10 Things You Need If You Love Unicorns!


My daughter decided she wants a unicorn themed birthday party this year and I am thrilled! I have loved unicorns since I was a child and still do. My daughter also made a birthday list which includes unicorn earrings, unicorn fingernail polish, and even a unicorn perfume set that smells like rainbows. While I may not be able to find the many many unicorn themed items she has asked for, I have been finding some awesome unicorn products on Amazon!

Amazon Prime: Is It Worth It? Try For FREE!

If you are anything like me, you do a ton of online shopping! I would say about 90% of my birthdays and Christmas gifts are purchased online with the majority coming from Amazon. The one thing that I hate about buying online, though, is paying for shipping! That’s just wasted money to me. With Amazon Prime, you get unlimited FREE two day shipping with no minimum. Of course, the products have to be Prime eligible, but you can usually find anything you want that is eligible.

But wait, there’s more! While the free 2 day shipping is worth the $99/year or $11/month, Amazon Prime offers so many other benefits:

-Free streaming music

-Free movies and TV shows

-Free unlimited photo storage

-Free kindle books

-Amazon Dash Button

– Savings on diapers


Still not convinced that Amazon Prime is for you? Try Amazon Prime 30-Day Free Trial and I guarantee you will not be disappointed!

An Easier Way to Test for UTI

A couple of months ago, I posted about my kidneys and how I spent all this time and money thinking that I had a UTI, but I really didn’t. You can read about that here. While I do know what was causing the pain now, it would have been nice to have known whether or not it was likely that I had a urinary tract infection.

This is where Healthy Wiser’s Urinalysis Reagent Test Strips would have been of great help. These test strips test ten different components of your urine: Continue reading “An Easier Way to Test for UTI”

Derma Roller- 200 Needles in the Name of Beauty


Have you ever heard of microneedling? This is where you take a roller with a bunch of tiny needles and roll it over your skin, creating tiny punctures called “microchannels”. Why would anybody do this? Well, in doing this, it triggers your body’s healing process which will replace your old skin with healthy, new tissue. In other words, it stimulates collagen and elastin production and renews skin cells.

Special Announcement- YouTube Channel


I am very excited, and kind of terrified, to announce that I started a YouTube channel. This is something I have been wanting to do for a while, so I am finally taking that step. I am very shy and  nervous about it, but I know that in time I will get more comfortable. My first video is already up, though it was just something I originally made for Instagram. Join me on this new journey and subscribe to my channel! If you have a YouTube channel, comment below and leave a link, so I can check it out!

I thought about making a list of makeup palettes that I want so that if my husband ever needed a gift idea, he could just refer to the list. I decided, though, that I may as well make it a list right here on the blog, so others can get some ideas of what is out there! Some of these are new, others are older. Some are big brands and some are small businesses. Continue reading “Makeup Wishlist- Eyeshadow Palettes”
