How to Make a Wreath for Any Occasion

Halloween Wreath

 

 

I have a super crafty friend that loves any do-it-yourself project. One day this friend hosted a wreath making party. I am not the craftiest person so I was hesitant, but went nonetheless. By the end of the party, I had caught the wreath-making bug! Since then I have made five new wreaths for various holidays and as gifts. It was easy, cheap (I get all my materials from the Dollar Tree), and fun!… [read more]

One of the great constants of life is that there will always, always be something that needs cleaning. It’s just the way of the universe.

To that end, I am constantly looking for new products to try to find the best and most efficient ways to get things done. The two newest are pretty basic cleaning tools but no home can really be run with any success without them, in my opinion. [read more]

National Dress Up Your Pet Day

National Dress Up Your Pet Day - Zoo Snoods

 

Beauty Brite Disclosure

 

Today is National Dress Up Your Pet Day. It’s the perfect time to share some really awesome new pet accessories with our readers. I swear, you are gonna love these. They are so stinkin’ cute!!!

They’re called Zoo Snoods. They are the most adorable hand-knitted hats/hoods for your favorite canine and feline friends to wear to keep their heads and ears warm while outdoors on cold winter days.

Being a crocheter and knitter myself, the appeal of this items perhaps needs no explanation. I have always wanted to try my hand at whipping up a handmade coat or ear warmer for our cats and dogs. But, it’s one of those things that is on my perpetual to-do list and never seems to get done.

Zoo Snoods-Giraffe

Zoo Snoods come in quite a few cute animal variations. I chose a giraffe for our Golden Retriever, Charles, and a unicorn for our Beagle/Jack Russell mix, Jaci. I ordered a size small in the unicorn because she seems like such a small dog next to Charles, but it was readily apparent upon opening the packaging that she is in fact NOT a small dog! [read more]

Finally Charcoal Toothpaste from a Well-known Brand

Colgate Essentials with Charcoal

Beauty Brite Disclosure

It feels like Colgate has been around forever. I remember using the fruity sparkle toothpaste as a child and even my children now use the same flavored toothpaste from Colgate. I have recently seen an increase in the trend of using activated charcoal to not only clean skin but also for brushing one’s teeth. I have also noticed all of the emerging brands of said charcoal toothpaste and have been hesitant about picking the best one to go with. Now, I don’t have to. Tried and true, Colgate has released their Colgate Essentials with CHARCOAL.

You know what makes this release even better? The fact that the Colgate Toothbrush included with your Colgate Essentials with Charcoal toothpaste also has charcoal in its bristles to make sure you are getting the best clean possible. There’s also no mess with using the Colgate Essentials with Charcoal. The charcoal is already in the toothpaste as well as cleverly mixed with the bristles so now puffs of black powder all over you and your clean bathroom! That’s a huge win in my book.

We’ve all seen the awful videos online and heard news reports about people’s packages being stolen right from their front steps. We’ve heard about burglaries while we are away from home at work, school, or on vacation. Also, on the rise are instances of home invasions when one or more family members are in the home, often in the middle of the night while we are sleeping.

In response, many companies are introducing home security products to help provide protection and a sense of security for consumers. The Panasonic HomeHawk™ Front Door Home Monitoring Camera provides plenty of awesome features to help you do just that.

  • – Color recording, even at night
  • – High-definition, weather resistant cameras perfect for outdoor and indoor use

  • – Google Home and Amazon Echo compatible

This system is sleek, unobtrusive, and easy to install and manage. I’m not very tech-savvy, those tasks are ones that my husband and son take care of for the family. My husband’s been really busy with work, but my son was happy to play around with the camera units and see what they could do. [read more]

School has been back in session for a few weeks now and the daily grind of getting everyone up, dressed, and fed is becoming even more taunting than the day before, Breakfast is one of the biggest components. Finding something that is both delicious and healthy while quick to eat can sometimes be difficult. Heres a few simple ideas that you may typically overlook in a rush using a few of Barbara’s cereal selection! I have also included a cereal from Mom’s Best line just to provide variety.

Back To Life Back To Reality AKA School

Back To Life Back To Reality AKA School--Betty Crocker-Junkless-Simple Mills

Beauty Brite Disclosure

 

So, yet another summer bites the dust as Open House dates loom, parents start gritting their teeth over the mountain of paperwork the first day of school brings them, and school buses hit the road, polluting up all of our summer fun with their hissing brakes, squealing doors, schizophrenic timeframes for arrival, and generally just causing traffic jams everywhere they roll.

If your kids haven’t had to endure this undignified return to early bedtimes, blaring alarm clocks, fights over what to wear to school, and skirmishing in the hallway amid shouts of “Bathroom hog!”, I envy you — a lot.

But, it’s inevitable that they surely soon will be heading off into another school year, so enjoy the unfettered summer freedom while you can, friends! Today, I’m hitting a little bit on must haves that my kids request for the start of school, but mostly (since we are huge snackers in my house) I’ll be talking about new after school and study time snacks that I’ve found for them from Simple Mills®, Junkless­®, and Betty Crocker™.
