A Jewelry Crush

DIY Flower Pillow Tutorial

IMG_9322

I think one of the fastest ways to spruce up a room for Spring is with a bright floral pillow!  This DIY Flower Pillow project takes minimal material and can be made in no time at all. For materials, you'll first need a pillow.  You can purchase pillow forms at most craft stores, or if you're brave enough, you can hit up your local thrift store (you can read in my bio how I am a huge thrifter!) and pick up some pre-owned pillows for a couple bucks.  Mine, above on the right, is just so cute, ... ...continue reading

What to include on your baby registry

I am blogging on behalf of Walmart.com and received compensation for my time, but the views expressed here are solely mine, not Walmart’s. Shop online and save money to live better at Walmart.com. When I found out I was expecting, I couldn't wait to start shopping for baby gear! I picked up a few "baby registry guides" and got to work researching different brands and narrowing down my must-haves. To say it was overwhelming is an understatement! There are so many baby items on the market and it ... ...continue reading

Olay Regenerist Luminous

Ever since I was a teenager, my mom has stressed the importance of taking care of my skin and washing my face every night.  "Never wear your make-up to bed" and "always wear sunscreen," were words to live by according to her.  She introduced me to Olay products at a young age and I've been a loyal customer ever since.  While I never wear make-up to bed, I did abuse my skin in my twenties by spending far too much time in the sun and no amount of Olay Complete lotion has been able to keep my skin ... ...continue reading
