1. Homemade Silver Cleaner
One of my favorite silver necklaces that I was dying to wear had become tarnished. The idea of driving to the grocery store just to get silver cleaner was out of the question so I did what I always do- I googled it! Low and behold there is a super easy and free way to clean silver jewelry.
I followed these directions here and listed them below. I only soaked mine for 10 minutes because it wasn't too tarnished.
Ingredients for Homemade Silver Cleaner:
- 1 quart of hot water
- 1 tablespoon of baking soda

2. Tuffed Ottoman from Overstock
We're in the process of decorating our basement which is going to be a tv room/playroom so I'm looking for an ottoman to use down there. I am leaning toward this one from Overstock because it's cheap and I that way I won't get upset if it gets ruined by my husband, the dog, or Miller.
Does anyone have experience ordering furniture from Overstock.com? I've never done it before but a lot of people love it and have great experience.
3. Seche Vite Fast Drying Top Coat
I'm 95% sure I've blogged about this before but this is hands down the best top coat ever. I refuse to pay for manicures because they wear off in 3 days so I do all my own manicures and with this top coat they will last a week. Not only that your nails are completely dry in 5 minutes!! You really can't beat that.

5. Amazon Prime
I signed up for a trial and now I'm sold. The one or two day free shipping is amazing. I pretty much try to order anything I possibly can off Amazon now because I'm so addicted.
