Talking Tax Lessons with Mi Familia and H&R Block {Giveaway}


The very first time I ever filed taxes, I was 18 years old and completely clueless. I didn't know where to go, what I needed, or what questions to ask. Being a new adult, I didn't want to ask my mom for that advice cause I wanted to seem like I knew what I was doing. I ended up owing taxes that year and when I told my mom she was shocked and demanded I take my tax filing to H&R Block for a … [Read more...]

Nose Protection Through Colds and Cats #ARMANDHAMMER


Winter is here and it's time to get your jackets, scarves and gloves out from the bottom of your closet. Well, except for us in Los Angeles (sorry!). Winter here is pretty awesome but there is one thing where we can relate to everyone. Winter = DRY. Which means for me...sinus infections, migraines and more. It isn't very pretty. For my daughter, who shares her germies with 24 other kids almost … [Read more...]

Holiday Stress Relief For Moms Of Colicky Babies

St Jude Opened My Heart To Give


I attended a media trip courtesy of St. Jude's Hospital for the purposes of this post. However, all thoughts and opinions are my own. St. Jude is a name that I've heard for years, and even though I knew that they were a hospital of some sort and was aware of opportunities to donate at supermarket checkout counters and charity walks, I never really knew what they did. That's until recently when I … [Read more...]
