Don’t Just Save. Live!

Don’t Just Save. Live!

On My Mind 0

One thing that is always on my mind: Money Being an adult means thinking about money. Making money. Saving money. And of course, spending money. I’m naturally a frugal person, always looking for the best deal, not buying things (for the most part) unless they’re on sale, and not really taking any time out to spoil myself. This is especially true after I became a mother, as basically all that… Read more »

Adult Book Reviews, Blog Tours 0 ★★★★★

One Line: So much love for this book! In My Opinion: Add to cart! Anna totally has another amazing book in her arsenal. I loved every minute of this book. This was exactly what I was looking for when I wanted a book that resembled the fun and romance of “The Bachelor/Bachelorette” without any sleaziness. I was seriously on a Bachelor kick for a minute there because of the show… Read more »

Unbox Me: Rocksbox Review

Reviews, Unbox Me 0

Rocksbox is a new subscription service that approached me and asked me to give them a try. It’s basically a designer jewelry subscription box that sends its members pieces on loan for only $19/month. At first, I was skeptical about a subscription that only let you “borrow” items, but this service has grown on me so much. I like the idea of having new and pretty designer jewelry to try… Read more »

This is a post that I’ve been meaning to get up for over a year now, and I don’t know why I kept pushing it off. I love talking about Vietnamese culture and sharing what I know.

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 »

One Line: A nice end to an entertaining series. In My Opinion: Add to cart! There’s plenty of drama and excitement for the Diamond sisters in this last installment. It was nice to see how much growth each of the girls went through, some more than others, and nice to see them get their HEAs. Courtney still shines as my favorite and the one I connect with the most. Peyton… Read more »
