Life Aboard Royal Caribbean’s Liberty of The Seas #SeasTheDay

I FINALLY got all my photos organized from my cruise aboard Royal Caribbean's Liberty of The Seas ship for Brandcation 2014 #SeasTheDay. Since there were just too many photos to share in one long post, I decided to put them all into a video that showcases life aboard the Liberty of The Seas. I also included what to expect on the ship and a brief recap of Brandcation. I hope you enjoy! Have you ever been on a cruise before? What was your favorite part? *This cruise was partially sponsored by Royal Caribbean. All thoughts/opinions are my own. … [Read more...]

16 Insider Tips For Your Next Cruise #SeasTheDay

I've been back from my Royal Caribbean cruise (and extra night in Ft. Lauderdale, FL) for a little over 36 hours. I've been busily (and anxiously) sorting through my photos while trying to spend some much needed time with my family. However, I started writing down things I learned while on the cruise as I was on it, so I thought I would share some insider tips with you while you wait for my photos. Please note that my cruise was part of a collaboration with Royal Caribbean, and though they sponsored it, all thoughts and opinions are my own. This is my second cruise with Royal Caribbean so I thought I knew everything there was to know about them and cruising. Boy was I wrong! I learned so much more on this cruise, both on my own and from the other 39 bloggers I was with. Here are 16 insider tips for cruising (especially with Royal Caribbean): Bonine works much better than Dramamine for sea sickness. My first cruise I got sea sick the first night. I took Bonine once a day and … [Read more...]

Goodbye Brandcation 2014 #SeasTheDay

It's been an awesome but exhausting week aboard Royal Caribbean's Liberty of The Seas for MomDot.com and Brandfluential.com's Brandcation 2014 #SeasTheDay. I can't wait to share the fun with you in a few posts! Be patient as I get my photos in order, answer backed up emails, and spend some much needed time with my family.

I’m Leaving On A Cruise Ship…

For those of you who can't view the video, I nicely typed it out for you :) (Sung to the tune of "I'm Leaving On a Jet Plane") I'm leaving on a cruise ship, I don't want to come back home again...Leaving on a cruise ship, I don't want to come back home again... Hi guys, it's about 6:00 in the morning on Wednesday, April 2nd and in just a few hours I am heading to the airport to take a flight down to Ft. Lauderdale, FL, and tomorrow morning I will be boarding Royal Caribbean's Liberty of The Seas ship so that I can #SeasTheDay with them. I will be joining 39 other bloggers from around the US for MomDot.com and Brandfluential's 6th Brandcation. If you're wondering why I'm vlogging this post instead of writing it out like I usually do, it's because I really wanted to torture you guys with my rendition of "Leaving On a Cruise Ship." No, in all reality it's because I really want to be able to do a little bit of vlogging on this cruise so you guys get a better idea of what it's like … [Read more...]

The Perfect Portable Snack #spon

If you follow me on Twitter or Instagram, you already know that I am a huge fan of GoGosqueeZ. I've posted how my girls are addicted to them and how GoGosqueeZ is the perfect part of a healthy lunch on the go. When I reached out to GoGosqueeZ to see if they would sponsor me for Brandcation #SeasTheDay, I was more than thrilled when they said yes. After all, it's not hard to promote something you love! I first found GoGosqueeZ when I went shopping for healthy things to put in my daughters' lunches. Applesauce in a pouch was perfect because I didn't have to send a spoon with them (that could get lost or thrown away). I compared prices and GoGosqueeZ was the cheapest even compared to the store brand. I then decided to compare the ingredients to some of the competition to see just how healthy this apple sauce really was. On the left in the photo above is a competition's ingredients for their apple-strawberry sauce, on the right is GoGosqueeZ apple-strawberry-banana. Notice … [Read more...]

Two week countdown! #Brandcation #SeasTheDay

Two short weeks from today I will be joining 39 fellow bloggers aboard Royal Caribbean's Liberty of the Seas for Brandfluential's 6th Brandcation, #SeasTheDay! I can not begin to describe my excitement! 5 days, 4 nights of fun and sun without the hubby or the kids, but with people who "get blogging". I can not wait to learn more about being a better blogger and about Royal Caribbean while working on my tan and experiencing all that Liberty of the Seas has to offer. Before I go on, let me disclose two things: 1) Royal Caribbean is sponsoring this cruise for us in exchange for blogging about our experience with them and sharing our adventures via social media while we are on the cruise. Despite this, all thoughts, opinions, experiences/adventures I post will be my own. 2) All photos in this post are credited to Royal Caribbean and are used with their permission. Now that I've disclosed those two things, let's move on... Just look at this ship! Doesn't it look amazing?! At 1,112 … [Read more...]
