Copycat West Elm Oil & Vinegar Bottle

So you guys know me, I am a cheap lady. I call it being “fiscally responsible” but really all that means is that we just bought a house and a dog, and another cat and we are going to Europe in October so we need to find ways to save money. That being said, I am a consumer, and I can understand the wants and desires for all the pretty and expensive things we come across on the internet. Recently, I was hunting for an oil and vinegar set since we have never had a proper one and I thought it…

D.I.Y. All Natural // Windex

A few months back, A and I moved into our first home and it was magical. Well, for us it was anyways. For some I guess you could say it was an absolute nightmare. Our house was very affordable and you could say it fell into the category of a “fixer upper”. The house isn’t terribly old, built in 1995, but I am not exaggerating when I say it literally looked like it had never been cleaned. It also had a puke green kitchen, grease soak cabinets, some holes in the wall and moldy laminate floors, but we’ll get to…

D.I.Y. Your Own Recycling Station

When it comes to recycling, I can be a bit of a control freak. Like yelling at strangers in public to pick up their recyclables kind of control freak….it is seriously bad.

I am however, a little more lenient in my understanding of why people fail to recycle complicated things such as light bulbs and ink cartridges. Now I am by no means saying that recycling those items is not…

Rose Petal Bath Bombs D.I.Y.

There is nothing I love more than receiving a surprise bouquet of roses. It is sweet, thoughtful, and it makes the house smell great and feel amazingly homey. The only problem is that I can be a seriously nostalgic person, and parting with said flowers once they’ve reached their expiration date can leave me feeling blue. Not to mention I have a total phobia of wasting anything so I get way bummed composting flowers. That is why this year I decided to find a way to utilize my Valentine’s Day flowers as much as possible. I will be posting this…

Minimalistic Flower Bucket D.I.Y.

My biggest obsession 90% of the time is how soon I can go to Goodwill, what I can buy from Goodwill, maybe I could get that at Goodwill. Not only does thrift shopping same your exorbitant amounts of money, it always helps you find some cool treasures that you never expected to find or find unique items that you can D.I.Y. into something else. Today’s post is the latter.  I found the most ridiculous (and heinous) snowman themed Christmas bucket a few months back (in March) and brought it home. Needless to say, A was a little confused at why…
