Every Home has a Story to Tell

Every Home Tells a Story

This post was sponsored by Air Wick as part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central. I received complimentary products to facilitate my review.

While you may be busy starting to think of how to decorate your home for the holidays or getting an early start on your Christmas shopping – make sure you don’t forget to help out those who need the most assistance. This holiday season Air Wick is launching a new campaign; Give the Gift of Home. Their campaign includes the donation of $250,000 from their profits and that money will benefit Habitat for Humanity families.

Air Wick has created this video as a tribute to families all over the world on how the holidays (and even a scent) can bring them closer together. And the theme of moving is pretty much perfect for this time in our personal lives. Take a look for yourself:

Isn’t this a very heartwarming video? I think that Air Wick captured the exact feelings they were going for. And the idea around your own personal life scent is so true. Just like a song on the radio can bring you back to an exact moment in your life, a smell can bring you right back to a place or memory just as quickly.

Since every home can tell a story, I’m so excited to start sharing our new home with you soon! We haven’t moved in yet, but as soon as we do – I know we will be getting our new home ready for the holidays and having the right scent is always a great way to be welcomed into a house.

Decorating a home office space can be challenging. Offices are usually full of dull paperwork, utilitarian tools and electronics. The sterile decor can prevent you from being productive because the space is so uninviting that you find yourself avoiding it. Determining the right amount of gold to add to your space and how to add it can be tricky, but incorporating a luxurious metallic color like gold into your home office decor will lift your spirits and give your office space the warmth it needs.

laundry room organization ideas

Laundry Room Organization Ideas

It’s the time of year to get Christmas put away and get everything organized, as much as possible at least! Last year, my dad was able to expand out our laundry room, add some shelving, counter space, making the room larger, etc. It’s amazing what only a few extra feet in a laundry room can do. I can now finally move in there, fold laundry, sort, etc.

Having an organized laundry room is so helpful. It can be storage for so much more than just clothing. When you have children, the high storage is also great for more dangerous items such as cleaning supplies!

I have yet to get my laundry room 100% organized, but I of course, have turned to pinterest for some great ideas! Below are some of my favorite ideas as well as a few steps on how to get your laundry room organized.

How to Improve your Laundry Room

  1. Clean! Clean out your laundry room from top to bottom and start over!
  2. Reconfigure. Get your laundry room configured the way you want and do any construction that needs to happen.
  3. Plan and Organize! Once you are ready, plan out everything you want to include and then start organizing! Purchase shelving, boxes, bins, etc that you may need. Pick one color theme and go with it.
  4. Decorate. Don’t be afraid to decorate it a little bit. Picking a color other than white or adding a wall hanging, candle, etc can go a long way to make the room feel brighter and better!
