My Crafts Through The Years

This post was inspired by one of my lovely followers on Instagram @curlzandscrubs. I love to craft and over the years what I enjoy doing has changed. Now I usually stick to crocheting but I have done just about everything from making wreaths, candles, signs and picture frames. It started out as a hobby to create home decorations when I had a more limited budget but has turned into a passion. So much so that for a few years I even sold my crochet items on Etsy. I thought today would be a fun day to post about some crafts I have made through the years and reflect on my creations.

Target & Volumize Your Lashes: Lancôme Idole Mascara Review

It makes getting dressed simple and pieces fit together better. You can repeat pieces easier without someone noticing you are wearing the same piece of clothing.

What’s In My Nursing Bag

As a nurse I like to be prepared. When I was a new nurse grad I carried a lot of stuff with me. Honestly, it was too much and became overwhelming. Over the years and with having different jobs the requirements of what I needed have changed. I currently work as a clinic nurse and carry as little as possible.

Never Lose Your Essentials Again

**Disclaimer: Product has been gifted. Please be aware this post including my thoughts and review are my own.**

As a healthcare provider I am all about convenience that is smart, effective and practical. I take that same thought in my personal life as well as my professional life. If your like me I also have a tendency to misplace things like my lip balm. I tend to purchase them in packs of multiples and somehow lose half of them or find them in random places. In todays world it is not only lip balm but we are all carrying around hand sanitizer as an accessory.
