PERK Visors: Automotive Air Fresheners

PERK Giveaway2

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of PERK for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine. What do you like your car to smell like? Yes, I know, it's kind of an odd question to start out a blog post with, but last year I shared what I turned to when my car needed a little perk up. This year, I'm back again with a new product from PERK... visor wraps. The brand new, PERK Visor Wrap is the second automotive air freshener featuring PERK's patent-pending StediScent™ technology, which delivers consistent, high-quality fragrance for up to 30 days! I'm actually quite surprised that this is the first Visor Wrap I've ever seen - it's one of those ideas that you see and say "Why didn't I think of that?!" because it really brings freshness to a new level in your car... it's freshness elevated! A car's sun visor offers an … [Read more...]

5 Tips for Blending Pet Families

Blending Pet Families

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone.  #1StopPetShop #CollectiveBias Over the past few months, I've shared that we moved into a new house and if you follow me on instagram, you've even seen glimpses of our new old house, built in 1920! I have big plans to show you all around the house, as soon as we get fully settled [by the way do you ever get fully settled after a big move?!]. Moving is a big change in anyone's lives, but we've been experiencing a couple of big lifestyle changes along with the regular stresses of moving. Not only did my family of four move into the new house, my parents have moved in with us! We were already living in the same town, but decided to sell both of our houses and move in together to share expenses and help my parents to be able to … [Read more...]

ReUse CLASSICO® Pasta Sauce Jars with reCAP®

Mason Jar Soap Dispenser

I've partnered with CLASSICO® and reCAP® to share how to reuse pasta sauce jars and received product, coupons, premium items and reader giveaway coupons as a part of my participation. All opinions given here are fully my own. #CLASSICOMakeItYourOwn   Last week I received a beautiful shipment of products that had me so excited to spend a little time in the kitchen. We're huge fans of CLASSICO pasta sauce already, but I was excited to see some great new products, and especially recipe cards, in our CLASSICO box. In the box was also a few packages from reCAP. I almost always reuse our pasta sauce jars and mason jars, but sometimes I don't feel like I'm really utilizing them like I could. Sure, you can screw the lid back on some jars, but I knew there had to be a better option out there - there is and it's reCAP, but more on … [Read more...]

Find Out Sooner – Pregnancy Testing with First Response


I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for First Response. I received product samples as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation. It seems like forever ago when I couldn't see my toes... when I stood with my hands on my lower back... when I felt the flutters in my belly that told me there was a sweet baby girl growing inside. It feels like even longer ago when it was the day that I wondered "Is there really a chance that I'm pregnant?!?" I remember going to the store and buying a box of pregnancy tests and having to wait to test before I found out if I was pregnant with my first baby. We were trying so I was hopeful, but didn't know until my missed period. I have the most vivid memory of seeing that positive test and being SO excited with Rob - we were just ecstatic to be … [Read more...]
