Breakfast is easily my favorite meal of the day. I love it so much, that I don’t limit eating it to the early morning hours, either. Breakfast foods are delicious no matter what time of day or night it is, even the wee hours of the morning are prime breakfast eating, in my opinion.

However, some people have to be a little more careful than others about what they eat. Increasingly, I’m seeing more and more in the media about those who suffer from gluten sensitivities that cause health issues aggravated by certain food products. My sister-in-law lives with this condition and has to be careful about what she eats. Fortunately, I’ve noticed a marked increase in the gluten-free food products available at the grocery store (even in our relatively small town). The newest line of gluten-free food I’m currently trying in our home are Start Right™ Foods Belgian Waffles and Waffle Slider Breakfast Sandwiches. (Spoiler alert: This brand is going on my “good” list!) [read more]

A New Dark Thriller For You, Bookworm

A New Dark Thriller For You, Bookworm - An Eye For An Eye by Caroline Fardig

An Eye for an Eye (Ellie Matthews Novels Book 2) by Caroline Fardig

A New Dark Thriller For You, Bookworm

I love finding new authors to read, but any bookworm out there will understand when I say that choosing a new author to read can be daunting. Walk into any bookstore and you will find row after row of books of all genres with widely-ranging topics. It can easily be an all-day endeavor to stand there reading the backs or inside covers for a quick summary of what a book is about when choosing which one(s) appeal to your interests.

I read authors that are new to me all the time, and it’s just as gratifying as reading (or re-reading) the work of authors I know well. An Eye For An Eye by Caroline Fardig is the newest in a long line of authors I’ve read for the first time in recent years. I have enjoyed this book so much that I will definitely be picking up one or more of the other novels to her credit very soon.

Engraved Glassware Makes A Fun And Unique Gift

Are you looking for a unique gift that’s also a great conversation starter? Uncommon Green offers stunning engraved glassware that features information such as city maps, history, literature, science, math, and so much more. This is such a great concept and I couldn’t wait to have the opportunity to try these out.

I have four different glasses: two feature the map of the city of Chicago, one has a passage from Romeo & Juliet, and the other a monologue from The Phantom of the Opera. Prices will, of course, vary depending on the type of glass and what you’re looking to have engraved on it, but these are very affordable and will add a bit of individuality and flair to your home….

Romantic Table Settings For Two

Romantic Table Settings For Two-Vivanco Wines & Teleflora Valentines 2018 Bouquet

Beauty Brite Disclosure

 

Who says you have to go out to a fancy (i.e. expensive) restaurant to have a nice, cosy romantic dinner? While it is nice on occasion to get dressed up and go out on the town, sometimes it’s equally as nice to have a quiet night in with your significant other. And it can be easier on the pocket book, too.

Two things I think that make a dinner for two just a little bit more of an occasion are flowers and a nice bottle of wine. Since it’s the “season of love” I’ve come up with two in-home settings to celebrate Valentine’s Day with my husband of 25 years. Teleflora and Vivanco Wines are helping me set the mood. [read more]

Get A Clean House Without Harsh Chemicals

Get A Clean House Without Harsh Chemicals - Breathe Air-Fueled Aerosol Cleaners

Beauty Brite Disclosure

I like a clean house just as much as the next girl. But, some of the cleaners I’ve purchased in the past have had characteristics that really give me pause. Namely, pungent chemical odors and sometimes causing the skin on my hands to become irritated, dry and cracked. To be fair, even without cleaners sometimes the skin on my hands will be really dry and crack, but harsh cleansers definitely exacerbate the issue.

It’s a constant struggle when it comes to purchasing household cleaners for me because I’m always trying new brands of cleaners with many different kinds of ingredients as I fine tune my own personal preferences for such products. I tend to really like certain cleaners over others for their ease of use, ability to clean well, and their scent. That’s why I’m excited to share a new line of products I’ve found, Breathe™ — the first ever line of household aerosol cleaners that have received certification from the EPA’s Safer Choice Program.

Could This Device Rival The Clarisonic?

I’ll be the first to admit that I absolutely love my Clarisonic. While it’s one of those love it or hate it products, it’s done amazing things for my skin. The downside to the Clarisonic is the price tag, so of course, I’m looking for a product that does the job but at the fraction of the cost. I think I may have found that product with the My Sonic by Pulsaderm Sonic Washcloth.

Let’s be honest, adulting is hard. Career, family, marriage, and social obligations are all great, but sometimes I feel exhausted trying to keep up with our calendar.

Since we can’t ignore our responsibilities, I’ve learned that it’s important to take time for myself. A moment to have a cup of tea, grab a cozy blanket, put on my pajamas, snuggle up on the couch, and just breathe…. [read more]
