Letter from Sunny

Snail Mail bringing smiles to your face!

Snail Mail

As a small child, I remember I used to feel like a million bucks when I would get something in the mail. The excitement of opening it up and seeing just what I had gotten! Which now isn’t so fun when most of its all bills. Keep an eye on your mailbox because now Sunny the Mail Snail, is making snail mail fun again for the whole entire family.

Tell me more about Sunny you say? Sunny will send your family weekly letters about his adventures around the world. Along with these letters are little mementos, trinkets, stickers and lots of fun. When we opened our box for the first time we were greeted with our very own stuffed Sunny plushie. Next, we found so many fun items; a fun and colorful map of the world with lots of fun animal pictures. There was also feathers from Sunny’s best friend “Bluebird” who gives him rides all over the world.

Sunnys Adventures

Our box also included Sunny’s passport with plenty of room for your kids to document all of Sunny’s travels. We have received a letter weekly from Sunny telling us all about his travels. He always includes some many fun items inside his letters. From pictures of animals to fun stickers all the kids love to document his progress around the world. It’s so much fun to see their smiles when we open the mailbox and find a letter from our little friend.

I think right now while the world seems to be on lockdown Sunny the Mail Snail is the perfect addition to your family. It gives your children a sense of adventure, and a chance to see the world when we are all feeling a little cooped up right now. It also is a great way to encourage reading and the love of animals.

Calling all Pokemon Trainers

Calling all Pokemon Trainers
Beauty Brite Disclosure

I remember as a kid when Pokémon first came out and hit the scene. It was a massive hit and everyone wanted to be a trainer just like Ash and his trusty sidekick Pikachu. Little did I grasp that twenty years later the Pokémon crazy would still be going just as strong.

Pokémon Adventures!

Pokemon Trainer

I was 9 when the craze hit the US. We would spend recess at school trading cards, talking about our favorite characters what our favorite Pokémon was ( mine are Bulbasaur and Togepi ). Which actually ended up causing the school to ban bringing the cards to school because they caused so much of a distraction. One of my very first movies seen in a theater was the original Pokémon movie. I remember my dad actually picked me up early from school to go see it. That in itself is a memory I cherish dearly since my dad is no longer alive.

I was so excited when my oldest daughter first asked me “mom” have you ever heard of Pokémon? Being the nerd I am, I was so proud that, that gene got passed down. It’s a great show and franchise to be able to share. One of our favorite things to do is go to the park and play Pokemon Go. Not only has it brought us closer as a family but it gets the kids active and moving. Plus who doesn’t love trying to catch your very on Squirtle, or Charmander?

Pikachu Walkie Takies

Now having four kids my house is full of fun Pokémon toys all the time. From a handmade Ash costume to tons of plushies, trading cards, and even some really fun Pokémon Pikachu Walkie-talkies! With Pikachu right by your side, these walkie-talkies can reach long distances and are static-free. Perfect for those outside adventuring activities.

Walkie talkies

In today’s day and age it’s really refreshing to be able to have something like Pokémon to be able to share with my kids. It’s so fun to be able to look back on a simpler day and time. To see the joy on my kid’s faces when they are telling me all about their favorite Pokemon or something they caught while playing one of the games. In my opinion, that’s so much of what this world needs these days are to go back and take a breath and look with the eyes of a child and find joy in the little things.

Whose your favorite Pokémon?

Three Fun Ways to Build Self Esteem

In a bit of a rut? Want to build more confidence and improve your skills? The Coronavirus isn’t helping those with mental health issues. Today, we share three fun ways to build self esteem! These are fun ways to go about it!

Three Fun Ways to Build Self Esteem

Travel- especially solo travel

Travel is always a good use of your time and money, and travelling solo can be so empowering. For obvious reasons with a global health pandemic going on at the moment travel isn’t possible right now, but it won’t always be this way. Have a think about where you’d most like to go in the world, and start planning your trip for the future when the virus is under control and life as we knew it before can resume. If there’s one thing that this health crisis has taught us it’s that we shouldn’t take travel for granted, and how incredible it is that on any normal day we can book a trip, hop on a plane and go. Solo travel is great for your self esteem as it shows you that you can manage alone- if you can navigate a foreign country, what can’t you do?! 

Find your personal style

It’s easy to say that confidence should come from within, but it’s not that easy to be completely happy in your own skin. We all have our hang ups and insecurities, although the right clothing, hair and makeup can certainly minimise these and help us to feel more confident. Work on your skin, issues here are often a result of underlying problems in the body such as hormonal imbalances meaning topical washes and over the counter treatments won’t be that effective. In other cases, your skin might just need a pamper and cleanse after being subjected to pollution and daily stresses, a hydra facial acne treatment will leave it feeling and looking fresh. Your hair will also be strongly linked to your self esteem, so when you’re able to visit a salon. Go in with a vision and have them bring it to life for you based on your hair type, length and colour. Buying new clothes and makeup and making an effort with your day to day look can also help you to love yourself and enjoy your appearance- have fun with it!

Try a new hobby

Hobbies are essential for people of all ages to have, even if you think you’re too busy to try something new, it’s so worth making the effort to fit it into your schedule. This is because hobbies allow you to build new skills, meet like minded people and stay productive on your days off. Do you spend your days off work lazing around watching Netflix and going back feeling like you’ve achieved nothing? Having hobbies prevents this from happening. You could start up a sport, try baking, crafting, blogging, the list is endless. Even right now while most of the world is locked down, there are a ton of great hobbies from home that you could start and would keep you busy and entertained. It’s so satisfying seeing yourself improve.
