Better Homes and Gardens Style Showcase

Back in May, I worked with Better Homes and Gardens to do my Master Bedroom Makeover.  Shortly after that, I received an email that made me SO excited.  They were inviting little ole me to be a part of their Live Better Blogger Network!  This means I get to work with BHG for the next year, creating inspiring projects and spaces with their amazing BHG at Walmart products.   We kicked off the year by getting to visit their … [Read more...]

20 Beautiful Fall Wreaths

With fall approaching, it's nice to dress up your house slowly, adding in the colors and elements of autumn one by one, so you don't get overwhelmed and sick of it.  So far I've added in a few candles and pops of orange and red.  I'm not ready to change out my whole mantel but doing it this way helps me to embrace fall (not that I need any help, I love fall!) To inspire your fall decorating, here are 20 fall wreaths that you may not have seen … [Read more...]

SmartSilk Pillows Review

Pillows can be a tricky thing to navigate.  I'm not talking about throw pillows--which I probably need an intervention with.  I'm talking about the sleeping-on-at-night ones, the ones you hide behind 400 throw pillows on your bed because they are always deflated and lumpy and terribly wrinkled. I've tried many different kinds of pillows--everything from feather to down alternative to the um, regular kind(?) not sure what they are called.  The … [Read more...]

DIY Soundbar Mount

So it's a pretty common thing for men to love technology.  However, I need to admit that I'm also a fan.  But in my family, my husband is THE tech guy.  Like in all my family, which is extensive.  Anytime anyone needs to buy a new computer or TV or something, they ask him first.  And my husband loves his toys, so for his dental school graduation gift, I bought him his dream TV (at least the one that was reasonable to buy.)  And I have to say, it … [Read more...]

Painted Fold Down Desk

School starts in nearly just two weeks.  I can't believe it!  I'm also excited, but the other day I realized that this means I'm going to have to be organized again.  Organization is something I am capable of, but it is not my strong suit.  Especially when it comes to helping my son get all his homework done and turned in.  He's only going to be in first grade, but there's so many little different things they have to do in school--spelling, … [Read more...]

Puzzle Photo Frames Gift & Giveaway!

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Personal Creations. As Moms and Dads get older, I feel like they get harder and harder to give meaningful gifts to.  They always seem to have everything they want, and things like movies or lotion sometimes feel lame.  When giving to parents, you just really want to give them something that demonstrates your love for them and shows them their life and accomplishments.  For most people, … [Read more...]

Chevron Design Listerine

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Listerine for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine. So I'm married to a dentist.  And Oral Health is always a big issue of importance in our family.  This also means we always have a plethora of dental supplies in our very lacking-in-storage bathroom.  And while I can usually put most of it away and out of sight, I never have a good place to store the giant bottle of Listerine mouthwash. … [Read more...]

20 Barstool Makeovers

honeybearlane1007

I think the best way to get new-to-you home decor AND furniture is to buy or inherit old stuff and refinish or repurpose it.  My entire house is chalk-full of refinished furniture and I have to say, when people come to my house they are always blown away by the amount of refinished furniture that is in my house.  Seriously, almost everything.  That's the life of a DIY blogger though. My sister-in-law was telling me the other day how proud she … [Read more...]
