Wednesday Wants, what’s that?  Let me tell Ya!  I wanted to introduce a new feature that I will be unveiling next week called “Wednesday Wants”.  As a mom of three teenagers, there is something that someone wants all the time.  So, I figured why not take note of those specific things for the week and share them with you.  These specific things can be as little as a notebook to as extreme as a bed … Continue Reading...

If You Were Mine – Billie Holiday (COVER) by LYSS

If you were mine.  Well, technically, she is mine.  My oldest daughter, Lyss, has a natural gift.  She has many actually, however, this particular gift is one that I wish I could say she got from me, but if you really knew me, you’d know I couldn’t carry a tune to seriously, save my life.  She is an amazing singer and one day I just happen to be stalking her Twitter account (yes, I stalk my … Continue Reading...

Shopping for Fall Fashion at Goodwill

A Beginners Guide To Goodwill Shopping For Fall Fashion

As part of my “self-discovery”,  I thought I would start focusing on finding some great deals for fall fashion.  My wallet is empty most days so I decided to see what I could find at my local GoodWill.

I knew finding something that fit into my fall criteria would be hit or miss.  Long sleeves and I don’t mesh well because I am almost always hotter than the sun.  I don’t like tight clothing because … Continue Reading...

My Fall Makeup Picks for 2016

Favorite Fall Makeup Picks 2016

Part of my big change is how I get ready every day.  I would wake up and slap on some foundation, mascara, and lip gloss before I left the house.  Today, I’m getting back into the beauty of being me.  That means, actually spending time on making myself look the part.  When I was younger, I would have the latest fashions and on-trend makeup.  Makeup and clothing were a form of self-expression to me and … Continue Reading...

Morph DigitalDudz – Super Cool Ugly Sweater!

Morph DigitalDudz

Favorite Holiday Finds #4

The Morph DigitalDudz Moving Fireplace Sweater isn’t your typical “ugly sweater”, it is probably the coolest holiday sweater we’ve ever seen.  When I first saw it online I really didn’t think I was going to like it all that much.  When I showed it to my kids they wanted no part of it.  I’m not even going to lie.  They thought I was so weird for wanting to review … Continue Reading...

This is what we … Continue Reading...

Kohl’s Back to School Challenge #kohls101

This post was sponsored by Kohl’s & we were provided gifts, however all thoughts and styles are ours and ours alone.

This shopping challenge was a lot of fun, though the word “fun” wouldn’t be one that would automatically come to ones mind when you think of shopping with a 16 year old teen for four hours looking for the “right” outfit. But, watching said 16 year old teen in action while she went back … Continue Reading...
