Color Vibe 5k coming to the Ohio: October 10th

Ya’ all know I get so excited about 5k’s that involve anything messy – from mud to color! There’s just something about the fun of running through it all and laughing with your friends that makes a 5k seem so much easier – fun and fitness wrapped all in one.

So when I heard about The Color Vibe 5k coming to Middletown this weekend, I had to sign up! We had our fill of color runs and 5k’s this Spring, so I was surprised to find out that we had one locally in the fall!


The Color Vibe is all for fun – you don’t have to raise money, or get contributions in order to participate. Although Color Vibe is a for-profit event, they do partner with local charities and non-profit organizations in each city that they hold their events in and they receive a portion of the proceeds (depending on the size and involvement in the 5k)


So gather up your friends (and your kids – they can run too! Kids 12 and under are FREE with paid adult registration) and come get your fun on with us this Saturday in Middletown! Register by midnight on 10/7 before the price goes up!

Color Vibe is giving one lucky All in a Days Work reader a FREE entry into the race this Saturday!All you have to do is retweet the message below,and we will select a winner using on Thurday evening – just in time to pick up your packet on Friday and be prepared for the race!

Side Hustle: How I Earn Extra Money at Home on Fiverr

This is a sponsored post on behalf of Fiverr in partnership with Kasai Media. Though I was compensated for my time, all opinions, as usual, are my own.

Being a blogger has become a wonderful second income for me and my family – and I have a ton of friends and family who ask how they can get started. Being a blogger takes a lot of time to get going and a ton of hours (I’m not gonna’  lie, it’s after 10 on a Monday night as I’m writing this, and I’ll probably be up a few more hours – and then getting up to go to work in the a.m. too!) So I always recommend that my friends  start out doing some VA work ; so you can start generating income immediately and one of the best way to do that is to get set up on Fiverr.


In case you weren’t familiar, Fiverr is a website where you can sell (or buy)  services from a wide array of talented people. You can buy services like SEO services, articles, customized logos, videos, and more! Services start as small as  $5 each, and can increase based on what services you chose from the sellers.

Recently myself, and a group of other awesome lifestyle bloggers, were selected to enter a competition with a group of  financial bloggers. Each blogger has 60 days to build a side business (on Fiverr) and compete to see who can earn the most money – and show you how it’s done! Here’s the group of awesome bloggers I’m working with:
Little Learning Lovies
Little Blog on the Homestead
Thinking Outside the Sandbox
A Bird and a Bean
Mom are We There Yet
A Disabled Moms Life
The Usual Mayhem
Giveaway Bandit
Loving Here


I was racking my brain on what I could do on Fiverr , and I started thinking about a few emails I had received recently about how much I had encouraged and motivated followers and friends when it comes to fitness, and working hard (work and weight loss related). I thought how awesome would it be if someone could order that on a weekly basis? So I decided that I would offer 5 days of motivational/inspirational e-mails customized to your specific needs/wants/desires – just for $5?!
fiverr_motivationAbove is an example of a weight loss/inspirational e-mail. Along with the inspirational photos and quotes, you would receive 7-10 links per day to healthy advice, tips and tricks. Definitely worth the $1  a day!!!!

Fiverr is offering  my readers a chance to try my service for FREE using code:  WORKBLOG2015
*You must be a first time user and you can only use the coupon once. *While supplies last.

If you think this is a great idea for a Fiverr service, or you tried one of my gigs, please go vote for me (All in a Days Work) – we are a competitive group, and we want to see whose doing the best!

Protect Your Files and Photos with Amazon Cloud Drive

As most of you know, I love taking pictures – even before starting my  blog I have had a habit of taking photos of every event I  go to, and of my kids  whenever they will let me snap a picture. I guess I inherited from my Dad who is a photographer. I have spent many many hours at events and locations waiting for him to  get that perfect shot (have you ever spent an hour watching the lions at the zoo, just to get a great shot?? I have!)


When you take the time to take great photographs – or a video, or even write something; or when you snap photos of your kids when they are little of their first birthday, to graduation, you want to make sure those pictures are always safe and secure.  I can tell you nothing will make your heart drop faster than realizing your child just factory re-set your cell phone and you realized you hadn’t had a chance to back up your pictures  in  well, ever. Or when you accidentally leave a very full very important memory card in an older camera that you let your son play with and he deletes the entire thing – yes, this has happened to me.. I wish I would of realized  how easy  it was to backup and protect my photos, post, and videos on Amazon Cloud.


The Amazon Cloud Drive lets you securely  back-up and store your photo, video and article collections – and automatically uploads your new content for you,  so you don’t have to worry about forgetting to back it up each time you upload new content.

The most convenient (and easiest) way to get started is to download the Amazon Photo app – available (for free) via Android or iOS devices,which automatically backs up your camera roll – freeing up much needed space on your device  (Hallelujah!! I don’t know about you, but I’m always looking for more ways to free up space on my phone or tablet!) What’s also great about this app, is you can also access your photos and  videos that you uploaded through other devices, or on the web!


Your photos and files can be shared if you want, through private links from within the Amazon Photo app, or by selecting a specific file or folder on your  computer – which makes sharing those vacation or special event photos with your friends and family  that much easier. 

Good news, if you  are already an Amazon Prime member, you already have access to the Amazon Cloud Drive – which gives you unlimited photo storage as part of your Prime membership (thank goodness, because I have a lot of pictures  I had to upload!) Prime members also get an additional 5 GB of storage for videos, files, etc.

Amazon recently announced two unlimited storage plans, both start with a free 3-month trial:
Unlimited Everything Plan ($59.99 per year—equivalent of less than $5 per month): Store an infinite number of new and existing photos, videos, files, documents, movies, and music in Cloud Drive.
Unlimited Photos Plan ($11.99 per year—equivalent of less than $1 per month): Similar to the Prime member benefit – non Prime members can also store an infinite number of photos in Cloud Drive without worrying about taking up space on phones, cameras, or other devices. This plan also includes 5 GB of additional storage for videos or other documents and files.

I was selected for this opportunity as a member of Clever Girls and the content and opinions expressed here are all my own.

#InjuriesSuck: Next-Gen Soccer Protection Keeps You in the Field


My two youngest kids have been  playing soccer since they were old enough to join a team – since I was  a  softball player, I wasn’t sure what I was up for when we started. As the years have gone by I have come to realize that soccer players  are the toughest of the tough. Like no lie, the physical levels they have to be at blows the pants of most any other sport.  Though soccer isn’t really considered a contact sport, I can attest that this is definitely not the case – I’ve seen my kids bruised and beat up shins to prove it!

So when I was given the chance to have them try the Storelli’s best protective gear – I of course,  jumped at the chance.


Storelli is a dedicated team of scientists, designers, creatives and business folk who simply wanted to push the boundaries of soccer protective gear. They have engineered a line of protective gear apparel for adult and youth soccer players that is second to none.

The Body Shield Leg Guard is a premium lower leg protection with revolutionary design that holds shin guards in place without the need for constant manual adjustments or tape – which is awesome. It also gives protection to the areas not covered by the  shin pad,  like the outside of the leg, and the ankle.


The Exoshield HeadGuard was specifically designed to provide protection against impact to the head and to reduce the incidence of cuts and bruises to covered areas. Though the ExoShield significantly reduces the force of impact to covered areas, (but it does not guarantee against concussions).


I am giving my readers a chance to win both Storelli soccer protective gear products above, just enter in the rafflecopter below!
