One of my favorite brands at Blogger Bash earlier this month in NYC was Zipz Wine.  You can tell from this photo with my bloggy girlfriend Melissa that I was MORE THAN EXCITED to find Zipz Wine at the event. So I don't know if you guys can tell from the photo what it is but Zipz Wine is single serve wine glasses to go.  You can "unzip" the … [Read more...]

Back in June, I posted that I was working with the furniture store Raymour & Flanigan, and that they were going to be helping me redo one of my rooms. I asked you all if I should do my dining room or my living room. Almost everyone voted for a resounding YES to re-doing our bedroom. I am not sure it it was because our old bedroom was looking … [Read more...]

Guys! Exciting news today! I'm beyond thrilled to announce that I will be working with Raymour & Flanigan to makeover a room in my house. I most definitely need it in many rooms in my house! When they asked me which room I thought needed a furniture re-do, I said a few of them! But the two we thought needed the most were our bedroom and … [Read more...]

Happy day!  They've finally opened up the Container Store in my local area.  I went for a blogger luncheon and visit last week to scope out the new store and all it did was inspire me to get more organized in my house.  Which is a good thing, trust me.  It's also a good thing there are places like the Container Store that make it easy to get … [Read more...]

For this week's Pinspiration, I'm bringing back an oldie but goodie.  I was perusing Pinterest last year and came across a cool way to organize all of your child's school papers.  It may not seem like much that first year or two of preschool, but add several years into the mix and all the memorabilia and art work you are saving will pile up.  I was … [Read more...]

We recently updated all of our bedding in Cole's (7) room to bedding from the Company Store.  Previously, we had a big Pottery Barn quilt.  It was cute but he was always SO hot, even in the winter.  By the end of the night, all covers would be kicked off and he would end up cold and eventually walking into our room. Seriously, this kid hasn't … [Read more...]

Pulled a quick video off my tv of my feature on QVC last week! I had posted that some pictures from my closet makeover were going to be featured on Jill Martin's segment on QVC but I wasn't sure what photos they would use or in what capacity - here it is! You can see that Jill featured my improved shoe situation. Years ago (like a decade +), … [Read more...]

My closet is a nightmare.  It's shameful, really - hubby and I have a nice sized walk-in closet but it's a big organizational mess! So when QVC contacted me about testing out some pieces from Jill Martin's Closet Makeover Product line, I thought, why not? When I have more time, I'll bring you a longer post with some of the pieces I used to help … [Read more...]

While I'm thankful that I personally don't suffer from seasonal allergies, my house has two victims of seasonal allergies every fall - my hubby and my youngest son.  Neither of them seem to like the grass and pollens that fly around outside during the fall and someone always seems to be reacting.  Hubby gets a runny nose for week and my son gets … [Read more...]

Recently, I received a little package of goodies from the Company Store.  I received the Newport Stripe Beach Towel (currently on sale for $34, normally 37) and this cute little girls Ladybugs Tote Bag from Company Kids ($39). Definitely did not know that the Company Store sold beach towels and other beach-related items as I would have normally … [Read more...]
