Talkback Thursday with MamaBreak!


Each week, MamaBreak asks the same questions of a mom-preneuer! This week we are talking to the owner of burlap & grace. We reviewed burlap & grace HERE, and they even sponsored a giveaway! 

burlap & grace makes some amazing headbands, hair clips, and hats . . . and all at prices we can afford!


1. What inspired you to create burlap & grace?
--The desire to have my own small business. The problem is I have so many ideas and passions that it is hard to pin one down but for now, at this point in our life this fell into place nicely. Burlap & grace is actually a event planning business and while waiting to fill my calender with events I started making hair accessories!!

2. How do you balance work and family?
--- I can not lie..its difficult. On my really busy days I really try to take breaks often to sit and read a book or have a mini picnic with my kids. I even let them climb up and help me sometimes....the key is not to lose focus on the reason you started your business. Mine was and is to be home with my kids.

3. What advice would you give to other women starting their own company?
--Don't give up!!! There are some lows sometimes but the highs are so worth hanging in there! And stay connected with people that you meet..I have met some amazing people through b&g!

4. Who has inspired you most in creating burlap & grace?
--There are so many people that have supported me and inspired me to follow my dreams...my husband, parents, family, many friends but I have to say I have had a couple of really dear friends of mine that have really..I guess I would say "made" me do this haha! One that helped me start up b&g and gave me so many encouraging talks and a few hard ones that set me straight! (gotta love a good friend like that!!) and one friend that has stood by me through many things in my adult life.

5. Is there any exciting news about burlap & grace you want to share?
 -- There will be lots of exciting things coming up with burlap & grace!!! We offer event planning for all types of events, there will be lots of new hair accessories coming up for the holidays and definitely some great deals..so be sure to stop by and "like" our page to stay up to date on what we have to offer!!

#HintingSeason with LG OLED at Best Buy

Thereviewer has been compensated in the form of a Best Buy Gift Card and/or received the product/service at a reduced price or for free.
#HintingSeason is upon us and if you're anything like me, only top-of-the-line electronics will do! The LG OLED TV at Best Buy is on the top of my wish list this year, but, LG's latest display technology is something you must see and experience to fathom the perfection of it's picture quality. 
The LG OLED TV delivers the ultimate display with Infinite Contrast ratio that measures and exhibits only the most radiant whites and profound blacks while offering a more lifelike viewing experience. This is something that has only been seen in our dreams until recently! OLED self-lighting pixels are able to switch on and off individually, offering the first infinite contrast ratio. But, that's not all... By increasing the color range and clarity, LG's exclusive 4 Color Pixel technology provides the most illuminated, vivid colors. LG's 4 …

Product Review for Pretzilla Pretzel Buns

So a couple of weeks ago my family and I decided to take a trip up to Whole Foods since we've never been to one and the only organic grocery store around here doesn't have a huge selection. We're walking through checking everything out and I came across these yummy looking soft pretzel buns. I have to say, the packaging is what really caught my eye but then I realized the buns didn't have salt on them so I was even more intrigued. We bought one package of the burger buns even though they were on sale 2 for $7. Two days later we decide to check them out. It wasn't until we had our sandwiches made that we realized they were moldy. We were completely bummed because this was something we've never tried before.

I went ahead and e-mailed the company Pretzilla to inform them of the mold, mind you it was the Saturday of memorial day weekend. I wasn't expecting a reply until at least Tuesday, but to my surprise, I was contacted back the following morning. The comp…

Rent College Textbooks and Save Up to 80%!

This is a "sponsored post." The company who sponsored it compensated me via a cash payment, gift, or something else of value. 

I recently went back to college to work on my Bachelor of Science degree for Nutrition. It's been about 7 years since I've had to purchase college textbooks and let me tell you, the prices have gone up dramatically! I registered for a Sociology class but had to drop it because I couldn't afford the book which was $239! That's outrageous!  I understand that I could always sell the book back to the school at the end of the semester, but, you and I both know that the colleges only offer you a fraction of what you paid. Plus, there was no way I could afford that book on top of my $200 Statistics book, graphing calculator, and two other textbooks needed for classes.  I like to save as much money as possible, especially on things I'll only be using for a short time. This is exactly why I'm using Campusbookrentals.com for the other two …
