Transformation Tuesday, Home Edition

It’s taken me WAY too long to share this (my apologies), but this past Winter I dove out of my comfort zone into a decent size home project and I’ve been super excited to share the details…even if it has taken me a while to get around to it, ha! In short, I transformed our guest space from blah to beautiful, from an afterthought to …

Full Disclosure & Open to Opportunity

So after a solid year of using/reordering Ever Skincare products, a number of them have made it onto my hard-to-make “must have” list (it takes a lot go join the company of my longtime loves, Arcona Cranberry Toner and RF Lashboost)! Also, after a year of blogging about Ever products here and there, my lovely friend, Roni, who introduced me to Ever, has acquired a …

Here to Help

Oooooh Spring is so close you can just see it and smell it everywhere! We got back from Florida yesterday and the little buds peeking out got me so excited! So naturally with the change of season comes the need for some fresh pieces in your wardrobe. What pieces you wonder? A little bit of everything really, from replacing your nasty old, used-to-be-white tees and …

You’ll Never Want Starbucks Again

I mean I feel a little bad even writing that title, because Starbucks has been good to us over the years, but today on this snowy hump day I bring you an important public service announcement, haha! There’s no partnership, sponsorship or anything involved here…just a need to share some knowledge. Because once you try Breville you’ll seriously never want Starbucks again! Sure Breville is …

Add Style to Your Apple Watch With a Leather Band

So truth be told, I don’t own an Apple Watch…gasp! I know everyone has them, it’s just not for me. The thought of having my wrist lighting up and buzzing away all day just doesn’t appeal, lol! However, that doesn’t mean I can’t help you add style your Apple Watch and shower you with GIVEAWAYS in the process 😉 I mean unless you’re a gym …

Giving Season

Holiday season is in full swing with Christmas fast approaching. And while it’s a super fun time full of parties, lights, treats and festivities, it’s also a season of giving 🙂 …not only to our friends, teachers, and loved ones,  but to people we don’t know…whom we’ve never met, but who need our kindness and generosity. We’re faced every day with bins and tags for …

The Most Wonderful Time of the Year

Yep, it’s the most wonderful time of the year (now that song is stuck in your head, haha)…not only is it holiday season, but it’s basketball season!! And I don’t mean like I’m an avid NBA fan…I’m talking youth basketball. My husband and I both grew up playing sports, so when we had kids we automatically started rolling, throwing, hitting balls with them as soon …

Bubbly For A Cause

Super excited for Christmas party #1 this Friday night! Lots to do this week, especially after being away this past weekend, but no work is more fun than party prep work! And the day last week that I decided to throw this party, the first thing I did was hop online to order my favorite Christmas season bubbly for a cause…in fact the only bubbly …

Time is Ticking Down

Well after a nice, long Thanksgiving break today it’s back to reality and the time crunch begins. Not only do I host Christmas, but 2 of my kids’ birthdays are in December…plus I decided to host an impromptu-ish ladies’ cocktail bash to collect holiday gift donations for a local women’s shelter (stay tuned for details on that fundraiser). But today I needed to quickly let …

And today I bring you an opportunity to win one of Oprah’s favorite things – yahoo, yippee!! Here’s how…it’s super simple. Order anything from Ever using this link between today and Tuesday, November 27th and …
