I was heavily influenced and bought the Little Green machine 🌱💚🧼 It got delivered this weekend and I couldn’t wait to go on a cleaning rampage. I started with our couch and omg - the dirty water canister!! My honest initial review: • Admittedly our couch is only 5 months old and had no major stains so the difference before vs. after was not super noticeable. I will report back after I need to spot clean something with it. I think it will be great for keeping our furniture looking fresh so my goal is to do this monthly. But overall it obviously did a good job and our couch needed more TLC than I thought based on the color of the water afterwards! Soo satisfying. • I love how amazing the couch smells now! • The couch took a couple of hours to dry so I will definitely plan for that next time. • The whole process was easy but it did take a decent amount of time. But I guess I expected that! My arm was low key kind of sore afterwards from pressing down for a good suction! Do you have the @bissellclean Little Green machine? Do you love it!? I plan to clean our outdoor cushions with this next! ✨
Traveling with a baby is intimidating and challenging but I love that we have these core memories with her now ✨ I gained so much confidence as a new mom from this experience and I feel like I can do anything now that we checked off international travel from the list 💪🏻

What better way to celebrate a friend or family’s 30th birthday than with a Dirty 30 Survival Kit for the night of/morning after. Believe me, they will thank you! I was trying to think of a special gift for my sister back in January and remembered seeing these types of “survival kits” for 21sts and bachelorette parties. I decided to make my own little rendition of one. Each “item” in the bag had a witty slogan/quote to accompany it. I hand-wrote on white card stock paper & backed it with gold glitter scrap book paper from Patcatans (craft store).
Keep Calm Chocolate On candy bar (Hallmark)- “Who needs coffee when you can have chocolate”
Mini Advil– “Poppin’ bottles last night, poppin’ Advil this morning”
Lotion (Bath&BodyWorks)- “Too hungover to shower?”
Idea #2: The second picture above is a poster board I put out at the bar we rented for my sister’s surprise 30th. I had everyone fill out decorative cards with reasons why they loved her. It served as a decoration and an even better memory for my sister. The poster board I used was fairly large but you can decide on the size. Again, I used white card stock and backed it with glittery scrapbook paper for an extra touch. I bought felt & foam sticky-backed letters (found in the scrap book section of the craft store) for the words at the top/bottom to keep it neat. The bow was made with black sparkle ribbon, polka dot ribbon, & simply glued on to the poster.
These 2 projects did take some time but if you like crafts, you’ll have fun making them!
