Four Ways To Improve Non-Alcoholic Cocktail-Making Skills At Home

This is a collaborative post. Please welcome today's contributor.

Making pretty beverages in the home is a great way of entertaining guests and a more than appropriate way to round off the working week on a Friday evening. However, not everyone has the expert skills of a bartender or mixologist.

Nevertheless, it’s something that can easily be learned, and having the right utensils needed can make all the difference when it comes to the cocktail-making at hand. Here are four ways to improve cocktail-making skills at home (I'm talking about non-alcoholic, but of course this would work for those using it too). I do love to serve or receive a pretty drink and have ever since the Shirley Temple days of my youth (does anyone remember getting those in restaurants as a kid?).

If you need to be more creative with your kids’ lunches, the power lies in the lunchbox itself. A great lunchbox is not just about the food; it's about the compartments, the layout, the design, and everything else that makes this box something you want your kids to tuck into come lunchtime, especially if you're trying to help them be healthier.

6 Things to Put in a Care Package for Your College Student

Disclosure; The following items were provided to me at a discount, or for no charge. All opinions stated, however, are genuine and my own.

Okay, school has pretty much officially started back up for everyone now, including the kiddos who have made their way to college. Getting them packed up and ready to go is a big deal, but now that they're settled, wouldn't it be nice to send over a little care package? From serious, to useful, to fun, these are all things your college student might enjoy receiving for a surprise 'thinking of you' delivery.

1). Tee Turtle makes a reversible stuffie line that is just too cute. I have the traditional octopus on my desk at school and the students just love it. I saw this one though and thought it would be perfect to send in a care package to a college student. There's something about these that is just irresistible. My blue octopus has a happy face on one side, and a frown on the other. This pumpkin version has a menacing face on one side, and a sweet one on the other. It is an axolotl, which is something I have never heard of in my life until now. Look it up; if it's new to you, maybe you'll be amazed too.

Washington DC is a city of politicians, lobbyists, and stretched limousines, ferrying VIPs from one important location to another. It’s also the nation’s capital. Yet the city doesn’t get a lot of air time. And most travel-focused people never visit it. There are too many other things to see.

Wordless Wednesday: Old-Timers Syndrome


Ah, I don't care what anyone says, those were the days...
Things weren't perfect but we walked right into grandma and grandpa's house
(no knock or appointment needed) and they were happy to see us (every single time). 
We were just as happy to see them (and we did, often)
and grandma often had something fantastic on the stove or in the oven (no holiday required). 💗

Doing a Target Run for Toys

Disclosure: I was provided complimentary products or discount codes to use towards the purchase of the product(s). All opinions stated are genuine and my own. 

What toy can make a 2-year-old laugh uncontrollably and still hold the attention of a teenager? That would be the Wubble. You can get it in different sizes, and you can even get one that glows in the dark. He had more fun with this than he does any other toy in the house. This child was seriously cracking up while he was playing with the Wubble, which looks like a tie-dye bubble but plays like a ball.
