My blog post was written as part of my collaboration with eBay, all opinions are my own.
Mother's Day is coming soon, and if your mom is anything like mine, she is incredibly hard to buy for. When I try to think of the perfect gift idea for my mom, I often start with the hobbies or things that she likes most, and go from there. My mom for as long as I can remember has loved to bake, she also loves sparkly jewelry (something my sisters inherited, but somehow I missed the gene for.) So, as part of my campaign as an eBay influencer, I created two eBay collections on these interests, from their Mother's Day Gift Guide to help me shop.

I participated in the #SiennaDiaries blogger program, but all opinions are my own.
We had the pleasure of driving a 2014 Toyota Sienna for a few months as part of the #SiennaDiaries blogging program. As someone who has never owned a brand new vehicle, it was quite a treat, and honestly, our family is still in mourning a bit after giving it back. I find myself missing features that the Sienna had, and even reaching out to use them every so often, like the buttons you could press to easily open the back doors, or the radio controls on the steering wheel. Little features like this made the Sienna a dream to drive.

I was provided with a complimentary tour or the purpose of review, but all opinions are my own.
Every once in a while in life, you come across an experience so unbelievable that it is not likely to be replicated again in your lifetime. My trip out into the Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary on a Fast Raft Ocean Safari earlier this month was one such experience. In fact, even now, it is hard for me to believe it happened and that I actually came literally face to face with two humpback whales. If you are looking for the best way to get out and explore wildlife including sea lions, sea otters, harbor seals and of course whales, up close and personal, I can promise you, there is no better way to do it than on Fast Raft's boat, Ranger.
