Tips for Feeling Better When You’re Sick

Tips for Feeling Better When You're Sick

When I don’t feel well, I don’t want to do anything but sit on the couch and read or watch movies. Of course, I can’t just stop doing everything else. Meals still need to be made. Laundry still has to be done. There’s just to much work to be done for me to let being …

The Lost Boy by Camilla Lackberg

Detective Patrik Hedstrom is no stranger to tragedy. A murder case concerning Fjällbacka’s dead financial director, Mats Sverin, is a grim but useful distraction from his recent family misfortunes. It seems Sverin was a man who everybody liked yet nobody really knew ― a man with something to hide . . .

One of my goals for the New Year is to stay on top of my reading list. There are so many great books that I want to read but I just get too busy with blogging and put off reading for enjoyment because I run out of time. This year, I hope to be able …

Marcus & Marcus Silicone Bath Toys

My kids used to love playing with bath toys when they were little. Now we know that many of the bath toys out there contain materials that aren’t safe for children to put in their mouths like phthalates. Or maybe you’ve noticed that water (and germs) get inside the toys and then come out in …

365 Crochet Patterns for 365 Days by White Lemon

My daughter learned how to crochet last year and has been looking for a few simple crochet patterns to make as gifts for friends. She didn’t want anything too complicated because she doesn’t have hours to put into a project. With 365 crochet patterns, I knew that there would be some she’d enjoy. Thank you to …
