Smooth Shave Moisturizing Leg Scrub

 Smooth Shave Moisturizing Leg Scrub

Now that the weather is getting cooler, my skin is getting drier. I hate the tight and itchy feel of having dry skin. It gets even worse when I shave, plus my skin doesn’t feel as smooth as it should. Over the years I’ve tried all sorts of things to get smoother legs, but nothing really helped. I was on a mission to get the smoothest, most moisturized legs I could get. I found a regiment that works great and my legs are perfectly smoothed. Having smooth legs during the colder weather is always a plus (wink wink). Here … Read More...

My husband and I have been married for about five years and we never really got to spend the holidays at home with just us. We’re either visiting family or he is away for work. Whenever we do get a chance to be together for the holidays, we make traditions for our own little family. For Thanksgiving we go on family walks (usually a couple of miles) early in the morning before things get to busy. It … Read More...

Using Henna for Hair Dye

 Using Henna for Hair Dye

My hair has been natural for a little over three years now. When I say natural I mean I haven’t put any harmful chemicals in my hairs, such as dyes or relaxers. I actually haven’t dyed my hair in over eight years! Yeah, that is a long time! I started dying my hair when I was in junior high and I always kept color in it. When I decided to stop dying my hair I kept trimming it to get the dye out, so I could start fresh. I dyed my hair so much that I literally forgot what … Read More...

5 Hostess Holiday Gifts

Growing up, during the holidays we had family gatherings at least a couple times a week. Since my husband nor I live near our hometowns, we often go home to visit for the holidays. We bounce from house to house making sure we get to see everybody while we’re in town. No matter whose house we visit, there’s plenty of food to go around. I always like to bring something special when we visit others’ houses, but sometimes it’s … Read More...

Antique Dresser Into Sunroom Bar Redo

Antique Dresser Into Sunroom Bar Redo

I’ve wanted to share this project with you all for a while now. It’s just a small part to an even bigger project, but I want you to see what’s been keeping me so busy. We have a sunroom in our house and I had no idea what to do with the space. I let my son use half of the room as a playroom. It’s carpeted, has its own ac system, and keeps all of his toys out of my living room so I don’t mind sharing.

My husband and I went to a thrift store a few weeks … Read More...

5 Tips for Relocating Out of State

5 Tips for Relocating Out of State

We’re getting ready to hit the road again. It’s been a short six months here in Virginia, but now it’s time for us to move on to the next duty station. It seems that I just finished unpacking and now we’re doing it all over again. I’m actually sitting in our hotel room as I’m typing this. The movers came last week and we’ve been in a hotel the past few days.

I’ve moved on average every three years since I’ve been born and I’m no expert on relocating, but there are a few things I’ve learned along the way. … Read More...
