Twice Upon a Time Book Blast: Queen of Hearts Coffee Cup Giveaway


  I am really excited to share this book with you today, especially S.M. Blooding’s story in it. You know how much I LOVE Alice in Wonderland, right? Well, SM’s story in the collection is a re-imagining of the story. Now, Alice has been re-imagined and remastered many, many times but I honestly have to say, based on the story blurb, I’ve never seen it done quite like Blooding’s take. I’m really looking forward to seeing how she spin’s Red’s story. Check out the book blurb, then learn a bit more about SM Blooding’s story and the author herself. Then, […] Read more »

Look Your Best During Cold & Flu Season #PassThePuffs

Puffs look your best

I participated in the Pass The Puffs blog program as a member of One2One Network. I received compensation but all opinions are my own. This winter has been brutal for those of us in the mid-Atlantic and New England states! As most of you know, I live in the Poconos. For those of you not familiar with the area, it’s smack dab in the middle of the journey between Philadelphia and NYC, about 90 minutes from Philly and maybe 75 minutes from NYC, depending on traffic.  So basically, I’m right in the middle of two areas on high alert for […] Read more »

Help Fund Safe Births Around the World with Kangu #KanguMama

Jacob newborn

I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central and Kangu. I received a promotional item to thank me for my participation. Want to hear something a little scary? My son and I are alive today simply because of my geographical location. Why? At the end of my pregnancy, I developed severe preeclampsia. Without medical attention, either my kidneys would have failed or my high blood pressure would have caused a stroke. Not sure which would have killed me first. Jacob was born at 32 weeks. He wasn’t breathing when he came out via emergency c-section. Neither one […] Read more »

Hoodsbee: The Hoodie That Becomes A Friend + Giveaway


  Kids don’t typically think too fondly of clothes.  We’ve all seen that common scenario go down, right? A child opens a handful of toys with excitement and then unwraps a pair of pants and a shirt. They take a quick look, toss them to the side, and move on.  I can’t say I blame them; to a child there really isn’t anything too thrilling about a standard piece of clothing. Unless of course, you can find a way to combine clothes and toys together. A design team at a company called HLL Design created a way for a fully […] Read more »

Explore the Cultural Side of Puerto Rico


This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Puerto Rico, The All-Star Island. All opinions are 100% mine. Have you ever been to Puerto Rico? I have! Back in 2010, I stopped there when I went on a cruise. I was only there for a couple of hours and didn’t get to see nearly as much as I wanted. One thing I did get to see, though, was the super cool fort in Old San Juan! I’m so glad we took the time to check it out. It was such a neat experience for my son! He […] Read more »

5 Unbelievably Easy Secrets to Achieving Work-Life Balance as a WAHM

Stop letting work ruin your life. Check out these incredibly easy and actionable secrets to achieving work/life balance as a work at home mom.

Six months ago- heck, even three months ago- I was the LAST person who should’ve been writing an article on achieving work-life balance. I let the scales tip so far in favor of work that I actually cried myself to sleep from the stress. Life? I couldn’t even tell you what that looked like. My son was acting out because he was tired of hearing the words “not now, Mommy’s working” come out of my mouth. My weight skyrocketed because I NEVER got out of my chair and most of my meals consisted of cookies that I could eat with […] Read more »
