When it comes to decorating my house, it seems like there is always something that feels like it needs to be done. Where to start? Sometimes I search the internet endlessly for inspiration and then find myself lost past the point of my motivation dying.

Things like that can be pretty hard to find!

My husband and I were really excited about planning a garden. Our backyard is mostly weeds and sand/dirt so we thought we should make something of it and create some above-ground planting boxes. Before we laid the boxes down, we needed to kill all the weeds and grass that were going to be growing underneath the boxes. While this grass would not have come in contact with the actual vegetation in the boxes, we did want to make sure to ever prevent it from growing just in case. You can lay weed blocker down and hope it works or you can use something like Spectracide which can kill any vegetation that it comes in contact with.

This is one of my favorite go-to diy recipes using essential oils. I use this hand sanitizer ALL the time. It works great and is especially great for those with sensitive skin. I can’t use hand sanitizer with alcohol on my daughter because it makes her itchy, so this is a great alternative and we highly recommend it!
