New Product Review Club Opportunity: OxiClean™ Max Force™ White Revive™SponsoredI shared recently
that my home is Grand Central Station to three busy kids, a neighbourhood-ful of friends, and our two pets. Now in the middle of summer vacation it's only gotten busier.

New Product Review Club Offer: Arm & Hammer™ Spinbrush™ Truly Radiant™ ToothbrushSponsoredA few years ago I jumped on the power toothbrush bandwagon and never looked back. In fact, due to my raving I know of quite a few people who received a power brush in their Christmas stocking. Most of them were initially disappointed (kind of like receiving socks, you know?) but everybody changed their tune after using these miracle workers for a week.

Every year I resolve to do more for my health. Not being strict enough to go completely over the top with my health resolutions, I tend to pick a new, very achievable goal every couple of months in the hopes of turning it into a long term habit.

I think after the horrible winter we had this year, we all deserve a little pick-me-up pressie, don't you?
Mine came in the mail recently from an online spending binge: a gorgeous black sleeveless top with a bit of a peplum-y flare at the waist. And while I was at it, I tossed a chunky statement necklace into my e-cart, too.
