My sister brought me a Rosemary and Mint candle this week and it smells LOVELY. Sometimes the aroma doesn’t always live up to the name with some candles, but this one definitely does.

I used this homemade taco seasoning recipe to make this yummy and easy crock pot chicken.

Cute striped dress!

I love all of these light fixtures!

Anthro members get 20% off full price items today so it’s a GREAT time to pick up my absolute favorite jeans!

MAC is coming to Ulta stores this spring/summer! Their lipsticks are awesome and I used their powder foundation for years and years.

Going on a spring break trip? Here are 10 cover ups! And a great pair of sandals, a summer staple.

This looks pretty yummy, especially on a warm day!

If you are craving summer but it’s still cold where you live, get some house plants! Have cats? Here are some safe ones!

A low halo braid.

A cute pink bomber jacket.

Have a great weekend! We’ll be cleaning the ceiling of our porch that somehow became covered in mildew. We’ve never experienced this before and don’t know why it happened. Is it something about having a pool nearby? Too much moisture in the air? If you’ve had any experience with this, tips would be appreciated!

    I use my crock pot all the time now, since I found the slow cooker liners.
    They cut down on clean up and I love them!!! LOL

    We have as screened in porch that needs to be cleaned from top to bottom each spring with a mild bleach solution. It’s the humidity. Ugh. It’s a bear of a job. Don’t expend too much energy, as you’ll need to deep clean after the pine pollen. North Carolina’s gift. Ps-we Are in North Raleigh.

    I’m so excited about MAC coming to Ulta! While I love MAC, I rarely pick things up from then because I find it a pain to go to a department store to get makeup.

    The packaging on the candle is ADORABLE. I want to buy it just because it’s pretty 🙂 does your sister make it herself?

    Regarding your mold issue, we had a new roof put on our house early last summer and then developed mold for the first time under our soffits when the weather turned humid. Turns out that the roofer over vented our house when we went from mushroom cap vents to a ridge vent. The increased air flow resulted in moisture and then mold. Since you mentioned the mold was new and then the roof was relatively new – our situation came to mind. Mold is scary around kids so hopefully you can resolve your issue – Good luck!
