How to Make All-Natural Spring Cleaning Products 0

It’s spring cleaning time at Grant Central and we’re making our own DIY natural cleaning products! Truth moment: I'm *way* more excited about the DIY part than the actual cleaning. #justsayin But, I do LOVE making my own products though because they're much so better for the environment (and way cheaper), way friendlier to my my migraine-prone senses, and of course safer for my cleaning-obsessed #miniboss than most of the commercial cleaners out there.     Each product that I'm featuring is super easy to make and requires just a few basic ingredients that you probably...

DIY Bath Salts for Galentine's Day 0

I love making soothing bath salts to give away on Galentine's Day because they are so easy to make and make such sweet gifts too (I mean what woman doesn't need a little more relaxation in her life?). Note: For those of you who don't know, Galentine's Day is the unofficial (but pretty much official) holiday celebrated on February 13th when women all over celebrate the beauty of friendship, preferably with wine involved:-). The salts are there to soothe tired muscles and release toxins, the baking soda is there to soften the water and give your...

DIY Whipped Body Butter for Dry Winter Skin 0

I started making my own body butter a few winters ago after I got of tired re-applying lotion throughout the day. Sometimes, it was literally two minutes later...yes...sigh.  I mistakenly thought that the thicker (and more expensive!) the lotion better, but those factors actually made no difference at all as far as my skin was concerned.     Finally, I decided to take matters into my own hands (literally) with an easy and effective DIY whipped body butter to the rescue! It's made with just three super-moisturizing natural ingredients, and a little bit goes a really long way. I...

BambiniWare at Home for Thanksgiving 0

Welcome to Thanksgiving at Grant Central! I love the fall season and all of the beautiful colors that it brings, so I used those colors to bring both warmth and vibrance to my rustic chic theme.  As you'll see, this year's decorations started at the front of the house with my newfound love of "porchscaping" and continued through our recently updated formal dining room, family room and kitchen.  I shopped at all of my usual spots--Pier 1 Imports, Michaels, Home Goods, JoAnn Fabric and Crafts and Crate and Barrel to complete the look. And, of course, I...

BambiniWare at Home for Easter 0

Welcome to Easter at what our family affectionately calls, "Grant Central!" This year's theme is "farmhouse chic," and it was truly a collaborative effort, as you'll see. We wanted something light and airy, a little rustic, a little fancy and child-friendly too without overdoing it with pastels and bunnies. We shopped at Pier 1 Imports, Michaels, Home Goods and VillageFest in Palm Springs, CA to achieve this look. If you read my BambiniWare at Home for Christmas post, then you know that while I love beautiful holiday decorations, I don't like spending a lot of money...
