The Enchanted Home Love 2017 Contest is on!

Hello! I am posting this contest one day early in light of the monster snow storm heading our way, if the internet goes out (very likely) it will throw off the entire contest. So today is round 1 and tomorrow round 2 is already scheduled. So much for thinking spring had arrived when I was in the city the other day, enjoying a gorgeous 60 degree day!!

Moving along to subjects that I can get excited about, The Enchanted Home Love contest is on!! I am  just wowed by how stunning everyone’s homes are and think you will be too. This post is all about featuring an item purchased from my shop, boy does these do my shop proud! Thanks to all who sent in their beautiful pictures and to everyone else for stopping in and voting.

Today marks round one which will end tomorrow morning, then round 2 will take place tomorrow. You can now vote for your top three. Don’t see your picture here, then that means it is in round 2. Finally a showdown round will happen on  Wed and then a winner will be announced on Thursday. So ready to begin? You just might want to get a pencil and paper handy, just in case:)

Can we talk car essentials….

Hi there, so happy it’s Friday! OK I am sure you are wondering what the heck I am talking about. Well, this is a very…… let’s say practical post! This is all about what every car should have it in, always. No exceptions. With some of these things I found out the hard way:)

So…here is my list of what every car should have at all times, I cannot wait to hear your say on the matter and what you think of as essentials for the road so I can add to my “arsenal” of staples in my own car.? Here are mine…..

?OB-car

 

1. PAPER TOWELS. I could lose count counting the ways these are a must have. Something so simple, yet I have had many? instances where there were none and I would have killed for a roll of paper towels, think spilled coffee, soda, kids eating peaches, etc……

2. CASE OF WATER BOTTLES. Because hey you never know. It is always smart to have a half or full case of water bottles in the back. Haven’t you ever been dying of thirst and you are on the run, rushing around with not a minute to spared and would just love a bottle of water? Yes, me too. So now I don’t leave home without them.

3. A NAIL CLIPPER. You heard right. I hate when I get a broken nail (I keep my nails quite short) or even worse, ? you get a bad hangnail…..where are those little nail clippers when you need them! I once again have learned through experience….just the other day in fact.

4. WET ONES/WIPES- So important. Great for wiping down the car, the seats, dirty hands, if you are eating on the run, they really come in handy. A simple little must have.

5. A FEW PLASTIC BAGS. These are essentials for everything from wet bathing suits, to cleaning out the car (all those tiny little papers and wrappers that multiply over night) for garbage or anything that needs to be tidied up. Plastic bags to the rescue!

6. ALMONDS OR NON PERISHABLE SNACKS. SO vital. I will never forget while I was? living in NYC and was pregnant had my mom visiting, we had been to Long Island and we hit the traffic jam of all traffic jams heading back to the city. We were stuck behind the tunnel and literally were not moving for HOURS. I was famished, as most pregnant woman are 24/7 and just dying for something to eat. I remember desperately searching my car for any left over party favors from my kids ,any dropped nibble would have done. So now…..I always keep a little stash of almonds, gummy bears, a cereal bar, anything that has a good shelf life..because hey you never know!

7. AN UMBRELLA.? How many times have you been out and about and it starts raining and you realize you don’t have an umbrella? Well it’s happened to me too many times to be honest so now I have a car umbrella which is a permanent fixture in my trunk. It is not allowed to leave, EVER? except to protect me in the rain then it goes right back in the trunk!

8. AN ICE SCRAPER.? Trust me for anyone in the northeast this would be first on their list.? With the winter we have had, you need this as much as you need the air that you breath. No car should be without. Period!

9. PEN AND PAPER. I am perpetual, habitual note taker. I write everything down. Whether it’s hearing about something amazing on the radio or seeing the name of a new restaurant that I want to try, hearing about a new book,etc….you always need a little pad and paper for those things you just “need to know”.

So there is my list. Now it’s your turn to talk…..what are your staples for the car?? I think for as much time as I spend in mine, most of these things I have learned the value of having the hard way….by not having them when I needed them!

Thank you for stopping in, I hope you have a fabulous Friday and a wonderful end to your week.
