Get your kids ready for school with @Kohls - Your One Stop Shop! #Kohls101 #Back2School #FindYourYes #ad #BeYourself

It is hard to believe that school is starting in a few weeks.  Summer is winding down and now school supply lists are posted online and stores are filling with supplies and book bags.  That is jut the beginning of everything you need to get the kids ready for school.  If you have not got to experience the craziness of back to school shopping, it doesn't just begin with paper and end with a glue stick.  Kids need new clothes, if they are like mine, they lived in shorts all summer and all their pants from last school year look more like the are capris then jeans.  Flip flops need to retire and sneakers need to be bought.  New back packs need purchased, time to replace the lunch bag that had one too many food items left in it over night, etc.  Well this year instead of hitting multiple stores, why not do all your back to school shopping this year at Kohl's!


Kohl’s will make your family’s back-to-school shopping trip easier than ever before by offering school supplies in-store! They have all the school supplies your kids  need from folders to notebooks and pens to pencil cases.  From bright and vibrant pens and pencils that your daughter will love to cool  soccer folders that your little athlete will love, Kohl's has it all.  They even had a 40 pack of various erasers from toppers to big pink ones.  My daughter had to have the the erasers, her back to school list required a minimum for 12 erasers...there must be a lot of erasing in 4th grade!

Back packs and lunch sacks were a must for this year.  My son is more of simplistic child and chose a black JanSport, while my daughter went with a purple bag and lunch bag.  I had no idea Kohl’s carried JanSport bags!  They are such quality bags that last forever, I still have mine from college!  I can only imagine how long the one I bought him.

On the topic of bags, the lunch bag selection is great at Kohl's, plus all the items you can get for inside the lunch bags!   We are big time lunch packers, even Mom and Dad pack for work!   So of course a must have is quality containers.  We have the standard sandwich containers already, but a nice pack of Rubbermaid containers are perfect for snacks, salads, fruits, leftover and more.  Kohl's even has some super unique containers, like snack containers for veggies with separate holder for your ranch!  They even have salad containers!  You can pack your lunch box in style and it is a great way to teach the kids to reuse, no tossing plastic baggies!   Whether you are a child or adult and in need of a water bottle (our school allows kids to have them on their desks), then pick up a Contigo brand one at Kohl's!  I was introduced to the coffee mug and loved it, the water bottle is just as amazing.  Clip it on to the back pack for easy transportation home on the weekends to wash!

Do you label your children's items?  It is a must at our school.  In the past I would order pre-printed labels from Mabel Labels.  I was so excited to see Mabel Labels at Kohl's and the were the Write Away style!
These are the super cool labels that you can create yourself.  No need to order a ton of one child's name, this way you can use the pack for multiple children! They are so cute and such a great value.

No back to school shopping trip is complete without new clothes and shoes!  This year our little man finally started growing taller.  He seemed to hit that magical 48 inches mark that allowed him to hit the amusement parks and water slides without issue. That being said, it also meant that all his pants from the spring were too short.  While this trip for him was more about the pants, we were able to pick up a couple of nice tops and new Addidas sneakers for him.  The blue shirt pictured is from the Tek Gear line.  I have bought this brand before for my husband, but excited to find styles in the boys department as well!  These shirts are cool and  comfortable.


No my little fashionista was a different story.   We seemed to purchase more for her in the top department, especially the super cute and soft cotton MUDD brand shirts.  They had so many cute styles from simple pandas, color blocked pooches to friendly owls!  This year they offer some super cute tops that come with matching infinity scarves as well.  Pair with jeans for school or dress it up a bit with a skirt for church.

I also noticed some of the tops are longer and more flowing.  This is great for those with self-conscious children who are afraid their top is too tight or short!


Head back to school with the latest trends from Kohl's! Find everything you need from shoes and backpacks to hoodies and school uniforms. Stock up on play clothes and weekend outfits in bold colors and bright patterns they'll love to wear. From little boys' socks to juniors' dresses, find the perfect staple pieces for both little and big kids, all at great prices.

Heading to college? Find the coolest dorm d├ęcor and the perfect dorm bedding for your new home away from home. Stay organized with storage cubes, shower caddies and more. Shop Kohl's for back-to-school clothes and more.

So will you be hitting Kohl's for all your back to school shopping?  Stay connected with Kohl’s on Facebook and on Twitter.  Follow the back-to-school conversation with #BeYourself

Grape-Nuts Fitness Tips for Safe Summer Workouts #sp


Summer workouts can be grueling – especially   those that are outdoors! Now that summer is in full gear, so are the temps! Just because the temps are rising doesn't mean your workouts need to be put on the back burner!  Here are some tips from Post Grape-Nuts to help beat the heat your  for Warm Weather Workout:
  • Time your workout wisely: The early morning is the best time for an outdoor workout! Avoid working out between 10am and 3pm when the sun is at its strongest. 
  • Pre-cool your body: Before working out, lower your core body temp to increase your endurance. Stay in air-conditioned room, take a cold shower or sip on a cold drink one hour before exercise. You can also use an ice pack or cold towel on your neck. 
  • Snack smart:  Have a light snack prior to starting your workout. Grape-Nuts' Pre-Workout Energy Shot offers a healthy combination of carbs and protein for extra energy to push through.
  • Protect your skin: Apply oil-free and sunscreen with SPF 15 or higher to help prevent sunburn. Select a sweat-proof variety to prevent sunscreen from irritating your eyes. Sunglasses and a lightweight hat can also be helpful to block the sun's rays. 
  • Slow your pace: Your body's temperature rises as you exercise harder and longer. Move with less intensity or do intervals vs. a non-stop workout to avoid overheating. Take more breaks and slow down a bit, especially in extreme heat. 
  • Get Creative: To avoid having to bring exercise equipment with you, rely on body weight exercises such as squats, lunges, planks and push-ups to tone your arms, legs and abs. 
  • Drink Up and Refuel: Drink water every 15 minutes and refuel immediately post-workout. A smoothie with coconut water is a quick and easy way to do so while also bringing your body temperature back down. Grape-Nuts Post-Workout Tropical Refresher is one recipe that will get the job done! Grape-Nuts contributes added whole grains and helps make for a heartier shake.
Ingredients
  • 1 container (6 ounces) low-fat plain Greek yogurt
  • ¼ cup coconut water
  • 2 Tablespoons Grape Nuts Cereal
  • 3/4 cup frozen mango chunks
  • 4 fresh mint leaves
  • Garnish:  fresh mint leaves
Directions
  1. Place all items in a blender and process until smooth.
  2. Garnish with fresh mint leaves, if desired.
