One of the most common things I heard after we paid off our mortgage was about how rich we now were. I realized that people didn't really get it. Now, maybe it isn't like this for everyone, but the few people I know that paid off their mortgage were all in the same boat... Recovery.… Continue reading Budget Wars | August 2018
A few weeks ago, Influenster sent me some free swag. That's right, they sent me a bag of chips to try. Lays Poppables. I would love to say that I tried them and loved them, but for real, my kids took the whole bag and ate them ALL before I had a moment to try… Continue reading Lays Poppables | I Let My Kids Review
A few years ago, a friend of mine tried selling me on using essential oils. I wanted nothing to do with it because I figured it was just another money-making gimmick that would be a waste of money (and we know how much I hate wasting money). Needless to say, I moved on and forgot… Continue reading Essential Oils

Ok, there's a chance I'm… Continue reading New Favourite Foundation?
If there's one thing that gets under my skin, it's a bad face cream. No? Ok, I'll start that over. There's nothing worse than needing a drink of water on a hot day and just not being able to get to one. It leaves you parched, dry and feeling a bit like the Sahara. On… Continue reading Water Creams|Hot or Not?
I LOVE shopping. I shop all the time. Constantly. Ever since the idea of online shopping became a thing for me, I now have the luxury of shopping at home, in my pjs, every day. If only there was some sort of fund that allowed me to follow through and make all these purchases a… Continue reading Fashion Haul|July 2018
I normally want to wait for these types of posts until the beginning of the month and then I can share all of my favourites. However. July has been one of those months that I'm scraping the bottom of the barrel on a few makeup staples. So, I thought writing this out might help me… Continue reading July Empties
Life doesn't always go the way we think it should. Sometimes it even feels like the twilight zone. Handling the hiccups and the poop that tries to bury you can be downright overwhelming at times. I am so grateful for my faith in God because I know He is faithful and will see me through… Continue reading How Do You Handle Tough Times?
