cord wrangling

With so many devices in our home
we needed a way to wrangle and label all their cords.

I bought some at RuMe but you can make your own

{I couldn't find neoprene so I used vinyl}

These little cord wranglers would make great 
stocking stuffers or party favors
don't you think?

affordable mascara

I have been looking for the perfect mascara for quite awhile.
It seems like after trying new ones 
I pretty much always return to 
L'Oreal Voluminous

Lately I have combined it with 
CoverGirl Lash Blast Volume
layering them both together in several coats

Next on my list to try is 
L’Oreal Voluminous False Fiber Lashes

recommended by 

I am curious if you have a favorite mascara
that cost less than $20.
