Learn Social Media for Direct Sellers or Entrepreneurs

Learn Social Media for Direct Sellers or Entrepreneurs

Social Media can be a beast or a wonderful tool. It depends on how you use it and also on how others use it. The biggest complaint I have about social media is how spammy some people come across, and I certainly don’t want to be one or really be friends with any of those spammy people. I know a few people who have decided to embark on the direct selling journey – and most of those who I’m good friends with actually do just fine and don’t overdo the social media sales. In fact, it is people I barely […]

How to Raise your Kids to be Bilingual

How to Raise your Kids to be Bilingual

Did you know that raising a child to be bilingual has amazing benefits for them? Learning a second language develops a child’s creative thinking and concept skills. It can help a child read at an earlier age since being able to think about concepts in two languages teaches them how to use language in complicated ways.  If the second language is due to the child’s heritage, then learning two languages helps the child bond with grandparents and other extended relatives. I was raised bilingual since I was born outside the U.S. My family speaks Russian and so I grew up […]

Gwen Stefani’s New Album #ThisIsWhatTheTruthFeelsLike #GwenO2O

I participated in this #ThisIsWhatTheTruthFeelsLike sponsored album review program as a member of One2One Network. I was provided the album to review but all opinions are my own. #GwenO2O I have been a fan of Gwen Stefani for many years now. is one of my favorite albums of all time! (Did I just date myself here?) While I personally prefer Don’t Speak to , there’s no doubt (ha ha) that Ms. Gwen is very talented. So I was excited to get to listen to her new album, This is What the Truth Feels Like and share my thoughts. I also […]

How to Declutter Like a Boss

How to Declutter Like a Boss

How does one small family accumulate so much stuff? I bet you’ve been asking yourself that question, ‘cause I know I have! We moved into this house about two years ago, and it felt like we got rid of a lot of stuff before we moved. But here we are, with a bigger house full of things and stuff we don’t even use on a regular basis. Of course, when we had the baby the house became full of his stuff, and oh man do babies cause a house to look cluttered. At least, the baby uses his stuff all […]

Make Your Own Baby and Toddler Food in Reusable Pouches

Make Your Own Baby and Toddler Food in Reusable Pouches

I’ve been wanting to try out reusable baby food pouches for a while, since we go through the ones we buy so quickly, and they are like $1 each, at best. I used to make all of Baby H’s purees and avoided buying a lot of jarred food, so why not make my own pouches too? I received these lovely pouches in exchange for my honest review.   I was pleasantly surprised at how easy these pouches are to use. There isn’t too much of a learning curve, though I wasn’t able to get the pouch to stand up on […]

Review of Halden Zimmermann’s Guide to High Impact Blogs #HaldenZimmermann

Review of Halden Zimmermann’s Guide to High Impact Blogs #HaldenZimmermann

I received a copy of the book and compensation for my honest review. The opinions are my own. I found it rather clever that Halden Zimmermann’s Guide to High Impact Blogs compares building a high-impact blog to building a house. I like how the book breaks down the steps like building the foundation, then the frame, then the rest. Thinking about blogging like this well before actually starting the blog makes a lot of sense. It is all in the planning and initial research, is it not? Finding a topic you can do justice is just as important as finding […]

Disney Princess: A Magical Pop-Up World review

Disney Princess: A Magical Pop-Up World review

I received the pop-up book in exchange for my honest review. Who’s your favorite Disney princess? And don’t say you don’t know – we all grew up on Disney! Mine is Ariel – I’m a mermaid at heart. So can I just say how absolutely beautiful this pop-up book is? Well like I said, it is lovely. This is a great collection item for the little princesses in our lives, and seriously for adults too. Each page has a stunning pop-up feature of one of the Disney stories, but it also contains two other pull tabs for different stories. The […]

Entertain Your Infant or Toddler during Travel with the Play-n-Go

Entertain Your Infant or Toddler during Travel with the Play-n-Go

We go on quite a few road trips, since even our closest family members live about 4 hours away, and have already had to fly with our little guy too. So an entertaining travel toy struck me as a brilliant idea and something we absolutely must have. I was very excited to get to try out and share my thoughts about the Play-n-Go. I received the product in exchange for my honest review. I decided to try it out on a high chair and see how the little guy will like this Play-n-Go before we take it on a trip with […]

Review of Cell Phone Silicone Stand

Review of Cell Phone Silicone Stand

I received this product for free in exchange for my honest review. I have a rubbery case on my phone, to help keep me from dropping it, but it doesn’t have a stand feature. I’m often jealous of my husband’s phone case, since it does have a kickstand and he can put his phone on the table angled so we can watch a video on it. So I decided to give this silicone stand a try and share my opinion on it. I liked how easy this item is to install and use. Just peel the cover off the adhesive […]
