Coffee Mugs

I love coffee mugs. My husband says I have a coffee mug addiction. I walk in to a store and walk out with a mug. I wanted to share some great mugs from Etsy. How adorable are these unique coffee mugs? 

Even after 4 years of marriage I still get excited about custom items with my last name or wedding date on them. These wedding coffee mugs are a great self purchase or would make for a great wedding gift.

Mason Jar Storage

I've been getting organized this week. I made a big decision this week to ditch the boxes! One, they were taking up unnecessary space and two they were an eye sore. I had several mason jars stored and decided they would make perfect storage pieces for items like beans, chocolate chips, toothpicks, tea bags, baking powder, corn starch, sweetener packets etc. 

The first step was to transfer all the goods into the mason jars, that was simple. Next, I used a piece of card stock craft paper to make some labels. I typed up the labels on my computer, printed them out and used a circle cutter to cut 2" circles. 

The final step was to attach the labels to the lids. For this I used glue dots, they will be easy to detach when I need to swap out the contents. Here is the final product! 

Switching from the boxes to the mason jars freed up a ton of space in my pantry and they are super cute.  Check the items in your pantry and see if they are mason jar worthy. Be inspired and create!

Mascara Showdown

Sometimes I feel overwhelmed by the amount of choices I have when choosing makeup. I'm super picky about my eyeliner and my mascara! I have three mascara choices, all different brands, that I love! Let's check out the competition. 

Mascara Showdown

Why I Love: This is my first true love. I used this mascara in my high school and college days. I still use it occasionally, but switch it out every now and then. This mascara is great for bold dark lashes. 

Why I Love: Like L'oreal's Voluminous, this mascara is also great for bold, dark lashes. It does a decent job at lengthening lashes, but towards the end of the day you may notice some flaking. 

Why I Love: I stumbled upon this product by accident, but this is the best mascara I've ever used for lengthening and separating lashes! It isn't the darkest or boldest mascara, but definitely gives you  great length and separation. If you want to maximize your lashes I suggest using Cover Girls Volume Extract as a base and finishing up with L'oreal's Voluminous or Maybelline's Mega Plush. 

Go ahead, give them a try. If you have mascara you love, I'd love to know what you use! Be inspired and create!

The Best Eye Makeup Remover

Never buy eye makeup remover again! I discovered the best eye makeup remover for as little as $3.00 that will last for years! What is this best kept secret? Vaseline. I started using Vaseline a few months ago and it is the best eye makeup remover I've ever used. It removes your makeup easily leaving your eyes smooth and moisturized. 

If you need a cheap yet highly effective makeup remover you definitely need to try this. Be inspired and create!

Tips and Tricks: How to clean glass without the streaks

I learned a useful trick years ago and I'm not sure if many others know this little secret, so I thought I'd share. Do you know how to clean glass without leaving streaks? No? Well the secret is simple, you clean it with newspaper. Yes, newspaper. Spray your cleaner and wipe with newspaper. Your streaks will be gone!
