The title says it all, while I love Sephora and spoiling myself once in awhile there are times where money can be better spent or I just don’t have the time to drive the extra way. CVS is nearby, has a ton of options and is cheap! These are my favorite things from the drugstore.
I will admit that I am a huge fan of HBO’s Game of Thrones. The story lines, the action, it sucks me in. My hubby is also a huge fan, it’s one of the few things he watches regularly besides SportsCenter or the NFL network. Whenever I read a story recapping or discussing the last episode some poster always decides to throw out “Read the books so you can find out what happens.”
This is a really easy version of Baked Ziti that can be on the table in less than an hour. I really like making this because the leftovers last awhile. This is a great meal for during the week when you know making lunch or dinner the next few days will be tough. [Read more…]
I really love these for a side dish or even as the main course. They are quick and easy, not to mention insanely delicious! The best part is they are very kid friendly. My son loves them! I boil and cut them up for him and I leave them plain. When I make them for myself if I’m alone I bake them in the oven so they get nice and crisp then I serve with a little bit of butter, some marinara sauce and a sprinkling of parmesan cheese. Amazing!
These come in many different options now so you really can find any that work for your taste. They have american cheese along with cheddar and jalapeno. They also have a sweet potato version for those that don’t like white potatoes. The options are endless so enjoy!!
I have to share this amazing eyeliner! Maybelline Master Precise by Eyestudio. It’s easy to apply like a pencil but has the look and feel of liquid. A cat-eye is amazingly easy with this. I do my top line with this and line my lower eye with a waterproof liner (right now I’m using a liner from Mally). It only takes me minutes to do my eyeliner thanks to this product! Highly recommended! [Read more…]
So I had the chance to watch This is 40 over the weekend and going in I was expecting good things. I was a fan of Knocked Up when it first came out and I liked a lot watching it again when I was pregnant.
This is one of my husbands favorite recipes! I usually get a request for them at least once a week and the boys at work get jealous when they see these in the lunchbox! Delicious, easy and less messy that regular tacos, every time I show up at a party with these they are gone almost immediately and I always get someone asking for the recipe. You will need two cupcake pans for this. [Read more…]
When I was growing up, the Disney Princesses of the early ’90’s were in full force. Ariel, Belle and Jasmine were everywhere and I loved them. They wanted to explore the world and read books and choose her own husband. Getting older I starting watching “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” and felt all sorts of ‘I am woman, hear me roar’. This recent controversy with Disney and their beautification of Merida from “Brave” made me think about the role models that are out there for young girls. For every Merida or Buffy, there is a Kardashian or a Bella Swan. Either you are a vain airhead or you are so dependent on a man that you make yourself sick and are willing to kill yourself when he breaks up with you. The Twilight obsession really bothered me when I saw how girls would swoon over this Edward/Bella love affair and I’m sitting there internally screaming “He’s abusing her emotionally!” [Read more…]
Lets be honest with ourselves. Sometimes as parents, we put ourselves on the side which hurts our looks. We’ve all had those moments where we just throw our hair up into a bun and run out the door because we don’t have the time or energy to dry our hair. But I own a product that changes that, my Wet 2 Straight hair straightener! I LOVE this straightener! I am a mom who showers and does her hair before bed, it saves me a good 45 min-1 hour every morning. I dry my hair and then do a quick run through in the morning. [Read more…]
New nail polish color that is very summer! This is on my toes almost year round just because it’s always nice to see bright toes! It’s O.P.I-That’s Hot Pink! [Read more…]
