‘Lose the Cape: Never Will I Ever (and then I had kids)’ Review

‘Lose the Cape: Never Will I Ever (and then I had kids)’ Review

Before I became a Mom, I know I had a lot of “never will I do this with my kids” or “I will do this specifically with my kids” thoughts. But after becoming a parent, I definitely see how any plans or ideas go out the window and you just gotta go with the flow and survive it. I received the book in exchange for my honest review. Never Will I Ever (and then I had kids) is a compilation of some wonderful true life examples of how parenting is never what you expected and can surprise you in so […]

‘A Mom’s Guide to Home Organization’ Review

‘A Mom’s Guide to Home Organization’ Review

Raise your hand if one of your new years resolutions (every year) is to declutter and organize your home? Well, me too. As I’m working on a review of my goals post, I realize how little I got done this year (being a new mom who works full time will do that to you) so I was thrilled to have a chance to read and review a book on home organization. I received the book in exchange for my honest review. What I liked about : This book contains some practical ideas that are simple to implement but would really […]

88 Handbags make great gifts

88 Handbags make great gifts

I received a lovely 88 Handbag and wallet in exchange for my honest review. Aren’t those absolutely gorgeous? I got a lovely black mini dome purse with a red quilted wallet. The material is sturdy and soft and I like that the purse and wallet have a good shape, so the stuff inside doesn’t change the appearance. I like the look of the quilted design and the 88 logo is pretty too. I also like that this purse comes with a shoulder strap. Gotta be hands-free here since I have enough other things to lug around.  I also love that […]

Your Hands Deserve a Hug, with these Arthritis Mittens

Your Hands Deserve a Hug, with these Arthritis Mittens

I never really thought about how much I do with my hands. As a full-time working mom, I’m always doing something – typing away at my desk, writing notes, making food, feeding or changing a baby, etc. I got excited when NatraCure asked me if I wanted to review their Arthritis Mittens, and yet it took a while for me to find some time to myself to be able to enjoy them. I received the full product in exchange for my honest review. My Experience: The mittens come with specific heating instructions, explaining to warm for about 20 seconds on each […]

Review of How To Monetize A Small Blog by #LukeWeil

Review of How To Monetize A Small Blog by #LukeWeil

I received a copy of the book and compensation for my honest review. The opinions are my own. These days, monetizing your blog is the thing to do. It is definitely something I’ve started doing and am interested in learning more about. As a blogger, getting free stuff is not too difficult, because our reviews are influential and valuable. But blogging isn’t just about getting things for free. There are opportunities to turn a blog into a profitable venture, and I am very interested in making my blog a good side hustle. sounded like a great book to pick up to […]

Moving is Hard, at Least You Can Save on Utilities

Moving is Hard, at Least You Can Save on Utilities

Are you getting ready to move into a new home? When we moved into our new house, wow almost 2 years ago now, we stayed with our former providers since we were under contract and were still happy with our services. But it would have been nice to have a chance to shop around and see if we were able to get a good deal. One thing that is great about being a new customer is you can get the new customer deal. This usually lasts about a year, but then the rates tend to go up once that promotional […]

Comfortable Pumping and Nursing Bra, BeliBea Review

Comfortable Pumping and Nursing Bra, BeliBea Review

I received the full product in exchange for my honest review. My Experience: The BeliBea is the most comfortable bra I own! Part way through my pregnancy, every band of any bra I owned started getting uncomfortable. For some reason, even some sports bras felt like they were cutting into my skin (and at least left the skin red and sore). I tried out various sports bra type maternity and nursing bras, but after a full day’s wear I was uncomfortable in all of them. Then I got to try the BeliBea. It is so soft and hugs my skin rather […]

Review of Jody Rookstool’s Top 12 Places to Visit in Texas

Review of Jody Rookstool’s Top 12 Places to Visit in Texas

I received the book in exchange for my honest review. This is a lovely pamphlet detailing some very interesting places to see in the wonderful state of Texas. Each chapter is well-researched and shares some location history and highlights what the visitor would want to see there. I have visited a few of these already but many are new to me and are definitely going on my future places to visit list. I think one thing I would like to see in this book is a map showing the general areas of Texas where these 12 places are. It would […]

Nemo and Giraffe Children’s Book Review

Nemo and Giraffe Children’s Book Review

I received a PDF of the book in exchange for my honest review. Nemo and Giraffe by Lee Hunter is a cute children’s book about a shy kitty named Nemo and his best buddy, the Giraffe.  The book talks about the types of best friends someone can have and how anyone can be your friend. This book talks about how Nemo stays indoors and (spoiler) is a scaredy cat. The illustrations in this book are simply lovely. Lindy Damen does a great job showing emotions on the sweet little cat. I also enjoyed how the pages alternate in color. The illustrations definitely contribute […]
