6 Benefits of Hydrogen Peroxide
 
 
  1. Clean your counters with peroxide to kill germs & add a fresh smell
  2. Do the same after rinsing your wooden cutting board (kills salmonella and other bacteria)
  3. Laundry: Add a cup to your 'whites' in lieu of bleach (some people use in addition to bleach) to whiten whites
  4. Natural highlights: Spray a 50/50(water & HP mixture) on wet hair after a shower, comb through for gradual lightening
  5. Mix with baking soda to form an inexpensive DIY whitening toothpaste
  6. Soak/wash vegetables to kill bacteria and neutralize chemials
There are many more suggested uses and theories as to the benefits of hydrogen peroxide, the above are some I've found to be tried and true!

Mani Monday

Pin It
 
Today I experienced the wonderful moment you go to update 'Mani Monday' and realize the label is no longer on your polish.  :(
 
This is one of my favorite pinks which you can often find on my toes, but beyond telling you I love it as there's no label let's talk about how to REMOVE polish from something important other than your nails ! ;)

Puppy Haul ! =)

Puppy Haul!
 
Make sure you read to the end for special pics/cameo! ;)

Our little man needed some new things to keep him occupied. As cute and cuddly as we all THINK they are, they can turn into little monsters without something to focus their energy and attention. :-/



The first thing I purchased was a new bed. One night he decided to make a head-hole(that's right a hole he could stick his head through) in his old bed, so he was in need of a new one.

 
He gave it a tail wag up (get it, like a thumbs up!) LOL..I don't have a link for you guys but here's a VERY COOL BED for those of you with bigger pups
 
Want to see what else we got him, click to follow the jump!

Happy Monday polish fiends!
 
While I've been enjoying, or not so much enjoying the past week and a 1/2 of dentist visits which sadly is continued later today I thought I'd share my current favorite color..

 


Used: 2 Coats

It's a coral/melon color from Wet n' Wild's "Shine" Collection. Though summer's coming to an end(in 5 days) it's a nice vibrant coral that I plan to continue wearing during fall.

Good To Know: It's Toluene, Formaldehyde & Phthalate free

Find out what that mean's for your health after the jump

Family Lunch

Pin It Hi Guys! I had my father over for lunch yesterday and thought I'd share some pics of the food I made! (all homemade as usual) ! <3

Salad, Roasted Chicken, French Bread

 
He made a homemade cheesecake. The top is a little more browned than usual but I was still very excited he made one!
 
Interested in seeing a few more dishes I've made this week?

Other Ways to Use a Toothbrush

Pin It
A toothbrush is definately considered one of my 'staple' tools, not only for keeping those 'pearly whites,' white, but they can be used for makeup, hair, around the house etc. Here's a few ways you can use yours:


 
1. Flatten flyaways ( hair)
2. Exfoliate chapped lips (beauty)
3. Clean grout & shower corners(household)
4. Grooming eyebrows (beauty)
5. Clean appliance vents (household)
 

Obviously you don't want to use the one you brush your teeth with ;) so make sure to pick one up here or at your local store.

Vegetarian Options!

Pin It Hi guys! So this post is kind of random BUT we went grocery shopping yesterday, and I've noticed regular chains (i.e. NOT Trader's Joes, Whole Foods, etc) are finally starting to up their vegetarian options beyond frozen veggie burgers! :)


 


 
By far the best tomato I've ever seen lol!
