Anti-Procrastination Weekly Update




It is officially springtime here in the midwest. I’m honestly freaking out (in a good way) because I am giddy over the beauty of tulips, daffodils & spring-flowering trees, but also freaking out (in a bad way) because I see weeds and dandelions in my yard already!

I have been so focused on learning new routines for keeping the inside of my home clean that I have ignored the outside and honestly just want to keep ignoring it!

Last week I made some homemade cleaners that I can’t wait to share with you. They are in glass spray bottles and stored in a caddy that is so cute I don’t want to put it away! I have kept it out on my counter and have been using the cleaners like crazy! They smell amazing thanks to these essential oils, and their cleaning power has blown me away. I will be sharing soon so make sure you are subscribed to have my posts come right your inbox so that you don’t miss a thing!

Latest Obsessions

{some are affiliate links}


Trader Joes Jelly Beans, Walmart Polka Dot Mug, Fairy Lights

So many of my obsessions in one photo! The main obsession this week was Trader Joes Jelly Beans. I love that there are no artificial colors or flavors. They have added some fun color to my table platter and great delight in my girl’s easter baskets.

Here are the details on the rest of the platter: Fairy lights stuck in a jar are so very pretty, both day and especially at night. The gold polka dot mug is from Walmart. The flowers and dried flat-leafed eucalyptus are both from Trader Joes. Last but not least, the gold straw himmelis are homemade by me! They are made out of wire, plastic straws, and gold spray paint. For DIY Himmeli instructions, see this post.

Burt's Bees Lip Balm in Rose - A Fav!

Burts Bees Tinted Lip Balm – Rose

This Burt’s Bees Tinted Lip Balm in Rose is the perfect spring/summer shade. It adds just a bit of rose color tint but goes on so easy as a moisturizing lip balm. I love that I don’t need a mirror to apply this, just swipe on and go! It smells good, adds moisture and just the right amount of tint. Love!


Ongoing Obsessions

Clean Mama Simply Clean Book

Simply Clean Book

I’ve been so inspired by the book  Simply Clean by Becky Rapinchuk. Becky is the founder of Clean Mama and knows what she is doing when it comes to cleaning!

I have been using her routines when it comes to keeping my home clean, and I’m blown away at how well they work with minimal effort! I have the daily and weekly routines (listed above) down and I’m about to implement her 28 Day Simply Clean Challenge as my Spring Cleaning this season. Get the book and do it with me?

Kindle Fire

I am on the last and final season of Downton Abbey. I know, I know, I am a bit behind the times. I watch it on my Kindle Fire, in the evenings tucked in bed. It’s like my own perfect sized, personal television. Before I indulge, I make sure I read at least a chapter or two of whatever book is on my Kindle. I love using the same device to both read and watch.


Essential Oil Diffuser

Still using it daily and love it! The Aromatherapy Essential Oil Diffuser by AromaSoft is amazing for getting the scent out into larger rooms. It is priced very reasonably and works so well! After buying 4 other diffusers, I did some research, read a ton of reviews, and bought this one. I’m so happy I did!
