Happy Thanksgiving Tacos

I hope y'all had a good Thanksgiving with your loved ones. 

My children, when asked if they wanted turkey or ham, chose tacos. 

So I made them tacos. They've been asking for tacos for a while now since I made them the last time. 

I've just lost much confidence in cooking and so I rarely cook dishes as I used to. 

It seems they are satisfied and would like the leftovers for a meal tomorrow. 


What did you have for Thanksgiving as the main dish? Did you do the traditional turkey? 

I'm glad I was with my children and it was peaceful.

This giveaway's Sponsor is:

Nomad is and always will be a company that prioritizes design and quality over everything else. One of the most important aspects to them when designing new products is they use the highest quality, longest-lasting materials available. They design all of their concepts from the ground up, rather than white labeling existing products. From the Horween Leather for their cases and Apple Watch straps, to the rugged Kevlar® construction of their cables, they choose materials that stand out and outlast. It costs more to do so, but the cost isn't as important as the value that doing so creates.

Time With People Are Valuable - Teens With Phones

I am sitting here listening to my daughter laugh with strangers online (tik tok videos), and some friends. I'm glad she's happy. 

We used to spend a lot of time together. I loved our times together even when she was moody but it was time and time is love and bond. 

Then one day I got her a phone. 

I have not seen her much since. I can count the words she says to me now.

This is parenting. 

This is when the heart hurts. 

This is how you learn. Learn that time with people are valuable. 

Do you have teens with phones? What are the changes?

Polished To Perfection - Color Street Polish Strips

I always wanted to do my nails. I just do not have the time to deal with the mess and smell. You'd think I'd want to find the time to do something for myself, but sometimes I find it hard to do. 

I received a gift in the mail from a friend and I did force myself to take the time to unwrap and enjoy this gift. 

It was my first time doing my nails like this and I was sure I was going to mess it up but it turned out great and I really do love the color that I'm wearing and I can't wait to try the other one and also begin to do my nails like this. 

It was really easy, no mess, and no overpowering smell! 

I honestly believe unless something changes, this will be my new love affair with nails: 

Color Strips! 

Have you heard about them? Do you use them? How do you beautify your nails? 

It is really fun and easy and based on Kim's description of these color strips, they come in many different styles and colors and you can use them any way you want! 

 

"I love combining them and creating a mani/pedi that expresses my own unique style. 
The possibilities are limitless! I'm so excited because I know you are going to love them as much as I do once you try them."


Check out her catalog and shop here:

In addition to the stock available on the website Kim also usually have stock on hand and that can be found through this link: 

What are Color Street Polish Strips?
~ Base, color, and top coats of high-quality 100% real nail polish in each strip.
~ Easy, one-step application that is instantly dry and long-lasting - up to 10 days!
~ Brilliant, salon-quality manicures in minutes.
~ Convenient and travel-friendly tool-free application.
~ No drying time, smudges, or streaks.
~ Easily removable with nail polish remover.
~ Flexible - can be gently stretched for a perfect fit!
~ Made in the USA with globally patented technology.


Drop a comment and let me know your experience with these and what you love in her catalog!

Flat Iron Your Hair With Vibrastrait PRO

Vibrastrait PRO Flat Iron

With its unique combination of heat and gentle vibration, the Vibrastrait Oscillating Iron allows hair to glide effortlessly between the tourmaline ceramic plates for smoother, straighter styling with no tugging or pulling. The plates of the iron vibrate at 7,500 vibrations per minute, which ‘shuffles’ hair through the plates, touching more strands with each pass. That means less passes and less damage for faster, healthier results.
