Thanks for my #SparkleVoxBox!

I received my Sparkle VoxBox weeks before Halloween, and I thought it only came with three products. I thought I would use the lashes for my costume, but I was so tired from a crazy day at work that I barely put any effort into that evening. I'm grateful that I had some Numi Tea to relax. Our favorite product from this "three-item box" was the Garnier Sulfate Free Cleanser. Believe it or not, my 9-year-old (10 in 3 weeks... what?!) is suffering from acne. It started very recently, but she's already come home crying because some jerk (a dumb boy) is making fun of her. We tried two cleansers so far and no results. With Garnier's new face … [Read more...]

Top 5 Pinterest Finds {May}

I slacked since my last post. I remembered my monthly Pinterest commitment, but forgot again immediately after.  But I am here within reasonable limits, so without further ado...   Top left, clcokwise: 1 // EOY Desk Arrangement // I used this for my last week of school and it worked rather well because I could easily see all students and keep good proximity control. I might try it again for the beginning of this year. 2 // DIY Fidget Spinners // Fidget spinners are soo annoying right now. I have taken more of these than anything else. Well, I lie... I actually recycled more plastic water bottles than anything else... 3 … [Read more...]

Top 5 Pinterest Finds {April}

I haven't found myself with a whole lot of free time lately, and I admit I'm super stressed most of my days. However, I still catalog all my favorite finds on Pinterest and I always pull from there when I find myself needing to create something to call my own. Since I'm attempting to ease back into blogging, I want to see if this idea for my "Top 5 Pins" sticks. So here's my top list from my pins in April. Top left, clockwise: 1 // All-Natural Protective Paw Wax // I added this because I made my sister's dog some protective paw wax over Christmas, and when I came across this recipe I thought it sounded a lot better. I don't have … [Read more...]

How to Switch from GoDaddy to a New Host

A brief history of Atta Mama: I started on Blogger in January of 2012. I purchased a domain name through GoDaddy, eventually. In 2013 Blogelina was offering free hosting for her subscribers. As an amazing intro into the world of blogging I trusted the products she endorsed and I jumped on board. Then I moved to Wordpress and rebranded into the Atta Mama blog you see today. In 2014 I applied a coupon and simply renewed my hosting plan. I wound up getting it pretty cheap and had no outstanding issues, however there was always a haunting feeling that in order to grow I needed to switch to a better hosting company. I'll tell you what was … [Read more...]

Introducing Earthly Educator {Clueless Momma Designs Giveaway}

In case you are unaware, I am currently working on my Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education. I attend classes online and I'm nearing the end so it's all getting very exciting! I'm starting to work with children, and I'm getting comfortable in the classroom. One of the many things I've learned during my work towards this degree is that an effective teacher puts effort into reflecting on his or her lessons. There are several ways to do this and it is unique to the teacher. I've decided to take my love for blogging and apply it to this new stepping stone in my life. I introduce to you Earthly Educator! This website is very much a baby … [Read more...]

Goodbye 2013. Hello 2014!

Another year goes by. It seems to always go by so fast when you try and take a look at in retrospect. I made a lot of transitions in 2013 and 2014 is already proving to be a jam-packed year of working hard, having fun, and living better. Let's take a look at what went on and what is to come. The most popular posts in 2013 were... How to make your own hands free nursing bra on the cheap - This post actually almost didn't exist. I was told that it was so simple and common knowledge that there wasn't a place for such a tutorial on the internet. But with supplies you most likely already have on hand, you can pump hands free using this simple … [Read more...]


Welcome to the new blog! Atta Mama is a clean slate for me in the world of blogging. I have transferred all the content from Shary Loves You for the sake of keeping track of my past experiences.

Our family also moved to a new area of central Florida, and so I would like to take this opportunity to live a happier life. This blog will still do product reviews and occasional giveaways, however a majority of the content will be authentic experiences with my transitions in my personal life. Some things to look forward to are my adjustments back to green living and … [Read more...]

Moving to WordPress

My family did a big move yesterday. Thankfully our new home isn't too far away and that my amazing boyfriend has some wonderful friends to come help. We're very excited to be out of our old complex and we've all decided to make other changes in our lives to refelct our excitment for the future. Though I have a lot of personal goals I would like to work on for my family and my home, my blog has been something I have struggled with off and on since the beginning. The lovely Jessica of Lilipop Designs is giving Shary Loves You a makeover. Excuse the mess for the next couple of days, and I hope you're pleased with the changes!   … [Read more...]
