We’re all looking for the next great product that’s going to make our lives a little bit easier — Whether it’s products that actually fix damaged hair, something that will make us all look forward to cleaning our brushes, or a tool that will make styling your hair in your bathroom easier.
One of my all-time favorite hobbies is reading. I have a few favorite authors, but am always looking for new ones to expand my horizons, so to speak. I love to read everywhere — in bed, while waiting for the kids to be done with sports, on the beach or while out on the boat … there is no such thing to me as a place it’s not good to read.
I wanted to share two new books I’ve read recently by authors that are new to me. My Last Love Story by Falguni Kothari is a love story, but not just any old love story. The plot has a pretty great twist to it and it also incorporates something else I love, a foreign culture. What Doesn’t Kill You by Aimee Hix also involves a love story of sorts but it’s wrapped up in a thrilling murder mystery.
I read the murder mystery first and was completely hooked and thrilled throughout that story. It was nice to have a book to follow it up with that was of a different sort of engagement style. Both of these books are really good and were well worth the time I spent living within them!… [read more]
I firmly believe that every person should have a motivating reward to help them get through the week. For me, that’s a favorite blend of coffee. I don’t skimp when it comes to picking out a blend, I search for the good stuff…. [read more]
I’m always looking to add new clothes to our wardrobe, and I’ve found a perfect small business that I wanted to share. I first found this little shop last year, and have been in love with their products since. I always would rather buy from small businesses because you’re actually helping out an actual person and their family. In this amazing shop called Wild Pigeon Clothing, there is something for everyone. So let me show you some of the clothing that I picked out for my children and myself.
Who doesn’t love fashion? Are you ready to find your fashion with the help of a small business?
2017 was a big year of transition for our family! I finished school and started work in the field of my certification. This meant leaving work in the legal field and transitioning into public education. It’s been a change that I was nervous about at first, but I’m so happy I did it. I love being a teacher and working for our local school district. It’s been a real adventure to work with such incredible kids! Nothing is more difficult, but so rewarding!… [read more]
Who loves My Little Pony?
Your pony pals are back with My Little Pony The Movie! Are you ready?
My kids love their pony pals, especially my oldest daughter. Her first 2 birthday parties were pony themed and to be honest when she was really little up to 5 months we would loop the theme song and it could calm her right down. Now six years later she was so excited to hear that the creators are coming out with a new movie. My middle daughter actually went as Pinky Pie this year for Halloween, so we love some ponies in our house. As soon as we got the package she insisted on putting it in right away and she and her siblings sat right down to watch and didn’t move through the entire movie.
Hello 2018 and Happy New Year!
I don’t think any table is properly dressed for a family gathering unless there is some kind of centerpiece that pulls the whole tablescape together. You don’t have to confine yourself to flowers or a bouquet, though. You can let your imagination roll when it comes to what you make the focal point, anything from a bowl of colorful fruit to a display of greenery or any decorative display that fits the occasion.
This holiday season, Teleflora® is decorating my table with this distinctly beautiful holiday bouquet arrangement. While I haven’t yet decorated the house very much, in general, this one simple area of decoration has done a lot to lift my spirits and start getting me in a more festive mood…. [read more]
I love having technology available with my laptop, smartphone, and tablet because it allows me to connect, communicate, and write no matter where I am. However, that being said, I still think it’s nice to have a dedicated writing space in my home.
Whenever I sit at either one of my desks (I have one in the mud room – pictured here – and one in my bedroom) for some reason I instantly feel more productive. There is something to be said for sitting at a desk where there isn’t a television around to distract me from my task.
To create this space, I have incorporated two items that I am currently enjoying very much. DIGIBUDDHA Personalized Stationery is going to give me the opportunity to take a step back to the olden days (lol) and actually write a real handwritten letter to my sister, while the Mobilevision Bamboo Desktop Succulent Holder will organize all of the paper and writing utensils that I use regularly and keep them handy for me to use….

As fall and winter draw near, it’s time to put away those summer clothes and drag out the heavier, sturdier stuff.

Here at Beauty Brite, we have found some great choices to keep your little one looking and feeling great.
