Now, I’m not a doctor, but I do have Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS). And those who know me, know that I believe PCOS isn’t as easily recognized nor diagnosed as other conditions because of its ambiguous nature. This post is to help those who have been diagnosed with PCOS manage it.

Review | Fall Fête Birchbox!

IMG_0060I don’t know about you, but I always love drooling over the limited edition Birchboxes. Until recently, I hadn’t taken the plunge and gotten one. But as soon as I saw their Fall Fête box, I fell in love. I’m realllllllly into playing hostess – in fact, I’m starting to daydream about Thanksgiving already – so this box has my name all over it. Luckily, I had been hoarding some Birchbox points, so when I got an email offering $10 off a purchase of $50+, I knew it was time to cash in! Here’s a closer look at all of the goodies… Continue reading

What Do Beer Kegs & Diapers Have In Common?

20140821_121020

Partying. Maybe the only time you’ve partied with a diaper was when you dressed up like a baby that one Halloween, but I can give you another way that beer and diapers go together wonderfully!

Ever heard of a diaper party? No, you don’t have to show up in a diaper. And its not for babies either. Although, it is a party for expecting parents. Diaper parties are traditionally thrown for the dad, like a male version of a baby shower. However, inviting both sexes means more gifts… so I suggest keeping the genders together (for both occasions). Guests arrive with diapers and wipes and are thanked with free beer! Continue reading

My co-bloggers and I have decided to do this fancy, “What’s in my bag?” post for all of you. I feel so incredibly vulnerable right now. You’re going to know the REAL me. So, scared.

Anyway, my current bag is a (probably fake) Michael Kors I got in Mexico with the lovely JoAnna, Cassie, and our friend Ryan this past May. Here’s what’s in it: Continue reading

Cassie, Ariel, & JoAnna (circa 2007)

We’re three best-friend writers with strong opinions and craft-tastic qualities. We met sometime between the years of 1999 and 2002, but who can remember that far back? Right? Yeah. Anyway, we met in our hometown, Pittsfield, Maine, and haven’t looked back since. Continue reading
