Dr. Seuss’ Birthday and Hats Off to Reading this month!!

Dr. Seuss’s 111th Birthday was this past March 2nd but SoCal City Kids has decided to celebrate the whole month of March! Reading is such an important thing and when I think of reading at an early age..I think Of Dr. Seuss!

Are you looking to celebrate this month? What better way then with costumes and birthday celebration decorations?

My favorite are the costumes at They have the best costumes for both kids and adults! I love the Adult Tutu costume ( includes: T-shirt, tutu, and headband), the Fuzzy Glovettes and the Dr. Seuss Graduation Cap!

Looking for a fun place to visit and stay overnight this upcoming Spring? The Queen Mary is a great place for families! My family visited last week and had a lot of fun! My favorite thing was the different tours and the view. My son really enjoyed the New Model Ship Gallery. In this gallery some of the finest ship models in the world tell the story of the evolution of trans-Atlantic passenger ship travel from 1840 to the present. It is located on the Promenade Deck, Starboard Forward near the Promenade Cafe. It is available as part of any of their fantastic Tour packages. We enjoyed the Historic First-Class Passport on our stay but there are different packages available. What is really like best about the Queen Mary is that there really is something for everyone. The Scorpion Submarine was also a hit with my 11-year old son and I had actually never seen it before. I found it very interesting! The Queen Mary also has great packages available and you can check them out at

Although this ship doesn’t actually move, the view is great and it’s like you are really away on a vacation! The service, the view, the tours….so much to do! You can also, get off the Queen Mary at night and enjoy Long Beach. It’s the perfect place to spend a night or two!

To find out more about the Queen Mary, check out the website! I also find the history so amazing!

Salonpas is a great way to manage pain! Giveaway Opportunity!


Looking for a healthier solution for pain management? There is one that is available in topical analgesic products in the form of creams, gels, sprays and patches. We recently received products from Salonpas to try out. The products included: Salonpas Deep Relieving Gel, Salonpas Pain Relief Patch, Salonpas Pain Relieving GEL-Patch HOT-L, and Salonpas Pain Relieving Jet Spray. I had my husband try these products out and he was impressed with how well they worked especially for being over the counter products. One of my husband’s favorites was the Salonpas Jet Spray. It freezes pain fast and really is quick drying. It is also easy to use and lasted up to 8 hours of relief. I like that these products are a much healthier way to manage pain.

Check out the website for more information:
