Hi readers, did your September fly by? September 15th marked the beginning of Hispanic Heritage Month in the United States which celebrates the contributions and culture of Hispanic and Latino Americans. It runs until October 15th. So it seemed a great reason for another installment of sharing some great finds from Shop Latinx! Shop Latinx is an online directory featuring independent businesses with Latinx owners. … Continue reading Happy Hispanic Heritage Month!
Howdy followers, are you on all the social medias? I just had the idea of compiling my posts across the various accounts just in case you aren’t on one or the other and are missing out! At first I thought about making it weekly, but I can barely get around to my usual posts. Monthly collections will be easier for me to keep track, allow … Continue reading July 2018
Hallo followers! Sprechen Sie Deutsch? It was Father’s Day recently in the US, and it is ridiculously difficult to shop for my dad. All of those suggested gifts like ties, watches, fishing or electric tools, he’d never use! 😕 So I decided to finally check out Schiller’s Delicatessen and see if I could pick up some things that were unusual, that I couldn’t get anywhere else, or just … Continue reading Alles Gute zum Vatertag!
Hello partners, are your holiday plans falling into place? I’ve been kind of swamped trying to figure out holiday budgets, gifts and other spending, not to mention blogging and everything else. So I kind of just want to take a post to sort of blah out and make sure yall don’t think I’m some kind of big fancy blogger now since my last three posts … Continue reading Rounding Down 2017
This post was sponsored by Uncommon Goods. Hello readers, the year’s last call isn’t rushing you too much, is it?

With all of the extra holiday activities though, it never seems to be … Continue reading Uncommon Goods Gift Guide

My first Empties post! I really don’t buy or use things enough to have them more often, but the bottles were piling up. I hadn’t kept the best usage record, I wasn’t sure if I should write about them, so please pardon any vague review. Learning experience! O’Pro Protein Curl Vitalizer Conditioner & Next Image Curl-n-Wavy Conditioner I’m reviewing these products together because I had a … Continue reading June 2017 Empties
Some time ago I must’ve been Googling easy desserts because I found this recipe for Rice Krispies. My brother loved them, so I thought I’d make some for his birthday. Not only is this treat super simple, but it’s very customizable. I didn’t venture far from the original (since they weren’t bro-tested :P), but I’ll share some neat options. Ingredients 1/4 cup butter 5 cups of … Continue reading Birthday Cereal Bars
Since one of my best pals had her first baby– plus general adulting– it can be tough to get away for some girl time. So it was decided that we should at least have a lunch every month. I got to choose the venue this weekend since it’s my birthday month. And while the girls love a certain chain restaurant, I need variety. I chose … Continue reading Happy Birthday to Me!
Earlier this month I signed up for Ashley and Dean‘s Sweet Progress Summer Box Swap. I’ve never participated in a swap before but felt comfortable enough with this blog to start. I must have imagined something about YouTube in their posts because I decided to make an unboxing video since I haven’t made a video before either. To be honest, I’m very nervous about it? But frick it, … Continue reading Sweet Progress Box Swap!
