Wanted to share this quick life-hack… ah the things we discovery accidentally that make all the difference.
I firmly believe EVERY ROOM in your house needs something alive and green. Plants add beauty and elegance to your decor…and they also can have health benefits (more info on that here). While I love them, I simultaneously hate plants because I always manage make them look ugly over time. Too much water, too little water, or sometimes I think they are out to spite me. LOL!
And then I think to myself, “Why invest in plants when I am just going to kill them?”
But, over the years of owning many kinds of greenery, there are TWO types of plants that I have had really good luck with and I hope you will, too. I am not an expert or a pro at plant care, but I ran this by a few friends who are really (REALLY) into gardening and they responded with a resounding YES to these babies, too….
Sweetheart Vine or Heart Leaf Philodendron (Philodendron Scandens)
ZZ Plant (Zamioculcas Zamifolia)
Let me explain why I love them so much and why (with minimal maintenance we have been able to keep them alive for 6+ years!)
Organizing without Dollar Tree IS possible (I know lots of my international subscribers are jealous of budget finds in the US). I wanted to make this video to show you some of my favorite IKEA organizers. Nope, this is not a sponsored video. I bought everything with my own dollas…very unfortunately. 😉
One common trend among all these items is the color white. White = clean = crisp = a feeling of high-end (even if you didn’t spend a lot). So here are my faves.
I always enjoy day in the life videos. So here is what we were up to this weekend….some thrifting, a massage, the pumpkin patch, and lots of yummy comfort food. Join us on our crazy weekend!

One of YOU introduced me to this product and said it was totally awesome. After a bit of hesitation, I was down to give it a try. Does Dollar Tree Teeth Whitener work? Watch the video to find out 🙂
It’s fall y’all!
Here’s how I decorate our house for fall and a mini tour of our downstairs (plus some updates in our master bedroom). I love seeing how others are updating their homes and touring around houses. Does that make me weird?
You can find the FREE PRINTABLE here:
Here’s our new bedding. It’s out of stock at Macy’s (boo!), and the sale is over, but you can find it here, for a pretty decent price. (I always Google for current coupon codes, too to maximize my savings)
Here’s how to make the DIY Mummies:
I get messages daily from so many of you. Some of you send me pictures, some of you write me notes, and some of you are just asking advice about your new apartment, home, or space.
Some days I wish I could teleport to your house and help you organize your space (it seriously does bring me so much joy), but I don’t have the time to personally help everybody. So I wanted to make this video about what I do when I approach a space (since it applies to virtually any area I am trying to organize). My process…and how I do it on a budget. It’s not rocket science, but they are simple tricks that really are no-fail.
Besides, who knows your home and needs better than you? You are smart and you are creative! Seeing others organize always motivates me to think about my own space. And that’s the goal of this video. 🙂
Looking for under the shelf organizer featured in this video? They are less than $10. Any time I can find a quality organizing product for less than $10, I’m a happy camper. (I wish Dollar Tree had a product like this…they need to get one!)
I saw on Pinterest how to make DIY snow…it looked so fun (and it was so easy) I knew this was a perfect late afternoon activity. You know, the kind of afternoon where destruction ensues and your child is in nothing but their diaper from a day of snacks/lunch is all over their outfit. 😉
Whip out your bar of Ivory soap and have fun! Hope you moms, grandmas and teachers enjoy! Fun for all ages!
So, full disclosure, I didn’t think I was going to post this video. I filmed it over a month ago, and thought it was too short and too goofy to post. So I was just leaving it in its “unpublished state” in my uploaded videos list. But then, super randomly, over the last week, I got no less than five messages/comments asking me what I ended up thinking of the headphones I picked up in this shopping vlog.
So for those of you that are curious, here are my two cents. I am enjoying testing out DT products and have more review to come!

P.S. Carson is at the end kissing Elmo, or “Mo” as he calls him. He’s already changed so much since I filmed this a few weeks ago. Ahhh!! Somebody freeze time.
P.P.S. I was listening to “Libre Soy” (Let it Go in Spanish from Frozen) when I was testing the headphones. Don’t judge. It’s a good song 😉
