Get Clear Scalp and Hair for Less at Walmart


I have a crazy amount of hair. It’s long and thick, which means it’s kind of a pain to wash. I am really thinking about getting half of it chopped off again. I usually get it cut to my shoulders every summer but skipped this year. I decided to see how long I could grow it. Committed to this experiment and everything! Now I’m rethinking it and itching to get it chopped. It’s not like it doesn’t grow fast! Ever see Interview with a Vampire? You know how Claudia’s hair grows right back the minute she chops it off?

Tips to Stay Healthy During Cold & Allergy Season

Healthy at Walmart Group

This post is brought to you by Walmart. All opinions are my own. Fall packs a double-whammy for me and my son. First, we both have dreadful fall allergies. The leaves haven’t even started changing yet and I can already feel them coming on. Every day for the last week I’ve woken up sneezing my head off.

Half the time I can’t tell if I’m suffering […] Read more »

Erase Signs of Aging in 90 Seconds with Alurent


I received product to review through partnership with Alurent. All the opinions included in my review are my own. With just under a year before I hit the big 4-0, I consider myself pretty lucky when it comes to my skin. It’s all thanks to my grandmother, who passed on her fabulous skin to all the women in the family. Still, I have noticed these lines in my forehead that weren’t there 20 years ago! I’m not thrilled with this at all! The problem is, I just don’t have the dedication to a complicated anti-aging skin care routine. I want […] Read more »
