First Impressions and LISTERINE®


This is a sponsored post. I received LISTERINE® Brand products from Johnson & Johnson Consumer, Inc. as part of my participation in this project. All thoughts and opinions expressed in this post are my own. Walking into a room full of people I don’t know can be really nerve-wracking. I tend to psych myself out and imagine […]

Feeling Better During That Time of the Month


I’m talking about exactly what you think I’m talking about, so if that makes you uncomfortable (especially knowing that I’ll be talking about breast discomfort), come back tomorrow. But if you have this problem like I do, keep reading. This is a sponsored post, and I hope it will have some helpful info in it […]

The Un-Instagram-able


This is not another one of those “10 Things You Should Stop Posting on Instagram” types of posts. I read those and think well, damn, what’s left, then?  Keep posting your food, babies, selfies, coffee, shoes, outfits, your legs at the beach or pool, pregnant bellies, flashback pics, pics of the sky, the weather near […]

Stronger Hair with Pantene


I was on a mission earlier this summer: find something that would make my hair feel clean. I’m not sure exactly what was going on- if it was the humidity or just build up or what was going on, but I’d wash my hair and it still wasn’t feeling clean. I hit up Pinterest and […]

Hang On To Those Pictures


I was ready to be home. After three very busy days in New York City, I sat at a crowded airport gate, waiting for my flight to be called, too distracted and tired to focus on any of the books on my Kindle. To pass the time, and to take a break from the phone […]

Best Board Games for Adults

best board games for adults

Getting a babysitter is expensive. So more often than not, when we have a couples’ night, it involves bringing everyone’s kids to one house where the kids can play upstairs, then the adults snacking, drinking, and playing board games downstairs(well, when we aren’t watching some sort of sporting event). It makes for a fun and […]

Meditation for the Rest of Us

meditation tips

The notes for this post have been in my phone for over two years because I wanted to share these tips, though this is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Sara Lee®. Exercise. Healthier eating. Drinking more water. Getting more sleep. These are all things that we know we need to do to […]

That Kind of Girl

rain boots

There was a group of girls huddled by the fireplace, warming themselves up since it was cold and rainy outside. I use girls in the Southern sense of the word, meaning not necessarily young girls(I love that I can still say “girl” and not “woman” even though I’m nearing 40). These girls wore various tops […]
