The 100% Real Face of Depression


On Monday I made a video. 

I needed someone to talk to, so I talked to myself. Normally I journal. I had to make a video instead.

I had no intention of ever sharing the video.

At that particular moment in time I was overwhelmed with sadness and felt I had no one to talk to. Of the handful of people I know, they were either at work or just didn't want to hear any more of my sob stories.

So, why am I posting this here?

A True Story of Love and Rescue: Susie's Hope


I'll tell you, I did not waste any time replying to this review with a big, bold YES! Animal rescue is something that is very dear to my heart. I feel like their is a special place in this world for animal abusers and I will use my voice to speak with those who are unable to speak for themselves. My 9 year-old boxer, Casey, is a rescue. I adopted her when she was 6 months old. Someone had dumped her and left her to die in the 100+ degree Oklahoma summer with no where to go.

Enough with Elf on the Shelf

I'm going to go on a bit of a rant today.

Just because I can.

When you're a blogger you see a lot of great things floating around the blogosphere, but you also see a lot of not-so-good.

Today I want to talk about Elf on the Shelf. Maybe touch on Kindness Elves and/or the Kindness Mouse.

The Adventures of Ralph Ribbit by Louise T. Constantinople


Guys, I'm a sucker for a good kids book. I still read teen/young adult novels from time to time. I think because I was reading authors like Stephen King at the age kiddo is now (almost 10) I sort of skipped over the a lot of other books. I did real a lot of Judy Blume, Beverly Cleary, and RL Stine. I had a hard time with the Babysitters Club series though. Funny, I cringe at the thought of kiddo reading Carrie at her age. I was also reading Edgar Allen Poe and JR Tolkien as well. I am not sure she could even figure those out. When it comes to reading, I was a little more advanced. My mother went to college for English Literature until I was born. Books were the normal was of life for me and our house was packed with them.

WalMart Fall Beauty Box Review

You may not know this, but I did some reviews for Ipsy. I didn't write about it or really do a lot of videos because it was just too hard to keep up with. Every month I received a cute little bag with an assortment of products. A  lot of it was strange makeup I would never use. I work from home so I don't put on makeup daily so there was another group of products I would never get to.
