Updated Linen Closet Using ACP Vinyl Tiles

This post is sponsored by The Home Depot.  All opinions expressed are solely my own.

Do you happen to remember when I transformed my linen closet?  It was one of my favorite projects.  With the addition of paint and wallpaper it became a nice space to store my toiletries.

Over the years the wallpaper began to peel and was peppered with bulges.  It was embarrassing!  

So imagine my delight when I was contacted by The Home Depot and asked to partner with them using their Acoustic Ceiling Products.  It was just the motivation I needed to get my hot mess of a linen closet cleaned up!   

The vinyl tiles
were so easy to work with.  No special tools required!  I break down the process over at The Apron Blog.  Please click over here to view the full tutorial.

Cleaning With Mean Green Outside

As much as I love the warm weather that summer season brings, mosquitoes halt all my outdoor housekeeping plans. Oftentimes, I cannot tend to my yard because the mosquitoes seem to attack me. As a result, things have been a bit neglected. Fortunately, the air has gotten cooler and the mosquitoes have tapered off so I can finally get back to doing what I love most.

 My patio was in dire need of TLC. Leaves and dirt scattered the table, my flower pots looked weathered down from the elements and the entire area just seemed dirty.

 Usually, I use soap and warm water to clean everything off, but I needed something stronger this time around.

Using Mean Green Super Strength, I wiped everything down. The patio table and my flower pots looked good as new with very little effort.

 With a few flower changes and the addition of classic miniature pumpkins, I welcomed the autumn season with open arms.

In no time, my patio table was streak-free and ready for an evening outside with family and friends.

I am extremely happy with the results I received from using Mean Green products and they are a brand I consistently use and love.

Whenever you are in a cleaning situation like my own or merely want to put a pep in your cleaning routine, I strongly recommend Mean Green products for the clean you need!

Think TaZa: Drama-Free Drinkware

I have broken many glasses while unloading the dishwasher.  Just recently, I tipped a wine glass over and the stem broke.  I'll admit I can be a little clumsy, but I barely tapped it!  Glass is delicate and easy to break.

So you can imagine my excitement when I was contacted by TaZa Design and asked to review their unbreakable drinkware and bottle opener.

 When I opened the box they felt sturdy and looked like glass.  They wash great in the dishwasher; no chips or chance of breaking.
 The Pop the Top Automatic Bottle Opener is simple and actually fun to use!

 As you push down the grip pulls the bottle cap off the bottle.  You'll hear it "pop" while using little pressure.

 The glasses can be used daily or look elegant enough for wine and dinner with friends.

 They're great for drinks.  I used them this week while we sipped on a late summer sangria.

 The recipe was delicious!  A nice glass makes the wine taste better.
