3 Tips For Instant Bathroom Updates On A Small Budget!
  1. Change out your bathroom towels! Maybe you just want to change up the look in your bathroom.  Every 3 to 6 months change out your hand towels or towels that you display.  Mix and match the hand towels to coordinate to give it a more upscale look.  For example, maybe a stripe and floral pattern together with similar colors.  It will give you a new look and also allow you to change accent colors.  You can interchange with your old set when you get bored.  It gives it a nice little change without spending a ton of money.
  2. Change Your Faucets! Update your vanity faucet.  By simply adding a new faucet you can change and update the whole look of your vanity for minimal money.
  3. Add Some Tile! This will be a little bit more of an expense.  However, you could try tackling it yourself!  Just by adding tile around your vanity, shower, or tub, you can create a custom look and increase value and eye appeal to your bathroom.

Happy Makeovers!

Rejection Therapy

Do You Avoid Rejection???

Do you go out of your way to avoid rejection at the workplace? I know I am not a big fan of it myself.  But what if we looked at rejection as a life lesson or as the beeping sound on our GPS that signals our next turn.  After reading this article, I found this author's perspective amazing and endearing.  The hard truth is what we need sometimes to hear in order to improve or perhaps realize we need to go down a different path. The next time someone critiques a writing, a project, or something you've put forth, take a step back and see if it is valid.  Take time to absorb it.  If after some thought you find validity in their point, learn and grow from it.  If you feel it is not valid, maybe it is a sign to go a different direction towards something even bigger!

Secrets to Toddler Discipline

How to Redirect Your Toddler...

With Twins, I am embarking on new territory every day.  Now that the girls are more mobile and playful their differences are becoming more apparent.   Bella is definitely more rough and rules the roost.  She decides who gets what toy.  Ava is more calm and submissive, much like my oldest.  So, what do I do?  Do I intervene or let them work it out themselves? They are 1, is that too young to step in?  So I did some research and found an interesting article. It looks like I have a lot of redirecting in my future! :0) To Read the Article

Sharing my process on starting a business blog!

My Blogging Journey Continued...

I have now just started exploring the world of hubpages. From what I have seen it is quite impressive, well organized and straightforward. All the information is easy to find. They work with affiliates I am already connected to such as Amazon and Google Adsense. I made my first hub, yeah me! I know it is corny, but I find it very empowering to be in control of my own destiny. The effort I put in is for me and my future goals not somebody else! I look forward to continuing my journey and discovering new things! Feel free to share tips and your own experiences in your journey.
