I am NOT good in the kitchen. I repeat I’m good in the kitchen.  My husband jokingly reminds of ‘that one time’ when I couldn’t find prosciutto at Trader Joes so I bought a different type of cheese instead. Yes, you read that correctly. I thought prosciutto was cheese.  And yes, this was only a couple years ago. But what I am a pro at is finding good dishes that save time, money & stress.…

  Have you ever gotten this dreaded pop up on your Iphone right as you’re about to take a photo? If you’re anything like me, you then scrabble to try to delete any app that hasn’t been used recently or quickly remove some older photos where you didn’t look very good. By the time I free up space on my phone, the photo opt has likely passed. Getting frustrated that my ‘fixes’ were always temporary,…

As the seasons change, it always seems like the right time to re-organize, re-fresh, re-clean. Ummm..actually, who am I kidding. I do this daily. I don’t need a weather change as a prompt. But our car was in need of some major cleaning out and organizing after a summer of road trips and camping. The first area I’m tackling is the trunk! I like to keep essentials in a nice organized manner in the event that…

I love when I can make something easily at my home that would typically cost me a fortune at a store. There’s a bunch of new fancy lip scrubs out on the market today and although I can be a sucker for a fun new product, this one is just so simple to make on my own! This week’s Fast Fix Friday is an easy DIY lip scrub solution using stuff you already have at home. Right…

The last time I lived in a college dorm was my sophomore year of college, over 13 years ago. Starting my junior year, I moved to an off campus house with girlfriends and said goodbye to dorm life by throwing away my shower sandals & caddy in exchange for a bedroom without bunk-beds and a shower that wouldn’t cause foot fungus. Who would have thought over a decade later a shower caddy would be one of my best morning…

I’m a huge Google fan. I love that it has a suite of products (email, calendar, docs, surveys, hangout) all built in to one account to make life easier. Added perk is only one password to remember! But admittedly I wasn’t always a Gmail fan. I’m loyal and stick to what I know … which is Outlook. Yet my more tech savvy husband, Joe, convinced me of the Gmail appeal. Over the years, I’ve reluctantly…

I’m a lip balm addict. There I said it. But not because I want my lips looking great; it’s because my lips are ALWAYS chapped! Maybe it’s because I don’t drink enough water. (Coffee has water in it, right??? And I mean, wine DOES come from grapes.) Since I’m not giving up my two favorite beverages anytime soon and I can never seem to drink enough water, I always keep a super moisturizing lip balm on…

Apparently the amount of coffee I drink doesn’t correlate to the frequency that I clean my coffee maker. Even though I drink about a pot a day (I know, it’s gross), the last time I cleaned my coffee pot was over a year ago (yes, that’s even grosser). I remember that because when I cleaned it, I used vinegar. Super popular and there’s about a zillion Pinterest pins about it. Unfortunately for me, even though I rinsed and…
