Divorce: The Unobvious, Dirty Truth


Things people need to expect when they are divorcing with children that most people won't tell you | The Champagne Supernova

First comes love, then comes marriage… and sometimes comes divorce.

I was recently reminded of this unfortunate truth when one of my favorite bloggers publicly and bravely announced that she and her husband were divorcing. They were high school sweethearts and share two young children.

I have several friends and acquaintances who are either separated or divorced from their spouses. My own parents got divorced when I was in law school and while their maturity and religious faith enabled them to be good friends who get along well (thanks, Mom and Dad!), I witnessed the more difficult parts of their post-marriage journey as it was happening and while the wound was fresh.

Divorce should be a judgment free zone, although it doesn’t usually happen that way. Nobody knows what goes on behind closed doors or truly understands the complexities of a relationship. Nobody appreciates how the intricate details of a childhood, career, and the very nature of our own idiosyncrasies play into a marriage.

    How to Prevent a Hangover


    Foolproof way to prevent a hangover | The Champagne Supernova

    I recently attended a wedding just north of Atlanta the Saturday before Mother’s Day.

    The bride is a close friend and I was excited to get outta dodge for 36 hours to see her get hitched. I had plans of waking up early on Sunday to get the first flight back to Tampa so I could spend Mother’s Day with my family.

    My Mother-in-Law, Leslie, has a house near the wedding venue and was my “date” for the event, as my husband was also out of town on a marketing trip for business. (I know many reading this are shocked, but I hit the MIL jackpot. She’s young, not annoying, and doesn’t tell me how to raise my kids. We good.)

    As Leslie and I were getting ready for the wedding, I told her I was going to limit my alcohol intake to two glasses of wine the entire night.

    Famous last words.

    The wedding was truly spectacular. Gorgeous flowers. Beautiful scenery. Good company. A great song playlist. Delicious food.

    The party was rocking and the wine was flowing.

    And flowing.

    And flowing.

    I was over-served somewhere between Sweet Child O’ Mine and Summer of 69.

      Saving Money: Why Ting Mobile Makes Perfect Sense


      How Ting Mobile is a great way to save on your cell phone bill | The Champagne Supernova

      This blog post is proudly sponsored by Ting Mobile. However, all opinions are the real deal. 

      I like saving money.

      As a working parent, I work hard for my earnings and see them dwindle away so quickly each month.

      Dance recitals. Tennis lessons. Gymnastics. Birthday parties. School uniforms. Doctor co-pays.

      Sometimes I feel like The Bank of Mom.

      As my monthly cell phone bill with my current provider is $150.00, I was excited about the opportunity to work with Ting Mobile and learn about their (extremely) low cost cellular services.

      Low. Very low.

      In fact, the base cost for Ting is $6 per month (you read that correctly!) for a phone line. Usage is shared across all devices. The more phones on a Ting account, the less you pay per phone.

      Ting is pay-per-use, so you don’t have to sign up for any type of plan. Your usage during the month (phone minutes, text messages, and data) is what you pay for at the end of the month. What’s great is that minutes, messages, and data are all billed separately.

      There are no contracts, overage fees, or other hidden B.S. (Pardon-a my French). You can try Ting for one month and leave the next month if you aren’t happy.

      The vast majority (80%) of all phones manufactured in the last few years will work with Ting, so it’s likely the phone you already own is one of them. All you need is a Ting SIM card to get started. You can buy the phone from the Ting shop here (they are a verified seller of Apple iPhones!) or bring your own phone, based on your preference.

      Ting has an easy-to-use phone compatibility checker you can use here so you can check RIGHT THIS MOMENT whether your phone will work with Ting.

      Another great quality of Ting is that you don’t have to worry about having bad service. This is because Ting uses both Sprint and T-Mobile towers- you can choose the network that has better coverage in your area. In other words, Ting clients have identical network experience as people who are signed up directly with these carriers.

      I can vouch firsthand this is completely accurate, as I used my Ting phone in a rural area of Georgia (along the Appalachian trial) earlier this month with zero coverage issues and complete service. High five, Ting!

      How to save money using Ting Mobile | The Champagne Supernova

      My littlest homey loves Ting!

      Ting has also created an eBook on how to lower your data usage, which helps Ting customers save money on their monthly bills. Read it here.

      One of my favorite things about Ting is their customer support involves calls that are actually answered by real, live people. No more having to press a series of numbers to get to the right department. Gone are the days of waiting on hold for twenty minutes to have your questions answered. Say adios to fruitlessly having to communicate with a computer.

      I witnessed this personally when I called Ting last week after I was having (minor) issues setting up the Wifi on the iPhone 6 they sent to me. I was greeted by a friendly woman named Melissa on the second ring (!!) Melissa walked me through a couple steps to help troubleshoot the issue. She even called me back five minutes later to ensure there were still no issues.

      You read that correctly. She called me back.

      How is that amazing customer support for you? 

      (Check out Ting Mobile’s Youtube channel highlighting their bar-none customer service here.)

      Another thing I love about trying Ting? When switching over from your carrier, you can keep your existing phone number.

      You don’t need permission from your provider to keep the number. You just keep it.

      That means you don’t have to waste precious time sending mass texts to all of your contacts notifying them that you have a new number.

      (And nobody wants to be held hostage on a mass text, anyway.)

      Setting up my Ting took five minutes. I got the new iPhone directly from Ting, activated the SIM card online, and set up the iPhone. Boom. Done.

      Give it a try and find out why Ting is the mobile that makes sense.

      Use the promotion code of jennifer.ting.com and receive $25 off your bill. So you’re getting a month for free as the average bill is just $23 a month per phone.

      Cheers to saving money! Cheers to Ting!

        Educators Weigh In: How to Raise Successful Children


        Teachers give advice on how to raise successful children | The Champagne Supernova

        Is there a magic formula for how to raise successful children?

        What are the common denominators for children who flourish versus those who fail?

        In my life, I’ve witnessed some children grow into successful, contributing adults and others  fall into the trenches and never seem to recover.

        In this post here, I wrote about an adolescent friend who came from a background of abuse, neglect, and poverty. While unfortunate, it was no surprise she grew into an adult who couldn’t overcome her rough upbringing and has already taken steps to repeat the sad cycle with her own children.

        On the other hand, we also know children who seemingly came from loving and supportive homes (while not knowing what goes on behind closed doors) who also managed to fall off track.

        We’ve also heard of the kids who, despite terrible upbringings, beat the odds and manage to become adults who are financially secure leaders.

        As the working mother of two very young girls, I often wonder “what gives?”

        And while my children will ultimately make their own decisions, I want to arm them with the best resources and emotional support possible to ensure those decisions are good ones.

        Isn’t that what we’re all trying to do?

          There are No Parenting Experts


          There's no such thing as a parenting expert | The Champagne Supernova

          Last year, I met an older man while I was on a layover at the Fort Lauderdale airport.

          Shook my hand.

          Asked me what I did for a living and what I was returning to in Tampa.

          I explained I was an attorney who blogged and did freelance writing on the side.

          He handed me his business card.

          Below his name was the title Parenting Expert.

          At the time, my then four-year-old daughter was in the throes of having inconsolable tantrums and I wanted his advice.

          Running into this guy was like hitting the lottery.

          Wide eyed, I asked, How old are your kids?

          I don’t have children.

          Bear hunting, I thought, He must have said bear hunting expert. Or patenting. He’s a patenting expert.

          Oh, I must have misunderstood. I thought you told me you were a parenting expert. What did you say you did for work?

          You heard right, I’m a parenting expert.

          But you don’t have children?

          He looked at his watch, said he needed to use the restroom, and walked away.

          Excuse me for assuming that one had to be a parent to be considered an expert in the arena!

          I know a secret.

          You know the people who consider themselves parenting “experts”?

          They don’t exist.

          The internet articles that profess the “Do’s and Don’ts” of child rearing?

          While offering useful advice, they’re mostly garbage.

          The people who sit on panels giving other people advice about how they should raise their kids because they are well-studied “experts” and, therefore, know much better than you do?

          They’re full of it.

          So are the people who don’t have children who hold themselves out to the public as parenting experts.

          There is no such thing as a parenting expert. Everyone is trying to determine how to nurture mother nature. Everyone is just trying to figure it out.

          I’ll tell you a personal story.

          My oldest daughter, now five, has a lot of grit. She says what’s on her mind and likes to do what she wants to do, when she wants to do it. It can be difficult for her to control her emotions (She get it from her Mama…) and raising her has been challenging.

          (Another personal sub-story: when I was pregnant with her, I prayed that God would give me a spitfire instead of a wallflower. I absolutely got what I wished for.)

          When my daughter was two, she started having inconsolable tantrums.

          Some of them lasted for hours.

          She would frequently wake up in the morning and hysterically sob without any known reasons. Her teachers often complained the tantrums disrupted the entire class and would be triggered for silly reasons, one of them being that a classmate simply made eye contact with her. Sometimes during the tantrums, my daughter would become so enraged that she would bang her head on the ground. The tantrums were making her sick and sometimes she would get so worked up that she would vomit.

          There was once a time where my daughter was having such a bad tantrum at daycare during drop off that I had to toss her over my shoulder and carry her all the way back to my car kicking and screaming. In the two-minute trek between the classroom and the parking lot, I received text messages from three different friends who witnessed the ordeal and were offering their compassion.

          Stay strong! Been there and it’s the pits. 

          I sat in my car and sobbed to myself.

          Why is she doing this? Where have I failed along the way?

          My husband and I fruitlessly tried everything we could imagine to stop the tantrums.

          Google searches. Appointments with her pediatrician. Meetings with teachers and guidance counselors. Asking other parents. Calling my mom and grandmother. Reaching out to nannies and caregivers with extensive childcare experience. Reading parenting books.

          We heard and read the same piece of advice from the “experts” over and over again.

          She’s a smart girl who is trying to control the family with the tantrums. You must completely ignore them and they will go away. If you coddle her and give attention to the tantrums, they will indefinitely continue. It is critical that you pay them no mind and be patient. She’ll eventually grow out of it. 

          So that’s what we did.

          We ignored the tantrums.

          But they got worse.

          One day, during an hour-long tantrum that was triggered by something ridiculous, I defeatedly got down on my daughter’s level, looked her in the face, told her I loved her, and gave her a hug.

          The tantrum stopped almost immediately.

          We did a few more modifications, such as an earlier bedtime and implementing a strict “time-out” policy but, in sum, the major catalyst for the tantrums ending involved simply getting down on her physical level (e.g., my hands and knees) and hugging her.

          This was exactly what all the “experts” told us not to do.

          Here’s the deal.

          Nobody really knows what they are doing.

          All children are different. Just because something works for 99.9% of the population doesn’t mean it is a perfect fit for your child.

          Unless you have a rule-following “kid in a box,” you have to do everything you can do until you solve the problem.

          Even if it means doing what the “experts” tell you not to do.

          One of my friends compared parenting to a scratch-off ticket. You just have to keep trying different options until you hit the jackpot.

          And here’s another thing.

          Don’t feel like you are a bad parent just because your kid’s behavior stinks.

          Keep doing your best and it will probably stop.

          Speaking from experience, I felt like a failure that my husband and I couldn’t quickly get a handle on my daughter’s emotions.

          My negative thoughts began snowballing into irrational catastrophes.

          What if she’s nuts? What if this continues and she gets kicked out of school? What if this behavior rubs off on her little sister? What if, what if, what if?

          WhatifwhatifwhatifWHATIF?

          I was going crazy.

          For nothing.

          The tantrums eventually subsided. Don’t get me wrong, she still occasionally has them, but they are age appropriate we are usually able to stop it and notice a correlation to lack of sleep the night before.

          Girl needs her beauty rest.

          Thank God we didn’t rely on the “experts.”

          You know your child better than anyone else. Go with what feels right in your gut.

          Cheers!

           

            Sprouts Farmers Market: Open for Business in Tampa


            Sprouts Farmers Market open in Tampa Bay | The Champagne Supernova

            Holy Cow! Me and Ole Bessie from Dakin Dairy Farms, a featured dairy product available at Sprouts Farmers Market.

            Sprouts Farmers Market proudly sponsored this post. 

            I gotta tell you.

            I routinely work for large and small brands promoting their products in exchange for compensation.

            Hey, the blog ain’t gonna pay for itself. Either will my ombre.

            Sure, I would never push a product or service that I didn’t legitimately like.

            Then, I was introduced to Sprouts Farmers Market and fell in love.

            Never heard of them until two months ago when someone from their public relations team asked me to use my mom blogger skillz to help generate enthusiasm about them coming to Tampa and, specifically, their grand opening in Carrollwood.

            (The Carrollwood Store enjoyed it’s grand opening today, February 22, 2017, and a location will open in South Tampa in May of 2017.)

            I researched the company, felt their mission to make healthy, organic foods more affordable for families using local farmers and businesses, was in line with my own values and agreed. But I had never been to a Sprouts Farmers Market until yesterday when I attended a sneak peek for bloggers.

            And I fell in love.

            In case you missed my other posts, Sprouts Farmers Market is an organic niche grocery store chain that is based in Phoenix. It opened it’s very first Florida store in Carrollwood located at 15110 N. Dale Mabry Highway.

            When I arrived, the store was immaculate and each department was easy to find, so I didn’t have to try to figure out where to go. (The interior is around half the size of a Publix or Sweetbay).

            I took a tour and learned that Sprouts’ fresh produce department made up a quarter of Sprouts‘ total business, with the store carrying nearly 200 organic varieties. Best of all, the prices are roughly 25% less than conventional grocery stores because of the strong relationship Sprouts has with local farmers. For instance, I noticed customers can grab a carton of strawberries for $1 each and a pound of ground beef for $1.99 this week.

            Pretty incredible.

            My favorite area of the store was the cosmetics, wellness, and vitamin department. Most of the products were cruelty-free, vegan, and did not contain toxins like sulfates, parabens, mineral oil, and artificial fragrances. (I’m all into safer skincare.) Even Sprouts’ brand products smelled delicious and were reasonably priced.

            I purchased Sprouts’ brand shampoo for the girls’ and enjoyed bath time tonight when they got to use it for the first time. Smelled amazing.

            Other features that I love about Sprouts is the fresh juice bar, the delicious salad bar (that even contains pre-made wedge salads, certainly unique), and the enormous selection of craft beer, many of it coming from breweries local to Tampa Bay.

            I’ll take all of them. Along with an IV to pump it directly into my blood stream after this crazy week at work.

            If I didn’t have to pick up my kids from school, I easily could have spent a couple hours in the store checking out all of their delicious foods and unique brands.

            I’m so excited to support this business and hope you’ll feel the same way. Check it out this weekend.

            For additional savings, check out Sprouts’ Mobile Coupon program, which makes it even easier to save on Sprouts’ already low prices. All you have to do is download the Sprouts app for Android or iPhone, create an account, digitally clip your coupons, then scan the barcode when you checkout. Easy, peasy. Here is the link.

              Healthy Living: How to Save Money


              How to save money by shopping at Sprouts | The Champagne Supernova

              This post is sponsored with pride by Sprouts Farmers Market.

              Eating healthy, wholesome foods can be expensive.

              With the low price of value meals at popular fast food chains, it’s no wonder so many Americans are out of shape and not feeling their best.

              Fortunately, Sprouts Farmers Market makes it possible to save money while eating well.

              After all, “you work hard for the money… so hard for it, honey!”

              Saving money is easy, and here’s how to do it:

              Join Opening Day Fun. The brand-spanking new Carrollwood location of Sprouts Farmers Market will open to the general public on Wednesday, February 22, 2017, bright and early at 7 a.m. 

              The first 200 shoppers in line (yes, there will likely be a line!) will receive a coupon for 20% off their entire purchase. Don’t worry, the line won’t be that bad because everyone waiting in line before the doors open will receive muffins and coffee samples. Further, every 15th customer at checkout will receive a coupon book of Sprouts savings.

              Deals of the Month. Each month, Sprouts puts out a “Deals of the Month” flyer with additional promotions and coupons. These deals are often seasonally themed and have interesting recipes and tips. You can get these flyers near the entrance of your local Sprouts.

              Tips for how to save money by shopping at Sprouts Farmers Market | The Champagne Supernova

              Sprouts Brand Items. (These are my absolute favorite). Sprouts offers a private label brand which provides an easy, more clearly labeled and affordable way to purchase organic and healthy products. This private label brand offers a great selection of organic and natural products, as well as vegan, gluten-free, and non-GMO varieties.

              Bulk Bins. Fortunately for your wallet, bulk items don’t have the marketing or expensive packaging costs built into the pricing like your conventional brand items. There are tons of available bulk items including several varieties of nuts, beans, fruit, and dried rice… even chocolate to satisfy your sweet tooth. Sprouts also carries 100 assortments of bulk spices for the baking enthusiast.

              Read the Weekly Circular. Every week, Sprouts shares details regarding promotional items in a weekly advertising circular. The circular contains clear images, prices, and product descriptions to assist customers in creating their shopping lists. These ads run for eight days, so when they “double up” on Wednesday, the week of distribution, it’s called “Double Ad Wednesday.”

                Grocery Do-Gooders: Sprouts in the Community


                Ways that Sprouts Farmers Market gives back to the local community | The Champagne Supernova

                Unlike many other grocery and retail chains, Sprouts Farmers Market isn’t just focused on spitting out products and churning a profit.

                It’s also concerned about being a good neighbor.

                The folks at Sprouts know the importance of supporting and giving back to the local communities where it has its stores.

                In furtherance of the objective of giving back to the local communities and small businesses within those communities, Sprouts participates in a local vendor program.

                Two local Sprouts partners include Clear Springs Blueberry and Dakin Dairy Farm.

                Clear Springs Blueberry– located in the nearby city of Bartow, owner Stan Phelps has transformed 18,000 acres of reclaimed phosphate mines into an eco-friendly farming operation. His mission was to use the land to improve the quality of life for nearby residents. Windmills and tail recovery systems have been installed to minimize ground pumping, which is a greener way to farm.

                Dakin Dairy Farm– based in Myakka City, the Dakin Family Dairy has been milking cows and producing delicious, wholesome milk since 1973. As a sustainable farm, Dakin applies their composted manure to over 250 acres of grass. This is because soil enriched with compost reduces water usage and fertilizer needs. How cool is this- grass at Dakin Family Dairy is watered with nutrient-rich water that is recycled from barns. Cows at Dakin Dairy Farm are fed and cared for as organically as possible, with their overall health being the most important concern. This is because a healthy, well-fed cow produces high quality milk- with all the added benefits that come from fresh grass!

                Get excited… other Florida-based brands that will be featured at Sprouts include Bavaro’s, Floribbean, Gator Hammock, Gaucho Ranch, Goldenrod Apiaries Honey, Humanitea, Kombucha Tampa, Mojo Mama, Old Florida Gourmet, Pirate Jonny’s, and Terrapin Ridge Farms.

                Not only does Sprouts support local vendors, but it also participates in a food rescue program.

                This is sick. Did you know that nearly 133 billion pounds of food is wasted every year in the United States. Food retailers are responsible for nearly 42 billion of those pounds. Sprouts believes we have an obligation to respect our communities and the planet through waste reduction initiatives designed to significantly reduce and divert our waste.

                Ways that Sprouts Farmers Market gives back to the local community | The Champagne Supernova

                What does Sprouts do to further this mission against waste? All groceries that are edible but not fit for sale are donated to local hunger relief agencies within the community. Most of these agencies are affiliated with Feeding America, the largest hunger relief organization in the United States. These agencies then distribute this food to people in need in our communities. The local partner for the Tampa region of Sprouts is Feeding Tampa Bay.

                In 2016, Sprouts donated approximately 18 million pounds of product through the Food Rescue Program to people in need. This equates to 15 million meals. 

                If Sprouts deems the food unfit for donation, it is either composted to create products used to enrich soil for agriculture and community gardens or it is provided to farms for animal feed.

                No waste there!

                I love knowing that when I shop and Sprouts, I’m investing in a company that gives back to the Tampa Bay community.

                Cheers!

                 

                  Sprouts Brand Products: Affordability without Compromising Quality

                  This post is sponsored by Sprouts Farmers Market. But I love them. So there’s that. 

                  When I was a kid, I hated when my mother came home from the grocery store with “off-brand” items.

                  At thirteen, I was stuck up and I didn’t even know it.

                  Now as a working mom, I realize the value of a dollar and understand that when you pay more money for brand name items, you’re also paying for that brand’s advertising.

                  “I work hard for my money… so hard for it, honey!”

                  I also realize that buying grocery store brands doesn’t require you to compromise the quality of the product.

                  Fortunately, with Sprouts Brand, I can always count on top quality and great taste. With more than 2,100 products to choose from throughout the store and new items routinely arriving, you’re bound to find new favorites every single time you go shopping.

                  Below are some of my favorite go-to Sprouts products illustrating their great brand products.

                  I use these organic cotton balls to safely remove makeup and this green chile mac & cheese suits even the pickiest of eaters.

                    Mom’s Best Friend: Persil ProClean


                    This post is sponsored by Persil ProClean, but all opinions are my own. 

                    The struggle to keep my daughters’ school uniforms clean is no joke.

                    They routinely come home from school with their clothes stained from whatever kept them busy that day.

                    Grass.

                    Markers.

                    Glue.

                    Leftover spaghetti that was in their lunch.

                    While the stains symbolize the fun times they had at school that day, they also made me crazy because, until I discovered Persil ProClean, I couldn’t find a detergent that legitimately removed all the stains.

                    I was always left with a faded stain that I hoped their teachers or friends wouldn’t notice.

                    Until I discovered Persil ProClean, I was left with two choices: either send my kids to school in slightly stained clothing, or keep replacing their uniforms with new ones.

                    Ain’t nobody got time (or money) for that.

                    It wasn’t until my mother recently told me about Persil ProClean while she was attempting to remove the stains from my daughters’ uniforms that I had ever heard of it, let alone appreciated its cleaning power.

                    Seeing was truly believing.

                    To demonstrate the cleaning capacity of Persil ProClean with its powerful stain removing formula, I washed my kids’ clothes after making crafts in preparation for Game Day.

                    Because isn’t this the ultimate stain-causing event?

                    Before I discovered Persil ProClean, I would strip my kids down to their skivvies before they were allowed to get messy. After, I would just throw them in the tub.

                    No harm.

                    Now with Persil ProClean, I don’t have to worry about their clothes getting stained.

                    No stain is too much of a challenge.

                    Here are photos of my girls making fun Game Day crafts using the ultimate stain-causing culprits: markers, glitter, paint, and glue.
