Pantry Meal Planning

Anchor Hocking Glass Cylinder Canisters

Do you ever look at your overcrowded closet and think to yourself, “I have a ton of clothes but nothing to wear.” Well, that’s how I feel about my pantry right now. SO much food, but no meals ideas.

Xavier and I recently dove head first in to the crazy world of house hunting. It’s been a two-week long whirlwind experience, but luckily, we’ve had a wonderful team rooting us on. We found a great house, and we’ve put in an offer (scary!), so here’s to hoping the rest goes smoothly. Since it’s a very distinct possibility that Xavier and I will be moving in just 30 days, we spent the weekend cleaning, organizing and tidying, preparing our rental home to be shown. In an effort to spend as little as possible at the grocery store over the next couple of weeks and clean out our bursting pantry and freezer, Xavier and I decided to see just how creative we could get with our meal planning. Here’s the list we came up with.


Nail Polish Acrylic Table Display

Nail Polish Acrylic Shelves

For quite some time my nail polish has been gathering dust in a large shoe box in the corner of my room. I used to keep them in plastic, rectangular drawer organizers but ran out of drawer space. While the drawer organizers were tidy and allowed for a certain amount of organization, I really wanted to display my polished so I could see my color selection at a glance.

I looked into purchasing acrylic nail polish wall racks, but I am currently living in a rental home, so I try to put as few holes in the wall as possible. I added it to my one-day-maybe-eventually list, and didn’t think about it again until I stumbled across this Nail Polish Table Rack Display on Amazon. A table top display?  Duh, Kelsey, why did you not think of that before?


Lipstick Acrylic Storage

Acrylic Lipstick Organizer

Spring is here! And it’s about time. Last March I gave my vanity a nice little makeover, and a year later there were still a few things that weren’t quite right, so I thought it was about time to look into new storage options for my lipstick.

I had put my lipsticks in this little box, which appeared nice in the photos, but if you took one out, the rest would topple over. And then, after acquiring a few more lipsticks (how did that happen?), they simply didn’t fit. I wanted to find a storage solution that didn’t take up much room but would house most of my collection- I have 26-ish lipsticks, 24 of which I keep at my vanity and at least 2 are in my purse at any given time. I was also looking for something that was sturdy that I could keep around for awhile. And lastly, I wanted to find something affordable!


Boots Botanics Ionic Clay Mask Review #powerofplants

Boots Botanics Ionic Clay Mask

You know in teen movies when the girl is fresh out of the shower in her fluffy, pink robe, hair tied up in a towel-turban, working on her pedicure while sporting a super-attractive green mask? Chances are, she was wearing a clay mask.

I always loved how clay masks and the feeling as they dry on your skin. Not only do clay masks remove purify the skin, but they also deep clean. With the acne on my cheeks and along my temples acting up, I’ve been in the market for a good clay mask. In comes Boots Botanics Ionic Clay Mask.


Walmart To Go Review

Walmart To Go

I absolutely love food, cooking food and eating food, so why is it that I can’t stand shopping for food? Grocery shopping is without a doubt in my Top 5 Things I Hate to Do List. Let’s be real, there’s never a good time for it. If you go on the weekend, it’s a total zoo. If you go on a weeknight, it’s not as crowded, but then you’re sacrificing a relaxing evening at home after a long day at work. Not ideal.

When I was told about Walmart To Go grocery service, I thought, “Too good to be true?” This is what I’ve been waiting for. I even remember when I was younger my mom telling me that one day this would be a reality, and here it is! And it isn’t too good to be true. You place your order online and you can either pick it up for free (they pack the items for you!) or pay $5-7 for delivery. It’s that easy. And it’s not just groceries!! Electronics, office supplies, toys.. This will change the way I shop forever. If it’s possible, Xavier is even more excited about this than I am.

Right now Walmart To Go is only available in select markets, but you can still sign up with your email address to get an alert when it’s available in your area.
