Granite Cleaner

This is by far my favorite homemade cleaner for my granite counters. I use this every day in my kitchen and bathrooms.  Granite, marble or stone surfaces do NOT do well with acidic (citrus-based) cleaners. The vinegar or citrus can actually cause what looks like “etching” on them.
Windex is another no go, it will quickly strip the “seal” off of your granite/stone. You are now left with two options, expensive over the counter products or make your own. When I make this I double the batch. I found my counters dried beautifully without any streaks, my counters were so shiny that you could see the reflection of items on my counter.

TA DA!!!
Look at that shine!!! I love this homemade cleaner so much nothing makes me happier then clean shiny counters :) Plus it is a very budget friendly cleaner to make. Give it a try and tell me what you think :)

Renu 28 My New Best Friend

OH MY GOODNESS!! Have you got to try this?? YES! I can not even tell you how AMAZING this product is. They just launched RENU 28 in May this year. It is VERY affordable, only $35.00 a tube!! Your skin will renew itself in ways that you've never been able to see before. Look at all of these before and after photos that have happened all in 28 days OR LESS.

I first tried this product on June 9th 2014 for my stretch marks and C-section scar from my last baby. It is incredible!! Imagine what your skin could look like after 28 days with RENU 28. How does it work you ask?? RENU 28 is a concentrated, topical gel that provides a whole-body skin therapy to revitalize your skin's health and appearance. The unique Redox Signaling Technology behind RENU 28 empowers communication at the cellular level which helps to rejuvenate your body's skin cells. There are ONLY 4 ingredients with NO harsh chemicals. It is safe for everyone to use on the face and body.

You have nothing to loose and everything to gain with their 30 day empty bottle guarantee! You can order some at this website   I am so convinced by this product that you more then likely will want to keep using it just like I do :)

Anyways here is my C-section scar before using the RENU 28 and only after 14 DAYS!!! I LOVE THIS PRODUCT SO MUCH it is even getting rid of my stretch marks from having kids :)

Here are a few more before and after pictures

You just shake the tube up before each use and apply 2-3x a day. Really I am not kidding when I say you will LOVE this product, go order yours right now and see for yourself how amazing it truly is. Remember they have a 30 day empty bottle money back guarantee. If you have any questions leave a comment and I will get back to you. Have a great day!

Kitchen Makeover!

Today I want to share with you my kitchen makeover. Kitchen renovations are among the most expensive home-improvement projects, but it's possible to give a tired kitchen new life without breaking the bank. At the most basic, walls can be painted and cabinet hardware changed to freshen the look. You always want to have a color scheme for your home that is not over the top. What I mean by over the top is, you don't want pink in one room, green in one and red in another. Try to stay with the same theme of colors. It is good to pick 3-4 with accent colors.

In my house my color accent is Turquoise (its my favorite color) greys, black, white and tans/browns.
For my kitchen makeover I painted the walls Cape Cobblestone in Benjamin Moore. I am in LOVE with this color because it is not too over powering but yet still warm enough with not being a "cold" grey. I feel it is a nice balanced grey. Some greys out there have a blue undertone to them that I don't like, this one was perfect for me!

I HATE clutter. Try to keep things off of your counters with the exception of a few decorations not going over board. Clean and simple is the way to be :) Notice how shiny my granite counter tops are??? I will be sharing my FAVORITE homemade granite cleaner in another post soon. :)

We framed in our kitchen window with molding which I feel made it look a lot better then in the before it was just plain Jane. (I want to do it with all the windows in my house)
I added 2 kitchen sayings in vinyl that I like, one above my stove and the other above the window. Enjoy life it's delicious and Meals & Memories are made here.

TA DA I am very happy with my kitchen where I can cook and build memories with my family :) ENJOY! I will be sharing more of my home tour soon.

Another Porch Project Complete

I have my next porch project all done! I took a picture of my kids feet and used an editing program to add the text which reads; Please Remove Your Shoes. I have seen sayings and signs made out of wood but I wanted something more than just wood and vinyl. I added it in the center of my wreath on my front door. That way everyone will see it. I just bought a cheap $2.00 black frame at Walmart and added ribbon to it. I used a command hook to hang it so I didn't have to nail anything into my nice wood door. I love command hooks for so many reasons, they work great.

New Favortie Beauty Product

I know I have posted some home recipes for lip exfoliators, I just bought this today and I LOVE IT SO MUCH!! I had to share it with you. The best part is it only costs $3.00 also, the fact that it REALLY works. So what is this new found love of mine? E.L.F. Lip Exfoliator. Just use circular motions all over your lips then wipe off with a wet cotton ball. Your lips will be soft as silk and oh so kissable for your special someone :) Anytime you have chapped lips you can carry this with you and not have to worry about whipping up a homemade mix.
