Nuby iMonster Toddler Feeding Set Review

I know we probably did the whole feeding solids things badly with Baby E. He was breastfed until 15.5 months and he didn't start on solids until he was more than 5 months old. He didn't start on table food until he was like 9 or 10 months old.  So while some of the other moms in my group were feeding their kids roast and potatoes, I was still feeding mine Gerber meals.  I am happy to say that while he initially resisted solids, he eats everything now. He is getting really good with serving himself as well even with the slippery foods like … [Read more...]

Bed Bugs are on the Rise – Handy Infographic from Moxie Pest Control

Oh my goodness! When I was kid, I thought bed bugs were fake like the good night, sweet dreams, don't let the bed bugs bite thing. However, when I got older we went on vacation and the house we usually rented for a week or so during the summer was unavailable because of bed bugs. We were shocked and I feel really bad for the people who owned that house because apparently they were really really bad. They are on the rise! Did you know that they can get in your furniture as well? I had no idea! I assumed they would only be in the bed given their name. … [Read more...]

Wrapping Up My 3 Months with Viviscal

My three months with Viviscal has been over for a little while now and I am happy to report that my hair is doing fabulously! You might remember that I started Viviscal in March because after having Baby E my hair had been falling out in clumps and generally looked awful.  Within a week of taking two pills a day, my hair was already getting shinier and felt healthier.  I could tell that my hair was growing because I was getting more tangles when trying to brush. The weird thing about my hair is that it never, ever tangles when its short but the … [Read more...]

ShopYourWay Rewards Program

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of ShopYourWay Program for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine. I love to shop. I don't love to aimlessly shop though. I like to know what I need, what I am looking, or at least have a vague idea why I am in the store in the first place. I usually do a pep talk with myself and say, I am only going to get this and this and this and nothing else. However, I usually end up seeing stuff on clearance or sale and buying it.  I still think I am a good, frugal shopper though. That's why I think using a … [Read more...]
