Let’s Give this Dress Idea a Try

I happened upon a rack at Ocean State Job Lot that held a bunch of cute dresses. Usually, as a woman with wide hips, it’s difficult for me to find a dress that suits my body type. I picked out two dresses, each I felt may end up looking odd on a girl with curves, but I actually adore this first dress I wore. Never mind my double chin, most of us who have given birth or not end up with one as we get older. I have learned to embrace this double chin even if I do hope it […]

Cleaning Your Room – Parent vs Child

The biggest battle of parenthood I see as a “choose your battles wisely” topic is cleaning your child’s bedroom.  So many parents complain about how messy their child’s room is, or complain about how they can’t get their child to clean their room. I see two types of parental mindsets with the topic of children’s bedroom cleaning; The parents who simply want their child’s room to be clutter free, organized and presentable. The parents who want their child’s bedroom cleaned and organized their way vs the child’s way. Both parents are perfectly right, who’s to say it’s going to ruin […]

What To Do On Spring Break – Day 1

Last week my kids were on Spring break, all week long. The start of our Spring break was actually begun on the Friday before the break even was here. I had a phone call from my sister and it seemed she could use some time out of her house, so I ventured over to pick up my sister and baby niece Livy. I just love how big Livy is getting, she is walking all over the place now and becoming quite the little character. I love watching her many facial expressions. I have spent a lot of time with my […]

Shopping for my Tween Daughter

The time has come, that time when your child no longer accepts and adores your clothing selections for her. Yes, I firmly believe it happens to all of us. We all have been at that stage where the clothing choices our parents made for us would make us cringe and argue the fact that we are now too old to have our Mommy or Daddy buy us clothing. I remember being that age and I was a nightmare, I am sure, now I get to relive that stage with my oldest, which is nearing middle school age and is ready […]

Shopping for Jeans That Fit your Style

After giving birth to three children, I have found that my body took on a shape of its own. No longer do I have this pre-baby body that can fit into any style of jeans and it’s frustrating at times. Up until about two years ago, I wasn’t too keen on shopping for anything except comfy clothing. It seems, even though I had given birth, I wanted to stick with maternity style clothing. It was comfortable. It meant I didn’t have to try on clothing and look in mirrors. It was a safe choice. The problem is; I love jeans. […]

Would Would Brandy Do if she Had a No Limits Shoe Shopping Spree

Just the other day I was thinking about how I haven’t purchased myself clothing in forever. Occasionally I do receive a gift card to get some clothes and then I spend that on myself, usually shoes. This got me thinking, what would I do if I had a no-limit shopping spree for my favorite wardrobe item … shoes?! First off, why do I love shoes? Because they always fit just right no matter what. I can get tall shoes to be a tad bit taller and I can get flats that allow me to stay at my 5’6″ level. It’s […]

Five Ways to Use Your Child’s Halloween Costume Year Round

I have three kids, they like to play dress up on occasion. Mind you, two of my three children are boys, this means dress up to them is more about some doctor, fire man or military dress up type scenario whereas my daughter would prefer a princess or witch type costume.

Playing dress up with last years Halloween costumes really make for a fun, creative, imaginary play date and that is just what […]

Choosing the Right Bra For Your Age

We are all aware that as we get older, some clothes just don’t work. Many of us would never wear our favourite outfit from our twenties in our forties; so why do we insist on wearing the same lingerie throughout our entire lives? Our breasts change in shape and composition as we age, and as a result, you should be changing the style of your bra to suit the changes happening to your body. Whether you think you need it or not, it’s always a good idea to have a professional bra fitting, not only to ensure you’re wearing the […]

It May Be Hump Day but to me It’s Like Monday

I sit here at my desk with so many things I could be writing and sharing with you all, but to formulate one simple blog post on one topic is really just not working for my all-over-the-place brain. I woke up on the right side of the bed with my five year old son snuggling me and being all happy with a great big hug. My son then proceeded to tell me that “there must be some cartoons on by now”. That meant *hint hint* Mama it’s time for you to wake up. I woke up, sort of. Kept hitting […]
