diy w/ shari : Faux Wood Panel Bathroom Shelves

Four Words : Older home. Small bathrooms. I have a lot of “stuff”, so I NEEDED shelves in my bathroom. On an IKEA run, I came across some shelves on sale for $3 and plastic brackets for 50c each. I grabbed them, not really planning to do anything to them. Oh wait, I actually was planning to […]

diy w/ shari : Deer Wallmount with Floral Crown

Long story short, I bought a house last year! 🤗🏡 2016 was a helluva year, but I was blessed enough to have set a goal of buying a house in 2016 and actually doing it! I might blog about the process later, but for now, I’m excited about all of the Pinterest inspired DIY projects […]

kitchen beautician: strengthening hair after shedding & breakage

I don’t know if this is really considered “jambalaya”.. maybe its some form of paella or pelau?? Either way, its one of my favorite “dump everything in one skillet and add rice” meals.

a quickie w/ shari : baked spicy meatballs w/ spaghetti squash

I absolutely love these meatballs. Actually, I love meatballs period. I remember having friends over one night in high school and not knowing what we wanted to eat, so I whipped up some homemade meatballs real quick. I’m sure that they weren’t as good as these though 🙂 . I kept seeing spaghetti squash all […]
