LG Twin Wash Laundry System From Best Buy

The reviewer has been compensated in the form of a Best Buy Gift Card and/or received the product/service at a reduced price or for free When Nick and I bought our current home, we were on a bit of a budget. He had just moved out here from Connecticut and I was starting a new life with just my son. We both had decent jobs, but our savings were lacking a bit at the time. Now that we’re doing a little better, we’ve both had multiple raises over the years so our savings aren’t so dismal – we can afford to upgrade the appliances we skimped on when we bought the house. First stop? The washer and dryer! My top pick? The LG Twin Wash Laundry System from Best Buy! This would make life, and laundry, so much easier! With LG’s Twin Wash system you get the best of both…

My Basic Winter Essentials

This post has been sponsored by the PRIMP Network. All opinions are my own Winter has been rough this year. Aside from my normal running around, things just seem so out of sorts.  There’s a few things I always keep on hand though to make sure I’m prepared for this chillier weather! This list will not include my mani must haves for Winter, this is mainly the “everything else” must haves since my mani list is quite extensive! I’ve mentioned I’m a minimalist before right? I know my “must haves” seem like very few items, but hear me out. I change my makeup and lip colors daily. My hand creams change as well. So I didn’t include items I swap out regularly. Hard to be a ‘must have’ if I don’t use it on a “MUST HAVE” basis. Ready for my minimalist list? There you have it, my basics!…

Healthier Winter Skin On The Go

Disclosure: Post sponsored by Mirum Shopper but all opinions are my own. Winter is upon us, and our skin is SUFFERING! I live in an area that doesn’t even have a full on Winter season, and my skin has been going crazy, so I can’t even imagine those in the single digit temps!  As a blogger, when my skin is suffering – everyone knows it, so today I’m going to share my tips for healthier Winter skin on the go! That’s right – these 2 items are lifesavers and my trick for healthier skin. Let’s take a look at why I need them. First of all, it’s Winter, so my skin is dryer, flakier and needs extra TLC. The moisture is just sucked right out of them and without proper care, they look older and well… not very good in photos. Aside from that it’s tax season at work, so…

Maintaining My Hair In The Winter Months

This is a sponsored post on behalf of Mirum. All opinions are 100% my own. It’s Winter time and we’re going to talk about maintaining my hair in the Winter months! Everyone’s hair is different, which is why there are so many choices when it comes to hair products, so if you have drier hair with a slightly oily scalp like me, then this might be what you need as well! Suave Gold Keratin Infusion Shampoo and Conditioner! Since I have a lot of hair, when it’s colder and drier – my hair kind of goes POOF and it’s a pain. Lots of static, lots of oomph (but not the good kind) but with a slightly oily scalp. So the top area looks weighed down and it gets fluffier as you move down the hair length. Ugh. I needed a product that would smooth my hair and control the frizz.…

21 Days of Positivity with Pamprin

This post has been sponsored by the PRIMP Network. All opinions are my own. We all have our negative moments. Those times where nothing seems to go right and life just keeps beating you while you are down. I know I’ve had my fair share of them. When I was younger, I used to focus on those negatives and how ‘life isn’t fair’ and it was very damaging to my mind, body and soul. Once I had my son, I tried changing that. No matter how bad things were, I wanted to have a smile on my face for my son’s sake and really mean it. I wanted him to also see there was always a bright side to things. Was this easy to do? Not always. There were times I locked myself in the bathroom for a good cry so my son wouldn’t see it, but when I was done…
