What’s Your Bathroom Routine? #LetsTalkBums


Let's talk about bums, baby! This post might get a little personal, but hey we're adults, right? And besides, calling your backside a bum is too adorable to be scary. When it comes to bathroom routines I'm of the get in get out mentality. I don't need to be in there any longer than necessary. Richard likes to take his iPhone with him for his sit downs and Jake well, Jake spends more time in the bathroom than a teenage girl. He brings along his iPod, his phone, and a blue tooth speaker to make sure the entire neighborhood can hear his jams. Now to be fair, most of his time in there is spent on shaving and grooming, but a decent portion is bum related. Since I haven't figured out what the "three seashells" method is - kudos to those that get the reference - we've stuck with the usual toilet paper clean bum option. I have to admit though, there are days that I question if that's enough. The bottom line is I shouldn't have to wonder, I should know that I'm clean. I mean, I don't get … [Read more...]

Shelley Says – Halloween Fun


I haven't dressed up for Halloween in years, although this year I think my sister Mindy and I will be Sugar Skull faces. Sounds fun, right? I have something like this in mind or this... But this is REALLY about the kids. So, first up is Joshua. A while back I picked up costume at a yard sale and he loved it! It glows in the dark. He's going to wear a mask with it. Ewwww, scary. He will be the leader of the pack with Jake, my nephew. This mask seriously is creepy. I asked him what it is and since he's going to wear all black he said he's a "Vendeta in the shadows". Oh that's cool, Jake! Next up... Megan and Ashley. Megan is my little sister (14). The youngest of all four of us girls. She's so cute. She tells me, "Sis, I'll only be young once and I'm going to live it up and dress up for Halloween as long as I can." Her and Ashley are going to be "fifties chicks." They both have their poodle skirts, Megan's in satin pink and Ashley's in satin blue. Both of which I … [Read more...]

Shelley Says – VO5

Alright, I admit I use VO5 shampoo for more than just my hair. I use it as body wash, hand soap, and whatever else needs some VO5. It works fabulous, there are tons of "smell goods" (Island Coconut and Kiwi Lime Squeeze two of my favorite), but also a few more worth mentioning - Herbal Escapes Free me freesia, Tea Therapy Blackberry sage tea, Moisture Milks Strawberry and Cream and Silky Experience Shea Cashmere to choose from, (that's only a few) and it's only around a buck, give or take a few cents. This house always has at least two bottles of VO5 in both of our bathrooms at all times! And watch out if there is a sale on the already very inexpensive product or a coupon. Let's just say, I stay stocked up for a while when that happens. So I'm checking out this website VO5 Salon Series™ Archives - VO5 Haircare  and I notice VO5 offers men care products. I didn't know about this, but I’m fairly certain my husband sighs a little, each time he gets in the shower and his Irish Spring is … [Read more...]
