My New Nail Obsession: Jamberry!

Applying my #Jamberry nails! A review and #giveaway from

**I received Jamberry nail products in order to facilitate this review. My opinions are honest and my own.** All About Jamberry Over the years I've had to face to harsh truth that my nails are not the best. I damaged them permanently when I was a tween with acrylic manicures. The dremel tool left permanent ridges in my nails due to cuticle damage. So, as an adult, my only options for manicures tend to be gel polish. While gel polish is awesome, it's time consuming and can be expensive. I … [Read more...]

Leaving Work to Become a Stay at Home Mom and Fighting Feelings of Inadequacy

Leaving Work to Become a Stay at Home Mom and Fighting Feelings of Inadequacy: The Day I Became Hope from thirtysomething - #parenting #mom #SAHM #life

The Day I Became Hope from thirtysomething If you're my age, or younger you may not get this reference. thirtysomething was a television show in the late 80s, early 90s, written for my parents' generation.

With all that being said, it's still a decent show and better than most of the crap on TV now. My husband disagrees. He hates thirtysomething because he says the … [Read more...]

LifeLock: Protecting Your Credit and Future #LifeLockSafety

LifeLock Review #LifeLockSafety from

**This is a sponsored post, Granolaish was compensated and offered a LifeLock membership in order to facilitate this review. All opinions are my own and honest.** I can remember the ad campaign from LifeLock's launch very well. The announcer put his social security number on a bus (I think it was a bus) and paraded it around town saying it was safe from theft because of LifeLock. I remember thinking, Wow, how is that possible? He's crazy! Since college I've used a competitor's credit … [Read more...]

Indoor Climbing for Toddlers: ECR4Kids Review & Giveaway

All opinions are my own and honest.** If you're like me you have a rambunctious toddler who likes to climb, so I'm planning a series of posts about indoor climbing options.
