Moms Don't Get Sick Days: Why I Chose to Ask an Expert Today!

Today's conversation is sponsored by Samsung via MomTrends.

Moms can't be sick, it's an unspoken rule. But if you're feeling under the weather, check out how you can EASILY and QUICKLY be seen by a medical professional from the comfort of your own couch...

It was bound to happen... and for the first time since I had D, it happened today.

http://Bit.ly/samsunghealth

Y'all... Today, I woke up with a sore throat, a scratchy feeling in my ears, a slight fever, and an overall BLAH feeling. Oh, freaking no. My life is busy, as is, there's no time for being sick. Moms don't get sick days! It's just like an unspoken rule or something, we literally can not be sick.

Moms can't be sick, it's an unspoken rule. But if you're feeling under the weather, check out how you can EASILY and QUICKLY be seen by a medical professional from the comfort of your own couch...

I wasn't sure what I was going to do... but I knew I had to act fast. I'm sure you can relate, mom life doesn't leave much time for contemplating decisions. With a toddler bouncing around in bed with me and growling like a wild animal, I knew it was time to start the day... whether or not I felt up to it or not. So I made my plan and executed it, almost flawlessly, may I add.


http://Bit.ly/samsunghealth

The first thing I did was gargle with salt water and make myself a cup of honey-lemon tea.

http://Bit.ly/samsunghealth

Next, I knew I had to see a doctor, but wasn't sure how I was going to swing that with Miss Crazy Pants in tow. Then I remembered, I can just use my phone! Samsung Health makes it all easy as pie.

http://Bit.ly/samsunghealth

So...instead of trying to get myself and D dressed & put together for an in-person Doctor's visit, I was able to consult with a qualified physician from the comfort of my couch using Ask an Expert on my Samsung S6 Edge. I can't even begin to tell you what a relief this was.

http://Bit.ly/samsunghealth

I didn't have to worry about D catching something while waiting for me to be seen at a local urgent care, because we were literally able to watch her shows while I waited to be "seen" by the doctor.

http://Bit.ly/samsunghealth

I love how convenient Asking an Expert was, I literally just pressed a few buttons, chose who I would see, and then waited a few minutes until it was time... and of course, D had to say hello and help me discuss my symptoms.

http://Bit.ly/samsunghealth

Then... He told me to take it easy, get some rest, and make sure I'm getting plenty of Vitamin C. HA! And while I wish I could do all of that, it simply isn't going to be happening any time soon, at least while I have D in my care. So I amped up the vitamin C and we did our very best to take it easy today, which still included lots of time playing and chasing my tiny boss around the house.

http://Bit.ly/samsunghealth

While I'm not feeling a hundred percent myself yet, I think I'm on the road to recovery and I'm thankful I was able to Ask an Expert and confirm it was just a common cold without even having to leave my house.

http://Bit.ly/samsunghealth

Are you feeling a little under the weather or maybe your sweet pea is breaking out in a rash? If you're a Samsung user, here's some good news (even though I'm sure you're stressing):  you can see a doctor easily, just like I did! PLUS, I have a discount code you can use, save $10 when you use the code 'SAMSUNG24'! But just so ya know, this expires 3/31/18.

Keep the Music Going with Google Chromecast Audio

The reviewer has been compensated in the form of a Best Buy Gift Card and/or received the product/service at a reduced price or for free.

http://bby.me/bhxd

Lately I've been wanting to do a little more dancing, a little more tapping of my foot to the beat, a little bit more singing along with the music... maybe it's because I'm just so blissfully happy most days or maybe it's because it makes Delainey light up and grin bigger than anything. Either way, jamming out to The Lumineers while I'm organizing her room then heading out to rest on the hammock listening to classics like The Beatles, we like having music with us. Plus, I just think it's the coolest we've already bonded over music and she can't even speak yet... but I'm kind of biased because I think every thing she does is the coolest.


Learn how we keep the music flowing through our house and how you can easily and inexpensively do the same thanks to Google Chromecast Audio!

Speaking of the coolest, I'm sharing the coolest new gadget in our home with you today. It's our new way of jamming. Instead of hauling our speakers, phone, and/or stereo system around the house, we've upgraded our music listening  in our home with the Google Chromecast Audio.

Learn how we keep the music flowing through our house and how you can easily and inexpensively do the same thanks to Google Chromecast Audio!

It's a bit like having a stereo system installed everywhere in your house, all connected to your phone. So simple to connect, just one little wire plugged into your speaker, and you're jamming.

Learn how we keep the music flowing through our house and how you can easily and inexpensively do the same thanks to Google Chromecast Audio!

The sound quality is so much better than bluetooth too. I can use my speaker when I'm inside with D and have it connected to my husband's phone, even if he's all the way in the backyard doing yard work. It all works over our wi-fi so it's great quality and isn't interrupted when we step out of the room, which is just what we need since we're running from room to room trying to entertain our little princess.

http://bby.me/bhxd



The best part about the Chromecast Audio though, is the room-to-room connect-ability it offers. I love that I can have one of our Chromecasts in D's room and the other in the living room and our house sounds like a concert is bellowing through it. The sound is so clean and crisp, it's glorious and I love that I can use any speaker to connect! That means each room in my house will eventually have it's own little Chromecast and speaker, because why not? Every room needs to be ready to rock!


http://bby.me/bhxd


With that said, what do you think of the Chromecast Audio? What feature of the Chromecast Audio do you find the most intriguing? Also, I'm curious, which app will you start using with your new "sound system" first? I'm already a huge fan of Pandora but I may check out Google Play Music, I've heard great things! I can't wait to hear what you say!

How to Create a Website Quickly and Easily using GoDaddy GoCentral!

A promotional item was provided to me for today’s discussion. The host for this event is Still Blonde after all these Years.


If you follow me on social media, you may have noticed I have a little bit of a shopping problem for Delainey. I am absolutely obsessed with cute clothes for the teeny tiny little girl, especially handmade clothes. I guess my hubby caught on to my obsession and instead of giving me cash to purchase more clothes for Valentine's Day, he bought me a sewing machine to start making her clothes... and that, my friends, is true love, at least in this crafty girl's mind.

http://bit.ly/GoDaddyGoCentral


With that said, I'm hoping to not only make clothes for Delainey, I aspire to open a little handmade boutique once all is said and done. I'm super excited about the possibilities and since I'm so keen on all things online boutique related, I obviously wanted to look into how easy it would be to start operating my own little business online. That's where GoDaddy GoCentral Website Builder comes into the picture...


http://bit.ly/GoDaddyGoCentral


This handy little GoDaddy tool is the easiest way to get a little boutique up and running, in my opinion. I'm still working on the details of my actual business, like uhhh, what am I going to sew and what will the real name of the business be officially...? But luckily, I know how I'm going to build the best boutique website possible and instead of keeping my little secret on how I was able to accomplish all to myself, I just had to share it with you!

http://bit.ly/GoDaddyGoCentral

Are you wanting to open your own online boutique? Maybe you are wanting to start selling those clay figurines you began crafting in 2016... or those pillows you sewed together for a friend, those could become a business too - The possibilities are as endless as your creativity. We'll go ahead and do a little step by step showing you how you can build a business page using GoCentral website builder to make the whole process easier, because I know sometimes things get a little confusing! But go ahead and snag your free trial NOW before the offer expires on April 11th!

Click here to find out which website builder will work best for you. I went with the Business page because I plan on using it for my possible business. If you're wanting to go more with a family update page, the personal page would be a breeze for you... but really, all of the GoDaddy templates are easy to use!

With that said, let's start walking you through the fun of opening our little online boutique... I guess time will tell what I'll be carrying in-stores, but our website will certainly look sweet!

You'll go here and be sure to score your free trial!

http://bit.ly/GoDaddyfreetrial



Next, choose a website design from all of the beautiful options.

http://bit.ly/GoDaddyGoCentral



Once you choose your design, take some time to play with it. Customizing colors, fonts, photos, directions of wording, etc. I ended up adding in all kinds of detail photos, editing my contact information, rewording the header, etc. The steps for doing this are super easy, you really just click on the item and the website builder will walk you through it, even mentioning when you should resize a photo for better quality! I mean... could it get any easier than that?

http://bit.ly/GoDaddyGoCentral

While I'm no internet guru, I do feel like I've created an amazing little boutique website... and the best part is? I did it in under an hour and I can't wait to share items in my store, when that day comes. I was able to add tabs, insert a little listing for my store, personalize almost the entire site, optimize my SEO, and so much more and it was so easy!

http://bit.ly/GoDaddyGoCentral




I will say, I do know a little HTML and was expecting to have to bring out the techy brain to be able to create something this beautiful, but I didn't have to get techy at all - I made this entire website by just clicking around and following instructions... and THAT is amazing.

http://bit.ly/GoDaddyGoCentral

For now my little boutique is a work in progress, a dream, but soon enough it will become my little boutique and all I have to do is hit publish to make that a reality!

http://bit.ly/GoDaddyGoCentral

It's that easy. So tell me, what kind of website will you use GoDaddy GoCentral Website Builder to create? I think my blog may be getting a make over soon as well and you better believe I'll be turning to GoDaddy to rebuild our page when I'm ready! Are you ready to take the next step?

The Hair Dryer Has Been Reinvented and YOU Will Love It!

A hair dryer is just a hair dryer, or so you thought. I felt the same way, until I had this powerful little hair tool in my hand. The game has changed, styling your hair just got a little easier, and we have Dyson to thank. Find out more on the blog...

The Dyson Supersonic hair dryer has reinvented the standard hair dryer with a unique digital motor for fast and balanced drying. It even has a thermistor that helps protect your hair from heat damage and a monitor that checks the temperature every 20 seconds, keeping your hair safe and beautiful! Plus, this beauty has three magnetic styling attachments- making it easier to style every type of hair. This is the hair dryer reinvented and it's definitely my new favorite beauty accessory.

As a new mom, just gaining a second of freedom here or there while my baby plays with a toy, I can say I didn't use to have the time to devote to styling my hair perfectly every morning. Now with my Dyson Supersonic hair dryer and it's ultra-fast drying capabilities, I'm ready to go when Delainey is ready to play.

Another reason this dryer is mama friendly? It's acoustically tuned. While that sounds like it may play music well, that isn't the case. The powerful motor is actually tuned to produce one inaudible frequency and it's enveloped by a vibration reduction system, making this dryer quiet enough to not wake the baby when you just need to feel clean after a long day. I love the fact that I'm able to use this dryer without having to worry about waking the tiny little monster--that makes getting ready for our first date night out since having her a more reasonable idea.

Whether your using the highest or lowest of the three speeds this hair dryer offers or boosting it to the highest of the four heat levels, you'll really appreciate how this dryer feels like it was made for you... helping to shape your hair into the perfect style, quickly and reliably. I know I love my new Dyson Supersonic hair dryer and I think you will too.




Microsoft Surface Pro: the Perfect Tablet for a Blogger on the Go + Huge Savings & Giveaway



http://bit.ly/2fssCAR

As a blogger I'm always working whenever I get a chance, especially now that Delainey is in the picture. Whether I'm trying to respond to emails while I'm at an appointment for Delainey or I'm writing a random post while we are in the car running errands, it literally never stops. The second she falls asleep I do my best to get to work and spend hours late at night working on projects, don't get me wrong... I'm so lucky that I get to do what I love and share everything I find beautiful with you, but sometimes it gets a little difficult to find the time to get it all finished, especially because lately I've been doing most of my work mobile.

http://bit.ly/2fGGoO5



Lugging my laptop around has worked out okay and occasionally using my phone to get work finished has proved satisfactory, but this year I've decided to treat myself and I've added a Microsoft Surface Pro to my Christmas list of things to buy for myself.

Why a Surface Pro? It's lightweight, portable, and lightening-fast... everything a blogging gal could ever need! I love that I can use it as a tablet when I'm out and then when I come home it can convert into a laptop, offering the best of both worlds. So if you are trying to decide what you want for Christmas this year and you are seeking some flexibility with your technology, maybe a Surface Pro should be on the top of your list as well or if you want to treat yourself click here and save $150 on Microsoft Surface Pro 4 i5 128GB (this offer is only good through 12/24)!

Learn About the App: IFTTT & How It Can Simplify Your Life!


Simplify your life with an app? It's totally possible if you're ready to try IFTTT! Get the details on this app and start letting your phone help you lead a better life.


As a mama, I've learned that if I want to get anything accomplished I need to find some shortcuts. Instead of trying to speed home every afternoon or cutting a diaper change short, I've decided to try and make things I do anyways a little simpler with "IFTTT" or "If this, then that" - the app.

While initially setting up my applets took a little bit of time, now I don't have to take 3 actions to share my twitter photos on Instagram, because the app does that for me.

IFTTT lets you do more with the services you love and applets within the app help you bring together services you love. From pairing your Insta with your Twitter to pairing your phones GPS with your lighting system, IFTTT has so many applets that can help you. So, with that said, here's some ways you should be using IFTTT in your life.

1. Automatically wish your friends a Happy Birthday on Facebook - Ever felt like a total jerk because you ignored the notification for a buddy's birthday and never took a minute to write on their wall? Use IFTTT and you'll never have that happen again. Just sign up to send well wishes and the applet will do it for you!

2. Share Instagram photos to Twitter as a photo (not a link) - THIS is literally the reason why I originally started using IFTTT. It may seem lazy but it's nice, as a "momtog", to share photos on Instagram and have them share directly to my most beloved social media platform, twitter. If you love both Insta and Twitter as much as I do, then this is a useful applet for you.

3. Be your own weather person, know when it's going to pour - Don't fret about whether it'll rain or not tomorrow... IFTTT will let you know. Just sign up for a notification and you'll always know if it's going to rain!

4. No worries when dealing with photo storage - Using google drive, back up your Android photos and never worry about having to transfer photos to an external or deleting extras. As a mama with a passion for photographing her baby, this was a huge reason I fell in love with IFTTT.

5. Hit the lights without lifting a finger - If you have the Hue system, which I talk about here, then you have to check out the IFTTT applets that sync up with the lights! You can change your lights to blue lights when it's raining, have your lights automatically turn off when you leave home, press a button to make hue lights color loop and more. I'm obsessed with playing with my lights and IFTTT has made them even cooler!

6. Keep track of everything with Trello - Whether you've heard of Trello before or not, now is the time to start using this app and paired with IFTTT, you'll never forget anything again! I love using this app to keep track of upcoming assignments, appointments, and fun stuff too. The coolest part is I can label an email with a specific label and IFTTT will create a card in Trello for that event. Making time for everything just got a little easier.

Creatives, You CAN find Inspiration ANYWHERE!

Finding inspiration for my art is sometimes a process, from looking at other creative influencers artistic talents and finding bits and pieces of their style to incorporate into my own, to traveling and seeing unique sights that hold beauty and history, to even just looking up in the most mundane of places and finding beauty; like this stunning piece of art work found in a hospital back in my home town. It's a process, an interesting one, and one that I think will forever be a part of my life.

Finding inspiration for art, creative projects, and life in general is a process, check out how you can find inspiration anywhere!

Lately I've been feeling more creative and wanting to find true inspiration, a muse, if you will. Then I saw the new Motorola Moto X phones designed by Jonathan Adler and I felt it...  If you're a creative person, you know the feeling I speak of, a true sense of comfort and a drive to make something that instant. I suppose you could even say it's almost a euphoric experience when you find your muse.

Finding inspiration for art, creative projects, and life in general is a process, check out how you can find inspiration anywhere!

With 32GB of storage, silver accents, a 21MP camera, and all the standard Moto X Pure Edition features, these gorgeous phones are all the rage and exactly what I needed to inspire me!

Finding inspiration for art, creative projects, and life in general is a process, check out how you can find inspiration anywhere!

So what did these phones inspire me to create? I made this gorgeous little painting based on the Half Circle Back Moto X; it's stunning and so perfectly simple - the way I envisioned my painting. So I created this little bed of "stone rocks" to share my version of something beautiful with you.
Finding inspiration for art, creative projects, and life in general is a process, check out how you can find inspiration anywhere!
