Today I’m sharing another easy gift you can make that’s both simple and cheap. All you need is brown sugar, baby oil, essential oil, jelly jars and honey. I didn’t use the regular run-of-the-mill honey either – I decided to use Don Victor because I wanted a special ingredient that would make the final product special as well. I love how in each jar of Don Victor honey, there is a honeycomb in there as well.

For me, It just adds a natural aspect to the whole honey experience. I guess I’m just not used to stuff like this!

In a small bowl, combine 1 cup of baby oil, 1/2 cup of brown sugar & 1/4 cup of Don Victor honey. Add in 1 teaspoon of essential oil fragrance and mix well. Spoon it into the small jam jars and seal them.

Last but not least, seal up the jar and tie on one of my printable labels on some card stock. The recipe above will yield about 3 small jars.

Don’t expect to find this awesome stuff where all the other honey products are located. I found this particular brand tucked away among all the hispanic foods at Walmart.

Getting my EPIC holiday mess clean with the help of my Eureka suction seal vacuum

Getting my EPIC mess clean for the holidays with Eureka - #EurekaPower #Cbias #shop

It seems no matter how hard I try, weekends at home can be some of our biggest mess-making days of the week. I’m guessing its because everyone is home at the same time, each doing their respective thing. Last week, I had one of the messier weekends, and that was because we spent the day Christmas decorating.

From pulling boxes down from the attic and unpacking them, I created a pretty big mess before I even got started! The worst of it was the pine needles from the christmas tree and all the glitter from decorations. The one thing I had that helped me keep this great christmas mess in check was my new Eureka Suction Seal 2.0 Vacuum.

I was thrilled to see that it was on rollback at Walmart when I was out shopping for Christmas presents from $149 to $129! That’s a total steal AND a huge help in getting my house in shape for all the guests coming in.

There was a little bit of assembly required, but with the simple instructions provided in the box I had the vacuum put together and working within 15 minutes. I had to get up all these messy pine needles that littered my living room floor!! I love that it has a detachable canister on the front, so no need for bags. Plus, it just looks pretty!

So about that mess….

Atleast the tree isn’t a real one – those shed like crazy, even if it does gives your home that pine tree aroma. The Eureka 2.0 suction seal vacuum easily picked up everything without having to go over it more than once. The suction seal maintains suction against the surface its vacuuming and the airspeed technology uses a wide tube of air with minimal bends and twists that allows air to move freely across a shorter and more direct path. I didn’t stop there – I decided to give the kitchen a vacuum as well since breakfast just took place in there and I was sure there was a mess ready for me to sweep up anyway.

Of course, I was right – crushed fruit loops under JP’s chair as usual.

So I brought over my Eureka Vacuum from the living room, and got to work. Cleared up the mess perfectly! I love how easily it glides over the tiles – saved me the trouble of getting out the old fashioned broom for sweeping.Getting my EPIC mess clean for the holidays with Eureka - #EurekaPower #Cbias #shop

WIN a CottageCare® House Cleaning Session GIVEAWAY and Enjoy a break from house cleaning for the holidays!

I received a visit from CottageCare® House cleaning in exchange for writing about their fabulous services and hosting a giveaway.

Between working, cooking, taking care of the kids, going to Christmas parties &  shopping for presents - who has time to clean? House Cleaning is still a necessary chore, and I do it as best I can – only it doesn’t always get done as well as it should. There’s only so much time in one given day, so what’s a mom to do?

Running a house is a lot like running a business, from balancing a checkbook to micro managing littles, it can be exhausting – especially when you already have a job! Slowly, I’m beginning to realize that my little business definitely needs to outsource some jobs to help me maintain sanity. The first one that comes to mind is Cleaning!

I had the pleasure of getting a visit from CottageCare® House cleaning services here in the Plano area, and I couldn’t have been more thrilled with the job they have done. I’ve had other cleaning services before that charge you a ton of money, stay for 90 minutes and give your home a lick and a prayer. Because they stay on a limited timeframe, they miss key elements that I wish would have been cleaned. CottageCare® will get on their hands and knees and polish your furniture.

PLANO / RICHARDSON TEXAS GIVEAWAY - CottageCare® house cleaning - $149 value!!

They’ll even make your bed too!
