Decorating Your Home on the Fly
It seems impossible to manage our busy schedules, our family’s busy schedules, and keep our homes looking nice and up to date. Decorating your home can be an overwhelming thought, especially if you have let the décor become outdated and worn out beyond repair. Decorating can be an expensive project, and the cost alone can keep you from even toying with the idea of updating your home décor. If this describes your situation, you don’t have to fret anymore! Here are some tips on how to update your home décor style fast, easily and on a budget.
Unique artwork displays
Whether you are a parent, an art collector, or both, you definitely have artwork to display – even if it is a creation from your 4-year-old’s mind. Instead of taping artwork to doors, mirrors, or sticking them to the fridge, an easy and affordable way to give your home some style is to frame the artwork and hang them in unique collections throughout the home, or even in just one room. Window frames are a fun and eye-catching way to display artwork of your choice, not to mention they can be found for pretty low prices at stores like Walmart or Target.
Easy DIY décor projects
If the term “DIY” scares you because you don’t have a creative bone in your body, put that fear aside and spend some time researching the Internet for easy do-it-yourself projects that even you can complete. You will be surprised how simple it is to make roman shades, jewelry displays, stenciled trays and table centerpieces. You can find several examples of these DIY projects on the Better Homes and Gardens website.
Using furniture as décor
Got a picky teenager on your hands? Instead of trying to convince your teenagers to decorate their rooms – just in case guests need a place to stay – use furniture as the décor. Projects such as hanging cube shelves next to the bed to act as a nightstand instead of actually purchasing a nightstand is a great way to give a teenager’s room a decorated feel while allowing them to make their rooms their own. If your furniture is looking drab, spruce it up by reupholstering or painting it to match the décor of the room it is placed in – or not because mixing and matching is also trendy!
Wallpaper or paint
Many homeowners thing wallpaper is outdated, but boy are they wrong. Unique wallpaper on only one wall of a room gives a home character. If you are still unsure about wallpaper, consider unique painting styles such as different hues of a color in one room, or even stamping a wall. Wall stamping gives the illusion of wallpaper, and it is much easier to cover up when styles change. Bright colored décor next to neutral colored walls is currently a trend, and you can’t go wrong using neutral tones because they are classic and timeless. If you aren’t big on painting, always go classic.

Please share which publication released the latest paraben research.
The absolute most valid research on parabens just came out. They are more dangerous than we thought, especially because they mix with other chemicals to enhance the estrogenic effects. The teprenone she is putting in her Fountain of Youth line is an ulcer medication and is dangerous with no research showing it works on skin. While she does have some good ingredients, the false claims with no scientific proof are not worth the risks. If someone says they don’t mind parabens because they don’t want bacteria in their creams, then how come so many other companies are ditching the parabens and they still have good products? That is not a valid argument.
I went ahead and ordered. I didn’t auto ship just in case I didn’t like the products.
So, I was watching earlier, and Linda said that she’s never had work done. I don’t know how she can say that. She has those pulls on the side of her mouth. I think she looks great, but I don’t understand why they deny having any work done. The lady is 74 years old. Certainly we’re not going to hold it against her if she says she’s had some work done in the past.
I was wondering same thing. While Im not obsessed with the paraben controversy and I also dont take the word of any single "expert"who also sells skincare as my only resource… I do sometimes opt for the benefits of the preservatives but am going more natural as of lately for a change….. just a personal thing. I also see there is a few products in the TS with the additional load of Urea, PEGs, Polyethelene Glycol. Butalene Glycol, Alcohol, Dimethicone,(silicone) along with the several parabens. Is all that really necessary I wonder?? Oven cleaner has PEG too…..I have not decided on trying yet but I want to LOL. Ultimately is up to the consumer to decide what they want to use and what they do not accept. .. I dont peronally mind a few parabens but the rest? Im not 100% sure. I do want to try this line as it sounds good. Sigh I am not sure yet LOL. Up to the individual as HSN does list the ingrediant deck. Is not just the parabens to research….is the other stuff too.
According to the American Cancer Society, "studies have not shown any direct link between parabens and any health problems, including breast cancer."
I would rather have parabens in my products than bacteria. Parabens have stood the test of time as a preservative.
I used to worry about that as well but then I visited the Paula’s Choice website and did a little reading there. She gathers all of the current information about chemicals that are in cosmetics (hence her name "cosmetics cop") and she puts all of that information there on her website for all to read.
Look up "Parabens are they really a problem" there and read what she has found. Then decide what you think.
Off subject a little…
I also worried about the sulfates that go into the shampoos that we buy and almost went on board with the rest of the trendy thinking and thought for a while that I needed to never use sulfates in anything. Well, that is not correct either. So, sometimes the nature inspired folks are NOT right.
🙂 Go with the reasearch, not the trends.
