Write The Word Review

write the word review

This post contains affiliate links Just before New Years, while nursing Ryan, I was checking out social media and stumbled on a post from Lara Casey about a new product.  I clicked over and read her post about her new products called Write The Word Journals.  The journals were on pre-order and I went back and forth if I should buy them.  I decided to think about my goals for 2016. Stay In The Word While I was pregnant with Ryan, I started attending Bible study again.  I didn't realize how much I missed it.  But after he was born,  the logistics was just too much to coordinate and I knew I … [Read more...]

Finding My Blissful Moments

Betty Crocker Sweet Rewards Bars | #BlissfulMoments

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #BlissfulMoments#CollectiveBias When I started back at work when my maternity leave was up, I was trying to find a way to find blissful moments to get some quality "me time" in.  With three kids, it required a bit more thought as to where I'd find this magical time to just do something to fulfill me.  Thank God Ryan is a great sleeper so I didn't mind the idea I came up with - Be ready by 6:15 (or, 6:30 if I'm super tired) to have some quiet moments before it becomes complete chaos … [Read more...]

shop with me - walmart - sponsored posts

If you've been reading my blog for awhile, you know that I have had great opportunities come my way to work with brands for sponsored posts.  Sponsored posts come through in different forms of payment -an experience, a product, or monetary compensation.  I've worked with Carolyn (This Talk Ain't Cheap) on creating a training on how to step up your game and write better sponsored posts and what brands are looking for (if you're interested in more info, contact me!) For one of my recent sponsored posts, it was through a blogger network.  Part of the post involves creating a story (which I … [Read more...]

L’Oreal Lumi Cushion First Impression

Oh man, you know me and my makeup obsession. I have been loving my L'Oreal Lumi foundation and saw the Cushion at CVS - but had NO idea what on earth that meant.  But the packaging was so adorable.  Then, I saw the video from Long Story Short with Megan & Wendy and understood what the Cushion meant.  So, I went shopping. The L'Oreal Lumi Cushion - oh man. I'm so torn.  I love how easy it is to apply.  I just flip open the lid and use either my beauty blender or the foundation brush from Tarte.  But, it's SO THIN. I swear the coverage is more similar to a BB cream than a foundation. … [Read more...]

Come Shop With Me – Target January

I'm a wee bit behind sharing some of my lifestyle vlogs that I have featured on my YouTube channel (have you subscribed?).  You might recall I got a new camera for my birthday.  I used it for a bit but wasn't a huge fan of the slow auto-focus.  When on the go, I wanted to have something with a quick reaction since I'd be sharing products and might be doing close ups and then back to just talking.  That camera was NOT cutting it.  I did some more research and found the one that has turned out to be amazing!  The Canon PowerShot G7 X is all that and more. It's compact but does have a bit of … [Read more...]
