Throw a Pet Pawty With Evite Invitations & Win The #PawtyPeople Contest

Throw a Pet Pawty With Evite Invitations & Win The #PawtyPeople Contest

OMG! Be forewarned, this is one of the cutest things you will read all day! Evite just launched a new Pet Party Themed category with invitations and correspondence cards. How cute is that? I can’t get enough of the options on the Evite site. Seriously? Where does one start? I wanted to throw a football pawty for Teddy since he is named after Teddy Bruschi (the football player, of course) and they had the cutest Evite on the site. Look! LOVE! Touchdown! But, the problem is there are no football games on right now and I want to throw Teddy… Continue Reading

Bye-Bye Fine Lines: Win $305 Of Derma MD Exclusive Beauty Products

Bye-Bye Fine Lines: Win $305 Of Derma MD Exclusive Beauty Products

Happy Wednesday people! I am back and obeying doctor’s orders spending only 20 minutes on and off the computer at a time. This is challenging for sure but you only get one set of eyes and you better bet that I am going to do everything I can to protect them! If you don’t know, I had a little accident and have been out of commission for the past two weeks. But, during that time away from the computer I have been able to test, try and fall in love with a beauty and cosmetic brand called Derma MD. The… Continue Reading

Melany’s Mantra: Repeat, Rinse And Repeat

Melany's Mantra

Every morning I swear to repeat this mantra. I am going to print it out and hang on my mirror. It is the summer and I want to take some time for myself while still being able to do the things I WANT to do. This means not feeling obligated to do things others think I SHOULD be doing. Here we go. Cue the chanting music and theme lighting. Add a candle and throw in some incense but please spare me the Nag Champa. I think I left that scent back in San Francisco on Haight Street when I was… Continue Reading

Plug Me Back In: Hump Day Snarkiness

Plug Me Back In: Hump Day Snarkiness

Good Morning and happy Hump Day! In celebration of it being just that I thought I would share a little known skill I possess and might need to add to my media kit. I can rap (ish) the entire Humpty Dance by Digital Underground. Yes, that is me in an Uber. Highly recommend using uber when you feel a little happy of have a drink or 4. It is awesome. Also, take a look at my updated media kit if you have a product or work for a brand that might be a snarky fit for MelanysGuydlines. Always looking for… Continue Reading

FORE: Gone Golfing

FORE: Gone Golfing

I did it. I finally got in touch with a golf pro and am now on the golf course taking lessons. It is super challenging and takes patience, which I don’t usually have but need if I am going to be good at this sport. Yes, this is a sport. I apologize to my friend in seventh grade when I said golf wasn’t a sport. Wow – was I wrong! In my defense, I was an avid softball player and couldn’t see anything else but a softball bat and a ball (and cute baseball players). So, I am finally taking… Continue Reading

3 Pieces of Relationship Advice You Should Never Follow

3 Pieces of Relationship Advice You Should Never Follow

Love this super snarky post from Laura! She is really getting the hang of the snark! Well done and great tips here. I would have been equally annoyed with this guy and probably would have told him where he could go before he proceeded with point two. Take it away. Last night I came face to face with my first ever real life ‘Life Coach’. And I can quite honestly say that I could have gone my entire life without meeting him, or any other life coach for that matter, and been perfectly happy. But this article is not about… Continue Reading

I Just Let Go With the letgo App: Try It and letgo

I Just Let Go With the Letgo App: Try It and Letgo

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of letgo for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine. Well, we all have stuff and if you are like me then, we both have a lot of stuff. Some things seem like a good buy and then you get home and ask yourself “Self, do I really need 5 different colors of the same exact shirt or skirt or glasses?” Recently, I moved (again) and can’t believe how little time it takes to accumulate things that I just can’t use because I am only one person and don’t have enough… Continue Reading

Find Gift Inspiration for Friends with My Guide

Find Gift Inspiration for Friends with My Guide

It has been a few weeks since we have enjoyed a post from Laura. Happy to share this great post for friend gift inspo. BTW: she mentions jewelry here and you should stay tuned for an exciting jewelry announcement next week! Getting gifts for friends can be easy, or it can take you forever. It’s often harder when you haven’t been friends long. Then it gets easier as you get to know each other better, and then harder again when you start running out of ideas. I love shopping for my besties, but wanting to make them happy means it… Continue Reading

Social Media “No-No’s” and Pet Peeves

Social Media “No-No’s” and Pet Peaves

Let’s face it. The majority of us spend a lot of time online. I think I might spend more than the average person (and Teddy Brewski more than the average puppy) on some form of electronic device. To be fair, it is my job and there are many things I love about being fully online and engaged with people from all over the world on my computer or phone. However there are some “no-no’s” that people do online that drive me up the wall. 1. Being a flat out nasty, hater or troll. We are very lucky to enjoy our… Continue Reading

MG Runs On Dunkin’ Donuts: Pistachio Coffee & All Day Breakfast

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Dunkin’ Donuts through Blog Meets Brand. All snarky thoughts are my own. Happy Spring! I love this time of year because there is so much going on and a lot of things to do! The only problem I have right now is that I have less energy trying to be everywhere and do everything on time. It seems like I have an event every single day and I don’t want to miss anything. So, I need coffee! Sometimes, I even need a cup twice a day. Seriously. Like today,… Continue Reading
