Hair Care – How To Beat The Winter Doldrums!

#StrongIsBeautiful Pantene Pro-V Repair & Protect

New York City Winters are no joke.  Thankfully, this one has been pretty mild so far.  I know it is coming though.  Things are going smoothly and then of a sudden it’s below zero, there are 20 inches of snow on the ground, I can’t find one my gloves, I realize I don’t own a shovel and we have run out of milk.  At the end of the day, I always survive though…even if it means paying neighborhood kids to dig out this shovel-less girl’s car.   Continue reading

Holiday Beauty with Babbleboxx!

#BabbleBoxx Beauty

How fun is December?  Shopping and decorating and parties?  Yes, please!  The holidays and the parties that come with them are in full swing right now and I love it!  I have my best friend’s Christmas party tomorrow night.  I was just deliberating on a few dresses this morning but I am still torn on exactly what I am going to wear.  I am, however, all set on the beauty front thanks to my latest Babbleboxx!  It came last week and I am obsessed with the products.  I get to do a lot of cool things for A Little Glitter but my favorite is when I get to review new beauty items!   Continue reading

We finally got to put up our tree this past weekend!  I have been itching to get it set up since Thanksgiving but we get a real one and I don’t like to get it too early for fear of it drying out.  This was our second year with cats.  Last year was our first but we only had Jeter.  Continue reading

2016 Holiday Gift Guide For The Tween/Tween!

2016 Holiday Gift Guide For The Tween/Teen

I think that after Men, Tweens/Teens are the most difficult groups of people to shop for.  They are extremely particular and have honed their style and taste.  You can give a little kid anything from Fisher Price and chances are you will get a smile from them.  You give a tween the wrong type of present and it will sit on a shelf until the end of time.

naturemadeatwalmart-vitaminsI think that the time between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day is the most stressful time of year for me.  It’s cold out (yuck), money is tight from all the holiday shopping, I never see any Sunshine (when I leave for work it’s dark and when I get home it’s already dark) and there is so much to do.  It is easy to feel overwhelmed and stressed out (and I usually do).  This year I am trying a few different techniques to try to keep myself healthy and happy.   Continue reading
