DIY Chalkboard Door

I don't like the doors in our home. But, when you rent there's not much that you are able to change and we don't want to invest too much into it either. While I would love to swap out our plain doors for two panel, that's out of the question. My Mom has a chalkboard door leading from her kitchen to garage and I decided that I wanted one too. The door leading from our kitchen to the basement was the perfect door to paint. It would add some fun to our kitchen and would be a great place to write grocery lists, meal plans, to-do's and inspirational quotes.

Currently {June 2016} & a Giveaway!

Our family is always on the go and as avid gum chewers, a supply of gum is a must have. Gum makes me think of one of my favorite childhood movies, Willy Wonka. Violet, one of the popular characters in the film, says this about chewing gum: Well I'm a gum-chewer, normally, but when I heard about these ticket things of Wonka's I laid off the gum and switched to candy bars instead. Now, of course, I'm right back on gum. I chew it all day except at meal times when I stick it behind my ear. Violet goes on to take a piece of gum that is made to taste like tomato soup, roast beef and blueberry pie with unexpected consequences. While I don't want a piece of gum that tastes like a three-course meal, I do want a minty variety on hand for me to chew when I'm running from work, activities and errands.

Sephora Play Review - May 2016

My daughter has taken over my Ipsy subscription and I'm very excited that last month I was finally off the waitlist for Sephora Play! Like Ipsy, Sephora Play is a monthly beauty box that delivers deluxe samples to your door step for $10/month. The samples are from the same prestige brands that they carry in the store. Along with the samples, you receive a Play Book with helpful tips, a Play Pass to redeem in store for a free 1:1 tutorial + 50 extra bonus points and a collectable makeup bag. The only downside is that it's not customizable like other services, but for me, that's okay! Here's what I got in my May Play box!

There's nothing better to throw on in the summer than an easy, breezy dress! When I saw this one at Mint Julep, I immediately imagined myself walking barefoot on the beach with a cold glass of sauvignon blanc watching the sunset! It will be awhile until my next tropical vacation but that doesn't mean that I can't channel the coastal chic trend here at home. This gauzy pheasant dress with the blue embroidered detail, keyhole neck and tassel screams coastal getaway! The blue and white is perfect for a summer day spent at a festival, farmers market or brunch with the family!

Home Pedicure Essentials


It's easy to ignore your feet when you wear boots all winter. Now that the warm weather will be around for awhile, it's time to get your feet summer sandal ready! As much as I love going to the salon for a pedicure, it's pretty rare and is usually for a special treat to myself or girls day. I've always given myself pedicures at home. For me, painting my nails is therapeutic, kind of like coloring! In the winter months, I give myself monthly pedicures and in the summer, it's my Sunday ritual almost every week. It's easy to take care of your feet at home. Read on for my home pedicure essentials!

Our cat Zowie gets wet cat food for breakfast every morning. His nutrition is as important as the rest of the family and we recently switched his food to Rachel Ray Nutrish Grain Free Wet Food. We all know Rachel Ray from her healthy 30 minute meals. Now with the help from pet nutritionists and inspired by recipes from her own kitchen, she has created Nutrish premium cat food.
