October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, check out Glamulet

The Charms brand Glamulet was launched in 2014 to offer to every women a new range of trendy and elegant quality jewelry at an affordable price. We believe that every woman should be allowed to express herself and to feel pretty. We design glamorous Charms and bracelets and we use quality materials to manufacture them. Each woman can mix and match the Charms to create her own Bracelet. Glamulet empowers women by giving them affordable accessories to state their fashion sense, commemorate an event or symbolize a special meaning. Two years after its launch, Glamulet is working hard to spread this vision worldwide and to better the life of every woman.

October is breast cancer awareness month and I'm teaming up with Glamulet to help spread the word about #PinkOctober and let you all know that 50% of sales from every charm sold by Glamulet will be donated to breast cancer charities.  Unfortunately Breast Cancer has touched so many lives and will continue to until they find a cure "Right now breast cancer is at a tipping point. More women are surviving. But more are being diagnosed than ever before. And every 45 minutes, another woman dies from the disease." These are staggering statistics, and we need to work together to make a change.

Hi there :)

I know I seem to disappear for months at a time, I'm really sorry -_- Things will be more active around here soon, I promise :)

My Facebook page for the blog is updated pretty much daily with recipes and shared tips, take a look and give me a follow.

I'm preparing to move so things are a little hectic. After four years here the kid and I are moving in with my boyfriend where the kid will have his own room again, two cats and a dog on loan whenever we want (he belongs to the landlords). :) Pretty much anywhere we've lived hasn't been pet friendly, so it's nice to be able to have pets again.

I'm sure this isn't a shock to anyone that I hate moving, I don't know anyone who really does. This will be the 4th time I've ever moved and hopefully after this there will be just one more where we can finally set our roots down for good.

I'll be back in a few weeks once the move is all done and I'm settled back into a normal schedule... whatever that is, but I know it will be a lot less driving back and forth and that is always a good thing.

Well, this is different...

My kid is at college taking his summer classes, my honey is at work.... and I'm at the park.. blogging, or, something.  I took the day off work and after going out to breakfast with my best girls this morning I have the rest of the day to pretty much do nothing.  I've been up since 5am (I told you my son is taking summer classes at college, 2 1/2 hours away by train and his first class starts at 8:30, yeah -_-) I'm not much of a napper, I was sick with pneumonia over Christmastime and even then when I was sick I didn't sleep during the day.  I was going to bake some biscuits for my buddy Apollo, but it's too hot to turn on the oven and way too nice to just sit inside.

Today feels like summer, it's warm but it's  not humid at all and there's a nice breeze.  I'm parked at the park around the corner from my house sitting under a tree.  I was hoping for a spot at a picnic table, but there seems to be some end of the year thing here with a lot of schoolkids.  Oh well.. it's still a gorgeous day out :)

I guess walking backwards is a new thing? There are two ladies walking backwards around the loop.  Odd.  I have enough trouble walking in a straight line on a good day, I'd trip over my feet going backwards HA!

Well... back to nature for me now :)  Enjoy the rest of your day.

Chefs Cycle for No Kid Hungry

I'm a no kid hungry blogger and I can't imagine how hard it is for kids who struggle with hunger.  As a single mom I've struggled and in the past when times were especially tough I've sacrificed my own meals to make sure my kid had enough.  It's really hard knowing when there's not really enough food to go around and it's really something kids shouldn't ever have to be burdened with.

The sad fact is, the summer is the hardest on kids who rely on school meals and that's why the summer meal program was first started in 1968.  Still though, it's tough for kids in rural communities to get the nutrition they need over the summer and that's one of the things No Kid Hungry is working to change.

The No Kid Hungry Chef's Cycle is coming up This weekend!! ( Nearly 50 chefs and restaurant industry professionals are riding bikes 300 miles to raise funds and awareness for No Kid Hungry. The East Coast ride takes place June 7-9 and the West Coast ride happens June 14-16.

Chefs Cycle for No Kid Hungry

 For nearly 30 years, chefs and restaurants have served as our most ardent supporters raising millions to help end child hunger in America. Now, they are getting on their bikes from coast to coast to raise awareness and funds for No Kid Hungry. Nearly 50 chefs and restaurant industry professionals are riding from New York City to Washington, DC and Santa Barbara to San Diego. 300 miles each! Follow them as they ride - New York City to Washington, DC June 7-9 and Santa Barbara to San Diego June 14-16. And support their efforts by making a donation today or planning your own ride where you live.

Together we can make a difference.  Donate today or start a ride of your own.
