectly natural to feel a bit nervous about growing beyond your means, or how to collaborate with a completely different culture– at the end of the day, a great product speaks for itself, regardless of where it’s being sold.

    The outbreak of Ebola depicts the huge  economic  problem of infectious disease—particularly on countries in the developing world, but with affects felt worldwide.   It is safe to say any additional support to fight this disease in developing countries can benefit the rest of the world.  While Ebola in its current form is an unlikely candidate as a serious health threat to Americans or Europeans, other diseases, from AIDS to West Nile virus, are reminders that infections that start or survive in the developing world can become considerable threats to the health of people in wealthier…

  • 5 Tips for a Stress-Free Morning Routine Before School & Work

    Melanie Edwards
    20 Aug 2014 | 11:56 am
    Morning routines can often be hectic when you’ve got school-age children. Depending on your work arrangements and overall household’s schedule, the logistics of the morning can be quite stressful when you factor in all that has to be accomplished in such a short period of time. You may have to get yourself dressed and ready for a day at the office (whether that’s away from or at home), get children dressed and ready for a day at daycare and/or school, drive children to said daycare and/or school, prepare breakfast and school lunches, prepare your own lunch, be sure the kids…
  • 5 Simple Ideas for Giving Your Master Bedroom a Quick Refresh {Video}

    All too often we get caught up in our daily routines, adhering to our schedules, completing our tasks, meeting deadlines, and at the end of the day, the one place we retreat to is our bedroom. Our master bedroom should be a place that helps us relax and dare I say, makes us feel like we’re escaping the monotony that our everyday life can sometimes be. As I look around my master bedroom, it is far from that. It is a hodge podge of the everyday life and daily cycle my husband and I find ourselves living day in and day out – a reminder of wonderful things, indeed, but also a reminder…

    With my daughter heading back to school in just over two weeks and Florida having its sales tax holiday this coming weekend, you can guess that we’ll be doing the bulk of our back to school shopping this weekend! From back to school clothes to back to school supplies, we’ll be taking advantage of local sales to be sure we prepare ahead of time and get ourselves organized prior to the start of the school year. Luckily, stores like Walmart are thinking ahead as well and coordinating their savings events to match up with your shopping habits and various states’ sales tax…

    You might know that I’m a fan of Walmart’s ad match program – particularly here in Florida where I’m lucky to be able to take advantage of Walmart’s BOGO ad match as well! But, a new way to save money at Walmart is coming real soon and through my participation in the Walmart Moms program, I got a sneak peek at their new Savings Catcher feature and I’m excited to share the news with you so you can see how easy it’ll be to save when you shop at Walmart! I tested out Savings Catcher a few times during it’s beta testing, but starting this coming…
