We all have a few tasks in life we deeply dislike. I for one, despise ironing and avoid it all costs. My hatred stems mostly from being left handed. Trying to learn to iron as a left-handed kid was a nightmare. The iron cord was always in my way and I could never figure out which side of the ironing board to stand on. Thankfully, when I went to college I received a steamer and my wrinkle problem became less of a problem.
I’m the worst when it comes to dragging various items into the bath tub. I take everything in there: a drink, my cell phone, a candle, various facial scrubs/shower gels, bath sponge, razor, pumice stone, and usually a book or magazine for starters. Sometimes I even take snacks to munch on if I’m planning on reading and soaking for awhile before bathing.
The sides of my tub (even though it’s a large garden tub) can get pretty crowded if I’m not careful and I hate it when it looks cluttered. I’ve been wanting to add a bath caddy to my tub for a while but had been having trouble finding one I thought would work well. I found an Adjustable Bamboo Bath Caddy from ToiletTree™ that looked like it might be just the one for me. I’m also using a Professional Skincare System – Facial Brush Set from the same company and wanted to share my thoughts with our readers…. [read more]
When it comes to the beautifying process, a lot can be involved. Makeup, skincare, fashion…those are all key players in the stylish persona that is you. However, the products on your face and body aren’t necessarily more important than what’s on your head! If your hair is happy, you might not need much else–and SoapBox understands that. With shampoos and conditioners that come in a variety of scents–and come in gigantic bottles, so that your family will have a surplus of product (as opposed to the ever-looming hazard of running out mid-shower)–SoapBox is ready to make your hair regimen a positive one, instead of a chore!
Finding sheets that I love can be a challenge. My husband is always cold and would probably sleep with flannel sheets year round, along with the heated blanket he insists I keep on the bed at all times (thank goodness it has separate controls for each side so he can have it on but I can keep my side turned off). I get hot when I sleep and often push the covers off so I can be more comfortable.
I prefer lighter sheets and softness is a must! Also, trying to find a material that won’t catch on dry skin, wrinkle easily, or get all pilly is definitely a plus. What I love about PeachSkinSheets is that they meet all of these specifications and they are really beautiful, too!
They wash up like a dream, go on the mattress without feeling like I’m getting a workout, and fit great. We have a fairly thick mattress with a mattress topper laying on top of it for comfort. Even deep pocket sheets can be a challenge to wrap around and under the edges adequately without a struggle. From start to finish I had this set of PeachSkinSheets on the bed (including pillow cases) in less than two minutes. And I wasn’t cussing my bed afterward!… [read more]
Do you dread going to the grocery store every week? We hate it! It is just my husband and I but it can get so expensive! We are always looking for ways to save with coupons, rebates and any other way that we can. Nothing drives us more crazy than buying fresh items just to toss them and watch our hard earned money go in the trash because we did not have time to use the items like we had planned.
I am forever losing my keys inside my handbag. There’s nothing I hate more in this world than having an armload full of stuff when I walk out the door and having to stop and put all of it down to dig through my purse to find my stupid car keys. So … annoying!!!
Alexx, Inc. has given me the perfect fix for this problem with their Finders Key Purse®. It’s an ingenious idea for busy moms or anyone else who is always on the go, go, go and doesn’t have time to search for keys all the time.
What I love best about this product is that it hits three “key” points that are very important to me when looking for an item to meet a need in my life. They are fashionable, functional, and most of all affordable. Trust me, once you try one of these handy little doo-hickeys, you will wonder how you ever functioned without it!… [read more]
Adulting is hard. There, I said it. Some days feel like you are wading through a battlefield and by the time you get home from your day’s activities it feels like you just want to collapse. But, you can’t because there are family issues to deal with, or homework and bath time with the kids, and dinner to make.
The point is that we all need down time to relax and recuperate from our day. One of the best ways to do that is to escape to a hot bath or shower. Lemme give you a glimpse of some items that I find essential to my relaxing end-of-day bath routine…. [read more]
With it being full blown traveling season I know lots of people are either headed out for spring break or getting ready for summer vacations. I don’t know about you, but when I travel I like to have things that make me feel comfortable and make it convenient to travel. I know sometimes weather in other places can take a huge toll on my skin and not having to use travel samples from hotels and having my own personal items can keep my skin from flaring up and breaking out.
Welcome to Beauty Brite’s Mother’s Day Gift Guide 2017

I love flowers, however, I haven’t figured out how to grow them in containers. We live in an apartment, so we don’t have our own yard to plant flowers. I’ve tried Marigolds and Pansies but they never lasted very long. I think I neglected them too long between waterings. I also love houseplants! I love having several different houseplants in our living space. They help brighten up any room.
