Shark Rotator Professional Lift-Away Vacuum Review

by jessicaturner on March 24, 2015

My husband Matthew loves to vacuum. When we received a Shark Rotator vacuum to review, I asked him if he would be willing to write a review because like with our Shark Rocket, I knew he would be passionate and honest. I was right. I think he should do infomercials. If you are looking for […]

by jessicaturner on April 17, 2013

I’ve never been someone who liked foundation and didn’t start wearing it daily until about two years ago. I have freckles, but my skin is free of blemishes and even in tone (I know I’m lucky). But as I got older, I realized how important a good base was to ensuring your makeup lasted all […]


Laundry Confessions

by jessicaturner on November 29, 2012

This is my last month writing about my Maytag Bravos XL HE washer and dryer . As I have talked about this laundry series with other friends, the challenges are universal. There’s always too much.

by jessicaturner on October 17, 2012

Now that I have been using my Maytag Bravos XL for a few months, I have learned a few more things about it. I think it is hilarious that I am still intrigued by the washing machine. It is just SO different from any washing machine I have ever known. When it is running I […]
