    The Best Cosmetics Organizer

    What was a spur of the moment purchase years ago at Ikea, has ended up being one of the best investments I have made. These organizers are a life saver. I fall somewhere between being a messy person and a tidy person. If something has a place, I stay organized. If I don’t have a place for everything, a mess can get out of hand. For makeup, cosmetics, and hair accessories, these organizers have saved me. They made a bathroom drawer that could have become chaos into a well oiled organized machine. A dresser top that could have become covered haphazardly structured and organized. Like most things, I didn’t appreciate…

    Plants Even I Can’t Kill

    There once was a fiddle-leaf fig tree in my house… it is no longer. After bringing it home from Ikea, its leaves were one by one turning brown and falling off. I read somewhere that they like humidity, so in an attempt to revive it, I took it into the bathroom while I showered. When I put it back in its regular spot it went even more downhill, lost all of its leaves and died. I later read the worst thing for them is shocks in temperature or condition… whoopsies. Needless to say, I am not a plant whisperer and do not have a green thumb, but I do enjoying…
