Own LIFE OF THE PARTY on Blu-ray TODAY + Reader Giveaway

Anyone else a Melissa McCarthy fan? I have been since watching her as Sookie on Gilmore Girls – she is so funny! Now you have the opportunity to pack your bags and head to college along with her by picking up LIFE OF THE PARTY on both Blu-ray and Digital right now!

About the Movie:

When her husband suddenly dumps her, longtime dedicated housewife Deanna (McCarthy) turns regret into re-set by going back to college…landing in the same class and school as her daughter, who’s not entirely sold on the idea. Plunging headlong into the campus experience, the increasingly outspoken Deanna—now Dee Rock—embraces freedom, fun and frat boys on her own terms, finding her true self in a senior year no one ever expected.

Alongside McCarthy, the film also stars Gillian Jacobs, Maya Rudolph, Julie Bowen, Matt Walsh, Molly Gordon, with Stephen Root, and Oscar nominee Jacki Weaver, Jessie Ennis, Adria Arjona, Debby Ryan and Jimmy O. Yang.

Printable Lunchbox Love Notes for Him or Her

How do you show your loved ones you’re thinking about them when you’re not WITH them? As summer starts to come to an end and we get back into a more regular routine of school and work, those long summer days of family time are replaced by long days at school and at work. But, even though we might not be physically together, there are ways to let our kids and spouses know that we are still thinking about them throughout the day.

Snyders Pretzels Toast Chee Crackers

One of my favorite ways to do this is by packing lunches that I know will be enjoyed. For example, my husband is a BIG pretzel fan. When he has a sandwich for lunch, his choice of side is always pretzels. He likes that the convenient 100 calorie packs let him have a few with his lunch and then continue to snack on them throughout the afternoon. Since I know that, packing Snyder’s of Hanover lunch packs in his lunch makes him happy and lets him know I care enough to make him a lunch packed with love.

Lance Toast Chee Crackers

If he’s packing a snack for me, he knows to include Lance Toast Chee! I have loved these classic cracker sandwiches forever! I especially like them because they really fill me up (thanks to the 5g of protein). And, of course, they taste delicious with those crispy crackers with real peanut butter between them. (Side note – I’m also glad they contain NO no high fructose corn syrup.) When we go bike riding, he always makes sure to pack Lance Toast Chee Crackers in his saddlebag for me because that cycling makes me hungry!

Snyders Lance Lunch Snacks

Another fun way to let my hubby know I’m thinking about him during the day is by including a little lunchbox love note. While we have shared lunchbox notes for kids here before, grown-ups need those reminders of love too! To make it easy for you to make your own lunches packed with love for your husband, wife, partner or significant other, we have these fun printable lunchbox love notes!

Lunchbox Love Notes for him or her

Using the lunchbox love notes is simple. Just print them out HERE using either regular copy paper or, even better, heavyweight paper. Then cut them out, add your own personal touch and slip them into their lunchbox. If you want to be sure they find it, you can even tape it onto the front of their Snyder pretzel pack or Lance Toast Chee!

New OREO International Delight Iced Coffee and Oreo Thin Bites

I first had a taste of the OREO Thins Bites when I was offered them in the airplane snack basket on my flight last week. That was the first time I had ever seen them and I grabbed them as soon as I saw them in that basket. It was a great choice! The are bite size, crispy, fudge-dipped bites of goodness. They’re seriously yummy and the perfect accompaniment to International Delight OREO Iced Coffee.

Creative Father’s Day Celebrations + a Go Organically Fruit Snacks Giveaway

Creative Father's Day Celebrations

We’re only a few days away from Father’s Day. This year it’s time to think beyond the tie, “World’s Greatest Dad” mug, or other traditional gifts. Does Dad really need another hobby-themed tchotchke like the golf ball statue? Check out these four more creative ways to celebrate Father’s Day that Dad will be sure to love!

Idea #1 – Take a hike. What better time to head outdoors than a Sunday in June? Buy Dad a cool piece of hiking gear and attach an invitation to go hiking together that same day. (Need some ideas? Try an insulated water tumbler or an old-school compass.) To make your hike even more enjoyable, print out some Nature Bingo cards and check off items as you see them. Go scouting for squirrels, berries, ant hills, and more!

Idea #2 – Make a memory book. It’s so easy to take pictures these days and post them to social media, but Dad would love to get those precious pictures in a hard copy format. Preserve your memories by ​printing a dozen or so of your favorite family snapshots and paste theme in a mini scrapbook along with handwritten captions and mementos. Have your kids go nuts with hand-drawn artwork to make a beautiful keepsake.

Idea #3 – Have a “favorite foods” feast. What are Dad’s favorite things to eat? Make a list and make a meal out of them, even if they don’t seem to go together. Ice cream, bacon, potato chips, pizza, smoothies, Philly cheese steaks – whatever! If Dad likes it, make it for him to enjoy.

Idea #4 – Send him on a wild goose chase. Get Dad up and moving with a fun treasure hunt. Present him with a clue written on an index card, all leading to the next clue and finally to his ultimate destination – the gift! You could also include smaller gifts along with each clue as he goes.

Go Organically Fruit Snacks

No matter what you and your kids do with Dad for Father’s Day, you can all enjoy some Go Organically Fruit Snacks! These fruit snacks are sourced from USDA certified organic fruit and other ingredients to offer you the best, most authentic and delicious snacks for your family.

Reader Giveaway: One lucky Chic ‘n Savvy reader will receive three boxes of Go Organically Organic Fruit Snacks, one of each flavor. To enter, just complete the form below by 11:59 pm ET on 7/2/18. Good luck!
