Style – A home decor, DIY, and entertaining blog
I do not have a marketing degree. Or a graphic design degree, or a slew of many other business and design related degrees that someone running their own private label may have. I only have my little science degree and the experiences I’ve had in the 3o+ years of life I’ve lived. I say this because I know that some big parts of my business are not my forte. I do, however, LOVE wrapping gifts, making things pretty, playing with stickers, and sending snail mail. This is probably why packing up my Grandiflora goodies before they head to their forever homes is such a fun part of my job.

For the Mudpuppy giveaway she commented: "So this summer me and the kids made a summer fun jar so I don't have to be as creative everyday. Each week they pick out an outing, a food to make, and an activity to do at home and we make sure we do all three that week.

2 Super Simple Sangria Recipes If you've never had Sangria before you are in for a treat. I adore wine but it can be so fun to add seasonal fruits (plus a sweetener).

Here are are two super simple variations of Sangria that anybody can make and enjoy!

How Google and Nest could get the smart home all wrong Welcome to the Google smart home: You walk up your steps and use your Android device (or iOS app) to open your smart lock and signal to the network that you've arrived, whereupon your Nest thermostat turns the heat up to a comfy 71 degrees and Nest smart lights adjust the brightness to optimize energy use. Meanwhile, your Samsung refrigerator that now relies on Android -- earlier models having proven that the native Samsung smart appliance software just couldn't cut it -- sends you a notification to let you know you have just enough parmesan for tonight's recipe, but will have to buy some more next time you shop. Scratch that. It already noted that on your Google Doc grocery list.
