These Are All Way Better Than Strapless Bras


If you hate strapless bras, you are my friend. I was forever adjusting them and pulling them up, and then I decided not to wear them anymore. Here are the items I wear now.

Flowers, Netflix and Snack Time Favorites


Several people asked us where we like to get plants, trees and flowers. We love going to Lake Forest Gardens in Zelienople. It’s worth the drive. They have an amazing selection! Mark and I are currently binging Bloodline on Netflix. Oh, it’s good. But definitely not appropriate for a family/kid show. 🙂 I can’t get enough of this nighttime snack…toast with Better ‘N Peanut Butter and a bit of strawberry jam. It’s sweet enough that…

What We’re Loving This Week!


I shared on Instagram last week that I tried a new hair pomade off the shelf at Target and LOVED it. It’s the Kristin Ess pomade, and I use it to texturize and piece out my hair after curling it. For those of us who swear by dry shampoo, I’ve found that Dove works great for blondes. Sometimes there’s a little leftover on the scalp after I’ve massaged it in, but since my hair is…

What We’re Loving This Week!


I’m a sucker for a good drugstore beauty product. I read ALL the blogs and articles about them and found a great new sunscreen. It’s called La Roche-Posay Anthelios Melt-In Sunscreen Milk. It’s SPF 60 and there’s no chalky white residue left on your face. This week, I shared that my parents got their first dose of the COVID vaccine. Lots of followers shared their tips for getting appointments. Here’s a Pittsburgh Facebook page that’s…

The Best Things About Your Late 30s & Early 40s


Courtney’s favorite things (at 38 years old!) I now understand the true pleasure of a hot bubble bath with lavender epsom salt (I use Dr. Teal’s), plus a book (currently reading We Were Liars) and a small glass of red wine. This is my favorite way to relax, and I probably do this 4 times a week! Finally found some solid business podcasts and blogs about finance and investing. My favorites are here, here and…
