Ever wish someone would give an HONEST review of a product, car, or popular vacation spot? Show you the not-so-good parts, instead of just praising the brands and destinations? Yeah, I thought so. It’s what I do on November Sunflower.

I share my honest reviews, the good and the not-good, on products you’re interested in buying!

Heck, I’m still sleeping on my Cocoon by Sealy bed, and loving it. And my unfortunate fail with Cool Sculpting (spoiler alert: didn’t work well for me).

What's the worst part about cooking? You know, besides the actual cooking? For me, there's two things I hate: shopping and measuring everything out. After cooking, I canNOT stand cleaning up. However, that's a different post entirely. Mr. Sunflower hates when I enter a food store. As much as I save shopping online for everything for [...]

My love for office supplies is quite strong. Just the thought of a trip to an office supply store gets me very hot and bothered. All the folders, staplers, paper clips, notebooks, date books, office chairs and the best of the best: pens. Yes, pens. I have no problem stating I'm an office supply junkie. [...]

Music is probably the only thing in our family's life that unites us in ways we can't even understand. I'm not a musician, nor do I sing very well. However, there's something about music that calms me, and it can change my mood in a millisecond. I can get into the car in a crappy [...]

Both the kids are in many activities. Much of our time is spent waiting for one kid to finish up, so the other one can go, and vice versa. Waiting around can be a bit of a killer for The Boy. Keeping him entertained isn't the easiest thing in the world. However, his Nintendo 3DS [...]

I'm not a girl who wears make-up. I wear it when I have to, like for my wedding day. I have nothing against it. It also doesn't mean I don't like looking good. People always assume if you don't wear make-up, you don't care about your appearance. It's not true. I like feeling beautiful just [...]
