How to Support Australia?

I know personally for me the people, firefighters, and animals in Australia have been in my thoughts lately.  I always wonder how to support these causes and those in need.  A page I follow on social media always comes through for those in need, The Shop Forward.  Give them a follow on Instagram and check out their line of Australia items for a way to support those in need.  Happy Helping!


Removing the Lid Off a Spice Jar - Without Breaking Your Fingernails!

Removing the plastic lids off spice and seasoning jars has always equaled a fingernail ending experience for me.  Until I thought about the process and how I can make it easier on myself.  I don't do it all that often but sometimes you need to a teaspoon of spice and don't want to sit there for half a day tapping spices out of a jar.  That is where my church key or manual can opener comes into play and save my fingernails.  As you can see in the video below either process works for taking the plastic shaker piece off a spice jar.

This also lead me to research where the term church-key comes from originally.  In my reading, it appears to be an older term that references the old glass bottle openers used in breweries that resembled an actual church-key.  In the 1930s when a device with a triangle on the end to punch a hole in flat top beer cans was developed, the term church-key was more widely adopted.  Happy learning!

While I make a small percentage off sales used through my code, these are items I have used and trust.  I use them in my home or everyday life, and no amount of commission is worth compromising your trust.  Happy shopping!


Flat Iron Storage in a Tiny Space!


I live in a tiny house, which is perfect for me and less to clean, but when it comes to storage there is a lack of storage space, everywhere.  I don't use my flat iron every day but often enough and like to have it out and available instead of hidden away in the dark confines under my bathroom sink, where items tend to disappear with the dust bunnies.
My solution for this was storage on the back of my toilet tank, or you can hang this flat iron/curling iron holder off your vanity top as well.  I haven't had any issues with it falling off in over a year that I have been using it.
Do you have tween/teenage girls, a great solution for their bathroom clutter!  I found this very helpful in my tiny bathroom and thought you might too! Happy organizing!

New Year, New Balance

Do you set New Year's resolutions, I don't, I tend to just set a goal or goals and try to live a more balanced life each year.  Balance is one of my goals in 2020.  I met some big goals in 2019, walked a marathon and started this blog.  There were also some downtimes in 2019, peaks and valleys that is what life is about right? I am working hard on not comparing the years and just working on being myself.

If you set a New Year's resolution I hope you accomplish it and set many more!

My goals for 2020 are to keep this blog going, it has been a great learning experience so far and I hope to keep learning along the way.  I want to pick up a book more often instead of turning to a Netflix binge.  Look to travel more in this state and outside of it, there is so much left to explore.  Finally, I would like to work on volunteering in my community more and be open to new events.

I hope 2020 brings you the adventures you are looking for you! I hope you keep learning and exploring, take the risk and enjoy the process.  Like making Yorkshire pudding aka popovers which I did for Christmas, a new process and some learning along the way!  Happy New Year folks!
