No YOU do it!

I've got kid updates coming, promise, just need to find my camera cord... so until then I had an idea!

Are you as addicted to Pintrest as I am? Don't know what Pintrest is... look it up! Amazing and addicting. Here's the problem. You have a MILLION sweet ideas and tips that you save and never do... I mean it almost makes you feel like a failure. You'll be on there pinning (yes it's a verb now) and thinking "this will be sweet!"  "This will make me look awesome!" "This will make my life easier" or "I wonder if this is all it seems"... so I'm going to be your Guinea pig! YEA ME! Every week I'm going to do one thing off of Pintrest. It can be from my boards or yours. I'll do a step by step demo, etc and then review it for you. I'll include pic and/or video, depending on which applies.

So I'll start you off with a few ideas to vote on for this first week, and feel free to recommend ideas for future weeks!

World's most effective and cheapest acne spot treatment: one un-coated aspirin tablet + 4 drops of water. Mash up using your finger and apply to problem spots. Wait a few minutes and rinse off. Works wonders at reducing redness and swelling and speeding the recovery of painful zits and pimples. Can also be used on entire face as a mask to reduce pore size and prevent acne.

Who still looks like they are going through puberty? HOLLA! Always trying out new products to fix this? Let me try for you!

THIS REALLY WORKS AND LAUNDRY IS SUPER SOFT!!! Soak a hand towel in fabric softener. Squeeze out any remaining drops from the towel. Hang it over a chair (or outside on a clothes line) to dry. My house smelled super clean for the three days while this towel was drying completely. Yes, it took three days! You must make sure it dries completely! After the towel dries you just throw it in your dryer along with clothes and use it as a dryer sheet for 40-50 loads before soaking again.

Okay I get it might make your house smell great, but a dryer sheet? REALLY??

no sew refitting big tshirts

As I lose weight I'm slowly starting to look like a bag lady or potential shop lifter since my shirts (and pants) are looking quite huge on me... think this could work AND look good on someone who isn't a size 2?

1. Buy cheap plates 2. Write things with a Sharpie 3. Bake for 30 mins in the 150 oven and it's permanent! Awesome idea!

This could open the possibilities of great Christmas gift ideas if it really works!!


I love this idea, I might try to class it up some with maybe just a B or the full name... but could be a ANOTHER great Christmas gift idea!

So let me know which would interest you, 1, 2, 3, 4, or 5. AND leave me a comment or link if there's something you want me to consider for next week. Voting will end on Wednesday the 27th, on which I will then put up new items for you to vote on. I will do the project that week and I will write up a review of how it went on Tuesday. So every Tuesday you'll get a pinterest review and every Wednesday you can begin voting on a new one!

***ALSO, I will do household things, kid activities, cooking, etc. Whatever y'all prefer. I will have to think about my budget (unless I get a super cool/awesome/loaded sponsor), but I'm very open to anything!

  1. I like the plate one! You could write something special on it and only use the plate for special occasions.
