Nivea #SharetheSensation Challenge & Giveaway

Valentine’s Day brought the delivery of a dozen roses from my sweetheart, but also the delivery of a challenge from Nivea. They asked me to switch out my usual lotion and try out their Smooth Sensation lotion for 7 days. “If they want to tackle my winter skin” I thought, “bring it on!”

Winter for me means spiky dry legs. I’m being oh so real here. I am known to shave only once a week and with no sun on them for months my poor gams are as white and dry as the desert we live in. No one knows right, I wear pants all the time. Ya, no one knows except for my husband who gets to share sleeping quarters. Poor guy. I even whine to him about how itchy my legs get from not seeing the sun in months.

So I tried the lotion and you know what. It was great. I even shaved my legs multiple times this week. Impressive right?! My skin was smoother, my legs didn’t itch and my feet saw a vast improvement. I even noticed how awful our new sheets are (I bought cheap ones because the color was right, but everything else is oh so wrong.) because my feet were so much more sensitive lacking the layer of dry ugliness. I’m rather pleased with the whole experiment and well, so is the hubs! He is all smiles. I even got a foot rub! Woot woo!

Custom Desk Pad

Hi Friends, this is Aly from Entirely Eventful Day.  I am so excited to be part of the A Little Tipsy Creative Team.  I have a really fun, easy, and inexpensive project for you today: How to make a DIY custom mouse pad.

This beauty cost me about $8 to make and it makes the biggest difference in my office.  My favorite thing about it is when I get tired of the pattern all I need to buy is a new roll of wrapping paper!

Start with a transparent desk pad.  I used this one from IKEA.
Here’s how I did it.  
1. I sprayed the bottom of the pad with Elmer’s Glue Brand spray adhesive.
2. Then I positioned the pad sticky side up on the ground and rolled the wrapping paper over it.  I made sure to line up the bottom edges for a nice straight line.

3. Next I cut off the roll part of the wrapping paper and flipped the mat over.

4. All that was left to do was to trim around the edges of the mat.  All done!

Note: You might need to add a little more spray adhesive to the corners once you have trimmed.  

I hope you make one of these for yourself.  Mine makes me so happy!  Until next time.
