Busy Family Calendar

Contains affiliate link

Look, I know the common is conception seems to be that stay-at-home, work-from-home, or bloggers in general just sit around the house all day. That couldn't be farther from the truth. We are just as busy if not more than those working outside the home. Do you have any idea how many times I have forgotten a doctor's appointment or even open house at my daughter's school? Way too many times to count. Mom's and dad's are busy. Any person who takes care of children is busy. That's just the way of things. So we need some way to organize all those appointments without trying to keep them all sorted in our heads that are already cluttered.

Coola Suncare Products

Summer may be coming to an end soon, but that doesn't mean you should put away the suncare products! As a matter of fact, maybe it's a great time to upgrade your suncare with Coola Suncare. 

Stop Nausea In It's Tracks With Sea-Band!

I am no stranger to pregnancy or travel nausea, and while I have no experience with it myself, have watched my dear mother suffer through chemo nausea when she battled breast cancer two years ago. I am literally always looking for some way to curb nausea. I've tried it all. While I know of a few things that actually work, they really aren't the perfect solution for every situation. Sea-Band, however, has made it much easier to calm nausea no matter where you are.

Get A Healthy Glow Year Round

I'm one of those people who don't tan. Both because it takes a lot for my skin to actually tan, and because I want to avoid sun damaged skin as much as possible. Looking much older than I am due to sun exposure isn't on my bucket list. Neither is skin cancer. So I tend to stay in the shade when I'm outdoors, and still put sunscreen on. I am also super pale, and still want some way to get a little bit of color to my skin without all the damage and unhealthy effects the sun brings. There's sunless tanner and sprays, but lets face it, you still look orange with those and I'm not trying to be one of Willy Wonka's Oompa Loompas. So what's the solution?

Creative Lettering Sketchbook

I love to doodle and I remember when I was younger I would doodle fancy lettering in my notes to friends or on my notebooks and folders. I still sometimes get fancy with my lettering when I make out my Christmas cards each year. I have to say, I'm not quite as good as I use to be, probably because I don't practice my lettering as often as I use to. The Draw, Color, & Sticker Creative Lettering Sketchbook is serious fun and a great way to practice lettering designs and techniques.

Throwing A Ghostbusters Birthday Party

My son has been absolutely obsessed with Ghostbusters for two years now. Ever since he saw his first episode of Extreme Ghostbusters on Hulu. His birthday theme last year was Blaze and the Monster Machines already and it was too late to change the theme, so my husband and I secretly hoped that he still liked Ghostbusters the following year so we could do that as his birthday theme. My children are mini nerds and are certainly mini versions of my husband and I. It runs pretty deep in the family, actually. My brother-in-law has a Ghostbusters costume he wears regularly complete with an awesome proton pack, and recently he even purchased a car to turn into the Ecto-1.
