I love when it is summer time and I can spend the day going to garage sales and seeing what I can find. I consider my self a bargain mom where I like to find thing and fix them up. I love buying old pieces of furniture and fixing them up. I love to refurnish tables and dressers.
I recently came across a company called The Real Milk Paint. The inspiration behind The Real Milk Paint is that he wanted to paint his wardrobe that was made out of pine. He wanted to make milk paint from scratch to paint it. He told his wife about his idea and she thought he was nuts. To start this new adventure he bought old formula books for furniture finishing. When he came across the formulas they tend to have some strange materials in them. He searched and researched until he found the perfect formula. The paint is dry powdered Real Milk Paint.
I received two packages of Real Milk Paint for review. The two colors that I received were Terra Cotta and Yellow Rose. Real Milk Paint has a variety of colors that you can choose from. The paint comes in small packages which is very nice. What I also like about this paint it's easy to mix. You just add water. Each bag that I received 2 1/2 cups of powdered milk paint. When you choose to mix your paint you want to mix it in a glass or plastic container 2 times larger than needed. This will allow you to mix and not make a mess. To mix 1 quart you want to add 2 1/2 cups of water to the entire contents. Stir the paint for one minute. Make sure there is nothing stuck to the bottom. Let the paint stand for 20 minutes and stir occasion. When you want to paint the surface you want to make sure it is clean. The surface must be free of contamination, wax, grease, or oils.
When I start a project I hate preparing paint or fussing with paint. With Real Milk Paint I felt like it was easy to mix the paint without a huge fuss. The instructions were to the point and helpful. I like the consistency of the paint and it went well on the old table that I had in my house. It dried pretty quickly also. I would highly recommend Real Milk Paint for your next project.

I am a fan of Jewelry, but majority of the time I can not wear jewelry due to the fact that I break out. Although I still find my self trying to find the perfect jewelry that I am able to wear and will not break out. I came across a site called Blue Steel. Blue Steel offers a wide selection of rings, necklaces, bracelets, earrings and pendants. I have to say when I was browsing Blue Steel's site I will say there was a lot of items that struck my eye. Their products are made with the finest 3161 stainless steel. By using this kind of steel can ensure that your favorite piece of jewelry from Blue Steel will last for many years.

Also I was not expecting the shipping to be super fast. I was very excited when it arrived in…
The Trigger Fragrance (deverb) Collection
was developed to encourage everyday people to seek out a way to feel
more attractive, alluring, and irresistible to others. Unlike regular
fragrances, the Trigger Fragrances contains pheromones, a natural
sex attracting chemicals emitted from our body that releases
neurotransmitters around us as an odorless chemical compound undetected
by our senses. The Trigger line is taking fragrances to the next
level. Then name was inspired by the chemical connection that
stimulates a response, and or physical reaction from the another
individual. I’ve been using this items myself off and on for about a
year now, and honestly I get asked “what is that you’re wearing?” pretty
often. The candles are the best since they do more than just scent a
room. Use the melted soy wax as a massage cream while moisturizing your
skin. It’s great for a romantic getaway, when you want to add a little
spice, or just relax a home. One Lucky reader wil…
