Multi-media Favorites

Music

I love music. It relaxes me. It makes me happy.

 

But instead of sharing you ONE song that I’ve been enjoying, I want to share something even BETTER.

 

I have been enjoying Prime Music , which is included with your  Amazon Prime membership.

Basically, Prime Music is a service that allows you to play one of 2 million, ad-free, on-demand songs on your computer, on your Android Tablet, iOS tablet, Android Phone, iOS phone or on your hands-free speakers from Amazon’s Alexa family.  (Just for reference, Amazon’s Echo Dot 2nd generation, has about 4 times as many reviews as the Harry Potter movie with the most reviews.  People are really liking these hands-free speakers).

 

Personally, I use Prime Music on my cell phone, on my computer’s web browser and on my own Wi-fi enabled speakers.

My Lifestyle Favorites For Spring 2017 (Part 1)

Is it just me or has 2017 gone by in a flash?

 

You probably feel it’s gone in a flash, too.

 

So, before any more time slips out of our hands, let me share some of my Spring 2017 Lifestyle Favorites that you can enjoy this Spring and beyond.

 

Some of these links are affiliate links. All opinions are my own, and I share these products with you because I think you’ll REALLY love them.

 

Do You Feel Guilty Just Thinking About Shopping?

Hey, I get it.

 

When you have little ones, what you want to do is buy things for them. Buy what they need, not necessarily what you want.

 

But, let me share a favorite plugin, that will make you feel a little bit better about buying online.

 

Ready?

 

It’s called Ebates.

 

If you haven’t tried Ebates, you’re in for a very special treat. Can I be super honest with you? I had heard several people raving about

Can I be super honest with you? Several years ago, I had heard several people raving about Ebates , but I didn’t sign up. It kept on pushing this task off, thinking that this wasn’t as cool of a plugin as people said it was.

 

But boy, was I wrong! And it potentially cost me hundreds of dollars as a result of not having signed up earlier.

 

Why do I say this?

 

Because within days of signing up, I had earned about $25.56 dollars cash back, given that I had made a few more purchases than usual (you’ll see some of these purchases below).

 

If you sign up for Ebates through this link, you’ll get $10.00 in bonus cash back right away. Pretty sweet, right?

5 Ways To Embrace Your Inner Artist (Part 2) 5.12.17 by Haydee Montemayor from Love and Treasure Blog www.loveandtreasure.com

5 Ways To Embrace Your Inner Artist (Part 2)

In the previous post, we talked about the first 3 out of the 5 ways to embrace your inner artist. Today, we will explore the rest.

 

4) A Pristine, Clean Home Isn’t The Goal

There is a time and place to teach your kids to take care of themselves. But unless paint, glitter, glue or something super hard to clean is being thrown all around, don’t worry too much about the mess that your kid can be making while making art.

 

Two posts ago, I shared that deciding where to make art was important. I also recommended using an art mat to protect your table.

 

But overall, know that you will see glue sticks out, crayons out, artwork on your home surfaces, paint projects drying. It’s normal.

 

It’s common to see this kind of stuff in homes where kids are just being kids, but if you’re homeschooling your kids with the Mother Goose Time Curriculum, expect to see these artistic products and finished projects even more.

10 Reasons You'll Love Mother Goose Time 4.14.17 by Haydee Montemayor from Love and Treasure blog www.loveandtreasure.com

12 Reasons Why You’ll Love Mother Goose Time

In a world filled with too much information and too many products, it’s difficult to choose. So, what do we do? We read reviews, such as those on Amazon and we ask for recommendations from people who are in a similar situation as us.  So if you’re wondering what preschool curriculum you should choose, here are 10 reasons why you’ll love Mother Goose Time.

 

12 Reasons Why You’ll Love Mother Goose Time

 

Reason #1: You Get To Make Your Child A Priority

We have way too many things to fill our day with.

 

It doesn’t matter if you stretch your days horizontally and wake up earlier and go to bed later… you’ll always have more to do.

 

It also doesn’t matter if you stretch your days vertically and work every weekend and weekday, you still probably won’t have enough time to do all that you want to do.

 

So, I have a tip for you that I often have to remind myself of:

"Instead of thinking of the million different reasons why you can't spend more time with your child, make it your #1 daily goal to actually spend time with your child." - Haydee Montemayor from Love and Treasure blog www.loveandtreasure.com

2016 Holiday Gift Guide For The Lady You Love and Treasure

(This email contains affiliate links. Purchasing these holiday gift recommendations using these links will support this me and this site without costing you anything extra. Thank you for your support.)

 

This Christmas is a Christmas in which that special lady in your life needs a little more love and care than usual.

 

It was a tough year.

 

She’s tough. She’s amazing.

 

She deserves the best.

 

She deserves your love, your recognition and honor.

 

But let me warn you. Perhaps your lady prefers that you spend quality time with her in addition to giving her a gift. Or that you say or write a beautiful message to go along with it. Or that you do something nice for her like giving her a much needed break. Or that you hug her, kiss her and squeeze her more throughout this holiday season.

 

If you’re reading these suggestions and have nooooo idea what your lady would like the most…. because after all, you gotta focus on what SHE would like to receive, not on what you would like to receive, check out The 5 Love Languages.

 

Why? Because gift-giving is a language. And you have to make sure that you communicate thoughtfulness, consideration and a genuine interest in trying to please the other person.

 

I start by saying this because, think about it, the lines for returning items don’t get gigantically long starting December 25th because people have been truly tuning into what we want, but rather, because they haven’t. And truth be told, maybe neither have we.

 

So having said this, here are some ideas that can most likely brighten her day… not only on Christmas Day, but throughout the year.

 

Technology

We ladies love our technology. We really do! Some of us may say we’re not tech inclined, but as you’ll see, these gifts prove otherwise.

April 2016 Favorites| The treasures I was Able to Ennjoy This Spring blog post on Love and Treasure by Haydee Montemayor

April 2016 Favorites | The Treasures I Was Able To Enjoy This Spring

Want to know a little secret about me?

 

I see the world as a treasure hunt. I LOVE finding treasures. I like finding things that make me feel like I’ve come across the holy grail of whatever the item is.

For example, if I’m buying myself an eyeshadow palette, I want to make sure that it’s the best eyeshadow palette for me. Not the most expensive one, but the one that I’ll love the most based on a trusty recommendation, my prior experience with the product or on hours of research (and yes, I spend hours of research trying to find the best version of even the simplest item).

Bottom line, I want quality. A pleasurable experience before I buy something, while buying, while receiving it and most importantly in my daily life. It’s not that I think that things should be the bulk of our happiness, but they do influence our quality of life.

So today, I’ll be sharing the treasures I enjoyed using in April in an effort to not keep them a secret and allow you to see if they will be your treasures, too.
