Keep It Simple Grow | Glow Ep 3

Teeth Whitening For Sensitive Teeth

I’ve always been a bit self-conscious about my smile until recently. For one my teeth are slightly crooked on the bottom and two they aren’t a natural white color. I mean hey everyone wants white teeth right!!?  As much as I love smiling, taking pics, and posting I have my reservations. I’ve come to push past my insecurities and just smile.

Opportunities 

“Opportunities  just don’t come, they sit silently by waiting to be recognized” – Dr. Dexter Easley 

This quote rings loud in my ears when I grab hold of the opportunities around me. It just amazes me how many opportunities go unnoticed on an everyday basis. It’s up to us to grab hold of them. 

I am ever so grateful to have had the opportunity to work with various companies and bloggers. On August 18th I will be featured on Mor Ladies blog. This bog is dedicated to the boss lady in you. If you need encouragement, motivation, and empowerment then head over to the Boss Lady Blog. I am excited to see what’s to come for this great up and coming blog. Feel free to connect with us Boss Ladies on Facebook as well. 

The Boss lady in you deserve a dope network group. Don’t forget to head over to the Mor Ladies blog on August 18 where my post will be live! Thanks in advance for the love and support. I have a few more opportunities headed my way that I will be sharing with you soon. 

Cease your opportunities!

  

Doing It Yourself

Get in and get dirty. That’s what I like to do when it comes to home projects. My list of home projects just went from zero to one hundred. How crazy is that, well my husband and I just moved. So I now have a clean slate to work with and tons of Pinterest ideas that can now become reality. My first DIY project was organizing my linen closet.  For which I had a vision of using dollar tree storage bins. So here is how it all went down.

What You Will Need

  1. A closet
  2. Open space
  3. Tarp or project blanket
  4. Dollar tree plastic bins
  5. Metallic Primer in 1 Spray Paint
  6. Gloves

My Closet


I purchased 9 bins

Spray Paint I used


  


The Process

First I laid my brand new bins out on my blanket and took off all tags. I did my project in the screened porch area which worked perfectly. I had no bugs harassing me and I was able to be out in the fresh air. After taking off the tags I proceeded to spray the first coat of primer as suggested by the lowes associate (I wasn’t going to buy primer). I let that dry for about 10minutes then repeated that process. Here is where the fun begins I was able to spray my first coat of paint. Their is nothing like the anticipation that comes when doing projects. Just waiting to see how it will come out. After the first coat it didn’t look like much as you can see below……

  
So I flipped them over and went to town on the next side giving each one a good couples of coats in one spray.  Below you will see they were starting to grasp the spray and have a little metallic shine to them. However it wasn’t fully coated…..


Not only were they not fully coated but I was running out of spray, Yikes.

  


 I left them to dry and headed to my nearest Walmart where I purchased this brand……

  
This brand is the best one to use. After one coat I was jumping for joy at what my eyes beheld. This what you see below is after two coats……


Which was good enough for me.  On to organizing and setting up my closet. Most of the bins I purchased had pre-assigned jobs. 4 for hair products like shampoos, conditioners, and moisturizers. 3 for hair tools like blow dryer, flat irons, and combs.  The remaining two were to hold random items. 
Here is my final organized closest with my DIY metallic bins…..

  

The top shelves are for face towels, wash cloths, and towels. The bottom shelves with my new bins are for hair products! 😉

Portfolio

When you think of portfolio we often think of one location where we keep very important files. Many people from actors, to dancers, to even writers have portfolios. 

Do you have a portfolio? To be more specific a faith portfolio?

A portfolio filled with testimonies of what the Lord has done. As the song says

 “when I look back over my life I can truly say, I’ve got a teatimony.”

What’s your testimony? How has your faith been built? I challenge you to write them down and make note of them mentally as well. During the storm is life you can refer to your faith portfolio. 

A portfolio is always being built and edited. So allow God to edited your portfolio and build it alongs life’s journey. Not only for yourself but as a testimony to share with others this faith you cling to. 

1 Peter 3:15 NIV

[15] But in your hearts revere Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect,
