How to celebrate a #DisneySide birthday party at a Party Place.

How to host a #DisneySide Birthday Party at a Party Place

Baby Girl turned 1 earlier this month. Deciding on where to host her 1st birthday party was hard considering it couldn't be at home because we're limited on space, had to be a place that would accommodate all our guests and provide fun not just for the birthday girl but also her guests. (who were mainly Little Man and Dottie's friends. All kids that Baby Girl adores.)  While I really wanted to do something at the park because Baby Girl loves … [Read more...]

An easy Brownies recipe {+ A frugal Teacher Appreciation gift idea}

An easy Brownies recipe

This past summer, my Mother gave me the prized recipe book she has been writing in ever since my sister and I were kids. I remember seeing the fat blue book opened up on the counter-top as she whipped up sweet treats galore. The book is filled with recipes from my grandmothers, aunts, Mama's good friends, colleagues and even a few popular magazines at the time. While flipping through the pages, I found an incredibly easy recipe for Brownies … [Read more...]

5 ways to eat healthier.

Kohls Healthy Eating (10)

This year Hubs and I agreed we would make greater efforts to step up our family's eating habits to a higher level of 'healthy'. It's not always easy but taking tiny, baby steps helps. If you're struggling to change your family's eating habits, remember it's always easier to make gradual changes rather than one huge overhaul overnight. Of course that can be possible if you don't have young kids at home but with little ones around, small, … [Read more...]

Inexpensive ways to celebrate Valentine's week with your family.

An easy way to jump onto a Fitness Routine with FitStudio.com {#Achieve15}

Running Shoes

“I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Sears. I will receive a promotional item to thank me for participating.”   Our third child arrived a little eleven months ago and since then it can be safe to say I have no fitness routine whatsoever unless you can count shuttling my older two to school or after school activities and running after a certain baby who has found her feet! A recent visit to … [Read more...]

How to clean a Scentsy wax spill easily.

How to clean a Scentsy wax spill easily (3)

Early this morning before the kids woke up, Hubs and I decided we'd color our grays. After doing Hubs' hair I decided to work on mine in the bathroom leisurely. Everything was going okay till I tried to move a strand of hair away from my nose and in the process banged my elbow on the Scentsy warmer plugged into the wall socket and yes, this happened... Needless to say I had a mini 0h-my-goodness-this-bathroom-is-ruined moment but then I … [Read more...]

3 ways to ensure you don't get caught in (5)

We're into week 3 of the New Year 2015 and I wonder how many of us are still holding good to those resolutions made. As the month slowly rolls by, you may find more commitments being added to your plate. If you're like me, it's not always easy to say no. But for the sake of your sanity, remember that it is okay to decline get  certain commitments. I read this quote somewhere... "Our greatest fear should not be of failure, but of succeeding at … [Read more...]
