This could be an unpopular opinion, but I’ll say it anyway. I hate getting manicures at the nail salon.

Don’t get me wrong, I love having nicely manicured nails but I hate the process of actually getting the manicure for many reasons.

  1. It takes forever, and I hate wasting my time at the salon.
  2. It’s not relaxing or fun for me.
  3. I am usually uncomfortable in the nail salon chairs.
  4. It’s expensive and I’d rather spend my money on things I enjoy.
  5. Even gel or SNS manicures just don’t last very long on me.

How You Can Get the Best Sleep Ever: A Big Fig Mattress Review

Disclosure:  I received a free bed from Big Fig in order to review it for you on the blog.  Links in this post are affiliate links, and you can read my disclosures here.  As always, integrity is my number one priority and all opinions are my own.  

I’m not really sure why, but I’ve never been a great sleeper. I struggle to fall asleep. I toss and turn. I wake up achy. There are many days that I wake up tired even after 8+ hours in bed.  My dad still tells stories about how I used to kick, roll and flail when I slept as a child.

As I got older I’d occasionally turn to Nyquil, melatonin, or other sleep aids when things got really bad.  While they would help improve my sleep on the nights I used them, nothing really solved my problems long term.

I accepted fatigue and bad sleep as my reality, but for the past two months I’ve gotten the best sleep of my life.  I’m excited to share my story with you because I believe that the change I made in upgrading to a Big Fig Mattress changed my life forever.

You can check out all the specifics about the mattress here and use my code PLUSLIFEBLOG to save $$$!

Out of all my fashion struggles, I think shoes are by far the most challenging for me.  I have REALLY wide feet and sometimes deal with swelling.  I spend a lot of my time wearing stretchy flats and rarely wear sneakers unless I’m exercising.

Not sure about you, but I LOVE a good subscription service!  I’ve tried them for clothing, jewelry, makeup, groceries, and pretty much anything else I can find.

It is SO exciting to get new goodies delivered to your door – such a special treat!

Just when I thought I’d tried (and loved) every type of subscription service out there, I discovered Panty Drop, a subscription service for panties.  First, how AWESOME is “Panty Drop” as a business name for a panty subscription service? SERIOUSLY! Branding genius.  I knew I wanted in based on the name alone!

Most of you don’t know this because I’ve never discussed it publicly, but I have suffered from intense foot pain for years.

I have flat feet and have had a variety of different aches and pains over the years.  I got tired of living in pain a few years ago and finally went to the doctor where I was diagnosed with heel spurs and plantar fasciitis.

I had planned on sharing a different post today but am switching things up a bit!  I recently tried Blue Apron for the first time, and as part of my subscription I had three free boxes I could share with friends.  I decided to offer them up to my Instagram friends (follow me here if you don’t already!)

I had probably 30 of you DM me within the first 5-10 minutes of posting the IG story asking for the free box.  First of all, you ladies really ARE my tribe…. y’all love free stuff as much as I do and I love it!  Second, I was bummed I couldn’t share more with you because everyone was so excited to try it.
