Dirty pillows? There’s an app for that! #whirlpoolmoms

So I thought I’d play around with the My Cycles app on our Whirlpool Duet washer. Up until now, we haven’t really needed to do so. We had some pillows that were in need of a deep cleaning. I couldn’t dare put clean pillow cases on seasoned (nicely put) pillows, so it was time forContinue Reading

Small Style: Every Boy Wants To Be A Superhero

So Greg and I picked out Halloween costumes for Jayden in September; a Chicago Bears football costume, and a pirate costume. Since I’m usually in charge of his costumes, I let Greg take over. He ordered the Chicago Bears costume from an online retailer that shall remain nameless. Days and days would go by withContinue Reading

Gluten-free Vanilla Nutmeg Cupcakes for Halloween and Fall

A closeup of my creative confections. Earlier this month, Wilton sent me a big ol’ box of goodies to create some treats for Halloween and Fall.

Nails to the Yeah!: A Mani Pedi Meme

As a mother (aka busy woman on-the-go), I know how hard it is sometimes to stay on top of a beauty routine. I mean I don’t sweat the small stuff. My hair is pretty low maintenance and I’m pretty lax when it comes to re-twisting. I’ll often go every other wash without doing so. ButContinue Reading

Sophistishe’s gone “October”. Refresh if you don’t see the subtle changes in the header, background, and bio box in the sidebar :). I added a few details throughout for Halloween and a pink ribbon background to show my support for Breast Cancer Awareness Month. It feels good to have time to actually do those things.Continue Reading

One Love: An Interview with Cedella Marley

One Love: An Interview with Cedella Marley

I had the opportunity to interview Bob Marley’s Daughter, Cedella Marley, which was AWESOME by the way! The interview was in conjunction with helping her promote her new children’s book, One Love. The heartwarming and beautifully illustrated picture book tells of a young girl and her parents inspiring neighbors to restore a park in theirContinue Reading

Walmart’s Bringing (Christmas) Layaway Back! Yeah!

Starting October 17th, Christmas Layaway will be available at Walmart stores!!! I for one am super excited about this because this gives us a chance to reserve the items that we want before the Holiday rush whisks them all away. We don’t do credit cards so this gives us a chance to tend to ourContinue Reading

Oscar and Golden Globe winning film, “The Lion King“, is now available on Blu-ray. Yes you read right. A movie so classic has been remastered to an HD crisp delight. Simba, Mufasa, Nala, Timon and Pumbaa are back. Better than EVAR in a two-disc Diamond Edition Blu-ray Combo pack. Ahhh. Memories. I remember singing SingContinue Reading

So Halloween is one of my favorite holidays. And I admit, I’m using Jayden as an excuse to relive my childhood, only like 10x’s better, lol. I really like decorating our home according to season.

I’m a sucker for autumn decor.

My Halloween finds under $32 I’m a sucker for autumn decor, as if you couldn’t tell.

So without further ado, let’s take a tour shall we? InContinue Reading
