So, as you may or may not know, I’ve been re-doing my office. Or rather, I’ve been making myself an office. After working at either the dining room table or a table in the living room for the past 3 or so years, I decided it was time, and I deserved it.

So far, so good. Well, except for one thing. The sun comes streaming in the one window starting early in the morning. Normally, I’d totally consider this a win. However, this radiant sunlight is creating glare on all the screens – tablets, computer monitor, laptop, tv, you name it. It seems that no matter how I moved things around, there was still a glare. No Bueno.

Special thanks to Lunchbox for sponsoring this recipe.

I am a sucker for appetizers. I can eat just appetizers and no actual meal, and be super happy. When I was a kid, it seems that clam dip was everywhere, and it was my favorite type of dip. I don’t know if it was just the 1980s, or when the classic clam dip fell out of favor.

Fast forward, and I’ve decided to do my part to bring it back. This version of classic clam dip is different though. This is a lighter and fluffier version that lower in fat and calories, but still high in flavor. That’s something we all want.

Last week, I told you about Cameron’s Coffee.  They make exquisite, handcrafted coffee in these great single serve pods.  These single serve pods work with almost all single serve brewers, like your Keurig, Breville, and other machines.

The best part, aside from the amazing coffee, is that these aren’t made with a plastic cup.  Instead, they have an actual coffee filter, and are eco friendly.  Awesome, right?

One lucky winner is going to get two boxes of their choice of flavors of coffee pods.  Ready to enter?  Do so in the Gleam widget after the jump.

One of the things I’ve been toying with is going to cosmetology school. Now, I don’t want to do makeup professionally, other than on my blogs. I just want to know how to get better at doing makeup. I figure I’m not the only person out there that feels this way.

How to Get Better at Doing Makeup?

Boy, that’s a loaded question. I mean, they say practice makes perfect, and I suppose in some instances it does. BUT – bad technique and bad looks will just get reinforced. So what do you need?

buying a house

Sooo…I’ve been trying to decide what I want to do for 2015. What my goals are, and what is really achievable. One of the things on my list is buying a house. I was sort of of the thought “Oh, I can’t afford that.” After doing a bit of research, I’ve realized that home ownership isn’t that far of a reach, and with a little bit of work, buying a house is a realistic goal.. Hmmm…If you’re like me, and pondering purchasing a home, read on for the steps to take.

Who doesn’t love snow globes?  These snow globe Christmas ornaments just add another dimension,  Great for package toppers, too.

snowglobe-christmas-ornament-tutorial

I have always loved snow globes.  They have these great, detailed scenes, and when you shake them, they disappear in the flurry of whatever they use to make fake snow.  And just before everything settles down, shake them again, really hard, with all your might.

Oh?  Everyone doesn’t do that?  Or try to get all the snow globes in a collection going at once?  Hmmm…you don’t say.

In any case, these snow globe Christmas ornaments are a fantastic addition to anyone’s tree.  They’re inexpensive to make, too.
