Hurry, It’s Not Too Late To Save Big on A Gift For Dad at PicturesOnGold

One of my husband’s favorite Father’s Day Gifts was when I had his favorite photo of himself and our sons, permanently laser engraved onto a stainless steel key chain from PicturesOnGold.  He uses that key chain every day, and the photo still looks as good as it did when I gave it to him.

This Father’s Day I ordered him a photo engraved stainless steel dog tag with 24″ ball chain. It arrived so quickly which means you can still order this pendant for Father’s Day! If you hurry, you can save 59% and pick up this beauty that can be engraved on the back with a special message for just $49. Sale ends today, so don’t delay!

Pictures on Gold products are made in the USA in their NYC factory. This dog tag and any of their other items arrives in a beautiful gift box with a certificate of authenticity.

I highly recommend Pictures On Gold for unique gifts that will be cherished for a lifetime. I love my photo engraved bracelet, and I know you will find so many great gift options for Father’s Day, Graduations, Anniversaries, Birthdays and more on their site. 

I can’t wait until my husband sees this new photo pendant, he is going to love it. Let me know what you think. Happy Father’s Day!

Wow Dad This Father’s Day With The Smartest Toothbrush For Less #OralBFathersDay

This post is sponsored by Oral-B and I am working with their PR agency. As always, my words and views are 100% my own.

We do it every day, at least 2 or 3 times, and maybe more on some days. It becomes routine, something we don’t even think about really. We go through the motions and move on with our day or go right to bed afterward. Of course, I am talking about brushing our teeth. Are you happy with your toothbrush? I mean, really happy? Is it getting your teeth and gums as clean as they can be?

What if I told you about a better toothbrush? By better, I mean it is the smartest toothbrush on the block! The Oral-B GENIUS 8000 can be paired with your smartphone through the Oral-B App using Bluetooth technology. Brushing my teeth has never been so fun and effective!

The Oral-B GENIUS 8000 was designed to help you brush like your dentist recommends. When you pair it with your smartphone through the special Oral-B App, you can get customized, real-time feedback about your brushing habits. The Position Detection technology ensures you never miss a zone and the brush and app help make sure you brush for the recommended 2 minutes and include a pressure alert to protect your gums from over-brushing.

This toothbrush and its technology are beyond cool! I downloaded the free Oral-B App quickly through the App Store for my iPhone X, but it is also available for Android users through Google Play. Upon opening the App, I was able to easily personalize it for me, including selecting my favorite color LED light for the 360 SmartRing. When I brush using the App, it lets me know if I am missing any zone, so I can adjust my technique. My teeth and gums not only feel clean and fresh, I know they are!

The Oral-B GENIUS 8000 is compatible with all the Oral-B brush heads. There are 3 different heads in the package to get you started, along with a handy brush head holder that fits right on top of the charging base. Oral-B’s rounder brush heads, clean better so, you have cleaner, whiter teeth from the first time you use it! Equip with 6 brushing modes, the Oral-B GENIUS 8000 tackles all your oral care needs.


In addition, there is an awesome smart travel case with a smartphone holder and allows you to charge your toothbrush and smartphone, using only one outlet!

Charging is something you will be doing less, thanks to the Lithium ion battery that allows you to go 12 days between charges. The super strong smartphone mount has a suction base that locks the unit securely in place horizontally or vertically, so you can get the best angle for real time feedback on your brushing.

I look so forward to brushing my teeth now! It is no longer routine, and I am really enjoying the experience. My teeth feel amazing and I know that I am doing a great job because I have the feedback that assures me I am not forgetting any areas.

Check out my video of the Oral-B 8000 GENIUS below to learn more:

The Oral-B Genius 8000 makes a great gift especially with Father’s Day coming up!  Today through 11:59 p.m. take advantage of the Amazon Deal of the Day on the Oral-B GENIUS 8000 – the smartest toothbrush around.

Bacon Bouquet For Father’s Day #ChefsCutJerky

Father’s Day is tomorrow and my husband got an early present, a bacon bouquet! You probably think that sounds funny but he really did. He is not really into flowers, truth be told he does not know the difference between a flower and a weed most of the time. That has led to some huge problems when he decides to just weed my flower beds without telling me, but let’s not go there now.  Back to the bacon. My husband likes jerky so when I found out I could get him a Chef’s Cut Real Bacon Jerky bouquet it was a no-brainer. Chef’s cut handcrafted bacon jerky has real ingredients and is slow-smoked to crispy perfection. This man’s bouquet is perfect to celebrate the special Dad in your life.

chefs cut bouquet

The  Bacon Bouquet arrived in a bouquet box, and included 8 packages of bacon jerky in 3 different flavors: Siracha Style, Maple Style and Applewood Style. My main beef with bacon is the nitrates so when I found out Chef’s Cut Bacon Jerky was nitrate free…you really can have your bacon and eat it too! Beyond that my husband thought it was an awesome Father’s Day Gift! He said it was really tasty and he loved the varieties. It is also much healthier than you might think.

The jerky is made with uncured bacon that is marinated in chef-crafted seasonings. Each piece is a thin, crispy piece of hog heaven because they smoke each piece slowly. Chef’s Cut has no MSG, no Nitrates and is Gluten Free. Bacon and Jerky Lovers of the world know that is something to rejoice about. If there can’t be bacon flowers, at least there can be bacon bouquets!


You can see all Chef’s Cut products on their website and stay in the loop with them on Facebook and Twitter.


I received a bacon bouquet as a blogger working with Chef’s Cut and #SocialBttrflyCo. All my words and views are 100% my own as always.

See How I Am Celebrating Our Anchor This Father’s Day-#NauticaForDad

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #NauticaforDad #CollectiveBias

OUr Anchor


Since losing my dad 9 years ago, Father’s Day is and always will be bittersweet. The man who I celebrated as the best dad in the world is no longer in this world with me. I miss him every day but thank God for all the years, memories and life that we shared. My father was the greatest and he was someone who really cared about people no matter what their status in life. He was a loving and caring husband, a devoted and loving father, and a brilliant and successful engineer and business owner. I learned so much from him and miss him being here with us.

I am thankful to have my husband by my side and enjoy watching him with our children especially our young sons. I am amazed at how much  our youngest idolizes his dad and wants to be like him in every way and how his older brother is so incredibly like his father in personality and temperament. The three of them are super close and do almost everything together. My husband is fully involved and engaged with our kids, coaching little league, teaching them about life, sharing his love of math and science and sports.

Nautica Collage 1

He is definitely someone they  look up to and admire and our anchor in this family. For Father’s Day this year we plan to spend a relaxing day on the lake we live on. Living on the water is something we all cherish and so last weekend when I saw the Nautica Voyage Gift Set at Macy’s, I knew he would love it .

macy's collage

Nautica Voyage is perfect for my husband because it has an undeniably masculine scent-  an anchor of woody amber  balanced with musk and damp moss.  That really fits my husband to a T and  Macy’s had a great deal on the gift set which is a $128 value priced at just $65!  The value, brands and selection at Macy’s is why it has been my go-to department store for as long as I can remember. It really never lets me down no matter who or what I am shopping for.Nautica 3

The design of the bottles in this set is so classic and sleek you want to leave them on display because they are too gorgeous to hide in the vanity or medicine cabinet. My husband is going to love this set and the smaller eau de Toilette spray is perfect for travel, like the getaway we have planned for next month.

Nautica 1


The shower gel and after shave balm along with the fragrance will have him smelling great whether we get that rare date night on the town together or spend the day just hanging out with family and friends.  I cannot wait until he sees it this Sunday!  So who are you celebrating this Father’s Day?

You can stay in the loop with Nautica on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram and be sure and enter the giveaway below for your chance to win big!


  • 1 Grand Prize Winner will win a $4,000 Cruise Vacation Package

Chef Apron, Father’s Day Giveaway!!!

Memorial Day is fast approaching and will fall this year on, Monday, May 26th. Memorial Day is a United States federal holiday celebrated on the last Monday of May in remembrance of the men and women who died while serving in the United States Armed Forces.  It’s  also the unofficial start of  summer!

Many people break out the barbecue for the first big cookout of the season and more often than not, it will be a male member of the family that’s manning the grill!

What is it with guys, fire and raw meat?

The perfect gift for the guy that grills or any cook or chef is an apron and for that reason, Crooked Brook is sponsoring a Chef Apron Giveaway. These professional chef aprons will also make a great Father’s Day gift for dads who like to cook.

Sierra Exif JPEG


Since 1989 Crooked Brook has designed and manufactured chef wear for the world’s most recognized men and women in the noble art and science of gastronomy. All Crooked Brook branded garments and accessories are made to order in the U.S.A and can personalized with the customer’s choice of fabric, pockets, buttons, piping and embroidery.

Sierra Exif JPEG

The giveaway consists of:

  • Two, Apron Style #700 – 35” W x 25” L (approximately), made in white, 10 oz., 100% cotton denim. Depending on the height of the wearer, this apron is calf length.  Total Prize Value with SHI…$45.00

Aprons were originally worn as a utilitarian outer garment to cover the front of the body to protect the wearer’s clothes from soiling, wear and tear. Over the years many different styles of aprons evolved depending on the purpose and were often named after the trade, craft or profession that used that particular design.


A chef apron is waist apron which is a square or rectangular piece of fabric that ties around the waist to cover the body from the waist down. For a cleaner look, some chefs fold the top of the apron over the ties (see image). With a pocket (sometimes divided to create a pen pocket) to hold an order pad (dupe pad) it becomes a bistro apron.


These mid-calf length “old school” heavy duty chef aprons are hard to find and coveted by professional chefs and serious cooks alike.

Crooked Brook also makes a 35” W x 25” L apron that is perfect for grill masters who like to wear shorts and cook over an open or pit fire because the length protects bare legs from the heat.

Another good thing about these aprons is that after they are too dingy and beat up to wear in public, you can cut them up into 100% cotton rags.

Cant to wait to see if you won? Receive a 10% discount on all Crooked Brook Chef Wear and Accessories: Aprons, Bib Aprons (blank, printed or embroidered) Women’s Aprons (blank, printed or embroidered) Chef Coats (blank or embroidered) and Women’s Chef Coats (blank or embroidered) offer valid thru 5/13/14 with the Coupon Code “Mommy Ramblings Chef Apron Giveaway”.

  • You must be 18 years or older to enter.
  • Crooked Brook will ship the prizes to the winner within 30 days of contest end. If address is undeliverable or prize is unclaimed and sent back, winner is responsible for re-shipping charges.
  • Physical address required for shipping; no PO boxes, US recipients only residing in one of the 48 contiguous states.
