All opinions are mine alone. #MyBioreFizz #CollectiveBias Some days I look out our big windows and wish we had more seasons in SoCal.  I get a tinge of jealousy as my friends back east post photos of snow flurries and big snowmen.  As they say - the grass is always greener (or buried under 3 feet of snow) on the other side.  Winter is very shortlived in SoCal.  It starts later than most states and we can start wearing our flip flops again before you can say Do You Wanna Build A Snowman.  Aubrey … [Read more...]

Shopping At The Outlets

Happy New Gear - PUMA Outlets

This post is sponsored by PUMA Outlets & Lunchbox. All stories & opinion are provided by yours truly. Have you experienced a jam-packed day of shopping at your local Outlet Mall?  Where you find a parking spot, leave the car all day, and walk till you drop?  I do.  Your arms are like jello carrying around the bags of deals you scored for family & friends (and, let's be honest, you.)  Every time you go to the car to drop off a load you wave off the passing cars to let them know I'm not leaving yet. I never checked online ahead of time to see what stores were having what types of … [Read more...]

I received a gift certificate to dine and share my experience with the new seasonal menu options at Bonefish Grill in Valencia.  Opinions are mine (and my friend's, since she came with!) Shrimp Ceviche Chilled bay scallops, marinated shrimp, fish, fresh pineapple, coconut, cilantro and guacamole, seasoned crisps for dipping. Since I'm practically ready to give birth at almost any minute of any day, I'm trying to get all the things I've been meaning to do, done.   One of the items on the agenda was going out with my friend Maria to do my post-baby-booze-shopping trip to stock up on some … [Read more...]

All opinions are mine alone. #LorealBeauty #CollectiveBias  This post might contain affiliate links   There's a realization coming soon.  The realization that my already choppy sleep will be interrupted even more with the birth of our third baby in November. We're preparing for baby now, and last week we bunked Aubrey and Luke together in her room to leave Luke's old room for the baby.  The transition has gone better than I was worried about except for one thing. When one wakes up crying in the … [Read more...]

I Survived…And Got A New Do To Celebrate

Jon recently was gone for 2 weeks in Germany.  I was basically radio silent on social media about it all because, safety.  He headed out the first week in August and we both knew it would be difficult but holy cow, at times I couldn't just even. We had the CloudPets Kitty to help send messages to the kids.  Although we learned quickly Aubrey did not handle the bedtime messages well. So we switched to daytime only with it, and that helped a lot.  My mom said Luke would press the paw often while I was at work and Aubrey was at school. Aubrey seemed to handle things well.  But Luke. Luke was … [Read more...]

The Magic of BB Creams

BB Creams from CVS

I purchased some different BB Creams from CVS and put them all to the test. The first one I tried was instant love at first sight.  But, I kept going and tried 3 more  brands.  Recapping why I liked or didn't like them in today's YouTube video!   The brands I tried were by Rimmel, Physicians Formula, Maybelline, and Revlon.  All have SPF, all are tinted.  One clear winner! … [Read more...]
