Whew, I feel like I’m just coming up for air from the past week and a half and all things Prime Day and the Barbie movie premiere! The movie was cute with no shortage of pink and sparkle and what a fun filled two days we had with Prime Day.

But it wasn’t all Prime Day and Premieres. Since the last newsletter I’ve also shared some things I’m totally loving (and you all are too) and some cleaning tips you’ll want to keep on hand. So keep reading for what you may have missed.

DIY Multi-Purpose Cleaner Recipe:

– 1/2 cup rubbing alcohol
– a few drops of Castile or dish soap
How do you remove Sharpie/ink stains?
This is one of the most popular cleaning questions I get but luckily there’s a simple solution….WD-40 or Amodex.
