Art Line In The Classroom – Tuesday Tools, Tips & Tricks

J's teacher was looking for an art line to be put up across the classroom so she could clip the kids artwork on it. When she asked for a volunteer to help with putting one up I immediately told her I'd take care of it, and called my mentor/father. At the time she asked she had no clue how to facilitate an art line, so we came up with a plan. I described to him my thoughts, and as usual he made it … [Read more...]

Red & Turquoise Color Combination – Fashion Friday

My favorite new color combination for this spring is red and turquoise. The contrast of bold colors is amazing and really does bring a sense of spring and joy in the air. For a bold red and turquoise combonation, but an everyday summer look, go with flowy dresses and wedges or sandals. Day Dresses by Calvin Klein Sandals by Bandolino Maybe you want to go subtle, consider adding … [Read more...]

Schick Play It Smooth + {Giveaway}

My skin is a mystery in contradictions that no one can solve including me. My legs are dry and sensitive, and I have to be really careful with what shaving products/razors I use. I started to use Schick Quattro for women razors, and found out that it in fact does not irritate my dry sensitive skin. In addition I became a huge fan of Skintimate Shave Gel when it first came out. Does that age me? … [Read more...]

Refinishing Wood Furniture

I've had people compliment me on furniture pieces in my house, and when I tell them it was a piece of furniture that I had refinished, they cannot believe I would do that, let alone do it well. The truth is that anyone can do it. Refinishing furniture is not something you need expertise in. When we bought our new house I was on the prowl for great pieces of furniture that I could refinish. We … [Read more...]

Save The Children #Japan #Earthquake – Post With A Purpose

Japan was hit hard by an earthquake the likes of which we have never seen. I watched live on TV as the Tsunami was dragging buses and cars like matchbox cars across the country. I was riveted and couldn't even imagine what would be going through mind if I was there. We all sit here wondering how we can help, what can we do? It seems a million miles away, but then it's right here facing us in … [Read more...]

The Lessons I Learned at Bloggy Boot Camp – San Diego Style

I know it sounds like I'm about to tell you the lessons I learned at Bloggy Boot Camp in San Diego, however, this will not be a post about what the speakers had to say.

Some of the Social Media Moms (@SMMoms) who were at Bloggy Boot Camp (@BloggyBootCamp) San … [Read more...]

Gorgeous Etsy Clothing – Fashion Friday

Yes I have a huge obsession with Etsy. I admit it, and maybe I need an intervention, but I'm unwilling to do anything about my obsession. My new search is gorgeous clothing, and boy have I found a gold mine, or at least I feel that way. I discovered Ananya when I was looking for skirts. The a-line skirts are beautiful, and I love the polka dot fabric skirts. However the dresses with the pleated … [Read more...]
