Christmas at UncommonGoods, an Uncommonly Good Company

UncommonGoods recently reached out to me to see if I wanted to sample a few items from their site and share my thoughts with my readers. I had never heard of the company, but a quick look at its website resulted in a desire to introduce you to the products and the company. Keep reading […]

Photowall – Wall Murals, Photo Wallpapers, and Canvas Prints

Wall decor has certainly evolved since I was a kid. Wood paneling, paint, and ugly wallpaper seemed to be the only choices back then. Times have changed! I recently spent some time over on the Photowall site and I fell in love with what I found there. Photowall has a wide variety of wall murals, […]

LG Tone Pro Headset Review and Giveaway

This review and giveaway sponsored by AT&T. All opinions are mine. I am a very busy mom, like most moms I know. I drive all over, have a long list of chores, take care of my family, and try to get a run in from time to time. I also use my phone a lot. […]

Rugged Bluetooth Speaker – Braven BRV-1

I usually listen to music in my yard while I am gardening or shooting my bow. I use my phone to play the music since my stereo is in the house. The problem is that my phone has the worst speakers ever. I had been thinking about purchasing a Bluetooth speaker to use in my […]

Keep it Simple Silly #SayYes2Less

I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting (#MC) for Little Remedies. I received a product sample to facilitate my review and a promotional item as a thank you for participating. All opinions are my own and are truthful (of course!). Have you ever heard the expression that sometimes less is more? I […]

Indie-Designed Christmas Cards from Minted

Please forgive me.  I know it is still September and Fall has only just begun but if you are like me, you put off ordering your Christmas cards until it is too late to get anything you absolutely love. So even though it may be scorching hot outside, I bring you a glimpse of what […]

School’s In – Break Out the Fellowes Laminator (And a Giveaway)

Back when I was a teacher my favorite part of the copy room was the massive laminator it housed. I found myself drawn to it. I made massive laminated posters and flash cards and whatever else I could think of. So when I was contacted by The Motherhood about reviewing the Fellowes Laminator I was […]

I recently got the opportunity to spread the word about Family Mobile’s unlimited plans (as part of a sponsored post for Collective Bias®), and I took it!

How I Clean Naturally With Non-Toxic #HeinzVinegar

I cook with my household cleaner. Sometimes I grab it from under the sink and pour it right onto the food I am preparing. Before you dismiss me as crazy, you should know that my household cleaner is all natural and non-toxic white vinegar. I always keep some white vinegar in a spray bottle and it is the first thing I go for when I have a […]

Fun with Colortime Crafts and Markers

I recently shared with you that I still like to color. That is very true, but my kiddos love to color and I have endless boxes of markers, colored pencils, and crayons to prove it. We recently tried out a craft from Colortime Crafts and Markers and my little coloring fiends were very satisfied. I was satisfied too because the […]

Danze Faucet Review and Giveaway

I admit to being a kitchen snob. I do not have a Better Homes and Gardens budget but I do like the things in my kitchen to look nice. The kitchen is one area where I believe in using only high quality products and investing some time and money on design and functionality. So when I got the opportunity to […]
