8 inches of snow predicted today- I kinda regret not putting my winter tires on my bike.

 USB Flower Pot- charging station for all your gadgets!

Animal Cord Wraps- I just wrapped my cords with pipe cleaners to tame the chaos. These are cooler!

TGIF!: The Revillos - Rev-Up


 I have been fighting with Martha Stewarts' magazine company for over 2 weeks. When I renewed my subscription I was given a free gift subscription for a friend. I also had a 10% off coupon for my subscription. When I looked at my credit card statement, they didn't give me the 10% off and then I got a bill for my gift subscription. I sent emails to explain and got back ones saying that I was wrong. So I finally said cancel my subscription and credit me my money for subscription for 2012- they said they would. I feel like they make it so difficult so people will just give in and pay it. Now I get to tell my friend that she's not getting the magazine- it makes me look cheap, like she's not worth the $27. Keep your pretty picture magazine, with your too complex recipes and useless tips. Your greed has ruined our relationship.


 Recycle your computer- you can order a kit at Macquarium. Neato!

Fish tanks look so pretty when they're clean and so bad when they are dirty.

 I tidy up for a living. It's what I do and I love it. I provide clarity and increase productivity for others. Today I am dealing with a bathroom that looks like this- the best way to tackle it is to take everything off and designate homes for everything.

Birch & Bird Vintage Home Interiors

 Liy and Rachel opened an etsy store called Birch and Bird. They turned their passion for thrifting, simple living, and great design into a thriving business. These are pictures of Lilys' home- it's a revolving door of vintage treasures!

This is how I decorate- mixed patterns, texture, and color. I love it!

 I went to their shop on etsy and bought this metal tray that is going to hang in my bathroom. I have recently developed an online shopping addiction- I'll stop as soon as I have everything I want.

 Granny chic christmas wrap- I know it's too soon! The holiday commercials are already driving me crazy.

Fashionable Footwear

Merrell Wilderness Remix Boots
This is my version of stylish bike footwear. Merrell boots are the most comfortable boots I've ever worn- I get a new pair every year. These are my options this season. The Wilderness Remix boot has a removable down leg warmer that you can use in other boots. A down leg warmer? Gimme!

Merrell Martina Boots
 Espresso, Boulder, or Black- the worst part of this boot is picking which color- I want them all!

High Heel Clipless Bike Shoes

 I saw these hand made wooden bike shoes on

 Side view is nice but that's about it- why is it so difficult to find stylish bike shoes that aren't sporty?

 Do these look comfortable to you? Sorry, but comfort is key- nice workshop project though.
