Layered Vinyl Christmas Tree

I absolutely love making my own Christmas decor. Mostly because I have a hard time finding Christmas decor that I absolutely love in the store! One way that I always enjoy making decor is with vinyl. I heard a quote that I sort of liked, but it was a little too cheesy for my taste, so I changed it a bit. My saying is, “Laugh, Play, Jingle all the Way”. I love how this fun Christmas tree turned out with this little phrase on it. I have plans of making shirts for my girls with this same phrase on it!

Root Cover Up Hack

This post is sponsored by Everpro Gray Away. All of the thoughts and opinions are my own.

When I was doing hair full time, one question that seemed to be asked a lot was how to extend the life of their hair color. There were a few tips that I would give my clients, but there was no real way to cover up the roots that well. That has all changed! I recently tried Gray Away and I was so impressed with my results! I had no idea there was such an easy root cover up solution!

Vanilla Mint Sugar Scrub

I absolutely love how my skin feels when I am exfoliating regularly. It leaves skin feeling baby soft! I used to buy different scrubs to use in the shower, but they can be quite expensive. The good  news is that making your own scrub costs very little and takes less than 15 minutes. It is a major win! I love making different varieties to try, but I also love making them to give as gifts! This vanilla mint sugar scrub is one of my favorite scrubs to make. The scent is really soothing and delicious!

Grateful: A Tribute

(affiliate links included)

I have been thinking about gratitude a lot lately. When November rolls around, it seems to be the topic on a lot of people’s minds. But what does it mean to be grateful? Does it simply mean that we are glad we have someone or something in our lives? Is it simply just saying that you are grateful for something?

I think gratitude goes far beyond simply just saying that you are grateful for something. I think it involves humility and action. [Read more…]

Quick Snacks for Kids

Tracking Pixel
So much of our day is spent grabbing our things and running out the door to our next activity. It is school, doctor appointments, classes, and holiday functions. It is a constant juggle! I kept finding one problem. We would get into the car, get all buckled up, and then my daughter would say she was hungry! No matter how many times I would make sure she would eat something before we left, she would always be hungry when we got on the road. That’s why I decided to create a better solution for us. I decided to have snacks that we could grab and take with us in the car.

What to Expect When Getting Permanent Makeup

I used to fill in my eyebrows every single day. I did it so many times, that I thought that I had gotten it down to the point where it didn’t take very long. Then one day I was trying to get out the door and I was just going to fill in my brows and put on some mascara before leaving the house because I didn’t have time to worry about anything else. Those few steps ended up taking way longer than they should have. That was when I finally decided to start saving to get permanent makeup done on my brows!

Pumpkin Pie Bath Bomb Recipe

It is the time of year when all things are pumpkin spice. I am actually not a fan of the taste of pumpkin spice, unless it is in the form of pumpkin bread or pumpkin cookies! I do, however, love the smell of pumpkin. That’s why I knew that October’s recipe needed to be a pumpkin pie bath bomb!

I’m FINALLY getting sleep!

When my 5 year old was a baby, my husband and I were diligent about the sleep program that we can chosen before she was born. She spent 11 days in the NICU and came home with her own little baby schedule that the hospital had created for her. There were definitely some hard nights but once we got her trained, she was an awesome sleeper. Flash forward to present day. My 9 month old has been a completely different experience! She has been a hard baby to train. It doesn’t help that we moved when she was almost 5 months old and have spent the last 4 months in limbo as we travel back and forth to go visit dad until we move again. I would get so discouraged when I would read articles that would claim that a 6 month old should be sleeping mostly through the night and my 6 month old was waking up every 2-3 hours! I was at my breaking point and I needed to find a better way.
