Surprising Beauty Upgrade I Made

When you think about making an upgrade to your beauty routine, your mind probably goes to skincare, makeup, or hair care. I am willing to bet that when you think about upgrading your beauty routine, you don’t think about upgrading your deodorant! A deodorant upgrade is just the upgrade I made recently and I am so glad I did! When you are thinking about what beauty upgrade you want to make next, you should think about upgrading your deodorant too.

New Obsession from Burt’s Bees

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Burt’s Bees. All opinions are 100% mine.

If you have followed along for a while, you know that I have tried out many Burt’s Bees products over the years. Spoiler alert, I have loved every product I have tried from them! Whether it is skincare, facial makeup, or lip products, I have always been impressed with the quality of products made by Burt’s Bees. I was excited to find out about the new Burt’s Bees Tinted Lip Oils and to give them a try!

Clothing Necessities for a Beach Vacation

This post was sponsored by Speedo. I received Speedo products as compensation.

During the winter, there are few things I would rather do than go on a beach vacation! I have several friends who have been doing just that and it has given me serious wanderlust. Soon, I’ll be planning a trip that will involve the beach and I’m getting really excited about it! As much as I love spending time on the banks of the lakes nearby, there is nothing like soaking in the hot sun while enjoying the ocean waves.

There are a few clothing items that I can’t seem to live without when I visit the beach. [Read more…]

Fighting Sickness

I’m sharing #Ricola in my life as part of a sponsored series for Socialstars™

I’m not sure if it is because of the junk food I ate over the holidays, the pregnancy, or the weather, but I have been fighting a lot of sicknesses lately. Thankfully I haven’t had many places I needed to be, since I am just waiting around for this baby to come. The hard part has been knowing that I need to be getting my sleep before I have a newborn, but my body not allowing me to get the sleep I need because I have been so sick!

Organize Your Family with One App

Tracking Pixel
Staying organized in 2017 is going to be so much easier with the help of the CURAGO app. I have partnered with CURAGO for this post.

I can’t even tell you how many apps I have tried over the years in my search of finding a great app to organize my family. I wasn’t ever able to find one that had all of the features I was looking for, so I always went back to my paper planner. The problem with my paper planner is that I forget it at home almost every time it seems like I would need it. What is the point of trying to stay organized if you can’t even be organized enough to remember to grab your planner in the first place?

I never forget my phone, so finding a great app to help organize my life just made more sense than trying to remember a paper planner each time I walked out of the door. That is why I was completely overjoyed to learn about the CURAGO app!

Support Small Merchants this Holiday!


The delivery drivers who come to my house would agree with me when I say that I love online shopping. I shop for just about everything online, including my groceries! I love the convenience of ordering what I need from the comforts of my own home, especially during the winter when you just never know what the roads are going to be like. I am always shocked when I hear someone say that they don’t really shop online because my world wouldn’t be the same without online shopping!

Besides just the convenience of shopping from my couch, another thing I sincerely love about online shopping is that I have so many merchants available to shop from. I have discovered so many small businesses that I wouldn’t have ever had access to if I wasn’t able to shop online. This holiday season, I tried to support as many small merchants as I could. I love thinking about the family on the other end of the business when I am shopping from a small merchant. I would much rather spend my money on something that will help support the dream of a stay at home mom or a family who works together than a large corporation. One small merchant that I shopped from this holiday season was Misha and Puff.

How I plan to set New Year’s Resolutions

I’m sharing #LISTERINE in my life as part of a LISTERINE® sponsored series for Socialstars™

I am a believer in goal setting. I like striving for things that I put my mind to. I am not always very good at setting the right types of goals though. Sometimes I set the bar too high and I am disappointed when I don’t reach that goal or other times I don’t set the bar high enough. I think the most important part is that I am actually setting the goals. It doesn’t really matter if I am perfect at setting the goals, I am just glad that I am actually setting them.

I have been in the beginning stages of setting 2017 goals for myself and for my business. I love the prospect that each new year brings when setting goals. There is a fresh start and I can work to achieve the goals I set, without having to dwell on what I did or didn’t do the previous year. There is going to be a lot of change for our family in 2017. The first major change will be happening right after the new year when baby sister comes. One goal that I have set is to be more prepared for her birth than I was for the first. The first time, we were caught by complete surprise when my water broke at 36 weeks. I didn’t have a hospital bag packed, we barely had a crib set up, and we were pretty naive about pretty much everything. I am working to be more prepared this time around so that all of history doesn’t have to repeat itself.

Family Gift Ideas Everyone Will Enjoy

This holiday season, I’m swapping gifts with another blogger for her entire family for eBay’s holiday gift exchange. I’ve partnered with eBay to create this post! Enjoy!

I still remember receiving family gifts when I was younger. It may sound strange, but the thoughts of getting a gift as a family was almost more exciting to me than getting an individual gift! It was always such a mystery to see what gift would fit our entire family. It was so much fun to see what the gift givers thought our family would enjoy. Those gifts still go down as some of my favorite gifts I have ever been able to enjoy!

I love the idea of giving a family gift. Instead of purchasing several smaller gifts, you can put your entire gifting budget to one big item that everyone can enjoy. Most of those bigger ticket items aren’t things that families would typically think to spend their own money on, so they make really great gifts! 

I put together a few suggestions to help you find the perfect gift when you need family gift ideas!

I loved searching for great gift ideas on eBay. It is a site that I can trust and I know that it is full of an incredible variety of items! No matter what types of things the family enjoys, eBay is sure to have something that would make a perfect gift for them! [Read more…]

Get Your Hair Through the Dry Months

This content was sponsored by Aussie but all thoughts and opinions are my own. I hope you enjoy following along! #ad

My hair really suffers this time of year. Once the summer is gone and autumn comes, my hair seems to take a nice break and can be pretty healthy. Once autumn starts going away and the cold, dry winter sets in it is another story. My hair gets incredibly dry and brittle during the winter. I love finding products that can help get my hair through these cold, winter months. Recently, I had the opportunity to try out a variety of Aussie Hair products and I was really impressed by them!

Avoiding Illness this Cold Season

I’m sharing #Ricola  in my life as part of a sponsored series for Socialstars™

I had a really great Thanksgiving with my family. We spent the week at my parents’ house and my brother soon joined us with his family. It was so great to get to spend time with all of them, but as the week progressed we noticed a trend happening. We were all starting to sound the same. Our voices were starting to sound sick! Sharing the same house for the week meant that we were sharing the same germs too.

I tried to wash my hands constantly and get enough sleep, but I just couldn’t get on top of the illness. My body’s immune system is lower than it usually is because my body is working extra hard with my pregnancy. It didn’t take much to get me sick and once I started getting sick, it continued to get worse. By the time we got home from our Thanksgiving with family, I was feeling like I had about the worst cold I have ever had!
