Okay, maybe not into the night…but maybe on Bloglovin! In order to “claim” my blog, I have to create a post with this link: Follow my blog with Bloglovin. So if you’re on there, follow me and I’ll follow back (is that how that works?) I’m new to Bloglovin but I did write a p

I’m back on the Birchbox bandwagon! I’ve missed it and I’m glad that they started accepting new subscribers again (they had been maxed out for awhile). If you don’t remember, I reviewed Birchbox in November and December. This month’s box was great and had lots of variety. I receive

I received my monthly Good & Lovely box this month and I’m excited to share what’s inside. I really loved this box and the variety was amazing. Inside I found: An aromatherapy shower tablet Lavender body and hand lotion Gourmet chocolate covered pretzels Three bags of chamomile citrus tea Topica

It’s that weird time when the weather could be cold one day…warm the next. We had such a mild winter that obviously it hasn’t been that cold out but the temps seem to be ranging between 40-60 degrees. I thought I’d share some of my favorite “in-between” season items right no

About a month ago, I tweeted to Leigh Ann (a freelance makeup artist), “Hey you. I need help finding the perfect lip shade(s) and a brand. Can you assist? Do you do this kind of thing? ;)” She promptly responded and we set a date to meet at Nordstrom during my lunch hour. An hour […]

Did you know that this month Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central Ohio is celebrating their 30th anniversary of serving children and families in need?

IT’S FRIDAY! Happy almost-weekend, pals! I stopped doing Monday Link Love awhile ago but I’ve found such great things on the internet lately so I needed to share. I absolutely adore Danielle Kroll‘s illustration, type and design work. Like…I want to be her friend now. I FOUND THE PERFECT

I found the two photos above (found on Scouts Honor Co./Xnet) and realized how much I adore peach hues. I like to wear peach in the summer when I’m rocking a tan but it’s a fun color to add to your wardrobe as hints of spring start popping up. Depending on what my tax return looks […]

I received the prettiest package in the mail last week. The experience of opening this beautiful scarf was as much of a delight as the actual product itself! Sonya, who I “met” through blogging last year, graciously made this scarf for me with the yarn that I supplied and I couldn’t be more th

Last month, I saw a blog advertisement for Good & Lovely. I remember clicking over to their site and thinking it looked like a fun monthly subscription box. It wasn’t until I kept reading and exploring that I realized it’s even better than just a box of goodies. It’s a box of goodies deliv

Congrats to Marsha and Susan for winning my Lovely Giveaway! When asked, “Who makes you feel the MOST loved?” they responded: I am not sure who makes me feel the most loved. I am so blessed with so many special people. I will say my Little Fellow and I are playing a game of late […]

A few months ago I discovered Turntable Kitchen’s Pairing Boxes via Halle’s blog! I absolutely loved the idea and knew I’d want to subscribe soon and give it a try. The whole experience leading up to receiving my box was wonderful. I subscribed through their website and blogged about it the fo

I got my December Birchbox last week and over the weekend, I finally got a chance to use the products and compile my review! First of all, I was really excited to see that they are donating 100% of all full-size sales to Baby Buggy (with a guaranteed contribution of $25,000). Okay, onto what’s inside: [&h

I was planning on reviewing my December Birchbox today but I wanted to actually USE all the products so that I could contribute to the review other than listing what’s inside. Instead, I thought I’d share some of my current favorite products. For me, a recommendation goes a long way. If a close frie

Download your set of 4 holiday gift tags here! I pretty much never want to spend money on wrapping paper, bows, or tags so I figured if you felt the same, you could download this PDF, print and cut them out a few minutes before the family or kiddos open their presents. Enjoy!

Ugly Christmas sweaters are always in high demand this time of the year. They itch, hold in your stinky sweat, and don’t look THAT great on you (just being honest). What to do? That’s where Vardagen comes in! Vardagen is a clothing company in Indianapolis that specializes in design and hand-printed

It’s easy in the “blog world” to get overwhelmed or put off by the amount of materialistic posts. I never want my readers to feel like that but I DO love sharing deals, fun shops, and supporting companies that I trust. I hate malls but I do love to go shopping. Adam and I budget […]

In honor of Thanksgiving, I’d like to say THANK YOU to all who read my blog and leave sweet comments. When I started blogging back in 2009, I vowed to only blog because I loved it. Not because of sponsors, money, statistics, or self-promotion. I feel proud to say that I’ve kept that promise to [&hel
