As much as we hate to admit it, winter is right around the corner. In addition to dealing with snow filled roads, waking up early to scrape the ice off of the windshield, and having your sidewalk turned into a ice skating rink, winter also brings with it higher heating bills. Thankfully, there are a few steps that homeowners can take in order to reduce the impact that the winter cold has on their heating bills. Here are 7 ways to save money on heating this winter: [Continue reading…]

Are you ready for Thanksgiving to finally roll around? I know I am. I’m excited because this will be my first time hosting Thanksgiving. Beyond being excited I’m also extremely overwhelmed. If you’ve kept along with my blog you’d know my mom was diagnosed with triple negative breast cancer a few months ago. So, hint, hint, that’s why I’ll be cooking. I’ve never prepared a meal for more than four people so I’m glad that with Walmart best plans I can talk to my mom daily.
As you know, I’m a Walmart Family Mobile Ambassador and things are still going great. Me and my Samsung Galaxy S4 have become best friends. We’re inseparable :). I’m always on it, and keep it by my side in case my mom calls.
Besides talking to my mother to plan my Thanksgiving menu. I also call daily to check on her and make sure she’s doing alright. She gets chemotherapy treatments every week and afterwards she’s extremely tired for days. It’s funny, and sad because before my mother was diagnosed with cancer we talked a minimum of maybe two to three times a week. Now its multiple times a day.
I’ve always been curious about my mom and her life (she’s very private), and now she’s opened up and we talk like we’re best friends. I’m #Thankful4Savings I receive with the lowest priced unlimited plans at Walmart, because I’m able to talk to her any time of the day, as long as I want, text, send funny videos, and check out the pins she sends on Pinterest,without going over my minutes, or data plan.

This post is Sponsored by Ottilie and LuLu, all opinions and statements are 100% my own. BTW: My nieces absolutely love the products.
My nieces are best friends. They do everything together and always have each others back (for the most part).
While their personalities are different, (Michelle loves music, and singing, and Z.Z. loves nature, animals, and learning) one thing remains, whatever one does or gets, the other wants the same.
Michelle is now a tween and her sister Z.Z. is right behind her (in a year or two). Michelle’s body is starting to experience the changes that young girls go through when they become tweens, stinky armpits, little threads of hair under her arms, her first training bra, and a growth spurt. (Mind you, when we got Michelle a training bra Z.Z., of course, wanted one too, and I mean that child wears it around like she really has something to show under it.)
Michelle’s face is also starting to change, I’m no expert in skin care, but it seems like her skin has become more oily than usual. That’s why when I found out about Ottilie and Lulu Natural Skin Care For Tweens I got excited.
Now, I’m the type of aunt that loves to spoil my nieces. I like to take them out on the town, out to eat, allow them to try new things, and buy them all types of products (now, it’s all about the tinted lip gloss, and getting into my makeup box).
Ottilie and LuLu products were a new thing indeed, and when the girls opened the package, they jumped up and down with joy because they had something “new” to try. Ottilie and LuLu skin care products are designed with tweens in mind and are specially formulated just for tween skin. Tween skin is delicate, unique and in a state of constant change.
As adults we know that having a daily skin care regime is essential to keeping our skin clear and healthy. So why not allow our tweens to have the same option? [Continue reading…]

Lets face it. Winter is moving in full-force, and what better attire to lounge around the house, or throw on for a quick movie date, than a cute sweater? These cute pullover sweaters are under $30 each, and are sure to make a statement.
Lol, I’ve just really got into the whole wearing pullover sweaters thing, and I’m loving it. I can pair them with yoga pants, pajama pants, leggings, and jeans. I really like this collection because I hardly ever wear clothing with words on them, but these sweaters are too cute. [Continue reading…]

Our first “Money Saving Series” discussion is about “food waste”. I’ll admit that I waste a lot of food for no reason. I’ll let fresh fruits and veggies go bad before eating them. Sometimes I’ll let fresh meat sit in the refrigerator so long (in hopes of cooking it) that it goes bad and I […][Continue reading...]
