Simple Indoor Toddler Activities

Simple Indoor Toddler Activities

Hello! I thought I’d introduce myself as a new writer here on Beauty Brite. My name is Misty, and I am the mother of 4 little ones. On a side note, summer is here, which means fun in the sun! Summer also means afternoon rainstorms if you live anywhere like I do in North Carolina. They are quick thunderstorms, but it does mean dragging the kids inside until it passes which brings in the inevitable whining of, “I’m bored”.

As any mom, I am always searching for fun indoor toddler activities!

Seven Ways To Beat The Winter Blues

Seven Ways To Beat The Winter Blues-Pine Mountain-American Home-Progresso Organic Soup-Prismacolor Colored Pencils and Markers

Beauty Brite Disclosure

With winter weather right around the corner, it makes me think of ways that we can stay cozy and warm as the cold settles in for a stay. When it’s nasty outside, some people can also find themselves falling into what I call the “winter funk.” This is when you feel confined, your mood can sometimes be depressed, and it is hard to find the motivation to do things and find joy in life.

When the weather turns cold and nasty and the days start to get shorter I love nothing better than curling up on the couch under a warm afghan, sometimes with the fireplace glowing and emanating warmth throughout the main area of the house. I have a variety of personal pleasures that I like to engage in to occupy my mind and provide entertainment and contentment when it’s not nice enough to be outdoors.

There are many ways to stay warm, but here are a few of my faves…. [read more]

Affordable Fashion At Your Fingertips

Affordable Fashion At Your Fingertips - Duct Tape Bags by Richela Fabian Morgan

Beauty Brite Disclosure

I’m like most women, I love purses. Love ’em, can’t afford to feed that passion, though. I have one (yes, only one) Coach purse. Coach purses are beautiful, but outside my price range. The one I have, I was lucky enough to win in a giveaway a few years ago. Handbags are something I do a lot of window-shopping for but am rarely able to justify purchasing for myself.

And then came Duct Tape Bags by Richela Fabian Morgan into my life. I’d heard of duct tape wallets before and thought they were kinda neat. But, I’d never considered expanding the concept. Flipping through the pages of this DIY tutorial book, however, inspired me to try this out for myself…. [read more]

Easter Crafts And My Go-To Chocolate Favorites

Easter Crafts And My Go-To Chocolate Favorites
Beauty Brite Disclosure

Ever since I was a child I have always looked forward to holidays of all kinds, especially the ones that involve candy. Easter has always been a much-loved day in our home, I remember my mother buying my sisters and I matching dresses and going to Easter Egg hunts at church as a child. And waking up to our Easter baskets was always very much anticipated as we were always eager to see what the Easter Bunny had left for us!

All my life, Hershey’s chocolate has been a huge part of all of the major holidays for my family. It’s no different now that I’m a parent myself, Hershey’s is the most prevalent candy I utilize to celebrate every holiday that we love. My kids’ favorite has always been Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups….

Picture Hanging Made Easy

Picture Hanging Made Easy

Picture hanging is the bane of my existence! I hate having to ask my husband for help, lords knows he does enough work around our house. I’m also a short gal, I don’t have the patience for standing on a step stool and trying to steady myself with a measuring tape to get the right dimensions.  I’m horrible at estimating where and how to hang something, which is usually what I end up resorting to. This makes me sad because decorating is one of my greatest passions and it has quickly become my biggest frustration.
