How to Find the Balance Between Mother and Woman

Being a mom can take a toll on your mind and body. You’re constantly being chased in all different directions and being called upon to solve problems that your kids and husband raise to you. They think you’re wonder mom and while that’s a compliment, it’s also exhausting.

As a mom, it’s easy to become tired and burned out. You may feel guilty, but wishing for some alone time doesn’t make you a bad person, or worse, a bad mom. Instead, it’s what you need to do, to become a great one. Rather than become worn out, make time for yourself. Improve your health and well-being so that you can be the best mom possible. Here’s how to find the balance between being a mother and being a woman.

Treat yourself

Remember that you matter, and that you have needs too.

Five Ways to Improve Your Home Life

Your home life is important to your very well-being; from your house, your hobbies, to your friends and experiences. Your work life provides you with the money to have a home life, and the balance between the two is important. If your work life balance is out of kilter you can begin to feel unfulfilled by your role, and can even burn out. Focusing too much on your home life means you don’t have the money, success, or drive to improve. Focusing too much on your work will ensure that you have nothing else worth living for. Together, however, they unite for a wonderful and fulfilling life.
To improve your home life, follow these five steps:   

Planning Your Perfect Wedding Doesn't Have to Be Overwhelming

Planning a wedding can be one of the most fun, but also one of the most stressful times in a person's life. But, it doesn't have to be stressful!

Before I began thinking about our wedding, I remember being overwhelmed by the thought of all the different aspects of wedding planning.  There are so many details that go into planning! (And there was no Pinterest back then!)

Who would we get to cater it?  How many chairs would we need?

You Are 3 TED Talks Away From Your Dream Career

It’s time to slap you with a reality-checking fact: four out of five Americans don’t love their job. Of course, this number is so high that it may not have come as a shock to you in any way, in the same way Harvey Weinstein’s disgusting actions and attitudes toward women - and just people - probably didn’t shock anyone too much.

But just because you - and the rest of society - don’t love your job doesn’t mean you need to accept that this is the existence you are locked into. Oh no. Not at all. In fact, it should motivate you. It should be like a boot up the backside that sends you toward a career change, and it all starts with a few TED Talks that really tickle this matter silly.

And here are the best of the bunch:

In the Corn Maze! WW

Awww, corn mazes.  A Fall tradition along with pumpkin patches, warm apple cider and watching the leaves change.  Fall is a lot of people's favorite season.  That's obvious by the amount of posts they make about it!  Pumpkin Spice everything!  Bring. It. On! (They say)  Bonfires, football, sweatshirts, flannels, warm blankets.  The season really does have a lot to offer to warm the heart and soul.

I've never really done a lot of corn mazes.  I don't know if they just weren't that popular in Florida?  I mean at the time, we had a lot more orange groves than anything else.  Maybe they had a haunted orange grove?  Who knows!?!  So, this whole corn maze thing is not something that I'm as familiar with as most of the home-grown Ohioans.  Or any other kind of Midwesterner.

Corn mazes are fun, though.  I knew that the object was to find your way out. . . .

Successfully Circumventing Being Out of Work

Relaxing at home
Being out of work can mean a number of things. It can mean that you've been forced to leave your job and are currently seeking new employment. It could mean you have left your career voluntarily in search of a new direction in life.

However, no matter what being out of work means to you, you still have to circumvent it in some way or another. Read on to find out how.

The Best Careers in the Beauty Industry

The beauty industry is one of the largest and fastest growing in the world and skincare is the biggest branch of it. The global sales are expected to be more than $130 billion in just a few years. With beauty and image becoming more important to people year on year, the industry is a fairly safe one to get into and there are so many different job and business opportunities to satisfy most tastes.

There has also been a rise in self made beauty and skincare companies that have been started by bloggers and YouTubers that have come off the back of their online popularity. People often think that jobs in the beauty industry are limited to

Tools for a Quicker, Healthier Meal

If you've been working all day and then have to come home and cook - you're going to feel like you haven't been able to take a break yet! Let alone if you're trying to go in the healthy direction, (you can learn more ways to stay healthy on It's a given fact that taking time to prepare a healthy meal is a lot more effort than other options - like chicken nuggets and fries that you've just pulled out of the freezer! But in doing this, you are going to fall into a habit, and any kind of regime that you have going on will be lost.

The thing is though, cooking healthily doesn't have to be some super time-consuming task - well, at least not if you have the right tools.

Warming Up My Long Bohemian Dress for Fall

It is getting cooler and cooler here.  Actually, you never know what you're going to get.  It was 80 degrees two days ago.  Then a Fall storm blew in and brought us cooler weather. . . . . . like already in the 30s cooler weather.  

>>I received this dress from Top Tier Style for free to facilitate this style story.  <<

As in my last post about this cute bohemian dress, shown below

I'm not ready to give up my cute dresses just yet!  So here's how I plan to wear this one a little bit longer.

This dress is a little more revealing than I'm used to wearing.  I had the perfect black tank and black skinny jeans to wear underneath, though.   I love the high-low styling and the big ruffle on the bottom.  The peacock pattern is pretty cute, too.

I truthfully would always wear this dress with some kind of bottom underneath because the buttons go a little high for me, but it would be cute to throw on over a bathing suit in the Summer to go out for drinks.  In the Fall though, you can wear it with boots and a jacket.

And if it's not cool enough for a jacket, just throw a scarf around your shoulders and fly like the peacocks on the dress. . . . . . sorry, had to throw a little Quirky in there.
