Swim In to #CyberMonday {plus a #HolidayGiftGuide}

Being an athlete is no stranger to me. Volleyball, basketball, track and field and swimming… Yes, four sports in high school. I made the varsity squad in each sport. Man, why didn’t I keep this up? Why didn’t keep working out? Starting over really sucks. But I digress. Those long after school practices were some...

Spinning Plates

Blog life is a journey. From the outside, a blogger wakes up, dribbles a few words onto the page and pushes that button “Publish”, then goes about their business.

The Perfect Party Glass – Moderna by Ozeri {Review}

3 Steps to Effective Crowdfunding

Over the summer, my friend and I attempted to fund a summer camp through crowdfunding. It was an epic fail. I don’t say that to discourage you in your desires, but I say that to say that I’ve given it a try. We didn’t do it right, we didn’t use our resources or our friends...

Nineteen
