A "Clean Teeth" Kit! 13 Jul 2017

A "Clean Teeth" Kit!

As adults, we are the worst with oral health. Work, life, kids, and schedules get in the way and our own once good habits fall by the wayside. We often get lazy and forget to floss, fall behind on scheduling our dentist appointments, or fall asleep by accident on the couch by 8pm consumed by exhaustion and miss a tooth brushing before bed. 

When I was pregnant (both times), I remember how much I was told to keep up good oral hygiene because it can affect your baby, too. Believe it or not, up to 70% of pregnant women get gingivitis from changes in hormone levels during pregnancy. If you’re thinking about starting a family, pregnant or recently had a baby, a daily oral health routine is an important way to ensure healthy teeth and gums during pregnancy.

So today, we've teamed up with Crest and Oral-B, in partnership with the March of Dimes, to create this Clean Teeth Kit which gives you a fun and easy place to keep all of your oral hygiene items so you can see them and be reminded to use them. For me, if something isn't out right in front of my face, I will forget about it (i.e. when you keep floss in your bathroom drawer instead of on the bathroom counter you are less likely to floss!). Here's how to make it...

color-blocked floating shelves... 6 Jun 2017

color-blocked floating shelves

It's no secret we love color-blocking around here. It's an easy way to add interest to a wall with color. Adding a simple floating shelf can make any wall more decorative and functional. But...it looks especially good when you paint the shelves to match your wall. And then it looks even cooler when the wall is color-blocked! Here are some examples...


from this to that: earrings to brooch! 5 Jun 2017


We love coming up with ways to use things simply in unexpected ways! This is not as much of a DIY (like our last From This to That) as it is a style tip. You know when you see those dangly earrings that are super pretty but you know if you were to wear them, they would be too big or to heavy on your ears? Well, simply turn them into a brooch!

from this to that: earrings to brooch!

I came up with this idea because I alway want to be that person who can rock some amazing statement earrings but I can never keep them on for more than an hour and always go back to my dainty stud earrings. So, one day, I decided to attach them to my jacket and have been doing it ever since!

from this to that: earrings to brooch!

You can use just one statement piece, but we like it best when layered with a few other smaller earrings or pins as well!
