13 Weeks Pregnant: I’ve Got a Baby Belly

Today I had lunch with a few friends after bible study. To clarify, I didn’t make it to bible study because my 2 year old decided that 5 AM is a completely appropriate time to start our day. And then he crashed for a morning nap around 8:30. So we just met up for the “social” side of the morning.

As I was leaving, one of my friends told me that I look good, she couldn’t tell I was pregnant. And inside I was like, “Score! I’m effectively dressing my prego bod!”

Pin Up Tease Mascara

I was wondering around my local CVS the other day as usual and I decided to stop by the NYX section. They are fairly new to my CVS and since I have discovered them I just keep buying more and more pieces to add to my ever growing collection!  The price says nothing about the quality when it comes to NYX Cosmetics. Trust me!!…

If you didn’t already know this, I write for a living. Well, back that up. I consult for a living. And a big part of that is freelance blogging.

But this isn’t want I’ve always done. I have a strong background in marketing and finance, writing, public speaking and just generally running businesses.

Deciding to do what I do for a living wasn’t an easy jump. It took years of back and forth, being afraid of fully making that leap, dipping my toe in the water, walking…

Capturing everyday moments

Do me a quick favor: Scroll through your phone and find a picture of an everyday moment. Something unscripted. One where nobody is looking at the camera. It's hard to find, isn't it?

Bee Sili SUPER Silicone BBQ Grill Oven Gloves & Basting Review

I'm going to be honest. When I opened the package and took a good look at the Bee Sili Silicone Grill and Oven Gloves, I DID NOT think they would actually protect my hands when handling hot food. They're a pretty pair of gloves and includes a really nice...FREE basting brush, but I mean really?…
