#KidsBuckleUp $100 Amazon Giftcard Giveaway

Blog­gin’ Mamas would like to sup­port the Ad Coun­cil and The U.S. Depart­ment of Transportation’s National High­way Traf­fic Safety Admin­is­tra­tion (NHTSA) with pro­mot­ing the Seat Belt Safety cam­paign, which asks par­ents of chil­dren ages 8–14 to make sure their kids are con­sis­tently and prop­erly wear­ing their seat belt every time they get in the car.

Par­ent­ing a tween involves com­pro­mise. But here’s one rule that should not be up for debate – the car doesn’t move until every­one is wear­ing a seat belt. If you say it, and if par­ents buckle up them­selves, your tween will buckle up. And if they don’t, that’s a fight worth hav­ing. It might just save your tween’s life.

Did you know that one child pas­sen­ger age 8 – 14 is injured every 8 min­utes in a car crash? From 2009 – 2013, 1,522 kids ages 8–14 died in car, SUV and van crashes. Of those who died, almost half were unbelted. As chil­dren get older they’re some­times less likely to buckle up. The per­cent­age of child pas­sen­gers who die while rid­ing unre­strained gen­er­ally increases with age and is most pro­nounced among 13 and 14-year-olds regard­less of seat­ing position.

Check out this Battlefiled MiniVan Video:

Buckling-up is an important habit to instill in children at a young age. Parents can lead by example by wearing a seat belt themselves and by insisting on seat belt use for every passenger in their vehicle. Seat belts and safety seats, if used correctly, dramatically reduce the risk of fatality or injury to children.

Just a few short months ago, I turned 40 and I have noticed that some of the products in my beauty regimen don’t work as well as they used to.  Fine lines and wrinkles are something that I would like to go away. I also hate the tired look that I have under my eyes and wanted to see what I could do about this.  It was time to experience a sudden change.


I have been using Sudden Change Under-Eye Firming Serum for about a week and a half now.  The first time, it was a little tricky, but I found that with practice it became so much easier to use and I achieved the desired effect of visibly reducing under-eye bags, lines, wrinkles and dark circles.


I find it be best to mix it with foundation.  I mix two drops of serum and foundation in my hand and I get ready to apply it under my eyes.



Just two drops of Sudden Change Under-Eye Firming Serum applied under each eye is all you need to instantly reduce the appearance of under-eye wrinkles, lines and puffiness.

It takes just three minutes for  Sudden Change Under-Eye Firming Serum  to work. It helps to reduce under-eye bags, dark circles, lines, wrinkles and puffiness.

I noticed that it really helped with the fine lines around my eyes. It also did reduce some of the puffiness too.
