Welcome

If you’re like most women, your day’s looked something like this so far:

  • Wake up (too) early
  • Greet the day (and your kids who are already begging for sugary cereal - who gave those kids coffee when you weren’t looking, anyway?)
  • Grab a shower (lock the door! there’s got to be some place you can have a moment alone… even if all the hot water’s already gone)
  • Get dressed (dig, dig, dig through that pile of laundry - there’s a bra in there somewhere!)
  • Off to the races!

Whether you work outside the home, stay home with kids, or have managed to design some other schedule that’s so amazing the rest of us might be jealous, there’s still one thing we’ve got in common…

We are today’s women. We’re doing our best to make life great for ourselves and those around us. We’re making it happen - every day.

So this blog’s for you.

A chance to kick back (even for just a minute or two), to connect, to chuckle, to get some good tips and tricks, and to celebrate being a woman.

And hey, we all know how hard it can be to get your two cents in throughout the day - it’s an amazing thing to be heard.

So, here’s your chance. Sound off, vent, boast, or just ask what you’ve always wanted to know - this is your site, and your few minutes.

Make it a great day!

Decorating on a Budget

Ladies. Decorating a home is a continous event. In most cases, whenever we step out of the house, we find one decoration item or the other to buy.

If you are on a tight budget, the best option is to sit down and list out what you need to decoration the home on a paper.

There are several discount shops around and the best bet is to visit one of them.

DIY: Landscaping Like a Pro

Landscape like a pro!

Landscape like a pro!

If you want to make your yard look like a garden, landscape it yourself.

Maybe you just recently moved into a new home. You want to make the yard your own. But you don’t have the money in your budget to hire a professional landscape designer.

Don’t worry.

You can do it yourself and save a lot of money.

The biggest thing it will cost you is some time and imagination.

Like anything else, landscape design requires a plan on paper. First, think about what kinds of plants you want. Take a trip to your local nursery and research. Make a rough sketch of your yard. Then, start drawing in the items you want.

It doesn’t have to be pretty, just functional.

If you are low on ideas, by a few gardening magazines. They provide an easy way to get information and show pictures that may give you some ideas for your own project.

To save money, do not buy the most expensive items in the Spring.

If you wait until the end of summer, nurseries will put everything on sale to clear their inventory. Often, you can save from 50% to 70% off plants during end of season clearance sales.

You don’t have to do everything at once.

Set yourself a budget and buy a few things at a time. This will make it easier to avoid burnout from all of the physical labor entailed in landscaping a yard.

Once you complete your garden, invite your friends over for a barbecue.
