Unexpected Items for Organizing

Hello guys!  It's been a very long time since I have posted here in my little blog but life outside of blog was way too awesome to let it pass by.  

Although I have to admit, I soo miss blogging and my awesome readers.

Organizing is just something that is in me and when it comes to that, some unexpected items become useful.  

Let me feature some of my organizing projects that came from unexpected items.

Underwear Organizer
I was so skeptical when I first posted this project about three years ago because it was way too personal to show all over the web.

But ironically, this project has brought so much audience for my blog.  This is my most visited post, my most featured post and my most pinned post.

If you search "diy underwear organizer" on Pinterest, you will see this project among others.  But you will see this as the most pinned:

Here's one with 1,278 pins, 223 loves.
Here's another one with 725 pins and 138 loves.
Cooling Rack Earring Holder
If you are following me on my facebook page, I was so thrilled to find out that this project got featured in Good Housekeeping with their article on "14 Dollar Store Buys That Can Organize Your Entire Home".
If you are not yet following me on any of my social media, I would love for you to do that.

My Fab Shoe Storage
This shoe shoe storage is still going stronger and still in awesome shape in our closet.  To think that this project was made for more than 2 years ago.

I used bathroom rack, foam board, electrical tape and more!  Click on the photo to find out how I did this.

Organizing Party Supplies
I used some plastic shoe boxes to organize these.  After more than two years, this storage is still in use.  


Fabric-Covered Crate for Storage
Really this storage is holding up good, I made two more of these and guess what, they're still in use up to this date.

Organized Pans with Shower Hooks
That is it for now and I will definitely have a follow up post on this one.

What about you?  What unexpected item have you used for organizing, I would really love to hear it and hopefully make use of it.

Until then...

A Matching Mom and Daughter Braided Hair

One of the favorite things that my little girl and I like to do is to have a matching hairstyles. 

About a couple of weeks ago, I braided her hair first and braided mine.
My daughter really like it when she saw the photos after I snap it.  

The good thing about braiding her hair is that she is so patient and she just stay still while I was pulling her hair together.  

She's growing so fast and maybe one day she will not let me do this with her hair anymore or maybe she will not like the idea of us having a matching hairstyles.  But I am totally hoping that she'd still be cool with this idea and we stay as close as we are now ♥
Until then..

Review and Raffle Giveaway | Green Valley Fraser-Fir Christmas Wreath

It's raffle time again!! (Raffle is open to US addresses only)

Have you heard about Green Valley Christmas Trees?  The are the leading retailer of premium, farm grown Christmas trees.   Yes, they're fresh from the farm and whey they approached me if I wanted to do a review and run a raffle for their Fraser-Fir Wreath, I immediately said yes to it!
Visit their website here and don't forget to join the raffle giveaway down at the bottom of this post.

They sent me a 20" Plain Fraser-Fir Christmas Wreath.  It arrived in a large box, very well wrapped, when I opened it, it smelled so good and holiday-like smell.  
I am very happy because they are truly true to their product description.


Description from their website:

18-20 Inch Fraser Fir Wreath
The 18 - 20 Inch Fraser Fir Christmas wreath uses one of the most popular trees in North America for its foliage and is often seen adorning the area above the fireplace, doors and windows. Filling your home with the aroma of the season, its fresh, fir scent is one of its most favored features. The colors of the needles diverge, from light green at its very tip to a darker green at the branch are accented with silver-white bands on the underside, giving this Christmas wreath sumptuous texture and depth.

This Christmas wreath with its natural, vivacious colors and plush, thick foliage will endure the whole season as they decorate your home or office.

Superior needle retention and heady holiday aroma are what best separates Fraser Fir Christmas wreaths from other types. The foliage for your wreath will be gathered, created and shipped all in the same day to allow you utmost enjoyment of its freshness and fragrance possible throughout the whole Christmas season.

 I hang it in my entryway and it immediately filled the space with a very sweet holiday fragrance.

I also love how the branches are accented with silver-white bands on the underside.

Since it was just plain and the foliage is very thick, I decided to spruce it up by adding some snowflakes ornaments.
With little to no effort, the wreath was filled with snowflakes ornaments.
The white snowflakes definitely accentuated the silver-white bands on the branches.

With that, our entryway is now just ready for Christmas, it is also smelling Christmas.
I am truly thrilled to be able to review this product and experience to have it my home.

Thank you very much Green Valley Christmas Trees for collaborating with me and for trusting me and my little blog.  I hope to work with you more in the future!

Don't forget to visit their website here and don't forget to join the raffle giveaway down at the bottom of this post.

Disclosure: I received the above mentioned Green Valley Christmas Trees product to try in order for me to facilitate the review.  However, everything that this post contains are my own genuine experience/opinion.

Who wants a free shirt, hat and stickers from Great Lakes Proud?

Yeah, today we're giving all that - you heard me right, ALL of that!! ♥

Not too long ago, Great Lakes Proud contacted me to do a review and run a raffle for them.  Of course, I said YES! 

I requested for their Great Lakes Proud Original Soft Tee, because of my curiosity as to how soft this shirt really is.  Then the pink hat for me but my daughter wanted to model it.

When the package arrived, we were so thrilled to open it!  Eventhough the hat is for me or my size - there is an option at the back of it, to adjust it to fit the head of the person wearing it.

Since my daughter insisted on modeling it, I was not disappointed at all because she totally rock it!!!   

She even involved her unicorn in the photo shoot to match the pink hat.
Now on to the Great Lakes Proud Original Soft Tee.  I mean...you have to believe me - it is the softest shirt I have ever touched!  

They were not kidding at all ♥  The Mr. totally love the shirt and he also agreed with me on how soft it is.
Overall, we are so impressed with their products and I totally recommend it.  If you are looking for some gift ideas, this is definitely a contender.
