Enjoy a Better Pharmacy Experience at Target Pharmacy #TargetSponsored

Target_PharmacyBrochure_v2

Content and/or other value provided by our partner, Target. Before my son was born, I never gave much thought to which pharmacy to use. I rarely got sick, so when I did, I’d just take my script to whoever was close. When Jacob got sick for the first time, I filled his prescription at Target. I’m not sure what made me decide to use them that day. Maybe it was convenience, since I was there picking up other over-the-counter (OTC) meds. I always use Target for OTCs because their brand works better for me than other store-brand meds. My first […] Read more »

Join Dove Deodorant & Change the Way You Care for Your Underarms

UNI_TGT_DoveDeo_Asset1_R2[4]

This post is brought to you by Dove® Deodorant in partnership with Global Influence. All opinions are my own.    Do you love shaving? I don’t, and I’ve never met another woman who said “yay, I get to shave today!”  During the winter, I can get away with not shaving my legs every day and it doesn’t bother me. My armpits? Not so much! I just feel icky when I skip shaving those. Now, with summer coming, I pretty much have no choice but to regularly shave! I have sensitive skin, so no matter how careful I am, I end […] Read more »

Bring Dull Hair Back to Life with Pro Naturals Hair Repair System

Pro Naturals Hair Care System

I received a complimentary Pro Naturals Hair Care System to facilitate this review. All opinions are my own. I put my hair through a lot of stress these days. Once upon a time, I used to just wash it then let it go. That was fine because it behaved so well. Then it apparently reached a stubborn phase and stopped laying nicely on its own. So now, I have to beat it into submission with a hair dryer, flat iron and styling products. On top of all that, I dye my hair every six weeks so no one figures out […] Read more »

Stand Up For the Future by Standing Up for Safer Chemicals

fbshare_03

This post is brought to you by Seventh Generation in cooperation with Mom Bloggers for Social Good to raise awareness about becoming a Toxin Fighter. All opinions are my own. Want to hear a scary story? My mom used to run through pesticide fog when she was a kid. The truck would come spray the chemical and all the neighborhood kids called it “Smokey.” They’d dance in the fog! Seriously! I am completely convinced that my mother’s exposure to these chemicals somehow affected my ability to conceive. Back then, they really didn’t know much about the effect of toxic chemicals.

#Listerine 21-Day Challenge Complete: How Did We Do?

Listerine 21-Day Challenge Follow Up

Disclosure: “I received a Target gift card to purchase LISTERINE® Brand products from Johnson & Johnson Healthcare Products Division of McNEIL-PPC, Inc. and The Motherhood as part of my participation in the LISTERINE® 21-Day Challenge. All thoughts and opinions expressed in this post are my own.”   Pretty much exactly three weeks ago, I shared with you how Jake and I were doing the Listerine 21-Day Oral Health challenge. Our biggest issues were consistency. While we brushed every night and most mornings, we often skipped either flossing, rinsing or both. Flossing was pretty much the biggest challenge, as I tended to […] Read more »

Un-Stuff Your Head Naturally with Rootology Breathe Free Supplement

Rootology Natural Allergy Remedy

I am so excited (like jumping out of my skin excited) to share with you the best natural nasal health supplement I’ve ever tried! I am so grateful that Rootology contacted me to do this review, because I have never felt relief like this! I should note that all opinions are my own. Rootology makes no medical claims and my opinions are not to be taken as medical advice. You have common sense, I shouldn’t have to tell you that. Still, I like to cover my buns! I suffer from year-round allergies. I never really understood how that was possible. […] Read more »

Why I’m Saying “So Long” to My Uterus at Age 38

So Long Uterus

I can’t think of any other good title for this post. I’m kind of surprised I’m writing it at all. Honestly, I’ve never really been a private person, so I figure if I have to get my uterus yanked before I’m even 40, I should at least use the experience as writing inspiration. So why am I getting a partial hysterectomy so young? Well, long story short, I’ve been having horrible pain for two years now and it turns out there’s a giant fibroid hanging out on my uterus. That’s the short story. Here’s the longer version.  Mystery Pain and […] Read more »

Fight Back Against Cancer with Evelyn Lauder and Elizabeth Hurley Dream Lip Collection

Lip Collection 2

I received a sample of the Evelyn Lauder Dream Lip Collection to facilitate this review. All opinions are my own. Those who know me know that I love makeup. It’s just so much fun to try out different colors. It’s such a cost-effective way to instantly change your whole look. I’ve never been much of a fashionista, but I do love playing with color on my face! When I can find gorgeous makeup that also gives back to the rest of the world, I’m extra happy.  The Evelyn Lauder and Elizabeth Hurley Dream Lip Collection does just that. The duo have […] Read more »

#LISTERINE® 21-Day Oral Health Challenge: Three Weeks to a Healthier Mouth!

Listerine 1

Disclosure: “I received a Target gift card to purchase LISTERINE® Brand products from Johnson & Johnson Healthcare Products Division of McNEIL-PPC, Inc. and The Motherhood as part of my participation in the LISTERINE® 21-Day Challenge. All thoughts and opinions expressed in this post are my own.” I am gearing up to take the LISTERINE® 21-Day Oral Health Challenge with my son. Why? Because, quite frankly, our oral health practices need a whole lot of work.  Let me tell you a little story. It starts with a new mom assuming that she’s doing everything right, because really, she’s gotten pretty confident in […] Read more »

From Poofy to Pretty with Karmin Titanium Professional Hair Flat Iron

Karmin 2

I received a Karmin Titanium Professional Hair Flat Iron in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own. After decades of dealing with thick poofy hair, I finally started flat-ironing my tresses about two years ago. Since then, I’ve been on a mission to find the perfect flat iron. The criteria? It has to heat up fast, not pull my hair when I use it and actually flatten nicely. Oh, it also has to be comfortable and easy to use. Pretty is a plus, but not a necessity. With my Karmin Titanium Professional Hair Flat Iron, I’m confident […] Read more »
