Spring Cleaning: Personal Care.

April 20, 2018


I’ve been in spring cleaning mode for what feels like a year now. ha! I think I really just want to get rid of excess, and also be more purposeful about what I am purchasing. It’s not an instant thing though. Reading recommendations or asking around has honestly been the best way for me to figure out options that work. I want to continue to share more about some of the products I am swapping for cleaner alternatives in case it can benefit some of you as well. Today let’s cover 5 personal care items I’ve swapped for safer alternatives.


Money saving tips for every day life.

April 18, 2018

This post is in partnership with American Express, and all opinions are our own.

As you know, I love finding money saving hacks. A few years ago Gabe and I did a good deal of credit card research to see which could help us rack up savings, and American Express is what we landed on. We have used Amex for business and travel purchases, so we were both onboard when we heard about some of the new perks that come with the Amex EveryDay card. We’re excited to partner with them and share with you some of aspects of the Card we are taking advantage of!


An intro to Brandless.

April 12, 2018


When I heard about Brandless, I was immediately intrigued. How could everything on the site only be $3?! A few friends told me about this company in the same week so I knew I had to check it out.

I was working on getting our guest bathroom ready for guests, so I went ahead and decided to stock it with items I found on the Brandless website, and was really impressed after having a closer look. Everything is the same quality as you at local stores, the items cost less. What Brandless does is remove all of the BrandTax (which is the hidden costs you pay for a national brand). We’ve been trained to believe these costs increase quality, but they rarely do. The average person pays at least 40% more for products of comparable quality. (I love that they put importance into keeping their products non-GMO, fair trade, kosher, gluten free, no added sugar, and even a selection of organic options.)

Master bedroom update.

April 11, 2018


I think we often put a lot of our time and resources into our living room and kitchen areas because it is where we spend the most time. I totally underestimated how much a difference it would make to put some effort into our master bedroom. It is the only room in the house that usually isn’t ransacked with legos, cars, and magna tiles. It is a space we can retreat to at night and start off on the right foot in the morning in a peaceful environment. Granted, it rarely stays clean, but what an oasis it has been for us!

Happy Friday.

April 6, 2018


We started plans for our laundry room in the basement. Every home project takes weeks to complete as I am learning, but the thought of having space wider than the size of the actual washer and dryer is all the motivation I need. Pinned a few ideas to get us started here.
