Spring Holiday Decor

I love decorating for any holiday (and all holidays, just ask my Hubby). But I am also picky about my decorations and I like them to look a certain way. So I was loving all the wooden signs for the holidays and loved the idea of reversible ones, this was my inspiration

* I would link to this item but it is gone from Etsy.

I had hubby cut me some blocks from wood in the garage (luckily he saves all his extra wood). Then the girls and I went to AC Moore with a gift card for craft paper. Lucky for us it was on clearance and we scored 2 huge books!

Then a little Mod Podge on the paper/wood and let it dry.

They I made letter stencils (printed out a font I liked in the right size and cut them out) and made the letters with permanent markers.

Decor done!

Seventh Generation Automatic Dishwasher Packs

First of all, you have to understand that I LOVE Seventh Generation products, so any time they ask me to try one I do a little happy dance. Most recently they asked me to try the Automatic Dishwasher Packs.

 The first thing I noticed when I open the pack is that they are not all plastic feeling like other dishwasher packs. These feel very natural, which makes me feel better about them going in with the items with eat with. From the Seventh Generation site:

Dishwasher Packs remove even dried, stuck-on food
Dishwasher Tabs for convenient, no-guess, no-waste single-pack dosing
Dish Packs contain no chlorine, phosphates or synthetic fragrances
Enzyme-rich, biodegradable dishwashing formula
Dish Packs in resealable pouch

I will be for sure buying these in the future!

*** I received a package of the Dishwasher packs for Free, but all opinions are my own.

Happy Galentine's Day

So I am a little early, but I LOVE this concept of Galentine's Day. Galentine's Day is February 13th and is a day to celebrate our BFF's and all those ladies that make life easier for us. The ladies and I will not be celebrating on the 13th, we have something planned for later in the month already, but I wanted to share so easy "DIY" Galentine's Day ideas with you all.

Fun Cocktails are a must for a Girls Night. Here are a few of my favorites:

White Wine Sangeria

Red Wine Sangeria
Can you see the theme here?

Also I love a good at home mani/pedi with my girls. Honestly I cannot say enough about Sally Hansen Miracle Gel for the best at home (easy on the nails) gel mani.

This is not a paid response, I just seriously love this polish it totally last for a while and my nails are so much healthier from it. And with 80 colors to choose from there is no time to get bored! I think the best way to celebrate with my girls is a fun low key night.

What is your Galentine's Day ideas/plans?

My ideas for this post were inspired by Eventbrite, you can use them for all your party planning needs

Another set of Perfectly Posh Reviews

I told you awhile back about my friend's Perfectly Posh products and lucky me, she sent over some new products and more samples!

I was happy to see some returning favorites and some new products too. Let's start with face products. 

Best Face Forever Face Wash and Night and Day Moisturizer

I absolutely loved this face wash as it exfoliates as well. It truly left my face feeling clean and looking fresh.

Now I worry about moisturizer as I never like something heavy, while the Night and Day Moisturizer feels thick in your hand it goes on super light and does not weigh the skin down. This is a great pair to have!

Face masks I feel are hit or miss, but Cackle Spackle does that amazing thing where you feel like you want to take it off right away, so you know it working! The glow the next morning was amazing.

I am really into serums lately so this Never Grow Up Serum was great to try. 

This serum is light but gives that little tingly feeling that lets you know it is getting into all those lines and circles to make your skin glow. 

Body Scrubs are always on my list, and this one has the best name: We Put De Lime in De Coconut

I was a little disappointed with this scrub, it worked well but was a little thicker then I would have liked and the scent was just not as nice as with a lot of the other other Perfectly Posh products. I liked it enough that I might try a different scent next time, maybe like the Blissed out Body Scrub

I am a huge fan of the body bars that Perfectly Posh  has and I got to try two new ones. 
Dive in Chunk and Castaway Coconut Snarky Bar

Dive in Chunk was a great body bar. It cleans and feel so nice but with a little less of the exfoliate that is in the other bars. I feel like this is a great everyday bar. 

Castaway Coconut Snarky Bar is amazing and I love that these really exfoliate as well as clean the skin without being drying. Also you can't beat the fresh scent of coconut in the mornings!

I have not tried many body oils so this was a fun new product for me, Sunny Skin Joy Coconut Oil

I enjoyed how smooth this made my skin for hours, literally still at the end of the day it was smooth. But for me everyday this might be a little much. I feel like it took a little longer then I would like to dry. 

And finally who does not love a Caffeinated (!!!) lip balm, Get Fresh Lip Balm

This is a great little lip balm. I love that it comes in the small thin tube and it is a little rougher then other lip balms so I feel like it exfoliates as well as moisturizes. It is great to have a product that does both!
