Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. Accent Studios was gracious enough to provide me with a product sample for review. No other compensation was given. As a single mom, I’m on the lookout for ways to decorate my bedroom that won’t put me in the poor house but that will still allow me to give my bedroom it’s own “flair”. One thing that I’ve wanted to try for some time is wall decals, so when Accent Studios‘ approved me to review theirs, I was ecstatic. I browsed through their site the day...

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....

If you’re like my family, you’re probably convinced bacon should be its own food group. And you should have at least two servings of it each day in order to maintain optimum health. As a child, bacon was a part of every Sunday breakfast. And sometimes it was it even a part of dinner. And it still is today. My dad actually raises us pigs and I end up with a ton of bacon that my daughter LOVES to eat. Seriously, that child turns into Sam from iCarly when bacon is involved. ...

Christmas has always been a magical time in my household as I’m sure you can tell from reading my posts on Patrick, our Elf on the Shelf…or on the pan rack, since that’s where he is right now. In years past, we’ve even gone outside and used a red flashlight in the dark, along with bells, to make it sound like Rudolph, Santa and company were flying over on Christmas Eve. We’ve also dropped shredded carrots and cookie crumbs on the doormat by our front door to make it look like Santa and his reindeer are...

I love to cook. A lot. I love testing out new recipes on my family.  Some end up being huge hits that I make over and over again. And others not so much. Over the years, I’ve been known to spend HOURS searching online for the perfect recipe, and instead of printing them out because it wastes too much paper and ink, I bookmark it. Now if you’re like me, you know those bookmarks build up fast. And there’s nothing I hate more than a ton of bookmarks to search through when I want to make a particular recipe. So when...

I’m a huge coffee drinker. And I mean HUGE! I suffer from insomnia so I drink a lot during the day to stay awake so I can maintain some level of productivity throughout the day. There are days, though, when I get heartburn or a indigestion from drinking too much of it, so when I heard about Tyler’s Coffee’s Acid Free Coffee, I was excited to try it out. When I brewed the coffee I wasn’t overly thrilled by the smell. That’s nothing against the their coffee. I’m just used to the smell of Green Mountain...

Now that Thanksgiving is over, we have a house guest to entertain. His name is Patrick, and he’s an Elf on the Shelf. Three years ago my mom purchased an Elf on the Shelf after I heard about them on Q97.9 while driving home after dropping my daughter off at school one day. I thought it was an extremely cute idea, as did my mom, so she purchased one on Amazon that very day. To say it was one of the best purchases she’s ever made would be understatement. My daughter LOVES her elf. She’s believed he was real since...

Disclosure: This is not a sponsored post. I purchased Electronic Monopoly with my own money. We loved it so much that I wanted to share my thoughts with all of you. The other day I was talking to Amber from Thrifty Ninja and she mentioned she and her family had tried out Electronic Monopoly. I’ve been wanting to buy it for my daughter for quite some time but had held off because I didn’t know anyone who had tried it out. As soon as Amber told me what she thought, I knew I was going to splurge this weekend and buy my...
