For my birthday in July, my mom got me a $25 giftcard for Target. I’d yet to use it. I’d searched the site a couple times but couldn’t decide what to use it on. I saw shoes I loved but I have to be careful when purchasing shoes online because I have wide feet. I also saw some really cute clothes, but again, I have to be careful because of my body shape and my boobs. On Thursday night I finally decided to spend it on a bunch of e.l.f. products. I purchased the following: e.l.f. Mineral Starter Kit – Deep –...

Last night I bought three new shirts from Walmart for this fall. I was in desperate need, to say the least. I don’t have many nice shirts to begin with. Most have shrunk or are stained. I found three last night that I absolutely loved and since they weren’t expensive, I bought them. And the best part is, at least according to my mom, my boobs are completely covered when I wear them. Unfortunately for me, I am a busty girl. I always have been so I do have to be careful when dressing myself. I think I did well this time,...

As a single mom, I’m always trying to find cheap and affordable ways to workout and stay fit that don’t require hours of exercise per day. I love workouts that get the job done in a short amount of time and keep me entertained. Thanks to a couple friends of mine, I’ve taken to searching YouTube for great workout videos that are short and can be done every day. My best friend Amber from Thrifty Ninja sent me a link to a workout video by Tiffany Rothe a few weeks back and I couldn’t wait to try it out. Her workouts...

Since January 2011, I’ve been trying to get myself into shape by losing weight and exercising. Certain events in my life have derailed me a couple times since then, but I have managed to lose almost 50lbs. And no, I didn’t go to a gym to do it. To be honest, I’m not big into the gym atmosphere. Maybe if I had someone to go with, it would be different, but I don’t, so I workout at home. And it works just fine for me. ...

If you’re a parent, you’ve probably seen your kid swallow some strange things over the course of their younger years. Heck, if your the parent of older children, you still may have. I distinctly remember former football player friends eating worms. Yuck! Yesterday I read an article about a three-year-old from Portland, Oregon, who swallowed not one, not two, but THIRTY-SEVEN  high-powered rare earth Buckyball magnets. Luckily, the little girl survived, but it got me to thinking about the insane things kids will swallow…or...

Disclosure: 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.Last night I finally had a chance to try out the Spongeables PEDI SCRUB Foot Buffer that I received in the mail for review. I was anxious to try out the one I received because the bottoms of my feet tend to get very dry and rough, especially during the winter, and I’m constantly on the lookout for products to combat those problems....

I can’t believe that I almost forgot today was Cyber Monday.  Luckily, Kohl’s sent me an email with a discount code in it and it reminded me what today is. When I saw I could use my Kohl’s Cash online, I got excited and figured I’d purchase my kiddos their Tom Brady jerseys through the Kohl’s website and save myself the trip to Rochester. My daughter’s jersey was a normal $50. On sale it was $34.99 My son’s jersey was a normal $45. On sale it was $31.50. I had $60 in Kohl’s Cash plus...
