Part of being a parent sometimes means giving up your social life with friends and sneaking in date nights in the car after the kids are asleep. That was pretty much our mode of socializing. We’d cook up something delicious to enjoy while watching a movie and then head to the car for a frugal date night under the stars. These were some [Click here to continue reading]

Spicy Roasted Corn, Chicken and Avocado Salad

This post was sponsored by Sunshine Sweet Corn as part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central and all opinions expressed in my post are my own. This time of year makes me long for easy lunches that are hearty enough to fill me up, but fresh, light and easy to prepare. My life is busy right. Too busy for complicated meal plans. So when I’m planning my lunches for the week I look for dishes that are easy to make and flavorful. One recipe that made it on my menu this week is a Spicy Roasted Corn, Chicken and Avocado Salad made using fresh Sunshine Sweet Corn, leftover chicken and in season produce.  I found this recipe on under the recipe tab.

On-Trend Affordable Prescription Eyeglasses

These super cute, on-trend affordable perscription eyeglasses and blog post are sponsored on behalf of Gone are the days where prescription eyeglass wearers have to buy eyeglasses from the selection offered by their optometrist. I’ve been mail ordering my prescription glasses online ever since paying $145 for a pair of eyeglasses I didn’t love but bought because were the best-looking pair my optometrist offered. Once I figured out I could order my own prescription eyeglasses online I’ve been doing that ever since. I can’t see without eyeglasses so they’re something I wear every day. If I have to have them on every day, they definitely have to be stylish.  I love to switch up frames based on what I’m wearing or how I’m feeling [Click here to continue reading]

Easy DIY Vanity Tray

This easy DIY Vanity Tray and my shopping trip have been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #SoFreshSoFrench #CollectiveBias I just love those cute vanity trays I see in the home decor store that are labeled with words like “ring” or “lotion”. The ones I see are usually white with black words and didn’t fit the style I wanted for my guest bath so I decided to make my own. I wanted a place to display toiletries and cute decor on the vanity for my guest. While doing some girl time shopping I came across the new to America, Le Petit Marseillais™ display at Walmart. The collection has 17 products and can be found on the specialty bath [Click here to continue reading]

Office Bookshelf Update

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #CollectiveBias Last month I started reading Change Your Home, Change Your Life™ with Color by Moll Anderson and was inspired to declutter and update the look of my office bookshelves. This first phase wasn’t hard after seeing all of the inspiration in Moll’s book. Let me show you what I did. First, I decluttered the shelves by taking everything off. Then I dusted and wiped the surfaces. I painted this inexpensive bookshelf white last year so I didn’t have to do that. I have been using this bookshelf as a catch-all for my photo props, but I want it to be more than just storage. My goal is [Click here to continue reading]
