My Mother’s Day Plans include unplugging it all #SocialBlackout

social black out mothers day

It's Mother's Day weekend and as much as I love you all, dear friends, I won't be online much.  Especially not on Sunday, Mother's Day itself.  Why is that?  I want to unplug, unwind and just chill.  All day.  I won't lie, it will be hard, because I've always got my phone right there, or ...

Tia Mowry hosts the fun, enjoyable new Circle of Moms video series in partnership with Kia, along with her Circle of Moms friends Diane and Stacy.  I was asked to watch the latest video from Circle of Moms by POPSUGAR and share it with you.  When I opened the video I was quite pleasantly surprised to see ...

A note to parents and college students about spending (and what might help)

cash

Today I'm going to share, at the request of Visa Prepaid,  my experience at college freshman year- my experience about money and spending.  Or rather, overspending.  And just how quickly I was caught up in "free" credit cards and getting myself into debt. And no I'm not proud of it. But I'm real and I make ...

Come talk about health tips for our families at the #CDCFlu Twitter Party March 5th

Stay up to date with Recalls Plus

recalls plus

I am willing to wager a bet that most of you, like me, have bought presents- toys, specifically,  to give to children this holiday season. But what a lot of us don't stop to think about is safety- or possible recall. I know that I truly didn't even think about recalls when purchasing gifts until ...

Giving the Gift of Caring #KleenexCares

One of my most favorite songs of all time is Twila Paris' "It's the Thought That Counts" and I can tell you that I've never once heard it without feeling inspired to do for others.  So how do we actually GIVE the gift of caring to our children, our friends, our families? In my world, growing ...

u by kotex tween products

I've been sharing with you my journey relating to first periods, and talking about them, with my 7 year old for several months now (see previous #KotexMom posts).  This is my "final" official post, although I'm sure as the time for her period gets closer down the road, I'll be sharing more once again. It's been ...
