Self Care & Coming Up For Air

Self care — it’s one of the last things on my mind. In fact, I’m struggling to even think of what my needs might be. The hustle of unemployment, being a mom and wife, the holidays, and all the noise from the media…well, let’s just say life has taken my quiet time to an all time low.

A list of ideas for self care.

This last week, I’ve especially felt like I was drowning. Every time I pick up my phone, there seems to be an email or phone call or request that cannot be ignored. At night it’s mommy, I need this. Mommy, watch me dance. Mommy, watch Moana for the 486th time with me. All I want to do is come up for air and breath.

Holiday Gift Guide — Cyber Monday Deals

I don’t know about you, but I’m not a big Black Friday fan. The crowds, the lines, the waiting. This gal’s got no time for that. But Cyber Monday, well, that’s a whole nuther ball game. However, to be honest, I kinda shop Monday for myself. The biggest discounts at my favorite online stores all happening on the same day. I can’t not help but make it partially about me. So what is it that I’m eyeballing? Well that’s what I’m here for. I’m sharing all the deals and steals.

#ReinventGiving with HP

This post is sponsored by HP.

Between the move and the basement flood last year, there was an act of kindness I missed. It slipped through the cracks and because of that, I’m going to try and make it bigger and better this time around. Every year my family adopts a family for the holidays. It’s something that I normally don’t talk about, but when HP asked me if I’d like to participate in their #ReinventGiving campaign, I knew this was a perfect opportunity for my bigger and better.

Warm and Cozy — Roundup For Your Home

You know that old weather saying, “in like a lion, out like a lamb”? That’s pretty much every Fall here in Chicago. There is no easing into the cold weather. One day it’s 95° and the next, bam, it’s 21° and snowing. Which is presently what’s happening outside my window. But there’s something about that first snowfall. It’s magical. I curl up under a warm, cozy blanket and sip my wine slow.
