Girls’ Night Out

vincenzo's bingo night santa clarita

I did something new this month (well, last month since this is posting in August).  I have really been brainstorming methods to grow my Scentsy Business and came upon an opportunity for a local event at our pizza place - Vincenzo's.  They've been really great about working with our community for different types of fundraising events.  So last month I heard about a Bingo night where small businesses (primarily all in attendance were Direct Sales) could host a round of bingo and get to network and potentially obtain new customers. I don't know when I've ever played bingo. I have friends out … [Read more...]

Small Town Vibe in the Big City

santa clarita valley 4th of july

This post is sponsored by Bush's Beans, all opinions and story anecdotes belong to me :) Thank you for reading! Several years ago, we moved closer to the heart of town.  Our town is pretty large and gets larger every year with new developments popping up.  But each Fourth of July we celebrate Independence Day like a small town with folks congregating on shut-down streets, supporting our first responders, our kids, and small businesses. Our group of friends know they can come park at our house and walk down to cheer everyone one while wearing our red, white, and blue.  Lukey was surrounded … [Read more...]

Multi-tasking Mama Looking for Me Time

multi-tasking mama - netflix streaming binge worthy new shows

I'm a member of the Netflix #StreamTeam for 2017 and excited to share stories each month!  This post may contain affiliate links Being a mom to three littles, working full time, and running 2 side hustles (This blog, and Scentsy), I always had to cut down on a lot of tv time.  I'd find myself putting the kids to bed, sitting on one of our comfy recliners, and turn on the tv.  Before I knew it, it was approaching 10pm and I hadn't even made school lunches. It was on those nights that I started to feel overwhelmed with my to-do lists and I knew something had to give. Sadly, it was the tv. Of … [Read more...]

where to find snow in socal

This is a sponsored post with Gigasavvy to raise awareness for Winterfest OC.  Check below for a chance to win free tickets! All commentary is courtesy of me! Tis the season to deck the halls and get in the Holiday spirit.  Every day as we drive home from preschool, Aubrey & Luke are in awe of all the homes lit up with Christmas lights and the Christmas tree farm behind our house with the huge inflatable snowmen and nutcrackers.  Since the sun goes down so early (Thanks daylight savings!) they're able to see every decorated home in our neighborhood.  They're also at the age to ask me … [Read more...]

Deck The Halls – Getting Ready for Christmas

deck the halls - getting ready for christmas - the stationery studio

This is a sponsored post - Thank you The Stationery Studio for our Holiday cards! The conclusion of Thanksgiving (and, Ryan's birthday) brings on the decorating and preparing for Christmas in the Dell house!  All last week Aubrey kept asking when Christmas was coming - and when Happy (our elf) was coming.  It's amazing, that at only 5 years old, she already knows how things work around here.   Last year we made the decision to go with an artificial tree and that means we can decorate as soon as our belly's are full of ham (because we're not team turkey over here).  It takes a few days for … [Read more...]

Some Me Time – Pamper Sessions On The Go

Pamper Sessions On The Go - Sally Hansen and Priv

This post was sponsored by Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs as part of an Activation for Influence Central. I received complimentary products to facilitate my review. Every girl needs a good pamper session before heading out - whether it's with the girls, the husband, or, a bunch of strangers. Strangers?? Eh sort of.  Remember how I ventured down to San Diego and drove around in some cool cars?  Do you remember one of the photos at the end of the night? No? ok hold on. Earlier that day, before my 3+ hour drive to San Diego, I got a little pamper session in to get my makeup done and to turn … [Read more...]
