Three Things I Did This Weekend That Made My Life Easier

If you’re like me, you’re busy. Even the weekends are busy. I can’t count the number of times on a Friday I’ve been like, “Thank God it’s Friday!” and then said, “Oh…wait…I have just as much to do in the next two days as I did in the last five…”

However, this past weekend, I did three simple things (that didn’t take me long at all) and they honestly made my life a little bit easier.

1. I purchased a scrub brush for our shower

One of the selling points when we bought this house was the HUGE shower in the Master Bathroom. I still love that shower, but it’s not the easiest thing in the world to clean. Mostly because it’s so big…but also because it’s all tile. Over the past few weeks I’ve noticed that I NOTICE the dirtiness when I’m actually in there taking shower, so I decided to fix that issue. I purchased the scrub brush, filled it with soap, and, for the past three days, as I’ve been in the shower I’ve searched for any bit of dirt I could find, and then spent a couple minutes at the end of my shower scrubbing it and then washing it down with our detachable shower head. Perfecto!

Essential Kitchen Accessories – forget all the STUFF! – A Guest Post!

Those of you who’ve been reading the blog for a while know that I despise clutter. Especially in the kitchen. There’s nothing I hate more than going into the kitchen and having to clean it before I can even cook in it…because then I have to clean it up when I’m done, too!

So when Jerin Marina approached me about doing an article for the blog about the essential items to furnish your brand new kitchen with, I loved the idea! I mean, come on, what woman would not want to suddenly have a brand new kitchen and furnish it with the necessities…and that’s IT! Jerin herself is a passionate cook and blogger who specializes in providing information on and reviews of food processors (which I think is fantastic – considering I don’t have a food processor *gasp* and I’ve learned a lot from her site! Check it out at BestFoodProcessorGuide.net when you can! Tons of fanatic information and side-by-side comparisons, the works!)

And so, without further ado, here’s Jerin!

Moving into a new home can be pretty nerve-wrecking for some people, as they have to deal with a lot of things so they can settle in comfortably. It has been found through studies and surveys that people take about two weeks on average to get settled in a new home, which, when compared to people living in fast cities, like New York, is pretty slow. People in New York take about a total of three days to get settled in a new home. The main reason for that is that people living in fast-paced cities know what tools, equipments and accessories are required for them to get settled in easily. The most important portion of a new home that takes up the most time is the kitchen. Here is your guide to the essential kitchen accessories and tools for your new home.

Pinterest Project Purgatory

You all know I LOVE Pinterest, and more times than not, I also love the results from various “Pinterest Projects”. However, it’s only fair for me to also share when Pinterest ideas go a bit…awry. Right?

Over the time we were moving, I was using the microwave a LOT. And it was getting kind of messy. I mean, messy for ME. See?
