This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Carapelli for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine. I love Italian food. I would say it's safe to say I fix pasta at least three times a week. I also use a lot of olive oil — whether it's with spices and seasonings served […]

My Family is Taking the Listerine Oral Care Challenge

By: Donna Chaffins | Date: November 28, 2011 | Categories: Family and Health, Parenting

As someone who is particular about her oral hygeine, I find it frustrating that my son does not approach his with the same vigor. It's like pulling teeth (no pun intended) to get him to brush his teeth sometimes. And a huge hassle to get him to brush them long enough. Maybe it's a boy […]

No More Pants Bunching Up Over Your Boots

By: Donna Chaffins | Date: November 23, 2011 | Categories: Product Reviews, Shopping

I wore a pair of my favorite jeans with my boots the other day and was so aggravated the whole time because my jeans were boot cut so they bunched up over my jeans. Ugh! I couldn't wait to get home and take my boots off. And I love wearing boots this time of year. […]
