Outfit: Closet Must-Haves with Walmart

I'm Wearing: George ponte jacket | Jordache high rise super skinny jeans (aff) I can't lie to you...I'm a bit weary of winter. But this is the way it always happens, right? We wait for summer to turn into fall, then to winter so we can pull out our fancy boots and layers. Then a few months in, we're longing [...]

Outfits: Three of a (Green) Kind + a LNBF Giveaway

I have spent a lot of time lamenting the lack of clothing options for women like me. Women who care for the Earth and care about how and where our clothes were made, but who also want to look fabulous and happen to be plus sized. Thankfully, that is beginning to change, and I love discovering new brands that cater [...]

My Walmart Story: They Really Do Save Us Money

Well, the answer to that is simple: Because Walmart really is a big part of my life, and was even before I became a Walmart [...]

Chinese New Year DIY: Year of the Sheep Headband

One of the things my husband and I are trying to get better at doing is exposing our girls to other cultures and their traditions, because we want them to appreciate that customs and traditions are what make people special and amazing.

Recipe: Creamy Garlic Herb Mashed Potatoes

I confess: I love potatoes. Like, I'd give them a Valentine's Day present and take them out to dinner if I could. But...I've never been a big fan of mashed potatoes. It's definitely not about taste, but more about texture. I just can't get down with potatoes that aren't mashed just right. And it can be hard to do it [...]

Baby Footprint DIY Valentine’s Cards

These days, baby Juliza is very lovey dovey. She loves to randomly walk up to my hubby and I and hug our legs, or bellies, or necks, or whatever is in reach at the moment. She loves giving kisses too, though we have to work on her technique. So when Walmart challenged me to share a Valentine's Day craft project, [...]

I’ve Been Bitten by the Scrapbooking Bug

I like to think of myself as a connoisseur of all things creative. I like making something out of nothing, and when I see something I like, chances are I'll try to make it before I decide to buy it. But scrapbooking is one of those things I'd just never tried. I guess I'm more into digital "scrapbooking", thanks to Facebook, [...]

Stuntin’ in Walmart Activewear

To call my daughter active would be a severe understatement. If she's not doing gymnastics, she's thinking about doing gymnastics. All day. Every day. It's been this way for almost 2 years. She spent the last year teaching herself lots of moves since she wasn't taking classes for a while, but she's getting ready to start formal training again, and [...]
