It is apparent I love to shop and I LOVE a good deal so I am sharing with you all some of my favorite outfits that I bought in the month of March. See something you like? My sizes are detailed by each photo and the images are at the bottom where you can shop these looks!
How cute is this black jumpsuit? romper? Call it what you want- but everyone needs this in their life. (Wearing a size small)
Lululemon dupe joggers, Yes please! (Wearing a size small) I probably could go down one size if I wanted them tighter.
I love my “MIDWST” tee from my shop MidwestStandard.com all tees are unisex and I am wearing a size small!
Matching pajamas are my go to lately. I want to donate a-lot of my tees I have right now and pants that don’t match. This set is cozy and very well priced. (wearing a size small)
This sweater is lightweight and perfect for transitioning into Spring! (wearing a size small)
OBSESSED with this jumpsuit! Is it not perfect for SPRING? (wearing a size small)
If you don’t know now you know leopard is not going anywhere on my platform. I am swooning over all the pieced I own now! (wearing a size small)
For a while now I have been wanting to make our house a home. To make it complete on I have always pictured the front exterior a certain way. I have envisioned making DIY shutters for our home ever since we moved in two years ago.
I have been doing my research on these DIY shutters for a while now- almost discouraged because it seemed like a big task. It was actually a breeze and with some help from the kind people at Home Depot, Andrew, and my dad we completed the task!
Andrew and I call Home Depot our second home because we are ALWAYS there- and to be honest I can’t say one bad thing about Home Depot they are always so helpful. Our favorite thing is that they are dog-friendly, Luther LOVES the workers there.
Let’s get to it!
What you will need:
Large width brush
Galvanized screws (brown- depending on the color of stain)
Step 1: Measure your windows from top to bottom.
We prefer the wood to be flush- from top to bottom, but some people leave some room on the top and bottom of the windows when measuring. The average width is about 12 inches we went actually 15 inches due to the style I was trying to pull off.
Step 2: Pick out your wood.
We chose to go with Cedarwood- it is durable and already treated. After talking with multiple workers their they suggested the cedar over the pine due to it being best for the exterior. * Note if you do get a wood that is not treated you will need to treat it properly so it can stand weather conditions.
Step 3: Cut your wood- or have Home Depot cut it (that is what we did)
Step3: Stain Wood
Picking out stain was so stressful for me (big commitment) ha! We picked out a stain that complemented the exterior of our house color. We chose a brighter stain to make the wood pop. (Let stain sit and apply as needed to get to ideal color).
Step 4: Assemble Wood (After Stain Sits)
Line up 3 boards width and two across the top and bottom. This is where you use the nail gun. (As you will see I used the width of the boards to space out the wood to the desired width.)
Step 5: Nail to the House (You will need the galvanized screws and Drill and ladder)
* We chose the brown galvanized screws so they would blend with the wood and the great thing about getting galvanized screws is that they will not rust and run down on the wood making it look rusty.
Who knew brushing your teeth could be so much fun? Especially when you have matching ones from Quip! Did you know most people don’t take care of their teeth properly? You either brush too hard, unevenly, not long enough or don’t brush often enough!
I actually think my dental hygiene got better after dating Andrew no lie. He is ALWAYS brushing his teeth so I had to step up my game LOL.
Quip has different options on the color choice which I really like, I can’t tell you how many times I have forgotten which toothbrush was mine because we had the same colors… I chose the copper metal and Andrew chose the slate metal color. One thing I really like is the nifty dual-use cover that comes with them (not the plastic tube the base that it is in) which makes traveling with your electric toothbrush easier.
Did you know that you should brush your teeth for 2 minutes at a time? The Quip has sensitive vibrations that use a built-in timer to pulse every 30 seconds and turn off after 2 minutes, helping guide a full and even clean.
How cool, you can mount the case to your mirror at home using a micro-suction strip! The subscription actually delivers new tubes of toothpaste as well when you run out.
Quip has made our life easier instead of running to the store every so often to go pick up new toothbrushes we get new brush heads delivered right to our door!
Dentist recommends that you change your bristles after 3 months because bristles become worn out and ineffective at cleaning. Why not pay $5 with free shipping for your bristles to be automatically refreshed.
