I love shopping at Bath & Body Works.  Literally, I could spend hours walking around and smelling the different scented lotions and hand washes.  I especially enjoy the foaming hand wash, of which I recently bought 3 or 4 different varieties.  In an effort to save money on my shopping habit, I typically wait and […]...

I love to travel!  I’ve traveled to different places around the world via a car, a boat, an airplane, and a train and made some amazing memories that I’ll have for the rest for my life.  Whenever I’m traveling, I always make an extra effort to keep myself safe – such as keeping my luggage […]...

Ever since I was a little girl, I’ve had curly, thick red hair.  I remember brushing it when I was a kid and not figuring it out until I was in junior high that you shouldn’t just brush curly hair when it’s dry because then you get the frizz effect.  That was when I started […]...

I would like to start this post by saying that I put my makeup on every day; do my hair every day; change out of my jammies before noon every day; and shower every single day.  However, if I did, I would be stretching the truth just a little bit.  I mean, it can get […]...

My boys love to make and drink chocolate milk! Sometimes, when they’re mixing or even drinking, they spill chocolate milk on their clothes. If you’ve done laundry before, you know that chocolate milk can stain. That’s where Resolve Pre-Treat comes in handy! In fact, it was just the other day when I was doing laundry […]...

A wedding is an event that many brides start dreaming about when their little girls.  I remember having the Barbie doll with the wedding dress and “pretend marrying” her and Ken in an elaborate and beautiful wedding ceremony with my sisters.  When the time comes to get married again, I’ll more than likely purchase a […]...

When I was a young girl, I was very self-conscious about my smile because my teeth were everywhere.  I went through the process of braces and retainers to have them straightened in Junior High and High School and loved how they looked afterwards.  I took very special care of my teeth from that point on. […]...

I don’t know about you, but there is something refreshing, revitalizing, relaxing, and beautifying about taking a shower.  My day always seems to be 200 times better when I start my morning with a shower.  That can all change very quickly if I have a shower head that doesn’t leave me with beautiful hair.  Thanks […]...

Put it to the test and you’ll get rid of the rest…Colgate’s new Total Advanced Pro-Shield Mouthwash. I’m pretty wishy-washy when it comes to mouthwashes (yes, pun intended). I usually purchase the one that’s on sale, but have never really been thrilled with any brand or flavor. However, I think my family will be sticking […]...
