Introducing Swash

We just got a Swash machine to try out (in our newly renovated laundry room–pictures coming soon!) It’s a brilliant little machine that allows you refresh your clothes in between dry cleaning. It’s like when you find a dress you want to wear but you realize it is a wrinkly mess and you are in a rush out the door. Enter Swash. Basically, it does 4 things: 1) de-wrinkles, 2) removes odors, 3) restores stretched fabrics, and 4) extends the life of garments. I just throw my clothes into the Swash, push a button, and 10 minutes later they look great (no more ironing or steaming!) Although it doesn’t totally replace the dry cleaner, we’ve definitely cut down on our trips. I highly recommend it! Click here to find out where you can buy one in your area.

The idea is to refresh your room in a weekend with just $1000. Our managing Editor, Alison Piepmeyer volunteered her living room for the task. Our challenge was to redo Alison’s living room with $1000. Not a small sum of money but not big enough to buy a new sofa. We just wanted to use the things she already had and update the room with a few new pieces. Let’s get started! The first step of a Room Refresh is to (continued below)

Nesting Doll Costume

This costume is one of my favorites. When I was a little girl I would play with Russian Nesting Dolls for hours. This costume gets even better if you have several girls in different sizes- ha! Don’t forget to add those bright circles on your cheeks as a finishing touch!
