Jim Carrey’s Commencement Speech

I still remember my commencement speech when I was graduating from USC with my Masters in Engineering…it was a warm SoCal day and Arnold Schwarzenegger was up on stage teaching us about the rules of life….at least the ones that brought him success.  So anytime I see a wonderful commencement speech from anyone memorable, I like to watch and share it. Jim Carrey had some really wonderful words of wisdom to deliver to the graduating class of 2014 from Maharishi…

The All Natural Lie

Can I just say #$@! the words “All-Natural”?!?!? I mean, excuse my rant, but the marketing departments of food companies (and cosmetics) have really pushed the phrase “All Natural” to the maximum limit when it comes to foods. Yes, we all need to eat more foods around the perimeter of the store (which I do), however for those snack foods you like to have around the house for you and the kiddos…the word’s “All-Natural” have lost all meaning to me…its…

Finding some great new SONGZA

One of the best things about music is that it can truly define your personality, mood, lifestyle, and even what you’re up to!!   That’s why there are some great music subscription services like Sirius radio or XM radio, but who wants to pay for that? And even though they “CLAIM” there are no commercials…there are…which defeats the entire purpose of the service! I am a free-radio listener myself, and there’s just sometimes I don’t feel like listening to what’s on.  …

Manicure In A Jar

Well, I wanted to post this before Mother’s Day, but I didn’t want to break the surprise to my sisters of what I had done for them (as they are awesome supporters of my blog! Thanks you guys!).

I basically purchased…

Favor your Favorite Mom and Baby Products with Favored.by

Now one thing that I definitely lost some sleep over before I had my first baby (and still do as my toddler goes through many different phases of his life) is what are the best products to purchase that are effective AND work for our lifestyle.   My husband and I spent so many countless hours on amazon.com and brand sites to see what would work the best for us. We went to (and still DO!) go to shows like Big…

#LookUp – A Spoken Word Film for an Online Generation

Have you seen this #LookUp viral video?  I mean, this video really hits upon what is becoming of this generation, and not only am I an offender of this repeated daily obsession with being and feeling connected….I am also a victim.   This video is written, performed and directed by Gary Turk. It goes through an array of relate-able images, events, and circumstances that hit all of us in one way or another at some point in our lives. And through…
