How to Make Your Own Pore Strips from Le Petite Elephant
My husband and I tried out these homemade strips. I was blown away! It removed all the blackheads on our noses. It didn’t smell great, but with only two ingredients, it cost less than $1 for the two of us. To me this is a two thumbs up!
And I just have to share my biggest accomplishment this week! For those of you who don’t know, my husband and I have been traveling (for work) every week and some weekends since June! We’re finally starting to be at home… well, at least as much as we travel.
The problem is the house. It had become a disaster zone. We simply weren’t home enough to keep it clean. And when we were home we just sat all of our things everywhere. It was bad.
Two weekends ago we got the downstairs whipped in to shape. But last weekend, we tackled the office. One room versus the whole downstairs doesn’t sound that bad right? Wrong. For five months we had the same conversation: “Where does this go?” “I dunno. Put it in the office.”
It grew into this monster: (and that’s not even the worst part!)

And you didn’t even see the best part: the closet! Everything is organized in soon-to-be-labeled, easily accessible tubs and bins. It is an order I can keep up. Now the room is a perfect blank canvas for that redo on my to-do list.
I hope you enjoyed my first roundup as much as I did. Have a wonderful weekend!
