You Won’t Believe What Happens When I Sneeze! #ad #vn #underwareness

*I am participating in a Vibrant Influencer network campaign for the Depend brand. I am receiving a fee for posting; however, the opinions expressed in this post are my own. I am in no way affiliated with Depend and do not earn a commission or percent of sales.*

You won’t believe what happens when I sneeze…or laugh too hard or exercise vigorously.  Oh the joys of having children and getting older.  *sigh*

I want to share a secret with you all that a lot of women, especially younger ones, are too embarrassed to mention.  Over 51  million American women experience bladder leakage. That’s 1 in 3 American women and I happen to one of those 51 million women!  There are many common causes of bladder leakage in women including pregnancy, childbirth and even diabetes.  For me, my issues started when I was pregnant with my first daughter.  I even had my midwife check me to make sure my amniotic fluid wasn’t leaking.  Talk about embarrassing!  In my case I was dealing with bladder leakage.  I always assumed this was an issue for people that were A LOT older than me.  Boy was I wrong!

Not only did I have to deal with this issue when I sneezed or coughed but now it was interfering with me trying to stay fit.  This is where I draw the line.  It was either lay off working out and pack on some unnecessary pounds or try to get my sexy back and risk “tinkling my undies” while exercising.  Neither would be a good look, but thankfully there are ways to help deal with this.

To support the over 51 million women who experience bladder leakage, the Depend brand is introducing Depend Silhouette Active Fit briefs, a new moderate-absorbency brief that features a thin design for complete comfort with the trusted protection of the Depend brand and a lower rise+for an underwear-like look, fit and feel.   [Read more…]

LEGO® KidsFest is the Ultimate Adventure for LEGO Fans

*My family and I were given tickets to attend the LEGO® KidsFest in Nashville in exchange for promotion.  All opions expressed are my own*

A few weeks ago I did a post about LEGO® KidsFest coming to Nashville April 17th-19th.  We had the chance to attend during the opening night and we had a blast.  If you have a LEGO lover in your house, it is definitely the place to be!  From the minute you walk through the doors, you are greeted by life-size LEGO creations.  I can only imagine how much time and effort went into not only making the “sculptures” but also the time just designing one!

You Won’t Believe What I Did to Sybil!

For the last year or so I’ve been lusting for some time of change to take Sybil to the next level.  After my “Can I make it a year” without cutting my hair challenge I thought getting a new cut would pacify my need for a drastic change.  That lasted for a few months before I started scouring Pinterest and Instagram for some inspiration.

Last year I had a wild hair up my butt that I wanted to dye it pink.  I wanted to do it in support of my mom having a double mastectomy after she was diagnosed with breast cancer.  That quickly changed when I realized that I might end up looking like chocolate dipped straw with cotton candy on top!

So back to the drawing board I went!  Several of my curlfriends on instagram have been sporting purple and blue hair and I just knew that would be perfect for Sybil.  I reached out to a stylist I’ve been following for a while via IG and told her that when I was in Orlando, she would have to hook me up. Alana AKA Primadonna_Lana on IG decided purple would be a good choice for me and I’m so glad she picked it!

Now in order to get Sybil to a rich and vibrant purple we first had to lift my brown.  Now when I say lift…I mean we had to L I F T it to blonde.  WOW is all I can say when I saw my reflection in the mirror. LOL [Read more…]
