Spring Cleaning Essentials Kit

It has been a long winter here in Utah.  Spring has finally arrived, and I am hoping it is here to stay!   A few ways I like to welcome Spring into my home is by filling the house with fresh plants and flowers, as well as fresh scents!

I am so thrilled to be partnering with Mrs. Meyer’s Clean Day over the next few months! Mrs. Meyer’s Clean Day is a brand that I have loved used in my home for years and years!  I love that their products that go down the drain are biodegradable, they are made with essential oils, and plant-derived ingredients, they are made without colors, ammonia, phthalates, chlorine bleach, paragons, phosphates, and even gluten!  I especially love how beautiful their packaging is, and it can fit nicely in my home while also being BPA free and recyclable!

As Spring is almost upon us, I love to switch out my hand soaps and dish soaps with some spring fragrances to bring a little freshness into my home after a long winter.

Along with the fresh scents from Mrs. Meyer’s Clean Day, I love to add a little color and happiness to the house by adding a few beautiful fresh flowers and plants.  It is amazing how much it helps to brighten up the space!

Fresh Spring Flowers

With Spring just around the corner, it makes me want to freshen up the entire house, and of course a little Spring cleaning is also in order.  I decided to create a little Spring Cleaning Essentials Kit to give me a little motivation to get the job done, and fresh new cleaning supplies always help!

Here are the items you will need to make a DIY Spring Cleaning Kit for your home!

  • Mrs. Meyer’s Peony Hand Soap:  with aloe vera gel, olive oil, and a unique blend of essential oils, this soap not only smells good, but also helps keep my hard-working hands from drying out!
  • Mrs. Meyer’s Clean Day Lilac Dish Soap:  This Spring scented soap is rich, thick, and it makes grease disappear like nobody’s business.  I love to dilute it with water to wipe down my cupboards, clean out my sinks, and of course hand-washing my dishes and pots and pans. You only need to use just a tiny squirt or two, and you are good to go!
  • Micro Fiber Cloths:  I love to use Micro Fiber Cloths while cleaning!  They can be rinsed and re-used again, and again, then thrown in the washing machine.  I like to put a few drops of the Mrs. Meyer’s Clean Day Lilac Dish soap in a bucket of water then use the Micro Fiber Cloths to wipe down my doors, baseboards, door knobs, and light switches.  Those places that always seem to gather dust and hand prints.
  • Rubber Gloves:  I always throw in a pair of rubber gloves so that I can get deep into cleaning without my nails getting abused.
  • Sponges:  Sponges always come in handy, and are great to reuse over and over.  They come in handy when wiping out hard to clean areas like the microwave, and fridge.  I add a little Mrs. Meyer’s Clean Day Dish Soap and run the sponges under hot water.  That heat in addition to the dish soap really helps get after those areas with extra build-up.
  • Paper Towels:  I like to use paper towels for certain areas of my house, especially the bathroom.  When I’m cleaning toilets, areas with lots of germs, I’d rather throw out the mess when I’m done.
  • Duster: Dusters are always so helpful to deep Spring clean the house.  They are great for all surfaces, blinds and shutters, baseboards, and window sills!
  • All-purpose Spray:  Always good to have on hand to get surfaces cleaned!
  • Garbage Bags:  It seems garbage always piles up when you make your way around the house, so it is nice to have fresh bags ready to change out the trash bins.
  • Scrubbing Brush: For those hard to clean areas, I like to get a nice brush with bristles to get a nice deep clean.

So, tell me, what do you like to do to help bring Spring into your home?

Evereve Style Crew // Dress Like a Mom

March 16, 2017

If you follow me on social media, then you have heard about my upcoming brand ambassadorship with Evereve this year as part of their Style Crew!  Evereve is an amazing retail store that opened in 2004 geared towards high-quality fashion for stylish fashion-loving moms who need a place to go be pampered, and do some efficient shopping with amazing brands all in a one place!  They carry some of my favorite brands like AG Jeans, Sam Edelman, Dolce Vita, Free People, just to name a few.  They have over 68 plus Evereve stores nationwide, and are continuing to grow and grow!  In fact, my very own state of Utah recently got their first store a few years ago, and it has been such a treat to shop at their beautiful Station Park location in Farmington.  Their stylists know what women, and especially mom’s need!  They also have the best recommendations and help you find exactly what you are looking for.  In fact, they introduced me to my favorite style of skinny jeans, the Farrah Skinny jeans by AG Jeans a few years back, and I can’t stop telling everyone I know about them!  They really are the best!

Last month I was able to head out to their corporate headquarters in Minnesota to meet the entire Evereve Style Crew and team!  I was so touched by the founder and co-owner Megan’s story of how Evereve (formerly “Hot Mama”) was born.  We sat around a table as she told her story about being a first time mother taking her newborn out for the first time to a large major department store.  She found herself winding around all the racks, and up and down elevators, in search of something that would make her feel not only like herself again, but also beautiful again after just having a baby.  After this total first time as a mom shopping fail, the idea was born to create high end retail stores to cater towards moms!  Since mom’s are always the ones to take care of everyone else’s needs before their own, she wanted to create a place where mom’s could come, and everything in the store was curated towards their needs!   Their stylists are there to pamper, find out exactly what you need, and even help with your kids as you shop (they even have snacks and toys on hand)!

PLACE Sport: The Perfect Activewear for Kids

March 8, 2017

The Children's Place new PLACE Sport activewear line

This is sponsored advertising content from The Children’s Place. The opinions stated are my own.

This kid!  He lives, eats, and breathes sports.  All. Day. Long.  If he could wear sports gear 24/7, he totally would!   We were very excited to partner with The Children’s Place in the release of their new PLACE Sport activewear line that is now available in their stores and online!

Ezra is my total sports lover, and he was like this from day one!  I remember when he was a baby, I used to sit there all day long and pass a ball back and forth to him.  Seriously, all day long!  As he has gotten older, it has been so fun to watch him play and excel at sports.  He really loves all sports which makes it hard, since he wants to play them all!  Right now, it is still basketball season around here, so that’s his sport of choice.  You’ll find him in the driveway shooting hoops at any chance he can get!  He loves playing on his basketball team, and they have gone undefeated this season!  As a parent it is so fun to see him doing well at something that he truly loves!  He has such a passion for it, and spends so much of his time practicing, and trying to improve at his skills.

Lately, even in the freezing weather, rain, or snow, he keeps trying to sneak off to school wearing basketball shorts and short sleeved tops.  It is quite the rage among his fourth grade friends, and they all love dressing in activewear!  I was happy to see that The Children’s Place has some fun new pieces that both he and I approved of!
