Easy Cream Cheese Marble Brownies + #BrownieBonanza Giveaway

I really enjoy making sweet treats from scratch, but sometimes a few shortcuts aren’t bad either. This was definitely the case when I made brownies this weekend. I’ve been so busy, but wanted to treat my family to something fun and tasty, so I pulled out all the shortcuts I could to make some Easy Cream Cheese Marble Brownies.

The first shortcut? Using a box brownie mix. I have no shame in admitting that I actually save money and time by sometimes using a box brownie mix. But the taste is still there so my family gets to enjoy the chocolatey treat all the same. Whether you’re loyal to baking from scratch, or use a box brownie mix, there is no judgment here.

The second shortcut? My new Red Copper Brownie Bonanza from BulbHead. Ya’ll! This is a total game changer when it comes to baking brownies. You will never again have to hear your kids complaining about the other one got a bigger piece of brownie because with the Brownie Bonanza, each and every brownie is the same size. And not only that, it’s so simple to get these perfect brownies at no extra effort from you.

Just how does Brownie Bonanza give you the perfect brownies each and every time? Let me show you.

Easy Cream Cheese Marble Brownies + #BrownieBonanza Giveaway
Brownie Bonanza comes in 4 pieces – pan, tray, grid, and cooling stand (not shown).

Simply place the tray into the pan, and for my Easy Cream Cheese Marble Brownies, mix up the box brownie mix per the box instructions and pour it over the tray.

Then mix up the cream cheese topping (full recipe below), dollop spoonfuls atop the brownie mix, and swirl it around. Swirl it up/down, left/right, around in swirls, however you want to.

Now, this is where the magic happens. Insert the grid for those perfect sized brownies and bake according to the box instructions.

When the brownies are done baking, remove them from the oven and let them cool. Only remove the grid once the brownies have cooled down. Aside from touching to know they’re cool, you’ll also notice the outsides of the brownies separate from the grid.

The ceramic nonstick, anti-scratch surface is one of the fun features of the Brownie Bonanza. The grid slides right out, leaving you with 18 perfectly sized brownies. I guess I should also mention that even though it’s a nonstick surface, I still took extra precaution and sprayed the pan and grid with nonstick spray.

Just look at those brownies! We’ve already finished off the ones I made over the weekend, but I think I need to make some more.

To make serving just as easy, place the cooling rack underneath the pan/tray and the tray of brownies will separate from the pan. Now all that’s left to do is enjoy!

Wigs Are an Easy Way to Change up Your Hairstyle #BlackHairspray

Let’s talk about hair changes for a minute. I have always been one to sit on hair changes for weeks, months, and sometimes even years. I can easily come up with a fun new do, but actually taking the plunge and making it happen, that’s another story. Are you the same way?

With short human hair wigs from Black Hairspray, changing your hairstyle is as easy as ever. Black Hairspray offers a large array of fun and beautiful short human hair wigs. Whether you’re looking for something curly, wavy, or straight. Black, auburn, blonde, or a fun color like purple (I’ve had purple hair before). Black Hairspray has got it all.

Wigs Are an Easy Way to Change up Your Hairstyle #BlackHairspray

My favorite thing about wigs is that you don’t have to alter your own hair when you want a change. Wigs allow the freedom to go from one color today to another color tomorrow, or from straight hair today to wavy hair tomorrow, and without all the time consuming and chemical-filled processes of making such changes.

Since the wigs at Black Hairspray are 100% human hair you’re getting nothing but the best in quality, along with a truly natural look, and at amazingly affordable prices. What’s not to love?

Not sure you’re the right customer for Black Hairspray? Guess again! Black Hairspray has clients ranging from professional stylists, to working moms, students and beyond. So why not take a look and choose your next hairstyle?

Have you ever tried a wig?

How to Travel in Comfort #Airplus

Traveling can be fun and exciting, but also pretty tiring. Follow these tips on how to travel in comfort and you'll return home revived and ready to go. #travel #airplus
~Thank you to Airplus for providing product for review. As always, opinions are still 100% my own. This post also contains affiliate links, in which I will receive a small commission for your purchase.~

Have you started crossing destinations off your travel bucket list? If so, I’m sure you’ve realized that traveling can put you outside of your comfort zone, both mentally and physically. While it’s nice to see and visit places near and far, the physical strains can be quite tiring.

I’m the type of person who wants to see and do everything imaginably possible wherever I go. So whether it’s a personal vacation or traveling for business, my body is always hurting when I return home. With that being said, I’ve learned a trick or two about how to travel in comfort so that when I get back, I’m not glued to the pillow recovering before getting back into my usual routine.

Take Only the Essentials

Traveling can be fun and exciting, but also pretty tiring. Follow these tips on how to travel in comfort and you'll return home revived and ready to go. #travel #airplus

I will be the first to admit that on a three day trip, I pack like I’ll be away for a week. You never know what you might do or need while traveling, right? But I’ve slowly learned that really trying to narrow down my luggage to just the necessities will not only save me a little sanity when packing, but it’s less weight I have to lug around. Toting lighter luggage is much easier on my body.

Don’t Skip Out on Sleeping Accommodations

Traveling can be fun and exciting, but also pretty tiring. Follow these tips on how to travel in comfort and you'll return home revived and ready to go. #travel #airplus

If you’re trying to travel on a budget, skipping out on comfortable sleeping accommodations may be a go-to for you. And it makes sense if you’re not going to be in your room other than to sleep. But this can take a major toll on how you feel day after day. Just like at home, if you’re bed isn’t comfortable and you don’t get the rest you need, your travel experience will suffer and so will your body.




Care for Your Feet

Traveling can be fun and exciting, but also pretty tiring. Follow these tips on how to travel in comfort and you'll return home revived and ready to go. #travel #airplus

I don’t know about you, but when I travel I do a LOT of walking and boy, do my feet feel the wrath. Don’t get me wrong, I occasionally take a cab or call an Uber, but when you’re exploring a new place, it’s the little hole in the wall restaurants and stores that make it all worthwhile.

To keep my feet comfortable during the trip and ready to go when I get home, I turn to Airplus. Airplus, a pioneer in unique, comfortable and affordable foot care accessories has everything you need to care for your feet while traveling.

Traveling can be fun and exciting, but also pretty tiring. Follow these tips on how to travel in comfort and you'll return home revived and ready to go. #travel #airplus

I have had plantar fasciitis problems for a few years now and with the help of Airplus Plantar Fascia Orthotics, I’m able to walk for long periods of time in some otherwise uncomfortable shoes, and my feet feel so much better afterwards.

While traveling, I also like to take along my Airplus Aloe Infused Socks. I may or may not be wearing them right now (I totally am). At the end of the day, these babies are great for a little R&R. They’re comfy, ultra-moisturizing, and have a soothing texture. Ahhhh, bliss for my feet.

Traveling can be fun and exciting, but also pretty tiring. Follow these tips on how to travel in comfort and you'll return home revived and ready to go. #travel #airplus

If I’m being honest, I don’t only use Airplus when traveling because they’re also great for everyday use. And I’m not the only one. My boyfriend uses them daily for his commute to and from work. We live in New Jersey, just across the river from New York City. He works in NYC and commutes daily.

His commute consists of walking to the bus stop, taking the bus to the train, taking the train as close as he can to work, and then walking the rest of the way. On top of that he walks anywhere he needs to go during the day, but he never leaves home without Airplus Memory Plus Insoles in his shoes.

Stay Hydrated

Traveling can be fun and exciting, but also pretty tiring. Follow these tips on how to travel in comfort and you'll return home revived and ready to go. #travel #airplus

While traveling, when you’re out and about you don’t want to forget about hydration. Right now, in the middle of summer, the weather is insanely hot. I can’t even walk a block down the street without a few drops of sweat rolling down my face. This doesn’t change just because you’re visiting some place new. Keep a bottle of water handy, or travel with a reusable bottle so you can fill up when you need to. And this goes for cooler weather, too. Don’t be left in the cold without the ability to quench your traveling thirst.

So no matter where your travels take you, make sure you’re set for a comfortable trip and comfortable return back to your usual routine.

Do you have any travel plans in the near future?

Naturally & Easily Repel Ants Indoors

Naturally & Easily Repel Ants Indoors

~This post contains affiliate links, in which I will receive a small commission for your purchase.~

Friday morning I woke up to find an army (or two) of ants swarming my living room side table. They were all over my computer, all over the table top, climbing up and down the table leg, marching into my kids toy room, just coming and going as they please right from under the corner of the door frame.

My son had left out some uneaten pizza the night before. *insert a hard eye roll*

Naturally & Easily Repel Ants IndoorsNeedless to say, I freaked the heck out. I tried wiping them up with a dish rag, but that just made the problem worse. Now they were all over my kitchen sick. Agh! I put my shoes on and was ready to walk out the door to go get something for ants, but I stopped in my tracks.

I don’t know why I remember this, but when I was younger and my brother was a toddler, he got into some ant gel or some kind of product my mom had set on a window seal. He stuck his finger in it and proceeded to put it in his mouth. Ya know, like kids are supposed to do. Well, he ended up being taken to the hospital.

This memory is what stopped me from just jolting out the door to find the nearest ant killer I could. Ant products can be very toxic and I didn’t want my kids to unknowingly get into something that could harm them. I mean, these ants were right where we hang out every day so there’s no doubt one of my kids would touch something they shouldn’t be.

I decided to take a moment to do a little online research and I’m so glad I did. I found a completely natural way to rid my home of these pesky, pizza loving ants. The best part? I already had what I needed at home (Yay for saving money!) and IT WORKED!




Naturally & Easily Repel Ants Indoors

So what is this secret ant repellant that’s natural and easy? Peppermint and tea tree oil.

My online research brought me to understand that when an ant finds food, it lets off pheromones or a scent so that other ants can follow its path to the food. Well, there’s no doubt in my mind that this is exactly what happened with the uneaten pizza. I wish I had taken a picture so you could see just how many ants there were and they were sticking pretty tightly to a single path. Ugh! I’m itchy just thinking about it.

I read that peppermint and tea tree oil blocks the pheromones, causing the ants to lose their way. So, what do I have to lose? It’s natural, sounds pretty easy to try, I have the oils already. Why not give it a go? I decided to use both oils to see how well they would work. I used peppermint around the kitchen sink, and tea tree oil around the toy room and the side table.

Naturally & Easily Repel Ants Indoors

I simply placed a few drops off oil on a cotton pad and wiped the inside and outside rim of the sink. And for the toy room, I wiped the perimeter of the room, the door frame, and then the side table right outside the door. And just to be on the safe side, I left a clean cotton pad with a few drops on the back of the sink and in the corner of the room.

I immediately noticed a difference. There were no more ants coming and going from under the door frame, which is where they were originating from. There were a few stragglers that had wandered into the middle of the room, but aside from that we were officially ant free.

It’s now five days later and I still haven’t seen an ant even peep from under the door frame. Seeing is believing and I am a firm believer that peppermint and tea tree oil is the best natural way to repeal ants indoors. And if you’re kids touch the cotton pads, the oils aren’t going to harm them.

Natural? Check!

Easy? Check!

Safe? Check!

Effective? Check!

And another perk is your home will smell pretty nice, too. Peppermint and tea tree oil for the win!

Have you ever tried this method for repelling ants?

*I am not an expert in pest control and this method is simply I found to work in my home. If you have a serious infestation, please call a professional.
