Learn about illuMask at #FightAcne Twitter Party

Disclosure: I am being compensated for sharing this information and participating in the Twitter chat. Opinions are my own. So who of us does not remember the dreaded acne of teenage years? I had very bad acne as a teenager and it was a constant battle. My son had acne as a teen as well, but thankfully not nearly like mine was. I tried all sorts of creams, lotions, ointments, … Continue Reading →

I Shaved My Legs For This and a Giveaway

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post for SheSpeaks/Gillette Venus. Opinions are my own. Honestly, I hate shaving my legs.

The History of the Bra [infographic]

The History of the Bra [infographic]

For this week’s infographic I stumbled upon this interesting one on the history of the bra. I have a love/hate relationship with bras – I find them necessary but I wish they were not. Maybe I was supposed to be around during the days of bra burning? The last entry on this infographic is so ridiculous – why on earth does that even need to be created? Crazy! What did … Continue Reading →

The Pros and Cons of Wearing High Heels [infographic]

Fashion Weeks are happening this time of year and high heels are a big part of all the runway shows. While I adore so many of the gorgeous shoes, I know I cannot wear the majority of them.

2014 Emmy Awards: In Memoriam, Who Knew, and Red Carpet Looks

2014 Emmy Awards: In Memoriam, Who Knew, and Red Carpet Looks

Last night I caught bits and pieces of the Emmy Awards show. It is the one award show I actually seem to like the show part because I recognize more of the people since they are TV. Watching the awards for movies and music I feel a little lost, but the TV people seem more like friends. These folks seem to know how to have fun and keep entertaining us … Continue Reading →

While Ross stores have been around for quite some time, they are newer to me. I just started learning about them, and shopping at Ross, recently.

I love that the women’s clothing department has some items in my size and they are different things you do not … Continue Reading →

Look Good Feel Better and Win!

Unfortunately, I know several people who have undergone cancer treatment. For women especially the impact on their appearance just adds to the stress they are under. We all know that it is what is on the inside that really matters, but we all also know that when we look better we feel better. When TheMotherhood asked me to participate in this campaign on behalf of Look Good Feel Better I … Continue Reading →
