How to Make Easy DIY Gifts for the Holidays

This is a Sponsored Post for Color It Candy., however, all opinions are my own. This year, it feels like the Holidays have crept up way too fast.

And now we have two weeks until Christmas and the kids will be out of school. The pressure is on. At this point, it's all about finding gifts. Looking for gifts can be fun but it can also be frustrating if you don't know the person your buying for. I find it rewarding to make gifts for people. It's more personal and I love creating …

How to Make the Best Black Forest Cake for the Holidays

This post was sponsored by AMERICAN HERITAGE® Chocolate as part of an Influencer Campaign for Influence Central and all opinions expressed in my post are my own.

How to Make the Best Keto Low-Carb Vanilla Hot Cocoa

This is a Sponsored Post for Torani, however, all opinions are my own. This is my favorite time of year.  I love the smell of Holiday cheer. However, I don't like the temptation all around me with all the sugary, fattening treats including Holiday drinks.  I try to practice a low carb diet and eat mostly from a Keto approved menu , but I have to be brutally honest; this is the most difficult time of the year for me.  There is so much temptation! I've got a big sweet tooth that gets me in trouble. There's nothing worse that feeling guilty after eating something full of sugar and carbs.  But this year I've decided that I am going guilt free with Torani Sugar Free Syrups.  I'm going …

5 Reasons to Fly Business Class on Finnair

Thanks so much to Finnair and Visit Finland for hosting this trip. All opinions are 100% my own. Business class on a long-distance, international flight is a luxury I had never experienced until I flew with Finnair. It was divine. From being greeted with a cozy space, my personal slippers, pillow and comforter to a picking up a beautiful menu .... I truly felt pampered. If you have a chance to fly Business Class on Finnair you will find that it isn't just luxury traveling, it's an experience. I went with my girls from the Tortuga Travel Tribe, an elite group of travel writers. We love traveling together! There was so much overhead space. That spot is where you will find a wonderful, …

A Vacation for Every Member of the Family

Families enjoy Holland America’s upscale, mid-sized ships ranging from 1,258 to 2,666 guests -- smaller than many megaships but with plenty of onboard entertainment.

7 Reasons to Get LASIK Eye Surgery

This is a Sponsored Post for Barnet Dulaney Perkins, however, all opinions are 100% my own.  When I was nine, I got my first pair of prescription eyeglasses.  I remember thinking to myself that I was now in the "4 eyes" club. I was teased.  I really did not like wearing glasses and within a couple of years I started using contact lenses, even though I was probably too young for them. As you probably know, there are a couple of steps to cleaning contact lenses. I knew them, but as a young kid I would always forget the second step and end up burning my eye balls. This earned me a few trips to the ER to get my eyes flushed and... let's just say that …
