Trump Masks Popular for Purim in Israel

Would you dress up as the President for Purim? Our friends in Israel are scooping up Trump masks in record numbers, for the third year in a row. There are five different options, including a “Joker” fright version. According to this article, American political figures are always in demand, and Obama masks were just as popular during his term in office.

It goes to show that American culture is truly international and our bond with Israel is unbreakable.

Gymboree’s “Follow Your Art” Clothes are Colorful & Creative

This post contains affiliate links. I’ll be compensated if you make a purchase after them. I was compensated for this post.

With spring on the way, most of us are getting ready to refresh our wardrobes. It’s a season full of possibilities, after all, when the world looks and feels fresh. Gone are the heavy winter coats and boots, with brighter and lighter items needed. Clothes, of course, are a great way to express our individuality and many kids are surprisingly picky about what they wear. (This is not a battle I want to fight and will let the kids choose, within reason, what they prefer.)

Gymboree, the kids’ clothing expert, understands. They’ve created a new campaign called “Follow Your Art” that lets kids express themselves with a colorful new line. By selecting just the right style, they can put their one-of-a-kind spin on an outfit that’s both affordable and stylish.

Everything I’ve purchased has been extremely durable and usually will last long enough to be used by multiple kids. Casual playwear is what we need most, but the coordinated dressy looks, for holidays or special occasions, are also really nice.

Right now, free shipping is available and lots of sales—$14.00 Dresses, $10.00 Denim, and $6.00 Tops and Shorts. The fruit leggings are my favorite, and there’s much more at Gymboree with markdowns up to 70% off.

Vegan Dog Treats Giveaway

To say that my pups are spoiled is a bit of an understatement. Not a day goes by that these little angels don’t beg for treats, and most of the time, I indulge them. While I love to make them happy, I don’t like to feed them the inferior junky stuff that most treats contain (scary ingredients like fillers, chemicals, and preservatives).

Leela Ryan offers an all-natural, organic, and vegan option that contains no wheat, no corn, and no soy. For dogs that have a meat allergy and/or a sensitive stomach, a plant-based option can be a lifesaver. Plus, the treats are not only healthy, but also tasty to animals.

This luxury pet brand was created by a wonderful lady named Vanessa for her special Pekinese-Poodle mix. She is committed to producing a high quality product that contains real fruit and veggies, evidenced by these awesome flavors: Banana Pudding, Wild Berry Scones, and Tartes Aux Pommes.

You can probably tell from the packaging that these treats are upscale, like the kind sold at fancy dog boutiques. A lot of attention has been given to the look and taste. I find the pastel colors super cute. As for the insides, my guy LOVED every bite of these gourmet treats. Notice how his little eyes are closed, savoring the delicious crunchy goodness.

Tartes Aux Pomme which has oats, apples, and cinnamon was his favorite. He could’ve easily eaten the entire bag if I hadn’t rationed. Leela Ryan definitely lives up to their motto, “For the Well Treated Dog.”

Do you have a dog that would enjoy a tasty treat? Enter to win this giveaway and 9 bags of gourmet goodies could be yours (3 of each flavor). Entries will be open thru 3/15. Good luck!
