I have made it no secret that I adore the idea of subscription boxes with monthly goodies. I have tried many of them, mostly related to healthy food products and eco friendly products. Each month it feels like you have been given a wonderful gift (even though you bought the boxes) and going through them and trying everything is super exciting and fun. It is also a great way to try products sample sizes affordably and see how you like them before you buy certain products at full price. I have … [Read more...]
After Black Friday and Cyber Monday Comes #GivingTuesday
I don't have any hard and fast policies about Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Over the years I have skipped one or both or decided to venture out and get a deal or two.

Lily’s Dark Chocolate
One of the perks of a paleo diet is that I don't try to limit my chocolate intake. I just make sure it is dark chocolate and I enjoy, enjoy, enjoy! I have tried so many different and wonderful dark chocolates since I started this new "diet" and I have been blown away by how much I actually like chocolate when I am eating the good stuff. Most of the chocolate marketed to us is crap...nutritionally and taste-wise. One that I tried many weeks ago and forgot to mention (oops!) is Lily's Dark … [Read more...]
Getting Dirty and Looking Pretty to Boot!
This lovely lady to the right is my 8 year old daughter. I have two boys and yet she is the one who would gladly spend every available moment outside playing with friends and getting dirty. She is such an outdoor girl and she needs boots that will not only keep her feet warm during our cold Ohio winters, she also wants some that are fashionable. Whether you are splashing in puddles or building a fort you need to look good right? Well, I hear that you do anyway. The good folks at Bogs offered … [Read more...]
