Don't Be An Idiot On Instagram

Oh Instagram. One of my favorite forms of social media! Theres just something about mass amounts of filters and hashtags that really revs my engine. I know I have done a post similar to this with my Internet Pet Peeves, but I'm singling out Instagram today. 
If you don't follow me over there yet, you clearly don't follow very many cool people. I kid, I kid. However, I DID change my handle and you should definitely go check it out! Everything is getting in sync. *insert angels singing*

Anyway, I'm straying…back to the post. Don't be an idiot on instagram. It's simple, really. 
Let me break it down for you and share the things that truly annoy me 

1) #dont #you #dare #do #this

2) LET ME REPEAT BECAUSE ITS IMPORTANT:
#dont #ever #do #this #it #is #so #annoying

3) "See above 'Internet Pet Peeves' post"

4) The people who make a collage with 539 pictures in it. 
Excuse me but your pictures are too small and I can't zoom and I can't creep your pictures.

5) The underage girls who post 15 selfies in one night holding a bottle of alcohol. 
Nothing screams "IM UNDERAGE" quite like the pictures of you and alcohol. 

6) The people who pride themselves in never using a filter. 
Get over yourself. Some days are more rough than others and we need a filter every now and then.

7) The people who are super creepy on comments
This needs no explanation. We've all seen it.

8) Private User Accounts
Y u no let me creep?!

9) People who don't follow me
I'm clearly awesome and you're missing out

What are some of your biggest instagram annoyances? Leave them in the comments!

Kupp' Review!

Eco-friendly. Just for kids. Easy to clean
Do I have your attention yet?!

Let me just say these Kupp' kids cups are awesome little cups! 
I love fun colors of any cups, plates, or dinnerware so these were perfect to add to our collection! 



When these arrived in the mail baby girl was BEYOND excited! Something SHE could use! 
These Kupp' reusable, BPA free kids cups came in four colors; blue, orange, green, and red. 

Baby girl loved having a "big kid cup" at the dinner with us. Every night she used one of these she loved saying "LETS CHEERS!" and clinking our glasses together! Adorable, I know. ;) 

I love the small handle grip on these. It makes it perfect for any little hands to use. Also, I felt like the glass was SUPER simple to clean. The Kupp' was inspired by kids and made by moms. This kid friendly cup is an easier way to let your kids "help" around the kitchen. Placing THEIR cup on the table, cleaning it, and putting it away. Pretty simple, huh?!

These amazing cups can be found on their website HERE, as well as more information about their company and even how to become an affiliate! 

If you have any further questions about these cups, please post a comment below. 
ALSO! I am giving away ONE Kupp' on my Instagram page if you want to try one of these out for kiddo! 

{This product was sent to me for review via Moms Meet and their Mom Ambassador Program, however all opinions are my own}

Start A 'Go Fund Me' Campaign If...

I've seen 5,492,593,049 Go Fund Me Campaigns floating around. 
Not to worry though, YOU TOO can have a campaign! Here are a few ideas for you…

Start a campaign if…

-You can't decide what to have for dinner.
Yes, if you start a campaign because you don't know what to have for dinner, people will send you money and then you can buy a grocery store therefore resulting in the fact that you can purchase any and all food. Then you'll never have to decide on one meal again. 

-You stub your toe on the couch.
Emotional damage is a real thing. Better start saving up for the psychological help you may need in the future because of this life-altering event.

-You missed the season finale/series premier of your favorite show.
If enough people donate, you can afford 10 TV's, along with cable from every tv provider, Netflix, Hulu Plus, and you can make sure you never miss another episode again. 

-You want to take a tropical vacation.
Hey, no one else wants to take a vacation in the world. So YOU start a campaign and we'll all send you our money so you can enjoy that for us. 

-You want to help others.
Your cousins, co-worker has decided to go gluten free and you want to support their new lifestyle change. 
Start a campaign! 

-You want to get cosmetic surgery for your dog.
Does your dog have crooked ears?! Let's talk about cosmetic surgeries that can be done. Can't afford it? No problem. People will help you. 

If you've had trouble coming up with ideas for campaigns, I have you covered. However if you use one of my brilliant ideas, I do ask for small donation to my "Momma Needs New Kicks" Campaign!

I Don't Hate You Because You're Pregnant

My life is, for the most part, an open book. I share my life on the internet with strangers i've never met. Most people think i'm crazy, but I know there's a few people out there who understand why I do what I do. Those few people make all of this worth it. Those few people who message me and comment and tell me "hey, you're not alone", they make it worth it. 

When I wrote THIS POST, it was more or less broadcasted to the world that we are "trying" to have kids. I never in my life imaged I would be one of those people to tell others about that because, well, quiet frankly no one needs to know about that. Haha! 
However, things changed when I found out that we might have "trouble". This is MY blog and like I said in that post, I don't want to have to lie or not blog about things relevant to my life. 

With all that being said, a lot has changed. When someone I know talks about being pregnant, or getting pregnant, or anything along those lines, it's as if they feel bad. They hesitate. They hold back telling me all the exciting details because they think they are "hurting my feelings." I don't hate you for being pregnant! In fact, i'm SUPER excited for anyone who does get pregnant! What a blessing!! I'm not mad or angry or bitter towards anyone getting pregnant just because it isn't our time right now. Is it hard sometimes? Absolutely. I won't lie about that. But that doesn't change my excitement for other people. I get happy for people I watch on YouTube who get pregnant and I don't even know those people! Seriously, just ask my husband. I talk about these people like I know them. In reality, I don't, and i'm just a stalker. It's normal. 

Also, why is it that every time I'm on facebook/twitter/instagram, SOMEONE has to complain about "everyone getting pregnant" or "if I see one more pregnancy announcement i'm gonna lose it". Do people not realize some people WANT to be pregnant. Some people pray and pray and PRAY over that child they just got blessed with? Why is it such a BAD THING to post on Facebook, or post pictures on Instagram about your pregnancy/kids/WHATEVER YOU WANT. Want my opinion? UNFRIEND THOSE PEOPLE if you don't want to see it. And on the flip side, maybe those people don't want to see YOUR posts about getting drunk, having a TOTES AWESOME TIME AT THE CLUB, and not knowing where your car is on tuesday morning. Just a thought. :) 

Okay, im ranting. Let's bring it back in…

I don't hate you because you're pregnant. I know our time will come. I know some day we will get to experience the joy and love and excitement that comes with expanding our family. Until then, all we can do is pray. Pray for patience, pray for contentment, pray for overall peace. 
I'm certain we were meant to be parents and i'm certain our time is coming.

Perfectly Posh {REVIEW} & ONLINE PARTY!

It's finally here! I've finally had a chance to really try all of the products I got sent to me and let me just start off by saying I AM TOTALLY IN LOVE!

If you haven't seen my first impressions video, head over HERE to watch it! 

Again I am so thankful for Christina and how kind she was to send me all of these products! I was so beyond excited to try them all! I loved that the packaging reminded me of LUSH products, although I've never shopped there. HA! 




I talked about this before, but the reason I got this awesome package was because of 'The Stripper'.(and my mishap with GlamGlow. GRR) I absolutely loved using it. A lot of people wanted me to review it and compare it to the GlamGlow so that's exactly what I did! 



I seriously loved ALL the products. I wasn't disappointed in any one of them. I loved the simple, clean scents of everything and of course I loved the chic packaging. 

Christina has been so kind to open up an online party for anyone who wants to order any of these awesome products! If you have questions about any of the products I personally tested, please feel free to ask or if you have general questions, head over to Christina's Facebook page

Things I will be purchasing due to the fact that I LOVED them:
•Lil Snarky Hand Creme {$9 for 3.0 fl oz}
This stuff was DIVINE. My husband even loved the scent of it. It wasn't overpowering which we both really enjoyed. The bottle says 'Exotic Flowers & Sandalwood' for anyone wondering about the scent. 
•Tree Hugger {$14 for 5 oz}
This was the sugar lip scrub I tried. I've been looking for something like this and I just absolutely loved it. The taste was awesome and the benefits were GREAT. There are three other types of lip stubs alongside this one so make sure you check out all 4! 
•Mint For Each Other Bath Bar {$9 for 7 oz}
The smell of this was simply amazing. 

Their catalog is filled with TONS of other amazing things. These are a few of the things i'm looking forward to ordering and trying:
•Fabulous Fizzies Foot Soakers
•Tousled Sea-Salty Hair Spritz
•Any of the Skindelicious Scrumptious Body Butters. All flavors sound wonderful.
•I've Been Set-Up! Setting & Refreshing Mist
•Rain Mask Vintage Visage Hydration

With the holidays coming up, this is the perfect way to get a head start on buying Christmas presents for all those special ladies in your life! Or just spoil yourself! ;)
