Let’s Talk About Bluemercury Beauty

My love for Bluemercury is no secret and I’ve been a fan of theirs for as long as I can remember. I initially fell in love with the store because they carry all my favorite brands in one place and the staff is extremely helpful and knowledgeable. Fast forward a few years and Bluemercury …

Kelly Nelson

My official title is mom. It was a decision I made before I even had kids. I was one of those annoying girls that thought she wanted to be a stay at home and didn’t want a career. It was probably a decision that shouldn’t have been made by a 24-year-old girl. Anyway, I loved that I did get to …

Codeverse’s Summer Coding Camp

It’s insane how quickly everything is changing around us. In my youth, when someone inquired about a future career choice I typically heard others respond that they wanted to be a veterinarian, doctor or maybe even a firefighter.
