Keeping our bathroom looking chic with Listerine

This post brought to you by Listerine. All opinions are 100% mine.

I've talked before about my front bathroom's little facelift, and for under $300 I was able to add some style and color without changing anything major. I took it from a sterile, bland looking room and transformed it into a fun space for JP to enjoy. Since he was getting old enough to use the bathroom on his own, I thought he needed something colorful that would appeal to his needs. After all, I wanted to entice him into good personal hygiene habits!

Looking back, I thought potty training was difficult… But teaching this kid to properly brush his teeth has been a major headache for me! Sure, he can squeeze out toothpaste on to his brush by himself- but only about 1/2 of it actually makes it ON the brush. Then after 3 quick strokes, he spits out the excess into the sink, leaving behind his clumps of gnarly used toothpaste to sit on the bottom of the sink.

Naturally after a few of these experiences, I've decided that I should brush my teeth along with him and show him the example I expect out of him cause old toothpaste stuck to the bottom of the sink grosses me out.

I like to use a mouthwash after I brush, and I've found the cutest ones from Target that are perfect to match my bathroom. For a limited time, you can choose from 4 different designs and flavors – Cool Mint, Fresh Mint, Arctic Mint & Fresh Citrus. 


I love how it looks on my bathroom counter! The flavor matters not to me that much, but I thought the orange chevron one would look adorable! Be sure to check out Target and see what they have available in your area or Save Now with Target Cartwheel!

DIY home painting has never been easier with FrogTape® for textured walls

This post brought to you by FrogTape Brand Painter’s Tape. All opinions are 100% mine.

I've been getting busy this past week around the house, completing a bunch of DIY projects that I've been wanting to finish for ages. It all started with my DIY ikea nightstands (which I will share once they are finished) to the mini bathroom fixer-up and finally a workspace makeover for me. 

I got the awesome opportunity to try using FrogTape® that's meant for use on textured walls like mine. So easy to use!! Just apply, moisten, seal & paint!

Previously, I had the walls painted a pea-green color to compliment the bronze tones from when this space used to be a dining room. I decided to cover the wall with a thick coat of charcoal grey so that my white expedit desk will pop nicely against the wall. The FrogTape® I used was really helpful in creating a sharp, clean line – even on my textured walls! See my FrogTape how-to below to see how its done!

No problem for the FrogTape® – it easily blocked off all the parts it needed to block off. I started with my masked off pea-green walls, applied tape & sealer and painted. When I peeled off the tape, I was left with a perfect sharp line! I was so pleased with how well it turned out!

FrogTape® has what no other tape has – the benefit of their PaintBlock® technology that keeps a sharp line, especially on those uneven textured walls.

Learn to Gro Something Greater by making a kitchen herb garden with Miracle-Gro

This post brought to you by Miracle-Gro. All opinions are 100% mine.

Since starting this blog a long time ago, I've learned alot about how to cook. I've come a long way since my microwave dinner days, yet I certainly don't consider myself a master chef… yet. However, I don't believe that it takes a master chef to appreciate having fresh herbs available when making something yummy. I've come to love having my fresh herb plants growing freely in my kitchen's windowsill. There's something to be said for having the fresh aroma of basil, especially when I'm cutting tomatoes. Plus, its pretty to look at and adds some greenery!

I'm not always the best at keeping plants, I sometimes forget to water them every day or open the shades for them when I'm not home. So I've experimented alot, and after trying different fertilizers and soil types, i've found that Miracle-Gro soil tends to retain moisture the best. This helps a great deal so when I'm forgetful, it doesn't cost me my plant's life. 

It's pretty important to maintain the four essential factors for growing plants:

1. Adequate light

2. Breezy air

3. Water

4. The right temperature

This is the secret recipe for your plants to thrive and grow well. Without these 4 essential factors needed for a plant to grow, it will easily wither and die if its lacking in any. This is why I like to grow my herbs on the kitchen windowsill – because the light is perfect, the air can easily breeze in, the sink is conveniently there and it's always a balmy temperature. With all that, I can always expect to have plenty of fresh basil on hand! 

So what do you grow in your garden? Do you do something special to keep your plants happy? Please share! I'd love to hear about it! Be sure to visit Miracle-Gro and see how you can Gro Something Greater with all the wonderful tips shared by thousands of people who love to grow.
