Review of RAMSHACKLE GLAM,The New Mom's Haphazard Guide to (Almost) Having It All, Jordan Reid

The title of the book RAMSHACKLE GLAM are opposite words, but they can work together as Jordan Reid shows us in her book trailer right here, watch and you'll probably relate to what she is talking about: 



As a mom and wife where do you find the time and energy to be you, you know, that you that was before the baby?  I found this book to be a good read for myself, as a not so new mom, and  I would recommend this book for any new mom, having been there myself. 

What do you do when you become a MOM? It's all so new, exciting, scary, fun, eventful, downsides, upsides, and how do you deal with all of that and still be you. We spend so much time taking care of our babies, that where do we find the time for ourselves? But you can have the your glam, and the toys all over the living room. 

In the book RAMSHACKLE GLAM, the author shares her story and advice on: 

  • motherhood 
  • priorities
  • tips on relationships,
  • fashion-like how to look and feel dazzling during and after pregnancy,  
  • home decor
  • entertaining
  • post-partum beauty 
  • meals
  • living with toys in your living room,
  • dogs and baby
  • taking the baby out for travel, meals
  • meeting other moms. 
  • She shares about the love a mom feels, that love you never knew existed until you have a baby
  • and many more good advice and tips throughout the book

Giveaway of New Soft Scrub® 4-in-1 Toliet Cleaner to three lucky winners.

  Let's talk about cleaning toilets. Hmm, I'd rather not talk about that, or clean them. However, I don't want dirty toilets in our house, so I have to clean all three of them. I'd clean four or five because I really would like two downstairs bathrooms in my next house. We have one powder room on the first floor and two full baths upstairs.I'd like three full baths upstairs. Why in the world would I want to clean all that? Who knows, but having a product that can help out cleaning the three we currently have in my house is greatly appreciated. Soft Scrub ®  is honestly amazing me with their new and improved products. I've learned about them in the past few months from trying them out and writing reviews.

Win an Ultimate prize pack from Betty Crocker Ultimate Meals and Mixes

So, how's the dinner time prep going? The kids are back in school, and  then after school is sports, band practice. Do you have the taxi light on top your car on? Sound familiar? I can relate. Those nights of soccer practice and games kept us moving. I am the late afternoon here on the East Coast, and glad to have my dinner thoughts together. How did I do it? The ultimate way, with new Ultimate Hamburger Helper from Betty Crocker ®, that's how. I whipped up, I'm calling it that, because it was easy to prepare and cook. I made Ultimate Hamburger Helper Three Cheese Marinara. Easy to understand directions are on the back of the box, and don't forget to cut out the Box Tops For Education Label before you toss the cardboard into your recycling bin.   How to make this warm hearty meal for your family: open a box of Ultimate Hamburger Helper Three Cheese Marinara Brown 1 pound ground beef in a skillet. I used organic ground beef. In that same skillet, add and stir in: 1 cup o

Giveaway of Three Copies of Les Misérables on Blu Ray DVD combo Pack

You know that part of a DVD that prompts you to select play, scenes, bonus, set up while bits of the movie play? I did not get past that for several plays through the song "Do you hear the people sing" with  people of France waving their flag, and singing about they will not be slaves again.  The song is so moving, so powerful. It can stir up your the strength within your soul, it can remind you of the freedom of being an American, and it can bring you to tears of sadness, happiness, and joy. Now on to select play: I saw Les Misérables at the preview screening last year and was captivated, motionless in my seat. The DVD has the same effect. You'll be taken back to another place, another time. The cast is perfect, the singing is moving, and the scenery is real old world "Paris". As I watched Les Misérables it's a reminder to myself, a wake up call for us all to be humble, be better. To forgive each other, let go of our egos, help each other at times of need,
