Last year I came across the clothing brand Mango, and my obsession has taken over! While in London, my husband and I stopped into one of their stores to see their new fall line, and thank goodness my suitcase was already full because I would have purchased the entire store.

Say YES to Affordable at Home Teeth Whitening Treatment

June 26, 2019

My Grandmother would always say to me, “Your smile is contagious!” I always knew since then; my best asset was my smile. When I was younger, during a family photo shoot, I noticed my teeth weren’t as sparkly white as I would like, which I felt needed to be corrected – ASAP! For Christmas, my parents gave me teeth whitening from our dentist office as a gift. YAY!…

Easy Pumpkin Muffins and Pumpkin Bread

November 15, 2018

I love cooking scrumptious baked goods at the house. The delicious aroma fills the house and nothing beats eating a warm, moist pumpkin muffin right after it’s been freshly baked (be sure to cool before eating). Over the years, I started adding baked goods into my routine and that seems to make people wanting more…especially my husband. My wonderful mother-in-law gave me a couple of recipes that were…
