You’re probably wondering what a NON-Christmas event post is doing here today, but I just had to share with you where I’ll be headed off to on Thursday!! Myself and seven other bloggers will be meeting up at the adoba hotel Dearborn/Detroit where we will stay through Saturday touring local hotspots and having a great time!!
Amongst other things, we will be touring adoba, dining at the well-known Giulio & Sons restaurant, and learning about what makes this eco-friendly and architecturally pleasing hotel so special. We will also be visiting The Henry Ford and having some fun at the Fairlane Town Center.
While I always miss my family when I travel without them, I am really looking forward to this trip!! I love getting to visit new places and love even more getting to meet new blogger friends!! Be on the lookout for my full recap of this event a few weeks from now and plan on seeing me posting, tweeting, and instagram-ing up a storm while I’m there!! I’ll be using #EcoTravelwithadoba, so if you see or read something you like, be sure to say hi and virtually join in on my fun!!
You may remember that back in August, I posted a review and giveaway on Younique’s 3-D Fiber Lashes!! I loved them back then and I love them even more now!! Today, though, I wanted to introduce you to another product that I think sometimes gets overlooked. Lip Liner. Continue reading
When I say Avon, what do you think of first?? I have to admit that when I was younger, I thought of Avon as a company that provided mainly older women with perfumed powders, lotions, and make-up. Whether I was right or wrong back then, that is certainly NOT the case now! Continue reading
Although most kids are quick to provide a list of things that they’d like for Christmas, it’s still hard to shop for them for some reason, right?!?! It’s that battle between what they want, what they need, what they have WAY TOO MUCH OF, what you know they will have forgotten about before the end of the day on Christmas, and what they didn’t even know they wanted that will bring a big smile to their face!!! For me, I LOVE to give that last gift! That gift that took some mothers intuition and creative planning to get under the tree, but that I know will make my little girl glow, not only when she opens it up, but each time she wears it!! Enter, Sugar N Spice Pendants!!! Continue reading
We have tried to live as close as possible to a chemical free life in my home, but it’s hard sometimes. Finding a product that is safe for my family and also effective in keeping my home clean has never been easy, but I was relatively happy with what I had been using. Until I found Norwex, that is!!

One of my favorite things to do around the holidays is to bake, and I happen to believe that a recipe is only ever as good as the quality of it’s ingredients!! I have been making my own vanilla extract for years now and WOW, what a difference! It has such a richer and more robust flavor than what you typically find in the store, and the best part is, you can customize it to your specific taste by choosing which type of bean to use.
