My Quick and Easy Morning Beauty Routine #bareMinerals #MorningRescue

I’d like to thank bareMinerals for sponsoring this post. I’m not much of a girlie-girl these days. I don’t have a shopping addiction and my closet isn’t lined with shoes. With that said, makeup is something that I’ve always loved. I actually really enjoy that quiet time in front of the mirror in the mornings, […]

Summer Skin Care Pick: Blue Lizard

I’d like to thank Blue Lizard Australian Sunscreen for sponsoring this post. There were so many years of my life when I simply didn’t consider using sun protection. My thinking took a dramatic turn when my mother was diagnosed with skin cancer on her face about a decade ago. Luckily, she was able to have […]

6 Powerful Toenail Fungus Home Remedies

Toenail fungus—you probably feel a little grossed out just reading those words, right? No need to feel that way: toenail fungus is a very common condition “…that begins as a white or yellow spot under the tip of your fingernail or toenail. As the fungal infection goes deeper, nail fungus may cause your nail to […]

Parents of Picky Eaters, Unite! #WelcomeToToddlerhood

I’d like to thank Go & Grow by Similac® Food Mix-Ins for sponsoring this post. As the mom of two picky eaters (I may or may not have served my daughter mac and cheese 11 times this week), I literally laughed out loud when I saw this cute video from Mommy Shorts called 12 Problems […]

My name is Crissy–short for Cristina (which is very rarely uttered). I am a 30-year-old WAHM (not to be confused with WHAM!, the British pop duo) living in Ohio. When I’m not changing diapers, I work as a professional lifestyle portrait and wedding photographer. Motherhood has proven to be nothing less than spectacular so far, and my kiddo is an absolute jewel.

Dear Mom Bloggers: Are You Utilizing Google Friend Connect Newsletters?

Posted on November 8, 2010 at 9:44am 0 Comments

When I decided to get serious about growing my readership last spring, I

knew that one way to gain new followers would be to start utilizing Google Friend Connect. You’re probably quite familiar with Google Friend Connect Members Gadget, but if not, it’s that little collection of faces on my right sidebar with a Join This Site

button on top. At least 90% of the blogs I visit are using the Members

Gadget,… Continue

Is it Always Appropriate to Reach Out to Fellow Mom Bloggers?

Posted on September 22, 2010 at 1:30pm 0 Comments

I have been writing online for a long time, but only within the past six months did I become fully conscious of mom blogging as a distinct subset. I wasn’t aware that so many moms were finding

such creative ways to monetize their blogs, and even partner with top

brands, but when I opened my eyes and took a good look around, I

immediately began to wonder which avenues these women took to align

themselves for success. For me, the obvious way to gleam insight was… Continue

A Question for WAHM's: Are you Getting any Work Done?

Posted on September 14, 2010 at 6:15pm 0 Comments

Since, having my son last year, I have referred to myself no less than a thousand times as a WAHM (work at home mom, on the off-chance someone reading is not familiar with this acronym.) I am a mom, and do most of my work as a photographer and writer from home. What I am finding, however, is that my life as a WAHM means I spend my entire day in the Mommy role, caring for my 1-year-old. During… Continue
