Holiday Gift Guide 2017: Items Wanted/Early Sponsor Shout Outs/ & Contact Form #holidaygiftguide


This post is currently being edited and added to! I just wanted to get a general guideline up so I could get the ball rolling!  I will be adding logos later today (7/26) Or tomorrow for Desk Cycle,Butcher Box & Batiste Dry Shampoo + Rimmel,Jergens & Sally Hansen. I also have a few other things confirmed/pending :) Hey Everyone! I cannot believe that it is already time for Holiday Gift Guide 2017. I decided to start a bit earlier than usual this year, because I had already started to receive pitches!  I am thinking of starting in Mid August . This is my main post that will have all the information, my early sponsors (they get extra love and shoutouts) and of course a form to pitch me! This post will be pinned for a while, and then I will switch over to the actual guide being pinned at some point, with a link to this post of course! My blog turned 7  years old in May and I had an AMAZING time doing my gift guide last winter! I am not in the reviewing for just whatever I … [Read more...]

living the life ya’ll ;)


Hey Everyone Well. .I have to say that getting up early yesterday really helped me out with sleeping deep last night!  I never did get a nap so I think that helped even more. I was way to zonked to do it all over again this morning even though my mom was planning to go to Christian Ministries this morning and I haven't went there in a while. I got back to sleep pretty easily when David left for work and then around 8:00 they were weed eating or something outside and I was like ugh really- you all know when I get the yummy deep burrowing sleep which is rare for me- I try to get into it and keep it going lol. Oh and when I called my mom she ended up not going to the thrift shop anyways so.. I was thinking maybe she might go tomorrow but she says she has a bunch of tomatoes to can so.. I guess not lol .. I will eventually get back up there! I love going but I don't like wearing it out- and right now they are having like a quarter sale so you know it is a mad house- which it usually … [Read more...]

Selfies & Photo shoots oh my! (no pics in this one though!)


Hey Everyone So I didn't figure with what is going on in my family that my mom would come over today- that is why I spent like 2 hours taking selfies this morning to try to get in an  ambassador program for clothes lol. Anyways, I had been needing a few things that she said she had for me, so she brought them over and I was like ooh you can take my picture ha ha so we had a whole little photo shoot- I think like almost 40 pics all together. I might end up sharing some here. and might even switch out my sidebar pic with one too. I had planned to take a nap around 130 or so but I got to messing around with my pics and trying to pick one and editing it on photofy & on little moments ( I like the filters on that one) and then.. I got an email back about a review for the gift guide so.. the nap never happened ha ha. You all know I can barley make it when I get up at normal time without a nap so this is fun lol. My mom stayed almost an hour so that was a little bit different but … [Read more...]

Early & dress up


Hey Everyone Well.. I am here bright and Early this morning! I am trying this Early thing out for the first time in a while. ...since it seems like I just wake up, take out mars , talk to my mom, eat lunch, and get a little bit of pitching/emailing done and maybe a blog post then it is a few domestic things and bam it is time for dinner!  Which has been just fine and dandy while I wasn't in do all the things inspired mode but now.. it just isn't enough lol. I don't know if you know on gossip girl when Blairs step dad cyrus always says NOT ENOUGH but yeah like that ha ha. Our family got some bad news yesterday... I am not at liberty to share exactly because my facebook does link to my facebook fan page which links here and I don't know who might decide to get spry and stop by and all of that (though you know I have often wondered about that- if anyone in the family has ever clicked on over-if they have they never have said anything about it which is a good thing lol) I am … [Read more...]

afternoon rambles


Hey Everyone Well.. Today got away from me in a hurry. I get in a flurry of emails and pitches and following up and next thing I know it is almost time for David to be home! I had a really awesome Sandwich for lunch. I bought some really over priced quality roast beef yesterday lol. I just can't do cheap meat after my little experience with that corned beef was expired. I am still not quite over it. I know beef is expensive but honestly usually the only lunch meat I can find is either turkey (I HATE turkey) or pork (which we all know I don't eat ) so.. I had to kick it up a notch! Anyways I had some left over scallions and I had a roast beef/mayo/scallion sandwich and it was darn good :) I found a recipe for pepper steak in the crockpot and I was going to make it but then I changed my mind because I only have one pack of steak meat left right now .. + I wasn't really sure David would eat it. I also needed it a bit more thawed so.. yeah. I am not really sure what I am going to … [Read more...]

Groupon Makes online shopping with Amazon (and others) a great deal! #sponsored


2 things I have came to love are online shopping and how to get the best deals when doing so! I of course always am about ways to save money and everything but when it comes to shopping online it can be a little bit more tedious to find valid promo codes and what not - unlike when you shop out in the real world and have coupons that you can get out of a newspaper or even online that you print at home!  I know that in my experience by the time I find a code if I find a code for wherever it is that I am looking that a lot of time they are expired or invalid. There is no need to fret though, because GROUPON can help with that! One of my absolute favorite sites to shop on is probably one that is the most common and that is Amazon! Amazon has really became a favorite of mine for many reasons over the years - I love the 2 day shipping with prime and the amazing deals that I have found there on many items including my tanning lotions and potions and like up to 75% or so in savings … [Read more...]
