A Few of My Favorite Things…

Every once in awhile I find a product and I can’t wait to share it with everyone! I’ve been saving them all up for one blog post. Here they are:


My Stethoscope Case

All my LPN students have a stethoscope case. I didn’t really see the need until I started traveling between my regular job in the ER and then teaching clinicals at another facility. Now I absolutely love it! I now have a place to keep my name tags, pens, scissors, pocket book and chapstick so I’m ready to go no matter which job I’m showing up to! It also eliminates the need to rummage through all the pockets in my bag to find everything I need.

To my sewing readers – could you store some type of sewing/stitching supplies you don’t want floating around in your to go bag?

Vasagle Shoe Rack

Here is a real picture of my real entry way. Please note it is not Pinterest worthy BUT my shoes are ALL PICKED UP thanks to my new shoe rack!

Now you have heard of this brand before, I’ve mentioned it in previous blog posts. I also have a Vasagle computer desk and I will continue buying this brand!

First of all, all the pieces match: black details with the same wood top. Second of all, Craig says they are so easy to assemble. Third of all, they have so many options! Fourth of all, you can’t beat the price tag!

The boys had a ton of fun putting it together – Carver LOVES to help Craig with his projects!

He couldn’t WAIT to fill it with shoes. In fact, he moved it all the way to the kitchen himself and started putting shoes on it as soon as it was built!

My only complaint is that after all the shoes were cleared out of the bottom of our closet, I realized how much space is in the closet. Then I realized that the shoe rack could fit INSIDE the closet and wouldn’t have to take up space in the kitchen! Then I got sad because it is just too pretty to hide in the closet! I decided to keep it out for now until I find another Vasagle entry way piece to replace it.

If you’re not in the market for a desk or a shoe rack check out the other furniture they have for sale! The quality is superb. I can’t say enough good things about my purchases from this brand! Check out this shelf! It is next on my list!

Jenna Kutcher’s Lightroom Presets

So if you have ever dabbled in the self help/entrepreneur world, you’ve heard of Jenna Kutcher and her incredible Goal Digger Podcast. Jenna has several products, courses and tools but I couldn’t resist her adobe lightroom presets.

Lightroom is a tool I use to edit my photos before I post them. Instead of adding a heavy filter I purchased Jenna’s one of a kind presets to give a cohesive glow to all images I post. This obviously isn’t for everyone but for my fellow bloggers/influencers, I highly recommend.

The total package was $34. After a week of presetting my images, I can tell you it was worth every penny. See for yourself:

If you aren’t looking for a stellar set of presets, check out Jenna’s podcast called Goal Digger and you’ll thank me later.


Now I’m surveying all of my blog readers for recommendations. I have a few things I’m looking for:

A BRA! You guys, I have such a high rib cage. I had NO IDEA that was a thing that existed but someone described to me what it is like to have a high rib cage and I was like YES! I don’t understand how women wear bras every day. I just don’t get it. If I have a “real bra” on, the only thing I can think about is getting it OFF. I live in sports bras essentially. I didn’t know that I was different.

I honestly need bras that are about 42 inches around but I can hardly fill a B cup. Unfortunately, 42B bras hardly exist. I’ve tried third love, still not far enough around and not comfortable even with extenders. I need a thin strap preferably with no wire. Essentially, I don’t want to wear a bra. I’ve honestly been wearing a nursing tank top that I love – 95% nylon and 5% spandex. The straps are just too thick and bulky I can’t wear it with a tank top. Which leads me to my next inquiry:

I want a stellar tank top. I wouldn’t mind a shaper tank top. I would like some compression. A built in bra would be even better because – ahem – see previous paragraph, I’ve not been blessed on the bosom side of life.


There you have it folks! A few recommendations from me and now I need a few from you! GO!

    I found comfy bras at walmart. They are like tshirts with small straps. 3 for 10 bucks. I think they are Hanes if i remember. No buckles. Can wear all day. Comes in t backs. Wide straps and skinny straps. In the size you require. Best of all cheap and comfy

      I’ve never heard of a high rib cage but yes I need one bigger around with a b cup. Tried extenders but the straps fall down. I’ll be watching your recommendations.

    Find out the nearest place that actually fits bras. Not the department stores. Usually, they sell mastectomy bras, nursing bras, and so on. Drive miles/hours if you have to; it will be worth it. Fabulous place in Quincy, IL where I go but it’s a bit far for you. I walked into the Silhouette Shop and told the clerk I was long waisted, bras never stayed down. I hated wide straps because they dig in, wear a 36DD, and wanted an underwire. In 10 minutes she had found 7 styles, was adjusted the straps for me, and found 2 more because I was “really long waisted” and needed a DDD. She even reminded me that you need to get your boobs into the cup for a good fit. I found 3 that fit well and 1 has become my go to. It ain’t cheap, Honey, but it’s worth every penny. I don’t even know I have a bra on most of the time. I do cheat and find them once in a while cheaper online but try to support my shop.

    Actually, you were blessed in the bosom department!! I had my 36GG reduced to 36C…that’s a blessing to be smaller! I also HATE wearing bras, so I’m ordering a couple of the VS ones to give me something to wear besides sports bras – and I only wear those when I have to leave the house!!
