Modernize Your Home with Home Square #homemakeover #homedecor #forthehome

Spring is the time for home makeovers and updated decor. We've been on the hunt for unique furniture pieces to give our home a more modern look. While we would love to have an interior designer come in and work their magic for us, we needed a more affordable solution. Most of the furniture and department stores in our area carry items that are almost identical to each other. We want furniture with a little more individuality, which is exactly what I found when I happened upon Home Square. I wish I had known about this online store years ago. They are all-encompassing when it comes to home needs. We found a gorgeous ceramic garden stool similar to what I'd seen in other high-end stores for a fraction of the price.

Waterpik® Chrome PowerSpray+™ Dual Shower Head #homemakeover #homeupgrades

This month we are focusing on easy ways to update our home. Our bathrooms had been looking pretty tired, but we found that simply upgrading the shower head makes a big difference. It's an affordable start to modernizing the room. Forget bringing in a handyman because this is about as easy as any DIY project can get.

We chose the Waterpik® Chrome PowerSpray+ Dual Shower Head for it's sleek design and multi-spray versatility. It provides six handheld spray and one rainfall spray setting. The 2-way diverter of this Waterpik® model allows you to switch easily between the handheld and the fixed mount shower head. Both heads feature a variety of spray settings that allow the water force to be adjusted. It's like a spa experience for your home!

Father's Day Guide: Vesco Professional Hedge Shears #GardenToolCompany #lawn&garden #tools

Father's Day is a great time to replace Dad's old tools with new, high-quality tools that will make work easier. My husband and I have made this a yearly tradition after seeing the sad state most of his father's tools were in. Summer typically means lawn work, so this Father's Day, we've decided to focus on lawn and garden tools. Investing in professional grade tools is worth it in the long run. We learned this the hard way after replacing far too many less expensive, lesser quality tools that lasted only a short time. This year, we've decided to gift the Vesco Professional Hedge Shears from Garden Tool Company. Garden Tool Company is a fantastic site for ordering professional grade and heavy-use tools at an affordable price.

Mother's Day Guide: Crispy Steelux Premium Fry Pan #healthyeating #nonstick #cookware

Over the years we've learned that when it comes to cookware, quality is far more important than quantity. You'll often see a big box of pots and pans for a low price, but the set doesn't last in the long run. We upgraded to Fissler cookware at home and we love the quality so much that we're suggesting it as a high-end Mother's Day gift this holiday. The Crispy Steelux Premium Fry Pan and Universal Splatter Shield with Integrated Holder are a great place to start in building a better kitchen cookware set.

Spring is finally here and Johnny Rockets is celebrating with their new Limited Time Spring Menu! As if we needed another reason to dine in, they've spiced up their menu with some really exciting flavor combinations that we can't wait to try. Though we love the classic chicken sandwiches and fresh-made burgers at this restaurant, knowing that they are incorporating creamy avocados, crunchy bacon, flame roasted red peppers, and fresh basil, has us intrigued! And of course, we're already looking forward to the Oreo® Cookies and Cream Shake for dessert.
