Most of us love a beautiful home. There is nothing like going to Home Goods or Pier One and seeing all the fabulous home decor items. I can spend hours in those stores. I often get feedback from my viewers that they love my decor, but that they have little children and it would just not be a fit for their home. I can understand how looking initially at my home you would think it would not be a place for children. A dead give-a-way is the mirrored furniture. If you look a little deeper (beyond the mirrored furniture) you will see that actually my home is kid friendly. In the video below I share with you tips on how you can have that "adult" look in your home with the security of being kid friendly. I hope you will enjoy.
Tax season is here! Time to pull out all those receipts that you have been storing all year. Receipts can be so challenging to keep in order (as in most paper clutter). Finding a system that is very efficient and neat is so important for me. The current system I have been using worked very well, but.........I HAD TO KEEP PAPER! So this year I wanted to find a paperless system that would be easy, efficient and affordable. In the video below I share with you both my old system for organizing my receipts along with my new system. I hope you find it helpful.
There is nothing worse than a messy purse. I use a simple organizational system to keep my purse in order. Recently one of my viewers asked if I would share the current purse that I was carrying for the winter season. I was more than happy to share these tips. I hope you enjoy the video and find it helpful.
There is something so beautiful about bringing rustic aspects to your home decor. It brings a certain warmth that is really on trend these days. My brother and sister-in-law just built their new home. For their dining room they wanted a customized farmhouse table. One thing that they were sure of was that they wanted my husband to build the table. Well as always, my husband came to the rescue and created a beautiful table just in time for Christmas. My sister-in-law gave us a great blog called tommyandellie.com. On this blog this couple had built a farmhouse table and provided such great details in case you want to build one yourself. If you are interested in seeing how to make one of these tables yourself click HERE. You can also see the table my husband built in the video below. Hope you will enjoy!
Merry Christmas! Many of you may remember the video that I did sharing how I put together the baby shower for my sweet little niece Savannah. Well she is here now and is already two months old! It is amazing how fast time flies. Well my brother and sister-in-law just recently moved into their beautiful new home. I was so excited that they asked me to decorate little Savannah's room. In the video below I share with you how I put together this budget friendly nursery. Hope you will enjoy!
Well I have been deep into the holiday season. It just seems as if it is just going by so fast. I cannot believe Christmas is next week! I have been doing a combination of things this holiday season. I have been working on a decorating project that I will be sharing with you after the holidays. I also have been having so much fun making videos sharing various holiday tips. You can watch the entire playlist HERE. I have also been enjoying shopping and preparing all of the holiday gifts and festive treats. Of course one of my favorites is enjoying a nice glass of egg nog while watching all the wonderful lifetime Christmas movies. So I wanted to share with you a quick wrap- up on some things going on around the Boyd's household this holiday season:).
All my Christmas shopping is complete! I am now enjoying the process of wrapping and embellishing all the gifts I was blessed to be able to purchase for loved ones this year. In the video below, I share with you my process of wrapping gifts along with hosting a wonderful give-a-way which is sponsored by Lexol.
I feel as if I am truly blessed. I want to also be a blessing to others. For this reason, I think that it is so important to always try and find ways to pay it forward. The holiday season is a huge time for giving. I really want to be that individual that not only gives during the holidays, but gives everyday in some kind of way. This week I was able to put together a gift that I passed along in hopes that it would be a blessing to many in need in my community. In the video below you will see what I put together and how I paid it forward. I hope you will enjoy and be inspired to do the same.
My husband and I are really enjoying our new Keurig 2.0. We just received this recently in the mail from my mother-in-law. This was her Christmas gift to us this year. She knows us oh so well! I had recently received a request from one of my viewers (Kathlyn) requesting that I share my thoughts on the Keurig machine. She is currently in the process of wanting to buy a Keurig and wanted my thoughts on the product. Since I just received the new Keurig (which is a huge upgrade from my very basic model) I wanted to share my thoughts and comparison of the brand. The video below shares my findings. I hope you find it informative and helpful.
I think that we all crave great new stocking stuffer suggestions/ideas. I was so happy to be able to share with you this week what I feel would make great stocking stuffer ideas this holiday season. In the video below I share with you my ideas and where you can get the items. Hope you like!
I have so much fun making my holiday appetizers. I have my certain "Go To" appetizers which are always a crowd pleaser. I was happy to share with you how to prepare two of them for this holiday season in the video below. I first show you how I make my edible strawberry tree. I then also share my super easy ham wraps recipe. Let me know if you give them a try! Enjoy.
Are you finished holiday shopping? If you are anything like me, you are still in the process of getting those Christmas gifts in order. This year I want to share some very unique and wonderful gift ideas. Each day for the past week I have been sharing a variety of gifts for both a woman and a man.

The pulse is such a "out-of-the-box" gift to give this holiday season. This innovative product allows you to easily play music throughout your home minus the fuss of big speakers. The Pulse is a LED wireless speaker and light bulb. By simply installing the pulse into your light fixture you can play your music throughout your home beautifully. See my test run of this product in the video below.
I have really become a fan of Adoreme.com! They have the most beautiful line of sleepwear. Recently they sent me a few of their pieces to try out. I have to admit, I had never heard of this company before, but I am sure glad that they made it my way! Their pj's are so comfy (this is one picky gal when it comes to sleepwear). In the video below I try on the pieces they sent me and give you a overview of their products. What a wonderful holiday gift this would be!
The Corkcicle is just one of those must give gifts this holiday season. If you want to give that gift that can be not only useful year round, but extremely unique then stock up on these babies! I had so much fun using this product. Corkcicle was so kind that they sent me their Corkcicle One to try out. The also are sponsoring a give-a-way for one of my subscribers to win a Corkcicle Air. You have to watch the video to enter the give-a-way! Hope you will enjoy.

These are a must have in every home. In the video below I show you these fabulous gems.

I love having the opportunity to help others with their issues around their home. This week I was able to help Belinda from California with tips on how to makeover her bedroom. She has been struggling with decorating and organizing her new home. She wrote me and asked for my suggestions for her bedroom. In the video below I share with Belinda my thoughts and tips on how I think she should address this space. I hope many of you can also find my tips helpful. Enjoy!
