Start a Business—I Did!

This post may contain affiliate links. All opinions expressed are our own. Grow Your Business with Shopify Tools When I first decided that I wanted to be a small business owner I was excited and overwhelmed all at the same time. I wanted to succeed, however I had no idea where to start. I actually didn't start with Shopify right away and I struggled to keep track of inventory and keep customers coming back. I had an okay website that I had built myself, however it wasn't as professional or appealing as I had liked. I had big dreams, but a small budget. It wasn't until I switched over to Shopify (after a friend of mine had showed me her stats vs mine---they blew mine out of the water) that I really started to do well with my business. You can check out my online clothing boutique here--->>> The Paisley Hanger Boutique. Building your own ecommerce business is no easy task. From choosing a product, evaluating viability and sourcing, to building, launching and growing sales. … [Read more...]

Bye Bye Stink w/ Downy Fabric Conditioner #ProtectClothesYouLove

This is a sponsored post for SheSpeaks/P&G. All opinions expressed are our own. Okay, I'm going to come clean and let you all in on a little secret. Are you ready? Boys sometimes stink. Yes, there you have it. I know, I know, girls sometimes stink too, but since I'm raising my own little tribe of boys I can only speak for boys, and when they get to be teenagers---watch out Moms! So, what do I do to keep the stink at bay? I use things that smell good---like fabric softener. I've tried several fabric softeners over the years and Downy has always been my favorite. There's just something about clean sheets fresh out of the laundry with that nice clean smell that can really give you a good night sleep. I think my boys agree! You can purchase Downy Fabric Conditioner at Walmart. I feel like it's important that we protect the clothes we love. As a matter of fact, since I have all boys I'm hoping to hand down as much of the clothing as I can. Given all I'm doing to protect my … [Read more...]

We received free product to facilitate this review. All opinions express are our own. This summer I was really hoping to find some fun outdoor play items for my boys.

Carry Baby Close W/ Wrapy Baby Sling

We received the Wrapy Baby Sling product to facilitate this review. All opinions expressed are our own. Well, most of you know that my baby days are long past, however some of my siblings are just getting started, and that's pretty exciting to me! We were sent a Wrapy baby carrier to test out, and I couldn't wait to gift it to my little sister and her new baby boy! What is Wrapy Baby Sling? Wrapy is a baby sling that was created by a family company. The owners of the company have children of their own and they know what it is like to want to keep your children safe and secure at all times, especially in the early months right after baby is born. They searched different baby products on the market, sorted what they liked and disliked and came up with their new product, Wrapy. Wrapy is 95% Cotton and 5% Spandex, so it's super comfortable and easy to wear. It is a one size fits all, so no need to guess on sizing and hope it works. It is machine washable and you can even throw it … [Read more...]

Don’t Forget to Take Your Vitamins!

We received free product to review. All opinions expressed are our own. I try my hardest to take in all of the right vitamins and the right foods needed to stay healthy (and keep my energy up), but it's not always easy, especially once you become a parent. Often times I'm so busy making sure everyone else is taken care of that I forget to take care of myself. I'm sure I'm not alone. That's why I love Nature's Garden Daily Multivitamin from RMB Naturals. It's a proprietary blend of over 40 premium whole fruits and greens, plus minerals to provide complete whole food nutrition for men and women. The recommended dosage is 3 tablets a day. The green tea extract that is included gives you a bit of an energy boost (I totally needed that!) without making you feel jittery or anything. I feel so much better when I'm taking my multivitamin. I feel like I don't get sick near as much, and when I do happen to get sick it seems to be gone much sooner than others. I also feel like I have so … [Read more...]
