Most of my life, I’ve had curly hair.  When I was younger, nobody told me that you shouldn’t just brush curly hair.  Yeah – that’s what I did and a lot of the time, it looked like a frizzy mess.  It was in high school that a friend introduced me to hair mousse and gel. […]...

It’s the holidays and often times we find ourselves thinking of everyone but ourselves.  I don’t know about you, but when it comes to what everyone else wants, I have no problem rambling off a long list of ideas.  However, when it comes down to what I want to Christmas, I find myself pausing with […]...

When I was a little girl, I would constantly hear the nickname, “Skinny Minny.”  Well, three beautiful boys and 34 years later, I find that I don’t really fit that same nickname.  Life has caught up with me.  I have hips, love handles and have even become somewhat insecure about certain “fatty” areas of my […]...

Christmas is coming up and we have a lot of holiday shopping still left to do.  One of my favorite gifts to give and receive, other than jewelry, is perfume.  What’s even better than perfume is a box set with perfume and lotion in it.  Frank and I headed to Walmart and found an awesome […]...

Growing up, I was the oldest of 4 girls in our house.  How ironic was it that I became a mother to 3 boys (no girls in the mix)?  It wasn’t until I met Frank that I became a stepmom (for all intents and purposes) to his 2 girls and 1 son.  As a young […]...

Do you have NCAA fans in your home?  I love hosting get-togethers (or even going to the local sports bar/restaurant) and watching my family and friends interact about their Game Day Rivalries.  It is pretty intense at times, but funny altogether!  You’ll see them getting excited and hollering for their team, but when all is […]...
