Easy DIY Vanity Tray

This easy DIY Vanity Tray and my shopping trip have been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #SoFreshSoFrench #CollectiveBias I just love those cute vanity trays I see in the home decor store that are labeled with words like “ring” or “lotion”. The ones I see are usually white with black words and didn’t fit the style I wanted for my guest bath so I decided to make my own. I wanted a place to display toiletries and cute decor on the vanity for my guest. While doing some girl time shopping I came across the new to America, Le Petit Marseillais™ display at Walmart. The collection has 17 products and can be found on the specialty bath [Click here to continue reading]

All opinions are mine alone. #PilotYourLife #CollectiveBias  I’ve been using my planner for a few months now and while I love it, I hate that there isn’t a place for me to store my pen. With some planners there’s a sewn on pen holder loop, but not with mine. Having to get up and get a pen whenever I want to use my planner is annoying so I created a pen loop hack for my binders and planners without one.

All opinions are mine alone.  #Sponsored #WhatMonthlyPain #CollectiveBias Earlier this week my daughter was supposed to attend the National Senior Beta Club induction ceremony because of outstanding qualities in academic achievement, character, leadership and service. She’s been working so hard this year and I’m so proud of her. Monday after school we picked her outfit and decided on a hairstyle. Tuesday morning I was excited about styling her hair after school, but when she got home plans changed. As soon as she came in the door from school she asked if I had anything for cramps. Her back, tummy and legs were hurting all day she said. I felt so bad for her, but I had the [Click here to continue reading]

How to Paint a Lamp Shade

Do you ever look around your home and see a need in the area of home decor? I do all of the time, but before I go out buy something new, I look at what I have and think about how I can make it work. That’s what I did with this acrylic table lamp I  bought for my daughters bedroom and later decided not to use it.  The lamp ended up in my office, but it wasn’t a good fit. I needed a lamp in my bedroom and thought this could work if only the lamp shade were another color. I had no idea if this would work, but it did and here’s how I did it. You’ll need a paint roller.
