The Perfect Autumn Picnic Blanket: Fatboy Picnic Lounge

We can definitely feel the chill outside here in New Jersey but the days still have a warm sun overhead to enjoy until fall really comes down on us. It got me thinking how nice it would be to have a picnic at the park or even in the backyard especially once the leaves begin turning beautiful red, orange and golden hues.

Obviously, one of the most important aspects of having a good picnic is the food! But I was thinking of one of the fundamentals that can sometimes be overlooked – what are you having your picnic on?

I came across this wonderfully stylish and comfortable picnic blanket to lounge out on called The Fatboy Picnic Lounge – this spacious rug comes with four over-sized red pins to keep grounded (in case of a strong breeze!) and a brush to keep clean from debris and fallen leaves. It is made from weather resistant material and has a water-repellant coating. There is a convenient pocket attached to it providing space for your phone and keys. The strap allows you to easily roll it up to easily transport your picnic to anywhere you choose.

Flux Furniture: Origami You Can Sit On

 

Modern décor offers countless uniquely designed furnishings to spruce up your home or business’ interior and exterior landscape. One particular brand that caught my eye is called Flux Furniture. Flux Furniture designers Douwe Jacobs and Tom Schouten gained inspiration for their work from paper artists, however, instead of using one sheet of paper to sculpt their masterpieces, they chose to sculpt their furnishings using a single sheet of durable, weatherproof polypropylene. Additionally, Flux Furniture chairs are great for travel and can easily fold-up for storage.

Flux Furniture can be used both outdoors and indoors, making these excellent pieces for lounging around inside, gathering with friends around a bonfire or creating your own lawn seats at a concert.

6 Different Fun Fall Activites to Celebrate the Autumn Equinox

Autumn is truly my favorite time of the year. The air is crisp, the sun shines and the leaves turn a beautiful array of colors. As always, September 22nd marks the Autumn Equinox so I thought it would be nice to write about some fun fall activities to enjoy this amazing season!

1.  Bake a scrumptious apple, pumpkin or pecan pie. If you don’t enjoy baking, why not try making some delicious butternut squash soup! At the very least, drink a warm cup of spiced cider.

2.  Go apple-picking or pumpkin-picking. If you really want to have some fun, try gourd-picking! Gourds come in so many unique shapes, colors and sizes, I love seeing what I can find

3. Let your inner child shine! Go on a hayride, get lost in a corn maze or leap into a pile of leaves

4.  Dig up your old warm and cozy clothes or take a shopping trip with friends to a thrift store for comfy sweaters and flannels

5.  Make a pine cone bird feeder or collect pine cones and display them in a glass bowl

6.  Get started early on your pumpkin carving or paint on them to make some really cool fall designs!

6 Different Herbal Tea Blends to Improve Your Health & Mood

My sister recently gifted me a beautiful, glass loose tea pot for my birthday and I absolutely love it! With the pot, she included a bag of her homegrown chamomile tea and a bag of loose black chai tea. I have always been curious about the different effects of tea, but it wasn’t until yesterday night that I experienced it.

The past two weeks I have had some difficulty sleeping, a lot has been on my mind and I can’t seem to relax once my head hits the pillow…so it got me thinking…. maybe a warm glass of chamomile tea (which is supposed to produce a calming effect and is excellent for anxiety) would do the trick…and it did!  It worked so well, in fact I was sleeping like a baby by 11:00pm and I felt fully refreshed when I awoke in the morning.  It inspired me to write about 6 different teas that could offer a natural alternative to some mental and/or physical health issues you may be experiencing:

Loose Glass Tea Pot

1. Chamomile Tea / Chamomile Mixed with Lemongrass – Calms the body, relaxes the system, helps with anxiety, serves as an excellent sleep aid

2. Green Tea / Black Chai Tea – Contains a healthy dose of caffeine, promotes energy, productivity, focus, concentration, alertness and enhances work performance

(Peppermint Tea also promotes focus and energy without the caffeine).

Black Chai Tea

3. Lemon Verbena Tea / Lemon Balm Tea/ Rooibos Tea – Natural mood boosting properties, helps with the “blues,” soothes nerves, relieves tummy aches, rich in vitamin C and antioxidants

Lemon Balm Tea

Rooibos Tea

4. Ginger Tea – Excellent for digestion, can help with nausea, vomiting or an upset stomach due to motion sickness, combine with lemon juice and honey for a powerful germ fighter

Ginger Tea

5. Rosehip Tea – A perfect immune system booster, excellent source of vitamin C, vitamin A and vitamin E, produces a calming effect on the nervous system

Rosehip Tea

6. Ginseng Tea – Can help lower blood pressure and stimulate the production of serotonin which can greatly help with symptoms of depression

6 Different Ways to Reuse Old Vinyl Records

Call me old fashioned but I am still a fan of listening to vinyl records,  but these days it is certainly not as convenient as grabbing your MP3 player or iPod for music on-the-go. I have seen hundreds of vinyl records being given away for free on Craigslist or you can pick up a stack for cheap at your local thrift store. You may even have vinyl records lying around your house that are scratched, warped or unlistenable for reasons other than just damage (perhaps your musical taste has evolved!) Instead of just tossing them aside, you can reuse them for decorative or functional pieces for your home décor!  Here are a few of my favorite ways to creativity use vinyl records:

1. Canvases

You can use vinyl records as canvases to paint on. If you want a smoother surface to work with you can spray on a couple layers of primer before you paint.  I like to use acrylic paints but you can explore and experiment with different paints to get the effect you want. If you are apprehensive about painting free-hand on your vinyl canvas, you can also use a stencil. Vinyl records make cheap, effective and beautiful canvases!

2. Bowls

You can turn your old records into stylish bowls. I would choose a record you actually enjoy but might be damaged or a record with a cool label because the labels can be seen at the bottom of the bowl.  You can also double-up on the craftiness of this project and paint your vinyl first then turn it into a bowl. These vinyl bowls make great fruit bowls, catch-all trays, and containers for potted plants. You can even hang your record-bowl design as wall art.

3. Cake and Dessert Tray

Using 3 to 4 vinyl records of varying sizes or the same sizes, you can create your own musical dessert tray. This is a great idea for themed parties or to simply show off your amazing crafty side!

4. Side Table

You can easily create a sturdy vinyl record side table. All you need to do is hot glue the vinyl record (the top of the side table) to a plant stand (the base of the side table) and VOILA! You can enjoy your newly vintage vinyl table!

5. Earring Holder

Use a vinyl record to make a stylish earring holder by heating a metal skewer and poking it through the vinyl record. This earring holder is a great way to beautifully display your earrings as well as keep them organized. No more tangled messes!

6. Wall Art

You can cut interesting and fun shapes out of vinyl records and hang them throughout your home as art installations or 3D wall decals. Vinyl record wall art makes great conversation starters and adds a touch of edgy design to your home.
