Clean your headlights with toothpaste

Ok so I know this is a bad photo but I got kind of excited trying this out and just jumped into it! So I’m not sure where I heard this from but I gave it a shot and I’m so glad I did. I put a dab of toothpaste on a paper towel and just started applying it in the top of the headlight in circular motions. Then, I got a wet paper towel and started wiping the dried toothpaste off and that is how clean it looked. I didn’t do the bottom half because I wanted you to see the difference. If you do apply the toothpaste to the whole headlight you can just pour the water directly on the entire headlight and dry it. Isn’t this a great way to clean up your headlights?!

7 up for your flowers


My boyfriend came home after being away for 3 long weeks and he of course, had a bouquet of flowers! He said he didn’t have much time so he stopped by Wal-Mart (it all counts!) and got these lovely bright flowers for me! I wanted to make sure they would last at least for the week he would be here. He bought these last Saturday 5/3 and I cut the stems shorter added some water and 7UP! Yup, that’s right 7up the drink. I added about half a cup to the water and let them bloom in all there glory. Today I walked by them and expected them to be ready to be put out but nope, look at these beauties. There alive and happy and it makes me happy just looking at them. My camera of course is not the best but you can see these are happy flowers! Try it next time you get a wonderful bouquet from your loved ones!
Happy Mother’s Day!

Stay Calm & Eat Healthy

I’ve found recently that I am eating healthier. Not because spring break is coming up or because I’m trying to drop some L. B.’s, but because the doctor advised my dad if he wanted to live longer, change your diet immediately. Let’s face it. Who hasn’t had a doctor tell our parents to change their diets. Do they listen? Hmmph! An easy fix to this problem was keeping healthy foods in the house and preparing healthy meals. We’re talking fruits straight from a tree to the sink. Same for vegetables, from the ground to being washed. Healthy meats, healthy pasta, healthier oils, even Himalayan salt. Ok well no one really had to convince me to buy that salt, I mean its PINK! Cuteness! The food doesn’t look to bad and its delicious. Well needless to say, I have seen less and less of my dad. I think he has learned if you eat here your foods gonna taste a little different than he’s used too. I’m not trying to promote a healthy diet for you, instead I’m saying if you see my dad can u tell him, HIS PLATE IS READY!

New category

I will now be posting some of the free stuff that I find so that you can also take advantage of these wonderful freebies. Last year when I started finding out I could get tons of free stuff by just knowing where to look. I ended up with a lot of loot and over 20 free subscriptions to magazines. We’re talking Us weekly, Rolling Stone, Teen Vogue, etc. I was able to get a couple wedding magazines which were great because they were just in time for my sisters wedding. Now I know lots of magazines is definitely lots of paper. I was able to donate magazines to offices and even reuse some to make baskets and crafts. Go here for some great ideas.
