Have I ever told you how susceptible I am to marketing?
It’s true, when I was in University there was an infomercial for “Breast enlargement cream” (that was waaaaay back when I stayed up past 8pm). At that time, women aspired to Pamela Anderson’s chest size in the same way women now want a Kardashian butt. My nickname in highschool was “two-by-four” because of my un-Pamela-like chest size, so clearly I needed/bought the miracle cream.
Didn’t work of course. Neither did the […]
Are you working your way through your “100 Things 2 Do Before the Holidays” checklist?
I am, and while I’m not quite as prepared as I’d like to be, I have crossed off items each day – and who doesn’t love crossing things off of a checklist?
One item that wasn’t on my checklist specifically, but is a task I do once a year before Holiday guests see my ugly dishes (sorry guests during the rest of the year) is to […]
I received the Pfister Raya faucet in exchange for providing a review to my readers.
I’ve mentioned before that we built our house back in 2005 and, as with any build, costs were a constant concern so we opted for “builder’s grade” on a few essentials, like faucets, because we knew we could upgrade down the road.
One of our budget-buys was this little kitchen faucet.
Have the leaves started coming down where you live? I’ve heard that certain parts of Canada have seen their first snow already, so I know that it’s just a matter of time before the deluge begins.
As it stands, we’ve already started round 1 of our Fall yardwork with the pine needles that have dropped from the giant evergreens behind our house.
This post came about in a round about way – typical for how my brain works – so hang on…
We’ve been away at the cottage this past week and when I come home from any vacation anywhere I feel “dirty”. I’m actually clean, I’ve showered and we had laundry facilities, but the feeling sticks with me so on returning home from anywhere I do a mass of laundry, facial mask, hair mask, shaved legs – the works.
While unpacking the car […]
I need to show you a self-portrait:
At least two days a week this is how I feel – and the remaining 5 days a week, this is Hubby.
Is it possible that our pipes are shrinking? That they are so full of hair and crud and gunk that anything that goes down the toilet now causes it to clog?
I don’t even want to think about what might or might not be wrong […]
If you surf Pinterest, you will find dozens on dozens of people claiming to have “the best” or “the easiest” methods and materials for cleaning the oven. Heck, your oven itself probably has a self-clean function built right into it.
None of them, and I mean NONE of them will do as thorough a job as OvenClean. I know this because I’ve tried.
The vinegar, the baking soda, the SOS pads, the Ajax, and the ammonia. The best method I’d found prior […]
I’ve meant to share this post for about 3 years now and never have, but with Christmas just around the corner comes the urge to spoil your fur baby.
Stores are showcasing pet clothes, toys, treats and beds with the same abundance that you’d find these things for your kids…
I’m going to do you one better…
I am going to show you the very BEST dog bed you can get, and it’s cheap (if not free).
Using just three dollar-store ingredients and you can make your own mosquito repellent!
I saw this post on Facebook and decided it was worth giving a try; Miss Madison is our family’s ‘sweet meat’ and the bugs can’t seem to leave her alone.
We use spray on mosquito repellents like Deep woods and Off and Avon, but I really don’t like the thought of spraying her […]
