Organize Your Beauty Necessities on the Go with EMME Bag


I received a complimentary EMME Bag in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own. I’m an incredibly light packer when it comes to clothes. Seriously, I’m like the anti-girl with that! I can pack an entire week’s worth of clothes in a tiny suitcase no problem. The problem comes when I get to the bath and beauty goods! THAT is where I become the ultimate girly-girl nightmare. As you know by now, I’m totally addicted to beauty products. Not because I’m trying to hide my flaws or anything, I just think they’re fun! One look in my […] Read more »

Give Your Walls Personality with!

ArtCom Read to Imagine

I used to have a huge blank spot on my wall that was just begging for something to fill it. Thanks to for providing the gorgeous piece of art to make it more beautiful and show off my personality! All opinions, of course, are my own. As I mentioned above, I’ve been staring at this big blank spot on my living room wall for like three years now. See, when we moved in, we were only planning to stay for about 6 months, so we never really did much decorating. Six months turned into a year, into two then […] Read more »

Host an Awesome “Meet the Baby” Party with Big Dot of Happiness

BigDot Meet Abigail Cupcakes 3

Two weeks ago, my brother and sister-in-law came up for a visit with my super amazing, adorable niece, Abbie. Since they don’t come up that often, we decided to have a family get-together that weekend. For some of my aunts, it was the first time meeting Abbie. What better way to introduce her to her great-aunts than with a “Meet the Baby” party! What is a “Meet the Baby” party? Pretty much exactly what it sounds like: an opportunity for family members to meet your little one for the first time. Whether it’s weeks or months (Abbie is 7 months) […] Read more »

Destroy Toxins in Your Air with Blueair Sense Air Filter


I received a complimentary Blueair Sense Air Filter in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own. When you live in the woods in a house with three dogs and three cats, the air gets a bit stuffy. My dogs are constantly tracking in pollen, which of course makes me sneeze my head off. All that sneezes sends my own germs hurtling through the air. It’s a horrible cycle. Air filters are pretty much a necessity for me! My favorite so far is definitely Blueair Sense! Filter out 99.97% of air pollutants with Blueair Sense BlueAir Sense isn’t […] Read more »

ClearlyFiltered Clean Water Pitcher Even Makes My Cruddy Water Taste Good!

Clearly filtered pitcher

I received a ClearlyFiltered Clean Water Pitcher to facilitate this review. All opinions are my own. I have the worlds worst water. Okay, maybe not the worst in the whole world, as I know there are many who don’t even have any clean drinking water, but I’d say it’s among the nastiest tasting in the developed nations. For reasons that I haven’t yet figured out, we have sulfur water. You know, the stuff that smells and tastes like rotten eggs? Great, right? We had no idea until after we moved in. Now, I know that technically sulfur water isn’t harmful […] Read more »

Shake Up Some Homemade Ice Cream with YayLabs Ice Cream Ball!

Ice Cream Ball YayLabs

I received a complimentary YayLabs! Ice Cream Ball in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own. Have you ever made your own ice-cream? It’s something I’ve been wanting to do for a while. I even bought a whole maker! I just never got around to using it because I always forget to freeze the chamber first.  With YayLabs! Ice Cream Ball, you don’t have to freeze anything before hand. You DO need rock salt and ice, but that’s easy enough to find (once you look up rock salt and figure out what the heck it is. Hey, […] Read more »

Being #Noseblind Can Cause Embarassment! Febreze Can Help!

Febreeze package

This review and giveaway was made possible by Double Duty Divas and Febreze. I was compensated for my participation in this campaign, but all opinions are 100% mine. Did you know that you can become Noseblind to odors in your home? Basically, you are so used to smelling them that your brain decides they’re not important. Eventually, you have no idea that there is an odor in your house! I kind of knew that, but never really gave it a whole lot of thought. Since we’re having a ton of guests over this weekend, I wanted to get a couple […] Read more »

Total Clean Lineup from Sam’s Club: The Only Team You’ll Need to Clean


This post brought to you by Procter & Gamble. All opinions are 100% mine. Cleaning is not fun. Well, maybe for some people it is, but for me, it’s an incredibly hassle.  The truth is, when it comes to laundry, I usually end up doing it in a frenzy because we’ve completely run out of clean clothes. Dishes, I’m a bit better at, mostly because we have a dishwasher. Also because my cat likes to lay in the sink, and I like to appease her (otherwise she’ll harass me as I try to work!). Total Clean Lineup: Take the Guesswork […] Read more »
