Mothers Day Bath Salts 2

Remember when you were little and all mom wanted was a lovely DIY handmade gift from your heart? Well, that really hasn’t changed. Mother’s Day gifts from the heart are still the most meaningful of all. I’ve never been particularly good at drawing, painting or, let’s face it, any type of craft. I can, however, make bath salts and other bath recipes like a pro. Here’s the cool thing: so can you! Bath salts are little more than a combination of epsom salts and your favorite essential oils. Some throw in a few other ingredients (I’m adding dry milk to […] Read more »

Be a Smart Cookie and Customize Your Own Dog Treats + Giveaway

Smart Cookie Cooper 3

My dogs want me to tell you that while they received complimentary samples of Smart Cookie dog treats (and devoured every last one of them), all opinions belong to them. They also want me to tell you that any errors in dog-to-human translation are entirely my fault. Should I make my pooches sound less hip than they actually are, that’s on me.

Protect her iPad with a Pelican ProGear Vault for Mother’s Day

Pelican Vault 2

Every year, I invest in one big (to me) purchase for my business. This year, it was an iPad Air. I went with last year’s model because it was like $150 cheaper and still did everything I needed to do. Still, at over $300, I found myself carrying it around as if it was a newborn preemie. I know, because I actually HAD a newborn preemie! I’m starting to think I’m more spastic over the iPad than I was over him! No, not really, but seriously, I’m spastic. While the iPad is mostly for business purposes, I do have some […] Read more »

This week is National Infertility Awareness Week, a cause that is very near and dear to me because I spent six years struggling with infertility. Even though it’s been almost ten years since I finally became a mom, I never forgot the pain of trying-and failing-to conceive. I’ll never stop trying to support those going through it.
