Get Back to Being Mom with Chloraseptic Sore Throat Relief #RealRelief


This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Chloraseptic®. All opinions are 100% mine. As I write this, I’m battling one of my worst colds of the season. Alas, it’s not my ONLY cold so far, but it’s definitely the worst. Along with the usual suspects, this strain has brought its good friend sore throat to the mix. Fun, right? Not when you’re a single mom and you have a million things left to do before the holidays! I simply don’t have time to be sick. Everyone keeps telling me to rest and I look at them […] Read more »

Holiday Hosting Made Easy with Nokia Lumia 830 & Cortana

Nokia Holiday Party Collage

I received complimentary goodies & a Nokia Lumia 830 review device for this post about holiday hosting made easy. All opinions are my own. Rather than trying to go house to house on Christmas day, our family all gathers at one location the weekend before the holiday for a huge party. Since our house is the central location, we’re usually the hosts. My mom lives with me, and honestly, she does all the really hard work: baking, cleaning, etc. I handle smaller details, like decorating, running to the story 500 times for random little things and what not. It’s a […] Read more »

Gorgeous Wood Serving Sets at REASONABLE Prices from Pacific Merchants

Breakfast in Bed Pacific Merchants

I received a complimentary Breakfast in Bed set from Pacific Merchants in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own. I’ve been searching high and low for a gorgeous wood serving set that doesn’t cost a fortune. Honestly, I would have just settled for a pretty tray! I wanted it to use for our upcoming holiday party, but also for photo backgrounds. Most of the sets and trays I saw cost what I consider an insane amount. The sad part? They weren’t even that great. I’m talking tiny, cheapo serving trays made of questionable wood (probably particle board, […] Read more »

Change Your Home Decor Instantly with SwitchArt

SwitchArt 1

I received a complimentary SwitchArt Magnetic Frame and set of prints to facilitate this review. All opinions are my own. Ever wish you could change your wall art instantly, without going through the hassle of taking one giant piece down and putting another up? When I put up a piece of art, it takes me forever to get it just right. First, I have to find just the right spot. Then I have to make sure it’s not crooked. Step back, examine, straighten, repeat. Over and over until it’s perfect. The last thing I want to do is take it […] Read more »

Naturally, you pop in a video or catch a streaming video. With at least a dozen good movies to pick from, I’ve made a list of the top 3 I thought were […] Read more »

Redbubble Laptop Skins

Giving gadget gifts this holiday season? Redbubble has the coolest companion gifts to go along with them: spiffy new skins! Jacob was super excited to get to try one out.  He picked “A Funny Squirrel” by the talented artist, Sparafuori.  Here is the full-size version, which shows the colors more true to life. Yes, they really are that vibrant.     Alas, I am incapable of measuring things and gave them the wrong size, so I had to trim down our skin quite a bit. That is totally on me.
