I’m NOT a bad mother, better mother, worse mother or the best mother. I am a MOTHER & so are you!

I am a Mother

Today the gloves are coming off and this may be one of my most emotionally charged blog posts I have done since opening up about Bella’s birth and almost losing not only her, but my own life. Hopefully this post won’t be directed at you, but if you happen to be the type of person that is being described please step off your crooked pedestal and listen up!

After 5+ years of being a blogger and working day after day in this very dark and negative place called social media I have had enough. I’ve seriously blown my top and if I didn’t need my computer to earn a living to raise my children I would toss the thing out the side door! Some days I absolutely dread coming online as it is so depressing day in and day out to see all the hate and negativity that has become of social media.

This post is for you, that self-proclaimed “perfect mother”, the one throwing stones bigger than your ego from your very fragile glass house. You my dear need to take your opinions and shove them right where the sunshine & lollipops you pretend your life is filled with don’t shine!

Ditch Your Ugly Winter Skin With Help From Shoppers Drug Mart #SDMWinterSkin

Shoppers_drug_mart_Logo

How many people suffer from what I like to call ugly winter skin? What is ugly winter skin you ask, well I define it as dry, flaky and most definitely itchy skin and I deal with this each and every winter season. I have tried to intake more water because I heard that helps keep the skin hydrated but apparently the amount of water it seems I would have to drink to hydrate this skin of mine would probably kill me before my skin improved – or so it seems!

I can’t remember a winter season that I fought with makeup application looking awful because of my dry winter skin. Or lets discuss why you will never catch me in anything but pants all winter long because my poor legs look like the Sahara desert. I will admit I have tried many products and some have improved things slightly while others have failed to do anything more than make my skin smell pretty.

#DIY Easy 10-Minute Peppermint Candy Cane Sugar Scrub

Peppermint Candy Cane Sugar Scrub

I love making gifts for my family, whether it is baking them a sweet array of delicious treats or these amazing sugar scrubs I am always finding new things to create for them.

This year I wanted to gift all the women in my life a little “me-time” where they can pamper themselves. Of course I have yet to win the lottery so buying them all a day at the spa was out of the question. I scoured online what I could make for them and had a few ideas floating around in my head. It came down to bath bombs or sugar scrub and since I love all things sugar scrubs it wasn’t hard to make that final cut.

These super simple 10-minute D.I.Y Peppermint Candy Cane Sugar Scrubs are the perfect gift for any lady on your gift giving list.
