Folding a Fitted Sheet

Nothing like a mind-blowing hump day! Let me explain… because that sounded bad. So I’m scrolling through my news feed this AM and I stumbled on a shared post, by a friend’s Mom, related to folding fitted sheets. Ah fitted sheets. The most annoying article to pull out of the dryer and fold. How can you fold something without corners! All my life I thought I knew how to fold fitted sheets… until I watched this: My approach has always been to definitely tuck the corners into each other, but instead of laying it down to create a flat rectangle out … Continue reading Folding a Fitted Sheet

Kitchen Domestication Chronicles

My friend Peter posted this last night on Facebook and I could not agree more, If I could sell the feeling of laying in my bed right now, I’d be the wealthiest person ever. Although I’d edit it a bit, and say something like “if I could sell the feeling of just being home all weekend…”, there’s still nothing better than being home. Along with choosing to stay home though comes hunger and binge snacking whilst binge watching Netflix. Since I knew I’d be home all weekend, and don’t normally have anything in my fridge other than these items, I … Continue reading Kitchen Domestication Chronicles

Summer Hacks I’ve Never Thought Of

Hello friends and Happy End-of-July. I know, I know… Summer’s almost over! But don’t fret because we still have August and you should totally make the best of it since it will probably fly by too. Get to the beach. Have that BBQ. Do that outdoorsy date. Watch the sunset by a waterfront with a beer and a Jason Mraz Pandora station playing in the background. Whatever you do, do it now. Do not delay another day because before you know it, it will be Labor Day, then Columbus Day and then Winter. Moreover, make August awesome, and easy! I … Continue reading Summer Hacks I’ve Never Thought Of

Room Makeover: TJMaxx Inspiration

What better way to spend a Sunday morning than moseying through TJMaxx at the new beautiful outdoor mall near mi casa, Ridge Hill. By choice 7-8 years ago, my bedroom walls are a Pepto Bismol pink. That has to change… like yesterday. I’ve spent the last couple of months pinning photos of how I can make over my room to reflect a more-mature ME bedroom that I do not want to leave every morning. I’ve been slow to kickoff the project because I’d like someone to give me an idea of how to rearrange everything but I’m going to just give it a go … Continue reading Room Makeover: TJMaxx Inspiration

DIY: How to Make Handmade Postcards

Originally posted on Prada For Breakfast:
Snail mail is one of my favorite things to receive. There’s nothing like opening your mailbox and (after sorting through all the junk catalogues and bills) finding a letter from one of your best friends, or even a Christmas card from distant relatives. There’s a quality to handwritten mail (and postcards, short as they may be) that just can’t be surpassed with smart phones, Facebook, and tweets. As far as postcards are concerned, they’re super easy to send and require much less effort than letters, but are just as wonderful to receive! In my… Continue reading DIY: How to Make Handmade Postcards

Before You Throw It Out

I’m a big believer in great brands; companies and manufactures that make great products. I used to only think this in regards to my more expensive purchases, but I learned recently that a great brand/company that sticks to great customer service values will always take care of you while standing by their product with a lifetime guarantee, no ifs ands or buts. I don’t know if it’s just me but I refuse to spend $15 or $120 on a product by a reputable manufacturer and have it fall apart in a matter of months. That is NOT OK in my book, ever. Furthermore, most companies will … Continue reading Before You Throw It Out

The New Cube: When to Post Up Your Own Goodies

November 30th was one of the saddest days of my career to-date, leaving MWW Group and all the new friends I made there. I said goodbye to one year of learning the PR world and New Business Development in-and-out, great relationship building, professionally and on friendship level, for a new opportunity at Fairway Market. A bittersweet move but professionally I know it is a big step forward for me, therefore I must push the sadness aside, and conquer this new job just as I had at MWW. First Day Jitters It was much like the first day at a new … Continue reading The New Cube: When to Post Up Your Own Goodies

DIY Neti Pot for Those in Mucous City

Guest Blogger: Kerri Zupp @kzupp “I am just a nice girl trying to make it in this crazy, crazy world.  I like road trips without directions and I love dogs more than humans. I heart nasal irrigation almost as much as overusing hashtags.” _______________________________________________________________________ After being sick with relentless SINUSITIS for a week now, I decided enough was enough and to get to the doctor.  Doc was quick to write out a script for the obvious z-pack (boo, I can’t drink for 5 days), but also stressed the importance of using a Neti pot 2-3x daily. For some time now I’ve been … Continue reading DIY Neti Pot for Those in Mucous City

Eggs, Fabergé Style

No. Not scrambled, sunny-side up, or over-easy…but Fabergé. As in the Russian Fabergé egg; one of the thousands of jeweled eggs made by the House of Fabergé from 1885 to 1917. “Most were miniature eggs that were popular gifts at Eastertide. They were worn on a neck chain either singly or in groups. The most famous eggs produced by the House were the larger ones made for Alexander III and Nicholas II of Russia; these are often referred to as the ‘Imperial’ Fabergé eggs… The eggs are made of precious metals or hard stones decorated with combinations of enamel and gem stones. The Fabergé egg has become a symbol of luxury, and the eggs are … Continue reading Eggs, Fabergé Style
