Processed Free - Don't Mess with Mama.com

One burning question I’m asked all the time by family and friends: What’s the big deal with processed foods? Why do I have to cut it out?

GIVEAWAY: The Skintervention Guide – Natural Solutions for Acne and Other Skin Issues ($37 value)

Skintervention Guide - Natural Acne Solution - Don't Mess with Mama.com

You’ve probably heard me talk about my struggle with acne before. It started as a teenager with embarrassing acne that plagued my high school years – so much that I caked on foundation and powder to cover it up. It continued well into my 20s until I started taking birth control, which helped me for […]

Naked Clean – Green House Cleaning Service in San Diego

Green Clean Kitchen

I have a confession: I’ve never had a house cleaner before. I’ve always wanted one but never hired one either for budget reasons or  just playing a bit of the mom martyr who thinks she can do everything (but really can’t). As my husband’s back issues have gotten a bit worse, I decided to finally […]

What I Wish I Knew About Sex After Childbirth

What I Wish I Knew About Sex After Childbirth - Don't Mess with Mama.com

Honestly, I wish someone pulled me aside after I had my first son and explained to me that my libido was going to take a nosedive. Or that sex was going to be uncomfortable. Or that laughing too hard would make me pee my pants – literally. More importantly, I wish someone told me all […]

DivaCup – Go Green with Your Period (Seriously)

The DivaCup Review - Don't Mess with Mama.com

This post is brought to you by The DivaCup.  I consider myself pretty open minded when it comes to going green. Save a recycled bottle from the trash? No problem. Make my own kombucha? A little weird, but it turned out great. Make my own laundry detergent? Piece of cake. But go green with my […]

The Ultimate Christmas Show (abridged) at The San Diego REPertory Theatre

Ultimate Christmas Show San Diego REP

I cannot believe I’ve lived in San Diego for nearly 14 years and have never made it out to The San Diego REPertory Theatre. I’ve been to theatrical productions in San Diego – from musicals to drama to comedy and improv, yet I never really knew about San Diego REP. Located in downtown San Diego […]

Book Review: Reflected in You (Crossfire Series by Sylvia Day) Gets Darker for Eva and Gideon

DMWM-disclosure-booksponsored

As many of you know, I’m a huge Fifty Shades of Grey fan. Like obsessive to the point I’ve read the books over and over. And I often read similar books to give me a vacation from Christian Grey. And I fully admit it, I love erotica romance. Damn you, Twilight and Sookie Stackhouse, for […]
