Smarty Pants Shower Curtain Liner Keeps Everything Clear!

Smarty Pants Shower Curtain Liner Keeps Everything Clear!

We needed a new shower curtain liner. Boy howdy, did we. Or DID we? It seems that I had just bought one not that long ago…Ugh. I am not a very smarty pants when it comes to this sort of thing. I don’t like it when my shower curtain liner gets all gross and no matter how much I work at keeping it not gross – it inevitably ends up heading in that direction, to the point where I’m ready to pack it in and just buy another … Read more…


Ray Harrington Brings Funny Back to Portland!

Ray Harrington Brings Funny Back to Portland!

Ray Harrington is funny. And not just because I know him personally. I barely do, actually. He was in a thing and my husband worked on that thing and then we went to the premiere of the thing and then there’s been some Facebook… ANYway. Ray Harrington is funny. And if you’ve never seen him do his thing on stage, you are missing out. Funny – I said. Engaging – just ask Scott. Endearing – go ahead and make it all about Finn for the next 17 years; … Read more…

Organic Vitamin C 20% Serum Formula – It Just Feels Good

Organic Vitamin C 20% Serum Formula – It Just Feels Good

It just feels good. I’m not one for putting a bunch of gunk on my face. I never have been and probably never will. Which is why I love this Organic Vitamin C 20% Serum Formula from Elleda. It’s light, organic, and just feels good on my face after applying it. As I age, I realize that there are ways to stall the process of looking older. Some folks say that ‘it’s better to look good than feel good’. Perhaps that’s true; however, I prefer to also feel … Read more…


The Dating Do-Over – a Book Review

The Dating Do-Over – a Book Review

When given the opportunity to review The Dating Do-Over, I thought: why not… I love to read, I’m almost done with my current book, and HEY…this one looks interesting! Forget for a minute that it was slightly outside my usual favorite genre (mystery/psychological thriller/suspense). Um, okay. Pretty far outside… But that’s where Cathy Spencer nailed it with her fabulous preview for this book. It. Is. Always. Important. To. Write. A. Good. Preview. I was intrigued by the plot and curious to know whether Viv (NOT Viviane, as her … Read more…

Bioque Pronto: Takes Care of Wrinkles Just That Fast!

Bioque Pronto: Takes Care of Wrinkles Just That Fast!

Bioque Pronto. I love the name of this product. Pronto. If it’s going to happen (and I am a must-see-results kind of girl), I surely don’t mind it happening pronto. Call it impatience if you will; I’m willing to bet that I’m not the only one with “instant gratification” issues. (Okay, that’s probably a life lesson to be explored later on – I really do never know what’s going to come from my head through my fingers, sometimes.) ANYway… Bioque Pronto. It’s in the name. This wrinkle(s) and … Read more…


Weeks 9-11: Whole House Organization: Addresses/Contacts, Mail, and Paying Bills

Weeks 9-11: Whole House Organization: Addresses/Contacts, Mail, and Paying Bills

I decided to combine these three weeks – Addresses/Contacts, Mail, and Paying Bills – of whole house organization because they sort of go together and I already have some pretty good routines set up for most of each. Mostly. I said. When I first read over the Addresses/Contacts post from Taylor at Home Storage Solutions 101, I was a little nervous because this one is messy. I am that person who has to call my aunt (raised up family) or my mom (the bio one ๐Ÿ™‚ ) when … Read more…

Feel Rejuvenated with True Skin Care Eye Gel

I’m getting old… …er. And while I have never been too concerned with wrinkles, scars, and aging in general (every piece of me makes up who I am), I am realizing that there’s no reason I should hurry anything along, either. Besides, it’s not even about the bonus of looking younger; I wanted to feel rejuvenated. My eye area is one that does give me pause…some wrinkles that simply weren’t there yesterday… Enter True Skin Care Eye Gel. I wanted to feel rejuvenated, not weighed down with a … Read more…
