While the thought of remote working used to be somewhat rare in most fields, it’s now a necessity for many people. This change has been thrown upon many of us without any time to prepare and no prior experience. While some companies have offered the option of working from home for a while, it has been recommended in many areas that everybody work from home unless it is absolutely critical for them to be at the office. Ideally, having some time to prepare yourself for working from home would have been best, however, there is still time for you to get settled so that youRead More →

This was supposed to be a one month challenge but the world decided to upend every routine we had and so here we are two months later with our cleaning routine results!

Building self-esteem can be challenging. When you’re a young child you have many people encouraging you as you learn new skills and (hopefully) looking out for you as you figure things out. It’s not until we get older, venture out in the world and have to deal with negative social interactions like bullying and are faced with more serious consequences to our failures – like losing out on a job, or failing a course in school, that many of us start to doubt ourselves and our abilities. Creating self-esteem as an adult can be a special challenge because we tend to get caught up inRead More →

Getting a new job can be a wonderful and exciting time for a family! Often new jobs and new careers come with the promise of increased pay or opportunities for future growth that can make a large difference in your future. You should celebrate the changes to come but it’s also completely normal to be a bit nervous about the challenges that moving for work can bring with it. This is especially true if the job transfer happens to be a long-distance move with family and pets involved. Navigating a move can be difficult at the best of times. Finding the time to pack allRead More →

Most of us have first aid kits at home – or at the very least a slightly disorganized medicine cabinet with the basics! Especially if you have kids! Band-aids, thermometers and antibiotic creams seem to find their way into your cabinets on a regular basis because let’s face it … kids are accident-prone! Our pets might not suffer from skinned knees and small bumps quite as often but they still manage to find ways to hurt themselves now and then and being prepared with a pet based home emergency kit can really come in handy when those moments present themselves. While a first aid kitRead More →

Pinterest Best Practices

As a blogger, social media can play an important part in increasing your traffic and getting your posts out there for the world to see. Platforms like Instagram and Pinterest can be your best friends, not only in gaining traffic but in securing the commissions and collaborations that are the goal of many bloggers who are trying to monetize their blogs. When you’re new to blogging (or even if you’ve been blogging for a while) the social media platforms can seem confusing to navigate and learn and it’s important to understand the best ways to use each one. By far and away I have foundRead More →

st patricks day candle

I have to admit that I have been wanting to melt down some crayons and attempt to make my own candle for quite a while now! St. Patricks day seemed like the perfect opportunity to give this a try! With fun themes like shamrocks, golden coins and rainbows there are plenty of opportunities to personalize this St Patricks day candle project to fit any decorating theme you might have.

Everyone loves milkshakes! And, St’ Patrick’s Day is the realm of the Shamrock shake. If you love mint and ice cream then this is something you might look forward to year after year. Unfortunately, like all milkshakes, Shamrock shakes are hardly keto. When we choose to follow a healthier way of eating we sometimes leave behind treats we love. Thankfully I have found Keto to be one of the most versatile when it comes to reworking old treats into newer healthier versions. These keto shamrock shakes are no exception! They are not only delicious but super simple to make! Keto Shamrock Shake, St Patrick’s DayRead More →
