Hot Pockets, Drumsticks, and DiGiorno. Oh my!

Being on camera is something I love to do. Feeling the lights on my face, with cameras surrounding me, makes me feel… giddy. Bring my family or a couple of my friends onto the set and I’m a happy girl. Add good food and it just makes for a really good time.

This week I had the privilege of working with Lunchbox Studios, Nestlé, and a couple of good friends to create a fun video for Nestlé’s micro site on Erika, Aracely and I found ourselves eating and gabbing all day long.

What did we eat and why? Well, we got to try over a dozen brand new items from Nestlé – pizza, casseroles, ice cream, and more. The idea was to capture our real, initial reactions to these new products. It was a long day, and none of us wanted to see another morsel of food when we were finished, but we all had a blast!

I’ll let you know when the micro site is live!


Plus Up YOUR Purse! {Giveaway}

by Christine - From Dates to Diapers on September 19, 2010

What does the inside of your purse look like? If it looks anything like mine did, you have it so jam-packed with everything you think you need, that you can never find what you really do need. Right?

Well, I had the opportunity to give my purse an extreme makeover, thanks to Kellogg’s, and realized that I can do without a whole lot of what I was carrying around in my bag.

Here’s a glimpse at what my purse looked like before Kellogg’s helped me “plus it up”:

Purse Makeover - Before

I was actually carrying around a diaper bag full of not only my stuff but my kids’ stuff, as well. Do you ever find that the bigger your bag, the more stuff is given to you to “hold”? Two of my kids grabbed the tubs of goodies I was carrying for them just before I took the above pictures. I kid you not. Tubs.

What else did I have in my bag? Too many snacks and sugary treats, loose papers and receipts, and tons of trash (not shown).

So, what does my purse look like now?

Purse Makeover - After

My bag is now a bit smaller, but so much more organized. I threw away the garbage, filed the receipts, and left out anything that was unnecessary. I also eliminated all of the sugary snacks, replacing them with Kellogg’s FiberPlus bars – a healthy, but tasty snack.
