Regular Nail Polish vs. Shellac

I’ve been a fan of shellac nail polish for quite some time now.  I’ve seen lots of questions on Facebook about it and thought I’d conduct my own little experiment so you can see the difference between regular polish vs shellac.

How to Help When Someone’s Child is Diagnosed with Cancer

Childhood Cancer Awareness

 

In honor of Childhood Cancer Awareness Month I wanted to share some ideas on how to support families when their child is diagnosed with cancer.  Last year our niece, Paige, was diagnosed with Leukemia at her one year check-up.  I have so much respect for the strength and resiliency cancer children and their families demonstrate after seeing, only from afar, the terrifying journey Paige, Jay and Brandi have been on this past year.   Continue reading “How to Help When Someone’s Child is Diagnosed with Cancer”

DIY Mud Room

Mud Room TitleThere are so many cute mud room ideas on Pinterest . I decided to try my hand at putting something together in the empty space next to our garage fridge.  I would prefer a built-in, but since we don’t have the money to hire someone and my husband and I aren’t the handiest I decided to use pre-built shelving. If you’re looking to add a mud room space of your own but don’t have any carpentry skills this post is for you.  Read on for the simple steps to creating your own DIY mud room.

Stitch Fix Petite – Review #9

Stitch Fix Petite -Review #9

My stylist, Kate, really did a great job picking items that fit me perfectly for my 9th Fix!  First off, hallelujah for Stitch Fix petite sizes!  My stylist chose a petite maxi skirt for me and I can wear it without walking all over it or holding it up while I walk.  My short girls know what a huge win this is.  

Still haven’t tried Stitch Fix or are unsure what it’s all about? Read my What Is Stitch Fix post to learn all about it. Basically you fill out a profile to let them know what you like, and your stylist sends you five items, which you try on at your convenience in your home, choose what you want to keep and send the rest back in the pre-paid envelope.  You can even arrange for it to be picked up at your front door for free.  I’ve really enjoyed the variety of clothes and accessories I’ve received and it’s helped me branch out and try new styles.

This month’s fix was a winner and I ended up keeping all five items.  One of the items I ended up giving to a friend.  With the 25% discount for keeping all five items it was cheaper to keep it than send it back. Continue reading “Stitch Fix Petite – Review #9”
