Girls Night In With Krispies Kreations

Girls Night In

Whenever my husband is away on a business trip, my 20-something year old daughter and I lock eyes and silently scream, “Girls Night In with Krispies Kreations!”  This usually means a night of relaxation with a movie, as in, we get to choose the snacks, the movie AND have complete control over the remote.  I […]

Dessange Paris California Blonde Review

Dessenge Product Review

I have extremely dry hair.  When you add in lowlights, highlights and sunlight, well, my hair can be a hot mess.  I’m sure you guessed by now that I’m not a natural blonde, but I play one in real life.  And, it’s true, blondes do have more fun! I’ve tried expensive specialty salon shampoos and […]

DIY Showcase Sunday

Welcome to the DIY Sunday Showcase 3/22 edition!  Thanks for stopping by! My spring flowers are blooming and the Bradford pear trees lining my drive are arrayed in snowy white blossoms. They’re gorgeous!  They stink, but they’re beautiful.  Except for one. I remember when we planted those trees over 15 years ago.  They were so […]
