The Blogger Community

Fun in the Sun Blogger Swap

One thing that I love about blogging is the blogger community.  I've met so many great women and men through Facebook groups and conferences, and I have to say - they're awesome!  These people genuinely want to help each other out and see each other's blogs grow. You'd think, "They are all doing the same thing.  Wouldn't there be competition?". I thought that was the case - at first.  But it isn't.  There's enough room in the bloggersphere for everyone.  And I love to be a part of it.  I … [Read more...]

What I Took Away From Thrive by Arianna Huffington

What I Took Away from Thrive by Arianna Huffington

I've heard so much about Thrive and am a fan of the Huffington Post, and felt compelled to read Arianna Huffington's newest book.

Courtney Studios - Courtney Ortiz

*I was given a complimentary photo session in exchange for an honest review.  All opinions are 100% my own! Photographs capture memories that last a lifetime.  Ever since I can remember, my father would be behind a camera taking pictures of my sister and I - and there are albums upon albums to prove it.  In today's world filled with technology, it is easy to pick up your smartphone and snap a pic of your kids playing in the sand or at their first school play or concert.  But there is … [Read more...]

Eyebrows Are the Picture Frame of Your Face

EWC the Exfoliate

* I was compensated for this post, but the opinions in this post are 100% my own. There's something about well-defined eyebrows.  I heard someone say that they are the picture frame of your face, and it completely makes sense.  Ever since I was a teenager, my mom would take me to get my eyebrows cleaned up and shaped.  It made such a difference to the appearance of my eyes and face as a whole!  So, when I was asked to become a brand ambassador for European Wax Center, I found it very … [Read more...]
