Thank you to those of you that entered! Random.org has selected one lucky winner… Entry #32, Nichole K! She said “Decal Me! I love all of the monograms. It would be hard to choose!” Congrats :)

Today’s giveaway comes from one of our July sponsors, Designed Beginnings, a shop specializing in super cute wall decals for nurseries and children’s rooms. I would totally be rocking one of these if we had a single free wall in our home. Vinyl decals are perfect for temporary solutions, like renters, young kids, or indecisive people like me 😉 I mean, of course, they could last for years, but it’s a fun little swap that can make a huge difference with very little effort.

Read on for details on entering to win a $50 credit towards a decal of your choice over at Designed Beginnings below!

Here are few of my favorites!

I would totally rock these giraffes out in a full size. The black decal against an all white background could be a really fun modern look!

Bath Updates + Giveaway

*** This giveaway is now closed – Check below to see who won! ***

Thank you to those of you that entered! Random.org has selected one lucky winner… Entry #68, Laura! She said “Toto me! I think I love the idea of a self-misting toilet. Anything to cut down on cleaning!” Congrats :)

It’s about to get weird. If you aren’t prepared to talk toilets today, beware. But seriously, you’ll be glad you stuck around for this one.

A few weeks ago, one of my April sponsors, National Builder Supply, offered to let us try out one of their products – the Toto Washlet, possibly the classiest toilet seat known to man. I’ll admit, I was a bit skeptical at first. Toilet seats aren’t something that make a regular appearance on the blog. I’m really more of a “Let’s build that!” and “How can we make that prettier?” type of girl.. Not so much “How can I make my home feel more like a fancy spa or hotel?”. That being said, let’s be real here for a minute, sometimes the only alone time a parent gets during a typical day is in the bathroom.. and that’s on a good day.

You guys, no lie, this thing has taken that time to any entirely new level of luxury. Without getting too indecent, let’s take a closer look.

01

First, install was a cinch. It comes with all the mounting and connection hardware you need for attaching to any basic toilet. You have to plug it into an outlet, so you’ll need to make sure you have one of those nearby (thank you electrician hubby). Then you’re just left with a tiny tube running parallel to the base. Not the prettiest thing, but at least it’s white and blends with the seat to some degree.

02

Now, the good stuff. I have two favorite elements, which in the grand scheme, are probably the smallest of features. First, the toilet seat has a damper. Hello, quiet closing, no more slamming, where have you been all my life? A simple upgrade, but just like the dampers on our kitchen cabinets – I will now be slamming toilet seats at every other residence around the world. And second, buns will never be subject to a cold seat on an early morning ever again. Heated seat. Heated, people. Why have I never experienced this before?

Those mini highlights aside, we can talk about the real aspects of the Toto. Sidenote – Howard Stern has one of these and he calls it by name, “Toto”. I now plan to do the same. A very close contender to my two favs, is the self cleaning feature. No one likes cleaning… well, at least not the toilet bowl. The Toto comes with an function that midsts the bowl after each use, reducing that precious cleaning time. Do you hear that? It’s the angels singing.

It also comes with a remote. A remote. I just really feel the need to reiterate that. A remote.. for the toilet. You have complete control over the washing right at your fingertips. Manage the water temperature, the pressure, even the position. Crazzzy.

03

Honestly, you really have to experience this one for yourself. It may seems a little ridiculous, but I promise you, you will never look back. I wish I could share the awesomeness that is the Toto with each and every one of you.

Luckily, the folks at National Builder Supply have offered to give away a Toto to one of you lucky readers! Nearly a $1,000 value! To enter, simply follow the instructions below.

HOW TO ENTER: Leave a comment below saying “Toto Me!”. Bonus points for listing your favorite feature!

Office Makeover + Giveaway

At the beginning of the year our kitchen cabinets got a serious organizational boost, and since then I’ve been itching to bring some order to the rest of the house. So, when Martha Stewart contacted me to try out her new Wall Manager (ok, not Martha herself. Let’s be real here people.) I jumped at the opportunity. My office area had some major flaws, one of those being the lack of storage. It’s temporarily located just inside the entry of our home, but temporary or not, it still needs to function. This is the main zone for all things blog related, bill paying, dr. appointments, etc. In other words, it gets some serious traffic.

A second issue, that I’ve wanted to update for quite some time, is the dot wall art. If I’m going to be stuck staring at a wall, it better be inspirational. Now, as much as I love the dot art, I’m really drawn towards more of an inspirational board, where I can pin pretty things and swap them in and out easily, as I’d like. And this is where our new Wall Manager comes into play! It’s part of Martha’s Martha Stewart Home Office with Avery line, available exclusively through Staples.

Umm, whoa. I heart this thing. I’ve accumulated quite the adorable collection of office supplies, and it’s always been stuffed in the desk drawers. Never again. Look how adorable it all looks on display. I’m obsessed. And I’ll be honest; I was a bit weary of installing something so “office geared” near the front door in fear that it might look too cluttered. Wrong. So wrong. It’s fabulous, and makes me smile every time I’m near.

Now, let’s talk installation. I consider myself pretty handy, so I wasn’t too worried, but man, do they make it easy on you. Each piece of the wall manager clips into a separate backing that is secured to the wall. This may be my favorite feature, in that it makes swapping out the boards super convenient. Say I want to switch up the calendar and the bulletin board, done. The back plates also come with tiny levelers built in, so making everything straight on the wall is a breeze.

I’ve been having way too much fun pinning up inspirational quotes and pics of the girls. Nothing makes me smile more.

And I love that there’s a nice spot for my planner and a notebook. They’re too pretty not to be staring back at me and it’s amazing have the desk space cleared.

I finally have a permanent home for my earphones, using these cute little hooks that slide right into the boards. And I’ll always know where my phone is.. well, the odds are better.
