Amazing DIY Tips Every Homeowner Needs To Know

Here’s a fun little post for all of my DIY-ers, Pinterest royalty, and crafting gods! As for me? I’ll stick to my handyman! 😉

Amazing DIY Tips Every Homeowner Needs To Know:

As a homeowner, you may have considered doing the odd couple of DIY projects. Even if you aren’t a very crafty person, you may have been swayed to dabble with some DIY just because it can be a major money saver! The world is your oyster in the world of DIY. You could simply fix some old furniture that needs repairing. Or you might have bought some shelves that need putting up. Once you get super confident in your DIY skills, you may even start to make your own furniture! However you want to use DIY in your home, here are some tips that can help you do a great job every time!

Invest In Top Quality Equipment: If you want to do a really good job in all of your DIY projects and tasks, you will need excellent equipment. This means that you might have to pay a bit more to get the best tools out there in the shops. It may be slightly expensive, but it will certainly be worth it! The better quality tools and equipment will also last for a lot longer compared to cheaper ones. Not sure which tools are the best to buy? See here for great benchtop bandsaw reviews. You’ll find plenty more reviews for other tools online.

Keep Your Old CDs: You may just stream your music online these days but that isn’t an excuse to throw out all of your old CDs. In fact, you should keep them and use them in your home decorating. You can break up the CDs themselves and create cool murals with them. These funky murals can be used throughout your home but will look especially good in a room that gets a lot of attention as a great conversation starter. Got a whole load of old CDs? Repurpose them as some dumbbells to use in your workouts! 😉

Sketch Out Plans: No matter what your latest DIY project may be, you should always sketch out a brief plan. This can help you envisage the finished result or product. The sketch doesn’t have to be too detailed or artistic. Just as long as it gives you a clear idea of how you plan on using all the materials. If you are simply redecorating a room, sketching can come in handy, too. This will give you a chance to carefully consider the use of space and lighting so neither affects your design too much.

Hang At The Right Height: Do you have some photographs or paintings that you want to hang on your walls? Then you need to make sure that these are hung at the right height. Otherwise, they might look odd compared to the rest of your decor. Ideally, the center of each piece needs to be at eye level. This is usually around sixty inches above the ground. If the ceilings in a room are particularly high, you can afford to hang your artworks slightly higher.

DIY should never be too tasking. And all of these tips should make it even easier! You may never have to hire a handyman to do your household jobs again!

Adore Me Inspired Lingerie Flat Lay

Hi everyone and happy weekend! I hope all of you had a great week and are ready for some fun or R&R – I know I am! If there’s one thing that a Lil Red loves, it’s lingerie. There is nothing better than sporting a sexy little outfit or a hoodie and a pair of sweats and knowing that you have something pretty on underneath. If you are like me and are always looking for the best looks for an amazing deal then you have got to check out the selection of bras and panties that Adore Me has to offer. Their lingerie is seriously gorgeous and they also have a beautiful selection of plus sizes to choose from, too.

After treating yourself to a new set of lingerie from Adore Me, make sure you check out their Pinterest page and give them a follow! Now, on to my Adore Me Inspired Lingerie Flat Lay:

My lingerie flat lay was inspired by my days when I work on my summer classes from home. My homework days are filled with reading about everything from Shakespeare to Psychology so there are a few essentials that are a must to make the day not completely miserable:

  1. COFFEE, coffee, and did I say coffee?
  2. An adorable bra and panty.
  3. My new glasses.

Okay, so coffee is self explanatory but what about the glasses and lingerie? I’m so glad you asked! When I work from home, I would never be caught dead in anything but a pair of sweats and my boyfriend’s hoodie. My homework days are a no makeup and no contacts day, as well…Hence my new specs! Because I am rocking a look that I do not feel my best in, a pretty set of lingerie is a friendly reminder that I’m still a stunner and a sass machine. Cute bras and underoos on my “bumming it” days is my way of keeping my self-esteem at a perfect ten even when I look like I just rolled out of bed!

So there you have it, my Adore Me Inspired Lingerie Flat Lay! Once again, please make sure to check out the Adore Me Pinterest page and do some shopping on the links provided above! When it comes to lingerie are you a mixer or a matcher? Do you have a bra or panty that you consider “lucky”? I want to hear from all of you, so leave me a comment and let’s chat! Much love. -Sarah

Follow/Like Me! (Please?!)

Hey everyone and happy Tuesday! This is your friendly reminder post to show your favorite redhead some Facebook lovin! I have reached the 5,000 friend mark on the ol’ FB but that doesn’t mean you can’t give your girl a follow! A follow is pretty much like being friends with me without really being friends with me. You’ll still get to see all of my status updates and pictures on your newsfeed without having me on your friends list. I personally think that this is still a win/win for everyone!

You can reach out to me on my personal Facebook page and a like on my page for lifewithlilred wouldn’t hurt either! And as always, please help me get paid by clicking the ads from Twistfire Media on my personal Facebook! I have lots of fun articles, quizzes, and facts posted so check them out, have a laugh, and help me put some moolah in my bank! Once again, it’s a win/win! If you are interested in posting for Twistfire on your Facebook, Twitter, or Pinterest please feel free to email me at: sarah.mush6794@gmail.com!

Sign Up For Twistfire Media!!

Sign Up For Twistfire Media!!

Heyyy everyone and happy Tuesday! My second month of posting for Twistfire Media is coming to an end and once again it did not disappoint. For those of you who don’t know, Twistfire Media is an advertising company that you can post for on your Facebook, Twitter, or Pinterest. You get paid per click when you post an ad and it’s a great way to make a few extra bucks per month. Why wouldn’t you want to get paid to use social media?!

The ads that you post are often for fun quizzes, DIY projects, and silly articles. There is nothing inappropriate in any of the posts, either, which often tends to happen with some of the ads that I see in the world of social media. If you’re a Facebook buff, a Twitter celeb, or a Pinterest queen then I can’t recommend signing up for Twistfire Media enough! If you’re interested in signing up for Twistfire, you can email me at sarah.mush6794@gmail.com! 🙂
