Sparkling Cranberry Mojito Mocktail #NewWayToSparkle.

While I may not be a big drinker…I am a huge celebrator!  Taylor and I feel like the more sparkly and festive we can make things, the better.  Since we are hosting Thanksgiving this year for the first time in our apartment, we decided to create a fun Sparkling Cranberry Mojito Mocktail to serve to our family and friends.  This way everyone can join in on the fun regardless of their age or whether they drink alcohol.  Continue reading

DIY Office Survival Kit #Scotchclothingessentials

During the weekdays, in my non-blog life, I work with mostly men and tend to be the Mama Bear of my office. If anyone needs a bandage or a safety pin they come see me. What can I say? I like to be prepared and they know I will probably have that stuff. Last week while organizing my desk I went through my drawers and consolidated my office supplies for work into an Office Survival Kit. I noticed a few things that I had run out of and I picked them up (along with a super cute chalkboard basket) over the weekend at my local Walmart. While I was assembling my kit I realized that this would also make a very cute gift for a friend starting a new job, a college graduate or even a co-worker. My friend was telling me about another great gift for her business, which would be a great deal on her business energy. She is so tired of spending more then she has too on energy for her business so she turned to websites such as Usave. They helped her save a huge amount of money through a new fantastic quote.

Adventures In Frugality

Adventures In Frugality

For all (or most) of the years of my adult life I was in a relationship with my Husband and we shared finances.  In some ways that was a great thing – two salaries!  Woo Hoo!  In other ways it was a struggle.  We were two people with different financial goals and when one of us would go over budget it would totally impact the other.  When we separated I was scared to be on my own financially.   Continue reading

#40Pounds Challenge Emergen-C DIY Glitter Tumbler

September is one of my favorite months.  The weather cools down and the mellow, lazy days at the beach are replaced by focus on a new school year and the beginning of Fall.  This September was a little bittersweet for me.  My baby went off to Middle School!  Her supplies bummed me out a little.  No more crayons or finger paints.  Instead, she needs a scientific calculator!  The school also provides all the kids with iPads and a lot of their work is done electronically.  Everything feels so mature.  She didn’t even want a lunch box!  Instead, she has opted to buy hot lunch.
