New Product Review: Eco Gloves (and a FREE Giveaway!)

Well, like it or not, this lil’ pandemic we’ve gotten ourselves into seems to be sticking around a bit longer than we all thought it would. I’m sure you’re as ready to say goodbye to COVID-19 as I am, but until then, we still need to be smart about how we conduct ourselves, right? Right!

So when Jeffrey from Eco Gloves contacted me and asked if he could send me some of their product, my first thought literally was, “Well, I could use them to pump gas with, at least!” and I agreed to check them out.

Now, come on, folks. We’ve all seen the people who wear their gloves to do everything with, and then touch their face with them. Let’s be clear: I DO happen to know how to use gloves PROPERLY. There. I just wanted to make sure everyone understood that. Let’s proceed.

When my Eco Gloves arrived, I was taken aback for a moment, simply because I couldn’t believe what a small package they came in. I thought I was getting a pack of 100…oh. Look. I DID get a pack of 100. What great a great space-saving product! An entire box of 100 could EASILY fit in my purse, or diaper bag, glove box or console! SO convenient!

New Product Review: Basic Invite

It’s that time of the year, folks! We are officially in the midst of “the holidays”, and one of the most important things on MY list this time of year is: Christmas cards. Here’s our card from last year:

Not too bad! I ran short on time and had to pound these out at Walgreen’s. They ended up being your basic cheap Christmas cards, but I thought they were cute! (And YES, I did include the crying child. Because she cries a lot and I figured, why not share. HA!)

Normally I like to order my cards online, just so I can get them perfectly customized, and take my time with all of the options…you know how it goes. The only thing with online ordering is, you’re never quite sure exactly what you’re getting, right?

Keeping Your Garden Free Of Clutter

Anyone who’s blitzed through this blog at all knows that I HATE clutter. So much so, in fact, that I actually officially registered the hashtag #ihateclutter. I mean, that’s a pretty strong hatred, folks! Time was invested into that one! But I’ll admit – most of the time my detest of clutter is focused INSIDE our home.

According to my research, spending time outdoors is good for our physical and mental health. One of the easiest ways to get in touch with your inner self is by stepping out into your garden, but a cluttered backyard isn’t always the best spot for relaxing. Let’s go over some of the ways that you can keep your yard clean, organized, and free of clutter so that you and your family can make the most of your outdoor space.

Keep the Lawn Trimmed

It’s no secret that lawn maintenance is one of the main keys to keeping a tidy home and yard. If you mow at least once every one to two weeks, you can keep your lawn looking its best. (And if you’re in Florida like we are and the rainy season is upon us, you’ll soon be needing to mow every few days!) Mowing and trimming regularly ensures that you get rid of unhealthy growth, encouraging fresh, green growth throughout your grass. As an added bonus, old trimmings can make a great fertilizer for future shoots in the garden!

Three Key Pieces of Home Decor that Every Home Needs

Every home is different. Each home serves as a reflection of the tastes, interests, lifestyles, and values of the people who live in them. Interior design is how we communicate those characteristics through color, patterns, fabrics, textures, and layouts. It’s what allows us to craft truly memorable homes that are comfortable for the people who live in them, while taking pride in the space in which they live!

Even though each home can become unique, through the different choices in color scheme and other facets, there are some practical considerations that every home needs to accommodate. People need to eat, people need to sleep, and furniture and decor items, especially the more expensive ones, need to be protected against wear and tear. Though it may seem dull in comparison to choosing a beautiful color scheme, or picking out a beautiful set of drapes to adorn your windows, you need to think about these practical considerations, and how you’ll address them.

A Comfortable, Appropriately Sized Bed

Few things in life are as important as a good night’s sleep, and that’s why a bed that allows you to rest comfortably every night, without going overboard on size, is at the top of the list. When you don’t sleep well, or don’t get enough sleep, it will ruin your entire day. You’ll be tired, irritable, and unfocused. If that’s the condition you’re trying to operate in, it won’t matter how great the rest of your home design is – you’ll be too grouchy to appreciate it.
