Get The Look: Houzz Worthy Trough Sink Bathroom

NEW! Follow my blog with Bloglovin


Modern Spaces by Philadelphia General Contractors Osborne Construction


Sometimes you see  a great space on Houzz and you can't wait to figure out how to copy it. That's how I felt after seeing this gorgeous master bathroom remodel by Osborne Construction. Luckily, copying this look won't be so difficult with a little help from Amazon.com!

First, the wall mounted Teorema double trough sink by Scarabeo - not easy to find, but there are two sellers who are selling it in Amazon marketplace. Yay!

Teorema double trough sink by Scarabeo
I love the combination of minimalist modern trough sink topped with an over the top ornate gold modern faucet. And if you want top quality and cutting edge looks - go for the Kohler Purist as the designers did on this project.



Buy the Kohler Purist on Amazon for Free Prime Shipping and low online price!
Complete the look with the full line of Kohler Purist accessories at Amazon.com, square and hex ceramic tile and teak accents like shower benches and floor mats.

Is your toddler up, walking and into just about EVERYTHING? That means it is time to buy them a play kitchen! A play kitchen is a rite of passage for both boys and girls, and there's almost no way for parents to avoid it - no matter how small your living space.

When my daughter was small, I tried to find a more modern, understated play kitchen which would be less obtrusive in our living room. But I have to admit, no play kitchen keeps the kids engaged as well as this one by Little Tykes. With doors that open and realistic features like knobs that turn, faucet and "stainless steel" look accents, the kids will love copying mom and dad in their kid sized version of the home kitchen.

Size wise, this kitchen is perfect for small spaces and fits nicely in a corner so you can keep more space open for play. See what other parents have to say about this toy by reading Amazon's Verified Purchaser reviews.



By Meagan on October 22, 2013
Verified Purchase
"For the price, this kitchen is great. I got it for my son last Christmas right around when he was turning 2. He still plays with it, asking if I want coffee and cake all the time. I really enjoys it. My son has a small playroom that's originally a dining room. Seeing as this kitchen fits in the corner, it's great for space, leaving plenty of room for a table, chairs, and a shelf I'm using for his 'toy box.' I plan on adding a train table to his room this year and with the size of the kitchen there will be plenty of room to move around."

Parents love this kitchen and how well it keeps their kids occupied Many have stated that they definitely get their money's worth with this top toy. Click here to read more reviews and purchase this play kitchen on Amazon.

Air Hogs Star Wars Remote Control Ultimate Millennium Falcon Quad

The Most Wished for RC Toy of 2015


http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00U7EXH72/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=390957&creativeASIN=B00U7EXH72&linkCode=as2&tag=findlike-20&linkId=REQM7UH3IUQGGZQE

 

BUY IT NOW: Top Toys of 2015


I know, it's not even Halloween yet, but when you see a new toy getting tons of traction (and advertising) you know it will be a Holiday hit. That's the case with the Air Hogs Star Wars Remote Control Ultimate Millennium Falcon Quad. Already a hit on Amazon with 125 customer reviews and #1 on the New Releases list, this is a toy to put not just on your list - but in your shopping cart - if you have a boy between the ages of 6-66 this Holiday Season.

Why THIS Toy?

If you were like me and fell for last year's rechargeable RC Helicopter that everyone was buying, then you definitely owe your child a do-over. Those helicopters were a pain! Constantly breaking, hard to maneuver, and I hate to admit it, but we went through more than one repair kit to fix it up after bad crashes.

This toy is better. Here's why:
  • Sturdy construction can take crashes without needing repairs. 
  • Realistic lights and sound effects make it easy to recreate your favorite scenes from the Star Wars Series.
  • The retro appeal of the Star Wars series means that Dad will love this toy too...might want to buy 2 to avoid tears! (Daddy's not sharing!")

Read the customer reviews to see how fans love the sturdy construction, ease of use and rechargeable battery that this toy offers.

Here's the review shoppers rated the most helpful:

5.0 out of 5 stars 
The lights and sounds effects are add a nice realistic touch

Healthy, Unprocessed Snacks for Kids

Why Unprocessed Snacks?

If you have kids, then you probably hear "I'm hungry" several times a day. Sometimes my kids have not even finished eating a meal when they start asking for a snack.

Although it is tempting to pull out some packaged treat from the pantry you do need to think of the effects of those convenient snack packs on their health, the environment, and of course, your wallet.

Below I will share with you some ideas for keeping a well stocked pantry of healthy, unprocessed and inexpensive snacks that will keep your kids happy...and inevitably, asking for more.

Use Amazon Prime Pantry to Stock Up

Find clean eating staples on Amazon for less

 

Having trouble finding clean eating pantry staples near you? Or are they just ridiculously expensive at your local store? Try using Amazon's new service, Amazon Prime Pantry, to create a pantry box full of essentials to get you on your way to clean eating and snacking.

Another way for Amazon Prime members to get the most out of their membership, Prime Pantry allows users to fill a large "Pantry box" with everyday sized staples at Amazon.com low prices. No buying in bulk with the excess and waste associated with that. Just every day sizes at Amazon low prices - and the ability to take advantage of Amazon coupons that can save you up to 25%. Then the box ships for only $5.99 - no matter the contents.

How would I fill my clean eating Pantry box?Here are some options below.

 

Pop some Popcorn

We all love salty, crunchy snacks. But before you reach for the chips and pretzels, take a second look at popcorn. Not the buttery, over-salted kind that comes in microwaveable bags with questionable chemical additives. It is surprisingly easy AND cheap to make a bag of microwave popcorn with some kernels and a brown paper bag. Here is an easy step-by-step guide. This home made version can be entirely salt and fat free if you so wish. Or else a little melted butter, salt or even a shake of Old Bay seasoning can be added for some salty, spicy kick. And at $0.13 a serving, nothing could be cheaper. I picked up some movie theater style popcorn containers at the Target $1 bin which make this treat even more fun for the kids.

 

Organize Your Healthy Pantry

Ball Jars and OXO Containers Make it Easy!

 

When I kicked the processed food habit, one thing I noticed was that my pantry was a mess of plastic bags from the bulk bins. I went out and bought glass canning jars to get myself organized and I love the way my pantry looks now. All my jars are lined up neatly and I can immediately take stock of what I have, what is running low, and what I need to replenish. These jars are available seasonally in grocery stores, and year-round on Amazon.com.

Perfect for storing popcorn, nuts, dried fruit and beans...and anything else you can imagine. Make sure you pick up a wide mouth funnel and wax pencils for easy filling and labeling too.
Half Gallon Wide Mouth Canning Jars come in a pack of 6 and are perfect for storing snacks, soaking grains and even making sun tea!. Get the lowest price at Amazon.com

 

Save on OXO Good Grips Food Storage on Amazon

OXO 10-Piece Good Grips Pop Containers SetThese square containers by OXO Good Grips are the perfect space savers for your healthy pantry. Click to see all sizes on Amazon and maximize your pantry space with their smart, space saving design. 

Cut up Some Fruit

Make it fresh AND fast

We all want to give our kids fresh fruit to snack on, but it always seems like a hassle when it comes to prep time - washing, peeling, slicing....they just want their snack NOW! Plus, if you don't keep on top of it, fruit can go bad in the fridge. Here are some of the easiest options to help you always be ready with a fresh, sweet treat you can feel good about.

Apples are tops when it comes to a versatile, long lasting treat. In stores year round and reasonably priced, these can be sliced and served with a dip (peanut butter, or honey) or just tossed whole at older kids who enjoy eating them straight off the core. I keep my apple slicer handy and have even considered buying a second one because many times when I need it it is siting in the dishwasher, dirty from the last apple.

Serving up some apples or pears? Make it fast and easy with a corer/slicer!


Other easy snacks include Grapes and blueberries (no cutting required!). I also love watermelon and pineapple because once you put the effort in to cut them up you have a good amount of fruit which can last a few days in the fridge. Take a look below for some great tools which make fruit prep easy and fun.

healthy unprocessed veggie snacks for kids

Slice up Some Veggies

Believe it or not, there ARE vegetables that your child will eat

 

Admittedly, it's not easy getting kids to eat their veggies. But a little perseverance and a lot of dip does pay off. Don't be dissuaded if your kids turn their noses up at these snacks at first. Research shows you have to put a new food in front of a child multiple times before they develop a taste for it. And while you are waiting for them to catch on, you can finish those healthy snacks they leave behind.

The cheapest and easiest by far are carrots. Some like baby carrots for the convenience factor, but I have found that large carrots - the kind that come in a cello bag for about $1 - are tastier by far. I prep a whole bunch of them at the beginning of the week and put them in a plastic container with a little bit of water to keep them moist. My daughter likes them dipped in peanut butter (but then again she likes everything dipped in peanut butter) but home made hummus or a creamy veggie dip or even honey mustard are great options too.

Some other easy veggies to prep and store for a weeks worth of snacks include:
-- Cauliflower
-- Cucumbers
-- Red, yellow and orange peppers
-- Celery

Get Baking!

You might think that snacks like pretzels, goldfish crackers and animal crackers are purchase-only treats, but you would be surprised to know how easy it is to make wholesome, unprocessed versions of these in your own kitchen. The time put in is well worth the reward.

These snacks are fun to eat AND make, and will store well in airtight containers - so feel comfortable making a double batch for future snacking. Here are some of my favorite recipes:

 

Granola

A sweet crunchy snack for anytime

Granola is a versatile snack. Serve it with milk as a breakfast cereal, dry as a snack of fashioned into bars or squares as a treat. You can alter almost any granola recipe to suit your family's tastes - replace raisins with cranberries, walnuts with almonds, etc.
Granola stores well - keep it in an airtight container and it can stay fresh for weeks. It is high in fiber and protein. And best of all, making your own granola is not only easy, but also cost efficient compared to its cost at the grocery store.

Although granola gets a bad rap for being high in fat and sugar, you will find that you can adapt any recipe to make it more healthy without compromising the taste, and create a snack that your family will crave.

Below are some of my picks for healthy, easy granola recipes.
