Adorn Your Walls With The Stars

Beauty Brite Disclosure

Earlier this year, a friend of mine shared what her husband gave her for Valentine’s Day and I thought it was incredibly unique and special. Her husband had a star map made for their anniversary! It was the sweetest gift I had ever seen. Before that, I had never heard of such a cool gift.

What if you could adorn your walls with the stars? This is the perfect gift for friends, family, parents, and more!

Creating A Unique Date Night In

Creating a Unique Date Night In -- Hello Fresh meal delivery subscription service

Beauty Brite Disclosure

Since being married to my husband, I’ve learned many important lessons, but there is one that seems to be one of the most valuable.

Always make time for each other.

It’s been written about in countless magazine articles and relationship books, urging parents to find time in their busy schedules to “date” each other. However, this can be easier said than done when you have a family. There are also times when we’ve both worked a long work week and didn’t feel like leaving the house. Our “date night in” usually translated into “Netflix and Pajamas” night. It was definitely time to get more creative…. [read more]

The Perfect Gift for Any Occasion

Are you looking for the perfect gift for any occasion?

My husband and I recently celebrated our ten-year anniversary and eight that we have been married. Thinking back, it’s been a crazy couple of years but I wouldn’t change it for the world. We met through a mutual friend and instantly hit it off. The night we were introduced, my friend warned me as they picked up to go have a midnight game night at Denny’s that her friend dressed a little different. Little did I expect him to be dressed head to toe in black ( a lot of it leather ), a trench coat, and a chain wrapped up his leg. I was a little iffy to be sure but from the moment we met, we became best friends.

Starting Over: Life After Tragedy

Waking up I remembered nothing. The slate was blank, then the sudden rush of pain overwhelmed me. Looking down I realized both arms were splinted; my knee had about ten stitches, and from my calf down to my toes was also in a cast.

Only You: A Summery Romance

 

Only You: A Summery Romance

Only You by Denise Grover Swank

 

Beauty Brite Disclosure

I admit it; I love romance novels. Sound the alarms! After all, romance novels are not usually listed among the world’s most esteemed pieces of literature (even though they can tell us a lot about different cultures’ romantic ideals), and several of them certainly do lack quality writing or unique plot elements. But I love them anyway, whether they’re historical Westerns or simplistic contemporary novels–and I’m certainly not the only one who does–so I was thrilled to receive an Advance Reading Copy of Denise Grover Swank’s new book Only You as a reviewer!… [read more]

Chicken Soup for the Soul: The Joy of Less: 101 Stories about Having More by Simplifying Our Lives by Amy Newmark, with Brooke Burke-Charvet, came into my life at just the perfect time. Four years ago a tornado destroyed my family’s home, sucking up and spiriting away many of our belongings in the process. Much of what was left became water-logged due to the several days of rain that followed. We acted fast and were able to salvage a few dozen plastic totes and some trash bags full of possessions and a few pieces of heavy furniture that escaped the F3 tornado winds and the huge tree that was uprooted and catapulted through my kitchen. Our home, 2,200+ square feet worth of living space filled with personal possessions was suddenly, abruptly reduced to about the size of a couple of storage units. [read more]
