How I Staged an Autumn Theme with Oriental Trading

I love exploring yard sales, but we don't see very many near my house in such a rural area, at least not community type yard sales. I jumped at the chance to participate in a community yard sale with some of my family this weekend.

This particular community sale is setup more like a craft fair. There is a theme, and everyone decorates their yard. This year's theme was super easy, Autumn. I want to show you how I incorporated my handmade … [Read more...]

The Stain Fighting Test with Purex plus Clorox2 #PurexPlusClorox2 #SocialInsiders

I received a free sample bottle of #PurexPlusClorox2 from #SocialInsiders. I have high expectations when it comes to products that are supposed to clean the clothes we wear everyday, but at the same time I want a stain fighting detergent that is a smart value, too. Add my sensitive skin into the mix, and there are very few budget friendly detergents out there that work for me. Purex has been my go to detergent over the years because no matter what version I use I haven't had any issues with skin irritations, and the Purex detergent gets the job done. In our house, the stains are huge. … [Read more...]
