Party Pretty with Patriotic Nail Art

Did you know tomorrow, June 14th, is Flag Day? To get into the spirit we turned to our friends over at Julep. Sometimes we want to party pretty without looking like a walking American flag. So we dress in a solid, usually   reds, whites or blues and then add some patriotic nail art to make a classic Americana look pop.  We are loving Julep's fun patriotic nail art inspiration that is perfect for both Flag Day and the 4th of July and for that matter any other patriotic holiday! Take a look at these pictures for ideas on how to pretty your nails for the upcoming holidays. What is even better is that Julep is offering a free Star Spangled 8-piece gift when you join Julep Beauty Box. This includes four patriotic polishes, a hot pink lip gloss, a peony pink blush stick, a bronze eyeliner, and white chevron nail decals. A $122 value FOR FREE! Use the promo code FIREWORKS from now until July 5th!  Continue Reading →

Budget Friendly Guest Bedroom Makeover

Budget Friendly Guest Bedroom Makeover

Summer is finally here and with it comes a barrage of house guests and constant entertaining. We love it but it does take a bit of effort, preparation, and a reasonable budget. In fact, we are always surprised at how much it actually costs to host friends and relatives. In addition to the basics, such as stocking the fridge with fresh vegetables and produce, most summers, just before our guests begin to arrive we inevitably seem to find ourselves in desperate need of fresh towels or sheets or even a shower curtain. And of course, we are always searching for that little something special that will freshen the guest room up and help transform it from fine to fabulous.

With summer break already started, or quickly approaching, it is time to re-institute weekly family game night. Yes, summer is our favorite time of year partially because we love game nights! In fact, just yesterday we rolled up the ping pong table and began going through the game closet to see what games are still in good shape,  what games need to be replaced, and started thinking about what new games would be great additions to our current collection. And then this morning we opened our inbox to zazzle's Sunday Steal >>50% OFF game night essentials including dart boards, playing cards, poker chips, and even coasters with code ZSUNSTEAL134.
