Extra Credit: Beauty Tips for Allergies

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Zyrtec for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.


Do you have allergies? I’ve been battling allergies my entire life. Some days are fine and others are terrible. My son has allergies too. Lately, we both switched to ZYRTEC® and we’re both much happier and have our allergies under control.

Little Crafts: kiwi crate holiday fun

Kiwi Crate 12I’ve mentioned before that my son is now a teenager – so when Kiwi Crate asked me to review their holiday craft crate geared for kids age 3-7, I had no choice but to borrow some little crafters. My friend Katy also has a teenage son but she has lots of nieces and nephews who were happy to help out. How cute are these happy crafters?

Good Taste: holiday favorites with philadelphia cream cheese

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of PHILADELPHIA cream cheese for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

I have to confess, one of my favorite things about the holidays is all the yummy food. Don’t get me wrong, I am very into the true meaning of the holidays but a ridiculous amount of delicious food is prepared, shared, given and eaten during the holiday season. And I enjoy every bite!

Good Taste: enjoy the holidays with an edward’s pie {giveaway}

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Edwards for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

One of my favorite desserts is a chocolate cream pie. I consider it in a totally different category than fruit pies - I love those too but chocolate cream pies are so light and fluffy. And although I enjoy baking, it’s hard to find time around the holidays to make everything homemade.

Fresh Look: Color+Plus with Lamps Plus

Lamps Collage
I’m thinking about changing the color scheme in my living room. For years, my living room has been beige and white with touches of blue and gold. I need to possibly break out of my neutral phase and get bold.

Celebrations: sparkle & glitter with Tulip Shimmer

It’s that glittery time of year. I’m usually not a sparkle and glitter type of person – except around the holidays. Then I love the look of silver, white and iridescent glitter.

210091Can you imagine winning a $5,000 yard makeover. There are so many things I would do to our yard – starting with new privacy trees or hedges along our back yard wall. From there I would redo all my flower beds so I could have beautiful cut flowers year round. It would be amazing!

Good Taste: good morning with Dunkin’ Donuts coffee

Sugar 8_thumb[3]Photo Source: homework

We are a coffee family. Coffee is a must-have every morning. I usually give myself extra time in the morning to enjoy my coffee – usually perusing blogs and creative sites - before I rush out the door. It’s a little bit of “me” time in the morning.

But I miss having coffee with my husband. He leaves for work very early so we don’t even see each other most mornings and the weekend mornings have become equally busy.

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Sharpie®. All opinions are 100% mine.

I wouldn’t say I was Sharpie® obsessed but it’s very deep love. I always feel very empowered when I use one of my Sharpies because, you know, it’s permanent. These are some of my Sharpies.

Etceteras: dreaming of redecorating

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Havertys Furniture for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

Havertys 7I would love to redecorate my house. There are some areas that I’m satisfied with but overall there are so many things that need freshening and some areas that need a complete overhaul. If I did redecorate, I would love to go light and bright like this room from Havertys: Discover Something You.
