So we go to visit my parents in North Carolina a few times a year. Down there, the beach culture seems to involve getting to the beach early and setting up one of these large party tents to help deal with the heat and have some shade for the day. It always seemed like a lot of work to me but also appealing in that you have your own little cabana … [Read more...]

Awhile back, a friend shared what she had done on the wall in her family room. She had a series of square wall tiles that were her Instagram photos and it was just beautiful. I figured she spent a lot of money so I asked her about it and it turns out it was totally affordable! She ordered them from Mixtiles, where you can order 3 tiles at 8x8 … [Read more...]

I've been using their products for awhile on and off and I've just loved everything I've used, along with the mission of the company. Here was my original review in early 2017. I had to … [Read more...]

Every since I had a makeover at Ulta a couple of months back, I've been obsessed with face masks. Not because I had one done with my makeover, but because my makeup artist was talking about them non-stop. This girl was only like 20 but she was already concerned with skin care - particularly that on her face, and all I could think was, I wish I had … [Read more...]

As if my kids didn't already have enough ways to play Fortnite, they are going to definitely be through the moon to hear that it's now apparently coming to the Nintendo Switch! I read all about it on the Verge this morning. It's apparently "leaked" news but coming soon as several reliable sources like Cnet, Variety and about a bazillion other … [Read more...]

They seem like perfect comfy, light cover ups and we … [Read more...]
