You're sure to find the perfect holiday gift for the Pokémon fans on your list.

I stopped by my local store last week, and the Pokémon Center was already overflowing with gift ideas. My 9-year-old is a seriously HUGE Pokémon fan, so I was able to check a few gifts off my list... It's so nice to feel like I'm ahead of the game for once@

Win the Stanley Steemer Service of Your Choice!

by Tara Kuczykowski on July 28, 2017 · 0 comments

We recently had our carpet and air ducts cleaned by Stanley Steemer in the hopes of reducing allergens in our home. Did you even know that Stanley Steemer offers air duct cleaning? I honestly had no idea!

I chronicled the experience over on Unsophisticook, and I thought some of you might be interested in it. It was actually a fascinating process, and you won't believe what they pulled out of our air ducts!

Check it out here, and while you're there, be sure to enter to win a $400 Stanley Steemer gift card to put toward the service of your choice.

Thanks to Disney-Hyperion for sending me a copy of Vampirina at the Beach and for providing a prize pack!

I miss the days of paging through a colorful picture book every evening with my girls. With its gorgeous colorful illustrations and spunky main character, Vampirina at the Beach is exactly the sort of book that would have been in our regular rotation...

When the summer moon is full, a beach trip is an epic way to spend the night.

With her signature poise, Vampirina and her clan gear up for a festive time at the beach. Keeping her ballet lessons in mind, Vampirina demi-pliés on a surfboard, leaps for a volleyball, and finishes each competition with style, even if she doesn't always come out on top. Vampirina At The Beach (Vampirina Ballerina Series) was just recently released and is perfect for enjoying with your 2-6 year old!

Thank you to HarperChildrens for sending me copies of Stick Cat: A Tail of Two Kitties and Olga and the Smelly Thing from Nowhere and providing the prize pack!

Being an avid reader myself, I've been on a mission to raise readers since even before my oldest was born. That doesn't mean it's been smooth sailing. It's taken some coaxing, and even medical intervention for one struggling child.

Find reading material that's the appropriate reading level and engaging can be difficult, which is why I've always loved books like Stick Cat: A Tail of Two Kitties and Olga and the Smelly Thing from Nowhere. They're perfect for that in between stage where picture books are a breeze but chapter books filled with page after page of solid text are overwhelming. My 9 year old was thrilled when I handed him the Stick Cat book -- he's a big fan of the Stick Dog series. And my 10 year old sped through the Olga book in no time.

Stick Cat: A Tail of Two Kitties

Perfect for fans of Diary of a Wimpy Kid, Big Nate, and animal lovers everywhere – meet Stick Cat!  A heavily illustrated young reader series, from the author of Stick Dog -- Tom Watson! Your young artist can even learn how to draw Stick Cat!

In the first adventure (available now), it’s a big day in the big city for Stick Cat and his best friend, Edith. There are treasures to hunt, songs to sing, pigeons to catch, and naps to take. But way up on the 23rd floor, danger lurks just around the corner. Terrible noises and violent crashes trap a desperate man in the building across the alley. Stick Cat will need to navigate his way across the alley -- and around Edith’s peculiar ways -- to attempt a rescue.

Check out the official Stick Cat site.

Olga and the Smelly Thing from Nowhere

Perfect for fans of Dear Dumb Diary and My Big Fat Zombie Goldfish, and great preparation for El Deafo, Roller Girl, and Smile, your reader will love Olga and the Smelly Thing from Nowhere. Your young artist can also learn to Draw Animals with Elise Gravel, too!

Olga finds a creature in her garbage can one day, and all it says is “MEH!” It won’t eat, it won’t sleep, it snores, it stinks, and Olga studies it like mad. She adores it and eventually names it after herself--an OLGAMUS. A trip to the library reveals little, while a trip to the local shop proves successful when Olga discovers Meh’s favorite food is olives! These episodes take place over a few days in Olga’s never-dull life, and she manages to reveal a great amount of information not only about herself, but about everything from the scientific method and Jane Goodall and some of her favorite odd creatures to the ins and outs of friendship and every human’s use for living in a community.

Check out the official Olga and the Smelly Thing from Nowhere site.

Not only are they beautiful and beautifully made, but they’re produced with healthy, natural materials that are safe for you and your home.

I really think good pillows are something we often take for granted. It's been many years since I've invested in a new one, and I'm totally kicking myself for not doing it sooner. I've slept like a dream ever since I switched to my Helena pillow!

We're still sleeping on the mattress that we got when we got married, so I've totally got my eye on a new Mirador mattress. I can't believe it comes squashed into that tiny box, and you really can't beat Brentwood Home's 120-night guarantee: "Sleep on your mattress for up to 120 nights. If you don’t love it, we’ll give you a full refund and pick it up for free."

Oh, I almost forgot -- right now there's a Brentwood Home coupon available! Use promo code OURHOME at checkout to save 10% on your purchase.

I've teamed up with the folks at Brentwood Home for an awesome giveaway, featuring bedroom essentials that’ll change the way you sleep. In this sleep wellness bundle, you’ll receive four pillows that will have you more excited than ever to jump into bed. Here's what the Sleep Wellness Bundle includes:

2 Helena Latex/Kapok Pillows

Two pillows are filled with all-natural latex ribbons that have a responsive feel that provides uplifting support, combined with silky-smooth kapok. They’ll be the perfect fit for people who switch between multiple sleeping positions, as they easily mold to your neck and head. The cover is made of organic cotton, grown without toxic pesticides or fertilizers,
so you can sleep safe and sound.

2 Carmel Molded Latex Pillows

The winner will also receive two Carmel molded latex pillows that are bouncy, resilient, and molded to perfectly contour your head and neck. They’re made with healthy materials for your sleep, like a 100% organic cotton cover, and they’re certified free of synthetic materials by the Eco-institut.
