Disney On Ice "Passport To Adventure" Bay Area Discount Code!

I may be eligible to receive complimentary tickets to the event described below, for posting about this event.  However, all opinions stated are 100% my own and not influenced by the company described. 

I don't get to take my kids to many PAID attractions, with the graduate school repayments, student loans, preschool tuition, healthy organic food and music classes piling up.

However, I'm pretty sure that a Disney on Ice event would be absoultely magical for them to attend.

So, with an upcoming event being only an hour and 15 minutes away, I think I'm going to try and take them for their very first LIVE Ice Skating Show!

Two Locations in the Bay Area will be hosting Disney On Ice "Passport To Adventure":

  • SAP Center  Oct. 19th - 23rd, 2016

Mom Outfit Elevated With prAna Sustainable Clothing #Giveaway

I received this product for free from #MomsMeet (, May Media Group LLC, who received it directly from the manufacturer. As a Moms Meet blogger, I agree to use this product and post my honest opinion on my blog. The opinions posted are my own #MMLovesprAna.

I'm a mom.

But, before I was a mom, I was my own person.  A woman with some pretty unique style when it came to clothing. 

I don't like to wear "mom clothes" but when I'm stretching across the second row of my minivan to buckle the carseat in the third row, I like to wear at least movable, aka. comfortable clothes.

KEEP READING for your chance to WIN the sustainable clothing prAna outfit I'm wearing.....

Have I found my happy medium brand? The cross between stylish and comfortable, plus sustainable?

I'm definitely NOT a fashionista, but still refuse to wear sweatpants to the grocery store.

I want something that's easy to throw on and move around in, but that doesn't say "I've given up." 

Wearing this prAna Devan Henley seriously feels like drawing yourself a warm silk bath and being surrounded in silky smooth warmth.

It's one of those clothing items that just separate themselves from the rest, when you put it on, you can feel the quality of the design and craftsmen(women?)ship that just makes it sing.

It's not bulky, but it's warm. The organic cotton/jersey blend is perfect for the crisp fall weather we're about to experience!

Don't even get me started on these Mantra pants, made with soft hemp. 

So, I rarely am able to find clothing that fit by just by ordering them online. I have some weird hip to waist ratio or something.  All that to say, these Mantra pants fit me perfectly.

For reference: I'm 5'3, 125lbs...and typically wear a medium in pants (I have a thick-ish waist), however, I followed the sizing guide on the prAna website and ordered a XS which fit me perfectly (I'm often a Petite Medium in other brands).

It's still fairly hot up here in Northern CA, but I find myself checking the weather station each morning hoping it's pants weather because all I want to wear is Mantra!

Both the prAna Devan Henley and Mantra Pant are totally transferrable from a yoga class to the grocery store or library.

In fact, the Mantra pant could be paired with a nice blouse for a night out on the town with your partner, which I'm planning to do next week! 

As you can see in the above photo, my reality is kids jumping all over me when I'm trying to relax or meditate, so at least my clothing can pamper me with the comfort of their design. 

I'm sold on the classic and moveable style of prAna!

Oh yes. It's the small things that count these days, when I'm pressed for time in the morning to drop off the kiddos at Kindergarten.

prAna makes me happy to not have to stress about what to wear. I'll just throw on this Devan Henley and Mantra Pant and get going with ease and style.

Now who wants to buy me one in every color?!
