A Mother’s Love

This post is sponsored by Hallmark.  Thoughts and opinions are my own.

My mother wasn’t the typical homemaker type of mom. I was lucky to get a home-cooked meal on Sundays. She worked long hours and sometimes two jobs to make sure I had everything I needed. Even though I’ve taken a different route in my motherhood journey, that never made her any less of a mother to me. It takes a strong woman to be a mother or mother figure in someone’s life. Motherhood is labor intensive, long hours, and with lots of sacrifices. Moms deserve to be celebrated on Mother’s Day and every other day. What better way to show appreciation than with diamonds.  Hallmark always knows how to make a mom feel special for Mother’s day with their beautiful cards.  This year Hallmark is giving moms more with the Hallmark Diamonds Heart of Hallmark Collection for JCPenney.

New Anti-Aging Night Beauty Routine with Olay

This post is sponsored by Olay for Walmart.  Thoughts and opinions are my own.

Wedding Guest Dresses Under $100

I love going to weddings and witnessing unions.  Most of the weddings that I’ve attended, I’ve been a bridesmaid.  This year my oldest nephew is getting married and I get to attend as a guest.  That means I need to find something to wear.  After going through my closet, nothing I own (or can fit) says wedding.  I only have a couple of weeks to find something cute to wear.  Just in case you were in the same boat as me I thought I would share some dresses that have caught my eye.

5 Tips to Get Your Kids Ready for Spring

This post is sponsored by Everywhere Agency on behalf of OshKosh B’gosh; however, all thoughts and opinions expressed are my own.

Spring is well under way.  Temps in Atlanta have been all over the place but mainly in the high 70’s.  I’ve officially packed up Peyton’s and Harper’s winter clothes in exchange for some fresh new threads from OshKosh B’gosh.  One of my first stops for shopping for the girls at the top of the season is to OshKosh.  You can count on them to have most stylish and comfortable clothing for kids.  I wanted to share a few tips on how I spring clean the girls’ closets and prepare them for new spring and summer fashions.
