    Goodbye 2018– Hello 2019

    Goodbye 2018– Hello 2019   I typically post a yearly recap on the blog on the last day of the year, but this time I decided to try things a little differently. I wanted to share our favorite memories and even some not so memorable things with everyone and share how much Product Review Cafe has grown in just 12 months.   I will start at the beginning: We rang in 2018 with a few friends and extended family. It was a great time but was the start of our youngest’s first ear infection which we thought was teething at the time. I remember being terrified when he started to…

    Why Student Loan Reform Would Help So Many

      Why Student Loan Reform Would Help So Many *Sponsored Post*     I spent many years in college pursuing a criminal justice degree at an in-state university but I was an at home student. I loved my time spent in college; that is until the bills started to pile up. I would get statements to show my loans but honestly like many others I didn’t really think about ever having to pay it back and thought that the payments would be more reasonable.

It involves many nights where I am awake working on the blog which you guys know to be called Product Review Cafe well after my boys and husband are in bed. I am usually answering emails from the moment my eyes open in the mornings until they should be closed.   I find that…

    #AmazonClosed– Are You Affected?

      #AmazonClosed– Are You Affected?   So on Monday I tried to do something I do several times a week– make a purchase on Amazon. Many of us do it and take for granted how easy it is, but we were out shopping and I saw something that I wanted to get for my husband, but found it cheaper on Amazon. I added the products to my cart, hit check out… you know the routine. I get a message that shocked me to my core and I felt sick to my stomach “Email Does Not Exist” Had I been hacked? Did some stranger have every bit of my personal information?…
