Hey all! Valentine’s day is around the corner and I don’t know about you, but it’s a family day around here. The kids and I generally put on as much red as we can muster up and spend the day cutting out red construction paper hearts to string for garland. We finish off the evening with some yummy food on our fanciest dishes, toast to our family with sparkling cider, and eat yummy Valentine’s Day cake! On top of all that we surprise each other with small gifts  – some are homemade and others not so much. So I’ve rounded up some of my family’s favorite Valentine goodies for yall from the one and only Walmart! Some of the items are fun and very affordable and others like my oh so favorite scent – Coco Chanel Mademoiselle are a bit on the pricey side. But this has to be my all-time favorite scent and when I wear it I get so many compliments. On the other hand, Donna Karan cashmere mist comes in a close second and is much more affordable! So whether your shopping for your family or yourself – I think you’ll thoroughly enjoy some of our favorites!

“A flower does not think to compete with the flower next to it. It just blooms.”

I don’t know if you’ve heard of a little online boutique called Cloth and Cabin, but it’s probably my favorite little shop out there. Number one – the items are so unique and have exceptional quality, but the creators – (the girls) are fun-loving free spirits and it’s so evident in their shop!

Beddys bedding and the 5 reasons it’s the best bedding for kids!

Read more

Decor and Styling | February 12, 2019

There’s An easier, better way to make your kids bed! I’ve recently partnered with Beddys to try out their bedding for my boy’s room. I have to be honest, this was one partnership that I have been itching to do! I have been a huge fan of their bedding for quite some time, but I was totally scared off by the price. So I never made the switch. Now, having them for about a month I’m totally kicking myself for not switching sooner. The kids are making their beds every day and it looks perfect every time! They’re staying in their beds all night long which makes mom and dad happy and washing their beddding is easier than ever. I’ve already promised my daughter that I’ll order her a set this week! This bedding has seriously saved me time, stress, and has given me peace of mind! It’s absolutely the best bedding out there for kids and I’ve put together the top 5 reasons why Beddys ROCKS! Plus Beddys has graciously offered a 20% discount code to all of my readers. Use THEFARMHOUSELIFE20 at checkout. CLICK HERE!

 

 

REason number one – The Easiest bed to make ever!

My favorite thing about BEDDYS  is how easy it is to make their beds. Literally one zip and the bed looks perfectly made every time. It saves me time in the morning because the kids can make their own beds every day and I don’t have to re-make them – if you know what I mean. Putting Beddys bedding on the kid’s mattresses took less than 5 minutes! Seriously, I just unrolled it and put the bedding on like a fitted sheet and voila. Done!

 

 

REASON NUMbER TWO – washing made easy

Washing bedding in the past has been an all-day ordeal. I separate the sheets and the pillowcases from the blanket and the comforter. This turns into 3 or 4 loads of laundry. Then drying everything is just a pain in the butt! Beddys has changed all that for me! Now, washing has turned into one load and one dry cycle every 2 weeks! It’s been a major time saver and a life changer for me! For twin beddys bedding, they recommend throwing the whole set in the wash completely zippered up and using cold water. Also, be sure to take the bedding out of the washer right away and tumble dry on low.  It’s super easy and quick!

 

 

REASON NUMbER THREE – keeps kids in bed all night long

Since my 4-year-old transitioned out of the toddler bed, it’s not uncommon for him to roll right out of bed at night and hit the floor.  I’m sure we’re all so familiar with the sound they make when hitting the floor. Sometimes they sleep right through it! Beddys keeps my kids zippered up so they stay put! It’s a great alternative to using a bed rail. No need to worry about their blankets falling off at night either because Beddys all-in-one bedding stays zipped up all night long . My kids describe it as a big hug snuggling them up at night! Which in turn keeps them in their beds all night long and out of my bed – which helps me sleep better.

 

 

REASON NUMbER FOUR – The coziest bedding of all time

Beddys is an all-in-one bedding, meaning its the whole package! It includes the sheet, cuddle blanket, and comforter all wrapped into one! The set comes with a matching pillowcase and coordinating sham. There’s a minky cuddle blanket sewn into the comforter and it’s ridiculously soft and comfortable! The best part is that it includes a comfort panel which gives extended coverage and protection from the zipper. So when my boys are snuggled in their beds they don’t feel the zipper, just the soft minky blanket. The comforter and sheets are made of 100% cotton with a 300 thread count. The boys definitely have the best bedding in the house. I actually find myself staying and cuddling a little longer than needed at bedtime… I can’t help it! That minky  material is amazingly soft!

 

 

REASON NUMBER FIVE – quality and DURABILITY

Beddys bedding is all handmade and has exceptional quality. I was a little nervous about the zipper functionality. I was afraid it would get caught and the zipper would break.  After receiving my boys Beddys, I realized that the zippers are heavy duty and they zip up quite smoothly. The fabric is also incredibly durable. The quilted, 100% cotton exterior makes it look like the quilt is tucked in nicely! There’s also elastic around the bottom of the bedding to hold it tightly in place so it doesn’t shift.

 

 

pros and cons

The biggest reason I didn’t pull the trigger earlier on this bedding was because of the price. It starts at about $250 and for a momma of three that adds up real quick! I soon realized that the cost of sheets and pillowcases, a blanket, and a comforter with a coordinating sham would probably total up to about the same price. Plus the quality is out of this world and I know that my boys Beddys bedding will last a very long time. There are so many pros to Beddys bedding that it’s hard to pick my favorite. I mean it’s easy to put on, zipper up, clean,  and not to mention they come in some really cute patterns! I’d probably have to say that I’ve noticed a real difference in my children’s sleeping patterns and for this momma, I’ll do just about anything to help my kids sleep better at night! – and for that, I say Thank you Beddys for creating a one of a kind bedding that makes my kids think they’re getting a hug all night long.

 

 

don’t take it from me – take it from this guy!

DIY | January 20, 2019

I made the switch! Ok… I’m sure you’ve all seen the advertisements for Grove Collaborative. They’re everywhere on social media! Nobody likes to be sold to… So for so long I, like lots of other people, have turned their eyes away. I really didn’t want to like them.. but honestly, I FINALLY gave them a shot and I’m so glad I did!

They deliver safe products right to your door…which for me saves me from my overspending, particularly at Target. I’ll go in for toilet paper and bananas and I come out $200 later. Using Grove, I set up my monthly orders (or bi-monthly for the things I don’t use as often) and then don’t give it another thought! They’re delivered right to my door.. saving me money because the products seem to be a few dollars less than in the store.

 

 

free HAND SOAP and $10 credit

Right now Grove is offering a $10 credit and a free Mrs. Meyers hand soap! They’re always running freebies and giveaways… Which I LOVE!! …and today ONLY –  All Seventh Generation products are 20% off. Use this Link to get your deal!!

 

 

easy to find non- toxic products

I’m always looking to replace my hygiene products with healthier non-toxic versions… but they can be hard to find!!! Grove not only sells kitchen essentials but personal hygiene products too. I even started buying mine and my children’s vitamin from GRove.. which saves me time from the 10 different sites i was biuying thm all from.
