I am so excited to (finally) finish this faux fireplace tutorial for yall. This project is simple, and it’s not fancy. I love it because it is a basic, cheap DIY that you can easily take and mold to your own style. I keep our home decorated fairly clean and simple. I like a lot of straight lines, which ends up meaning that things are often easy to build. Things are also often easy to build because I am NOT a master DIY-er or handywoman (and neither is my husband). I am going to share with you how we did it. Disclaimer: I am sure there are more “official” or “proper” ways of doing it. But that brings me back to my previous statement. I am not a master. This way worked great for us! This is for anyone else out there who wants to DIY, but needs to keep it easy!
Fun fact: We spend an average of 122 days a year sleeping. That’s ONE THIRD of our life. What. Mind is kinda blown. With that said, sleep hygiene is so important. A couple of years ago, I started sleeping terribly. I wouldn’t have trouble falling asleep, but I just could not stay asleep. Once that started happening, I had to trial and error so. many. things. to help me get rest! Tried melatonin — didn’t work. Tried white noise — didn’t work. But today I’m going to share with you what did work AND where to get sheets that help you sleep better. Cheers to that. Click below to see more!
Y’all asked for Christmas gift ideas for the men in your life and Ben (my husband) put together what is either on his list OR things he has and loves. There are 25 gifts and an additional 7 stocking stuffer ideas in here. I hope that these make your gift searching a little easier — and you can thank Ben if it does!
Sometimes gift-giving stresses me out. Because let’s be honest, a good gift can leave a big—and lasting—impression on its recipient. That’s why knowing how to give a great gift is a skill that we can all stand to benefit from! Especially around the holidays. One of my favorite gifting hacks are the one, the only, gift baskets/gift boxes! Maybe it’s that little bit of OCD I have in me, but I love coming up with a theme and curating a little box of things I know someone will love. Today, I am on the blog with Tuesday Morning sharing how to create a beautiful gift box WITHOUT breaking the bank! Each of these boxes contain name-brand, high quality items at a fraction of the cost. To be specific, each basket cost under $25 for everything inside. Do you like great deals without sacrificing quality? You came to the right party. Click below to see!
It’s currently low 60’s here and I have seen some leaves starting to change. What. The. Actual. Heck. I seriously can’t believe Summer is basically over and Fall is coming. I mean, Fall is my favorite season, but Summer in Coeur d’Alene (where I live) is absolute magic and I can’t believe how fast it blew by.
Today, I am going to share with y’all some Fall sweaters I have either purchased or have on my wish list! Everything is under $40, and a lot of them are Amazon Prime. I am also including my go-to protein smoothie recipe for Fall. I legit start having it for breakfast once it’s acceptable to start adding pumpkin to allll the foods. Which I think that time is new. This smoothie will satisfy your pumpkin tooth without packing on the added sugars and empty calories. Click below to read more!
As if being a mom isn’t busy enough… now we are supposed to work in time for “self-care.” What the what!? Sometimes I barely have time to shower, let alone meditate with a diffuser for an hour & have a spa day.
But you guys. Wh
I am going to share with you five self-care tips that work for me, in hopes that some of them may work for you. They’re simple. They’re small. They’re not fancy. But they are all DOABLE. And they all take less than 30 minutes and can be done from home.
If you follow me on Instagram (@everydaykacie), you may or may not have caught on that I am a liiiittle obsessed with Amazon fashion lately. I mean… I don’t have to go to a store to try it on, it’s affordable, great return policy, and there are already a bunch of reviews that answer any question I could have–from size references to length to quality. On this blog post, I am going to share my current Amazon Fashion favorites. Almost everything linked I own; and if I linked it but it’s not pictured, I don’t own it, but it’s “saved for later” in my cart and already passed my “does it have good reviews?” test! If you have any questions, always ask! 🙂 Hope you enjoy.

YAY! Ya’ll. It’s Saturday. Happy Saturday to those of you who are off. I work this weekend, but I am still excited for all of you that don’t! I recently have gotten a lot of requests for more recipes, healthy food ideas, etc etc. So this morning, I thought I’d share with you my go-to healthy breakfasts. Now, I am not a nutritionist or a dietitian or fitness coach or anything along those lines. I am just a mama who tries her best to start the day off with something nourishing and yummy. And this is what I have found works for my body. I am a creature of habit in the morning, so 99% of the time, I have one of these three things for breakfast. I love them that much.
Hi all! Currently sitting in my pajamas with an “I-work-night-shift” hangover. Two weeks until day shift and I can’t wait. Recently, I have been getting a lot of questions about how to grow your Instagram account. Like so many that I put out a poll in my Insta stories to see if you guys wanted to see a blog post about it. And the overwhelming answer was a YES. Now, I don’t have hundreds of thousands of followers and I just started really doing thing Instagram thing in October, but I will definitely share with y’all what I have found that works and what I have found that did not work! Keep in mind, what works for me might not work for you 100%, but I sure hope it does and that you are able to walk away from this blog post with a little bit of insight into how to grow!
