I Puffy Heart National Cheesecake Day! Any Slice 1/2 Price at The Cheesecake Factory #SayCheesecakeContest


This is such a coincidence, but earlier this week my husband and I were talking about cheesecake with my brother in law for a good half hour. It was so random that my husband suggested we change the subject because we were all getting hungry. Plus it was starting to get pretty weird.  Our chat lead us to talk about our favorite cheesecakes from The Cheesecake Factory. Had I known then that National Cheesecake Day was coming up, the timeliness of our convo would have been more fitting. Either … [Read more...]

One Serum. 90 Seconds. Less Lines. See Before and After! #Alurent90SecondBeauty


This summer, with all the bright sun, things are suddenly really standing out to me. Not in a good way. I'm not often completely smitten with anti-aging products. I just started kind of needing them, so my experience with them is relatively slim. It dawned on me that my days of telling everyone it was my 29th birthday again may not be believed. Wah. I also have sensitive skin, so I'm pretty leery about trying out different products especially on my face. But, seeing and experiencing first … [Read more...]

Chevron Bathroom Decor Made Easy with Exclusive LISTERINE Bottles at Target

chevron bathroom ideas

This post brought to you by Listerine. All opinions are 100% mine. Chevron is one snappy trend that I hope never goes away. Add multi colors to the pattern and you have yourself decor ready for any space. We moved last month and the one room that we haven't done a thing with is the bathroom. It's about half the size of our last one, so it's been quite a huge adjustment. Now that I'm past the frustration of it, I'm ready to make it look as cute and fun as possible. Now, I … [Read more...]
