Let’s see what you can do in Canva that you might not be aware of yet.

It’s early March, and I can’t think of wearing my winter boots again this season, and “husband” has ditched his long-underwear. I wanted to do a fun post about Amazon Must-Haves for Spring and the things I’m buying or…want to buy. Why wait? I admit it’s a gutsy thing to do, but I’ve officially declared winter over! Never mind that snow-storm we’re expecting tomorrow. HAPPY DANCE!

Warby Parker – Affordable, Prescription Eyeglasses Online: FREE Home-Try-On

My three pair of sunglasses and regular bio-focal glasses are all from Warby Parker.

Have you been struggling to come up with a system to track Pinterest Pins you post on your group boards? I’ve developed a very easy way. I’ve heard others describe something similar, but I don’t want to flip through a notebook with a page devoted to each of my Pinterest groups and I don’t like my handwriting. A spreadsheet wasn’t working for me either. It was all too difficult for me to navigate so I came up with my own tracking method. read more

The Bad Breath Remedy That Really, Really Works

The Bad Breath Remedy That Really, Really Works

Smart Mouth mouthwash - remedy and cure for bad breath

 

I’ve used this product for 20+ years and I love recommending it. When I was a child I had not just “bad breath” but dragon breath. It was the worst! It lasted through my teens and early 20’s and then I found what worked and it’s been great ever since. With Smart Mouth’s system of two oral rinses my husband tells me my breath smells like nothing. It’s such a wonderful relief. Even first thing in the morning it’s really ok and nothing I ever worry about. It’s the bad breath remedy I love to recommend because it truly saved me from something so embarrassing and defeating.
