Our half bathroom downstairs, which is the main guest bathroom of the house, has gone through a lot of changes since we first purchased our home in December 2015. You can see some of the renovations on our Update Bathroom Faucet with Spray Paint post from last March. From changing the paint on the walls and the faucet—you’ve got to click that link to know what I’m talking about—to adding fresh hardware from other projects, changing switch plates and the whole works, this bathroom just needed one more thing to kick it into full farmhouse gear. The key to completing the half bath remodel venture was our Copper Mason Jar Bathroom Light Fixture, revamped right here at home in our own backyard. Read More
As much as we want to go to New Orleans this year for Mardi Gras, we have to face the music. We cannot make it happen. We have lots of work to do around the house and so much to save up for in order to have an awesome backpacking trip in Europe, come April. Next year, we vow to try harder. Forget trying, we will make it happen. Read More
We love shopping at Trader Joe’s. It feels like our second home. The smiling, familiar faces. The reusable bags. The Trader Joesian culture. Ahhh, the love!
Well, yesterday, we went grocery shopping to fill up the fridge and pantry. Of course, we stopped by the fresh flowers at the entrance to see if anything tickled our fancy. As always, they popped me with a surprise. I love when they have holiday bouquets. We picked up a super sweet Mardi Gras Floral Arrangement for $3.99. What a freaking steal! Read More
Alas, Sunday is here! It’ll soon be time to finish up a project or two that have been in the works. Before we get to crack-a-lacking, Conversation Heart Sugar Scrub is up for grabs. Who’s with me?
All the little girls—and ladies alike—are going to be dazzled to get a sweet Conversation Heart Sugar Scrub as a Valentine this year.
Yay! The day is getting closer and closer: Valentine’s Day. I love it. All the hearts. All the love. All the pink. Weeee. Conversation hearts for some Valentine’s Day Mantle Décor madness and we’re off!
After we contemplated on using conversation hearts for our Valentine’s Day Mantle Décor for so long, we finally did it! Little sweet, sugary hearts everywhere. Read More
This year, we are digging into a new list of home renovations but we refuse to leave the sweetness of red, pink & white behind. We’re set to make up for our beloved, lost valentine of 2016. Read More
I have loved Lush products since I was a little girl. Lip scrubs and bath bombs. Deodorant and shampoo bars. Mmm…just think of the scents when you enter the store. I love it! You know what I love more? Our very own homemade Lush Big Shampoo.
What shampoo do you use? For a while now, I have been using the squeaky clean shampoo bar. I was totally obsessed—hence the “was”. With tea tree and rosemary essential oils and hints of violets, I was told from the very second I set my eyes on one in stores. The smell of squeaky clean reminds me of baby violets perfume which I grew up using. It takes me back to my childhood days! Read More
Below is a list of the landmarks we have chosen to stop by while on our road trip. The main focus of this trip is to allow our family to become closer and to learn about our country. Part of our plan is, of course, to drive through and see beautiful things that we did not expect to see. We are not set on only seeing the landmarks, as we understand that on a road trip spontaneous things may come up. Read More
With all the trying to catch up with my storytelling thing on the blog, I don’t think I have yet had the opportunity to share about my niece’s birth. Sometimes blood is it thicker than water. Marylex’s childhood best friend, Morgan, just had a baby. Her name is Luna Faye. We call her Lulu. She’s absolutely gorgeous! What a little princess she is. The whole pregnancy was such a beautiful experience to follow from start to finish. Read More
OKAY, the Legendary Road Trip is right around the corner! We are practically ready for it. Except for packing an extra little jar of this Rejuvenating Coffee Body Scrub. Gosh, I cannot forget that. We’ve been training with the boy; we are going to begin working on “heal”, as we have not worked on that before. See below the list of states we will be visiting as we depart from Florida. It’s a round trip, start to finish, from home in Orlando. Happiest place on earth, DUH!
