How to clean white soled sneakers quickly


This post is sponsored by Dawn but the content and opinions expressed here are my own.


Everybody has their go-to pair of shoes. You know, the super comfortable, cute ones that just fit their personality and lifestyle. For me, that means more often than not, you’ll find me wearing sneakers. Like most people I know, I own multiple styles and types of sneakers I wear for different tasks. With the exception of my gardening sneaks, I care about how they look and try to keep them as clean as possible; especially if they are whited soled. I’ve recently discovered a cool cleaning hack where I can clean my favorite white soled sneakers quickly in less than 15 minutes with no drying time needed.

Do615 a fun way to make the most of Nashville


When my husband and I moved to Nashville in the 90’s, downtown was a full on, old school country music scene. From the honky-tonks, Printer’s Alley and record label headquarters, it really was country. Today, you won't see the long gone Hard Rock Cafe and Fuddruckers of the 90's, you'll see high rises and construction sites and traffic!  To say Music City has changed in an understatement. Nashville has grown, and continues to grow at such an alarming pace that even locals like us need help navigating our day trips into Nashville, so today I’m sharing a new to me guide called Do615, this website is a fun way to make the most of a Nashville trip whether you have a day or a week.

Easy Sunglasses hack to replace lost screws


We’ve all been there. We put on our favorite pair of sunglasses and notice one arm feels lose. We tell ourselves we will tighten up the hinge or screw when we get done doing the thing we put our sunglasses on to do, but truth is, most of us will simply forget to do that until we lose the screw! Today, I’m sharing an easy hack to replace lost sunglasses or any eyeglass screws in under three minutes, thanks to my partnership with SnapIt. And because it’s Friday, we’ve got a giveaway for you too!

Five ways to celebrate and have a Shamrockin’ St. Patrick’s Day


Disclosure: Catholic Central provided me with product in giveaway to facilitate this post. The opinions I share are my own.

At this time of year, we all become a wee bit Irish (or more Irish!) we bring on all things green! We start looking for leprechauns, pots of gold at the end of each rainbow, and four leaf clovers too.  Even though I’m Scottish, I still feel a certain pull towards Saint Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland and all the wonderful ways to celebrate the day. Much like Memorial Day weekend is the unofficial start of our summer here at casa Kinsman, St. Patrick’s Day is our unofficial start of spring. We have a wonderful Shamrockin’ St. Patrick’s Day and want you to as well, so read on for five ways to celebrate the day and win a Saint Patrick's Day Feast Kit!

Did you fancy yourself a super sleuth as a teen? My friends and I sure did back in the day, thanks in large part to our love of Nancy Drew books! Nancy showed us that girls could be just as good as boys at solving mysteries. Did I just call out the Hardy Boys? Maybe, just a little. If you love a good mystery, and really, who doesn’t?; you are going to love the new live action Nancy Drew and the Hidden Staircase movie coming to theaters March 15, 2019. The iconic mystery solving teenager from the classic Nancy Drew books is back with an all-new feature length film that will keep you guessing until the very end!

10 Tips to Rock St. Valentine's at home and a giveaway

Happy Friday friends! As I sit down to write this fun post, I realized that this is the last weekend we have before Valentine’s Day and I’m feeling a little behind in my preparations. Now, let me state right here at the beginning of my post that I don’t decorate our home for this celebration like I used to when the kids were little, so that makes things a little easier, but I still have shopping to do for my husband and teen daughters. We always include them in our Valentine’s Day celebrations to show them extra love and besides, I think that’s what Saint Valentine, the patron of love, young people and happy marriage wants us to do. Read on for tips to rock this Valentine’s Day and enter to win a fabulous St. Valentine Love Kit.

Help provide a new beginning for Pakistani women through education


The first month of the new year is slowly ending and while I was reflecting on my accomplishments to date, I realized that while I’ve been pouring into my family and home, (which is as it should be), I haven’t really gotten back into full work mode, especially when it comes to sharing the good works from Trades of Hope, the company that won my heart during the rush leading up to Christmas. I’d like to change that today by sharing our New Beginnings Hostess Incentive, which gives you a way to help provide a new beginning for Pakistani women through education.
