Share Memories with Mom Thanks to Mixbook

I love giving personalized creations for Mother's Day. We live in an age where we don't print pictures anymore, but it is something that is still so important to do. Since Mother's Day is coming up and my mother-in-law casually mentioned that she really liked photobooks and that she really doesn't have very many printed pictures of the grandchildren. So I decided to make her one with Mixbook.


When creating a photobook, the thing I loved the most was how many different options there were to create the perfect photobook. Each page can be customized in a way so you can always create a different book each time. Even if you choose one of their start templates and auto add your pictures, you can still customize it in any way you like.

Things to Purge During Spring Cleaning

Spring is finally in the air which makes it the perfect time for spring cleaning! Your list may already include dusting or re-decorating, but have you given thought to what you would be purging? There are so many things we have cluttering up our homes that actually have expiration dates. Many that I didn't know about. Make sure to check out my Spring Cleaning Tips & Tricks, too.

Degustabox: The Foodie Subsciption Box - April 2017 Unboxing

It isn't any surprise how much I love subscription boxes. I have been reviewing this awesome foodie subscription box for a few months now. It has introduced me to so many new products I had never heard of, as well as try products that I had been wanting to.


I love Degustabox. I think it is well worth the money. Basically for only $19.99 ($9.99 with code + free gifts if you keep scrolling), you get a box FILLED with goodies. You can try so many different flavors and many of these products are new to the market. So definitely a great way to try before you buy!

So what was in my box?

Adjusting to a "Big Boy" Bed Comfortably Thanks to Eight Sleep

If you follow me on Instagram, then you know that we moved my son into his "big boy" bed. He was in a small toddler bed that has a mattress with next to no support. I love how his bed came together. The head and foot boards my mother-in-law bought at a yard sale, my sister-in-law gave us the box spring, we bought the bed rails and bed slats off Amazon, my mom bought his bedding for his birthday, and the mattress I was fortunate to get to review from Eight Sleep.


 I have been intrigued about ordering a mattress that comes in a box for a while now. How does it unroll? Is it comfortable? Is it too soft and not firm? Will it actually be big enough for the bed? That last question was actually my first thought when we were unboxing this mattress. The box didn't seem like it was going to be able to hold a mattress that would fit his bed. You can see an unboxing video below of how it expands once opened.
