my new tablet - the trip AXS from T-Mobile -

So here’s something you may not know about bloggers… We have deadlines. We worry about SEO. We track our social media and pageviews. We create content to make money AND to keep you entertained. Sure, blogging is a fun hobby, but for some of us it’s a job too. Monday’s are the craziest days for me, but also my favorite. It’s a great mail day usually, lots of new job opps to apply for, but I always usually have at least one post that is DUE with a deadline. Sometimes I am not near my computer (like on my family road trip) and I’ve had to blog on my phone to get those deadlines met, social media shares tagged and content links entered. It’s stressful and I’ve wanted a better solution for awhile now, especially since we have another trip planned in October. I also needed my option to be financially viable, and easily portable. A free T-Mobile data plan would be awesome too… Enter the trio AXS from T-Mobile.Continue Reading

Mosaic Jello Jigglers -

So summer is rounding out (THANK GOD!) and that means a few things, the kids are back in school, the weather is cooling off and FOOTBALL. Now, we are not a HUGE football family, but we are definitely a football party family. I am usually down to watch a game if it involves friends, family and snacks. I don’t usually care who wins or loses (unless it’s our home team), but the game day food is always high on my list of interests.Continue Reading

DIY Ombre Tie Dye TShirt Scarf -

Fall is coming!! Yay! That means boots and sweaters and SCARVES!

I love scarves in any form. I have all sorts of infinity scarves, knit scarves, and pashminas, but the one I get the most compliments on is a simple T-Shirt scarf I have. I decided I wanted to recreate one using a tie dyed t-shirt, to give it a fun effect. I used the Tulip Tie Dye kits. It’s time to tie dye your summer, guys! I am so excited to tie dye so many things! I even grabbed a pair of white jeans I am going to fancy up!Continue Reading

Smelly Washer Review

This summer has wrecked havok on my appliances. They are stinky, musty, smelly gross nasty. I often wonder where that smell is coming from, only to open the washer or dish washer and get a huge wiff. Not cool. So I decided to give Smelly Washer a try and will never look back.

I’ve tried DIY recipes for washer cleaner with lemon Kool Aid powder, and baking soda on Pinterest and it sort of worked, but the amount of effort and costs and time that went into them were more than it was worth.Continue Reading

Baby Lace Romper – Kids Fashion + GIVEAWAY

I don’t post about little girls fashion as much as I would like to. I am so glad I have a little girl, because little girls clothes are so adorable! I have no clue about little boys clothes, but I just found out that I am going to be an aunt to a little boy yesterday (HUGE congrats to my little sister, Katie and Curtis!) so I better start learning…


Needless to say, little girls clothes rock my world, and without restraint I could clearly go bankrupt shopping for my girls. I have seen adorable rompers around recently, and I just am IN LOVE with them for Abbey this summer. She has a few because honestly, they are cute, and easy… one piece done! We love to wear them to the beach, and the park and it’s just such a chic little item for the season.Continue Reading

DIY Gardeners Scrub with Palmolive Soft Touch -

I love my tiny little garden on my balcony. I have always wanted a big huge farm, but alas living in an apartment right now is not going to allow that. I few years ago I started a small little balcony garden, and it’s been flourishing ever since. I love my small space out there, loaded with all sorts of herbs, flowers and veggies, but I hate what it does to my hands. I’ve tried lots of different things, but it’s usually the options are so rough on my skin. Digging in the dirt, repotting seedlings and pruning thorn bushes can really get messy. So I decided I needed a better option besides the man soap my husband uses after he works on cars, and I created a gardener’s hand scrub using epsom salts, kosher salt, essential oils and Palmolive Coconut Butter Soft Touch Soap. It’s like a little mini spa treatment in my kitchen sink. I love to finding other uses for dish soap!Continue Reading

I struggle with white teeth. I have a pretty decently white smile, but I’ve always wanted one of those crazy WHITE smiles, Movie Star style, the kind that sparkles in photos. You know what I am talking about.

I’ve tried pretty much anything and everything from bleaching capsules to tinted toothpaste. It’s been a struggle to get the results I’ve wanted, but then I tried Truly Radiant from Arm&Hammer.
