Hydrate your skin and break down cellulite naturally with this recipe for Homemade Cellulite Cream. It is all natural and made with essential oils. I recommend using a glass jar to store it since the citrus oils are highly concentrated. And since this is all natural you will not be putting any chemicals on your body. Plus, it smells so good! To use it just massage into the cellulite affected area daily and leave on for 5 minutes. Then rinse off. You can massage it in using your hands or you can use a shower pouf. I like to apply…

After living in our home for over 15 years, it is time to do some updates. One update that was well needed was the blinds in our home. When we first moved in, we added faux wood blinds in each window and while they looked pretty for a while over time they became broken. Last year we updated our main floor with Cellular Shades and loved the look of them. It was time to update the ones in our bedrooms to have working blinds again and match the ones on the main floor. While searching for Blackout Cellular Shades we…

Eventually we will be remodeling our kitchen but still don’t have the definite plans of what we are going to do yet. So we are focusing on our kitchen sink for now since it was in dire need of help. One company that knows kitchen sinks is Moen as they are the #1 faucet brand in North America and offer a large selection of kitchen and bath faucets, shower heads, accessories, bath safety products and kitchen sinks for residential and commercial. The sink and faucet we originally had (not Moen) was supposed to be scratch resistant but as you can…

When we first moved into our home 15 years ago we painted the walls a tan, beige, or brown in every room. What can I say, I was going thru a brown phase. After many years seeing those brown colors really got to us and we felt like we were living in a cave. We were due for some new paint colors and brighten up our home. We first started with our bathroom and hallway makeover in the summer and we have now worked our way to our master bedroom. As you can see this was the before with…

No matter how many times I tell my daughter to make her bed there is always an excuse to not make it and often left messy for the day.  I needed to put an end to those excuses by getting my daughter to make her bed daily with ease. I am sure I am not the only mom with the same problem and happy to find the answer.  I came across Beddy’s a Zipper Bedding Company that helps kids make their beds easier with one simple solution – a zipper. The zipper is accessible on both sides and goes all…

It’s a new year which means time for a new calendar! I love a pretty calendar that can fit on my desk to easily glance at it when needed. And this year I cannot get enough of the colors black and gold. I couldn’t find what I wanted in stores so I decided to create one and share it with all of you. You can print this black and gold 12 month desk calendar for free. The size is 6.5 X 4.5 which makes it easy to clip to a clipboard or put in a picture frame. The download is…

Different seasons can put a toll on lips making them dry, flakey, and not attractive.  Applying a lip balm or chapstick will not make a difference in curing this condition. What you actually need to do is exfoliate your lips. This is similar to what we do for our face and body but often neglect our lips. Getting the dead skin off the lips will maintain smooth and soft lips. Once you have removed the dead skin you will have a fresh layer of skin where you can apply a lip balm to help seal in the moisture for soft,…
