Look Ahead to 2017 With Eyes of Adventure and Shwood Sunglasses

I love the beautiful simplicity of life! I also love finding new adventures to experience whether it be with my family, friends, or setting off on a solo trip. For years I let the everyday busyness of work, kids, keeping up with the house, and the everyday stresses dictate when I was going to enjoy the wonders of life but I'm determined, now more than ever,  to be more spontaneous, to take deep breaths, and to look for new ways to experience the goodness of life in the coming year. There's just something refreshingly beautiful about making life more simple. I'm not the only one who sees what is naturally gorgeous about the simple things. Shwood sunglasses have taken one of the most basic every day products and brought them back to a natural state of simple elegance  Shwood sent me the glasses pictured above at no cost in exchange for this review, and I know you're gonna love what you see!

This Year Put Science Under The Christmas Tree {With National Geographic From Discover With Dr. Cool}!

It's time for another post about putting Science under your Christmas tree! I went searching this year to find some amazing companies with some amazing products for all of my readers and boy did I find something great in Discover With Dr. Cool! Discover With Dr. Cool makes it easy for parents to find educational gifts for their kids by categorizing all of their products on their home page. So whether your son or daughter is into dinosaurs, space, earth science, chemistry, and more, you can find the perfect gift that targets their specific interest, making your last minute gift shopping a cinch! Discover With Dr. Cool just came out with a brand new line of kits and products from National Geographic, which were sent to me at no cost to facilitate this feature, and there's no doubt you'll find at least one of them you'll need to put under your tree this year!

This Year, Put Science Under The Christmas Tree {With The Squishy Human Body}!

If you've followed Our Southern Style for any length of time you've probably heard me talk about my 3rd grade daughter, Eva. Every kid is unique and special and Eva is no different. Of all my kids she's the one that is most interested in learning. Science, History, Math, she doesn't care as long as she's learning. As a Mom it makes me super excited that I don't have to harp on her to get her homework done and I feel so proud watching her be enthusiastic about following her dreams of using Science in a career one day. For some kids, excitement doesn't always come easy when you're talking about learning but I've found that if you can find educational toys that make learning fun and interactive, kids will welcome the opportunity to grow. Video games and "real life" animals are super cool, but why not use Christmas as an opportunity to unlock a hidden interest in your child? This year, I'm putting SCIENCE under the Christmas tree for all of my kids and Smart Lab, who sent me the item pictured above at no cost to facilitate this feature, has one of the most unique and educationally fun toys that any kid would love, the Squishy Human Body!

Make Christmas Even More Magical With My Fairy Garden


 Disclosure: I received the item above, at no cost, in exchange for this feature.

 Sometimes I feel like our kids miss out on some of the coolest toys simply because they don't have commercials on the Disney Channel or Cartoon Network. I love finding toys that are interactive (not requiring batteries is also a plus!) and with the My Fairy Garden Magical Cottage from Play Monster, I found the perfect gift for my daughter, Eva that is not only interactive and powered by the sun, it also brings a little bit of extra magic to Christmas morning!

Win Big This Christmas With Classic Games For The Whole Family

Disclosure: The items pictured above were sent to me at no cost to facilitate this feature. 

Not sure if this is the case with everyone's kids but each year when I ask my children to make up their Christmas lists, more and more they seem to be filled with video game systems and games, and high priced robotic toys. There's something to be said for giving your child that advanced tech game or toy; I'm all about Christmas being the time of year to make magical moments happen (as long as you're not breaking the bank trying to do it)! But I also remember (in a more simple time) the joy my little sisters and older brother had unwrapping our favorite board game and the endless hours of fun we had playing those games together. If you're hoping to share some of the favorite board games that you used to enjoy with your kids this year, check out all of the classic games found at Winning Moves Games! They are sure to have something for everyone on your list!
