SCOTTIES® Facial Tissues :: Cough and Cold Survival Pack and Giveaway

CCCpack

This spring, you can protect yourself and your family by using SCOTTIES® Facial Tissues and taking their advice on how to avoid the common cold and flu.

SCOTTIES® is a soft and affordable way to help you fight through a stubborn cold with their cubes, regular packs, and even bigger family sizes in their new, updated packaging!

 

Their goal is to keep your family well this season by offering these tips to stay healthy:

  • Wash your hands, and wash them often, especially after being out in public. Whether you’re at school, work, or the grocery store, cleanliness is super important!
  • Pick up after yourself, by not leaving dirty tissues around. When someone in my family is sick, they carry around a shopping bag. That’s where all the used tissues go, and no one else has to touch them.
  • Relax, just chill. Stress can make you more prone to colds and the flu, so worrying just isn’t worth it.
  • Simple- avoid sick people. If you have a classmate or co-worker that’s ill, sit on the other side of the room. It’s not personal. It’s germs.
  • Keep SCOTTIES®  throughout your home. I make sure I’m always stocked up, whether it be at my desk, bedrooms, or bathrooms, facial tissues are always available. Don’t use your sleeves!
  • Stay well rested by getting a good night’s sleep. My family and I try to go to bed 15-30 minutes earlier when someone is under the weather. Our bodies don’t notice the extra time when laying down, but they sure do when we wake up! We’re much more rested this way.
  • Exercise! Get out, get up and move. Take a quick walk around the block or do some laps in your office. You’ll be thankful for the break and extra energy. Plus it boots your mood and clears your head. What more could you want?
  • Get vaccinated. Not up for debate, it’s proven it works time and time again. My family and I always get our flu shots, we’re just not willing to take the risk of catching whatever’s out there!

Last month I was given the opportunity to host a Villain-Themed DisneySide party for my daughter’s girl scout troop. We had such a great time. With all the tools thanks to MomSelect and Disney, we were able to pull off a great party for each girl to show their DisneySide!

DSBoxOpen

The box came with so many goodies- from Twinnings Tea, Duff Goldman cakes, All, Disney (with puzzles, games, and trivia), My Image Bracelet Maker, and more! Opening it was like Christmas morning, I knew the girls would love all of it.

We started out the night with some villainous cupcakes that were totally delicious and devoured in seconds:

The girls had such a fun time. We used our party as a way to build team-work. We divided the girls into two groups- so they could visit “stations” to solve trivia, build puzzles, and help each other make bracelets.

DSParty

They all worked together and shared stories about their trips to Disney World and Disneyland. We had such a fun night, thanks to everyone who came and Disney who made it all possible! You can have your very own DisneySide at home celebration by visiting this link for tips, tricks, recipes, and games!

Frozen, the movie sensation that’s literally caught the world by storm, is finally getting a sequel! Just announced: Frozen 2 is officially in development at Walt Disney Animation Studios with directors Chris Buck and Jennifer Lee and producer Peter Del Vecho, the Oscar®-winning filmmaking team behind Frozen.

The news was announced at Disney’s Annual Meeting of Shareholders this morning by Bob Iger, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of The Walt Disney Company; John Lasseter, Chief Creative Officer of Walt Disney and Pixar Animation Studios; and actor Josh Gad, who provides the voice of Olaf from Frozen.

“We enjoyed making Frozen Fever so much and being back in that world with those characters,” said John Lasseter. “Jennifer Lee and Chris Buck have come up with a great idea for a sequel and you will be hearing a lot more about it and we’re taking you back to Arendelle. We are so excited about that.”

A release date and production details are yet to be announced, but as soon as they are, I’ll be sharing here on my blog.
