Treat your clothes better with Tide® PODS™ + Downy®

This is a sponsored post; however all opinions are my own.
 

I’ve been doing laundry for years. Okay… decades!!! if I’m really being honest. It was a weekly ritual to drive down to the laundromat with my mom on Mondays to get it done. Thankfully, I have a washer and dryer at home so the laundry routine isn’t so bad anymore, and I found a way to make it even easier with Tide® PODS™ + Downy® packets. I’ve found that not only is the laundry routine easier, but I’m treating my clothes better too.

My most recent clothing acquisition was a skirt and a pair of pants from prAna. It’s sustainable clothing and so I feel amazing wearing them. However, I do want them to last for a very, very long time because they quickly became a favorite of mine. So I turned to Tide® PODS™ + Downy®.

Tide® PODS™ + Downy® are convenient little laundry packets that allow you to facilitate the laundry process – all you have to do is drop them in the machine before your clothes. If you have a regular load, all you need is one. If you have an extra large load (yes, thank you family) then use three packets. Although I usually wash in cold water, the Tide® PODS™ packets will also dissolve in hot water – AND they work in both high-efficiency and regular washers!

Of course, with great care of your laundry comes great responsibility. These awesome laundry packets are just like other household cleaning products, so they need to be handled with great care to prevent unintended exposure. The best rule of thumb is this – “Keep Them Up, Keep Them Closed and Keep Them Safe.”

I have a shelf above my washer and that’s where I like to keep my packets. It’s convenient for me to reach and use, but not so much for the kids and pets to access.

And going back to the actual product, I found a new favorite in Tide® PODS™ + Downy®. These little detergent packets are the first to be designed to both clean AND protect clothes from stretching and fading in the wash cycle. And because I tend to wear a lot of dark colors, this is especially important to me. I’m not exactly sure of the science behind the product, but I do know that the innovative 3-chamber design allows for use with fabrics that traditionally cannot be washed with fabric softeners (like performance and fitness apparel a.k.a. my every day outfits).

And did I mention how amazing it smells? It does… the scent I have is April Fresh and I discovered that the scent lingers days after I’ve washed the clothes with the packets. I can’t tell you how great this is with two young boys and a man at home.

New attractions at SeaWorld San Diego

This event was sponsored by SeaWorld San Diego.
 

The Hubster and I took the chiclets to San Diego for the day to check out the new attractions at SeaWorld San Diego. We had a fabulous time and left us wanting more (and it was a completely different experience from our last SeaWorld visit).

What's new at SeaWorld San Diego - LivingMiVidaLoca.com

We started our day visiting with the penguins and dolphins. Seeing the animals up close is our favorite part of visiting SeaWorld San Diego because it brings the experience to life. They currently have add-ons that you can purchase separately and both of these experiences are items on that list.

We went on to feed the sea lions and Dine with Shamu (an experience we had on our first SeaWorld visit) before moving on to the new attractions! We were super excited because we had only heard and read about the new happenings at SeaWorld (some are some new they haven’t opened yet!).

New Attractions at SeaWorld San Diego

SeaWorld San Diego just rolled out the biggest new attractions lineup in the park’s 53-year history. The new expansion allows guests to play more, learn more and do more (just as we did during our weekend getaway).

Ocean Explorer

Ocean Explorer is an area at the park that gives you the illusion of being in the sea. The colors are vibrant, the vibe is mellow, yet festive at the same time, and the area also includes new park rides that are great for families. There’s also Submarine Quest (for which there was a long wait) that blends gaming with learning as you go through the ride. The chiclets loved this ride and it would be great to go on it again and again to see if you level up. Note that this ride is not currently offered as part of the Quick Queue, though there might be plans of it being added later.

Submarine Quest - LivingMiVidaLoca.com

Ocean Explorer has five new children’s rides and three new animal encounters. There’s even a spot where children can crawl through the exhibit and peek through the plastic domes on the exhibit. The new area is conveniently located by the Orca Encounter – one of the new attractions at SeaWorld San Diego.

Orca Encounter

This summer, SeaWorld San Diego debuted the all-new, inspiring Orca Encounter. The experience is “based on killer whale behavior in the wild—how they move, hunt and navigate, what they eat, and even how they communicate.” It’s narrated and shown in a very documentary type of way with the orcas demonstrating the behavior as the narrator describes it. It’s surreal and keeps you wanting more.

The stage is beautiful and features a giant screen that rotates scenes as they show goes on. It’s really quite the show to see, and spots do fill up fast – especially in the splash zone. And just so you know, the splash zone is not a hint… it’s a warning. The orcas come around and do some big splashes during the show.

I would suggest you see the show sometime before or after lunch, when you’re ready for a snack. Vendors come around with goodies that you can enjoy in souvenir cups.

Guests also have the option to check out All Day Orca during the Summer. This isn’t so much of a show because there isn’t any one host. You do, however, get to see the orcas play when they’re in between shows. What’s fun about this exhibit is that you can chat live with orca behaviorists and educators. It’s another great opportunity to learn more about these gorgeous animals.

Electric Ocean

Unfortunately we didn’t get a chance to see this new show, but SeaWorld San Diego promises to be full of energy.

As the sun sets, Electric Ocean will light up SeaWorld with an ocean of brilliance and vibrant energy that will transform the park into an underwater world of colorful luminescence. This new, nighttime summer spectacular will immerse guests in a glowing sea of wonder with bioluminescent-like lighting, a dance club and pathway entertainment. Electric Ocean kicks off June 17 and runs on select dates through Sept. 4.

We had a fantastic visit and it felt like we were peeling another layer to the park. There was so much to see, and this time we even went on a few rides that we’ve never been on before. Our entire visit almost felt like a hybrid between a field trip and a family outing because we learned so much.

Family visits at SeaWorld San Diego - LivingMiVidaLoca.com

If you’re visiting the San Diego area this Summer, make sure you plan a visit to SeaWorld San Diego and enjoy everything that the resort has to offer. To facilitate your visit, you can schedule animal experiences via the SeaWorld website. I would also recommend experiencing Dine with Shamu because it has a delicious buffet where you can also see the orcas star in their own show. If you can’t do Dine with Shamu, then make sure you check out their all-day dining where you can get 1 entrée, 1 side or dessert, and 1 non-alcohol beverage as often as once every hour for one low price (currently $35.99 /adult and $18.99/child (ages 3-9). You can’t beat those dining prices!

See you at SeaWorld San Diego!

prAna : Weekend Wear + prAna Discount Code

This is a compensated campaign in collaboration with the prAna and #WeAllGrow Latina Network.
 

We celebrated the long weekend by filling it with family bonding experiences that included the Hubster, the chiclets and a few days of extended family as well. We had a fabulous time celebrating life, love and family. As we tend to move from errand to experiences rather quickly, I opted to wear comfortable clothing by prAna that not only looks and feels amazing… it’s sustainable!!!

prAna sustainable clothing discount code - LivingMiVidaLoca.com

I have been aware of prAna for a while now, but it wasn’t until I partnered with them that I really connected with the story of this Southern California brand and their people. I watched video after video on why they do what they do, and as I walked around in my prAna clothes, I felt pride for choosing clothes that inspire healthy, active and free-spirited living.

One weekend morning was spent at the local swap meet where me and my familia spent a few hours walking around, picking up some Mexican goods, drinking agua frescas and buying second-hand books. Lots and lots of books. We tend to visit the swap meet at least once a month when we need to fill up our bookshelves with new (to us) books, or need to buy something for our home that might be better buying second-hand. I grew up selling at the swap meet, and now that I have my own chiclets, I feel it’s important for them to understand the importance of sustainability and doing more for our environment.

It seemed fitting that I would wear a skirt made by a brand that supports Fair Trade standards as we shopped, supporting families that have their own businesses. It made me feel even better knowing that my skirt was made by a company who ensures that garment workers have safe working conditions, a voice in the workplace, higher earnings, and that women are treated equally. It seems like these rights would come naturally, but unfortunately they are not, especially in countries where garments are produced.

The prAna Lizbeth skirt fit perfectly too. I typically wear a size 4 in skirts, but opted to go with a size 6 because I wanted to wear it lower on my hips. I’m so happy with my decision! The fabric is lightweight, has a cute slit on the side and it looked great with sandals. I love the neutral color and it gets major bonus points for real pockets – and ones where I can fit my iPhone! It’s a great length for wearing out with the chiclets because I’m not constantly tugging at it, and the low pleats make it on trend as well.

We left for the day with new second hand treasures ready to fill our home and we planned for our next adventure… taking in a drive-in movie with extended family.

Lizbeth prAna skirt - LivingMiVidaLoca.com

We watch a lot of films, and while we do enjoy watching them at the theatre, sometimes we like to switch it up by going to the drive-in theatre. We pack our snacks, invite family, and head out about two hours before the film starts to get the best spots and let the kids get some play time.

Mission Tiki Inn Drive-in - LivingMiVidaLoca.com

The sun was just going down when we pulled in to our spot. We unloaded scooters, skateboards, a corn hole game and chairs before settling in for the film. I loved watching the kids go up and down the aisle laughing with each other and playing tag. It’s those care-free days that I, as a parent, hope that they’ll remember as they get older.

For this outing I chose to go with the prAna Mantra pant and a basic black tee tied at the waist. I read all the reviews before ordering these pants and they all mentioned the length… and they were ALL right!!! These pants are long.

I love them. It’s not often that I get pants that are so long that I can wear wedges or anything like that with them. These pants? I am not getting them hemmed because that’s exactly what I plan on doing. Although for this outing I just went with sandals… because who wears high heels to the drive-in?

prAna sustainable clothing with discount code - LivingMiVidaLoca.com

I love the deep pockets and the simple drawstring around the thick band. The organic material feels super light and I received compliments from my whole family on the fit. They all mentioned how comfortable they looked! I could totally see myself wearing these to lounge around the house, and for dinner out on the town. They’re super versatile.

prAna pants weekend outfit - LivingMiVidaloca.com

I tend to go with very basic colors because I like to get dressed quickly. For these pants, I wanted to get a color that would go well with just about anything.  The pants do not come in number sizes, so I opted to go with medium (it’s what I wear in tops). It worked for me! It’s made largely with hemp, making lightweight and breathable. It washes well, and because prAna blend theirs with other materials like organic cotton, recycled polyester, and spandex, it doesn’t wrinkle as much as linen does. Great for women who are constantly on-the-go.

We had such a fantastic weekend, and I basically lived in sustainable comfort every day thanks to prAna. I can’t wait to pick up some more goodies from their Summer line, like this Nari halter dress. I’ll use my prAna discount code (WAGLNPC) and get an additional 15% off. If you shop online… you can use it too!

I encourage you to visit and shop prAna.com. They offer a great catalog of sustainable clothing for both women AND men… and I hear their workout clothes are pretty fantastic too (that’s next on my list).

Knott’s Soak City Destination Guide

We visited Knott’s Soak City on opening day, thankful for a day of sunshine that allowed us to hang out at the waterpark stress-free until closing time. It was such a great experience that we put together this Knott’s Soak City Destination Guide to make your visit easy, as it was for us.

Knott's Soak City Destination Guide - LivingMiVidaLoca.com

We arrived at the waterpark early. Super early. That’s probably my number one tip because Soak City is very popular in the summer so it gets really packed. Our family has two younger chiclets (ages 9 and 6) so we skipped the more kiddie area (Gremmie Lagoon) and instead opted for the new rides! Yup… this season, Knott’s Soak City expanded their awesome waterpark.

Knott's Soak City Destination Guide - LivingMiVidaLoca.com

The waterpark debuted seven new slides on two new slide towers, Shore Break and The Wedge, as well as a fully remodeled Longboard’s Grill (their largest dining area), additional seating areas and new spacious cabanas. So if you visited Knott’s Soak City last year, you’ll find this year to be a whole new experience.

Knott's Soak City Destination Guide - LivingMiVidaLoca.com

Knott's Soak City Destination Guide - LivingMiVidaLoca.com

The six year old is 48″ tall so we were able to ride both The Wedge (a great family ride as it accommodates up to six riders) and the tube slides at Shore Break. The family ride has a longer wait line, but it’s also a longer ride. We didn’t get a chance to do Shore Break, the one where the floor drops from beneath the rider’s feet sending them on a high speed free fall down a 60-foot tall slide. It sounds crazy… and it was. Just ask the Hubster.

Knott's Soak City Destination Guide - LivingMiVidaLoca.com

>> TIP: Have your child’s height measured at customer service and they’ll receive a wristband to wear that will clear them for rides, based on their height. <<

We opted to do the mega slides early in the day so the rest of the day we could do more of the no-lines required fun, like Tidal Wave Bay, the Beach House and the lazy river (did you know that it’s about a third of a mile long?).

Of course, we left plenty of time to just chill out and relax under the shaded areas too. Because we arrived early, we were able to get some of the lounge chairs in front of Longboard’s Grill. There’s a lot of seating available as well as cabanas. If you’re looking for a more beachy vibe, I would suggest parking it on the grassy areas. Just bring your sport-brella (or other outdoor umbrella).

We filled up during lunch at Longboard’s Grill and I was ecstatic to see that they had vegetarian hot dogs. I mean, I’ve never seen this offering at a theme park before, let alone a waterpark! Inside Longboard’s Grill there is a self-serve station where you can top your burgers and hot dogs. I piled mine with jalapeños, tomatoes and onions. It was like a vegetarian Mexican hot dog… and with my side of onion rings? Yuuuum.

Knott's Soak City Destination Guide - LivingMiVidaLoca.com

Our day was so chill that it made me feel like I was in my own piece of paradise. We just lounged around and bonded as a family as we braved the water slides. Thank goodness we have Knott’s season passes because I fully plan on making more Soak City days happen this summer. I might even rent a cabana just because it includes a waiter and inner tube rentals.

Knott’s Soak City Destination Guide

What to pack for Knott’s Soak City

I tend to travel with the least amount of products as possible. So the list below is for the minimalist who wants to enjoy a day at the waterpark without carrying too much stuff. Also for minimalists without babies.

  • Sunscreen – I recommend Neutrogena’s Beach Defense sunscreen because it has SPF 70 and does an amazing job at keeping tan lines at bay.
  • sport-brella (or other outdoor umbrella) if you want to set up your family in a grassy area. Grassy areas are right outside Longboard’s Grill and around Gremmie Lagoon.
  • Water bottles in a small cooler measuring no more than 12″x18′
  • Reusable Knott’s Berry Farm souvenir cup – there are three refill stations throughout the park.
  • Towels – Knott’s does not have towel service. Bring one for each lounge chair that you want reserved.
  • waterproof phone case and FREE wifi throughout the park will let you stay connected while you’re in line, floating on the lazy river, or just hanging out on a lounge chair.
  • Shoes and sandals are not allowed on rides, but bring them along anyway because the ground is hot – especially on the bridge.
  • Rent an inner tube for $10/day. Inner tube rental is included with cabana rentals as well.
  • Sunglasses and hats

There you have it – everything you HAVE to have for a day at the waterpark. If you like to film your adventures, Knott’s Soak City does allow you to bring along a waterproof camera on the rides (I have a TomTom Bandit action camera and it’s great for these types of water rides) – just leave the selfie sticks at home.

Where to eat at Knott’s Soak City

Looking for a spot to sit and relax? Then head to Longboard’s Grill. They offer standard picnic food with gluten-free options and vegetarian hot dogs! Ask for them at the counter. Pick up your food cafeteria style and head outside to their tables. They’re not bolted down so feel free to move them around to accommodate larger parties.

Knott's Soak City Destination Guide - LivingMiVidaLoca.com

Closer to the entrance you’ll see smaller dining spots including Portside Pizza and Surf Daddy’s Food Hut. Portside Pizza offers delicious pizza and it’s the only spot at Soak City where you can get a funnel cake. Surf Daddy’s Food Hut offers easy grab and go snacks like pretzels, churros and salads.

Want a cold treat? You’ll find a create-your-own ICEE station in front of Tidal Wave Pool – right next to one of three refill stations (don’t forget your refillable souvenir bottles). There’s also Dippin’ Dots and cotton candy carts around the park.

TIP: Gold and Platinum Season Passholders can use their All Season Dining Plans at Knott’s Soak City at all three dining locations (Longboard’s Grill, Portside Pizza and Surf Daddy’s Food Hut). All Day Dining is also available.

Customizable bike helmets for kids : Wipeout Gear

This is a sponsored post in partnership with Wipeout Gear, customizable bike helmets for kids.

Earlier this year we realized that our youngest chiclet had no idea how to ride a bike. Seriously. He’s five and he had never learned to ride a bike! Feeling like we weren’t doing our part, we headed to the store and bought him a bike. Now he’s a pro (as long as the training wheels are on) and we’re ready to take the bikes out on family rides. Of course, we’re all about “safety first” so we picked up some Wipeout Gear (bike helmets for kids and protective gear) to get ready for the road as we celebrate Bike Safety Month during the month of May. Our goal is to get at least one bike ride in on the weekends during May so we can make it a habit, and do it as often throughout the year.

Customizable bike helmets for kids are great for kids because they're customizable! - LivingMiVidaLoca.com

Thankfully, my youngest chiclet has never given me issues about wearing protective gear, but the thing is that he likes variety. He LOVES to color, customize and stand out… and his new customizable bike helmet, the Wipeout Dry Erase helmet, and protective gear checks all those boxes.

Wipeout Gear Helmet and Accessory Set are great for kids because they're customizable! - LivingMiVidaLoca.com

Wipeout Gear Helmet and Accessory Set are great for kids because they're customizable! - LivingMiVidaLoca.com

The Wipeout Dry Erase Helmet package includes the Dry Erase helmet, 5 Dry Erase markers in assorted neon colors and 8 stencil designs. The sturdy and stylish helmet is made of ABS hard-shell construction with an EPS liner for durability. It is certified for safety protection for roller sports, including biking, skateboarding, roller-skating and scooters, for kids ages 3 to 14. Helmet sizes: 3+ (47-49cm), 5+ (49-52cm) and 8+ (52-56cm). Colors include Black, Teal, Neon Pink and Zest (a neon yellow-green), among others. Wipeout Dry Erase Protective 3-Pack includes kneepads, wrist guards, elbow pads, and 2 markers.

When I chose out his gear I was worried that his drawing wouldn’t show up. The gear comes in different colors, but I love the color black so that’s what he got. And in all honesty, I was all for getting the helmet because I know that he needs that to protect his head; I wasn’t too sure about the rest of the gear. The chiclets had never had kneepads, elbow pads or wrist guards. I always thought that it would make it harder for them to move their bodies with the gear on. I was wrong. So wrong.

Wipeout Gear Helmet and Accessory Set are great for kids because they're customizable! - LivingMiVidaLoca.com

Turns out that the protective gear conforms to his body in a way that doesn’t inhibit him from peddling or controlling the handle bars! I was happy to be wrong because now I know that if he does fall, he’ll be protected.

Wipeout Gear Helmet and Accessory Set are great for kids because they're customizable! - LivingMiVidaLoca.com

As far as customizing the gear… well that was icing on the cake. Both the chiclets got into it and they drew their favorite characters, symbols, quotes and they also used the stencils that came with the helmet. In all actuality, they spent more time customizing their gear than riding their bikes that day. But that’s okay because they didn’t wipe off their drawing which means that next time they might add just a few more doodles before heading out.

Seeing them work together on customizing the gear was a favorite moment of mine. I love how they worked together and made it their own.

I would definitely recommend picking up Wipeout Gear for your chiclets, or as gifts. They’re age appropriate for kids of all ages and they look cool enough for even the pickiest chiclet.
