bracelets

*product was received. Opinions are my own. Turning trash into jewelry? Yes, that is what caught my eye, when  I received an email from Trashy Crafter. I was so intrigued with what they did, I had to see it for myself! I received a very cool bracelet. But first I must talk about the packaging! The bracelet was packaged in a real map! It was folded around the bracelet and tied with a simple string. I loved this! How unique is that?!? When I opened the map packaging, I saw a unique looking bracelet set. I cannot believe they were made from trash. Very cool! Anyone who is into recycling, going green or just want to purchase fun and unique gifts for them or someone they adore, I would definitely recommend Trashy Crafter!

eczema skin

* I participated in an Influencer Activation Program on behalf of Influence-Central for #AveenoEczemaTherapy. I received a sample to facilitate my review and a thank you item for participating Have you ever had a child (or YOU?) with eczema? If you have, you know it is heartbreaking at times, to see your child all rashy, itchy and just plain miserable! I hate seeing my kids skin in terrible condition :( My firstborn, had eczema, but he grew out of it, thank heavens. My daughter, who is almost 7, ALWAYS had horrible, itchy and dry skin, her whole life. It started around 1.5 years and it has not gone away since. It gets bad some days and other days it is hardly visible. But, it is ALWAYS there, lurking.. Then, with my last child, he has it too. He has it like his sister, unfortunately. His flares up horribly and I can barely use anything on him, ever. Breaks my heart so bad! I have brought all my kids to the doctor, for their skin issues and each time, the doctor told me the … [Read more...]

THE SWIMSUIT CHALLENGE: TIPS TO CHOOSE THE PERFECT SWIMSUIT

2014-10-16_1420

*This is a Guest Post What a better way to enjoy next summer than in a poolside or a beautiful Riviera beach. I am a Latin woman so my skin is fairly tanned, but a fan of oils, tanners and a nice and comfy swimsuit. MY CHALLENGE: Finding the right swimsuit for my not so perfect body. I am not a model. I wish I could use my torso on someone else’s bottom. You understand what I mean? When you look at these swimsuits on any magazine or catalog they all look so beautiful and sexy that you want to get yours right away. If you think you need to try it first…you are wrong…if you do it right you can avoid long shopping lines, parking, crowds and save a lot of time. If you are new to online shopping understand that almost all sites use a filter system. You can shop by color, by designers or sales. Your goal is to find a secure site that has a good collection and high quality suits. No one knows your body better than you and have a pretty good idea on what works for you. … [Read more...]

Addiction In The Family Is Never Easy

file3061340932147

*This is a partnered post. Opinions and story, are my own. I am not sure if I ever told any of you about my sister and her story about her addiction problem to prescription drugs. She does not have an issue with it anymore, but, there was a time when she did and it was the worst and scariest times ever. Not only did my sister have an addiction, but so did my brother. It is a horrible, scary and terrifying time for ANY person to go through or witness. I do not wish it upon ANYONE. I will not go into details as this is NOT my story to tell, it is my sisters story. But, if you or someone you know suffers from an addiction, of any sort, please, know that there IS help out there! You are NOT alone!! People DO care about you and LOVE you so much!!! The turning point for my sister was when she was going somewhere with her family. Her husband was driving and she was in the back seat with her children. Her husband said he looked back in the rear view mirror and saw my sister … [Read more...]

Hello readers! Kristin from Marie Callender’s® here… I am excited to be writing for Kim today! Let me tell you a little more about me. I am live in Chicago with my Bichon Frise, Joey.
