Happy Friday!  We all made it to the end of another week.  Speaking of endings, where did Februrary go?  This year is blowing by quickly just like 2017 did.  And can we talk about how crazy the weather has been lately?!  Last weekend it was warm enough to turn on the AC but this weekend we're back to using the heat.  I would be forever grateful if Mother Nature could get her act together.  Please and thank you!

February Pinchme Box

"It's Pinchme Day!" My baby sister sends me this reminder every other Tuesday morning. For those of you who don't know what Pinchme is, it's a company that allows consumers to sample products from different brands. So essentially you get to test drive products risk-free and then decide if the product is worth investing your coins into. I love it!!

I have kids and bills. So I hate when I invest in products and they turn out to be duds. In my mind, I'm usually thinking about how that money would have probably been put to better use if I had known beforehand that it wasn't worth spending any coins on. Also, on Pinchme, you can leave feedback that gets sent to the brand. So if a hair company has a shampoo that claims to be for all hair types but you're a curly girl and that shampoo did nothing for you, you can let them know.

All in all, I think Pinchme is a win-win for brands and consumers. Now on the samples. This month I only got three samples but I enjoyed them all. Keep reading to get all the deets on what I got in my box. Also, in the spirit of full disclosure, there are affiliate links in the rest of this post.

Happy New Year and Happy Black History Month!  I made the decision to take January off.  I had some personal things that I really needed to focus on.  But I'm back and happy to be back.  Taking a month gave me the chance to recharge my batteries and to be more present in my home life.  Anyways, I hope that your 2018 has gotten off to wonderful start.

You guys may not know this about me, but I love Q & As and tags.  I saw this TBB Asks Holiday Q & A going and thought I'd give it a go.  After all I do love the holidays.  Plus, I think these kind of posts help us to get to know each other on a more personal level. And they're just plain fun to do.

Happy Friday!  How was everyone's week?  This a bit a lazy week for me and my family.  I actually got to sleep in 3 days in a row.  Anyways, who's still working on their Christmas shopping? 🙋 I have a handful of gifts left to buy before I'll be finished.  Well, here's what we've been up to since my last post.

Is this really the last Friday in October?  Honestly, I can't believe how fast this month has by.  It seems like it went by faster than all the rest.  I suspect the November and December will go by in just as much of blur as this month did as well.  I'm not complaining because I'm ready for the holidays and ready to spend time with my family members that I haven't seen in a while.

It's final starting to hit me that the holidays are literally right around the corner.  We're only 6 weeks out from Thanksgiving.  I haven't even started on our menu.  I'm looking forward to the end of the month though because we always put our Christmas tree up on November 1st.  I know it's early for some, but I really like to enjoy my Christmas decorations and bring my Christmas presents out of the closets to finally nestle around the tree.  Anyways, I hope that everyone had a great week this week.
