Currently {April 2017}

Hey, hey, it’s already 4-20-2017! I figured this was the best time to go ahead and share what I’ve been up to currently.

{Flashback: Currently April 2016}

Currently April.



If I can use these books as inspiration for my swap box partner’s #SPBoxSwap box. 🙂 I am partnered up with Carly-Ann and I’m super excited to pull together a fun box to send to her. 🙂


Currently April Fun Inspiration#SPBoxSwap SPRING Blogger-to-blogger box swap


Too much BRAVO. 😀

Apparently I was behind on the Housewives, so I’m getting all caught up.


Also, Once Upon a Time. I’m a few seasons behind.





More time to create. I’ve been having so much fun painting.

Currently wanting do more art.

And claying? 🙂

Currently April Fun with Clay


Currently wishing that you would check out this month’s posts. 🙂

I shared Two Truths and a Lie Part 1 and Part 2 (The Whole Truth).

I’ve been busy over on my other blog with Phyllis: Living a Positive Lifestyle. You may want to check out some of the posts I’ve posted over there, too. 🙂

5 Ways to Start Your Day Off with Positivity 



On me! That’s right, this lady needs all the work. I’ve been really trying to stick to being more positive, which means self-care, gratitude and trying oh so hard to filter out the negative. Seriously, it’s hard to filter out the negative.



Along with trying to keep things positive, I’ve been doing pretty good at keeping up with my kettlebell workouts. I could use some more work on organization and I need to work on my ETSY SHOP. I’ve been a slacker there and on my shop’s Instagram account. I’m always a work in progress. 😉

But you know what’s not work? Happy Mail. 🙂 I was so happy to receive this complimentary Charm VoxBox from Influenster.

Charm Voxbox

Currently loving this Charm Voxbox


Here’s what was inside my box of FREE goodies:

I currently do not own perfume, so these samples were perfect, because they gave me an opportunity to explore if Vera Wang was for me. Influenster sent me Embrace Marigold and Gardenia and Embrace Rose Buds and Vanilla. I love all things vanilla ( 😀 TWHS ), so I thought naturally I’d gravitate to the Rose Buds & Vanilla, but actually, I think I like Marigold and Gardenia more. With the name Embrace Marigold and Gardenia you may think it smells like straight up flowers, but really it doesn’t. It’s light with a sweet musk, I love it.

The Wet N’ Wild 1 Step Wonder Gel Nail Polish {Periwinkle} was the perfect shade to match this beauty….


Currently April

I’m going to let you in on a little secret, and this big because I’m a Starbucks shareholder, but I think we like the nail polish better. My daughter’s nails look so pretty and shiny;  she is totally happy with the polish. The drink, it’s good, but it’s a little too much for me. PLUS, there’s no coffee! However, it’s awfully gorgeous. 🙂

Okay, Ifluenster won me over with EVA NYC! I’ve never tried this brand before, but I’m in! I loved both the shampoo and hair mask. I do NOT wash my hair every day, I have crazy curly hair it, that’s just not good for it.  The Clean It Up Shampoo gives a GOOOOOD clean to my hair and the mask helps to moisturize. I’m loving my curls right now. 🙂

Can you go wrong with Natural NO SUGAR ADDED Mott’s? My son’s answer: NO! He gobbled that pouch up before practice. 🙂

Sending ME taco mix is kind of funny. 🙂 No? I appreciated that the mix was organic. I used the mix this week, TACO TUESDAY! The tacos were a hit, but they always are. I can’t tell you it was solely the mix, because I always add my own flair, but I’m sure the taco mix helped. 😉

These PEEPS Delights were a hit! I didn’t have any, but I hear they were yummy. 🙂

  1. I’ve been working on myself too. Listening to Louise Hay affirmations to help me keep a positive mindset.
    I’m excited for the Spring Swap too. These swaps are always so much fun. ☺
    I would love to have more time for creating. I cut out the fabric for my daughter’s Troll dress, but I need some time to see it.

    1. I adore that you’ve been listening to affirmations to help with a positive mindset, it helps immensely.
      Love, love, love the swaps!
      If only there were more hours in the day, right? I hope you’ll share the Troll dress when you’re done!!

  2. I can’t wait to dig into your new blog!!!
    Your clay is amazing.
    I’ve always wanted to try VEEP.
    I have seen Once Upon a Time since the beginning, but I skipped the last five episodes. I don’t like it anymore! I miss liking it.

  3. I love Influenster! I haven’t received anything from them in a while, but they give out such fun boxes! Looks like you got some great goodies 🙂

    Also! Your creations are seriously adorable! Love all your clay pieces!!! Seriously, you are so talented.

    Bravo–hoping to catch up with housewives everything this weekend. it’s a rainy weekend in NJ, so perfect time to do it.

    And the positivity thing… it is always a work in progress… but I seriously think that once we surround ourselves with good and supportive, nontoxic people, we start to feel better on the inside.

    I want to take a pic of that unicorn drink, but that’s about it. Too much sugar (but your daughter’s nails are beautiful!!).
