5 Music Documentaries Not To Miss on Netflix

I'm planning to watch these 5 music documentaries to hold me over until I can get to a live show this summer! All available to stream on Netflix.

I am proud to partner with Netflix to share my favorites and be part of this year’s #StreamTeam! Netflix has provided me with a free membership and device to stream. All opinions are my own. I’ve been thirsty for live music. The Coachella Valley Music and Art Festival and Stagecoach just wrapped – both in Indio and sort of close but I couldn’t get to either this year. Next month, local alternative radio station KROQ will host their annual Weenie {Read More}

Swap Your Soap: method

We're moving toward swapping out conventional products to environmentally friendly products. We love method. Read why their laundry soap is the best.

For weeks now, my daughter’s first grade class has been practicing songs for an Earth Day concert. She’s been learning the lyrics about ozone depletion and why styrofoam products are bad.  As a parent, the exciting part of the whole experience has been her genuine interest in what we can do as a family to reduce our environmental footprint. There’s sure been a whole lot of finger wagging, too. Especially when the water faucet runs long or if the recyclables aren’t in {Read More}

Remembering on Giving Day

It will be 25 years this November since I lost a childhood friend to cancer. We were in 10th grade and she was days from turning 16 years old when she passed. Mindy was beautiful. She was a ballet dancer and an honors student. She was so incredibly kind. Her family welcomed me in their home for consecutive weekend sleepovers where we would listen to Depeche Mode in heavy rotation on her CD player. We played with black eyeliner and {Read More}

I Won’t Try That Again

new weight loss drug called Contrave

Last fall I was in my doctor’s office with a list of problems only a hypochondriac could appreciate. Topping that list was my chronic fatigue, brain fog and my inability to lose any weight. My most bothersome symptoms raised enough red flags for her to explore more. She ordered a battery of blood tests, including thyroid, A1C, B-12, and vitamin D. The results from the blood tests were fairly unremarkable. My thyroid was normal, my A1c was sort of within {Read More}

Are You BRCA Aware?

Are you considering the BRCA genetic test? Read my experience and get more info about BRCA and why it is important to be aware.

I received $150 from AstraZeneca, and any opinions expressed by me are honest and reflect my actual experience. This is a sponsored post for SheSpeaks/AstraZeneca. These days I can hardly remember what we did over the weekend or that I need to grab milk from the store. But, for some reason I can remember a day years ago when a college classmate spoke about the discovery of the BRCA genes. It was the first time I had learned that there {Read More}

All Good Things Come To An End: Parenthood

Parenthood-season-5-finale-spoiler

Follow my blog with Bloglovin We know well that all good things must eventually come to an end. Parenthood was brilliant. Honest and heartwarming, tragic and heartbreaking. I expected to cry my eyes out throughout the finale but surprisingly held back the tears until the very end. With 12 minutes left of the episode, I texted a friend and said “I’m not crying yet” but montages set in the future kill me. Every time. Early last year, I was lucky enough to {Read More}
