The Klutzy Girl’s Guide to Eliminating Stains From Your Life

As a klutzy person, I'm prone to making some of the craziest messes! Learn from my mistakes and check out my tips on eliminating stains from your life once and for all!

This post is brought to you by Clorox. All opinions are my own. I’m a klutz. There’s really no nicer way to say it. Like, I should probably live in a bubble. As a klutzy person, I am prone to making crazy messes, especially on new shirts. Because of this, I have approximately 50 “pajama” shirts and a closet full of nothing to wear. I have also (and I kid you not) tripped over a dog while carrying a bucket of dirty water, tripped over my own feet while carrying my dinner to the table and my personal favorite, made coffee […] Read more »

How to Be More Creative & Productive During the New Year #WorkBetterWithFellowes

Increase your productivity and your creativity in your work and life with these easy tips!

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Fellowes Brands for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine. Balancing work and life was a major challenge for me in 2015. To be honest, I felt like I failed miserably at it. I promised myself that 2016 will be different. If there is one thing I learned last year, it’s that trying to be TOO productive is actually counterproductive. It’s also a surefire way to kill your creativity. Since my entire livelihood depends on being creative, something had to give. I needed to find a way to balance work […] Read more »

Get a Supernaturally Good Night’s Sleep with GhostBed

GhostBed Set

This post is brought to you by GhostBed by Nature’s Sleep. All opinions are my own. Back in 1993, two things happened. I graduated high school and my mom bought her last new mattress. While I still look fabulously young after 20+ years out of my old Alma mater, my mom’s mattress can’t say the same. Since I recently got a new mattress that I adore, when GhostBed offered me the chance to check out their super nifty new line of memory foam mattresses, I immediately thought of my mom. She lives with me, so it was easy for me […] Read more »

Christmas Decorating Ideas for Small or Tight Spaces

Got the decorating bug but can't find a single surface left to put that giant singing Santa? Don't feel bad, I'm in the same boat! I'm thinking outside the box (and off the mantle) with these ideas for Christmas decorating in small spaces and cluttered homes.

I have such mixed feelings about Christmas decorating this year. Honestly, I don’t have a lot of surface space left in my house for all my random cute stuff. The mantle is covered with photos. I have two end tables, a small shelf for the phone and a book shelf. That’s it as far as flat surfaces go! The windows are getting covered with plastic to help keep my electric bill down. It was with a heavy heart that I picked out just a few little snowmen and Santas to set out, then left the rest in the bins in […] Read more »

Make Holiday Cleanup a Breeze with the Electrolux Ergorapido Lithium (+ Giveaway!) #ErgoTheHolidays

Electrolux Ergorapido  1 (1 of 1)

Every year, we host a huge family Christmas party at my house. Since we live smack in the middle of most of my family, it just makes the most sense to hold it here. While I love that I don’t have to drive anywhere for our annual gathering, it definitely adds a ton of stress to an already busy schedule when it’s time to start cleaning! My mom lives with me and she doesn’t feel the house is truly clean unless it looks like a staged model home! Seriously, you’d think no one lived here by the time she’s done. Me? […] Read more »

Say So Long to Nasty, Stuffy, Smelly Indoor Air This Winter With Venta Airwasher Aromatherapy!

Venta Aromatherapy 1

Back in May, I told you about the Venta Airwasher, a revolutionary way to clean the air in your home. If you don’t remember that post (hey, I’m not mad, I can’t remember what I had for breakfast!), check out my Venta review to get caught up. I know people use that word “revolutionary” a lot when it comes to products. Everything is revolutionary these days. But the Venta Airwasher really is a unique and awesome way to get your air clean. It literally washes the air, then sends it back out all nice, fresh and humidified. Now, they’ve upped the coolness […] Read more »
