I Am Most Thankful For…..REMIX Thanksgiving 2018

Happy Thanksgiving! This post is a classic remix from when I first started this blog in 2012! It gave me a LOL! Feel free to add to it in the comments. I am THANKFUL for: Being raised by the 2 most amazing people who have been supportive through all my 9 lives and taught me never to be scared of my own shadow. Being blessed to have had a sister that I shared everything with and knowing that she is watching over me every day. Having the strength to kick ass literally and figuratively. Puppies. All of them, especially Teddy… Continue Reading

Retail Therapy Is Causing Me To Need Therapy

Retail Therapy Is Causing Me To Need Therapy

Remember the days when you could walk into a store and shop for things that were actually in the store? You didn’t have to ask for a size and have the retail associate tell you to order it online. If I wanted to sit at home and buy these ugly styles from the comfort of my own home, I would. I came to this store to see and try on these drapes, I mean, clothes. I want to see them, feel them and try them on so that I could decide if it looks like I am wearing my grandmother’s… Continue Reading

Social Media Influencer Campaign Done Right: MillerCoors Arnold Palmer Spiked

Social Media Influencer Campaign Done Right: MillerCoors Arnold Palmer Spiked

A few months ago, I was offered a dream campaign for my Instagram account from MillerCoors unveiling the new Arnold Palmer Spiked drink at the Waste Management Phoenix Open. This campaign was a perfect fit for me for all of these reasons and more: 1. I like to drink. I really like spiked lemonade drinks that taste good! 2. I love to golf! I would rather be golfing now. 3. The Waste Management Phoenix Open is one of the coolest events I have ever been to and I have been to A LOT of events. I mean….it is called the… Continue Reading

Harvey’s Hungry: Lending A Helping Hand And Feeding Over 10,000 People

Harvey’s Hungry: Lending A Hand And Feeding Over 10,000 People

This post is a follow up to my first blog about Hurricane Harvey and the relief efforts to feed the hungry on the front lines in Houston. Jeff and Sheryl Weinstock of Cake & Bacon have been silent heroes in their quest to feed as many people as possible. I asked Jeff to give me a breakdown of what has happened since the hurricane hit and think it best he tell you what his team accomplished the past weekend serving over 10 thousand people. This is an incredible story and so happy to have been able to take a little… Continue Reading

Life is complicated. Raising a great dog doesn’t have to be.

Life is complicated. Raising a great dog doesn’t have to be.

Thank you to Rob Steinberg for this guest post. He is a fellow Wildcat and dog fan, especially a Teddy Brewski fan. Read this because life is complicated but raising a great dog does not have to be with the Puptimize App. It’s Teddy Brewski and Giggi Vanderpump approved so you know its good. Take it away Rob…… It’s great being Teddy Brewski. His days are filled with people letting him know how cute he is (even though he already knows) and incredibly relaxing afternoon naps in the sun. Yep, life is pretty good for Teddy. But life is a… Continue Reading

Branding Advice All Bloggers Need

Branding advice for bloggers is something I discuss frequently and agree with Laura’s post and points discussed here about the topic! Take notes. Thanks Laura.  If you’re trying to be successful as a blogger, you have to treat your blog like a business. And like any business, it’s important for your blog to have a brand. When you have a brand, you can market yourself and your blog better. But as many blog owners aren’t coming from a position of being a business person or entrepreneur, they might not have a lot of experience with branding. Branding your blog is… Continue Reading
