6 Things My Single Self Apologized To My Mommy Self For

I wrote this article as a guest post on Daddy Doin’ Work. But I thought I’d also post it here because it’s just so awesome. You know you’ve done it before kids – rolling your eyes at parents whose kids are having a tantrum in the middle of Toys R Us, playground, or in the middle of a restaurant while they simply sit there and watch. You think to yourself, “Why isn’t that parent doing anything about it?!” Fast forward years later,…

Telekinetic Coffee Shop Surprise

LOL. This is one of the best pranks I’ve seen in a long time…and shows you how many people really believe that we have telekinetic powers, and also how scared they are of that power.  This girl does a great job, and the set is immaculate. Wow…what a great prank.  How would you react?  #FlexLikeCarrie

Let’s Talk About Sex…Or Lack OF… (and GIVEAWAY!)

Before the responsibilities of kids, a mortgage, juggling schedules , and of course the everlasting battle of who’s turn is it to wash the dishes, you get married to the one that you love, and just KNOW and even VOW that you will never become one of those couples that sit next to each other in bed (or at the dinner table) night after night watching Jimmy Fallon sans conversation, or even touching. Enter reality after you have kids, and…

Let’s Keep it Clean with Tidy Tote (and GIVEAWAY!)

Its a typical day with the family, when you’re out and about, running around, picking up groceries, a trip to the park, and maybe even a nice little lunch (well….maybe it’s pick up if you’ve got kids that just can’t seem to accept that a high chair is meant for sitting, and not standing, dropping food, and leaning out screaming like my son)…then IT happens…. you’re officially on poo patrol and need to change your kiddo stat, and try every…

Influenster Spring Fling VoxBox 2014

My Spring Fling Voxbox

Spring has come and gone, and so has the Spring Fling Voxbox from Influenster.  I have to say that I was VERY impressed with this Voxbox, and I thought that I would quickly tell you all about it. Let’s start with my reveal video that goes through all of the items in the Voxbox. The Voxbox came with Kiss Everlasting French Manicure, Softlips 5-in-1 lipcare cube, Rimmel London Scandaleyes Retroglam Mascara, Labor Day Air-freshener, Platex Sport Fresh Balance Tampons, and…

Making #LikeAGirl Mean Amazing Things

I really love it when brands pass on really empowering messages.  Always has come out with a new campaign called #LikeAGirl to really help empower girls, and women.  What’s super amazing about it, it that they go through interviewing the older generation about what “doing something like a girl” means, and then proceeded to interview the younger generation asking the same questions.  The results are stunning, and are just SO TRUE.   As a women going through puberty, it is a…

Platex Sport Fresh Balance

Well this may be embarrassing (or not)…but I guess it’s something that affect a lot of women in their lives at some point or another…. your period.  Yes I said Period.  I’ll say it again…PERIOD! LOL.  We all want to have something to absorb, and also be comfortable and easy to use.  I found that was the case with Platex Sport Fresh Balance Tampons.    I received these tampons from influenster to review and I have to say that I’m…

Everlasting French Nails Finished

Kiss Everlasting French Manicure

Anyone who knows me KNOWS that french manicures are my manicures of choice, and that I don’t ever put press-ons, gel or acrylic on my nails because I simply don’t need to really.  I was blessed with some pretty kick ass nails that are tough and get through some pretty rough use (especially being a mom).   Influenster sent me a set to try in the #SpringVoxBox and I have to say that I was blown away impressed. Not only were…

6 Things I Learned From Jenni Pulos

I am a firm believer of being in the right place at the right time….AND…being where you’re supposed to be… that was definitely the case for meeting Jenni Pulos up close in person at her book signing for “Grin and Bear It” sponsored by UPPABaby. I was there with my co-founding partner Ali Landry from Favored.by (my mobile app, yay!) and not only met the wonderful Jenni Pulos…but also had almost a cosmic connection with her. Some how our wonderful…

Sugar Really Isn’t Sweet

As we’re all trying to eat healthier and better… us beauties are always on the hunt for better alternatives to sugar, while not ingesting those fake sweetener chemicals that are just as bad if not worse than simply ingesting sugar.  One thing to note is the actual amount of sugar that we find in our foods.   When you read the label of an item, and you see “21 grams sugar”…what does that actually mean?  When you really think about it…sugar…
