5 Ways to Make Your House Feel Like Home-Sweet-Home.

Ordinary Adventures

I’ve lived in a one bedroom, one bathroom apartment for the past year and a half. Over a year of that has been with Drew. As much as I love our little home, sometimes it feels a slightly cramped and way too much like a rental. Since I’ve moved in, I have taken strides to make our small apartment as homey as I can. And over the past months, I’ve discovered a few things that help make it feel like home sweet home.

1. Make the bed. Growing up, this was one of my least favorite chores. Every morning I had to make my bed, line up the pillows, and smooth out the quilt. When I moved out I stopped doing the silly tradition, but it didn’t take long for me to feel disorganized and messy. Doing something as simple as making the bed every morning makes your bedroom…

~Weekly Product Highlight~ Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge~

Looking Joli Good

Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge

This sponge is amazing even for full coverage foundation. It hides blemishes much better than a brush giving a more natural skin like finish.  The flat side is really good for stippling foundation, allowing you to build up more coverage where you need it and get rid of excess foundation where you don’t. The pointy side is great for application of makeup under the eye area.  The sponge can also be used to blend in liquid highlighter and cream blushes.

While you can use it damp or dry, I suggest that you definitely use it damp!  When damp, it makes application easy and gives a flawless look.  To dampen it, hold under running water and squeeze it until it has almost doubled in size.  Once the desired size is reached squeeze it out extra hard to remove all the excess water.

Pros:
The price is great!…

WATERCOURSE

The Raven's Nest

STATUE BY Linda Bergkvist PHOTOGRAPH BY A.D. STATUE BY Linda Bergkvist
PHOTOGRAPH BY A.D.

Listen now to the wind, babe
Listen now to the rain
Feel that water lickin’ at my feet again
I don’t wanna see this town no more
Wastin’ my days on a factory floor
First thing you know I’ll be back in Bow River again

Anytime you want babe, you can come around
But only six days separates me and the great Top End
I been working hard, twelve hours a day
And the money I saved won’t buy my youth again
I’m goin’ for the heat babe, and the tropical rain
In a place where no man’s puttin’ on the dog for me
I’m waitin’ on the weekend, set o’ brand new tyres
And back in Bow River’s just where I want to be

Listen now to the wind, babe
Listen now to the rain
Feel that water lickin’ at my feet…
