The Family that Cooks Together with Uncle Ben’s Ready Rice… Can WIN!

When families cook together, something magical happens. Not only are you enjoying quality time, but a beautiful and delicious dish comes out of it, as well! My son (who will be 5 in 2 days – cannot believe it!) LOVES helping in the kitchen, and I encourage it because there’s so much bonding that happens when you put together breakfast, lunch, or dinner as a family. Ben’s Beginners was created to inspire children to cook in the kitchen to help them understand what they’re putting into their bodies to get them healthier. Not only that, it stimulates children to eat their own creation because they feel a sense of pride and achievement when they see the completed dish as their meal. Uncle Ben’s Ready Rice makes meal time preparation simple and delicious, and it’s my ingredient of choice in my creamy rice casserole.

ColourPop Terracotta Fall Edit will Have YOU Right on Trend

As you probably have already been seeing, the trend these days is PUMPKIN SPICE. Not only for your lattes, but for clothes and makeup, as well! I’m all for pumpkin spice, and I do love to sprinkle it on breakfast items, but I also LOVE the pumpkin spice shades of terracotta and burnt orange.

Take a Pledge® to Inspire Yourself to Clean in 4 Ways

Cleaning. If you were to ask my mother about my love-hate relationship with cleaning, she’d have some great (and hilarious) stories for all of you, but that’s for another time – maybe! I’ve always had my own method of cleaning (perfect or not), and it’s always worked for me. But, yes, just like anybody else, I’m not always too excited about cleaning, but I do know that my home is a reflection of me. I have learned to use my top 4 ways to inspire myself to clean, so let me inspire you!


Inspiration #1: My home is where I rest my head and make memories. Each and every little item in my home holds special value in my heart. Pledge® products inspire me to clean, because with only a couple of products, the whole house can be presentable as not every home can be a magazine-worthy home. Also, I can trust Pledge® to clean most surfaces (for example, my favorite ottoman, the coffee table made of wood AND glass, and even electronics around the house) and even accessories around the house, which allows me to cherish my items just as they are!


The Pledge® Lemon Wipes use Allergen Trappers® to remove dust and up to 90% of the allergens found in dust. I love that it leaves behind a lemony fresh scent and cleans, conditions, and protects the furniture and items I love!

Pledge® Orange Clean Furniture Spray is a citrus-scented cleaner that not only cleans wood, but also laminate, stainless steel, leather, marble, granite and plastic, making it versatile. The Pledge® Orange Clean Furniture Spray also uses Allergen Trappers® keeping your home practically allergen-free.

Pledge® Multi Surface Everyday Cleaner with Glade® Rainshower® is an all-purpose cleaner that also cleans a variety of surfaces, such as wood, laminate, stainless steel, leather, marble, granite, plastic, porcelain, glass and electronics while keeping finishes just as they were before.


Inspiration #2: Be chic. Cleaning can be a little more fun when you put on a fun lipstick (and maybe even a headband) to wear around the house to perk up your attitude. Pull your hair back, use a little elbow grease, and don’t forget to smile!!




Fred Meyer is one of my favorite, ultimate one-stop-shops, and their cleaning supplies aisle has ALL the Pledge® items I use on my cleaning days! Since they carry cosmetics as well, I find my cleaning “face” products, “hair” solutions, and then finally, the Pledge® products (in the cleaning supplies aisle) that I need to get my home to be a reflection of me!


Inspiration #3: Imagine how amazing your house will look once you’ve cleaned!! Each piece of decor holds an important story, such as my white elephants, which I found and fell madly in love with. My dear mother-in-law told me that if you find an elephant figurine with its trunk up, it brings good luck, and this brought me to purchase it and keep it on display. I do my best to keep them looking their best by cleaning them with Pledge® products so that they can maintain their beauty and continue as a reflection of me. Pledge® products protect all surfaces of my house, so that they are mostly allergen free, spotless, and remain special!


Inspiration #4: Once you’ve cleaned, help yourself to a reward. My favorite post-cleaning treat? An iced coffee! You earned it, so reward yourself to a job well done, and enjoy your clean house, thanks to Pledge®.



Pledge® takes care of and protects the things you love! What inspires YOU to clean?
