Travel Tips: Behind the Bathroom Door #LetsTalkBums

This article is sponsored by Cottonelle

Travel Tips: Behind the Bathroom Door #LetsTalkBumsLet’s be honest. Most people don’t like to talk about what goes on behind closed doors, especially the bathroom door. It’s private time, and as a mom, you know I cherish those moments a child (or pet) isn’t trying to barge in on me. Bathroom time isn’t always fun and games, though if you know me, you know I love to try out new cosmetics. For me, that’s awesome bathroom time.

Today, I’d like to talk about bums. That’s right, we’ll have plenty of room for discussing some other bathroom routines, especially while traveling, in just a bit. First, I wanted to start out with the tougher discussion and get it out of the way. So, let’s talk bums. Continue reading

Decorating the Family Room with Fulcrum Gallery

I have had a blank space in my family room for quite some time now. It’s been driving me crazy.  We used to have a book shelf screwed in the wall over a tall set of drawers, but since we moved all of that to another room and rearranged furniture, I have had a blank space with a wall begging for a paint job.  That spackle patch job has been staring at me for months!

Fulcrum Gallery contacted me and asked if I would review their prints. Finally, something I can hang over the couch to cover that bare mess! I had strongly been considering a large mirror to cover the space, however I found a print that worked better for our wine theme we have going on. Although, there were many other prints in the modern art section I fell in love with as well. Continue reading

Nobody likes uneven skin tone. How about age spots, liver spots, or any of those other spots that show up on your face?  I know I don’t and I’ve found that when I find methods to even out my skin tone I feel better about my appearance. Don’t worry, I haven’t taken a wrong turn down the body image lane. I still know that I’m in control of my image, and I know I look perfectly fine even with an uneven skin tone, however, sometimes, on special occasions, I like to put my best foot forward.

Pimsleur German Language Course Review

I received a sample of the product for review purposes.German 1 Language Learning Course ReviewMy grandmother was from Germany. She died when I was fairly young so I didn’t have the chance to learn to speak German, but it’s something I always wanted to do. In small town high school we only had one language teacher and my first year of foreign languages only offered Spanish, so my second year I chose Spanish II over German I to continue on what I’d already learned. I sort of wish I would have done German now in hindsight because I’ve pretty much forgotten all of my Spanish due to lack of use.

When Pimsleur asked me to review their German I course I couldn’t pass up the opportunity! It’s something I always wanted to learn. Continue reading

Day by Day Vitamin C Serum

I always said, I don’t care about grey hair. I said, I don’t care about wrinkles. I don’t care about those fine lines.

Guess what, I do care about that stuff! Ok, the fine lines and wrinkles at least. I’m sort of liking my grey streak, though I could do without the wiry fly away hairs. I digress. Now that I’m starting to get those fine lines and wrinkles, I have noticed that I do sort of care about them.

It wouldn’t really matter if it was just fine lines and wrinkles. Really, I have no problem with them. I like to think they give me character. Then I put make up on. As soon as the foundation and powder are there…BOOM! Every fine line and wrinkle shows up on my face. I mean, all of them! Continue reading

I’m awesome about taking pictures of the kids. As a blogger, I always have the camera out, and lucky for me, my kids love getting their picture taken.

What I’m not so awesome about, is getting all of these wonderful pictures printed in a format that I can hang them on the walls to show off their awesomeness. Lucky for me Canvas HQ asked me to review their canvas prints and I was all over it! Yes! Absolutely! Continue reading

Perfect Pop App: The Ultimate Taste Test

We had a movie night tonight.

I LOVE movie night. Snuggle time. Chillin’ out in front of the TV. Eating popcorn!

Ok, the popcorn part is something I actually cut back on a while ago because I was tired of all the burned popcorn that emerged from my microwave. I swear, I follow the instructions to the T and I still end up with burned bits. Edible, but not as satisfying as I wish it were.

Pop Secret has a brand new app called Perfect Pop. Continue reading

Putting Society on the Sidelines and Taking Control of My Life

IMG_4206See that up there? That is a who. That who is me. Mary.

Honestly, that’s a face I make a lot when I’m thinking about things and I’ve been thinking of a lot of things lately. A lot of important things. Important to me at least. So, I’ve been making that face a lot.

I don’t want to keep you in suspense, so I’ll fill you in on what I’ve been thinking of. Continue reading
