Happy Friday! I got up and met my friend at the gym this morning, did the dishes, cleaned the kitchen all before getting the girls fed and clothed and off to school on time. That pretty much never happens and I’m feeling kind of on top of things. I thought I would let that spill over onto today’s post and tackle a lot of questions, sales and basically a huge post of all the lose ends I’ve been meaning to tie up. I even made it to the grocery store and am planning on cooking tonight. To see the recipe I’m eyeing head on over to my Facebook Page! Also on my facebook page is the link to this makeup tutorial I recorded last week on instastories!

How did you style your bookshelves? Not very well but I got a lot of inspiration from this pinterest board!
What Patagonia are you wearing in stories? It’s this one and I wear it pretty much daily!
Can you share your slime recipe? Yes!
3 Step DIY Slime
Ingredients: 1 cup Elmer’s Glue (white or clear), 1/2 cup Shaving Cream, 1 tsp Baking Soda, 1 tsp Contact Solution, Food coloring and/or Glitter.
Step 1: Mix 1 cup of glue (or one container of Elmers since it’s like 7.6oz), 1/2 cup of shaving cream, 1 tsp of baking soda in a bowl.
Step 2: Add in food coloring until it’s the shade you want (or glitter if you are brave).
Step 3: Add in 1 tsp of contact solution and stir. You HAVE to add the contact solution at the end because it is what triggers the slime to form. It should start to get sticky and turn into slime within 30 seconds. Once it becomes difficult to stir due to stickiness then you get it out with your hands and knead until the slime is complete. If it is still too sticky after 3 minutes put it back in the bowl with a tiny squirt of contact solution and knead some more.
*Make sure your kids don’t have on clothes bc you’re never getting it out when it gets on their shirt.
*If you want unicorn slime like in the photo then use white slime like the photos below. Only use one drop of food coloring because if you use any more it won’t bind to the slime or mix into the slime and it will get everywhere!
I did a huge instagram roundup earlier this week and even though I have this page, some of you still like to get them via posts. A lot of you who get my posts by email like this format so you can shop directly from your inbox. I’ve decided to recap instagrams as frequently as possible on here and my goal is to do them every Friday. If you ever need to shop something in a pinch though you can go to this page.
