Personalization Should Be A Part of Gift Giving


Beauty Brite Disclosure

Being pregnant was such an amazing time in my life. We had battled with infertility for years and when I knew my son was actually going to make it I was ecstatic. Thinking about names was such a stressful time. As a child I grew up with a name everyone had, “Elizabeth”. May not seem so common but when I was little we had 9 in my class.

Encourage Cognitive Development Through Building Sets

“Mom, I’m Bored” can be the most over said sentence during any school break. I often find myself  stocking up on new crafts and small toy sets just to limit that sentences usage. Do not get me wrong I truly believe it is “ok” to have a “bored” kid on your hands because it encourages them to use their imagination. I also believe harnessing those creative juices can help eliminate several unnecessary battles.

Bake Desserts Like A Pro

I happen to be the Mom who spends most of her time cooking tasty treats in the kitchen for my family and friends.   I personally enjoy cooking and love all things food related! Cooking is such a passion; then we sit down at the table and share about our day. What was our “highs” and “lows” for the day? After dinner, we usually enjoy some great desserts. Even though I love cooking, I have a hard time “baking”. I never buy the right things and just have a hard time creating delicious masterpieces. Baking has NOT been my favorite part of being in the kitchen, I decided to try and fool proof baking box called, Rise Baking.

I often wonder how long it takes people to use up their favorite colognes. Personally. I use up my perfume every couple of months and get on to a new scent. My tastes vary, much like the seasons do and I never really stay with one scent for too long.

After a long work week and crazy school schedule we like to take a night and just relax! Movie nights are truly a MUST in our house!

Innovation In Kids Should Be Encouraged

Innovation In Kids Should Be Encouraged
Beauty Brite Disclosure

Winter is fast approaching and it is time to find activities my son will enjoy indoors. We are big advocates of education and learning through play time. If you were to walk into our home it is not laid out with the newest technologies. We have the latest version of things but I have them put away. The first thing my son can see are educational toys. I feel this truly encourages him to play with them first verses electronic devices. Ever heard the saying “outta sight, outta mind”?

Febreze is my saving grace for keeping my home smelling fresh and clean, in general. So, why not extend that to include my laundry, as well?… [read more]
