This was our first time at a Cirque du Soleil show, so I wasn't sure what to expect. When the opportunity to visit presented itself, I had to visit Google to find out if it was appropriate for kids. In their FAQ's section, it states: "Like most of Cirque du Soleil’s shows, Amaluna is meant to entertain the whole family. That said, moments of loud noises and darkness used during the show may frighten some children."

Have you ever come across a post on social media that changed the way you see your world? I did, just this week. I came across a post on my newsfeed that showed dirty, rough hands. It had a story attached, that always piques my interest, so I read it and it hit me hard. My husband and I do so much for our kids so they never go without,…Continue

This would be our second visit to Busch Gardens this year, and I was excited because it's "Christmas Town" time! According to the weather forecast, there was only a 10% chance of rain, so I knew that meant 90% chance of rain. I was happy when we arrived because there was only a drizzle off and on...but that changed around mid day.
We arrived at…

I received three InStyler tools and I was excited to try them, because I saw them on TV and wondered if they actually worked for my hair type. My hair is naturally curly, but I don't have silky curls, I have coarse curls, so it's usually a battle trying to straighten my hair bone straight without using a hair relaxer. I won't say "never again", but after officially going natural in early 2013 I have…

Am I the only one disgusted by the whole idea of Black Friday beginning on Thanksgiving?
For the past few years, I've listened to stories of people waiting on long lines and camping out to save a hundred dollars on electronics. You see them on the news, right? Reporters interviewing someone standing alone days before a sale even…

Remember a while ago when I posted a photo asking if anyone can identify the poop I saw on my windowsill? When I shared the pic on a few social media pages, I received all sorts of answers. Field mice poop, snake poop, lizard poop, mole poop, etc. We've checked and although we do have snakes, rabbits, deer, turtles and other animals that frequent our yards, frogs consider my home paradise. I don't know why I didn't think of…Continue

The photo above is of the Melissa bag in blue. It has a zipper that opens from the top to halfway down the sides, about 22". The outside is made of 100% Genuine Saffiano Leather, it has 2 cell phone pockets, a…

I like to eat all types of food. What do you expect? I'm a half Trinidadian, 1/2 Puerto Rican woman who grew up with a Jamaican Stepfather who was a chef. Living in NY I had endless options when it came to food. NY is a Cultural melting pot. I frequented restaurants that served American food, loved Italian food and placed orders often at Chinese restaurants, lol. Man, my mouth is watering just thinking about…Continue

Every weekend my kids want to have company come over. I'm always reminding them that I don't have a built in card in my brain that automatically stores the contact information for everyone I meet, and neither do they, so they need to physically exchange numbers with their friends. Do they? No, but every weekend we seem to have…Continue

I'm going to be honest. When I opened the package and took a good look at the Bee Sili Silicone Grill and Oven Gloves, I DID NOT think they would actually protect my hands when handling hot food. They're a pretty pair of gloves and includes a really nice...FREE basting brush, but I mean really?…Continue

After posting about the 25% off discount for Mi Bella Reina's 24K Gold Face and Neck Mask, I couldn't wait for my shipment to arrive. I saw the stock photos, but I still wasn't sure what to expect. I've tried face masks in the past, but they would be creams that dry and I would have to peel off the pieces, or it…Continue

My son's birthday just passed. Since it's the beginning of the week and we'll be celebrating on the weekend, we knew we still had to do something ON his birthday so I baked a cake and cooked dinner. We always eat food at the same time, which is whatever time I finish cooking, but we eat in different rooms. My kids eat in the kitchen, I usually eat in my room while watching one of my favorite shows and my husband likes to eat in…Continue

My kids are always excited when a new toy shows up on our doorstep. Especially when they see it advertised on television, and they can say, "hey, I've tried that!"
When Zoomer's best friend Shadow showed up, my kids were all too…

I could not WAIT to visit Adventure Landing. Water + Park = Lots of fun! Especially since this Summer really sucked because of rain. Locally, our weather men and women would predict sunshine and we'd end up with a day full of lightening and thunder. I stopped listening to them years ago and knew when I checked the weather for Jacksonville and saw that it said 80% chance of rain, it would be perfect weather for…Continue

I have always wanted a mesh screen. I came close to purchasing one last year, but a friend of mine owns a few and always complained about how flimsy they were and that it didn't have an opening in the middle, so having to push it to the side to get through worked against keeping all bugs out. I was happy when a chance to try the Magnetic Screen Door came. Getting one that's supposedly the "#1 Best Screen" FREE? That's a…Continue

I was as excited as my husband and kids, anticipating this trip. When we got to the park, everything went smoothly. We picked up our tickets and went to the covered area waiting for our ticket number to be called for the airboat tour. There were a lot of people there, but the wait for the airboat tour was only about 10 minutes.
I know from seeing…

I have been using whitening toothpastes since I was a teen. I know the types of food eaten can result in yellow, cream color teeth and I like coffee but I don't drink it often enough for it to have an affect (at least I don't think it should). I've tried whitening strips, gels, mouth wash, some…Continue

A few weeks ago I posted photos on my instagram page showing how beautifully my mother in law's fruits plants have grown. She has a papaya tree, avocado tree, banana tree, mango tree and more grown. There are a few others in their beginning stages. It only took about 5 years for some of her plants to start bearing fruit and I was thinking I should've started growing plants as soon as we bought our house. By now I would have…Continue
