Make Life Easier with Hickies {No Tie Laces}

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Hickies and USFamilyGuide. All opinions are always my own.

As a parent we spend countless number of hours tying, untying, retying and removing knots from dozens of our kids shoes, as well as our own. I am here with something that will make your life easier. How you ask? What if I told you that you NEVER had to tie shoes again?


Hickies are flexible rubber straps that you lace your shoes with. You clasp them together and done! Yes that is it. Just slip on your shoes and go. They come in adult and child sizes, as well as different styles and colors. They are customizable so can lace any way you want. Prefer the normal, lace as usual with white or black. Want to change it up a bit? Try a criss cross or bright neon colors. No matter your style there is something for everyone.



Works in any shoe with eyelets.

One size fits all.

Elastic material keeps shoes secure and comfortable.

Never tie again! Play uninterrupted.

Fun look, without messy knots and bows.

Adjustable tightness.

Quick and easy – simply slip on and off.


My daughter is so close at getting shoe tying down, but still needs me to help on the last step. Often times she comes for help when we are late and frantically trying to make it out the door for a class or appointment. Hickies have made my mom life SO MUCH EASIER! I really wish I had found these earlier.

For the love of your patience and sanity mom or dad get a pair or two, heck even grab some for yourself.

Here’s a little more about Swag IQ:

Monday through Thursday they broadcast a live game. Simply tune-in at the appointed time by launching the SwagIQ app and log-in with your Swagbucks account credentials. The game show host will ask a series of multiple-choice trivia questions. You’ll have 10 seconds to answer each one.

Get it right; you get SB (points you can use to get gift cards) and move on. Answer them all correctly and you can win a grand prize! If more than one player wins, the winners split the grand prize.

Get it wrong; still play along. Some questions have an SB award attached to them. If you answer those questions correctly, you get SB, even if you’re out of the running for the big money. And, if you’re in a groove but miss a question, you’ll have the option to rejoin a game by redeeming a few SB.

Have fun!

If you are a winner be sure to come back and share your winnings! I love seeing your shares.

The Reason For The Season! Jesus Calling: The Story of Christmas Children’s Book Review

Christmas is quickly approaching, between the shopping and gifts it can be easy for you to forget the true meaning of Christmas.

“The Virgin will be pregnant. She will have a son, and they will name him Immanuel.” This name means “God is with us.”– Matthew 1:23


Long before the Virgin Mary was ever with child we were told that our Lord and Saviour would be born. And save us from our sins, to have eternal life in Heaven.

I am so very blessed and thankful that I am able to share the true meaning of Christmas with my children. The story of our Lord and Saviour being born still gives me chills, just thinking about his start and ending of life here on Earth. But know that he is still with us everywhere we go and one day we’ll be together. It reminds me on lucky we are and reminds me of how grateful I am for everything.


Jesus Calling: The Story of Christmas is on my list of MUST HAVE Christmas books.  It is a hardcover book with sleeve written by Sarah Young and illustrated by Katya Longhi. The front over shows the scene of little baby Jesus along with his mother and father on that wonderful night in the manger.

The book starts at creation through the birth of Jesus and his life in Nazareth. Each page starts with a Bible verse and then briefly tells the story, along with wonderful illustrations pertaining to the story.

This book is so beautifully illustrated and reminds us that Jesus is the reason for the season.

Believe in the Lord Jesus and you will be saved.– Acts 1:31

I highly recommend this book for the whole family this Christmas. You can grab a copy at the link below.

May God bless you and your family today and everyday! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
