A while back I found the perfect foundation. I love the color and how it stays on all day but there is one huge problem! The spatula built in to the lid doesn’t reach the sides or bottom of the bottle! The foundation formula is so thick that you can’t turn the bottle upside down to get it out. Trust me I tried like a maniac. It was a huge bummer and made me start thinking about finding a different foundation. And then a little piece of plastic fixed everything! A makeup spatula! Consider my mind blown!
Day drinking is the ultimate in relaxation. If you can sit down and enjoy a cocktail, in the middle of the day, that means your obligations have been met and you are off the clock for a little while. Unfortunately for me, day drinking also means that I want to take a nap. This sangria recipe with iced tea is the perfect way to indulge in some afternoon sipping without getting sloppy and tired.
My kids practically have to drag me out of the upholstery area of the craft store since I always want to see what their tassel selection looks like. I had this huge spool of gold sequin trim just hanging out (with everything else) in my garage and knew I wanted to make something with it. Long story short, here’s a sequin tassel DIY. I made these as flair for my balloon Valentine’s but they can be used in so many other ways!
How to prep for high school life with Degrassi: Next Class
Did you watch Degrassi when you were growing up? I totally remember watching it in my mom’s bedroom (which was more contained in case the characters were talking about something that I deemed embarrassing or a little too edgy). The show made me nervous, it was so raw and dealt with issues that seemed WAY more advanced than anything my little life had seen. Jimmy got shot for goodness sakes! Now as a parent, I see how Degrassi can actually be an amazing parenting tool. Netflix recently brought Degrassi: Next Class to the network and it’s pretty much like Cliff’s Notes (totally aged myself with that one) for teen life. Whether you choose to watch it with your kids or by yourself as sort of a primer for what high school life is truly like these days, Degrassi is here for us. Jimmy is also still here for us. We just call him Drake now.

Are you all about football or do you mainly chat with your friends? My oldest son is super in to football right now so I know it will be fun to watch with him. He knows way more players than I do and can totally help me figure out what is going on. Plus he LOVES pop music so he geeks out at the half-time show! But I could just as easily stay home and fold laundry and watch Scandal. Is that unAmerican? What are your go-to Super Bowl recipes?
