I was never the best at ironing clothes, and after ruining a few nice blouses, I avoided it. I couldn't believe it took me as long as it did to purchase a hand-held garment steamer. I rarely throw my nice outfits in the dryer, so my clothes are usually pretty wrinkly. Thankfully, my PurSteam…

I'm currently addicted to word-search puzzles. They are a great way to unwind at the end of the day. They allow my brain to shut down all the noise of the day and focus only on letters. When I finish my puzzle, it's easier to fall asleep.

I recently received a sample of Bye Bye Under Eye Full Coverage Anti-Aging Waterproof Concealer by IT Cosmetics in a beauty products subscription service. Like most women, I want to reduce any signs of aging or skin imperfections, but I honestly had never found anything which truly did the j…

March is one of my favorite months, not just because my daughter was born on the 2nd, or that it's a holiday for my family (lots of Irish here) on the 17th, but there is something special about the feel of spring. I love to take walks in my hometown of Hiawatha, Kansas, down around the squar…
