The Easiest Way to Whiten Your Teeth at Home + a Giveaway!

Are you self conscious about your smile? Do you feel like your teeth could be whiter? As a fashion blogger, I feel like my smile is not as bright as it should be due to my love of coffee. I have tried the "white strips" you can buy over the counter with lackluster results. I do not have the time or money for expensive whitening treatments done at the dentist's office, so what is a girl to do?

Do you feel like your teeth could be whiter? Whiten at home with Smile Brilliant's professional teeth whitening kit!

Bible Journaling - Using Rubber Stamps

This post contains affiliate links, which means I receive a small financial compensation if you make a purchase using this link

I recently showed you how you can trace in your Bible if you feel like you cannot draw. Another way to decorate your Bible pages if you are not artistic is by using rubber stamps. I have come to love rubber stamps and they are so easy to use and come in a variety of sizes, shapes, and words! Here is how I used stamps to journal Psalm 23.

Our Basement Renovation - How to Remove Ceramic Tile

We are actually nearing the end of our basement renovation and I have recently revealed the finished bathroom, but I am taking a step back for a moment. I was looking through my pictures on my phone and ran across the ones I took during our tile removal in the mud room and realized I had not shared this project yet. That is what happens when you have way too many projects going on and are trying to document and share them all.

Myrtle Beach Vacation Recap

Every year we take a family trip to Myrtle Beach, SC with my dad, sister, and her family of 6. We stay the Sands Ocean Club each year and mostly visit the same places. Today I am sharing my beach style, along with some of the fun things to do, in case you ever visit Myrtle Beach!

My goal for the week was to read an entire book...which I did! But, in addition to spending time on the beach, we did get some shopping in, filled our bellies at our fave restaurants, and celebrated our wedding anniversary.

We recently finished our guest bathroom in the basement, so now I get to finally accessorize it! Since we spent our entire budget and more on the reno, I had to find budget friendly decor, which means DIY projects.

What I am Wearing - Lace Up Maxi Dress

Maxi dresses are a staple in my closet year round. They can easily be dressed up or down and are perfect on days when you do not feel like shaving (am I right?) Today I am sharing a heather grey maxi dress with a lace up front from PinkBlush.

Maxi dresses are a staple in my closet year round. They can easily be dressed up or down like this one from Pink Blush!

The best part about this dress is that it is under $50 and has POCKETS! It is super cute with striped sneakers like I am wearing here or you can add sandals and a statement necklace to dress it up.

VBS on a Budget - Back to Basics

I have been working in VBS for over 16 years and have been the Director for at least 7 or 8 years (I lose track after a while!) and have tried about every idea out there for having a successful VBS. We have spent close to a thousand dollars on materials and decor, spent countless hours building huge set pieces, and tried all types of gimmicks to make VBS great for the kids. A few years ago, we decided to go back to the basics for VBS. Our goal was to focus on the message to the kids and spend as little as possible on decor, games, and crafts. Let me tell you, it is so much less stressful and the kids enjoy the VBS experience just as much!

Here is how we pulled off  our Geared Up for God VBS with just the basics.

Basement Guest Bathroom Reveal and Budget Friendly Decor

I am partnering with Oriental Trading to show you some budget friendly ways to decorate your bathroom. 

I honestly was beginning to think this day would never come! It was a little over 2 years ago when we marked out our bathroom layout with painter's tape and broke ground for the underground plumbing. Now, we have a gorgeous full bath and changing area for us and our guests that come to enjoy our pool!

I am finally revealing our basement guest bathroom and how I decorated it on a shoestring budget!

What I am Wearing - Floppy Summer Hat

Even though summer is coming to an end, there is still time to catch some rays at the beach or by the pool. Even though I love being in the sun, as I get older I realize I need to protect my face more than ever. In addition to sunscreen, I have recently started wearing floppy sun hats. This spring, I added the Albany hat from Aventura to my collection and it has been a staple in my beach bag this summer.

How to Create an Inspiring Office Space

If you are like me, you probably spend quite a bit of time in front of your computer. Because of this, I want my office space to be organized, functional, and inspiring. You may remember I stole a corner of our Living Room to create an office nook several months ago.

Create an Inspiring Office Space with colorful accessories.

Now that I have been working there for a while, I have made a few changes to the original space to make it more inspiring and functional.

DIY Sliding Barn Style Door From a Slab

We recently added a  laundry room in our basement and knew we wanted to use a sliding barn style door to maximize space. If you have shopped around, you will know that Barn Doors and the hardware to hang them with is super expensive, so we decided to DIY our own using a slab and pocket door hardware.
