How many times have you said your kids, “you learn something new every day”? Before you start counting on your fingers and searching your husband’s ‘man drawer’ I better confirm that was a rhetorical question; just ‘a lot’ will do as an answer. We say this because it is true, we do learn something new every day and that is because we never stop learning, which is because, well, we will never know everything and we will always keep learning. That is the real lesson you are trying to teach your little ones; to always learn and always learn from…

August’s skincare routine went a little as expected. I started my August routine mid August so I didn’t really have much time. I have carried over a few favorites from last month which usually will show progress through continued use each month. I also kinda feel like I sabotaged my routine last month by drinking to much milk. That may sound kinda crazy to you but google it, it’s a think and it sucks! As you can tell from the photo above my face was broken out. This is what to much milk will do to my body. I’m no…

Oriental Trading has been around for as long as I can remember. When I heard the name, Oriental Trading, the only thing that came to mind was party supplies and believe me, they do party supplies like no other. While searching their site for party supplies for Cullen’s birthday next month, I came across a great selection of home decor items! To my surprise their selection was beautiful and affordable. I still can not believe I had never heard or even seen, mention of their home decor selections. After searching and finding a few decorative pieces I fell in love with,…

With fall on the horizon, many of us are beginning to turn our thoughts to the cooler months of the year. There’s plenty of good news to be found in these considerations. There’s Halloween, just waiting to be enjoyed by our kids. There’s the delights of Thanksgiving, family reunions and Black Friday sales. Then there is the glittering jewel in the crown: Christmas, a season of sparkles, the most wonderful time of the year.

Saving Money with Groupon Coupons We all love to save money right?  I use to be one of those binder carrying, coupon clipping fanatics. I couponed for almost 8 years and was able to create a very nice stockpile for my family to live off of. I later worked myself out of it as I went back into working full time and decided to take up blogging. One think I have noticed is that couponing has become more difficult over the years. Due to this reason, I am constantly looking for easier ways to save money. One of the most…
