Last Christmas when I was shopping for gifts, I saw this adorable little trinket that said “follow your dreams” on it. It’s the kind of cute little thing I’m always buying for one of my girls. I picked it up, examined it, thought for a moment, and put it back down. I wasn’t in the mood to promote my kids following their dreams if they didn’t involve them living within a fairly close proximity to me or the rest of their family.
The New Year is always an exciting time – most of us are excited to start fresh. Others are more excited for a different reason – playoff football and eventually the Superbowl. I’ve heard it’s kind of a big deal.
For that reason, I have prepared the only way I know how – with the most important thing when it comes to any sporting event –food!
There are always so many options but this year I’ve gone for a more obvious one, with a twist: Superbowl themed cupcakes! Half the cupcakes are colored for one team and half is for the other team. This year it’s the New England Patriots (shocker) versus the Atlanta Falcons. So the colors are red, white, and blue versus red, white, and black. The best part is that I did not distinguish which cupcakes are which teams. So your Falcons guests may unwittingly bite into a Patriots-themed cake.
This week I’m making holiday bath bombs!
Bath bombs are great all year around, but they’re also a great little holiday gift. You can make them for a hostess gift or even secret Santa – because who doesn’t love a nice warm bath once in a while? Especially you! You can always keep them for yourself and take a break from the holiday hustle and bustle.
These bath bombs are [Read more…]
It’s that time of the month again! My favorite time of the month, when my Ipsy Glam Bag comes! I get so excited when I see that pink envelope in the mailbox. (If you’re not familiar with Ipsy, check out my last review where I explain how it works.) This month the Glam bag was gray and gold with abstract dancing girls on it. I didn’t even notice at first, but the girls are actually spelling out Ipsy with their arms. Not my favorite Glam bag design but still cute!
Recently I decided to make a change in my life – to get healthy and get in shape. I’m 25 and realize I don’t take very good care of myself. I don’t eat right and don’t exercise. That needs to change. I decided to join Beachbody and start meal prepping.
A few weeks ago a friend of mine who’s a coach for the company Beachbody reached out to me. I’d recently quit my job (no more paid gym time) and just gotten engaged. Frankly, she got me at a vulnerable time. In the past, when she would ask, I would say I didn’t have the time or energy to commit. Now it’s a different story.
Ipsy is a monthly subscription service for makeup. It’s only $10 a month. There are a few other similar subscription boxes but I tried this one and so far I love it! You get 6 products, including the “glam” bag, 4 sample size products, and 1 full-size product. It could be anything ranging from makeup, hair, and skin products. It is all based on a profile you set up for yourself. You choose which brands and products you’re interested in. Usually, everyone’s product selection is a little different.
Summer is the perfect time to plan a vacation, especially a Florida Vacation. The kids are off school and flying is much easier without those winter layers. Tampa is always packed and Orlando is even worse. But it’s all in good fun! Except sometimes when it comes to packing. Sure we all know what to pack – toothbrush, extra underwear, bathing suit – those sorts of things make sense. But when planning for a Florida destination vacation there may be a few extras maybe you didn’t think of.
I recommend the below 5 items to make your Florida vaca a little more comfortable:
About a month ago I got engaged. I’ve probably been dreaming about getting married and planning a wedding for years. I can, without a doubt, say that just because I’ve been dreaming about it doesn’t mean I have any idea how to actually plan a wedding.
It’s strange because for such a long time getting married and planning a wedding was just a fantasy. Something I could plan on Pinterest without any real thought of executing it. Well now it’s really happening and I’m [Read more…]
My now lovely fiancé and I have been together for almost 7 years. We only recently got engaged. That being said, the road was not easy and definitely not silent. You could say that I’ve been thinking about getting married and fantasizing about it for years. And the anticipation may have caused some arguments along the way. However, when it finally did happen, here are a few things I learned about the experience:
