My Favorite Shop Of The Month – April 2016

Living on the outskirts of Houston, door to door salesmen and businesses leaving flyers on doors is a huge problem. I regularly had 6 solicitations per week at my home. I also have a hard time saying no and may have spent $50 on books, $200 on cleaners, $160 on meat and $10,000 on windows […]

DIY Bold Bathroom Cabinet

I’m currently in the process of antiquing all the cabinets in my house. They are all white or gray. This is ok for most of the house but, I wanted something bolder for my guest bath. It’s small and there isn’t a lot of room for accessories without making it look cluttered. Therefore I decided […]

Build-A-Brow Review

For those of you who don’t know, THE EYEBROW STRUGGLE IS FO REALS!!! I can’t believe I am actually discussing this topic publicly. See I suffer from the lack of eyebrows. As a child I had great Brooke Shields eyebrows but, as a teen I began plucking and by plucking I mean, OVER PLUCKING. Now […]

Erin Condren Life Planner Review

I absolutely love, Love, LOVE planners!!! I am constantly looking for the newest biggest one I can find.
