Motivated Moms & OOTD

As a stay at home mom for quite a few year now I have come up with many methods of how I clean my house, in what order, what days for certain tasks etc etc. As many of you can relate this gets pretty tedious and monotonous at times. The praise the lord I stumbled across the motivated moms app on my iphone and presto…..the organizational method that my OCD brain craved had finally been found!!! I highly recommend it. There are 2 options: one being the app that you can download on to your iphone and other smartphones or you can go straight to their web site and purchase the printable package which is what I have done because I like things to be on paper. I use a 3 hole punch and add to a 3 ring binder. You can add custom tasks to the app version, add rooms, color code specific chores and assign them to people. You have daily chores, weekly chores etc and they are all listed for you. It’s a no brainer and if your brain craves organization like mine does then you will LOVE it. Check it out and let me know what you think…..

Our Christmas Tree This Year & OOTD

So this year I decided to change it up a little. We have been hanging the same old tired ornaments on our tree for about the past 6 years. Random ornaments that accumulate over time, no design scheme, just blah!

So an hour and $300 later 😦 I bought a theme for my tree and voila…..turquoise, silver, and pink. I am quite thrilled with it (and don’t think that the picture does it full justice). So here’s to another 6 years πŸ˜‰

Funky Leggings & OOTD

So sorry for the prolonged absence, the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting in Newtown, CT really got to me. I spent the first week after it experiencing mixed emotions that ranged from profound sadness and grief to shock, disbelief and the likes. I feel ready to get back to connecting with you guys and to turn this frown upside down!

So, there are some leggings available in the boutique and while they have seemed to be pretty popular I just don’t think I could pull them off personally. I admire all the funky fashionistas that can pull these bad boys off. Shiny and black/silver leopard print! You can check them out here
Let me know what you think, and how you would style them.

Nail Polish Review & OOTD


This weeks review is of a nail polish by Wet & Wild from the Spoiled line and the color is called 2 weeks sober!

Honestly I only bought this because at CVS the polishes were buy 1 get 1 free and at only $1.99 I thought that was a pretty good deal. I wasn’t expecting much from the polish as it is a less expensive brand, but I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised! The polish was not weak or watery so it provided great color and cover without multiple layers. It has a nice shine to it without a top coat and the applicator blush was a nice thicker square shape instead of the sometimes flimsy thin pointy brushes.

So thumbs up from me on this one!

Now on to my ootd…..




I am really struggling with the lighting/mirror placement in my bedroom…..hence the pics from different sides of the room trying to find the right light!
