Give A Child A Shot@Life Without It Costing A Penny #GiveaShot #shop #cbias

I remember the first time my daughter had to get an immunization shot at the doctor's office.  It was traumatic for both of us.  I wish I had known about Walgreens back then.  Walgreens is a familiar place for her, we shop there all the time.  In fact, she loves going there - the combination of makeup (when you first walk in!), hair accessories, band-aids and toys creates her dream store. I went to Walgreens today to see what fun items  I … [Read more...]

I had so much fun creating this post.  I love makeovers, don't you?  The seasons are changing and Fall is the perfect time to update your bedroom with a new look.  Are you ready for my "before" and "after"?  I didn't hate my "before".  It wasn't awful, but it wasn't good either.  It was zzzzzzzzz, boring.  Z's are good in the bedroom but it should be because you are ready to sleep, not because your decor is boring!  Okay, here it is, my … [Read more...]

Try a New Anti-Perspirant/Deodorant This Summer – Odor Control and Moisturizer! #Sponsored #MC

It is finally summer! And even though in the cold, cold days of winter I said, "I'll never complain about being hot." Guess what? Why did it go from very, very cold to very, very hot?

The warm weather has had me … [Read more...]
