My 7th grader had a half day today so we jetted off to an afternoon matinee of Tim Burton's newmovie release today, Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children. Both Nate and I have read the book and to be honest, I didn't want to see the movie. The trailer was already revealing huge discrepancies in the storyline and characters. I loved the … [Read more...]

Just about everyone has an Apple Macbook in college which makes it hard to keep track of your computer. I recently purchased some stickers off of redbubble.com to decorate my laptop. I love how you can search for whatever style of sticker...and there are tons of options! I picked some that resemble different parts of me so I can always locate my … [Read more...]

Apparently I'm going with a shoe theme with today's posts! But this sale was too good to pass up posting about! So I love White House Black Market for shoes. They either make really good shoes or for whatever reason they just work for me because 1) I'm always receiving compliments when I'm wearing their shoes and 2) they are always SUPER … [Read more...]

It's finally fall around these parts! I swear, sometimes it feels like we get very little out of a transition periodwhen we're changing the seasons here in Philadelphia. One week it was hotter than Hades here and the next, I'm shivering at the bus stop in the morning in 47 degree weather. Yup, so that's where we're at - cool mornings and … [Read more...]

Happy Sunday friends! For those of you who read Kristin Hannah's the Nightingale and loved it as much as I do: here's a sale that's too good to pass up! Her book Firefly Lane, which looks to have almost as rave reviews as the Nightingale, is on sale for $2.99 for the Kindle version. I have like 4 books I'm reading right now but I'm snapped it up … [Read more...]

Last week, I posted on Facebook asking for book recommendations for my 7th grade boy. He'll be 13 this winter. This is an excerpt of what I was looking for: I ended up having people responding with all sorts of book ideas for days! I printed out their responses to save for myself and noticed other people were jotting down ideas so I thought … [Read more...]

I've most definitely struggled over the years with wanting to be there for my kids but also wanting to be my own business woman. They are two totally different roles and so many Moms today have both in their lives. In fact, I can't think of many people who don't raise their kids along side having some sort of job or hustle on the side. We're … [Read more...]

Going back to college involves a lot of adjustment and the one thing I don't want to stress over is fashion. Back-to-school fashion requires a lot of thought, time, and money as everyone wants to show off their impressive summer tans and highlighted hair. But, usually after the first week, the work load picks up and the trendy outfits are left … [Read more...]

It's been awhile since I've done a movie release but we're all about this one! Captain America: Civil War will be released tomorrow on DVD (and digital). We saw it in the theater but I'm sure we'll be watching it several times again as I've got a house full of Marvel fans. We like getting the combo packs too since they have the DVD player for the … [Read more...]
