Saving On Amazon – My #1 Tip

I sometimes get compensated for working with brands through Amazon gift cards. As a result, I do a lot of shopping on Amazon. I’ve been an Amazon Prime member since around 2011 I believe. The convenience of having items delivered to my home in 2-3 days from the time of order is just so convenient.

I like feeling like I’m saving money though, and it can be tough to save money on Amazon as they rarely offer coupons. When they … Read the rest

YouTube Videos That Help You Understand Others

I’ve always been drawn to memoirs. I find myself better able to understand others when I can try to see things from their point of view. Reading a general text book about history has never been as impactful as reading an individual account of someone who survived that period of history. I guess it’s just how my mind works.

If you’re like me and enjoy learning about other people and their struggles and successes through first-hand accounts, YouTube can be … Read the rest

Amazon Prime Dog Treat Sample Box Review

I like how Amazon has been offering sample boxes to Prime members. You have to pay for the box upfront, but you get a credit on your account for the price of the box. I purchased a dog food and treats sample box in the past, and this new one was simply called dog treat sample box, though it included some food as well. The box costs $11.99 and in return you’ll get a $11.99 credit to spend on pet … Read the rest

If You Like Johnny Cash You Will Like

I grew up on country music. As an adolescent I steered towards rock and emo. Then a few years ago I found myself on a new path. It started with a desire to listen to some old country songs. I started off on Johnny Cash and Kris Kristofferson, and discovered John Prine, Kasey Musgraves, Jason Isbell and others. Over the months and years I’ve continued to evolve from there. So, I’m not saying this music is all similar (it’s not) … Read the rest

Dealing With Loud Neighbors In An Apartment

When you move into a new apartment or house and start hearing loud noises, or dealing with other annoying behaviors from your neighbors it’s easy to get upset, quickly. It’s happened to me before. Over the years though I’ve learned that most people will work with you, if you approach the problem in a mature way.

Most recently, my neighbor in a duplex was playing music extremely loudly during the afternoons, for about two hours. It was the middle of … Read the rest

Dry Damaged Frizzy Hair Product Results

There are affiliate links in this post.

About 15 months ago my hair seemed to lose it’s shine. I always had shiny, strong hair prior to that. I was 24 at the time. A few months after I lost the shine, I started noticing “fly aways” or broken pieces of hair that would stick up on top of my head. This has continued since then. I first noticed the change a few months after starting hormonal birth control, but my … Read the rest

The Comfortable Underwire Bra That I Love

There are affiliate links in this post.

I know that most women struggle with finding a comfortable bra. Many of my friends have told me that they  buy the same style over and over once they find one that works. That is true for me too! Yet, as women we rarely share our bra secrets with others so they can find the good ones, too.

August Life Update

It’s been about six months since my last general life update so I thought it was time!

This weekend is my sisters wedding. I am a bridesmaid and Ryan is playing videographer. I am excited and hoping to get through it without crying too much.

I bought some very light pink or nude colored nail polish, some white nail polish and nail stickers to do a french manicure and pedicure for the wedding. My little sister was here a couple … Read the rest
