I love shopping. For myself, for friends, for family – it is just something I really enjoy. Whenever I do shop though, I am usually looking for companies that give back. And that is what I found in My Gift Stop. They not only offer luxury goods at an affordable price, they are dedicated to giving back to society! My Gift Stop does this by donating 5% of every sale to the global medical relief nonprofit, Direct Relief. They have great gift ideas for just about anyone in your life including name brand sunglasses, handbags, shoes, and more. My mom and sister both have birthdays coming up, and here are my top 5 birthday gift ideas from My Gift Stop.
Have you ever heard that you spend half your life in bed? Well, it is true and that is why it is important to invest in the right mattress. When my husband and I purchased a new mattress, it changed our lives. We are also pretty environment conscious people, so we knew we needed something eco-friendly. And if we could find a mattress company that is involved in charity work, even better. Here are 10 reasons you should go green with a Natures Novel Mattress from Sweet Zzz.
My husband and I have been wanting to add under cabinet lighting in our kitchen for quite some time. Basically since we moved in. We have learned that updating our home every now and then can do wonders for it. Sometimes, it can even make a room feel like a whole new home! We had been told that under cabinet lighting can be a pain to install and requires all sorts of tools – but that is not true with Black + Decker PureOptics LED Lighting Kits! It took less than 15 minutes to install this lighting in our kitchen and we were THRILLED with the results!
My girls are growing like weeds – and I don’t think I am the only parent with this problem. They outgrow their clothes so quickly, that I really can’t justify shopping as often as we need to. I have spent time shopping at consignment stores but there is always so much to go through. Not to mention, it really is hard to find the time to get out there. Luckily, there is an easy site to shop at – Swap.com – where you can browse more gently used clothing than you could ever imagine. And not just for kids, for adults too!
I have many women in my life that I shop for – my mom, my sister, my in-laws, and of course, my BFFs. This time of year, I am always looking to support companies that give back. And that is just what My Gift Stop does. They not only offer luxury goods at an affordable price, they are dedicated to giving back to society! My Gift Stop does this by donating 5% of every sale to the global medical relief nonprofit, Direct Relief.

One of my favorite things about the holidays is hosting friends and families.

Be the envy of your family and friends with the kitchen of everyone’s dreams!
My husband and I have discovered that there are lots of easy household tricks you can do in order to save money. We are always looking for ways to do this, and one we love is Dryel. Between the two of us, we wear a lot of clothes that are recommended to be taken to the dry cleaners. With Dryel, we can dry clean our clothes at home in just three easy steps for a fraction of the cost of a professional dry cleaners. It works just as well (if not better) and takes just about 15 minutes of our time. There is pretty much no reason not to use it!
Right now, the state of healthcare in the country is up in the air. No one really knows what will remain available for those that need help. So if you are currently worried about affordable healthcare, I want to tell you about SingleCare. With SingleCare you can save on prescriptions, dental, vision, and even on-demand virtual doctor visits. Whether it’s a life-saving drug or a routine dental cleaning, they believe consumers should be able to compare costs for healthcare services. They know how important it is to get care without worrying about networks, coverage limitations, or deductibles.
I have always enjoyed cooking, but I am not one for coming up with good recipes. I have many cookbooks, but honestly I can flip through one for an hour and still not know what I want to make for dinner. That is one of the many reasons I love Terra’s Kitchen. They make dinners easy by sending you the ingredients you need – already prepped. They have a good amount of recipes to choose from, but not too many that you can’t decide. And the recipes are really easy to follow.
I don’t open up about this much, but I once had my identity stolen. Someone took a check that was written for a car payment out of my mailbox and used that check to get access to my bank account numbers. Not only did I have to deal with them withdrawing a ridiculous amount of money from my bank account, I ended up being late on that car payment because the check never made it to where it was going. This certainly didn’t help my credit score.
