party favor sneak peek

Elle and I have started making one of the party favors for her Valentine party....sequin heart hair clips for the girls. I came across this post at Grosgrain Fabulous and loved the idea.

things i love

Do you find yourself looking for blog posts when you google something you're interested in? I definitely do. I like seeing real people's thoughts and reviews on a product or idea. For some reason, they just seem more trustworthy.

Today I've been thinking about a particular cleaning product I love and use all the time.

I use this on everything in every room of my house: granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, sinks, cabinets, mirrors, faucets, glass, furniture... Not only does it work really well, but I love that I just need one product to clean so many different things.

And while on the topic of cleaning...a quick tip for cleaning glass and mirrors I just tried and loved. I don't know about you, but I have a hard time getting the spray spots from hair products etc. completely cleaned off my mirrors. And our glass shower doors never seem to be completely spotless. I've tried a ton of different products trying to superclean the shower with only ok results...until I tried rubbing alcohol and a straight razor blade. The spots, soap scum, residue just scraped away...cleanest I've seen our shower in years. :)

these girls make me laugh

Eating lunch together.

Waiting for Dad to get home.

Liv and her accessories...when I left her on the couch upstairs she was fully dressed no accessories. Next thing I know she's coming downstairs to find me - no pants and princess crown. For Liv, she's not fully dressed until she has a necklace, hat, crown, glasses, bracelet...
