Free Jamberry Nail Shields!

A friend just shared this deal with me and I know that I have a lot of friends and readers that will appreciate me passing it on prior to my next deals and steals roundup, and before it expires. Right now, you can score some free decorative nail shields, like the popular Sally Hansen nails, from Jamberry Nails. 

A set costs $15, but the 50% deal makes them $7.50 and there is a ten dollar credit to the site for new members. You will have to enter your credit card information to verify shipping and billing, but it won't be charged, and if you just order the one set its free with credit remaining (you can order up to 2 sets).  P.S. I just checked my card and there is no transaction.

Budget Friendly Eco-Beauty: Cooling Cucumber Toner Recipe

I am fortunate enough that I have to do very little in the way of skin care in order to keep my skin looking and feeling great. Seriously, if I do much more than wash with a gentle cleanser I risk throwing off the perfect balance that my skin seems to naturally have. But, I have noticed that a gentle toner doesn't hurt and it really does help when I need a quick skin perk. 

I have been through many a bottle of toner, and I try to only use natural and/or organic, but honestly, I have more unused bottles of toner sitting under the sink than I care to admit to.

Planning a Road Trip to Florida

The girls and I are headed to Florida, hopefully! I know I have not talked about it much, but with dad's surgeries and my grandfather's failing health we have had to postpone everything-- and I mean everything. However, because we want to see a shuttle launch and the final shuttle launch is scheduled for July, we have to go now or miss it.  Seriously, it has been gloom and doom for months now, with the reality of and expected deaths of both family members, so while it is semi-calm I want to be able to nab a few minutes of fun with the twins.

Right now my mom is prepped for a last minute flight out or road trip to Texas.

FitFlops For Women- The Perfect Summer Fitness Accessory

When FitFlops for women first came out, I really did ignore the reviews because it seemed hard to believe that a shoe could do as much as was claimed. However, after getting my own pair of fitness flip flops on a whim, and because they were on sale, I quickly changed my mind. Once you get used to the slight changes, they are very easy to wear and you don't even feel the difference, but you definitely will see the change.

Garage Sailing on a Saturday!

I had an hour to burn this morning while Missy was taking an exam at the local college, so I decided to spend it garage sailing! I was actually debating between looking for a couple garage sales and going to a coffee shop because I only had $5 cash on me (and didn't feel motivated to hit an ATM) and it was cold and threatening to rain.  So glad I went with the sales because I found some great stuff. 

Today I found:

Sometimes You Feel Like a Mom, Sometimes You Don't

You all know by now that I am a big sister. I love being a big sister because in a way, it's the best of both worlds-- at least in my case.
Often I feel like I have already raised children, even though I have never had any of my own, and honestly, it is how I feel about the twins.  Sometimes I feel like a mom, I have them with me so much, and then sometimes I don'tI love the days I do just as much as I love the days I don't.

Even though I have been there for a lot of it, I will still never know how my mom managed to raise all nine of us. I know I would never be able to do it.

There are as many men in my family as there are women, a lot, so I am so glad when I find places like Champagne Wishes and Caviar Dremes it makes shopping for them so much easier. Graphic tees are a very popular option when it comes to clubwear for men, and this online store is stocked with plenty to choose from.
