5 Stunning Wood Design Ideas For Small Homes

The use of wood for small homes has always been a great option for homeowners. Wood provides a natural aesthetic feel especially in homes.

I’ve always been drawn to wood and I think its entirely due to my grandparents’ being wood workers.

To this day the smell of stain brings me right back to being with my grandma. Read the rest of the post »

The key to my energy levels and to beating the afternoon sluggies for me was determining the foods that were causing it. Vitamins, water, food choices.

The key to my energy levels and to beating the afternoon sluggies for me was determining the foods that were causing it. Foggy headiness, weariness, feeling like I got hit by bus, was majorly attributed to what I was eating. I’ve had a sensitive stomach ALL of my life. When I was kid eating a piece of cheese would put me down for the count. I’m still not big on dairy and find more and more as an adult that I’m really GLAD for that. Except for a little cheese from time to time I don’t have any dairy in my diet at all. Read the rest of the post »

4 Household Appliances That Can Grow Mold and How to Clean them!

When you think of mold in the home, your mind probably goes straight to the bathroom or the basement. Those are definitely the places where it's most visible, but it's also growing in all sorts of hidden nooks and crannies — including the inside of your appliances.

Of course I purchased myself the reusable K-cups (check them out here) because there was something like 4 BILLION cups that ended up in land fills last year! I also had to take a part and clean out my dishwasher not too long ago and I absolutely could not believe the nasty mold that was growing in it – definitely something to take care of again in the future!

How Updating Your Home Affects Home Insurance Rates

Find out which improvements will cost you more, and which will save you money. Home improvement projects usually increase the value of your home. With this increase of value, it can have an effect on your homeowner’s insurance policy.

Hey guys! Today we’re talking about home insurance. I went through a local agent in town and he came out and had a look at the house, I was just about done with the renovation at that point but he had a couple of things I HAD to complete. One was permanent steps on the front entrance – here’s what’s funny about that though, my “front” entrance is actually my back door that leads into my dog kennel complete with doggie door lol it was considered my “front” door because it faces the road – but it is things like that that agents have to follow and you have to do to get a home insurance plan. After renovations you definitely want to call your agent and have them come out and reassess what you did!
