Plus, there’s the fact that the post title is “an owl birthday party” so … ding ding ding You got it! How clever of you ;) One thing I love doing when celebrating first birthdays is using pieces I already have, or plan on buying, from their rooms. I knew I wanted Olivia’s First Birthday to match the color scheme in her nursery: aqua, white, grey and black. That way I wouldn’t have to buy […]

I am always up for a challenge when it comes to making my own remedies, beauty products, and cleaning supplies. So I was beyond excited to continue my journey towards a healthier lifestyle by eliminating my exposure to harmful ingredients found in a regular toothpaste. What is wrong with my toothpaste? To begin with, Fluoride is the main ingredient in toothpaste … and rat poison. It is categorized as a “toxic drug” by the FDA. Fluoride can cause side effects like damage to the brain, decreased IQ in children, damage to the pineal gland, thyroid gland, bones, gastrointestinal tract, and cancers.

White Dresser Makeover

White Dresser Makeover | Te Amo Too

I am so happy you all enjoyed little Olivia’s Nursery. Today I wanna show you a simple makeover I did on the dresser. This is certainly one of my “if I can do it, you can DIY” projects. Believe me! It took me so long to paint my first piece of furniture. I wish I had started painting furniture a long time ago. It is so easy and it makes a huge difference. During my search for all white furniture, an acquaintance offered to give me this chest of drawers. At first I thought it looked weird, mostly because of […]

Aqua and Gray Nursery | Te Amo Too

Hello friends. I’m so happy you are here. Today I want to give you a little tour into Olivia’s Nursery – you can see more pictures of this little booger right here. To start this room we need to go to the place where all dreams begin, to a place that gets your creative juices flowing, a place where all the impossible seems possible: Pinterest, of course! One of my very first pins (oh milestones) was this office by Mary McDonald. Isn’t it beautiful?! To start the decorating process, I asked myself what everyone should ask after pinning something they like, or finding […]

DIY Soft Scrub | Te Amo Too

 There is no better thing than finding a good go-to recipe – okay, there are many better things, but I think we can all agree that finding a recipe that you can use time and time again is pretty great. And this soft scrub is one you will want to keep!

UPDATE . Vacuum Cleaner Dilemma

Vacuum Cleaner Dilemma | Te Amo Too

This is the post you all have been waiting for: the update on my vacuum cleaner dilemma! I know … very important right?! not! So which one did I choose? The answer is: The Shark Navigator Lift Away. Price I bought it at Bed Bath and Beyond and used my 20% off coupon. It came to a total of 172.79 dollars. So not that expensive – like a Dyson – but under 180.00 dollars like I wanted. Barely! Weight It is not the lightest vacuum on Earth, but it’s definitely lighter than the ginormous Bissell we had. It’s fairly easy […]
