Transformation Tuesday, Home Edition

It’s taken me WAY too long to share this (my apologies), but this past Winter I dove out of my comfort zone into a decent size home project and I’ve been super excited to share the details…even if it has taken me a while to get around to it, ha! In short, I transformed our guest space from blah to beautiful, from an afterthought to …

You’ll Never Want Starbucks Again

I mean I feel a little bad even writing that title, because Starbucks has been good to us over the years, but today on this snowy hump day I bring you an important public service announcement, haha! There’s no partnership, sponsorship or anything involved here…just a need to share some knowledge. Because once you try Breville you’ll seriously never want Starbucks again! Sure Breville is …

Giving Season

Holiday season is in full swing with Christmas fast approaching. And while it’s a super fun time full of parties, lights, treats and festivities, it’s also a season of giving 🙂 …not only to our friends, teachers, and loved ones,  but to people we don’t know…whom we’ve never met, but who need our kindness and generosity. We’re faced every day with bins and tags for …

The Most Wonderful Time of the Year

Yep, it’s the most wonderful time of the year (now that song is stuck in your head, haha)…not only is it holiday season, but it’s basketball season!! And I don’t mean like I’m an avid NBA fan…I’m talking youth basketball. My husband and I both grew up playing sports, so when we had kids we automatically started rolling, throwing, hitting balls with them as soon …

Walls Need Love Too

So I’ve been meaning to share this website for a solid 6 months now, haha, but since I rarely do posts about “home goods” it always seems to get pushed back. No longer. Walls need love too goddamnit, so today I’m talkin’ wallpaper! But not your grandma’s wet, gluey, pain in the ass to scrape off wallpaper…..decal wallpaper! It’s so jazzy, so easy to apply, …

A Real Life Love Story

Today’s post is totally unrelated to fashion, however it’s the perfectly appropriate and inspiring way to kick off this week…because it’s Valentine’s Day on Wednesday! So in the spirit of Valentine’s Day I’m sharing a real life love story with you. It wasn’t on my radar to share this incredible story until a few days ago when I bought my son “What Was Pearl Harbor” …

Getting Settled

It feels after the fact to write about the move now, because it seems like we moved 6 months ago…in reality, it’s only been about 6 weeks, ha! We’re still getting settled, but the sea of boxes is gone, rooms are pulling together more every day and we’re finally feeling at home. There’s been so much interest in the move/house though, and it’s been such …

Style Your Hair While You Sleep

Style your hair while you sleep?! Sounds too good to be true, and prior to trying the Sleep Styler, I was 100% anticipating the title of this post being “Buyer Beware” haha! It sounded like a b/s gimmick and a terrible night of sleep to me. But I was wrong…. So what is the Sleep Styler? My sister had seen this product on Shark Tank …

Lavender, Lemon and Peppermint

I’m definitely not perfect in the safe products department (my makeup bag and bathroom are big mix of brands and products), but when it comes to the kids, I really try to go safe – sunscreen, soaps, etc. So today I’m excited to share how you can use lavender, lemon and peppermint to cook, sleep better, repel bugs, prevent motion sickness, make sunscreen, and more! …

Sugar, Baby Powder and Flip Flops

So what on Earth do sugar, baby powder, and flip flops have in common?? Home remedies! I know that for the most part I share style tips, beauty product favs, etc., but today we’re gonna share some favorite, helpful home remedies! I admit, it doesn’t sound that super glamorous, haha, but they’re so flippin useful and sometimes fascinating or at least fun to try 😉 …
