Create the Perfect Easter Tablescape with Keller’s Creamery Butter Bunnies + Recipe Bonus!

This is a sponsored post with Keller’s Creamery. All opinions are my own. Growing up in the South meant that you maybe lived in a home that had a room that was off limits or only used for special occasions. These rooms held the really expensive furniture that no children were allowed to sit on our even think about being near. Quite honestly, sometimes I felt that if you even looked into the room as you passed by you’d turn to stone. For us, that room was the formal dining room. It held a grand China cabinet and a large…

Using Carefree® in the Morning Creates Carefree and Confident Days!

I was asked to participate in the #CarefreeMornings campaign, sponsored by Carefree at Target. Although I have been compensated, all opinions are my own. Most people dread mornings, but I’ve found that mornings are what you make them. You chart the direction of your day by your morning thoughts.

I’ve found that I’m more productive and able to successfully achieve my goals when I wake up and immediately get started on my day. Of course, I always take…

I’ve Been a Horrible Friend Lately, And Here’s How I’m Hoping to Change

This post is sponsored by McDonald’s, but the content and opinions expressed here are my own. I have a confession to make. I’ve been a horrible friend, but not on purpose. Since January 3rd my life has been devoted strictly to getting the elephant out of the room, that elephant being my Ph.D. dissertation. I’ve been locked in my house with eyes glazed over in front of my computer just typing away giving little care to what’s going on in the outside world. While my friends understand how important it is for me to get this part of my life…

Clarins Opens Its First US Store in the King of Prussia Mall!

In “consider yourself lucky news” Clarins, the beloved French skincare brand, opened their first United States standalone store in the King of Prussia Mall back in January and I got an exclusive invite to attend the store opening. One of my favorite products of the brand is their Lotus Face Oil which will get your oily skin in check with the quickness. The Clarins Store is unlike any other beauty store I’ve been to and well, being the Philly Beauty girl I’ve been to a lot of beauty stores. Not only do they have products catering to men (hello!), women,…
