My Husbands Shows Us His Knife Skills!

“I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Calphalon. I received product samples and a promotional item to thank me for my participation.”

calphalon-knife-set Anyone who knows my husband (eek! I just said husband! #newlyweds) and I will tell you what big foodies we are! We love to try out new restaurants, test out recipes, and spend date nights chatting over a hot cooked meal.

We recently just moved in to our new home and are in the process of putting our kitchen together. Even though we still have boxes scattered about, I am so glad that we have the Calphalon Self-Sharpening Cutlery Set. It has everything we need to chop, slice, and cut our way to a delicious dinner.

*Note to all newlyweds, register for this knife set! It has all the essentials and because it’s self sharpening you’ll have a much easier time getting your cook on in the kitchen. Continue Reading

Caviar Shampoo?! Does it Really Work?


You did not mis-read the headline.

We are putting caviar in our hair today! Kind of.

I had the pleasure of checking out the Alterna Caviar Anti-Aging haircare line. I was super excited to try it because the longer my hair gets the more care it needs. My ends seem to get drier as they inch closer to the floor and the last thing I want to do is chop them off just to make them feel healthy again. Continue Reading

There are only a few days left to plan a Halloween bash! I know it can be tough to throw a last-minute party but today I’m teaming up with Orange Fanta soda and CVS to help you pull-off a fun last-minute Halloween shindig.

For my first tip, and one of the most important things to keep in mind when trying to do anything last-minute, is to keep it simple! When you are short on time, it’s best to choose a theme/concept that is easy to execute. For example, I decided on a “Soda & Sweets” theme with bright and bubbly Fanta Orange Soda. I also chose to visit CVS which is close by and rarely has a line, major time saver!

American Express Serve Cash Back Card

“I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for American Express Serve. I applied for the Serve Cash Back card to facilitate my review and received a promotional item to thank me for my participation.”


It’s been a crazy week! I’m married, I’m moved out, and I am so excited about the future!

I’ll be sharing a fun “life lately” post to fill you guys in on the details soon but today, I wanted to chat about something I had shared with you a few posts back (here). Do you remember the American Express Serve Cash Back Card I had mentioned?

Well, for a week, instead of using my regular debit card, I swapped it out for the American Express Serve Cash Back Card. The first thought that popped into my head every time I used my new card to pay was, “I shouldn’t be charging this!” but I would instantly remember that this was NOT a credit card. Not only was I not racking up mountains of debit, I was actually EARNING cash back. Continue Reading
