20 Budget Friendly Summer Steals

By Andrea Robinson

Summer is here! Well, the unofficial start to summer that is but if you live in the desert like me, anything over 100 degrees warrants the start of summer. May and June in the valley of the sun aren’t the worst but as soon as late June rolls around and we push into July and…

Mother’s Day Gift Guide on a Budget

By Andrea Robinson

He’s had some heavy hearted and deeply sad calls recently.  And last weekend, on Valentine’s Day, he was on shift and called me…

Cue the song “Looking for love in all the wrong places” by Johnny Lee…do you have that tune in your head? Sorry if it’s stuck now but switch out love and it’s kind of an anthem to many of our lives. Looking for peace in all the wrong places…I know that was me for many…

In Some People’s Eyes You Will Never Be Enough and That is Okay and Here’s Why

Win Your Morning, Win Your Day…My 6 MUSTS That Set The Day.

By Andrea Robinson

I. LOVE. A. ROUTINE. In fact I don’t think I could have survived 14 years in morning TV without a routine. I definitely thrive with some order but have, over the last few years, relaxed a bit so I could really FEEL life and have some spontaneity and presence too. THAT was one thing missing.…
