Quench Your Thirst with Passion Star Punch

Recently. Captain Morgan invited me to participate in a recipe challenge. They sent us a box of stuff, and some of their new rums. The challenge was to make a punch using one of their new flavors of rum – Grapefruit, Pineapple, or Coconut. We ran through several ideas – all of which were really good, and will make amazing cocktails, before remembering the punch aspect.

See…punch is meant to be made in a big ol’ batch, and doled out to people. When we scrapped everything we were thinking, and came back to basics, we hit upon Passion Star punch.

Mix and Match Swimwear from Target

Memorial Day is basically known as the unofficial start of summer. School’s out for most people, and the weather is warm. Usually. It seems like this year, we’re having a bit of a cold snap in the Midwest, but that won’t stop our weekend.

How to Make Your Perfume for Summer + Recipe

There was a time when I loved nothing more than making everyone I knew a new scent. My mom would come home from work, and she’d have a whole new perfume wardrobe. Some she liked, some she didn’t care for so much. She’d never let me know that, of course. But all of the fragrances were made from quality ingredients.

Fast forward about 15 years. Essential oils are in the mainstream consciousness again, and here I am. Making fragrances for myself and a few lucky people. I’m sharing one of my recipes with you. This is one I call Summer Breeze. Why? Mainly because it needed a name. That’s how I roll.

No Need to Suffer with LBL

There are millions of people in the US alone that suffer from LBL. Are you one of them? Do you even know what lbl stands for? I have to admit, the first time I saw lbl, I was like “WTH are they talking about?!?” Once I figured it out, though, I knew. I just knew.

poise-liner-sample-kit

LBL, or light bladder leakage affects more of us than you know. Like when you’re coughing or a sudden sneeze catches you off-guard. Or how about that moment when you’re enjoying a great laugh with your friends and “oh! Gotta go!” happens. Yeah…not so fun then, is it?

9 Great Espadrilles for your Summer Wardrobe

When I was a kid, my grandmother used to wear espadrilles when she mopped the tile. I always thought that was so strange, but I guess her reasoning was that the twine made her steadier. I don’t know, seems like a weird reason to me. Anyway, her espadrilles were these great platform shoes from the late 1970s or early 1980s that she got on a trip to Mexico. And I thought they were awesome.

espadrille-style-under-75

What’s old is new again, and vintage retro has been having a heyday for a minute now. Espadrilles seemed to have been kind of overlooked in this renaissance, though. Never fear. Espadrilles are back in a big way, baby. Each of these pairs is under $75, with most under $50.

1. H&M Slip On Espadrilles ($25) 2. Jessica Simpson Leather Espadrilles ($63) 3. Charlotte Russe Laser Cut Espadrilles ($39) 4. Madden Girl Maui Espadrille ($60) 5.

10 Great Summer Outfits for Girls under $10 each!

I don’t usually do a lot of kid related posts, as it’s just not my forte. You see, I just don’t have many children in my life. I have no nieces or nephews. I don’t have children of my own, either. All I have is my friends and co-workers kids.

Recently, though, a co-worker mentioned that they were trying to find some great clothes for their kids. After asking a few questions, and assessing some styles, I knew we could handle this.

personalized-jewelry-from-onecklace-wm

Way back when, I always wanted a personalized necklace. This was when Sex and the City was on, and Carrie had her name necklace, and I thought that was the greatest thing. Of course, having a name like Greta means that you don’t often find personalized items readily available. I looked into having one made, and it was prohibitively expensive.

Fast forward (unintelligible) years and here we are. Name necklaces, and other types of customized jewelry items, are now readily available for everyone. oNecklace has all types of customized necklaces that you can order, including name necklaces.
