New England Kids Triathlon

New England Kids Triathlon
New England Kids Triathlon has partnered with the New England Patriots NFL Play 60 Program and the YMCA to build the largest kids triathlon in New England. It will be held on July 21 at Massachusetts Institute Of Technology (M.I.T.). Triathlon is one of the fastest-growing sports in the world, and this event introduces kids to a healthy, positive lifestyle that encourages daily exercise, good nutrition and making the right choices. It is a sport that rewards preparation, strength, endurance and attention to detail. There is a huge, positive link between exercise and success in school. And, there is a strong relationship between health and fitness and success in life. This is why we believe so strongly in introducing the life-long sport of triathlon to kids. Besides, almost every kid loves to swim, bike and run!

Kidecals Keycals Review

I recently wrote an article highlighting a 15% off discount from kidecals. As compensation for that post, I received credit at their site. I decided to get keycals, little decals you put on your keyboard to create a fancy design. I ordered the Blue Zig Zag Keycals.

Here's what the keyboard looks like before putting them on:

Free Screening: Disney's The Lone Ranger

Movie Poster
Since I stopped working in Boston and the Boston Phoenix shutdown, I've lost my major sources for finding movie screenings. I ran across this one in Entertainment Weekly. If you happen to live in Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles, New York City, or Washington, DC, you can get a pass for you and a friend to an advanced screening of The Lone Ranger. The screening is at 7pm on July 1st, supposedly held especially for readers of the magazine. This film is rated PG-13.

Here's a behind the scenes look featuring an interview with The Lone Ranger himself, Armie Hammer:

Evgie Wall Decals $150 Giveaway

Here's a giveaway for a great way to turn a boring room into something great with something other than just paint. The winner will get a $150 eGift code which will buy most of the available wall decals. I think it would be fun to get two decal sets and combine them in odd ways, so you would have a giraffe traveling to space or an alien flying a UFO under the sea.  You have until July 3rd to enter to win, and this is for US and Canada residents. Good luck.
Evgie and Ev are the expertise in digital illustration, interior decoration and wall decals design behind Evgie.com. They grew up drawing from early childhood and loved it so much it became their profession. EVGIE Studio was started in 2010 and pretty soon became a full time career.

Wall decals are easy to apply, easy to remove, easy to tailor to a specific wall or surface. It is very easy with the wall decals to take a plain unexciting room and transform it into a jungle or safari, forest or friendly animals, outer space or the ocean. We all want these rooms for our little ones to spark their imaginations. Evgie.com helps to make the decorating easy, fun, and simple!

Yankee Candle Man Candles Review

I live in a Yankee Candle household. We're constantly burning candles from them, and my wife is a frequent visitor to their South Deerfield home location. When I saw the announcement for new Man Candle scents, I just had to try them. With names like Mmmm, Bacon and Movie Night how can you resist? Thankfully, I was provided with both scents to facilitate this review.
Yankee Candle Man Candles

If you aren't familiar with their Man Candles line, these were introduced last year with scents of Riding Mower, Man Town, and First Down. With more manly names (and scents) than their typical line, the hope was to attract more men to purchase their candles. Last year's scents didn't attract me as much as the newer pair. I wasn't so keen on smelling fresh cut grass for instance, but bacon... mmmm!!!

The first of the two candles we burned was Mmmm, Bacon (Homer). This certainly smells like bacon, the real pork kind, not the fake low cal turkey stuff, but it was universally thought that it reminded you more of a wood-burning fireplace. That wasn't a bad thing, just slightly different than expectations. The strongest aroma we got from this was coming home and opening the door. It just hits you if the candle had been burning for a while. You don't get the sound of bacon cooking when you burn this candle, or the clogged arteries either, but I can just imagine it being used for open houses when someone is selling their home.

Jathi App $100 Visa Gift Card Giveaway

Here's a giveaway with the best prize of all, cash, or at least in the form of a Visa gift card. $100 to be exact. You have two weeks to enter to win and a chance to learn about a new iPhone-only app for dealing with electronic party invitations. Good luck. I don't believe you need an iPhone to enter the giveaway, only one to use the actual app.
Jathi, short for "joined at the hip", is a new app set to launch soon! It is a mobile-only iPhone app that lets you create an e-invitation called a “J-vite” that is activity focused. The J-vite is a custom-designed e-invitation you can send to a friend or loved one just for the two of you.


So if you would like to plan a special get together with your daughter, mom, husband, etc., this app will allow you to send a personalized detailed e-invitation in just minutes! I know you might be thinking, "I can just send a text." This is more than just a text....this is a special e-invitation when you want to say, "Hey, I want to spend time one-on-one with you because you are special to me." Even for activities as simple as an ice cream date, wine on the deck after the kids are in bed, or dinner and a movie night out. You can make them a special time by making an extra special e-invitation for this one person you care to spend your time with.

MoonWalk NYC for the Girls

I participated in this campaign for One2One Network. By posting, I am eligible for incentives. All opinions stated are my own.
MoonWalk NYC 2013
Boston has two fundraising walks for breast cancer. The Avon Walk for Breast Cancer in the spring and the Susan G. Komen 3-Day for the Cure walk over the summer. Of course, this is the last year for the Komen walk, as they're canceling it for 2014. In New York City, they, too, have the Avon walk, but they also have another one this year: MoonWalk NYC.

As the name might infer, MoonWalk is a late night walk. So late in fact that the walk is overnight. It is running this year from July 20th - 21st. And signups are open now if you'd like to participate. You can sign up for either the half moon walk at 13.1 miles or the full moon walk of 26.2 miles.

I've signed up for the Komen walk in the past, which is for over 50 miles, and lasts a full three-day weekend. I like the fact that the MoonWalk is over in a night. Even the Avon Walk is multi-day.
