Must Have Purse Essentials For Every Emergency

When my kids were young and I had a diaper bag to carry around, it was easy to bring everything I could possibly need along with me at all times.  Must have purse essentials included things like snacks, toys, wipes, and just about everything but the kitchen sink.  Now that my kids are older, I have had to narrow down my definition of must have purse essentials to only what fits into an average sized handbag. And since I hate huge purses, my handbag tends to be small!  It isn't always easy to narrow down what goes in your purse.  I like to be … [Read more...]

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Coastal.com for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.Up until a couple of years ago I had absolutely perfect vision.  Then I hit 40 and everything started falling apart on me, including my eyes.  I found myself squinting, holding things farther away or closer to my face, and asking my kids to read things to me. Yup, getting old is no fun!  So, I headed to the eye doctor for an exam.  After she gave me a prescription for some eyeglasses I started looking at the selection and the prices … [Read more...]

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of No nonsense for SocialSpark.

Jewelry Gifts and Great Deals at Giando Massi

I am a fairly practical sort of girl but I still want to look good and feel great when I am out and about.  I try to find clothing, accessories and jewelry that are high quality and versatile.  That way, they last a long time and can be mixed and matched with a number of different outfits.  A universal little black dress and delicate gold chain can be worn a number of different places.  And a pair of dressy jeans, boots and chunky bracelet look just as good at the grocery store as they do at the pub on a Friday night.  Jewelry gifts are always … [Read more...]

Leather Handbags From Cuore & Pelle Offer Practical Elegance

A purse is one of those things that most girls just can't live without.  Where else would I keep that emergency flashlight, the bag of coupons, my kid's tooth that fell out at the mall or any of the other ten thousand weird things that I apparently need to carry around with me? Oh, I am supposed to keep my compact and makeup in there?  Yeah, not so much! I have too much other stuff in there to worry about girly things like eyeliner!  However, just because the contents of my purse are disgustingly practical, it doesn't mean I want to get stuck … [Read more...]

Madcapz stylish cap up for grabs in honor of #Breastcancerawareness!

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and since I have had several friends and family members diagnosed with this disease I am always thrilled to see companies doing their part to raise awareness.  I love seeing that little pink ribbon decorating my yogurt containers and am definitely more likely to purchase a product if they are donating a percentage of sales to research for a cure.  Having spent many years pre-kids working in cancer research I can tell you first hand that without financing, scientific research would not happen!  I was … [Read more...]
