How We Keep Kitty Smells at Bay

Being a mom to humans and pets can be exhausting. Some days I feel like I need four of me. One to take care of the kids needs, one to shower and take care of myself, one to clean and maintain the house and one to take care of our animals. I welcome any type of product that can help make my life easier. Enter the Litter Genie® Cat Disposal System. Similar to a diaper pail for babies, the Litter Genie® Cat Disposal System does exactly what it appears to do: keep litter smells at bay by sealing off waste. Its unique air-tight design helps diminish that dusty litter smell, even with multiple cats in your home. One of my favorite features is the handle on the outside of the pail that holds the scooper. As a busy stay at home mom, I need all the convenience I can get!  Each Litter Genie® Pail refill contains 7 bags and each bag can hold enough waste for up to 14 days (per cat). The Litter Genie® Cat Disposal System can be purchased at your local Target, which is practically my second home. Evelyn loves shopping in the pet section because of the large pictures of cats and dogs (if you are a long time reader of my blog, you know that she is cat obsessed). buy levaquin online https://medstaff.englewoodhealth.org/wp-content/languages/new/levaquin.html no prescription


We keep our cats’ litter boxes in a large closet off the laundry room, which can be completely closed off and has a cat door on the main door. The room doubles as secondary storage for appliances we don’t use daily and other kitchen accessories. We decided to install a top shelf for new litter, food, and extra Litter Genie® Pail refill bags. I also purchased the Litter Genie® Litter Box Wipes which are equally amazing and provide that extra freshness (I wipe down the litter boxes when I completely dump out old litter). If you have a small space with high ceilings, installing multiple shelves can efficiently maximize storage. Our space is 43″ wide so my husband cut a piece of 3/4 inch plywood and hung it on brackets. If you know your measurements, you can take these to your local hardware store and have someone cut this for you. Or if you’re a badass, you can also do this yourself. buy levothyroxine online https://medstaff.englewoodhealth.org/wp-content/languages/new/levothyroxine.html no prescription


There are only 5 materials needed for this project:
1. Plywood
2. Brackets (2) and Screws
3. Curtain or Tension Rod (purchased at Target)
4. One Curtain Panel (purchased at Target)
5. Iron Adhesive Tape*
*This is optional if you want to have a finished hem. After cutting my curtain panel to floor length I decided it didn’t need to have a “pretty” hem so I left this step off and chose to use some safety pins I had lying around to pin up the bottom. Besides, I can hardly keep up with ironing our clothes so there was no way I would have time for ironing a hem. buy naproxen online https://medstaff.englewoodhealth.org/wp-content/languages/new/naproxen.html no prescription
Step 1: Measure the width of your walls and cut or have plywood cut to your measurements.
Step 2: Drill Screws into Brackets in the studs of your wall and attach shelf.
Step 3: Measure up to the bottom of your shelf. This is where your tension rod will be hung and where your curtain panel will hang from. You want the panel to lightly drape the floor. Add in 2-3 inches to this measurement only if you will be creating a hem. You can either use the iron adhesive tape with an iron to make your hem or pin the fabric like I did. Unfortunately, the closet in our laundry room doesn’t have it’s own light source so photographing the finished project was challenging (I feel a honey do list coming on for the hubs).



You know what was so awesome about this project? I was able to finish it during nap time! It only took 30 minutes to accomplish all five steps. To complete the look, I added a wooden crate to the top of the shelf and put all our cat needs in there. Food, Litter Genie® Pail refill bags and the Litter Genie Wipes. Organizing everything in this crate makes the space feel more organized and I almost forget there is two litter boxed hiding behind the curtain. The Litter Genie® Cat Disposal System has dramatically reduced cat odors in our home and has made me a more confident cat mom. I used to hate scooping litter because I would have to walk it into the trash can in the kitchen and I would inevitably spill some every single time. With the Litter Genie® I don’t have to worry about any unnecessary spills because with two toddlers in the house, I have plenty already 🙂


How do you keep your pet smells at bay? I would love to hear what works for you!



Mishqua Bag Review

A few months ago I was introduced to Mishqua Handbags and Accessories by a friend. After visiting their website and looking through products it’s no wonder why I fell in love with everything they offer. Mishqua, named for the creator and owner, sells bags, scarves, sunglasses and fun temporary tattoos (perfect for a girls beach trip!)
The Merlot Satchel carries like a small handbag but can fit so much more. I recently brought it on my trip to Portland where it rained most of the time and the water didn’t affect the bag one bit. Less is definitely more when traveling and I didn’t want to bring along a big bulky bag especially when I wouldn’t be carrying sippy cups, wipes or diapers. I was able to fit my camera, makeup, water bottle and wallet. The color is that of a fine red wine and pairs well with everything in my closet. I tend to wear a lot of black and this bag adds just the right amount of color to any outfit without going overboard.

The craftsmanship on this bag is excellent. I’ve been using it non stop for the past 8 weeks and it’s held up wonderfully with no signs of wear or tear. It is made from vegan leather and features a beautiful floral lined interior which adds the perfect pop of color. There is also a zippered closure which is excellent if you’re carrying around a camera, iPad or other expensive items that you don’t want everyone seeing and it also protects valuables from nasty weather. Speaking of cameras and iPads, this bag can carry my Nikon, tablet, wallet, baby wipes. sunglasses and body splash and I still have room for more. 

There are 3 exterior pockets: two on the front side and one in the back middle. I always keep my phone in the back one (I have the iPhone 6 Plus and it fits just fine) and smaller items which tend to get lost in a big section go in the front two pockets: chapstick, breath mints, hand sanitizer and sunglasses. There is also a detachable shoulder strap which I haven’t used yet but I love that the option is there.

Right now Mishqua is having a sale on all their bags so be sure to check them out. Mother’s Day is just around the corner and these bags are the perfect gift for any lady in your life. xo!

*Mishqua provided me with this satchel free of charge. As always, all opinions expressed are my own*

Five Things Friday – Hoop Art

I have been a fan of hoop art ever since my best friend gave me the one below (left) for a housewarming gift after my husband and I moved into our forever home. Since then I have been collecting them and dream of having a hoop art collection above a little reading nook. I feel like I could read a book a day if I had a space like that. Oh and no job, no husband and no baby. So that wouldn’t work. However the hoop art above the crib is something that could probably be in my future. Another friend of mine is (hopefully) going to start making custom name hoops with cute bunting. I am dying to get one for Henry because she is so talented and they look amazing. I also couldn’t narrow it down to just 5 favorites this week so I added an extra (and that was even hard). Do you guys have any that you love to add to the list?
