Mother’s Day is almost here, and let’s face it, sometimes we like to give little “hints” to our loved ones about what special gifts we want for our special day! Or better yet, you can even treat yourself!
Now that we have kids, we don’t have as much extra spending cash like we used to. Raising a family is fantastic, but it brings on a lot of new expenses.
It’s completely worth it, but alas, I can’t help but miss buying little things for myself here and there on a whim. Now my goal is to always find that fantastic bargain - either great sales or great little finds. You know, those fantastic little treasures you always get compliments on, and you think to yourself, little do they know how much I spent on this!

The holidays are here again, and it’s time for some holiday shopping! I have put together a list of ten great gifts for kids that are fun, creative and many of them have been personally tested by my daughter!
So here we go! (BTW these are in no order of importance.)

This season you’ll be seeing a lot of rich and vibrant plum and berry colors in lipstick. Not just the light glosses, but deep, strong colors making your lips really stand out.
I recently interviewed Amel Najjar, the Executive Director of an amazing organization, Children of War Foundation, where they raise money to provide surgical care for children around the world who otherwise would not have access to it in their region.
