2017 Ultimate HEALTHY LIVING Bundle Review – why I’m not buying this one

For the past couple years, I’ve reviewed several of the Ultimate Bundles (see here for my list of other bundle reviews), the two biggest each year being the Homemaking bundle in the spring and the Healthy Living bundle in the fall. However, this time around – and since I pride myself on being extremely honest in this blog (and not just using it to try to make money) – I decided not write a 2017 Healthy Living bundle review. Because I decided not to buy it. 

Here’s why I’m not buying the 2017 Healthy Living Bundle: Read more…

2017 PARENTING Super Bundle Review – I kind of like this one :)

When I first saw that there was going to be a “Parenting” Super Bundle, I was kind of lie ‘eh’. I’m not especially fond of being reminded of all the things I should improve on as a parent, ha ha. When it was announced what would be in the bundle, I also wasn’t particularly impressed by the bonuses (which are usually my favorite part). And then, there was a whole “Faith” section (which is my biggest hangup of the Homemaking bundle, as it isn’t necessarily a good fit for everyone).  So overall, I wasn’t sure what to do.

BUT. Then the thought of the bundle rolled itself around in my mind. And I google searched some of the resources and decided I wanted them. And there was a Homeschool section–something that I’m actually currently looking for resources on. And…I figured what the heck. I could do another bundle review to make me feel like it was worth it. So I bought it. Read more…

Rambling Ronni: I’m sorry I talk about being pregnant so much.

It took KP and I two years before I got pregnant with my first child. There was a lot of emotion and frustration and impatience and stress during that time time of trying so that when I did end up pregnant, I tried to be ultra-sensitive to anyone else who might still be trying to conceive. I hardly ever talked about the daily realities of being pregnant. I tried to never complain. I felt almost like i wasn’t “allowed” to. After all, I should be so happy to be pregnant – and I was – that I felt guilty ever being negative about anything.  Read more…

Are the Ultimate Bundles Legit? Scam? Amazing deal? Or marketing ploy?

So a blogger you follow is raving about this “Ultimate Bundle” thing. But you’re skeptical (and as you should be! Good for you, using discernment before jumping on bandwagons!) and you searched “ultimate homemaking/ healthy living/ essential oil/ photography/ whatever bundle reviews” or perhaps just “ultimate bundles review” and ended up here.

If so, welcome! – you’ve landed at the right place. Before becoming a blogger myself, I too saw these bundles and wondered what they were all about. I’m here to give you my honest-to-goodness lowdown on these bundles. The good, the bad, and the ugly.  Read more…

When Rocksbox Goes Bad: What Happens If You Break a Piece and/or Get a Rocksbox You Hate

3/25/17 note: I originally wrote the below post back about “When Rocksbox Goes Bad” in Oct. ’16, but never added pictures and it just sat in my drafts folder (along with sadly many other posts abandoned for one reason or another). I’m going through my drafts folder now, trying to throw some of them out into the light of day to see what comes from them. Enjoy. But sorry I’m just now posting too. Read more…
