Hello 2018! I Hope You’re Ready for Me!

We are three days into the new year, and I’m finally feeling well enough to sit up and type. I abhor being sick. I even got a flu shot this year, something I never do! Here I am sniffing away and trying to through because I have a heap of work to do. I’ve spent a good bit of time thinking of what direction I wanted to take the blog in for 2018.

Gift Giving Ideas for the Holidays with Babbleboxx

This post is sponsored by BabbleBoxx.com. Everyone has that one person in their lives that never wants anything for Christmas. In my family, that person would be me. I’m at a point where I have absolutely everything that I need, so there is nothing that I really want. Okay, I mean I would like a pair of Gucci loafers and a nice Louis Vuitton bag, but these are items I wouldn’t dare ask my family to purchase for me.  So, what do you get that person what either has everything or wants nothing? This year I’ve teamed up with BabbleBoxx to…
