The Little Lemon Makes it to the Big Screen! #StandWithMe To Premier in Atlanta

 
"Make a Stand could not just raise money to end child slavery, but create a role model for all business."  
The New York Times


Make a Stand is a shining example of what one person can do. After seeing a photo of two enslaved boys, 8 year-old Vivienne Harr "made a stand" at her lemonade stand for 365 days straight. 

 

Her moment became a movement. People around the world stood with Vivienne and helped her raise over $100,000 for Not For Sale. Remarkably, Vivienne surpassed her goal…after 173 straight days of selling lemonade. It captured hearts around the world—and redefined what each of us can do. The moment became a movement--and a better way of doing business.


When you purchase Make a Stand Lemon-aid, you are voting for fair-trade business practicesand freedom for all. You are making a stand and having a positive impact on our world. 



They give 5% of all gross revenues to hand-selected organizations that do leading work in eradicating child slavery. On first glance, that may not sound like a lot, but as the company grows, it will be. If every corporation in America gave 5% of total revenues (not just profits), that would be roughly $1 trillion every year.


Fair Trade is a simple way to make every purchase matter. When you buy a product with the Fair Trade Certified™ label, you know that the farmers and workers who produced it were paid better prices and wages, work in safe conditions, protect the environment, and earn community development funds to empower and improve their communities. ~Fair Trade USA.

Vivienne and her mother illustrated a beautiful children's book that is now available. A feature length-documentary film titled: #standwithme about Vivienne's story will air in theaters across America. The Atlanta Premiere will be on February 27! Vivienne will also host a new network TV series tentatively-titled "Kid MissionPossible” (produced by Endemol, the world's largest independent production company). She will be a speaker at Wisdom 2.0 Summit in February, 2014.

Don't Go Noseblind! Breathe Happy With Febreze {Review + Giveaway}

*This review and giveaway was made possible by Double Duty Divas and Febreze. I was compensated for my participation in this campaign, but all opinions are 100% mine.*



When you have pets at home like us, it is very common to become noseblind, to the lingering odor they leave behind. We have two dogs, two cats, and we often foster rescues until they are ready to be adopted. The problem of becoming noseblind, is that you always have the doubt in the back of your mind that your house smells funny. 


I don't know about you but I panic when I know someone is coming over to visit. I clean the house from top to bottom, but I'm never fully satisfied because I always worry about odor infestation, in other words, what your guests overwhelmingly smell as soon as they walk in the door. Let's be real, we all know that person that can track scents like bloodhound. They can follow the scent trail and no matter how well you clean they can always find it.

My Stress-Free Thanksgiving Dinner - Why Honeybaked Ham is My New Best Friend

Don't sweat the small stuff! Have a Happy Thanksgiving with Honeybaked Ham!
No matter how much I plan a sensible Thanksgiving dinner, I always over-plan, over-work, and over-spend. This year I'll try a different approach. Cook as little as possible and leave the rest to Honeybaked ham. I'm willing to cook a 30 minute side dish (just one) and bake a simple dessert (apple crème brûlée bread pudding) but besides those two things (that can easily be made the day ahead) my kitchen will not be open during the holidays.
This year I choose to be happy and stress free for Thanksgiving. I refuse to slave all day in the kitchen. As much as I enjoy cooking there are days I wish I have a personal chef at home that could cook for me. Since I don't see this remotely happening, the best thing I could do is order the Honeybaked Ham Whole Turkey Feast. Perfect for the Holidays and special celebrations, this gourmet feast includes a whole roasted turkey, old-fashioned cornbread dressing, …
