House Calls in the Digital Age with Amwell #momsloveamwell

Stop self-diagnosing and give yourself peace of mind anytime. Enroll with Amwell and bring back the house calls! Don't forget to use your coupon code HASHTAGFREE for a free visit.

I participated in the Amwell blog program as a member of One2One Network. I received compensation but all opinions are my own. Ever wish you lived back in the Little House on the Prairie Days when doctors still made house calls? I sure do. I barely have time to walk down the hill to bring up my garbage before the next trash day, let alone sit in a doctor’s office for hours waiting for an appointment. I have a regular doctor that I see for medical issues, but he has really funky office hours. I also kind of need a […] Read more »

Enjoy Your Favorite Summer Treats without the Burn #Nexium24HR

Nexium 1

This post is brought to you by Nexium 24HR and the Smiley 360 Blogger program. All opinions are my own. Want to hear something funny? I still remember the first time I got heartburn. I was pregnant with Jacob and almost 30 years old. Up until then, I’d never experienced it. I thought something was really wrong with me! While that may have been the first time, it was far from the last. Ever since I was pregnant- now a little over ten years ago- I’ve had frequent heartburn. I suppose I should be thankful, I skated through the first […] Read more »

When Just Waking Up Wrong Triggers a Migraine #migrainerelief

Stopain Migraine

Migraines. If you’ve ever had one, you know that word can literally make you sick. Up until my 30s, I only had one in my life and it made me scream. I had headaches all the time. Every single day, actually. I’ve never NOT had a headache. The migraines, though, they didn’t start until a couple of years ago. Unfortunately, they’re making up for lost time. My Migraine Trigger: Waking Up Wrong I have a migraine at least once a week. I used to get them more often, but I take medicine to help prevent them. My trigger is maybe […] Read more »

Tried & True Home Remedies for Mosquito Bites + Terminex Giveaway

Itchy bug bites driving you batty? Check out my favorite mosquito bite remedies that actually work, plus find out how to safely stop them in the first place!

Between all the rain and the “dog days of summer,” mosquitoes have been out in full force lately here in my area. I’m sure you’re probably dealing with the same thing (unless you live in, say, Australia, where it’s currently winter!). I absolutely cannot stand mosquito bites. I’d rather be stabbed in the foot with a knife than be covered in itchy bites. Being itchy is worse than pain to me. As someone who deals with chronic pain, that’s saying a lot. I usually try to stock up on things like cortisone creams and bug bite sticks, but sometimes I […] Read more »

Share Your Guy’s Epic Moments with Schick

Schick July 3

Sal has been a Schick® Hydro guy since long before I met him. He loves the comfortable shave he gets from the Schick® Hydro 5. I love that he has super smooth skin after using it. In fact, I love it so much that I often use his razors! Well, not the one he uses on his face (while Sal doesn’t seem to mind, I’ve heard that it can dull the razor faster), but his Schick® Hydro 5 stash in general. They’re just that awesome! We all want to look our best for a night out, especially when those nights […] Read more »

The Bumpy Road to Conception: Trying to Conceive When Your Body Doesn’t Play Fair

AstroGlide TTC

I’ve shared bits and pieces of the very long and bumpy journey that I took to conceive my son, but I don’t think I ever really gave you the whole story. Don’t worry, I’m not going to do that now! It’s a six-year story, it would take chapters to go through! I do, however, think it’s time to share with a few of the highlights (or, as they were, lowlights) from my unwanted adventure through the world of trying to conceive. Consider it therapy for me and, hopefully, a little comfort for those of you who are going through it […] Read more »

6 Awesome Style & Beauty Products Made in the USA

6 Awesome Made in the USA beauty products that you'll love!

In honor of the upcoming 4th of July holiday, I thought I’d share a few of my favorite beauty and fashion products that are all made in the USA. Now, I’m not recommending that you ditch all your favorite outsourced products and shop exclusively American-Made items for the rest of your life. That’s not entirely realistic. Maybe for the month of July, though, we could make it our mission to support US products more? Give them a bit of a boost? Shopping items made in the USA helps grow our own economy and keep more jobs here, where we desperately […] Read more »

Easy Ways for Your Family to Be More Sun Savvy

Blue Lizard Sensitive Sunscreen in sunlight

This post is brought to you by Blue Lizard. I received complimentary sun safety products in exchange for an honest review. You know how important it is to protect your skin this summer. I shouldn’t have to really drive that point home, right? Sunshine is pretty and all, but those sun rays are damaging. Sun damage can lead to skin cancer. Ergo, protecting your skin from the sun is common sense. Sadly, many of us still fall short when it comes to sun safety. I stand on my soapbox shouting that we need to be more sun-savvy, yet last summer […] Read more »
