Every time the weather lifts and I see some sunshine I’m all, YAY IT’S SPRING. Then the next day it snows and I’m like =\ Febreze has it’s latest collection out for Spring, so at least I can have the inside of my house smell like the weather isn’t arctic.
Spring scents to me are always fresh and ever-so-slightly floral. So, hands-down my fave fragrance from Febreze is a new, limited edition one called Rain. I actually picked up a candle today at Walmart in that scent to match the Set & Refresh below that I keep in my living room. I’m also in the market for a new car, so I can’t wait to add the Rain vent clip in there once I buy!
On a sunny, Spring day you can usually find me outside as much as possible with the kids. We haven’t had much of that spring yet, so for now I’ll just enjoy my indoor “Rain” and maybe some Sweet Pea Petals and wait for the day that I can finally open up the windows and enjoy the season!

Tissue boxes don’t always have to be synonymous with sickness. Because Kleenex partners with fantastic designers like Isaac Mizrahi (who has created 4 designs for Kleenex that are intended to evoke confidence and inspiration to help you express your personal style) you can make sure the Kleenex box you’re placing in every room can also match every room while adding flair.
To celebrate Kleenex’s 90th anniversary, they’re bringing you another innovative first: The Kleenex® Style Studio. It’s a fun, inspiring way to discover more of the Kleenex® Brand designs and products you love. And maybe even a few that’ll take you by surprise.
Did you know that Kleenex started out as facial tissue for removing makeup? I didn’t! Or that Kleenex has been in the MOMA twice! Kleenex also invented Social in 1941 with a campaign called True Confessions. They have 90 years of style under their belt and I love having these designs in my home (hey, if I can’t afford to wear Isaac Mizrahi at least my tables can!).
Now, one of my favorite things – the small travel packs you throw in your purse are now even smaller! Kleenex has made a flatter style that makes it easier to slide into the pockets of your jeans or in your clutch (though my every day bag is clearly much bigger than a clutch)!
Click to find your style now at the Kleenex® Style Studio. Which style suits you the best? Talk to me about your home decor and style in the comments!
Many thanks to Kleenex for sponsoring today’s story, and keeping my home & handbag stylish!

I can’t believe it’s finally April! I thought March would never end! Because I have better weather and a good time on the mind I decided to try a look I’ve always been interested in that is again wildly popular – mod. When I think of a mod beauty look I immediately think of Rimmel for #BeautyInspiration. Because of their recent Retro Glam campaign I wanted to Go Big. Go Bold. Go Over the Top. I had a few of the items I needed at home, and I went to Walmart and purchased the others – including a new tube of one of my personal favorite drugstore mascaras. (In honor of this month being RIMMEL’s 180 year anniversary there will be a $1 off coupon in the Sunday newspaper for each of the the Retro Glam Mascara and Stay Matte Liquid Mousse Foundation!)
That first pic shows quite a bit of product. But it all plays a necessary part in going Mod. Don’t worry, I’ll break it down so that it all makes sense
To begin the Mod look you’ll want to start with the eyes (in case there is shadow fall-out or you mess up and need to start over you won’t have to mess up your gorgeous face that you spent all that time on!). Prep the lids with a primer of some sort. For this look I used the Rimmel Scandaleyes Eye Shadow Stick in Witness White.
Next, take your shadow brush of choice (I prefer a firm paddle type shadow brush for this) and apply the vintage lilac shade from the Rimmel Smokey Purple Glam’eyes Quad Eye Shadow (on the left of the compact in the pic above) all over the lid. Then, taking the Rimmel Smokey Noir Glam’eyes Quad Eye Shadow use the applicator provided and apply the matte black shade deeply above the crease. Use a blending brush with more of the matte black shadow to blend out the edges.
Now my favorite part! Use the Rimmel Scandaleyes Precision Micro Eyeliner in Black to get way into the inner corners of the upper lid of the eye. Take the line the whole way out to the end. Follow up with the Rimmel Scandaleyes Thick & Thin Eyeliner to thicken the outer part of the eye and create a wing at the end. Finally, go back to the Precision Micro Eyeliner and touch-up that inner-corner and also go below the lower lid and do up some Twiggy-esque lines. This is a great way to enlarge the eyes and add to the lower lashes without using falsies.
Next I used the Rimmel Scandaleyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal in Taupe to line the lower inner rim of the eyes. On top of that I added Rimmel Soft Kohl in Pure White. Finish off your eye look by filling in your brows and adding a mascara with some KAPOW. I added three coats of Rimmel Scandaleyes Retro Glam Mascara in Carbon Black to the top and bottom lashes.
For the face I reached for Rimmel Stay Matte Liquid Mousse Foundation in my shade (which is True Ivory) and applied all over the face for full, matte coverage. Next I took Rimmel Show Off Lip Lacquer in Celestial and dabbed it lightly on the cheeks, blending quickly for just a slight hint of nude color on the cheekbones.
For the lips I lined all around the edges with Rimmel Exaggerate Full Colour Lip Liner in Innocent. I topped off the lips with Rimmel Lasting Finish by Kate Lipstick in 113.
For this look I ventured towards the extremely smoky side of “Mod”. It might be too deep for some, or just right for others. It’s simple to tone it down by using less of the black shadow and not blending it up as high.
