Easy Personal Cloud Storage with MiMedia


Summer is upon us and planning vacations is the first step in making family memories that will last a lifetime. I am totally guilty of being that Mom that constantly has the camera or phone out trying to capture it all. But capturing those memories isn’t enough. I mean does anyone else get a little antsy about the fact that their photos, videos, documents and music are all over the place? At my house we have them spread among our various laptops, phones, a tablet and more and that doesn’t even include the grandparents. I like...

Back to School Target Gift Card Giveaway


It's Back to School season and we're hosting a Target Gift Card Giveaway to help make buying all those school supplies a little easier. As much as I love the fun of summer, I was definitely that kid who wanted to go all out and organize my folders and supplies well before the start of school. Sometimes I think it was more fun getting all prepared for school than actually attending, ha. Now that I'm grown up, I haven't changed a bit. I'm still a kid at heart about school supplies and love looking down that...

How to Get Soft Skin for Spring and a Year’s Supply of Dove Giveaway

If there is one thing that I want when warm weather hits, it's soft skin. I certainly don't want bare dry scaly skin and seeing as we hit ninety degrees here in Florida the other day, my days of covering up are over. I have a very simple routine for how to get soft skin and it consists of just three steps: 1. Exfoliate 2. Use a moisturizing body wash 3. Moisturize with a cream or balm Exfoliation is key as it helps smooth out my skin and get rid of any winter induced dryness that's still hanging around. It's...

I live for the moment when I can actually rock a pair here in Tampa without getting heat stroke. Haha!

Online Savvy Shopping and $250 Giveaway From American Express

It was 11:00am on a hot summer morning.  That day's flash sale email with its oh so fabulous details blinked across my screen.  I was multitasking at work on another monitor and out of the corner of my eye spied a vintage world map.  Immediately I squealed with delight and after briefly reading the description hit the check out button on my shopping cart with zeal. After all, this would make a great gift for Floyd and he is SO not easy to shop for.  A few days later the map arrived and I am sad to say...

It's Monday once again, which means it's Monday Mingle time! We, along with Momtrends and Glamamom, would like to welcome you to our weekly fashion focused link up!
