Chill Out This Summer With Frozen Yogurt & Smoothies From Red Mango

Red Mango Smoothies Trip

I don’t know about where you live, but it has been HOT AS BALLS here in New Jersey the last few weeks – which means my son and I have been forced to spend the bulk of our time indoors. BORING. Because we were both going a little stir crazy last night, I told Aidan …

Single Mom Drives: Kia Rio Review

Flat Tire

Remember how I mentioned I hit a rough patch recently? Half of it was caused by this… That’s a flat tire on my Nissan Sentra. But lucky for me a knight in shining Kia armor came to my rescue. (Yes even a fabulously independent single mom like me needs rescuing sometimes.) …Only my knight wasn’t …

My son and I think diamond rings, diamond bracelets, necklaces and earrings would be at the top of the “What Every Single Mom Deserves This Mother’s Day” list.

Wetter is Better: Single Ladies Love Lube Too


Lube. It’s a four letter word. A four letter word that many women are probably too embarrassed to use. Both literally and figuratively. Sucks to be you, women having dry and unfulfilling sex. I’m going to let you in on a little secret, ladies: Wetter is better. Whether you’re alone or with a partner, sex with …

Blissful Shrinking: FaceFX Irons Away Wrinkles!

Mely Wrinkles

A few weeks ago I was gifted a FaceFX anti-aging device and have been hooked on ironing away my wrinkles ever since. I know what you’re thinking… “Mely, you’re so young and vivacious! Surely a woman like you doesn’t have to worry about anti-aging treatments?” Truth is, even my deal with the bacon-devil has not …

The Kiss Our Sass Party Powered By A Dream Come True


  Four months ago I had a dream about throwing a party during BlogHer 2011 for my fellow single bloggers. The idea for this party never stemmed from a desire for fame, to promote myself, or to even make money. Simply put, I wanted to do something nice. Because the truth is, underneath all the sass …

Once upon a time there was a beautiful, potty-mouthed, bacon-loving blogger named Mely (That’s me), who fatefully met a snarky, fabulous, fellow single mom and blogger named Jamie(@SnglMomSurvives). In each other they found a wingbitch for life. (No, not like that. Not that there’s anything wrong with that.) They both scrimped and saved for the …
