As some people know, I am in love with the tiny house movement and have been considering building my own. In doing so I have also been looking at awesome storage options to help keep things neat and tidy. My parents kitchen is also over 20 years old and in need of an update, so looking at kitchen stuff that is multipurpose, saves space, looks great and is functional has been something I have been doing. If you look at my YouTube you will see I have liked about a zillion organizing and tiny house videos recently. So, I was excited to stumble across this website, ovisonline.com

I had never heard of OVIS and when I clicked that link and saw the Kitchenaid Mixer on a pull out counter/shelf and baskets in drawers I was immediately in awe!!! I am so excited to start pinning ideas from this site and more importantly, excited for when I do get to do some reno’s (big or small) because there are definitely some amazing ideas that this company has come up with that I would absolutely LOVE to implement into my home!

If you are doing a kitchen renovation or are looking for more space leave me a comment and let me know if this site has given you any ideas!!!

Lemon + Sage My Current Favorite Scent!

Last winter I started to use the Bliss Spa body butter on my dry chapped skin. It is the FIRST lotion I have ever been able to use with success! Throughout the summer I actually used the body butter as a shaving lotion, and didn’t have any irritation from the razor on my extremely sensitive skin!

Pro’s:

  • Smells amazing -I have used White Pepper + Blood Orange as well as Lemon + Sage and they both smell like fresh cut fruit, I have been tempted to taste it!
  • Non-greasy. Yeah I know, all lotions make this claim, but this one actually follows through. It actually goes on and is dry immediately, which works great for me because I live in Canada and do NOT appreciate having moist skin in the chilled air! This is a body butter I use regularly on my entire body, on my hands after dishes and even on my face and lips when they are extra dry with no irritation or breakouts!
  • A little goes a long way
  • You can use a lot but still not feel greasy if you accidentally squeeze out too much
  • It comes out thick and melts in with a few quick rubs
  • The scent lingers, but not for too long and is not overwhelming -simply smells clean and doesn’t compete with perfume or other fragrances
  • Works as a shaving lotion – I use this on my legs and underarms before I shave and have no irritation, regular shaving creams or gels cause irritated and burning red bumps
  • Comes in several sizes and is great for the whole family
  • Companion products like shower gel and body wash in the same scents

Con’s:

  • It’s a bit pricey when you need a new one, but it definitely lasts long enough to make it worth the price (they do offer coupon codes and deals on sets if you sign up for their email)

I absolutely love Bliss body butter and it gets 5 bright shiny stars. I have some on my bedside table as well as in the bathroom and as the weather cools down one will be placed in my purse! It is awesome to not have to keep looking for that holy grail of lotions anymore and even more awesome to have skin that isn’t chapped and painful!

I have been looking to finish the basement living room, it needs paint and some lighting, okay a lot of lighting, as it doesn’t have any natural light. I have hopped over to the home and patio décor center website and have been looking at photos looking for inspiration.

The Home and Patio Decor Center has everything from bedroom furniture to outdoor lighting and patio umbrella’s. They also have indoor and outdoor fireplaces. I am feeling so excited to get this basement project of mine finished and this site has everything I could possibly need and more to get a bright, yet classic look that will make the room inviting.

Another thing that excites me is the storage options that they offer. Since the basement is unfinished there is NO CLOSET SPACE at all which isn’t the best. I struggle to keep things looking clean and put away when there is no where for storage so anything that is beautiful and acts as storage is a definite plus!

Check out this website, you definitely will not be disappointed and you will likely find some fun stuff that speaks to your personal style.

Whether your style is American Farmhouse or ultra modern I am 100% certain that this amazing site has everything you could possibly want and more!!

With school season coming to a close for most people now is the time to purchase an instrument for your child so they can keep up with their favorite artform and get better throughout the summer months. You won’t regret purchasing from Yamaha. Known for years for their high quality and long lasting performance Yamaha is a household name and a no brainer. I definitely suggest hopping over to yamaha yas-475 review to read more about their Sax and other instruments so come September when school is back in session, your child is ahead of the class!!

Summary

When literature student Anastasia Steele goes to interview young entrepreneur Christian Grey, she encounters a man who is beautiful, brilliant, and intimidating. The unworldly, innocent Ana is startled to realize she wants this man and, despite his enigmatic reserve, finds she is desperate to get close to him. Unable to resist Ana’s quiet beauty, wit, and independent spirit, Grey admits he wants her, too—but on his own terms.

Shocked yet thrilled by Grey’s singular erotic tastes, Ana hesitates. For all the trappings of success—his multinational businesses, his vast wealth, his loving family—Grey is a man tormented by demons and consumed by the need to control. When the couple embarks on a daring, passionately physical affair, Ana discovers Christian Grey’s secrets and explores her own dark desires.

Erotic, amusing, and deeply moving, the Fifty Shades Trilogy is a tale that will obsess you, possess you, and stay with you forever.

My Review

Fifty Shades of Grey
First, I NEVER planned to jump on the Fifty Shades bandwagon -ever. BUT, after seeing soooo much hate for it and the movie on social media, especially with people saying it was nothing but “rape” etc my interest was peaked. Afterall, why would this be THE BEST SELLER and talked about on every platform if it was nothing more than a rape story? Women wouldn’t be all over that! So, after seeing a post last week saying that if Christian Grey wasn’t a billionaire this would be an episode of Criminal Minds, I decided to jump in with both feet and see what it was all about. First, I watched the movie, everything is consentual, safe and follows the standard BDSM ‘rules’. I loved the movie so I bought the trilogy for kindle and the first book was sort of blah, the author, E.L. James was on the right track but the book struggled to come alive for me, perhaps because I had already seen the movie, which I must say was really well done WHILE following the book very closely -which is rare in books made into movies. Now I am reading Fifty Shades Darker and E.L. James seems to really be in the groove of things as the story is engaging, erotic and best of all relatable.
