Gabby Duran and the Unsittables

Gabby Duran

I have always encouraged my children to read. I am all for literacy. Even where I work we promote literacy and give out books to all the kids we see when ever we can. We also like to read to the children whenever possible. I love books that are truly creative and encourage a child to use their imagination. There is a book that will soon be released … [More...]

Movie Review: Helicopter Mom – now available on VOD

Helicopter Mom

  As a mom I have always been concerned about my children's health and well being. There was a time I would onlyallow them to walk the dog directly in front of our building so I could watch them from the window and I would stand out in the hallway and watch them downstairs when they got the mail from our mailbox. Some people might say I was a … [More...]

Often these products are known as "As Seen on TV" products. As Seen on TV is really a brand, or rather TeleBrands is.

Vote for your favorite from Vans Custom Culture competition

Vans Custom Culture

  Growing up I loved being barefoot. The moment I got home from school I would kick off my shoes. I was always playing outside in bare feet too. Maybe that is why I am not much of a shoe person as an adult. I have a few pairs of shoes but I usually only wear sneakers. I am more comfortable in sneakers than I am in dress shoes. I keep a couple … [More...]

Check out what is new from Edy’s (Dreyer’s) – Frozen Custard

Edy's Frozen Custard

  It's that time of year ago when families and sports teams like to stop by their local ice cream parlor to enjoy a cold, creamy treat. My family will occasionally stop by our local ice cream shop, but ideally we like to enjoy our ice cream at home. It's by far a lot less expensive and we are able to create almost any treat we want using a … [More...]

Google Play Music

  I love listening to music. I am a firm believer in that music can really alter your mood. For example, when I am going to work on a wet, dreary Monday morning I like to listen to happy, upbeat music to lift my mood. After all, who wants to go to work on a rainy Monday? When I am cleaning I'll play high energy tunes to get my blood pumping … [More...]

Wrap your wrist with a beautiful bracelet from the Willamy Collection

Willamy Bracelet

  This weekend I finally made the decision to go through the bedroom closet and rid it of stuff I no longer need or use. My car is stuffed with thing to donate to a local charity. They sell the items and all the profits goes towards their charity. While I was cleaning out my closet I found a lot of my jewelry that was lost among the mess. I … [More...]

Add color and whimsy to your home with Whim™ by Martha Stewart

Whim

  My mom always told me that I like to march to the beat of my own drums. I have never been one to follow the "norm." I choose to be different and unique. I've always been that way. My home reflects my eclectic tastes. I have mismatched furniture, my desk is covered with toys (my toys - not toys belonging to kids) and I have rat and mice wall … [More...]

Laptops and desktops at affordable prices – plus a $100 gift code giveaway (ends 4/12/15)

HP

  It never ceases to amazed me just how much we rely on technology these days. Growing up the idea of a handheld device you could watch movies on, or make phone calls wirelessly from on top of a mountain were not even a thought. The big thing when I was a teen was cable and Sony Walkman portable players. I also cannot believe how far computers … [More...]

Movie Review: Supremacy

Supremacy

  Available today on Blu-ray and DVD is the thriller Supremacy. Supremacy stars Danny Glover (Lethal Weapon), Joe Anderson (Hercules) and Dawn Olivieri (American Hustle). To be honest I was a bit "on the fence" about this title. I do enjoy a good action/thriller film, but this film touches upon things that are so prevalent in the news these … [More...]

Dear Self… What words of advice would you give yourself?

Free

  Recently we had a family member pass away. He was a wonderful man - so full of life. My husband posted on his own Facebook page how "hugs were not an option" referencing our relative who passed away. Its true. It didn't matter who you were - friend or relative - our deceased loved one always hugged everyone. Even the first time I met him he … [More...]

Dear Magazine Publishers…

Magazines

  I love to read. Sadly I don't always have the time to pick up a book and read it from cover to cover. There are days I'm lucky if I can read a few pages let alone a chapter or two. That is why I enjoy reading magazines. I am able to read articles in a matter of minutes, plus I find a lot of great recipes and ideas for around the home. I … [More...]

Thankfully he sent me a link. Of course I just had to check it out. The link took me to the Cision website. Cision helps companies, brands and public … [More...]
