The Stash chair is  a kid sized chair that coverts to a seating bench and also offers storage.  All the kids in my house love this chair.  It comes in Navy Blue, Princess Pink or Pirate Black or and can be purchased here.

The Stash is very durable and fits with any decor.  The kids love hiding their dolls and blocks in the storage area. I love that it can be converted so easily from chair to sitting to storage.  They have also enjoyedtaking turns sitting in the chair as they played, watched movies, or played video games.

The app itself was built to mimic what would happen if you had a manager. The manager would help vet the venue, so you’re going to be able to see reviews and ratings of the actual host or venue. [And] if you’re a consumer looking to hire entertainment, you’re going to be able to see the entertainer’s profile, check out their videos, check out their social media.

They have talent in California, Georgia, Tennessee Nevada and Pennsylvania ranging from Jazz to Classical and everything in between.

Brownwood Acres giveaway

TI am so excited to help promte this giveaway with Little Helpers in Life!  I LOVE cheeries and this does not disappoint.  Read below to see how you can win this Brownwood Acres giveaway

I love products from my state of Michigan. I love seeing all these fantastic companies that I don't always know about because I stay local so often. Brownwood Acres is a company from Michigan area that started in 1945 as a roadside stand, that sold honey and other produce from the families farm. Through the years the company has grown into much more then a roadside stand and offers delicious products. 

I was sent three different bags of cherries from Brownwood Acres to try. Of course I couldn't wait for my husband to get home from work to try. My husband is a cordial cherry lover, so I knew once he seen these I would have a problem with them sticking around in the house to long. I tried the Milk Chocolate covered cherries first. They are so delicious. They don't leave that weird film some chocolate covered fruits do. I also love that the cherries come from Traverse City, Michigan which is the cherry capital of the world. 

My kids are huge fans of any kind of dried fruits. They think that they are eating candy because I always have told them it was candy. I am not really lying, right? So I let them each try these as an after school snack and both of them loved them! I had to divide into smaller bags for them because I know if they are left alone with a pound of dried cherries, they are going to eat them all. Which they did keep asking for more. I have started sending them with my oldest for school snack mixed with a few different kinds of nuts to make a delicious trail mix. 

The Dark Chocolate Covered Cherries are my absolute favorite. I love cherries, I love dark chocolate and the combination of the two is fabulous! I plan on buying more of these to put out for the holidays and maybe even a few smaller bags as gifts for friends, family and even teachers. 

All of these three bags are available in multiple sizes including: 

  • 1/2 pound 
  • 1 pound 
  • 5 pounds

These are fantastic to have around the house if you need a sweet treat. Or to put out in bowls for Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner as a sweet treat. And any cherry lover is going to love getting these as a gift. Perfect stocking stuffer for adults and children. 

Overall, Brownwood Acres has more then impressed my entire family with each of the products we have tried. I am also so happy because it is Michigan made, using Michigan ingredients. I can not say enough great things about all three products. I am so happy that I will be able to order more at the click of a button.
