Obol Review - The Champion Of Breakfast Bowls

(Disclosure: I received the products featured below for the purpose of this review. All opinions are 100% my own.)




Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, on week days it seems like we barely have enough time to eat before heading out the door for school and work. As the only parent in the household, I spend my mornings running around the house, taking care of the kids, dogs, etc. So breakfast for me is a rare treat, however I'll take a big bowl of cheerios any time of the day! 

Soggy cereal is something I am not a fan of. As busy as I am, sadly by the time I get around to finishing my bowl of cheerios it's soggy and I no longer want it. Well, Obol is changing the way we eat cereal, yup, we no longer have to settle for soggy cereal. I was really excited when I heard about Obol and I couldn't wait for my new bowls to arrive!

When I became a mother it changed my life forever, having children was one of the best things that has happened to me. I truly love being the mother of my two children and they have made me a better person all around and I couldn't imagine my life with out them. 

With that being said, I love jewelry or statement pieces that have to do with motherhood - it just pulls on my heart strings when I wear my favorite jewelry. Well now thanks to Pretty Peacock, I have a new and absolutely stunning necklace to wear and hold near and dear to my heart.

Wisdom Panel® 3.0 Canine DNA Test

(Disclosure:  This post is sponsored by Mars Veterinary Wisdom Panel 3.0, however all opinions are 100% my own. Thanks for supporting my blog!)






I don't think there was ever a time in my life when my family didn't own a fur baby. From my very young baby days into my adult years, I've always lived with and loved my four legged family members! We've always taken in rescue dogs and majority of the time had a difficult time determining their breed or history because they were a mixed-breed dog. I was recently introduced to Wisdom Panel® and as an animal lover, I knew I had to find out more about their Canine DNA Test!
