Easy Websites

Guest written by our friend Katie Callahan

Seriously, I think I have emailed this link for this TV service provider I use to nearly everyone I know. The direct link to the site,, takes you straight to all the most necessary and vital information you would need to know about TV services. Honestly, I did not expect the site to give so much information about cable TV, Internet and phone services. I am a fan of websites and services that bundle things together. I hate when I have to go to multiple websites to figure out all the necessary information. I remember when I applied to graduate school, the fact that all the information about each program was not in one easy to find place drove me insane. Sometimes links we dead. Most of the time the information I needed was not easy to find and some of the information on the school websites contradicted other web pages. I figured it all out, but it was just seriously such a pain. Now, I am relieved when I come across companies that put everything you need to know right upfront and in the easiest place to access.

Skin Care A History

Acne Light Treatment

Face Exercises? Your thinking really!!

The answer to your questions are "but of course". Exercise is good for your entire body. Why would you skip your face?

I watched a TV show years ago. They were doing face exercises. Very smart. You work out the rest of your body to become more tone and fit. The show also talked about your neck. You may look silly doing these but give them a try in the car while your driving. What else do you have to do? NOT talk or text on your phone right!!!! Didn't think so!

Do as the Greeks used to do, I still do, I put some Olive Oil in my hair. A couple drops on the palm of your hand, rub together and smooth over fly aways and ends for a great shine. It's the next best thing if your out of Moroccan Oil.

Skin care is important so don't forget that when your taking care of the rest of your body!

Happy Spring :)

Kim's Wedding

Written by my friend Dong Wood

I logged onto and upgraded our television package. We did it just in time for me to catch the “Kardashian Wedding Special.” I have always followed the gossip magazines and loved the Kardashians. Since we moved, we hadn’t gotten E! I realized how much I was missing watching the show and as soon as I saw that Kim’s wedding was going to be televised, I had to make sure that I got it. I really enjoyed the wedding special. I think that they are a close family, but I never really like Kris Humphries, Kim’s husband. So when I saw on television the other day that Kim had filed for divorce from Kris Humphries after only seventy-two days, I was disappointed. I was also really disappointed that they filed for divorce less than a month after their wedding special aired! I guess sometimes celebrity marriages are doomed and fail, especially if they are on reality television. I am hoping that Khloe and Lamar still last, because I think they are a cute couple and love them. They got married after three weeks!

Moving Is A Hassle

Thanks for the guest post by Eugene Fulton

Moving is such a hassle as everyone knows but it was even worse for us because we’ve got three kids. I love the idea that we’re moving into a great big house with room for everyone but for me it’s more about getting everyone in and settled in the shortest time possible. I love my family but being the matriarch is exhausting at times and between and the movers and the boxes upon boxes I’ve got my hands full. I’m still working part time but my husband’s working 12 hour days wrapping things up on hi project before we move so he hasn’t been able to help all that much. I love him to death but it’s almost like I’d rather have him move out of the way than try to help…he always makes things worse rather than better! I can’t imagine what it’s going to be like waking up in our new homebut I guess it’s only a matter of time until I find it out!

Internet Rate Plans

Guest post by Jewel Cole

So I just recently moved out of the city in to a more rural area so that I can have a taste of, as I call it, the country life. I really loved living in the city and everything it had to offer. Takeout food delivered at whatever time of day or night I wanted it. I was within walking distance to my favorite coffee shop and boutiques. It was time for me to make a change though, so I decided to head out to the country where I can live for a while and clear my head of all the city noise. When I moved out there I found out that my utilities are not the same as they were in the city. For instance I am on well water instead of city water. The other thing that changed for me was my internet connection. It was important for me to really check out the prices and compare and see what I could find that was a good deal. I have to have the internet but I don’t want to pay an arm and a leg for it. I used this link to find out the most recent rate plans for the internet in my area. Check it out.

A'reopostale Sales For Girls Clothing

If you have a Tween or Teen you as a Mother know how hard it is to shop for them these days. Not only are the styles changing as quick as our young Girls change their mind, the styles are a lot more expensive than they used to be.

I am a bargain shopper when it comes to shopping at girl clothing stores. I look for quality as well as a great price. My Daughter is starting to care how she looks and is actually putting outfits together herself the night before school. Shockingly she is starting to get matchy as well. Her outfits are cute and color coordinated.

She does get an allowance and since she pays for some things herself she has became a tad thrifty. When it comes to spending Mom's money thrifty gets left at the door. I was in shock while on a shopping trip and she was spending her own hard earned cash as to how thrifty she was. We were popping in and out of some of her favorite girl clothing stores while she was grabbing items she liked and then would put them back because she thought she could shop around and find them on sale somewhere else.

We have a rule. If it's something she absolutely needs I will buy it for her. If it's something she wants she buys it. Also, if it's something she really wants and doesn't have enough for it we get it and she marks it down in her I.O.U. book that comes out of her allowance.

I am so grateful that my Daughter has learned the value of a dollar!

Happy Shopping :)

Repair Damaged Hair | Yahoo! Health

I just read this article about repairing damaged hair. Winter is upon us and we tend to do more damage during the Winter months than the Summer months. There is some great information on what products you should use and it sounds like they just were not just trying to sell the most expensive either.

Try doing the damage test by putting a piece of hair into a glass of water. I used a 2 cup measuring cup. My hair is colored and highlighted. It didn't sink... didn't sink at all. It just lay there on top of the water. Once I poked it and pushed it under then it did sink well, half of it did. I'm not sure it's the best test. Anyway, after reading this article it makes me want to go condition my hair anyway!

Check out the article here: Repair Damaged Hair | Yahoo! Health

Enjoy ;)
