Packing lunches for school and work it is not always easy. You need to get creative to make sure your kids do not get bored with their lunches. You also need to make sure there is no spills and the food is at the right temperature.
I got some products to review and they are great for everyone in the family. Drinks and lunches will be easy to carry on your lunch box and you will be able to take salads and fruit without any fear of them going bad. Also water and drinks will be cold (or hot) for long hours.
The 14 ounce double wall hot & cold hydration mug is great for hot and cold drinks. So you can carry your coffee hot or iced. It is perfect for teas and juices. To drink, you tap the top of the lid and then drink from the side. Tap again and the lid will be closed with no spills. Due to the double insulation there will not wet papers or clothes on your purse.
The 20 Ounce Double Wall Flavor Infuser Tumbler is great as an infuser to add any flavor to your water. You can place any combination of fruits on the removable flavor container. The combinations are endless.
The Seven (7) piece laptop iced Bento lunch box has sections that allow to pack different foods and since the lid seals tight there will be no spills. The lid has a gel cold pack that will keep your food cold and it comes with a spoon and a fork that fit in the container.

about the movie
did we like it?
“Strange Magic,” a new animated film from Lucasfilm Ltd., is a madcap fairy tale musical inspired by “A Midsummer Night's Dream.” Popular songs from the past six decades help tell the tale of a colorful cast of goblins, elves, fairies and imps, and their hilarious misadventures sparked by the battle over a powerful potion. Lucasfilm Animation Singapore and Industrial Light & Magic bring to life the fanciful forest turned upside down with world-class animation and visual effects. Directed by Gary Rydstrom (“Toy Story Toons: Hawaiian Vacation,” “Lifted”) from a story by George Lucas, “Strange Magic” will be released by Touchstone Pictures on Jan. 23, 2015.
When you here that the movie executive-producer is George Lucas you know you are in a great time. Although there is no light-sabers and the story does not take place in a galaxy far, far away, the story line is as the name of the movie say it itself: Magical. Not only the animation is wonderful but the message of true love, perseverance and friendship is something that people of all ages will enjoy. And let me tell you that the soundtrack is awesome. The movie has so many well-known pop songs that it is hard not to dance and sing along as you are watching it.
