Everybody’s Crazy About a Sharp Dressed Baby

This post is sponsored by Zulily and contains affiliate links because I shop there too much! Okay, not too much… I love good discount sites so I adore Zulily. Even though they carry some women’s items, I mostly shop there for the kids. About a month ago I bought Rissa some really


Last Minute DIY Halloween Costumes for Mom

I have a confession. I didn’t put a Halloween costume together this year. I was too wrapped up in what the kids would dress as and figuring out the logistics of their birthday party. Since the party is after Halloween and is not Halloween themed this year, I just didn’t think about


Toddler & Baby Style: Bringing Out the Fall Clothes

This post about transitioning to fall clothes is sponsored by Gymboree. We received a gift card to go shopping for the kids. We had a pretty mild summer, but it’s time to begin packing away the shorts and bringing out clothes for the fall season. It will still be pretty comfortable short


5 Simple Tips to Look Better on Video

Video is everywhere! Video calls, hangouts, trainings.  Video content.  Video apps.  Pictures aren’t enough anymore – people want to see you move and talk. I’m dabbling more and more in video through vlogging and Google Plus Hangouts.  No longer can I stay in my pajamas or yoga pants without a bra or


How to Cover Gray Roots Between Dye Jobs [VIDEO]

This is a follow up to my review of Rita Hazan Root Concealer since I am still using this product a year later. Ever wonder which products your favorite bloggers continue to use months – even years – after you read their review?  Many of you know that I continue to struggle

Pay Less for Stylish Holiday Gifts

When I go shoe shopping, the first place I like to go is Payless Shoe Source. They tend to have great deals whenever I need a new pair of shoes. I hate ordering shoes online because I have wide feet. It’s very important for me to actually try shoes on before buying.


I Was Transformed for the Disney Consumer Product’s Glamorous Cinderella Showcase Dinner

I don’t get pampered very often, at least not lavishly.  (My husband does a great job with the day-to-day stuff, don’t get me wrong!).  It wasn’t long ago that I shared with you that I got my second pedicure ever in my life.  I didn’t get another one while in LA, but


My Second Pedicure Ever

My feet ache in a way I haven’t experienced in quite awhile. I knew NYC and a conference would mean a lot of walking but I forgot about all the standing! I made sure to bring comfy shoes that were broken in (at least partially); however, I could have worn pillows and


Just Jen Custom Rhinestone Fashions Review & Giveaway (US) 1/19 closed

I never used to be big into custom shirts or rhinestones, but the two go together very well on little girl’s clothes… and on women’s shirts too if it’s not overdone. It’s actually kind of feminine looking. While there are tons of premade shirts out there, sometimes no one can capture what


Socks4Life Review & $25 GC Giveaway (US) 1/18

I’m about to share a very interesting tidbit with you. I love socks, but I hate feet. I know… it’s a little contradictory in a way, but it’s the truth nonetheless. It’s funny… I love socks, my daughter won’t keep them on, and it’s one of her first words! While some may
