This is a partnered post with BEE & YOU. As a mother, I always want to keep my children safe and healthy (no matter how old they are)!

This is a partnered post with Neutrogena. Imagine the perfect Sunday. You go for a walk in the park, pick up a fruit smoothie and then take your family to the beach for an afternoon of swimming and castle building. By the end of the day, you feel exhausted, but happy – radiant, even. A […]...

Our oldest daughter just finished her junior year in high school and in May she went to her Junior/Senior Prom with her boyfriend. I was really excited because that meant I could take her prom dress shopping, as well as do her hair and makeup for the dance. Teah is very artistic and didn’t want […]...

This is a sponsored post with Jenny Life Insurance and BraVoMark. All opinions are mine. If we were to talk about any variety of topics with our spouses, I can bet that death is one that many of us steer clear of talking about. We don’t want to think about something terrible like that happening, but the truth is, […]...

For years, I’ve been getting acrylic nails painted with gel polish. I loved the wide variety of colors, as well as how quickly they dried when I used the gel polish. Whenever I tried to grow my nails naturally (that is without the acrylic or gel polish), it would prove unsuccessful as my nails would […]...

Growing up, I was constantly teased for my red hair, fair skin and freckles. Being unique and different in my eyes as a kid was a negative thing. Who knew that what I perceived as negative would actually be something that sets me apart from others and makes me special. Now that I’m a mother […]...

If you’ve met me in person, you know something unique about me is not only my red hair, fair skin and freckles, but also the piercings I have. It wasn’t too long ago that I decided to go to Claires and get a third piercing in my ear. I love the diamond studs I have […]...
