Monday, May 22, 2017


DISCLOSURE: As an NCircle Ambassador, I received a free DVD for review purposes. All opinions are my own.

Our family have been fans of the Octonauts, since their debut on the Disney Channel in 2012. My kids love watching all the different rescue missions and learning about all the different sea creatures. Plus, they like singing along to the theme song.

I first learned about the Spider Crab from an Octonauts episode!

Revlon ColorStay Eye Makeup Review

DISCLOSURE: I received free samples from Crowdtap to facilitate this review. All opinions are my own.

My eye makeup routine is pretty simple. I put concealer under my eyes. I put some eye shadow on. I tightline my top lid and then put a little mascara on. I never really do anything with my brows, other than brush through them and get them threaded every couple weeks.

Recently, I had the chance to try Revlon ColorStay™ 2-in-1 Angled Kajal Eyeliner, Revlon ColorStay™ Crème Eye Shadow, Revlon ColorStay™ Brow Pencil, and Revlon Super Length Mascara. Since I've never really done anything to my brows before, I was excited to give it a go.

The Claude Moore Colonial Farm at Turkey Run

Wednesday, May 10, 2017


We have a goal this year to visit as many national parks as we can. We got a little off track, but managed to visit one on Easter morning. We were going to a lunch at my sister's in Leesburg, VA, so we took a side trip to visit The Claude Moore Colonial Farm at Turkey Run in McLean, VA.


Fintastic Finds At The Georgia Aquarium

Thursday, April 27, 2017



DISCLOSURE: I received discounted admission in exchange for a review. All opinions are my own.

I love visiting aquariums. I've only been to a handful, including the National Aquarium in Baltimore, MD, North Carolina Aquarium in Roanoke Island, Sea World San Diego, Sea World Orlando and the Adventure Aquarium in Camden, NJ. But I think my favorite so far has been the Georgia Aquarium in Atlanta. I had a chance to visit during Spring Break this year and I loved it! There's so much to see and do at the Georgia Aquarium. But, to keep this post from getting too long, I'm just going to talk about my family's favorite things we saw and did.

Almay Healthy Glow Makeup + Gradual Self Tan - REVIEW

Monday, April 24, 2017



DISCLOSURE: I received free products from Crowdtap to facilitate this post. All opinions are my own.

I tan pretty well. If I spend enough time outside during the summer, I get pretty dark. This was me last summer, hanging out with my buddies, Wilbur and Orville Wright. That was after spending two weeks at the beach.

Tan and chilling with my homies
So, I've never even considered trying a self-tanner before. Yes, I'm more pale in the cooler months, but I actually prefer that over being too tan. Recently, I was sent a sample of Almay Healthy Glow Makeup + Gradual Self Tan. It combines a medium coverage makeup with a gradual self tanner.
