How to Magically Remove Soap Scum with No Scrubbing Required

Warning: Contains Graphic (Dirty Bathroom) Images

It’s grab-your-supper-and-eat-it-in-the-bathroom-so-you-can-stare-at-it clean.

“It’ll take that craft paint right off your window.”

“It worked wonders on the bathtub after pink dye leaked out of a piece of fun foam.”

“Baking soda is great, but it has nothing on vinegar.”

Turn Your Sunburn Into A Beautiful Bronze Glow Overnight

A Stinky, All-Natural Sunburn Cure For When You Forgot The SPF

***** I DO NOT RECOMMEND GETTING A SUNBURN TO GET A TAN. BE SUN SMART, PLEASE! *****

Ah, long weekends — the perfect opportunity to kick back, relax and enjoy some fun in the sun! But, no matter how careful you are... sunburns can and do happen. I accidentally got a sunburn on Saturday after spending more than seven hours on the beach, and the forecast for Sunday was hot and sunny. By the time I was ready to crawl into bed, my skin had turned from slightly pink to a bright shade of red and my mother was “tut-tutting” me all over the house.

5 Books to Read After Finishing 50 Shades of Grey

Angie Lynch is a Native Floridian without a tan, probably because she spends her days hard at work inside on the magical internet. For the past several years, Angie has worked way too hard at building clout as an influencer in food and margaritas as well as being a source for laughable pop culture commentary on her blog, A Whole Lot of Nothing. In addition to that nonsense, Angie recommends books on Smut Book Club, is a contributing writer to Mom.me, spreads the word of Awesome at We Know Awesome, and tries to be a very professional content creator for local business blogs. Stalk her properly on Twitter @alotofnothing and on Facebook.

 

Our new baby was just two weeks old when my husband had to leave for work overseas for five weeks. We all missed each other terribly.

Awareness of This Disease Could Save Your Child’s Life

Kawasaki Disease is the stuff of nightmares…but it doesn’t have to be.

Kawasaki Disease Awareness | YummyMummyClub.ca

When Carin’s two year-old son Isaiah came down with a fever, she didn’t worry at first. After all, he had just started preschool, and everyone knows preschools are petri dishes for viruses. There was no reason to suspect anything more. She treated his fever at home and kept a close eye on him. A few days later, the fever was still raging, so she took him to a walk-in-clinic, like any parent would. There, the doctor told her Isaiah had a virus, and he’d be better soon.
