Our Mid Century Modern Barstool Arrived! Dining Room Makeover (almost) Done!

I am so freaking happy!!!!!! The first (of two) Simpli Home Marana barstools arrived today. The other should be here on Saturday.

It took R about 10 minutes tops to put together and it is PERFECT and comfy.

I am absolutely in love with the mid century mod styling and the ability to adjust the height to regular chair height from bar height. It also swivels, too.

It’s also wide enough to accommodate larger bums, always a plus.

Best part, was only 127 bucks and had incredible reviews (no, I wasn’t solicited to do this review. I spent days trying to find the one I wanted online).

Maisie, of course, had to try it out immediately and finished her math lessons at the bar.

Cake the kitten tried his best to get in on the action, but failed miserably.

If you want one of your own, you can find it here at my amazon affiliate link:

Chalkboards are THE BEST for homeschooling!

I cannot possibly imagine homeschooling without a variety of chalkboards! They save paper (and trees) and can be used over and over again.

I prefer the Arteza brand chalkboard markers. They are easily cleaned, don’t drip, and are vibrantly colored.

All of the chalkboards we currently use (and other essentials) can be found (I purchased this on my own) on my Amazon affiliate list of HOMESCHOOL MUST HAVES here:

Berricle Ring Review- WOW!

12633313_10153577260639024_408859199_o

Yeah, I need a manicure…

I’ve never been into fake rings. My mother is a jewelry addict and she always was dripping in real diamonds. I’ve never been much of a diamond person myself, even though I own a ton of them (mostly, because of her). I will admit to being skeptical when I found out I’d be receiving this Berricle ring to review… now I am kind of flabbergasted- especially considering the price ($56.90- plus an additional 30% off coupon code right now).


Here is a LINK to the ring and the description:

“This solitaire with side stones ring is made of rhodium plated fine 925 sterling silver. Band measures 2.5mm in width. Features 1.86 carat oval cut cubic zirconia (9mm x 7mm) in 4-prong setting. Accented with 0.47 ct.tw round cut cubic zirconia in micro pave setting. Nickel free.”


When I opened the box, I couldn’t believe how real it looked (compared to my real diamond jewelry) and how heavy the weight was. It sparkles exactly like a real diamond!


 This one absolutely amazes me. Next to my expensive real rings, it actually looks better.

I was told that many people have been buying Berricle and other synthetic diamonds, such as ASHA and NSCD/Sona rings, as ‘stand ins’ for their real jewelry. I can now see why they would! These aren’t your run of the mill fakes!

With my genuine/antique/real rings, I am constantly worried that I will lose stones. It’s EXPENSIVE to get stones replaced- especially if you have heirloom pieces with one-of-a-kind gems.

Not with this ring. I plan on wearing it and not worrying about it. Also, I am curious to see how long it stays beautiful and shiny with regular use.

I will keep this on and see how it holds up in the future and report back.
