Easy Canvas Prints: Create Your Perfect Portrait!

Easy Canvas Prints 2Have you ever seen those amazing family portraits that people have hanging up in their homes?  The canvas “paintings”?  I have several friends who have those made every year for their annual family photo, and I’m always envious.  I wanted one, but didn’t really know where to look, and I always assumed it was extremely expensive too!  However, I’m happy to admit that I was wrong!

Barefoot Gypsy Boutique – My New Addiction!

Glasstic Water Bottles – Pure Love!

**Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.  The opinions, however, are my own.**


Glasstic Poolside

I am a water addict.  I drink water all the time.  Sounds pretty random and pointless to tell you, except when I mention that this addiction means that I am rarely ever seen without my water bottle.  Over the years, I’ve collected several bottles that have been my trusted companion, but the newest can definitely be considered my favorite.  My Glasstic Water Bottle!  Pure love.  The portability of plastic.  The purity of glass.

Datevitation: Spreading the Love!

1 - Datevitaiton BookConfession time:  I’m officially the Valentine’s Day Grinch.  I never really thought about it.  Didn’t dwell on it.  Never harped on it.  Which is why it came as quite the surprise when Lynsey (moscatomom) pointed it out. Continue reading “Datevitation: Spreading the Love!” »

Pine Bros Softish Throat Drops – Feel Better!

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertisement, however the opinions I provide are my own.

Pine BrosI know chilly temps are enough to be irritating, but the weather has vacillated between cold and damp to freaking frigid, which is the perfect weather to be in when you want to catch a cold.  Enter my new favorite winter accessory: Pine Bros Softish Throat Drops.  They’ve become something of a staple in my house this winter.  I received a box of them, and have been doling them out almost daily to my kids and friends.  They have kept us from being miserable coughing.  The taste is mild and slightly sweet, so they’re not too “mediciney” to give to my 6 year old (what?! It’s a word!), but they still stifle the coughs and soothed our sore throats.  They’re naturally flavored, and gluten free.  They aren’t hard like cough drops, but not chewy like gummy bears either, which is also something that makes them a good choice for little ones!

While this may come as a shock to most of you, it actually gets cold in Florida.  At least the part of Florida that I live in.  And when I say cold, I’m usually being whiny and thin-skinned because it’s only 35 degrees.  And if you asked me today, that’s what I would tell you.  But this winter has been insanely cold for this far south.  As in wind chills as low as zero.  Now before you start sending me pictures of your thermometers showing negative numbers, keep in mind: This is *Florida*.  As in “The Sunshine State”.  Loosely translated: Warm.  All.  Year.  And even though we know it will be “winter” here, rarely ever is it as cold as it has been this year.  I like to refer to it as Stupid Cold.  So while this stupid cold is still lingering, I’m very happy to be stocked up on Pine Bros Softish Throat Drops!

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.


My New Pre-workout Protein Shake!

Since I’ve started this new journey toward being the best version of myself I can be, I’ve been desperate to find something that will be “breakfast”, but that won’t make me want to yack during an hour with a trainer, or in the middle of a Refit or Zumba class.  It’s been a struggle to say the least!  I am a breakfast girl – I can eat breakfast any time, day or night.  And skipping it when I’m about to get a booty-kicking workout is NOT an option.  So, a-searching I have been.  But this week, I have found my workout morning soul mate in the form of Special K’s Vanilla Cappuccino – their new protein shake!!!  This is definitely my new pre-workout protein shake!Special K Shake Review

Peppermint Bark Saves the Day! #McCormickBaking

*Disclosure: Products used in this review were provided by McCormick, however all opinions are my own.

Every year, I have the same issue.  It is a road that starts December 1, and is paved with the best of intentions all the way to the kids’ last day of school before Christmas.  I always plan to make my child’s teachers a very special, thoughtful, and tasty treat.  And inevitably I fall victim to the holiday chaos that saps my time, minute by minute, until the last day of school arrives, and I have nothing to give them.  Bad mom alert, I know.  But THIS year…..THIS year, I am already DONE!  What?!?!  Yep.  I said it.  I’m already done making homemade goodies!  This year, Peppermint Bark saves the day!
