Today’s blog post is inspired by the Daily Prompt from August 21st about starting a new semester of classes. I felt that posting this today was more appropriate than last week because today marks the beginning of the end of my college career; I am officially starting the last year of my Masters of Social Work program at the University of Kansas and I couldn’t be more proud of myself.

If there is one thing I enjoy about reviewing products, it is when I get to review products made by people like me – bloggers, stay at home mothers, DIYers. There is just something very unique and intriguing about people that put in so much time and effort to make a wonderful product to share with the rest of the world; this is how I felt when I recently received some products from an Etsy shop to review.

Let’s talk about bums, baby. Let’s talk about you and me. Let’s talk about all the good things and the bad things that may be, let’s talk about BUMS!
In all seriousness, I am super excited to announce that I have been chosen (along with 49 other bloggers!) to be a Cottonelle Brand Ambassador! [CONTINUE READING...]
I wouldn’t go so far to call it depression because I know what depression feels like and that isn’t how I feel, but rather I’ve been feeling a bit down lately. I think it is a combination of being bored (because I was laid off at the end of June) and not having the means to really go out and do something fun or having the motivation to do anything!

As a college student, I know all to well how expensive it is to attend school. After paying thousands of dollars in tuition and fees (some fees for things you’ll never use on campus!), you’d think that they (campus, bookstores etc) would give students a break when it comes to their text book costs…YEAH RIGHT! College textbooks are outrageously expensive and an area of complaint for most students because who wants to spend $600+ on books they will only use for a semester. Luckily, some people have gotten smart over the years and companies have opened up the world of textbook rentals which not only simplifies the process of buying your textbooks but it cuts costs in a major way.

Aches and pains are not something that I am accustomed to or have on a regular basis, but every now and again I’ll get aches in my neck an shoulders especially when I’ve been working at the computer for too long. Most of the time, I just try to let the aches and pains wear off without doing anything or taking any medication. Other times, I will take a hot bath to soothe the pain and hope that it goes away or take a medication if the pain is that bad. Recently though, I had the chance to try out a great product that helps soothe the aches and pain in the neck and shoulders without taking any medication and without having to get in the water.

When I was younger, I use to collect Holiday Barbies. You know the ones that are released every Christmas in the fancy boxes that you aren’t supposed to open; well half of mine are open because I didn’t know any better when I was five years old and my parents never told me not too! The Holiday Barbie was something I looked forward to every Christmas as I got older because my grandmother always gave me that years Barbie as a gift. I still have those Barbies somewhere, most likely in the attic at my grandmother’s home, even though I stopped collecting them long ago. [CONTINUE READING...]
