Love this. Remember Little Golden Books? Maybe from when you were either a child or from being a Mom? Land of Nod has partnered with Little Golden Books to create a line of bedding that's too adorable and nostalgic. You may remember the Little Shy Kitten or the Tawny Scrawny Lion and you can now find them on bedding for your baby or child at … [Read more...]

Do you feel like you have a handle on it or are you totally overwhelmed? No matter what you answered, there is always something to learn about your options and the … [Read more...]

The best way I can describe Rocksbox is that it's a Stitch Fix meets Netflix meets Rent the Runway business model. Rocksbox is a monthly jewelry subscription service. Like Stitch Fix, you have a stylist who picks out pieces for you - 3 jewelry pieces for you. But here's the difference - you can keep and borrow them for as long as you want. When … [Read more...]

A little over a week ago, I went on a top-secret whirlwind trip to Chicago. I wasn't allowed to share any details about it until so I'm just bursting at the seams to share with you all if you haven't already seen it on my Facebook page. I went to Chicago to witness the first sale of a Red Nose at Walgreens. Not sure what that's about? … [Read more...]

Wahoo! I finally had my first manicure and pedicure of the season. The whole cuticle/nail thing was NOT pretty. As I was headed to Chicago for Red Nose Day, I thought it would be great to go RED. My hands were still cracked and dry from the winter and Neutrogena had recently reached out for me to get a manicure and challenged me to the 7 Day … [Read more...]

My eye area has always been an issue for me, despite age. Even when I was in college, I specifically remember being susceptible to purple bags and lines around my eyes when I was tired. So considering that look I had at 20, you guys can imagine how things look when I'm tired at 40. Disaster! I have many more reasons to be tired these days … [Read more...]

You guys! Remember when I redid my Master Bedroom with Raymour & Flanigan last year? I said in that post that our bedroom was now my new favorite room in the house. And it was. Until last month. When we re-did our family room with Raymour & Flanigan. OMG people. I am so obsessed with this room, I can't possibly even communicate how much … [Read more...]

Stitch Fix Box #6 arrived while I was in Chicago so it was fun to have it waiting when I got home!  It had been awhile since I received my last box - Box #5 was right before the holidays and I had only kept one dress from that shipment and waited awhile to try the next one. {By the way, if you aren't familiar with Stitch Fix, you can visit my … [Read more...]

I love video monitors. There I said it. I find them completely and utterly necessary when it comes to kids, and I am not scared to admit that I still use one for my four year old. It's not that I am worried that something will happen to him at this point, but I love to see when he falls asleep, or if he's playing around in his room instead of … [Read more...]
