Lysol Power & Free Review


Lysol Power & Free I have the best job I was compensated to clean my bathroom and I was provided the Lysol Power & Free Multi Purpose Spray to do it with. That really isn't the best part. I have a  huge problem with most cleaners they contain bleach. I am not sure what it is about bleach but I automatically get a headache if it is used in my house. I swear. My husband thought that I just said that to get out of cleaning until I told him to call my mom and she confirmed that bleach makes … [Read more...]

Homemaking Tips: Let’s Do This….Rust or Shine?


Let’s Do This….Rust or Shine? I know that it seems like one of the hardest things to get rid of is rust. The worst spot for me is the ledge in the shower, however recently I have spotted some in my stainless steel kitchen sink. I looked everywhere for remedies to get rid of rust, and the only thing I came across was lemon juice and salt.

Those carnival things can kill someone!’ L Well, as fun as he really can be, it is just like the fair in my opinion. … [Read more...]

The Beauty of Tantrums


A week or so back I saw one of my new-mother friends having a really rough time. She was a first time mom, nervous to be alone with new baby (then again aren’t we all?), scared to go anywhere with new baby, but most of all….new baby would not go to sleep. She was living on a couple hours of sleep daily, as her beautiful new baby would not calm down enough to sleep more than a couple hours at a time. As much as I hurt for her I realized….she is not the only woman out there who wants to pull … [Read more...]

Life isn’t perfect, there are bumps in the road, and once we realize that everyone around us has their imperfect moments, we will all be a bit happier...Cause guess what MOMS?! None of us are perfect no matter how hard we … [Read more...]
