spices for health

I will go ahead and apologize to any of you who have zero interest in FitBloggin' because the next few weeks are going to be jam-packed with lots of exclamation points about it. For those who don't know what FitBloggin' is, it's what it sounds like: a fitness blogger conference. You can be a total newbie without a blog or someone who has been blogging since before people knew what blogs were. You can be on a weight loss journey or you can be some Continue Reading

Giveaway: Bubble Necklace

Bubble Necklace Giveaway

I am an Etsy addict, so I was excited to be contacted recently Diane, owner of Etsy store Blue Bird Bride, to see if I wanted to try one of her bubble necklaces.

Gwynnie Bee New Arrivals

It's new arrival time at Gwynnie Bee, which I affectionately refer to as "the Netflix of clothes." (Check out my other Gwynnie Bee posts here.)

For example, I have wanted to try lace for a while, but couldn't commit to buying a lace shirt I might wear once. I also wanted to experiment with different silhouettes or prints that I know I wouldn't Continue Reading
