Zep it clean for the holidays

It's that time of time of the year again, everyone is trying to get things in order for the holiday season. The first thing on your list is to clean, clean, and more cleaning. I was lucky enough to be offered a chance to try Zep cleaning products through Crowd Tap. I will have to say with a house full of kids and pets I'm always on the lookout for products that I trust that are not harmful and get the job done. I'm pleased to say that Zep cleaning products are at the top of my list this year!

DIY: Reading Nook

Every girl wants a special place to call their own. A place that they can go to and relax and be themselves. My daughter does all of the above in reading books. She has told me over and over how she really feels like she is apart of the books that she reads. So that gave me the idea that she needed a special place that she could really become one with her books. One day I was browsing through Pinterest and I came across this pin Pinterest Reading Nook it was so simple I had to make it hers!!
Things you need:

1. Curved bathroom shower curtain rod
2. Curtains of your choice
3. A corner in your room.
4. Any accents you may want ( I used Monster High High Voltage String Light. She just happen to get those for her bday).  A few pillows, a soft rug and ribbons for ties.

It's simple just follow the directions for installing the shower rod, then add your curtain and accents.

Coppertone Review



I use sunscreen no matter what the weather or temperature as long as the sun is out.  Even while drawing with chalk in the driveway there are chances for sunburn. So even while she is playing I'm able to fix her up and get her set. As a BuzzAgent I was offered to try out the  COPPERTONE® CLEARLYSheersunscreens. It's easy as 1. Unlock the lid 2. Point and spray 3. Continue to play. I do reapply after 80 minutes just to be safe. I have always been a fan of coppertone and will continue too since they offer such fantastic products! 


I can remember the days that sunscreen went on heavy and wouldn't run in. You walked around looking if you had played in white finger paint or rolled around in flour and gotten wet. Well the time has changed and so have products. Coppertone sunscreen continuous spray goes on easy with even coverage and is water resistant.
Better yet it goes on clear! It's very easy to use and no hassle, and worry free!
