During a live webcast the other night that I was invited to by SodaStream, they announced their new Super Bowl ad as well as their Global Brand Ambassador; Scarlett Johansson. Why Scarlett Johansson out of all the other celebrities out there who could endorse their product? It’s because she really does have a love of SodaStream.
“I’ve been using the SodaStream products myself and giving them as gifts for many, many years,” said Johansson. “The company’s commitment to a healthier body and a healthier planet is a perfect fit for me. I love that the product can be tailored to any lifestyle and palate. The partnership between me and SodaStream is a no brainer. I am beyond thrilled to share my enthusiasm for SodaStream with the world!!”
Johansson believes that being healthy is about commitment, determination, and self- empowerment. These core values emulate SodaStream’s mission to revolutionize the beverage industry by empowering people with easy-to-use, fun ways to enjoy better-for-you, better-for-the- environment bubbly beverages.
The actress has loved sparkling water since childhood, which led her to discover SodaStream. Now a loyal user for years, Johansson has a soda maker in her home and is an enthusiastic fan of the brand.
I think she’s a really great fit for SodaStream, and it’s nice to hear endorsements for products from people who actually are passionate and use the products as well, not just a paid spokes person. Take a peek at the live stream and announcement that was made.
If you’ve never tried or heard of SodatStream before, the system allows consumers to carbonate water and then to flavor it at home with their favorite soda flavors. Environmentally it replaces all the cans and bottles we waste as well as makes healthier carbonated beverages. There are over 100 flavors available which contain no High Fructose Corn Syrup and no Aspartame.
The advantages of SodaStream‘s Home Carbonation System include:
- Convenience: No need to carry heavy bottles from the store. The SodaStream system is simple to use and requires no batteries or electricity.
- Environmentally-Friendly: SodaStream is an “Active Green” solution that minimizes the huge eco-footprint caused by the manufacture, transport and waste of plastic bottles.
- Variety: SodaStream offers over 100 flavors to suit everyone’s taste. Regular, diet, natural, fruity flavors, ice tea, energy drinks, sport drinks, tonic and many more.
- Space Saver: No need to store bottles of beverages or empty bottles for recycling in your home.
- Personalization: Make drinks just the way you love them… more bubbles, less bubbles, sweeter or lighter, even create your own flavor!
- Family Fun: The system is quick and easy to use. It’s fun for everyone and kids just love it!
- Value for Money: Great savings compared to pre-packed carbonated water and beverages.
- Satisfaction Guaranteed: SodaStream drinks makers are of extremely high quality and include a money-back satisfaction guarantee.

We’re on day 4 of another day of no school. The roads still aren’t great, and as crazy as my children are driving me at this point (still on Christmas break 4 days past the time Christmas break was supposed to end) I’m happy we don’t have school! That means I don’t have to go out into this cold and snow unless I want to, and believe me, I don’t want to.
Yesterday we were pretty sure that school would be open today, or at the very most on a 2 hour delay. The roads were getting better, the temps were climbing up (if you can call it that), and we had already had 3 days off. Yes, I’m sure we would have school the next day.
My girls who are 10 and 7 have a normal bedtime of 8:00pm on school nights, they share a room, so granted 8pm bedtime usually they don’t fall asleep till around 9. They talk, my oldest will tell my youngest a story, or they will read to themselves for a while. But last night……..They…Were…driving…me….INSANE!!! They would NOT be quiet, they would NOT stay in their own beds, they were making me mad!
We didn’t get notified about school being canceled until about 9:30pm, these girls were still wide awake messing around, even though we had already yelled at them multiple times to get to sleep, they had school in the morning. So, by this time, I was about loosing it… I decided to be the meanest mom in the world!
We woke up this morning just like it was a school day….YUP that’s right! We were going to school, or so they thought… They got up, dressed, brushed their teeth… My oldest came downstairs to have breakfast, I had just told my youngest to get her teeth brushed and I’d do her hair. All of a sudden we hear screaming…. “YOU LIED TO ME!!!!!!!”
My oldest ran upstairs “YOU LIED TO ME!!! There is NO school today again!” How do you know that I asked her? “I saw it on the TV! YOU LIED!”.
Yup! That’s what you GET for messing around and not going to bed!
The meanest mom in the world award…GOES TO ME and I’m proud of it!!!

Before you move, you’re going to find yourself in a sea of stuff, some of which you may not even remember buying, much less using. This is when you know you need to do a little de-cluttering before boxing everything up and moving on to a new home. Luckily for you, we’ve brought you some helpful tips so you know what you should sell, donate and throw away before you move.
What to Sell
As you begin the moving process, you’ll want to look at selling a few choice items. The main things you should think about trying to make some money on are those that face the least depreciation of value over time and are generally classified as luxury items. For example, if you have a television, phone or some furniture you’d like to unload, selling may be the best way to go. You can use sites like Craigslist, eBay and Lockboxer (although of course you need to beware in dealing through the Internet).
What to Donate
The majority of the things you want to part with before a move will likely be good to donate. Donate the things you know someone else could use. These are things like old toys, books, games and puzzles.
When you go to donate something, the most important thing is to make sure you give to the charity that could make the best use of the item. For example, if you would like to give away a toy or game, a children’s hospital may be the place that could appreciate such an item the most. It’s vital that you give to a charity that could really use what you’re giving. Giving back to the community in the most effective way possible is the perfect way to start off a move!
What to Throw Away
Lastly, there will be some things you’re not going to take with you that should just be thrown away. The bottom line here is that you don’t want to donate or try to sell something that no one else could use. This means what you’ll want to pitch are mostly the items that are in some way damaged or too old to really be useful to anyone. This includes clothes with holes in them, games with too many missing pieces to play and toys that are broken. Keep in mind that it creates more work for a charity when you donate goods that they must then throw away.
