Not being the cook in the family I don’t often reach for the spices, but my husband does regularly. Fortunately my love for organizing trumps my confusion in the kitchen. I hated the way our spice containers were all different shapes & sizes and in those rare occasions where I use them, it would take a long time sifting through to find the spice I needed. This rolling end cabinet that the spices were in wasn’t working…

I recently got tired of our guest bedroom decor and decided to spruce it up in more of a ‘mid century modern’ style. I was looking for pillows to add a touch of color and texture, but couldn’t find anything reasonably priced. (Since when have pillows gotten so expensive?!?!)

I’m no beauty expert and this definitely isn’t a beauty column, but I do have a nack for time saving tips which extends in to the beauty department. With the cold weather, my hands always seem to get extra dry. Standard lotion just doesn’t do the trick. But I found a solution. If you’re willing to…

I am NOT good in the kitchen. I repeat I’m good in the kitchen.  My husband jokingly reminds of ‘that one time’ when I couldn’t find prosciutto at Trader Joes so I bought a different type of cheese instead. Yes, you read that correctly. I thought prosciutto was cheese.  And yes, this was only a couple years ago. But what I am a pro at is finding good dishes that save time, money & stress.…

  Have you ever gotten this dreaded pop up on your Iphone right as you’re about to take a photo? If you’re anything like me, you then scrabble to try to delete any app that hasn’t been used recently or quickly remove some older photos where you didn’t look very good. By the time I free up space on my phone, the photo opt has likely passed. Getting frustrated that my ‘fixes’ were always temporary,…

As the seasons change, it always seems like the right time to re-organize, re-fresh, re-clean. Ummm..actually, who am I kidding. I do this daily. I don’t need a weather change as a prompt. But our car was in need of some major cleaning out and organizing after a summer of road trips and camping. The first area I’m tackling is the trunk! I like to keep essentials in a nice organized manner in the event that…

I love when I can make something easily at my home that would typically cost me a fortune at a store. There’s a bunch of new fancy lip scrubs out on the market today and although I can be a sucker for a fun new product, this one is just so simple to make on my own! This week’s Fast Fix Friday is an easy DIY lip scrub solution using stuff you already have at home. Right…
