Unbox Me: Rocksbox Review

I like the idea of having new and pretty designer jewelry to try… Read more »

Of course, I had to create a guide for the kids. Now, this is based off of toys for girls, since that’s what I’m an expert at. Really, it’s the toys and such that I know my kids have been asking for and what I believe will be a hit in any household with girls. I have to mention that even though they’re technically “girls toys” I see nothing wrong… Read more »

Primetime Premiere Week – 5 Shows I’m Excited For

Television 4

Ah, The Big Bang Theory, how I’ve missed you. It’s been over 8 long, hilarious years. After that kicker of a season finale, I was definitely itching to see what would happen between Sheldon and Amy. I actually just watched this and although it wasn’t particularly humor-filled, there were still classic moments that made me chuckle. Sheldon is still oblivious and self-centered. I can’t help but love that guy. But,… Read more »
